Entrepreneur, 10, Sells Bottled Flood

July 23, 1993|Associated Press

ST. LOUIS — Want a wet piece of history? Two-ounce bottles of the flooded Missouri River are going for $15. Ten-year-old entrepreneur Paul Tipton won't sell you the Mississippi, though. It's too muddy.

The bottle is glued to a marble base, which also features a plastic reproduction of the Gateway Arch. Paul had sold 86 when a National Park Service ranger said he could not sell souvenirs on the Arch grounds. Paul, however, plans to keep selling and share the money with the American Red Cross.
