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

EDITORIAL. pIpIIIIjUBSCRIBERS will please notice that subscriptions to the STYLUS are now due and that they will confer a great favor on the management by remitting for the same immediately. For some unknown reason such announcements have no effect upon many. If it is because they no longer desire the paper, their courtesy, at least, would demand that they inform us of the fact, as it is customary to continue sending a paper until some word to the contrary has been received. If, on the other hand, the reason be, as we think it is in most cases, not through want of good will but merely on account of thoughtlessness, the subscribers know how they can bring joy to the heart of the Business Manager. While upon this subject it may be well to request all who do not receive the STYLUS regularly to inform the Business Manager and he will be pleased to remedy the evil. It does not seem necessary to add that for the convenience of our patrons as well as for our own benefit, business communica...

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

DOMI. ngwaM IS strange, 'tis passing strange, how ||||||| many a surprise is prepared for the SlPlsil unsuspecting individual. Certainly nobody ever heard of the presentation of flowers at a foot-ball game, yet such was the fact last Thanksgiving. Do not misunderstand us, however; we do not mean the spectators brought bouquets with them and either presented them to the conquering hero or strewed his path as he wended his weary way to the coach. No, indeed, it was from those who could not pay or would not pay the necessary admission that unique mark of appreciation came, but the players were not the recipients. Every time a cheer, that signum arbitrarium of success, was heard, some member of the audience was presented with a soft flower known as a " snow-ball." That the recipients were surprised goes without saying, as they received no previous inkling of what was in store for them. The donors of these gratuitous favors spared neither the fair sex nor the dignified professor, but sho...

A LETTER FROM DR. GLENNON. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1897

A LETTER FROM DR. GLENNON. STOUGHTON, NOV. 18, 1897. Dear Mr. Editor: I have received your letter and I thank you for the extra copy of the STYLUS. The regular number reached me last Monday, and since then, many times each day, I have looked at that picture; on two or three occasions I have sat up at night looking at it; and often with sighs and regrets I will look at it in the days to come. I may not show it to my friends ; for I have let my family see it, and my children don't know me and my parents disown me. The exclamation mark after my name, and the extraordinary term classmate and college chum should have prepared you for Father Callanan's exaggerations in writing of me. He says I could dash off a reminiscence which would make us all forget the flight of time; my own opinion is that I could not write ten sentences fit for publication in the STYLUS. It is different with Father Callanan, and besides he has all the requisites called for in your editorial column; for I remember a...

Burke, '94, has been elected Secretary of the Young Men's Catholic Association of Boston College. Francis A. Brick, '96, is recovering from a very severe illness. He was threatened with appendicitis.

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

SOCIETY NOTES. |p§S|l|j NDER the direction of Professor Willis, and Stage Manager John F. MSSm Walsh, daily rehearsals are held in the College hall, for the coming production of Julius Caesar, at Christmas. Universal zest has been added to these rehearsals from the fact that the class of '99, in a body, has volunteered to play the Roman mob, an act quite unprecedented in college annals. The three leading characters, Brutus, Cas- sius, and Marc Antony will be personated by students who have already won enviable fame in the dramatic line. Charles Duffy especially distinguished himself last year, in the leading character role of " The Bells," which was rendered by the students of Holy Cross in Worcester. John Duffy and William Nugent have both met with considerable success in the past, the former in Fordham and Holy Cross, and the latter in Boston College. The cast in full: Julius Caesar FRANCIS BROWNE Cassius CHARLES F. DUFFY Brutus JOHN DUFFY Marc Antony .... WILLIAM NUGENT Octavius ...

CLASS NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1897

CLASS NOTES. Class of 'pd?. ||g|g|l|]N order that they may acquire a greater Wm\ facility in treating philosophical EgiM problems, the Seniors have formed a circle, whose object is to enable the members to discuss each thesis thoroughly, after it had been studied in class. The first meeting was held recently. Francis J. Dore defended the thesis on truth, and George A. MacDaughlin acted as objector. Charles A. O'Brien and Charles F. Duffy also took part in the disputation. Great interest is centred in the stereopticon lectures, of which a series is now being delivered by Professor Mulry. The subject of his recent discourses has been the effect of rain, wind and temperature on geological formations. We are much amused by the skill of one of our members as a sketch artist. We hope the man from Sterling will improve his talent. Class of 'pp. All who contemplate "riding the goat M should confer with our Dedhamite. His information, the fruit of recent experiences, will prove invaluable to...

