When necessary, a large cork may be made to fit a small bottle, if treated as shown in the sketch. Two wedge-shaped sections are cut from the cork, at right angles to each other, as shown in Fig. 1. The points are then squeezed together (Fig. 2) and the end inserted in the bottle (Fig. 3). Wet the cork slightly and the operation will be easier. - Contributed by James M. Kane, Doylestown, Pa.
