The Ability to Spell Correctly Should Not be Valued

Because the absurdities and intricacies of our pres- ent spelling hav made a mastery of them the most dif- ficult and long-continued task of the average student, a false value has been placed on spelling ability. "Cor- rectness" in reality, mere conformity in spelling is too generally assumed to be an indication of su- perior education, whereas as has been shown it is only evidence of a natural or a specially traind eye-memory.
