DOMI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1897
DOMI. On January 8, the philosophers gave a Latin disputation in the college theatre before Rev. Father Provincial, Rev. Father Rector, Father Gannon, the faculty and the entire body of students. Leo F. O'Neil opened the disputation with a paper on Truth and Certitude. He spoke from memory, used elegant Latin, and threw life and spirit into his delivery. Then Dennis Brown and John McEleney objected, while Henry Brock defended. They did remarkably well for college boys, and as Father Provincial said in his address at the end, their very mistakes, which were indeed few, showed that the specinfen was not got up for the occasion and was the result of long and thorough training. The objectors were clear, and the defender's answers were always to the point. The Provincial congratulated both the professor and students on the exhibition they had given of what Jesuit teaching can produce. Even the formidable objections of Father Rector and Father Macksey could not make the defender lose the ...
ALUMNI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1897
ALUMNI. Again we are called upon to announce the passing away of another Alumnus. Impartial death never fails to look for her quota, so that, as the body of graduates grows larger, the number who depart each year is becoming greater. It is a noticeable fact that nearly all the deaths of recent years have been among the clergymen, which would indicate that Boston College has graduated many worthy priests whose physical strength has not been equal to their zeal for labor in the vineyard of the Lord. The last one to succumb was Rev. Edward E. Clexton, 'B3, who died at his mother's home about noon on Saturday, January 9, after a long struggle with the dread disease which threatened to take him away several times within recent years. Of him it may be truly said that he killed himself by overwork; for it was due to this that he was taken down with pneumonia for the first time two or three years ago, and it was for the same reason that the fatal attack seized him about four weeks before hi...
CLASS NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1897
CLASS NOTES. Class of '97. As the merry season of Christmas approached, the philosophers cast aside their books, and with the spirit of good-fellowship strong in their midst, gathered round the fes-tive-board at Hotel Savoy to strengthen the bonds of friendship among them, and unite in reminiscences of the past and hopes for the future. At the head of the table sat the honored guests, Prof. Samuel R. Kelly. Dr. Francis J. Barnes, Rev. David W. Hearn, S. J., and Rev. Thomas I. Gasson, S. J. Dennis H. J. Brown, the president of the class, opened the festivities with a short speech, introducing John T. McEleney, the toast-master, whose witty remarks were thoroughly enjoyed by all. Patrick S. Cunniff, the editor-in-chief of the STYLUS, delivered a spirited oration; James H. Devlin read the class history, and John C. Sweeney recited the class ode. J. Albert Crowley was the poet of the occasion, and William F. Lyons, the prophet. Albert C. Mullin responded to the toast, "Athletics," Nicho...
ATHLETICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1897
ATHLETICS. The fourth annual indoor games for the class championship were held on December n, and resulted in a victory for the class of '9B. Their contestants won points in every event except the mile run, and as a result had no difficulty in winning the silver cup emblematic of class supremacy. Edward J. Grainger won four places, thereby placing many points to the credit of his class. He equalled the indoor record for the high jump, and could have gone much higher, had he been in condition. Robert Croker, Maurice Flynn, Thomas J. Grady and William J. O'Hara also contributed their share, the first three named each winning a first prize, and the last named, a second and a third prize. Robert Croker's foot-ball training had put him in good condition, and in the 25-yard dash he succeeded in doing 3 1-5 seconds —a college record. Though 110 other records were broken, the work of the athletes was good, considering the short training they had. The races were hotly contested, and the inte...
EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1897
EXCHANGES. THE MESSENGER OF THE SACRED HEART, which, by reason of the excellence of all its departments, both religious and literary, can justly claim to be one of the best Catholic family magazines of to-day, begins the new year with even brighter prospects than before. Under the title, "The Story of a Hover of Christ," the life and martyrdom of Ireland's Virgin Martyr, St. Ursula, are beautifully described. " Rome wards with Archbishop Segers," from the pen of one who, last year, delighted us with his sketches of the life of an American student at Rome, is an account of a voyage across the Atlantic with the late Archbishop, the Apostle of the far West. The conclusion of "The Prodigal," a serial which has interested the readers of the MESSENGER, ends as we expected, with the prodigal returning to the safest of earthly refuges, his mother's arms. " Some Religious Founders and Their Spirit," is a sketch of the lives of those heroic souls, who, in the face of persecution and death, la...

A GREETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1897
A GREETING. (To Rev. Thomas I. Gasson, S. J., on the taking oj his final vows, February 2, iB&lt;?y.) They deemed it much in Jewry long ago The firstlings of the flock to cull and slay, Or tithes of cummin, mint and anise pay. 'Twas much to sacrifice an ox or so, A bearded goat, a horned ram, a roe, In type of Him w T ho took our sins away; In proof that He whose breath can quicken clay, Is Ford of life and death, of weal and woe. All this was much in type : but tenfold more It is one's own dear self to sacrifice By triple vow ; for they who thus adore The Godhead, snap in twain the dearest ties That knit a man to man ; they cut to quick and core; A martyr's crown is theirs in Paradise. Jubilemus.
REMINISCENCES — (Continued). [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1897
REMINISCENCES — (Continued). MUSICAL AND EPISTOLARY. S this reminiscence is headed "Musi. E§gff|||| cal and Epistolary," it may interest the old boys to allow the living to talk to us through the long interval of twenty-four years. I have here before me two letters written by Arthur McAvoy, from Frederick; one under date of October 19, '73, and one under date of December 22, '73. A letter twenty-four years old is ancient history ; and as many of the old professors and the old boys are referred to by name, I will give these letters just as they were written: NOVITIATE, S. J., FREDERICK, OCT. 19, 1873. MY DEAREST PAT: I suppose"' you have, long ere this, lost all faith in the Boston novices, since they have, each and all, failed to answer a letter which, of all letters, was the most deserving of a prompt and ready reply. But I hope, my dear Pat, that your faith in us will be re-established when you consider the few opportunities we have of writing. In speaking, this forenoon, to Haven...
THE HERO OF RHODES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1897
THE HERO OF RHODES. The sea-breeze rustles softly by ; Night spreads her dark wings o'er the camps, And lights the watch-fires of the sky,— A myriad scintillating lamps. The leader of the Christian host Steps forth upon the tented field. No pomp of war his garments boast; Nor brand he bears, nor dinted shield; No harness balks the lithesome tread, No girdle binds the tunic white, No helmet crowns the noble head And flashes back Diana's light. He sees the vaunting crescent where The unbeliever's ramparts frown ; And will upon the morrow dare To go himself and tear it down. But now his thoughts to John he turns, The stout Crusader's patron saint, Him who gives strength while fury burns, And courage when the heart is faint. Be Thou our sword," prays D'Aubusson, As Thou hast ever heard our call; Smite once again for Christendom, Lest now the cross defeated fall. And, Mary, when our hope is low, Spread thou thy saving shield above, And ward us from the heathen foe By thy divine maternal ...
PHYSICAL CULTURE IN ANCIENT ATHENS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1897
PHYSICAL CULTURE IN ANCIENT ATHENS. is interesting, at times, to study the daily life of a great people, to compare their systems with our own, and to see how far we may with safety follow in their footsteps. If we were to select that nation from whose experience we might profit most, we should find ourselves contemplating the Greek. No other nation ever rose to such lofty heights, and in so short a time fell so swiftly and so far. Among refined people, Greece and culture have long been regarded as synonymous terms ; and yet there is no record in history of a people who devoted so much attention to physical training as did the early Greeks. And here lies the secret of Athenian refinement. The Greek knew what modern nations are but slowly learning to-day that no system of education can be complete which does not train every faculty of the individual. This is the only system to-day which educates in the true sense of the word ; and it was because the Greeks knew this and trained their...
TO THALIARCHUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1897
TO THALIARCHUS. ( Horace, Book 1., Ode 10.) Behold Soracte deep in snow, And see the bending forests bow Beneath their heavy burden now; I v o, frost has sealed the river's flow. Dispel the cold, the logs pile on, O Thaliarchus, do your part: Draw forth with far more kindly heart Old wine from Sabine demijohn. Entrust the rest to their decrees, Who lull the tempest far and wide, And lay the winds that lash the tide, Who calm the ash and cypress trees. To-morrow's cares seek not to know, And Fortune's gifts set down as gain; Nor happy love in youth disdain, Nor dancing while in manhood's glow. While gray moroseness leaves you power, Seek out the field and public square; Eet whispers in the twilight air Be sure to bless your trysting hour. Seek now the pledge from happy maid, And from her arms the gage unclasp; Or from her hand's ill-feigning grasp, Whose laugh her hiding place betrayed. Edmund D. Daly, 'pp.
