CREMATION . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 June 1874
CREMATION . BTM . L . Burial is the interment of a deceased person , according to the established custom of a nation . In almost all countries the rites of sepulcher have been looked upon as so important and sacred , that those who neglected them were thought infamous . The Romans called them juste , implying an inviolable obligation which nature has laid upon the living , to perform the obsequies for the dead . It would be very interesting to trace in the history of all nations , both ancient and modern , the various modes and rites of burial . The ancients were far more particular in this respect than we , as they thought if the deceased were not interred , they would never be admitted into the Elysian fields ; but they scrupulously forbade criminals , selfmurderers , and prisoners who had suffered capital punishment these sacred privileges . Since the introduction of Christianity it has been the custom of Christian nations to bury their dead . Indeed , burning was thought of , on...
THE NOVELISTS OF AMERICA . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 October 1874
THE NOVELISTS OF AMERICA . BY C . O . SC . UDDER . • Within the limits of an essay of this character we can hope to present but a few of the more prominent authors who have left their names upon the glowing record book of our national literature . We shall divide the time into three epochs , viz , The Revolutionary period . From 1 S 30 to 1850 . From 1 S 50 to the present time . In American history , novels appeared later than poems and works of travel ; even satire had flourished a long time in verse before it • assumed the form of prose burlesque narrative . There is no doubt that the stern Puritanic doctrines extant at that period were unfavorable to the development of this style of writing . It was not until after the Revolution , about 1792 , that the first noteworthy American novel was published in the Columbia Magazine . It was entitled The Foresters of America , and . was written by Jeremy Belknap . The Foresters were personifications of the leading American States and inter...
" NANCY JANE , IT HAIN'T NO USE . " [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 October 1874
NANCY JANE , IT HAINT NO USE . J . N . MATTHEWS , 72 ; READ BEFORE ALUMKI 74 . Well , Nancy Jane , it haint no use tor us to fret and wonder ; Wed just as well come down a peg , and christian-like , knock under . When men of larnin gin to talk of burnin up the dead , Tis time to pull our tackle in , and let em stir ahead . It seems to me , and always did—I swow I don t know why—This age is bound to bust itself , by runnin things too high . They ve jerked the lightnin from the clouds , and chained it at their feet ; They ve knocked the devil oft * his pegs and ruined him complete ; Theyve weighed the stars and combed the tails of comets , at their ease ; And now , to cap it all , they say the moon is made of cheese . I can not tell what you may think ; but as for me , I know This world is goin all to rack , as fast as it can go . And I believe , upon my soul , if five good men could save it , To find em , we would have to turn it upside down and shave it . In makin sport of holy thin...
. METEOROLOGY AND AGRICULTURE . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 October 1874
. METEOROLOGY AND AGRICULTURE . BY R . A . Before man enters a country , it is covered with wild grasses and forests . Living streams of water are found in every ravine . As civilization advances the sod is plowed up and the forests cut down . The early settlers find but little trouble to get a supply of water sufficient for all purposes ; but as soon as the forests disappear the springs are exhausted and there is a general complaint of the scarcity of running water , or , if the stream is laf ge and empties into a lake , the waters of the lake diminish so that often many acres are obtained from it . Cities that have been built near lakes have been removed mute a distance from them bv rlip rprWHno- nftlicwiitcrs . v I - - J 1 , ~ ..... . The action of the present agricultural svstem on a country is twofold . ( i ) In turning the sod or breaking it up . This destroys the spongy nature of the surface , and establishes a system of surface drainage , causing an irregularity in the flow ...
