GENIUS AND ART . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 June 1877

GENIUS AND ART . He doth bestride the narrow world like a Colossus . Such is the man of genius . Society is his laboratory . He is its living , thinking chemist : he tests , combines and analyzes the elements , forces and . * characters in a diverse humanity , with as penetrating a mind as Bunsen , his chemicals and minerals . Nothing baffles , nothing eludes , nothing bewiders him ; every thing is revealed to that Argus eye , that Herculean brain . Born , it may be , amid the . cobwebs and chaff and . hav of the manger he crowns his pale brow with a diadem of stars . and chains men with fetters , makes the terrible and gentle , the proud and the meek , the scoffer and the believer , slaves . Slaves ! Willing slaves to a soul that , scorns the low , the mean , the earthly , that loves the m gh , the exalted , the heavenly ... . . ; The power of men of genius defies calculation . The mathematician with his unerring figures , the philosopher , the historian alike fail to account for t...

THE REDWOODS OF CALIFORNIA- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 June 1877

THE REDWOODS OF CALIFORNIA- BY J . F . There are a number of natural phenomena in California that cause the average Missouri farmer to wall his eyes and to assume an expression of bewilderment . Among these , perhaps , there is none so deserving as the Redwood forests . The Redwood trees are second only to the giant pines ( Segnoia gigantea ) of Mariposa and Calevaras counties . My curiosity had long been excited over reports of these Redwood trees . Having been invited by the proprietor of one of the largest mills , to accompany him on a prospecting expedition , early one sunny Sabbat , h morning , I saddletl and straddled my neighbor s Indian pony and made as good time as possible to the lumberman s headquarters . Considering the g ait , which was neither a walk , gallop , pace , trot , nor a fox trot , but a sort of a mean proportional between them all , one might infer that the ride was enjoyed immensely . We decended from the Summit to Russian River in a buggy ; then left our c...

THE ICONOCLAST- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 June 1877

THE ICONOCLAST- BY A . c . j . —Adolphic Society . In the onward march of civilization there are many elements at work moulding the human mind and directing the human will . All around and about us there are evidences of the great diversity of influences that are constantly operating upon our actions . We recognize tli 2 existence of nttural laws , continuous and unchangc able ,. bounding the arena wherein man s action may be made manifest ; and within this sphere we observe that that which most nearly conforms with these immutable laws is most successful and most enduring . We see peculiarities that distinguish races and nations growing up from the effects of habit and national disposition , produced by climatic and other influences . Yet nowhere are there differences so manifest , so clearly shown by their relations to each other , to the nation , and to mankind . It is by means of these relations between man and man that individual benefits are secured and the general welfare pro...

A FLORENTINE STUDIO . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 June 1877

A FLORENTINE STUDIO . BY H . G . — Alethcnai . All Americans who visited Florence before the recent death of the old sculptor , James Hart , must feel a personal sorrow at his loss . His studio formed one of the pleasant spots of interest in a foreign city to many of his countrymen . Have you seen Mr . Hart s statue ? was a query sure to greet : the ears of sight-seers eager in the search for Florentine lions ; and when once the way to the sunny piazza where the artist spent his working hours was learned a second and third visit were almost sure to follow . Our first visit to the studio impressed itself particularly upon my memory from the difficulty we had in gaining an entrance . As in many other Florentine houses the heavy doors opening directly upon the street were bolted and barred against intruders . The customary knocker was either broken or lacking , and our feeble beating on the massive surface had more effect upon our knuckles than on the door . A workman outside , perceiv...

THE CLASSICAL AND PRACTICAL- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 June 1877

THE CLASSICAL AND PRACTICAL- ii . F . w . —Philomathean Society . In this age when utility seems to be the great mainspring to human culture and action ; when culture , for culturels sake , is not so much thought of as will that culture subserve to the practical ends of attaining power and position , theie has grownup a sentiment , yes I may truly say a predjudice , against anything that does not at first sight appear to meet our present wants and necessities . How many realize in educating themselves for the scramble for power and pelf that the minor places were filled long ago and that only by working out the idea that theres room at the top can they hope to attain a just reward for their labors ! No one can fail to admit that it needs in our ever active times , a man of liberal education to make a success as a scholar or a man of business . The superstructure of life should be laid on a firm foundation . Of what use to the student , the artisan , the professional man or farmer is...

