ART. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1887

ART. How oft with eyes of reverence we trace The rare effect of some great artist's skill; And feel our hearts with holy pleasure thrill, When standing 'fore a fair Madonna's face. While gazing, comes the thought; though painting grand Doth charm as doth sweet music's lofty strain, Yet all the toil there spent, is spent in vain , And nought that's useful comes from artist hand. But art, true art doth lend a wondrous aid To man in struggling for his highest end, For oftimes has a picture's beauty made A soul its every sigh to Heaven send. And thus hath art a doubly useful charm, It makes our faith grow strong, our love grow warm. CAROLUS. 'BS

THE PEARL OF FAIR ESSEX. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1887

THE PEARL OF FAIR ESSEX. " If," says an author, writing of the beauties of our coasts, " you can imagine a buried Titan, lying along the length of a continent, with one arm stretched out into the sea, the place to which I would transport you, would lie, as it were, in the palm of the giant's hand." Despite all protest in regard to the utter lack of proportion, I crave the privilege of identifying this palmy spot with Nahant, the Pearl of fair Essex the Child of the Sea. So far out into the Bay does this peninsula extend, that the winds and waves, untrammelled by any previous obstruction, let loose upon it all the combined rage and fury of an ocean's fearful wrath. Leaving Lvnn, the mainland, let us take a quiet stroll upon " the Beach ; " a long and narrow isthmus, and the only connection with Nahant. On one side is the vast Atlantic with its seemingly interminable waste of waters ; along the North Shore, and near at hand, are the old, historic towns of Salem and Marblehead ; while ...

THE "CAP'N," A SHROVE-TIDE TALE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1887

THE "CAP'N," A SHROVE-TIDE TALE. The season of the year was shrove-tide, and that was well nigh spent. It was a cold, crisp afternoon, and a light fall of snow covered, as in pity, the barren earth. The little village was all astir, and even the casual observer might see that an event of more than usual importance was at hand. The oldfashioned country tavern, the only one the town could boast, was the Mecca of all the train. The ox-cart, the chaise, and the old brown mares drew up before the door, and their chattering freight stepped out into the long low porch, whence they were ushered into the presence of a new-made bride and her happy father. The good old inn-keeper was the picture of contentment. His large, round, red face fairly beamed, and his stately form swelled with pride, as he glanced at the fair child that stood beside him, and in whose honor the fete was given. At last the guests had all arrived and paid their court to the newly wed. The short dull twilight of this time...

LIMITS OF THE IMAGINATION IN FICTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1887

LIMITS OF THE IMAGINATION IN FICTION. " Imagination makes fools of us all." A truly beneficial recreation is ever in store tor an honest reader, who seeks to relax his tired faculties ou the pleasing flights of that wholesome fiction, whose happy concord of the utile-dulce tends to elevate the mind from the wasting influence of mere pleasure. Works of a serious, philosophical nature, straining the powers of thought to their utmost capacity, when perused with close application will eventually weary the most active mind. Naturally, then, we seek to avoid this strain, and choose to enjoy so often the pleasing and instructing fancies of lighter literature. The transition from the state of weariness to blissful repose is magical. The weighty brood of cares by which the mind is oppressed speeds quickly away, and swift through the varied fortunes of the hero rushes the reader, ever admiring the sterling qualities of heroism displayed in trial and encounter; hoping, loving, fearing for him,...

THE ALUMNI BANQUET. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1887

THE ALUMNI BANQUET. From our Reverend Rector's own words we learn that his generous reception of the Alumni Association on the evening of the Feast of the Purification, was most amply rewarded by their very cordial and grateful attendance. Out of doors the night was a wild one, but filial love for Alma Mater and ties of college friendship, proved stronger than the elements, and early that evening about sixty of our graduates sat down to a bountiful and elegantly catered repast in the lecture hall of the College. A brief business meeting had been held just before the supper, and, all serious matter aside, there was nothing to interrupt the most cheerful interchange of the olden memories, present experiences, and future hopes and aspirations, which furnish the staple of conversation in all alumni gatherings. After the supper the Reverend Rector rose to give a modest expression of the feelings which had prompted him to entertain so worthy a company, and after pointing out to them the b...

