SEC. 3. [Brick work.]-1'o ascertain the amount of brick work done in a building, it shall be an established rule that a wall being four (4) inches or one (1) half a brick wide, or thick, shall be calculated at seven (7) bricks to the superficial foot; a nine (9) inch, or one (1) brick wide wall, at fourteen (14) bricks to the superficial foot; a thirteen 13) inch wall, or one [and] (11) one-half bricks wide, at twenty one (21) bricks to the superficial foot; an eighteen (18) inch wall, or two 2) bricks wide, at twenty-eight (28) to the superficial foot, and then raising seven (7) bricks for every additional brick in width. To find the amount of brick work done, measure the length of the wall by he height of same, which will give the superficial area in feet, then nultiply this amount by either seven (7), fourteen (14), or any other number of bricks respectively, as the thickness of the wall is one-half (+), one (1), one (1) and one-half (1), or other number of bricks wide, and the result will give the exact number of brick work done, includ. ing the mortar. Thus for an illustration of the rule and an example: A wall measures thirty feet (30) in length, twenty one (21) in height, and one (1) brick wide, how much brick work done ? 30x12[21]x14= 8,820 bricks, measure outside from corner to corner, thus allowing double measurement for each corner in the building. Gable and other triangular shaped walls, measure the length, multiply by one-half of the height, and by the respective number of bricks for the thickness. Projections on walls, chimney breasts, flues, pilasters, etc., are measured by adding one (1) return to the length, multiplied by the height and respective thickness; no deduction shall be made for inside vacancy. Chimney tops shall be measured by taking the face and one (1) return for the length, multiplied by the height above wall, and by the number of bricks. Example: A chimney top's face measure, four (4) feet, is eighteen inches, or two (2) bricks wide, and six feet high, how many bricks? Answer: 4 6x6x2:=756 [54x6x28=924] bricks; no deduction shall be made for inside flues. All chimney stacks, whether square, circular or octagon shafts, measure solid cubic contents, and allow twenty-one (21) bricks to the cubic foot. All openings in walls shall be deducted, less the reveals or jambs outside of frame. When openings have arches over same, deduct for the height of opening the distance from the sill to the spring of the arch. Openings built without springs, the jambs on each side shall be deducted from the width of the opening. For example, if an opening in a thirteen (13) inch wall measures four (4) feet in width, the deductions will be only one (1) foot, ten (10) inches, multiplied by the height and respective thickness; or, in this case, by twenty-one (21) brick. No deductions are to be made for plates, bond-timbers, joists, sills, caps, lintels, etc, but two (2) inches in height are to be allowed for bedding plates, where brick work is over them. To measure cornices, take the length a and height by the greatest projections, which, in no case, shall be le than (4) inches wide, all fractions to be put in the next higher clas caps are to be measured the same as cornices. In measuring partiti walls take the dimensions clear of the front and rear walls. For fire wa and gables, add two (2) courses of bricks, or five (5) inches for cutting t brick and waste thereon. Pilasters are measured over face and one si for length, multiplied by height and thicknese. No deductions are to 1 made for circular or semi-circular openings for arches, vaults, sewer etc.; take outside circumference by the length and thickness. F arches in solid walls, add to measurement the superficial area, mult plied by the thickness of the wail. Projecting arches are to be mea ured by the length and height from the spring to the top of centre the arch by the thickness of the projection, which in no case shall b less than four (4) inches, or one-half (1) brick wide. Vault arches ar to be measured one and one-half (14) times the outside girth. Oven coppers, boilers, etc., are to be measured as solid work, deducting only the ash holes, but the fire bricks, tiles, etc., are not deducted out th brick work. In measuring isolated piers, take the face and one returi for the width and multiply by the height and thickness or number o bricks thick. Isolated walls are to be measured by adding to the face two (2) returns or thickness of wall for the length, multiplied by the height and thickness; on corners more or less than a right angle, allow additional the thickness of the wall for each, and corner in the length. In measuring stock or pressed brick fronts take the area of such facing and returns at each corner and deduct openings; all openings where frames occur to be deducted, less the reveals, when the openings are without frames and have the jambs faced through the full thickness of the wall, both jambs to be measured, and four (4) inches on the inside to be allowed. A superficial foot of facing to front will take seven (7) bricks. Brick paving is to be measured by the superficial yard, equal to nine (9) square feet, which will require forty (40) bricks to the yard when laid flat. In brick paving, paving on edge or border, allow double the aforesaid measurement, and in brick on end allow four (4) times the aforesaid measurement. Point: ing fronts is to be measured by the superficial foot.

