The racks and shelves now provided are so arranged that none are higher than can be reached conveniently by the storeman from the floor level. There is thus no need for a ladder in these modern stores.

The tiers of shelves are separated by aisles, at the end of each of which is a window. Thus ample light reaches every part of the storage area. Sufficient passage room is left to allow of trollies being run from any part of the building to the delivery door. Everything on hand is visible and immediately available. Each compartment bears a description of contents, and cards, in slots, are provided on which to record each receipt and issue.

The commodities are kept so arranged in their respective compartments that they may be counted rapidly by the unit, dozen, score or ndred. Neat metal trays are provided for nall items of the ring, nut or rivet variety—little things likely to scatter about if not carefully cribbed, cabined, and confined.