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

ATHLETICS. HAT EVER be the fortunes of the Boston College eleven during the beSWK® foot-ball season, the Thanksgiving Day game is looked upon as the crowning event of the season. If reverses have come, this contest offers the last opportunity to balance accounts. If successes have been the rule, the whole college looks for a victory to crown the work ; for all other contests are regarded as preliminaries, rejoiced over only in so far as they lead on to final success. It is not so with us alone. Other colleges have at least one important annual game, the winning of which is considered more honorable than all other contests combined. This annual game is what places that particular branch of athletics on a firm basis. The general interest with which it is awaited, the earnest, anxious preparation of the players, and the grim determination with which the contest will be waged all serve to keep alive the spark of enthusiasm till the eventful day. Victory fans that spark into a very prair...

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

EXCHANGES. plliP AMES CLARENCE MANGAN ; his Selected Poems, with a Shidy by Louise raffia I Imogen Guiney. This is a handsome octavo volume of some four hundred pages, printed on rich white paper with uncut edges for the book-fancier. Miss Guiney has done a real service to the memory of Clarence Mangan by recovering some of his best, and neglecting some of his worst poems. Yet even from her collection some future editor may make a further selection, and continue the process of decimation. It must be admitted, in candor, that when the work of elimination is complete and all the chaff is blown away, the amount of sound grain remaining will be comparatively small. While we admit that there are flashes of genius and touches of nature everywhere throughout Mangan's writings, we are forced to avow that there is scarcely one of his poems which is not marred by some evidence of bad taste in ideas, in diction or in metre. The wonder is that Miss Guiuey ever took so much pains to edit an auth...

REMINISCENCES — (First Paper). [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1898

REMINISCENCES — (First Paper). (Rewritten and republished from the STYLUS of December 1596, by request. This December article of '96 will be continued in the February issue of the STYLUS. The Military Reminiscences will be resumed in the March issue). N June 28, 1877, the first graduating class was sent forth from the portals of dear old Boston College. Although Boston College was incorporated by the State of Massachusetts on May 25, 1863, and the institution was formally opened for students on September 5, 1864, the authorities of the college did not succeed in sending forth a graduating class until June, '77. The first graduates who took the degree of Bachelor of Arts from Alma Mater were as follows : John F. Broderick, now the worthy pastor of Foxboro, Mass. ; Patrick H. Callanan, now pastor of Newton Bower Falls, and the first graduate of Boston College appointed to a pastorate in any diocese ; Daniel J. Collins, who was for fifteen years a hard-working-curate in Salem, and who ...

JOHN KEATS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1898

JOHN KEATS. O impartial critic can fail to have a lie*® kind feeling for John Keats. Unless r I greatly err, he was a very clever, a very honest, and a very good natnred man. In spite of what Leigh Hunt may have written in judgment upon John Keats and his works, facts of history justify us in differing from the learned essayist. I am led to suppose that Hunt, like Pope, did not always write in good faith; rather he occasionally dressed up some idle conceit, or exercised his powers purely for the effect which fine language and choice expressions cannot fail to produce. Byway of digression, we might turn upon Pope himself two lines from his " Art of Criticism " : " Words are like leaves and where they most abound, Much fruit of sense beneath is rarely found." So, too, with Leigh Hunt's criticism of Keats : a plentiful covering and no frame to support it. It is true that we can clearly discern, with many merits, some faults in Keats' writings. Mr. Gifford said so in the Quarterly, and ...

MARY IMMACULATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1898

MARY IMMACULATE. {7hou art all fair, O my love, and there is no stain in thee. — Canticle of Canticles, iv., 7.) Pray who is she that cometh, as a queen, Up from the desert, flowing with delight, And clad as in the starry robe of night ? Fair as the moon, majestic yet serene, With dove-like eyes, a goddess in her mien; Though ruddy as the dawn, yet fair and white As lilies of the vale or radiant sprite: In short her like on earth has not been seen. She is the maid above all others blest, Comely without yet fairer still within : The godlike image mirrored in her breast Was never tarnished by the breath of sin. Her simple wish, her one assenting nod Brought God to man and man again to God, Thomas F. McGtiire, 1900.

