MULTIFORM NONENTITY. (Lecture before the Joe Cook Club.) [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 January 1879

MULTIFORM NONENTITY. (Lecture before the Joe Cook Club.) BY CORNICULA. (.Special arrangement with COLUMBIA SPECTATOR.) THE evening was an uproarious one, and the water rushed in rivers down the streets so that the Jersey ferries ran up to the door. Such a quantity of water had not been seen in New York since New Year day. Promptly at eight the lecturer appeared, clad in a Paul Boyton swimming suit, carrying an American flag in his left hand, while in his right a copy of The New York Herald to add to his personal dignity. A large basket of flowers had the following letters in Marshal O'Neil roses. " Cornicula. From loving friends on the Island" (Blackwell's). PRELUDE ON CURRENT EVENTS. As I entered this light-house dripping with the primary elements, Earth, Air, and Fire-water, I thought what a sea of trouble we are in over the cape-rs of Continental theories ! Can we not straighten up the Germ-an theory and the cell-ar somewhat. I have prepared myself by swallowing the port and chew...

OUR FOREIGN LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 January 1879

OUR FOREIGN LETTER. BERLIN, Dec. 20th, 1878. Dear Spectator: — THE American students at Berlin turned out quite strongly the other day at the entry of the Emperor, which occasion was employed, as you know, by the Berliners, to testify their loyalty to the aged monarch, and their detestation of the recent crazy attempts on his life. The American students at the University of Berlin are not a compact body, as is the case at some ol the smaller universities. An effort, however, on the part of some of the older residents, succeeded in mustering about forty on the morning of the procession. This little band carried the German and their own national colors, and had been assigned a good position in the succession of student organizations and corps, which formed the bulk of the line of honor. With laudable prudence, all the necessary police forms had been carefully at- tended to, and it was understood thaf we were to abstain from anything boisterous in the way of demonstration—for it was a ...

CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 January 1879

CORRESPONDENCE. Eds. of the Col. Spectator : DEAR SIRS. I HOPE you will allow me the freedom of your columns to complain against' the action of '79 in increasing the Semi-Annual tax from four to five dollars. Last year, when the college numbered 227 students, the tax was four dollars, but now, when the students have increased to 246, the tax is "raised" one dollar, though I doubt if many will " see " them. This is done, I hear, in order that there may be no deficit. The seniors had better remember the fact that they have at least one box apiece, and that they should pay more for that privilege. But these gentlemen, with that lofty spirit that a senior is supposed to have, decided that they would not pay the assessment, but make the other three classes pay, while '79 had the honor of managing it. It is also said that enough men will pay five dollars, so that as much money will be raised this as last year. Even if that should be done, which fact I doubt very much, there will be no mor...

ABOUT COLLEGE. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 January 1879

ABOUT COLLEGE. THIS is the season of subscriptions. MITCHELL, 'Bl has left college. "EVANGELINE" theatre parties are now all the rage. GET ready your cash, as the committees are coming around. EIGHTY-TWO has received two additions lately., Messrs. Baker and Knapp. THE longing after rope-pulls and tugs-of-war has reached some of our Professors' rooms. THE bad weather which has prevailed almost all last week stopped the work on the new buildings. W. H. TAYLOR, 'BO, one of the SPECTATOR board has come back to college, having returned from a trip to Texas. MR. ASHMORE has not been well lately and the Freshmen in this way have had several hours for additional study. ON account of the absence of Prof. Newberry in Nevada, the Seniors got off the last hour of Thursday, Jan. 9th. IT gives us much pleasure to see that the marks are now posted in the cloak-room as well as in the President's Office. COMMITTEES have been formed in the Sophomore and Freshman classes, College and Mines, to solicit...

School of Mines. "T A 7HAT a tart little stove in Dr. Waller's office. V * PROF. Van Amringe has in hand the publication of a report of the summer class in machinery which met during the vacation of 1878. QUERIES. (7.) What causes those white stains sometimes seen on a new brick wall? (8.) How is irridescent glass produced ? ANSWER. (3.) In the distillation of a given body of coal, by weight remains as coke. IF any gentleman should desire to purchase a convenient dictonary for a reasonable price, I would take pleasure to recommend Schmidt & Maul's, which is as goot as any, tho' of course, there may be others which are petter !!!

COLLEGE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 January 1879

COLLEGE WORLD. Dartmouth : Only thirteen " Medics" in attendance this term. Twenty-eight books added to Library since October 28th, 1878. Mr. Henry Winkley has added $lO,OOO to a former donation of $25,000, to endow a professorship in the Anglo-Saxon and English Language and Literature. The chair thus liberally endowed will not be filled at once. The term opened Friday, as usual, with chapel exercises. Instead of the harmonious strains which usually emanate from the choir, the Faculty, assisted by several students, rendered a very difficult selection. Harvard : The Nine is in daily practice at the gym nasium. The Medical School are in great lack of subjects for dissection. The theatricals in aid of the Boat Club, that were given in Boston by members of the Senior class, were a great success financially as well as dramatically. At a late meeting of the Freshman class it was voted to send a letter to the Yale Freshmen, looking to a race next summer. In case an unfavorable answer is re...

