EDITORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1886
EDITORIAL. The Stye us goes to its friends this month under the man- | agement of a new board of editors. Henceforth, the staff will be appointed in September instead of February, and will continue in office until the following July. By this arrangement a great deal of unnecessary delay in issuing the first spring number will be avoided. The new board come on the stage pledged to do what in them lies to maintain the high standard of the paper, and if they succeed in the work they will be justified in saying, as the last issue is sent forth, “ Nunc plaudite.” They have been encouraged to place their hopes high, by the many and warm congratulations that, from all sides, greeted the last number of The Stylus ; while the great demand for copies of the first of this year’s issues, leaves the editors no room to doubt that the same support, which has heretofore been so kindly given to the College paper, will continue to be extended towards it, during* their term of office. But with whateve...
ALUMNI AND PERSONALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1886
ALUMNI AND PERSONALS. A few weeks ago, a party of four, who, on account of their lately acquired editorial dignity, carried their heads one inch higher than the common herd, paid a visit to Brighton. No sooner had they entered the spacious reception room, than they found themselves hemmed in on all sides by graduates of B. C., who were delighted to see somebody from the old place, and eager to hear everything that could be called “ news.” And then such a process of hand-shaking as was gone through with ! And each grasp of the hand was so hearty ! .Such as only those who have warm hearts can give. There were there athletes who had at College been the admiration of their fellows for their prowess on the diamond ; students who had carried off the honors in their classes ; former editors of The Stylus, and men who had many a time called forth applause as they stood before the foot-lights of the College stage. Among those, who had lately entered, were seen the valedictorian of ’B6, J. B....
IN MEMORIAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1886
IN MEMORIAM. REV. P. P. FITZPATRICK , 6'.7. On the 10th instant, Rev. P. P. Fitzpatrick, S. J., in the 49th year of his age went to receive his reward for a life spent in the great Master’s service. He was twice professor at B. C. In the early days of the College, and later, in ’76, he taught Mental Philosophy to the first graduates who went forth from Alma Mater. rev. y. y. fallr Rev. J- J- Lally, ’Bl, died recently atßaltimore, whither he had gone to build up his failing health. His theological studies were begun at Grand Seminary, Montreal, and pursued later on at Brighton. Ordained at Holy Cross Cathedral in ISS4, he spent two years in the faithful discharge of his ministerial duties at Waltham, where, by his unfailing cheerfulness, his piety, and fidelity, he completely won the affections of his parishoners. The Stylus takes this opportunity of expressing its sorrow for the loss to Alma Mater of one of her brightest and most promising sons, and to the church, of a talented and ...
DOMI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1886
DOMI. As the tired and weary traveller on a great plain rejoices when he sees a light shining through the window of a cottage, and knows that at last he will have a chance to rest himself without fear of danger, so does the student, wearied by long labor, behold with delight the approach of the Christmas holidays. Visions of class-reunions, of collations, of entertainments, dance before his eyes and interfere with his studies. Already, the members ot the different classes have commenced to prepare their programmes, and to each member work is assigned. The small boy feels famished when he thinks of the good things in store for that day, and longingly awaits its coming. Even the seniors seem somewhat ruffled, and hurry about making preparations for the great day on which pleasure will reign supreme, and work be a thing of the past. On Tuesday, the second day of the forty hour’s devotion at our church, all the scholars attended solemn high mass in a body. It indeed was edifying to see ...
THE ST. CECILIA CELEBRATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1886
THE ST. CECILIA CELEBRATION. On Monday, Nov. 22d, our musical society celebrated the feast of its patron, St. Cecilia, with an exquisite entertainment. It has been the custom for years past to commemorate appropriately the return of this feast; but the manner in which its occurrence was signalized this year absorbs the lustre of all former efforts. For our entertainment was not of the conventional kind, not the tiresome, harping of age-worn melodies, but it sparkled with originality. In some cases words fitting to the occasion were adapted to familiar airs, while in others, both words and music were rendered “ for the first time.” The St. Cecilia Society has ceased to be a thing of the “ new ” boy. The profound oritund of the sophist’s voice could be heard concordantly blending with the shrill pipings of the Rudimentarian. Their harmony in music but typifies the spirit of unity, which has characterized all the actions of the members this year, and their constant endeavor to advance ...
