THE HIDDEN GEM. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1895
THE HIDDEN GEM. ON the evening of May Bth Cardinal Wiseman's "The Hidden Gem " was played by the younger members of the College. The attendance was only moderate, and we cannot help contrasting the energy shown in the selling ot tickets for the Xmas play, with the almost entire lack of interest which most of us had for the success of " The Hidden Gem." To say that this play was by students of the preparatory department will not excuse us. In the first place, even the members of the under-collegiate classes are much to blame for their general listlessness. Secondly, actors are not found fit for the stage, even in this " touch-the-button " age. An actor must be educated in his art. He is a slow growth, the outcome of infinite pains. He cannot be trained in a few weeks. It seems to me we older students ought to take this view of the matter seriously, and help our younger brethren. After all, you were "preps" once, yourselves, and so was I. I did not like to be neglected then, and I do ...
THE HIGHER CHARGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1895
THE HIGHER CHARGE. " May God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath himself willed to raise thee to the dignity of the Pastoral office, bedew thee with chrism and with hallowed ointment and make thee faithful in the richness of spiritual blessing : Whatsoever thou shalt bless, may it be blessed, and whatsoever thou shalt sanctify may it be sanctified, and may the laving on of this anointed hand be profitable in all things unto salvation." Prayer from the Roman office for the consecration of a Bishof. The it th of March, 1566, will be long tenien - bered in the Xew England annals of the Cathobc church On that day Father Williams was duly consecrated fourth Bishop of Boston. The ceremony took place in St. James' church, for it was fitting that the solemn elevation and the episcopal dignity should be witnessed by the loyal peop'e for whose spiiitual welfare the devoted Priest had toiled so faithfully. The whole of New England then belonged to the province of New York, and, a...
THE ADVANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1895
THE ADVANCE. WHAT a wonderful advance the Church has made in this land of the Mayflower. From the humble Cathedral on Franklin street, to the lofty edifice which crowns the bend in that busiest of Boston highways ; from the handful of Catholics which greeted the saintly Cheverus in 1S10, to the magnificent number of who here to-day own allegiance to the chair of St. Peter; from the one diocese with its poorly equipped clergy, to the splendid Archiepiscopal See with its six suffragans and its Catholic population of 1,363,000, what a wonderful history that is ! The infant child of the early part of the century has become a sturdy man, almost a giant, one is inclined to say, and bids fair to astonish think- ing men bv his magnificent proportions and his strong, active life. In 1523, we are told, there was but one priest in the city of Boston, one in Maine and one in New Hampshire, with one poor school, and nine churches as the sum total of the Catholic houses of worship and learning in...
PHILANTOS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1895
PHILANTOS. When e'er I probe the teeming haunts of men, In vain I strive some giant soul to find, Some creature of surpassing wealth of mind, To whom my lesser self might, there and then, Grant excellence.-—ln vain ! In vain ! and when I shun the hurtling crowd, not fancy-blind, But seeking truth with earnest heart and kind I find but vanity within my ken. O death ! O life ephemeral! O stuff By poets and philosophers esteemed As the profoundest reason, which a puff Of this sound theory must dissipate : "Not for these puppet shows great suns have beamed But all to brighten our created state." Charles J. Marfcll, 'gb.
THE STATUE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1895
THE STATUE. IN golden legends of the olden days, The tale is told of Florimund, the wonder, A sculptor working thoughtless of the thunder That worldly-wise bestow as meed of praise, But aiming only in ideal flight To carve a statue perfect as he might. Upon a day the statue stood complete While Florimund was young: and kings admiring Sent treasured gold and promises, desiring To own it as a most artistic feat; But Florimund would only answer : " Nay ! It is not perfect: come another day." Day after day they came, year after year, Yet ever found him at his post of duty, Each moment adding some detail of beauty : But when they said : " Perfection sure is here !" Then Florimund would coldly answer : " Nay ! It is not perfect, come another day." But when the years were gone, upon a day, Thev found the sculptor resting from his labor; Then cautious each one whispered to his neighbor, " 'Tis perfect now—he cannot say us nay;" But Florimund would only shake his head : " It will not perfect...
THE INTERCOLLEGIATE DEBATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1895
THE INTERCOLLEGIATE DEBATE. THIS great event, which had been heralded far and wide, and was the centre of intense interest here among all lovers of study, came off on the night of May ist. Never before has such a distinguished audience been gathered together in the college hall, and never has the hall worn such a festive appearance. In fact, we cannot praise too highly the artistic decorations of the evening. The walls were concealed by bunting of blue and gray, old gold and maroon and the Stars and Stripes. The corners were set off by finely painted shields, while the stage was draped in the colors of the two colleges, and "adorned with exquisite ferns and flowers. The debate was opened by an introductory speech from James T. Connolly, of Holy Cross. His remarks were brief and to the point, and delivered in such a manlv, straight-forward way as to captivate entirely the audience. It is not our intention to give an analysis of the various speeches. Georgetown having, as we think, th...
