Untitled [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1883
Before the STYLUS makes its appearance again, the final examinations and the prize contests will be things of the past. Regarding the examinations, we feel sure that every man will do his best to pass creditably at least, and many of course, will strive to gain class honors ; but we desire to say a few words about the prize contests. Most of these, every student has. and always had the right to enter ; but, in past years, some have been kept away by the notion that it is dishonorable to evince any anxiety to secure a college prize. Such a feeling as this can only be the result of thoughtlessness. Men do not enter these contests for the sake of the purse or the medal which is offered, but in order to reap the beneficial results accruing from a careful course of mental training. And when the great benefits derived from the preparation for one of these contests, and the honor attaching to the successful competitors are taken into consideration, it seems strange indeed that the number o...
EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1883
EXCHANGES. Owing to a want of space, in this issue, we are prevented from noticing our exchanges at as great length as we would desire. The Soule College Courant . we are happy to notice, has cast off its primal garb and comes before us blushing in the consciousness of its beauty. Its reception of the STYLUS was all we coidd have hoped for. The Sentinel commands our admiration and our thanks. The beauty of its appearance is no whit more noticeable than the excellence of its matter. We are confident of its success. We owe some gratitude to the College Message for its cordial reception of the STYLUS. We think, however, it displays too much confidence in regard to certain kk truculent" exchange editors. Would it not conduce to the good looks of the Niagara O O Index if its "ads" were quietly relegated to the rear? We think the April number of our respected contemporary has too much of the roar of the neighboring cataract in its columns. Some of the prose articles in the Scholastic this...
GLASS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1883
GLASS. It is almost a popular fallacy, now-a-days, that nothing is good which does not smack ot the antique and mustv. Witness the mania for mummies, odds and ends of pictures, whose only reasonable claim to worth is the accumulated dust of ages, and foi the swoids, or toothpicks of Julius CJassar, which are the masterpieces of some ingenious, but irreverent Yankee. But \\ hethei 01 not age is any criterion of merit, many things, useful and highly valued, date their origin to times almost immemorial. The subject of this paper is of this number; and its history must have a delightful charm for those who love to dwell in the atmosphere of the Roman Empire. In srqDport of our statement, the following words of Tacitus may be taken : " Sand found at the mouth of the River Belus, when mixed with nitre and melted by fire, produced glass." Other material proof of the strongest kind is furnished by a necklace bead which was found at I hebes ; for it bears an inscription which determines conc...
ARTIFICIAL PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1883
ARTIFICIAL PEOPLE. It is astonishing how little we see of the people with whom we daily come in contact. The streets, the public conveyances and the places of amusement of this great city, are every day thronged with thousands of human beings. We meet them morning, noon and night; they are the most interesting features of our afternoon walk, and even in the theatre they are scarcely less attractive than the performance itself. And yet. the majority of these people are not what they seem ; they are artificial, not only in personal appearance, but also in their every movement. Too frequently is the gait, the inflection of the voice, the elevation of the eyebrow, the peculiar emphasis and the sweet smile, all unnatural. Lately reading how a certain New York actor, who really resembles Mr. De Witt Talmage about as closely as a porpoise resembles a giraffe, was able, by the use of hair, paste, powder, paint, glue and other such deluding materials, to so closely imitate the appearance of ...
WAIFS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 May 1883
WAIFS. A MODERN NOVEL. 1 he meeting between Richard and Eva was curiously and agreeably effected with 110 outward demonstration of surprise or joy on either side. Airs. Kingsley was delighted, of course, to see her old friend, Air. Whiting. "It is so pleasant, you know," she said, to meet one's friends abroad, especially one's old, old friends." Our hero's first impression was. that three ladies were present, and that two of them were young and pretty : but it was only after having been introduced to the mother and daughter, and then to " our friend, Aliss Eva Fitzgerald," that he. all at once, knew her. For a moment he looked stunned, amazed, pleased, but prudently did not betray the recognition of his old friend, whom it was so pleasant to abroad. For her part, she blushed, smiled, and, like a wise woman, taking her cue from him, she expressed, in nothing more than a perfectly lady-like manner, her delight to see Air. Alorton. Perhaps the delight' was more heartfelt than usual : f...

THE OLD ELM. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 July 1883
THE OLD ELM. Reverend Parent of the Common, Loved and honored by his brothers Stood the grand old Elm majestic Towering over all the others. From the biting wind of winter, From the scorching sun in summer With his widely spreading branches He would shelter every comer. 'Neath that welcome shade at noonday Once I lay and gazed in wonder, Where the topmost boughs invading Seemed to seek the realms of thunder, Lost myself in dreamy fancy; And with foolish brain inventive, Listened to the distant rustlings, Listened with an ear attentive, Longed to learn that sylvan language Sweeter than the rippling waters ; Longed to hear the ancient Elm tree Talking to his sons and daughters. What a wealth of old tradition, Tales of war and Indian fighting, Tales of love and peaceful pastime, More than e'er will be in writing, I might know, had he been willing! But his rustling gave no token, And that wealth of old tradition Must for aye remain unspoken ; For 'twas scarce a month thereafter That the...
