SKETCHES FROM CALIFORNIA- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 April 1877

SKETCHES FROM CALIFORNIA- E . B . W . It is asked about the winter here . Imagine if you can , the bright cool , bracing air of autumn—the bright days , —the rain and the fog of the sea coast in Maine , and usually the winds of Illinois—for the wet days , and for all , the foliage and flowers of late summer in Illinois—then you have our winter . On wet and windy days , the air is sometimes of a chilly , damp cold which makes us shiver , and we keep a little fire all day , but oftener have none after dinner until evening , then only to get supper . This is the coldest weather California ever knew . We can have flowers every month in the year by taking a little pains . I have been working in my flower garden to-day . Calla lillies are growing each side of the front gate , perriwinkle and a passion-vine beautifying the front of the house with sweet viDiets at their feet for a carpet . Fuchias , heliotropss , geraniums , sweet peas , sweet clover , daisies , pinks , pansies , myrtle and...

A MITE OF CHINESE RELIGIOUS WOR . SHIP . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 April 1877

A MITE OF CHINESE RELIGIOUS WOR . SHIP . BY JAS . FAULKNER . On ; of the greatest curiosities of California to the Christian , or to the average Missouri farmer , is the dark and mysterious worship of the so called Heathen Chinee . How many of you in the states have heard of Joss immortal fame ? The following characteristics of his Divinity s solemn , religious worship may help to form some conception of the Chinaman s holy performances . The Joss houses of San Francisco are unassuming structures conveniently located . They are open pretty much all hours of the day and night ; are decorated on the inside with Chinese letters , mottoes , prayers , hieroglyphics etc ., and are old } dingy , dark and gloomy institutions , containing no seats for spectators , no pews to rent and no free pews . The most conspicuous object to behold in the mansion which may be twenty by thirty feet , is the J OSJS or god , the image of an overgrown , corpulent , hideous , prolonged pigtailed Chinaman deck...

GENERALIZATION . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 April 1877

GENERALIZATION . BY G . H . B . —Alcthenai Society . Some people are always generalizing . The advent of a new fashion , a change in politics , nay , the casual event of the day is sufficient to draw from them a sweeping proposition , including in its scope far more than the passing cause g ives any warrant for . They never deal with particulars . They let fall generalizations when they talk as the heroine of the fairy story did the pearls . They lay them down for stepping stones , and take a vast deal of pains to reach conclusions b y their aid , to which the particular facts in question would afford a much less circuitous pathwav . They are faithful followers of Aristotleism , and journey from the whole to the parts with praiseworthy assiduity . More often however , the generalize ! - makes his offerings wholly gratuitous , and in dealing with the particular case becomes blissfully unconscious of any distinct connection between it and the proposition previously made . There is som...

' OUR LINGUISTS- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 April 1877

OUR LINGUISTS- w . F . s . —Adelphic Society . In this age of extreme activity and practicability , when life is full of all kinds of work , of all necessities ; when to be able to do a thing rather than knowing how to do it is of greatest importance , we arc wont to look on any wastes as a sin . It matters not whether that waste gives a temporary pleasure or not to the squanderer , the impartial judge will , if he considers the ultimate justness in the case , condemn him as a wrong-doer . You may say that what is a man s own should be of no concern to others , that the possessor has all the ri ght to his property ; but yet , you must admit that each individual owes to society ; -, ll that will help to advance it , all that will lift it to a hi gher plane . No man , whatever his occupation , whether it be that of a student , of a professional man , of a mechanic or a farmer , is absolved from any duty that he , in his calling , can concsive himself bound by , or that it done will pl...

WICKEDNESS IN LARGE CITIES- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 April 1877

WICKEDNESS IN LARGE CITIES- BY w . M . —Scientific Association . It is very often , and from intelligent people at that , that we hear of the great wickedness in large cities . They are called running sores upon our civilization ; stumbling blocks in the way of unwary countrymen ; - a rendezvous for tramps and thieves in all degrees of perfection . If persons making such charges as the above , would only take a second thought , they would perhaps notice that the city is being charged with the worst crimes committed within its limits , but no credit is given for the great benefits the country enjoys on account of these same cities . Every day the newspapers are full of accounts of violence , thefts and other crimes committed , but no mention of the good deeds or the honest labor performed by thousands , of faithful workingmen and women . As far back as history goes , mankind have lived in cities ; the social element in man s nature demands it , and we fine that the nations who advanc...

