DIAMONDS . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 April 1879

DIAMONDS . THROUGH the history of every nation runs a thread of romance or superstition concerning these bits of stone . Their posession betokens the wealth and power of a nation or individual , while their loss has ever been held a fore-runner of decay . There is no decay to diamonds : they may be hidden or buried for ages , but the first ray of light that strikes upon them shows the form unharmed , the glory unmarred . Diamonds that were buried 2 , 000 years under the burning lava , and lay in darkness beneath the ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum or with the mouldering mummies in the tombs of Egypt for 3 , 000 years , now gleam with their original splendor . In the oldest literature , are found records of precious stones , and there are engraved gems which antedate even these . Ten or fifteen centuries before the Christian era , the Egyptians reached a degree of skill in cutting precious stones never yet surpassed . This spread into other lands . The Greeks , Phoenicians and other...

SAM HOUSTON . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 April 1879

SAM HOUSTON . VIRGINIA has been the mother of many great men . From the time when Freedom s battle cry first rang out in that glorious struggle for liberty and indepence , the Revolution , Virginia has been particularly distinguished by her sons . The mother of presidents , she is also the parent of statesmen and warriors . Among those born in this state , few deserve more praise than the subject of this sketch . General Sam Houston was born at Timber Creek Church , in Rockbridge county , seven miles east of Lexington , March 2 , 1 793 . His ancestors were of that noble band in Scotland who , with John Knox , fought for God and liberty . Driven from their native land , the } sought the new world just opening to the gaze of civilized man , and found a refuge from their persecutions . ¦ When Sam was but fourteen years old his father died . Left with the heavy burden of a numerous family , his mother determined to leave her home in the Old Dominion and find a new one in the forests of ...

ZULULAND . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 April 1879

ZULULAND . ZULULAND COMPRISES that portion of South Eastern Africa between Natal and Dalagoa Bay . It is bounded on the west by the Drackenburg mountains , on the east by the sea , on the south by the Tugela river , and on the north by the sea and Bechuana land . The Zulus , while they resemble the other negro tribes in some respects , are much more intellectual . They are a tall , athletic race , skilled from boyhood in all manly games and in every branch of savage warfare . They are trustworthy and faithful as servants , but war makes them demons incarnate . Their present king , Cetewayo , is an irresponsible despot , feared and hated by his people on account of his despotism ; but because of his military ability and personal courage he still retains his crown . The Zulu army consists of from fotry thousand to sixty thousand men . Every Zulu is obliged to pass a certain length of time in active military service . He enters the army at the age of fourteen , and , by royal decree , ...

THE SKEPTIC , A REFORMER . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 April 1879

THE SKEPTIC , A REFORMER . NOT MANY YEARS have passed since the skeptic was supDosed to be a man posessed of the devil ; a striking example of moral depravity for whom there was no salvation in this world , or hope in the next ; a desecrator of all that is holy , a destroyer of all that is good . With the general fairness of our times , let us throw aside these ancient prejudices , and look at him as he really is : an indispensible element of human progress , a reformer . So long has the skeptic been regarded as an object of detestation and horror , that even yet , there clings to the name an indefinable dread or aversion , which we cannot easily overcome . Always hated and despised , he has been punished by the lash , the gallows and the faggot , and yet he has always existed . This is , however , preeminently the age of skepticism . Everywhere we see men , without disguise , boldly proclaiming their doubts or their disbelief in the generally accepted opinions of the people—philoso...

THE CENTRALIA COAL MINE . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 April 1879

THE CENTRALIA COAL MINE . IN LOOKING over the coal fields of the United States , we find that Illinois has an important place in its coal producing areas since the coal area of Illinois is about one-fifth of the productive coal fields of the United States , not including what are called the lignite basins of the western territories . It extends from almost the extreme southern portion of the state as far north as the northern boundary of La Salle county , and is limited on the east by the state line and on the west by the Mississippi river , including an area of about 37 , 000 square miles , or nearly three-fourths of the entire area of the state . This is , without exception , the broadest coal area in the world . The coal lies in seven workable veins or strata of variable thickness , amounting , in all , to about twenty-five feet in thickness . These veins of coal crop out at the surface at some points in the state ; but at most places it has to be reached by shafts , varying in d...

