Exercises in Parsing. To flatter a wan, raises his vanity. To respect yourself, is to respect mankind. He knowing the fact, his pride was moved. If he is loved, let him return it in good faith. Should he seturn it, the object will be grateful. He has been at home these two hours, and was seen by the boy.

I tell you my friend, go on. To be candid, I bid.you go on. Having heard the cause, the court adjourned.'

Rules for Reading Verge. Rule 1. That sentence, or member of a sentence, which, in prose, requires the rising or falling inflections, adopts the same in verse. Thus:

When all nature 's' hush'd to sleep',
Nor love', nor guilt', their vigils keep',
Softly leave your cavern'd den',

And wander o'er the works of men'. Rule 2. A pause, proportioned, in duration, to the intimate or remote connexion that subsists between the closing and commencing words in the lines of poetry, should be carefully observed. Thus:


discern another's mind'?
Why is 't you envy'? Envy's blind".
Tell envy', when she would annoy',

That thousands want what you enjoy! Obs. 1. When the lines break so as to part the article and its ngun, the adjective and its noun, or the preposition and its 20ung


is omitted. Thus:
O’er their heads', a crystal fountain',
Whereon a sapphire throne', inlaid with pure
Amber', and colours of the show'ry bow!

When', on a sudden', open fly',
With impetuous recoil, and jarring sound',
The infernal doors', and', on their hinges', grate

Harsh thunder'.
Des. 2. No pause can be made after the adjective pure, and

the verb grale.



RULE 3. Most kinds of verse, admit a short pause in ornear the middle of the line. The falling inflection may be applied to the middle pause of the penultimate line with great effect. Thus:

A little rule', a little sway',
A sunbeam', in a winter's day',
Is all the proud and mighty have',
Between the cradle', and the grave'.


Double Proportion. NATE. In Double Proportion, those questions may be stated and solved by one operation, which require two or more slutings and operations in single proportion.

In this rule, there are always five terms given in the question to find a sixtsi

The three first given terms are of the nature of supposition, and the other tuo, of a demand.

RULE. 1. Put that term which is of the same name and kind with the answer, in the third place.

2. Take one term from the supposition, and one from the démand, both of the same name and kind, and put them in the Ist and 2d places, as in single proportion.

3. Take the two remaining terms, and place each under its like in the 1st and 2d places.

4. Multiply the terms in the 2d place, and their product by the term in the 3d place for a dividend.

5. Multiply the terms in the 1st place for a divisor, and the quotient will be the sixth term, or answer. Thus:

(1) If 6 men eat 10lbs of bread in 8 days, how much vili' 12 men eat in 24 days?

1 2 3 6:12

: : 10' Then, 12X24=288X10=2880, divid'd: 8:24 6X8=48, divisor; and 2880:-48=60lbs., Ans.

ELLIPSIS.--LESSON 4. NOTE. Ellipsis implies the ómission of a word or words, by which unnecessary and disagreable repetitions are avoided, while the sense is rendered sufficiently obvious. Thus: - Instead of saying Joseph is a learned man, and Joseph is a wise man, and Joseph is a happy man, the repetition of the same terms becomes tedious and offensive;—this may be remedied by employing Ellipsis. Thus: Joseph is a learned, wise and happy man. Almost all compound sentences are more or less elliptical; but in parsing, the words must be supplied. Whenever the omission of words tends to weaken the strength of a sentence, or obscure its meaning, they should be supplied.

Thus;---Joseph will pardon who oppose his wishes—the ortission of the pronoun, him, after the verb, pardon, obscures the sense; A beautiful field and trees, is also improper; fór

a-way ă-wa' a-wry ă-ri'

conjunctions connect nouns in the same limitations; hence, by supplying the ellipsis, the sentence would read thus. 4 beautiful field, and a beautiful trees.

To a knot of Daffodils.
1. Fair Daffodils', we weep to see

You haste away so soon';-
As yet', the early-rising sun',

Has not attained his noon'.
2. Stay, stay, untill the passing day',

Has run but to the evening song';
And'; having pray'd together', we
Will go with you along

3. We have short time to stay as you';

We have as short a spring';
As quick a growth to meet decay

As you'; or any other thing!
4. We die as your hues die', and dry away

Like summer's mid-day rain';


Or like the pearly drops of dew';

Ne'er to return again'.

DOUBLE PROPORTION.-LESSON 7. (2) If 4 men mow 48 acres in 12 days, how much can 8 men mow in 16

Ans. 128 acres. (3) If 18 horses eat 10 bushels of oats in 20 days, how many bushels will 60 horses eat in 36 days? Ans. 60bu.

(4) $4 pays 8 men for 3 days' work, how long must 20 men work for $40?

Ans. 12 days. (5) B. carries 200lbs. 40 miles for 40 cents; how far will he carry 20,200lbs. for $60.60?

Ans. 60 miles. Note. There is a method of contracting the operation: Thus;

(6) If 6 men eat 10lbs of bread in 8 days, what will serve 12 men for 24 days? 6 : 12

: : 10lbs.

12;6=2 8:24


and 3X2=6X10=60lbs., Ans. Nota. Here, I divide the two second terms by the two first respectively, and niultiply the product of the quotient by the third term, which produces the same answer as before.

EXERCISES IN PÄRSING.--LESSON 8. Note. In the following exercises, the same word becomes, in different relations, a different part of speech. The sun was pleasant, and the day was calm.

After a storm, comes a calm. He subdued passion and calmed it. A little, with content, is better than much with strife. Better is ? little, with peace, than a great deal with war. and dissolute think little of approaching misery. A little thought might set him right. He is out of danger, yet he still fears. Fair


far. The fair was held at Boston.
