"Res Augusta Domi." [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 8 October 1880
"Res Augusta Domi." OFT had we met within the park; I am a sophomore, gay (and dark). She was a " bute," an angel fair, And had the tres chic " baby stare." One day 'twas blowing hard. The gale Tore from her derby hat the veil. I happened by, and saw it fly, And thanked kind Jove that I was nigh. The veil lights at my feet. I stand Erect, nor lift it to her hand; She smiles—waits, wonders " Why ? " Oh fool! /wear tight trousers built by Poole. F. B. H.
The Summer's Races. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 8 October 1880
The Summer's Races. r I A HE second annual regatta for the Childs' cup took place on the Schuylkill, June 28th, and though accounts of it, as well as the other races in which our crews participated this summer, have appeared in the daily press long ago, we think it but right to give an account of them in order that a record may be kept. Our men spent the week before the race in Philadelphia, and Painter and Muller were decidedly under the weather, owing to Schuylkill water, or some other agent, which attacked our crew as it did those which rowed in the Centennial regatta, and everything looked very blue the day of the race. Pennsylvania drew the inside position, we the middle, and Princeton the outside. At the word the crews got off well together, Princeton being somewhat behind, and the race was very even to the half-mile, when the University forged ahead. At the mile, however, our men were feeling better, and from the mile to the end the race was the gamest struggle ever seen on t...
The Flower. [From the German of Goethe.] [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 8 October 1880
The Flower. [From the German of Goethe.] I WANDERED once through a lonely wood, Seeking for nothing, in careless mood. And there in the shade I spied a flower That shone like a star in its quiet bower. I stooped to pluck it, and heard it sigh, " Must I for your thoughtless pleasure die ? " I took it up from that lonely spot And bore it off to my garden plot; In a quiet nook I planted it there, And still its blossoms perfume the air.
The Tale of the Freshman. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 8 October 1880
The Tale of the Freshman. HERE was once upon a time a little boy * who came to college to be examined for the freshman class, having been prepared by his teacher, and told that he was ready to enter. He was a precocious youth, and had been a good deal with larger boys, and so felt that he was in a good many things just a little bit better than the majority who came up for examination, and he therefore said to himself, "Am I not big ! Do I not wear a plug hat on Sunday when I walk on the Avenue ? and do I not also carry a cane ? Wherefore shall I not carry my cane to college with me, that all may know that I am not to be bluffed by the sub-sophomore ? but my beaver I will leave at home, for some truculent 'B3 man might perchance smash it, and then I should be out for an X, for verily it is Dunlap's best." So the youth arrayed himself in gorgeous attire and took his new banger in his hand, and hied himself to the halls of learning, and, verily, his dignified aspect overcame the sub-so...
Vacation Verses. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 8 October 1880
Vacation Verses. ON A STATE'S I'RISON CUT. AH, cursed barber! cursed day That took my flowing locks away, And left me rather like an ape Than human form or social shape. Some call me "monkey," others " Priest," And I am sad —to say the least. Society I cannot see, My dearest friends —till I shall be Once more at large, from apedom free, Until which time consider me A hermit in this great city. Sincerely, C. TO MYSELF. 'Tis said that, by the laws of sweet affinities, The light have dark, the dark have light divinities; But (I who am both light and dark) am troubled Because the number of my loves is doubled. CORNICULAR
Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 8 October 1880
Correspondence. To the Editor of THE SPECTATOR: — T T seems to me at the opening of College to be timely to volunteer a few remarks on the subject of foot-ball. I love the game, and every time I see our team play, I feel sorry to see such fine individual play lost through lack of concerted action. In every game we played last year, the want of practice was glaringly apparent, and it was noticeable how much better our men played in the first half than in the second. I hope there will be a change this season, but the only way to effect it is to have a practice team as well as the regular eleven or fifteen. It is utterly impossible for the team to do anything in the field if they do not have regular practice three or four times a week with a strong " scrub " team, and I hope you will urge on all who care for the game, the necessity of going to the grounds to play against the team, and I think it would be well to let all know that the team is not made up for the whole season, but that e...

