This year Easter will fall on tho 1st of
April nine days earlier than last year,
The earliest possible day for Easter Is the
22d of March, and It fell on that day in
1818 for the first time In about 200 years.
One object in arranging the calendar moon
was that Easter might never fall on tho
same day as the Jewish Passover. Tbey
did occur, however, In 1805 on the 14th
day ot April, In 1825 on the Sd day of April
and will do so again In 1924 oo tbc 1st of
April, in 1927 on tho 17th of April and in
1981 on the 18th of April. Last year Easter
and tho Passover were separated by but a
single night. Tho Jewish festival usually
occurs in Passion Week, in Lent, and
never before the 29th of March or after the
35th of April. On the other hand, the
Christian festival is never before tbe 22d of
March or after the 25th of April. In 1013
Easter will fall on the 22d of March as It
did in 1845 and 1860. The latest Easter oc
cuired in 1886, tbe 25th ot. April, and it
will not fall on that date again until 1943.
Tbe year of 1889, which comprises the
latter part of 118th, and the beginning ot
the 114th year of American Independance,
corresponds to the year 6602 ol tho Julian
period; to 7308 99 of the Byzantine era, the
year 7398 commencing beptember 1 1 to
5649-50 of the Jewish era, the year 6650
commencing September 25 at sunset ; to
2043 since tho foundation of Rome, accord
ing to Varro ; to 3036 since the beginning
of tbe era of Nabonassar, which has been
assigned to Wednesday, February 26 of tho
3967th year of Julian period, and tn the
notation of astronomers to the 74Cth year
before tbe birth of Christ ; to the 2665 ot
tbe Olympiads ; to 2301 ot the Grecian era
or era of the Belucidui; to 1005 of tho era
ot Diocletian ; to 2549 of the Japanese era,
and tho 23d year ot the period entitled
"Meijl." The year 1W7 of the Moham.
mcda. era, or tho Hegira, begins on August
28, 1889, and the first day of January, 1889,
