THE GLASS MACHINE
A Number of Prominent Glass
Men Visited Reynoldsville
To Examine Plant.
1. W. Colburn, of Franklin, Pa., In
ventor of the Colburn glass making
machine in the Star glass plant, was
in Reynoldsville Monday, with a num
ber of other prominent glass men.
The machine, which has been Idle for
several weeks, was started for dem
onstration purposes. The reorgani
zation of the Colburn company, men
tion of which was mado in The Star
last week, has not been completed,
but probably will be this week, and
while no official of the company will
risk a guess as to when the machine
here will again be placed In opera
tion, confidence is expressed that it
will not be long delayed after the re
organization. THE HOUSE Of A THOUSAND
CANDLES WILL BE PRODUCED
At the Adelphi Theater To-morrow
A complete production of "The
House of a Thousand Candles" Is
promised on the representation at the
Adelphi theatre, Reynoldsville, Thurs
day, October 6th, 1910, at 8:30 p. m.
All the scenery used in Its four acts
is carried, while all the accessories
which make its representations so
different and unusual will be found
complete. Despite the air of mystery
that pervades the drama there is real
enjoyment in every line. It Is not
the ghastly that sends the cold chills
down the back or that repulses by
lurid touches, but It is the hidden
and unknown that Is handled with a
dash of comedy. It is because of this
that the book, as well as its drama
tization, has become so popular. C.
D. Winn, a gifted and veil known
character actor, assumes the role of
Bates, which Is decidedly the oddest
type given to the stage In many years.

NARROW ESCAPE FROM BEING
STRUCKBY PNG DEBRIS
Last Friday afternoon, about 1 20
o'clock, James Lusk was blasting
stumps about two hundred feet away
from bis home on Pleasant Avenue,
when, following an explosion, a piece of
a stump, weighing about forty pounds,
went through a large window at the
house. His daughter, Posie, was
Cleaning the window and had just
stepped back about a foot when the
window was shattered to pieces and she
got several small cuts about the faoe
and eyes, but tbey were not serious. If
the explosion had happened just a
moment sooner, she would probably
have got a fatal blow. Mr. Lusk has
used large quantities of dynamite In
his life, but this is the first accident he
has ever bad.
