CNCLISH WEIGHTS AND MEASURES.
Tho trrl-A at TTItlrh Ty Wee Rga

Tho jewelers of the middle inn nd
in their tJolicate acales tho lianl, iimno
ed. of tho Moorish carol) tree (cent
tun ailiqiis). and tbeweibtof din-
uioiiila is at.'i rrcknnrtl hr caraU, each
exrat bein; equal to 3 1-6 prains troy.
Tho earliest attempt to regulato Brit-
tab weighta ana measures appears to
have been suvgoated lr this example
says harper's Magazine. la 12C6 it
was declared bv aUtute that "an Eng
lish penar. called a sterlinj. round
and without any clipping, shall weijrb
tiurty-two wheat corns iu the midst ol
the ear, and twenty peuce do make an
ounce, and 112 ounces one pound, and
eight pou ad do wake a gallon of wine,
aud eijrht cations of wine do make a
Loudon bushel, which is an eighth part
of a quarter." We have here the basis
of the Briiiftb system of reckoning as
U survive to-day the grain, penny
weight, ounce, pound, arallon. bushel
and ton. and 240 silver peuce equal to
a pound sterling. The British gallon
is still used for both dry and liquid
meaaure, and the traditional relation
between tha pound and the gallon is
set forth in the old rhyme, which de
clares that , . ,
"A pint's a pound
The world aiound." .
In 1324 the measures of leozth were
denned by a similar statute providing
that "three barleycorns, round and
dry. laid end to end. shall makel inch,
12 Inches a foot, and 3 feet a yard. ,
intm wneat corns, adopted as the
basis of the British system, appear to
hare weighed 22 1-2 grains troy, so
that the uound of 1266 waa eaual to
6.400. grains troy. This . is the old
Saxon pound. The ponnd troy (pound
du roy) is the Bomaa pound, and -was
doubtless in use simultaneously with
the Saxon pound for Hundreds ol years,
but is first mentioned In the statutes in
1414, and was ordained as the standard
weight for gold and silver in 1527. As
24 grains make a pennyweight troy,
the new ponnd contained 5,760 grams.
exceeding tho old weight by 860 grain J,
or tnree-qaarters oi an ounce. '
llio strict pound of lx ouuees was
nsed only in weighing the precious
metals and, with different subdivisions,
for the costly drags and medicines
dealt out by apothecaries. : For heavy
goods (avoirs au poms) a more liberal
measure was given, like the baker t
dozen, and 15 ounces were called a
pound. In the same way 28 pounds
were called a Quarter, and 112 oounds
a hundred weight, allowance being
made lor waste or wrappings. The
increase of the ' penny weight to 24
grains, in 1527 raised the value of the
ounce to 480 grains; and accordingly
the pound of commerce, containing 15
ounces, was raised to 7,200 grains. As
250 grains of wine were reckoned
qual to a cubic inch the gallon, con.
tinning 8 of these pounds, or 67,600
grains, had a capacity of 230.4, or in
even numbers 231 cubic inches. This
is the wine gallon now in use in ths
United States. The ale or beer gallon.
of 282 cubic inches, was originally a
measure containing 8 pounds oi wueat
at 204 grains to the cubic inch.
lite name avoirdupois was trans
ferred at' a very early data from tha
heavy goods, which it indicated, to tho
system by which they were weighed.
it occurs ursi in urv statutes of laso
and 1353. The eat.y pound of 15
ounces of 450 gnrius each 6,750 grains
was raisea by law, as has ucen
shown, to 7.200 grains, making 16 of
the old ounces. In practice, however,
the' pound seems to have fallen below
this standard to about 7,000 Brains.
and this weight was finally declared to
be .a pound avoirdupois, the avoirdu
pois ounce, or sixteenth of the pound,
being thus reduced to 437 1-2 grains.
A Weetern Cheeterfleld.
Here is a very neat little story illus
trative of tho fact that even the wild
woolly West can produce a natural
born Chesterfield upon occasion. At
a party given last winter was a bash
ful cowboy, who had not been in civil
ized society for several years. : He wat
a good-looking fellow, and one of tlx
young ladies present kindly took an
interttst ia hint and tried to make him
feel at ease. He fell desperately in lovt
at once, and the hostess noticing this
encouraged him all she could. Ia
leaving the house the young lady who
had taken a friendly interest in the
cowboy forgot her overshoes, and the
hostess told the young Lochia var from
the plains that he might return them
to the girl if he wished. ; , -
The herder leaped at the chance,
and presented himself in due time at
the young lady's house. She was sur
prised to see him bat greeted him cor
dially. "You forgot your overshoes
last night," awkwardly, handing her
lit package. v
She thanked him and- opened it.
Why, there is only one overshoe
here." she exclaimed.
"Yes, Miss , said the blushing
vacquer, earnestly. "Til bring round
the other one to-morrow, and I only
wish. Miss, that yon were a centipede."

Hardee and a Raw Itocnlt.
i -.Gen. Hardee, the famous tactician
iTia louieaerate commander, was a
strict disciplinarian. One day, while
commanding in the southwest, he rode
out on picket Hue, and, much to his
surprise, found a sentry, a raw recruit.
sitting on a rail fence munching a
piec9 of bacon. The General appear
cd not to see him until he got abreast
of him. and then drew his horse up,
expecting to nuct tno sentry at a
present. He was nothing of the kind;
but sat munching away as unconcern
edlv ns though ne was in his native
mountains. "Do you know who
am?" demanded Gen. Hardee, in his
severest tones. "Stranger, I 'low
don't." "I am Gen. Hardee, and .'
Without stopping to hear the remain
dcr of his sentence the raw recruit slow
ly climbed down from Ihe fence, aud
shambling into the road extended his
hand as he said: "Hor air yer. Gin
eralr I in . mighty glad to see yer
lookm' fo peart." Boston iraveicr.
