grass. A pin has a head and a point. A dime is a small coin worth ten cents, Men play on the base-viol. A great gun makes a loud noise. Men hoist goods from the hold of a ship with

ropes. The beams of a wooden house are held up by posts

and joists: these are parts of the frame. God makes the ground bring forth fruit for man

and beast. The globe is nearly round like a ball. The dark cloud will shed its rain on the ground and make the grass grow.

blain train When the wind blows-hard the sea roars, and its

waves run high. We have green peas in the month of June. No man can make a good plea for a dram. Girls are fond of fine beads to wear round their

necks. Girls and boys must learn to read and spell. Men load hay with a pitch-fork. A load of oak wood is worth more than a load of

pine wood. A toad will jump like a frog. A saw-mill will saw logs into boards. A gourd grows on a vine, like a squash. You can not teach a deaf and dumb boy to speak. The man who drinks rum may soon want a loaf

of bread.
