Steve Glinis on last Monday bought the interest of his partner, Jim Davis, in the new Bon Ton Café business at the corner of Carrollton and Lamar Streets, and will conduct same in the future. The New Bon Ton Café has enjoyed a most successful business in this city for the past several years-always giving first-class service-and under the management and personal supervision of Mr. Glinis we are confident that the service in future will be even more satisfactory than in the past. The Commonwealth wishes for him that splendid success which he so thoroughly deserves.
