TARE AND TRET. DEFINITION.–Tare and Tret are allowances made the buyer by the seller, for the weight of the box, cask, &c.

K

Tare is an allowance for the weight of the cask, and is generally at a certain rate per cwt. or per barrel, &c.

Tret is an allowance for the waste by dust, and is generally at the rate of 4 lb. per every 104 lb. &c.

Cloff is an allowance made the buyer for the turn of the scale, and is generally at 2 lb. per 3 cwt.

Gross is the whole weight of the goods, together with the weight of the cask, or box, &c. that contains them.

Suttle is when part of the allowance is deducted.

Neat is the remainder after all deductions are made.

CASE I.

When the tare is at a certain rate per hhd, &c. RULE.--Multiply the tare per box, or hhd. by the number of boxes, &c. subtract the product from the gross weight, the remainder is the neat weight required.
