One of the chief aims in drawing up descriptionptions is uniformity and what finally proved the most satisfactory method was to write out a straight-forward descriptionption, using contractions and starting each item on a fresh line, beginning at the head. Both supplementary to, and instead of this, various charts were tried and the one shown on Chart V was used for the present series.
