INFLUENCE OF THE PROTEST ANT REFORMATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1897

INFLUENCE OF THE PROTEST ANT REFORMATION. |||i|l|HE most tremendous event of modern ||gKg| times, both in itself and its farreaching results, was the so-called Protestant Reformation, during the sixteenth century. It was one of the greatest revolutions the world has ever seen, affectum ' & as it did not merely a single nation, but all of Europe; nay, its influence has been felt among every civilized people. It was most emphatically a time which tried men's souls, when all were tested in the crucible of revolt and persecution, whereby the good were separated from the bad, the faithful from the unfaithful. Though brought about by seemingly trivial events, the Reformation was by no means suddeu or unexpected. Many causes, dating back for centuries, had combined to give it birth. They were as sparks smouldering here and there until the Renaissance fanned them into flames, which spread and grew into a conflagration beyond all control. Through the so-called dark and middle age...

THE LAST TIME AT THE PIANO. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1897

THE LAST TIME AT THE PIANO. Across the room with feeble steps and slow, To where her dearly loved piano stood, The young girl went, O whiter than the snow, And weaker than a wand of willow-wood. A beauty once, but beautiful no more, With hollow cheeks and sad and languid eyes, And limbs that scarce could bear her o'er the floor, And hands through which one might perceive the skies. She sate her down, and lightly o'er the keys, Ran her white fingers till they charmed to gold The noble instrument, and melodies, As sweet as songs of seraphim, out-rolled. O God ! those sounds, how beautiful they were ! How rich, how sweet, how silver-soft they fell! It seemed as if all heaven sang to her, And every star there was a tinkling bell. And in the room there was a fragrance fine, Like that of roses or of balsams sweet, As if the music of young Angeline Fell down in flowers all around her feet. And O! her face, her thin transparent face! How bright it shone, like living, glowing gold, As if, by...

EDITORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1897

EDITORIAL. HK STYLUS is glad to acknowledge its indebtedness to certain benefactors. IlilllSll And first of all comes Father Callanan, who has done so much, by pen and purse, to advance the interests, and ensure the prosperity, of his College paper. When the business management hesitated about incurring further expense by having cuts made to illustrate the Reminiscences, Father Callanan generously volunteered to pay for them himself. He little dreamt at the moment that his own picture should be the first to appear, and perhaps we owe him an apology for the fact. Two of the Alumni have a movement on foot, which promises to result in something worthy of our graduates, and to place THE STYLUS above the fluctuations of business and far beyond the wear and tear of time. Their plans, when sufficiently matured and tried, we hope to publish in some future issue. Nor are our friends confined to the Alumni. Mrs. M. F. Gavin of South Boston, who is noted for her numerous charities and generous...

ALUMNI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1897

ALUMNI. Sjpgßae AVING an unusually rich store of ll|P|ji Alumni news on hand for the October number of THE STYLUS, we were obliged to postpone for a later number anything more than a mere notice of the appointment of Rev. John T. Creagh, '9l, to the chair of Canon Raw in the Catholic University of America. It is certainly a source of great pleasure to Alma Mater that one of her Alumni, so recently graduated, should be found fitted to be called to such an important office in this great school. To those who knew John as a student at Boston College, however, it is not a cause of surprise, but rather one of intense pleasure, that the promises of his College days should be so fully realized in his early manhood. Father Creagh, like Rev. Dr. Shanahan, Alma Mater's other representative on the University faculty, is a product of Boston College in the fullest sense, for he made his preparatory as well as College studies in her halls. Born in Wakefield, Mass., March 7, 1870, he passed through...

DOMI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1897

DOMI. Class of Geology wishes to extend !<||i||| to Mr. Mulry, S. J., and Father Dawson, S. J., their thanks for the illustrated lecture given in connection with this class a short time ago. The Professor, Mr. Mulry, at the expenditure of much time and labor, procured a series of views describing corals and coral formations. Arthur J. White manipulated the slides while Mr. Mulry lectured. The lecture was greatly appreciated, and all hope for a repetition of this innovation in the near future. THE Rev. Father Rector has returned from his annual retreat, which he made at Holy .Cross College. EVEN if the present class in Physics does not evince as great a liking for Mechanics as their Professor would wish, still we may safely prophesy that when Electricity is reached, his most sanguine hopes will be more than realized ; that is, if we can put any faith in the prophecy, " Coming events cast their shadows before." What then is the shadow on which we base our assertion? This fa...

SOCIETY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1897

SOCIETY NOTES. HK opening debates of the Fulton De[M bating Society have proved to be very interesting. On October 8 the question, " Resolved that intercollegiate foot-ball promotes the best interests of Colleges," was debated on the affirmative by J. A. Brewin and G. A. MacLauglilin, on the negative by A. J. White and D. J. Supple. The affirmative won on the merits of the debate. J. B. Doyle was critic of the meeting. On October 15 the question, " Resolved that Hawaii should be speedily annexed to the United States," was debated on the affirmative by F. J. Carney and J. J. Hayes, and on the negative by E. P. Does.

