To test the general accuracy of these gauges, frequent actual measurements should be made at the different ports. Actual gauge, however, will be allowed only when applied for prior to delivery of the merchandise, or when the customs officers shall ascertain that the average gauge differs from the actual gauge.

The Department's circular of April 7, 1876, relating to the average gauge of certain bottles, is hereby revoked.
