SOCIETY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1898
SOCIETY NOTES. HE long-expected debate between the Eorum of Harvard University and the Fulton Debating Society of Boston College took place on March 24. Although the subject in itself was dry and somewhat abstruse, still the spirited tilting of the debaters kept the audience interested until the very close. Boston College selected the subject, and Harvard chose the affirmative. The question discussed was : " Resolved, That the Adoption of an Inheritance Tax is advisable.' The debaters from Harvard were Thornton S. Alexander, '99, Ernest E. Sargent, 1900, and Edgar Boody, '99. The Boston College representatives were John B. Doyle, '99, Francis J. Carney, '9B, and William D. Nugent, '99. The Hon. Thomas J. Gargan presided. After a few opening remarks by the chairman, Mr. Thornton S. Alexander, '99, of the Forum, opened the debate for the affirmative. He declared that no ideal system of taxation could be framed, but that the inheritance tax which he proposed, would remedy most of the e...
ST. THOMAS’ RIVAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1898
ST. THOMAS’ RIVAL. |jgj|S&amp;|N the thirteenth century scholastic philosophy was at the zenith of its glory. Men, uniting in themselves the character of saint and sage, had succeeded, by their teachings, in making it the accepted philosophy of schools and scholars. With few exceptions, these men came forth from the monasteries of the two great mendicant orders founded early in the century. St. Thomas Aquinas, the great philosopher of the Dominican order, had completed his grand work on Philosophy and Theology, which included in its scope the whole of the scholastic teaching. His system had been received with favor by the greatest scholars of the time, and was the approved teaching of the great universities. But towards the end of the century, the rivalry which naturally existed between the Dominicans and the other mendicant order, the Franciscans, was the occasion of opposition to the system of philosophy and theology promulgated by St. Thomas. This movement was the beginni...
HYMN TO THE SACRED HEART. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1898
HYMN TO THE SACRED HEART. 0 Jesus, Jesus, dearest Lord ! Forgive me if I say For very love Thy sacred name A thousand times a day. 1 love Thee so I know not how My transports to control; Thy love is like a burning fire Within my very soul. O light in darkness, joy in grief, O heaven begun on earth ! Jesus, my love, my treasure, who Can tell what Thou art worth ? O Jesus, Jesus, sweetest Lord, What art Thou not to me ? Each hour brings joys before unknown, Each day new liberty.
TRANSLATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1898
TRANSLATION. O Jesu, veniam mihi da si propter amorem Saepe tuum nomen dixero quoque die. Diligo te multum, me non compescere possum : Cor tanquam flamma flagrat amore tui. O lux in tenebris, O in maerore voluptas, Quam mihi sis carus dicere nemo potest. 0 dulcis Jesu! quae non mihi dona dedisti! Unusquisque dies fert mihi dona nova. Edward A. Costello, 1900.
SPRING. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1898
SPRING. ( Translation from Ovid.) Why comes the year when Winter is the king ? 'Twere better wait until the reign of Spring. Then Time with flowery diadem is crowned, And tender sprouts on pregnant boughs are found. The trees are clad in every verdant grace, The budding seed betrays its hiding place. The birds with songs the tepid air regale, And browsing kine are scattered o'er the vale. The sun in kindly warmth begins to burn. And erring swallows home again return. Once more the ploughman's voice the oxen hear O what a time to usher in the year ! Thomas J. Burke, Middle Grammar B.
REMINISCENCES. — Military. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1898
REMINISCENCES. — Military. (Begun in December number, 1896, and continued without interruption up to date). military reminiscences of twenty kIIIM odd years ago would not be complete I without some reference to the part the Foster Cadets took in the St. Patrick's Day Parade of 1875. The success of the Foster Cadets in the line of military endeavor encouraged the Catholic youth of the diocese to start cadet companies in many of the parishes. South Boston with the Johnson Cadets, East Boston with the Noddle Island Cadets, and Charlestown with the Supple Cadets took the lead in this military movement, and all had splendid and well-drilled organizations. Many other parishes followed the example of these, and in 1875 there were over a thousand well drilled lads in the different organized cadet companies. John Boyle () Reilly, then Editor of the Pilot , expressed a strong desire, in an editorial in the Pilot, to bring together representatives of all the Catholic cadet companies, and show ...
