THE HUMAN HEART. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1896
THE HUMAN HEART. O fickle, wayward human heart, How wondrous strange a thing thou art! Every passing form of beauty Lures thee from thy plainest duty, Wounds thee through and through: Every fleeting joy and pleasure, Every trifling earthly treasure Opes the wound anew. Be a martyr to thy duty; Seek alone eternal Beauty, Which passeth not with time. Let God's will be thy pleasure, And His grace thy only treasure: This is life sublime. Then fickle, wayward human heart, How wondrous changed a thing thou art! T. P. S. TINTORF.TTA, '9B.
A TRIP TO HADES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1896
A TRIP TO HADES. It seems somewhat inconsistent with teaching which has at all times warned us to avoid the snares of the infernal region, now to bid us explore the kingdom of Pluto, and feel the warm reception which only Hades is capable of offering. In our moments of bitter antipathy to the hypocritical Greeks and Romans, we have been often tempted to hurl them into the very depths of Hades; but we little dreamed that we ourselves should one day be deputed to seek them out and take down, for a class exercise, their views on the Cuban question, or perhaps to explode the widely circulated theory of "Happiness in Hell." When I was appointed to write up this account of a "Trip to Hades," I was mainly troubled about finding away of getting there. But Fortune favored me. As I was walking through Boston Common, I noticed a motley crowd gathered about a Methodist parson —so named, I suppose, because there was method in his madness. Drawing nearer, I heard these words, delivered with all t...
THE COMING OF THE BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1896
THE COMING OF THE BIRDS. Up from the everglades and green morasses, The birds of beauty come with glistening plumes; Up from the orange groves and ripple-grasses, And from the sunlit coombs. In flocks they come, the bobolincolns brabbling, The brilliant bulfinch with his crimson wings: Robin, and meadow-lark, and bluebird babbling Of southern sprays and springs. Up from the land of the vanilla lobules, Up from the saffron fields the blackbirds come Pouring their music out in golden globules, In every lane and lurn. Goldfinch and phebe-bird, whose chirming cheery, I love as others love the nightingale's, Come with their sunlight to our woodlands dreary And vocalize our vales. Lintwhite and whip-poor-will that late were whistling Where sunlit ships on blue lagoons laveer, Come where on fields of filemot are mistling The April heavens drear. Down in the dingle where the brooks are brawling Like rapids dashing on an overslaugh,. Even to-day, I heard the cuckoos calling, And the white sw...

EDITORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1896
EDITORIAL. In accordance with an established custom a new Board of Editors assumes control of the STYLUS with the present issue. The approach of June and final examinations for the members of the senior class necessitate the retirement of the '96 men from the board, leaving to our less experienced, but not less willing care the guidance of our beloved journal. The present board will labor earnestly to maintain the standard of its predecessors, and if possible to lift it higher yet. F-ormer successes, however, have brought in their train new responsibilities. While we rejoice over past good fortune we cannot be unmindful of present duty. Besides, more is expected of us now than in the early days of the STYLUS. We cannot stand still ; we must be progressing with the age. With our growth in years, growth in experience and in knowledge is expected and a higher standard of literary excellence is required. Shortcomings that might be overlooked in earlier times could not be tolerated to-da...
AD CAPTANDUM. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1896
AD CAPTANDUM. May summer with its golden corn Raise love within your heart forlorn, May night precede the blushing morn A little while. And may the throbbing, beating drum, Till sound waves onward quivering come, May stinging bees yet louder hum: You smile, you smile. And may the muse with purple locks Bring fame to me and many rocks; Those odd, old-fashioned Gladstone stocks Still raise my bile. And yet for you, my love, my dear, The spring takes place of winter drear, And helps to make the arching year: You smile, you smile. But when I say: "Now you're my wife," And matrimony causes strife, And with me walk the paths of life, My better half; You'll have to build the morning fire When snow and ice both show their ire; Though to lie much longer you desire; And then I'll laugh. —F. McD.-
THE JUNIOR PLAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1896
THE JUNIOR PLAY. ON Wednesday evening, May 6, 1896, Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night" was played by the students of the Preparatory Department, in the College Hall. The performance was an excellent one in every respect, and gave evidence of the patient, intelligent labor devoted to its preparation, not only 011 the part of those in charge but also 011 the part of the players themselves. With scarcely an exception the actors seemed thoroughly imbued with the spirit of their parts. Some, indeed, showed such skill that their acting would do credit to many of our older Thespians. Naturally enough a few minor faults were noticeable here and there, but these were the result of inexperience, rather than of lack of ability or of preparation. Indeed, the critic can find none but words of praise for the entire production. Sir Toby Belch, Sir Andrew Aguecheek, Fabian and Stephano (Maria) were indeed a jolly, mirth-loving set. Their acting throughout was very spirited and realistic, and showed much...
DOMI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1896
DOMI. WIT H the present issue of the STYLUS the Domi Editor for 1896-1897 dons the mantle of his predecessor, and makes his initial bow to the esteemed patrons of our college paper. To the retiring editor, who has reluctantly departed from the editorial sanctum , we wish all possible success in the ordeal which our philosophical friends must soon undergo. Realizing his great zeal and interest in furthering the welfare of the STYLUS, we, for our part, assure him that we shall strive not only to keep the Domi column at its present high standard, but even to surpass that standard if it be in any manner possible for our poor efforts. The May devotions are held daily in the upper church during the last fifteen minutes of the afternoon session. The instructions for the first week have been given by Father Rector. It is a laughable yet inspiring sight to behold our staid and decorous chemists bustling around at 1.45 p. m. when the bell rings for church. Precipitates are thrown here and the...
