number of days in each month may be very easily remembered by recollecting, that the first seven are long and short alternately; and again the remaining five, long and short alalternately. And taking them in numerical order, they are— 1, 3, 5, 7, long ; 2, 4, 6, short; 8, 10, 12, long, and 9, 11, short. The short months, with the exception of the second or February, being each 30 days, and the long 31 days each.* Leap year may be known by dividing the numbers expressed by the two last figures, in the number of the year, according to the Christian era, by 4: if there is no remainder, it is leap year; otherwise the remainder shows how many years it is after leap year. To this there are the exceptions respecting the centuries before noticed. Jr. p H JP D H. M.

This table is used in Astronomical and Geographical calculations. Examples of Addition are not necessary. * In mercantile transaetions, numerically reckoning the months has some advantages. If I have a bill passed, suppose in January, payable 3 months after date, January being the first month, 1 add thereto the number of months, the bill has to run, and instantly discover it will be due or payable in the 4th wionth, without the necessity of seperately counthong the months. SUBTRACTION DIVERS DENOMINATIONS oft, COMPOUND SUBTRACTION. PLACE the numbers to be subtracted under each other, as before directed in Addition, and place the greatest uppermost. Begin at the right hand, and subtract each number in the lower line, from that above it, and write down the several remainders." - - When the lower number is greater than that above it, subtract it from as many as make one of the next higher denomination, to the remainder add the upper number, and the sum will be the whole remainder, carry this one which was borrowed to the number of the next denomination, which subtract as before, and thus proceed to the highest, which subtract as in whole numbers. ... When the number in the lower line is equal to that above it, write a cipher in the remainder, unless the figure or figures in the next lower denomination, already subtracted, was or were greater than the figure or figures in the top line imme*iately aboveit, in which case one more should be subtracted.* If there are an equal number of farthings, or other parts annexed to the lowest denomination, the cipher is always. to be omitted. The method of proof is the same as in simple subtraction. Hence, the reason of borrowing, both in simple and o numbers, plainly appears, and the same method may be easily applied.to other compound quantities. - - 1. From 12 10 3 2. From 4 1 1 0 3.
