Mr. MOTHERW ELL:
The practice simply grew up, like Topsy, overnight as it were, until finally it was legalized. Later we began to discover the evils of the practice. As a matter of fact, shorts as we have them now, even without screenings, are not much else than fine bran. Some people like things mixed, but there is no reason why we should not know what we are getting in our by-products from the mill, and they should be standardized like everything else.