ALUMNI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1896
ALUMNI. THE younger graduates are displaying as much enthusiasm as their elders in that rapidly growing organization, the Knights of Columbus. Two new Councils were recently established in Boston, and the members in each case chose a Boston College graduate for the highest honors. John D. Drum, '9O, is Grand Knight of Shawmut Council, and William A. Murphy, '9l, holds the same rank in Franklin. It is worthy of note that the last named Council besides numbering several of the graduates 011 its rolls has chosen three of them, all Fulton Debating Society prize winners, to the most honorable offices. The other two are Joseph C. Pelletier, '9l, who is Deputy Grand Knight, and John J. Kirby, '95, the Chancellor. Dr. Francis M. O'Donnell, 'B2, has been elected Medical Examiner for the new Newton Council of the same order. A call has been issued for the first meeting of the executive committee to make arrangements for the annual dinner of the Alumni Association. The members are enthusiastic...
CLASS NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1896
CLASS NOTES. CLASS OF '96. An unusual seriousness seems to pervade the atmosphere of the seniors' class-room, affecting them to such a degree that the)* appear rather solemn and truly philosophical; due, no doubt, to the additional study exacted by the repetition. Short sessions have been granted since the reviews began. It is gratifying to observe that some of the seniors, though engaged in philosophical inquiries, find much pleasure in the study of the classics. An interesting and instructive lecture 011 Homer was recently delivered before the Young Ladies' Club of Roxbury, by David A. Scanned, in which he delineated the peculiar characteristics and beauties of the blind bard in a manner pleasing to the audience and creditable to himself. John H. Mullen of Waltham has been appointed valedictorian ; the philosophy essays were awarded to James P. Warren of Marlboro and Louis J. Potts of Charlestowu, while Simon F. Cox of Lowell has the honor of delivering the scientific essay. CLASS...

ATHLETICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1896
ATHLETICS. IT seems to us an unpardonable shame that the efforts to place athletics on a firm basis have not met with more generous co-operation from the alumni, and the greater part of the students. The graduates and undergraduates have had two opportunities of manifesting their loyalty at the indoor meeting and at the junior play yet their attendance was anything but flattering. The play was given expressly for the benefit of athletics, and a large sum might have been realized, had the association exerted itself, and taken more than a passive interest in the affair. As it is, the attendance from the student body was so small, it is with diffidence that those in charge of athletics will ask for a like privilege. The production was of a very high order, and the alumni could have at least retained the two tickets sent them by the committee. They are evidently " laudatores temporis acti," believing that if athletics could not be made successful in their day they never can be. This is ...
UMPIRES FOR COLLEGE GAMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1896
UMPIRES FOR COLLEGE GAMES. " Enjoyment in the inter-collegiate baseball games has been marred this season by dissatisfaction with the work of umpires. We are glad to state that with a single exception no complaint has been made of the judgments as a whole on the home grounds. This is due to the fact that the management has been unwilling to economize at the expense of the satisfaction of the audience or the visiting team and has employed, for the most part, the best umpire available. There is often the feeling on the part of a nine away from home that a man has been picked up to umpire the game simply because he is the most easily available man who has a passing knowledge of the game and not because of any peculiar fitness for his delicate task. Against such an evil, sometimes unavoidable under the present method, the visitors have no protection and cannot protest with grace until the mischief is done, and neither team has been honestly treated. If the colleges of the East, which me...
EXCHANGES [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1896
EXCHANGES Assu MING, with the present edition, the Ex-man's corner in the sanctum, we repeat the sentiment of our predecessors, in extending to all our new acquaintances a hearty welcome. To our immediate predecessor, who has been promoted to the dignity of Editor-in-Chief, we extend our sincerest felicitations and hope that the success which marked his management of the Exchange column will characterize his work in the Editorial department. The Mountaineer reaches us with a bright new cover and equally elaborate in its contents. " The Spirit of the Twilight " is full of music, and the rhythmical flow of '' The Song of the Scythe '' shows that the mountain air must be conducive to the muses. "The Genius of James Fenimore Cooper" is an excellent review of the American novelist's works, and reminds us of the happy days we spent in casting our lot with the " Red Rover " or following, in fancy, the trail of the " Deer Slayer." "The Vision of Sir Launfal," is a masterly criticism of Lowe...
SOCIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1896
SOCIETIES. AN unusually successful year of labor of the Fulton Debating Society was brilliantly ended on the evening of Thursday, April 30, by its Seventh Annual Prize Debate. The College Hall was well filled by an attentive and appreciative audience. Over the stage were hung the national colors and the maroon and old gold of Boston College. Shortly after eight o'clock, the Reverend President, accompanied by the judges, General Francis A. Walker, LL. D., President of the Mass. Institute of Technology, (Chairman), Honorable Winslow Warren, Collector of the Port of Boston, Samuel H. Hudson, Esq., John G. Blake, M. IF, and Michael J. Dwyer, Editor of Donahoe's Magazine, entered the hall and took seats in the centre. Almost immediately, the presiding officer, Francis J. Barnes, M. I)., 'B4, President of the Boston College Alumni Association, and the four debaters stepped upon the stage. In a short address, the presiding officer traced the career of the Fulton Debating Society from its h...
