ATHLETICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1898
ATHLETICS. meet in Mechanics' Building last year was a great success, and was spoken of as such throughout the entire country. This year we jj ave better athletic material at hand than ever before, and there is no reason why our second athletic carnival should not be crowned with many Boston College victories. Last year the entire interest was centered in the success of the meet. This year we go a step further, and besides conducting a successful meeting we hope to produce, as an adjunct, a successful athletic team, showing that our progress has not been one-sided. The material is at hand, and with such men as Holland, Kane, Quinn, Kiley and McDonald to select from, all capable of doing better than 53 seconds for the quarter-mile, there is every reason to predict that the Boston College indoor relay record will be broken, and that the team which defeats our quartette of runners will have to cover the distance of 1560 yards in better time than 3 min. 19 sec. The men are all in active...
SOCIETY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1898
SOCIETY NOTES. c^an S e h as been made in the Fulton |llgrp Debating Society this year as reIlli&amp;llJ gards the preliminary contests for the final prize debate. Heretofore these contests have been intermingled with the regular debates of the year. This year, however, the preliminary debates will fall on the first four consecutive regular meetings in February. The first one, to be delivered in February, reads, " Resolved, that Hawaii should be speedily annexed to the United States." The affirmative will be defended by George MacLaughlin and Bartholomew Coyne, the negative by Benjamin Teeling and John Duffy. On February n, William Murphy and William Nugent on the affirmative, Timothy Ahern and Joseph Powers 011 the negative will contest the question reading, " Resolved, that Napoleon's second exile from France was unjust." The question, "Resolved, that Cabinet Officers should have seats and the right to speak in Congress," on February 18, will have as defenders on the affir...
CLASS NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1898
CLASS NOTES. Class of '9B. ONTRARY to a long-standing custorn at the college, the Senior class BSSMI decided not to hold the annual banquet at Christmas time, but to inaugurate a class day at the end of the year in its place. The perfecting of the plans is rapidly progressing, and the officers of the day will be elected at a meeting to be held in the near future. Jeremiah O'Brien of Salem, who had won many friends by his quiet, unassuming manner, has withdrawn from the class to devote himself entirely to the business in which he was formerly engaged. His absence is deeply regretted by his class-fellows. Increased interest is manifested in the meetings of the philosophical circle, which are held every Thursday. A Latin oration, remarkable for purity of style, was recently delivered by Bartholomew Coyne on the u Value of the Internal Senses." The vigor of his delivery brought forth prolonged applause. The mid-year examination in geology has just been held, and while it is yet too earl...
THE RAINBOW OF THE HEART. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1898
THE RAINBOW OF THE HEART. When the clouds bedim the noonday, And in darkness shroud the sky, Then a furtive ray of sunshine Forms a rainbow bright on high. So when sorrow gathers o'er us, And its gloom bids joy depart, Some bright hope that's sent to cheer us, Forms the rainbow of the heart. John E. Swift.
EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 January 1898
EXCHANGES. pj|gSfIRURING the past month the former Jl||aj Exchange Editor was elected to the Epjallll position of Editor-in-Chief, and now, just before the present issue goes to press, I find myself installed in his corner of the "sanctum." It is with great reluctance and solicitude I draw his chair closer to the table and take up his pen, for the role I must essay henceforth is that of a critic. I must not only praise where applause is deserved, but ever and anon I must condemn whatever seems in bad taste. Certainly mine is not a pleasant or an enviable task, yet so the Fates have decreed. But one joy, however, comes to lighten my literary labors, namely, the fact that I am able to extend to all our acquaintances the best wishes of the season. In the name of the STYLUS, then, let me hope that all the exchanges have spent a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Looking up into our face as we write this article is the Notre Dame Scholastic. Beautiful and artistic, indeed, not to say ...

