To test the general accuracy of these gauges, frequent actual measurements should be made at the different ports. Actual gauge, however, will be allowed only when applied for prior to delivery of the merchandise, or when the customs officers shall ascertain that the average gauge differs from the actual gauge.

The Department's circular of April 7, 1876, relating to the average gauge
of certain bottles, is hereby revoked,

RATES OF TARE.

ARTICLE 1498, CUSTOMS REGULATIONS, 1908

Almonds, in bales, 21⁄2 per cent; in bags, 2 per cent; in frails, 8 per cent.

Alum, in casks, 10 per cent; in sacks, coarse or ground, 2 pounds per sack.

Figs in skeleton cases: Actual tare of skeleton cases, to which add 13 per cent of weight of inside wooden boxes and figs.

Gunny cloths, actual weight of ropes and covering allowed as tare.

Hay, weight of sticks and wire may be allowed for, and average tare may be calculated.

Hemp: Hamburg, Leghorn, Trieste, 5 pounds to each bale. Hemp, Russia, weight of tow bands.

Iron rods: Bands of iron wire surrounding coiled iron rods may be allowed as tare when they consist of bands ordinarily used for such purpose and are of little or no commercial value. Lemons: Allow 10 ounces per box for paper wrappings; actual tare of outside cases.

Nails, in bags, 2 per cent; in casks, 8 per cent.

Nitrate of soda, 2 per cent.

Ocher, dry, in casks, 8 per cent; in oil, in casks, 12 per cent. Oranges: Allow 10 ounces per box for paper wrappings; actual tare of outside cases.

Peruvian bark, in ceroons, 10 per cent.

Raisins, 27 per cent; actual net weight to be ascertained by emptying and weighing the contents of a sufficient number of boxes of each chop-mark to get a just average.

Whiting, in casks, 10 per cent.
Zinc, sheet, weight of silos.
