TIME CALCULATIONS AND EXPLANATIONS OF SIGNS AND ABBREVIA.

TIONS. All the calculations except the Moon's Phasen, Tides and seasons are in mean local time. (See table for its conversion into Standard Time.) The Sun's rising and setting is for the upper limb and corrected for refraction. The signs used are as follows: o conjunction or near approach, at which time a line from the North Star through one will also pass through the other; 8. opposition or 180° from the sun, at which time the superior Planets are the brightest; , quadrature or 90° from the Sun: . Sun; . Earth; 8. Mercury: 0. Venus; . Mars; 24, Jupiter; h. Saturn; 8. Uranus; W. Neptune; 3. Moon generally: Ascending Node; U. Descending Node.

Per.--Pershellon, or nearest to Sun; applied to Planets.
Apl.-Apbelion, or furthest from Sun; applied to Planets.
Per.-Perigee, or nearest to Earth; applied to the Moon.

It is obvious that to express the time of rising and setting of the Sun and Moon in standard time would limit the usefulness of such data to the single point or place for which they were computed, while in mean time they are practically correct for places as widely separated as the width of the continent, as already explained, and perBons having the mean time may easily ascertain the correct standard time of any event by making use of the table on this page. EXPLANATION OF THE CALENDAR PAGES.

Time. All the calculations in The Tribune Almanac are based upon mean or clock umo unless otherwise stated. The Sun's rising and setting are for the upper limb, corrected for parallax and refraction. In the case nf the Moon no correction is needed, as in the Sun, for "parallax and refraction";

with her they are of an opposite nature and Just balance each other. The figures given, therefore, are for the Moon's contre on a true horizon, such as the ocean or a large plain affords.