UNIVERSITY EDUCATION . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 April 1879

UNIVERSITY EDUCATION . ^^ HE WRITER of an article on Education and Originality of Character , in the last ILLINI , after some very sensible remarks on daily recited lessons and the deleterious effect of the almost exclusive appeal to the memory in our public school work , closes with the sentence : The founding of our own university is a step in the right direction , only the step is not long enough . The above-mentioned writer promises to perhaps continue the subject at another time , but , in the meanwhile , let us hear from a plebian in the matter . We would write not as an iconoclast nor as a faultfinder ; but as an honest inquirer , and an upholder of the time-honored idea of a university . A unus fiopuli of a democratic college , we advance our opinions and interrogation marks to be answered , refuted or seconded as to any other it may seem hest . Our university has probably better museums , apparatus and appliances for instruction than any other institution in the west , with...

EXCHANGES . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 April 1879

EXCHANGES . Mim discovered us sitting in despair among the multitude 01 our exchanges , and taking pity upon us , she chose from the pile and criticised in this manner : The Tripod is before us with its editorial department as comprehensive as ever . With this number is begun a series of sketches of the lives of deceased professors of the Northwestern University that will doubtless be of great interest to its students and alumni . The Vidette is a very readable college paper , its local department , especially , being spicy and bright . The editorial department seemed a little out of sorts with the world , for some reason or other—three separate growls being counted in as many pages . The ILLINI very humbly thanks the Volinte for giving it its rank among college journals , but would add that it , too , pretends to be a paper for students , by students , tries to report eveiything of interest to those in college and to those interested in them , but who are far away , etc . etc .

THE COLLEGE WORLD . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 April 1879

THE COLLEGE WORLD . The freshmen of Columbia will row the Harvard freshmen an eight-oared race at New London , Connecticut , next summer . We read that the faculty of Dartmouth college has decided to give the students a weeks vacation in May or June , that they may engage in base ball contests with other colleges . This is the expression of an Evanston fresh : Tis sweet to court , but oh how bitter ! To court a girl and then not git er . The Vidette regards the present system of examinations a relic of the barbarous past . The Chicago glee club has begun a series of concerts in the neighboring towns , beginning with Joliet , April 4 , for the benefit of the University . It is proposed to found a college for young women at Oxford . Nearly five millions of dollars are spent by American students in Europe , for educational purposes . The University of Lubinges , among whose graduates are Kepler , Melancthon , Schelling , Hegel , Schiller and Uhland , celebrated this year its four hundr...

What if vulgar dust and dirt Their dull surfaces begrim ? Rudely fashioned from the earth , There s no beauteous light to dim . What if menial offices Are assigned them everywhere ? Clay is not a casket meet For a splendid jewel s care . What if rough and hasty hands Thrust them carelessly aside ? If they re scarred , it matters not , They were never things of pride . What if in the rush of life , They are broken all along ? Many others just the same , Can be purchased for a song . There are vases wondrous fair , All refined and purged from dross , Thro them streams the limpid light Without blemishment or loss . They are rare and costly things , Never two the selfsame mould ; Vulgar hands and uses mean Must not mar their beauty cold . * v * * * * Earthen vessels , unrefined , Every household has its store .

FORTUNE TELLING . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1879

FORTUNE TELLING . THE PRESENT generation is somewhat slow to believe in the power ascribed to gypsies and pagan sibyls , to discern with prophetic instinct , the joys or sorrows which the future may have in store . So skeptical are the people of the present time that even the mysterious manifestations of those recondite personages who would substantiate their doctrine by calling their witnesses from the narrow cell , seem to attract but few to accept their views . While our ancestors , being blindfolded and going down the cellar steps backwards , beheld their future companion in life , with us , the experiment under the most favorable conditions , makes only stars visible . The dregs of the teacup afford to many an unmarried , elderly iady the most innocent kind of amusement , as her vivid fancy traces the magic pictures , and translates them as passports at the gates of bliss —( where she has been waiting for a score of years . ) Notwithstanding our lack of faith as to all superhum...
