Bottle Romance. Under the heading Bottle in sea six years wins rich bride for Chicago doctor,” a Chicago news- paper devotes considerable space to a romantic engagement, brought about through the instrumentality of a bottle. picked up on the Rhyl beach three years ago. The young lady is described as a beautiful society girl of Birmingham, who was holidaying tit, Rhyl in the summer of 1907, and chanced to find the fateful bottle while walking near the water’s edge with her brother and sisters. J-lie bottle, it seems, had been dropped overboard in mid-Atlaiitic nine years ago by Dr Carl A Johnson, of Chicago, and all that it contained was one of his professional cards, on which was written a re- uncut that tho tinder should return it to him. Thiough numerous letters which followed the young lady and the doctor learned all about each earlier, and they have decided to marry, although they have never met. The wedding is to take place shortly at Birmingham, after which the young couple will first visit the place where the, bottle was found and then lour the continent for omc months. Strange, indeed, are the tools which Cupid uses sometiuies uses in forcing the chains of love.
