FLORENCE . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1879
FLORENCE . FLORENTIA , the city of flowers . Flowers everywhere , in doors and out , in the public gardens , in the market place , in mosaic , in fresco , and in arabesque—flowers that might have decked the brow of Flora or tempted Persephone to the very Plutonic regions . Florence , the capital of Tuscany , lies , in a mountain basin , like a statuette in the midst of a vast fountain . She is supposed to have derived her name from her situation on a flowery plain . She is built on both sides of the Arno , in about the same latitude as Portland , Maine . Early historians call her the noble city , the daughter of Rome . The melancholy spirit of the Middle Ages seems only to have g lided over her . She is an elegant Pagan , who , as soon as she thought , declared herself , at first timidly , then openly , elegant and pagan . If the history of a city is recorded in her monuments , and if her monuments are the crystallization of the thought and religions sentiment , the poesy and herois...
EXCHANGES . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1879
EXCHANGES . We were sorry that our exchange column was otherwise occupiedin our last number , so that we could not notice those upon our table . Our intention is , however , to . make this department of our magazine a permanent one , and also as interesting as it is possible for us to make it . The University Magazine , from its very appearance , claims our attention first . It shows neat and tasty workmanship . As we looked over matter contained in the Magazine , we were horrified to find that the editors were either standing on their heads or doing the giant , or words to that cflcct . Editorials , contributions , locals , personals , everything athletic . Dont do it any more . If you keep on in that way , you will make us believe pretty soon that the University of Pennsyl vania is nothing more than a common gymnasium . You seem to be agitated on the subject of class histories . Take our advice just this once and give up the reading of the histories on Class Day and you will all b...

PRINCE MAURICE OF NASSAU . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1879
PRINCE MAURICE OF NASSAU . TO-DAY , when the principles of peace and the knowledge of attendant good are thoroughly instilled into the minds of all , we place a less value upon military genius and give less praise to those whom the world has called its greatest men ; nay , while in the past warriors have been praised for the great results their ambition has attained , we feel like preserving their names only to curse them for the desolation they have brought upon mankind . An Alexander is pardoned only because of remote benefits following in his track ; an Alaric is looked upon only as the scourge of an offended Deity ; and a Napoleon is tolerated only because of the resplendency of his genius . But the present honors , and the future ever will honor , those who , not for ambition or aggrandizement , but for the love of country , have offered themselves , time , talents and life , to save her from peril or to fall in endeavoring to raise her . We measure the hero by the good he has ...
FLORENCE . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1879
FLORENCE . ( Concluded from last month , ) ON THE same place , and near the Cathedral , is the campanile or bell tower . Charles V . on first seeing it exclaimed , The Florentines should enclose this tower in a glass case , or only exhibit it on fete days . With its aerial grace , enhanced by a rich veneering of variegated marbles , it is as solid and strong as it appears light and beautiful . Facing the Cathedral is the Baptistry , with its gates of Paradise , flanked by shattered columns of porphyry . Upon these magnificent bronze doors Ghiberti was engaged forty years . One of these represents the principal events in the life of the Savior , the other the most striking events of the Old Testament . The third door was made by Pisano , one hundred years before , the completion of which was celebrated by festivities throughout Tuscany . The walls of the Baptistry are more than eleven hundred years old , and are supposed to have been the walls of a heathen temple . They are now faced...
PRACTICAL SCIENCE . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1879
PRACTICAL SCIENCE . „ LTHOUGH the study of the natural sciences has been intro- £ \_ duced into the schools of this state as well as man } others , yet the majority of the people have no real knowledge of the practical value of them ; that is , they do not see how the industries have been benefitted and to what extent they are dependent upon the application of this knowledge . Education in the past was regarded as an accomplishment . Whoever acquired one was disgraced if he worked with his hands or soiled his clothes . The laborers in the industrial departments were looked down upon as beneath the notice of college educated . Education had no relation to industry . Why , then , should they who expected to follow manual labor be interested in it ? These old ideas still remain in the minds of the people , and they are slow to understand and appreciate the use of education because of them . They cannot put their hands on a single object of common use and interest that does not illustra...
