His lectures are marvels of grace and eloquence, and are intensely interesting to all who hear them. His chemical demonstrations never fail, and his thoughts are expressed in the clearest and choicest terms. His lecture A Wonderful Structure was delivered in Cincinnati on four lecture courses last season, and one of them was the Unity Course, where it had been presented the preceding year; this being the only lecture that has been repeated in this course during the past twenty-three years. Prof. Dinsmore filled the entire season and the committees in nearly every instance have made application for a return engagement.
