THE CHRISTMAS F ESTIVA I
Tlie entertainment and distribution of
presents on Saturday evening at the school
house, was quite a success, and so far as we
have learned gave entire satisfaction. The
presents were not so numerous nor costly as
those of last year but the Committee of la
dies charged with the management of the
distribution tried hard to serve all the chil
dren exactly alike and we believe succeeded
perfectly, so that there could be no com
plaint of partiality.
The large hall was crowded to its utmost
capacity including all the available standing
room and notwithstanding the exercises were
quite lengthy, they all maintained their pla
ces and appeared to be deeply interested,
which is a sufficient compliment to the abil
ity of the children and the care and good
judgment exercised by the teachers, Mr",
and Miss Sherman, without any commenda
tion from us.

Romero has been elected Delegate from
THE rRESCOTT LITERARY, DRAMATIC
AND UURAKY ASSOCIATION'.
Prcscott, A. T., Dec 27th, 1S7G.
EmTORsMrsnn. Having been asked many
times, questions concerning the Prescott
Literary .Dramatic and Library Association,
regarding its organization, object, prospects,
etc., etc I have concluded to give a few
facts pertaining to the same, by your con
sent and kindness through the columns of
your paper. The first meeting held for the
purpose of organizing a society of this kind,
was held in the Court room bv the consent
of Mr. Ed. F. Bowers, who kindly tcudered
us the use of the hall on Wednesday eve
ning, Nov. 8th. At this meeting nineteen
persons were present, all told. We there de
cided to organize a society of some kind on
a literary basis. We effected a temporary
organization. A committee was appointed
to canvass the town and see wliat could be
done, to draft a constitution and by-laws
and report at the next meeting.
At the next meeting the committee repor
ted that they had received much encourage
ment from all, to whom they had mention
ed the subject, and especially Rev. Mr. Mer
rill, who had a reading room in contempla
tion himself, and had already collected some
fifty-five dollars that he would turn over
to us if wc would organize a society on a
sound basis, and he would help us all he
could. The committee had not the time to
canvass the field thoroughly, so they repor
ted progress and asked leave to sit again,
On the evening of November 20th wc held
a meeting and effected a permanent organi
zation, and adopted a constitution and by
laws. I think 22 signed the roll that eve
ning, including several ladies. Gentlemen
paying five dollars and the ladies two dol
lars, as membership fee. Now as to tho ob
ject ol our association.
Article 1. of our constitution reads as fol
lows: The name and title of this organization
shall be The Prcscott Literary, Dramatic
and Library Association.
And its object shall be a free discussion
of any subject other than religious or polit
cal, coming before the Association.
And for the purposes of defusion of knowl
edge among its members, and the moral
improvement of our minds while passing the
leisure hours in social enjoyment.
I do not know that lean add anything to
the article to enlighten the public regarding
its objects but will tell what has been done
and what we expect to do, to carry out the
intention as embraced in the article.
Since our organization our number of
members has increased to forty-two. We
have collected, including membership fees
and subscription, $875: have purchased the
building, formerly occupied by the Prcscott
school, for a Library and Heading Room,
paying for the same $500. A. L. Moelcr
lias leased the Association, a lot on Cortex
street, for tho term of three years, free of
rent. Wc feel grateful to a number of
our friends of Prcscott for what they have
done for the Association, for they have giv
en liberally and cxpreascd a willingness to
do more if required, while others, wc think
able to help a society of this kind, have done
little. We think when it is generally
known that the object of this organization
is not for the benefit of its members alone,
but for the general good of' the community
at large, that all will contribute something
for the good of the Association.
In a short time the building will be mov
ed on to the lot, (leaded for the purpose) re
fitted and well supplied with a good library
of books, magazines and manv of the lcad
ing papers of the United State:, after which
it will be opened to the public.
I cannot speak of all the good that may
arise from this Association, in'onc paper the
entire paper may be devoted to this one sub
ject, and the half not be told, and as my ar
ticle is becoming quite lengthy, I will close,
you may hear from me again on this subject.
In conclusion, I wish to say that there
will be an entertainment given by the Asso
ciation, in the School house hall, on Monday
evening, Jan. 1st, 1877, and wc hope to sec
a full house, not only a general turnout of
the citizens of Prcscott, but would be pleas
ed to see our friends from Fort Whipple in
attendance. I remain, with respect,
Your obedient servant,
