TH? OLD BLUE-BACK SPELLER j
(By J. J- Glenn.)
From The Madlsonvlllo (Ky.) Hust
When I read In a newspaper a short
time ago that by an act of the legisla
ture of Georgia that the OLD EL?E-]
BACK SPELLER had been ,-estoredj
to the public schools of that ?tat? O?U
that this old book of blessed' nfc-niorV'
was again .coming into its own,. I felt
n thrill of Joy as I have seldom felt
during rp" whole existence.
This Item or r?w? caused me In my
mind to go back to my childhood dayB
and then to days later In life wu?" !
there were momenta that caused mc,
to be glad that I waa living. I well re
member with what pride I wore my J
first red-top boots, then my school'
:!uys when after I had been under the
instruction of my teacher a sho rt- time
that I went home at eventide and re
ported that I "knew all my letters."
And still later I had progressed un
til I could spell all tho words up to
"baker" and in time had gotten to
"incomprehensibility," and .finally to
tho word "whortleberry," which was
the last word in the book. And how my
._Had ---'tl; "ride -"hen 1 ?'*ui
boon able to spell down all the-boye
and girls of my class and was declar
ed the champion speller of tho school.
When I arrived at young manhood
and school days were-ever I sought
tho girl ot my choice, to me tho
brightest, tho prettiest and sweetest
of the whole country and made-court
to her. Then when Bhe was asked to
go through Ufo with me she consented
and our troth waa plighted, tho^e waa
happiness ?that was beyond that ot
mortal Ups to express.
And when the first born came to
bless that humble home there waa joy
In tho household, such joy as comes
to thousands ot others who are sim
ilarly situated. And then again a lit
tle over two years ago when news
carno from Baltimore where the demo
crats were holding a 'convention to
nominate a candidate for the presi-1
doney of the United States, that Wood
row Wilson, the Princeton schoolmas
ter, had boen chosen hy, that party to
iiacome tho head of the greatest cdu?-1
try upon which the sun ever shone, I
felt that my cup of joy was tull to run
- And n?w tn my older days I ami
again made supremely happy In the
. thought that my old fr?en':, thc com-1
panton ot my youth, tho OLD BLUE?

There ls one Blblo, only one, one isl
nil wo need-there has never been In
the United States but one speller that I
was worthy the name-that is Web- j
stor's OLD BLUE-BACK.
The Georgia, speller is to have the
same old but ever new pictures of thc
long ago. How the boys abd girls of
the then loved to read of the Farmer
who found tho bad boy in his apple
tr co and how. ho brought the young
thief to terms by throwing stones at
the young rascal who was perched oh
Uie limbs of tho troe. Then there waa
"The Country Maid and Her Milk
Pall," and "'Tho Two Dogs,' where
Tray got a beating for being caught
In bad company. .There waa also tho
"Partial Judge,' whose bull gored his
neighbor's ox, or others that wero al
most as intorestlng, really more so
than tho tales of the "Arabian Nights.'
The Tri-Weekly Constitution of At
lanta, easily tue leading paper of the
?South, holds this book ? in such high
esteem' that lt . offers a copy of that
speller as a premium with each yearly
subscriber to that journal. If I did
not already have a copy of the old
blue-back spellers and could not get
ono otherwise, I would at once for
ward my subscrlnticn to the Consti

and Grandfather's Old Blue-Back

improved by either revision or sub

last Saturday, which resulted in a
score, of 14-0 favoring Clemson, was
a great exhibition of high class foot
ball. . ,The game was intensely excis
ing from beginning to end and both
teams showed good training and great
lighting spirit. Considerable rivalry
exists between the two-schools and
the Citadel has been trying for years
to put out a team that would beat
the Tiger aggregation. But regard
less of this" there is a general ten
dency among the Citadel cadets to|
prefer de'feat when such must come
at the hands ot the Cleroson team]
rathor from other teams in the State.
One ot the reaspns for this' "ts (the ad
mirable fact that they'win solely up
on their strength and tactics and not
by any lowly methods. In criticizing
our recent conquerors too much
pari8o can not be given them for the
clean, hard fought game which they
put up and for their gentlemanly con
duct while in the city. The same may
bo said of the Bulldog Warriors, but
that of course, ls for otbere to deter

Clemson, we wish you success dur
