American Klrwt Factory Irtiduced Them
Were Uiicd In 4000 n. C.
Bottles, at some time or other, play an
Important role In tho lives of most peo
ple. It frequently happens that a bottle
Is tho first object seen and clutched by
wee babies. Medicine bottles, standing
on a little table, aro often the last objects
seen by peoplo before embarking on tnelr
long Journey.
Between tho milk bottle and tho medi
cine bottle there are sometimes a wide
range of bottles both bb to sizo and con
tents. In an absorbing romance of American
business. It is an Interesting fact that
tho first industrial enterprise started on
the Xorth American continent was for
the purpose of manufacturing glass t
tles.Thln factory won erected at James
town, Virginia, In tho yenr MWI. It was
operated by some glassblowers who wero
among the early colonlstu who fettled In
tho OH Dominion.
During the present turbulent recon
struction era. whon much ls bclng"sald
and written about American mnnu
faiturers going after foreign export
trade, It In of morj than passing Interest
to recall that the products of that little
Jamestown bottle ractory were the first
articles ever xpored from North Amer
ica. But Just when this Now World industry
was getting nicely under way, along
came tho famous Virginia tobacco boom,
which soon became so popular that tho
gladsblowlng element of Uio colonists
decided they preferred hoeing and smok
ing to blowing,
It was not long thereafter, however,
.that the Indians ln and nround Virginia
made It known that they much preferred
glass beads to bottles, beef, brandy or
tobacco. Whereupon some of the pro
gressive and far-seeing Jamestown live
wires Induced some Italian glass workers
to cross tho ocean and convert tho old
bottle factory Into a -bead plant
A few years Inter somo promoters
started a bottle factory at Salem, Mass
achusetts. Tho town olllclals of that
period were evidently a hustling aggrega
tion on tho lookout for tho development
of their town. Thoy Immediately boosted
the new Indsutry by voting It a loan of
thirty pounds. Tho factory was not a
success, and Salem is Mill whistling for
its thirty pounds. y
During the tlmo the Dutch were run
nlng things on Manhttan Island, a bottle
factory was built near Hanover Square.
In 1751, a Dutch gentleman named Bam
lsr built glassworks In Brooklyn. The
first bottle blown by him bearing the
name and date, is now In the collection
of tho Long Island Historical society.
aiassboro, N, J., waa founded by a
colony of Qermnn glassmakers In 1773.
Hut it wan not until Ibe cloco of tho
Revolutionary War that . slass making
becanin h p"i iiiaiieiit Industry In America.
In ,S7 tho Massachusetts Legiuluturo
gavo n TloH.on glass company un exclu-
alve franchise to mako glass In that
Stnto for IB years. It turned out to be tho
first successful glass making plant In tho
United States. It Is reasonably possible
that this was tho first franchise over
granted by a legislative body.
Glass bottles wore first mado at Pitts
burgh, Pennsylvania, In 1706, and that
city Is still an Important glass making
Thero are now a to(al of 34S glass manu
facturing establishments In this country.
The aggregate capital Invested In these
Industries Is $163,000,000. Tho value of tho
total annual output Is $200,000,000 at the
factories, To operate these great plants
requires the services of 80,000 operatives.
More than seventy per cent, of the glass
manufactured In this country Is mado In
the four States of Pennsylvania, Ohio,
Indiana and West Virginia.
People first commonced using bottles
four thousand years beforo tho birth of
Christ. Tho first bottles montloned ln
history wero mado of the skins of
animals, mostly goats. Those are tho
kind of battles to which referenco Is mado
In tho Holy Scriptures. Strango to say,
skin bottles aro used to this day In South
ern Europe for carrying water and wine.
Certain Asiatic and African tribes also
' still use skin bottles for the transporta-
tlon of water. Many Italian peasants of
tho present generation uso dried gourds
as bottlos.
Tho ancient Egyptians were noted for
tlio exquisite workmanship and design of
tho bottlos which they wrought from
gold, Ivory, stone and alabaatvr.
