CHARACTER . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1879
CHARACTER . C HARACTER ! what is it ? a good name—a public reputation—in other words , the value set upon a man by public esteem , his friends , society and history . The kinds of character are many . The pen can not paint , nor can words tell all of them ; but the world is made up of characters . They are as numerous as the living beings . Look within every face for it , look throughout all human nature , look within one s self , look anywhere between the covers of the Bible to find human nature and character . A good character is an accomplishment desired and hoped for by every one ; but attained by few . Not attained in a moment , it cannot he buckled on like armor to shield one in his weakness when desired . No matter what situation or place in the ranks of honor we may wish , nor how badly we need it , nor how capable we are in ability ; we are not worthy of it , if we have not the right decision of character . Parental training is the secret of good character ; and a good char...
THE ARMY AND AGGRESSIVE POWER OF ENGLAND . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1879
THE ARMY AND AGGRESSIVE POWER OF ENGLAND . GREAT BRITIAN has , on account ot her insular location and powerful navy , long vaunted herself as the Ruler of the Waves . Her power seems to be fast decreasing , principally , as will be attempted to be shown , on account of her conservatism . A century ago she stood at the head of the military powers of Europe , now she has fallen to the fifth or sixth place . The English army numbers , including Colonial forces ana the Reserve , only 228 , 000 men . Besides this there is the Militia , consisting of about 120 , 000 men , and the Volunteers numbering 193 , 000 men—making a total available military force of only 541 , 000 men . The army proper is recruited on the plan of voluntary enlistment , with large bounties in time of war . The term of service is twelve years . Reenlistment to twenty one years-entitles the soldier to a life pension . The Reserve is composed of soldiers who , after serving three years , are permitted to go into reserv...
WORK . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1879
WORK . DOOMED to toil ! Sometimes the weary arms are folded , and the tired brain puis up the plea for rest . Yes , the mills of the gods grind slowly and many a mortal at the wheel sighs for rest . Yet labor is not a curse . The words spoken to fallen man in Eden were not of a curse that should blight his days and bring him only pain ; but they were the words of promise . They gave the means for winning back the lost estate . They gave the means for making the world an Eden better than the old , for developing the human heart and soul . It was an idea of barbarous ages that labor was disgraceful . Nature works . The roar of the waterfall , the rush of the torrent , the rumbling of the rock-bound ocean , the thundering of heaven s batteries , all are voicings of this fact . The silent force in nature that through the years lifts the sapling into the oak , the force that urges on the stars through endless space , silently speak it . Work ! As we speak the word , we seem to hear the s...
EDITORIAL . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1879
EDITORIAL . OUK SANCTUM . —Strangers come from the nei ghboring cities , and even from neighboring states to visit our university . They ar introduct to the beauties of the art gallery , to the wel selected library , to the laboratory , the stock barns and other places of interest ; but few ever visit the ILLINI sanctum . We wil venture to say that not two dozen students ar acquainted with the mysteries thereof . That we should be ignorant of what is transpiring around us , while we delv into the history of Greece and Rome , startles us with new force . Probably some description of our sanctum wil infuse into our readers the desire to make us a visit at no distant date . In one corner of the room is piled the paper for the numbers yet to be printed . In the opposite corner ar piled in as beautiful irregularity as the fleecy clouds at evening , the numbers of the past years , stil on hand . On the wall at our right hangs an elegant crayon drawing of one of our ex-editors ; which one ...

THE COLLEGE WORLD . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1879
THE COLLEGE WORLD . Mr . Cook has been delivering a series of lectures at Oberlin . The Seniors of Syracuse University , it is said will have no commencement speakers , but will invite an orator from abroad . There are eleven Brazilian students at Syracuse . There is something yet in advance of boarding-house rail pie . It is called cotton pie . We have not yet been able to determine its nature . A restriction upon the freedom of the press—The faculty of the New York University have decided that all periodicals published by the students shall be subject tj the scrutiny of the president Michigan University : The elective system which has been adopted will practically do away with regular classes , as each student may take his degree whenever he has completed his course . One of the seniors has alread y finished and begun to study for his profession . There are no longer Freshmen , Sophomores—but First Years , Second Years etc . —Oberlin Review .

WOMAN'S RIGHTS ; THEIROPPOSITION , DEVELOPMENT AND EFFECTS . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1879
WOMANS RIGHTS ; THEIROPPOSITION , DEVELOPMENT AND EFFECTS . THE QUESTION of womans rights has probably been agitated ever since the human race has been in existence ; but the specific nature and limits of those rig hts has varied with the institutions of the countries and the intelligence of the people . It has been the testimony of history almost without exception that as man has increast in intelligence he has proportionately entertained higher views of woman s privileges . Go back with me into the dim vistas of the records of man , into the times when there were but few educated people ; or perchance take the savage and barbarous people of to-day and you wil find that they hav regarded woman as an inferior being , they treat her as a slave . They recognize no right but that of brutal might . Man there considers mere strength to be a proof of his superiority ; and inconsequence of this he claims the right to hold her as property and to make her do the drudgery . With the savage , ...
EXCHANGES . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1879
EXCHANGES . Judging from the Pastime the University of Kansas has gone wild over base ball . At any rate a majority of its locals relate to this delightful game , and the first page is given to an extended report of a match game between the Freshmen and Sophomores . Knowing little of the game ourselves , we are scarcely competent to judge , but suppose the article was well written , and yet—is it just in keeping with the character of a college journal to give so much room , and that in such a conspicuous place , to a game of base ball ? This is followed by an article which concludes that a majority of the students of the University of Kansas are grievously afflicted with the big head . Poor University of Kansas !! The exchange department always brings to our mind a prim little old lady in cap and apron who sits and rocks and knits and looks placidly over her glasses at the group of children playing at her feet and advises and corrects them . It has such a way of looking down at its ...
UNIVERSITY NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1879

Smith . Capt J . H . Sawyer , 78 , gladdened us with his presenc two or three weeks ago . He glanced at one of the cases in the museum and smiled . The Senate confirmed M . M .

PERSONALS . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1879
PERSONALS . It has been so long since we hav had a personal column that we ar going to revive it , just to see how it seems . And in order that there shal be something new about it , we propose to be practical , and deal with home topics . Buckingham has a new coat . Will Butler is among the wounded . C . J . Bills bets his pile on Co . B . Clarence vows that he will be even with Fletcher yet . Coddington vows that he will leave footprints behind him on the sands of time . Seeing how successfully our foreman has supplied the needy with clothing , our devil proposes to start a shoe factory . Several of those seniors ar thinking seriously , now that hot wether has come , about cutting off those mustaches . The story that Coburn wil invent a flying machine , is without foundation . He is far enough up in the world alredy . The report that the senior clas under Prof . Pickard did not know the position of a cow s ears with relation to its horns , is basely false . Rado , having made a ca...
