NEARLY EVERY GLASS PRODUCT
The Diamond Flint Glass Co., of Montreal, Can., control two of the most complete glass manufacturing institutions on the continent. Unlike other glass manufacturing concerns which make a certain class of ware the distinct feature of this company is that they manufacture practically everything except plate and window glass. Besides the reliable and skilled artisans on the bench, wide mouth bottle and fruit jar machines, lid and tableware presses, finishing machines, off-hand lamp chimney, paste mold, pressed ware shops, etc., are being operated during the season at the Montreal establishment, while at Toronto a general line of green and flint ware is the bulk of the output. The two tank furnaces at Montreal still in operation will be kept busy until the end of June. One distinctive feature about the company's works is that practically all the coal and raw materials for a season's run have to be secured during the summer stop. This firm's coal and sand pit at Montreal would make a dozen of any other ordinary concern. Other material bins are equally roomy. There are cutting, grinding, etching, decorating, machine and other departments; in a ward, they are amply prepared to take care of the increasing demand for their output, which is keeping pace with the ever-increasing population of Canada.
