TO ARISTIUS FUSCUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1887

TO ARISTIUS FUSCUS. HORACE, BOOK 1., ODE XXII. Whose life is clean, whose heart is pure, Needs not the quiver, dart or bow Or venomed shaft of treacherous Moor; The just man, Fuscus-, has no foe. One roams through Syrtes' boiling sands, One climbs Caucasia's friendless height, One treads the fancy-haunted lands Hydaspes laps, without affright. As pure as they, one day, I strolled Through a Sabine forest, free from care; And thinking of my love, I trolled A song to Lalage, the fair. Beyond the boundary of the wood, Lonely, and not alone, I strayed; When 10, there in my pathway stood A wolf; he looked, then fled afraid, — Afraid of me, my Fuscus dear, Your friend, your Horace, all unarmed. The good, you see, need never fear; Where'er they go, they go unharmed. Bold Daunia's acorns never fed, And Juba's realms, the parched nurse Of lions, never surely bre(i This monster's like, the bad man's curse. There is where stretch the sterile plains, Where summer breezes never woo The trees to b...

THE SIMILE IN HOMER. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1887

THE SIMILE IN HOMER. However difficult the study of Homer may be at first, yet the beauties unfolded before our eyes as we advance, the flying pictures which his fancy caught and imprisoned in the framework of a single word ; the words themselves that roll along in melody unmatched since his death-day ; the everchanging panorama of fair scenery ; the glorious fights that charmed the very gods from Olympus' Mount; the greathearted heroes that vied with them in might; the vaunting parleyings in the assemblies ; these and small wonder have made our bard the interesting and attractive study, I had almost said idol, he is to every scholar who approaches him with reverence, and honestly strives to make his author his friend ; and such a one will receive as a just reward the heirship to the grandeur of the old world's thoughts, and to the nobility of its high ideals. During the first few days or weeks of our study of Homer, our imagination conjures up a huge and apparently insuperable mist...

Random Bits of Every Day Work. ON GHOSTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1887

Random Bits of Every Day Work. ON GHOSTS. This world of ours has grown cold with scepticism. Men look at everything through the glasses of doubt. The supernatural exists only for the visionary. The age has gone by when, as Tacitus says, " sanctius ac reverentius visum de actis deorum credere quam scire." Gibbon has taught us to sneer, and Voltaire to grin at every occurrence beyond the natural order. Men no longer cross themselves as they pass at the solemn, midnight hour, the silent, shadowy abode of the dead ; but they are not yet able to repress the chill that nature sends creeping down the spinal column at the thought of all the dust there reposing that once had shape, and beauty, and life, and formed the temples of immortal souls. They were as we; our little day O'erspent, and we shall be as they. We banish to the regions of incredulity all spiritual apparitions and agencies. A ghost-story now-a-davs is held up to ridicule, and the favored recipient of an unearthly visit, who i...

OUR AUNT. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1887

OUR AUNT. We were the fortunate possessors of an aunt. She was a rich old maid, and, together with a little yellow dog, lived in a weather-worn house about six miles from our homestead. Twice, and often three times, during the year, would this eccentric aunt visit our farm, and my brother and I would wait in terror for her arrival. Too well we knew her odd fancies, her nervousness, and, above all, her contempt for boys. When the eventful day would come, on which she was to arrive, we used to walk a mile and a quarter to the railroad station, wait for the approach of her train, and then lead the way home. She never asked us to carry her trunk, but would say, "There is my trunk, boys." This hint was so straight from the shoulder, that we had to act on it, and, in consequence, generally carried the above mentioned travelling commodity to and from the depot. Our maiden aunt usually staid at our house about a week or ten days; during which time, we were like dogs with a muzzle on their m...

A TALE OF THE WILLOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1887

A TALE OF THE WILLOW. One day a golden-haired child, who lived where no trees or flowers grew, was gazing wistfully through the open gate of a beautiful park, when the gardner chanced to throw out an armful of dry cuttings. Among them the little girl discovered a tiny bud just starting. "Perhaps it will grow," she whispered to herself; and carrying the little bud home she planted it. Day after day she watched and tended it, and when, bye and bye, another bud had started, she knew that the slip had taken root. Years passed. The lowly home gave place to a pleasant mansion, and the narrow area in which she had planted the bud now widened into a spacious garden, where many a green tree threw its shadow. But for the golden-haired child, now grown into a lovely maiden, the fairest and dearest of them all was the one she had so tenderly nourished. No other tree, she thought, cast such a cool, soft shade ; in no other boughs did the birds sing so sweetly. But while the tree lived and flouri...

