Three Maidens. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 6 April 1880

Three Maidens. (A very mournful Ballad, after the manner of Charles Kings ley.) THREE maidens were riding fast through Newark, Swift ran the train as the sun went down ; Three maidens were bound on a " jolly lark," Bound for a ball in old Penn's great town. For girls are charming, and men will forget, And our check system is not perfect yet — These maidens soon will be moaning. Three maidens made joyous with talk and with glance, In the parlor car, many young men gay ; They talked of the ball, they pledged for the dance, And fast ran the train in the waning day. For girls are charming, etc. Two maidens sat weeping, their feelings were blue, The third had borrowed a ball-dress gay ; She danced at the ball, but the other two Didn't go, for their trunks had been lost on the way. For girls are charming, and men will forget, And our check system is not perfect yet — Long past is the ball and the moaning. J. B. T,

Philolexian. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 6 April 1880

Philolexian. meeting was called to order at 8.15, p. M., April 1 st; the President in the chair. As this was the meeting at which the Philolexian Oratorical Prize is annually contested for, the usual order of business was suspended, and the Society proceeded to the oratorical contest. The first speaker was Mr. Moore, whose subject was " Horatius and the Captive." Mr. Bull followed with " Earl Chatham on the Employment of Indians in American Warfare." Mr. Mills delivered " Spartacus," and " Patrick Henry's address to the American Congress " was next rendered by Mr. Nies. Mr. Livingston closed the list with "A Plea for Republicanism." After a recess the Hon. Abram S. Hewitt on behalf of Professor van Amringe and himself, who were judges for the occasion, said: "All the speeches we have heard this evening were very commendable, but they all showed a lack of training. If any one of the speakers had gone to a good teacher of elocution he would have taken the first prize in preference to ...

Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 6 April 1880

Correspondence. Tc the Editors of THE SPECTATOR : A N idea has occurred to me, which I publish in your columns for the benefit of the college at large. The text-books that we use in our four years course form an item in the sum total of college expenses which might easily be avoided, or, at least, considerably lessened. I start with the supposition that the majority of men do not care about keeping their books after they have finished using them : as things now stand, they dispose of them either by "private sale," or by gift, to succeeding classes ; and, in this way, books are handed down from class to class. Now, it seems to me, that the convenience and advantage of both buyers and sellers would be promoted by the establishment of a species of book mart, in college precincts, for exchange and sale. A small advance could be charged on books sold, and a slight fee required for those exchanged, which would render the business of substantial profit to anyone who would undertake it. I f...

School of Mines. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 6 April 1880

School of Mines. regular meeting of the Chemical Society was held on Thursday evening, March 25th. Mr. A. H. Elliott read a paper on " Sulphur, and Sulphur Acid Estimation." This was followed by a discussion on "Artificial Diamonds," by Messrs. Pitkin and Vulte. No more " specials " will hereafter be admitted to the school, as, since the late excitements in mining, so many have applied as to crowd out the regular students. It has become a case of the "survival of the fittest," and future "specials " must wait till the accommodations are such as to give room for all. Now is the time for the men in the " Mines" who intend to row, to make up their minds to do so. The river practice has already commenced, and if the crews intend to get well together, an early and constant attendance, to practice, will be necessary. KALBFLEISCH, 'B2, is confined to his house at present, owing to sickness. WE are glad to see that the Chemical Society appears to have started up with new energy. At the last...

The College World. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 6 April 1880

The College World. AMHERST : Now the announcement comes that the juniors do not recite German at 6.30 A. M., as has been stated. College closed on March 29th, for the spring vacation. The Student says, " What this college wants, it would appear, is a little more Conservative Liberalisticism." The Glee Club is on a tour through the western part of this State. The Student Board has been photographed. H. G. Smith, formerly of 'Bl, is to be one of the incoming Board. R. C. Smith, another of 'Bl's former members, is also an editor.

Our Exchanges. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 6 April 1880

Our Exchanges. r I "HE Yale Record comes to us in a most gorgeous cover, with the pensive owl seated on the fence. The old board says good-bye, and wishes all its friends (it has no enemies) success. Our Inter-Collegiate Press Association receives a parting whack, but we do not mind, for, as the Columbiad has it, " Better be damned than not mentioned at all," and so, even though the Record does not approve, it is a good deal of satisfaction to know that last year's editorials have such a permanent effect. THE K. M. I. News has come to us, and though the heading reminds us somewhat of Ku Klux proclamations we have seen, still we found something to interest us in its pages. " CadetLife " tells us how the school is carried on, and from it we should judge that the principal is quite a character. The poem called " The Rainbow of Life " halts somewhat in its feet, but is good in tone. " The Soul" is rather deep for a school paper, and the News will do well if it tries something less grave...
