EXCHANGES . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1879
EXCHANGES . The University Quarterly shows itself to be far ahead of most of our exchanges . In the article , Is the Natural State of Man Lunacy ? While we always had some forebodings on this subject ( especially concerning exchange editors ) we have almost been forced to admit it in respect to all men , on account of the logic of the argument . What rhetoricians call unit } seems to be the principal characteristic of the article , for no minister ever stuck closer to his text than did the writer to the statement that let your theory be what it will you can find no difficulty in providing facts to prove it . The Educational Nevis-Gleaner comes to us rather cheaply and not very elegantly gotten up , but completely filled with matter interesting to every teacher and student . It sumew hat reverses the old adage , and puts the best on the inside . If we may be allowed to discriminate we must say that the Obcrlin Review is the best exchange we have . When we get it we are always sure of...
THE COLLEGE WORLD . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1879
THE COLLEGE WORLD . The Lambda Chapter of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity has raised $ 4 , 500 for the erection of a temple on the college grounds , Ann Arbor , Michigan . —Ex . The University of Notre Dame is arisen from her ashes , more beautiful than ever . —Ex . Siberia is soon to have its first university . It will find many of its students among those lately exiled from Russian schools . —Ex . The authorities at Rutherford College have inaugurated a rather unique , if not absurd , plan for obviating irregularity of attendance among the students . They have a rule which says that persons in the community who lose time out of school , except in case of protracted sickness , will be charged double tuition for such time . —Ex . Kentucky will certainly reap as she sows . She has two hundred thousand white and twenty-five thousand colored children who do not attend school . This constitutes nearly one half her school population . It is useless to disguise the fact that some of our sout...

PRINCE MAURICE OE NASSAU . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1879
PRINCE MAURICE OE NASSAU . I ^ O-DAY , when the principle- of peace and the knowledge of attendant good are thiirniighly instilled into tile 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 name- onlv to curse them for the desolation thev have brought upon mankind . An Alexander ipardoned onlv because , of remote benefits following in his track ; an Aluric is looked upon only a- tlie 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 , lime , talents and life , to save her from peril or to fall in endeavoring to raise her . We measure the hero by the g...

