The last seven da>s in December, and the first five days of January, are said to tell w ha: weather we shall have all the year th o u g h If it rains on December a=th, and during the next eleven days, s> s irely will it be a wet year. In whatever quarter tne wind be on St. lhom as’s D ay, December 21st, there it will remain fot the next lunar quarter. A green Christ m»s denotes a white or frosty Easter. An old French suuemtiuon connected with the weather is as follows ;—P ace twelve onious on a shelf where they w ill r.ot be touched ; put a good pinch of salt- on each onion, an*J if it remain** unmeitcd, the month cone pon ling promises to be dry. Should the salt have melted, then tne month denoted by the number wi l be a rainy one. T h e R HOI MEN T Printing f»nd Publishing Co., Ltd., 2, Suudumpton Stieet, Strand, London, W .C. K. A.
