TWENTY-FOURTH WEEK Lesson 116.-Learn for Monday Morning.

WHAT A MAN OF BUSINESS SHOULD BE. A man of business should be able to fix his attention upon details, and be ready to give every kind of argument a hearing. This will not encumber him, for previous practice and experience will make him ready and expert in the exercise of his intellect ; or, if not, it should be cultivated by every means in his power, and at every opportunity. One man collects materials together, and there they remain a shapeless heap; another man, possessed of method, can arrange what he has collected ; but euch a man as we would here describe would, by the aid of his principles, go further, and build a superstructure with the same materials. He should be courageous, but his courage should be tempered with reason ; and, in addition to a stout heart, his courage should be patient.

Lesson 121.-Learn for Monday Morning.

Think not, when all your scanty stores afford
Is spread at once upon the sparing board ;
Think not, when that the homely robe appears,
While on the roof the howling tempest bears,
What further shall this feeble life sustain,
And what shall clothe these shivering limbs again.
Say, does not life its nourishment exceed ?
And the fair body its investing weed ?
Behold, ! and look away your low despair-
See the light tenants of the barren air;
To them, nor stores nor granaries belong,
Nought but the woodland and the pleasing song:
Yet your kind Heavenly Father bends His eye
On the least wing that fits along the sky.
He hears the gay and the distressful call,
And with unsparing bounty fills them all.
Observe the rising lily's snowy grace ;
Observe the various vegetable race ;
They neither toil nor spin, but careless grow,
Yet see how warm they blush, how bright they glow !
If ceaseless thus the fowls of heaven He feeds,
If o'er the fields such lucid robes He spreads,
Will He not care for you? Ye faithless, say,

Is He unwise ? or are ye less than they ?- Thomson.

MOUNTAINS.—The greater part of Europe is a level plain, called the Great Plain, stretching from the North Sea to the U'-ral Mountains. The mountains are chiefly in the south and north-west.

The chief ranges are the Pyr'-en-ees, the Alps, the Ap-ennines, and the Car-pa'-thi-ans; the Bal'-kans, the Cau'. ca-sus, in the south, and the Scan-di-na'-vian Mountains in the north.

The Alps are the highest mountains in Europe ; they separate Italy from France, Switzerland, and Austria.

The tops of the high peaks are covered with snow. Mont Blanc (blong), 15,700 feet, or about three miles high, is the highest summit. A railway tunnel, 74 miles long, called the Cenis tunnel, has been made through the Alps between France and Italy, near Mont Cen'-is (sen'-ees).


The Pyr-en-ees form the boundary between France and Spain.
The Ap'-en-nines are joined to the Alps, and run through Italy.

Mt. Ve-su'-vi-us, 4,000 feet high, is a celebrated volcano, on the
Bay of Naples, not far from the Apennines.
The other volcanoes of Europe are Mount Et’-na, in Sicily, 11,000
feet high ; and Mount Hec-la, in Iceland, 5,000 feet high.
The Car-pa'-thi-ans are in the east of Aus'-tri-a; they contain

valuable gold, silver, and copper mines.
The Balkans run across Turkey.
The Cau'-ca-sus Mountains run between the Black Sea and the

Caspian Sea. They partly divide Europe from Asia.

The Scan-di-na'-vian Mountains are chiefly in Norway. Lesson 123.-Wednesday Morning. Work these Sums. Find the value of (1) £5, £18, £lf, Yocr., of 14s. 6d., 1 G. (2) cwt., tml,, of 1 of 51b, 18dwt. (3) Acr., 1 of 1 of 3 cwt. 2qrs. 13lbs, of 24 of 27ac. 3ro. 25po.

GEORGE II.-Continued.
Charles Edward, the young Pretender, son of James Stuart, the

old Pretender, attempted to regain the throne, 1745 He landed in Inverness in July, with only seven followers, but

was soon joined by several Highland chiefs. He marched southward, and was gladly received by both Perth and Edinburgh, Sir John Cope, who was marching towards Edinburgh, was met

by the Pretender at Preston Pans, and suffered a defeat. After six weeks spent in mustering troops, Charles marched into

England, but few Jacobites joined him. He took Carlisle, and advanced as far south as Derby, but by the advice of the

Highland chiefs he retired into Scotland. 1746 The Duke of Cumberland followed, and in April, 1746, a battle

was fought at Culloden, near Inverness, when the Pretender

was totally routed. For several months Charles wandered about, and after many

narrow escapes got back to France, though a reward of £30,000

was set on his head
This was the last attempt of the Stuarts to gain the throne.
