It happened that the first machine was
malting whiskey bottles and much
comment was heard.
The machines which whirled their
arms from out the great pot of molten
glass and in a few operations
dumped a completed bottle into a
chute; were the chief objects of interest
to the visitors. Many of litem
were capitalists, hankers, railroad officials
and representatives of many