REMINISCENCES — (First Paper). (Continued). (Rewritten and republished from the STYLUS of Decembe&gt;, 1896, by request. The Military Reminiscences will be resumed in our next issue). HE earliest recollections I have of the E§||i|?j old boys of college days are associated with dramatics. I remember how well I enjoyed " Handy Andy," the first play I attended, and, indeed, the first play put on the boards after my entrance into college. I fortunately saved the programme of this Xmas show, and here it lies before me. As this programme was not published in the College Catalogue, I have here, perhaps, the only copy in existence. I will transcribe it word for word : "A MERRY CHRISTMAS." BOSTON COLLEGE DRAMATIC CLUB. REHEARSAL OF HANDY ANDY. TUESDAY EVENING, DECEMBER 27, 1870. CAST. HANDY ANDY . . EDWARD MCLAUGHLIN.

THE MOANING OF THE TREES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1898
THE MOANING OF THE TREES. With dreary sound, the winter wind Shrills through the naked trees; Whose heavy limbs, like monster hands, Move slowly in the breeze. Beneath, the leaves in mould'ring heaps Are sleeping in their grave; Above them moan the branches cold And sorrowfully wave. The trees bewail the sunny days, That long ago have fled; They grieve for all the varied flowers Which now, alas ! are dead. They moan for absent birds, whose nests Are tenanted no more ; They miss the merry notes of spring, The summer days of yore. The wind that shakes their branches bare Is chill, and tells of snow; It speaks of coming sleet and hail It bears a tale of woe. The creaking limbs of every tree, Like prophets dark and dread, Proclaim that winter now is come, For Nature's works are dead. fames /. McMorrow, Middle Grammar B.
IS IT TRUE? [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1898
IS IT TRUE? STUDENT of scholastic philosophy who devotes his energies to the study of the nature, the construction and the force of the syllogism, and who unconsciously imbibes from his researches a deep reverence for deductive reasoning, is startled when he reads the assertion of Francis Bacon that '' the syllogism cannot come down to the delicacy of nature, and is useful as an organon of disputation rather than of science." His wonder is not lessened when he turns the pages of John Stuart Mill and finds the following : "All inference, consequently all proof, and all discovery of truth not self-evident, consists of induction and the interpretations of induction." We naturally ask ourselves after reading this, is it true that inductive reasoning is so mighty a force in the acquisition and development of thought ? This is the problem agitated in the present article. To answer it properly we must first of all determine what is meant by and what are the various kinds of induction ? Ind...
IN THE WOODLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1898
IN THE WOODLAND. Deep stillness lingereth in the woodland bare When Winter's hand has touched the earth with frost; And in the silent paths, so seldom crossed By aught but flickering shadows, or the glow That gently dances on the sunlit snow, Calm Peace, unchallenged, fills the dusky air. When Summer comes the woodland holds its hush Unbroken still: the whispering of the breeze, Soft music making 'mid the nodding trees, Breeds tranquil sentiment; and when the night Begins to frown, calm feelings of delight Are wakened by the piping of the thrush. Frank J. Dore,
STUDYING NATURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1898
STUDYING NATURE. WHT was during the summer vacation, on a bright, balmy day which fills one Icsillll with the desire to stroll in the country and gaze at the beauties of nature, that I sauntered through a neighboring field and proceeded to a wood, where trees green with foliage lifted their heads majestically to the sky. I had just been admitted to the class of poetry in college, and it was natural for a member of such a dignified body to grow enthusiastic over the scene that lay before me. So charmed was I that I almost immediately received inspiration and began to compose a poem in praise of the scene, perhaps not with a strict regard to metre, but one such as might u amaze the unlearned and make the learned smile." This piece I was declaiming loudly, picturing trees and flowers in endless variety, and gazing about to see what new features I might introduce into my production, when my poetic tastes received a rude shock from a spectacle that lay almost at my feet. I stopped in the...
NOTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1898

Tickets may be had in advance by applying to Mr. Richard S. Teeling, treasurer of the athletic committee.
