The dyer who by dyeing lives, a dire life maintains;
The glazier, it is known, receives-his profits from his panes.
By gardeners thyme is tied, 'tis true, when spring is in its prime;
But time and tide won't wait for you, if you are tied for time.

Then now you see, my little dears, the way to make a pun;
A trick which you, through coming years, should sedulously

shun:

The fault admits of no defence; for wheresoe'er 'tis found,
You sacrifice the sound for sense-the sense is never sound.

So let your words and actions too one single meaning prove;
And, just in all you say or do, you'll gain esteem and love:
In mirth and play no harm you'll know, when duty's task is
done,

But parents ne'er should let you go unpunished for a pun.

THE END.

THE

CIVIL

SERVICE

GEOGRAPHY:

Being a Manual of Geography, General and Political, arranged especially for Examination Candidates and the Higher Forms of Schools, by the late LANCELOT M. DALRYMPLE SPENCE (of H.M. Civil Service). Revised throughout by THOMAS GRAY, One of the Assistant Secretaries to the Board of Trade. With Six Coloured Maps, Woodcuts, and Index of more than Three Thousand Names.

OPINIONS OF THE PRESS.

A good manual for practical purposes. The most recent political changes of territory are notified, and the latest statistics inserted from authoritative sources.' ATHENEUM.

'The outline maps and tabular statements are constructed on a novel plan, and on a system as effectual as it is original. The most recent authorities have been consulted, and it is a thoroughly reliable as well as a most ingenious compendium of geography.'-CIVIL SERVICE GAZETTE.

'A better book for fixing the most prominent data in the memory could not be conceived. For a text-book in the higher classes of schools, where oral lessons are built up on the pupil's preparation, this will be found to excel any other manual in use. Its method is excellent.'-PAPERS FOR THE SCHOOLMASTER.

[ocr errors]

'It is original in its plan, and a student will find it much easier to "get up geography in the manner suggested by this book than by using any of the older geographies. We have seldom seen so much labour and care in so small a form.' LLOYD'S WEEKLY NEWS.

The following are a few of the many favourable Opinions already pronounced upon the work by members of the Scholastic Profession :-

'I consider it one of the most valuable manuals for teaching or learning geography. The tabular lists of the principal divisions, towns, seas, gulfs, rivers, &c. are arranged in a practical manner, and give evidence of the great care, labour, and ability bestowed upon its compilation. As a text-book for schools, for advanced classes, or candidates for the Civil Service, I consider the work invaluable.'SAMUEL CREW, Head Master, Elm House School, Great Berkhampstead.

'I have made use of the "Civil Service Geography" in one of my classes, and I find it excellently adapted for impressing the political and physical characteristics of each country clearly upon the minds of my pupils. The arrangement of the facts is very good, and the outline maps are models of neatness and perspicuity. I have thoroughly tested it by actual use in my school.'-J. N. LANGLEY, M.A. LL.D., Head Master, Mowbray House School, Wolverhampton.

"Spence's "Civil Service Geography" is quite a model for compactness, comprehensiveness, facility of reference, and accuracy. Indeed, for the object chiefly aimed at, I know of none so eligible.'-T. BUCKLEY SMITH, L.C.P., Head Master, People's College, Nottingham.

"When I put your "Civil Service Geography" into the hands of my boys, who were preparing for the University Local Examinations, they thought it exactly suited to their requirements, and all wished to be supplied with it. The maps and general arrangement render it a very desirable book to those who wish to get up the subject rapidly.'-Rev. E. BODEN, M.A., Principal, Royal Grammar School, Clitheroe.
