EDITORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1895
EDITORIAL. WE have often wondered, as we examined many of the college papers which come to us from all sections, how any body of students possessing the opportunity for improvement, enlightenment and training offered by the publication of a paper, could be satisfied with the low standard of merit which the majority of our college journals have attained. There are many indeed which totally fail in even approximately fulfilling any of the purposes which justify the issuing of a college paper. Puerile attempts at journalism, which result in hopeless travesties, are frequent. The literary matter which they present displays much crudeness and carelessness, while the editorial departments lack all individuality and contain what must be as valueless and uninteresting to the members of the various schools themselves as it is incoherent to the outside world. A well-managed, well-edited college paper is bound to yvield great influence over the students of its own institution and to prove inst...
“A SAVIOUR UNTO YOU IS BORN.” [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1895
“A SAVIOUR UNTO YOU IS BORN.” Through the brooding n'ght, Angels bright Pass in serried order to the plain. Swift athwart the sky, Gleaming high, Meteors flash to guide the glowing train, And streams of song flow down the air, Moving everywhere. Yet no sparkling throne Of jasper stone There for seraph host to worship low. Sad the earth and cold, Winter wold Is fraught with gloom, and midnight waste of snow. Why throng these hallowed columns jovously Tremulous with melody? List! Their anthem loud Now greets the bowed Shepherds kneeling in the vales below, "Unto you is born This golden morn Christ your Saviour, born to mend your woe." "Peace, Peace to earth," the measured message rang. "Hail! Hail! O King," they sang. Charles J. Martell, '96.
A STUDENT’S WANTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1895
A STUDENT’S WANTS. In springtime all that I desire Are lessons which are short and sweet; In summer time I never tire Of musing far from sun and heat. In autumn days I like to play At football on our grassy field, And then go home and tell the way How inch by inch we made them yield. In winter I would like to sit Before the fire and talk, or read A work of classic taste and wit, Or watch the forms of changing gleed. But life is not an empty dream, We must be up and doing too; And I have still to write my theme Unless perchance this verse may do. ■ —James JV. O'Hara, '98. To the Editor of the Stylus: DEAR SIR, — Will you kindly, through the columns of the STYLUS, assist me to discover who wrote, and where may be found, a poem entitled, "Santa Marina"? The first lines are : "Santa Marina, saint of saints, Thy name on hesitating lips I reverently take. Thy life's heroic tale I fear, yet long to tell." By inserting these few lines, you will confer a favor on —A Friend,
CHRISTMAS EVE IN A CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1895
CHRISTMAS EVE IN A CHURCH. A YEAR ago on last Christmas Eve I went to a neighboring church for confession. The feast had brought an unusually large number of penitents, and so I had long to wait for my turn. Much romping during the day and the heated atmosphere in the church soon sent me to sleep. Oh, but what a delightful and happy sleep ! As I slept I dreamt I saw a little child appear before me. He was standing upon a cloud, and all around Him were little angels singing the most beautiful hymns. lat once saw that He who stood before me was the little Child Jesus, and I fell on my knees before Him and raised up my head and watched that beautiful face smiling down upon me. Then, seized with a most intense feeling of rapture and of love, I stretched out my arms to Him, and strange to say this little Child's face lit up with a heavenly smile, and He came into my arms, and allowed me to fold Him tenderly to my breast. Oh, what a peace filled my soul! For a minute I could not breathe, ...
DOMI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1895
DOMI. What wealth of magic charms Hath facial garniture! That down which nought e'er harms— What wealth of magic charms! 'Mong philosophic arms, With mental furniture What wealth of magic charms Hath facial garniture ! The Domi editor extends to all his readers the greetings of the gladsome Christmastide and wishes for a bright and happy New Year. Rev. Timothy Brosnahan, S. J., President of Boston College, preached the sermon on Thanksgiving Day at .St. Peter's Church, Cambridge. By the addition of Friday, November 28th, to the list of holidays, the students were enabled to reflect 011 the manner in which they vanquished turkey. At the annual Mass of Thanksgiving for the Catholic L nion of Boston, celebrated at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross, Rev. Jas. A. Doonan, S. J., Professor of Philosophy, preached the sermon. Rev. William O'B. Pardow, S. J., Provincial of the New York-Maryland Jesuit province, is expected to visit the college soon. He will deliver the Christmas sermon at the ...
ALUMNI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1895
ALUMNI. Mr. Edward Ball, the father of Dr. Thomas J. Ball, 'S2, died at his home in Cambrige early last month at the ripe old age of four score years. Mr. Ball was a glass maker and for some time previous to his retirement from business, thirty years ago, he managed several of the largest glass works in this country. lie was born in Ireland in 1S15, but was brought to this country when an infant, and spent nearly seventy years of his life in the vicinity of Boston. He was a sturdy man both in mind and body. Of a large family, only three children survive him, the doctor and two daughters. One of the features of the recent municipal campaign in this city was the joint debate between Timothy W. Coakley, 'S4, and his whilom comrade in politics, John B. Moran. Without touching upon the merits of the question at issue, we coincide with the general opinion, which was that Mr. Coakley showed himself to be a doughty antagonist whose skill in debate is not easily matched. William A. Murphv, '...
CLASS NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1895
CLASS NOTES. CLASS OF '96. The philosophers are busily preparing to make the final class banquet of their college days surpass all their former Christmas spreads. The literary and musical ability of the class is still what it was in former days, although some of the former talent has left 11s. The Parker House has been selected as the hostlery. The banquet committee consists of Messrs. Warren, Martell, and Delaney. Messrs. Cronin, Butler and Redican are preparing the programme. Patrick J. Scanned is the orator of the evening. Chas. J. Martell will write the class poem and Mathew J. Gleason will give the class history. Stephen A. Bergin is toastmaster. There is an incipient moustache in the class which, however, cannot be compared to those dainty little "Burnsides." CLA ss OF '97. As usual the class has chosen to hold its annual banquet at the Thorndike. The committee of arrangements have about settled every detail so that nothing now stands in the way. The programme business is prac...

EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1895
EXCHANGES. AMONG the exchanges which came to our sanctum during the past month, there was perhaps none which afforded us more genuine pleasure than the Niagara Rainbow , from Loretto Academy, Niagara Falls. Indeed, we scarcely know which feature of this journal to praise most—whether its classic appearance, the variety and arrangement of its matter, or the literary merit of the contributions. Among such a profusion of good things as we find distributed throughout its forty pages of reading matter, it would be difficult to decide which was the most deserving. The poem by "Karalice" stamps its author as one who possesses the true poetic gift. We have but two faults to find with the Rainbow — first, it has no exchange column, and secondly, it does not come often enough. The Holy Ghost College Bulletin from Pittsburg, is a new exchange which visited us during the past month. For a young journal it gives evidence of surprising vitality. "Politicsof Old," drawn from the Olynthiacs of Demo...

FOOTBALL CHIVALRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1895
FOOTBALL CHIVALRY. In days of old, the valiant knight Made battle bold for guerdon si ight Of fleeting blush, or quickening glance, And hearts were won with plume and lance, Of men in panoply bedight. Alack! my modern love last night Hath read of joust and tourney bright, And troubadours who sang in France, In days of old. To-day her smiles beam for a wight, Who on the campus leads the fight, ller soul is wrapped in deep romance, In dreams her "rush" is crowned, perchance, As when mad warriors matched their might In days of old.

ATHLETICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1895
ATHLETICS. OUR sister college, Georgetown, though prevented from winning fame on the gridiron, is not disposed to allow all interest in manly athletics at the college to die out. On the ninth of last month, aided by Wefers, " The wonder of two worlds," Georgetown defeated the University of Pennsylvania in an exciting team-race. The Washington Times thus describes the finish : "The mighty Jarvis (of U. P.) then took up the race for the third quarter, with J. D. Delaney as his opponent, and the race was a beauty, both repeatedly spurting, and Delaney cut out his work well, for he pushed close behind, having cut the lead down to one yard when the two cracks, B. J. Wefers and Orton, took up the thread for the finish. It was such a race as few people can stand, especially those suffering from heart disease. Orton had one yard start, Wefers had lapped him, and at the third turn coming for the chute, Wefers gathered himself together, and in such a burst of speed as has never been seen here...
SUNSHINE AND GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1895
SUNSHINE AND GOLD. An arch little maiden With gold in her hair, Flinging the sunshine Of youth everywhere. Twenty years afterward Sorrows untold Had clouded the sunshine And pilfered the gold. Be not aweary, Poor, desolate heart! Though trials and troubles May here be thy part, 'Tis but for a seas n ; Thy sunshine and gold Shall await thee in heaven A hundredfold. On December S, Father Boursaud spoke at the high mass, and Father Byrnes, in the evening at the reunion of the various sodalities. Both sermons are said to have been quite in keeping with the grandeur of the feast, with the music and decorations. Fr. Fargis, Professor of Physics and Chemistry, is much sought for outside as a preacher. On the first Sunday of November he preached, in Newton Centre, a sermon which will not be forgotten for some time to come. Timothy A. O'Leary, '92, has opened a boot and shoe store in his native city, Lynn, and rumor has it that he gives promise of becoming a very successful business man. Pro...