THE STUDY OF NATURE . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 April 1877

THE STUDY OF NATURE . BY K . K . ii . —Scientific Association . Nature is the sum total of the works of God . The study of nature ib then the study of the handiwork of God . It is the study of the worm upon which we tread , and of the lion which we fear ; of the shapeless amoeba and the perfect man ; of the hidden and priceless wealth of the earth , and of those infinite number of gems which stud the sky , when Science as it exists to-day is the result of their united efforts . From the great warehouse of nature has been drawn the four grand sciences , Botany , Zoology , Chemistry , and Geology . Of these , botany is perhaps the oldest , yet age has not made it weak . Under this one head are placed the flora of the earth . Within the classic pictures of this one branch we find the microscopic fungi and the red woods of California . Here the lily and the thistle are of equal importance . Here the naturalist dwells long and earnestly upon his tiny specimen ; he names its parts ; he in...

Now authorities all agree that the substance here treated of . isof very greatimportance . The mystery searching , experiment loving physicist asserts in learned phrase that it , that is the substance here treated of , is , of all bodies , diathermic .

The physiologist affirms that it is very necessary to the geiius homo , and gives it most honorable mention . The mixture making chemist , ele mentarily inc ined , compounds for it a dignified name , and in the nomenclature of his science writes for it a fitting symbol . .. , It is coupled with our earliest recollections ; for was it not told in our innocent , trusting days of childhoo...

THE PROGRESSION OF MAN [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 April 1877

THE PROGRESSION OF MAN BY C . S . B . —Philomathean Society . The material world is the theater of constant change . By the action of eternal and irresistible laws the earth revolves in its orbit through space in regular and equal periods . By the action of these laws every part of the earth is bathed successivel y in the sunli ght . B y the action of heat the water of the ocean passes upward as an invisible vapor , is condensed into clouds , carried by the winds , set in motion by the same lorce , over the land where , meeting with colder currents of air the moisture is precipitated on the mountain-tops and in the vallies . Massive glaciers are formed which with their immense wei ght p lowdown the mountain sides grinding into powder and carrying into the vallies below , the rocks over which they move . These rocks are converted , by the action of the elements into soil , and this is washed into the rivers and carried into the ocean . Mountains rise from the depths of the sea , and ...

THE COLLEGE BELL- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 April 1877

THE COLLEGE BELL- Dying embers glimmered upon the unswept hearth ; The waning mOon cast spectral forms o er the still earth ; The toothless crone , mumbling , slept : mayhap of life grown weary . And I watched the lengthening shadows , like ghosts of former days . Stalk oe r the polished oaken floor ; leer ghoulish mockery At the heavy burden of care the human heart conveys . Awake ! Awake ! Rend the black veil ! Cast oft the dismal spell . Light ! Light ! Pealed aloud in my dream that old familiar bell ! Upstarting ; the phantoms , shaking their whitened locks , fled : — While I brushed from my brow the cold damp of the dead . Once sigain I seemed to stand as of old in college walls , Where all was bustle and vi gilant , nervous heated strife After light in the atom , the soiil and heaven s great balls , Those onsweeping globes in the skies , bearing God-given life , O Scholar ! O Man ! Delve long , delve deep and delve well ! For Time , the destroyer , is ringing the afternoon bel...

THE VENUS DE MILO- [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 April 1877

THE VENUS DE MILO- Archaeologists and art critics have puzzled themselves with conjectures concerning this statue ever since its happy discovery on the island of Milo . The direction of the arms of the Venus has been the subject of many a learned dispute , and various have been the decisions in regard to her attitude . Dr . Harris , of St . Louis , editor of a journal of philosophy and esthetics , who visited the University during the Teacher s Institute this winter , stated the latest opinion of German art critics , and seemed inclined to accept it as his own .. According to this the Venus formed part of a group with Mars , and was in the act of disarming the God of War . The conclusion thus reached is accounted for by the pose of the statue . The left side of the Venus forms a long , straight line which it is claimed the Greek artist would never have left exposed . Placed in a group this defect could be concealed by the other figure . I copy a portion of the article on this statue...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 April 1877

