COALS OF ILLINOIS . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 June 1878
COALS OF ILLINOIS . GRADUATING THESIS , BY WILLIAM D . RUDY , CLASS OF 187 S . ILLINOIS INDUSTRIAL UNIVERSITY . FOR THE DEGREE OF B . S . —SCHOOL OF CHEMISTRY . ^^ ;^ a | NDERLYIN G the broad prairies of our State are stored at ^§ Hf &gt; various depths , sufficient quantities of fossil fuel to supply the various and constantly increasing wants of our population for ages to come . , The coal area of the State of Illinois may be safely estimated , in round numbers , at 35 , 000 square miles , an area three times as large as that of Pennsylvania or Ohio , and constituting one-fifth of the productive coal fields of the United States , not including what is termed the lignite basins of the Western Territories . The coal measures attain an aggregate thickness of fourteen hundred feer and may be divided into upper and lower measures , the latter of which , as a rule , contain the better coal . Providence has thus fully compensated for the deficiency of timber in Illinois , which w...

HISTORICAL AND EDUCATIONAL [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 June 1878
HISTORICAL AND EDUCATIONAL THE DEAD LANGUAGES AS EDUCATORS . •^ gmjpHIS IS a progressive age . On every hand we find the world i Up r s n S to a higher sphere . Improvement marks every step of its history . Knowledge is becoming more generally diffused , and by this knowledge people are sifting out the events , the teachings and the beliefs of the past , treasuring up those which are applicable to the present age and casting aside those that belong to a dead past . Of all the discoveries of man and of all the theories advanced on innumerable subjects we can find to-day only a very few which have not been changed , improved , or rejected and it is perfectly natural and right that it should be so , for no one mind is powerful enough , no one life long enough to learn all that the world contains or all that it is capable of producing , and in this case what is true of one mind or of one life is equally true of a hundred or of a thousand . All the preceding generations have been able , ...
PETRARCA [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 June 1878
PETRARCA ^ | || RANCESCO PETRARCA , one of the most famous poets of ? # ;!} wnom Italy boasts , was born at Arezzo , July 20 , 1304 . His father believing that law was the only royal road to fame and honor , sent him abroad for the purpose of preparing him for the bar . The youth , however , soon became disgusted with the laborious and plodding work which was necessary in order to prepare him for his profession , abandoned the study of the law , and substituted something more congenial to his tastes and which , instead of being a drudgery , was to him a pleasure , and served to satisfy the eager cravings of his soul . He obtained some copies of Cicero and Virgil and instead of continuing to plod on through his voluminous law books , now spent his days and nights in the perusal and contemplation of his cherished literary treasures . He had enjoyed himself but a short time , with his new friends when his father paid him a flying visit and , finding his law books thrown aside while his...

We were not mad ; nor did ask our right hand assistance to lead in a divine benediction ; but we smole a grim smile in spite of the days of agony spent in working up that oration . All that labor must go to the winds . We resigned to the decree of the fates . After a struggle at recovery , we opened that gem of the w r est . We began to devour . Nowi it has been said by some one (?) , that some things in the mouth are sweet as honey , but when they get elsewhere are bitter . But the Besom is not one of them . It : is bitter all the way through . We first read of a complaint against the legislature for treating the university so insignificantly . It gives the statements of the amoun...

No towering trees aroundjthee stand , No histry as at Oxford ^ old , Where e en the air on every hand Seems overflowed with thoughts of gold .

No nation s heart has called to thee In troubled times , to give thy youth—With thoughts to make the nation free Their warm heart-blood to shed for truth . No mystic mottoes strangely wrought , Adorn th...
WANDERINGS OF A BREEZE .-AN ALLEGORY . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 October 1878
WANDERINGS OF A BREEZE .-AN ALLEGORY . ld 8 B WAS J UST AT TWILIGHT ; and I sat at my study winIrPft dow . All day long the fiery sun had poured out upon the parched earth his torrents of heat . Tired of study , I had pushed away my books and sat gazing at the few light fleecy clouds that gathered in the horizon and wiping the perspiration from my brow . The clouds were tinged with a glow of golden light , as though the gates of paradise were open . I could almost feel the pleasure of the shade beneath the evergreen trees , where there is never too much heat or cold , when the leaves of the tree beside me rustled , as though they were whispering some good news to one another , and I felt upon my brow the gentle touch of the evening breeze . As though by magic the sultry day and the struggles of my study hours were all forgotten , and closing my eyes I leaned back in my chair to listen to the murmuring leaves and dream . As the cooling breeze tossed my hair about I thought I heard a ...
