Special Premiums and Honorable Mention. The highly finished drawings of this gentleman afford most satisfactory evidence of his qualifications as teacher of drawing in the San Francisco High School. We were particularly struck with the spirited "Spaniel's Head," which lives upon the paper. The eyes look out from between their silken-fringed lids as if their vital functions were fully developed. [P. 286; the word "lives" appears in italics in the catalogue.]
