Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 November 1880
The game with Yale was probably the most unequal exhibition ever witnessed in a football field. When we were once defeated by Harvard, by six goals, we thought that was the worst that could happen to a team, but the appalling score of thirteen goals and three touch-downs never entered into any one's calculations. It is a great consolation to know that Yale has an almost perfect team, but the fact is none the less apparent that nothing but lamentable weakness on our side could have caused the result. Last year our team was greatly strengthened by the Law and Medical School Men who played on it, but this year it is composed entirely of men from the College and Mines, and the result is painfully evident. The captain has worked hard, but many things have been against us. The Polo Grounds could not be obtained till late on in the season, and for some reason almost all the men who have tried for the team have been exceptionally light. These are unfortunate facts, but still more unpleasant...
An Italian Experience. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 November 1880
An Italian Experience. CONTINUED. U A/T Y family ave ve( V' said the Roman in a mournful tone. " That goes without saying, if you had any family at all," thought I, and was about to give my thoughts expression when I remembered the peculiarity of the Latin idiom. "You doubtless think it strange," he went on, "that I continue to exist." I admitted that I thought it somewhat remarkable. " Hear; I will lay before you the whole matter. My name is Briccius Antiquus Bracchus. I was an alchemist and astrologer in the days of Sulla. My one thought and aim in the world was to discover the Elixir of Life. I by no means cared for politics, or any other thing, save this one. At length I was successful, but at the expense of the lives of my wife and children, who succumbed to the ' res angusta domii to which the insane pursuit of my mania subjected them. It was in my power (as I have since realized) to make many thousands of asses by giving to the world my discovery, instead of which I made but ...
"Far From The Madding Crowd." [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 November 1880
"Far From The Madding Crowd." CONCLUDED. \\ J E arrived at Olean at about 12 p. M., after a long and tedious ride on the Erie road. During the ride we changed our character in the eyes of the inhabitants, and were no longer a traveling base-ball nine, but a theater company ; the number of our trunks serving to confirm this idea. One thing only of our former selves clung to us, and that was the old familiar "Where do you's fellows play to-day ? " From the depot at Olean we rode to the hotel in an omnibus, and after a lengthy argument with the proprietor, obtained rooms for the night. We went to bed with rather mixed ideas about the next morning's programme, and as a natural consequence we awoke to find that some of us had been badly left,' Prof. Munroe and a portion of the party having started on an early train for Bradford to visit the oil wells in operation there. Those who were left hurried out just in time to see the train containing the main party disappear in the distance, and ...
Foot-Ball. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 November 1880
Foot-Ball. HARVARD VS. COLUMBIA. first game of the season was played on the Polo Grounds on November 6th against Harvard, and was witnessed by few spectators, as the day was dull and drizzly. The successive rains of some days had rendered the ground very wet and slippery, and in places there were large pools of water. Lawsonhad been badly hurt a day or so before in practice, and his place was taken by Martinez, who, by his wretched fumbling and complete loss of presence of mind, gave Harvard a touch-down early in the game which she had no right to expect. Harvard won the toss and chose the eastern goal, having sun and wind behind them. Clark kicked off for us, but the ball was well returned, and the play continued near our goal for some time ; Burton worked the ball off by a fine run, but was collared, and the ball was then sent flying back to Martinez, who fumbled it, and then in an astonished way fled to his own goal and made a safety touch. The ball went up and down the field, He...
The Song of the Sophomore. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 November 1880
The Song of the Sophomore. T CONTINUALLY complain T That my sophomoric brain Is stored with useless trash That it never can contain. And I'm giddy, wild, and rash; Yes, and really far from sane When I tilt with trigonometry, Analytical geometry, And anapaestic dipodies From a chorus of Euripides. When I tackle a Denarius, And tell facts unique and various Of Bootes and Aquarius, I could flee to the antipodes. — Yale Courant,
About College [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 November 1880
About College seniors talk of getting up a foot-ball team. SUBSCRIBERS to the SPECTATOR are invited to read the exchanges in the office of the paper. LUCKY Eighty-one. REMARKABLE number of cuts on November ioth. PRACTICE for the game with the University of Pennsylvania. No more copies of the SPECTATOR will be given to those who have not paid up. THE Columbiad committee promise . to have the annual - out before Christmas. T HE postponement of the regatta seemed to have no effect on the attendance. COLUMBIA has had bad luck in weather for her athletic meetings this year. SOME seniors are putting two years into one by attending the Law School and the School of Political Science at the same time. THE freshmen held their monthly meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 9th. An Inter-collegiate Cricket Association is talked of. This would be composed of the four colleges who now have teams —namely, Harvard, University of Penn., Trinity, and Columbia. THE University of Pennsylvania Chess Club has surrende...
