[Blind Children]

At the School Board for London on the 3rd inst. two blind children, a boy and girl, who had won the Gardner's Trust Scholarship, were introduced and congratulated by the chairman. Prizes were also awarded to fourteen girls for their proficiency in animal physiology. The prizes were the gift of the National Health Society, and consisted of sums of money. A proposition by Miss Taylor as to the remission of fees was discussed, and was eventually got rid of by means of the previous question. An inspector in drawing was appointed for one year at a salary of 200 per annum. The board adjourned till Oct. 12 next.
