UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 19 January 1881

The professors are reall y beginning to make us proud of them by their comparatively full and regular attendance at chapel so far this term . We are willing to say now that they didn t mean to stay away , but only did it through absentmindedncss . We have a Vague suspicion that some of them have been making new years resolutions something to this effect : I hereby resolve that I will not skip chapel with unbroken regularity , and furthermore I do resolve that I will come to chapel sometimes . Now we are going to look for such a resolution in the next professors hat we get a chance at , and if we find it there we are going to give him something handsome . To further help the good work along , we propose to give a chromo to the professor who is absent from chapel the least number of times between now and next commencement . Free for all and go as you please .

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 19 January 1881

There are but four members of the present senior class who do not belong to any of the literary societies . This is a good showing for a class which numbers nearly fifty members . We think that few of the former classes that have graduated could make as good a one in this respect . We take the fact of there being such ; i large number of society members among the seniors to be a sign that the mass of the students is beginning to sec more plainly than formerly the advantages to be derived from society membership anil the work which it imposes . There are few students who , understanding this , will not at some time during their course become connected with one or another of the societies . Of course the earlier in their college life they become society members the more they arc benefited by so doing ; though it is not so certain that the societies arc always more greatly benefited by the freshman becoming a member on his first advent ,- than if he had joined only after having become ...

A society of Indies at Ottawa , Illinois , has sent us parchment blanks with a request for our autograph , which , as that of a member of the Illinois press , they desire to appear in an album which they are preparing , with the intention of presenting to Mrs . President Hayes . This together with a satin hanging , will be presented to her as a testimonial of her high moral worth and courage in banishing the wine cup from the While House . Although we cannot hope that our name will occupy more fhan a very modest corner of an album which contains also the names of judges of the supreme court , congressmen , governors , and others high in power , we are still glad to be allowed thus IO testify of the admiration and high regard which we have for this noblest of presidents wives . The ladies of Ottawa are only worthily expressing for her the regard which also- lies at the hearts of silent thousands . The Springfield exhibit of students work which is now on view in the capitol building i...

Once more we are furnished with an elocutionist . Professor Feitshans has organized his classes and gone to work in a way which leaves little doubt but that he will make his teaching very successful . The students have long implored the higher powers to furnish them with a competent teacher who would give them elocutionary training , and now they have one . The art of good reading and speaking can scarcely be acquired without a long and careful drill under a finished master . The present opportunity for instruction is too good a one to be carelessly slighted . Under the existing arrangements , Professor Feitshans stays here only one term . The time can not be faraway when an instructor in elocution in this University will be permanently appointed .

In our issue of December i , A Lover of Base-ball asks those who feel an interest in our ball-players to aid in raising money to procure new uniforms in readiness for the spring campaign . This is a request which few . should hesitate to comply with . We students are proud of their past successes , whether we admit it or not , and expect them to win yet other victories , in the honors of which we propose to share . Then let us make them some substantial return for their labor and skill . We shall all heartily express our dissatisfaction if they do not engage in the intercollegiate tournament , to be held at Jacksonville next May , in connection with the Inter-State Oratorical Contest . Then , if they do go , as they certainly will if the rest of us do our duty , it rests with the unskillful ones , in large part , to see that they go properly uniformed . The work of raising the money cannot begin too soon . We suggest to the members of the base-ball association that they hold a meeti...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 19 January 1881

The trustees of the University at their last meeting granted a yearly appropriation of twenty-five dollars , to be used in paying the expenses of the students gov ernment . This act has placed the system , for the first time , on a sure financial basis . In our mind this has removed the last real objection from its way . Good officers are all that can now be asked , and these from the students •themselves . In bringing this matter of the government debt before the faculty and students , * during the early part of last term , we expressed the opinion that the professors should make good the deficit arising from the students administration of the college laws . We did this from looking at the matter in the light of strict justice . For the trustees had placed the governing power in the hands of the faculty , which had given this power into the hands of the students , not because it belonged there , but because it could be best used by them . Then the facultj should meet the resulting ...

The farmers institute which , as in former years , will be held at the University during the last week of this month , will without doubt bring many visitors from a distance to see the workings of our insti tution < is well as to attend the lectures . We make the suggestion to those who are expecting friends to visit them some time before commencement , that they try to get them to come during the time of this institute . Every department of the University will then be thrown open to strangers ; the cabinets , laboratories , art gallery , and library , will be easily accessible to all comers . To the faculty we suggest that at this time lessons be lightened , and considerable freedom be allowed to the students , even in recitation hours , so that they may entertain friends or attend lectures as they choose . We believe that generally shortter lessons are given at these times than are regularly allotted . However , we remember distinctly that such was not the case last yea...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 19 January 1881

The average student just back from vacation is a most forlorn creature . Although he would not admit it to himself even , the plain truth of the matter is that he is desperately homesick . He mopes and growls and finds everything going wrong with him . To study is an unbearable affliction , and to be idle is to be p lunged into that hades of unemployed peop le of every station—the blues . The facts in the case are these : he has been utterly spoiled by petting while at home , and has become lazy through sheer heedlessness . When he left off studying at the close of last term it was after a protracted siege of cramming for the inevitable examinations . It is no wonder that with the memory of this fresh in his mind that it comes hard with him at first to shake off his carelessness , and step into the mental tread-mill once more and begin to grind . But soon the sharp distaste wears away and he finds enjoyment in it all .

