|A Grand Success.
The spelling match and pie supper given Friday evening, Feb. 26, by
the Walters school, Limestone Township, Miss Clara Brown, teacher
was a grand success.
Messrs. Shoup and Odewalt rendered some excellent music after which
Miss Pearl Haller and Oscar Walters came to the front of the room
and chose up. Thirty persons stood up to spell. All spelled well.
After a time only the Misses Ada Stewart, Pearl Haller, Myrtle Bontz,
Edith Walters and Eunice Walters remained standing. Finally Miss
Edith Walters was declared champion speller.
Mr. Blandin then mounted a chair and in his jovial manner, sold
fifteen pies which brought $15.15. The highest price paid for a pie
was $1.75, by Will Davis.
The house was crowded to its utmost capacity. There was nothing to
mar the pleasure of the evening. After the pies were all sold, more
music was given and Mr. Todd sang several songs. A more liberal
crowd of young people cannot be found than those who attended the
pie supper. Hurrah for Walters School.
