this one of the richest game sections

In early times in England the people
used what were called clog almanacs,
which remained in use till the begih-
nlncr of the eighteenth century. An old
writer thus describes them :
This almanac is usually a square
piece of wood containing three months
on each of the four edges. The num number
ber number of 'days in them are expressed by
notches, the first day by a notch with
a patulous stroke turned up from It
and every seventh by a large sized
notch. Over against many of the
notches are placed on the left hand
several marks or symbols denoting the
Col den number, or cycle of the moon.
The festivals are marked by symbols
of the several saints tssulng from the
notches."', -" a .
