THE STAGE OF THE FUTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1885
THE STAGE OF THE FUTURE. The stage, its effects and influences have been a most prolific source of speculation, research and erudition. From the days when Thespis first mounted actors on a table, and Aeschylus trod the boards in the stately buskin, down to our own time, plays and players have ever claimed the applause or censure of the many and the consideration, at least, of the thoughtful. At all times the stage has exerted an influence, well recognized, on the manners, tastes, and morals of the people. Let us follow for a moment the direction of this influence. Much has been written—more has been said, yet little has been clone to encourage the good tendencies, and restrict the evil ones of the stage. This is not altogether strange in the time and country in which we live, since we well know that any attempt to restrain the liberty of the stage would be regarded as an encroachment on the religious rights of some whose only temple is the theatre, and whose gods are actors. But whi...
CIRCLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1885
CIRCLES. Though not over fond of mathematics, I have a strange passion tor circles. My joy of very young sports was to print on the delightful, plastic mud my pet figure. Even now, sober young man as I am, in my idle, dreamy hours, I often cover great sheets of paper with circles. Whence this strange fascination, I cannot tell, but as a consequence of my inordinate love, I am vehemently moved to anger when anyone speaks to me of Squaring the Circle. What! Ruin the lovliest of nature's lines, the highest emblem in the cipher of the world! Ruthless vandal! What earthly good would it do you, my friend, if you did succeed in your vile design? A square circle, you blockhead ! O rough heart, out of tune with the true and beautiful; '•I think such hearts yet never came to good." But, reader, I do not intend to give you a paper on squaring the circle ; no, I mean to tell you how I first came to read Emerson. A volume of his essays fell into my hands, but I never once thought of reading them...
QUEEN OF MAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1885
QUEEN OF MAY. There was many a beauteous form, Mother, With blooming health full bright; And virgin fair with rippling hair Like streams of golden light: But none so fair as thou, Mother, In all the world, they say, For thou art Queen of the May, Mother. Thou art Queen of the May. There's not a flower that blooms, Mother. As pure and fair as thou: And every hand in every land Pays homage to thee now. And on thy shrine we'll place, Mother, Sweet buds and garlands gay; For thou art Queen of the May, Mother, Thou art Queen of the May. And this is the fairest month, Mother, The fairest month of all; On every side, both far and wide, Thy children to thee call: With loving hearts and pure, Mother. They kneel to thee and pray: For thou art Queen of the May, Mother, Thou art Queen of the May. Oh ! cleanse our hearts from sin, Mother. From sin and sorrow free, And pure as snow make us below: This gift we beg of thee. Direct our feet aright. Mother, L'pon the heavenward way, For thou art Quee...
A RETROSPECT. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1885
A RETROSPECT. Each year sees some band of eager students reach in safety those sublime heights on which the Philosophers dwell, transfigured, it would seem, in the eyes of their less fortunate brethren. who are still wearily struggling up the slopes. Those who have occupied the mount for the last ten months are about to leave it, and another band is setting foot upon its crest. Our days with the classics, to speak plainly, are ended, —in some cases, perhaps, forever. We are laving aside that which so long has been the great instrument of our education ; we are turning from the source whence, the teachings of centuries would have us believe, have been drawn the most potent influences for enlightening the mind and elevating the heart. It is not our intention to deny the classics the merit ascribed to them so long. We willingly grant it; but yet we woidd like to look back, to recall, without any feigned appreciation, the impressions they made upon us. —if, indeed, they made anv at at a...

ADVERTISING RATES: Business cards,(one inch and a half,) $1.25 foi each insertion, or $7.00 per year, including a copy of the STYLUS during that time. Additional space furnished at reasonable rales.

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.

