Ihe Way of Ita
It has boon HAi.l that no material in
vented by man has been of more ttervioe
than glass. It in certainly one of the
greatest necHMftlos of civilize! life, ootn
fttft into use in almost evi-r d'-partrnent
of activity, and Mb one of the most in
teresting iniltistriea. How the process of
making it was ever discovered id a mys
tery, and it taxes the imagination to con
ceive some happy accident by which the
posafbAitV of such a substance was dis
ci., , ,1. Tin- mi, -i. til Pliny Iihh h yarn,
which per)iHii he believed to be the ex
plnnation, but notMxIy believes it today.
He sas that some Phoenician sailors
landed on the Iwnk of a river in Pales
tineund looked itlniut for stones on which
to it-st the kettle in which thoy wore to
cook their foo l. Hm newt thevoould tind
were lumps of '"nitriiru" (Kohably soda
in mount i When the had become af
fected by the tire they fused with the
und anil produced a traiisjiareiit liquid,
which tltllOwl and Iwcmiin crude glass.
This pleusimt fiction is discarded as
throwing m lilit on the matter, because
the heat of a cuitip tire would be entirely
in illlcii im i rwdnce the result de
scribed. The K'"'"'T iinti-juity of the industry is
clearly proven by the discovery of ves
sels with inscriptions to show that they
could not have been made later than 3,000
years before the Christian era. Glass
making was for many centuries confined
wholly to vases and other forms of hol
low ware, and although plute glass was
known as early as the Third century,
more than a thousand years passed be
fore it came into general use for win
dows except in churches. It is said that
the first window glass taken to England
for ecclesiastical purposes was carried
there by the Abbot Benedict in 674 A. D.
As late as the Sixteenth century it was a
mark of great wealth to have glass In
the windows of one's house.
The industry was introduced into this
country soon after settlements had been
established, und though in the early colo
nial days it did ii"t make much headway
it lias now become a very important
feature of our manufactures, and iu
some depart inents it rivals any produc
tions in the world. It took Its prosper
ous start soon after the end of the Revo
lutionary war. Iu the tiner ornamental
grades no one would affirm for a moment
that the famous products ,f Venice and
Bohemia an duplicated here They may
never be, as some of the ingredients are
uot found in America, and the expense
of importation is so great us practically
to dear tmestic enterprise m this direc
tion. America's best hold on the glass in
dustry is in the way of plate glass for
windows and the luunutacture of bottles.
There are luuuy prosperous factories in
both these departments scattered all
over the country, and the most marked
improvements in uiechaiucul contriv
ances during the lust quarter of a cen
tury have I introduixl ly American
manufacturers. The extent of the in
dustrv at present commre) curiously
with the disheartening results of colo
nial enterprises. That there was a fac
tory in Gloucester, Mass . in tier hitter
part of the Seventeenth century is clear
from some vague records, and the name
of a portion of the town. Glasshouse
field Washington refers in bis diary
to a factory at New Haven, Conn. In
other places it is known that the in
dustry was established, and disappeared
because liutcli un l Gerruuns could get
the product to this market cheaper than
we could make it. Probably the oldest
house in tie- country now is the Whitney
works, at (i lssnls.ro. X. J. Bottles only
are mude there. The factory was etul
lished nearly Iff vears ago. Plute glass
began to is- made in America as recently
as lttoil, ut Lenox, Mass. This factory
is still in existence, hut its work is mainly
directed to "rough plate;" that is. glass
intended tor conservatories, hothouses
and other uses where a clear, polished
surface !-, n A MMBNrJ,
Probnlilv Uli people i hn) If asked
w rial glass was maoc ot would answer
"sand.'' So it i- in great part. Sand of
a certain oiwractM is the main ingredi
ent, tmt not necessarily the most impor
tant. It kt an old puzzle problem to de
termine which factor of u number, say
su, is ,,t tne greater importance, g 0r
10. Ten is certainly tho greater factor,
but of whut use would it lie in consti
tuting t'O if it were not for insignifi
cant little -., with t;luss Sand is the
great '--i lactor iu hulk, but with it must
be used other Hin-.tari , s'sla, potash,
lime, magnesia, alumina, oxides of iron
auu lead, etc . one or mote ,,r these ia
different proportions, uccordmg to the
St le of glass desired.
Of course! exclaim the ninety -nine, we
might have mentioned mIu or potash U
we hud supposed that such u trifling in
gredieiit as '( to 1 per cent of either
were to Is' included iu the answer. Very
good, out unhappily for American manu
facturers these trifling ingredients are
absolutely necessary, uud sometimes they
are very hard to get. This is especially
the cuse with makers of hollow ware. To
make s good bottle soda is necessary,
and soda of u particular kind which has
to be imp -irted. It our manufacturers
of buttles could gel the soda, eveu from
Europe, at what it actually costs, they
could moi e tiiuti compete with the Ger
mans. As It i-. QaVaM beer bottles and
the like are crowding our markets every
year and making the domestic manufac
turers hustle to secure a reasonable profit.
The trouMe comes that the tariff schedule
compels Americans to pay per cent
more than its vuiuc for the soda they
need in their work. This difference on
a small factor m their industry prevents
t hem from entering the field as fair com
petitors with Germany.
The Germans make lietter bottles, as
American manufacturers admit, at rates
that are cheaper than we run make them.
Another way of conducting the industry
In this element of it came under the wri
ter's observation lost summer. There is
a hue porcelain factory at Bonn, Ger
many the doors of which on one side
opendirectU ti.ori the Rhine. This fac
tory needs from foreign parts not so
small a factor us soda, but the very base
of iu product, sand. It comes in boats
from Scot inn. i directly up the Rhine to
the doors of the fat-lory, und is there dis
charged without a suggestion of duty.
The cost of product ion is, therefore, nor
mal, uninfluenced, to the injury of the
consumer, by a tux levied for tiie pur
pose of "protecting" owners of sand hills
or makers of porcelain

