The C. H. Over window glass and the Hemingray flint glass factories at Muncie, Ind., were destroyed by fire on Saturday last. The total loss will be $200,000, insurance $80,000. The fire caught from a spark from a Lake Erie and Western locomotive falling among a car load of packing straw. Both factories were among the largest of their class in the United States and will be re-built.