THE OAKS AND THE GRAPEVINE . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 October 1874
THE OAKS AND THE GRAPEVINE . BY G . F . K . Long ago two acorns dropped from their parent tree into the mold on the shady bank of a beautiful river . As they sprang up they were charmed to meet each other in their new life and recognized each othe ; as twin brothers . Almost between them , sprang up the next spring a tiny w . ld grapevine and , knowing well its future needs , held out beseechingly for aid . One of the little oaks repulsed the creeping , groveling , weak thing , as he called the vine . You can never rise , said he , as he jauntily tossed his head , and I am not to remain down here to assist you . I must be the mi ghty monarch of the forest as is mv father , that stands yonder in such majesty . His brother was more kind and as the gentle winds played around him , he asked them to aid him in bending as far as he could toward the tender vine . His selfish brother chided him , and , I am sorry to say , the two little oaks , that had lived so peacefully and lovingly toget...
A REMINISCENCE . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 October 1874
A REMINISCENCE . BY D . M . There is something exceedingly pleasant in remembrances , and often has the solitary hour been made happy , by the recollection of events that have transpired in our early personal history . The exhumation of a long forgotten and deeply buried incident affords us as much gratification as it does to the geologist when he discovers a fossil deeply buried in the drift and alluvium of ages . Our reminiscence dates i 860 . Place , county of W , through which the ever mirrored waters of the Elkhorn wend their way to the Father of Waters . A few miles from the junction of the streams and on the banks of the Elkhorn , is situated the small neighborhood of R . The inhabitants were mostl y foreigners , and their occupation was principally that of tilling the soil . Among these there was a family consisting of husband , wife , and fourteen children , noted for their pe culiarities , peculiarities not so very striking , but enough so to render them a marked contrast ...

by flaming hand-bills stating that a gorilla had escaped from Van Amburgh s menagerie at Dubuque . That was fact enough . His plans were laid immediately . He went straight to his box of muskrat skins and commenced making an outfit . On the morning of the second day the last stitch was made , and Tommy when circumstances permitted could represent his rude , primitive ancestor , the gorilla , quite accurately . He made his first appearance to some wood-choppers , who were made aware of the presence of some unnatural inhabitant , by the strange actions of the dog . Curiosity prompted one of the men to step a few rods into the brush to see what was the matter . He had not gone verv far before his curiosity was fully satisfied ; for there through the tangled underbrush he caught a glimpse of the animal . One glance was enough ; turning on his heels he ran madly past his companions , exclaiming , Run for your lives , the devil himself is upon us , and they did run—never stopping until th...
HEATING AND VENTILATION . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 October 1874
HEATING AND VENTILATION . BY T . J . B . There is scarcely nothing connected with our physical well-being and enjoyment more important than properly heated and ventilated houses , work-shops and offices . Yet there is scarcely nothing upon which so little thought is given or investigation bestowed . iJecause the effect is sooner felt , the former has more attention than the latter . Indeed heating often consumes the whole thought and arrangements for it are made which thoroughly obstruct the only chance for ventilation which naturally existed . The Indians make their huts and tents as close and tight as possible , while their fires are kindled upon the ground in the centre , allowing the smoke to fill the abode . They imagine the smoke helps to keep them warm , and for this are willing to put up with its irritating effects upon the eyes and lungs . Is it a wonder they have swarthy complexions or that they are experts at tanning leather ? The Japanese have no chimneys save for their ...
COMMUNICATION . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 October 1874
COMMUNICATION . EDITORS ILLINI : The military critic of the Times gracefully dismisses our commander on the charge of unfixed bayonets , but pitches into us poor students in a way that is child-like and bland . He accuses us of having carried our muskets on all possible slants . —Well , I ought to know how to carry my gun on a right shoulder by this time , according to the principles , forearm-horizandicular , elbow to the body , etc ., so well inculcated by several gallant captains . But for all that , my conscience is not entirely easy on the subject , nor is chum s ; and , for aught I know , I may be one of the unfortunate individuals thus recklessly criticised . Now , I have the following scientific question to propound to this learned critic : Why is it that this old or new musket of mine , which I carried so slantingly on the four mile stretch through Springfield to the Lincoln Monument , did , then and there , without any provocation on my part , grow heavier after the first ...
