AUTUMN. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 October 1885
AUTUMN. The Summer's golden days are past. And all its blooming tints are fled. With Autumn's frost, how sadly fast The withering Blight has come instead ! Rudely, the chilling blasts sweep by. And call aloud. O man ! to thee.— ■Go read upon the brown leaves nigh Thy quick approaching destiny. As fairest blossoms withered lie. Sweet, simple tokens of decay, So time's rude frost will dim thine eye. And thou too, soon, wilt pass away." Bright Autumn leaves. I gaze on ye, And visions sweet my bosom swell; Ye make no saddened thought for me. Though mine own fate ye seem to tellWhen last I gazed, all burnished green The summer woods were waving fair ; — And now I see the sombre screen That only Autumn forests bear. Ah ! ye are fading not more fast Than he who loves sweet Autumn's gloom ; His moments here will soon be past. Until with you he finds a tomb. 'Twere sweet to die 'mid Autumn hours. When mourning forests sadly wave; Fitter are withered leaves than flowers, To strew upon an earl...
THE GOOD OLD TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 October 1885
THE GOOD OLD TIMES. As there are many persons, possessed of a fickle temperament, who have a constant passion within them for novelties, and who can see nothing of the good and beautiful in what is old. so, also, are there others who. continually harping on the merits of the past, take delight in a thing only as it savors of antiquity. These men would convince us that the world, as it grows older, is decreasing in virtue ; that our grandsires' age was less ignoble than our fathers', and that we, worse than they, shall leave behind us a race still more depraved. The complaint of the world's degeneration has been made century after century. The Greek and Roman idea of the four ages of the world, which Ovid so beautifully describes in his Metamorphosis, rests on this ; and Horace, in one of his odes on the social corruption of the times, comparing the effeminacy of his age with the stern virtues of the first Romans, breaks out in condemnation of his own generation and the ones immediat...
MEDIAEVAL SCHOLARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 October 1885
MEDIAEVAL SCHOLARS. "From Paul's I went to Eton sent To learn straightway the Latin phrase Where fifty three stripes given me At once I had." The above plaint, dear reader, was uttered by a small boy who had passed from the primary school at St. Paul's to the more advanced classes of Eton and his entrance was celebrated in the manner above described. You have often heard that children in old times were wont to lisp in Latin. I always discredited the story until I fell upon these quaint lines and then I wondered how it could be otherwise. For, thought I, if in time past a boy got fifty three stripes gratis, how many would he receive for a grammar lesson badly learned ; and where is the small boy who would not lisp even in Choctaw to escape but ten stripes? These lines, I have said, rather unsettled my ideas in regard to the acquirements and training of mediaeval small boys. So I set myself to getting some clear notions on the matter. And, reader, if you are a small boy my gleanings f...
ATHLETICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 October 1885
ATHLETICS. The first meeting of the Athletic Association was held Saturday, Oct. 17, on Boston base ball grounds. A pleasant time was passed, although no records were broken. Contestants from all the university classes, with the exception of 'B6, participated in the sports. The sports for which prizes were given, resulted as follows; 100 yds. dash, won bv J. E. Kelly, 'B7, 11% seconds; putting shot, 12y 2 lbs., won by A. F. Judge, 'BB, 38 ft. 5 in. ; three-legged race, 60 vds., M. J. Connelly, 'B7, and P. H. Ford, 'S7, 11% seconds; throwing base ball, A. F.

STYLAWATHA. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 October 1885
STYLAWATHA. Should you ask me why this dunning, Why all these complaints and murmurs, Murmurs loud about delinquents. Who have read the paper monthly. Read what they have never paid for. Essays from the stately Sophist. Burning speeches from the Rhetor. All the phantasies and phospor— Essence of the poet's corner. All the combined wit and wisdom Fact and fancy of the Domi. From the printer, from the mailer. From the kind old paper maker. From the man who taxes letters, With the stamp of L'ncle Samuel — Uncle Sam the rowdies call him— From them all there comes a message Sweet but ominously spoken : ■ Please to pay the bill you owe me." Sad it is to hear the message. When our funds are all exhausted, When the last greenback has left us. When the nickles all have vanished, Gone to pay the toiling printer. Gone to pay the paper-maker. Gone to pay old Uncle Samuel. Uncle Sam who always charges. Sad it is to turn our ledger, Turn the leaves of this old ledger. Turn and see what sums are d...
THE STUDENT'S DREAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 October 1885
THE STUDENT'S DREAM. I have in my possession an old Ilomer with bnt one cover, and that such a sorry one, that I have been often minded to tear it off; its leaves, besides being here and there a little torn, are well thumbed, and those containing the notes bear marks of the high regard in which they, the notes, were held bv the several owners of the book. I came across this Homer in a dingv. second-hand book-store, where, as the pinched looking old gentleman with glasses told me, it had lain for manv a vear ; no one thinking it worth while to bother with so dilapidated a book. Wishing to rescue it from the fate that usually awaits old books, I purchased it for a trifle, little dreaming of the solace I was to receive from it. Otten. when wean* and sick at heart from those idioms and constantly-occurring little particles of a foreign tongue, I found consolation in seeing the same difficulties, that I encounter, marked, words underlined and hard passages in parentheses ; for, surely, t...
