WHY COURTING IS CALLED SPARKING [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1880
WHY COURTING IS CALLED SPARKING BUD HIGGINS was a country boy , who seldom went to town , But spent instead , his leisure time in courting Susan Brown . They lived upon Potato creek , where blooms the cabbage rosy , Mid pumpkin vales and hoop-poled hills in celebrated Posey . To tell the truth , a better boy than Bud was rarely seen , But then , because—I don t know why—the town folks called him green . He was as tall—well , let me see—not quite as old Goliah , But towered amid his fellow-men a verdant , rural spire . He was no slender , sand-hill crane—no width , but all in length—But weighed two ten ( 210 ) when seventeen , and was a man of strength . His hair was just as fine and white as webs the spider weaves ; His ears hung down like saddle skirts or withered cabbage leaves . His feet—if I should tell their size my statement youd abuse , But my veracity Ill stake that Bud wore number twos ( 2 s ) . Dont deem this false , nor any of my premises dispute , But understand me , for...
THE BEGINNING AND END . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1880
THE BEGINNING AND END . IF A FAIR BEGINNING were enough to save us , this world would have a very different aspect , and the lives of most men would tell a very different story . Almost every man means at the outset to do well—at least to fare well—yet most lives have a thread of disappointment running through them ; while many who started with bright hopes come to a most disastrous end . One great cause of the contrast between the beginning and the end undoubtedly lies in the human will ; and he who resolves upon some worthy enterprise often gives it up from weariness , the motive force being spent and no new impulse given . In this case the proposed end is not reached , because the purpose itself first came to an end . Yet if we think to explain the strange falling off of the end from the beginning wholly in this way we make a great mistake , and leave out of sight the most important factor in the result . The law that guides every movement of man is deeper far than his intention ...
ORIGINALITY . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1880
ORIGINALITY . OUR CLASSICAL professor is in the habit of alluding to Emerson s saying that PlatoVwritings contain all the original thought the world has ever known . This startling and , at first thought , very unlikely assertion seems far more reasonable when one has studied to some extent the philosophical works of Plato and Cicero 5 and the reference to ancient thought and beliefs in Xenophon s Memorabilia , and Horace s Satires and Epistles . It is , at any rate , rather amusing to find in the essays and contributions to the ILLINI ( though not of very recent date ) of some of our students ambitious to appear as original and free thinkers , the very fallacies recounted and refuted by Socrates and Cicero . It reminds one of Mark Twain s indignant protest to the Egyptian guide who was exhibiting the mummies to Mark and his friends . They were not to be imposed upon by those stale corpses . If you have a nice fresh corpse , says Mark , you might bring him out . It is not necessaril...
THE AQUARIUM . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1880
THE AQUARIUM . TO THP : STUDENT of natural history who wishes to se and know for himself , the wonders of the deep , the aquarium is indispensable . Not many years ago little was known of aquatic life , except by a few of the leading naturalists , and ordinary students of nature had to take everything for granted ; but by means of this simple contrivance all who wish may not only avail themselves of the privilege of extending their knowledge , but ad to their homes one of the most attractive and beautiful of ornaments . It is indeed surprising that so many wilfully turn aside from that which can afford so much enjoyment . As a means toward educating ourselves in this direction the aquarium must take the first rank . If it wer necessary to go through that wash-day-like splashing and pouring of water , it would certainly be il worth the pains ; but by a little study of nature , we ar able to discover a proces so beautiful that we ar at once delighted , to say nothing of what may follo...
ODDS AND ENDS [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1880
ODDS AND ENDS A great deal has been said of late among our western colleges , especially have we noticed it among our sister colleges of Illinois , concerning a proposed series ot baseball tournaments , in which our students shall participate . In our western colleges the students have very little opportunity to engage in the more fashionable and popular sport of boating , and a certain class of them seem to desire to substitute for it that of baseball . Of late years these matters have been worked up to such a degree that it seems next to impossible for colleges to be in operation , even for a short time , without being drawn into these inter-collegiate tournaments . Thus far , our western colleges have been comparatively free from the plague , but it now threatens to attack us also . Of course the matter has its hearty supporters in all colleges , but we never could look upon it as being just the right way for college students to spend their time , to go off for days at a time to ...
ANTICPATION . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1880
ANTICPATION . Oft in the class when stern professors fright me , My thoughts fly far away , Where shady groves invite me To pleasures rare , awaiting there , When this dull term is over—The oaks cool shade , a pleasant glade With fields of perfumed clover . YP SEAY . ¦¦ -
EDITORIAL [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1880
EDITORIAL The students in the American colleges often think that they are wronged by rules made by the faculty or by civil authorties of the town in which their college is situated . The last three or four years have been years of rebellion among college students . West Point , Princeton , Amherst , Michigan University , the 1 . 1 . U . and many others have all had their time of trouble . In some cases these rebellions have been justifiable , but military troubles , class quarrels , or petty wars between students and citizens , all sink into insignificance when compared with the difficulties and even dangers that the Russian students are meeting to-day . There royal power seems to wish to destroy the most sacred rights , and to close the doors of the universities to the poor . The following , taken from the Globe Democrat , will give some idea of the evils that have fallen upon the Russian student : Many of the students in Russian universities are poor and earn enough to pay their e...

EXCHANGES [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1880
EXCHANGES We hope our readers will bear with us a moment , while we give some fatherly counsel to that exchange idiot of the Niagara Index . Now , we are a new exchange man ourselves , so we dont know how long he has been in this pitiable condition ; but if something is not done , and that immediately , for this soft-headed , pump-kin-brained lunatic , he will soon be in such a condition of mind that no asylum in America could take him as an inmate , without ruining henceforth and forever the reputation of the establishment . Seminary of our Lady of Angels ! Hypocritical indeed ! Devils always roll their pills in sugar before putting them on the market ; but we can smell them through sugar and all , so we are saved the trouble of testing and the chagrin of deceit . We really are surprised that an institution which writes Rev . before the names of its students should allow such a soreheaded , hypocritical blackguard to be tolerated in its neighborhood . An editor who is so dwarfed in...
