DECORATION DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1885
DECORATION DAY. "Had I as many sons as I have hairs, I would not wish them to a fairer death. And so his knell is knolled." I stood beside the flower-decked graves of those Whose noble souls had long since passed away, And war-scarred men and heroes, too, were there, The living with the dead, who erst had stood Together on the smoky battlefield, Each breast a target for the bolts of war— They are immortal now. We mourn to-day, But Grief is crowned with immortelles that sprang From heroes' blood, our grief is full of joy, And not the hopeless feelings of Despair. 'Tis meet a nation's tears should freely flow, O nameless dead ! we greet you all and come In solemn silence round your tombs to give The simple homage that the future years Will better pay and men unborn will give More gladly, fondly than our hearts can feel. 'Tis fitting wheresoe'er our Stars and Stripes Are floating, there our flag should droop its folds. O nameless dead! upon your country's heart Your names and deeds are...
THOUGHTS ON DECORATION DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1885
THOUGHTS ON DECORATION DAY. What a train of reflections is awakened as we stand with reverential mien, over the graves of so many gallant soldiers, who have with heroic fortitude, borne the shock of the combat during the dark days of the Civil War ! All honor to the heroes, who, leaving the endearments of home, have so generously laid down their lives for the rights of their oppressed fellow-men, for the preservation of the Union. Who can say the age of heroeS has gone by ? Wherever Liberty has erected an altar, there will be found lives ready to be sacrificed upon it. We have not to read with amazement of the valiant deeds of the ancient Greeks and Romans that were performed through a sincere love of country; we need but look at the brilliant history of our own nation and there find patriotism as sterling as ever nature infused into breast of either Greek or Roman. To view the conduct of many of our unprincipled and shameless politicians, whose sole aim is to increase their wealth ...
THE FAERIE QUEENE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1885
THE FAERIE QUEENE. Edmund Spenser, England's gifted son of song, was born in East Smithfield, London, in the year 1553. Of his early life littleis known. There was, however, an illustrious family in the interior of England to which our poet in his writings claims to be related. "The nobility of the Spensers," says Gibbon, "has been illustrated and enriched by the trophies of Marlborough, but I exhort them to consider the Faerie Queene as the most precious jewel of their coronet." In his earlier life, Spenser being in that financial condition, when love is most imprudent, natui'ally fell a victim to love's alluring charms. But when love is in a man who is a poet at heart, it is sure to find vent through that most charming of the liberal arts; and it is said that we owe the "Shepherd's Calendar" and many other poems to this same lady whom he calls Rosalind. "The Shepherd's Calendar" he dedicated to Sir Phillip Sidney whose acquaintance was of no small value to Spenser. For as long as ...
MUSIC, POETRY AND PAINTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1885
MUSIC, POETRY AND PAINTING. Language, though the gift divine, the faculty possessed by man alone, the ruler of visible creation ; the channel through which his thoughts are communicated to others, looked at from the two-fold aspect of painting and music, has been reregarded by some as an inadequate means for the communication of thought. Spencer says, "How truly language must be regarded as a hindrance to the thought, though the necessary instrument of it, we shall clearly perceive on remembering the comparative force with which simple ideas are communicated by signs. Placing the finger on the lips is more forcible than to say, 'Do not speak.' No phrase can convey the idea of surprise so vividly as opening the eyes and raising the eyebrows." In the same manner, painting and music transmit ideas, the grandeur of which no words could portray. What language could describe the music of gentle Favonus playing on the mirrored surface of some sheltered bayou, or the love songs of the Dryad...
BASE BALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1885
BASE BALL. Thursday, May 21, was a day of much excitement for the college. Our brothers of Holy Cross came down on the noon train, and after dining at the Continental, started for the Union Grounds to meet their rivalry, our boys. The result of the game with Holy Cross was a genuine surprise to everybody. We went to the grounds expecting defeat, but were most agreeably surprised. Murphy and Falvey were in splendid trim and played a great game. Both sides were held down to three hits, although Byron's two-bagger increased our total to four. Scannell made his first appearance in this game and played without an error. Meade proved a puzzler to our boys and pitched a very creditable game ; while Russell at first was there every time. The umpiring of Mr. Foley of Holy Cross was faultless. Only once, when Falvey captured a fowl hit, was there any doubt in regard to his decision ; he gave his judgment as it appeared to him, and in this was perfectly justifiable. The score was : BOSTON COLL...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1885
Another scholastic year is almost done ; before we greet our friends again, the spirits of the dead school hours will have borne it away to its tomb in eternity, leaving nothing behind but the memories of happy hours when we strayed through the sunny fields of literature. We must not think the school year a dull or uneventful one. The palace dome of Knowledge hides a labyrinth through which no single thread can conduct the young and ardent student. But the year is dying—our year ! The drooping courage, the dull and slow-paced hours, the anxious faces peering through the open windows, all come with the first warm days of Summer and all are companions of the closing term. Not the choicest bits of Latin and Greek can tempt us ; every breeze, yea, even the East Wind is heavy with the drowsy perfumes of the poppies of Dreamland. Our courage is almost gone : few of us are strong enough to feel with Ulysses—"How dull it is to pause, to make an end, To rust unburnished, not to shine in use....
