EXERCISES.

The mason has taken the rude stone which lay here, and broken it to pie'-ceș. He applies' his rule to see if it is straight. Do not take aught that be-longs' to an'-y of these cru'-el boys; for they will then have reason to fall out with us. They are sure to come to ru'-in ; for they waste and spoil ev'-er-y thing that is given to them. They do not learn their lessons, when in school, and they prevent' ev'-er-y person near them from léarn'-ing. One of them tore a button off my coat, and next day he played the tru’-ant. When he was sick he got gru'-el to drink; and his pa-pa' gave him eight grapes, which he said would do him no harm, as he was much better. When he was al-lowed' to eat mutton he thought it ver'-y nice.

That man holds the plough in the fur'-row, and the hors'-es draw it a-long af'-ter them. There is a raven fly'-ing a-cross the field: he iş look’-ing for food. When the ground is frozen hard, the plough can'-not be em-ployed'; and when it is wet with rain or melt-ed snow, no seed can be sõwn.

Some boys and girlş are taught to spin cotton when they are ver'-y young. It is true they earn a small sum by it to help to sup-ply' them-selves with food, but their health is much hurt by so much con-fine-ment.

:: Cotton is got from a plant which grows and ripens in the fields. We will not in-trude' up-on' those men, who seem to be much engaged'. They are pre-pa'-ring theșe goods to freight a ship with.

TOM LOVEBOOK.

Tom Love'-book was a ver-y clev'-er boy ; he was ver-y young when he went to school, and by his greāt at-ten-tion he soon be-came' the hěad of his class. See, he is now go'-ing home af'-ter mor'-ning school hours, his slate well filled with sumş. He is walk-ing a-way' with-out see'-ing that he is car'-ry-ing his bag turned up'-side down ; his Lat'-in book has
