(For intermediate dates interpolate.

The azimuths in the above table, applied properly to the magnetic bearing of Polaris at the time of its greatest elongation east or west, will give the true variation of the magnetic needle from a true north direction, and will be of great use to all surveyors and engineers. When the elongation is east the azimuth will be east, and vice versa, At the present time the line of "No Variation of the needle runs southeas.erly from near Toledo. Ghio, to a point on the Atlantic Coast about fifty miles southwest of Cape Fear, N. C. East of that line the north end of the needle points west of a true north, and west of that line east of the true north. The country may

therefore be divided into eastern and western magnetic regions. in the "Eastern Region' the bearing of Polaris at its western elongation, if eastward, added to the azimuth, gives the desired variation west, but if westward, the bearing taken from the azimuth gives the variation west. The bearing of Priaris at its easlera elongarion will be eastward, and the azimuth subtracted therefrom gives the variation west. In the "Western Region' the bearing of Polaris at its eastern elongation, if westward, added to the azimuth, gives the variation east; but if eastward, the bearing taken from the azimuth gives the variation east. The bearing of Polaris at its western elongation will be westward, and diminished by the azimuth gives the variation east. The azimuths in the table, given for two degree zones, are practically sufficient for all the United States except Alaska. For intermediate latitudes, and dates, the azimuths may be found by proportion sufficiently correct, or exactly by the formula, log sine azimuth equai log sine Polar distance of Polaris, minus log cosine latitude. The surveyor or engineer is on the line of "No Variations when the bearing of Polaris at greatest elongation is the same as the azimuth

STANDARD TIME. For the convenience of the railroads and business in general a standard of time was established by mutual agreement in 1883, and it is by this method of calculation that trains are now run and local time is regulated. In accordance with this system the United States, extending from 650 to 125° west longitude, is divided into four time sections, each of 15° of longitude, exactly equivalent to one hour (742 or 30m. on each side of a meridian), commencing with the 75th meridian. The first or eastern section includes all territory between the Atlantic Coast and an irregular line drawn from Buffalo to Charleston, S. C.. the latter city being its southernmost point. The Second or central section includes all the territory between this eastern fine and another irregular line extending from Bismarck, N. D., to the mouth of the Rio Grande. The third or moun ain section includes all the territory between the last named line and nearly the western borders of Idaho. Utah and Arizona. The fourth or Pacific section includes all the territory of the United States between the boundary o the mountain section and the Pacific Coast. inside of each of these sections Standard time is uniform, and the time of each section differs from that next to it by exactly one hour.

The following is the table of times based upon the meridian used by the United States and Canada:

6 EXPLANATORY TABLE OF STANDARD TIME-ELONGATION OF POLARIS. EXPLANATION AS TO TIME USED IN TABLET OF THIS ALMANAC.

In the astronomical tables only the seasons, moon's phases and high water are
given in Standard time. All the others are given in mean or local time. 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 dara to the single point or place for which they were
computed, while in mean time it is practically correct for places as widely separated
as the width of the continent, and persons having the mean time may easily ascertain
the correct Standard time of any event by making use of the following table:
To obtain Standard time, add or subtract the figures given to the mean or local time.

23 TO FIND THE TIME OF GREATEST ELONGATION OF POLARIS.

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

may be taken with the tran Lati- Constant Lati- Constant Lati-Constant
