I THE ORNAMENTAL RASHER. The Committee of the House of Commons which is inquiring as to the practicability of marking meat, cheese, and other agricultural produce imported into this country met again yesterday, under the presidency of Sir Elliott Lees. Mr John Kellett, a member of the Liverpool City Council, and president of the Federation of Grocers' Associations, with a mem- bership of 10,000, complained that the retail provision trade, which would be largely affected, had never hitherto had an opportunity of ex- pressing its views on the subject of marking. By the leave of the Committee and to the By the leave of the Committee and to the evident amusement of the members, witness pro- duced hams of different kinds, and having laid them on the table, proceeded to descant upon the merits and characteristic features of each article. Brands were used as advertisements for the curer and not for the information of the I wholesale dealer or retailer, whose practical knowledge ought to enable them to tell at once the place of origin. If every piece of bacon and I ham sold were branded it would advertise more effectually than by other means the cut, cure, and quality of the meat, and at the same time would prove most objectionable to the consumer. How would any member of the Committee like his morning rasher marked with a rubber stamp or his grilled ham with American produce pricked on it by an electric needle ? "(Laughter.) The Committee adjourned until next Tuesday.
