THE GLASS BLOWERS HERE
An Interesting and Educational Exhi

The Howell's Famous Glass Blowors
arrived here Monday. Those wonder
workers, we learn, come direct from
Sumter where tbey had been specially
engaged as a feature of the Festival.
These expert troupe of glass workers
should not be classed with any other
glass blowing exhibition traveling.
They are, without a question or doubt,
the champions of the art of glass man
ipulating. Their spinning and weav
ing department must be seon to be ap
preciated. In this department thoy
spin and weave glass, making fabrics
of this brittle substance just as soft
and flexible as silk. Their celebrated
glass stoam engine, in constant oper
ation under steam pressuro should be
seen by all. It is certainly a wonderful
piece of mechanism. Words cannot
describe Its beauty. It is made out of
over 11,000 thousand pieces of vari
gated colored glass, and Is considered
by experts to be a wonderful creation.
They will give their first exhibition to
night, Tuesday, at 7 30 p. m.j and will
give dally exhitions on Wednesday.
Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 2
to 5 and from 1 30 to 10 30 nightly.
They will exhibit In the store formerly
occupied by Beehive, Main St., next to
post offioe, all this week. The price of
admission will be 15 conts. Every per
son will be presented with a beautiful
glass souvenler free. Everything thoy
manufacture Is given away free to their
