OUR IDEALS- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1876

OUR IDEALS- CHAPEL TALK BY THE REGENT . The average student desires success . He looks out upon the future with mingled anxiety and hope . He studies with care the careers of successful men , and weighs the causes or characteristics which have led to their success . He turns back his attention upon himself to judge whether he ma ) - command these causes , or cultivate these characteristics . More or less consciously he chooses some one as his ideal . He cannot avoid it . We all have our ideals which we admire and imitate . The Student s ideal may be found among his own classmates . Some fellow-student , whose wit , ordaring , or love of fun , or talent , may have caught his attention . Or this ideal may have been selected from some public man of his acquaintance , some writer , orator , or statesman . Frequently his ideals are taken from history . Csesar and Cicero have served as ideals . Napoleon , Washington , Webster , and Lincoln , have thus helped to shape many of their admirer...

FOR DARWIN- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1876

FOR DARWIN- . T . J . 15 . The evolutionists explain the peculiarities of . structure , in . animals and plants by reference to the supposed law of Natural Selection , and much of the beauty of form and color by a kind of sub-law called Sexual selection . In the struggle for existence some chance variation give ! an individual more power in gaining food or escaping enemies . It is thoi cfore just so much more likely to leave offspring , sind such of these as inherit thechar : -cter sties of the parents will likewise succeed better in life . This is natural selection . The survival of the fittest . The developcment of the eye ot an eagle from a simple bit of protoplasm is a wonderful thing , yet persons believe they have traced the f process step bv step through the lower forms of life up to its ultimate perfection . The increased use to the individual rendering it more sin e i t f , or more capable of getting a living is the key to progress . In tin 1 - , s way all organs are of use...

" OUR DICTIONARY- " [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1876

OUR DICTIONARY- M . A . C . K . Heretofore Noah Webster has been our authority , but it must be seen that his definitions , are not only quite old fashioned , but many times quite unmanageble in their application to cases of the present day . We therefore beg leave with your permission , and with all due deference to our honored lexicographer , to suggest a few improvements by way of making some of his definitions more rigidly conform to the recent use of these words , as follows : — Charity : —Condemning others for what you do yourself . Height of Honor : —Watching the perambulations of other people , especially in the evening . True Friendship : —Treating people well at their faces and slandering them as soon as they turn their backs . Temperance : —The true meaning of this word appears to be fully understood by all . It consists chiefly in drinking cold water and eating brandy peaches . Bonnet : —Formerly , a covering for the head , now , an article to defend the back of the neck...

HUMAN SOCIETY . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1876

HUMAN SOCIETY . M . j . WRIOHT . ( Adelphic Society . ) Human society , how extended is its kingdom , and how deep does it penetrate the mechanism of the hnman soul 1 Its power is as universal as the globe , and as effective sis civilization . Human society is the atmosphere into which all mankind are ushered . It is as impossible with the existence of individnsils to refrain from the genial respiration of the atmosphere of society , as it is for the human intellect to penetrate the borders of infinity . It is co-existent with infinity . The Hottentot is low in the scale of human intelligence , yet he is surrounded by companionship , by established principles , habits and customs of centuries . The semi-barbaric nations of the past were governed to a great degree by the iron bands of society . We see it exemplified in their fundamental principles of civilization , for civilization is but the outgrowth of society and dependent directly upon it for its advancement . But sis we see its...

THE MACHINIST . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1876

THE MACHINIST . E . M . UURR , [ Adelphic Society . ] We have been pleased to hear the Regent frecjuently allude to shop , as out door labor , as a great benefit to the student by affording recreation for his mind , and supporting his physical strength . For this purpose , the State has given to this University its convenient and useful shops in order that it might turn out practical as well as a theoretical mechanics , and to afford labor from which to earn for themselves an education . It is to be regretted that other colleges do not contain equal facilities fir the promotion of their engineering classes . It is true that some of them have better facilities , yet those of this University are far above the average . The thorough training in drawing v \ hich the mechai . ical student receives , ( for 1 speak now more particularly of the mcchanicd department ) together with the practice during his time of stsiy , p laces him sit the completion of his study here considerabl y above th...

GEORGE SAND AND GEORGE ELIOT . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1876

GEORGE SAND AND GEORGE ELIOT . MISS ii . n . GREGORY , ( Alethenai Society . ) It is a generally recognised fact that these two women stand chief among the novelists of the century . Critics uncover their heads in their presence , and , unable to gainsay their position among the ssivants and thinkers of the day , employ their time in seaiching for the Open Sesame which has given Mrs . Lewes and Madame Dudevant entrance to the mystic circle . The title of George Eliot , the nom de plume assumed b y Mrs . Lewes , is just now on every one s lips . The appearance of her latest book has so filled the press with reviews and critiques that even those who have hitherto evinced no interest in her works read Daniel Deronda to learn wherein lies her wonderful power . America vies with her native Britain in doing homage to a genius so universal . George Sand is less known in this country than in England and finds her majority of readers on the European continent , It is to be regretted that the...

