TO USE THE FOREGOING TABLE. First mcasure the breadth 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 line lill you come under the height in feet, and you will have the content in inches, answering the feet, to which add the consent 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 feet 10 inches high, required the content.

Thus, against 3 feet 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 3 feet, and height 2 feet 8 inches; required the content.

Thus, with breadth 3 feet 0 inches, and under ? feet atop, stands 36

inches ; apkl under 8 inches, stands 12 inches : now 36 and 12 make 48, the answer in inches; and 48-512=4 feet, or just half a cord.

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

Under 3 feet at top, stands 70; and under 9 inches, is 18: 70 and 18, make 88---12=7 feet 4 inches, or 7 It. I gr. 2 inches, the answer.
