A VISIT TO THE N . Y . HERALD BUILDING- BYS . CS . —Alcthcnai Society . A member of otif party being acquainted with a son of one of the associate editors of the N . Y . Herald , we had the pleasure of visiting • he building , and being admitted into its sanctum sanctorum , while in New York City lust summer . We left our boarding house , in Brooklyn , about ten o clock one evening ; and crossing the ferry entered the great busy city . Busy still ; and brilliant with the glare of li ght , until we reached Broadway ; Here all was silent , the great wholesale houses closed and dark , and the night watchman already going his rounds .

PERSEVERANCE- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 January 1877
PERSEVERANCE- BY it . M . « . —Adelphic Society . Among all the qualities that give success in life , perseverance stands the first . With its force the greatest obstacles have been overcome , humble genius has achieved unthought of success , and rich-born talent has been far outstripped . In this Nineteenth Century , —on this American soil where the highest posts of honor and of gain are open to all , perseverance is preeminently the necessary virtue to the people . We , as students , are apt to be discouraged . The mountain-top of success awes us by its distance . The steep mountain side wearies lis already with its promises of toil ; and we almost feel inclined to sit down upon some mossy stump at its ba * e , and not strive for what it seems we can never obtain . Others have won success , why can not we ? But they were born to prosper , we « think . How little we know of their journey up the mountain . Unheeded , at first , they slowly climbed . Others , as they passed by in the...
BY THEIR WALKS YE SHALL KNOW THEM . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 January 1877
BY THEIR WALKS YE SHALL KNOW THEM . BY R . n ., c . —Adelphic Society . This is a passage which is symbolical not only of our manner of life , but is literally a truth . The character of our mind is often made . as apparent in mere mechanical actions , such as handwriting , manners , or carriage , as in the more important characteristics of nature , such as our habits , conversation or intelligence . . ¦ • One of the most plain-spoken features of our character and individuality consists in our style of walking . It . roaj be thought this is very slight grounds on which to judge a person s character , and it indeed is , though it may plainly show his disposition . By judging from the habitual manner in which a man walks , we can to some extent tell his occupation , whether he is a farmer , a mechanic , a soldier or a sailor , and to a slighter extent some ofthe leading traits of his character . We can tell whether he is a lively , wide awake man of the push sort , or of the slow and ...

We do not hesitate to say that it has made m eiyjiette . r , contributed to the . progress of knowledge and the enlightenment of the race . The first thing necessary to get any good from criticism is to cultivate the spirit of toleration , that we may accept without irritation any criticism however adverse it may be to our own opinion . Self com ccit : must be put aside and we must consider the opinions of others as good ; as our own . , We suppose that no man ever lived who was not liable to make mistakes , commit faults ,, and who was not in reality * a very uncertain quantity , but there have been , many who have considered themselves , almost infalible , and their ire was at once aroused it anything to the contrary was mentioned . Such must undergo a . course , of training in order to receive any profit from candid criticism . We...
