Hemingray’s Glass Works Will Start This Week


Is About Ready to Turn on the Fires and Start the Wheels.

Notes Gathered About the Factories

It has been but a few weeks since the Hemingray glass works was burned to the ground, yet it is now rebuilt and they expect to start the works during the present week, very probably tomorrow night.

The plant as reconstructed is better arranged than before and will in every way be equal to the old factory. When the machine shops are fitted up the boys will see that they are more complete than before.

The Over plant will be read to fire up by Sept. 1.

These two factories are now supplied with fire protection; the mains having been laid out that way and each factory has purchased 500 feet of hose. Should another conflagration get started they can make a hard fight towards driving back the flames.
