TO USE THE FORÉGOING TABLE. First measure the bread and height of your load to the nearest average inch; then find the breadth in the left hand column of the table : then move to the right on the same linc till you come under the height in feet, and you will have the content in inches, answering the feet, to which add the content of the inches on the right and divide the sum by 12, and you will have the true content of the load in feet and inches.

Note.--The contents answering the inches being always small, may be added by inspection.

EXAMPLES. 1. Admit a load of wood is 3 feet 4 inches wide, and 2 leci 10 inches bigh, required the content.

Thus, against 8 ft. 4 inches, and under 2 feet, stands 40 inches; and under 10 inches at top, stands 17 inches: then 40+ 17=57 true content in inches, which divide by 12 gives 4 feet 9 inches, the answer.

2. The breadth being $ feet, and beight 2 feet 8 inches, required the content.-

Thus, with breadth laet o inches and uader e fed

atop, stands 36 inches ; and under 8 inches, stands 12 inches now 36 and 12, make 48, the answer in inches and 49+12=4 feet, or just hall a cord.

S. Admit the breadth to be 3 feet 11 inches, and height S feet 9 inches; required the content.

Under 3 feet at top, stands 70; and under 9 incheş, is 18:70 and 18, nako 88-19=7 feet 4 inches, or 7 ft. I Afr. 2 inches, the answer.
