LITERARY AND SCIENTIFIC . THE BULLS OF BASHAN . $ g ||| j ! J | ITH trepidation * WHP » And c ° nsternation t ? ^ fll ? I often think of the Bashan Bull ; With scenes of his ire And spirit of fire The scroll of my memory is written full . I ve seen bully cattle In peace and in battle , I ve seen their mad dash , like a wave on the rock , But Ill bet more cash on A taurus of Bashan , Than on a battalion of all other stock . In the arena I often have seen a Cumberland murder both charger and knight . An Alderney often Prepares for his coffin The rider in many a similar fight . The bull that s called Durham , Whenever they spur em , They fiercely charge on to the bold cavalier ; But the bulls of Bashan More madly dash on The irritant flag and the treacherous spear . Ah ! well I remember One day in September , A great Amphitheater was crowded full , To see an old gallant , Of chivalric talent , Meet in the arena a wild Bashan bull . That chivalric hero Had lowered to zero The thermodyna...

COMPULSORY EDUCATION . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1878

COMPULSORY EDUCATION . ^ lljHE SUBJECT Compulsory Education has lately been atS ^ p tracting considerable attention , but not more than it deserves . Nor so much when we consider the importance of the subject in its relation to the general welfare of our country and of society . Our fathers appreciating the necessity of general intelligence in a democratic state , after building their rude cabins , built school houses of a similar kind and quality . The improvement in the school houses has kept pace with the improvement of the country . The rude structures of the past have given place to the school houses of the present , which are among the finest adornina our cities and villages . Our fathers sought to plant knowledge in this land , and their children have been careful to cultivate it , because both knew that a nation without knowledge could be neither free nor prosperous . Prussia sixty years ago was a petty kingdom , subject more or less to the will of stronger states ; but Prus...

COINING SILVER MONEY . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1878

COINING SILVER MONEY . fQftHffHE LATE silver bill has shown its influence already on the ^• llp metallic money of the country . The new dollar piece , the immediate offspring of the silver bill , has been seen and the novelty is wearing away . It is called the dollar of the fathers , but no one could recognize it by sight , for the dress is entirely changed . It , however , retains the 412 ^ grains of silver which was the weight of the old dollar . The way in which silver is made into money is an interesting process , as is also the process of printing bank-notes or greenbacks by the government . The bank-note paper is made especially for use as money , and is , of itself , very difficult to counterfeit . In making it , a fibrous substance is mixed with it , so that a bank note cannot be split and each half pasted on a bad bill which has been split in the same way , making two counterfeit bills with one half of each good . If any part of a bill is counterfeit , the whole is condemne...

VIEWS AND VISION . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1878

VIEWS AND VISION . ^| l | OW beautiful this view ! What an enchanting scene ! And ^ tilit other exclamations , too numerous to mention , were uttered by a few enthusiastic friends who paid me a visit . We were standing at my window , which commanded a view of the city of Washington , the Potomac river and Mount Vernon . I was pleased with the unconcealed delight of my visitors , 5 s in their admiration they went on : Oh ! how rich is the foliage of these grand Catalpas and Linden trees , and that lovely cluster of Maples , and there , yonder group of luxuriant Oaks and Chestnut trees , glowing in the hues of the setting sun ! At this time the day was fast ending , and Hyperion s fiery chariot shed its flaming lustre profusely over the the magnificent panorama of Washington . Simultaneously , the dews of night were weaving their mysterious veil over the splendid scene , and the shadows , as they grew longer , deepened in the softest hues of purple , and gradually the last kisses of t...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1878

l 4 illl T A RECENT distribution of prizes at the Sheffield School * $ WM of Art , Mr . Barry , the President of the Roval Insitute of British Architects , made a criticism which it would be well to repeat often , for the present at least , wherever there are schools of drawing of any serious purpose . He spoke with surprise and regret of the very small number of pupils in the school , a large one , who attended the class for the study of the human figure . This study , he said , was not only the highest branch of art , but by far the most useful , and the knowledge of it would do more than anything to keep alive and vig- : rous the other branches of drawing and modelling . As an instance he mentioned the effect of it among the French as s ^ een in the broad , decisive and vigorous way in which they handled ornamentation of all sorts , —we should add , in the refinement and 2 race of their work . The school in Glasgow is one of the . old school of art in England , having been founde...

HISTORICAL AND EDUCATIONAL . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1878

HISTORICAL AND EDUCATIONAL . WILLARD CUTTING FLAGG . ^ S | Y THE death of Hon . W . C . Flagg Illinois agriculture lost flill * ts most widely known representative ; the cause of education for the industrial class , one of its wisest and most effective friends . The recital of dates and recapitulation of the works done by such a man gives but a faint idea of his real life . But such a recital may be the best attainable means of securing even a poor conception of the life . Mr . Flagg was born Sept . 16 , 1829 , in Madison Co . III ., on the farm vyhich was his home until his death . His parents were natives of Vermont and among the early settlers of Madison county . Preparing himself by attendance at the country school in the neighbor-, hood , and afterwards , by availing himself of the winter s respite from farm work to secure training at a high school in St . Louis , he entered Yale college as a freshman in 1850 , graduating in 1854 with high honors , and having maintained a good ...

STEPHEN GIRARD . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1878

STEPHEN GIRARD . i 4 || f | S SOMETIMES in the barren desert , from the midst of some ^ SlffM green oasis , there gushes forth a cooling stream , so , ofttimes , from the heart of one who seems devoid of human feeling , there issues noble deeds of charity . As we stand upon the roof of the main building of Girard College , in Philadelphia , and look below upon the four other massive marble buildings ; upon the smooth , shady , flowery lawn ; upon the city—standing above all around , save the distant tower of the Centennial Building—we naturally turn our thoughts to the founder of this far-famed school . Surely it must have been one of Philadelp hia s most beloved citizens that gave to her this unequaled school , where six hundred of her poor boys find a home and education . But no , it is the gift of that friendless , close , half-blind old man , who , in his quaint old clothing , walked , at his awkward gait , for more than fifty years , the streeets of their city . Or if he rode ,...

OUR READING . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1878

OUR READING . ¦ ^ M BIFE IS SHORT . The average human existence is onl y if ^ thirty-five years . When fro m this is taken the time that is necessarily passed in sleep , helpless infancy and ignorant childhood , or employed in providing ; for human want and necessities , or wasted in many ways unavoidable to all , we find that the average man has only twelve years to accumulate and utilize knowledge , and a great part of this must be taken at odd times through life . How necessary then that every one who desires to be intelligent should early learn to utilize the various sources from which knowledge may be gained . The most universal and valuable source of information is that gained from books and papers , by reading . In this day of newspapers , cheap books and public ^ libraries every one can find enough to read . Too tew , however , avail themselves of these advantages , and those who do often fail to reap the benefits they ought , from not knowing how to read intelligently and p...

EXCHANGES . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1878

EXCHANGES . ay | SKFTER A LONG interval the Packer Quarterly comes again . As the TpSsP year is drawing to a close the girls are growing sentimental in the con- »• %# * templation of a departure from old scenes . We find for the first time the University Quarterly upon our table . It hails from New York University . We are sorry we did not receive the January number so that we could read all : he prize essay on Political Parties in America . The part that is given in this number , though a prize essay , has no profound study in it , but the writer has a most happy faculty of narrative , a thing that is difficult to acquire . He gives a full history in an easy flow of words , and one will unconsciously follow him through , thinking of the acts recorded , and utterly oblivious to the recorder himself . In many of the writings of students the writer is known better than his thoughts , but . in case of this essayist , he has wisely kept himself from being noticed . The Certainties and M...
