WINTER SONG OF THE COBBLER. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1885

WINTER SONG OF THE COBBLER. The cold wind whistles around the shop. It whistles around the window-pane, It whistles across the chimney-top, But the cobbler whistles a merrier strain, While upper and sole go flippity-flop, And winds gb whistling round the shop. Mv rich old neighbor is troubled in mind, Lest his riches may suddenly put on wings, Lest his houses may burn in the night, when the wind Is high—but the cobbler laughs and sings, And whistles and works with a flippity-flop, While night-winds whistle around the shop. O ve who shiver and shake out-doors, Whose beards are frosty, but not with age, Think of him who sits where the stove-pipe roars, And laughs at the storm-king's impotent rage; W r hile leather and last go flippity-flop, And winds go whistling round the shop. At home, there's need of a hood, a frock, A book, a slate, or a nice new doll For the youngest and brightest of all the flock, There are four or five of the flock in all; For whom the leather goes flippity-flo...

POLLY'S CHRISTMAS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1885

POLLY'S CHRISTMAS. It was Christmas eve. The eighteen hundred and seventy second that blessed Mother Earth, and the seventh since that which first saw baby Poll, the blue-eyed treasure of the household, plunder the depths of her tiny stocking and like a little cannibal devour the candy men and ginger-bread elephants. Nor seemed her omnivorous appetite to be ever appeased ; for men, monkeys, engines, mangled and broken lay about her in sticky confusion. She really seemed trying to make up for the hundreds of such days she had missed ; and when interrupted in this bloodless carnival, she gave a scream that was truly savage. But seven years had passed since that first Christmas and this little cannibal had made some progress in civilization, though it was whispered she would still eat a man : her predilection for elephants she openly acknowledged. Yet for all that Poll}- had the kindest disposition, the most sympathetic heart, the readiest hand and warmest love for everybody. For weeks...

PUERO JESU CUNABULIS JACENTI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1885

PUERO JESU CUNABULIS JACENTI. O qnem te aspicio ! Brumae satis ingruit horror At vix te vestis dilacerata tegit. Et gaudes geminos inter vagire juvencos, Afflatu lit foveant frigida membra tibi. Nec dedignaris rigidi cunabula foeni, Nec pudet in parva decubuisse specu Jesu, tantapati quidnam te jussit? Amasti. Ut patiare puer talia fecit amor. Plaudite mortales, jam nunc conspirat amice Pax cum justitia, saecula pacis erunt. Mittite degeneres curas trepidosque timores. Exulet e terris, qui fuitante. dolor. Plaudite mortales, speluncam quaerite, Regi Aurum, thus, myrrham, munera ferte Deo.

THE NEW BASEMENT CHAPEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1885

THE NEW BASEMENT CHAPEL. Any description of the work upon the basement chapel of I late so happily and beautifully executed, must seem meagre and unsatisfactory to those who have seen it and is pardonable only so far as it may urge others to examine it for themselves. As the visitor enters the spacious side door if he be familiar with the old chapel, he will find it difficult to recognize it under its new form, so complete has been its renovation. H ere the skill of an army of workmen subject to a few controlling master minds has utterly changed its appearance and wrought a marvel in architectural effect and suggestive coloring. Descending the flag-stone steps, we stand in the marbled-tiled aisle, and commence our investigation, giving to the subject only that natural order arising from the exposition of the sights which successively thrill us with admiration. To tell the truth we are not so near heaven as when the old floor supported us, for it has been sunk as much as three feet; ...

EN AVANT! [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1885

EN AVANT! Let the feeble-hearted pine, Let the sickly spirit whine, But to work and win be thine In the strife. Honor's smile is for the bold : So, boy, when your flag's unrolled, Grasp it with the strength you hold On to life. Frank Burns '9O. The Poets are writing Greek verse. They deserve the sympathy of all their fellow-students. The danger of an epidemic in our city this winter is happily averted. We notice from the Exchanges that the caustic pen of our Exchange Editor is'playing sad havoc among the poets in our sister colleges. He has the earnest co-operation of his fellow Editors in this philanthropic undertaking. It is interesting to watch the manner in which the students •of the different classes give the Catechism repetition. The First Grammarian timidly recites his disjointed Theology. And for the Poets—silly creatures, they seldom remember anything but the jokes. A bold and forcible style, with fullrounded period, characterizes the Rhetorician ; while the Philosophers cl...

