THE SCHOOLBOY MILLENNIUM [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 March 1896
THE SCHOOLBOY MILLENNIUM WE have now reached the millennium, A. D. 3000. It is a glorious age in some respects, in others it is very unsatisfactory. Everything is as one wishes, and this fact leads to a great many curious results. For example, we do not have to study as of yore: every morning all the students wish that they knew their lessons and the lessons are immediately known. Greek is as easy as rolling off a horizontal-bar, and English Compositions can be talked into a small pocket phonograph and given to the professor to correct. This method is also followed by the bashful boy in elocution class. When his name is called he walks up, gives the teacher his phonograph, and nobody ever knows whether he has said " substitoot" or "dooty " except himself and the professor. It is now far easier for both teacher and scholar. At examination time the student is taken to a room, lets the teacher examine his brain with the aid of the X-ray and gets his mark. This does away with the tediou...
AN OVERSIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 March 1896
AN OVERSIGHT. TIIE sonnet, entitled " The Oak of Geismar," which appeared in our issue of last month, was written by Dennis J. Browne of Rhetoric. The printer, in making out the pages of the STYLUS, forgot to transfer the name from the galley, and so honor was not given to whom honor was due. Professor: "Geometry comes from the Greek." Soliloquizer: "I wish it would go back there."
DOMI [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 March 1896
DOMI Now that the Lenten season has come, some little mortification is expected from everyone. The student who has heretofore considered his lessons as a torture unduly afflicted, has this thought to console him during this time of penance. If old Father Time could have been induced at the beginning of the New Year not to move his wheel an additional turn for Leap Year, it would redound to the occasional relaxation of youth in the shape of a holiday. February 22 fell upon a Saturday, as will also May 30. April 19 will fall on a Sunday. The twenty-ninth of February will not occur again until 1904. On Ash Wednesday, February 19, all the students of the College attended Mass and received the Blessed Ashes. Professor John J. Kirby delivered a selection from Webster at a Musicale, held Sunday evening, February 16, under the auspices of the Ladies' Temperance and Benevolent Society of Marlboro. He rendered it with his usual spirit and eloquence. " A powerful mirror was used to throw the w...
ALUMNI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 March 1896
ALUMNI. REV. DR. P. J. SUPPLE, 'B5, has been chosen by Archbishop Williams to assist Father Ford in the management of the Working Boys' Ilome and more particularly to take charge of the new industrial school for which a magnificent building is being erected in Newton. After a splendid course in the American College at Rome, Dr. Supple was admitted to the Doctorate in Sacred Theology and, upon his return to this country five years ago, was sent as a curate to the Gate of Heaven Church, South Boston. His work in this parish endeared him to pastor and people alike. He was especially active as director of the League of the Sacred Heart and other societies and won a high place among the junior clergy as a preacher. Dr. Supple is said to be a man of much ability as an executive and will no doubt make an excellent assistant. On his departure for the new field of labor many were the regrets expressed by the old parishioners. Miss Margaret T. Ford, a sister of Rev. John F. Ford, 'Si, superin...

ATHLETICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 March 1896
ATHLETICS. THERE is certainly no dearth of good baseball material this year. Most of the members of last year's team have returned to college, and there are many ball-players among the new-comers. About twenty-five candidates have responded to the call of Manager McDermod, and gymnasium practice is daily indulged in. A large number of games already arranged testify to the activity of the manager. The following will be played early in the season : two with Holy Cross and one each with Phillips Exeter, Tufts,and Bowdoin. An invitation to enter athletes in the various events of the Holy Cross College indoor meet, which was held March 12th, at Worcester, was received by the Athletic Association. M. F. Maguire, '96, was sent to represent the Association in the forty yard dash. There is a movement on foot looking to the arrangement for a joint indoor meet with Holy Cross at some early date. A committee has been appointed to enquire into its advisability. The members of the A. A. should ta...
THE WHISPER OF A BROOK. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 March 1896
THE WHISPER OF A BROOK. IT was a warm summer day, and having walked a long distance through the fields, I was about to return, when I came upon a small brook flowing between two grassy banks and shaded by a large willow tree. The spot looked so cool and pleasant that I threw myself down upon the bank to rest, and soon fell into a doze, when I heard a whisper which seemed to come from the brook. I remained very quiet and listened to the following narrative. "I am a happy little brook and I have come a long distance on my way to the river. It is very pleasant now in the summer with the sun shining brightly and the birds singing sweetly, but I will soon be dried up, because it does not rain as much in the summer as it does in the spring, when I overflow my banks and cover the fields with water. In the winter I am frozen up and the people slide and skate on the ice. And in the autumn I become so choked with leaves, that it is almost impossible for me to flow at all. I start 011 my journ...

THE election of officers of the Fulton Debating Society, for the second term 1595-96, was held in the debating hall on Friday, February 7- Considerable rivalry was manifested in the choice of officers by the different classes especially by '97 and '9B, but the voting passed off smoothly and resulted as follows: William J.

Kenney, '97, and John B. Lynch, '9B, an...
THE OTHER KITTY. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 March 1896
THE OTHER KITTY. LITTLE Willie sat in the corner of the kitchen back of the stove and didn't say a word for several minutes—something very unusual for him. Willie was an only child, three years old and, of course, very much petted. He had just gone through the terrible ordeal of having his face washed and now he was seated on the floor pouting like the spoiled child that he was. His hair was brushed smoothly back and his face was clean and fresh-looking, but wore a deep frown as if he were thinking over some weightv question. His playful little black kitten "Nig" came rubbing up against him and purring but received for his trouble a cruel kick from the object of his affections. Willie sat still another minute, and then glancing up at his mother who was busy at her work, he said : "I wish I were a kitty." "Do you?" asked his mother; "why?" "'Cause, "he muttered, "they don't have to have their faces washed." Willie's mother made no reply, so he did not attempt to continue the conversa...
EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 March 1896
EXCHANGES. SEI.DOM has any biography published during recent years been so severely condemned as has Purcell's Life of Cardinal Manning. Not only has the Catholic press on both sides of the Atlantic protested against this travesty upon the life of a great and good man, but the liberal Protestant journals have been outspoken against it. Although Mr. Purcell claims to have been a warm personal friend of the late Cardinal, he seems to have been entirely incapable of appreciating the great worth of the latter. The picture which he gives us of Cardinal Manning is that of a selfish, quarrelsome individual, and one unwilling to be associated with an unpopular or losing cause. This latter view is an utterly false one as the Cardinal's earnest championship of the Irish cause at all times will prove. And if further proof were wanted his abandonment of sure preference in the Anglican Church for the little temporal advantage which the Catholic Church could hold out to him might be adduced. Whet...
