THE STYLUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1883

THE STYLUS. fust as the sounds of the Christmas chime Are passing away from the earth, Tremulous still with the truth sublime, That crowns a midnight to brighten all time With the light of the wondrous Birth, — I come—but a lowly and humble thing, Will you give me a welcome true? Over me waves the beautiful wing Of the Mystery whose Gloria's echoes ring, In gladness for me and for you. For sake of the time with mysteries sweet, For sake of the crib and its Child wilt greet A coming as humble as mine? For sake of the Faith that holdeth the pen, For the glory of God and the true peace of men In the letters of every line Wilt welcome the message I bring with me? And say to me: "I have a place for thee? Tell me your story —sing me your song, Come as a friend comes looked-for long,— Out of the din of the world's rude throng, Where the True is shy—and the False is strong — Enter and speak to my very heart And talk to my mind in the tones of truth Not in the artful accents of art But frank...

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1883

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN Why should Boston College lag behind? All the leading Institutions of learning in the land are making an editorial effort; this is ours. We are sanguine of success. Ours is the motto of the Alpine lad, "Excelsior!" Yet we are inexperienced editors, and should " somebody blunder." is it not " human to err, divine to forgive?" To a casual observer of human nature, it may sometimes ap pear strange that the man whose labors are confined to the domain of thought and its expression, should be longer remembered than he who has accomplished for the world some great work of hand ; that fame should favor him who writes well rather than him who does well; that often the little street-arab can tell you the author of " David Copperfield," while the name of the inventor of the cotton-gin, is as unknown to him as the founder of the Chan dynasty ; that every word-weaver in a magazine, may hope for his share of renown, while the silent worker at the loom, whose weaving does mo...

HERI ET HODIE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1883

HERI ET HODIE. In these clays we hear many complaints that boys and girls give too much time to studies from which they will derive little benefit in after-life ; the justice of such complaints, must lie acknowledged in some cases, but by 110 means in all. Although some studies are absolutely necessary to redeem a man from total ignorance, there are others which are requisite in order that one may appear at all intelligent concerning ordinary matters ; among these may be mentioned physics and chemistry, even a very limited knowledge of which presents advantages obvious to all who will give a few moments to the consideration of the question. We live in a very progressive age ; the locomotive, steamboat and telegraph have been familiar matters as far back as we can remember ; and the telephone, phonograph and electric light have already lost all novelty. All men, from pole to pole, are now one family in fact, as well as theory ; distance itself has been practically annihilated ; and t...

BOSTON COLLEGE ALUMNI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1883

BOSTON COLLEGE ALUMNI. It is a source of satisfaction to the projectors of the STYLUS to know that many pleasures will attend their undertaking. Already many graduates of Boston College, on hearing that the students were endeavoring to establish a college journal, have expressed their approval and given us words of encouragement. These kindly wishes constitute not the least of our pleasures. We thank them and hope that the STYLUS may be a means of awakening glad thoughts of days gone by. To all of us old times make the poetry of life : "the past will always win A glory from being far And orb into the perfect star We saw not when we moved therein but to few of us does it bring fonder recollections than to the college graduate. To his school days he looks as the happiest period of life. At the mere mention of those days what feelings of srratification arise when he recalls his successes ; what o o feelings of satisfaction for the friendships formed, of love and respect for the profess...

CHRISTMAS AT THE IMMACULATE [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1883

CHRISTMAS AT THE IMMACULATE A flood of joy flows from cheerful, smiling Christmas as it comes apace, softening the torpid hearts of all Christians ; for the advent of God's natal day is a sign of universal awakening, and the Catholic Church encourages her children to be foremost in this throwing oft' of spiritual indifference. At our Immaculate, superb decorations, fine music, and grand ceremonies, are the usual visitors on these great feasts ; and this year especiallv, the rich preparations far surpassed the pomp of former days. The altar with its myriad lights and lovely flowers, told us at once, as we entered the church, that this precious setting of flowers and lights, surrounded the one thing most sacred in our religion, the Holy Eucharist. Column and arch were held in close embrace by symbolic figures wrought of flowers and leaves, and the words "Gloria in Excelsis Deo" formed of living flame, gave the key note of our rejoicings 011 this day. The sanctuary was covered with flo...

