HEALTH AND BODILY ACTIVITY . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 October 1875
HEALTH AND BODILY ACTIVITY . BY T . J . B . No people can be a prosperous people , physically , intellectually or morally , who are not healthy and robust in body . Occasionally a master mind is tenanted in a frail body , but it is the exception , not the rule , and is never true when a whole people taken together is considered . Statistics show that the average life of human beings is longer as civilization increases . By improvement in agriculture and the arts , man obtains more and better food , is better protected by clothing and houses , has less sickeess and is better able to cope with disease when it comes . Dr . Jarvis , in the Fifth Annual Report of the Massachusetts Board of Health , shows that in Ancient Rome from 200 to 500 years A . D . the average duration of life in the most favored class , was 30 years ; in the present century among the same class it is 50 years . In the 16 th century , in Geneva , Switzerland , it was 21 . 21 years ; from 1814 to 18 33 it was 40 , 6...
ADIEU ! ADIEU ! [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 October 1875
ADIEU ! ADIEU ! BY A . L . D . Adieu heard once , nor heard no more , Wan whiteness falls our faces o er ; The flush tide flits from cheek to cheek ; The voice ! our tongues refuse to speak . No stern commotions surge within ! Palsied the pulse ; the eyes grow dim ; Our breasts their billows cease to heave , The passions almost cease to live , So speaks our friendship , mild but strong Tho closed the lips and dead the tongue , Tho mute our deeper self , who yet Can read its mysteries and forget . In martial train of beaut ous thought Hope s blithesome virtues swift arebrot While faith in mirage , perfectly Unfolds the greetings yet to be . Then cease , true heart , thine anxious beat , Time speeds o er years with hurrying feet , Nor will he rest till you and me Greet friend on friend in harmony .
MASTERY OVER NATURE . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 October 1875
MASTERY OVER NATURE . Humbolt and Ritter , Guyot and Spencer , have pointed out the dependence of man upon the physical conditions of the country he inhabits , clearly assigning the causes of the activity of nations in certain parts of the earth and the backwardness and torpor elsewhere . In our earlier history this control of nature over man was greater than at present because we have learned to master many of the difficulties . In the earliest settlement of this State men sought homes in the timber along the water-courses , believing it impossible to live upon the open prairies , and no doubt it was so in early times . Had a half-dozen followers of Cortez been obliged to have taken up their abode upon the fertile prairies we now occupy , aside from any hostility of the natives , they would inevitably have perished of starvation and exposure . In the cold regions the vital forces are consumed in maintaining animal existence , leaving nothing for the other requirements of life . The...
READING POETRY . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 October 1875
READING POETRY . BY S . S . It is the opinion of many that an appreciation of poetry b y any individual , is a sure indication of intellectual weakness—that the man who reads and dwells upon the beauty of the poets is of too effeminate a nature to be a complete man . Poetry may be well enough for a lovesick swain or a blushing maid , say they , but it is nonsense in real life . Nothing can be more false . Good poetry is the best thoughts of the best thinkers clothed in language the most acceptable to the eye , to the ear , and to the imagination , and nothing can be more refining , more ennobling or more elevating in its influence . Show us the man whom the beauties of Paradise Lost , of Popes Essay on Man , of Tennyson s In Memoriam or Evangeline , or Whittier s Maud Muller would fall without making an impression , and we will show you one who is either a hard-hearted wretch , with a soul yet in its infancy , or an intellectual pauper , who has not brains enough to appreciate beaut...
MY TWIN NAMESAKE . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 October 1875
MY TWIN NAMESAKE . BY PEARL FORRESTER . I m into a terrible trouble , For which I m in no wise to blame ; Tis caused by a chap in the country , Who bears my identical name . He is a gay , dashing young fellow , And very good looking ; you see There s no wonder when all is considered , Why the people all think he is me . To this I can urge no objection , As for him , he can certainly not , For the compliment he s thus receiving , Has never been Venus lot . Ill tell you just what is the trouble , And then if you dont sympathize With me , and censure him soundly , Ill request him to please compromise The trouble existing between us , And banish all feelings of scorn ; If he dont Ill—Ill perhaps most sincerely Regret that he ever was born . &gt; Tis tliis ; he coquetted the ladies , Till they all are now on the alert , And gathering items to publish , That I m a Cupidian flirt . I constantly try to disprove it , But my proof they regard with due care , Are careful , I mean , to ...

COLLEGE NEWS AND EXCHANGES . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 October 1875
COLLEGE NEWS AND EXCHANGES . As yet we have received but few exchanges for this year . They are , however , coming in slowly , and we hope to have received our entire list before our next issue . Among other welcome guests are the Franklin Educator , the University Bulletine , College you rnal , and St . Nicholis . Scribner s for October is an unusually interesting number . In it the absorbing stories of the Mysterious Island and the Story of Seven Oakes , are continued , while among its noticable illustrated articles is an over land trip to the Grand Canon . The Cornell Era is in favor of abolishing Commencement orations . Another organ suggests having some orator from abroad to honor the occasion . Of course if these colleges are unable to find talent enough in their Seinior Classes to produce interesting orations they might be pardoned for sending elswhere for orators . The Western , a St . Louis Journal , comes full of interest , for August and September . In the former number w...
EDITORIAL . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 October 1875
EDITORIAL . With this number , THE ILLINI commences another year , and in beginning this new year we would again urge upon our fellow-students the necessity of endeavoring to build up THE ILLINI , by literary contributions and liberal subscriptions . THE ILLINI , fellow students , is the property of every one of you . Let all endeavor , then , to have it well managed , ably supported , and constantly growing in power and literary beauty . May its pages never contain anything but that which is calculated to instruct , interest , and cultivate the minds of its readers ; and to this end we most cordially invite any and all to contribute to its pages whatever literary productions—prose or poetry—that they may deem fit . THE ILLINI is the investment of the body of students , controlled by a Senate elected by themselves ; hence it should be , and we believe it will be , supported , as any other investment made for gaining knowledge and promoting the best interests of our fellow-students ....
SEATS OF LEARNING . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 October 1875
SEATS OF LEARNING . BY A . STEELE PENS . It is a lamentable fact that many croakers still exist who question the desirability and efficacy of so many colleges . It is to be hoped , however , that they do not form even a respectable minority , for we believe the masses have so far caught the educational spirit of the times that they encourage higher education although they may not comprehend or think of its full import , or of what it consists . The institutions become desirable to them in almost as many ways as man is seen struggling amid the mutabilities of life , and from as many standpoints they are viewed . Thus when the . State would locate one of its institutions , this and that citizen of a certain city or village votes to offer endowment and compete for its location in their midst , because it will bring increased trade and business in all departments , a higher order of talent , and a more intellectual , social atmosphere to thenplace . Many of the advantages of these seats...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 October 1875
OUR COLLEGE GOVERNMENT . —Since the publication of the constitution and laws of the College Government in the ILLINI numerous comments have been passed by our exchanges on the government . Most of these notices , we are happy to say , are very favorable , and several colleges have written for extra copies of those numbers containing the laws in order to inquire into the feasibility of adopting a similar style of government . Among those few non-progressive publications who seem inclined to criticise this form of government , we have received for the first time a magazine published at Santa Clara , Cal ., styled She Owl , which is noticeable as containing throughout its editorials a general spirit of unjust criticism . Although containing nothing nothing in a literary line worthy of perusal , it criticises its exchanges with a looseness that betrays at once the jealous , inexperienced and imprudent editor . Under the head of College Regulations it contains the following : The Oberlii...
