Zinc is readily thrown down out of its solution in oil of vitriol and water, by transmitting through it a current of sulphuretted hydrogen gas, as we have seen. Most other metals are also capable of being thrown down by this gas, but iron is one of a few exceptions. Hence, supposing iron and zinc had both been dissolved in oil of vitriol and water, and the proposition had been to separate the iron from the zinc, this might readily have been effected by pouring through the mixed solution a stream of sulphuretted hydrogen gas, which would have thrown down the zinc, but left the iron.

We have not quite left the zinc yet. We shall return to it hereafter ; meantime, let the wine-glass be labelled "Sulphuret of Zino," covered with a pane of glass to protect it from dust, and set aside, fig. 10. Fig. 10.

AGREEMENT OF THE SUBJECT AND VERB.
SULPHURET

While the subject of a proposition may agree with a qualifying

adjective and a limiting or defining article, it specially agrees with ZINC

the verb. The agreement is of two kinds, one of form, another of substance ; one flexional, another logical.

We may express these facts differently, by saying that if the verb is in the plural number, its subject must be in the plural number; and if the subject is in the plural number, in the plural number must the verb be. In other words, both subject and verb take the same condition; and this is what I mean by stating that the subject and the verb must agree. Avoid, therefore, the error common with uneducated people, of joining together subjects and verbs of different numbers. This error most commonly consists in omitting the 8 where it should be placed, namely, in the third per

son singular, and putting the 8 where it should not be placed, The student will have noticed that the sulphuretted hydro- namely, in the third person plural. I subjoin the present tense gon, or bydro-sulphuric acid gas, by which the throwing down in its