Teeling and J. F. Walsh. The affirmative won. Benjamin F. Teeling performed the duty of c...

CLASS NOTES. Class of 'pB. HE annual specimen in Minor Eogic took place Friday, October 29, in the lecture hall. Father Rector, Father Macksey, Father Dawson, and Father Gasson constituted the examining board, and though the test was severe, the class reflected credit upon themselves and their Professor. Charles T. O'Brien of Woburn, and Henry Rooney of Springfield, 111., have joined the class, making the number thirty-four. At a meeting of the class Benjamin F. Teeling was elected President; David G. Supple, Vice-President; Bartholomew Coyne, Secretary ; and John Sheehan, Treasurer. An examination on motion, its kinds and effects, was given the other day to the Class of Physics in the College library.

EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1897

EXCHANGES. hasten to congratulate the Georgetown Journal on its new dress. It is very neat and unique in form, and cannot be accused of imitating any model that we know of. The contents seem to have improved also : in fact the reading matter is so interesting that we should never have suspected a loss of valuable manuscript by fire, if the editor had not let us into the secret. The large number of advertisements in the Journal almost makes our business manager jealous. Magazine has much improved under the editorial eye of Mr. Adams. There is plenty of pith and point in the articles, and they are all up to date. The illustrations, too, are extremely artistic and elegant, and the lady in charge of this department may well be congratulated on her energy and good taste. The College journal which best reflects the many amusing episodes of student life at a great institution of learning, is the bright publication which is issued weekly at Brown University. The humorous incidents frequentl...

ATHLETICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1897

ATHLETICS. GAIN we find ourselves in the heat of another athletic season. The first half is already finished, and as we pause during the intermission, a retrospective glance reveals the fact that we have been defeated oftener than we expected. The encouraging prospects of the early season have developed into rather disappointing realities ; and cherished hopes, nurtured by last season's success, have been blown to pieces by the winds of defeat. " It's an ill-wind, etc.," should be a source of consolation, however, as it was last year, when our team, after a certain defeat, took an unexpected brace, and finished a very creditable season. If history will repeat itself, and if the increased ardor stimulated by reverses will bring us another Thanksgiving Day victory, the past defeats ought to be forgotten, and the losses suffered counted as real gains in the way of athletic perseverance which perseverance, I need not be a prophet to say, will sooner or later lead to continued success.

BOSTON COLLEGE, 6 — HARVARD LAW SCHOOL, 0. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1897

BOSTON COLLEGE, 6 — HARVARD LAW SCHOOL, 0. November 6. Our eleven met the wearers of the Crimson on the South End Grounds, and defeated them in a game replete with fine runs and brilliant tackles. The score does not show the good work accomplished by our team ; for at the end of the first half the ball was on Harvard's two yard line, and when final time was called, we were within twenty yards of a touchdown. Furthermore by consulting a record of the plays, we find that Boston College rushed the ball 243 yards to Harvard's 46, during the first half, and 236 yards to Harvard's 95, during the second half. Holland and White were the conspicuous ground gainers. The former made a run of 15 yards for a touchdown, from which Brewin kicked a goal from White's punt out, four minutes after play was called. He followed up this good work by runs of 17, 45, 38, and 25 yards. White was not far behind Holland. He succeeded in making a dash for 65 yards, and two shorter ones of 20 and 25. The best t...

EPIGRAMS ON A LAZY STUDENT. I. He was so very, very meek, So prim and superfine, For breathings rough he hated Greek And could n't read a line ; And vulgar fractions made him sick, With premature decline. Thomas F. McGuire. 11. To be, in truth, a gentleman Is every student's aim ; To play, forsooth, the gentleman Is every student's shame. Herbert C. Ffrench. 111.

REMINISCENCES — (tenth Paper). [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1897

REMINISCENCES — (tenth Paper). MILITARY. first official announcement, made by the President of Boston College, in connection with the establishment of "drill**" as one of the college exercises, appeared in the Boston College catalogue for the academic year i869-'7o. Rev. Robert W. Brady, S. J., President at the time, put the subject in these words : "The State authorities having granted a supply of arms, a drill-master will be appointed, and due notice will be given as to the style of the uniform and the time by which it must be procured." As the boys of that day remember, there was a great deal of trouble and considerable delay before the style of uniform was decided on. Mike Ryan and his followers were decidedly set upon choosing a very showy and indeed a very expensive affair. Billy Brett, Jim Murphy, and some others favored a neat but at the same time a low-priced suit. Indeed the members of the Rhetoric and Poetry classes were, if anything, opposed to introducing the " drill "a...

