August 17, 1901. The subject of the bad packing of Irish eggs occupied the attention of several grocers' associations last year. It was thought the severe criticism would lead to improvement. We are sorry to hear that those hopes have been disappointed. Slight improvements have been here and there perceptible but generally speaking it is agreed the packing is very bad. What a difference is afforded by the admirable packing of continental eggs! Rarely is a broken egg found and the cases are cleaner and better in every way. {{COUNTERPOINT }}
