EXERCISE.Pick out the NOUNS and VERBS from the Dictation.

DICTATION.—LEARN TO SPELL ALL THE WORDS.—In some parts of In-dia, A-ra-bia, and Af-ri-ca, wa-ter is so scarce that peo-ple are glad to buy it. But it is not more use-ful in these coun-tries than it is here, where it is so plen-ti-ful. It is the scar-ci-ty that gives it such a great value. In In-dia men go about sell-ing water. They car-ry it on their shoul-ders in a large bag made of the skin of a goat or a sheep, and are very care-ful of it. But such water is not nearly so nice as the clear, fresh spark-ling water you get from the spring. Lesson 80.-Friday Morning. Work these Sums.

PARTS OF THE WATER.
A River is a large stream of water flowing over the land.

The THAMES* and SEV'-ERN* are our chief rivers.
Most rivers rise amongst mountains or hills.

At first they are little atreams; other little streams run into them, till at last they begin to be deep and wide. Rivers generally run into the sea, sometimes they run into lakes, and sometimes they lose themselves in the sand, All the rivers of the British Islands find their way to the sea, but some of them run through lakes first.

PARTS OF A RIVER. The Source of a river is where it begins. The Mouth of a river is where it ends. The Banks of a river are the two sides. The Ba-sin of a river is the land drain-ed by the river and all its trib-u-ta-ries.

If a river has a wide mouth it forms an Es’-tu-a-ry. The mouth of the River Thames is an estuary ; the HUM'-BER is also an estuary, and so is the BRIS'-TOL CHAN'-NEL and the SOL'-WAY FIRTH.

When a river has several mouths, like the Nile, in Africa, it forms

what is called a Delta. No English rivers form deltas. Or write 30 spellings out of any book, each word having six or more

letters in it, and learn the first 12.