"FRIGORA MITESCUNT ZEPHYRIS." [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1895
"FRIGORA MITESCUNT ZEPHYRIS." When peaceful spring mounts over hill and dale, And 'neath the sunshine melts the glistening snow, And May's first robin warbles in tbe vale, And in the grass the flowers begin to blow, And biting frost the fields Hath fled, and winter yields, And vernal-time its gentle power wields, From mount to valley green The echoes joyous sing : How beautiful a queen Art thou, O Spring! When the sun with fiery darts smites the ice mount's peak, And down the mountain slopes swift torrents hurtle, And song birds sing, and honey garners seek For hidden sweets mid rose and twining myrtle : When from their airy seat Murmur the wood-doves sweet, And earth and sky one joyance-song repeat. From mount to valley green, The echoes joyous ring, How beautiful a queen, Art thou, O Spring! —Herman J. Dierkes, 'p6.

EDITORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1895
EDITORIAL. IT is not often that one whose life has been consecrated to the service of the altar is spared to witness the fiftieth anniversary of the day 011 which the sacred chrism first anointed his hands and he heard the behest to go forth and preach the glad tidings of God's message to man. It is, consequently, with feelings of deep emotion that we, in the name of the Students of Boston College, offer to his Grace our warmest congratulations and our sincerest wishes that God's choicest blessings may he lavished in all fulness upon the cherished guide of this diocese. Boys are not inclined to effusiveness, hut even a hoy's heart is thrilled at the memory of the noble deeds of one who has been a spiritual ruler and a light to men through five decades of years. " To-day fifty years at the altar Thou art as of old at thy post; Tell us, O chasubled soldier, Art weary of watching the Host? Fifty years Christ's sacred sentry, To-day thy feet faithful are found, Where the cross on the al...

During the recent floods which deluged north-east-ern Massachusetts George had to "swim" for his news. As we go to press preparations are already making for the annual banquet of the alumni association and we are told that the outlook is most promising for a repetition of the successes of the...
LOOKING FORWARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1895
LOOKING FORWARD. IT is rather too. much to expect that all young men on their way through college will have unalterably selected their future career and will shape in sympathy with it, their studies and conduct. To determine one's lifework is no trifling matter. It requires a thorough and accurate knowledge of oneself, of one's powers and limitations, of one's character and aptitudes. There is needed a careful study of the requirements of the different professions to ascertain the qualifications they demand, the real nature of the work, and the powers of mind, and the habits and tastes essential for success. Then these callings must be examined in a cold, practical material that the opportunities for advancement or their absence or infrequency may be disclosed. Such severe and candid introspection, correct analysis, and worldly calculation are to be found only in company with maturity and experience. But though the choice of a career may with prudence be deferred until the young man...
THE RIVULET. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1895
THE RIVULET. The gurgling rivulet, glad and bright. Flows on its way to the rolling sea; With blossoms and pictures of cloud-land bedight, It ripples and whirls in its laughing glee. Through the happiest day or the dreariest night. Kissed bv the boughs of the willow tree. The gurgling rivulet, glad and bright. Flows on its way to the rolling sea. It dashes adown the boulders' height. Or winds o'er the silver sands of the lea, Soft as a shadow or wild bird's flight. Babbling and eddying merrily, The gurgling rivulet, glad and bright, Flows on its way to the rolling sea. —Frank J. Dore , '97. To all devoted papas, and fond mammas we offer the advice to make the coming Summer as delightful as possible for the poor college student whose days have been harrassed by unsightly visions of Greek roots and Trigonometrical formulas.
THE ARCHBISHOP'S SUFFRAGANS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1895
THE ARCHBISHOP'S SUFFRAGANS. While it is not the intention of the present issue to treat of matters not directly concerned with the Archbishop, still it would not be fitting to pass over in silence the distinguished men who rule the other portions of the Archdiocese of Boston. The first one to claim our notice is the venerable Bishop of Burlington, Rt. Rev. Louis de Goesbriand, born at St. Urbain, in Brit- tany, France, on August the 4th, ISI6. This diocese was erected in 1553, and comprises the State of Vermont. The Catholic population at present numbers not quite 50,000, a marvellous increase from the little flock which welcomed its first Bishop 011 November 6th, 1853. Catholic education in the diocese has been cared for by the Christian Brothers,the Oblates of the Sacred Heart, the devoted Sisters of Providence, the Sisters of Mercy,the Sisters of the Holy Cross and the Sisters of the Congregation of Our Lady. Three years ago the weight of years forced the Apostolic Dr. Goesbrian...