A LITERARY PILOT. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1887

A LITERARY PILOT. In these days of promiscuous writing, when'' Scribimus indocti doctique poemata passim" , it is a rare treat for us to be able to turn to a pilot who will faithfully guide us through the shoals, the more dangerous since they are often deeply hidden, with which the present sea of literature abounds. It is as bard for us to find a guide who has the taste requisite for this duty as it is now to find an honest and learned critic. When a writer is found to have this gift he is generally sure to obtain the appreciation which he deserves. Few writers exhibit this good critical taste in a more marked degree than Mr. M. F. Egan shows in his " Chat Aboat New Books" in the Catholic World. These articles are a distinctive feature of this magazine, and have, no doubt, contributed much to gain for it its present popularity. The writer puts his criticisms in an easy, conversational style, which enhances their interest, while detracting in no way from their merit. Those who find i...

THE NOON OF NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1887

THE NOON OF NIGHT. ] Clang; from out yon high and darksome tower The sound strikes forth upon the night, It s echoes roll and roll away ; It s murmurs round the belfry play A moment only and take flight. 2 Clang; and now it is a solemn sound, It s brazen throbbings clear and loud Are blent in grand tumultuous strain, And reach a never-ending chain Of pealings to the scurrying cloud. 3 Clang; and let its memory-waking peal, Ere yet the tremblings vanish far, Renew old friendships dear and true, And chafed hearts make firm and new, As near as star is unto star. I 4 Clang; and now its slow reverberations Haste echoing down night's sable wing, And bring new life to wearied men, New hopes, new visions and again A firm resolve to better things. 5 Clang; along the sable edge of night, The far-off silvery murmurs roll In tuneful cadence, sweet and long, As if they were undying song, The joy of some undying soul. 6 Clang; and let it s brooding notes of peace, Foretell a brighter, happier tim...

EDITORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1887

EDITORIAL. In its infant clays, when the reverend founders of the College watched over its slightest breath with a care as jealous, and a solicitude as tender as a mother's, it gave unmistakable signs of being an active centre of wide spreading and beneficent influence. So that in the beginning there was not for a moment any doubt, that pressing ever onward with its high principles and noble aims, it would fight its own way amid the encompassing host of older and larger institutions, until, of its own intrinsic merits, it should win a place in education's van. The College grew apace in the seventies, and is now entering upon a manhood as vigorous as it will be longeval. Does any one question this? He should have been present at the Alumni dinner, Feb. 2, and there witness an assembly as talented and as distinguished as ever College, young as ours, produced ; an assembly on which were stamped the unfailing marks of College training. The heart of Alma Mater filled with fond pride as s...

LATIN DEBATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1887

LATIN DEBATES. Mr. Editor: DEAR SIR : Through the columns of your paper, I wish to express my appreciation of the disinterested efforts which the reverend professor of Rhetoric is making to secure for his class, facility in the use of the Latin tongue. The custom he has instituted •of Latin extempore debates must commend itself to every one. By the practice in speaking which these debates afford, one gradually acquires ease and readiness in expressing his ideas in the noble language of the Romans ; timid at first, and fearful lest by his ludicrous attempts, he may excite the laughter of his class-mates, who, although not able to pour forth their thoughts in an uninterrupted stream, yet have had their eai'S attuned to euphon}-, the aspirant to elegant Latinitv gains confi dence at each debate, until soon he is able to express himself very tolerably in the language of Cicero and Hortensius. In addition to the fluency obtained by constant practice, there ai - e many other benefits to b...

ATHLETICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1887

ATHLETICS. To the Editor: As the February edition of THE STYLUS affords the most -favorable opportunity for a letter on " Athletics," I have deemed it advisable to take a survey of the field. The first and most natural question that arises concerns the ball team. Have we one? Of last year's team but six competent and reliable men remain : Sheehan, Callanan, McCarty, McLaughlin, Hooper, and Falvey. I can assuredly say that Kelleher, 'B6, would not at all object to lending us a helping hand, if a difficulty arises in finding good players. Among these gentlemen, whom I have enumerated, there is one good pitcher who, with a little development, would, undoubtedly, become a compeer to any of our former twirlers. I have reference to Hooper. Let Holy Cross College vouch for his pitching abilities. But let us not suppose for an instant that the mere obtainment of the men covers all the demands. Far from it. That is but one of the essentialities. There must be incessant practice in batting es...

PERSONALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1887

PERSONALS. As we had gone to press too early last December to give to our readers the names of our Alumni who shortly before Christmas received Holy Orders, we gladly present the list in this issue.

