A PLEA FOR SCIENCE- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1876

A PLEA FOR SCIENCE- Read before the Alumni Association by A . C . Swartz , June 6 th , 1876 . • It has . become the order ot our association that one of its members he appointed each year . to say . something about science . We would not have you understand by this , however , that we think science stands in need , of any support that we are able to contribute . In presenting this paper , it is only proposed . to notice a few ofthe claims that science , has . upon us , in regard toour national-development as well as in things pertaining to the conscience . There need be no argument to prove that we are debtors to science , and it is equally true that no argument can prove the amount of this indebtedness . . From the founding ofthe Alexandrian school to the present time , there has been no discovery in science -but has had its influence for good upon mankind everywhere . All along down the ages we find its stepping stones . Upon every one is written progress , Alexandrian science dur...

THE INFLUENCE OF ASSOCIATION . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1876

THE INFLUENCE OF ASSOCIATION . c . i .. SIM , —Adclphic Society . Man is what his fellow-men make him . He is onl y one of the dependent stones which forms this massive structure of humanity . For happiness , for prosperity , for his very existence he is dependent upon his fellow-men . It is this influence of the associations and surroundings of a man that causes him to perform heroic deeds , I would not deteriorate the patriotic devotion which a man may have for his country or for the promulgation of truth inscience or religion , that inspires him to risk life itself in their defence , but underneath all this there is the more powerful influence ofthe surroundings , the pressure and the demands of his fellow-men . If we will call to mind the histories ofthe great men of the world , we can see th . it it was their personal surroundings , or the agitation of the times , that supplied them the motive power , that enabled them to accomplish deeds of valor , or to mike great revolutions...

ALLEGORY- —THE DROP OF WATER- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1876

ALLEGORY- —THE DROP OF WATER- v . c . —Scientific Association . Upon the side of a mountain a drop of water , created in the heavens , fell and for the first time beheld the beauties of nature . All around seemed to be set as a feast for the eye and ear . The sun soon shone out and made all things bright with golden morning lig ht . The sides ofthe mountain were clothed in green richly set with flowers . Thus as far as the eye could see were all things pleasant to look upon . The water passed down through the sunshine and the flowers with no desire to stay , but with a longing for things beyond for they seemed brig hter- Soon it realized that it was being carried along by a force seemingly within itself but beyond its control , not down a brook but down the beginning of a mighty river . Life , the beginning was small , only a hands breadth and clear as a crystal , and pure as snow . On it glided now smoothly , now it murmurs an <> rilv as a stone or root hinder...

THE HORRIBLE IN ART- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1876

THE HORRIBLE IN ART- BY ii . G . —Alethanai Society . An article on the Great Centennial published a short time since contains the following statement . Among the many pictures in memorial Hall the two attracting the most attention are the marriage of the Prince of Wales , and Rizpah defending the bodies of her sons . This mention of Frith s picture is not a mutter of surprise . Its subject would naturally attract the title-loving American , and we mayhap , exhibit something of the savage element in our appreciation ot painting , unconsciously gravitating toward the bright colors and sharp outlines such as characterize this artists work . But the statement in regard to the reflection that in almost every critique on Centennial art George Becker s Rizpah has received prominent notice even to the exclusion of finer work . This is doubtless as the artist intended it should be . In dealing with his subject , he evidentl y aimed at attaining the striking and startling . His figures are o...

THE BEAUTIFUL- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1876

THE BEAUTIFUL- J . c . i „—Philomathean Society . The beautiful has been the tjlicme of writers for ages . Many have attempted to analyze and define it , but their attempts have not been successful . It has an influence over all . By the thoughtful her charms are seen in manj r things , that to the careless observer appear without meaning . No one can deny that the beautiful in the objects around or has an influence to elevate us ; it summons our attention , challenges our thought , and imparts higher motives for action . With each examination , new qualities appear that add to the beauty of theobject . Research leads to discovery . Little b y little the beauty ofthe solar system was discovered to man . It is the beauty the scientist sees in his favorite studies that causes him to delve on , and his labor is rewarded by the new pleasures derived and knowledge gained . Pleasure is a welcome guest to all men and what is more conducive to pleasant thought than a beautiful scene , a p i...