ABOUT COLLEGE [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 8 October 1880
ABOUT COLLEGE TT is now the season when the trees drop their leaves and Pop temporarily sports his beaver. PRYOR, '7B, will look quite natural in his new position as tutor. C. E. MANIERRE, 'Bl, has entered the senior class at Princeton. LET the foot-ball men boom for the eleven man team this Fall. THE new clock by Prof. Peck's door, quite enlivens the appearance of the hall. THE railing of the library stairs has been blessed with a new coat of paint. PIARPER was the first 'BO man to marry after commencement. THE summer sun has had a most saddening influence on the new sods placed this spring on the campus. THE new seats invite one to loaf under the trees much more than did the old-fashioned backless benches. TAYLOR, 'Bl, was second in the bicycle races at the fall games of the New York and Manhattan Athletic clubs recently. ANY ONE, wishing to buy a paper "single," in good order, at a low price, may obtain full particulars by addressing Delta, at this office. PAINTER, 'Bl, will not ...
School of Mines Notes [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 8 October 1880
School of Mines Notes HTROWBRIDGE, 'B3, has gone to the Sheffield Scientific School. EMRICH, 'Bl, spent the summer in the coal mines of Coxe Brothers at Drifion, Penn. The summer school of mining also passed through there on their way to Pittsburg. WILL there be less " Angels' food " and more substantial at the lunch counter this year ? HAUSLING was in town a few days ago, having returned from Colorado. THE little vines are doing their best to cover up the mushroom roofed furnace house. MEMBERS of 'Bl are making preparations to present one of their number with a baby cup in honor of an addition to his family. SHELDON, '79, has left the Alta Montana Mining Company, and is assaying for himself at Salt Lake City. He is doing well. THE Qualitative Lab. has been completely renovated during the vacation, and looks perfectly clean in every particular. We trust 'B3 may keep it in the same condition. RUMORS are floating around to the effect that 'B2 will be considerably smaller as regards nu...
The College World [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 8 October 1880
The College World AMHERST: — Interest in foot-ball is very slight this Fall. The seniors and juniors have appointed a committee to organize a Garfield and Arthur Club. The juniors can take Italian and Biology this year. The optional is regarded as "soft." CORNELL: — President White is expected back from Europe in the Spring, when he will resume his duties in the University. New sidewalks rejoice the Cornell student. Prof. W. G.

The Library HINTS FOR HOME READING.' —A series of chapters on books and their uses, by Charles Dudley Warner, M. F. Sweetser, F. B. Perkins, Cyrus Hamlin, Hamilton W. Mabie, Edward Everett Hale, Joseph Cook, Henry Ward Beecher and Lyman Abbott. Edited with an introduction by Lyman Abbott, with which is included a new and revised edition of suggestions for libraries by George Palmer Putnam. G. P. Putnam's Sons. Pp. 147. Cloth. Price 75 cents. HP HE various articles which compose this little volume were originally written for The Christian Union for the purpose of assisting those who wished to form family libraries, and to bring fully before them the great advantages to be gained by so doing. The writers are men of well known ability, and the suggestions which they put forward are worth the attention of all who contemplate forming that most necessary adjunct to a gentleman's house —-a library. "What to Read," "Plans of Reading," "The Art of Reading," and " How to Make Dull Boys Read,"...
Minos Rhadamanthus our Exchanges [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 8 October 1880
Minos Rhadamanthus our Exchanges HP HE exchange man feels better. The summer has refreshed him, and he comes back once more to the office of his paper, prepared to greet all his old friends, and welcome all the new who come to visit him. The callousness has disappeared from his first finger and thumb, and the shears are stiff from want of use, but the joint of the latter will soon become loose, and the new edge will grow dull as the season advances. ALL the old friends will not, we fear, come back again. The Lampoon , that genial, bright, jovial exponent of wit, bade us adieu in the last number we received, though it hinted at the same time that it might make its appearance in the guise of an illustrated paper, independent of college interests, and changed in form. We wish it good luck, for it was the first illustrated college journal in America, and though of late years it has been collegiate chiefly in name, it has occupied a position which is filled by no other paper. A NEW occup...
Shavings [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 8 October 1880
Shavings AT" ALE PROFESSOR.. —The mastodon recently discovered in this city has nothing to do with the minstrels. Your scientific mind is slightly off its first base. WHEN a loafer enters the sanctum of a busy editor, and the editor says, " Glad to see you're back," what does he mean ? " Here is a sketch," said the poet, Unto the Editor gray, " That I tossed me off in an idle hour To pass the time away." " Here is a club," was the answer, In a bland and smiling way, " With which I frequently toss me off Six poets in a day." —Folk I.ore in Chicago. WHY do chickens have no hereafter? Because they have their necks twirled in this. See ?
