A VENETIAN LEGEND OF AMERICAN DISCOVERY . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 January 1879
A VENETIAN LEGEND OF AMERICAN DISCOVERY . i 4 | ii F WHAT RACE , or from what point of the old world the ? ? fp @ Western Hemisphere received its first inhabitants must ever remain a mystery ; but certain it is that the European scholars had long been acquainted with a legend to the effect that beyond the western ocean lay a rich and fruitful land . A Venetian legend asserts that about the year 13 S 0 , Nicholo Zeno fitted out a vessel in which he intended to visit England ; but by a terrible tempest he was driven out of his course , and wrecked upon an island called Friseland , supposed to be one of the Terroe or Faroe group , where he remained some years , being joined there by his brother , Antonio Zeno . Antonio afterwards wrote home to a younger brother , Carlo , who remained at Venice , an account of a tale brought to Friseland by a certain fisherman , who alleged that twenty-six years previous he had sailed from Friseland on a fishing excursion , but was driven by a mighty te...
FIFTEEN MINUTES IN A BAGGING FACTORY . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 January 1879
FIFTEEN MINUTES IN A BAGGING FACTORY . •^ jf llOUBTLES many of us hav been in woolen or cotton cloth ? s | gsSi manufactories and watched with interest the transformation of T saw . . • the white fleece of wool , or the snowy tufts of cotton , into fabrics for the use of man throughout the land , or perhaps throughout the civilized world : and as we hav stood in admiration of the surrounding machines , which seemed almost possessed with intelligence as they kept up their busy hum , drowning the voices of the operatives whose only duty was to se that the hungry mouths of the machines wer kept ful , we could not , if of a thoughtful turn of mind , but go back in the history of the arts and carefully trace up the history of this one branch until we arrived at that one branch which we now studied . The thousands of spindles , the scores of op erativs , the number of looms all set us to thinking of mans progres in history , and under such an influence there is no power that could force u...
IRRIGATION IN COLORADO . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 January 1879
IRRIGATION IN COLORADO . ^ ppjERHAPS it may be of interest to show at first , something about sSlf irrigation in general : where it is conducted , how long it has been practiced , and some of its notable examples . In the tropical countries of Mexico , Egypt , as well as other parts of Africa , Arabia , Persia , India , and , contrary to the general idea that irrigation is found only in tropical countries , in the temperate countries of Peru , the United States , Great Britain , France , Spain and Italy , we find irrigation , the first application of science to agriculture , employed to-day . Irrigation was used by the ancient Romans , Egyptians , Assyrians , Babylonians and Chinese . In proof of its antiquity , we find in Deut . xi , 10 , and Gen . xii , 10 , references to the use of irrigation . The valley of March in Yemen in Arabia , was irrigated by water from a reservoir made by a dam two miles long and one hundred and twenty-five feet high , constructed probably before the ti...
SCIENCE AND BELIEF . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 January 1879
SCIENCE AND BELIEF . -af ^ UHlT HAS ever been the tendency of man to form an opinion on S ^ iplf whatsoever he observes in nature or is supposed to observe , and } \ q § S A L this opinion , whether correct or false , constitutes his belief . We generally find this belief governed either by popular , local or traditional pre- judices , which have produced great results in the progress of the human family . It seems ridiculous to us now in looking over the world s history and noticing what great effect belief has had upon the ancient and even modern nation , to see millions and millions of lives sacrificed to defend a belief which would be to us simply nonsensical . And is it not horrible when we consider the amount of human blood that has been spilled and truth lost , simply to gratify the fanciful and seemingly p leasing conceptions of narrow-minded , bigoted and ignorant peoples and individuals ? It is needless to search the history of the past for evidence , when the majority of ...
MARSHAL LANNES . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 January 1879
MARSHAL LANNES . «^| € KHE YEAR 176 9 was an eventful one , for it ushered into being ? ?^ p Napoleon , Wellington , Ney , Lannes and many other of the master-spirits which afterward swayed Europe . Jean Laiine * , not the least of these , was born in a small village of Normandy , France . His parents were very poor , and in consequence , could give him no education except what could be acquired at the parish schools , then under the direction of the priests . At the age of seventeen he was bound out as an apptentice to a dyer , but soon tiring of this occupation , he ran away and enlisted in a regiment of volunteers . By his address and activity he raised himself to the command of a battalion . From this he was discharged in 1 795 on the recommendation of a committee of the convention . Determined not thus to be thrown out of employment , Lannes followed Napoleon into Italy , and there , side by side with Murat , Nassena and Victor , began his brilliant career . At Milesimo he firs...
WHAT SHALL BE TAUGHT IN OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS ? [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 January 1879
WHAT SHALL BE TAUGHT IN OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS ? fSwili * ^ QUESTION , as yet , has never been satisfactoril y an- ^ Sg swered . It is a difficult task to furnish a course which shall be satisfactory and meet all possible cases . Even after years of experience the leadidg educators differ widel y in their choice of studies . What follows in this article is a theory advanced by one of our leading men in the educational affah-s of the State . The substance of it applies more properly to the intermediate schools than to the hi gh schools of our cities . Prof . Hall , late candidate for Superintendent of Public Instruction in this State , in an address to the people , made some suggestions as to changes in the studies of public schools . Though it is somewhat ot a departure from the old , yet there is something in it that we would do weli to reflect upon . He states , that the greater part of our pupils leave school , unable to read intelligibly the best parts of a newspaper , ignorant of t...
THE SCHOOL OF THE FINE ARTS , PARIS . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 January 1879
THE SCHOOL OF THE FINE ARTS , PARIS . ^ ffjjJT MAY NOT BE uninteresting to the read e rs of the ILLINI * SfjSSJ - to hear some facts in regard to the Ecole des Beaux Arts , a school which has had an existence of two hundred and thirty years , and now ranks the whole world in the department of artistic education . The superiority of the French art of to-day , is due in a large measure to the careful , thorough training which this school affords . In the very beginning of its career , which , upon the suggestion of Colbert , Louis XIV added this to the other monuments of his spirit for improvement , the Ecole des Beaux Arts selects one particular line ot training for its pupils , adopting the Latin and Greek art as standard , and ever since has this been the teaching of the school . It may be said that the pupils lose a great deal by so entirely neglecting the riches of medeasval art , but in return the school does an excellent thing for the French artists ; it teaches them to know on...

The first floor is occupied by the Mechanical and Architectural laboratories of the schools of Mechanical Engineering and of Architecture-.

The engine is 16 nominal horse-power , of the automatic , or variable cut-off pattern . The line of iron shafting is 72 feet long . . The practice in these laboratories is equivalent , in effect , to a s-chool in Mechanical Art , Design and Construction . The instruction begins with the use of the tools in the production of the elementary forms met with in construction , especial attention being given to the shape and best condition of cutting tools and the proper manipulation in the sharpening and use of the same . This practice represents a number of shops such as the pattern worker s , the blacksmith s , thefiter s , th...
