" DOWN IN DIXIE . " [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1876
DOWN IN DIXIE . F . L . W . Off for the land of niggers , cotton , and flowers ! The rumble of wheels commingled with the hiss of steam , bespoke the departure of the excursionists . Midnight with its shaken clouds curtained the sleeping city , to be seen no more for days , perhaps forever , in fact within two weeks . Long weeks ! During that night the train crawled , glow-worm like , over the prairies , on into the day , rolling over the southern plains of our native state . Cairo , the city of mud , was arrived at toward noon . The levee is still there , but less busy than hi times past , less filled with the bustle of trade . The transfer ferries have made sad havoc with the business of the town , cars being now stemboated across the river . A word expresses the sentiments of the traveler . Homesick . The Ohio crossed , again whirling on through forest glades , over yellow streams , past Old Fort Jefferson , the freighted cars dash into Frost . Nashville is reached after a night ...
THE UNIVERSITY . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1876
THE UNIVERSITY . THE INTER-STATE CONTEST - Quite a number of our students betook themselves to Chicago on the 4 thinst . to attend the annual oratorical contest of the North-West-ern Inter-State Association . The 1 . 1 . U . felt a more than usual interest in this contest inasmuch as the orator of III . also represented this Univeisity . More than this , those who were able , and not burdened with conscientious scruples , were willing to bet that our man would bring us a gold medal . Indeed we all indulged in delusive phantoms and mildly staked what Ittle luxuries were at our command upon the happy result of the contest . But how futile are all man s speculations ! There were just five other states whose anticipations equaled ours . And what is worse for us , in the opinion of two of the judges at least , two of these states had better reason for their hope . Now it would not be becoming in us to express an opinion as to what ought to have been , which would contradict that of the h...
AROUND THE UNIVERSITY . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1876
AROUND THE UNIVERSITY . Lively times at the II . LINI office , Commencement quickly approaching . Junior exhibition Saturday evening , Juna 3 d . The girls are talking of organizing a base ball club . And wh y not ? Th *; campus has now the ippearance of an immense Field of the Cloth of Gold . It is its anual robe of dandelions which gives it this gorgeous appearance . We are not certain whether the girls decided to send their bulletin board or not , but we would advise them , in either case , to reconsider the matter , —just to keep up the interest . Evidentl y many of our students have heard this admonition of an an old college teacher , which they will do well to heed . If you expectorate on the floor you cant expect to rate very high in society . That beautiful case of birds placed on , exhibition by Mr . Wild as advertisement would be sufficient to convince the most sceptical that he is complete master of his art , and fully capable to instruct others therein . Dialogue near th...
EXCHANGE NOTES AND REVIEWS- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1876
EXCHANGE NOTES AND REVIEWS- Dalhousie Gazette ! Art thou yet alive ? Who would mourn should the Archangel bite the dust ? The Niagara Index . What are the seven dullest things on earth ? Five dollars reward to the Exchange which will answer that question . The Veterinarian . Illinois shines among the Kanucks . Good boy ! It gives us much p leasure to find in the pages of a foreign paper , mention , honorable mention , of our old class-mate , C . C . Lyford . At the Montreal Veterinary College Mr . Ly ford receives fourth in Botany , second in Chemistry , and first prize in written examinations , according to the Veterinarian . Messrs . McLaughlin and Ly ford were specially complimented by the examiners on the high percentage of marks they attained ; the former in chemistry and p hysiology , the latter in chemistry—not having been examined in physiology . All the boys who knew Mr . Ly ford remember him as a quiet , steady fellow , and their best wishes follow him . The Illinois Schoo...
CLIPPINGS- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1876
CLIPPINGS- As a Fresh and his girl were walking down town the other day , they saw a horse slip and fall down in the street . The young lady threw up her hands and uttered the following little tender , dolorous cry : Oh ! murder , that horse has fainted !—Ex . In a recitation a little ingenuity and power to read expression are worth hours of study . For example , the student answers a question by saying , I believe it is , then pauses , examines the symptoms of the Professors countenance , and adds a not or leaves it off , according to indications . —Ex . Yale has furnished to 116 of the leading institutions of the country 447 Presidents and Professors , being an average . of nearly four officers to each of those institutions . — Courant .

wmiT-Q > miJkJk * [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1876
wmiT-Q &gt; miJkJk * The American people are beginning to take an enthusiastic interest in the fine arts . Here-to-fore they have been a severely practical people , earnestly engaged in developing the principles of representative government , in promoting material industries and the consequent increase or wealth , and have devoted but very little time and strength to the nourishment of msthctical tendencies . National prosperity and industrial activity continuing through main years have resulted in the accumulation of wealth , have made an oppulent people . This is necessarily affording more time and opportunity for the cultivation of higher and more spiritual forms of thought , purpose and industry , than those embodied in purely practical pursuits and organizations . Two or three decades ago it was a rare thing for an unofficial American to go abroad . As it is now thousands go every year , and this simply for purposes of culture , for intellectual and aesthetical gratific...

A WALK IN THE WOODS- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 May 1876
A WALK IN THE WOODS- N . B . C . My dear schoolmates , have you ever strolled through a quiet wood on a bright and beautiful summer day , when the old Sun was enchanting all nature to joy and gladness by a flood of her life giving rays ? If you have , then let me lead you in fancy through a pleasant scene which I shall attempt to picture to you . Tis a lovely afternoon in the month of May . All nature has just been refreshed by a pleasant shower . I have yielded to the desire to enjoy a quiet walk , and have strolled leisurely into a delightful wood . A lazy breeze is rustling the leaves overhead , causing their shadows to play fantastic pantomimes with the sun s rays on the green carpeting beneath my feet . As I stroll along , I forget all the cares and troubles connected with the world of air , and enjoy a quiet revelry with nature . Everything about feels full of joy and gladness . The brook by which I walk is filled with sweetly murmuring spirits , laughing and singing in innoce...
