SPECIAL RATES

FOR HEAVY SHIPMENTS

To or from Europe and other Foreign countries Will be quoted by this Company on receipt of the infor

mation designated below: 1. Number of pieces. 2. Kind of goods. 3. Total number of cubic feet, exactly or approximately. 4. Total weight, exactly or approximately. 5. Whether by fast or slow steamer. 6. Destination of shipment. 7. Date goods are to be shipped. 8. Amount of Marine Insurance, if wanted. 9. Whether charges are to be prepaid or collect.

CUBIC MEASUREMENT. To ascertain the exact cubical measurement of an article, multiply the length by the width and the product thus obtained by the height, reducing such measurement to inches. EXAMPLE: A box 2 feet 4 inches long, 3 feet 8 inches wide and i foot 7 inches high (reduced to inches) is figured as follows: 24'' or 28" multiplied by 3'5" or 44'' is 1,232 inches, multiplied again by 1'71 or 19" gives 23,408 cubic inches, which when divided by the number of cubic inches in 1 cubic foot, or 1,728, gives 13,944– 1,738 cubic feet. Charge for 14 cubic feet.

In ascertaining cubical measurement of boxes, etc., of irregular shapes, or those having projecting parts, it is the rule of the Steamship Companies to exact measurements of the largest side. When measurements, as made by shippers or agents, do not agree with those made by Steamship Companies, the latter will prevail.

THROUGH NEGOTIABLE BILLS OF LADING for bank. ing purposes are issued by us for HEAVY GOODS to all foreign places, with or without Marine Insurance.

RATES ON BONDS, PRECIOUS STONES, Etc., quoted on application.

DRAYAGE. We attend to all kinds of cartage work. Packages called for and delivered from railroad stations, steamship piers, warehouses, etc., in any quantity and on every class of merchandise at the customary rates charged by truckmen generally.
