ARKANSAS AS IT IS . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1877

ARKANSAS AS IT IS . Where ignorence is bliss tis folly to be wise . The ignorence manifest concerning Arkansas is surprising , and it is anything but bliss , for it imagines a region of almost impassable swamps , inhabited by people worse than savages , partaking something of the habits of cannibals . Knowledge presents more pleasing features , and as it is a comparatively unknown state , a little description may not be amiss . In extent of territory , this state is superior to many of more advancement , and it is said there are more miles of navigable water within its limits , than in any other state of the union . The natural advantages of Arkansas are very great , and the unenviable reputation it has had , has prevented many from enjoying them . But the state is fast becoming settled by an industrious class of people , and much of its former bad name is effaced . The climate of Arkansas is simply delightful ! The winters are much milder than ours , and the summers , though tediou...

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

SCIENCE AND- ART . MARY LARNED . TEETH THAT NEVER BITE . Who ever realized that every gentleman , and indeed every lady is bewitched to get a set of several hundred of just such teeth , and they want them to be either gold or nickle , set in a golden box , and kept by a golden chain . Who ever realized that so beautiful a thing as a watch could be simply a little machine , made to execute in a mechanical manner what Father Time has always been doing in his own old fashioned way . Though a machine it is one of the most perfectly made , every tooth , even , being formed with strict regard to science . Indeed it must be , or the delicate little movement would be blocked . But in larger gearing , alas for the comfort of those who dwell in jts neighborhood , the teeth are too often by guess ; which , in this case , are obliged to go , because of so much driving power behind them . But when they go , what a racket ! Now it is the duty of our mechanical schools to set this matter ri ght am...

PRIZE ESSAY ON FLOWER CULTURE . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1877

PRIZE ESSAY ON FLOWER CULTURE . BY CHAES . I . HAYS , FLORIST OF THE I . I . U ., CHAMPAIGN , ILLINOIS . [ Awarded First Prize by Western Farmer . } The writer of the following article believing that the -greatest good to the greatest number should be the rule of action with all , addresses the amateurs only , since they constitute by far the largest class of those persons who are interested or likely to be benefited by this paper . In this time of practicality the people want facts , not theories , and so far does this dominant idea prevail , that there is much danger of a skimming process likely to attend the dissemination of a knowledge of floriculture , because so much ground is gone over in such few words . The writer , has , therefore , confined his article to such plants and operations as may be so fully described and explained , as to be eminently practical for all who attempt them . For the sake of convenience I divide floriculture into indoor and outdoor gardening . Beginn...

THE PAST . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1877

THE PAST . The angel who rolls from the closed door The sealing stone aside ; The healer ; for hearts that are rent and sore ; The light that flashes the black sea o er ; The prophet who points to the other shore , — They are here , to-night , by my side . And it matters little if lifes new bells . Sadly or gladly ring , — An under tone , in their clamor , tells Of a soft south wind that dies and swells In fragrant arches of pine-wood dells , Where , some day , the birds will sing , — Waion Gray , in National Repository

ANALYSIS OF CREAM OF TARTAR . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1877

ANALYSIS OF CREAM OF TARTAR . The practice of adulterating manufactured articles is very common . Indeed it is so prevalent among our manufacturers and dealers that we can scarcely find a single article that will bear the critical test of the chemist . Especially is this true with compounds i n which foreign substances are easily introduced , but are very difficult to detect . Among other very interesting analyses made at the chemical laboratory this term for the purpose of finding out the extent of adulteration in commercial drugs and articles of food , is the following series of analyses of commercial Cream of Tartar , by Mr . A . H . Moore : Samples . Cream Tartar Found . Impurities . / otal . No .

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

HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY HENRY M . BEARDSLEY . THE BATTLE OF GETTYSBURG . July ist , 2 nd , and 3 rd , 186 3 . These dates , though scarcely time enough has elapsed to make them historical , mark one of the most severe battles that has ever been fought on American soil . A conflict which is as fresh in the minds of America s heroes as if but yesterday the blood of Union and Confederate soldiers flowed from Cemetery Hill and stained the hallowed ground upon which a great part of the battle was fought . Every particular concerning this battle tended to make it a desperate one . The careful preparation of both sides ; the vigilance which each had over the other ; the almost equal armies ; the flower of commanders on either side ; all these were combined in the two armies . In the preparations for this battle both armies showed a bravery and fearlessness far from being contemptible , and with equal earnestness each tried to make Gettysburg its own ; one to keep it , the other to gain it . ...

