Spelling matches.

--Spelling matches are all the rage in winsted, Conn. They had one in Camp Hall, Monday night, and collected $40 in ten cent admissions. Nine schools in the town sent five picked spellers. First prize, Webster's unabridged pictorial dictionary. They used up the spelling-book, two or three geographies, and had to bring out the classics before some of the sharpest spellers would succumb.
