LITERARYDEPARTMENT, [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1877

LITERARYDEPARTMENT, MANFORD SAVAGE . THE TWO LYRES . [ Translated from the German of Anastasius Green by PEARL . ] Thrilling through my inmost spirit Are two Lyres always near ; Wildly one peals forth its music , But the other s soft and clear . And two pow rs , forever hostile , Give vibrations to the strings ; Like a storm one sweeps the cordage , One as light as angel wings . As the maddened foaming torrent Wildly leaps from rock to rock , As the heavy bolted thunders In the mountain passes shock , As the fall of avalanches In the narrow valleys staid , So within my bosom ringing Oft one harp is fiercely plaped . But , like kiss of morning zephyr On the rose all dewbepearled , Like the low salute of loved ones , From some far off , far off world , Like the harmony that murmurs In the cypress boughs at night . Sounds the other Lyre , whispering ; Wakened by a touch so light . Though these pow rs stand fast united , Each the others strength and stay , Yet relentless and unyielding ...

PROGRESS IN AMERICA . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1877

PROGRESS IN AMERICA . The same keen and disciplined but tremendous energy which has driven us so swiftly onward in our career of material prosperity , and which is yet surging hither and thither across the continent in accumulating waves , has operated alike in all departments of human action . Not only has America excelled in the mere organization of human industry and the gathering of riches , but Americans have stood pre-eminent in every domain of original thought , in every sphere of labor , physical or mental . It would be too long a story to enumerate the daring of our seamen , the exhaustless fertility and practical adaptedness of our myriads of inventors , the triumphs of our mechanics who have surpassed the world in making whatever can be made , that requires beauty , strength , or skillful handling . Their enormous steam ers dash through the billows of every sea , and their engineers go abroad to construct monster railroads for foreign powers . In science and literature ev...

THE CHINESE IN NEVADA . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1877

THE CHINESE IN NEVADA . We are permitted to make the following extract from a letter written by our former schoolmate , H . F . Baker , who is now at Virginia City , Nevada , from which place he writes : * * * Did I promise to tell you about the Chinese festival that I attended a week or two ago ? It was quite a novel sight . The Celestials built themselves a temple . ( It looked to me like a big wood shed with one end knocked out . ) At the entrance , upon each side , stood two mammoth effigies of some sort of guardian angels . They each held a club in one hand and a dagger in thj other , which were intended to warn all wicked men not to come near . On the rough walls , in the inside , large pictures or prints upon fire-cracker paper were hung , representing notable personages ot Chinese history and mythology , chief among whom was Confucius , in honor of whom the festival was given . He was represented as a benevolent old man with white beard and moustache , and . looked more like...

WORDS . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1877

WORDS . Don t be in a hurry to use up the alphabet . Use it sparingly . Be careful of it . Your ability will not be judged by the rapidity with which you can exhaust the alphabet . The student who can by heroic effort lug into a sentence the largest words , is not necessarily the best or most refined scholar . You might as well assert that the lady who performs the office of street sweeper with five yards of silk trailing behind her , is more of a woman than the one who clothes herself in a sensible becoming manner . The day has passed , when one s standing as a lady or a gentleman is measured by the number of yards contained in her or his clothes , So too has the day gone by , when we estimate the worth of a man s thoughts by the number of letters in the words he clothes them in . It is a mistake to suppose that the use of large woi - ds is elegant , or in any manner exhibits thought . We confess , however , that this opinion prevails among many people and students , not Sophomores...

SOMETHING ABOUT GOETHE . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1877

SOMETHING ABOUT GOETHE . J In studying true genius , inferior capacity need not always distrust its own judgements . If we study and learn to delight in the writings of gifted men , surely we ought to be able to express something of what they have given us . Ifwe are not sufficiently enlightened to positively affirm that Platos philosophy was correct and Aristotle s defective , we beg the privilege of humbly offering our opinion after we have given enough study to the subject to justify its possession . Those who read Goethe must expect to study him . It cannnt be said of his writings that he who runs may read . Although his style is perhaps to be reckoned as the most excellent that the modern world can exhibit , although his poetry is brief and expressive and his prose concise , full and melodious yet he never can be wholly understood . Critics are often brought to a standstill , powerless to penetrate him and this has perhaps given rise to DeQuincy s remark that Goethe made his wr...

