from  that  of  the seventy-fifth meridian of longitude west from Green-
wich, and the time so  advanced  shall  continue  to  be  standard  time
throughout this state until the last Sunday in October of the same year,
when  such  standard  time, as so advanced, shall be retarded to that of
the seventy-fifth meridian west from Greenwich; and during  such  period
in  each  year  all  courts  and public officers, and legal and official
proceedings, shall be regulated in accordance therewith.] NO  DEPARTMENT
