Never do any thing for a scholar, but teach him to do it for himself How many cases occur, m the schools of our country, where the boy brings his slate to the teacher, saying he cannot do a certain sum. The teacher takes thc slate and pcncil.-performs the wotk in silcnce.-bnngs the n turns the slate to thc hands IOCS of his pupil, who walks off to bis seat, and to work on the next example perfectly satis- fied with the manner in which ho is passing on. A man who has not done this a hundred times himself, will hardly believe It possible that such a practice can prevail. It is so evidently waste of time, both for master and scholar. 2.

Figures sometimes produce al- most incredible results. Thus, for instance, if a young man upon his twentieth birthday will invest .100 inanystocfc, paying ten per cent, and annually thereafter will invest the same amount and the accumulation of interest, he will be worth, when he is thirty years old, SI 753: when forty years old. S6.-300 when fifty years old, when sixty years old, How simple, then, is thc plan by which a youth ot thc present day can pass his old ift comfort and luxury. He has only to regulate his expenses FO as to save one hundred dollars each year from his income. If the amount saved be larger, then thc sum total will be in- creased in the same proportion. Only think of it, that S500 sived stitHjally and invested in ten per cent, stock will amount in forty years to 8243.500.
