March 1. Here is our first spring morning accord- ing to the almanac. It is remarkable that the spring of the almanac and of nature should correspond so closely. The morning of the 26th was good winter, but there came a plentiful rain in the afternoon, and yesterday and today are quite springlike. This morning the air is still, and, though clear enough, a yellowish light is widely diffused throughout the east.
