NOËL. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1896
NOËL. Hark ! yonder o'er the snow-waste comes the peal Of joyous Christmas bells to greet the ear ; And list! sweet angel voices blending clear, From columned choirs on high do anthems steal: " Venite adoremus ; let us kneel! " Thus fervent hearts the Babe Divine revere. The humble shepherds bow, and Magi sere Their treasures fair to Christ the Prince unseal. How sweet the thought that all these gladsome rays Should gleam from out that lowly birth; Yet dearer far, that Prince of Heav'n and Earth Should come, Redeemer of our sinful ways; That seraph bands should sound the clarion shrill: " Peace, Peace on earth, to men of goodly will!" —JOHN B. DOYLE, '99.
A REMINISCENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1896
A REMINISCENCE. 1 WO full decades, less a year, since the first graduating class left the hallowed portals of old B. C. ! Twenty years of the battle of life now over for the boys of '77 ! And right manful has been the struggle, and right honorable has been the career of my old classmates. Trials, troubles, difficulties have been met and conquered, and to-day we may indulge in a little retrospect with pleasure. " Spina etiam grata est, ex qua spectatur rosa." But, ah me ! there is again the bitter sweet. All is well to-day , but to-day is twenty long years removed from the happy graduating night of '77. And we have moved on twenty years ! Why, we are Ancients and Honorables ! We must seem like the old heroes of the classics to the youngsters of to-day. It is really a serious, if not a sad thought, this terrible flight of time. How short it seems since we were students together in old B. C., and it is twenty long 3'ears ago ! " Truditur dies die, Xovaeque pergunt interire lunae." Well...
ON MY SISTER'S DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1896
ON MY SISTER'S DEATH. O, God, to think that her beautiful eyes, Her beautiful eyes are turned to dust: And down in the ground with the worm she lies, Her splendor faded, and turned to rust! O, God, to think that her beautiful face With its golden glow and its tender bloom, The face of the fairest of Eva's race Is shut forever away in the tomb! To think that her beautiful saintly hands Are food for the slimy things of the mould ; And her rich brown hair with its silken strands Shall turn into clay in the coffin cold! That her golden heart in the dust lies dead : And the pulses that swiftly beat for me Are as silent now in their sleep of lead, As silent now as the shells by the sea ! That her liquid, luscious, light little laugh Like the thrush's whistle, so full of mirth, Is froze fore'er ; and her throat with its scarf Of satin and silver is turned to earth! O, God, to think that forevermore That beautiful sister is dead to me ; And never again, by field or by shore, Her pensive and...
SOPHISTS AND SOPHISMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1896
SOPHISTS AND SOPHISMS. THE great movement started by the sophists in the ancient world, mentioned in the last issue of the STYLUS, was really the beginning of our modern educational systems. The benefits which it conferred on the intellectual world can hardly be estimated. It had, however, one fault which tended to offset in other directions whatever good followed the efforts of the new teachers. At the bottom of the whole movement lay the principle that the mind of man could not attain to objective truth. Success was the only object for which one might worthily strive success in the civil life. In effect, this principle declared there was neither justice nor injustice, neither right nor wrong. How such a doctrine would influence the sophists' exposition of the various branches of knowledge, it is not difficult to see. In one, at least, it was the means of affixing to the school the reproachful idea it conveys to-day. The sophists became mere quibblers in dialectics. The}' were accu...
HOW ABSURD! [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1896
HOW ABSURD! It is all very well for our teachers to tell, Byway of their tales adorning, Of scholars who rise, with wide open eyes, At five o'clock in the morning; And of ambitious youths who search for deep truths, The charms of their warm beds scorning, Before the sun shines, to study their lines, At five o'clock in the morning. But, between me and you, it is all untrue; Believe not a word of such fiction: To no scholar alive, does the finger of five Bring lesson, or freedom of diction. The cold sombre books might come down from their nooks And open their wide pages yawning; But the poor sleepy boys, would they leave dream's joys, At five o'clock in the morning? It may not be wrong for a youth in a song To arise when the morning is hazy; To work at his Greek till he hardly can speak, But the thought sets a real boy crazy. For how can he work and no duty shirk If, in spite of all honest warning, He gets out of bed, and his room, and his head, At five o'clock in the morning? It is a...
