It is reported that Tillyer Bros., glass manufacturers at Winslow, N.J., have been restrained by order of Judge Nixon, of the United States Court, from selling Mason jars with a certain cap on account of alleged infringement of the right of the Consolidated Fruit Jar Co.

Wormser & Co., of Pittsburgh, have also been enjoined by the United States Court from making or selling any imitation of the Mason jars with monogram.

It is understood that the Consolidated Fruit Jar Co., proposes to proceed against all parties who handle jars which infringe their patent. If so, lively times may be looked for. The margin on fruit jars is so small it will scarcely pay to handle irregular goods.

It is reported that there is a bogus "Mason Improved" on the market, very few of which are air-tight. It would be well for parties selling jars to look into this matter. The issuing of the injunctions referred to will have a tendency to stiffen prices. Stocks are not large, and there is no reason for the present low prices, except in the offering of irregular goods.