A tirrat Prairie fire
The gorgeous iltuminati n in the south
on Tuesdsy night which whs first at
tributed to a bay stack fire in either the
lo'wer end of Rock Island county or in
Muscatine county, was caused, it is now
learned, by an immense prairie fin- which
started in Mercer county and spreading,
crossed tbe line into Rock Island county.
The sky was covered with leaden colored
clouds which afforded a striking relief to
the bright illumination caused by the
miles of flaming fields A farmer near
Copperas creek started a fire in his pas
ture and the stubble and dead grass burn
ing like tinder, tbe flames soon got be
yond control Hweepintr on fiercely as
they were fanned by the gala the flames
destroyed everything in their path.
Pralrii; and swamp grass, brush, dead
trees, fences and even two barns were
consumed and a blackened route through
tbe charred timber snd desjlate fields
Lows how the Are raged The reflection
from the burning dis'iict in the
river, thirty miles below here, ma. li
the stream look like a veritsble sea of
fire, while the immense luminous npects
cie In the heavens made the inhabitants
of surrounding cities for a distance of as
far ss Mi miles, think that a terrible con
fisgration was raging, the location vary

ent places and all wbo witnessed it being
deceived aa to ita actual location. No ex
tensive damage wss done aside from the
destruction of a number of fences and a
barn In this county and a gran
ary ia Mercer county. It is no ex
aggeration to state that it created more
alarm and Inquiry than any fiery specta
cle seen In this neighborhood for years.

Orion, over in Henry county, is in a
turmoil of excitement over the in
dictment by the Henry county ;rand jury
of Adam Mealman, a wealtiy farmer
living three miles north of tba place, for
incest, tbe charge having been brought by
his youngest daughter, Stella, iged Bine

Ditpnteh, is tbe father-in law f John H
Wilson, who attempted to di fraud tbe
Modern Woodmen out of $8,000 insur
ance by pretending te have been drowned
in Rock river, and then skipping to Cans
ada. Mealman, though wcaltl y, is pos
sessed of a nature which bar involved
him in various feuds with his neighbors.

daughters to marry a couple f tramp,

Thus Mealman is held unih r two in
dictments, one of which he msy have to

age. and a widower. State's Attorney
Graves, of Henry county, state that the
brute virtually admits his gui t, which
extends through a long period in fact.it

the fsct that Mealman has been recog

H artiaae a Failure In Her S nse.
Mrs Jamea Gillett, of Rock Island. for
merly Mlsa Carrie Godfrey, of Moline, has
experienced bard timea since she became
a wife, and tbe result ia a separation of
the couple. It is just about a year ago
since she married Jamea Gillett, a
piano and organ tuner, who for some
time bad been at work in the three cities.
At first the msrriage is said to have been
a yery happy one . He attended strictly
to his work for a time and everything
was as lovely as a summer aky. Bui
the wedded bliss was of short dur
ation, and she realizes that mar
riage is a failure in tbe first degree
at least with a man of the
character Mr. Gillett is said to possess.
A sbort time ago Mr. Gillett began a life
of drinking and dissipation. He not only
used up all the money he could earn, but
also sold the furniture out of their little
home. In a drunken condition he would
come home und beat his wife. Finally
becoming tired of this life of torture, she
decided to leave him. This she did and
will suexfor a divorce. The couple lived
on Twenty-first street. Rock Island
