EDITORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 October 1886
EDITORIAL. We are a little late this year in greeting our kind friends, but not the less cordial. They will perceive that we have adopted a new style, not in the fashion of our literature, which we are vain enough to think our friends and patrons would not care to see changed, except, of course, in the latitude and variety, within which budding Genius delights to give expansion to the sweep of her ethereal wings. Our change is more in the material than in the spiritual part of us. Like people who have grown of some importance on 'Change, we feel the necessity of presenting a rounder and more comfortable appearance. It insinuates, you see, a distinct period of our growth, and is a graceful way of acknowledging the criticisms of good society in our favor. But it is more, it is a delicate suggestion of what we intend to be. It would be a pity if the clothes were better than the gentleman. If we have gotten within new covers, and are grown more portly, it will be a pity if the soul of u...
HEARKEN, O ALUMNI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 October 1886
HEARKEN, O ALUMNI. The spirit of tiie STYLUS has always been conservative. What though the times were agog for novelties, it alwaysclung to the forms and institutions of its founder. Will, then, our readers recognize the STYLUS in its new dress? Be not incredulous the armor of gold this time encasesAchilles himself —no Patroclus in disguise boasts the hero'sdeeds. Presto, change and our paper enters upon another year of life, and almost in the guise of a magazine. We make no extravagant promises, yet, despite our innate modesty, by which we may incline to obscure, though we cannot conceal our merits, we know that, as ever, we shall find friends and admirers wherever culture will appreciate, liberality patronize, or recognition adorn. There never was a book, says old Chris. North, but had some yawns in it; the STYLUS may not escape this gaping mishap, "bonus et dormitat Homerus." But such articles will be chosen for it, ascourt the intellect, entertain and divert the weary, and so ch...
DO MI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 October 1886
DO MI. To talk gracefully of trifles is so difficult that the poor Domi -editor turns up the whites of his eyes when he contemplates the columns he must contribute to each issue. Wont some kindly souls in the different classes jot down items for him and fill his reportorial satchel with those bits of information on college happenings, which, combined with society records, will help him in the compilation of his manuscript. We wish to remind our readers that we are a bi-monthly, so that ther may not wonder at our talking of the events and incidents that characterize the month of September. Our opening day, though darkened by the enforced absence of our Reverend President, who has just recovered from a long and wasting sickness, was, indeed, a propitious one, and was the occasion of all that activity, bustle, and excitement which attend the changes and formations of classes, the examination and reception of new comers, the meeting of old chums, and the first dash into the gymnasium. T...
HALF AN HOUR IN A RAILWAY STATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 October 1886
HALF AN HOUR IN A RAILWAY STATION. One pleasant day in early summer, while I was rambling through the city, I came to one of our large depots. Outside the station was the bustle of hacks and express teams. The first thing that greeted my ears on entering was the clamor of the hackmen, whose persisted offers of friendly service at moderate rates, I regarded with as much concern as I would the quack-quack of a crowd of obstreperous ganders, scolding me for intruding upon their domains. Elbowing my way through these featherless bipeds, I was soon surrounded by men of all nations and of different grades in life. Here passed before me the shrewd business man, the able statesman, and the common laborer, each bent upon his own pursuit. Everything was noisy and everybody seemed in a hurry. People were busily running to and fro attending to their baggage and other minor affairs preparatory to a long ride on a railroad train. At this season of the year the number of people that leave the city...
ERRORS THAT ARE THE BATE OF GENIUS, [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 October 1886
ERRORS THAT ARE THE BATE OF GENIUS, We have all read of those magnificent tropical forests, which defv the imagination itself to reproduce their vegetation in itsvariety and combinations of color, in its modifications of shape and size, in its wealth of fragrance. Within these charmed circles, assemble birds whose brilliant plumage fairly rivals the bright beauty of the flowers, and whose song is nature's voice y sweetly insinuating itself into the deep revery of the enchanted beholder. And above this scene of beauty spreads the undecked azure of the sky, whose loveliness is merely suggested by an occasional opening in the tree tops. Beauty, melody, fragrance, delight the sensual nature. But as we still gaze, therecomes a hiss, a sudden shooting forward of a sinuous body and the songster's voice is hushed forever. Then all around are heard discordant cries and wickedly flashing eyes are seen glaring from every covert, and the luxuriant sylvan-gardens areturned into a bloody arena. W...
A BATCH OF LETTERS TO HOMER. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 October 1886
A BATCH OF LETTERS TO HOMER. BEING SUN-DRIED SCRAPS STOLEN BV MERCURY FROM CHARON'S BOAT, AND DROPPED BY THE FORMER LIGHT-FINGERED DEITY, WHILE TRYING TO DETACH HIS ANKLE WING FROM THE TANGLE OF TELEGRAPH WIRES ON TOP OF OUR COLLEGE. To HOMER, POET OF THE GREEKS. Old Man : As lam now engaged in reading some of your books, I take the liberty of writing to you concerning your works, and of giving you some good advice in regard to them. I also take this opportunity of testifying my regard for your merit, as I, being a poet myself, always desire to give encouragement to writers of good poetry. Thou art, indeed, sweetmouthed. and words roll from thy lips sweeter than honey, and words also that, if spoken in these days, would cause thy auditors much wonderment by their length and awful sound. Thy writings show that thou hast mastered that language terrible to all collegians, Greek. It was to your misfortune that you were born a Greek, and so could not enjoy the advantages which we modern ...