THE PUBLIC FESTIVALS OF GREECE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1896
THE PUBLIC FESTIVALS OF GREECE. THE great public festivals, forming an interesting part of Grecian life, helped largely to add a certain attractive cheerfulness to the Hellenic character. Seriousness may be said to belong peculiarly to Northern nations, and it is considered an important attribute of religious feeling among them; but the Greeks of old were no more disposed to be serious at religious ceremonies than on other occasions " for the gods themselves love sports," says Plato. On festive days, therefore, the sacrifices were offered at an early hour, and the remaining time was devoted to popular entertainments. The manner in which these entertainments were observed, depended in a large degree on the character of the presiding deity, and on the situation of his sanctuary. At Olympia, for example, music was not numbered among the contests ; while Apollo's festival consisted almost entirely of musical exercises. The Grecian festivals which attained more than ordinary reputation, ...
TRANSLATION OF HORACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1896
TRANSLATION OF HORACE. BOOK 1., ODE 3. O ship, that owest Athens' shore, Our Virgil to thy care consigned; Him, the solace of my mind, Deliver safely, I implore. May Cyprus' queen, then, be my guide, And Helen's starry brothers shine; May Aiolus his winds confine, Save one to speed thee o'er the tide. A heart of oak and brazen cast Had he who first put bark to sea; Nor feared when struggling mightily The south wind with the northern blast: Nor yet the Ilyads sad and drear, Nor Notus, greatest power to raise • Or calm at will the Hadrian waves; What death, in sooth, did this man fear, Who saw, with eyes that still were dry, The hideous monsters of the deep Upon the swelling billows leap, Who did the hidden rocks defy? In vain a god, as wise as strong, Did earth by sundering sea divide, If vessels cross the sacred tide. The human race dares right and wrong, And in its pride will do or die: The bold Prometheus unawecl Brought fire on earth by evil fraud, And stole it from its home on h...

EDITORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1896
EDITORIAL. THERE is, perhaps, no season of the year which is looked forward to by all classes with more genuine pleasure than the happy days of the glad Christmas-tide. It is at this time that the pent-up sympathies of humankind seem to burst their barriers and go forth to the poor and lowly oi every race ; men lift themselves above the sordid reckonings of every-day life, take broader views of human life and action, and are moved to the contemplation of higher and better ideals than things of time. The years may have dealt harshly with the pretty holiday customs ol ancient days, but deep down underneath the surface ol things the old spirit is living still. It finds its exemplification in student-life by the gathering of classes around the festive board, by singing old songs, and talking ovei the happy incidents of college life. To all the students the STYLUS extends its warmest Christmas greetings. The STYLUS has invited a few of the oldest Alumni to write a reminiscence of the ear...
ALUMNI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1896
ALUMNI. Boston College has again been honored in the selection of Rev. John T. Creagh, '9l, to fill the vacancy in the faculty of the Catholic University at Washington, caused by the resignation of Rev. Dr. Peries. Father Creagh is at present in Rome, where he has been following a special course of study at the American College since his ordination in September, 1895. It is probable that he will remain in Europe until he completes this course of preparatory study, after which he will return and begin his work at the University as an assistant professor in Canon Law. Those who knew Father Creagh as a student in the College and Seminary expected great things of him, but even they are surprised that he should make such a rapid advance. 111 this, however, he is emulating that other alumnus, Rev. Dr. Edmund T. Shannahan, 'BB, who has been teaching in the philosophical department of the University for two years. It is certainly noteworthy that two of the youngest members of the faculty of...
EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1896
EXCHANGES. THE Mountaineer is always interesting, but the Alumni number is particularly so. For us here at Boston, it has an especial interest, inasmuch as it gives, about a member of our own faculty, some information which we are glad to receive. Father Boursaud, who graduated at the Mount in '62, studied English Literature there under the famous George H. Miles. Professor Miles had his pupils write a class song, which was to be sung at the Commencement; and young Boursaud won the honor. The song became so popular and was so well known at the time that, after the lapse of thirty years and more, graduates are found repeating it from memory in afterdinner speeches. Indeed, it must have been comparatively easy to write good prose or poetry in such an atmosphere, amid such scenery, and under such distinguished Professors as Mount St. Mary's could boast of in those days. The Mount has always been the home of the muses, the mother of eminent men. Among many other good things in the Alumn...
ATHLETICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1896
ATHLETICS. Thanksgiving Day closed the most brilliant foot-ball season Boston College has ever known. The glorious contests which the team had placed to its credit were crowned by a victory over the men from Beacon Hill ; and success, which up to this point had only been partial, was made complete. True it is, three games are counted against us; yet they detract nothing from the merit of the season's work. Two of the defeats were administered by athletic clubs especially strengthened to meet us; while Tufts was the only college eleven to take us into camp. This game was played under the most adverse conditions, and it is acknowledged that this defeat did a great deal for the ultimate success of the eleven. Had we won this game, the team would have continued to play without a second eleven, the real practice it needed defensive work —would have been neglected, and our boys would have been unable to hold Worcester for downs on the one foot line, or the B. U. giants for repeated downs ...
SECOND HALF—B. C. vs. B. U. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1896

Macte Brick ! transisti bene Carceres invictus. Non ex luto sed arena Later iste fictus. Goal, a goal! Ah quis tentabit? Ecce Landriganum ! Habet! Habet! Tibi stabit Sempiternum fanum. B. C. Rah!—B. C. Rah! Ter et ter tollamus ; Sumus populus, we are, Io triumphamus. —PLAUSOR RADICATUS.
SOCIETY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1896
SOCIETY NOTES. On the 18th of the current month, the third preliminary debate of the year was held in the rooms of the Fulton Debating Society. That the establishment of a National University would advance the true interests of education in the United States, was the question chosen for discussion. Henry M. Brock, '97, and David G. Supple, '9B, urged the establishment of such an institution by Congress; while Dennis W. J. Brown, '97, and Benj. F. Teeling, '9B, opposed any such movement. John A. Brewin, '9B, officiated as critic of the meeting. William D. Nugent, '99, was elected at a recent meeting of the society to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Charles T. O'Brien, '97. George A. McUaughlin, '9B, John B. Doyle, '99, and Francis R. Mullin, 1900, will constitute the Literary Committee for the ensuing three months. As was stated in the last issue of the STYLUS, Shakespeare's "King Richard II." has been chosen for the annual mid-year play of the students. It will be noti...
RECENT SCHOLARSHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1896
RECENT SCHOLARSHIPS. Rev. Michael Dolan, Rector of the Church of Our Lady at Newton, has founded a scholarship at Boston College for the benefit of the Grammar or High School of that parish. The late Father Michael F. Flatley, Rector of the Church of the Immaculate Conception at Maiden, founded a scholarship for the benefit of the Parochial School of that parish.
CLASS NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1896
CLASS NOTES. CLASS of '97. The Philosophers still continue to study with a determination and persistency which has surprised and pleased their friends, and set an excellent example for the rest of the college. The number of men gaining a percentage over ninety-five is exceptionally large, and the suppressed murmurs of applause attested the good will of the students. The philosophic circle has proved an admirable incentive to study, and the disputations are becoming more interesting. CLASS OF '9B. With Croker playing end, Landrigan tackle and White half-back, '9B well may claim a good share of the credit of the victory over B. U. All three have played 011 the team for several s'ears, and their merits received a just recognition 011 their entrance to the class-room Monday morning. Manager Brewin contributed very much to gain the victory by infusing spirit into the team, and imparting to them some of his confidence in their playing. All election of officers was recently held and the fo...