A LAMP POSTS SOLILOQUY. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1898

A LAMP POSTS SOLILOQUY. |j||pi|]Eß.E stand I, dutiful and modest, on B||||i one of the busiest corners in the whole town of Plyinpton. I am a tall, thin fellow with a glass head, which encloses a large brazen lamp. Rather an empty cranium you will think : but hear me first and criticise afterwards. I have already premised my extreme modesty ; but, at the urgent request of my friends, I am constrained to admit that, not excepting even the town pump, mine is by far the most important existence in the community. By most important I mean not necessarily the most conspicuous but rather the most useful. In the first place, despite all his demagogic harangues and apparent multiplicity of duties, the town pump can exercise but one function and that is to give water. In contrast to that my duties are distinct and separate. For instance, I save time and energy for hundreds of people every day by receiving their letters and other mail into the ample red iron box that is bound to my waist. This...

A CHRISTMAS FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1898

A CHRISTMAS FANCY. The snow is falling on hedge and tree, As the twilight steals with shadowy gleam Over the wold from the distant hills, — And I sit at my window, and think and dream. #####♦ 'Tis Christmas eve, at the century's close, Two thousand years since that night of grace, When a creature became the Mother of God, And a manger was made His resting place. It was just this time when the day is hushed Adown the road towards Bethlehem, St. Joseph led his virgin spouse, Seeking an inn to harbor them. The birds of the air have their sheltered nests, And every beast of the field its bed ; The spotless Son of Man alone Has not whereon to lay His head. Alas for men ! there is no place To hold this treasure of infinite worth, But a lonely stable which midnight makes The fairest spot on all the earth. **##*# The snow has ceased and I seem to see Myriad bright angels through the air Winging their way to an humble stall, Yet another Heaven for God is there. And dreaming still, I seem to ...

THE SWEET HISTORY OF GENUINE SPRING WATER. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1898

THE SWEET HISTORY OF GENUINE SPRING WATER. (. A Class Exercise in Imitation.) Ijgfig OST indulgent reader! did you ever fllilfe taste a glass of pure spring water such as Nature offers to the thirsty wanderer at her woodland fountains ? Have you ever experienced the refreshing coolness which follows such a draught? Unfortunately you have not; for, very likely, you are a narrow-minded, city-bred reader to whom the word spring water is suggestive only of a dusty-looking liquid sold by dustylooking individuals from big wicker-covered bottles on the busy streets of your native town, and tasting of various substances decidedly unpleasant to the palate. Or, perhaps, with a prejudice born of this dusty appearance, you have avoided such beverages entirely and quenched your thirst by means of common, everyday city water. Very likely you are completely unacquainted with the true history of real spring water ; how it bubbles up from the depths of the earth in some quiet, woody nook; how it flo...

EDITORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1898

EDITORIAL. present issue finds us well advanced ||lll| into January, yet it may not be too late to offer our subscribers and friends our heartiest wishes for a happy and successful year. In looking over the past we find mistakes as a matter of course; but we are not discouraged and we are resolved to turn defeat into victory and to learn by experience. In one respect, at least, the STYLUS is improving, thanks to its many friends, both within and without the college. At present there is but a small proportion of the students who do not subscribe for their college paper. Last year the case was different : not half the number took the STYLUS at all, and of these about one-third never paid. They diverted to other objects the money which was given them by their parents for the support of their college journal. That was selfishness, pure and simple. At the recent Harvard-Yale debate, in which the blue floated in triumph, the presiding officer, in the course of his introductory remarks, st...

DOMI. this issue we take up for the first time an editorial pen, and don the ißEasfaa mantle of our able and accomplished predecessor. To him who has been honored by a well-deserved promotion, we tender our heartiest congratulations ; wishing him at the same time all possible success in the new sphere of his literary labors. It will be our constant aim not only to maintain the high standard of excellence which characterized the work of our predecessor, but even to surpass that standard, if it be possible for our poor efforts. As soon as word was brought to us that we were elected to the Staff, a certain ambitious and enterprising man volunteered to write a series of '' Remembrances," if we would endeavor to have them published in these columns. As we somewhat inexperienced in journalism we could not make any promises. Fearful lest we should prove to be the cause of crushing honest ambition, we referred our friend to the Editor-in-Chief, who will no doubt give him some sound and whol...

I did tell one of your fathers a year and a half ago to have the STYLUS sent me regularly ; but the sample number which I have just received is the first to reach me since the resurrection of the publication.
