How to use the Ready Reference Calendar-To ascertain any day of the week, first look in the table for the year required, and under the months are figures which refer to the corresponding figures at tne head of the columns of days below. For Example: To know on what day of the week July 4, 1918, fell, look in the table of years for 1918, and in a parallel line under July is figure 1, which directs to column 1 in which it will be seen that July 4 fell on Thursday.

In leap years the month of February has 29 days.
