3 ft. = 1 yd. 27 NOTE 2. — A cube is a solid bounded by six square and equal sides. If the cube is 1 foot long, 1 foot wide, and I foot high, it is called a cubic or solid foot. If the cube is 3 feet long, 3 feet wide, and 3 feet thick, it is called a cubic or solid yard. Since each side of a yard, as represented in the diagram (Art. 93), contains 9 sq. ft. of surface, it is plain, that if a block be cut off from one side, one foot thick, it can be divided into 9 solid blocks, with sides 1 foot in length, breadth, and thickness, and therefore will contain 9 solid feet; and since the whole block or cube is three feet thick, it must contain 9 solid feet X 3 3 ft. = 1 yd. solid feet; or 3 solid feet X 3 X 3 27 solid feet. Hence, To find the contents of a cubic body, multiply together the numbers denoting the length, breadth, and thickness. MENTAL EXERCISES. 1. In 2,cubic feet how many cubic inches ? In 4 cu. ft. ? 2.

WINE OR LIQUID MEASURE. 95. Wine or Liquid Measure is used in measuring all kinds of liquids, except, in some places, beer, ale, porter, and milk. Note 1.- In some States 314 gallons, and others from 28 to 32 gal. lons, make 1 barrel. 42 gallons make 1 tierce, and 2 tierces 1 puncheon. NOTE 2.— The term hogshead is often applied to any large cask that may contain from 50 to 120 gallons, or more. Note 3. — The Standard Unit of Liquid Measure adopted by the government of the United States is the Winchester Wine Gallon, which contains 231 cubic inches. It has the name Winchester, from its standard having been formerly kept at Winchester, England. The Imperial Gallon, now adopted in Great Britain, contains 277-2074 cubic inches ; so that 6 Winchester gallons make about 5 Imperial gallons. 95. For what is wine or liquid measure used ?

Repeat the table. 192 cubic Note 1.- The Standard Unit of Dry Measure adopted by the United States government is the Winchester bushel, which is in form a cylinder, 18} inches in diameter, and 8 inches deep, containing, 2150140 cubic inches. The Standurd Imperial Bushel of Great Britain contains 221811 inches, so that 32 Imperial bushels equal about 33 Winchester bushels. The gallon in Dry Measure contains 2685 cubic inches.
