The bottom a of the holder should be made diskshaped or concave upon its inner side, und in a.-hole formed through lt, m: its lowest point, is seour ed a short taube, B, which I prefer 120 make slightly taper- Ing.

The number of posts, und oonsequently he siz' of the holder, must depend upon the number of measures tl1al; is to be used,
'Il1e' holder is provided with a oover, E, whieh may be shut down or closed when the measures are draining, so as to proteot the 1ixeasures from'flies und. dust.