School of Mines Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 November 1880
School of Mines Notes. UDLOW, '79, expects to sail for Mexico next week. We wish him good luck. SINGER, 'B3, was thrown from his bicycle last week, the result of the said accident being a sprained wrist. THE Chemical Society held their regular semimonthly meeting in Dr. Chandler's lecture-room Thursday evening last. President Wiechmann presided, and there was an unusual good attendance. Dr. Waller read a very interesting paper 011 the determination of phenol by bromine. After a few remarks the meeting adjourned. Now that the Juniors are in the Quantitative Lab., any one who desires to hear a perfect imitation of a bagpipe, canary bird, jackass and operatic solos, can do so by merely spending about five minutes in the Lab., between the hours of 2 and SP. M. The father of 'B2 tries his best to maintain dignity and order, but that delicate little " Fairy " and the " Copper and Zinc alloy " are too much for him. THE Eighty-four men made themselves decidedly fresh on Thursday last by the...
The College World [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 November 1880
The College World BROWN: — The "Hammer and Tongs" Society have decided to repeat Romeo and Juliet at an early date. It is rumored that a fountain will occupy the centre of the campus when finished. The singing in chapel is gradually wilting away. The solid athlete at Brown seems to be Mr. S. I. Irons, who recently took four first and three second prizes in the fall meeting. CORNELL: — The University has been thrown into a state of excitement by the suicide of David Halsey, of the senior class. No motive for the deed has been found. One of the boarding house keepers lost an oyster supper for her thirty-six boarders on the election. The odd classes have all the honors in sporting. 'Bl holds the rowing and foot-ball championships, and 'B3 claims the championship in base-ball. The seniors are still struggling over their class president. DARTMOUTH: — Water is soon to be supplied to the buildings, and journeys to the pumps will be things of the past. The sophomores went to Montreal for th...
Minos Rhadamanthus Our Exchanges [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 November 1880
Minos Rhadamanthus Our Exchanges Rutgers Targum has adopted a new heading, and decidedly improved its appearance by the change. Its editors publish the constitution of the Targum Association, and we find that all the subscribers are members of the Association, and also that a majority of the members shall constitute a quorum. Unless the subscription list is very small, we fear the quorum will not be obtained many times during the year. The editor of the "Targets" is afflicted with a punning mania. We hope it is only temporary. THE Argus has also chosen a new inside heading, and the reading matter is vastly superior to last year. We hope the editors will keep up their boom, and not relapse into the dreary monotony which has at times characterized the paper. THE College Mercury appears to have adopted a new mode of spelling Latin, as we notice Alma Mater spelt Mata several times in a late issue. We would inform our contemporary that this word is feminine, although it ends in er, and t...
Shavings [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 November 1880
Shavings THERE was a small boy with some powder, And in trying to make it go louder He succeded so well That his friends couldn't tell His remains from a dish of clam chowder.— Recoi'd. EXAMINER. —Please give me an example of a dilemma. Candidate. —A fellow goes up for a degree. He is in a dilemma. If he passes he must get drunk to celebrate his success; if he is plucked, he must get drunk to conceal his sorrow. World. ''THERE is no place like home," repeated Mr. Henpeck, looking at a motto, and he heartilyadded: "I'm glad there isn't." Prof. —"Now, gentlemen, to-morrow is examination day, and I don't want any one of you to bring anything into this room, except a leadpencil." Student. —"Not even a pajama, Professor?" Prof.: " Sir, what's in that keg?" Student: "Beer, sir ; the doctor prescribed it and I didn't want to be running into a beer saloon every little while." Prof.: "And does it help you?" Student: "Oh, yes; when I got it I could hardly lift it, and now it goes up just as e...
