Sister Billings nadved to Nauvoo about the same time asthe Prophet Joseph Smith, ar.d while there was blessed and set apart to administer to the sick and act in the capacity of nurse, in which, calling she has been tklllful and reliable, until her health rendered it impossible for her to act the part of an accbUcher longer. She with her husband and family emigrated to Utah In 1848, and were soon after called upon to go and help bui d up settlements In SJaopete County. They returned to Prbvo ia 1864, and in 1866 Bro. Billings died. Sister Billings has bten a Wfdow for thirteen Pres. interesting lecture to a very large audience Friday evening May 9, in theOgden City Hall. Elder D. M. Stuart made the opening prayer, and afterwards introduced Mrs. Pratt to the assembly. The lady read a few written items on establishing a Woman's Medical Hospital and then addressed the people on that and other subjects connected with the knowledge of medicine and surgery, from which we make a few extracts: "knowledge feeds aud fattens on iUIf, The Lord helps such as do an they caa, thejv trust in Him. It is good to become and have a complete knowledge of some branch of work. Our young ladles ought to become informed upon these matters, that they may be jgood 'ml)tb wiToY tne future race. Woman must work' her way up to the position she desires to fill la life; and her mission as a mother is a sacred ohe Kurslng is , a profession to be studied, one which needs preparation; a training school for nurses should be associated with a hospital. Elder Stuart" expressed his interest in the subject, and said hecouldsee howit could be sustained whAn the programme was fully made out, be favored the institution aud would aid it. Sister Snow said she had done much to favor this object, but still felt interested. We are laying a foundation for the Kingdom ef God which embraces all creeds and all peoples. The need increases a the time advances, all that we do in the right direction will result in good. Eider n considered the subject worthy of attention, he disapproved of women employing men physicians; ha thought a hospital necessary and would help to sustain everything that helped to build up the Kingdom of God' 8.
