TO see the new moon for the first time through glass, is unlucky; you may be certain that you will break glass before that moon is out. I have known persons whose attention has been called to a clear new moon hesitate. "Hey I seed her out a' doors afore?" if not, they will go into the open air, and if possible show the moon "a piece of gold," or, at all events, turn their money.
