Salem, N. J., July 31. - At the Salem Glass Works three furnaces were operated until the end of the blast. Shipments are brisk with good prospects for an early start in September. The shops at this place have done fairly well this season. There will be very few changes made here this summer.

The office at the Salem plant was broken into last Sunday evening. The writer does not know the extent of the loss outside of wrecking of the safe.

At the Gayner Glass Works the shipments are large with stocks light. They expect to resume early in September. The fire went out at this plant on July 19. The furnace they had trouble with early last season will be torn down and a new one will be erected in its place. It will be the same size, seven rings. We understand this firm have a large order for grape juice bottles.

Local workers are now enjoying their vacation, boating, fishing and camping. It is about three hours' ride in a good motor boat to Fortescue, the place for fishing, than which there is no better anywhere on the Delaware.

Charles and Fritz Klein have returned from Terre Haute and are now on a cruise on the Delaware in their motor boat, Mina.

Curley Flynn is spending a few days in Salem before going to Marion. - Fort Worth.
