continue any length of time, tbe roads
would soon be worn down smooth, and
the movement ol era'm would be more
lively; but in the event of ' a

As we have used the word "Shoddy" a great many times and been asked the msin
ing ot the same, we here fiive tbe same, as tar aa our limited education will ajliiri
"Shoddy" according to the views of a great many Is n entirely sew word hat.
in? been Invented during our late war to designate a class ot men who wen i mm
and without eduuation, becoming suddenly very rich through Immense revernmeat
contracts ; but when the word is used in reference to goods' Webster tells ns It to:
"OKI woolen cloths and reluie goods torn into fibres la a mill, and rrpva lata vum
with the audition of a little Iresh wool. Simmonds." ' 1
But, then. Webster was not a clothier, and did not live In the age when there
were "ways that were dark aud tricks that were vain," and wnsequwtly couM
not give a correct definition. ' '
"Shoddy" In the German is '7Wm.nMrri, which means, "the remains,
scraps o wool made into fresh cloth." To get the correct dettnition w mSw
back to that most ancient and expressive language man bas ever nroduced tie
"Hebrew." In the times when tho Jewish religion was In its zenith P Sf'tl.!
the Priests and High-Priests were forbidden to wear In the TsanctnaTsnTthbtt that
resembled "Shoddy," (or what is called In the Hebrew Schdtfwatft
posed of "linen and cotton, cotton and wool, or anything of two different rrodnets
lor 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 irom being used in the Temple.
This class of goods Is manufactured and sold in large quantities to-day rlsbtln
our midst ; wo raise our voice in condemnation thereof, and tell tho nubile what It
is. Beware Buy no Shoddy goods, tor they are not cheap at any price: Shun
house which keeps, or is even suspected of keeping tho same. We were the first io
this city to raise our voice airainst it, lor we discovered that It was difficult U sell
"pure and holy" garments while "Shoddy" goods were in tbe market.
