"WORK AHEAD . " [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1878

WORK AHEAD . * ^ MB *^^ WORDS fraught with meaning , even to the careHP ess ODserver i have a significance which can but startle . They express a truth that the live man , and the considerate woman are not slow to perceive . This day with its countless activities heralds them to the multitudes , to the people of all nations , to the world at large . The past with its histories true , and those of fiction ; with its generations that have toiled up the steep of life , that have scattered along the pathway to be trodden by the feet of following generations , flowers gathered in their toilsome wanderings , that have dropped pearls of truth where careful eyes would not fail to see them , and that have taught the lesson of toil and final recompense ; has impressed us with the fact that it has been the battle field of toil and work increasjng : and as we float on the same stream of time that has born the sail of these generations gone , it is plain that there is work ahead for us . For the...

CASTLE BUILDING . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1878

CASTLE BUILDING . ^ IUH E ALL BUILD CASTLES . It is in our nature as young ^ ilfl § ir people . The traveler in a strange land , who has heard of the beauties which it contains , can not help thinking , as he climbs the mountain side-, of the flood of sensations others have felt , as from the summit the landscape burst upon their view ; and feels assured that these will soon be his own . So to the young , life is all in the future . There are in the pages of history , stories of lives divinely led . The possible , that has been won , seems easy to the youthful mind . So the future—a field yet unexplored , the what-is-yet-ro-be—is rich with materials for castle building . If one of us were to weave a beautiful fabric and had before us endless varieties of materials from which to choose , we would first in fancy weave the various colors , and then with our most beautiful vision as a pattern , strive to realize our task . This castle building is not life ; and a life that is filled wit...

INDUSTRY- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1878

INDUSTRY- ^ liStlA N MUST HAV OKUPATION or be miserabl . Toil is ? ? £ ®| p tne P rice of sleep and appetit , of health and enjoyment . The very neessity which overcomes our natural sloth is a blessing . The whol world dos not contain a brier which could have been spared . We ar happier with the sterility— which we can overcome by industry , than we could hav been with spontaneous plenty and unbounded profusion . The body and the mind ar improved by the toil that fatigues them . The toil is a thousand times rewarded by the pleasures which it bestows . Its enjoyments are peculiar . No wealth can purchase them , no indolence can taste them . They flow only from the exertions which they repay . A . C . J .

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

SCIENCE AND ART . REMOVAL OF THE HELL-GATE ROCKS . •^ fSIfN LOOKING over the achievements of modern engineering , ? ft |! lf we cannot but note the advancement made in this art in the last quarter-century . Twenty-five years ago such accomplishments as bridging the Mississippi river at St . Louis , the construction of East river bridge and the jetties at the mouth of the Mississippi river , would have been considered an impossibility by the engineers of that day ; but it has been demonstrated by such men as James B . Eads and others , within the past ten or fifteen years , that such structures are not beyond the power of man . Among the many achievements of the present day , perhaps none can surpass that of General Newton , in the removal of the obstacles at the entrance of New York harbor which has since proven such a benefit to navigators entering the harbor . The great structure impeding the ship travel between the Atlantic ocean and New York harbor via Long Island Sound , was lo...

GOLD LEAF . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1878

GOLD LEAF . l 41 tti N YOUR LIBRARY , or upon your centre table , there are ? | fl | s perhaps , many volumes with embossed covers , stamped and lettered in gold with edges finished in gilt . You have handled and opened them , time and time again , without paying particular attention to their out sides , more than to notice that they were smooth , rough , light or dark , as the case may have been . The presence of the gold , bright and attractive , led you perhaps to pass your finger over it , stick your nails into it to see bow thick it was , smell of it to see if it was not brass . Half convinced that it was not gold , you then wondered how it could have been placed there in so thin a sheet , have thought of gold leaf , have believed that it could have been printed semehow upon the covers , but how to get the edges gilded , puzzled you and so you have given it up . In certain districts , the fact that a student has graduated from an University , fixes the idea in the minds of the ...

EDUCATIONAL . REFORM SPELLING . •^ jlljH TAT MEESERABLE English lankwedge , who spells ^ % Wm one ting ant speakss him as one utter . How many a discouraged foreigner has thus mourned after an hour s passage-at-arms with his English tutor ! How many an unfortunate English child , even , born to this sad inheritance , has wished that his father owned a pleasant homestead on the • shores of Lake Tchad , or kept restaurant and ice-house on Mt . Kanchinginga , far removed from the malign influence of spelling books and readers ! But it is not alone foreigners and school-children who have tired , and complain thus of tome of the nonsensical whims of our vigorous English . It has been said—or if it hasn t , it might have been—that Custom gives to even Folly , Wisdom s gown . Such is the case here : from precedent , and perhaps the reverence due old age , we have come to regard all the laws and caprices of our language ; all its outrageous pronunciations and barbarous mode . of spelling , ...

EDUCATION . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1878

EDUCATION . - ^ WlHAT CONSTITUTES an education ? Verily this is one • lllli ° * tne unso ved problems ; a solution of which , that would apply in all cases , would be as difficult as to define the dividing line between the light and shade in some of our most exquisite paintings . Shall our youth be taught simpl y that which they will practice when they become men ; or would a liberal education , tending to no special pursuit , be more beneficial ? A careful inspection of the courses of study laid down by our best educational institutions in this country would lead one to believe in the latter . Though , while the weighty studies are those bearing directly upon , and indispensable to , a chosen profession ; yet are there interspersed throughout the years more or fewer of those branches which are directly connected with that particular course , and so indispensable to a man of the world . No doubt it is best that it should be so , for a course consisting entirely of mathematics , theo...

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

HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY . DAVID HUME . * < 4 HiN THE EARLY P art of the l 8 th century 5 »» the < % of ? HP Edinburg , stood a humble looking mansion on a grassy slope that extended down to the edge of the calmly flowing river . The scene is one that the artist loves to contemplate , and from which he gathers higher and more accurate ideas of the beauties of nature . From the surrounding heights , one can obtain an extended view of the adjacent country ; or , wandering along the banks of the river , listen to the music of its waters , and watch the trim boats gliding smoothly over its surface . Here in the month of April , 1 7 11 , was born David , son of Joseph Hume . His father having died while he , David , was quite young , the education of the son devolved entirely on the mother who , it is said , bestowed no little attention on his early training . He entered the Edinburg University before he was fifteen years old , and made rapid progress in his studies . ...

I sailed from New York on theSth ult . by the S . S . City of Berlin , of the Ininan Line , and had a very pleasant voyage , landing at Liverpool on Monday , nine days after . I escaped sea-sickness entirely , for which I have reason to feel very glad , for a great many of the passengers were quite sick , and they showed that it was not at all pleasant . We were in Liveroool only a very few hours , but I managed to visit St . Georges Hall . It is a much finer looking building than I had supposed it to be from illustrations in Fersrusson ct als . I did not like the inside as well as I did the outside . I also passed by some very fine buildings in a sort of neoGreek style , that I supposed were the Public buildings . I liked them very much . We , that is the Gregory s and myself , arrived in London tha...
