What Is a quart? The fact that we bavi
quails of two capacities brings about a little
misunderstanding. Dry measure, ss the
name Indicates, Is lor measuring grains of all
sorts, potatoes, berries, and everything that
Is not liquid. Wben tbe merchant sells these
artloles by tbe liquid quart, he Is not selling
km mo xnhln InnhM: In lh(
H quni ii vuoiq my v(? vmw.v ??.y
llquidiquart there are 5.77 6 lncbea. There an
32 quarts to the bushel dry measure: liquid
measure 37.4 quarts. So the sellerjtnakee &
quarts on the bushel when be sells by llqak
measure. Take white peas for example. Th<
price Is cow IS cents a quart. If the Mllei
wcfuId use tbe tbe dry measure he would gel
$4.80 a bushel. UslDg liquid measure ha geti
5 91, or 81 cents more on tbe bushel. In largt
cities and In some not as large as this tbe drj
measure quarts are used. We suggeat to th<
city council tbat tbey take this matter u;
and put our town In line with other cltlei
and cause all persons, whether merchants oi
farmers to adopt tbe proper measure In bay
lng and selling. Business has to oome to II
