ROMANTIC TALE 'OF A 8UIT.
A Ifill Owac Marries a Lawyer, Adopts
Bar CUaat aad Kseepes a Verdict.
"How did yon come to marry?" The
Question was asked by an acquaintance of
a prosperous looking man of about 40 yean
ot age, who amt near a window in the sit
ting room at the Ulrard. .
"Well," ha replied, after a little hesita
tion, "I'll tell you. -At he age of 85 my
father died. Being his sole heir, my mother
having died previously, I found upon my
hands a roUtog mill in the venter of the
state. I took full charge of the works, bnt
didnY ran them six months when a little
orphan boy employed there was seriously
injured, in fact, crippled lor life. He was
under the legal -age, and, besides, the acci
dent was the result of a gross piece of neg-
llgenoe on tne part ot my superintendent.
"The child soon obtained friends to help
him. They brought suit and . obtained
Va,0ub damagee. I had retained the best
counsel that I could find, but It availed
nothing. Of course we appealed, but the
supreme court put their seal of approval
upon the finding of the. lower tribunal.
One of the particularly curious things
about the matter was that the child was
represented by a female lawyer, compara
tively young and very attractive and en
tertaining. . .
"Now the entire plant, mortgaged as it
was, was worth otuy about 00,000, so when
the judgment had been satisfied and other
costs and chargea had been paid I found
myself in very tightened circumstances. -
"Now cornea the curious part of the story.
The female lawyer shortly after tbe case
bad been finally settled adopted the boy.
Sharp trick, ehf Well, mine waa sharper.
Six months after I met the lady at a recep
tion. 1 must confess that her charms com
pletely captured me, and I waa not long in
discovering that I waa in love. - Certain
eirenmstanoea which I need not mention
led me to at least hope that my feelings
were reciprocated. I lost no time in pro
posing, and to my Infinite delight was ac
cented. We were married about eighteen
months after the trial, and you can rest as-
anred that from the first I was very much
attached to our little adopted son." And
be looked into the faces ot his auditors and
smiled knowingly. Philadelphia Press.
, " . ' Tbe Aerophor.
In weaving sheds a humid atmosphere is
of equal importance, otherwise there is a
continual breaking of threads and other
prejudicial occurrences. The necessary
-diffusion of moisture has hitherto been se
emed at the expense of the comfort, and
even tha health -of the factory hands, by
the projection of steam .into, tbe atmos
phere, and by dampening the floors with
water. ; In either case damage is caused to
tbe machinery and buildings, while an un
healthy atmosphere ia created iu which
the operatives are obliged to work. In or
der to obviate all this the aerophor has
been Invented by a German engineer, and
is largely in use in Germany. Tbe aerophor
is an apparatus for distributing moisture
in tbe form of a very tine water cloud,
which may be either cold or warm. Tbe
apparatus, which is not large, contains no
movable parts, and a single pressure pump
can work any number of aeropbore.
The contrivance, which is fixed just un
der the ceiling at given points, consists of
two separate nozzles, one for propelling tbe
air by creating an induced current, and
the other for moistening it. . A jet of water
under pressure is projected through a hori
zontal uozzle into a casing in which then
is a vertical OD&le. The jet from tbe hori
zontal nozzle causes the induced current
of air to act upon the water entering the
casing at Its upper part through the verti
cal nozzle. The water is passed Into tbe
atmosphere in the form of a fine diffusive
cloud, the large drops of water being caught
aud retained by the apparatus. The aero
phor will only project into tbe atmosphere
such particles ot water as are capable of
being absorbed immediately, so that dum-
aie to the machinery or fabric 18 impossible.
In tbe same way, the atmosphere not being
super-saturated, there ia no injury to
health. London Times.
Educate the Girl.
"Educate the girls," says an exchange.
"and tbe boys will soon be there." They
will, indeed, if the girts an tolerably good
looking. And they won't wait until the
coarse of instruction is fully completed
either. 1 have known a young man to get
more than half through his courting be
fore he thought to ask his girl whether Bbe
had any education or not. So it won't do
to depend too much on such maxims as the
above; they are apt to mislead. Should
the father of an attractive daughter defer
her education, thinking tbat tbe boys
would keep away in cousequence, be would
find that he had made a mistake. They
will come just as readily as they would
were shea whole female seminary of learn
Then, on the other hand, if you push the
education of a homely, disagreeable girl
with the utmost diligence, will the boys
"be theref" Not much they won't. They
will go around the corner and sit np with
the pretty girl who never saw the inside of
a school house in her life. This is perhaps
wrong, but it is the way the world goes
witn tbe young and thoughtless. When
Adam was courting the fair Eve, did he in
quire what seminary she graduated from?
Lna ne examine her in arithmetic Enslish
grammar, logic, geography and the use of
the globesf Of course he didn't. He
didn't can a cent whether she knew beans
or not. She wasn't educated, and yet Adam
was then, Eli. Education is a very good
thing for girls to have, but you can't bank
on it altogether in winning husbands.
