A WEEK AT NEWPORT . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 June 1875
A WEEK AT NEWPORT . BY DEL . The next morning found us quite refreshed and rested from our . msual exertions of the day before . What shall we do to-day ? cried Aunt Eva , running over soon after breakfast . Well , Del , cried H ., what shall it be ? A walk around Newport , I think , then we can go again to the beach , if we are not too tired , I eagerly replied . Just the thing , said Aunt Madge , but I shall expect you back by dinner time . So we set out , turning towards the east and proceeding down Touro St . A few steps from starting point , we came to a yellow brick house , of peculiar shape , neatly fenced in , and with a pretty yard all around it . That is the Jewish synagogue , said Aunt Eva . See , the window is open , let us go in if we can . No sooner said than attempte d We opened the gate , walked straight up to the side door , nd f •„¦ it was fastened . We were just leaving the building , when b , Ae the gate , sung out , Go around to the back door . We ° j-V ther aro...
UTILITY OF SCIENCE . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 June 1875
UTILITY OF SCIENCE . BY c . I . HAYS . Read before Alumni Association , 75 . The subject I have chosen will not attract your attention through its title . In making my choice , the fact was not overlooked that it was to be read before the Alumni and friends of a scientific school , who are no doubt acquainted with the leading facts . The writer lays no claim to originality in any of the ideas advanced , but sincerely wishes that the old thoughts here embodied in a new form , may cause us to give our sympathy more warmly , our influence more earnestly , and our time more devotedly to the interests of science , that great factor in human existence . We can properly date the advent of science from the time men began to enquire into the nature of things , this enquiry to include all investigations concerning natural phenomena . From this seeking for causes , asking the whys and wherefores , has arisen that colossal structure , the temple of science , which is made up of the truths wrenc...
RHYME OF THE NAVY . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 June 1875
RHYME OF THE NAVY . BY J . N . MATHEWS . Read before Alumni . Association , 73 . It was a bright March evening , In the year of Sixty-two , The ocean monster , Merrimac , OffCraney Island drew ; All freighted with her forty guns , The monarch of the seas , With rebel soldiers on her deck , And banners on the breeze . She was the staunchest ship of war That ever put from shore , Tis said her like was never launched Upon the seas before ; And at each side an iron-clad , The Jamestown and the York , Prepared to make of Yankee sloops , A supper for the shark . And straight to Newport News they bore Fast plowing thro the spray , To where our little Cumberland Lay rocking on the bay ; And where the crippled Congress , too , As yet unused to wars , At anchor swung upon the tide , Beneath the Stripes and Stars . As darkness fell on Hampton Roads , That long remembered night , No choice was left our Yankee boys , But strike their flag or fight ; No phantom of a hope to cheer , No Providence ...
HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF ' 75 . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 June 1875
HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 75 . CHAP . I . We have had the same conviction in regard to the class of 75 that Mrs . Micawber had concerning Wilkins when thus expressing herself : Mr . Micawber may be— I can r . ct disguise from myself that the probability is , Mr . Micawber will be a page of history . With us this conviction has become b y degrees an evident certainty , and to give this page a local habitation and a name has been the pleasurable task of your historian . To evolve a very large history out of a very small subject has been called one of the great triumphs of historic skill , but our position is rather that of one who makes a very small history out of a very large subject . Standing as we do at the threshold of a new existence , scanning with eager and expectant vision our new fields of labor , we pause to take a brief retrospective glance at the principal events of our college life ; to consider the hard fought battles , the sieges laid , the occasional defeats and victori...
