ENIGMA. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1894
ENIGMA. " Sum nihil, aut nihilo suppar: me lingua trucidat, Voce tacente, orior : voce loquente, cado. Me pueri oderunt, odit muliercula. Sanus Me vix ullus amat: quilibet aeger amat. Sacra placent mihi claustra : mihi nox tempus amicum est; Echo nulla, übi sum ; nulla susurrat avis. Me nulli videre oculi, nulla audiit auris. Attamen interdum vel sine voce loquor. Dicere quam nequeo, tibi charta interprete cogor, Oedipe, naturam significare meam. Quae mea sit natura, tibi si dicere possem, Non essem quod sum, destruererque sono." Sante
A QUAINT GERMAN CITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1894
A QUAINT GERMAN CITY. XOT long ago, it was my good fortune to pay a visit to Minister, the chief town of the province of Westphalia. It is one of those old German cities which are little heard of now, but which were famous during the middle ages. There are many towns of this kind scattered throughout Europe, and though few can be considered beautiful, if judged by our standard of beauty, nevertheless they possess a charm of their own for the student of the world's past history. Munster has kept, more than most German cities, its quaint mediaeval character and appearance. It dates from the close of the Sth century, when it was visited by the saintly missionaries, Suitbertus and Bernard, and afterwards by St. Ludger, who became the first bishop in. the diocese formed by Charlemagne. The citv came into great prominence at the time of the Reformation, for the people received the new teachers with open arms. The entire city would, in all probability, have adopted Luther's creed, if it ha...
HONORS AT AN ENGLISH UNIVERSITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1894
HONORS AT AN ENGLISH UNIVERSITY. NOT long ago I was asked to write a composition on this interesting subject: '• How they work for Honoi's at an English University." After I had carefully explored several volumes, and had begun to transmit to paper what I thought I had gleaned from this reading, I found that I had an unintelligible mixture of Dons, Deans, Proctors, Fellows, Bachelors, Wranglers, Senior Optimes, Junior Optimes, Littlegos, Triposes and Cantabs and felt as overwhelmed by such an array of expressions as I imagine a backwoodsman would feel if be were suddenly placed on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. This, fellow students, was my position, and out of this chaos I have endeavored to bring a little order and reason, and to show you how they work for honors in such a famous University as that of Cambridge in England. Owing to tbe impulse given by Newton and other great scientific men, Mathematics is the foundation of everything at Cambridge, and the only way Class...
SOCIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1894
SOCIETIES. THE first preliminary debate of the Fulton Debating Society took place on Friday, October 19th, in the Hall of the Young Men's Lyceum, and was attended by several members of the faculty, and a large number of students. The second was held on Friday, November 9th. The question : " Resolved that independent action in politics is preferable to party allegiance," was then debated in the affirmative by John J. Kirby, '95, and Wm. H. Walsh, '96; in the negative by Win. St. C. Healy, '95, and Patrick S. Cunniff, '97. The two remaining preliminary debates will be held before Christmas, to enable the Society to fix an early date for the Annual Prize Debate should the proposed meeting with Georgetown College take place. The new members this year are all earnest workers and good speakers. A friendly rivalry between them and the old members has raised the general tone of the Society and infused new life into it. The steady increase in the number of students in the higher classes may ...

EDITORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1894
EDITORIAL. THERE is 110 branch of a collegiate education which students in-general neglect so much as Elocution. Not only upon this side of the water, but even from the great universities of Oxford and Cambridge, the complaint is heard that little interest is taken in this noble art. A peculiar aversion to its cultivation, which is equally as difficult to understand as to describe, seems to have taken possession of a majority of collegians and kept them from the acquisition of that art of expression, which is at once useful and elevating. Is it not amazing, when we consider the power which the human voice has to arouse the deepest feelings of our nature, that the science which shows us how to move these feelings, and which was in ancient times so closely studied, should now be almost universally neglected? Why this aversion, whv this apathy to an accomplishment so pleasing and productive of such far-reaching results? Have you ever listened to the delivery of a piece, when the speake...
MY ADVENTURES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1894
MY ADVENTURES. WHEN I first came to my senses, after having been through a series of squeezings and crushings in a book-press, I glanced at my back, and found I had been stamped, " Yenni's Latin Grammar." How proud I felt as I surveyed myself, critically examining every part of my covering, for I looked as neat and new as a silver dollar leaving the mint. The day following my arrival in this busy world, I was placed in a consignment of books for a Boston dealer, and then for the first time I learned of the trials of life, for I was together with others of my kind roughly thrown into a large package, where I was nearly suffocated before regaining my freedom. I was carried into the store, and rudely tossed on the counter, which gave me quite a shaking up I assure you. I next heard a deep-toned voice muttering " here they come at last," and then something loosened, and I was able to expand and get a breath of air. The cord which bound the package had been cut, and the clerk was about t...
DOMI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1894
DOMI. WOMAN'S RIGHTS. To hold the rein She seeks the right. For 'tis her gain To hold the rein. And tho' in vain This woman's fight To hold the rein She seeks the right. A vicious circle the prize ring. PROFESSOR. " Why is Latin called a dead language?" Large boy. " Because we've murdered it." IF Moses was the son of Pharaoh's daughter, he was the daughter of Pharaoh's son. PROFESSOR of Greek. " What does eig come from?" Bright youth. " Water." Whereupon the class falls-a-laughing. A few days ago, a student through carelessness destroyed some property belonging to the lunch-counter, and straightway paid for the same. Here is an example for others to imitate. IT is suggested that a search party be organized at once to hunt up Olaf. History tells us that Stanley entered the wilds of Africa to seek Dr. Livingstone, and why cannot we scour Moon Island in hopes of finding our belated fabulist? CURIOUS student in Mathematics to Professor. " Was Shakespeare fond of mathematics?" Professor....