TWO DAYS IN SALT LAKE CITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1883

TWO DAYS IN SALT LAKE CITY. We came in sight of the City of the Latter Day Saints just as the sun had arisen above the long range of the Wahsatch Mountains, and was shining down upon the Great Salt Lake, making the clear blue water still more beautiful when contrasted with the snowy peaks of the distant mountains. The City of the Salt Lake is not situated 011 the shore of the Great Lake, as a glance at the map would seem to indicate, but upon the slope of the mountains twenty miles distant. The situation is magnificent. The mountains surround the City on three sides, rising gradually from the bright green valley into wild rugged peaks, covered by the eternal snows. On the fourth side is the lake itself, shining like a turquoise set in pearls. The City, as I have said, is 011 the slope of the mountains, and every street in it has a gradual decline towards the lake ; taking advantage of this fact, the inhabitants bring water from the mountains in a large open ditch, and instead ot usi...

THE OLD TEAR AND THE NEW. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1883

THE OLD TEAR AND THE NEW. The old year has gone, and with it have departed all those pleasant and happy times we spent during its course. Like the cheer and hospitality of wavside inns that refresh the traveller on his journey, and strengthen him to endure the dangers he may encounter on the way, — the pleasant moments of the departed vear encouraged us in the battles of life. But, Old Year, why should we mourn for you? You brought us joy : but vou mixed it with bitter grief. You wafted high our hopes and enticed us into perilous seas ; but, like a ship seeking a haven of safety, lured by a deceptive light, you cast us upor treacherous shoals, and blasted our brightest hopes. You tort from us our greatest poet, philosopher, and most eminent men in different walks of like ; and you gave us nothing in return bul news of famine from our kinsfolk afar, and signs of wai from our neighbors across the seas. So depart, Old Year depart! Old Year, you have gone. But, perhaps, I have judged yo...

DEBATING SOCIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1883

DEBATING SOCIETIES. Two organizations that perform good work among the students of the College, are the Senior and Junior debating societies. Those who are entitled to become members of the senior society, belong to the senior classes ; while from all the remaining classes the junior society chooses its members. The senior society is one of old standing, and has had as it its members many of those who have become distinguished graduates of the College. This year, it has in its ranks many talented and enterprising students, who are determined to advance, as much as possible, the fame and influence of their organization. For the prize debate to be held next June, the members, whom the society has chosen, are :Messrs. Foley, Ryan, O'Brien and Hurley. Its present officers are : E. X. Fink, S.J., President; P. J. Farley, Vice-President; F. A. Cunningham, Rec. Sec. ; T. J. Hurley, Cor. Sec. ; J. G. Foley, Librarian ; J. J. Ryan, Censor. The junior society was organized some five or six ye...

BATTALION [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1883

BATTALION The Battalion of Boston College was reorganized in the year ISSO, for the purpose of enforcing physical exercise. Its good results appear in the marked improvement visible in the health and the manly bearing of the students. In the college year 'Bl -82, under the energetic direction of E. X. Fink, S. J., it attained its highest success, which was greatly enhanced by the prize drill of June last, justly pronounced one of the most interesting entertainments ever given in the College. This year the drill is under the direction of F. Barnum, S. J. The reorganization, 011 account of the very large number of new students, was by no means an easy task ; but owing to the exertions of the director, and the unwearied efforts of the instructor, Capt. M.J. Callahan, the drill and parades are showing the effect of good work. The Battalion roll includes the students of all the classes of the College except Philosophy. The drill for companies takes place weekly, but Battalion dress-parad...

THE CHRISTENING. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1883

THE CHRISTENING. To be exact, it was not the christening, but rather the protracted deliberation over an appropriate name that wearied us. Yet the question has gone forth : " What is there in a name?" Yes, "in the hollow shell of a name when all the kernel is gone?" Possibly, it is nothing more than a nominal appendage, not even hinting at one's local habitation ; yet we have a strong impression that many a dwarf has lost inches beneath the dead weight of his cognomen. Scores of names were suggested by our friends, ' our cousins and our aunts but each one as we tried it on, so to speak, produced an oppressive feeling, a sort of presentiment of some impending catastrophe, as fatal as the weighty cognomen of Peter proved of old to the first born of the Chillingly line of Exmundham. Finally, in sheer desperation, BOSTON COLLEGE STYLUS was selected. We are the exponent, the oral term, as it were, of the Boston College pen. Be that our name; and let it be the ambition of each student to ...

SODALITIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1883

SODALITIES. There are two Sodalities in the College which number about one hundred and twenty students. Seventy of these belong to the Sodality of the Immaculate Conception, and the remainder to that of the Holy Angels. The Sodality of the Immaculate Conception is intended as a means to incite the students to greater piety, and especially to devotion to the Blessed Virgin. St. Stanislaus is their model. The pious students of the senior classes are eligible for membership. At the meetings, twice a month, the office of the Blessed Virgin is chanted by the members, and then follows an exhortation from the Director. On the occasion of their annual reception, early in December, Fr. M. J. Byrnes, S.J., addressed the two Sodalities, showing how, not only in theory, but in practice, it is the duty of every young man to honor and love the Mother of God. OFFICERS. J. F. X. O'Conor, S. J., Director; J. W. Cotter, Prefect; W. J. Browne, First Assistant; T. A. York, Second Assistant. The Sodalit...