AMONG THE MOUNTAINS- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1876

AMONG THE MOUNTAINS- Fa AXCISCA . —Alcthenai Socic y . Consider pleasures as they depart , not as they come . He who lives after nature shall never be poor ; after opinion shall shall ever be poor . —Seneca . The word came that there was accomodation for five in a quiet home in the mountains . A few days later and the five , consisting of two ladies and three girls were seen standing on the platform of a pretty New England depot waiting for a coming train , whose whistle- could alread y be heard , echoing among the hills . Happy expectant faces were those five , and in the car , talk flowed freely , until the variety of changing scenes held ill eyes , as the train went rattling over bridges , between lakes , around and through villages . A couple of hours and the train stops at a station among the mountains , here the party get off , and while getting into the three-seated buggy in waiting , the girls discover where The Store , as the sign says , and the post office , all in one , i...

ART IN COMMON THINGS- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1876

ART IN COMMON THINGS- r . Y c . ii . it . — Scienti fic Association . There are few people in this world who have no love for the beautiful , and yet there are few who make this love practical . Most persons , especially most young persons , regard ait as a thing that is to be placed in a corner , and admired from a distance , and seem to think that it can have nothing to do with every day life ; that , at best , it is a thing to be approached and handled only by those who are skilled in its study . This may be true of the higher forms of art , as Sculpture and Painting , but there is one kind of art wdiich all may use , and which will always give satisfaction . It is the useful art , — the art which is applied to those things that are of material benefit to mankind . This kind of art can be carried into any branch of human production , however simple , and life can be made far happier by a judicious use of it . For example , suppose a man wants a wheel-barrow . He goes to the shop ...

THE LILAC LEAF MOULD- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1876

THE LILAC LEAF MOULD- BY T . } . B . In the November number ofthe ILLINI mention was made ofthe singularly beautiful forms sometimes assumed by the lower . cryptogam ? ic plants . To-day the instructor in architectural ornamentation called to ask about a microscope which would show , in suitable size , the forms and patterns of minute organisms that they might be immortalized in art . The two , it is assumed , bad no connection ; but they very properly might have had the relation of cause and effect . If a thing of beauty is a ; joy forever , surely some use should be made ofthe exquisite penciling and sculpturing revealed by the microscope . What wonder that he who is once introduced to the wonderful forms and marvelous beauties of the microscopic world should seek with burning ardor to gain a more intimate acquaintance with its fairy creations ! What woneler that a student of the half-revealed , half-mysterious objects upon which he tries his magnifier , should almost become an id...

ORATORS . Read bfore the l . itcrarv M : ctin < x of th- ^ unhtr Clas < , Aov . 21 , 1876 , —by W . F . S . Orators arc the teachers of men ; they influence the resolutions of men . They therefore serve a prominent part in the worlds activity—a part that very fc \ V are talented to perform . To go back in history or to wander out into the- world in search of some recognized orator will not be necessary to give you a n idea of ¦ what a 1 orator i *; or is it required that the productions of Cicero ; or the speeches of an Ingersoll , sha I be brought forward to make that idea any more cleat .

itjlpOTQMAIu , [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1876

itjlpOTQMAIu , It would seem that wx have a sufficient number of colleges artel universities to supyly the demand for higher education , yet they are contiually increasing in number as the older ones increase in excellence . On Oct . 12 th , a new and important university for higher learn * ing was opened by a lecture from Prof . Huxley . We refer to the John Hopkins University of Baltimore . A remarkable thing about its opening was that no recognition whatever of God was . made . We believe that this is the first institution , either educational or p hilanthropic which has ever been opened or dedicated in this country without prayer . It is natural that wx should cling to the customs of our fathers , and that We should think anything contrary to these is , in a measure at least , wrong . This nation has always recognized the controlling power of some Creator , not as a follower of anv particular religion , but the fact that there is some one power that rules all things . Men who ma...

ENGINEERING AND ARCHITECTURAL NEWS- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1876

ENGINEERING AND ARCHITECTURAL NEWS- The construction of the Darian canal is considered by engineers as quite feasible .- The U . S . Government is about 16 enter into ncgociations with that of Nicaragua through whose territory the canal willpass . If is found that the length will be 1 S 0 miles and can be constructed in about five years . The cost will be immense . It is considered by some competent engineers as the height of folly to build it because of the possibility vvhich amounts to almost a certainty that it will soon be destroyed by volcanoes . During this year , there have been 1 , 970 miles of Railroad constructed in this country against 1 , 150 miles for the corresponding time last year . Railroad engineering is gradually improving which is encouraging to engineering students of our University . A few days since a part of a train on the New Jersey Central ran through the depot into the Hudson River in consequence ofthe alleged failure of the vacuum brakes to work . The Wes...