HISTORICAL ILLUSIONS . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 January 1880
HISTORICAL ILLUSIONS . IT IS SAID that when in 1751 a bill was introduced into the British Parliament for the reform of the calender by passing at once from the iSth of February to the 1 st of March , it met with fierce opposition , Lord Macclesfield , the President of the Royal Society , warmly advocated the bill ; and when three years afterward his son was a candidate for Parliament in Oxfordshire , one of the most vehement cries raised against him w « s— Give us back the eleven days we have been robbed of ! When Mr . Bradley , the mathematician , was dving of a lingering illness , the common people with one voice ascribed his sufferings to a judgement from Heaven for having taken part in that impious undertaking . Something like this is the feeling of many persons in regard to the havoc made with their idols by modern historical criticism . One of the most painful moments in the experience of a student is when , after having spent years in acquiring a knowledge of the past—in bui...
THOUGHTS CONCERNING BURKE'S ESSAY ON THE FRENCH REVOLUTION . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 January 1880
THOUGHTS CONCERNING BURKES ESSAY ON THE FRENCH REVOLUTION . tN THE YEAR 17 S 9 there began in France a struggle , the terror of which has never been equaled in any country . The French Revolution , extending over scarcely one decade has left a record of inhumanity , bloodshed and madness , such as no other period in the world s history has left us . Proscription lists were made with kings and queens at their heads . The entire state of affairs was such , compared with which the cruelty of Sulla and the barbarity of Marius were but mere acts of justice . The people were mad and none less than sovereigns could sale their anger . At this time there lived a man who has since been recognized as the greatest statesman and philanthropist of England , and of the world . Edmund . Burke , a man who always had at heart the interests of his country and of mankind , saw what would likely be the end of the then all-absorbing and all-controlling question—the French Revolution . His acute sensibili...
POWER OF THE MYSTERIOUS . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 January 1880
POWER OF THE MYSTERIOUS . THE MYSTERIOUS is that which is hidden from the understanding and implies a cause with which we are unacquainted . W T hen we sre a phenomenon we do not understantand , we infer a cause ; but as it is involved in mystery , the intellect is awakened and stimulated to investigation . We begin , as it were , in the dark without knowledge . Whatever is unknown arouses inquiry and asks a solution . The mysterious around and within us is the great quickening power which stimulates to our investigations after truth and knowledge . Madame De Stael puts these words into the mouth of one of her heroines who has just witnessed an eruption of Vesuvius : We are so familiarized with the works of Heaven that we scarcely notice them with any new sensation in our prosaic realms ; but the wonder which the universe ought to inspire is suddenly renewed at the sight of a miracle like this ; our whole being is agitated by its Makers power , from which our social connections have...
A POET'S CHALLENGE . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 January 1880
A POETS CHALLENGE . IN HIS Recollections of Keats recently published , Charles Cowden Clark gives the following interesting account of a poetical contest between Keats and Leigh Hunt : But the occasion that recurs to me with the liveliest interest was one evening when—some observations having been made upon the character , habits , and pleasant associations with that reverend denizen of the hearth , the cheerful little grasshopper of the firesde—Hunt proposed to Keats the challenge of writing then , there , and to time a sonnet On the Grasshopper and Cricket . No one was present but myself , and they accordingly set to . I , apart , with a book at the sofa could not avoid furtive glances every now and then at the emulants . I cannot say how long the trial lasted . I was not proposed umpire ; and had no stop watch for the occasion . The time , however , was short for such a performance , and Keats won as t » time . But the event of the after scrutiny was one of many such occurances w...
NECESSITY OF COLLEGE MAGAZINES . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 January 1880
NECESSITY OF COLLEGE MAGAZINES . THERE ARE many collegiates who believe that a magazine is an unnecessary appendage to a college , and that it might be done away with . They ask of what good is it and what good does it do ? This question seems to puzzle some , but we trust it can be answered . It is true that a magazine of this description ma } not have any marked influence of the majority on the students . The number of persons is small who read the long and laborious articles in the more solid part of the paper , smaller than it should be . Many take the magazine for the locals and witticisms which it contains and give not two straws for those articles which have cost the writers so much labor . This is very natural , for the majority of students , after having studied hard day in and day out on complex and worrying subjects , choose , when they have a few moments of leisure , to read something that is light and rebounding , which will cheer them up again . They may purpose to dig...
GUSTAVE DORE . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 January 1880
GUSTAVE DORE . THOSE OF US who chanced to venture within the sacred limits of the Faculty s Parlor last year could not fail to observe there a remarkable picture which with the clas-fotografs formed the principal ornament of the room . It is a dark , hevy-shaded engraving and striking both in subject and treatment . The scene is a vast amphitheatre—the Coliseum , I fancy—but the seats ar no longer filled with the beauty and the pride of Rome , all is shrouded under the black veil of night . But the subject is the Early Christian Martyrs , and upon the blood-stained arena we find the objects which giv the picture its painful yet pathetic power and interest . Groupt upon the sands as they fel , protecting one another to the last , lie calmly sleeping in deth , those who were counted worthy to suffer for His name , while among them sated with their cruel banquet , wander grim lions , here sniffng at a body , there tearing a garment , or crouching , overcome by the sleep of gluttony , b...

Walker , 79 , and Miss Florence Cushman . This wedding was a surprise to us all , although we rather thought that Mr . Walkers presence here for the past few weeks , meant something .

EDITORIAL [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 January 1880
EDITORIAL ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION . —The November number of the College Rambler discusses the propriety of forming an Inter-Collegiate base ball or athletic association , and we certainly can see no reason why this would not be a good thing . In our western colleges there is but little danger of paying too much attention to physical exercise . Some of the colleges are not provided with gymnasia ; and we , who are lucky enough to have a good one , dont seem to recognize its value . Our Faculty sees this , and they are making arrangements for a more general use of the gymnasium from this time . There seems to be some interest shown in the matter here and we hope that this interest will not die until we have an athletic association fully organized . We will look to Knox or Illinois College for ascheme for organization , and we can assure them that the ILLINI is warmly in favor of the movement . In the Dec . number of the Volante is displayed a bombastic medley of uncivil sentences , inten...
