MR. ALLAN BARNSGRAHAM, of Craigallian, Milngavie, has sent us a copy of a letter, addressed by him to the Secretary of the Scottish Agricultural Organisation Society and printed in pamphlet form, which contains a number of points of considerable importance. MR. BARNSGRAHAM observes that Bran and Thirds play a most important part in the rearing and feeding of cattle, pigs, and poultry, and in the production of milk that these two products ought to be used to a much greater extent than they are now that large quantities are annually exported from this country and that the supplies ought to be jealously guarded. He expresses the hope that the Agricultural Organisation Societies of Great Britain and Ireland will in no way encourage the manufacture of condensed milkon the ground that it is not in the interest of the public health, nor in the interest of agriculture to encourage the manufacture of any article of food which can be made to keep indefinitely by artificial means. This appears to us to be a somewhat strange position to take up, unless the author's intention is to condemn the practice of keeping food products by means of chemical preservativesin which case we agree with him. But the proper preservation of many food products by legitimate and harmless methods, not involving the use of chemicals or of other objectionable devices, is surely permissible and valuable to the community. Properly prepared and sterilised condensed milk is a very useful commodity if it is what it purports to be. In this connection we may say, however, that condensed milk containing large quantities of added sugar ought not to be sold as condensed milk, but as condensed sweetened milk, or condensed milk and sugarthe proportion of added sugar being prominently disclosed while, in our view, the sale of condensed sweetened separated, or machineskimmed milk ought to be prohibited altogether.
