N. B. Wood prepared for the market is generally 4 feet ong, and a load in a wagon generally contains two lengths, or 8 feet in length. If a load is 4 feet high and 4 feet wide, it contains a cord. It was remarked above, that what is called one foot of wood, is 16 solid feet, and that 8 such feet make l cord. To find how many of these feet a pile or load of wood contains, it is necessary to find the number of solid feet in it, and then to divide by 16. When the load of wood is 8 feet long, we may multiply the breadth and height to gether, and then, instead of multiplying by 8, and dividing by 16, we may divide at first by 2, and the same result will be obtained,