MILITARY EDUCATION . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 June 1875
MILITARY EDUCATION . BY CAPT . JAS . FAULKNER . Graduating Oration Delivered Jtme 73 . Among our commendable national feelings , there is the feeling of Military Power . From that region where the refulgent glories of the Aurora Borealis illumine the polar night to where celestial summer never ceases to bloom ; from Greenland s icy mountains to India s coral sands , this feeling will be found . And it should ever be for the protection of national honor , and of national integrity , and for the perpetuation and dissemination of liberty and equal rights . Hence , arises in giant magnitude , the importance of Military Education in the United States . The military forces of the world are recognized prerogatives of the governments . Our governmental parents early saw the need of education in this department of national life , having had sad experience of their own deficiency ; and they established national academies where higher , and proper instruction should be instilled into their suc...
CLASS POEM . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 June 1875
CLASS POEM . BY ELLA V . SKINNER . Read before Sophomore Class Meeting , Junef , jry . We stand at the foot of a mountain abounding in Wisdom and Truth , Where the thoughts of the great and the mighty are handed down to the youth ; But the sides are so steep and so rugged , the pathway with trouble grown o er , That heart shrinks back from the duty , as onward with mind it must soar . There s a glimmer of light on that mountain , where knowledge has placed her lamp . As we near the clear flowing fountain , new scenes of beauty arise To greet the happy wanderers with glad and new surprise . The goal for which we are striving , in the future far away , Grows brighter as we near it : tis our own Commencement Day . There s a life beyond Commencement , and the duties mingled through Will prove to us a choicest blessing , if to our aim we re true . So onward and upward our spirits must move , To the Golden Hereafter , the bright world above . Faith , Hope and Charity , these sister Graces...
AMERICAN ART . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 June 1875
AMERICAN ART . BY V . W . CODDINGTON . Graduating Oration Delivered June , frf . In speaking of American Art one can not sdeak with that exultation which national pride would prompt were he talking of any other attendant element of american civilization . Our puritan fathers in the stern simplicity of their lives , held little sympathy with what the world calls art . To them the word meant only the pageantry of worldly splendor ; the pomp of nobility ; and the proud magnificence of despotic priesthood . From this extreme standpoint they failed to recognize that faculty of the mind which yearns for the materially beautiful and crushed with firm relentlessness the hand that dared to adore . This anti-artistic spirit perpetuated itself through their posterily and became one of the prominent features of Americanism . It permeated the very bone and fiber of the body politic , and men busied themselves only with the strongest problems of life , ignorant of the repose which the play of the...
AN APOSTROPHIC REVELATION . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 June 1875
AN APOSTROPHIC REVELATION . GRADUATING ORATION OF J . E . LEFLAR . One beautiful afternoon in the autumn of 6 4 , 1 was sauntering along the lovely banks ofthe romantic cascade-rill in South-eastern Pennsylvania , filled with the silent and irresistible spirituality of beauty . So freely , and kindly , and sympathetically did every blade , and flower and leaf seem to speak to me , when suddenly there arose from a neighboring grove of chestnut and hazel that swept away with crimson flashes of sumach fire far over the western hill towards the western sky , loud shouts of joy and ringing peals of merry laughter intermingled with broken strains of music , over all of which there floated still the bewitching titter of mischievous girls , and then gradually died away in prolonged echoes of indescribable sweetness , leaving a spell , a mysterious charm upon the heart like that which lingers there when the lark has lost itself in the sunshine of the upper world and left its song behind . A ...
OUR NEW DEPARTURE . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 June 1875
OUR NEW DEPARTURE . GRADUATING ESSAY OF ALICE LEE . One characteristic of this century is the tendency of the mind to leave old and well-trodden paths and enter new unexplored ones . There is less tendency to enter those leading off to the moon and stars , —to contemplate their mysterious movements and calculate their exact distances , —and more to choose roads leading to the humbler investigations of our own little world . By comparing dates of important inventions and discoveries , we find that the skies were mapped out long before the earth ; that celestial circulation was known long before the circulation of the blood . Thus , for ages , the mind was engaged with things afar off , entirely neglecting to become acquainted with the wonderful physical agencies which have control of our earthly being . As civilization advances , however , a higher estimate is placed upon the advantage which society may reap from the better acquaintance with material phenomena . Great prominence is g...
