The glass works at Cadiz, O., that were operated on fruit jars last season are advertised for sale or rent; but nobody seems willing to take hold of them. This is another practical illustration of what becomes of factories built solely because inducements are offered by some town to build a glass factory. There are other just as forcible illustrations in various towns in this part of the country. Practical glass workers started the Cadiz works, but failed the first year, and never since that time has anybody been able to take hold of them and make any money. Even last year, when the fruit jar trade was the cream of all the glass business, the receiver who operated the works failed to make any money, and is unwilling to try it again. At Canton, Massillon, Ravenna, East Liverpool and other towns the same kind of idle factories can be found. It requires business tact as well as practical experience to make the glass business a success.