HIGHER AIMS OF EDUCATION . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 June 1877

HIGHER AIMS OF EDUCATION . j . w . LA . MSON—Adelphic Society . There never has been a time when the cause of education received as much attention as it does to-day . The people have appreciated a few of the benefits which it has conferred upon man . They have seen how easily the educated man accumulates wealth or rises to prominence in political or social circles . They have seen the various branches of industry become so changed that a man cannot get respect oble employment unless he possesses a practical education . The result of this is , that they look upon education as a means of obtaining riches , or rising to positions of distinction , consequently they wish to give all an opportunity to obtain such a knowledge of whatever they wish to engage in , as will ensure success in life . To the populace , these are the highest aims of learning . But the eye . which investigates the subject more thhrottghly , soon perceives other aims , far nobler than these . It readily sees that th...

COLUMBUS- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 June 1877

COLUMBUS- BY F . s . c . —Philomathean Society . Never , perhaps , was there such a spirit of perseverance manifested in one person as in the character of the one now under consideration . His life was a continual combat with adversities ofthe severest nature , straitening him in circumstances , and deterring him till late in life from executing the plans of his youthful fancy . His reasonings , deduced from many years of studious labor , were scoffed at by the lettered ofthe day . He suffered the most intense privations ; and his solicitations were continual and as often met with petty protracting excuses . If the civilized world of that day had only known that there was one in their midst who was to open for the star of empire a channel to a new world , how many would have flocked to his aid ! The faculties of self emolument only by good to mankind , held in check what would have been in some an over-ruling ambition . He believed himself to be specified by a divine Creator to acco...

A CRITICSM- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 June 1877

A CRITICSM- BY I . O . U . The progressive movement , which resulted in the establishment of ourpresent practical schools and colleges , has done much for the advancement of education . Its influence and effect upon the people and the age cannot be overestimated . It is the outgrowth of the enlightened spirit of the times . It is still in its infancy , and before it becomes firmly engrafted as a part of our body politic , its friends and supporters would do well to review carefully its present condition : see in what direction it is tending , and in what parts it is antagonistic to its original purport . The men whose intellect gave birth to this system were men of broad arid catholic ideas , who had been shocked by the narrowness and bigotry of the old system , and the decay into which it had fallen , who saw no solution to the problem except that of making a complete revolution in education . This by arduous labor they have accomplished , and the educator sees new paths opening be...

ARCHITECTS AS EDUCATORS- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 June 1877

ARCHITECTS AS EDUCATORS- BY c . ii . BLACKALL—Scientific Society . There is something about a fine building , true in its design , powerful in its conception , and beautiful in its finish , that is ennobling and purifying to . the intelligent observer . He who has stood beneath the deep vaults of a Notre Dame or under the high dome of a St . Peters can testify to the feeling which such a monument can inspire , compelling one to acknowledge the divine in man which could produce such grandeur . The works of an architect have to ms etthe criticisms of two classes of people . The first and larger , will glance at a building as they pass by , and merely notice its prominent features , whether they be pleasing or distasteful , substantial or insecure . With these , the great mass ofthe people , the architect has but little to do as an educator , though a building has itseffect even upon the most casual observer . Men feel its influence even though they may not fully realize it , and an im...

ifBBOTOIBIJkl ^ [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 June 1877

ifBBOTOIBIJkl ^ When one is displeased , it is supposed that something can be proposed to secure harmony ; if the person have nothing to propose , we justly call him peevish , a complainer , wbose success is to torment instead of enlightening society . In bur last number we had something to say of the marking system . The students have acknowledged their lack of faith in it and accept it because nothing else is given them . Though we do not advise that the student shall be permitted to finish a course here , studying at his own pleasure to learn or to pass away the time , without having his labor in some way measured to approximately show his ability or fidelity as a scholar , and to p lace him on answerable terms with the University , we do believe that , could such be the case , there would be aroused a more lively interest in the work , and the true character of a student would sooner be exhibited . In this case the scholar would be left to exercise his own powers which would all...
