LITERARY DEPARTMENT , [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 February 1878

LITERARY DEPARTMENT , MANFORD SAVAGE . A POEM . What s the Delta Tau Delta ? my wife asked me quickly , And took all the wind from my newly spread sails . It s a college society , dear , I said , meekly—A kind of fraternal affair , whose avails —- Fiddlesticks I quoth the madam , with towring vexation That withered my gizzard like lightning ablaze . I want no avails , but a plain explanation Of your grips and your passwords , your doings and ways ! Ah ! the evil I feared had at last overtook me ; The Eve of my Eden had read youi invite . And the tone of her musical larynx so shook me That my intellects balked and were sadly bedight ; I smiled a sad slimmer , and tried to look placid ; I coughed a long cough : I be my nose ; I felt like a fish in an ocean of acid , And shivered with dread from my crown to my toes . What s the Delta Tau Delta ? came measured and steady Once more to my ears , and I dared not defer ; The bravest would think it high time to get ready , If he caught such ...

DEGREES . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 February 1878

DEGREES . The following report unanimously adopted at the late convention of Trustees and Presidents of State Universities , held at Columbus , Ohio , will be of interest to many of our students . The committee on Degrees respectfully report that , in their judgment , the practice of confering Degrees by institutions of learning , to mark the completion of specific courses of study , is so well established by usage and by the settled judgment of the great body of educators , that it would be a waste of effort at the present time to discuss its utilty . Academic Degrees , whether wisely or unwisely , have come to be regarded as appropriate rewards for and certificates of the accomplishment of prescribed courses of intellectual training and acquisition . Assuming , therefore , that degrees will be granted by literary institutions , and admitting their usefulness , the only practical questions for your committee to consider are , the kinds of degrees and the conditions on which they sh...

RELIGIOUS THEORIES . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 February 1878

RELIGIOUS THEORIES . To him who , in the possession of a refined intellectual taste , loves truth and the careful , earnest seareh therefor , nothing within the broad field of possibilities presents a more extensive , more varied or more noble theme for thought than human life , its relation to time and eternity and to superhuman or divine powers . We find ourselves endowed with intelligence and reason , existing in the form of human beings . The mind uaturally endeavors to know all concerning any obscure phenomenon . It constantly searches for the solution of this mighty , complicated problem of life . Seeing the intellectual powers developing in all directions and attaining such heights of perfection , man infers and believes that this earthly exist- ence cannot be the fullest extent of being . The arrival at this conclusion is materially aided by a strong desire that this should be the case . It is not a pleasant thought that when earthly or mortal life is lost all has ended , an...

ASTONISHING EFFECTS OF IMAGINATION . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 February 1878

ASTONISHING EFFECTS OF IMAGINATION . A strange case is that of Henry C . Ershman , living near the boundary of the county , near Sweetwood , who is the owner of considerable property . Up to within several weeks ago he was hale and hearty . Notwithstanding his abundance of the worlds goods , he generally wore one suit of clothes during the week and on sunday . Several weeks ago he was startled because he imagined that a very offensive odor either came from his ears or mouth or the pores of his skin . He was greatly alarmed , and imagined that he was sinking into galloping consumption , and . gradually decaying . He was unable to sleep , became haggard and emaciated , and even his friends began to imagine that his end was near at hand . He dressed himself regularly and was determined to keep on his teet . He went into the fields and woods determined to fight down his disease , but wherever he went the same dreadful stench and feeling came over him . Finally an old woodchopper met him...

SCIENCE AND ART [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 February 1878

SCIENCE AND ART MARY LARNED . ASSAYING . Since the days of 49 California has been the El Dorado of the West ; and considering the amount she annually adds to the world s wealth , the name is not inappropriate . At one time mining was the only industry , and notwithstanding the growing importance of agriculture and stock raising , it yet mnintains its supremacy . Gold was first found as the disintegrating forces of nature left it—in a metalic state , mixed with sand and gravel . When thus found but little knowledge or skill was required to obtain the gold . The auriferous sand or gravel when shaken in a pan with water , allows the gold to sink to the bottom , when the sand and gravel can be washed away . This is called panning . The same result is accomplished by sluicing . where a stream of water runs through a series of boxes , or sluices , on the bottoms of which are arranged slats or riffles , for catching the gold ; and into which the dirt is shovelled . At present these methods...

POTATOES . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 February 1878

POTATOES . Potatoes rank next in value to the cereals as a farinaceous food and during the 300 years they have been known to the civilized world , they have been steadily increasing in use among all classes until they have become a necessity alike to the rich and poor , and are served in every variety of style , from the dish of potatoes and butter-milk , which often forms the sole support of the Irishman , up to those served a la Saratoga . In treating this subject , we leave all questions of variety , soil , cultivation and market value to the producers . To the housekeeper and chemist who represent the consumers , the question of the composition and properties of the potato , rather than the number of bushels raised per acre , would be the paramount consideration . The relative alimentary value ot the different farinacous foods is a question of considerable importance in point of household economy , and deserves more careful study and thought than is usually given it . Potatoes f...

HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 February 1878

HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY HENRY M . BEARDSLEY . A ROMACNE IN HISTORY . It is no new thing in history to see the banners of the cross and cresent flung to the breeze amid the deafening cris of battle . The struggle of to-day between these two symbols is but one more of those struggles that a thousand years have witnessed . We find worlds of romance in studying the history of the religion that offered to the world tribute , the Koran , or the sword . And nowhere is there shed around this warfare more of a romantic light , than in Spain , during those times we call the dark ages . In a little less than a century after the flight of Mohammed from the holy city Mecca , all Western Asia and the North of Africa had yielded to the arms of his followers ; and a bold band , used to conquest , with the blood of victory still upon their swords , had crossed the strait that separates Europe from Africa ; and ^ from the summit of the rocks of Gibralter , had looked over the hills and valleys of Spain...

A FEW WORDS ABOUT BEECHER . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 February 1878

A FEW WORDS ABOUT BEECHER . I can t tell you anything new about him . If I should state that he is a great divine and orator , you would say that I was assuming to instruct you by means of hear-say testimony , and you might call my statement superfluous . But if I should not , at least , say that our lecturer was born in Connecticut , that he once lived in Indiana , and that he now preaches in Plymouth Church ; if I should herein forget such important facts of his history as that he was once a classmate and messmate of the father of my classmate and messmate ; that he graduated at the same college as did our revered instructor in Darwinism , and examined the latter theologically before giving him his ( ethnological ?) credentials ; that there are more links missing between Henry Ward Beecher and some critics than between some human wiseacres and certain of the nether orders ( that the bridgeless gap between those hairy Esaus of a creeping age and certain pin-feathered Lucifers of th...

EDUCATIONAL . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 February 1878

EDUCATIONAL . EMERY KAYS . THE COMMON SCHOOLS . This is a question which should receive the honest attention of every man or woman who has the best interests of themselves or o £ humanity at heart . First , in reference to the teachers employed . The teachers of our land hold the destiny of our nation to a great extent , in their hands . They are the molds that give form and color to the youthful minds which at some future day , will hold the reins of government . The human mind in youth is like a tender tree planted in our garden , which , if properly trained and cared for while young , will soon become a straight and beautiful tree , and one which no future storms will be capable of making crooked . One which while it lives will be looked upon as an ornament to any place . If however , the youthful tree is allowed to take care of itself , or if improperly cared for , it often becomes crooked and unsightly , and one which if allowed to grow up no amount of work in future years will...

THE SCIENCE OF PHYSICAL EDUCATION . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 February 1878

THE SCIENCE OF PHYSICAL EDUCATION . To be strong is to be secure . Upon our security depends our happiness . The Science of Physical Education underlies all arts and all sciences . This is a broad assertion ; for to say what science is fundamental would be practically impossible ; but upon reflection it would seem that that science which most concerns our natures would be most important . The physical art was carried to quite a high degree by the ancients . We should understand the science ; for science in modern days , is found in some form , to underlie every branch of learning . Just as we need logic to be ready and accurate reasoners , so do we need the science of physical development to be expert in the application of the art . Teaching is an art , so also is the development of the physical powers an art , but the knowledge of the means by which we may most advantageously improve this art is the science of physical education . A certain amount of exercise is necessary . But to ...

EDITORIAL . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 February 1878

EDITORIAL . THE MILITARY . —Soon after the beginning of this term the active labor of the military department passed from Col . Snyder s hands to Major Dinwiddie of the U . S . A . The Colonel , however , retains control of the battalion while Major Dinwiddie is to instruct the military class and control the battalion in actual service . Through the influence of our new commander , all the old muskets have been replaced by fine breech-loaders . With these is a quantity of amunition to be used in target practice . Company A , which claims to be the best of the battalion (!) , expects to do some shooting soon , though perhaps it would be to the interest of the townspeople about here that they wouldnt . Altogether , the military of the university is to assume a more serious phase than previous . We are glad to see all the red tape of West Point gradually coming in and we doubt not but that all the students do , though is may be a little more burdensome to all . It has even reached the ...

EXCHANGES- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 February 1878

EXCHANGES- It affords us a great deal of pleasure to spend a few hours among our exchanges . One learns lessons from their very looks . But to read and examine them is a genuine benefit . Some have articles good and instructive , and others weak and insipid , while some , and by far the largest class , have a mixture of both . We take it that perfection never was attained in college journalism , nor will it be except against decided opposition from ignorance and prejudice which impiovement in every other thing has had to overcome . We see many things in our exchanges to commend , and wish that more of our readers had them to examine , and we also see things worthy of criticism which might be-remedied by some attention . It is our object in noticing our exchanges at all , not to make a brilliant sweep here and there , directing our shot in an opportune moment , but to give our approbation or disapprobation to the papers that are sent us , and such suggestions as to us seem best for o...