THE SONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 July 1883
THE SONG. Of all lyric poems, the most familiar, and perhaps the most loved, is the song. The chief characteristic of every lyric is that the writer reveals himself, and the song is perhaps the best of all methods of expressing the feelings which flow from the soul in a flood of melody. The writer seems afire with a feeling that buffets aside all obstacles to expression, and before he is aware, it betrays the very beatings of his heart. If his thoughts are centred on some dear friend his song will he of love ;if he quaff'old wine with his companions, a drinking song will gush forth ; if amid the din of battle, a song of mighty strifes and brave deeds is uttered ; and should his heart be mirthful, laughter will follow the humorous outbreaks of his muse. All these varieties of song are produced then by the momentary excitement of the mind. In considering this subject it is pleasant to go back to the time of the early Greeks. Within their several restricted limits, the inhabitants of t...

ORDINATION OF B. C. STUDENTS. Nicholas R. Walsh, '76, James F. Talbot,'77, and Charles F. Glennen, '79 were raised to the dignity of the priesthood at the Trinity ordinations, May 19th, at the American College, Rome: Wm. H. O'Connell and John Ford, both of 'Si, were made subdeacons at the same time and place. On the same day, at Troy, N. Y., T. J. Mahoney,'81 was ordained deacon ; J. II. Griffin, '81, and C. A. O'Connor, received minor orders.
ATHLETICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 July 1883
ATHLETICS. Among the many subjects which engross the student's mind the improvement of his physical condition should claim the attention due to it from its vital importance. For it is a fact well attested by every age and every race, that the mens sana can never or seldom exist without the corpus sanum. It has always been found that the nations which paid the greatess attention to the cultivation of the physical powers, have excelled in the productions of genius ; while, on the other hand, those who have neglected their bodily development have degenerated into a race of mental dwarfs. We find, for instance, that Greece, the whole bent of whose genius was directed towards the idealization of the human form, has stood forth, in modern as well as in ancient times, the model and teacher, in literature and art, of all the nations of the earth. Rome, too, while she gave heed to the physical education of her children, was, like Athens, the mistress of the world. But when this desire for th...
THE DEAD SEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 July 1883
THE DEAD SEA. The proudest cities in Judea's land. The fairest that her sons had ever seen. They stood of old; and proudly still might stand, But for the revelry that reigned therein, The presence of a dark and nameless sin That wailed to Heaven, and wailed till Heaven replied, Entombing them in von funeral tide. As still and silent as the dead it hides, That dismal sea no sweeter music knows, Than when the carrion beast, that round it glides, To seek his prey, shrieks out his wild halloes. Vainly upon its breast ihe stormwind blows ; Its depths no crested billows ruffle o'er, Nor ceaseless surges beat upon its shroe. Here is the home of Death. Xor fish is known To revel in its stagnant depths of woe, Nor bird beyond its wastes hath ever flown, And on its banks, no verdant meadows blow, Though fruits there be that fair as Nature grow To view; but as a beauteous gilded crust, To tempt the tongue, within are filled with dust. Yea, all that land, and sea, and all the air Above, eternal...
A VAGRANT STRANGER. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 July 1883
A VAGRANT STRANGER. The first fly of the season is a free and easy vagabond ; that bashful reserve which sits so gracefully on a stranger, and so commends him to your notice, is not a virtue cultivated by this brazen-faced nomad. This fact was brought forciblv to my mind on one of the first bright sunshiny days of last May. I was sitting at my desk writing a letter to a friend, arid as the weather was warm. I opened rav window. Scarcely had I done so when I observed a small speck in the distance rapidly approaching, and a moment afterward a fly, the pioneer of coming legions, deliberately vet unconcernedly sailed into my room, lie did not stop to ask my permission, made no obeisance, nor showed by any sign that he was aware of 1113- presence ; bid having circumiwigated the room and several times cruised 'across it backwards and forwards, diagonally and irregularly, and by a careful survey of furniture and walls fully convinced himself that things were unchanged since his departure l...
TO SHELLEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 July 1883
TO SHELLEY. I held it a thing of mystery That Heaven should smile on thee, when thou, thereat, With knitted brow, didst scoff" and scornful, spat The venom of the vengeful soul in thee. Yet thou wert not, as heathens anciently, " Unconcious of the Majesty that sat On throne ethereal and there begat Thy soul serenely, surely, patiently, And still men hold, as elder spirits dare, That thou incarnate wast of them who fell From heavenly plains, that time the demon king Rebelled against his Lord. So, through the air, Too gross for Heaven, and vet, to light for hell, Thou goest shrieking, moaning, wandering. M. F. H. '83.
THE VISION OF BETHLEHEM. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 July 1883
THE VISION OF BETHLEHEM. Why was earth so gladsome On that memorial night? Why did it lose its harshness And tremble with defight? Why did men's passions leave them For a time in peaceful bliss, And their hearts grow soft as thev gazed aloft From unbelief's abyss? Let us ask those favored shepherds Who watched in the darksome air Outside the sacred Bethlehem Over the pastures fair; I hear their feM/ent voices, Like notes of love they chime, And they thrill our souls, as the bell that tolls At benediction time. They speak of the glorious vision.— That roused them on that night When they held their midnight vigil, — That bathed the earth in light And gilded the distant heavens, As the Angels sweeping down Entwined with their own bright beings For the earth a living crown. And how, as they hastened downwards, A gem of living fire Shot forth from the crown of spirits Aglow with bright attire : 'Twas an Angel that drew near them. lie bade them not to fear That joy and peace would ever ce...
