To a Maid in Tears. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 13 January 1881
To a Maid in Tears. SOFT nestled in Dame Fortune's lap, Thou should'st not know of care; For thou hast beauty, lover, friends, And lands both broad and fair. But, as I gaze, thy sapphire eyes With pearly tears brim o'er, Bedew thy peachy cheek, and drop Unheeded to the floor. Oh maiden, tell me why you weep ! From whom hast suffered wrong? " La me! sir, 'tis my smelling salts, They are so awful strong."
Some Desirable Changes. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 13 January 1881
Some Desirable Changes. 11. copied in our last number a resolution of the Board of Trustees, by which the connection between Columbia College and the College of Physicians and Surgeons was abolished, the date being left in blank. By an unfortunate error in the printed " Resolutions of the Trustees" the words and laid over were omitted; no definite action ever having been taken on the Resolution further than postponing indefinitely its consideration. We heartily regret the mistake we were then led into making. ENFORCE THE STATUTE CONCERNING ELOCUTION. Chapter 111, Section 6, of the Statutes of Columbia College reads as follows: " In each of the four years the student shall be exercised in English Composition, and during the first three years in Latin and Greek Composition also, AND IN ELOCUTION." This year this statute is carried out as follows: Neither the freshmen, the sophomores, the juniors nor the seniors are " exercised in Elocution," to our shame be it said; and, and if it wer...
The Rival. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 13 January 1881
The Rival. THOU think'st, fond lover, that her smiles Are only meant for thee, And thou art sure that from all wiles None are so free as she. Thou think'st that thee alone she'd love, Though many came to woo; That eyes blue as the heaven above Could ne'er prove aught but true. But know that those eyes daiiv beam On one more loved —alas! I fear that I've destroyed love's dream: Thy rival's but —her glass. F. B. H
About College [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 13 January 1881
About College HP HE Hare and Hounds Challenge Cup is now on exhibition at the SPECTATOR office. It received a christening last Thursday. PACH is&lt; now pointing his camera at the seniors. Two weeks more before Semi-Annual Examinations. SENIORS should not delay their visit to Pach's, but go at once. THE freshmen are not doing the work they ought to, at the gymnasium. CORNELL has sent word that at present she can send no decided answer to our challenge. IF building is commenced on the campus it will rather interfere with 'Si's plans for Class Day. EIGHTY-THREE'S crew is working at Wood's with the intention of giving 'Bl a tough race next spring. THE date for the Junior Reception is Friday, February nth. Tickets, admitting gentleman and ladies, will be sold at $3, including supper. A BOOK containing selections of poetry from the columns of the college press is soon to be published. Orders can be left at the SPECTATOR office. THE Junior Reception Committee was elected on Friday...
School of Mines Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 13 January 1881
School of Mines Notes. TQ LECTION of officers in the Chemical Society next Thursday. Lively times anticipated as there is considerable interest manifested between the friends of the different candidates. WHERE is our Engineering Society? That is the question. A SCIENTIFIC CUE, what is it? Ask the juniors if you want to know. THE familiar face of Hallock, '79, is again seen around the Mines. SHELDON, '79, goes to Mexico from Arizona with Holbrook, as his assistant there. SUBSCRIBERS of the SPECTATOR will please settle their subscriptions at the earliest possible time. THE second number of the Quarterly is just out —contents very interesting. Subscriptions can be procured from any of the editorial board. THE School of Mines Reception has come and gone. Now that bills have to be settled, the committee find themselves, owing to the action of the freshmen, which, we must say, is decidedly mean, stuck, to the tune of nearly fifteen apiece. Oh, we enjoy getting up the reception! Oh, yes ! ...
The College World [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 13 January 1881
The College World AMHERST: — The seniors have been requested to hand in an expression of their opinion in regard to compulsory attendance at church service. The art gallery has recently received a number of fine casts of antique statues and bas-reliefs, prominent among them being the " Lions," from Mycenae. HARVARD: — Air. C. W. Bradley, 'BO, is to be one of the four who will accompany the Archaeological Society to Greece. The new term of Annex opens with an attendance of 42, nearly twice the number of last year. There will be about thirty classes, or about one maiden and a third for each class on an average. A committee has been appointed to consider the expediency of establishing a legislative branch of the Union for exercise in parliamentary practice. The following subjects have been suggested for essays for the medal offered by the Cobden Club of England: 1. The Economic Effects of the Modern System of Raising Government Loans. 2.

THE STUDENT'S LAW DICTIONARY OF WORDS AND PHRASES IN LAW LATIN, LAW FRENCH AND ANGLOSAXON. By. S. S. Peloubet. Second thousand. Revised and corrected. Pp. 247. Diossy &amp; Cos.

Carleton &amp; Cos. Pp. 46. Price 25 cents. Mr. Swinton has published his travels, as he says, "for reasons which will be found by those who properly read them," and, on the whole, they are worth reading. No very new or striking ideas are to be found in the book, but it is by no means uninteresting. He was strongly impressed with the squalor of London as contrasted with the comfort and happiness of Paris; and, in fact, the only thing which did not meet his approval in France was the ...
Our Exchanges [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 13 January 1881
Our Exchanges Yale Lit. is up to the standard it has kept so long, and though it is, at times, a trifle too ponderous, it is always worth reading, and ranks first of all the "lits." The November number contained the Lit. prize essay, which is considered one of the highest literary honors at Yale ; and the winner this year, Mr. E. T. McLaughlin, has given a good specimen of English composition in his sketch of Percy Bysshe Shelly. The glory of a new cover glows on the Wittenberger, and with the new cover comes the end of its mathematical department, which is mourned by some of the exchanges and rejoiced over by more. It was good as a mathematical department, but out of its sphere in a college paper, and we hope the Wittenberger will prosper now that it has such a gorgeous appearance and less weight to carry. The Sportsman has decided to take the longneeded "brace," and now comes out with a colored cover, and gives its subscribers pictures of celebrated race-horses, with which we ador...
Minos Rhadamanthus Shavings [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 13 January 1881
Minos Rhadamanthus Shavings OUR visits remind me of the growth of a successful newspaper/' said Uncle Jabez, leaning his chin on his cane and glancing at William Henry, who is sweet on Angelica. " Why so?" inquired William Henry. "Well, they commenced on a weekly, grew to be a tri-weekly, and have now become daily, with a Sunday supplement." — Ex. SCENE, student's room —Time, twilight, Sunday after Thanksgiving —Present, seven seniors, ist senior rests his head on 2nd senior's shoulder, 2d senior smooths his forehead, ist senior : " I say, Tom, that feels just immense." (After a pause) " I tell you, fellows, I had the boss time this recess." Six seniors greatly amused, one wonders why ? — Courant.
