Section 41 deals with articles of food. What does " butter which is dirty " mean?
I am afraid that is one of those troubles like defining stale milk. It is a question of fact.
Does it mean intrinsically dirty or dirtied by falling on the road?
Any foreign matter.
Would it go to a jury?
No, to a District Justice.
Would butter with a good many hairs be dirty?
Any foreign matter. You cannot prescribe the standard. The District Justice would have to decide for himself.
It is a question of degree. I have an amendment here in Section 41: " Immediately after the words ‘ sale,' in line 28, to insert the words ‘ or exchanges or barters or for the purpose of resale acquires by purchase, exchange or barter.'"
What is the idea of bringing in barter?
There is a lot of barter done in butter.
It looks rather formidable but it is not.
Amendment accepted and passed.
