A Muncie Fad.
It may be impossible to make a whistle out of a pig's tail, but some Muncie glass workers intend to make glass watch charms out of a dog's bone. Robert Hemingray, the veteran glass manufacturer, had a dog that was very popular around the factory. The canine died a few days ago at the age of 20 years. His bones are now being dried and will be crushed, and with soda-ash, limestone and sulphur, will be melted into glass, which will be worked into watch claims [sic] charms to be worn by the employes as a memento of 'Rodger,' the faithful dog. — Anderson Times.
