ing ol the same, we here give the tame, at
"Shoddy" according to the views of
Ing been Invented during our late war to
and without education, becoming suddenly very rich through Immense gOToramtal
contracts ; but when the word Is uted in reference to goodt, Tfebiter tells as It Is:
"Old woolen clothi and reiuie goodi tern into fibret In a mill, and re. Dun Into ram
with the addition of a little (rein wool.-Siminond."
But, then, Webster was not a clothier, and did not live in the age when there
were "ways that were dark and tricks that were vain." and conaanuantiv pnuid
not give a correct definition.
"Shoddy" In the German U nTrutimer-WolU,n which meant, "the remains,
tcraps of wool made into fresh cloth." To get the correct definition we matt go
back to that most ancient and expressive language man has ever produced, the
"Hebrew." In the times when the Jewish religion was in its zenith, we see that
the "rietts and High-Priests were forbidden to wear in the sanctuary anything that
rete, '-"d "Shoddy," (or what Ii called in the Hebrew "Schadnesa") garment! com
posed of "linen and cotton, cotton and wool, or anything of two different products,"
for it was considered unholy to wear "Shoddy Goods" during devotion.
So you will perceive that the word is not new but was used before the Chris
tian era. Of course the goods were used to such an extent that it required a law to
keep It from being used iu the Temple.
This class ot goods is manufactured and sold In large quantities to-day right la
our midst ; we raise our voice in condemnation thereof, and tell tho publio what it
is. Beware. Buy no Shoddy goods, lor they are not cheap at any price; Shun a
house which keeps, or Is even suspected of keeping the time. We were the first In
tills city to nice our voice against It, for wo discovered that It was difficult to sell
"pure and holy" garments while "Shoddy" goods were in the market.
