A STREET-CAR INCIDENT.—A FACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1895
A STREET-CAR INCIDENT.—A FACT. THE other day, I boarded an electric car bound for South Boston, and succeeded in reaching a seat without measuring my length upon the floor. Scarcely was I seated, when two old fellows, apparently laborers, got in and planted themselves opposite. They were very unkempt, very ragged, very much under the influence of John Barleycorn, and very happy. One was extremely fat, and as he swayed to his seat a moment before, I had some fears that he might deposit his ponderous proportions in my lap. But I escaped without even a collision. His eves bulged out, his mouth described a crescent, and altogether I thought he was a most disreputable object; but he seemed perfectly happy and oblivious to his surroundings, except for an occasional leer. The only commendable thing about him was his unfailing good humor. O O O His companion was of a different type, and, apparently, had not indulged so freely, or, at least, he showed it less. He, too, was ragged and toil-wo...
THE MONROE DOCTRINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1895
THE MONROE DOCTRINE. THE Monroe Doctrine is generally looked upon, by the average American citizen, as the most essential feature of the fundamental policy of our government. The Cuban insurrection and the Venezuelan difficulty have afforded miJch talk about this measure, as well as the position which the United States has taken in regard to it. The popular mind, however, has but a very crude notion of its true meaning, if we are to judge from the headlines that appear from time to time in the newspapers, or from the high sounding "jingoism" which is heard from blatant talkers in political times. Various and diverse are the interpretations which have been given. For a proper understanding of this declaration, therefore, it is necessary to turn hack the pages of history to the very inception of this measure, and study how it was understood and applied by the men to whom the destinies of the nation were entrusted from time to time. At once we are brought hack to the presidential term ...
A MOTHER'S GRIEF. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1895
A MOTHER'S GRIEF. One evening in passing a cottage I stopped by a hawthorn tree, Entranced with a voice that seemed sweeter Than the voice of a mortal could be, The voice was that of a woman, Who sang, at her distaff and wheel; She sang of the deepest of sorrow, That human affection can feel. But the tones of her grief brought before you A heart full of hope and of love, As the face of a prophet, in sorrow, Is bright with a light from above, Though wrung to the core with affliction, She was glad as an angel, I wis. Her song I do not remember, But its trend and burden was this : — " Cark and care Are the lot of man ; They grind and wear, They rend and tear The heart of man. By hope and prayer, We'll gladly bear The doom of man." Desirous to treasure the story Of that woman's cross and her crown, I hied me forthwith to the threshold, And enquired the road to the town, A single glance, — and the story Was plainer than words would have told. 'T was well, for I could not have asked her A...

EDITORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1895
EDITORIAL. You can not put an old head on young shoulders, nor make a boy write like a man, nor a beginner like one who is finishing his course. Hence it were unjust to expect from boys in the lower classes the maturity of judgment which should come from the upper. But then the question arises: should the lower classes be represented in a college journal, while better compositions may be had from the higher classes? The answer must be determined by consulting the principal purpose of a college paper. The main object of such a publication is, in our opinion, to foster a taste for English vviiting in all the classes, the lowest as well as the highest. Hence, it will not do to exclude narratives, descriptions, letters and the like, on the ground that they are immature or, at least, far inferior to what may be had from the upper classes. If boys have to wait till they reach the end of their course before they see their compositions in print, the college paper will have comparatively lit...
SHOULD A BUT HAVE WINGS? [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1895
SHOULD A BUT HAVE WINGS? 3001 COMMONWEALTH AVENUE, BOSTON, MASS. To the Editor of the Stylus. DEAR SIR : — As I do not know Professor Huxley's address in the other world, I can not send him a private letter, and I must therefore have recourse to a public one. A boy friend of mine, who is a Catholic and a student at Boston College, thinks that a letter in the STYLUS would sooner or later meet the eye of the lamented professor. I am not sure that I am quite correct in speaking of eyes, which have been closed forever in death. Please don't laugh at me, as my companions do. for using long words. I know no others; and I am writing just as Aunty and my tutor have taught me. Hoping you will print the letter enclosed, I remain, Your little friend, Willie Oscar Cooke. To Professor Huxley. DEPARTED SIR: — I am only a lad of ten, and an orphan at that. I live with my aunty on Commonwealth Avenue, and I have four tutors : one for music, one for drawing, one for French, and one for the English b...
THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A BICYCLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1895
THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A BICYCLE. I WAS born in Hartford, Conn., in 1893. When I first became conscious of my own existence, I found myself the youngest of a large family. I was close by the sheltering side of my kind old mother, Dame Tricycle. My brothers, of all sizes and patterns, were scattered around the room ; while my father, a very tall man of dignified appearance, leaned against the wall, and surveyed his family with apparent pride. At a window that looked out upon the busy street stood old uncle Velocipede, whose aged frame and venerable appearance made him an object of great interest to the passers-by. One night, after the keeper had gone, and all was quiet, my father told us that our happy family was soon to be broken up. There was to be an auction sale the next day, and we should probably never meet again. Sure enough, on the following day, a great many people gathered in the room, and one by one we passed under the auctioneer's hammer. In a few days I was in my new home....
DOMI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1895
DOMI. POETRY OF FOOTBALL. With a lusty shout A big boy comes out; Both his trousers and jacket are clean : There's a crash, a cry— With a coal-black eye He's brought back scarcely fit to be seen. Rev. Father Rector has returned after an absence of two weeks, part of which was spent in retreat, and part in taking a much needed rest. Father Doherty, the prefect of schools, visits the different classes about once a week. In translation he recpiires pure, idiomatic English and a .variety of expression. Smart Boy (in Physiological Psychology) : "I don't think the doctor will be able to come to-day." X.: "Why?" S. B. : "He forgot his brain yesterday." Professor (in Physics) : "What is the meaning of C. G. S. ?" Student: "Couldn't guess, sir." Rev. Thomas I. Gasson, S. J., Professor of Rhetoric, gave the catechetical lectures in the absence of Father Rector. Rev. James A. Doonan, S. J., Professor of Philosophy, opened the lectin e course of the Catholic Union of Cambridge, Mass., with a le...
ALUMNI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1895
ALUMNI. The recent state campaign brought political honors to three of the graduates, one of whom, Richard Sullivan, '7B, was elected to the Senate. There have been several former students at Boston College who attained this honor, but Mr Sullivan is the first graduate to do so. Charles I. Quirk, '9l, has been reelected to the lower house by the Democrats of ward twenty, and James H. Leary, 'B9, appears in public life for the first time as a successful candidate for legislative honors. He will occupv a seat in the lower house this winter as a representative of ward five. Of course the nomination of Hon. Edward J. Flvnn, 'Si, for Secretary of State was intended merely as a mark of esteem, the Democratic party in M assachusetts being hopelessly in the minority at present. Already the murmurs of opposition to Edward A. McLaughlin, '72, the popular clerk of the Massachusetts House of Representatives, are being heard on every side. Should the Republican members decide to make political t...
ATHLETICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1895
ATHLETICS. At the first meeting of the B. C. A. A. held Thursday, Sept. 12, the following officers were elected: Stephen A. Bergin, '96, president; James T. McCormick, '98, vice-pres-ident; Joseph F. Collins, '97, secretary; Albert C. Mullin, '97, treasurer; Robert F. Waul, censor; Herbert J. Mahoney, '96, Arthur J. White, '98, and James J. Redican, '96, executive committee. Hugh M. McDermod, '97, Manager of B. B. C. ; Herman J. Dierkes, '96, Manager of Properties; Joseph F. Collins, '97, Manager of Track Athletics. The resignation of Joseph P. Lawless, '96, manager of Foot-Ball eleven was accepted, and Francis J. Carney, '98, was elected to fill the vacancy. At a special meeting of the Athletic Association held Thursday, Sept. 19, it was voted to place a foot-ball eleven in the field. The matter of having a field day with Holy Cross College was laid on the table. Ever since his election to the office, Manager Carney has devoted himself, with characteristic energy, to make this year...
MORAL COURAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1895
MORAL COURAGE. When first I quit the Sunny South, My a was like an adze ; But as further north I flew, It broader still and broader grew According to the fads. In Baltimore I was half a calf; In Quakerdom a whole one; In Gotham town they set me down For a mighty queer and droll one. Though Boston is my favorite haunt, And I am gay and jaunty, I cannot call my maiden aunt, Nor even dub her aunty. I have not grit to do it, And verily I rue it. And yet I have a dozen others, Both on father's side and mother's, Who are just as prim and gaunt: And so I really can't, In justice can't. — Sunny South.
