STANDARDIZING THE SAUSAGE. I "What is a sausage" is a question which has often been asked, but which no one has yet been able to answer. "There is abso- lutely no legal or authoritative definition of a. sausage," says the "Lancet," and this fact is held acountable for certain frauds fre- quently practised on patrons of the sausage. "Surely it is time, says the journal, "that the sausage should be standardized, and that the selling of a commodity by that name should be an offence unless it is proved to contain a reasonable amount of meat. There is nothing to be said against a well-made sausage which is prepared with sound meat. On the contrary, it affords a valuable, con- venient, and appetizing food, and that being go, the sausage should be standardized so as to prevent its being loaded with a cheap substitute which is nearly always bread or broken and waste biscuits. We can see no difficulty about introducing such a desirable reform and abolishing a palpable fraud. The practice may not poison people, but it I certainly swindles them."
