TIDE TABLE FOR 110 PLACES. To find the time of high-water at any of the places named in the following table, add the time indicated in the first column of figures to the time of "Moon South," or Moon on Meridian,” found in the calendar pages.

If the result is more than 12 hours from noon, the time will be the next day in the morning; and if more than 12 hours from midnight, the time will be in the afternoon of the same day. The tide then found is the first after the Moon's culmination. The second tide occurs 12 hours and 26 minutes later than the first.
