ring which they are immersed in clean water', which softens the rags into a mash or pulp'. Mary. But', Ma', who does this work through its several stages'? Ma. It is done mostly by women and children'; but for some of the heavier parts of the several operations', men are employed, The fine pulo', snow white', is next put into a copper vat of warm water', from which it is dipped by an iron sieve or mould'. Through this sieve, the thin and finer parts of the pulp passes back into the vat', leaving just enough behind to make a sheet of paper'. Jane. Then the moulds give the form and texture to paper', and the kind of rags', its quality! Ma. Just so'. The pulp in the moulds', is then turned out upon a cloth of thick felt'; then another sheet', and another cloth', until the pile is complete! It is then pressed', dried', sized', packed in quires' and reams', and ready for market'. The whole process occupies three or four weeks'. - ARITHMETIC, LESSON 47. Reduction. A, has a pipe of wine, which he puts into pint, quart, and two quart bottles, and of each an equal number; how many bottles has he: Thus: 126=1P. & 126 X4=504qts. X2=1008pts. Then, 2qts. X2=4 pints. 1X2=2 do 1pt X1=1 do 7 pints in one of each of the bottles; and 10085-7=144 answer. A, must have 144 bottles of each kind or 432 in all. Now, if you wish to know how often an equal number of several unequal things may be had in a given thing of the same name, work after A's rule. That is, Rule. 1. Bring the several unequal things to the lowest given term among them; then bring the given thing of the same name to the same term. 2. Divide the greates by the lesser term, and the quotient will be the answer. B, has £50, and wants to know how many shillings, ninepences, six-pences, four-pences, and pence, of each an equal number, may be had in it. Ang. 375. Jane. I know something of the operation; for I once went into a tan-yard with Pa, and he showed me how tanning was managed. The hair is first taken off by being steeped in lime water, and the skins are then scraped clean with a knife and pumice stone. After this, it is spread in a vat, and covered with oak or hemlock bark, ground fine; and filled with water. This changes the skin to leather. . Ma. At the present day, the vats are filled with the warm liquor in which the bark has been steeped, which effects the same object in much less time. And after the tanning, the leather passes into the hands of the currier, who, by scouring, greasing, waxing, sizing, and blacking, finishes it for the shoe maker, the saddler, &c. Mary. But, Ma, I think Morocco leather, the most beautiful. Ma. Morocco leather is made of the skins, both of sheep and goats, dressed in a similar way, only it is tanned with the leaves of the Sumach; a shrub of great beauty and useful ness. T. ARITHMETIC.--LESSON 51. Reduction, The method of changing one currency to another. RULE. 2. Bring the given sum to its lowest name, or to any convenient name. 2. Divide that name, by as many of the same as equals one in the currency required. The quotient will be the answer. Thus: Bring £42 - 12, N. 7. currency, to Federal money. £42X20+12=852s. ;-Ss.=$106.50 . Obs. 1. The proof of this operation will furnish a rule by which Federal money, may be changed into any currency. Rule. 1. Multiply the given sum in Federal money by the shillings which equal a dollar at the given place. I 2. Divide the product by 20, and the quotient will be pounds, in the currency required. Thus: Change $106.50, to pounds, &c. N. Y, currency. $106.50 X 8=8525-20= £42 - 12, Ans. . Obs. 2. If there is a remainder, after dividing by 20, then inultiply it by 12, for pence, and any further remainder by 4, for farthings. GRAMMAR.--LESSON 52. Exercises in Parsing. If I come I will help you. If you are good, you are happy. Mary will walk into the field unless it rains. Though a liar speaks the truth, he will hardly bo believed. Moses must stay, if James goes. If they come, they may bring the books. You get no pay, unless you play. If he were to laugh, he would be known at once. Obs. The Conjunctiun is frequently understood; the mood is nevertheless subjunctive. As: Were he to laugh, he would be known at once. Were I to act for you, the game would be immediately up.