OUR EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 January 1879

OUR EXCHANGES. THE last number of the Spirit of the Times, (January nth,) is an excellent one. It opens with an interesting article on " Ancient Archery from Various Sources." Its "Answers to Correspondents," and its " Athletic Department," would alone place it at the head of American Sporting papers. It most certainly is " A Chronicle of the Turf, Field Sports. Aquatics, Agriculture, and the Stage," as it says on its title page, and well is called "The American Gentleman's Newspaper." We clip the following from an editorial, which treats of Oxford's refusal of Harvard's challenge. "In a text-book of ' Aquatic Zoblogy,' which we fear has not been carefully studied at 'the Great Universities', we find the following classified as non-ex-tinct genera of the order, American Collegiate Oarsmen : ' Columbia; minor educational institution of New York City; has beaten Oxford, Cambridge, Dublin, Harvard, Yale, Cornell, Wesleyan, Williams, Dartmouth, Trinity, Princeton, Brown, Amherst, Bowdoi...

MUSIC AND THE DRAMA. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 January 1879

MUSIC AND THE DRAMA. ' £ VANGELINE " has been brought out within J__i the last four weeks twice ; once by Stetson's Troupe, at Booth's Theatre, and secondly by Rice's original troupe, at the Lyceum. In respect to the former troupe we were disappointed. Mr. Maffit, who represented the " Lone Fisherman," being its sole redeeming point. Mr. Rice, however, has brought forward a good cast. The old favorites, Miss Lizzie Webster and Miss Venie Clancey, with Hunter, are earning fresh laurels lor themselves. Mr. Fortescue as " Catharine," is immense. The remainder of the cast is fair, but the absence of Messrs. Knight and Russell is noticeable. THE Colville Folly Company, at the Park Theatre, have been attracting good audiences during the past three weeks by the very amusing burlesques, " The Babes in the Wood " and "Robinson Crusoe." The setting of the piece, and the cast, is very creditable. We are sorry that lack of space prevents a more extended criticism. THE Flarvard Theatricals went ...

A NOTICE in a Western paper of a steamboat explosion ends as follows: " The captain swam ashore. So did the chambermaid ; she was insured for $15,000 and loaded with iron." IT was the Chicago Journal that said " a few more medical schools, and there will be no business left for resurrection day." WE saw a young man with two heads on his shoulders the other day, but didn't consider it much of a curiosity —one belonged to his girl.— College Argus. BETTER is it to sit on a barrel at the corner grocery with contentment, than to repose in the most luxurious easy chair, adorned with tidy in the house of the order-loving woman. — Boston Transcript.

CURRENT TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 February 1879

CURRENT TOPICS. WITH this number ends Volume 111. of THE SPECTATOR. Henceforth, the numbers published in each term will constitute a volume. It has seemed advisable for several reasons to make this change. In the first place the new board of editors will go in with the first of March number, and it seemed but fair that they should as nearly as possible go in with a new volume also. Again, it is proposed to make some important improvements in the paper next term, and it appeared better to have them commence with an entirely new volume. Moreover it was found that in obtaining advertisements it would be expedient to have some other division than the one from October to June. Subscriptions will of course continue to be payable in advance for the entire college year. This much for the change in volumes, which is really more for the convenience of the editors than for any other reason. Its only effect will be, we hope, to raise the standard of the paper. THE new board of editors of THE SP...

ONLY A VASSAR GIRL. (A Tale of Moonshine, Mystery, and Misery.) [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 February 1879

ONLY A VASSAR GIRL. (A Tale of Moonshine, Mystery, and Misery.) BY CORNICULA. CHAPTER I. — Introduction. PROBABLY the greatest mistake of my life was being born a man. I always had small hands and feet. When I was young, my mama made me wear camphor-ice and gloves on the former, and on the latter shoes two or three sizes too small. My hair was flaxen and always inclined to curl. Even at sixteen years of age a lady offered me twenty-five dollars if I would allow one or two curls to grow for a switch for her. My nose was small, my features equisitely beautiful, while a delicate mouth studded with two shining rows of glistening ivories enhanced the general grandeur of my appearance. In fact everyone said it was a mistake that I was not a girl. My voice, delicate and refined, had that low, sweet plaintiveness in it, akin to the tone of the bird of Paradise when he woos his dusky mate. In passing through Columbia, which 1 did safely, on account of relationship to several distinguished pe...

