COLLAPSE OF A BLAST FURNACE IN THE FOREST OF DEAN. On Saturday, just as a draw of molten pig iron was about to have taken place, an accident of an alarming- nature occurred at Messrs Henry Crawshay and Son's hot air blast furnaces at Cinderford. It appears that the inside lining of the furnace had been worn considerably, but without the slightest indication the brickwork suddenly collapsed, and an immediate blow out was an imperative necessity. This is a serious misfortune to the manufacturing district of the forest, the greater portion of raw material having been taken from the local furnace. It is feared that some months will elapse before the damage caused can be made good. The whole of the em- ployees at the furnaces will consequently suffer from enforced idleness. Messrs Crawshay's iron miners at Buck's Shaft Mine Works are con- sequently ordered to cease operations. This was the only blast furnace in the forest in work, and was built upon the most modern and improved method.