ALUMNI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 October 1885
ALUMNI. Never before in the annals of Boston College have the walls of our Alma Mater fostered so many precious souls beneath her loving care, and so rapidly have the ranks of the students increased that even the sanctum of the Faculty has been sacrificed and converted to a class-room. Though surrounded dailv by numerous happy faces we still miss the familiar tones and hearty shake of our old companions who during the past few years have passed from the walls of our Alma Mater and joined the ranks of our beloved Alumni. Several of these have been members of the STYLUS board during the past few years, and during that time they ever expressed their hearty desire to hear from past graduates. Let them not forget this, and that they are now enrolled among the Alumni, and we expect to receive from them that which they so much desired to receive from the others. At the same time we continue to call upon the old Alumni to favor us with a visit, as we are ever willing and ready to receive th...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 October 1885
The summer of joy has passed ; and fresh from the green, sunnv fields of pleasure the student with renewed courage lias brushed from his books the gathering dust to renew again, at the ringing of the old College-bell, the daily task and routine of scholastic life. Again, with the opening of the fourth volume. the STYLUS greets its friends. During the past year, our paper true to its founder's motto "Excelsior," has striven to beai* aloft its standard ; and the many and generous congratulations received from subscribers and exchanges show us that our efforts were not altogether vain. But, though the past be secure, it remains with ourselves to solve the future; and, if our paper would maintain its prestige, the Editors must receive a more hearty support than they did in the past. It must be understood the present staff' never accepted the duties of their office with even the least suspicion that on them would fall the burden of supplying the greater part of the contributions for ever...
DOMI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 October 1885
DOMI. The STYLUS office is for editors only. "Procul profani." The St. Cecelia Society is under the directorship of Mr. Ryan. Rhetoricians find Calculus a pleasant relaxation from the more arduous duties of their class. Fr. Halpin gives the lectures this year to the senior division of Catechism, and Fr. Welch to the junior. Both Sodalities have renewed their exercises of last year and the Debating Societies have called their rolls. Our Palaestra, though spacious in itself, has become somewhat too crowded since the latest accessions to our ranks. Owing to the unusual desire for order and diligence on the part of the school. "Jug" was not opened until Oct. nth. Professor Samuel R. Kelley, A.M., is instructor of elocution again. The students cannot but appreciate the value of his course. At the close of September, we numbered two hundred and eightv five. Glorious number! Illustrious phalanx! Is not our star in the ascendant: Once more the college resounds with the merry voices of the s...
BOYS AND BOOKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 October 1885
BOYS AND BOOKS. Perhaps from the title of my subject one would be led to expect a rehearsal of the old repugnance, which has long since passed into a proverb, between boys and books. But though our Toms and Jacks may view with horror and disgust the mass of books piled up before them ; and long to here the old school-bell ring out their freedom, to rove and scamper in the fields, vet this dislike is not inherent. Their buoyant spirits cannot brook the master's frown nor their cheerful disposition submit to the stern principles of books and seers. Nevertheless the merry sports, the holidays, that bring freedom from the thraldom of lessons, beget a clear and unembarrassed memory ; a joyous hope and eager expectation which at once dispose their minds to seek for knowledge and qualify them for gaining it. Soon his books grow dearer to a bov's mind. True, occasionally we find him buried in some romantic novel, but maturer years weans him from such false friends, and then his old school-b...
WINTER'S ADVENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 October 1885
WINTER'S ADVENT. When the brow of the morning is misty and gray. Then silently Winter steals over the lawn ; He dares not to come in the broad open day. But waits till the curtains of twilight are drawn. Far over the meadow he'll noiselessly pass, For soft as the wool are his sandals of frost. The heart of the maple grows cold at his face. The flowers are dead where his footsteps have crossed. Along the green pathway and over the brow Of the hill, and out by the woodland he'll pass. To snatch the red leaves from the sycamore's bough And fetter the fountain that freshened the grass. He laughs at the numb viny fingers enclose From the branch where the bitter-sweet nestled for weeks. And crossing the orchard he chills as he goes The mellowing apples and blanches their cheeks. The robins all start as he ventures anear, And much do they tremble with terror and chill; And far shall they flee from the stranger thev fear. To the groves where the summer is lingering still. But still in the d...
A RETROSPECT. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 October 1885
A RETROSPECT. From out oblivion's rubbish heap. The dusty hand of memory brings The gathered waste of mortal things. Mouldering in decaying sleep. A feather of some childish pride; A ringlet of some laughing glee. A laurel-leaf of rivalry, A shroud which wound a hope that died. And linking hand in hand with mine. She leads me through the narrowing way, Backward toward my natal dav, Undoing all the work of time. Till Being's landmarks fail my sight; And losing all I've gained from earth, I seem to ebb from out my birth. And lapse again in primal night. "Ex," 'B7.

EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 October 1885
EXCHANGES. We are pleased to notice so many new visitors among our exchanges; and glad to find that our old friends have not forgotten us. All are welcome, the new as well as the old, and we trust that we shall be excellent friends. The first at hand is the College Student; nearly one-half of the journal is devoted to an exhausting address on "Some Reflections on Kant's System of Ethics." We had to read it on the instalment plan, for the article was too elaborate, too heavy for a journal of this kind. The Delaware College Review for October is filled with interesting college news, and must be very highly prized by the students. Its editors certainly deserve great credit for the zealous interest which they manifest in their institution. Among our recent exchanges is the Oak Lily a?id the Ivy, published bv the scholars of the Medford high school. Very prettily and very appropriately have you named your sprightly little paper, young ladies and gentlemen. Your determination to devote yo...
