" An Incident of the Sea." [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 6 December 1880
" An Incident of the Sea." I LOVE the deep blue ocean — Along the shore to roam. I sat upon the sea-worn rocks, And watched the dashing foam. I thought of the roaring tempests, The fierce and stormy wave, And of its of many victims, Of seamen true and brave. , Who in its depths had perished, And gone down with their ships. " Oh ! may I never perish so ! " The words were on my lips, . &lt;• • When, as I spoke and pondered, I gazed along the strand, And saw a group of fishermen Collected on the sand. But what is that beside them ? There ! lying at their feet ? It is a human body ! I sprang up from my seat. Excited, pale, I hurried on — My heart was beating then — When, at a turning of the rocks, I came upon the men. I asked a sturdy sailor If someone had been drowned ; In accents wild, I begged to know Whose body they had found. Thus spake the honest mariner— His eye was moist and wet : " ' Tis nothing but a porpus, zur ! My mate cotched, in the net."
A Decree of Fate. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 6 December 1880
A Decree of Fate. |"A E LISLE had been out of college for a year, had gone into business, and had worked hard all that time. He had not even taken the two weeks vacation generally given to young men. In fact, he felt very exemplary. He had been sitting in front of his fire, without a book or the evening paper, and very deep in thought. Slowly rising, he went to his desk and took out his visiting book. Before opening it, he held it in front of him, and, looking right at it, said: "Yes, I must marry, and —let me see —I will open you at random, and the first name my eyes shall fall upon shall be the name of her I shall ask to be my wife. I consider myself in the prime of life, and I do not intend to wait until I am forty before I settle down in my own house. Man is an immense creature; but he needs a woman to appreciate him. If a man is a good husband he will succeed anywhere. Here De Lisle opened the book, put his finger on a name, and then paused before he dared look. His thoughts we...
Correspondence [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 6 December 1880
Correspondence NEW YORK, NOV. 18th, 1880. Editors COLUMBIA SPECTATOR : JTAEAR SIRS : — As I understand that the Trustees are still agitating the question of naming the new building, I venture to make a suggestion, which, I hope, will meet not only their approval, but the approbation of the college at large. If the Trustees do not care to call the new building after Professor Anthon, as was assumed by your contemporary, they might not be averse to naming it "King's College," in honor of Dr. King, who was for many years President of Columbia College. Thus, while paying a graceful tribute to the worth and services of one who was long the honored and distinguished head of Columbia, they would also be perpetuating the original name of the college, and in a manner which need not offend the most Republican of Columbia's sons. Respectfully, COLSPEC.
About College [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 6 December 1880
About College PHE Athletic department of the Columbiad will be compiled this year as it was last, by Geo. H. Taylor. ACCORDING to the daily papers, on the occasion of the Yale-Princeton match, "The Columbia students vociferously cheered for Yale." MR. FIELDER, referee in the game with Princeton, has decided that we forfeited to her. The matter will come before the Inter-Collegiate Association. Capt. Thayer, of the University of Pennsylvania, has sent word that there was a foot of snow on the ground on the 27th of November at Philadelphia, and therefore we did not come. THE Directors of the Boat Club, 011 Nov. 18th, decided to issue a challenge to Cornell. Accordingly, on the following day this letter was sent : Commodore Cornell Navy : DEAR SIR : At a recent meeting of the Board of Directors of the Columbia College Boat Club the following resolution was passed : " Resolved , That a challenge be forthwith issued to the Cornell Navy to row a University four-oared race —distance, time ...
School of Mines Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 6 December 1880
School of Mines Notes. T F the laboratories and Drawing Academy would be opened at 9:30, considerable less grumbling would be done by the students, especially the engineers, who have no time to waste waiting for them to be opened. SPEAKING in the Drawing Academy has proven to be detrimental not only to the production of good free-hand drawings, but also to the solution of certain practical problems in descriptive geometry. THE seniors do not join in with the other three classes in giving the Reception this year ; consequently the three other classes will have to bear the brunt. We hope, however, that some of the minority of 'Bl will assist them. WE are glad to announce that the annual Christmas reception given by the students oj the School of Mines will be held in the new building on Friday evening, Dec. 17th. The committee who have charge of the affair is composed of the following gentlemen : Cooper, 'B2, chairman ; Shumway and Feuchtwanger, 'B2; Calhoun, Wood and Dusenbury, 'B3; R...