CLOELIA, AN EPISODE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1887

CLOELIA, AN EPISODE. VIRI ROMAE. In the year 507 B. C., Rome was attacked by the Etruscans under Lars Porsena. The latter, however, was frightened off by the heroism of Caius Mucius Scaevola. Among the hostages which the Etruscans obtained before retreating was Cloelia, a Roman maiden of ancient lineage and surpassing beauty. Of medium height, light complexioned, and dark eyed, her mouth was one that Raphael would have loved to paint; and her dimpled face, when wreathed in smiles, showed like that of a goddess, to many an aspiring Roman. Her personal charms were nothing compared to the matchless graces of her mind, which she had cultivated in her taste for art and music, and in her love for poetrv. It was her father's delight to see her dressed in the rich and graceful costume of her time, with a rose bud nestling in her hair, or caught in the clasp of her girdle. In truth, she seemed a creature fit to be associated with those "beautiful expressions of God's love and goodness— the f...

SHADOW FIGHTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1887

SHADOW FIGHTING. Everyone engages in this warfare to a greater or less extent, and, though few may meet with the same experiences, all encounter the same enemy. The path of our every day lives is the battle-field ; the conflict rages constantly. These battles began in our childhood, when our troublesome pranks were curtailed by the direst threats of ghosts and goblins that were to emerge, at a moment's notice, from the recesses of some dark closet, and bear us off to unspeakable torture. These threatenings we not only believed, but so magnified in our childish imaginations, that the mildest hint of their fulfilment, was sufficient to reduce our refractory spirits to perfect obedience. But when we grew a little older, and reason routed the hosts of ghosts and goblins, we laughed at our childish credulity, and wondered how we could have permitted ourselves to be so harassed by what proved to be only shadows. In our schooldays, too, we met with the same adversaries ; and though we may ...

THE CLASSICS IN A NIGHTMARE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1887

THE CLASSICS IN A NIGHTMARE. Tom and I were chums. All the fellows thought so, and, of course, we couldn't help knowing it ourselves. We studied together, being room-mates ; and often on winter evenings, after we had prepared the morrow's lessons, did we steal out to secure some farmer's ox-sled and coast down the slippery incline of a neighboring hill. But there was an inevitable circumstance that marred the serenity of our friendship, and this was our difference of opinion as to which of the classic authors, we w T ere then studying, was the best. Tom loved to pour over old Xenophon's prosy and unrhetorical Cyropagdia, and he fairly doted on, actually wept over, the Elegies of the exile Ovid. Well now, I positively frowned on these latter ; perhaps, as was slyly hinted, because I could not translate them as easily as I could Caesar's Commentaries, which I considered, or pretended to regard, as marvels of the purest classic diction, and invaluable models for the memoirs and records...

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

EDITORIAL. Do the friendships formed in College exert their full influence on our Alumni ? We think they do not. On the evening of graduation, the student bids a last adieu to the scenes of his happiest days, gives a last hearty shake of the hand to the men who, for four years, have been to him as brothers, and then, full of hope and eagerness, is oft" on life's highway. Once amidst the surging, pushing throng, he must fight to keep his own place, and has little time to look back at the struggles of others. So it is, that after graduation, one sees his classmates probably twice a year, and then, at the Alumni gatherings. Yet, it is after we have left College that we are in the greatest need of sympathy and encouragement. And who will be truer, warmer, more disinterested friends than they who have sat in the same bench with us, and have been sharers in the same disappointments, and partakers in the same successes? \\ hy, then, should not some measure be taken to preserve and strength...