RICHARD II. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1897
RICHARD II. (BKftjjlT has been often declared that genius has her own laws. Often, too, it is believed that men of genius differ in most respects from ordinary mortals ; that the genius produces his masterpieces almost by an act of the will; and that, unlike everyday folk, he does not have to labor unceasingly to attain perfection, but that success comes to him without an effort on his part, merely because he is a genius. This belief, though held at least implicitly concerning nearly all the great intellectual lights, is most widespread with regard to Shakespeare. How often have we heard that Shakespeare never re-wrote a single part of his works, and that he did not have to serve as an apprentice to Apollo. How absurd it is to think thus, is shown by even a slight acquaintance with Shakespeare and Shakesperian criticism. Shakespeare rose gradually to his greatest heights. Ben Jonson says of him : "Yet must I not give nature all; thy art, My gentle Shakespeare, must enjoy a part: For...
AN OPPORTUNITY LOST [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1897
AN OPPORTUNITY LOST A golden moment coined in Fortune's mints Fell in life's path and gleamed with wondrous tints. The mere reflection of its hidden power; An idling youth beheld it gleaming there, But, loth to stoop and seize the treasure rare, Alas ! it vanished with the fleeting hour. /.P. L., 'pp.
SONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1897
SONG. When I am dead, my dearest, Sing 110 sad songs for me; Plant thou no roses at my head, Nor shady cypress tree. Be the green grass above me With showers and dewdrops wet; And if thou wilt, remember; And if thou wilt, forget. I shall not see the shadows, I shall not feel the rain; I shall not hear the nightingale Sing on as if in pain. But dreaming through the twilight Which does not rise nor set, Haply I may remember, And haply may forget. C. R. TRANSLATION. Absit, amice, mihi carmen ferale sepultae; Neve cupressum atram, neu mihi pone rosas. Me super irriguum pluviis sit roreque gramen : Si velis, esto memor; si velis, immemor es. Nonpluviascernam, moestse nonarborisumbram, Tristia nec capiam quae Philomela canet. Et repetens inter caritura crepuscula fine Forte memor fuero, non ero forte memor. E. R.

EDITORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1897
EDITORIAL. TIT' H E new form of the STYLUS has considerably increased our expenses ; we trust it will also increase our subscribers. If the literary efforts of the young have 110 charm for grave graduates, the reminiscences which appear from month to month can not fail to interest them, provided there be any happy memories clustering about their college days. These reminiscences will continue to be published for some years yet. As soon as Father Callanan's elegant series of papers is ended, some other alumnus will give his contribution, and so on down the list. There may be a few who are too much occupied with other matters to concern themselves with college doings at all. If we only knew who they are, we should send some one of our persuasive young men with winning ways to pay them a special visit. We are convinced that in most cases our messenger would return not merely with a subscription, but with a neat donation. Fellow-students, keep your eyes about you. There is perhaps no pa...
DOMI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1897
DOMI. pj||p|ATHER Rache, the professor of first French, has been called to Provif.*-*-* dence to replace Father Hayes, whose delicate health obliges him to retire from active work. Father Hayes was formerly a student, and later a teacher at the College here. Father Rache's place is filled by Father Schmidt, who has been promoted from New York to Boston. Father Schmidt taught here for several years as a scholastic. "Rev. P. H. Callanan's Reminiscences in Boston College STYLUS are creating widespread interest. Father Callanan is an alumnus of the class of '77, and his well-written papers in the STYLUS recall many a happy incident and pleasant memory of those days. He is at present the much-beloved pastor of St. John's Church, Newton Lower Falls, where he has accomplished a world of good during his rectorship. Father Callanan, besides being a literary man, is a musician of high order, having introduced with great success congregational singing into his church, under his own personal di...
