CASH OR CREDIT. The Straws You Suck Soda Through Cost Fortune a Year United States Spends Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars a Year for This Apparently Insignificant Trifle. . fc S BEAT oaks from little acorns i grow" and mammoth fortunes are made not only from small beginnings, but from small things. How matv rple think of a fortune in connection with the paper straws that are given them every time they go to the confectioner's or the milk depot or the bar and order something to drink t Thees paper straws are common as pins and needles thes- days; nobody ever gives them a thought. They serve to Ssuck up" the drink, or for the nervous person to break and bend and twist as he talks over the concoction before him, but nobody ever thinks how much these little straws cost the country in a year, and how much the manufacturers are making from them. H. L. Potter, who spends from ?160 up wards everv year for these little straws for the use" of the customers of his cold drink places in El Paso, has been look-, ing into the economies and history of the thing and iinds that the country spends hundreds of thousands of dollars a rear for them; also that the man who invented them, though he had to borrow money to begin their manufac ture, died worth a quarter of a million and the wealth of his estate has since increased each year far and above the previous year, regardless of what the surviving members of the family manage to spend. Thirty years ago at every fountain real straws were used, and these were frequently cracked and rendered useless. Everv bar had a glass of wheat Straws, but they did not fill the bill. ,It re mained for a Washington genius to in vent the paper straw, which filled at the same time a long-felt want and the inventor's pocket. Marvin Stone was a young man at the national capital a young man with much brains but few pennies, lie was engaged in the business of making paper ti'bes for mailing cases. One day ho went into a bar for a julep and tried in lain to get a straw that was not a dis grace to the family. So he went back to the shop-, made a bundle of paper straws, brought "them to the barkeeper as a present and they "took' at once. A friend supplied capital and Stone went at once into the paper straw business. Within a few years he was ji wealthy man, and when he died a few years ago his estate was rated at $250,000 and his straws were selling by the hundreds of gross throughout the world.
