Sec. 1. State standards.

The weights and measures received from the United States under joint resolutions of Congress approved June 14, 1836, and July 27, 1866, and/or such new weights and measures as shall be received from the United States as standard weights and measures in addition thereto, and in renewal thereof, and/or such weights and measures in conformity therewith as shall be supplied by the state shall, when the same shall have been certified by the national bureau of standards, be the state standards of weights and measures. [1945] Sec. 2. State and working standards to be compared once a year; standards to be sealed.

In addition to the state standards of weights and measures, provided for above, there shall be supplied by the state at least one complete set of copies of these, to be kept at all times in the office of the state sealer, and to be known as office standards; and such other weights, measures, and apparatus as may be found necessary to carry out the provisions of this act (Secs. 1–30], to be known as working standards. Such weights, measures, and apparatus shall be verified by the state sealer, or his deputy or inspectors, at his direction, upon their initial receipt, and at least once in each year thereafter, the office standards by direct comparison with the state standards, the working standards by comparison with the office standards. When found accurate upon these tests, the office and working standards shall be sealed by stamping on them the letters "NEV." and, in the case of working standards, the last two figures of the year, with seals which the state sealer shall have and keep for that purpose. The office or working 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 sealer, and the state standards shall be used only in verifying the office standards for scientific purposes. [1945] Sec. 3. Safe-keeping of standards.

The state sealer of weights and measures shall take charge of the standards adopted by this act (Secs. 1–30] as the standards of the state, and cause them to be kept in a safe and suitable place in the office of the state sealer, 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. [1945] Sec. 4. Standard units of various weights and measures.

b. The avoirdupois pound, which bears to the troy pound the ratio of seven thousand (7,000) to five thousand seven hundred and sixty (5,760), is divided into sixteen (16) equal parts, called avoirdupois ounces; the hundred weight consists of one hundred (100) avoirdupois pounds, and twentyhundred weight constitutes a ton. The avoirdupois ounce is divided into sixteen (16) equal parts called avoirdupois drams.

c. The troy ounce is equal to the twelfth part of the troy pound. The troy pennyweight is equal to the twentieth part of the troy ounce, and the troy grain is equal to the twenty-fourth part of the troy pennyweight.

d. The apothecary's pound is equal to the troy pound. The apothecary's ounce is equal to the twelfth part of the apothecary's pound. The apothecary's dram is equal to the one-eighth part of the apothecary's ounce. The scruple is equal to the one-third part of the apothecary's dram, and the grain is equal to one-twentieth of the scruple.

e. In all sales of coal, hay, and other commodities, usually sold by the ton or fractional parts thereof, the seller shall give to the purchaser full weight, at the rate of two thousand (2,000) pounds to the ton.

f. The standard gallon and its parts are the units of capacity for liquids, from which all other measures of liquids are derived and ascertained. The liquid quart is equal to the one-fourth part of the standard gallon. The pint is equal to the one-eighth part of the gallon. The gill is equal to the one-fourth part of the pint. The fluid ounce is equal to the one-sixteenth part of the pint. The fluid dram is equal to the eighth part of the fluid ounce, and the minim is equal to the sixtieth part of the fluid dram.

g. The barrel is equal to thirty-one and one-half (311/2) gallons. Two barrels constitute a hogshead. h. The standard half-bushel is the unit of capacity of substances other than liquids, from which all other measures of such substances are derived and ascertained. The peck, half-peck, quarter-peck, quart, and pint measures for measuring commodities other than liquid are derived from the halfbushel by successively dividing that measure by two.

i. Whenever wheat, rye, shelled Indian corn, barley, buckwheat, flaxseed, or oats are sold by the bushel, and no special agreement as to the weight or measurement is made by the parties, the bushel consists of sixty (60) pounds of wheat, of fifty-six (56) pounds of rye, of fifty-six (56) pounds of shelled Indian corn, of forty-eight (48) pounds of barley, of forty-eight (48) pounds of buckwheat, of fifty-six (56) pounds of flaxseed, and thirty-two (32) pounds of oats.

j. The standard yard is the unit or standard measure of length and surface from which all other measures of extension, whether lineal, superficial, or solid are derived and ascertained.

k. The yard is divided into three equal parts, called feet, and each foot into twelve equal parts, called inches. For measures of cloths and other commodities commonly sold by the yard it may be divided into halves, quarters, eighths, and sixteenths.

1. The rod, pole, or perch contains five and onehalf (512) yards, and the mile one thousand seven hundred and sixty (1,760) yards. The chain for measuring land is twenty-two (22) yards long, and divided into one hundred (100) equal parts, called links.

m. The acre for land measure shall be measured horizontally, and contains ten (10) square chains, and is equivalent in area to a rectangle sixteen (16) rods in length and ten (10) in breadth. Six hundred forty (640) acres constitute a square mile. [1945] Sec. 5. Designation of weights and liquid measure.