STICK TO YOUR MARK- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1876

STICK TO YOUR MARK- MANPORD SAVAGE , ( Philomathean Society . ) How many failures in life occur simply from not sticking to the mark . We believe there are but few , if any , who do not in early life p lace the mark . They build beautiful castles in Spain , in which they hang the most lovely p ictures of the future ; but year after year passes , and they arc no nearer the realization of their wishes , than in the beginning . The same ocean with its mountain waves rolls between them and their castles ; time and distance have dimmed some of the colors of the picture , but it still remains , and will haunt them through life . Every man , we think , is prompted by his very nature , to choose some calling in life ; and would every person obey these promptings , we should have but few failures . There are various reasons why these are disregarded . The first , and perhaps the most common , is the decision of the head of the family . The father of some half a dozen boys , sits down some mo...

THE CRITICAL POINT- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1876

THE CRITICAL POINT- M . si . STACY . [ Scientific Association . ] Certain points in every life are distinguished as marking great changes . But of all these decisive points , the most critical is the time when one first becomes his own master ; when all the shackles are thrown off and all restaints removed . Especiall y so is this the case , when young men , accustomed to rely upon others for all things and to have no real responsibilty for themsives , arrive at the decisive age of twentyone ; when they are restrained no longer , but are directed by their own judgement and discretion . A fixed determination at this point decides the whole after course of their lives . How important should it be then to all those youths . in this position , to be careful to decide ri ghtl y in a matter of such great importance to them . But we must not suppose that this decision is simply an event of the moment . We can not expect a young man , filled with false ideas and wrong impressions , and carr...

ADVANCEMENT OF SCIENCE IN AMERICA- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1876

ADVANCEMENT OF SCIENCE IN AMERICA- E . E . HARDEN . [ Scientific Association . ] It has been well said that we live in an age of advancement . Look where we may we see springing up before our vision something that proves to us that we are advancing . Literature , Science and Art are making rapid strides towards their perfection . It is true that there have been difficulties of a very formidable character which have had to be opposed , but in the face of all opposition they still live . During the century which is now approaching its close there has been a marked advancement especially in the scientific world , and the record of the past one hundred years will show to all with unmistakable exactness , the energy with which scientific investigations and applications arc being carried on . Toward the close of the eighteenth century the Republic was in a state of extreme wretchedness and revolt having been caused b y the Revolutionary War , and from that time only c ; in we , with any d...

HISTORICAL SKETCH OF MUSIC . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1876

HISTORICAL SKETCH OF MUSIC . EUTERPE . It would be difficult to tell when music first originated , unless we refer , as school girls have since school girls were , to the time when earth was young and . the morning stsirs sang together . The stars may have whispered thei r secret to the deities , for the ancient myths assert thsit even the gods came with the lyre and flute to teach the divine art to mortals . The Greeks ignore the fact that their music was borrowed from the Egyptians , but declare that Amphion , son of Jupiter , made them a musical nation . Jubal is the first one mentioned in scripture as father of those who handle the harp and organ . All authorities agree , that music was cultivated to a certain extent by ancients , but much more compre hensive ! y used than at present , it then included everything which related especially to the cultivsition of the mind . Plutarch and others speak of it in this sense , as being iiulispensable to the education of the young . Songs...

MUSIC- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1876

MUSIC- J . E . LEI-LER , 75 . That quaint German , Heinrich Heine , has said that music is perhaps the last word of art . This is a poetical expression of great truth . Men began to carve before they began to paint . The monument is older than the picture . The hatchet antedates the hieroglyp hic . Last of all man sung . The only explanation o ? these facts is that Genius of Painting is greater than that of Sculpture , and the Genius of Music is greater than either . Music had to wait for Sculpture to awaken the mind , and for Painting to inspire it before she could enrapture it with melody . The Apollos and Venuses and Cupids had mounted many a pedestal before ever a Transfiguration or a Judgment had embellished a wall . And the minds of millions had dwelt in silent wonder upon the images of the marble and the scenes of the canvas before ever their hearts hsid melted with the joy or wept with the pathos of music . First we have a Phidias , then si Raphael , and last of a Beethoven ...

SELECTED PARAGRAPHS- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1876

SELECTED PARAGRAPHS- The following remarks on student letter writing we copy from the Oberlin Review . Home letters is our text to day . It naturally divides into letters from , and letters for home . It is of the latter we wish to speak . We sill have some idea what they should be , but how can we realize our ideal ; what are the things essential for it ? The first thing is the time for writing . Il is not when you are in a hurry , and can only dash off a few l ties . Ic is not when you are in a worry and can onl y think of your troubles . You must-take a time when you can write delibaratjclv and carefully with > ut being haunted by unlearned lessons . To whom shall we write ? To the whole famil y in general ? No . Such letters sn e unsatisfactory to both parties . You loose the plcsisure of talking to esich one personally , of deepening our siftectibn for , and interest in them . They get a letter that fits no one , because written for no one . No one feels that he was ...

i ^ OITIIlftEAlte [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 November 1876

i ^ OITIIlftEAlte We are trying to sit easily in the editorial chair , but the strangeness of the position and its responsibility sets our mind in a little whirl ; md our fingers to shaking . We yet feel the parting grasp of the former editor as he delivered to us his pen , and it is with . reluctance that we look after his vanishing form which leaves us pen in hand , alone . We , however , give the pen an additional grip , survey the new field of-labor and begin work with a will . The success of the II . LINI during the past year gives us a good foundation to builel upon . Our magazine is now on a sound financial basis , and what is now needed to make it one of best college journals is the hearty co-operation of the students in its literary matter . The committee have seen fit to . have the literary societies represented on its editorial staff , and we earnestly hope that they will take hold of the matter with energy , do honor to the societies and thereby make all the friends of t...
