Did vou ever ko to Portland ntid
while there decide to buy a little
meat? And did you open it up
when you returned home nnd found
that it was not what you believed
it to be when you made the pur
chase? In fact, did it not become
nccessarv to throw nil or a portion

it not stnle. diseased lookitiK and
emitting n bad odor? If this has
