SCIENCE AND ART . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 January 1878
SCIENCE AND ART . MARY LAKNED , CAVE DWELLINGS . In the world of learning the present day is one of unusual activity . Investigation is the word . Whether studying the law of natural forces , searching for new knowledge of the animal kingdom , or in discussing the great political or social questions the desire is to reach a correct conclusion , to know the facts . Nor is it the case that all effort is expended in old fields | but new subjects present themselves leading thought into new channels . The human family has always claimed attention , and discovery is constantly calling study in new direction to find new facts relating to man and his progress . The historian collects from the records of na tions facts concerning their development and gives them to the world . He deals with recorded fact and beyond this he does not go . Of prehistoric man we must learn through other sources . Archeology here finds a large field to explore . Some good results have rewarded the searches alread...
PRIZE ESSAY ON FLOWER CULTURE . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 January 1878
PRIZE ESSAY ON FLOWER CULTURE . BY CI-IAS . I . HAYES , FLORIST OF THE I . I . U ., CHAMPAIGN , ILLINOIS . [ Awarded First Prize by Western Farmer . ] —Concluded . This branch of floriculture needs all the encouragement we can give it , on account of its use and value to us as a people , in moulding our tastes , and shaping our likes to those things which are ennobling in themselves . While out door gardening makes our hearts glad in summer months , when Nature is clothed in her brightest raiments , indoor gardening comes to us in a time when the outside is dark and gloomy . The few plants we may have in our windows will do more for cheerfullness and temper than the delicacies of the table , or costly raiment . Every woman would like to have a few plants for her house , a little green and occasionally a bud or blossom to cheer her long and laborious hours of domestic duties . No one objects to plants , as such . Then why do not all have them ? What stands in the way ? Is it the cost...
ACTION OF PLANTS- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 January 1878
ACTION OF PLANTS- Perhaps the most surprising observation of quite recent times in matters pertaining to natural history is that reported in the London Royal Botanical Society , by Mr . Francis Darwin , son of the renowned Charles Darwin . It has been conclusively shown during the last four years that the glandular hairs of the common Sunden ( Drosera rotundifolia ) and other plants do absorb nitrogenous matters as the nitrogenous portions of captured insects . The observation of Mr . Darwin here referred to shows still more strongly the close resemblance between the active masses in vegetable cells and the lower microscopic animals often found . The common Teasel ( Dipsacus silvestris ) often found in England , and in this country , a specimen of which now hangs on the wall in the University botanical laboratory room ; has opposite leaves attached together , coming up so that a kind of cup is formed around the stem . These cups become filled with rain-water in which insects are dro...
HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 January 1878
HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY . HENRY M . BEARDSLEY . ROBERT E . LEE . Robert Edward Lee , the leader of the confederate army during the late war , was a man who , notwithstanding the cause which he espoused , deserves to be and is honored by men of all parties . In his public life he espoused one and only one cause which we , as Northerners , condemn as unjust and unbecoming to one born and reared upon the free soil of America ; but which he defended with a clear conscience , believing that in so doing , he followed the path to which duty called him . The remainder of his public services , which were numerous , were of such a nature as to merit for him the highest honors , and his private life was without a stain . His lineage has been traced back to the Normans , one Lancelot Lee , his most ancient ancestor of which we have positive knowledge , having accompanied William the Conqueror to England in 1066 . The next prominent member of which we hear in the Lee family is Lionel Lee , who acc...
EDUCATIONAL . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 January 1878
EDUCATIONAL . EMERY KAYES . TEACHINGMR . EDITOR : AS many of your students are teaching or intending to do so , a few words from an old student and a teacher will perhaps be of interest to some of the readers of the ILLINI . I have had considerable experience with , and have made many inquiries concerning the success of teachers from the 1 . 1 . U . A portion of the knowledge thus gained I will g ive to the readers of the ILLINI . In the first p lace permit me to say that in some parts of this county there has grown up a prejudice more or less bitter against students of the university as teachers . There are two or three reasons for this feeling . We think it has been caused first by the ill-concealed dislike , and unfair treatment of students by the ex . County Supt . A second cause is the jealousy of native teachers who imagine they are being supplanted by strangers . The third and the only real cause for dissatisfaction or objection to students as teachers is the course pursued b...
PRIZES FOR LITERARY WORK . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 January 1878
PRIZES FOR LITERARY WORK . Man will never work without a cause . Wherever found , in savage or civilized state this is universally true . The incentive comes in various forms . To one man it is one thing and to another it is something else . The vital wants of food , clothing , and shelter , compel us to activity in some field of labor , and forms the basis of mans greatest industries . The inducements to labor will vary with the individual , but there is always something necessitating this exertion . As we go from the common to the higher industries p / life , the same is true . If it be literary work there must still be some incentive or it will not be done . The prize system takes its rise from the common schools , and has its culmination in the hig her fields of intellectual labor . Prizes offered to beginners may often be productive of beneficial results . The child does not see the value of an education . It is not suppose d to appreciate its worth , and to seek its reward in ...
STATE UNIVERSITIES VS . DENOMINATION -AL . COLLEGES . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 January 1878
STATE UNIVERSITIES VS . DENOMINATIONAL . COLLEGES . Public attention has been somewhat attracted of late by discussions concerning the State Universities , and grave doubts have been expressed by some as to the right of the State to tax its citizens at all for the purpose of furnishing hig her instrction . On the other hand , now that such schools have become an established fact , large buildings provided , good endowments secured and a fair share of public favor , the attempt with some seems to be to dwarf all other instutions into academies and high schools whose work shall be to prepare scholars for this one great university . A grand , overshadowing , National University as proposed in the Presidents message , is in full accordance with these views . The university system of Germany is cited as the complete realization of such plans . But national differences alone would be a sufficient argument againstthe Geaman svstem , if the field were not already so fully occu pied . Such w...
EDITORIAL [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 January 1878
EDITORIAL OUR NEW YEAR . —Though hard studies bother us and harder examinations scare us , it is not always so . There are times when studies and examinations , rocks and crystals , mortars and solvents , equations and loci , conjugations and terminations , thumbtacks and pencils vanish from the mind like a fading sunbeam which smooths its hair , and sweetly folding itself up , lies down to pleasant dreams . If that is not a good simile it is because we havn t seen a sunbeam for so long we have forgotten how it acts . Vacation over , the students come back with pleasant faces and p leasanter words . In the different classes the changes wrought by Time , as he slips another cog and begins with t again , are somewhat similar , but there are many modifications . There seems to be a twinkle in the Freshman s eye as he thinks of three studies laid up high and dry out of the thirty six to be worked out . He seems to have lost that unduly excitable disposition which before caused him to do...

EXCHANGES . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 January 1878
EXCHANGES . THE VITJETTE from Evanston comes to us in its first issue this month . It is a pleasant and readable paper , and we wish it success . It has an article on how to run a college paper which has many good points if one will take time to read it through . But we have to dig for diamonds dont we boys ? The STUDENT S J OURNAL for December claims attention for its first article . What can we know of God . The article is full of good thoughts , though in the composition , it has perhaps too many incidental expressions . Though the primary facts wdiich conciousness gives are not explainable , they are none the less true . What knowledge of God we arrive at through reason , can claim , if the reasoning is correct , an equal footing with that from the Bible . The COLLEGE RAMBLER , Vol . I , No . I , lies before us . College Journalism is spreading and we are glad of it . The RAMBLER has our God speed and we hope to see it fully represent the merits of the institution whence it come...