THE STREAMLET. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1895
THE STREAMLET. "LOQUACES LYMPHAE DESILIUNT." —HOR. 111. 13. Out from its secret spring, Over the lea, Ever meandering On to the sea, Lost in the shady glen, Bright on the plain again : —• So coursed the streamlet, its way, full and free. Noiselessly gliding now Silver sands o'er, Kissing the willow's bough Shading its shore; Then over stony bed Babbling it onward sped,— Hasting to join the great ocean, it bore. Now with its bosom wide Turning the mills; Rounding the hillock's side, Joined by a rill; Sweeping the village past, Stately it flowed and fast, On to the briny waves hurrying still. O when first forth it gushed Fresh from the earth, Like liquid gems it rushed Sparkling in mirth. Ah, as it greater grew, Stained was its virgin hue : Purest the flow where the rock gives it birth. So are we hurried yet, On to the sea, Each life a rivulet, How long to be? But as we onward flow, May we e'er purer grow. — Nearing the ocean of eternity. —Y. D. K. ' 9 j.
A CALL TO MAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1895
A CALL TO MAY. Listen, then, O Spring, nor linger On thy charmed way, Pity thou the prisoned flowers Aweary for the May. The trees within the forest, May will clothe anew; Bring choirs of happy songsters And skies of clearest blue : Bring fields of dappled daisies With clear dew-drops wet, And hide in sun and shadow The purple violet. Listen, then, O Spring, and hasten On thy charmed way, Pity thou the prisoned flowers Aweary for the May. Con. P. Murphy, 'g6.

THE SEMINARY. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1895
THE SEMINARY. IN a life so fruitful in great achievements as that of Archbishop Williams has been, it is generally not an easy matter to point out some one work and say : "Behold the greatest of his labors! " Since all the works of such a career are great, we are apt to regard them all at one glance merely, and rather to admire the general effect of vastness, of solidity, of faithfulness to a single sublime purpose, than to examine in detail the particular parts which go to constitute the whole. Yet an intelligent appreciation of a man's activity must rest upon just such a scrutiny of his labors. And taking this view of the Archbishop's ministry, there will be found one of his achievements which, with no disparagement to any or to all others, must be regarded as pre-eminently his own, and that one is—the Seminar} - . It holds this position both because of its own intrinsic importance and because of the especial affection with which its venerable founder himself regards it. " Dimidiu...
MAY-TIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1895
MAY-TIDE. Danceth the sunlight over hill and valley, And silver streamlets are purling musically, While the blithe birds in mead and green-wood alley Welcome the glad May. Gone are the jewels sparkling in the white snow, But in the meadow and on the sun-kissed height grow Nodding king-cups, and daffadillies bright glow All through the glad May. Black care and sadness wane, and carking sorrow, Like to the night before a sunlit morrow, And all our days new light and borrow From the glad month, May. Give to the May-tide all our hearts' fond greeting; Hail to the May month 1 Thou art all too fleeting. — List! in the fields charmed Nature is entreating : Tarry, sweet queen May ! Frank J. Dore, '97.
THE CATHOLIC PRESS OF THE DIOCESE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1895
THE CATHOLIC PRESS OF THE DIOCESE. WHO can fully describe the wonderful power of the Press in these days? It shapes the opinions of men, spreads abroad teachings of every description, corrects errors, and makes the incidents of every day life known throughout the land in a way that would have startled our quiet, retiring forefathers. But inasmuch as error is always on the alert to diffuse its unhallowed vagaries, there is need in every intellectual centre of efficient, high-toned and judicious journalists who, while communicating knowledge, know how to separate the chaff from the wheat. This is peculiarly the work of tlie Catholic Press. For the present is an age in which reading is the rule rather than the exception in all classes of society, whether rich or poor. This state of affairs has been brought about not so much by a general thirst for knowledge, as by the profuseness of cheap reading matter, which is flooding the country. Newspapers and worthless novels are almost as plent...
THE POWER OF MUSIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1895
THE POWER OF MUSIC. (COMPETITION ESSAY.) THE strange power of music, both vocal and instrumental, and the influence it has had in shaping the world's history, presents an interesting subject for study. The mythology of the ancients teems with legends in which this mystic power is made the moving spirit. History, both sacred and profane, furnishes innumerable instances of the same nature, while, in every-day life, scenes are constantly enacted which tend to illustrate that innate charm and peculiar influence which music possesses. This ready submission to music's sway cannot be regarded as the characteristic of any single nation alone, or of any one class of people. It seems, rather, to be inherited in man. Savage, as well as civilized people, have been known to yield to this allconquering monarch, and the crime-hardened profligate as well as the virtuous Godfearing man has felt and acknowledged its influence. The human heart is a keyboard whose chords are set in vibration by sounds ...
