PRE FACE.

The present book, prepared for the Sixth Standard, completes the Series of Home Lessons.

The Geography lessons include short but full accounts of every European country except England, which has been treated of in Standard V.

The Grammar lessons of the previous standard are continued under Elementary Analysis, together with numerous parsing exercises and test questions.

In the Composition exercises, it has been thought advisable to indicate a few of the heads under which a short essay may be written, or a few of the facts which ought to be mentioned in it as a guide to the young scholar. Previous to the exercise being done at home, it will be necessary for the teacher in many cases either to give an oral lesson, to read himself, or let the pupils read about the subject. It is difficult for any one, and impossible for boys, to write on a given subject without they have a good store of facts and other materials to draw upon. Hence it is necessary that a composition exercise should be carefully prepared.

The Arithmetic goes a little further than the Code specifies, including, as it does, interest, discount, percentages, &c. ; but as many inspectors set questions on these cognate subjects in connection with Rule of Three, it is necessary for a lad to be acquainted with them.

The author regrets that he has only been able to incorporate a few inspectors questions. The upper standards are mostly examined from cards; and many inspectors object to teachers copying the questions ; hence the difficulty of obtaining specimens.

The author's best thanks are due to those teachers who have kindly sent him examination questions. A further favour will be conferred if any errors found either in the Standards or the Answers to the Arithmetical Exercises be notified to the author or the publisher.

FIRST WEEK.
Lesson 1.-Learn for Monday Morning.

HIGHER, HIGHER.
Higher, higher will we climb Onward, onward may we press
Up the mount of glory,

Through the path of duty ;
Thatour namesmaylive through time Virtue is true happiness,
In our country's story;

Excellence, true beauty :
Happy, when her welfare calls, Minds are of celestial birth,
He who conquers, he who falls. Make we then a heaven of earth.
Deeper, deeper let us toil

Closer, closer let us knit In the mines of knowledge :

Hearts and hands together, Nature's wealth and Learning's spoil Where our fireside-comforts sit Win from school and college.

In the wildest weather : Delve we there for richer gems Oh, they wander wide who roam Than the stars of diadems.

For the joys of life from home!

SCOTLAND. BOUNDARIES AND EXTENT.-Scotland forms the northern part of the Island of Great Britain. It is bounded on the north and west by the Atlantic Ocean, on the east by the North Sea, and on the south it is separated from England by the Solway Firth, the Cheviot Hills, and the R. Tweed.

Its greatest length, from Dunnet Head, in Caithness, to the Mull of Galloway, in Wigton, is 278 miles.

Its breadth varies from 40 miles to above 150 miles.

Its area, including the islands, is 30,000 square miles, or rather more than half the size of England and les,

Its population is 3,400,000, or a little more than that of London. Lesson 3.-Wednesday Morning. Work these Sums.

and Figures "Mr. John Heywood, of Manchester, has really produced a novelty in Copy Books. The difficulty that has always been experienced by the teacher is to prevent the pupil from copying his own writing. By the old method, he would probably imitate the writing model in the first and second line, but s on he would become too indolent to lift his eyes to the top of the page, and content himself with reproducing the letters or words immediately preceding those upon which he is engaged in writing: The old 'slips' of our young days partly accomplished this, as they could be removed down the page so as to cover the line just execu ed by the writer himself. But Mr. Heywood's scheme is much more desirable-it meets the difficulty with great success. It is an ingenious process. By means of the fly-leaves, one of which covers the left-hand ; age, and the other the right, the pupil has always his model in a line parallel with that in which he himself has to write, and so finds it much easier to imitate the copper-plate model than simply to follow his own writing.” Bookseller, May, 1869.

We have no doubt niany of our readers are familiar with these copy books. Their aim is to enable schoolmasters to enforce Mulhauser's dictum. We think the idea a good one."-Papers for the Schoolmaster. John Heywood's Copy Slips. 3d. each. 1. Large Hand 4. Small Hand
