TO FIND THE TIME OF GREATEST ELONGATION OF POLARIS.

By adding the numbers in the annexed table for any given latitude to the time of meridian passage of Polaris (the Pole Star), given in another table, the time of its greatest western elongation is found. If the same number be subtracted instead of added, we get the time of greatest eastern elongation. At the time of either

elongation the magnetic

..June 2 Explanatory Note.-The Dominical Letter indicates the day of the year on which the first Sunday occurs; F is the 6th letter, and the 6th of January will be Sunday. The Golden Number is the number in a cycle of 19 years, which shows how many years have passed since New Moon fell on January 1. This and (1) are chiefly used in fixing the ate of Easter. No. (4) indicates the number of years that have elapsed since the current cycle of 28 years began. The first cycle began with the year 10 and is used to find (1.) Roman Indiction is a cycle of 15 years, and is of no utility except to chronologers. Julian Period is a cycle of 7980 years, and is the product of 13), (4) and (5), and when completed (3), (4) and (5) will coincide or begin at the same time. Dionysian Period is a cycle of 532 years, and is called the Great Paschal Cycle, being the product of the Solar and Lunar Cycles. This and (6) are chiefly used in chronology. The Jewish Lunar Cycle is always three less than (3); used only by the Jews in fixing the time of their festivals.

PLANETS BRIGHTEST OR BEST SEEN. MERCURY,. February 5 and October 8, in the West soon after sunset; also March 17, in the east before sunrise, VENUS, August 14, in the west after sunset, and October 26 in the east before sunrise.

MARS and JUPITER not this year. Jupiter at the beginning and end of the year will be nearly at its brightest aspect. SATURN, April 24; URANUS, May 8; NEPTUNE in December.

Mercury will be theoretically brightest at several other times in the year, but then having a low altitude may not be seen. A GRAPHIC EXHIBIT OF THE DURATION OF EVENING AND MORNING STARS, ADAPTED TO THE EQUATOR AND

The vertical line under the sign of each planet is a 6 o'clock line for evening stars, and a midnight line for morning stars. From the diagram it appears that Venus will be seen in the evening until September 18; will be morning star after September 18. Mars will be both morning and evening star until February 5, and then evening star only until October 10, when it becomes morning star. Jupiter is both morning and evening star until March 17, and then evening star only until July 10, then morning star the rest of the year, and also evening star after October 31. Saturn will be morning star only until January 26, and then both morning and evening star until July 23; then evening star only to November 2, when it became morning star, and on the 24th of April it becomes an all-night star, from 6 r. m. to 6 a. m.
