ORIGIN OF BARREL UNKNOWN
This Receptacle for All Manner of
Things Has Been Used Since
Nobody knows who invented the
barrel. It has been used since time
Barrels are used for all manner of
articles, solid and liquid. There are
barrels for holding sugar, salt, apples,
potatoes, and so on for all sorts of
oils, from the heaviest lubricants to
the most volatile products of petro
leum for beers, wines, and all sorts
of beverages. It is contended that
the barrel is the strongest structure
Of its size that can be made from an
equal amount of wood. Its contents
are frequently the strongest that can
be made from liquids.
The barrel has tremendous power
of resistance to pressure from within
and from without. A barrel set on
end will, it is claimed, support half
the weight of a railway car while the
truck is taken from beneath for re
pairs. Tet the primitive barrel is put
together without nails, screws, bolts,
or pinsit 1B entirely self-fastened.
The barrel is smaller at its ends
than it is in its middle, so that the
wooden hoops, self-locking, may be
driven on, tightening the staves and
pressing-the heads into the chines.
Although not calked, barrels are wa
ter-tight. A small barrel is a keg, a
big barrel is a cask, and a still bigger
barrel is a hogshead.