A BOY IS A BOY, ETC. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1883

A BOY IS A BOY, ETC. Oh, fond of old, the warrior bold To boast a fearless laddie ! To-day, the slight and girlish wight Is the loved one of his daddy. My model boy is one whose joy Is manly, frank and all that; He may be wild, and a wilful child, But a boy's a boy for all that. A laughing lad is not so bad As many people think him; He's not a sleek and arrant sneak Because you can't hoodwink him. His greatest crime is oftentime A fault —and mighty small that! Though free of will, remember still, A boy's a boy for all that. He loves the woods in all their moods; The sea his soul entrances. With what a greed he loves to read Old Beadle's dime romances! Go, preach to him of Seraphim, Of Cherubim and all that! 'Tis death and din he revels in; But a boy's a boy for all that. Do all you can; the little man Will show his inclinations, He will be Kane, to plough the main On Arctic explorations; He will be Pope, or nurse the hope Of earning fame, and all that, It is his way ! Do what you ma...

DOMI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1883

DOMI. There are about two respectable moustaches around. Father Ryan has been at the College for the last month. Geometry class is getting assthetic in colored crayons. The examiners are coming : Ora pro nobis ! Many items of interest were crowded out of this issue. Rev. A. M. Mandalari, S. J., professor of philosophy, Holy Cross, was at the College a few days last week. The scene-shifting at the Christmas plays reflected great credit on Harry Marden. There is a laudable society in First Rudiments whose object is to help on those who are somewhat behind. Many students have shown a laudable zeal in securing subscribers. We wish to mention the most energetic in our next issue. Who will lead the list! Edward A. McLaughlin, who received the first degree granted by Boston College, was lately elected clerk of the House, Massachusetts Legislature, by an overwhelming majority, receiving 231 out of the 233 votes cast. Our philosophers are sometimes non-plussed when called upon by the Profess...

REASON. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1883

REASON. '■'■ The vision, and the faculty divine Of all the faculties with which man is blessed, reason is the brightest gem in the glittering crown of endowments. With the light of reason he searches the dark, hidden recesses of earth, and with a swiftness surpassing that of the eagle he explores the secrets of air. Within his mind is embraced the universe; and his reason acknowledges no barrier but God. There Reason ceases, and Revelation begins. As the thin silvery mountain stream basks and revels in blooming fields, and ever flowing becomes greater, until it mingles with the ocean ; its gentle ripples, at first, scarcely audible, at last become the booming torrent. So Reason, in its infancy, dwells in sunny lands, and talks, with trembling voice, of "trifles light as air." After a long sojourn amidst these pleasant scenes, it speaks in deeper tones of the problems of life ; and, at length, joined with Revelation, its voice rings with strength and power. What a precious gift is re...

WAIFS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1883

WAIFS. A MODERN NOVEL. Preface. Our age is the birth-hour of the review and the novel. Real ones were not written till now, Rasselas and the Vicar notwithstanding, because not needed. But are they not, reader, characteristic of the thought of the day? We move by steam, and hear from afar, and see by electricity. What, unless the novel, could keep pace with such vitality ? The novel presented in these pages was written in one night, and thus whatever else it may lack, it possesses that one great excellence of modern work, rapid execution. The Author. Introduction. The ancients did not dream of writing novels ; a fact the world deplores. Had they written this class of work their real and social life would be better known to us. Their barber shops and circus filled the functions of newspaper and novel. But alas ! the barber shops are closed, and the yellow sand of the arena scattered to the four winds of heaven. Does any one doubt that the novel is the form of thought that pleases the ...

A RELIABLE OPTICIAN. A well-known oculist of this city maintains that more harm than good is done by the use of glasses, because of the unintelligent dependence which most people place upon careless or incompetent opticians. Few opticians have a full assortment of lenses to meet the requirements of both the old and new (metric) system of measureing, and many imperfect lenses, whose imperfections can be discerned but by the closest examination of an intelligent artist—are sold to a customer, which may do one's eyes serious harm after a few weeks' wear. One of the editors of the "Post," who has worn glasses made by the best known opticians of Boston, lias pleasure in recommending Mr. A. J. LLOYD, NO. 7S Tremont Street, as being the best he has tried. Mr. LLOYD has enough knowledge of the eye to be ranked as an oculist; is most careful in assisting his customers in choice of glasses, and can give recommendations from our best known citizens.— Boston Post.
