How Plum-Pudding Kept His Promise. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 16 December 1880
How Plum-Pudding Kept His Promise. more the merry Christmas-time has come; the air is cold and bracing, and the white, crisp snow dazzles the eye as it glistens and shimmers in the December sun. The innocent freshman carefully examines his stockings to discover which is the most capacious, and beautiful visions of the latest things in watch-guards and scarf-pins, flit before the imagination of the nobby junior. It is only, however, when all Jhese anticipations have been realized or blighted; when the eager family gathering, drawn up about the sturdy mahogany, groaning beneath its weight of good Christmas cheer, behold the remains of the once plump turkey removed, and its place supplied by the huge, globular mass of succulent deliciousness, surrounded as with burning incense by its own savory steam, with the bright sprig of holly on its ample forehead lit up by the clear, blue flames of the burning cognac; —then, and only then, are the joys which attend the coming of Old Father Chris...
" Et nos Mutomus." [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 16 December 1880
" Et nos Mutomus." HER craze for keramics is over. No longer th' aesthetic girl delves In underglaze, biscuit, or crackle, — These henceforth may rest 011 their shelves. No longer of apple green, mustard, Or turquoise lined vases she speaks; No longer intensely quotes Ruskin, Or Goethe, or " Art 'rnoilg the Greeks." What wrought this change great, as when daylight Sends the shadows of night from the earth ? No new craze —no novel employment; 'Tis but—a new fashion by Worth. F. B. H.
A Decree of Fate. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 16 December 1880
A Decree of Fate. (CONCLUDED.) HP HE following week Miss Marion Jones was installed in her new domain. It was Saturday evening, and she was reading alone in the sitting-room. Mrs. Martin had retired with a bad headache. Suddenly the door opened and Henry De Lisle walked in. " Good evening, Miss Jones; I am all tired out, and have come to spend a quiet Sunday with you and my aunt. No, no, don't tell her I'm here. You will do quite as well, and I must do instead of Emerson to-night." " It must be a happy sensation to feel capable of taking the place of Emerson. I feel quite pleased with the thought that a conversation with you may give my mental powers quite a rest." " I hope so, and that mine may fare equally well. It was for that purpose I came to spend Sunday with you." " First, will you have something to eat?" " Thank you, I have dined; but if we could have tea in here I should like it." The tea was soon made, and the conversation became more agreeable than it had promised in the ...

A. begs leave to acknowledge the receipt of six complimentary tickets for their annual ball. COLUMBIA men are beginning to frequent Wood's Gymnasium, although the crew has not yet begun work. THE seniors have decided to give a class supper on the 21 st of February. They are certainly " taking time by the forelock." THE freshmen have decided to purchase an eight-oared shell from the seniors, for $250, and have already over half the amount subscribed. At the last class-meeting held by the sophomore class, Mr. W. N. Eldridge resigned the presidency, and Mr. S. H. Esselstyn was elected in his place. Mr. Jno. K. Bangs was chosen to fill the office of vice-president. Agent to student: "I should like to sell you one of th...
School of Mines Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 16 December 1880
School of Mines Notes. TAON'T forget your cards of admission for the School of Mines reception. ON Tuesday, the 6th inst., the entire junior class were absent from the Mines, owing to their attendance in a body at the funeral of their late friend and classmate, Daniel B. Stearns, who died of typhoid fever the previous Monday. Through the death of Stearns, 'B2 loses one of its brightest men, and, at the same time, one whose qualities made him one of the most popular men in the class. Resolutions as regards this sad occurrence will be found in our next issue. EVEN at this early period in the class's existence, death has entered the ranks of 'B4, School of Mines, and taken one of its most promising members. On Wednesday morning, December Ist, the freshmen were both surprised and shocked to learn of the death, on Tuesday evening, from typhoid pneumonia, of their classmate, George P. P. Schmidt. The funeral service was held at the Church of the Incarnation, Madison Avenue and Thirty-fift...

Van Dyke, 'Bl, won the cup given to the fastest hound at the last meet. Cats will soon be at a premium : the scientific students are cutting them up half a dozen at a time in the Biological department. The two great literary societies, Whig and Clio, have excited so much interest that several smaller clubs are formed to prepare men to appea...
Our Exchanges [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 16 December 1880
Our Exchanges r I "HE Dartmouth, is a good paper; but we want to know why it has recently adopted the fashion of printing the "steers" which it receives from other journals. It is very bad taste, and we hope the Dartmouth will have the good sense to drop this foolish custom. By the way, brother editor, Columbia unfortunately still hangs on to the marking system, all rumors notwithstanding ; though we have not given up hope that its abolition will come in the dim and distant future. THE Echo comes out with an appeal for the Register , which we hope will be of service in putting the latter on a paying basis. When the Register was first started, we thought that, although a very commendable endeavor and one worthy of support, it was a question whether it could be made to succeed, and it seems likely that our ideas were correct. We hope not, however; for the Register (though the Crimson did at one time say "We repudiate Mr. King and his paper") has become one of the foremost college jour...

SENIOR asks professor a very profound question. Prof.: " Mr. W , a fool can ask a question that ten wise men could not answer." Senior: " Then I suppose that's why so many of us flunk." — Ex.
