co,. The spelling match given by thu ladies
of the Methodist church, in tlto church
parlors on Thursday evening, drew out
an immense audience, every seat hi the
house being packed. The llrst part of
thu evening's entertainment consisted of n
duet by Messrs. McKce. nnd Bobbins, and
Mrs. W. P. Wright and Miss Carrie
L'ngles, and one by Mcrs. ltobblns and
Hacker ami Mlses I ngles and Pace, and
a select reading by .Mrs. Wright, all of
which were very good, and were, greeted
with hearty applause.
We hope our readers, In reading the
following synopsis ofthe spelling match,
should they note any mistakes, will
attribute tho same to the nol-e of the
audience throughout the evening. It was
our purpose to give a full and correct re
port, and wc were deterred from doing so
by this fact. In many instances we were
unable to c.ttch the words pronounced by
Mr. Dewey, and In as many case4, unable
to ee the speller, or hear i-t what way
the word was spelled.
Then tho captains', Mrs. Vood Kitten-
house and Col. McKcalg, took their
places upon the rostrum, and tliechoslng
of Miles lor the spelling contest began.
The companies, when all tho sellers had
been placed upon the lloor, wero each
twenty-eight strong, among whom wero
a number of the best spellers in tho city.
All now being In readiness, the contest
lor the prize began.
Several words were given out by Mr.
Dewey, who had been selected as the per
son to conduct the allair, which wero
spelled correctly, when tho work "spike
nard" was ollered to Mr. Tom. Kerlh,
who failed to put an "e" in tlie first sylla
ble, and he retired, amid tho applause of
the audience. The next .victim was Dr.
Wardner, who was sure .that "fraught"
was spelled with an "o" In
stead of an "a" and ho too
went down, with the clapping of hands
and stamping of feet. All went well
again after order had been restored until
Mr. Thorns was asked to spell "pearch,"
to which he put n llnal "e," and ho was
requested to take his seat, which ho did,
"Aulu" was then pronounced by the
master of ceremonies, and W. G. Alden,
whoo turn came next after Mr, Thorns,
missed. Mr. Pace was then given a trial
at the samo word, and thought tho easiest
way to get out of the predicament was
by saying "on" and the word was passed
to Patrick Purcell, who also failed, as did
Mrs. Hlttciihouse. Tho next person to
whom tho, word was given was
Duff. Haynle, who spelled It correctly and
was loudly applauded. Mr. A. II. Saf
ford was then given a trial on ' freeze,"
and fallal. "Mcnse" was then tho
means of causing tho death of thrco un
fortunate victims on each side, but Miss
Houston, ouu of tho ladles whom it was
predicted would surely win tho prize,
gave tho proper letters. C. "V. Hender
son was slaughtered by "calous,"
ns was tho Kev. Mr. Wallar by
"cypress." Mr. Pitcher went "where
tho woodbine twlueth" because
ho spelled ''genius" wrong; Jesse Phlllls
spelled "Idyl" with an "o" and took her
scat. "Seignior" win the caltso of Mr.
Sloven's fall, that gentleman placing"!"
before "e." Frank Howe wont down on
"cavalier," .substituting ','1" for "n".
Messrs. Jones and Conlott received their
death blow. troni "eaotllate."
"Pageantry" was gwx to Mr.
Ilaythorn, and ho retired, having
omitted "n" In the second syllable. Mr.
Fisher retired before "corneous" m did
several others, and tho honor of selling
the word correctly was awarded to Miss
I.ula Puce. Mis N'anule Mckee, also one
of the predicted winners of the prize,
omitted no "I" In "raillery" and retired.
Mr. Comings put an "e" nt the end of
the second syllable of "entlcer," and was
sent to his seat amid tho applause of the
audience. The last moments of Miss It
zle Steel drew nigh, mid she expired
while attempting to spell tho word
"aiKiloglze." Lulu Pace thought that
"codlcal" was not supplied with enough
letters, and added n final "e," which was
the cause of her denth. "Besieging" was
too much for Mrs. Stllwcll, as was "men
acing" lor Miss Molllo Mchtee. City
Clerk Hawkins, who up to this time had
withstood the slings and arrows ot the
teacher, who had cast nt him a number
of thu most difficult words pronounced
during the evening, went to his ent
after a violent battle with "rancorous."
Mls Hattlo Wheeler went down because
ot her Inability to correctly spell "rcu
citato." Mr. Lelghlon, a commission
merchant of this- city, got It Into his
brain that "emptiness" was too full of
letters, and went down tor omitting the
"p." Mr. Stilwell was the next to re
ceive hi death blow from "equinoctial,"
a did Mr. Sloo from "gene
alogy." Miss Houston, who had :ilo
stood the battle like a heroine of old, was
now compelled to succumb to tho "bol
terou," and .Miss Ella Steele retired in
consequence of her failure to supply the
proper letters in "sycophant." The con
test now rested between Major Morrill
ami Mls Temple, a lady visiting tho resi
dence of Mr. Bobbins, and many specu
lations, as to who would conquer, were
made. Major Morrill's ability as a busi
ness man was well-known, and his knowl
edge of the proper way to
spell tin.' words pronounced for him
up to this time had created In tho minds
of the sfiectators great confidence In his
ability to carry oil' the horn, but the
same feeling In regard to Ml Temple's
prowess had al-o lieen created, and the
excitement ran high throughout tho en
tire hou-e. It was the major's turn to
make a trial fur the prize, and
the word "Ilcork-e" was pro
nounced for him, which he
polled with a "q"1 In the
second syllable, Instead of "r."
The wonl was propounded to
Miss Temple, who spelled It with a "c"
which was according to tho spelling book
from which the words had all been
taken. A dispute here arose, a portion
ofthe audience declaring that both ways
were correct, which was found to bo true,
by the word being referred to the um
pires, Mr. S. P. Wheeler and MIssKogers,
and the major wa Informed that ho was
at liberty to have another trial, but ho
