WHY THE ROSE IS RED. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1895
WHY THE ROSE IS RED. An angel, so the olden legend tells, To earth’s fair garden flew, And plucked a white rose from the mossy dells Where flowers grew. “Sweet emblem of my Queen, thou ne’er shalt know Fading nor petal crushed, At Mary’s feet I’ll lay thee down.” And lo ! The flower blushed. John Joseph Hurley, ’g/.
HISTORY OF THE ANGLO-SAXON PERIOD OF ENGLISH LITERATURE, A. D. 450-1066. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1895
HISTORY OF THE ANGLO-SAXON PERIOD OF ENGLISH LITERATURE , A. D. 450-1066. (Competitive Essav.) “ The charm dissolves apace ; And, as the morning steals upon the night, Melting the darkness, so their rising senses Begin to chase the ignorant fumes that mantle Their clearer reason.” Shakespeare. The history of our language corresponds to the history of Rome, that “Mistress of the World,” who, in the ages that have melted into the realm of silence, towered above her rivals in the vast resources of her power. Within her arms she welcomed with gracious mien the derelicts of foreign climes, infusing into their hardened characters the life-blood of patriotism, and transforming these untutored, turbulent hordes into the greatest empire that graced the annals of ancient history. Our own language presents a triumph equally amazing, but we proudly boast that “ Thus far our fortune keeps an upward course, And we are grac’d with wreathes of victory.” Embracing in its folds verbal offerings from ...
THE SUNSET ON THE SNOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1895
THE SUNSET ON THE SNOW. Over the fields of snow, Glad sunset streams, Wiih gorgeous, changeful glow, Over the fields of snow. Gemlike the high banks grow In the sun-beams, While o'er the fields of snow Gently with foot steps slow, As twilight gleams, In revery’s bliss I go, Over the fields of snow. —Francis J. Dorc , ’&lt;?/. An exceedingly interesting meeting of the Agassiz Society was held Wednesday, December 19th. Essays were read on the star-fijk, coal, and cork. The life of Agassiz and the foundation of the association were also reviewed in a well written essay. The members display great interest in the subjects assigned.
ECHOES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1895
ECHOES. In days of boyhood I roamed the wildwood With heart as light as The ocean’s foam ; No thought of sorrow Did I then borrow From hours so bright that I called my own. On tree-tops swinging The birds were singing Their sweetest carols Of joy most dear ; Yet silence golden In the chantry olden Away from discord, Was to me more dear. I’ve heard the breaking Of the deep sea making Its low moan ever In wild unrest; And dark pines sighing, And zephyrs vieing With the night-bird cooing In its downy nest. But ah! more thrilling, My sad soul filling With sweeter music Than mortals hear, Is the silence golden, In the chantry olden, Away from discord, With my Saviour dear. Giles E. Kennedy , 'g6.
CATHOLICISM AND SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1895
CATHOLICISM AND SCIENCE. (competition essay.) It is strange that in this enlightened age men can be found who persist in believing that the Catholic Church is the inveterate enemy of scientific progress. The utter absurdity of such a notion will be evident to all who give the matter unprejudiced consideration. In this last part of the nineteenth century, when books are so easily accessible to all, no excuse can be offered for those who believe in this myth which owes its origin to fanaticism and its sustenance to bigotry and prejudice. The fact that there are so many victims of this delusion is but an exemplification of the oft-quoted adage, “ None are so blind as those who will not see.” Without detracting in the least from the credit due nonCatholics for their magnificent contributions to science, we can say with all truth that much of the credit for scientific progress belongs to Catholics. A brief survey of their most important achievements will suffice to show that Catholicism ...
HENRY HALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1895
HENRY HALL . “ Now, see here,” said Joe Davis, as he glowered savagely upon the trembling boy beside him, “you know that if Hull is on the field, he is sure to be the hero of the day. I want him kept away and you must see to it that he is not there.” “ I am well aware that he will get all the attention,” answered Frank Hoves, “ but I cannot do what you ask. It’s so mean and dishonorable.” “You must do it,” angrily ejaculated Davis, “ I say von must. Do you hear? I have a little secret of yours, and you’ll either mind me or I’ll tell the Rector on you.” “Oh ! don’t do that, Joe, for pity’s sake. I’ll do anything if you’ll only promise to keep that secret.” “ Very well ! See that you make no mistakes. An revoir! ais our French professor sometimes says. I thought that would bring him to his senses,” chuckled Dayis. “ It’s a good thing that I remembered his little theft; mv knowledge has proven useful.” He turned and strolled toward the field, where the College eleven were hard at work,...
ATHLETICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1895
ATHLETICS. Since the end of the football season, athletics in the College have been passing through that period when there seems to be nothing that demands particular attention. But with the opening of the new year, new resolutions are in order, and it may not be out of place to make a few suggestions to the various members of the Athletic Association that they, too, may be brought to make new plans for their future guidance. In the first place, candidates for the honor of representing our Alma Mater in any athletic contest should not be unmindful of the fact that none are born athletes, and that excellence in this branch depends entirely upon practice. We have plenty of promising material in the College, and the advantages for developing it this year have been far greater than in previous seasons. The gymnasium has been generously placed at our disposal; a general manager of athletics from among the faculty has been appointed ; the reverend President has shown a keen interest in al...

EDITORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1895
EDITORIAL. There is one trait of character which every college-student should strive to cultivate in the highest degree, and that is, the quality men call honor. It would seem unnecessary here to explain that honor is that fine sense of the difference between right and wrong, that exact discrimination between what is c&gt; lawful and what is unlawful, between what separates the man of character from the knave. Honor may be said to be a general virtue, for its influence is felt in almost every action we do. It springs from an intense love for truth, for the man of honor desires his words to be a faithful portrayal of his inward sentiments, his deeds the fulfilment of his promises. And what is truth, but perfect harmony between the thought and the outward expression of the thought, between the promise and the action corresponding to the promise. Where perfect harmony reigns between these two elements, there we have truth, and this harmony is always the aim of the man of honor....
DOMI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1895
DOMI. “ Under the sun There’s nothing new; Poem or pun, Under the sun, Said Solomon, And he said true Under the sun There’s nothing new.” —Love in Idleness. A happy New Year to all. To the average student the greeting is appropriate at this time, when happiness means a great deal after coming forth unscathed from the fire of a mid-year examination. Taken from the Tempest. “When is a man’s stomach like the letter Xin mathematics?” “ When it isn’t constant.” The answer to the enigma in the last issue is “ silence.” Man}- must have been struck speechless as they endeavored to fathom its meaning. Professor —“What does the Latin ‘ climax' mean?” Freshman —‘‘ Ladder, sir.” Whereupon an idea flashes across the pensive student’s brow, and he quietly asks, “Please, sir, does the English climate (climb it) come from climax?” A distinguished correspondent sends the following to the Domi editor: “A poor negro, who had many friends on account of his sterling qualities, died in January. A ladv fr...

ALUMNI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1895
ALUMNI. It becomes our painful duty to chronicle the death of another Alumnus, Rev. Timothy J. Healy, ’Bl, who died at Lake City, Minnesota, on December 13th. His death adds another to the many which have come to the class of ’8 r, and is greatly regretted, especially by the older Alumni. Father Healy was about 35 years of age, and attracted attention everywhere by reason of his fine physique and cultured manners. After being graduated, he entered St Mary’s Seminary, Baltimore, and was ordained in due course at the end of his theology. About ten years ago, together with several other Boston men, he volunteered for mission work in the West, and was received by the Bishop of St. Paul, Minn. For the past seven years he was pastor of a church at Lake City, in the Diocese of Winona, and had endeared himself to the people of all classes by his zeal for their spiritual welfare. Funeral services were held in Lake City on December 15, Bishop Cotter, the ordinary of the diocese, officiating. ...
THE CHRISTMAS PLAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1895
THE CHRISTMAS PLAY. The Christmas Play is one of the leading events in the life of Boston College Students. This year Shakespeare’s “ Tempest” was chosen, which as Coleridge well remarks, ‘‘is a specimen of the purely romantic drama, in which the interest is not historical, or dependent upon the natural connection of events, but is a birth of the imagination, and rests only on the co-aptation and union of the elements granted to or assumed by the poet.” There is no need to give a synopsis of the play because all students of literature know well the story of “The Tempest,” how Prosper©, the rightful Duke of Milan, buried himself in his books, leaving the government of his duchy to his faithless brother Antonio, who, in course of time seized the throne and placed Prospero with his tiny daughter, Miranda, afloat in a leaky skiff to perish on the broad seas. Drifting on to an enchanted island, they found there two spirits, one a spirit of the air and guardian of innocence, Ariel by name...
CLASS NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1895
CLASS NOTES. ’9s- The class of Philosophy has finished its course in Major Logic and begun the study of Ontology. On December 8, 1594, the class visited Marlboro’ in a body to attend the funeral of their late member Francis McGee. They were accompanied by Rev. Francis Fullerton, Professor of Sciences. Out of respect to the memory of their well beloved classmate it was voted to postpone the annual banquet until January 24. Two members of the class have been appointed as speakers for the prize debate, William C. Healey and John J. Kirby. John Stinson paid a short visit to his brother at Frederick, Maryland, during the Christmas holidays. Fr. Fullerton is taking advantage of the late fine weather to resume his lectures on “ Static Electricity”, which are illustrated by many beautiful experiments. ’96. The meetings of the literary academy have been discontinued until the opening of the next term on account of the examinations which are monopolizing at present all the energy of the membe...
