[merged small][ocr errors]

Scholars, malo and female, after they have acquired a sufficient knowledge of Arithmetic, especially in the fundamental rules of Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, and Division, should be instructed mend that the son or daughter of every farmer, mechanic, or shop

de keeper, should enter deeply into the science as practised by the mer chant engaged in extensive business for such study would engross a great portion of time which might be more usefully employed quiring a proper knowledge of a trade, or other employment.

Persons employed in the common business of life, who do not keep regular accounts, are subjected to many losses and inconveniences; to avoid which, the following simple and correct plan is recommend. od for their adoption.

Let a small book be made, or a few sheets of paper sewed together, and ruled after the examplos given in this system. In the book, termed the Day Book, are duly to be entered, daily, all the transactions of the master or mistress of the family, which require a charge to be made, or a credit to be given to any person. No article

thus subject to be entered, should on any consideration be deferred till another day. Great attention should be given to write the transac. tion in a plain hand; the entry should mention all the particulars no. cessary to make it fully undorstood, with the time when they took

p

to whom delivered is to be mentioned. No scratching out may be cause it is sometimes done for dishonest purposes, and will weaken or destroy the authority of your accounts. But if, through mistako, any transaction should be wrongly entered the error must be rectificd by a new entry; and the wrong one may be cancelled by writing tha word Error in the margin.

A book, thus fairly kept, will at all times show the exact stato of a persons affairs, and have great weight, should there at any time bu a necessity of producing it in a court of justice.