A SKETCH OF THE FUTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 February 1879

A SKETCH OF THE FUTURE. I. THE Christmas holidays were almost gone, and Publius sat in a great easy chair before a glorious log fire, the relic of a past age. The night was bleak and cold, but the blusterings of rude old Boreas, as he howled down the wide, old-fashioned chimney, only served as a pleasing allurement to reflection. The world out of doors seemed very far off from Publius just then, but he sat puffing out great blue clouds of fragrant smoke, as he recalled to memory sundry acts of rather doubtful morality which had been incident to his academic career. There were those excuses, and ponies and other things of the same kind, too familiar to require mention, while each separate crib seemed to have an accusing tongue —in short, he was undergoing the rather disagreeable process known as "repenting his sins." Of course, he promised himself never to do so again, and even as he promised, his thoughts were turned aside by a ring of smoke, executed better than usual, which seemed...

MATERNAL SOLICITUDE. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 February 1879

MATERNAL SOLICITUDE. ON Thursday, at precisely 9:31:01 A. M. by the Western Union time ball, a lady well known in literary circles appeared on our wind-swept campus. (Her name is Mrs. Partington, but as she does not wish it known, we won't mention it here.) dhat distinguished vocalist, Mr. W —ks, perceiving her, hastily ejaculated a warning to M—k-, who was relating a tale of the baby-cup to a group of admiring Sophs, and approached her with an activity and grace only equaled by Campana on his last lap. Lifting his well blocked beaver, thus, he speaking, addressed her with words : " Oh, queen ! fairest of mortals that I have seen with mine eyes, lately I saw such a shoot of young palm growing up in Moran's restaurant, the miners got her to hand out pie and weak lemonade at their reception, dost thou come to hear Rood lecture?" " No, youngman ; I don't come to hear any rude lecture, but to insult the faculties of Columbia College about my Ike, please deduct me to Pres. Barnard." St. ...

OUR FOREIGN LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 February 1879

OUR FOREIGN LETTER. Dear Mr. Editor: — I SUPPOSE it is generally known that there are not what are called Secret Societies in either of the English Universities, nor indeed, any body which bears more than the slightest resemblance to them, as they exist in American Universities. There are, of course, clubs, existing solely as such, and clubs whose principal raison d'etre is the purpose of Debate. Indeed, I fancy that a Secret Society, such as are the best known and most influential in the United States, would be unlawful, here in England. In the course of my law-reading, I remember having seen something to that effect and now, before me, have the lines that bear on the point. Reading from Stevens' " Digest of the Criminal Law," I find that by an act of 37. Geo. 111, "every one is guilty of felony, and punishable with penal servitude for seven years as a maximum, and five years, as a minimum punishment, who is convicted of: administering, or causing to be administered, aiding or assi...

CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 February 1879

CORRESPONDENCE. Eds. of the Columbia Spectator : IN the last number of THE SPECTATOR I read a letter signed " Sigma " which I do not think should remain unanswered. He starts with the statement that "last year when the college numbered 227 students the tax was four dollars, but now when the students have increased to 246 the tax is raised * * * this is done, I hear, in order that there may be no deficit." He heard rightly, there was a deficit last year and 19 new students means about 6 men who will pay or $24 more than last year, a large increase. The seniors generally have to meet a large deficit and this year it is assuming such proportions that they may not dare to attempt to hold the SemiAnnual as the Academy of Music and printers' bills have to be paid in advance. It would seem a great pity if the college entertainment has to be given up on account of the niggardness of some of the underclassmen. Eighty, Eighty-one, and Eighty-two will all be seniors in time and have the honor ...

AT the last meeting of THE COLUMBIA SPECTATOR ASSOCIATION, the project of dividing the present volume into two, was discussed, each volume to consist of nine numbers.

SPORTING COLUMN. Boating. COLUMBIA. —The sophomores have braced up and elected A. H. Van Sinderen their class captain. ExCapt. Goodwin has said that eighty-one has the material in her to turn out the best class crew Columbia has ever shown. Now, the other classes will have a chance in the Spring to prove the falsity of that statement. CORNELL.—The Era, in commenting upon the Harvard letter, and the withdrawal of their (Cornell's) challenge, says : " Harvard has not acted squarely in the matter, and it will require more than a counter and unfounded charge of discourtesy against us, to set her straight in the minds of those acquainted with the facts."

School of Mines. AT a meeting of the class of '79, held Jan. 23d, Mr. Hollerith formally resigned his position as one of the two commencement speakers, and Mr. Edwin Ludlow was elected in his place. ANSWERS. (7.) Iridescent glass, which is coming into use in the manufacture of ornaments, is produced by contact of the vapors of chloride of tin while the glass is in a liquid condition. (8.) The white stain, sometimes seen on a new brick wall, is in some cases caused by an excess of lime in the mortar, which is washed out by the rain. Also by Mg S 0 4 , and other soluble salts contained in the mortar. It is occasionally due to the fact that the water which is given off in the hardening of mortar, being necessarily lime-water, is acted upon by the carbonic acid of the air and leaves a deposit of carbonate of lime. This action generally takes place, however, in the pores of the brick, and not on the surface. PROF. TROWBRIDGE has issued a " Report as to the Operations of the Summer Classe...
