Widower Finds Housekeeper


His Appeal Gets Results When He Adds "Object, Matrimony."

PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania. — Joseph Duffel of Gloucester City, a shipworker and a widower for five months, found it impossible to get a housekeeper to answer an advertisement. So he added, "Object, matrimony."

Mrs. Rose Stafsky, 25 years old, also of Gloucester, a widow with three children ranging in age from 6 years to 6 months, found it impossible to get along comfortably without her husband. She saw the advertisement. The two were married at Elkton, Md.