THE NOSE IN LITERATURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 October 1886
THE NOSE IN LITERATURE. The nose, according to a recent discovery, occupies in the different humorous literatures of the world more space' than all the other features ol the "human face divine." It holds in certain physiognomies such an important position that there is little matter for surprise when it is made the pretext for a thousand and one more or less witty remarks. One author has taken it for the subject of a long paper entitled "The Pleasures of the Nose." He treats of the pleasure we feel in scenting the perfume of flowers, of essences, of toilet waters and of spices. Whether in the garden, he says, or at the seaside or in the kitchen or at table, we are made ten times happier by possessing a nose than we would be were we deprived of that precious organ. The red nose of all other noses is particularly dear to wits and poets. Everyone recalls FalstafPs apostrophe to Bardolph's nasal appendage. "Thou art our admiral thou bearest the lantern in the poop but 'tis in the nose o...
THE WANING OF THE YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 October 1886
THE WANING OF THE YEAR. . . . . E'er decay's effacing fingers, Have swept the lives where beauty lingers. Nature never shows more fair than at that season when she begins to lose her prime. Then the air is filled with sweet whiff's from meadow and woodland, and the Old Year becomes nearer and dearer to us, from the fact that we soon shall lose it. The wind loudly laments his old companion's coming departure, and, as it were, in his anger roughly hustles the forlorn and withered leaves hither and thither without a moment's rest. Trees, not long ago standing proudly in their colored raiment, now, ia rags and tatters, implore our sympathy with outstretched arms. In the meadows the ground is being robbed of its brilliant Summer dress by the singing reapers. Cattle feed quietly in the pastures and do not move about restlessly as in the Spring ; while lambs, which five months before stood still with wonder to find themselves upon the earth, and which, having soon found the use of their le...

THE LESSON OF THE NEW YEAR BELLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1886
THE LESSON OF THE NEW YEAR BELLS. Loud brazen tongues toll out a knell; The clock now strikes the midnight hour, And echoes, flung from lordly tower To lowly hut, prolong the swell. One moment more, and while we list, To all the hushed, expectant earth, The frosty metal clangs a birth, From steeples, folded in the mist. Oh ! that we might this morn awake From our past sleep, with gathered strength, And from our weakness rouse at length With mighty thews prepared to break The chains that keep us always down; And in our new born selves eschew The gross and false, assume the true; Awake and press to win our crown. R.J. M.,’87.
“A COLLEGE FETICH” VINDICATED. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1886
“A COLLEGE FETICH ” VINDICATED. Some years ago, a prominent graduate of Harvard College declared openly that the study of Greek and Latin was a blind reverence for'something that deserved to be stamped out, and was fast becoming effete. His outspoken sentiments attracted considerable attention at the time, and were received with no little disfavor. In striking contrast to his position, is that of another alumnus of Harvard, one better able to pronounce judgment in the matter in every way. It is interesting for those who maintain that Latin and Greek should still hold in the college course that place which has ever been theirs, to note that one of the foremost men of our time, in culture and learning, has taken an earnest stand in their favor. The speech in which he assumes this position derives additional interest from the place where it was delivered, and from the celebration which was the occasion of its delivery. The two hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the founding of Harvard...
THE NEW SNOW BLIND. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1886
THE NEW SNOW BLIND. It was snowing when I alighted from the train at the little village of Standstill. I think I must have been asleep during the journey, for I had not noticed the storm which now burst upon me, flinging feathery flakes about me, and rendering my eye-glasses worse than useless. The cold crystals collected upon my coat collar, looking like fine sheep’s wool; but oh ! how cold ! I had no overshoes, and my moistened stockings soon reminded me of that dread malady which I had contracted in childhood, namely, rheumatism. I resolved not to walk, and gazed about me to find a carriage. Great Scot! Who is this approaching? Surely enough, that is the form of Andy, the hackman, whom I knew quite well when a boy, and who often gave me a free ride when I was a tot in the streets of Standstill. But his face ! Why, it is as black as ink ! I had heard of colored people turning white, and had, indeed, visited a dime museum a week or two before,in which such a marvel was on exhibitio...

LIKE A RIVER THAT SINKS IN THE SAND. Scene, College Hall. B. C. Alumni discovered in various groups and posing in diverse classical thoughtful , elegant, and a?igular attitudes. The meeting has just adjourned. Judge Hardvoorker. You can’t call me a graybeard yet, boys, nor is it quite half a century since I, sub eoden rege , with many here present, first broke the soil that afterwards yielded the fruits of graduation. You remember how I tagged with the nimblest of you in the gymnasium of this very building. But in my generation I have seen many a comrade sink down at my side, and if I may borrow a few sentences from the oration you heard to-night, I, too, have watched many a high career descending to ambitionless mediocrity, many a bright mind becoming obscure in the very fullness of its splendor, and many a heart growing sick with hopes that were barren. I have stood over many a grave on whose stone I wanted to cut these words : Like a River that Sinks in the Sand. Doctor Sanguine....
NOT ALL FORGOT. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1886
NOT ALL FORGOT. The snow fell, the winds blew Drifts ever higher, And night came, the storm grew Wilder, more dire. &gt; The white streets, the bright lights, Gleamed in the dark, And trees swayed on drear heights, In common and park. A child cried, shivered there, There mid the storm, The world passed nor gazed where That frozen form With blanched face, and wild eyes, Stood still, alone; Nor breath came, nor deep sighs,— His soul had flown. It soared up, it fled far, But ere its’ flight, There gleamed forth a bright star Of wondrous light. The star changed, and lo! see The Child divine; With sweet voice, soft spake He, “ Come, thou art mine. In me rest, my poor son, Thy griefs are o'er, To me fly, a crown is won Forevermore.” They bore up the child’s soul, Up to the skies, Where anthems to God roll In Paradise. E. P. O’Hara, ’B9.