CLASS NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1895
CLASS NOTES. CLASS of '96. The philosophers have every reason to feel proud of their first specimen as it reflects great credit on them, as well as on Father Doonan, and proves very satisfactorily that the commendations of the class, by Father Rector, are fully deserved. The specimen was given before the Rev. Fathers Gasson and Fargis, and also before the Junior Class. It is our painful duty to announce the death of Mr. A Dierkes, the father of Herman Dierkes of this class. His family has our sincerest sympathy. A large delegation from the class attended the funeral. Class of '97. Death has visited the homes of two members of '97, also. Jeremiah O'Brien's father and Michael Cary's mother dying one just after the other. Delegations, sent by the class as a manifestation of its sorrow, attended the funerals. The meetings of the Literary Academy have been resumed and these officers were elected. President, Jos. P. Walsh; Vice-president, Jos. F. Collins; Secretary, D.W.J. Browne; Treasur...
THE FARMER BOY AT COLLEGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1895
THE FARMER BOY AT COLLEGE. ONE fine summer afternoon Jack Stevens and Frank Codie were out riding in the country. Their fine carriage and span of horses made a great impression on the countryfolk, and as the boys passed by they laughed gaily while heads popped through the open windows and figures presented themselves at the doors. Stopping before a house which seemed little better than a log-cabin, they asked a boy, who was standing in a doorway, for a drink of water. The boy entered the house and immediately returned with a tin dipper, which they received with a rather sneering laugh at the thought that they should be presented with such a vessel. These things, together with certain other actions, were not unnoticed by the farmer boy, and he clearly saw that their manners were not as stylish or polished as their turn-out. The boy catching a glance of the letters H. R. on a pin which Codie wore, asked them, in a tone of surprise, if they went to the college of the Holy Redeemer. "Ye...
EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1895
EXCHANGES. ONE by one the old friends we were accustomed to hold such pleasant intercourse with last year, are returning. They all look pretty much the same, save perhaps for a little added dignity which their extra year gives them. We hope in the future, as we have in the past, to spend many pleasant hours with them. It is consoling to read the many kind words which have been written concerning the late Father Fulton. It seems wherever he went he left the stamp of his great personality after him. Men who have long been battling with the world remember him as a man of a great mind and a great heart. Here in Boston, especially, his memory will always be held in fond remembrance. The Mt. St. Mary's Record , for October is, as usual, both interesting and entertaining. "Woman in Primitive Culture " is a thoughtful paper, and forcibly recalls to our mind the striking contrast between the true woman and that remarkable combination of masculinity, effrontery and calico the Jin de siecle wo...
SOCIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1895
SOCIETIES. WITH his characteristic energy, the Moderator, Mr. Daniel J. Quinn, S. J., called the members of the Fulton Debating Society together 011 Friday, September 13, for the semi-annual election of officers. Each passing year, since the society was first founded, twenty-seven years ago, has brought its measure of success, and the members, one and all, are determined that the coming year shall prove no exception to the rule. This means much when the glorious record made last year is taken into consideration, but if the earnestness and eloquence displayed by the members in the few meetings that have been held, be any criterion, a record-breaking year may be looked for. The elections passed off smoothly and resulted in the following choice: Air. James P. Warren, '96, President, Air. Hugh M. McDermod, '97, Vice-President, Air. Michael J. Carey, '97, Secretary, Air. Charles J. Alaguire, '9B, Treasurer, Air. Francis A. Brick, '96, First Censor, Air. John H. Mullin, '96, Second Censor...

O FONS BANDUSIAE. Horace, Bk. III. Ode IJ. O FONS Bandusiae, splendidior vitro, Dulci digne mero non sine floribus, Ci-as donaberis haedo Cui fi-ons turgida cornibus Primis et venerem et proelia destinat, Frustra : nam gelidos inficiet tibi Rubro sanguine rivos Lascivi suboles gi - egis.

Fount of Bandusia crystalline clear, Rare wine is your due And flowers ; to you Shall be given a kid on the morrow, Whom the budding brow marks out for a life Of love and strife In vain, I fear. Alas ! for the wanton flock's sorrow : Its hope shall tinge with reddening blood The streams of your ice-cold flood.
