Effervescing danger

Luray panoramic

May 18, 1911 — Otis Rickard, inspired by near and distant rumblings of giant powder and dynamite, and seeing himself a contractor when Luray may perhaps at some day get its third supply of water from Jeremy’s Run, accompanied by other lads as prankish as himself, the other day undertook to confine soda and water in a bottle.

These elements wouldn’t be confined, Otis furnishing the evidence by a badly wounded eye.

For a time it was feared the sight had been destroyed.

In the future he’ll keep his eyes open for this effervescing danger signal.
