IN MEMORIAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1884
IN MEMORIAM. After brief but gallant service done 011 the great battlefield of life, Captain Matthew J. Callahan entered into his everlasting peace 011 Monday, the fifteenth of September. Although with us but one short hour each week, the deceased inspired us all with a respect the grave cannot obliterate. An exterior determined, severe, gave one at first sight a thrill of fear and awe ; but beneath that exterior there beat as kind and warm a heart as ever man possessed. W ith him, the first thing always was duty; and for this reason, he allowed no display of natural feeling to interfere with the performance of that duty; hence his apparent severity. His business was to teach us to be soldiers with a stock of fine morale and he was here to impart to us that lesson he had so well learned —obedience. How well he succeeded is attested by the condition of the Battalion at the Prize drill last year. We who knew him more intimately, can bear testimony to his kind heart and to the kindly w...
ALUMNI AND PERSONALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1884
ALUMNI AND PERSONALS. 1 he piesent scholastic year has opened with every prospect of a bright and happy course. Perhaps at 110 other time in her history has our Alma Mater gathered so many precious souls beneath her kind, refining influence, and this unparalleled increase in numbers, we feel confident is owing to the noble history of the past to which she can always point with motherly pride and gratitude. It is a beautiful thing to note that the tendency of the present day is becoming more and more pronounced in favor of a sound moral and religious training. With Catholic parents, especially, this feeling has already grown into a conviction, and Boston College is to be congratulated that although situated in the centre of the most belauded public school system of the country, and almost under the shadow of the classic halls of Harvard, she receives such a large percentage of Catholic young men, destined to become successful in every walk of life. This cannot but be a source of plea...
COMING RED-LETTER DAYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1884
COMING RED-LETTER DAYS. On Friday evening, the 21st of November, the St. Cecilia Society will honor the Patroness of Music with observances as pleasant as any set down in its history. The features will be as customary on this occasion, a charming medley of musical and literary morceaux. Besides, the newly appointed director, Mr. M. J. Conway, S. J., will give the members a specimen of the hearty manner in which he can provide for their social entertainment. A wider circle than that of the Students, will be pleased to learn that the Cecilians have transferred their Solemn High Mass from their Saint's-day to the Bth of December, when thev will furnish the singing at the 10.30 o'clock Mass at the Immaculate Conception Church. They will render the music to which they have of late devoted frequent and faithful rehearsals. As a pledge of the excellent singing which will be heard on this occasion, it is only necessary to mention the efficiency of the choir which ordinarily draws many a dev...

Boston College Stylus. PUBLISHED 81-MONTHLY. TERMS OF SUBSCRIPTION : Fifty cents in advance, post-paid. Single copies, ten cents. ADVERTISING RATES: Business cards,(one inch and a half.) $1.25 foi each insertion, or $6.00 per year, including a copy of the STYLUS during that time. Additional space furnished at reasonable rates. The STYLUS is published by the students of Boston College as an aid to their literary improvement. As the paper is, for the most part, devoted to matters which may not prove interesting to the general reader, it must look for its support, chiefly to the students and graduates and their friends. These, we trust, will need no exhortation to extend to us their patronage. Address, BOSTON COLLEGE STYLUS, 761 Harrison Avenue, Boston, Mass.

EDITORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1884
EDITORIAL. In the commencement of its third year, the STYLUS again extends greetings to its friends. From causes which were unavoidable, the present issue has been delayed somewhat beyond the usual time of publication ; but our greetings are no less sincere, and our words of welcome for friends, old and new, no less hearty because tardily expressed. So far, tbe STYLUS has met with favorable success in regard to both its literary and financial status. In each we seem to have had the advantage over several of our sister Journals, who, to judge from their editorials, are opposed by different obstacles, chief among them being a perfect indifference on the part of many to subscribe. And if, perchance, they succeed at times in alluring some of the unwary into giving a reluctant assent, later on, when these poor, deluded individuals awake to the full realization of what they have done, they quickly recall their order by the Caesarian despatch, — "STOP MY PAPER." The reason why these critic...
ART NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1884
ART NOTES. Under the caption of Art Notes, we might insert two paragraphs of general interest to our friends. The beautiful painting of the Virgin Mother, her Divine Child and St. John the Baptist, which was hung in the college parlor and which was fast hurrying into blisters and cracks, has been placed in the hands of Mr. Fletcher Howard for renovation. The surmise made by many that it is a genuine Andrea del Sarto, (1487-1531), is strongly entertained by this artist, who discerns in it several characteristics of the Florentine's panel-pictures. We are glad to think that when properly restored, it will command the admiration of our visitors in whom it must have caused a real regret to see an old master going into rapid decay. When the college hall was thrown open for the first time this season to the Young Men's Catholic Association, the public gaze was fixed and curiosity excited by the picture recently placed in the lobby and just over the hall doors. It represents an event in th...
THE "STYLUS" PRIZE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1884
THE "STYLUS" PRIZE. The College organ, much-envied monopoly though it be, is. not a bloated concern ; it hoards its half dollars, and also its cents, with a greed worthy of the most emaciated husbandry. But at the same time, it knows how to be lavishly, nay recklessly liberal, when the cause of letters is to be promoted. Hence, in order to encourage the art of composition among the students, and to do homage to the memory of a true Christian genius in literature, it offers a premium of ten dollars for the best paper on Dr. Samuel Johnson. The subject, admirable for treatment in prose and not altogether refractory to verse, is suggested by the centenary of the '"Great Moralist's" death which occurred on the 13th of December, 1784- particulars of the competition were stated on the College bulletinhnnrrl.
A BRACE OF TRANSLATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1884
A BRACE OF TRANSLATIONS. I. (From the German of SALIS.) The grave is dark and cold and lone; Grim, ghastly horrors 'round it fall. It stretches like a sombre pall Betwixt us and the land unknown. The nightingale's sweet, mellow lay May ne'er its frigid bosom cheer; And friendship's roses wither here, Their leaves on mossy knolls decay. And yet, —tho' man may elsewhere roam, Here, here alone is the longed-for rest. Through Death's dark portals, God's behest Bids welcome to the brighter home. And here at last, poor Heart, thy life From hurtling storms shall find release; Through sorrow shalt thou reach the peace, Where cares are o'er, and hushed is strife. II. (From the French of MARIE.) When we and Time are gay and young, As swiftly pass the days As boiling torrents, headlong flung Down mountains' rock}' ways. For Time a living fountain is, Whose source cannot be dried. Yet come the heat, and then, I wis, Is stemmed the torrent's tide. Then like a miser, man is seen Bent o'er his tar...
DOMI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1884
DOMI. The periodic Le roi est mort! I ive le roi ! was heard in the "course of this summer. On the 31st of July, the Rev. Edward V. Boursaud, S. J., was installed as the successor of the retiring President, the Rev. Jeremiah O'Connor, S. J. The seeing of a familiar face on the platform and the hearing of a well-remembered voice in the opening speech of the year, obviated even a momentary feeling that a stranger had taken hold of the reins of government. The appearance of the new President and of the old Prefect of schools, Fr. Brand, now Vice-President, was hailed with hearty applause on the first Monday of .September, all too precocious as this same Monday was this year. Bostonians who visit the '-Empire City" will be invited for their Sunday treat to hear Fr. O'Connor, the distinguished preacher, and former Rector of Boston College, at the "Sixteenth St. Church." St. Francis Xavier's. The Intercollegiate Prize for Christian Doctrine has stirred up genuine enthusiasm. There is a ru...

THE BATTALION. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1884
THE BATTALION. Drill this year is optional, and as a result the present Battalion does not equal in point ot numbers that ot last year. However, in our opinion, it surpasses it in ihe earnestness displayed, in the discipline exacted, and in the attendance at weekly drills. ROSTER. Co. A, CAPT. A. J. JUDGE. IST. LIEUT. P. H.

THE SODALITY JUBILEE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 November 1884
THE SODALITY JUBILEE. It was 011 the fifth of December, 1584, that Pope Gregory XIII., signed the Brief. Omnipotent is Dei , which gave a canonical foundation to the Sodality of the Blessed AYrgin Mary already in existence since the year 1563, among the students of the Jesuit Colleges in the old world. These were the compliments of the Sovereign Pontiff on the Sodality's coming of age. Now that three centuries have passed, His present Holiness, Pope Leo XIII. renews the seal of former approbations and adds to the grant of privileges and indulgences, by proclaiming a Tercentenary Jubilee in his Brief Frugiferas inter Sodalitatcs , under date of May 27, 1SS4. The conditions of this Jubilee, which extends over one year, will be dnlv announced to the members of the Sodality. In view of this sanction and encouragement held out by the Head of the Church, the inner circle of the clients of Mary will doubtless hallow the period in an extraordinary manner. Wheresoever a scion of the Sodality...