SCIENCE AND ART . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1877

SCIENCE AND ART . MARY LARNARD . SCIENCE STUDIES AND ESSAY WRITING . At a meeting of teachers , assembled to discuss educational topics , the question was pithily but earnestly asked Does education educate . More recently under similar circumstances a discussion arose as to the ability of students pursuing scientific courses of study to compete with the devotees of language and literature , in essay writing . The question may be put thus , —Have linguistic and literary studies any decided preference over others in aiding one to write , matter and manner considered , so as to win the approval of a reader or an audience ? This seems in a lower degree very much like , Does education educate . Do results follow causes ? May we arrive at predetermined points by taking the road leading thereto ? Are these roads with beginers , finger boards , turning points and destinations in education ? These are indeed serious questions , if they have any meaning at all . The days devoted to preparatio...

POISONS OF THE INTELLIGENCE . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1877

POISONS OF THE INTELLIGENCE . In a series of articles , in the Revue des Deux Mondes , M . Charles Richet discusses the poisons which affect the brain , under the title of Poison :- of the Intelligence . From the article , in the number dated Febiiary 15 , 1 S 77 , we extract the following account of the action of alcohol . The study of the poisons which act upon the intellectual faculties possesses not onl y physiological and psychological , but also a social interest . It appears that man , in all . ages and in every country , has been discontented with his intellectual power , and has sought to stimulate it by poisonous substances . Now in all poisonings of the nervous system , the poison before destroying , over excites . It is this excitement which men seek With ardor , with passion even . Once become a habit , it imposes itself with such force that nothing can combat it . It is a true social peril as well for the Chinese and Hindoos who smoke opium as for Europeans who drink a...

BIRDS . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1877

BIRDS . The birds of modern times could hardly be compared with reptiles yet the earlier forms were comprehensive , the first fossils possessing reptilian characteristics , in having teeth and . vertebrated tails . But it seems that the birds of today have reached the highest developement possible . I think all will agree in saying that Ornithology is a very pleasant and interesting study . It is one which is the more interesting on account of the beauty of the specimens ; and then there is such a diversity of size , form , color and movements of the . different families , that the study does not become monotonous . The kinds of birds are as various as the regions they inhabit ; each especially adapted to its mode of life , they live only in such localities as are suited to their wants . By making a study of this fact , the amateur collector may know in what kind of a place to look for the desired specimen and thus save time and trouble . He should learn each bird s song or call not...

ART INSTRUCTION . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1877

ART INSTRUCTION . Chapman in his American Drawing-book sets out with this motto : Every one who can learn to write , can learn to draw . How many unwary persons have been deceived , or misled by this short sentence ! And how few persons , see at first the wide difference between Penmanship and the Art of drawing , when applied to the essential sphere of Art . I desire to elucidate the subject with a few brief thoughts . The range of penmanship consists in the acquisition of writing —or rather immitating to perfection a few sets of Alphabets , in a certain style . In other words , in committing to . memory , and writing a hundred or more , conventional signs . These signs , by virtue of a well established method , the student is drilled into and taught to repeat them , and learn to write them to perfection . Yea , even if he is blindfolded . Now consider the range for the . pen or the pencil of the Art student ; he is to be taught to represent bv outline , or with light

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1877

and shade , all that the visible Universe reflects into his eyes ! Can you count the characters ? Or enumerate his subjects ? No ; and a thousand times no . The range of subjects for the Artist is illimitable . The true and best method , to teach drawing , is so unconventional , so opposed to the typical that it should be as applicable to draw the human face as to represent a cloud ; to a tree , as easily suited , as to depict a stormy sea , or a wild beast in any landscape . The difference of penmanship , and the application of drawing in Art , is so essentially unlike , that for illustration : An object so common as a chair , may be represented by an Artist in a hundred different positions , in respect to lig ht and perspective , of which always every one would be too difficult for any ordinary good penman to draw correctly . Now if a chair offers such difficulty , how would it be with an animal , or the human figure ? But I will not enlarge upon this , and try to illustrate what ...

HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1877

HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY . HENRY M . BEARDSI . EY . LOUIS KOSSUTH . The spirit of every day breathes itself forth in the lives of its heroes . Every century has had its heroes , every land its demi-gods . Every principle of right or wrong has found a lodgement in some heart ; has found expression in spme life .. Ever } century in history has had its distinctive features ; and ever since the age of noble Greece some people or other has striven with wondrous zeal for liberty ; though on every century s page , freedom has printed its plea , yet ours has been emphatically a century of the growth of republican ideas . The heroes of our century have been men who lived not for themselves ; but for their native lands , for right , and wholesome liberty . Some of the heroes of ages past have been successful in their work , and history has given glory to their names ; but there are some from whose hearts the current of patriotism flows with the current of the blood , who nobly fought and failed ...

MAN'S RELIGION .-DRUIDISM . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1877

MANS RELIGION .-DRUIDISM . We love to look over the sombre stories of past ages and reflect upon their beauty as exhibited at the times of their predominance . History brings to us . many of these stones in the civilizations , religions and governments of man . As there seems to be in man a religious nature that must have a balancing element , it is both interesting arid instructive to examine into the systems he has invented to satisfy that nature . It seems that the Creator left man alone till he should feel and acknowledge the need of a religion before He undertook to suppl y him with the religion ofHis Son . This thirst for religion in man has been prolific in the creation of fancies , sometimes beautiful and attractive , sometimes viscious and barbarous . We wish to notice in this article very briefl y the characteristic points of the Druidical system of religion of many of the tribes occupying the north-west of Europe . The first of its history is given to us by the Romans dur...

EDUCATIONAL [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1877

EDUCATIONAL EMERY KAYES . THE HONOR SYSTEM . This conntry can boast of its numerous schools and colleges . Portions are blighted , however , by the votes of men who have no just or true idea of the worth of education , and are left without schools , as in the South , on the borders and in many counties , as the noted Posey district of Indiana . The schools that we have are as varied in character as is the difference of belief and quality existing among our people . Where intelligence already is , there will be found schools of excellent character , because only the intellig-ent or those who have learned to acknowledge the value of intelligence , will ever support a school as it shonld be . Where the members of a community are ignorant , the young men are kept ignorant , because their fathers think their experience and natural smartness to be all that , a youth need aspire toThe varied characters of our schools will afford a stimulus to those of less excellence , while those ranking ...

AMERICAN PUBLIC EDUCATION . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1877

AMERICAN PUBLIC EDUCATION . It is safe , at least , to make the proposition that public schools are a curse to all the youth whom they unfit for their proper place in the world . It is the favorite theory of teachers that every man can make himself anything that he really chooses to make . They resort to this theory to rouse the ambition of their more sluggish pupils , and thus get more study out of them . I have known entire schools instructed to aim at the highest places in society , and the most exalted offices of life . I have known enthusiastic old fools who made it their principal business to go from school to school and talk such stuff to the pupils as would tend to unfit every one of humble circumstances and slender possibilities for the life that lay before him . The fact is persistently ignored in many of these schools , established emphatically for the education of the people , that the majority of the places in this world are subordinate and low places . Every boy and gi...

EDITORIAL . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1877

EDITORIAL . After heartily shaking hands with the preceding editor and hearing his God speed , we felt some degree of assurance ; but as we take up the pen and hear his retreating footsteps our heart bubbles low with extreme trepidation . It is hard for inexperience to stand by the side of familiarity even in the publishing of a college journal , but there are certain guide posts and fingerboards which keep the beginner from losing his way entirely though his progress may be somewhat slow . We feel this to be our condition to some extent , but hope soon to become accustomed to the unpadded stool and devote our selves undivided to pelting our unsuspecting friends with elegant literature . This month the ILLINI is somewhat changed from its usual form We have arranged the reading matter into several departments hoping this will be as pleasant a change to our readers as it is to the editors . It is the fault of many college journals to have too much literary mat- f : er occupying their ...
