Grief Over Wife's Condition Unbal
anced Clnrk E. Spencer's Mind
Clark E. Spencer, an old resident
of Mount Pleasant, committed sui
cide Tuesday evening at his home
there by shooting himself In the
head with a 22-callbre revolver. He
lived about an hour and a half.
Mr. Spencer has been tho victim
of melancholia for the past fe'w
weeks. This state of mind was oc
casioned, the neighbors think, by
tho fact that his wife was committed
to an asylum about a month ago,
having been adjudged insane. This
is supposed to have unbalanced his
mind, and caused him to take his
own life in this way. It was about
nine o'clock In the evening that this
occurred. A coroner's jury was em
paneled and decided that death was
due by his own hand. He is sur
vived by four children, two sons, Ar
thur and Robert, at home; two
daughters, Anna, a teacher in the
Hawley schools, and Blanche,' a
teacher in Pitts township.
Mr. Spencer was 69 years, 4
months and 4 days old. The funer
al will bo held from his late home
In Mount Pleasant Friday morning at
11 o'clock. Rev. Hunter will offi
ciate. Interment will take place in
tho Pleasant Mount cemotory.

If It Were Not, It Might Bo Placed
Like Christmas, On a Certain Date
of Each Year.
By Garret P. Scrviss.
(From New York American.)
Tho great Christian festival of
Easter, marking the anniversary of
the resurrection of Christ, falls this
year within one day of its earliest
possible date. It comes on Sunday,
March 23. Last year It fell on Sun
day, April 7. Some years it occurs
several weeks later.
All other anniversaries except
Easter, and tho holy days associated
with It, fall on a flxed day of each
year, and people who are not familiar
with what Is called tho ecclesiastical
calendar are often greatly puzzled to
account for the wandering of this
great festival, whose extreme dates
may bo as much as five weeks apart.
A lato Easter has more flowers and
more sunshine; an early one, like
that of the present year, sometimes
feels the last chill of the departed
Tho primary reason for tho vari
able dato of Eastor is the fact that
it is the only great festival in Chris
tian countries that depends directly
upon tho monthly motion of tho
moon. At the same time, it is affect
ed by tho yearly motion of the sun,
since Its dato Is governed by the ver
nal equinox, which is the point In tho
year when the sun crosses the equa
tor from the southern into the north

A lunar month. Is not the same, as
calendar. month but It represents the
time Ittsm .tmo'f uu'pon tq the next,
whlcfi Is, on the" average, "about 29
days, 12 hours, 44 minutes. A year,
which Is measured by the apparent
motion of the sun, is on the average
305 VL days Now this cannot bo di
vided by the period of a lunar month
without a remainder. In conse
quence, a full moon may occur at any
tlmo In the course of an ordinary
'But tho rule for finding tho dato
of Easter is that it must fall upon
the Sunday immediately following
tho first full moon, which occurs on
or after March 21, which is tho
regular date of the equinox.
Last year tho first full moon fol
lowing the equinox happened on
April 1, which was a Monday. The
next following Sunday, April 7,
was then, according to the rule,
Easter Day. This'year the full moon
of tho equinox, or the paschal moon
as it Is called In the church calendar,
falls on March 22, which is a Sat

System of Determining Easter Mado
100 Years B. O.
Inasmuch as Christmas Day, which
Is celebrated as the anniversary of
the birth of Christ, comes at a fixed
dato every year, December 25, it
would appear much simpler to keep
Easter also as near a 'fixed date as
possible. It could not be absolutely
flxed because of the settled custom
of celebrating it on a Sunday, but,
as the astronomer Clavius pointed
out centuries ago, a reasonable de
gree of regularity could be Introduc
ed by making Easter the first Sunday
after the equinox without regard to
the phase of tho moon. If that rule
wero adopted the date of Easter
would still bo a movable one, but its
wanderings would be kept within a
week of a fixed date.
Tho existing system of determining
the dato of Easter Is based upon a
discovery made more than four hun
dred years before Christ by tho
Greek astronomer Meton. He found
that 235 lunar months are almost
exactly equal In total length to 19
years of 365 days each, There Is
a difference of only about two hours
In tho course of the 19 years. This
period is called the Metonic Cycle,
and its division Into years gives riso
to the "Golden Numbers," which in
dicate the' place of any year In the
cycle. At tho beginning of the cycle,
which, as used In tho ecclesiastical
calendar, Is reckoned from January
1, of tho year 1, B. C, a new moon
happened to fall on January 1.
Every 19 years since then there has
been a new moon at the beginning of
January, but during the intermedi
ate years of tho cycle the first new
moon of tho year occurs at different
dates In January, which are always
tho same for years occupying tho
samo place In the cycle. This place
is called tho Golden Number, and by
its aid, through a somewhat compli
cated system of computation, tho
date of tho paschal moon can be cal
culated any number of years la advance.
