There is more fraud practised in connection with berry boxes than with almost any other form of dry measure. To find the capacity of the ordinary berry box with sloping sides by measurement, add together the area of the top and bottom, multiply by the depth and divide by 2. Example: A berry box is 5.1 inches square on top, 4.3 inches square on the bottom and 3 inches in depth; then (5.1X5.1) + (4.3X4.3)X3+2=66.7 cubic inches. Sealing.

Barrels and crates may be sealed by burning with a branding iron (page 126) or marking with a stencil (page 129). BASKETS AND BAGS Inspection. Baskets should be strong and rigid enough so that there is no appreciable deformation when they are filled or lifted. Testing. If a basket is of a regular shape, the capacity may be found by measurement and calculation. If smaller at the bottom than the top, the average area of the bottom, middle and top diameters should be taken and the cubic contents calculated by the method on page 64. If irregular in shape, it may be tested by using a hopper funnel (page 117). Bags are frequently used in retailing charcoal, etc. The capacity of the bag should be clearly marked o...