DOMI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1887

DOMI. The STYLUS congratulates Cotter and O'Brien on their promotions into ist Grammar and 2nd Grammar, respectively. Edmund Shanahan has done quite a neat piece of work in arranging his list of the Sodality. It presents a very attractive appearance, pleasing alike to the close and to the casual observer, and looking, as someone lately remarked, "as pretty asa pictui-e." The nine o'clock Mass on the Feast of the Purification wasattended by the students in a body. One of the enjoyablefeatures of the Mass was the singing by the St. CeciliaCChoirr r which was exceptionally good ; " By Babylon's Wave," particularly, was very finely rendered. Here is a passable. "My dear son, how did you fare in the examination? Have you done as well as during the term?"' Hopeful scholar. "Yes mother, 1 had one hundred in conduct, and the same for attendance ; those fifties, forties and thirties are just to fill up the report." Finale : Maternal caressing.

THE BOSTON COLLEGE Y. M. C. A. NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1887

THE BOSTON COLLEGE Y. M. C. A. NOTES. There is, perhaps, no man better acquainted with the histoiy of our navy during the civil war than ex-governor Rice. His position on the naval commission enabled him to procure information, which was unattainable to those outside. Although he was suffering from a heavy cold, when he lectured on " Our Early Navy," he still expressed himself in a very entertaining and pleasant manner. Those who attended the fifth lecture of the course were treated to a fine description of the Battle of Antietam, by George H. Patch, ex-commander G. A. R. The lecturer was a private in that battle, and both from personal observation and study was well acquainted with the history of that engagement. After this, lie gave a very laughable narrative of his enforced sojourn in Libby prison. The double quartette of the Association made its debut 011 this occasion, and rendered a number of war songs with thrilling effect. The last lecture of the course was delivered by the ...

SEBASTIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1887

SEBASTIAN. OUR HOLIDAY PLAY. It was our good fortune to be in the College Hall on the night this drama was presented, and we feel no hesitation in saying that no sublimer effort, no more unmistakable success ic in the brilliant historv of the Boston Colleere sta°re. We base our judgment of the rendering of " Sebastian," on the evidence we had that there were present al! those features, details, and circumstances that must go to make up the successful acting of any drama. A well-chosen cast, judicious interpretation of the spirit of the piece, elocution at once natural and exquisite, a wealth of accurate scenery, costumes historically classical and elegant, all these, combined with the morale of the play, have left it shining the fairest among the jewels in our proscenium. Rarely has it been our lot to sit among an audience that seemed so absorbed by all that was being presented to them. This is all the more remarkable, and, at the same time, flattering to the manager, Mr. T. Barrett...

BOOK NOTICES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1887

BOOK NOTICES. POPE LEO XIII; His LIFE AND LETTERS. By Rev. James F. Talbot, D. D. Boston : Martin Garrison & Co. The reading of this book carries with it a peculiar pleasure, not only on account of the subject treated, but also because this is the first work of an alumnus to come to our attention. Such a book as this should be read by all who desire to have a true knowledge and understanding of the present Pope and his works. The compiler has given in full the principal encyclicals of the Holy Father, and such of the others as are of especial interest to American readers. Everyone who reads these letters must be struck with the profound wisdom and pietv which characterize them all, and which makes Leo XIII a worthy continuator of the unbroken line of Roman Pontiffs. The author has done a good work by thus bringing him more closely to the minds and hearts of his people. The book has some excellent engravings, and an appendix which contains * much useful and instructive in...

PERIODICALS. THE AMERICAN CATHOLIC QUARTERLY REVIEW. The contents ot the last number of the Review offer an intellectual treat to those who desire reading of a high character. The articles are of a varied nature, and their tone shows the deep thought, for which this magazine is especially noticeable. A learned paper is contributed by Rev. J. Ming, S. J., on '•'Science and Speculative Philosophy." A well-written review on "Mr. Mallock on the Labor and Social Movements" is furnished by Mr. John MacCarthy, who gives some sound reasoning on a much abused subject. Mr. J. 11. Atteridge presents a scholarly research on " Some Pagan Theories of Revelation.' Two articles, "Pope Clement VIII and Beatrice Cenci" by Rev. Dr. Parsons, and " Don Carlos and Isabelle de Valois" by Hon. Charles Gayarr6, refute in an able manner, two falsehoods sometimes heard. One will peruse with interest the article "Surnames and their Mutations," by Bishop Hecker. Mr. T. P. O'Connor, M. P., gives much valuable in...
