One of the last great quoit matcnes was held 23 >ears tto today at Dunferm- line, Scotland, when Thomas Snedden defeated George Graham In a contest for 11000 and the. British champion- ship Since then -popular Interest In such contests baa gradually died out, although several attempts have been made to revive the game, the 'rural form of quoits seems alsd to be dying out. Practically everv man whose youth spent In the country or In a vil- lage, blacksmith, the postmaster and other dignitaries, including sometimes the doctor and the parson, pitted their strength and skill against the farmers.' Some of the old-timers still go out behind tbe blacksmith ghop or the liv- ery stable and play horseshoes, but the rising generation teems to disre- gard the good old game.