Sec. 4. [Stone cutting work.]-For plain rubbed face to ashlar, platform, posts, watertables, cornices, take the superficial measurement upon all parts of the work where exposed. For moulded work to cor nices, archives, imposts, etc., girth the whole face of the mouldings, beginning with the tape at the extreme edge of the moulding and

emerging it into the hollows and quirks across the whole face. The dimensions, multiplied by the length, will give the superficial feet. Take all flat circular work at one (1) and one-half (1) times the straight, and when of a quick sweep, fifteen (15) inches radius or under, twice the straight. Panel work measures double. Measure the different kinds of work for labor, as follows, only by the lineal foot; Rough brush hammered work, one (1) foot and under; fine hammered work, one (1) foot and under; checks under ten (10) inches, checks over two (2) inches, measure double. Rebates, steps and moulded nosings, window sills with nosings, window caps, moulded window caps, moulded string course, pier caps, plain pilaster caps, mouled pilaster caps, moulded cornice, moulded fence coping. Returns for the whole of the above to be measured double. If over one (1) foot high, measure superficial, ditto tooled. The following different kinds of work for labor only shall be measured by the superficial foot: Brush hammered door sills, brush hammered piers of two (2), three (3) or four (4) sides, lintels, pier blocks, base blocks, plinths, measuring four (4) feet and less, measured double, bevelled ashlar. All returns for above measured one and one-half (11) times. Ring stones, saddle-back coping, fence posts of various kinds, coarse fire wall coping, chimney tops, double measurement. Platforms measured same as steps, one (1) foot from front, the balance per superficial foot; if the bottom bed is worked, to be charged the same as ashlar. Bed over twelve (12) inches wide to be paid for as rough brush hammered work, with the exception of plinth blocks. Rusticated quoins under twelve (12) inches in bed, superficial measurement; over twelve (12) inches thick, cubic measurement. Rusticated ashlar, superficial measurement.

SEC. 5. [Plastering work.]-Plain plastering is to be measured by the superficial yard, that is, three (3) feet multiplied by three (3) feet equal nine superficial feet. 'In measuring plastering take the girth of the walls in a room for the length and multiply by the height from floor to ceiling, and from this product deduct one-half () of the amount of the openings, such as doors, windows, etc. All cornices and mouldings, and all work where running mould is used, are to be measured from the nose of the moulding to the wall, and a moulding is desig. nated as being so many inches, according to the girth; the length is taken on the wall line, and one (1) lineal is allowed to each miter. Measure of plain or moulded cornices under twelve (12) inches girth by the running foot, and all above that girth by the superficial foot. The plain parts of ornamented cornices shall be first taken as plain, and the several enrichments therein taken per running foot at their separate values, which, added to the price of the plain moulding, will give the correct value per foot run of the whole cornice; complete mouldings encircling centers to be measured as mouldings. All cir. cular work double measurement. All inclined or raking ceilings under an angle of twenty-two (22) degrees with the horizon, to be measured as level; over twenty-two (22) degrees, one and one-half (11). measurement. Twenty-two degrees is equal to one-fifth (1-5) of the span. Closets and presses under four (4) feet by eight (8) feet, double measurement. Privits shall be measured double ; all external angle beads and quirks, per running foot ; furring, regulating or stripping on all lath, per square. Whitening and coloring are to be measured in the same manner as plastering. Niches and arches are valued at so much each. Cast and enriched centers to ceilings, fixed and put on complete, so much each, according to diameter. All circular enrichments to be twice the price of straights of the same description. When enrichments are moulded from original designs, the expense of the moulding to be paid for extra. All work done on stone walls with cement or mastic, measured same as plastering, but no openings deducted.

Sec. 6. [Roofing work.]-Slater's work is to be measured by the square of one hundred (100) superficial feet of covering, to this added six (6) inches run for the trouble of cutting the slates on each side of the hips, eaves, valleys, or whenever cut to irregular lines. No deduc. tions are made for dormer windows, skylights, chimneys, etc., except they are over fifty (50) feet superficial feet contents, then one-half (1). is deducted. Composition and tin roofing is measured in the same manner as the slate roofs, with the exception that nothing is added for hips, eaves, valleys, etc.

SEC. 7. All acts and parts of acts in conflict with this are hereby repealed.

SECTION 1. It shall be unlawful for any mine ower, lessee or operator of coal mines in this State, employing miners at bushel or ton rates, or other quantity, to pass the output of coal mined by said miners over any screen or other device which shall take any part from the value thereof, before the same shall have been weighed and duly credited to the employe sending the same to the surface, and accounted for at the legal rate of weights as fixed by the laws of Missouri.

SEC. 2.
