    ^I know!
    I don't get that one either. Also, there was no substance at the time that could serve that purpose.
    (I really want that cane, too. Funny but it does every extra feature except the one that it should the most. Becoming a seat.)

    Yes, I used the ceramic stamp wetter drum on my mother's home desk when I was a kid, worked very well. And today I have a water bottle with sponge, not only for stamps but sealing envelopes, usually at Christmas when we have many dozens to send.

    And I'm puzzled why the author found the ladies bicycle guard so difficult to understand. It was to keep long dresses & skirts from getting entangled in the rear wheel spokes. I remember still seeing girls bikes with variations on the dress guard when I was young, because a young lady might ride her bike to school, where pants couldn't be wore to class.
