FUIMUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1897
FUIMUS. Go to the once loved bowers ; Wreathe blushing roses for the lady’s hair : Winter has been upon the leaves and flowers They were ! Look for the domes of kings; Lo! the owl’s fortress or the tiger’s lair ; Oblivion sits beside them ; mockery sings They were! Waken the minstrel’s lute ; bid the smooth pleader charm the listening air ; The cords are broken and the lips are mute They were! Visit the great and brave; Worship the witcheries of the bright and fair ; Is not thy foot upon a new-made grave ? They were ! Speak to thine own heart; prove The secrets of thy nature, what is there ? Wild hopes, warm fancies, fervent faith, fond love— They were! We too, we too must fall; A few brief years to labor and to bear: Then comes the sexton, and the old trite tale, We were. Winthrop Mackworth Praed.
TRANSLATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1897
TRANSLATION. Arborum gratas pete rursus umbras; Fac rosas nectas dominse capillis ; Ast hiems floras foliumque visit, — Jamque fuerunt! Regias aulas repetas übique ; Noctuae turrim, tigris ecce lustrum ! Lambit haec Lethe, Jocus ipse cantat Ilia fuisse! Suscita vatis citharam tacentem ; Aerem attentum rapiat disertus ; Frangitur nervus labiumque mutum Ilia fuere ! Visita magnos pariterque fortes ; Quidquid est pulchrum venerare sodes ; Nonne pes tangit tumulum recentem ? Ilia fuerunt! Cor tuum spectes, animum tuere Quid revelasti ? tua vota cara, Spes, fidem, pulchras species, amorem Moxque fuerunt! Nos oportebit moriamur ipsi; Ad laborandum spatium pusillum ; Tunc erit finis, solitumque dictum, Nosque fuisse! Joseph R. Williams , 'gg.
TEST OF APOSTOLIC SUCCESSION. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1897
TEST OF APOSTOLIC SUCCESSION. (Competitive Essay). QUESTION which has attracted world-wide attention of late, is that 1 of the “ Validity of Anglican Orders.” Leo XIII. has just refused to recognize the validity of those orders, and consequently, the expectation of many an Anglican adherent has come to naught. Many had deluded themselves into believing that the claim of the English Church to legitimate descent from the primitive Church was so strong that the Pope could not do otherwise than decide in its favor when the question of validity was submitted to his decision. It is easy to conceive what disappointment the decision must have caused, all protestations to the contrary, notwithstanding. It is hard to understand what real consolation our Anglican friends hoped to derive from a contrary decision. For, even if Leo XIII. had declared for, instead of against validity, still the Church of England would not have been entitled, even then, to claim Apostolic succession. Simple validit...
DAWN. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1897
DAWN. Over the hills the morning breaks, The pearl-clouds haste away ; Faint lies the mist on the wood-girt lakes, Earth golden turns from grey. Far in the west the shadows fade, Where dim the mountains lie; From out its sheath God draws the blade Which flashes o’er the sky. W. /. H.
THE CRUCIFIXION. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1897
THE CRUCIFIXION. O’er Heaven’s vault the clouds of darkness glide; The quaking earth affrights the guilty Jew; The dead arise and walk the earth anew, When Calvary beholds Christ crucified With thorn-crowned head, and lance-thrust in His side. But hark the words that pierce the darkness through: “ Forgive them, for they know not what they do.” He bows His head and God for man has died. O blessed Lord! with all Thy power divine, A greater proof of love Thou couldst not give Than thus to die for fallen human kind. O prythee guide these erring feet of mine, That in Thy favor I may move and live, And in thy pierced side may refuge find. Edmund D. Daly , ’pp.
