READING.LESSON 2. Application of the Inflections of the®voice to the series. Note. The series implies that succession of similar portions, or single particulars, which, whether simple or compound, double or treble, or whatever other variety they may assume, frequently occur in almost all kinds of written language. The series may be divided into three kinds : The simple series; the compound series; and the series of serieses.
TUE SIMPLE SERIES, consists of two or more single particulars - follow
ing each other in succession:--and they may commence the sentence, or close it.
RULE 1. When two single particulars occur, in commencing a sentence, the first takes the falling inflection, and the second the rising. Thus:-
The teacher and his pupils' apply the inflections'. Precept' and example', have their proper influence'. Exercise and temperance', improve the constitution'. Obs. When two single particulars occur in closing a sentence, the first tokes the RISING inflection, and the second, the FALLING. Thus:
The inflections are properly applied by the teacher and his pupils'.
Washington devoted his life to the cause of virtue and his country!
An indifferent constitution may be improved by exercise" and temperance
Rule 2. When three single words form the commencing series, then the first and and second adopt the falling, and the third the rising inflection. Thus:-
Washington's head', heart', and hands', were employed for the glory of his country!
The Persians', Greeks', and Romans', were idolatrous nations!
Her wit', beauty, and fortune', raised her above the level of her acquaintance'.
Obs. When three single words form the closing series, the first and third take the FALLING, and the second the RISING inflection. Thus:-
The essence of true piety', consists in humility', love', and devotion'.
He who resigns the world', has no temptation to hatred', malice', or revenge'.
The whole life of the Christian', should be marked with love', sobriety', and equity
Interest.--Lesson 3. Interest is an allowance made by the borrower to the lender for the use of money or other property.
It has reference to four particulars; to wit:--The principal, time, rate pr. ct.
. pr. ann. and amount.
The principal is the sum for which interest is computed. The time, is the period for which it is computed. The rate
pr. 'ct. pr. ann. is the sum allowed for the use of $100, or £100 for one year. And the amount, is the principal and interest added.
Interest is of two kinds, simple and compound.
Simple Interest is that which accrues on the principal only for a given time.
CASE 1. When the given time is one year.
Multiply the Principal by the rate per cent. and divide the Product by 100, the Quotient will be the answer. Thus: (1) What is the Interest of $500 for 1 year, per
cent? $500X7=3500-100=$35;- Answer. (2) What is the Interest of $225 for 1 year at 7 per cent?
Ans. $31.44 (4) What is the Interest of $842 for 1 year, at 5 per
cent? Ans. $42.10.
SyntacLesson 4. Note. Syntax refers to the arrangement and agreement of the words employed in the construction of a sentence.
In grammatical construction, sentences are of two kinds; to wit:-Simple and Compound.
A simple sentence has one subject and one finite verb; as, Mary reads.
A compound sentence is composed of two or more simple sentences, joined by one or more connective words; as, Mary reads and Jane writes.
The principal parts of a simple sentence, are the subject and the verb:-all words combined with these may be called modifying words; they are in fact mere adjuncts. Thus:--Mary walks very frequently. Jane reads in a depressed tone. He rides over a rough road twice a week. The boys love to play at foot-ball on the green once a day.
