WALHALLA, S. C.
WEDNESDAY, MAROU 8, 1022.
THE AD. SPELLING CONTEST.
Yes, tho answers to tho advertised
mis-spelled words in last woek's Cou
rier came in-l i 0-odd of them. A lot
were handed in at tho oillce, moro of
them carno through tho mail from
all parts of tho county, and a few
from both North Carolina and Geor
gia. And, taken as a whole, it was
n woll-gotten-up bunch of replies
that came into our hands for con
sideration.
'Mr. Gribble, tho advertising man
who workod up tho contest, left no
instructions ns to whether answers
were to bo in manuscript or could be
typewritten, and wo found it abso
lutely impossiblo to grado manu
script letters by the same standards
ns those that apply to typewritten
matter. Therefore, in Justice, as it
seems to us, .to all contestants, we
?have taken the liberty of dividing
the prizes into two sections-manu
script nnd typewriter specimens. Wo
believe this will prove satisfactory
to all contestants.
Of the 142 replies received, 42
contestants gave all the mis-spelled
words along with the correct spell
ing of them. Thirty-eight of these
correct replies were in manuscript
and eight were written on the type
writer. Of the romaining 100 re
plies no one had all the words cor
rected properly, the range of inaccu
racies being from one to nine incor
rect answers.
So that oach contestant who had
an error or errors in his or her Hst
submitted may see Just wherein he
or she "fell down," we give below
tho completo Usl of advertisers, ?te
mis-spelled word and, the o?rreol rt
spelling in each instance the word
given first ls incorrect, the second

Walhalla - One-half of tho
Second Prize .$1.00
(2d)-Miss Lila E. Roedor, of
Westminster, S. C.-Ono
half of Socond 'Prize.$1.00
These prizes wero fixed by Mr.
Gribble at $3.00 for tho first prize
nnd $2.00 for ibo second prize. But
since ho failed to spoclfy that tho
replies must bo in manuscript form,
and since we could find no way of
accurately reconciling a judgment
ns between manuscrlps and typewrit
ten matter, we havo made this di
vision of tho prizes. Otherwise wo
would havo had to throw out those
made on (ho typewriter, considering
only tho manuscripts. This, it seems
to us, would hardly havo been either
"faro" or "fair" to those who used
the typewriter, since Mr. Gribble did
not think to make the distinction.

Average Now: ls 44 Gallons.
Forty-four gallons of milk is used
by each person in the' United States
annually, according to estimates
made by the dairy division of the
United States Department of Agri
culture. This estimate refers to the
whole milk and does not include thal
which ia c?*<iumed In the form of let
cream, choose and butter. The
amount is about twice as much as
that usod In 1890, when the per cap
ita consumption was approximately
22 gallons. The dairy specialist
point out that the increase in tht
uso of milk in tho last 30 years is at
great as in the preceding 280 years.
The present-day consumption ol
milk in tho United States, they say
Is equal to about one pint per day
or as much as two small glasses
Thai is not a groat amount when it ii
known that In includes not only th(
milk that is used for drinking, bu
also that usod In cooking. This ls f
small amount compared to tho poi
capita consumption in somo Euro
pean countries. In Sweden ant
Switzerland, for instance, nearly 7(
gallons are used by each person an
nualty.