IMITATION OF A CLASSIC CHORUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1897

IMITATION OF A CLASSIC CHORUS. (For close of Act 111., Scene i, "Julius C'cesar.") A O Death ! thou strong and ruthless potentate, Briareus of the hundred hands art thou ; Thy greed alone no man can satiate ; To thee alike the king and peasant bow. On fleeting time the hopes of mortals stand ; Through weary years they gain ambition's height; Then, Death, all ends beneath thy spectre hand. And stricken man perceives that Death is Might. Thus hast thou marred the haughty Caesar's aim, When Caesar's nod was law in ancient Rome ; When Caesar's hope was bent on kingly fame, Ah ! then, thou drav'st the murderous dagger home. Thou earnest not on German battle field, Nor when great Caesar crushed the valiant Gaul ; But when he thought his might would be his shield, Ah 1 Death, thou showed'st thyself the lord of all. B When Alexander aimed to rule the world, No greater soldier e'er had seen the light; From Thracian wilds to where the Ganges whirled, Nor king nor chieftain checked him in the ...

SENTENCE BUILDING IN THE SKETCH BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1897

SENTENCE BUILDING IN THE SKETCH BOOK. ;S the man who builds a house always starts at the bottom and builds up"fglPffll wards, so, too, may we say that in the building of his sentences in the Sketch Book, Irving, as it were, lays a foundation for them, adds thought after thought, until they finally form a structure of language, perfect in form and detail, and one which is well worth our while to study and imitate. The development we have just spoken of is shown in two ways; first, by a gradual growth of meaning in successive clauses, and secondly, by a corresponding increase in the length of the clauses. As an example of growth in sound we have the following taken from the author's history of himself: "I longed to wander over the scenes of renowned achievement, to tread, as it were, in the footsteps of antiquity —to loiter about the ruined castle to meditate on the falling tower —to escape, in short, from the commonplace realities of the present, and lose myself among the shadowy gra...

THE STORMING OF DARGAI RIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1897

THE STORMING OF DARGAI RIDGE. For soldier-valor, stirring till the last, And sacrifice of self in country's cause, For duty bravely done despite the cost, I fain would raise the voice of song in praise, And tell, in fitting accents, o'er again The noble deeds of simple, modest men Who stormed where frowned the cruel face of Death, And scaled and won the crest of Dargai Ridge. In battle line the English army stood, Nor word nor sound was heard from any side ; Each soldier's face was fixed and stern and pale. The gloom of coming battle gathered round, And Death's dark shadow fell athwart the ranks, Yet courage cheered the heart and fired the eye. Above, there rose a steep and shaggy ridge ; In all, from left to right, some mile or more, The foe its well-protected crest had manned To which there wound a rough and narrow path Widening into a clearing swept by shot. To storm this ridge seemed folly unsurpassed, Yet word had come: " Retake that ridge ere night." What wonder then if goodly...

THE PHANTOM OF THE BOOK. i|JU)«'RAMMAR again ! it is so tiresome, es(jM pecially those Greek endings, and the regular occurrence of the augment and reduplication. It was no wonder I felt sleepy, — and I gave another look at the page with its formidable column, and then slammed it down on a small table, and sat in a comfortable chair watching the grotesque shadows cast by the flickering flame. Suddenly I happened to cast my eyes towards the table and, to my astonishment, beheld several little figures standing beside my books. One advanced, leaped to the floor, and came towards me. My mouth opened with wonder. I was about to speak, but I was silenced by the figure, who all the while continued to grow larger and larger. I looked and beheld a man, rather tall, with luxuriant hair and a ruddy face, while a gown, all of white, was draped gracefully about his person. He stooped slightly as he walked, and I noticed he held in his hand a book, which he had picked up from the floor where I ha...

FALLEN ROME. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1897

FALLEN ROME. How desolate and cold thou liest there ! E'en Rome has met the common fate of all; Past are the glories of thy youth, proud Queen ! Still fair thou art and noble in thy fall. Slow creeps the wind aross the ruined plain, And dies in whispers at thy very feet; And ever as it sighs and moans in pain, Apt fancy catches echoes sad yet sweet. Still round thy ruined walls Fond spirits hover, As the violet's sweet breath Lingers forever. As the sun sinking low, Leaves behind a crimson glow, So thy fond memories Cleave to thee still. And ere the echo dies, the ruined wall Has passed it to the tower upon the height: The aqueduct extends its welcome arch And swells the whispering chorus of the night. No more resounds the tread of martial feet Across the ancient battle-ground of Rome ; No more the furious combatants engage With savage hordes abroad or foes at home. The very rocks are mouldering into dust; The air hangs heavy o'er the desert earth ; Like spectres grim the ruined wal...