THE DELIVERANCE OF THE ISRAELITES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1898
THE DELIVERANCE OF THE ISRAELITES. THE MISSION OF MOSES. Now on the side of a mountain the blessed, the God-fearing Moses Grazed and pastured the sheep of Jethro, the sire of Sephora. Into the desert he went and there on the mountain of Horeb Saw he a bush in flames, and the bush unconsumed by the burning. Forward he hasted with speed exclaiming in words of amazement: Straight will I go, yea and see, I will find out the why and the wherefore. Then from the midst of the flame and the bush unconsumed by the burning, Thundered the voice of the Lord, and thus did He speak unto Moses : Come not hither, O Moses, thou prophet and stay of my people ! Put off the shoes from thy feet, for the place where thou standest is holy. I am the God of thy fathers, of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Moses dared not to look, but in dread hid his face from Jehovah. Well have I seen and have heard the sorrow and cry of my people. Now am I come to lead them out of the place of their bondage, Into the promised la...
A SUGGESTION TO THE MODERN REFORMER. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1898
A SUGGESTION TO THE MODERN REFORMER. FpT||g S the nineteenth century draws rapidly to a close, modern civilization redoubles its pace, and, like a racer nearing the end of his course, puts forth its utmost strength in an effort to outdo all previous performances and to make up for past delays. On every side the germs of reform are springing into a rapid and vigorous growth. New and infallible systems of educacation are constantly brought to light ; wonderful flying machines are daily observed floating among the clouds; the long sought for North Pole, according to the newspapers, is hourly discovered by adventuresome navigators and balloouists ; while nations, states and cities, presidents, governors and mayors, legislators, school commissioners and policemen are revolutionized with a rapidity that is wonderful to contemplate. But, for all this, modern civilization has made one grevious mistake. It has civilized the Indian, elevated the stage, and purified the press, but it has almos...
THE RYTHM OF A RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1898
THE RYTHM OF A RIVER. Oh! the flow of a river to me is a song, As it tumbles and rumbles and sparkles along ; As it hurries and scurries and ripples in glee, Nor stops it to rest on its way to the sea. And its laugh is as merry as merry can be, If its waters run smoothly along to the sea; But it rumbles and tumbles and hisses with wrath, If its ripples are broken by rocks in its path. Thus the flow of a stream is a symbol of life, And its tumbling and rumbling of tumult and strife ; And the sea is the goal wither all men must tend, And the rocks are the cares to which all of us bend. Then roll, river, roll, whate'er thy mood be, Whether rumbling in anger or sparkling in glee; The quicker the journey the better for thee, For thou wilt be clasped to the breast of the sea. Frederic /. Allchin, 1900.

EDITORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1898
EDITORIAL. K\V tilings are more distasteful to the Ppjjl public, who keenly enjoy honestj manly and sportsman-like athletics, than to see in the daily papers reports of continued bickering and diplomacy in regard to an approaching test of skill and en- durance. To demand an unjust requirement is a blot on the athletic history of any college. It indicates a selfish desire to grasp the laurel of victory, not through honorable contest, but by weakening the forces of their opponents. Victory itself can never compensate for the little meannesses which contributed to obtain it. This spirit of making unreasonable demands has been recently exemplified in the inter-col-legiate world. We sincerely hope that Boston College will never be characterized except by fairness and courtesy, both on the field and in all the preliminary arrangements. Many sentiments are daily expressed on the future of the young man in politics, his opportunities and his difficulties. His enthusiasm and his indefatigabl...
DOMI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1898
DOMI. examination in Physiological Psy|||ip chology was held 011 January 21. The knowledge of the class concerning the encephalon was well tested, and, we are inclined to think, over-tested in some cases, judging from facial expressions. No doubt the papers will reveal many improvements upon contemporary anatomical literature. ON January 21, before the entire faculty and student body, the seniors tendered Father Rector an informal reception in the college theatre, in honor of his feast day. The songs, composed by members of the senior class, and sung to popular airs, were well received, particularly the one entitled " Topical Hits." At the close of the exercises, Father Rector made a pleasing reply and concluded by urging the student body to continue the high standard of class work revealed by the recent examinations. For the benefit of our readers we append the programme: Latin Address, F. J. Carney; "Carmen Laetitiae," Solo and Chorus; Poem, B. B. Coyne; " Minor Chords," Solo and ...