EARLY LIFE OF WEBSTER . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1877

EARLY LIFE OF WEBSTER . The Boy is Father of the Man . Daniel Webster , the distinguished American statesman and orator , was born at Salisbury , New Hampshire , on the 18 th of January 1782 . His noble efforts of eloquence hi behalf of American constitutional law , gave him the well deserved epithet of Defender of the Constitution . His career is an example to American youth . His parents were poor , and he attained his distinction by his unaided energy , perseverance and talents . His father , Ebenezer Webster , was a soldier in two wars , serving as a member of a volunteer corps in the French war , which closed in 1763 , and afterwards employed his military experience , in the protracted struggle which secured the freedom of the United States of America . He was present at the battle of White Plains , and was distinguished as a popular and most effi cient commander . He was of athletic stature , and commanding appearance ; having been trained in that border school of hardship and...

EDUCATIONAL . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1877

EDUCATIONAL . EMERY KAYES . . CO-EDUCATION OF THE SEXES . We had supposed this vexed question settled once and forever , after anxious debate and years of experiment , but that it is . not , is evidently the case , for the board of the university of Wisconsin , are weighing the question , calling it still a doubtful experiment . A visiting committee in their report , comments on the apparent ill-health of the female students , and doubts the prudence of allowing ladies to take a university course with male students . A professor of the university combats this idea with vigor , and , although we have not read his article , we can say , Amen ! When the question of co-education first excited discussion , the principal point debated , was , whether female students were mentally capable of keeping up in classes with gentlemen . Arguments were not wanting on either side , but as the few women who had received the same advantages , had often left brother students behind , the wise lords of...

EDUCATION IN CHINA . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1877

EDUCATION IN CHINA . W T e Americansboast of our free schools . We are proud of systems of public instruction , proud of our colleges , our universities , our literature and our educators . This is right . Bnt , in our joy we are apt to forget that other peoples have educational systems as good as our ovvn , and of which they are equally proud . First among these in her educational system is China , yet we speak of our western immigrant as the Heathen Chinee . No nation has a greater reverence for literature than China . The Chinese worship books . They- will not destroy paper , lest written words mig ht be destroyed . Youth is venerated in proportion to its intellectual ability . Learning to them is all . It is the only road to lame . The learned youth , no matter how young , is a venerable father . He is respected above gray hairs . With such an instinctive love of knowledge , or religion of culture Chinese literature cannot help but be great . Their literature has been said to be...

UNIVERSITY DEGREES . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1877

UNIVERSITY DEGREES . When this University was chartered , it was determined by the managers of the movement that no degrees should be given to its graduates . This was not because its education was designed to be less expensive and valuable than that given at other American Universities , but from a feeling of dislike to the whole system of degrees , as a part of an old monkish system of education alread y effete and passing away . It was the aim to erect an institution which should have no superiors . in the breadth and richness of its scholarship , but which should rise above all the mummery of effete systems , and be thoroughly modern and progressive in its spirit and learning . Holding fast to all that was good in the great Past , it was designed to keep abreast with the still greater Present , and to help win the possible victories of a -rand Future . For the ten years of its history , therefore , its con - stantly swelling ranks of graduates have gone forth from the several co...

EDITORIAL [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1877

EDITORIAL College degrees . —In the educational . department of this issue of the ILLINI , something is said of university degrees and the action of our trustees in regard to them . University degrees have now , perhaps , as many abuses as uses ; and we hope that while the subject is before the people , that means may be taken to suppress the abuses . The custom of confering degrees is time honored . When an education , regardless of other conditions , was a passport iiito society , it became the duty ot the colleges to give to their graduates tokens of their graduation . It became customary , after different courses of study were established , to denote the courses pursued in the graduate s certificate . Soon there was a need to indicate the worth of the individual student when he left the university . This was formed in the confering of special degrees . Later , universities wishing to recognize the works of learned men in literature , science and theology , whom they had not grad...

EXCHANGES . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1877

EXCHANGES . Will the College Herald g ive us something more than personals and university notes ? The Western Journal of Education comes to our notice for the first time . We think it a valuable paper and a strong addition to the educational force of our state . The Tripod is discussing the plausibility of disconnecting itself from the Inter-collegiate Oratorical Association . The Tripod , ought to wait awhile . Maybe you can have the contest again , soon , and make up the amount you lost last year . The Reading Eagle has a poetic reporter who went to the police station to look at the the tramps and count , them . He gave the result fc his readers next day , thus : Not a lodger weak and weary , Or a drunkard bleak and beery , Not a tramp or vagrant dreary , Had a couch upon the floor ; For the station house was empty , Not a mortal there to tempt the long-tailed rats to play at sentry As they oft had played before . Said the turnkey , never more . As General Tchavythemosleinsheadoff...
