LANCASTER DAILY INTELLIGENCE, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 22, 1880.
WEDNESDAY EVENING. DEC. 22, 1880.
Iti Oilgln Hint Spread Consulted by u
Millien Courts :tnl Clec-Ks hct by it.
There arc very few persons native te or
resident in Lincastcr county for any con
siderable length of time, who are net ac
quainted with Bacr'.s almanac. Only the
recollections of the "eldest inhabitants"
antedate it, and the memory of this and
the preceding generation .se.ucely inns te
the time when it was net a "household
work." in the widest sense of the lei in.
A publication that has existed for lil'ty-six
years, steadily inci easing the number of its
patrons, and widening the ciicle of its
readers every j ear, maintaining nearly all
of its general features and unable tech tngc
any of them w itheut imp.i'u ing in some de
gree the long established cenlidencc of its
leaders and students, must have a his
tery worth narrating and many features of
its publication have a novel interest and a
deep local significance.
There are almanacs and almanacs ; and
the partiality of the European peasantry
for such publications, which has been
maintained by generations of thcii des
cendants in this ceuutiy, has ever made
the almanac a household necessity here,
and in ouefeim 01 another there are new
ever a bundled regiil.u jeaily publications
of this sort in Amei ic.;, besides the m. un
fold advertising deice- of this kind.
Shrewd adcrtiseiseaily recegiii.ed with
what diligence and confidence the almanac
was conned ami seized upon it as a popu
lar mode of ailvei Using. The immense
gratuitous ciiculatieii of advu Using al
manacs, it would have been supposed, had
- almost entirely supei.sedcd the old fashion
cd calendars, sold generally at the retail
price of ten tents apiece. Weudeiful te
relate, the demand lei Uaei't. almanac has
kept steady pace with the increase of such
publications, ami is te day greater than
ever known before.
The Velhsfrcniid w.u established in
1808; Jehn ll.ier became connected with
it in 1817, and in lei he began the pub
licatien of the l.u-lish almanac, piier te
that a Gciinan alinanae published .it !ei -man
tow n, being eliiclly depended iii.n in
this section. His lust issue of sonic lie
thuusaud copies lesembled in in my fea
tures the almanac of te day. The ealcu
latiens were made by Chailcs V. Kugle
mau, a Heading schoolmaster, and the
astioneiuie.il pages were .set up veiy much
as they are new, l-'or uculy half a cen
tury the type of these pages remained the
same subject only te modification-, and
coircctiens fieni yen te car. A fewe.us
age new type was pieeured and if the de
mand continues te increase the publishers
will have te reseit te stereotyping te sup
ply it. Hut no inateii.il ehaugc could lie
made in the appearance of these pages
without ci eating a suspicion of their veii
ty. It is the astioiieniie.il page that is
of chief interest te our ceuutiy folk, and
it is astonishing what Ien they display in
The picteii.il display of the waxing and
waning, the "lijiht'"' and "daik "' "lull ,'"
"half" and "uuaitei" of the moon by cuts
of the human face is a Gcimati idea e.u
ri:d out en the old Dutch clocks new se
much sought after as "heiiloems'' in fash
ionable residences. The iulhience of the
moon en the customs of domestic life is
very gcnei.illy recognized by the wiile cir
cle of Uaei's almanac icadeis,aud that tips
is te be done or that net done in the "up
going" and "down going,"' in tiic lifdit or
the daik of the moon is ,i , iueeiab!y fixed
as was ever Medes and Puisiau law.
Next te the moon in impeiiaucc are the
little animals indicating the place of the
moon in the signs of the zodiac. On the
last page is the well known cut of the dis dis
emeowelled and naked man, 'uueanded
by the animals with lines indicating each
paiticular put of the holy that
is afl'ectcd by the respective Mgns
The lamb lies peacefully abo'.e his
head ; the "twins" contiel his arms ; th'
"bull" his neck, ve, This analeniy is
deemed of the highest impeiiaucc and the
emission of it fiem one issue of the alma
nac cicatcd such an eutciy that it had te
be restored. 15y these " signs," as indie.i
ted in the fifth column of t lie astionemic.il
page, people plant and cook, bleed and are
bled, buy and scij, :Ulll thousands are
guided by them "u the eidiuuy aifaiisef
life. Depaituie fiem thrni erdisregaid of
them is attended with disastieus results.
Te expect anything te pi egress planted in
the backward sign of the " crab " is a l i
diculeus extreme of credulity. A gentle
man in this city, who never fails te get
his hair cut in the sign of the lien, mis
took the lien for the goat some time age
a quite natural mistake, since about the
only difference in the cuts is that the
goat's tail luinsup and the lien's tad
turns down and the result was tha:he
astonished himself by tiie development of
butting piepensities. Sheitdiaircd people
who de net want te patienizu the
barber get their hair cut in the
sign of the crab.
The "rcmaikablc das' column is one
of interest and study and old leadei.. and
students of JJaer'.s almanac knew the sig
nificance of them all. Houscheuldeis who
de net bake "fastiuclits" en Sluee
Tuesday have snireicd fiem the invasiea
of reaches in the kitchen for a year alter.
The farmer who does net recognize that
the ground hog leeks for his shadow en
Candlcmass is shei t-sightcd indeed. The
position of the ember days" has great
weight in controlling the juice of grain.
If they arc high in the mouth grain will
be high ; if low in the mouth grain will
be low. The ember days next year will
be March 9, June 8, September 21, De
cember 21 ; se that grain will be low in
the spring and rise in the fall and winter
indicaatiens that point te scant harvests.
A column that denotes the hour of high
water at Philadelphia had been for many
years mistaken by an old farmer as the
gau:jc of the ps ice efgrain and iic never dis
covered his mistake by observation of any
false prophecy by the almanac. The time
given ler me using ami setting ei tnc sun
regulates the clocks and watches of the
almanac's leaders and time pieces are
'"set with the sun" which keep aceeid
with Bacr's almanac. In the column of
" miscellaneous particulars "' many tacts
of astronomical importance are given and
it would astonish some of the ' fresh"
members of the "Stir club" te leain hew
far tHcir grandmothers had traveled sky
ward by the study of this dcpaitmcnt.
The table of " moon's phases '" &c., at
the left hand corner of each "right hand
page, giving a prediction of the general
prospect of the weather at each change of
the moon is prepared by the editor of the
almanac in accordance with gcii"iiI laws
of meteorology. The "probable state of
the weather," predicting it for every day
in the year, is only a geed guess biscden
the same scientific principles. The tabic of
dates of the courts of quaitcr sessions and
common picas in the several counties of
the commonwealth is a characteristic fea
ture of Baer's almanacs. Which recalls a
funny incident eccuriiug some yens age,
illustrating at once the dependence placed
upon the almanac and the evil results of
a mistake occurring in it. One month in
the " short almanac " en the List page of
the cover was inadvcilcntly clipped of a
day and the Dauphin county ceuits, by
reason thereof, were all wrongly ordered
ler the year.
The pictures which are new used te illus
trate each month are comparative!.' new.
another scries, of different plates, 'having
been in vogue for the first feity ye us. Af
ter that they were tee much' worn for
further use or for reproduction,
Tie almanac serves the puipesu of a
diary te a very large extent among its
prtreus, and notes of household events
adorn the margin of the days and weeks
column. The birth of children, and the
hatching of chickens, the weather, the
boiling of sjap, butcheiing, planting, and
ether domestic events arc duly rceesded.
iTiin into Willi-im Whiteside, esu., was
went te ask for an almanac with a wiuc
margin te serve these purposes, and these
who thus use the almanac carefully trea
sure their household files of them.
The astronomical calculations, which, as
stated, were originally made by Lglcmau,
arc new computed and furnisl. cd by Law
rcnee J. Ibaeh, a blacksmith astionemer.
at Newmanstown, who was a student et
Eglcman, a fact which commend.' me re
liability of his calculations. The agricul
tural matter of the almanac; exposition
of land law ; cures for man and "past ;
peetiy; anecdotes; the one tlir.-i""
steiy always illustrated by a half-p Vfi
cut, and the page and a half of deimssi is
receipts" are all prepared, compiled, ar
langcd ami edited by Mr. Kcuben A. IJacr,
who ha beer, identified witl the publica
tion of the almauae fiem its infancy.
Piebably no printed matter i mere care
fully read and digested, for hi this great
county and wherever families' have gene
out from it, Bacr's almanac, 7xt te the
Bible, is the most generally lead, the most
frequently tinned te and the mc-it cenfi
dently bclieved-in publication.
The present front cover of the atrial iac,
depicting agricultural scenery, was Jt,gn

