Exercises in Parsing. Rule. 3. Transitive verbs govern the objective case; or the object on which they act. Girls make frocks. In this example, Girls, is a noun common, third person, plural number, feminine gender, and the subject of the verb make; make, is a transitive verb, of the third person, plural number, and agrees with its subject, rule 1st. Frocks, is a noun common, third person, plural number, of no gender, and in the objeclive case after the verb mcke, Rule 3.

Oes. Now, when you perse a verb, tell the kind, and if transitive, tell what it governs, and give the 3d rule,

James' father builds á house. Moses shot the dog that bit Joseph's cow. Mary's sister broke Ann's knife by accident. William's horse draws Ralph's cart along the road. Peter's dog bit Joseph's finger. Joseph's friend shot Peter's dog with John's rifle. Peter said he forgave Joseph's friend.

Note. A whole sentence may be made the object of an action, as in the last example. "He forgave Joseph's friend.”

Exercises in Parsing. Rule 4. Prepositions govern the objective case; as: Mary lives on the hill. In this phrase, on, is a preposition and expresses the relative position or situation between Mary and the place of her abode; it therefore requires the noun, hill, or the name of some other place, or some other word in the same case; hence, the preposition is the governing word. Hill, is a noun, common, third person, singular number, of no gender, and is soverned by the preposition, on, in the objective case. Rule 4.

John rides on Peter's horse along the bank of the river. Thomas plants Joseph's corn in the field by the fence. James struck Peter's hørse on the leg with a horse whip. Mary wound Ann's silks froin a skein into a ball. Joseph knocked Ralph's ball into the river with a club.' James said Ralph might say the truth of him, do justly by him, and live peaceably with him. William shot a bird on a tree by the road with a gun on Monday at noon.

2. Begin at the right hand term, and take the lower from the upper, and place the difference below the line.

3. If the lower term be greater than the upper, take it from that number which makes one in the next left hand figure.

4. Add the remainder to the upper term for the true differa ence, which place below the line, and carry one to the next left hand figure: thus on to the last term. Proof, as in subtraction of whole numbers.

English Money. (1) £146 - 16 9 3 larger sum (2) £124 4. 6 2 58 - 18 6 2 smaller sum

Exercises in Parsing. BUL5. Active participles govern the objective case, as: James saw his sister feeding the fowls.

In this sentence, the noun forols, is in the objective case and is governed by the active participle, feeding; agreeably to Rule 5.

Joseph, digging the field found a purse of money. Joseph saw the men ploughing the farm. Ann, in helping the needy, does her duty. The good man, feeding the poor, honours his master.

NOTE. Participles are of three kinds; to wit, the present participle, the past participle, and the compound participle.

The present participle ends in ing; and when it governs the objective case, it generally comes from a verb iliat can be nade transitive; and therefore is styled an active participle.

The present participle does not always act upon, or govern the objective case; for it frequently does the office olan adjective, as, a loving child; a charming girl; the pelting storm; the roaring ocean, &c.

the past participle ends in d, or ed, t, or n, as lored, learned, taught, blown, &c.

And the compound participle is a connexion of the present and past, as, baving loved, being laught, &c.
