many a quip and quibble…

From the February 1893 issue of American Druggist:

A New Form of Corkscrew

The professional joker has launched many a quip and quibble at the gentleman attempting to extract a refractory cork. The “magic” cork extractor shown herewith is to change all this. By its aid the cork is to be gently but none the less effectually extracted.

The cork will also retain its shape and usefulness and not have the hollow chested and despondent air noticeable in corks which have suffered from frequent attacks with an old-fashioned corkscrew.

How it will work in practice we have had no opportunity of demonstrating it; but theoretically, at least, it appears to be a valuable invention.

Definitely a valuable invention!!!
