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,t and the An-tarc'-tic.+

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.

Lesson 59.—Thursday Morn. Grammar. Write & Learn.

A VERB is a word which tells something about a NOUN or PRONOUN.*

A VERB makes an AS-SER-TION, telling what a thing does, or what it has done to it. Birds fly.

Here “fly" tells what the birds do. The fire burns.

Here “burns" tells what the fire does. The sheep is killed.

Here “is killed " tells what is done to the sheop. Every sentence must contain a Noun and a Verb, or a Pronoun and a Verb. *

EXERCISE.- Pick out the VERBS.—Cats catch mice. My pony trots. The donkey kicked me. The knife cut my finger. John and James ran a race. Mary tore her dress, and her mother mended the torn place. Run quickly, it rains very fast. Fanny, come and read to me. Light the candle, and go to bed. Look at that animal.

Lesson 62.–Tuesday Morn. Write and Learn. Geography.

A Sea is a small-er portion of salt water than an ocean.

The IRISH SEA and the NORTH SEA are on opposite sides of our own country of England. They both form part of the Atlantic Ocean.

There are many seas in different parts of the world, all of them connected with the oceans.

The largest sea is the ME-DI-TER-RA'-NE-AN SEA, between Europe and Africa.

The water of the seas is sometimes not so salt as that of the ocean, because so many rivers, with fresh water, run into them.

A Gulf* is a piece of water run-ning up a great way into the land.

The GULF OF VEN'-ICE, between Italy, Austria, and Turkey, is a celebrated gulf in Europe. There are no large gulfs in the British Islands. THE WASH is a small gulf. A Bay is a piece of water with a wi-der o-pen-ing than a gulf.f

BRIL'-LING-TON BAY, MOUNT'S BAY, ST. BRIDE'S BAY, and MORE'-CAMBE BAY (mõr'-kăm) are the largest bays in England. There are a great number of small bays round our coast, in many of which ships can shelter from storms.

Or write 30 spellings out of any book, each word having six or more

letters in it, and learn the first 12. * Compare Peninsula in the land with Gulf in water.