“OUR CANDIDATE.” [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1885

“OUR CANDIDATE.” " From tiiat famed well my watery precepts glide Where Xaiad Truth is rumored to reside: Laugh not, ve wild Reformists; those who view My streams with care will see reflected—You." While this great and glorious republic was yet a fledgling, some few praiseworthy and honorable men strove to place it securely upon the broad pedestal of Liberty, and to originate for its digestion such judicious laws and statutes, that, fostered and protected beneath the spreading pinions of that noble Bird of Jove, the American Eagle, it should continue to thrive and develope to the end of time. During that Age of Gold, the Helmsmen of our Ship of State, fettered by ideas and illusions now obsolete, neither appointed nor removed except for valid and circumstantial reasons. The majesty of our great and indomitable people was upheld at home, and fittingly represented abroad. But that epoch of primeval simplicity passed away. The Silver and Brazen Ages speedilv succeeded. But perhaps, for...

THE CHRISTMAS GATHERING. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1885

THE CHRISTMAS GATHERING. Will they not come? Will merry Christmas bring No festive gathering, The priceless charities of hearth and home? The star-lit sky, how clear ! The air seems filled with tears, 'tis cold— Methinks it was not so of old. Trim, trim the fire, Tune harp and lyre; Be manful. O my soul, restrain the tear. Our old hearth-stone! Ah ! there are tear-drops there. And furrowed brows of care, And cups of bitterness. The shadowy one, Coming with stealthy tread, Has from his ebon wings in wrath, Shed wasting mildew on our path, And offers me In sympathy, The hearth stone memories only of the dead. Are they all here? Eight olive-plants had grown Around my old hearth-stone. Tike blossoms in the sunlight. Year by year As seeming ripeness came, God sent in love the reaper forth To take His harvest from the earth. Are they not here? Forgive the tear, Thev're here: mv heart embalms them in God's name. Ave, all are here : Seven are as jewels set In Heaven's own coronet, Teachers ...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1885

The STYLUS hailing the festive season girds itself in holiday attire to greet its friends and wish them the joys that t Christmas ever brings. Since "Excelsior" is our motto, we are determined to carry up our standard with all the zeal which high aims and willing hands can inspire. Around the Christmas fire perchance may gather the friends who are separated during the year bv the busy turmoil of life ; and how endearing is the charm that is felt as each incident recalls the scenes of the past. And so following the custom of our predecessors we present to subscribers our holiday number as a souvenir of merry Christmas of 'SS. But the sweet echoes of Christmas chimes have scarce died away before the knell of the departing year is being tolled in the distant church-tower. And as the chimes are re-echoed through the valley sweet memory recalls the joys we spent with thee, Old Year, though many a thorn lay beneath the roses. And now, Old Year, in the surrounding gloom where have perished...

DOMI. "Mass" Meetings are held dailv in the " Tug" room. All the classes are well represented. With duplicate " Jug-Book," most acute vision, and a marvelous omnipresence our Reverend Prefect finds little difficulty in discharging the manifold duties of his office. We have received many communications asking us for a good definition of a German Grammar. We think it maybe best defined as a system of facial contortions. Mr Mulry, Professor of Physics and Chemistry, has been appointed instructor of Second Mathematics. Mr. Renaud of Fordham College, X. Y. is Professor of First Grammar and Third French. i C. M. O'Connor 'S7, has been appointed reporter for the Boston Herald and Globe. The students appreciate the opportunity which is afforded them of communicating with their friends outside. r fhe Rhetoricians are soon to hold the obsequies over Antigone, the lovely Theban maiden. The services will be of such a nature as to inspire terror into the heart of the most ardent admirer of the G...

PEACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1885

PEACE. It is the perfect repose which man feels when his heart is attuned to the voice of God, and hand is in accord with heart. It was a fitting message from angelic lips. Vainly we had sought for it awav from God. It was his gift and the fruit of his coming. Did not the very restfulness of the world then foreshadow it? The clash of arms had ceased. Men paused for breath. No baleful watchfires gleamed from the heights. Fields waved with harvests where, but lately the death struggle had dyed them crimson. The voice of various labor was the only sound that broke upon the expectant hush of universal nature. There was peace 011 the hills and in the vallies. There was peace in Judea. There was peace in all the world. And suddenly, while shepherds were keeping the night-watches over their flocks, the " noon of night" was lit up with a Hush from the open portals of heaven and a multitude of angels was heard singing, ••Glory to God and Peace to men." This was the soft prelude, and these th...

A DREAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1885

A DREAM. I was sitting at my desk, puzzling my brain, striving to straighten out a set of books, for my class of bookkeeping. I am very fond of that study, and delight in solving the intricacies which some transactions present. But I was tired after a long day's work, and I fell to dreaming;—a wide-awake dream it was, but none the less a dream. I built airy castles of my future career in business. Bulky journals, and ponderous ledgers loomed up before me, filled with the records of equally weighty transactions. A Balance Sheet was presented to me by one of my clerks which conveyed the gratifying intelligence that my business had succeeded beyond my most sanguine expectations, and that, with the approach of another Christmas, I might retire from the turmoil of business, and— Here my dream suddenly shifted. Retire from business, and what? I had accumulated enough of this world's goods to support me in affluence for the rest of 1113- life. My Journal and Ledger recorded my pecuniary su...

HYGIENE OF THE MOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1885

HYGIENE OF THE MOUTH. (COMMUNICATED.) The comfort of a pure breath, the agreeable effect produced upon others by the exhibition of a clean and healthy mouth, the advantage of the teeth in vocalizing, the favorable impression made upon the general health by the ability thoroughly to masticate the food, exemption from the suffering which would be caused by diseased organs, and the possibility of the preservation and usefulness of the teeth till advanced life, are reasons sufficient, it would be thought, to induce everyone to pay that attention to the health of the mouth which could secure good results, As far as the teeth are concerned, their liability to decav and the fact that, unlike other portions of the body, they are not endowed with the power to repair injury or restore lost tissue, so that when decay has destroyed any portion of their structure there is no possibility of its restoration, are more urgent reasons why they should receive intelligent and earnest care. It is estima...

REFLECTIONS ON THE NEW YEAR'S EVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1885

REFLECTIONS ON THE NEW YEAR'S EVE. The New Year's Eve! the chill winds whistle shrill. And mournful flaps the lattice in the night, The snowfall mantles over dale and hill. And eddying snowdrifts blind thewildered sight. And all is still, save where in lighted halls, In snatches heard, being broken on the storm. The revel rings, and distant music falls, To which a hundred feet and hearts beat warm. The New Year's Eve! a night of love and glee. To those young hearts I fondly call my friends, But dear and lone this New Year's Eve to me, And pensively my mind to sadness tends. There is no eye that sorrow hath not wet; No breast that for a loved one doth not mourn, There is no joy untainted of regret, And griefs the portion of all woman-born. Ah me! the smiles, the tears there are to-night, Such is the sad variety of life, Here merry laughter peals in halls of light, There the lorn husband mourns his dying wife. Perchance in some low room withouta fire, Without a light perhaps or drink ...

SNOW-FLAKES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1885

SNOW-FLAKES. To one. who is fond of giving rein to his imagination, what can he a more veritable pleasure than to sit at the window on a day when all nature seems sleeping, and watch the flakes ot snow descending silently, softlv, from the bosom of the clouds. The warmth of the room in contrast to the chilly aspect of everything outside, imparts a feeling of comfort which can be hardly described. At first, a few stray flakes, so small as to be scarcely visible, steal sidelong and coquettishly down to earth. Others follow, until we have as far as eye can penetrate innumerable tiny flakes chasing each other in pretty confusion through the golden haze. How tranquillizing the effect. Is it association which brings to our mind the words of the Oloria, " et in terra pax hominibusC and soothes us with unutterable calm, while it lifts up our heart with the sweet hope the season inspires? Snow-flakes are truly as Longfellow says, "the poetry of the air so pure, so lightly held together, so m...
