How the Bright School Children of
Flagstaff Observed Wash
Ills Memory Revered In Recitation

Eloquent Tributes to the Greatness
of the Father of Ills Country.
"Ills life was gentle; and the elements
So mlx'd In him thnt Nuturo might stand up
And say to all the world, 'This was a maul'"
The littli! old public school house,
endeared to m.wy by tender associa
tions and fond recollections, was ar
rayed in its best holiday attire last
Friday afternoon when a large number
of citizens assembled to hear the Wash
ington's birthday program of exercises,
which had beon prepared with zealous
earn by the teacheis and pupils. The
honest face of the Father of His Coun
try, whose portrait was entwined in
the ample folds of the gloiious emblem
of Libert, beamed upon the gathering
from one of the walls, while gentle
Martha smiled benignly from the other
side. The pictures of these two fam
ous characters of history, so roverenced
and beloved by the American people,
seemed to shed asweet benison upon the
struggling disciples of learning, and
the all-pervading spirit of pitriotism
was gcnorouslv demonstrated in the
enthusiasm displayed by tlio little men
and women who will one day take
their places in the various walks of life
for which thoy are now fitting them
The occasion was ono of peculiar
joyousness to all to tho teachers, ue-
cause they saw that the excellent re
sults of a noble calling are appreciated
by tho parents of the children; to the
pupils, becauso it was a brief and
agreeable recreation on thu weary way
to the graduation goal; and to the vis
itors, because it was a gladsome rest nt
the shrine of memort, a chonl of whose
music was tuangi-d at sight of the
many happy youngfaees peepingabovo
tho school desks, the impressive "chalic
talks" of thu blackboard, the slates
and pencils and the paraphernalia of
the school room, sans tho far-reaching
birch wielded by tho well-muscled.

Tho piesenco of Comrades D. M.
Riordan. J. Gulhrio Savage, Edward
Cress, L. L. Burns, J. C. Milligan and
J. R. Lockett of the G. A. R., was a
touching reminder of tho glorious
principles of patriotism for which they
fought, aud Mr. Riordan in a few
graceful remarks recalled thrilling in
cidents of the battlefield of Gettysburg.
The excellent showing mado by the
pupils of thu various departments was
a splendid tribute to tho worth of their
teachers Misses Beardsley, Smith and
Brannen and thu directors of tho
school also deserve their full measure of
praise that the school has reached its
present superior standard. From the
little toddler, lisping his rhyme with
bashful mien, to the embryo orator,
emboldened by the presence of his
friends and a growing pair of lungs,
all recited surprisingly well, and a trio
of little maids with well-trained voices
showed that music is not one of the
lost arts in Flagstaff. The life of
George Washington from tho cradle to
the grave, with all its lessons of truth
and nobleness of character, was pre
sented iu a vivid, eutertaiuiug manner,
and the audience of big folks had a linn
opportunity to refresh their memories
in regard to his private lifo and deeds
Some of the town's representative
citizens caught the fervor of the eele
bra.tiou from the children, aud at the
Invitation of Miss Beardsley, these
gentlemen responded pleasantly: Al.

TRIBUTE TO WASHINGTON.
Dear friends, wj know you all have como
To help us honor Washington,
Tho Father of our Nation, a nobleman so
He deigned to cast away a crown that we

His dust now mingles with tho earth he freed

Yet wo rejoice his name to voice o'er bill and

And still we'll honor Washington with happy,
Still on und on we'll do the same through each
Then shout "Hurrah" for Washington a
nobleman so grand
He proudly scorned a proffered crown that

A piercing scieam tore tho air into
shreds in the vicinity of the Bowery
the other calm, moonlit evening. It
was a cry of distress, uttered in a clear
sopraua voice that must have succeeded
in crossing tho high Cs at somo time
in its wild career.
"Help! Help!" she cried, and strong

as there were several other pools to
