DOLCE FAR NIENTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 September 1883
DOLCE FAR NIENTE. There are crickets in the garden. And they "cheep,—cheep;" And their wheedling whispers creep, Without even asking pardon, To my listless ear, and coax me (How their monotone provokes me!) Off to sleep. There's a zephyr from the ocean Stealing nigh,—nigh,— Soft as mother's lullaby ; Like some wizard's magic potion, All my sober senses robbing Till mv stupid head keeps bobbing At the sky. Yonder oscillating tree-tops Wierdlv rock an infant Cyclops In the clouds: Babv's eve the moon-light seems, And a drowsy lid its gleams Partly shrouds; And the weary stars are blinking, And I myself am winking, And I fear, —I fear I'm sinking Into dreams. T. TV. C., 'B4. Before taking his departure for the South, Rt. Rev. Monsignor Capel made an address to the students in the Lecture Hall of the College. Upon being introduced by our Rev. President, 1 the distinguished Prelate was received with a storm of applause. For nearly an hour he enchained the attention of his audience by his...
OUR HISTORY AS A STUDY. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 September 1883
OUR HISTORY AS A STUDY. " I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past."— Patrick Henry In reading' the lives and works of the great statesmen of the o o past, who may be justly called the brightest ornaments of civilization, we find that all. without exception, bestowed no inconsiderable portion of their time upon the study of history. Take, for example, Burke, who. both as statesman and orator, has rarely been equalled, never surpassed. The most careless reader of the works of this truly wonderful man cannot help noticing the intimate acquaintance with the history of almost everv nation, which they display. There was no measure of government proposed for Bnrke's consideration which he could not illuminate as well by the light of history as by the brilliancy of his own extraordinary mind. He is only an example ; but. to use an old expression, u ad uno disce omnes ." Moreover, those legislators of whom I speak, have more than once affirmed and shown to the satisfaction ...
THE SOLITARY'S GUEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 September 1883
THE SOLITARY'S GUEST. Ambrose, the saint, as he was named Piously, when men spoke of him. Sat by the door of his hut. in the cool Of a summer eye, when the light was dim. Not idly sat; but plied his craft, No matter how tired his fingers were, With weft of baskets of wicker-work, Since sultry noon and mid-day prayer. For, years agone —three decades and more— He had vowed, in his prime, to the Crucified, To labour and pray, alternately, In the desert, from dawn until eventide. " Surely, the Lord hath witnessed my pledge, Body and soul to Him I owe; And if these hands are now weak," he said, " I must keep them steady until I go." " Surely, the gracious Lord will please To render these failing hands their meed. I lath any one faithfully served Him yet, And found Him not, in hour of need?" Thus, till an hour after fall of sun, Monk Ambrose praved and wrought the while; And when he lifted his head, the light Was faint on the waters of distant Nile. What was it crossed the light, but then...
CONFESSIONS OF A DUDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 September 1883
CONFESSIONS OF A DUDE. Homilies on the character of the dude have, of late, formed the chiet employment ot bland old gentlemen in spectacles who sit in an easy-chair on the watch tower, and are fidgety and without purpose until they have had a shot, with a reform popgun, at folly as it flies. The explosions have been received, as was natural, with tremendous applause by the lemon-hearted cynics ot our time. But. though the reformers' work has been praised, the person to be cured has seldom profited by their labors. " 1 he remedy," they say," is simple—Reform. No one can force a man to be a dude against his will. Hence, it is as easy to abandon the follies of dudeness as to give up the practice of smoking tobacco, or of imbibing intoxicating liquors." But hold, remorseless censurer, thou man of mighty voice and little culture, who art happily unscathed by any malady, and, ere thy choler rise at the name of dude, apprehend first what manner of thing it is. Then may compassion soften t...
CONSOLATIONS OF A MYOPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 September 1883
CONSOLATIONS OF A MYOPS. My name is De Flubdrub. I am an hereditary myops. Perhaps there is no malady —if malady it be—more common than short-sightedness, and vet popular knowledge on this peculiar topic is anything but widely diffused. This proceeds, maybe, from the fact that the near-sighted individual caymot reconcile himself to the idea of posing before the public, and. like a stump-armed beggar of the curb-stone, holding up his infirmity to the scrutiny of curious eyes. Indeed, it was only after a bitter, internal struggle, terminated by the sacrifice of mv natural delicacy on the altars of philanthropy and science, that I consented to publish this brief sketch of my experiences and sensations as a myops. And first let me observe that, for aught I know, my case may be exceptional, and the phenomena it presents, irregular. Xot having investigated the subject in all its bearings, I refrain from pronouncing on this point. As I have already intimated, myopia runs in the Norman and ...
IN THE EAST WIND. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 September 1883
IN THE EAST WIND. It is a blast from the North East. It comes up from the sea, and it brings the sea with it. It sweeps down the street with the shriek of a hurricane, with the wild laugh of a maniac set at liberty. With a deafening roar it rounds the street corners and plunges along the sidewalk. It is mad with joy, and it wishes that everybody know the fact. Its intoxication is like that of the Eastern despots, a matter for all to fear, but for none to oppose. It is for the time being the monarch of all it suiveys. Heboid it now ! Its baleful shadow hovers over the city, and laughs at the helplessness of the people. How it delights to twist the dripping folds of its mantle around the housetops ! How maliciously it dashes little showers of spray through the open windows, and how it laughs to hear the angrv chambermaid slam down the shutters ! But what cares the East \\ ind It has come like boisterous pirates of old to enjov its periodical revel on shore. It has left the ship in the...

