Interesting Quote
"I don't know what is the matter with the young people nowadays, but I rarely find one among them who spells well. I advertise for graduates from the public schools, and I require the diploma as a reference...so I know I am getting what I advertise for. Now they surely ought to be well grounded in English, but I don't believe I find one really good speller among a hundred applicants."
This is from an article in "Wide Awake" magazine from 1889.
