METEOROLOGICAL.The United States Signal Service has first-class stations established at Alpena, Detroit, Escanaba, Grand Haven, Mackinaw City, Marquette and Port Huron, and special display stations for the exhibition of cautionary and weather signals at Bay City, Charlevoix, East Tawas, Elk Rapids, Frankfort, Ludington, Fort Mackinac, Manistee, Menominee, Montague, Muskegon, Northport, Pentwater, Petoskey, St. Ignace, St. Joseph, Sand Beach, South Haven and Traverse City. The station at Detroit also prints Farmers' Bulletins. The cost of these stations, exclusive of the pay of the observers, was, during the fiscal year, 1883-4 but $2,919. The cautionary signal is a black square in the center of a white flag and indicates the approach of a cold wave or northwest storm. The general weather signals are also white flags with various figures, as follows: red circle or sphere, indicating higher temperature; red star, stationary temperature; red moon, lower temperature; blue circle or sphere, general rain or snow; blue star, local rain or snow; blue moon, clear or fair weather. The red colors indicate temperature and the blue colors weather and the signals are combined accordingly. In Canada and some of the States these signals are used on railroad trains displayed on the sides of the baggage cars but have not yet been adopted by the Michigan roads. The calculations in the almanac are made according to Central Standard Time, or that of the ninetieth meridian of longitude west from Greenwich, which is also the legal time of Michigan. The local or solar time of any particular place differs from Central Standard Time according to its longitude, being four minutes earlier or later for each degree of longitude east or west of the ninetieth meridian. A slight difference also results from difference of latitude varying with the seasons. The following tables show the latitude, longitude and most interesting meteorological data pf the seven United States stations and of the State stations at Lansing and Reed City reported by the Board of Health Average Mean Variance AnnualLongitude.