SMALL KINDNESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1898
SMALL KINDNESS. Beside a woodland lake a child at play A pebble flung into the placid nieer : And seeing eddies myriad appear, That rippled to the marge in circling way, Great was his glee. As if enchanted lay 1 hat listless lake, and when one passing near, With tiny missile stirred its bosom clear, — Lo ! what wonders wrought as if by magic sway. So simple deeds iust done we little mind, How true their worth, how good the fruit they bring, How soon they ripen to the fairest prime : Like offerings to the sea of humankind Are they that start the soul's swift eddying, To bear increased return in aftertime. John B. Doyle , 'pp.
A SONG OF THE IRON LIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1898
A SONG OF THE IRON LIONS. Sing me no song of the golden guitar, Sing me no lorn lover's story ; But sing of the gun as it flames in the sun And peals out a pman of glory. Sing me a song, and O let it be strong, Of the musketry's clatter and rattle ; Of the terrible flash and the thunderous crash, And the wind and the whirlwind of battle. Sing of the gleaming of steel in the sun, And the flaming and flapping of banners; Of the battle-smoke black and the clangor and crack, And the battle-field's barbarous manners. Sing me a song of the neighing of steeds, And the dashing and rushing through thunder ; Of the massing of hordes and the flashing of swords, And the serried ranks riven in sunder. Of the war-trumpet sing, with its jubilant ring, And the mortar's demoniac screaming ; And the trample and rush, and the flash and the flush Of our flag in the battle-front streaming. For our seamen are slain, and the battle-ship Maine Is sunk in the waves of Havana, And we'll wash out the stain in...
A MODERN ICONOCLAST. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1898
A MODERN ICONOCLAST. (Suggested by Duveneckis masterpiece at the Boston Art Museum). igggfiUIEBERT Jaquot, now about fifty-five, had studied in the great art schools of Italy, and some fifteen years ago had come to America to earn fame and fortune. True it was that when he reached Columbia's shore, he had little besides his clothes and a few francs ; but industry and frugality succeeded, and in a decade and a half he had acquired a comfortable fortune. That was not enough, however. Fame, " that last infirmity of noble minds," was what he now sought. He had already executed some notable pieces of statuary his Apollo Belvidere and Discus Thrower were especially admired — and he had thereby secured much favorable commendation; but these amounted to nothing in his mind, since they were only imitations of the old masters, and subjects which every art student had attempted. What he hoped to produce was something original, something that would startle the world, and place the name of Guilb...
THE VIOLET. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1898
THE VIOLET. The violet beside the brook Is hidden in its cool retreat, Secure within its shady nook, The violet beside the brook Has e'er a sweet and pleasant look ; Far from the scorching noonday heat The violet beside the brook Is hidden in its cool retreat. William J. Duffy, 1900.
BALLADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1898
BALLADE. One quiet eve in autumn drear At the closing of a dismal day, When the moaning wind the leaflets sere Had scattered in my narrow way, When the naked boughs did sadly sway To and fro, there came to me, Borne on the evening air at play, The sound of taps across the sea. That sound so soft and sweet and clear, Brought with it peace across the bay For all the friends to my heart dear, Who were in foreign lands away. Methought it softly seemed to say Thy distant loved ones think of thee, And in their loneliness they pray, At the sound of taps across the sea. The thought now changed for one of fear. The sea was life all blithe and gay; The distant shore seemed growing near. And softly lit with mellow ray Of heavenly light that bid me stay. And yet I vainly tried to flee From Death, that called without delay In the sound of taps across the sea. Ah! that was but a hint of Death, A forestaste of my doom to be. May angels guard breath At the sound of taps across the sea. Walter H. Gi...
THE STANDARD OF MORALITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1898
THE STANDARD OF MORALITY. foundation of every government is the morality of the people. If there is a desire to live according to the teachings of natural and constituted law, an honest endeavor to walk in the paths of justice, the nation is secure : but should the people turn in pride or derision from saving restraint, mock law and disregard authority, dissolution and decay stalk into that ill-fated land and make it their dwelling place. The vast importance of the subject demands careful scrutiny. We feel an instinctive longing to know the precise meaning of morality and all the circumstances which modify it. Our researches into philosophic lore teach us that morality is the property which determines whether an act is good or evil. It does not mean social purity or personal integrity, as it is generally understood, but it reverts to the fundamental principle of law and justice, the question of right or wrong. In ethical parlance, then, the moral man is he whose actions are lawful, ...