The College World [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 6 December 1880
The College World AMHERST : Tennis is expected to go on indoors. The freshmen and sophomores amuse themselves by making a row at the unearthly time of A M. and he freshmen have had their gymnasium shirts embroidered in green. Quite appropriate, as the Student remarks. HARVARD: — The expenses of the freshman crew last year were $2,300, of which $1,200 has been paid. The freshman nine will begin practice in the gymnasium as soon as the weather prevents outdoor practice. Twelve men have promised to work. By the will of Edwin M. Barringer, Harvard receives $25,000 for the establishment of scholarships. The Harvard Chess Club has ceased to exist as an organization. The Register has not been a success financially, and there is a prospect of its ceasing to exist. PRINCETON: — 'B3's class foot-ball team defeated Rutgers 'B3 by three goals, two touch-downs to nothing. It was rumored, just after the Yale-Princeton match, that some Yale men were taxed heavily for their experience of the uncert...
The Library [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 6 December 1880
The Library WAS MAN CREATED? By Henry A. Mott, Jr., E.M., Ph.D. New York: Griswolcl &amp; Cos. Bvo, 151 pp. Price $1.50. 'T 1 HE tendency of modern thought is scientific, and it is fast leading towards materialism. A firm belief is prevalent " that the point where organic and inorganic nature become one " will so be found. Hitherto chemical researches have been the subjects of Dr. Mott's numerous books and memoirs. In the volume before us he ventures into a new field. The subject of evolution is considered with the object of showing that a belief in a future existence is not compatible with theories of those who acknowledge Herbert Spencer as their leader. The development of life in all its varying phases, from its first beginnings in protoplasm to man with his intellectual capacities, is explained. The argument is well sustained, and numerous quotations from the latest authorities in science are given in demonstration of the author's views. The book will have its greatest e...
Our Exchanges [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 6 December 1880
Our Exchanges HTHE Vassar Miscellany , for November, is a first-class number, and can be read with interest by almost any one. " Addison and Swift as Typical Reformers " is good, and " Recollections of Japanese Family Life" full of interest. The editorials are well written, and the clippings are, in general, marked by good taste. THE Sibyl, from Elmira Female College, has just reached us, and contains a very good bit of verse entitled "Saxifrage." The debate on the question of eating corn on or off the cob is also not bad. THE Cornell Sun claims to be a daily; but generally favors us with one copy a week, and so we take it for granted that it is published the rest of the time. We wish the man in charge of the mailing list would brace himself up and send the papers with more regularity. ON the front page of the Index we see "Special inducements to boys from TO to 17 years of age, who wear long pants," from which we infer that not a few of the 17-year old students of the S. O. L. A. w...
Shavings [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 6 December 1880
Shavings APPROPRIATE stamp for cans of dynamite : " Sic itur ad as trad —Colby Echo. WHATSOEVER a man seweth, that also shall he rip.— Mercury. —They were in the wood. Said he, looking unutterable things, "I wish I were a fern, Gussie." "Why," she asked. "Why —p'rhaps—you— would —press me too." She evidently hated to do it, but it is best to nip such things in the bud, so she replied : " I'm afraid you're too green, Charley." The poor boy almost blubbered. — Boston Transcript. AND we wondered if the hero of the following was a freshman or a philosophic junior. Who can tell? Young was sitting on the porch the other night watching a seventeen-year-old girl trying to keep awake long enough to see the morning star rise. They talked Astronomy. " I wish I was a star," he said, smiling at his own poetic fancy. " I would rather you were a comet," she said His heart beat tumultuously. "And why?" he asked, tenderly, at the same time taking her unresisting little hands in his own ; " and why ?...