HAPPINESS, NOT MATERIAL PROGRESS, THE END OF CIVIL GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1897
HAPPINESS , NOT MATERIAL PROGRESS, THE END OF CIVIL GOVERNMENT. ( Continued). HE disposition of the people to value every thing by its po\t r er to satisfy their wants with the least expenditure of labor, is manifest from experience. From time to time the daily journals teem with reports of new inventions. Of late the famous X-Ray flashed for a time upon the admiring people. Glaring headlines and outbursts of anticipated wonders heralded its arrival. People who heretofore scorned the idea of miracles, thought that the age of miracles had arrived. The outlook was one of such promise that the millenium seemed at hand. But its reign of wonders passed away. Acetylene gas succeeded and, in turn, solicited our attention. The untold marvels which, in use, it would affect, cease to be any longer the theme of interested capitalists. But why this amazement ? What next will come to arouse us is but the secret of a day ! Are the public really interested? That they are is evident from their all-...
THE BOYS OF SHAKESPEARE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1897
THE BOYS OF SHAKESPEARE. The Noble Boy. jHROUGHOUT Shakespeare’s plays, it is a noteworthy fact, that while in some there may be dispersed, here and there, phrases at which we might now be tempted to frown, still all of his juvenile characters present, in the most charming colors, finely finished pictures of innocence. This pre-eminent trait of Shakespeare’s boys is so widely developed and forms such a contrast to his more mature characters, that even the most casual reader will be immediately struck by it. But in reading the “Merry Wives of Windsor ” and “King Henry 1V.,” it occurred to ns that Robin, page to Falstaff, is an exception to the general rule. A cloud was thrown across his early days by his association with robbers and men of low character. He lived a life anything but in accordance with the lives of Shakespeare’s other boys ; but his reformation and his death in defence of his camp make amends for his earlier faults, and reinstate him in his proper place among Shakespe...
SAVED BY RUIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1897
SAVED BY RUIN. The Buried Cities of Vesuvius : Herculaneum and Pompeii. By John Fletcher Horne, M. D., D. Sc. London : Hazei.l, Watson and Viney. HE author of this handsome little volLjmm time had heard of the Stylus, lldaßeSl though living far' away in a remote country town of England. He asked for a number containing an article on a certain classical subject, and now in return he sends us a copy of his latest work as a mark of his appreciation and gratitude. The book is neatly bound and is full of interesting information for lovers of the Latin and Greek Classics. It treats of the Eruptions of Vesuvius; the Re-discovery of Pompeii and Herculaneum; of Handicrafts, Literature and Art; the Social Life of the Romans; of Marriage, Divorce, Death and Burial. In describing the social life of the Romans the author shows his good sense by not going too much into detail : there is nothing in the whole book which could offend the most delicate conscience, and consequently it may safely be pl...

EDITORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1897
EDITORIAL. has been said of late regarding IrKal c °ll e g e spirit, and it does not seem out of place at this time to consider what is meant by it, what are its obligations, what its advantages, and how far it should enter into the life of every student. College spirit, crudely defined, is that lo)ml feeling for one’s Alma Mater which prompts the student to do all in his power to promote her interests, and to extend her influence. It is essentially founded upon self-sacrifice. While the student is unwilling to forget personal considerations, to sink his individual preferences, and work with whole-hearted zeal for the common good, there can be no college spirit, because there are lacking that humility and generosity upon which self-sacrifice is based. College spirit requires, too, that the student shall give of his time and energy to advance her interests, even though this be done at the sacrifice of that which is more pleasing; for speech that is not backed up by earnest work is of...
DOMI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1897
DOMI. gS|||pj'R. James J. Walsh, a layman, has lately IrlfiP ta^en c^iar g e Middle Grammar in addition to his class of First French, Mr. Walsh is a native of Newfoundland, has studied in France and Italy, and speaks both languages fluently. The Stylus is now on sale at the Pharmacy of Mr. Frederick L. Pratt, Ph. G., which stands on the corner of Columbus and Massachusetts Avenues. Our little periodical does not look out of place beside the more ambitious magazines either on Mr. Pratt’s window or at the Public library. Father Callanan of Newton Lower Falls invited Father Brownrigg to preach for him on March 17. The local papers were very enthusiastic about the sermon. Father Brownrigg made part of his college course in Europe and the remainder at Boston College from ’7O to ’73, in which year he entered the Society. He and Father Callanan studied here together. Father Hearn, our Prefect, now gives the weekly lecture in Christian Doctrine to the College classes, instead of Father Rect...
ATHLETICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1897
ATHLETICS. season of ’96 and ’97 has been an auspicious one in the athletic annals of Boston College. The many creditable achievements inscribed therein shine forth in letters of gold, and cast an everlasting lustre over the dimmer records of ths past. Not that these earlier efforts have been unsuccessful— far from it they have compassed all that they intended, and are the stepping stones on which we have risen to higher things. We in no wise despise the bridge that carried us over the stream, yet our advances have been so rapid, and our ventures so great, that this season, compared with our others, stands as a Triton among minnows. We have, like Caesar, cut through forests and impassable ways, and chronicled nothing but victories in our commentaries. Yet among all our records of valor and conquest, who will not concede the palm to the accomplishments of March 11, 1897, the day on which the planning of months reached its culminating point, and Boston College took a place among the a...
GREETINGS EXCHANGED. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1897
GREETINGS EXCHANGED. The Laureate from over the sea, Don’t you know, Has tendered a greeting to me, Do n’t you know. He vouches that my serenade Is equal to “ Jameson’s Raid,”* Though quite of a different grade, Don’t you know. I first sent a greeting to him, Don’t you know, With a copy of my little whim, Don’t you know. He mailed me his autograph then ; He scratches like all gifted men, But the scrawl may profit me when, You don’t know. Pindar Sappho Whiteman. ♦“Raid” should be “Ride,” but I cawn’t make it ryhme, don’t you know. — P. S. W.
SOCIETY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1897
SOCIETY NOTES. EVEN years ago the Fulton Debating Society established its system of prize debates, and from that time down to the present it has never failed to present the public yearly with one of these literary treats. We can safely say that it is the exercise “par excellence,” excepting the Senior Commencement, of the scholastic year; and that there is no other event in the history of the college that awakens such interest and enthusiasm among not only the student body but also the outside world. This year will be no exception to the rule, for the evening of April 27 has been chosen by the Faculty for this annual specimen and the participants are now hard at work. That the present debate will attract as much attention and excite as much enthusiasm as those of yore is not doubted for a moment. In fact the very suggestion of the question to be debated would instantly drive such a suspicion from our minds. In choosing the question for the annual prize debate, the society has always...
A REMONSTRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1897
A REMONSTRANCE. Mr. Class Editor : The “communication” from our friends in Section A created a great deal of amusement in the class. However, it needs no answer; for to those well acquainted with the actual case even the cleverly worded sentences of the “communication” cannot hide the shallowness of its reasoning. F'ather Rector has had experience in similar matters, so that at least he could retain his mental balance sufficiently, even in the excitement of the struggle, to make his award according to his convictions. However, if blood must be shed, let us, as in the days of old, leave it to six champions to decide, and then let History record the result. Let the champions be—say the Sullivanii and the Murphii. I remain, Sincerely for Rudiments B, Robert W. Coveney.
EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1897
EXCHANGES. IE congratulate the Villanova Monthly on the first number of its fifth volume. In form it is more artistic and up-to-date, while, in the variety and excellence of its contributions, it has made a nearer approach to what a college magazine ought to be. A lengthy Editorial column is an especial feature of the Monthly ; but, although the editorials are well written, they partake too much of the essay style, and thus lose much of their force. We believe that an editorial should be a vigorous and manly plea to awaken what is noblest in the reader’s soul, and to point out practical lessons for the reader’s consideration. The editorial, “ Here and Now,” is poetically beautiful but philosophically rather unsound. It breathes the epicurean doctrine of “eat, drink, and be merry, for to-morrow we die.” The Editor disparages the idea of looking “ Over Yonder,” and advises us to find our happiness in the present, the “ Here and Now.” “What,” he weirdly asks, “can recompense us for the...