exactly as it was .: 1823. The fable e
movable feasts, the cluonelogical cycles
and the church days aiMscriptuieieadin,'S
are icgaided as high authority. The fore

and the grapes that remain, be they many
or few, will net lipcn, and nothing but a

grapes should be "gathered early in the

and heavy rains will occur, but net many
tempests attended with thunder and
lightning ; some will occur in the spiing,
attended with dangerous hail.
Reptile and Vermin. Snakes and toads
will be numerous and in winter mice will
he abundant. There will net be se manv
worms in the grain as in ether yea is, and
in the winter they will be killed by the se
Disease:'. Towards the end of summer,
and in autumn dangerous diseases will
prevail, almost of a pestilential nature, a
fatal fevers, diauheca, dyscntciy, ite ,
eiiginating mostly from cold humors.
These are the charactciisties of a book
that hangs in nearly every Lancaster coun
ty household, ami wherever Lancaster
county has planted families, and far be
yond these limits. Last year's edition '.
amounted te 1S9,009 copies. The ship
ments this year outside of the county up
te date have been 1,01 gross (1-P.t,024
copies.) Last year up te January 2(5,
when the sales stepped, they were 991 gross
(113,1.5(5 copies,) net te speak of some
40,000 copies or au average of one te each
family distributed through Lancaster
county. These arc sold by retail by the
publishers and ether booksellers, by coun

and many men aud women have regular
customers whom they supply with them.