Boston College Stylus. PUBLISHED 81-MONTHLY. TERMS OF SUBSCRIPTION : Fifty cents in advance, post-paid. Single copies, ten cents. ADVERTISING RATES: Business cards,(one inch and a half,) $1.25 for each insertion, or $6.00 per year, including a copy of the STYLUS during that time. Additional space furnished at reasonable rates. The STYLUS is published by the students of Boston College as an aid to their literary improvement. As the paper is, for the most part, devoted to matters which may not prove interesting to the general reader, it must look for its support, chiefly to the students and graduates and their friends. These, we trust, will need no exhortation to extend to us their patronage. Address, BOSTON COLLEGE STYLUS, 761 Harrison Avenue, Boston, Mass.

EDITORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 September 1883
EDITORIAL. Were it not for an excess of modesty, the STYLUS would now declare itself an unparalleled success. It would enumerate the causes of its prosperity, and, elated by its good fortune, would even hazard some advice to other college papers which have failed to make the impression they desired. But, as has been already said, pndor vetat. The time-honored " casual reader" must have perceived this modesty in the STYLUS since the verv beginning of its existence. He must have noticed that it seldom speaks in plurali viajestico , and that it has never attempted to force new principles down' the throats of its readers. For though it recognizes the power of the press, yet it is of the opinion that a college press can never succeed in reforming the world. Another mark of its modesty is this,—it has never set itself up as a model or perfection according to which evenother journal in the land should be fashioned. On the contrary, it has always been conscious of all its faults, and has en...
DOMI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 September 1883
DOMI. Omnino ! Where, O, where is that base-ball nine? The "Ambulance Corps" of the Battalion is very small this year. Under its new Director, J. M. Colgan. S.J\, the choir is progressing rapidly. Query. —Why are the students of Boston College so conservative in their views of late? Prof. S. R. Kelley has resumed his lectures on Elocution, and the class display a sincere appreciation of his work. Fr. Brand, S.J., is back again at Boston College, and, as of old, directs his energies toward the maintenance of order. We would respectfully ask the Chemistrv Class to give us the symbol for the mystic fluid retailed in the gymnasium as coffee. The men of'B4 miss the familiar face of their old-time classmate, J. D. O'Doherty, who left Boston for Grand Seminary, Montreal, Sept. iSth. Messrs. D. P. Smith and O. M. Sheridan, 'S3, are studying medicine in New York. Mr. H. J. Molloy.

EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 September 1883
EXCHANGES. I he Sentinel is the first of our exchanges to present itself. We cordially welcome it as ot old. and teel assured of its prosperity. \\ e are sorry to learn that the Scholastic is not appreciated at home. The students of Notre Dame, or of any other college for that matter, cannot afford to lose the opportunities of improvement which are generally afforded bv a college paper. This is a "paper age." and college graduates, more than anv other class of people, ought to be able to wield the pen. For the students ot Xotre Dame we can imagine 110 better means of attaining this end than by accepting the invitation of the Scholastic to write, write, write. A catalogue of the Society of Alumni of Georgetown College is at hand. It is. 110 doubt, a pleasure to all graduates of that institution to know that the Society of Alumni and the Alumni Association are now united under the former title. We rejoice at the good fortune of our sister college, while we deplore the iact that Boston...

Carroll; Instructor of Postulants, G. A. Lyons; Sacristan, M. J. Corbett. The officers of the Sodality sincerely trust that the number of members this year will be even larger than heretofore. When the benefits accruing from membership are so great, and the duties imposed so few. it is strange indeed that any student of the College should hesitate to join the association.

THE SPHINX OF ICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 September 1883
THE SPHINX OF ICE. The following autobiography is the translation of a manuscript picked up among Alaskan Esquimaux by whom it was held sacred as a talisman. How they obtained it, must ever remain a mystery. Through ray maternal uncle, the skipper of a sealer in the North Pacific, it drifted into my possession: and a fortunate familiarity with Dutch, the language of the original, enables me to produce a scrupulously faithful version of a narrative, the revelations of which cannot but prove of thrilling interest to the scientist and general public. Translator. CHAPTER I. I In vain I vex my soul with queries as to my motive in committing these memoirs to paper. Some vague longing, it must be, to review my past —to sketch the Self that has been mine, till I recognize the features, and calmly scan their lineaments as I would those of another. And so I unbosom myself to solitude arid silence ; for it were more than madness to dream that this record will ever meet the eye of my fellow-man...
