It is reported in the daily press that the United Master Bakers, in their recent convention at St. Louis, have decided to discontinue the practice of pasting labels on loaves of bread. This is an eminently rational decision. It is apparently a small matter at first sight, but the unhygienic possibilities of the practice readily suggest themselves. It is not a pleasant thought that the union label, pasted on an important article of food, has been stuck there by the spittle of the workman, but it is a probability that can not very well be ignored. We all of us have to eat dirt more or less throughout our lives. but this does not imply we should be compelled to do so needlessly. The bakers' decision is a commendable one. and shows that they are properly awake to hygienic demands.
