kota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, North Dakota, Washing-
ton and Wyoming. In some of these states such marriage is declared
void. Marriage with step relatives of near degree is forbidden in all
states except Florida, Hawaii, Iowa, Kentucky, Minnesota, New York,
Tennessee and Wisconsin. The marriage of an epileptic imbecile or
feeble-minded woman under 45 years of age is prohibited in Connecti-
cut and Minnesota. The marriage of lunatics is void in the District
of Columbia, Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts and Nebraska; also of
persons having sexual diseases in Michigan.


                             EASTER.
  The method by which Easter day is now determined is that of
the first Sunday after the paschal full moon (fourteenth day of the
calendar moon, or the full moon which happens upon or next after
March 21). If the full moon happens on a Sunday, then Easter day is
the first Sunday following.

in the United States. It was erected in 1545, 20 years before the
