Rivers generally run through valleys, and their waters often fill up the hollows and form lakes.

Lesson 57.-Tuesday Morn. Write and Learn. Geography.

PARTS OF THE SEA.

There is three times more water than land on the earth's surface.

An O'-cean is one of the larg-est por-tions of salt water.* The water of the ocean is always salt, and it is therefore not good to drink.

There are five oceans

The At-lan'-tic, the Pa-cif'-ic, the In -di-an, the Arc'-tic,+ and the An-tarc'-tic.t

These oceans are all really one piece of water, and there is nothing to tell where one begins and the other ends.

The British Islands are in the ATLANTIC Ocean.

The INDIAN Ocean is hot and often stormy. The ARCTIC and ANTARCTIC Oceans are very cold, and mostly covered with ice.

The PACIFIC Ocean is larger than all the land in the world.

PSALM IX., verses 1 and 2; OR ELSE LEARN—

SCATTER SEEDS OF KINDNESS-(continued).

Strange, we nev-er praise the

music,

Till the sweet-voiced bird has flown!

Strange, that we should slight the vi-o-lets,

Till the love-ly flow-ers are gone!

Strange, that sum-mer skies and
sun-shine

As when win-ter's snow-y pin-i-ons
Shake the white down in the air.

Then scat-ter seeds of kind-ness
For our reap-ing by and by.
