DREAM CREATIONS . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 April 1875
DREAM CREATIONS . BY V . W . C . With a feeling of pride the American citizen takes his pen and writes high in the zenith , by the side of Star of Empire his motto , Life is practical . Nothing more , nothing less . So intensely extreme has this idea of human existence become in our land that if any thought would enter the citadel of the American mind it must send a herald to trumpet the watchword practical . And we see through every action if we hear not from the lips , No freaks of fancy for me if you please , my life , at least , shall not be an empty dream . Ushered into life amid the turmoil and tumult of so much action , the buzz and bustle of machinery , the rumble of the locomotive , the shrill whistle of the steamboat , the ringing echo of the pioneer s ax , we can hardly wonder at the outgrowth of such a sentiment in the American mind . And • yet how exclusive , how sordid , what an inadequate comprehension of man past , man present , man future . The thought wanderer may ...

A WEEK AT NEWPORT . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1875
A WEEK AT NEWPORT . , BY DEL . Aunt Eunice , said I , appearing at the door of the sitting-room with a pair of slippers in my right hand , a dress on my left arm , and a puzzled look on my face : Aunt Eunice had I better take a trunk to Newport with me ? I don t know dear , replied she quietly ; how long do you expect to stay ? Not more than a week certainly , said I . Then dear I guess— , what do you intend to do ? Oh ! I replied , visit all the objects of interest , and spend all the time I can with old Neptune . Well then continued Aunt Eunice , as you expect to stay so short a time , and do not expect to attend parties etc ., I think you had better not take a trunk ; take only what you need , it will be less trouble . Thus advised I packed a satchel and basket , putting in a book on Zoology and one on Botany , for we expected to gather ever so many specimens of shells and cryptogams . We expected to take the ten . o clock boat and at nine , I was all ready and our luggage stood ...
HABITS OF PLANTS . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1875
HABITS OF PLANTS . BY T . J . B . Nothing in the line of Natural History of recent date has so arroused the observing , and elicited so much discussion , calling forth so many explanations , as the relation of plants and insects ; especially the means employed by the former to secure the services of the latter in the distribution of pollen and the actual catching and use of the insects by the plants as food . This hasty sketch is written from the side of the plants . Some equally marvellous accounts of the special adaptations of the insect , might also . have been given , time and space permitting . The whole matter is new , though every newspaper in the land has ventured to enlighten its readers thereupon . CARNIVOROUS HABITS OF PLANTS . Many of the facts had indeed been long known and even interpreted as we now understand them , but failed to interest any beyond the individual investigators . The times were not ready for such anomalies in nature . Plants were looked upon as so who...
ECONOMY IN ILLUMINATION , [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1875
ECONOMY IN ILLUMINATION , From the Physical Laboratory of the University . BY PROF . S . W . ROBINSON . Questions like the following are often raised , especially by those contemplating changes , for in this Age of Improvement no one has a desire for advancing backward . What is the best mode of illumination ? what is the best mode of warming and ventilating ? what are the relative merits of animal and vegetable fiber in clothing ? should our diet be largely or sparingly animal ? should we use much or little salt in seasoning ? is sugar only useful in rendering food palatable or is it valuable as a food , etc ., etc . While these questions are difficult of solution , an exact solution of some being perhaps impossible ; others , at least parts of them , admit of being answered with considerable exactness . It is not my object to so intrude upon the Department of Domestic Economy as to attempt an answer to all these questions . But having results , lately brought out bearing upon one ...

INTER-STATE CONTEST . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1875
INTER-STATE CONTEST . Illinois claiming to first have instituted the Oratorical Contest idea , has probably looked forward to the occasion of our first inter-state contest with more of interest and anxiety than any other state participating . The marked success of our collegiate contests induced our association to establish this higher order and invite into the ranks the champions of the different states . Iowa , Mo . , Wis . and Ind ., the only states having similar associations , readily acceded . The association now numbers forty-seven institutions , enrolling near twelve thousand students . Indianapolis , Ind . was the place chosen for holding the first contest . The work of the convention , which met the 13 th , was of little general interest ; except to determine the prizes , and place of next meeting . The prizes awarded arc a gold medal for the first prize , and a silver medal for the second prize . The place for holding the next annual session was fixed at Chicago , and the...

EDITORIAL [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1875
EDITORIAL The desire to hold inter-collegiate re-unions is spreading like an epidemic among our colleges . The inter-collegiate boat race imported from England first turned the minds of college students to the subject . Then oratorical contests , originating in the West among colleges where boat racing was impossible , filled its place and served to draw nearer those great institutionsjwhose common , object should bind them in fraternal union . From our exchanges we learn that this idea of collegiate contests is apout to be carried farther . Some of the students who seem to have but little work to do , and finding themselves left behind in the race for oratorical and literary honors , have thought to become famous by forming Inter-Collegiate Chess , Base-ball and Billiard Associations . One of our Exchanges has a special department devoted to the noble (?) game of Chess . All are invited to send contributions as it is the aim of the Editor to develop this pastime to its greatest ext...
