Lime; standard barrels
General Business (GBS) CHAPTER 20, ARTICLE 26
§ 393. Lime; standard barrels. There is hereby established a large and
a small barrel of lime, the large barrel to consist of two hundred and
eighty pounds and the small barrel to consist of one hundred and eighty
pounds, net weight. It shall be unlawful for any person to sell or offer
for sale lime, unless there shall be stencilled or otherwise clearly
marked on one or both heads of the small barrel the figures "180 lbs.
net" and of the large barrel the figures "280 lbs. net," and on either
barrel in addition the name of the manufacturer of the lime and where
manufactured. When lime is sold in containers of less capacity than the
standard small barrel, it shall be sold in fractional parts of said
standard small barrel, and the net weight of lime contained in such
container shall by stencil or otherwise be clearly marked thereon,
together with the name of the manufacturer thereof, and the name of the
brand, if any, under which it is sold. It shall be unlawful to pack,
sell, or offer for sale any barrels or other containers of lime which
are not marked as provided in this act, or to sell, charge for, or
purport to deliver as a large or small barrel or a fractional part of
said small barrel of lime, any less weight of lime than is established
by the provisions of this section. Any person violating any of the
provisions of this section shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.