THE ORIGIN OF POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1885
THE ORIGIN OF POETRY. In ancient Scandinavian mythology we are told that the busy and ingenious dwarfs invented for their friend Fery, god of the i-ain and sunshine, a magical vessel perfectly shaped, but of the most minute dimensions, which could, however, at his desire be so dilated as to receive with ease into its capacious hold, all the deities of the upper world with their various arms and equipments. To us this mystical vessel is symbolic of a reality, and that reality is some small word which the Pygma-lion-like imagination of the poet drags forth from the hidden recesses of the mind transfusing the dead marble, with a living soul, which, electrified at the contact, springs up to embrace the universe. Such words are immortality, death, heaven, hell. And what cold passionate Plato can fathom their poetic depths? "Vex not thou the poet's mind, For thou canst not fathom it." Poetry depends not on condition, nor on knowledge, nor time; it is "that particle within us that expands,...
THE BALLAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1885
THE BALLAD. There are none, I hope, so simple-minded as to scorn the ballad, that repository of ancient historical knowledge. A store of national traditions is a nation's best wealth, the most glorious of heirlooms. After the lapse of centuries the deeds of the past are quite well known to us, thanks to the simple, grand ballad. Traditions of themselves inspire us with a sort of veneration, but they thrill our very souls when they are embodied in song and music. The noblest feelings are unkindled and our bosoms are fired with a pardonable spirit of emulation. Ballads can be made a grand means towards developing patriots. Such they have been, at times, and such they can be again. Moreover, the ballads of a people are invaluable as records of the great minstrelsy of the past. We will give but a very brief account of the elder bards. In the earliest state of Greece, all instruction was delivered in poetry, and, being picked up by the throng was reechoed throughout the land, In fact, th...

DOMI. Graduating exercises—June 24. Shakespeare's -'Merchant of Venice"—Tune 22. The valedictorian of the class of 'S5, George A. Lyons. The Poets voted to have an excursion when the tussel is over. Francis J. Cunningham, A. B. 'S4, will read the Masters' poem. The final contest in elocution was held in the Hall, Monday. June 1 st. The examinations will begin Monday, June 8, with a Greek composition. The Feast of St. Aloysius will be celebrated Monday, June 22. Class Reunions will take place on the same day. The club and college were taken by surprise when they saw the handsome colors of the college waved by the hand of a gay gallant. The manager of the nine wishes to express his thanks to Mr. Frank McQueeney who furnished the tickets for the Holy Cross game gratis. One of the Poets has abandoned his Muse and, giving himself up to love of sordid gain, plies a flourishing trade by disposing of his smuggled and confiscated goods at very low and tempting prices. The morning after the H...
EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1885
EXCHANGES. It is a pleasure for the weary editor to fall upon some palatable articles in the great bundle of Exchanges. We found several well-written pieces in the last number of the Adelphian. The College Message has a number of short, readable essays. That the Ex. Ed. is fond of his work is proven by his last efforts. Miss Anna McKee, a poor missionary, who wrote in the Blair Hall Magazine an absurd and bigoted account of religion in New Mexico, has met her just deserts. Annie, you should write to the Ex. Ed. of the Message when you are doubtful about points of Catholic theology ; we know he will gladly supply you with any reasonable amount of information. If he has not time to attend to your correspondence, write the Stylus, and we will send you a treatise on Baptism. The Polytechnic is a new Exchange, hailing from Troy. The articles are scientific, but not entirely so. We found some pleasing verses : "Her Marriage Ring" has the poetic stamp. The editorials are light and interest...
