The views fine and really fascinating, one may gaze, upon them and imagine being in the famous city itself. Dr. Talmage showed his kindness of heart and his interest in child life in generously giving this lecture free for the benefit of the Kindergarten, and the ladies who are working so industriously and persistently to establish this system of education in Utah feel very grateful tp the Doctor for the service rendered, both at this time and heretofore in behalf of this work.
