Current Topics. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 October 1879
Current Topics. T AST Spring, we announced in our Prospectus, that the Board of Editors had resolved to make various alterations, improvements we hoped, in THE SPECTATOR, and in presenting this opening number before our college public, we sincerely trust that they will appreciate our endeavors. This approval can easily be shown, and we hope that our subscription lists will show it. We will make no long avowal of our views, but will content ourselves by repeating our motto, " Independent, but not Neutral." One thing we desire, however, to state to the students. In January we will have to elect at least five new editors —one from the Law School and the remainder from the Academic Department and School of Mines. The only way we can judge of the qualifications of our class-mates is from the articles or letters they send us for publication. We request that all who desire a place on the Board will commence work at once, as we keep a strict record of all outside contributors, that we may b...
Good Fortune. TRANSLATED FROM THE GERMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 October 1879
Good Fortune. TRANSLATED FROM THE GERMAN. GOOD fortune is a fleeting thing, And it has been so ever ; Chase it around the earth's wide ring, And you may gain it never. Rather upon the sweet grass lie, Singing a merry measure ; Suddenly, from a smiling sky May fall the wished-for treasure. Seize it at once, and hold it fast, Not for a vain word staying, Or it will take its flight at last, To punish your delaying. C. H. C.
The End of Vacation. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 October 1879
The End of Vacation. FAREWELL to the rivers, the sea, and the mountains, The stately old forest, the flowery plain ; Farewell to the streams and the health-giving fountains, Farewell not the hope we shall see them again. Farewell to the friends we have made on our travels, Our talks and adventures together are o'er, But still as our destiny slowly unravels, Perhaps we shall meet them and greet them once more. We have rocked on the waves, we have plunged in the billows, We have sauntered by moonlight, and clambered by day ; We have lounged by the stream under sheltering willows. While the warm, lazy hours passed swiftly away. We know that the winter holds stores of enjoyment For all of us jubilant rovers, and yet — However congenial may be our employment, From the bright realm of summer we part with regret.
A Mixed Essay. TO A CERTAIN YOUNG MAN UNCERTAIN WHAT COURSE TO PURSUE IN COLLEGE. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 October 1879
A Mixed Essay. TO A CERTAIN YOUNG MAN UNCERTAIN WHAT COURSE TO PURSUE IN COLLEGE. AVE you difficulty in keeping small change about you? You are, then, best adapted for a scientific course. Everything impractical now-a-days is set down for Science. Are you gifted in Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics ? the academic is the only one in that case. These studies form the greater part of its routine, although some of the more practical members may take Greek, if they elect , in senior year. And just here a careful distinction and definition of the two great branches may not prove amiss. The term axtou c, from which we derive the word skience (in more proper spelling), means left-handed, and was originally applied to jugglers, card-stackers, and operators in the black arts. Afterwards it acquired the meaning sharpness, subtlity ; but, primarily, the only true science is that of self-defence, which so largely employs the left arm. In later years the term Science is so mixed up in meaning that ...
The Conditioned Sophomore. An Epic. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 October 1879
The Conditioned Sophomore. An Epic. CANTO I. A MUCH conditioned sophomore Sat grinding in his room, No joy found home with his mind, All given up to gloom ; His brows were knit in anguish keen, As cursed he Napier's " Bones," (A wretch who, by Analogy, For misspent life atones.) CANTO 11. While struggling hard with sines and side, (Nor mention we his Greek) In thought, a whispered voice he heard, Which thus to him did speak : " Arise, arise, and make resolve, When once this struggle's o'er, To slope but little, if at all, And come to lectures more." CANTO 111. No cramming in the future use, Ponies in Greek abjure, Then, when "Place Table" sounds, not flunks, But maxes I'll insure. Bethink yourself of all you miss This glorious boating time, Restudying grim formulae Of Small and Large A'. CANTO IV. As Constantine a cross did see, Which spurred him on to win— Consider thou this voice a sign, And life's work now begin. No cribbing in the future try, As cribbed was in the past — Then th...
Some False Charges Answered. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 October 1879
Some False Charges Answered. T T may not be amiss at this time to say a few words on a subject which deeply concerns every member of Columbia College. I find that an impression has gone abroad and is current in many places that entrance to Columbia College is easy, and, having entered, it is not difficult to remain there. And in either case if fair means fail, men resort to foul practices to accomplish their desires. Also, that cribbing —pardon my language —is not only prevalent but is tolerated both by professors and students. The writer, in his travels during the past summer, found that these reports and stories were not confined to one or two localities, but generally existing throughout New England and New Jersey. On many occasions, these charges have been repeated to me, and I have been asked if they were true ; consequently, it is with the desire to meet and to answer openly these accusations that the editors of THE SPECTATOR have placed its columns at the disposal of the writ...