Y. M. C. A. NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1886
Y. M. C. A. NOTES. It was, indeed, a moment of rare satisfaction to Fr. O’Connor, S.J., when he beheld the immense audience of friends, who had assembled to greet him ; when he learned that even after his long absence, he yet retained so strong a hold on the affections of his former parishioners. Mayor O’Brien introduced the eloquent lecturer in a short but brilliant speech, in which his honor testified his regard for Fr. O’Connor, and the pleasure it gave him to hear his voice again. The orator of the evening responded with his usual wit, and by happily alluding to the chief executive, as the “chestnut (mare) mayor, on whose back Boston is willing to place her safety and her interests for a third term ; ” he brought forth roars of applause. The reverend lecturer treated his subject, “ Education,” from a philosophical, parental, and religious standpoint, and by his sound common sense and rhetorical beauties, held the attention of the audience from the beginning to the end of his dis...
SONNET. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1886
SONNET. The old clock’s silvery chime, the falling sands Tell of an hour just linked to the past. When Phoebus’ car departing, hurries fast, The day is dead. The beauteous crescent stands, And tells a coming month of woe and cheer. These links of time, the month, the day and hour, Form Spring, the bud, and Summer, the fair flower, Autumn, the falling verdure of the year. The Angelus proclaims, with holier chime, Dawn and the twilight hour. The feast days, too, Mark Heavenly seasons; as with Christmas’ snow Comes that fair flower, full ope’d at Easter-time. Earth seasons calendar a passing spell; But Heaven’s signals endless ages tell. Carolus, ’BB.
SOME LATE ABUSES AMONG CRITICS AND EDITORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1886
SOME LATE ABUSES AMONG CRITICS AND EDITORS. The literary development of the present day finds serious impediments which tend to lower or mislead the taste of youth from the old ways of excellence. These faults are alarming, as they occur among members of two of the most potent builders of modern literature, the editors and the critic. The art of criticism was formerly entrusted to men of culture and learning, whose keenness of intellect rendered them capable of discerning an author’s wrong purpose and loose modes of expression. By the exercise of this art they were fully enabled to assist the writer in the correction of his style, and to guide aright the minds of the readers. But in the wider propagation of knowledge, the ranks of these so called judges have increased so enormously that even the penny daily, uttering in the same breath the vilest scandal and the most sublime heroism, now considers the critic of letters and of books as one of the most necessary powers behind the edit...
PAST THE SNOW-LAND TO THE NEW ELYSIUM. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1886
PAST THE SNOW-LAND TO THE NEW ELYSIUM. “Like those Hesperian gardens framed of old, Fortunate fields and groves and flowery vales, Thrice happy isles.” Virgil, as we know, places his Elysium under the earth, and assigns it for a residence to the spirits of the blessed. Homer’s Elysium is on the western part of the earth, and he describes it as a happy land, where “ falls not hail, or rain, or any snow, Nor even wind blows loudly.” Hither, favored heroes pass without dying, and live happy under the Rhadamanthan rule. We, however, claim to have found the real Isles of the Blessed. For in the Arctic region, where the North Pole is firmly rooted, lies the “ Island valley of Avilion, Deep-meadowed, happy, fair with orchard lawns And bowery hollows, crowned with summer sea.” A description of my journey to the “ Fortunate Islands,” will open your eyes, gentle reader, and convince you of the genuineness of my discovery. I was always fond of visiting new scenes, and of observing strange char...
EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1886
EXCHANGES. We would remind our exchanges that The Stylus is a bimonthly, and therefore we cannot be expected to give extended notices of each and every one of the large number of favors that accumulate upon our table between issues. However, we will endeavor to give due credit to the most meritorious, and hope in the course of the scholastic year to find something worthy of mention in each of the many excellent college journals that visit our sanctum. The first exchange to greet our eye is TJie Beacon. Its outward appearance is prepossessing, and the matter presented is on the whole worthy of careful perusal. A feature of this magazine is the large number of editorials. These are of varied interest, and generally speaking, to the point. There is one suggestion made, however, to which we must take exception. Our neighbor says “ Why doesn’t some enterprising newspaper, like the Sunday Globe for instance, tell us what to read and what not to read?” Now with all due respect to the gentl...
BOOK NOTICES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1886
BOOK NOTICES. THE MADONNA OF THE TUBS. By Elizabeth Stuart Phelps. Boston ; Houghton, Mifflin &amp; Co. This is a book full of very pleasant reading. It tells of deep, domestic affection, and brings clearly before the mind of the reader a New England seaside interior. There is apparently a smack of irreverence about the title, and vve question the good taste of the juxtaposition of terms which contrast so glaringly. The story, ca va sans dire, is so exquisitely written, to full of pathos, so interesting in its details, that the surprise which the name of the book affords is not needed to invite the reader's attention. We are in doubt, moreover, as to the relevancy of the title. Barring this incongruity, which startles us on the threshold of the narrative, everything in this small volume makes it a veritable “ thing of beauty.” It has been printed in an elegant manner by the publishers, with profuse illustrations, and these excellencies along with the fact that the story has ...
