Easter Believed To Forecast
An Early Spring
A rather Interesting train of
though Is suggested by tho fact that
Easter will come unusually early this
year (March 27), which, to the
minds of somo people, predicts an
Tho earliest date upon which Eas
ter may fall Is March 22, but In a pe
riod of over 200 years tho condi
tions brought It upon that day but
once, In 1818. The dates have been
calculated from 1780 to 2013, both
Inclusive, being twelve cycles of the
moon. Only four times In that ex
tended period has .Easter come as
early as March 23. It may como ob
late as April 25, as it did. In 1880.
but It will not again strlko that date
until 1943. In 1791 Is occurred upon
April 24, but It will bo tho year ot
grace1 2011 before It Is again as late.
Tho next early Easter will bo 1913,
when It will fall upon March 23.
Whether the prompt waxing of the
moon after the sun has crossed the
vernal equinox had any bearing up'dn
spring weather is problematical, but
there are thoso who beliovo weathor
conditions are more or less dependent
upon lunar phases, and shape their
season's prediction accordingly. And
they may bo equally rellablo with
tho ground hog's shadow and the
breast bono of the goose.
Tho day for EaBter Is tho result of
an astronomical calculation. It falls
upon tho first Sunday following the
ilrst full moon after tho vernal equi
nox. Tho sun crosses tho spring equi
noctial lino on March 31. If that
day should bo a Saturday and the
moon reach tho full that night, the
noxt day, Maich 22, would bo Eas
ter. This concurrence of events, as
stated, had been recorded but once
In a calculated period covering be
yond two hundred years. St. Paul