THE ROMAN STUDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1887

THE ROMAN STUDENT. To the Editor of the Stylus: Under an Italian sky, they say : "The heart leaps high and thoughts flow free." That is well enough in theory ; or when one has never tasted [ the electric atmosphere of New England. In practice, the influence of the '• Italian Star" is, perhaps, to render one rather susceptible to the dolce far niente than to the strainings of honest effort, especially in the way of original literature. Is it any wonder then that the old children of the STYLUS, languishing amid the dead memories of Rome, and hemmed in bv the intractable stretches of the Pontine Marshes, raise their voices in deprecation against the accusation, that they have forgotten their old pride? Let us urge our complaint still further, and appeal to the depressing and all-absorbing exactions of ponderous tomes ; how jealously the eye of the Angelic Doctor, and his multitudinous satellites guard the every motion of a Roman student's thought, to the ineffable distance over which o...

SIC ME NON SERVAVIT APOLLO. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1887

SIC ME NON SERVAVIT APOLLO. Mr. Editor: I belong to a class of individuals, now almost obsolete, but whose fate, whose curse I was going to say, it is, to be subjected to that tribe of our race, which we style the glib, or the oratorically inclined. The majority of my afflicted brotherhood have passed away, but I still remain to suffer. Nay, my lot is the more miserable from the fact that my very existence hinges on the avoidance of loquacity. I perceive the faint shadow of doubt upon your majestic features. Alas ! I speak but the cruel truth, and my mind is in no wise deranged. Doubt not my words, for I am the unfortunate wretch against whose hapless head was launched that direful prognostication of the old Sabine woman, after she had shaken her divining urn : " Hunc neque dira venena, nec hosticus auferet ensis, Nec laterum dolor, aut tussis, nec tarda podagra; Garrulus hunc quando comsumet cunque : loquaces, Si sapiat, vitet, simul atque adoleverit astas."

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

PERSONALS. Edward McLaughlin, '77, was present at the dinner of the Charitable Irish Society, March 17, and responded to the toast, " The day we celebrate." He made a characteristic speech, despite a very laughable interruption, which threatened by the mirth it excited, to render all further delivery impossible. Rev. Chas. B. Glennan, '79, is stationed at Meeting House Hill, Dorchester. His learning has secured for him the respect, and his charming disposition, the affections of the parishioners." Edward F. Burns, 'So, has left his position on the Boston Globe to guide, as editor and manager, the infant steps of the Salem Daily Times. His first editorial, in which he lays down the principles and outlines the policy his paper shall pursue, is as masterly, vigorous, and manly a piece of writing. -as we have read for a long time. If brains, energy, managing ability, and journalistic experience count for anything, the success of the Salem Times is insured beyond a doubt. A few of the ed...

In Memoriam. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1887

In Memoriam. REV. WM. J. QUIRK, ’81. The STYLUS was in press when we received news of the decease of one of our most distinguished Alumni. But availing itself of a chance scrap of space it chronicles wdth regret the untimely death of Rev. W m. J. Quiik, 'Bl, who went to receive the reward of a truly Christian life on'the 2Sth inst. After a brilliant course at the College, Fr. Quirk completed his studies at Grand Seminary, Montreal, where he was ordained in 1884. With characteristic self-denial hp left home and friends and went to serve in the vineyard of the Lord at Concord, N. H. But the hand of sickness was soon laid upon his young and vigorous life, and he was obliged to abandon his priestly duties and return to his home at the Highlands. We extend our heart-felt sympathy to his bereaved relatives, and express our deep sorrow at the loss to the Church of so zealous a son, and to the College of so talented a representative. By the death of Mr. Dennis H. Tully, which occurred on la...

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

DOMI. At the suggestion of Mr. Wynne, S. J., its director, the senior debating society has adopted a new method of select" ing a subject for debate. Formerly much time was unnecessarily consumed at each meeting. The new regime is intended to obviate this waste of time and delay. It proposes to draw up at the beginning of each school year a list of standard subjects for discussion. In the pursuance of this plan the members will be enabled to acquire greater and more valuable information than they did heretofore from the discussion and unravelling of political knots, which has but little tendency to develope one's argumentative powers. From this list alone, the subjects for debate will be chosen, and the students after a brief perusal will be readily enabled to select the most suitable topic for the various meetings. A long felt want of the STYLUS has at last been gratified in the kindly presentation, by Rev. Fr. Rector, of an elaborate bulletin board to the members of the present sta...
