As to other kinds of hay, after the .same sliall hiv\e se-ttled in stack from (lO days up to one yeiir's tiiiic, 422 cubic feet shall con.silitule a ton. .'Vs to the hay which has been in stack one year, v ithoul regard to the kind thereof, the numlier of cubic feet lo the ton shall Ix! mutually agreotl upon by the parlies. And in making inaasnrenients of hay in slack, tha fol lowin? is hcreb.v niiule the legal methods of measurement, to-wit' The width and length of the stack shall be measuii'd, and the di.stancu from the grounfl against one side., of the stuck to the ground against the other side ofThe stack directly over and opposite shall be taken in linear feet and inches, and then the width shall be subtraclcd from the measurement over the .stack as above indicated, the ivsiilt divided by 'Uvo and the rc-sult so obtained miiltipliod by the length, which I'i'll give the numlxsr of cubic feat containetl in the stack, and tho tonnage shall thereupon Ixj determined by dividing the total numlxjr of cubic feet allowed uniler tho provisions of this act for a ton.
