It is necessary to protect the dealer as well as the farmer. If the dealer buys from an outside manufacturer, before the binder twine is allowed to come into the country, care should be taken to see that it complies with the law. If the twine is manufactured in this country it should be inspected before it leaves the factory. Many dealers would not be able to tell how many feet there were to the pound in a ball of twine, and would not, therefore, know whether it complied with the law or not. It is unfair to the dealer to place such a responsibility upon him unless you provide for an inspection such as I have suggested.
