Brevity of Time. 1. Time is a tide that never runs back'; it knows no pause'; and no man has seen its end'. Hence, it is brief, only as it relates to the life of man'. The several stages into which that life is lotted', pass off in very quick succession'; and the whole date of his continuing', is brief indeed'.

2. The moment that is passed', is gone for ever', aone can beg it back'; none can charm it back'.

The arrow is flown';—the moment is gone';
And three score and ten', passes by like the dawn';
On wings of the wind', it mounts to the sky',

And reports to its author', how we pass it by': 3. Now', as the past is gone and can be retaken by none', and as no one has a title to the future', the most that can be claimed, is the present'. Let this little point, then, be used with care', and promptly and wisely devoted to the duties of life', and the things that pertain to the hour of death'.

The eighth part of speech. The eighth part of speech is the Conjunction. This class of words is used to join words, and sentences, and members of sentences. They are generally small words and are styled particles. And, but, as, so, yet, are among the most common.

Thus: James and John are good boys. Jane and Mary read well, but they write too fast. He whistles as he goes, yet he is sad. As the tree falls so it lies.

038. You will know the conjunction because it connects words, or sentences, or parts of sentences, and is called a conneclive particle.

ARITHMETIC.-LESSON 7. The operations of subtraction may be performed in a very compendious way by a rule called

Division shows a method of finding how many times one number is found in another, and what remains.

In this case two terms are given to find a third.
The number given to be divided is called the Dividend.

The number by which the division is made is called the Divisor.

And the third term or answer is called the Quotient.

What is left when the work is done, is a fractional part of the dividend, and is called the Remainder; this will always be less than the divisor.

When the divisor is less than 13, it is called short division, for then it is done by one operation, and the quotient stands in a line under the dividend.

Rule 1. Write the divisor on the left of the dividend, and part them by a small curved line; then draw a line under the dividend.

2. Find by inspection how often the divisor is contained in the first left hand figure or figures, and place the result under the right hand figure of those that were taken into the inspection, for the first left hand figure in the quotient.