; ^ RpHTOIKtAEi .-. •Theclaim s of the orator from Monmouth for a share of the . first honor and prize awarded to Mr . Baird at the State contest , at Evanston are receiving some attention from the colleges of the Association . As r a correspondent of the Volantc intimates , it is singular that Mr . Swott should have found in his marking at so liite a day a mistake which entitles Miss Henderson to equal honor with Mr . Baird . However this may be , we cannot see how Monmouth can rightfully claim an equal share of the prize , for , admitting that the marks of the two contestants were equal , the judges musthave then decided between the two according to the rules of the Association . The fact that Miss Hendersons oration overran the time prescribed by rules would have debarred her from the prize . Whatever may be the individual opinion of Ihe members of the colleges concerned ^ the rules must be followed ar . d the decision stand . We apprehend that Miss Henderson s effort was as full...

SCIENCE NOTES . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 April 1877

SCIENCE NOTES . Heig ht of Clouds . —A correspondent writes to Nature concerning the heig ht of clouds as follows : — It has always been a matter of some interest to obtain measurements ct the height of clouds , independently of observations made from balloons or on mountains . During last July and August , I made a series of measures of cloud-altitudes—the first , I believe , of their kind — by photographing the clouds simultaneousl y from different stations . The detail of the process would occupy too much space to be inserted here , but I have reason to believe that the results obtained are not as much as three per cent , in error . The cirrus clouds which I measured varied in height from 22 , 000 to 35 , 000 feet ; massive cumuli from 6 , 000 to 7 , 000 feet . I did not get any good examples cirro-cumlus or stratus . Rain-clouds appeared at all altitudes up to 4 , 000 feet . I hope to resume the measures at some future time . Survey of the Territories . —For reasons beyond the c...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 April 1877

Gas Molecules . —In a communication to the Vienna Academy on the nature of gasmolecules , M . Boltzmann says that they behave like aggregates of material points ( the atoms ) . He considers that in estimating , the impact action of the molecules , we may almost regard the whole aggregate , which we denote as an individual gas molecule , and which may consist of different substances , perhaps even ether atoms , as rigid . It is found that then the ratio of the hent-capacities of the gas must be one and two thirds when the gas molecules have ball-form . The ratio of the heat-capacities will be one and one fourth if the molecules have the form of rigid bodies of rotation , but which are not ball ; and one andone third if they are of any other form of rigid bodies . These numhi rs at least seem to agree so far with those found expert mentally that oiic cannot say that experiment furnishes a contradiction of the theory thus modified . It is further shown that the values experimentally go...

OUR DECENNIAL ANNIVERSARY . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 April 1877

OUR DECENNIAL ANNIVERSARY . All was excitement and expectation for a week or two previous to the i ith of March for it was announced that a large delegation from the State Legislature was to be in attendance at our anniversary exercises . Like the 4 th of March and some other important days , our anniversary came this year on Sunday , and in order to celebrate it and keep the Sabbath and not interfere with class work and perhaps some other excellent reasons , it was decided that our celebration should occur on Saturday the 10 th . By the Friday night previous the pror gramme was fully arranged , the buildings in order from top to bottom , and recitation rooms containing anything of interest to visitors were arranged in a manner to please the eye of the stranger . In short , everything had been as carefully looked after , as it is at a first-class State Fair or a centennial Exposition . Saturday morning the reception committees w r ith the university band went to Tolono where they me...

OUR EXCHANGES . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 April 1877

OUR EXCHANGES . The Hesperian Student for March comes filled with fresh and interesting matter such as we like to see in college journals . The variety of subjects and style of the articles are worthy of notice andjmany of us would do well to learn a lesson from this feature . Searching for a School is interesting and appropriate and by reason of its difference adds to the interest of Cromwell and The South , all of which are well written . We are glad that the editors are agitating the matter of a university printing press .. We labored under difficulties similar to the ones they describe until we purchased our own press and did all Our work . We wish the Student a press and they will soon find students who will do all the work connected with the magazine . We notice an editorial on A Needed Reform which p leads for better qualified teachers in the common schools . There is undoubtedly ; i lack in the qualfications of many school teachers especially in the newIv settled districts :...