THE ORIGIN OF GREEK PHILOSOPHY AND ROMAN LITERATURE . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1879
THE ORIGIN OF GREEK PHILOSOPHY AND ROMAN LITERATURE . THE HISTORY of Greek Philosophy begins with Thales of Miletus , who was born about 640 B . C . and died in 550 B . C . at the age of 90 . He was the founder of the Ionic school of philosophy , and to him was traced the first beginning of Geometry and Philosophy . He was also the first to predict an eclipse , and corrected the Calender , giving to tjge year 3 65 days , assigning 30 days to a month except the 12 th to which he added five to complete the solar year . The second school was founded afterwards and named Eleatic from Era a Greek colony . The third school was established by Zeno , a native of Citium . The writers who did the most in raising up Roman literature were : —Ennius who was born at Rudiae , a town of Calabria , and lived from B . C . 239 to B . C . 169 . In his early youth he went to Sardinia and served in the Calabrian levies from which in the year 216 B . C . he followed Titus Manlius to the war which he waged...
COMPULSORY EDUCATION . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1879
COMPULSORY EDUCATION . THIS IS NOW one of the great questions in American politics . Though comparatively a new one to the western states , it is a question that , early in our colonial history , attracted the attention of the New England colonies . Massachusetts and Connecticut had compulsory educational laws in 1650 , only a few years after the landing of the Pilgrim Fathers . These were the first laws of this kind known in history ; and thus these infant colonies in the wilds of the New World , became the leaders in a movement that has been followed by the most highly civilized and enlightened nations the world has ever seen . Men are beginning to recognize the importance of thorough education among the common people . It is now known that ignorance is the mother of crime , and education begets peace and prosperity . The highest degree of happiness will always be found among a people with cultured minds . The fact that education is especially necessary in a government like ours h...
SKETCHES FROM CALIFORNIA . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1879
SKETCHES FROM CALIFORNIA . NUMBER ONE . I live and bear The aspect and form of breathing men . THERE IS scarce a ruffle of excitement in the state just now . Everything is as quiet as a Massachusetts household on a winter s evening when the ten youngest have been spanked to bed . As the Californians are a hot-headed , hot-blooded , fast-living people who are liable at any time to go off half-cocked I will not predict how long this state of affairs will exist . There is no telling what will come to pass within the next fortnight . Some one may strike a bonanza . Kearney and the sand lot rabble may call for a division of property , the Chinese may capture the State government or there may come to light , which is the most likely , a score or more of first-class scandals ; for What men call gallantry and gods adultery Is much more common where the climate s sultry . At the recent election the people of the State expressed their opinion upon Chinese immigration . They spoke decidedly . ...
EDITORIAL . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1879
EDITORIAL . UNIFORM THE PREPS . —It is well known that in accordance with the action of the Trustees the preparatory students will not be required to wear uniforms . It is , however , hoped by the students that the matter will be reconsidered at the next meeting of the Board , and that , as heretofore , the Preps , will be required to uniform at the beginning of the Winter term . The dissatisfaction which has existed in the University concerning tnis has been so slight that we wonder at the Board taking any notice of it whatever . There are , no doubt , some very good reasons why the preparatory students should not be uniformed ; but , to our mind , they do not , in the least , stand in the way of some better reasons why they should be . It is quite evident that , in order to keep up the spirit of competition among our companies , which is the very life of our drill , all must be placed on the same footing . Those who drill without uniforms do it greatly to a disadvantage , and cann...

MILITARY CATECHISM . HEAVY MALICIOUS OSSIFER . — Awdah , Humps ! Sloot ! Now , then . What is the military system in American colleges ? TIMID PREP . — Please , sir , it is a system devised by a wise and humane government , at the earnest request of anxious students , to give militia officers somebody to practice on . H . M .
