Art. 10–Weights and Measures. Sec. 39–1001. Standards.
The standards of weights and measures in this state shall be those recognized or furnished by the United States. (1921) Sec. 39–1002. Same: Verification.
In addition to the state standards of weights and measures, there shall be supplied by the state such other weights, measures and apparatus as may be found necessary to carry out the provisions of this Act (Secs. 39–1001–39–1015), to be known as working standards. Such weights, measures and appa. ratus shall be verified by the state superintendent of weights and measures, or his authorized assistants, at his direction, upon their initial receipt and at least once in each year thereafter, by comparison with the state standards. When found accurate upon these tests the working standards shall be sealed by stamping on them the letter "W" and the date with seals which the state superintendent of weights and measures shall have and keep for that purpose. The state standards shall be used in making all comparisons of weights, measures, and weighing or measuring devices submitted for test in the office of the state superintendent of weights and measures.  Sec. 39–1003. Superintendent of weights and measures.
The commissioner of agriculture shall be exofficio state superintendent of weights and measures. He shall take charge of the standards adopted by this Act (Secs. 39–1001–39–1015] as the standards of the state, and cause them to be kept in a safe and suitable place, from which they shall not be removed except for repairs or for certification and he shall take all other necessary precautions for their safe keeping. He shall maintain the state standards in good order and shall submit them at least once in ten  years to the national bureau of standards for certification. He shall keep a complete record of the standards, balances, and other apparatus belonging to the state and take receipt for same from his successor in office. He shall annually, on the last day of September, make to the governor a report of all work done by his office.  Sec. 39–1004. Duties of superintendent.
The state superintendent of weights and measures shall have and keep a general supervision of the weights, measures, and weighing and measuring devices, offered for sale, sold, or in use in the state. When not otherwise provided by law the state superintendent of weights and measures shall have the power, and it shall be his duty to inspect, test, try, and ascertain if they are correct, all weights, measures, and weighing and measuring devices kept, offered or exposed for sale, sold, or used or employed
by any proprietor, agent, lessee, or employe in proving the size, quantity, extent, area, or measurement of quantities, things, produce, or articles for distribution or consumption, purchased, offered, or submitted by such person or persons for sale, hire, or award, and he shall have the power to and shall from time to time weigh or measure and inspect packages or amounts of commodities of whatsoever kind kept for the purpose of sale, offered or exposed for sale, or sold or in the process of delivery, in order to determine whether the same contain the amounts represented, and whether they be offered for sale or sold in a manner in accordance with law. He shall as often as he may deem necessary see that all weights, measures, weighing or measuring devices used are correct. He may for the purpose above mentioned, and in the general performance of his official duties, enter or go into or upon, and without formal warrant, any stand, place, building, or premises, or stop any vendor, peddler, junk dealer, coal wagon, ice wagon, delivery wagon, or any dealer whatsoever, and require him, if necessary, to proceed to some place which the state superintendent of weights and measures may specify, for the purpose of making the proper tests. Whenever the state superintendent of weights and measures finds a violation of the statutes relating to weights and measures, he shall cause the violator to be prosecuted.  Sec. 39-1005. Sealing.
Whenever the state superintendent of weights and measures compares weights, measures, or weighing or measuring devices and finds that they correspond or cause them to correspond with the standards in his possession, he shall seal or mark such weights, measures, or weighing or measuring devices with appropriate devices. [1921) Sec. 39–1006. Condemnation of incorrect weights and meas
The state superintendent of weights and measures shall condemn and seize and may destroy incorrect weights, measures, or weighing or measuring devices which in his best judgment, are not susceptible of satisfactory repair; but such as are incorrect and yet may be repaired, he shall mark or tag as "condemned for repairs." The owners or users of any weights, measures, or weighing or measuring devices of which such disposition is made, shall have the same repaired or corrected within ten (10) days, and they may neither use nor dispose of the same in any way, but shall hold the same at the disposal of the state superintendent of weights and measures. Any weights, measures, or weighing or measuring devices which have been "condemned for repairs" and have not been repaired as required above, shall be confiscated by the state superintendent of weights and measures.
