SOME OLD STUDENT SONGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1896
SOME OLD STUDENT SONGS. LIGHTNESS of heart has always been more or less a characteristic of the student. His is the springtime of life, and for him the future holds in store only the brightest prospects. He lives apart from the bustle and turmoil of the world, and its cares have not yet come to cool his ardor or to dispel his golden views He is full of enthusiasm and of jollity, and, in spite of the depth or absorbing character of his studies, he is inclined, cost what it may, to take as much enjoyment as possible from the fleeting moments. What wonder then that his joyous youthful spirits should often overflow in song ? What more natural way is there for him to give vent to his exuberant feelings, especially when he and his fellows are met 011 some festive occasion ? We are all familiar with the ways of our American students. We have heard much of their intellectual, and especially of their athletic achievements. We know and perhaps have often sung their songs, many of which posses...
A VOYAGE OF DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1896
A VOYAGE OF DISCOVERY. Now that yon have got it, what will you do with it ?" said Bill Chase, of the Seventh New York. I replied that I would wait until something turned up. This bit of conversation took place in the New York Athletic Club, 011 the twenty-fifth of August, 1904. The " it " in question was an air-ship built by Thomas Edison, Jr. The ship was built of a very light metal, called platinum ; it was sixty feet long and twenty feet wide ; on each side were two wings revolving about three hundred times a second. It was shaped like a boat, its motive power was electricity, and everything was covered with a torpedo net. One of the principal features of this ship was that it could sail in water just as well as in air; another that it was controlled by a rudder like the old-time sailing vessels. The above question was not answered until five weeks later, when a friend of mine happened to find a map of Alaska. On this map was a red spot, and inside this red spot was a blue one. A...
DOMI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1896
DOMI. WE have been requested to announce that the Society entitled the " P. G. M." celebrated their final meeting of the year on the morning of June n, from 11.30 A. M. to 12.30 P. M. A collation was given, at which representatives of the faculty, who had been invited, were present. Other members of the faculty, who had not been especially invited, honored the occasion for a few moments wiili their presence. Many of the students of the College are gaining fame as orators. Mr. Michael A. Butler, of the present graduating class, delivered the oration on the twenty-fifth anniversary of Rev. M. J. Masterson's ordination to the priesthood We are sure that Shakespeare was not present in a certain class-room when an article on the meaning and derivation of names was read. If he had enjoyed that good fortune, he might never have asked "What's in a name?" for, according to the author of the essay, it appears that the name of a member of the class, who is noted for " that tired feeling," sign...
COMMENCEMENT WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1896
COMMENCEMENT WEEK. THE BACCALAUREATE SERMON. ON Sunday, June 21, the Rev. P. J. Supple, D. D., 'BS, preached the baccalaureate sermon in the upper church. His enunciation was clear, his manner earnest and at times pathetic, and his matter solid and thoughtful. He took his text from Ecclesiasticus XL,111., 29-30: "The sum of our words is, He is all." The preacher said in part: "Your watchword must be 'He is all.' This must be the shibboleth inscribed upon your banner, the sentiment from which you must draw inspiration, the power which must evoke from out your souls the highest resolves of fealty and service. And you are prepared for the battle. You have been trained in a good school. You have at hand the weapons which are needful to make victory perch upon your banner. And if in the great intellectual and social warfare of which the whole world is the theatre, and in which you are to become participants, you do not win the spurs of knighthood, you will prove recreant to your trust an...
PRIZE NIGHT OF THE PREPARATORY SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1896
PRIZE NIGHT OF THE PREPARATORY SCHOOL. THE Preparatory Department held their Commencement, June 22, in the College hall. They treated the audience to seven speeches on "The Boys of Shakespeare." The school-boy, the shrewd boy, the gentle boy, the brave boy, the noble boy, the ideal boy, and the boy Shakespeare himself showed an exhaustive study of our greatest dramatist. It was a very intellectual treat indeed ; but a man should be all intellect and 110 body to appreciate it fully on a hot night. It would have been just the thing for a Boston audience in winter ; but with the mercury at 90°, it proved almost too much even for them. Or if it could be distributed over a whole week, it would have afforded a pleasant quarter of an hour for each evening. With one or uvo exceptions, the speakers were not the best in their department. They seem to have been selected more for their standing in class than for their elocutionary abilities; whereas the seven best speakers would be required to ...
THE COLLEGE PRIZE NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1896
THE COLLEGE PRIZE NIGHT. THE Undergraduates' Prize Night came off on Tuesday, June 23. As compared with the Junior Commencement it had several things in its favor. It had pleasant weather to begin with ; it had fewer and, with one or two exceptions, shorter speeches; the speakers themselves were superior to their younger brethren as a matter of course; they had, very probably, a more interesting subject for the average Commencement audience ; and last but not least they broke the monotony of speech-making bv singing old college songs at proper intervals. With all these advantages it is no wonder that the evening was so enjoyable. The subject was : " Education among the Greeks." The first speaker considered "Intellectual Training at Athens ; " the second, " Physical Education at Athens ;'' the third, '' The Public Festivals in Greece ;'' the fourth, "Moral Training of the Attic Greek ; " and the fifth, " The Refining Influences of Greek Literature." They viewed education under the th...