ATTKE IRON MINES . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 19 January 1881

ATTKE IRON MINES . In the last number we were left by © inpatient cook on board the staunch ship Hurd , absorbing material from their bounteous tables with a gusto that he himself must confess far exceeded anything ever exhibited at camp . Dinner over , it was with a feeling of inmost satisfaction that we seated ourselves upon the forward deck , to watch the rushing waters as they filled the rock-bound locks of the government canal , and lifted our hugh boat through the eighteen feet that constituted the fall of the rapids . We moved on through this narrow way for about the distance of one mile , ( the length of the rapids ) passing man } vessels awaiting their turn , laden to their gunwales with mineral wealth gathered from the shores of the great lake . Leaving the canal , the steel arm of our engine quickened the stroke that was to pulsate steadily and unceasingly until we should reach our next port 140 miles distant . Looking aft , we took a farewell view of the busy village , t...

The college election of last Friday passed off with more than the usual amount of noise and squabbling over candidates . Such things have now come to be expected as a matter of course at the winter term election of each year . The occurrence of these at this time is due , we suppose , to the fact that then the new students have for the first time the privilege of voting ; and , as they have not become very well acquainted with the students of the higher classes , it is not a very difficult task to influence their votes in any way that the watchful schemers desire . All this electioneering nonsense , though noisy , does little harm so long as it is directed to the interests of those rjersons whose names appear on the regularly chosen ticket . But when persons are run independently for offices which they are utterl y unfit to hold , when their worthless claims are urged in an angry and aggressive manner , and when absolutely dishonest voting is attempted , then it is time that measure...

SONGS FOR THE SEASON . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 19 January 1881

SONGS FOR THE SEASON . I . —UNDER THE SNOW . Bells that chime and hoofs that clatter , Tongues that laugh and tongues that chatter , Cannot drown the voices crying , Are you hurt much ? Whats the matter ? When beneath the snows are lying , While the winter winds are sighing , Those the sleigh did softly scatter Like to dead leaves , only flatter . II . —UNDER THE HOOD . A muff and a scarf and a mitten ; A pair of eyes under a hood—Tin better by frost to be bitten Than risk , though you know that you would If you could , The pair of eyes under the hood . Oh , hush ! and look down as she passes ; Well , look at her , then , if you dare . Now , arent we a couple of asses ? She s ugly , and look at that glare ; I declare Shes a regular gorgon to stare ! III . —RULED BY NATURE S LAW . Tell me , little maid , Why you shrink and sigh so ; Are you then afraid When I sit close by so ? Why , the weather s cold , Which , I think you know , sir , Should contract the hold Just a little closer . ...

COLLEGE DRIFT . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 19 January 1881

COLLEGE DRIFT . EXCHANGES . Some weeks ago the Obrrlin Revii-. v put in a word for fairness in regard to college papers giving proper credit for items , verses , and so on . that go the rounds . Even before that time we had noticed the negligence , willful or otherwise , of different ones of our exchanges in this matter , and more especially since have we observed it . This is a practice that cannot be too heartily condemned . We have before us at present several papers that are guilty of this same practice of literary thieving : and , if a reform is not soon instituted , we shall be constrained to call somebody s name out loud . Moreover , we consider it not sufficient to enter a disclaimer of authorship indie mere addition of Ex ., or by a general heading . Clippings . The name oi the paper from which the item is taken should be given . Of course , it is sometimes necessarv to credit siniplv ex change , when the authorship is unknown ; but , for the most part , this need not be do...

Experiments with Cane Sugar . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 19 January 1881

Experiments with Cane Sugar . Professors Weber and Scovell have finished their experiments this year with sorghum . The results have led them to believe that sugar can be obtained from sorghum in paying quanities . At a meeting of the Cane Growers Association of Illinois which met at Springfield last month , Professor Scovell read a paper embodying the results of the experiments made , and at the conclusion resolutions were passed urging upon the legislature an appropriation sufficient to have these experiments continued at the University . The investigations made at the University are quite extensive , covering ( 1 ) the study of the development of the sugar in the cane , ( 2 ) a complete analysis of the stalk , its ash , and the seed , and ( 3 ) various methods of treating the juice before its evaporation to sirup , to insure the crystal lization of sugar . The results from the first of these in vestions are as follows : RESULTS OBTAINED FROM 1 ERIODICAL ANALYSES OF CANES FOR SUGA...
