Glass Works to Start

Repairs Being Rapidly Pushed:

Big Force Will be



The old Elmer Glass Works which have been idle for a time, were recently purchased by Jonathan Parker, of Bridgeton, and the work of repairing them and erecting new furnaces preparatory to startingwith [sic] starting with a large work force of workmen is being pushed rapidly forward. The big smokestack which has not been considered safe for several years has been torn down and a new one will take its place. New roofs and other needed improvements are being put in place and the Duffield blowing machines will soon be put to work giving employment to a large force. Insulators will be a chief product of the factory.

The old glassworks have run irregularly and only a few persons have been employed at any time, for about four years. Business will doubtless be pushed to the utmost capacity in the big factory as soon as furnaces are completed.