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1885
Another Sisyphus, must the student ever roll the mighty rock up the mount of knowledge? Will the task never he done? Such thoughts often present themselves to the student's mind as the work of the class-room drags tediously on. Yet like all things mundane, the academic year is drawing nigh its end, when the dial-hand that so slowly marks the long procession of class-davs will calmly rest at zero, and the college boy in the freedom of exultant joy crys out: "All! 'tis a Providence shapes our end, rough hewn though it be. " Alack, the college curriculum seems an endless race to the student driving post-haste through the winding maze of classic lore, catching the dust Ovlmpic, while the noble palm is far removed, and the glowing goal is alas, too well avoided. But now the end is well in sight; and marvellous strange the school year has an end ! Those who have been first in the race, feel their droopspirits revive, and their nerves strung to fullest tension, while even the lagging tail ...
TRISTE VALE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1885
TRISTE VALE. Farewell, my faithful steed, farewell! My parting grief no tongue may tell, For thou hast served me—ah ! so well, My pony'. Not Pegasus, in days of yore, With lighter foot his master bore, Than thou hast me 'long Latium's shore, My pony'. How oft, in hours of direst need, With help from thee, my ready steed, I'd dart through Greece with wondrous speed, My pony'. But now we part, my gallant one. Our classic course is almost done; The last bold race is almost run, My potiy! Old Jock.
DOES A STRAW SHOW THE WAY THE WIND BLOWS? [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1885
DOES A STRAW SHOW THE WAY THE WIND BLOWS? Certainly ; and not only whence it blows, but how it blows, showing us with even greater exactness than any meteorological bulletin affords, whether a zephyr is on its wing or a cyclone on its whirl. This diminutive piece of grass assures us, therefore, of two desirable facts, the direction whence, and the velocity with which the wind flies. But here we meet with our first difficulty which voices itself in this interrogation ; will the straw furnish us this dual knowledge, when hidden in the haystack, or when fearfully alive to the proximity of an awful fate at the mouth of the hungry horse? Certainly not; its utility for our purpose is circumscribed to a forced segregation from its fellows and an uncharitable exposure to the cold, cold world. This conditional locality must be duly appreciated as regards the literal fact, that we may not go astray on its figurative application. For example, we might complacently remark of a man whose associa...
WHY MUST WE LOVE? [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1885
WHY MUST WE LOVE? Why must we love, when our dreams of bliss Fade all so soon away? Why must we love in a realm like this Of darkness and decay ? Why was the beautiful born to dwell Deep in our hearts with a mystic spell, Bidding us worship it long and well, The idol of a day.? Why must we love in this changeful sphere, Where gleams of summer light Vanishing leave but a cloud, a tear— Shadows where all was bright? Why do we cherish each thrilling tone, Gushes of melody, swiftly flown, Leaving us sadly to weep alone, Alone in the voiceless night? Why must we toil with a viewless chain, Weaving its weight of woe, Linking bright smiles with a fearful pain Racking the heart below? Why must the spirit in secret pine, Laying its all on*the same dear shrine, Frail things that seem almost divine, Why must we love them so? Why must we love, when the yawning tomb Ever may claim its prize, Hiding away in its depths of gloom Laughter of sunny eyes, Robbing the cheek of its crimson glow, Sealing...
DAY-DREAMING. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1885
DAY-DREAMING. To one given to day-dreaming, what can be more delightful than to wander about, with no other companion than our own thoughts, over the broad open meadow but just covered with the verdant carpet of Spring, and give free rein to a lively imagination ; to soar, unrestrained by the sense of any duty to be performed, on the golden pinions of fancy into that realm of the imagination in which boys, when alone, are so wont to divert themselves ; to gaze upon the vaulted dome of blue, flecked with fleecy clouds, that seem to be melting away under the rays of the mounting sun ; to look across the open fields to where the rivulet winds gladsomely through the pasture, until at last the view is shut ofl by the hills that look blue in the distance, with their sombre, thickly-wooded summits. While up from the orchard comes, wafted by the gentle winds, the fragrant breath of the apple-blossoms. Surely, on such a morning, when all nature seems buckling into a new life, one could scarc...
DOMI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1885
DOMI. Practice makes perfect. We all felt sorry for the umpire. It was mean of the Rudi. to challenge the nine. The play for Commencement is "The Merchant of Venice." The conductor thought the bovs were returning home from a funeral. The Sodality of the Blessed Virgin will hold a reunion on Ascension Day. It is rumored that the First Grammar nine are to have an outfit that will terrify opposing teams. Rupert S. Carven, formerly of the class of 'S7. has been appointed clerk in the Auditor's office at City Hall. The First Grammar nine, April iSth, on the Back Bay grounds, defeated a picked nine from Rhetoric and poetry. The score was 8 to 5. Our Polo club made quite a hit at Cambridge. Though the " Six" are very young, Master Harry Brooks, their captain, promises to make them a splendid team. The public contest will take place about the beginning of June. All bets may be placed in the hands of our business manager, and we promise to see that fair play is had, that is, we will pay oft"...
EXCHANGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1885
EXCHANGE. The March number of the Adelphian is before us. We commend it for its neat and attractive appearance and general merit; but why not add grace to your pages by a few poetical effusions ? The Virginia University Magazine again presents itself to us with the usual good taste its editors are accustomed to display. Its articles, besides being calculated to be of interest to the general reader, are treated more at length, than is usual in most College journals. We congratulate the editors of the Notre Dame Scholastic on being able to edit a weekly, but we think they should bring out pure college work. In the issue before us, April 29. we find "The Country West of the Mississippi" by Prof. William Hoynes, and a paper on "Photography" from the Scientific Societv. What are the University classes doing? We like the Exchange notes of the Scholastic very much, in fact, they are the most interesting part of the paper to us. The leading article this month in the Ford ham College Monthly...
