Shot gleaming thro' a winter's day';

Which dies before the rising light';
Or, like a bub-ble';-like a sigh',
Then be prepared', O child'! to die'

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

DIVISION. 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. 1 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.
