Couldn't Scare Them.
A Denver man who rents his motor
car by the trip or hour was seated In
.the machine with a friend, waiting for
business, on a downtown corner the
other afternoon, when a young couple
from the country came up. It was
plain to be seen they were bride and
groom. Tho young man from the
country said they had Just arrived
from central Kansas and wanted to
see Denver. He arranged for the
motor car man to take them for an
hour's trip and paid the charges In
advance. The country couple took the
back seat. Tbe driver's friend sat In
the front seat wlih him.
"I'm going to have some fun," said
the driver in a low tone to his friend.
"I'm going to run fast and scare those
He ran to the east edge of town and
then let the machine out to the limit
It rocked and Jumped till the driver's
friend became alarmed.
"Say," he said, "you'd better ease up
on it or you'll kill us all."
"Look around and see if the bride
and groom are scared," was the reply.
Before the other man could turn and
look the Kansas farmer touched the
driver on the shoulder.
"Hey, feller," he said, "here's anoth
er dollar. Make her run fast, will
you?" Denver Post.
A Novel Bottle.
In furnishing information concern
ing Calcutta's supply of the varioui
"soft" drinks, Consul General William
H. Michael refers as follows to an im
proved, bottle in use:
This bottle is bo blown as to con
tain in the neck a round glass stop
per, which is forced upward by the
gas in the bottle and holds the gas
perfectly. An expert can remove half
the contents of one of thpse bottles,
and by a shake force the ball up
into the neck, and thus preserve the
remaining half for future use. It la
an ingenious device, and every way
superior to the old-style corks. In
opening a bottle a wooden, cup-shaped
device, which fits in the hollow of the
hand and contains a short nipple, is
placed over and against the glass ball
stopper and pressed downward. This
causes the ball to drop down Into the
neck of the bottle, prevents too rapid
escape of gas and foam, and, H only
part of the contents 1b required, the
ball may be forced baok into the posi
tion as stopper. ,
