A Snub. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 22 April 1881
A Snub. ,r I : WAS at the Bachelor's Ball they met, X Stood next in the first set of Lancers, He liked her looks, and she the same As they moved round among the dancers. He asked a friend to introduce, And found her bright, yes even clever, A typical society girl, Who chattered on and on forever. He was a Boston man, he said, And felt exceedingly a stranger; "Ah! then I'll show you all the girls And warn you from impending danger." And then she pointed out "A Love," A " Hateful Thing"—a " Perfect Beauty." Until our friend, bewildered quite, Now laughed, now frowned from sense of duty. When suddenly a maiden fair Glided across their field of vision; Alarmed, she saw her partner start, Then seeming wrapped in dreams elysian, She heard him utter some strange words. " What did you say?" she spoke, quite loudly. " A daughter of the gods!" he said, Repeating it in accents proudly. She summoned all her pride of birth, Annoyed to have a conquest leave her For some girl whom she did not know...
Spring Activity in College. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 22 April 1881
Spring Activity in College. AST winter the Sophomore class elected a committee which should have entire charge of the "Burial of the Ancient." That committee, with its sub-committes, is as follows : John E. de Ruyter, Chairman; S. H. Esselstyn, H. J. Bruner, George H. Barnes, Sterling Rossiter, E. L. Pupke, and E. J. Levey. Committee on Music and Printing —J. E. de Ruyter and S. Rossiter. Committee on Torches and Beer —G. 11. Barnes and H. J. Bruner. Committee on Location and Decorations — E. L. Pupke, S. H. Esselstyn and E. J. Levey. At the same time George C. Palmer was elected Grand Marshal for the occasion, and last week the committee appointed H. L. Satterlee, Poet. Not long ago the President spoke against the Burial in chapel, saying that it was a mockery of a solemn Christian service, and had no claim to existence on account of its originality. He suggested that something in the style of a Roman Triumph might be substituted, which would fulfill the same purpose and have the c...
Spring and her Poets. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 22 April 1881
Spring and her Poets. BY CRUCIBLE. T HAD read about them —these poets; I had heard them spoken of; how they were born to die a natural death by having their long yellow locks parted in the middle by an editor with a club; how they wrote poems in which " sun flowers" rhymed with "tomato can; " how they always had dreamy eyes and short pantaloons; —but I had never seen one —'till Fortune smiled upon me, and I met —a spring poet. One day I was travelling in the Alps [this is a lie, but "the Alps" doesn't sound bad, you know], and, save for the perpetual creaking, jarring, and jouncing of the rickety carriage, the incessant chirping of a hundred insects, and the continuous jabbering of the driver, all was quiet; when suddenly we were interrupted by a voice that came from the bushes : " Hi, there ! give us a ride!" The driver stopped his nags, and almost immediately afterwards the shrubbery parted, and there stood before us a young man, remarkable, now that I think of him, only in the fa...
A Serenade. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 22 April 1881
A Serenade. SEE, love, the moon in silver splendor Floods with her light the summer skies. Together you and I are floating Where the lake in shadow lies. Upon my breast thy head lies pillowed, Thy rosy lips are close to mine. Can I refrain from showering kisses While thy white arms my neck entwine ? Thy liquid, Southron eyes, my beauty, Gleaming with love's divinest flame, Through all my frame send thrills of pleasure, So sweet the story they proclaim. Now their curly, sweeping lashes Essay their glory half to veil, The orient of thy face is crimson, Love's early morn thy blushes hail. J. B. T

Two Versions. [FROM THE GERMAN OF HEINE.] [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 22 April 1881
Two Versions. [FROM THE GERMAN OF HEINE.] A RHYME OF THE OLD TIME. FORGOTTEN are my verses— How could it different be? Thou hast my heart so lightly tossed Into life's waving sea. Forgotten are my verses— Why should it different be ? I bear in my heart so many woes, And then —Beloved—thee. A RHYME OF THE TIME. FORGOTTEN are my verses— How could it different be? I bear in my pocket-book many bills, But never a check from thee. Forgotten are my verses— Why should it different be ? I hear you haven't a single cent; No girl without money for me. J. B. T
WILBUR of WILLIAMS:* A Simple Story of College Days. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 22 April 1881
WILBUR of WILLIAMS:* A Simple Story of College Days. By Cornicula. CHAPTER XIII. T A HE third day of college found all settled down to work. Knots of freshmen, discussing the methods of studying to please the professors, became fewer and fewer. The older classes had been too busy as yet to "go around" much, but about dusk a party of seniors coming down the road, started "In de mornin', in de mornin' by de bright light." Heads popped out of windows and the crowd began to grow. A hundred; then two hundred. Louder. Louder. " When Gabriel blows his trumpet in de mornin'." " In senior year we take our ease, Fol de rol, rol, rol, rol." " The mountains, the mountains ; we greet them with a song," etc., etc. How glorious is student life. Grave old seniors with cracked voices caught the enthusiasm. (Sing boys ! Sing while you can. A little while, and the trials of life will bend your shoulders and chill your hearts.) A half hour of uproarious song and the crowd moved over the hill and began ...

CORRESPONDENCE [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 22 April 1881
CORRESPONDENCE DEAR SPECTATOR : JT is an oft repeated complaint that our boat club and various athletic associations are in urgent need of money, and the students are periodically requested to hand over subscriptions of four and five dollars, for which in return they have the pleasure of well, being asked again in a few months. This method of raising money by begging invariably fails for a very obvious reason. Many of the students take no interest in rowing and foot ball and care little whether those sports live or die, and so refuse to give where they receive no compensation. Now it would seem that a far more reasonable way of raising funds would be to give a first rate "show." Some will now say this has already been done, and more often met with failure than success; so why attempt anything more in this line ? The answer is simply this : Heretofore the entertainments have been organized by a few individuals, laboring without the cooperation of their fellow students; too little adv...
Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 22 April 1881

On the door bell of one of the doors of St. Luke's Hospital is to be seen the following rather curious notice: "FOR ACCIDENTS ONLY PULL HARD." DURING the excavations now in progress, an old well was unearthed —a relic of asylum days, we are told. It was full of water, and Dr. Chandler found its depth to be fifty-one feet. S. H. ESSELSTYN, president of the sophomore class, has left college. He, however, holds out to his friends the hope that he may return. FIVE hundred dollars has been promised the Burial Committee. With such...
School of Mines Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 22 April 1881
School of Mines Notes. A DOZEN men will take their final examination in qualitative analysis on Friday, April 21. REID, president of 'B4, has left his class. THE freshmen were on the river for the first time last Thursday. THE laboratories are almost unbearable in this warm weather ; but then think of June ! Whew ! MR. GOODWIN intends marking 'B4 on written reviews only, instead of on blackboard work, as heretofore. WE are glad to see that one professor at least has interested himself for the truly overworked second year men. We have no doubt that the matter, in the hands of Prof. Van Amringe, will come to a satisfactory end. "THE Mines Club," a new junior society, founded in 'B2, have just swung out with their pins. The men are, O.V. Dougherty, H. Feuchtwanger, E. E. Kalbfleisch, E. L. Young, W. H. Cooper, W. H. Singer, R. Octaviano. GREAT changes may be looked for in the School of Mines before next year. The standard of admission will be raised and new requirements added, (Latin, ...
