ARITHMETIC. Der. Arithmetic is the art of computing by number ; there are two primary rules by which all the operations may be performed; to wit : Addition and Subtraction.'
ADDITION.—LESSON 3. Der. Addittion exhibits a method of putting two or more numbers together, and finding their amount.
RULE 1. Place the given numbers under each other, in such a way that units may stand under units,-tens, under tens, and hundreds, under hundreds,and so on,--and draw a line under the last number.
2. Begin at the units column, and add together, upward, all the figures in it, and place the amount, if less than ten, under that column.
3. If the amount be just ten, place a cypher under that column, and carry one to the next left hand column.
4. If more than ten, or two or more even tens, set down all there is over, and carry one for each even ten, to the next left hand column.
5. Proceed in this way through all the columns, and set down the full amount under the last.
PROOF. Add the columns downward, carrying in the same manner as in adding them upward, and if the two results agree, then the work is right.

The second part of speech. The second part of speech is the article; and it is used to limit the meaning of the noun or name before which it is placed. There are but two articles in the language ;-a or an, and the. They are placed before nouns, and refer to them in limitation.