A Serenade. Alphonse is discovered under the window of his adored, guitar in hand Time, Midnight. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 October 1879
A Serenade. Alphonse is discovered under the window of his adored, guitar in hand Time, Midnight. I FAIN would woo thee, love, to-night, — (By Jove, how these mosquitoes bite !) When sleeping nature, by the moon's pale ray (Confound those frogs ! she can't hear what I say.) Is softened, and the little elves in fairy ring—(Thunder ! there goes another string.) Gleeful ; chant praises on thy beauty rare — (A bug or something's got into my hair !) % At last she comes, and opens wide her lattice, " What's that ? She wonders where that cat is ! She can't refer to me ; its just her fun ! And yet, do I behold the old man with a gun ? Farewell, dear little heart, I think I'll run ! "
Resumé of the Year's Boating at Columbia. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 October 1879
Resumé of the Year's Boating at Columbia. ' | A HE victory of our Four at Lake George last July was a most satisfactory termination of a rather unfortunate season of aquatics for us. The beginning of the year found us with prospects none of the brightest. Our old Four disbanded —our coffers somewhat depleted, and only one man in college with any real experience in important contests. Such was the condition of affairs when the term began. At the first meeting of the Boat Club, Mr. Chas. Eldredge, '79, was chosen Captain, and he at once set earnestly to work to obtain fitting substitutes for the seasoned veterans who had left college and the crew. This was no easy task, but there was plenty of enthusiasm among the new men, and the captain soon had fifteen or twenty candidates at work in the gymnasium. The freshmen had accepted a challenge from Flarvard to row a class race in eights, and really worked hard for about two months, but one after another withdrew, or was withdrawn, until at...
Rules and Regulations for '83. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 October 1879
Rules and Regulations for '83. the benefit of those members of the freshman class who are unacquainted with the rules and regulations pertaining to said class, we take pleasure in producing them here. 1. On matriculating, each student will be presented by the secretary with ponies of the classics used during the term, bound in Russia, and as to size and translation especially adapted to Harper's texts. 2. Each freshman will receive the best seat in the recitation rooms and be head of the class, and should the Rutgers girls march up the avenue, the janitor will hand each member of the class desiring it, an opera-glass and a cambric handkerchief. 3. Any sophomore meeting a freshman will be required to doff his hat and knock his head three times 011 the floor. Should he refuse, upon his conduct being reported to -the President, he will be immediately led out to the campus and blown up by a process lately invented by Prof. Chandler. For examination : 1. The seats are so arranged that it...

About College. P IGHTY-THREE is the fourth consecutive class that can boast of being the largest class on record. THE Harlem regatta will take place on October 9th. We will probably be represented in the fours only. ■ FORTY cents apiece will be paid for Vol. 1., No. I (July, 1877), of THE COLUMBIA SPECTATOR. Apply at the office of the paper. IT is requested that all members of the Mines and College, who play cricket, will leave their names at THE SPECTATOR office. HENLEY, one summer ; the best time on record, with Cornell astern, the next. What shall we work for in 1880 ? NINE hundred and fifty dollars, in prizes, are open for competition to members of Eighty-one alone. A NEW J. K. E. catalogue is in press and will shortly appear. The former issue has been carefully revised and brought down to date. THE college races at Saratoga last July, under the auspices of the N. A. A. 0., resulted in two walk-overs and no entries for the eights. DROPPED ! RATTLE his Bohns Over the stones ! He'...
School of Mines. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 October 1879
School of Mines. ENTLEMEN will please step up to the captain's office and settle. WALTER HILDRETH, '77, has again distinguished himself by saving a life at Long Branch. A FEW more buildings of the coal-house type and our " campus," will fairly imitate an over grown mushroom patch. A SET of excellent blue print photographs, by A. G. Hull, 'B2, is a recent addition to Dr. Chandler's museum. THE Popular Science Monthly , for July, contained an article by Prof. Newberry on "The Geological Survey of the Fortieth Parallel." " MODERN Chromatics, with Applications to Art and Industry," by Prof. Rood, is one of the recent additions to the International Science Series.

IN MEMORIAM [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 October 1879
IN MEMORIAM /AN Wednesday, the 18th of June, died FredA. Cairns, one of the oldest and most respected instructors of the School. The immediate cause was a stroke of apoplexy, which he suffered the day before his death. On that day, Tuesday, he had been at the School of Mines, and had left there late in the afternoon, complaining of a severe headache, but otherwise in his usual good health. He spent the evening in writing till half-past eleven, when the attack came on him as he sat. He was engaged at the time upon a " Manual of Quantitative Analysis," which was designed as a guide for the students of the third and fourth years. The book was nearly finished, and will be completed and published by Doctor Waller during the coming winter. Mr. Cairns passed his early youth in this city, graduating at Columbia College in the class of 1839. He subsequently studied law, and was admitted to the bar in Georgia. He spent many years in that State and others of the South, partly engaged in the pu...
School of Law. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 October 1879
School of Law. r J 'HE Law School will open this fall with promise of even greater success than has attended its previous sessions. The addition to the faculty of Judge Dillon, as Professor of Real Estate and Equity Jurisprudence, and Lecturer on Federal Law and Practice, has already been noticed in these columns, and, had it not been, the prominence that has been accorded the subject by the public press would render any comments we might offer, superfluous. That this addition is not, even thus early, without practical effects, is evinced by the unusually large number of applications from the West, for information as to admission to the school. Applicants from other sections of the country have also been very numerous, and one letter of inquiry comes from Alaska. No alteration in the course of study has been decided upon as yet, and the probability is that none will be made. The library has received large and important additions, and many of the old books have been rebound, so that ...
