Glass Affairs at Wallaceburg.
The Sydenham Glass Co., Wallaceburg, Ont., made a very good run in all their factories last season outside of shortage of small help in hot weather, which caused the shutting down of one of their tanks a little sooner than anticipated. The rest of the factories operated until the end of the season; in fact, the new plant equipped with Owens' machines was operated all summer and their pot furnaces until July 23, on milk jars and stoppers.
All their furnaces will probably be placed in operation again between Sept. 12 and 15. The are making considerable improvements all around the plant in the way of sewers and concrete buildings and are installing a large fan with colossal wind pipes running throughout their green glass department for the purpose of keeping the factory cool.
Lamp chimneys and other lines of flint glass ware are produced at the above factory in addition to a complete line of jars and bottles.