ALUMNI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1894
ALUMNI. THE thick clouds that have of late darkened the political atmosphere are cleared away, leaving but one graduate of the college in full enjoyment of victory. Charles I. Quirk, '9l, who was the regularly nominated candidate of the Democrats of ward 20 in this city, received a full vote at their hands. Remembering his student days, we can confidently predict that Charlie will distinguish himself as a debater and parliamentarian, and that his career as a member of the Massachusetts house of representatives will he marked by staunch loyalty to those principles of truth and justice which he upheld so manfully during his college days. TIMOTHY W. COAKLEY, 'B4, the only other graduate who received a nomination, made his customary untiring efforts for victory, but was retained for future triumphs. JAMES E. HAYES, the able leader of the Democratic party in the present house of representatives, sought the nomination foi; Senator in Charlestown District; as this was not given him he gall...
CLASS NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1894
CLASS NOTES. '95. During the past weeks the philosophers have been discussing the relative merits of Lord Bacon's system of induction as compared with the methods of Aristotle. The class is congratulating itself on the fact that it has at last found "a method in Philosophic Madness." The members of this class are taking deep interest in exploring the unknown kingdoms of Datisi and Frisesomorum. '96. The class of Rhetoric has formed a literary society which promises to become one of the most successful features of the year. It is the special purpose of the society to treat of oratorical subjects and to give a training in eloquence. Meetings are held on Monday afternoons. The following officers have been elected: President, James P. Warren; Vice-President, Charles J. Martell; Secretary, Arthur W. Dolan ; Treasurer, William J. Campbell. At the first meeting, essays were read by James Phalan, Charles J. Martell, Francis Cronin and declamations rendered by Herman Dierkes, Simon Cox and D...
ATHLETICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1894
ATHLETICS. Boston College and St. Anselm's College played 011 Varick Park on October 20th, before about 500 people, and the latter won by a score of 22 to o. The score would probably have been much lower had not the St. Anselm's been assisted by Hovey, '97, and Doucette of Harvard, as well as two other outsiders whose names were carefully concealed. Had not the boys of St. Anselm's employed outsiders in their game the way would have been opened to many pleasant meetings in the future. The gen- tlemanly conduct of our athletes in all their games and their remarkable sell" control under provoking circumstances were praised by all. The score of the second game was 32 to o. With regard to the third game, the Globe says: "The most exciting and hardest fought game of football ever played in Whitman was that seen by Soo people on the Park grounds, between the Whitman A. C., and the Boston College team. The only score was in the first half, when Slade made a magnificent run and scored a tou...
EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1894
EXCHANGES. THE current number of Our Alma Mater , an annual journal, published by the students of St. Ignatius' College, Riverview, Sydney, Australia, has just reached us. It is an admirable book of over a hundred and seventy pages, and is replete with matter interesting to the general reader. The excellence of its varied contents speaks well for the literary training of the students in the leading college of the Australian Federation. The plan to issue the journal more frequently will meet with universal approval. THE September number of the monthly magazine, University Extension , contains some ably written papers which clearly demonstrate the good work carried on by the American Society for the Extension of University Teaching. St. Mary's Chimes enters our sanctum this month wearing its habitual poetic halo with most becoming grace. We trust that the rosy-tinted views which all its contributors have of things mundane may never change by contact with the prosaic side of life. Ix t...

COMMUNICATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1894
COMMUNICATION. October 22d, 1594. To THE EDITOR OF THE STYLUS : Dear Sir:—ln the Domi column of the last issue of the college paper appeared a ridiculous translation, the author of which is described as a " quivering small boy." It is evident that this term, " quivering small boy," would be applied to no student outside of the Rudiment and 3rd Grammar classes. The Rudiment classes have not yet seen enough of Latin to enable them to give the translation which the Domi editor has discovered, and members of 3rd Grammar A can by no means be called small; so that the conclusion is that this " quivering small boy " is a member of 3rd Grammar B. Now, Mr. Editor, no boy in 3rd Grammar B ever gave such a translation. He would have known the difference between the verbs ttascor and fero: and would never have been guilty of using the noun rus for fiatria. lie would have known, too, that lacerti and arma are not synonymous. Therefore, Mr. Editor, we, the members of the class of 3rd Grammar B, r...
STYLUS PRIZE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1894
STYLUS PRIZE. THERE was an error in our last issue with regard to the STYLUS Prize. The announcement should be as follows: "A friend of education, a member of the class of 'B4, offers a prize of twenty-five dollars for the best competition essay printed in this paper." The attention of all competitors is called to the following points : 1. The subject is left to the judgment of the writer. 2. The essay must not exceed 1,500 words —about five pages of foolscap. 3. The judges will be three former editors of the STYLUS. 4. The essay will be judged by (a) its literary excellence, (b) the originality or treatment of the subject. 5. Each one may compete as often as he chooses. 6. The competition will be closed on May 1, 1595. 7. Writers competing should mark their essays "Competition Essays." 8. The writer must sign an assumed name, and send the same with his own to the Director of the Editorial Staff. 9. We look for excellence not quantity.