GRADUATION EXERCISES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1896
GRADUATION EXERCISES. E clip tlie following account from the Boston Herald for June 26 : With rounds of oratory and sweet strains of music, in the presence of prominent dignitaries of the church, state and city, last evening, the class of '96 from Boston College went out into the world. This occasion marked a new era in the history of the institution, both in regard to the exercises of the evening and in the number of graduates, which far surpassed that of any previous year. The college hall was very attractively decorated with the college colors of maroon and old gold, while the background of the stage was heavily draped with the national colors. The exercises of the evening opened at 6 o'clock with a banquet tendered to Archbishop Williams, Mayor Quincy and other prominent church and city dignitaries by the faculty of the college. Long before the opening of the hall exercises, the seniors, in their new caps and gowns, were omnipresent, attending to the every desire of their large ...
CLASS NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1896
CLASS NOTES. CLASS OF '96. The last days of the college career of the Class of '96 are rapidly drawing to a close, and with them approaches the graduation of the largest class that Boston College ever sent forth to be her representatives in the various w 7 alks of life. The class is composed of thirty young men, several of whom have, 011 many occasions, acted for the college on the debating platform, the dramatic stage and the athletic field. If any ill-feeling ever existed toward this class, it has entirely subsided and the entire student body of the college wishes them good-will and success. The class extends its heartfelt sympathy to their fellow class-mate, James P. Warren, on the loss of his mother, who died recently at Marlboro. A number of the class attested their condolence by attending the funeral. CLASS OF '97. The preparations for College Night are speedily progressing and everything promises a most delightful, instructive and entertaining evening. In addition to several ...
ALUMNI NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1896
ALUMNI NOTES. THE annual dinner of the Boston College Alumni Association was held at the Parker House, Boston, on the evening of June 18. In point of numbers it was no different from the past ones, there being about fifty present ; but for good fellowship and brilliant wit it has never been equalled. The secret of its great success was due to Rev. Joseph V. Tracey, 'B2, whose constant flow of wit kept the gathering at a pitch proper for the best enjoyment of the evening. At the business meeting these officers were chosen : President, Augustine L. Rafter, 'B2 ; first vice-president, Rev. James F. Gilfether, '80; second vice-president, Dr. J. J. McGuigan, 'B7 ; treasurer, Dr. John F. O'Brien, 'BB ; secretary, John D. Drum, '9O; historian, Daniel J. Gallagher, '92. Resolutions on the deaths of the Rev. M. J. Maloney, '9O; the Rev. M. F. Murphy, 'B3, and Jerome F. Harty, S. J., 'B7, were adopted. The prominent Alumni present included the Revs. M. J. Doody, '80; J. F. Cummins, '72; J. J....
ST. AUGUSTINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1896
ST. AUGUSTINE. Sero te cognovi, sero le amaii. Aug. Too late have I known Thee, 0 fountain of Truth ! In the mazes of error 1 have wasted my youth : Too late have I known Thee in sooth. Too late have I loved Thee, O infinite Good ! I have tasted of pleasure As deep as I would: 1 have slighted Thy beauty As far as I could: Too late have I loved Thee, my God. Better late than never Is an adage true as trite, May I cleave to Thee forever In the thickest of the fight, Till Angels come to crown me With a crown of dazzling light.

AN INCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1896
AN INCIDENT. Th K room looked bright and cheerful ; not so the faces of its occupants. They were college students at D College, and you would have known it by their room if not from the young men themselves. A fair type of the average college youth, they were tall and athletic, and seemingly not at all suffering from too much study. Yet worry and concern were 011 the faces of the two young men as they sat, in deep meditation, 011 each side of the table. Suddenly, one of them raised his head and exclaimed : " It's a beastly shame that he isn't 011 the eleven. I knew what it would come to as soon as Dude Williams got charge of affairs. The Dude is a good player and all that, but he has no right to turn a man down because he is working his way through. White is as good as Williams, anyway, and if he were not so retiring and unassertive he would be in Williams's boots to-day." "That's right," assented the other. "Williams is a snob and a cad, but what can you do about it? Almost every m...

The many compliments we have had from a large number of the Clergy on our Clerical Suits, are very gratifying to us. Our effort is to give them "Clothing in every way equal to custom-made, at much less than custom prices. L How well we-Jiave succeeded is best told in the large number of suits and overcoats we have sold the past twelve months to the Clergy, from all parts of New England. This season we are better prepared to serve them with a full line of medium and light weight suits, as well as thin coats and vests for hot weather use.
