BOSTON COLLEGE Y. M. C. A. NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1887
BOSTON COLLEGE Y. M. C. A. NOTES. The muscular members of the Association had an opportunity to show their strength when, on the evening of March 15, the gymnasium class, under Professor Morton, gave an exhibition in the College Hall. Considering the short time the class has been in existence, it did remarkably well, and both professor and pupils deserve great credit for their fine work with the dumb-bells, Indian-clubs, parallel bars, trapeze r and the like. The dramatic committee have decided to produce " A Celebrated Case," early in June, and have already commenced to cast the characters. The committee are desirous of surpassing even the great success of the two former plays, and with this intention will devote more time than usual to rehearsals. The annual retreat of the Association was commenced on March 27th, and was conducted by one of the finest speakers in the Society, Fr. Kenney, S. J. The exercises were unusually well attended, the members responding in large numbers to t...
BASE-BALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1887
BASE-BALL. Our boys played at College Hill with the Tufts College team on the 13th. Though the score was close* the game was rather slow and devoid of interest. As several of the regular team are unable to play on account of sickness, the placing of the men in different positions from their own, necessarily weakens the team, and makes good play a difficult matter. Under the circumstances, however, the boys did well, outfielding and out-batting their opponents, and showing a marked improvement over the playing in the first game. The'few features of the game were the all-round playing of Falvey, our catcher, and the base-running of Ames for the Tufts. The score: TUFTS COLLEGE. AB. R. 18. SB. PO. A. E.

NOTES OF THE GAME. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1887
NOTES OF THE GAME. The boys have started out with a batting streak, and promise to make things warm for opposing pitchers in the games to come. Keep it up, boys, we'll pay for the bats. The base-runners should try to act in accordance with the suggestions of the coachers, and not be recklessly ambitious to reach the home plate. A run was lost in the Lynn game on this account. Falvey's playing in the Tufts game was a revelation to the rest of the nine. The way he stole second would have done credit to Mike Kelly. The boys are all in favor of the new rules, and think the other College teams behind the times in not adopting them. Our game with Technology, scheduled for the 16th, was postponed on account of the rain. We are awaiting with confidence our contests with Holy Cross, and propose to make our rivals play great ball to conquer 11s.
EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1887
EXCHANGES. With the March number of the Amherst Literary Monthly the exceptionally able management of the past year severs its connection with the magazine, and the outgoing board marks the occasion by an excellent valedictory number. "Winter Sights and Sounds" is written by a true student of nature, for though we all may drink of the inexhaustible draughts of loveliness that come to us from the lavish hands of spring, summer, and autumn, it is only he who observes carefully, and holds his ear close to mother earth, who can discern the delicate tintings of the pictures which the colder season presents to our gaze. " The Temporary Professor" is a delightful little sketch, as new in plot as it is entertaining in treatment. "Realism in Modern Fiction" is easily the best article in the number. The ideas and propositions of the modern school of novelists, of which Howells is the acknowledged master, are ably dissected, and their destructive tendencies exposed. Surely our work-a-day age i...
BOOK NOTICES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1887
BOOK NOTICES. ANCIENT CITIES. By Rev. WM. Burnett Wright. Boston : Houghton, Mifflin and Co. Ancient Cities is a book of pleasant and instructive reading. "The individual characteristics of the great cities of the world, from the city of Ur to Suza, the city of the Satraps, are elegantly marked. Each chapter is an indelible photograph of •the city it aims at describing. To our liking, Athens, the city of culture, is the gem of the book. The author makes no pretensions to antique lore ; but the book, as it lies before us, has not been written without considerable meditation, study, and research. We want, or rather, we want many more books of this kind, and we trust that other opportunities and more leisure will be granted, at no distant date, to the gifted author. LIBER AMORIS. By Rev. Bernard Carpenter. Boston, Ticknor and Co. The Liber Amoris or The Book of the Love of Brother Aurelius, by the Rev. Bernard Carpenter, is a narrative poem of no small pretensions, but with very little...

LIGHTS ON THE RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1887
LIGHTS ON THE RIVER. The orb of night with silver beauty rims The fleeting clouds, and soft star lustre dims; O'er mountain peak it showers its mellow beams, And turns to silver gently flowing streams. It smiles to see its radiant features shine From out the rippling mirror of the brine, And deep its light in each dark billow laves, That bears it broken on to fellow-waves : Till thus seems formed upon the trackless sea A golden pathway to eternity. In silent toil the hardy fisher sets Across the ebbing tide his ready nets, And gives the flame to those bright lamps, that burn Upon his seine. And oft to these doth turn His watchful eye, as down the murmuring stream They slowly float. For their clear ruddy gleam Are beacons o'er a track, to which the gaze Of him, who watches where the wavelet plays Upon the banks o'erspread with verdure green, Must run to reach his idly-moving seine. Behold another sight on Ganges tide, Where dreamy shallops at their moorings ride. Two Hindoo maidens o...
THE PLAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1887
THE PLAY. We are indebted to the Boston Daily Advertiser, one of the most literary organs of the Boston Press, for the following graceful and flattering criticism on the Play that marked the opening of the Commencement Exercises of this year. COLLEGE THEATRICALS. ("SEBASTIAN, THE ROMAN MARTYR," PERFORMED AT BOSTON COLLEGE.) The play that was presented last night before the great audience that crowded the hall of Boston College, "Sebastian, the Roman Martyr," was interpreted by the students in a manner so sympathetic and fine as to deserve the highest praise from the critic, who bears in mind the absence of pretention and the necessary limitations of amateur work. The motive of this play is one to elicit the sympathy and arouse the enthusiasm of all who are impressed by the grandeur and the dignity and the unique splendor of those lives of Christian devotion that were lived in the early years of our era when the religion of Christ was despised and rejected of men. The contrast which ...
JUNIORS' NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1887
JUNIORS' NIGHT. Although quite a number were prevented from attending the Junior Commencement Exercises on the evening of June 22, on account of the threatening weather, yet those who were fortunate enough to be present, and indeed the attendance was larger than had been expected, witnessed a performance creditable to all engaged in it. As will be remembered, it was only last year that the custom was introduced by which one evening in commencement week was set apart exclusively for the Juniors. The innovation met with great success at the time, being approved and commended on all sides ; on this account, it was deemed advisable to repeat the experiment, but this time with some changes. Last year the whole programme, with the exception of the music and singing, consisted of declamations ; this year, however, a new departure was made. A large portion of the programme was devoted to the reading of original essays, compositions, etc., by the students upon subjects pertaining to their cl...
'87's NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1887
'87's NIGHT. The absence of dryness in every respect, seems to be one of the fixed customs of Commencement Night. This year violated none of these; for it was down-pour, down-pour, all day, and plenty of rain, a big audience, and a most interesting programme for the evening. There are too many who look eagerly forward to Commencement at Boston College, to be deterred by any churlishness of Jupiter Pluvius. The decorations this year were confined to the stage, which was almost barricaded with flowers and tropical plants, while overhead, and on the sides hung gaily-colored draperies and festoons. At the rear of the stage was stationed the Germania Orchestra, which, during the evening rendered some beautiful pieces in a faultless manner. At eight o'clock, the members of the senior classes marched on to the stage and took their assigned places ; the members of the graduating class occupying the front seats, which were arranged in the form of a semicircle. Soon after the entire college h...

SALUTATORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1887
SALUTATORY. JOHN F. DEGAN. YOUR EXCELLENCY, RESPECTED FACULTY, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN Whenever questions that respond to the most profound needs or aspirations of our nature, begin to be agitated in the world, their power for good or evil varies with the construction we put upon them. Illumined by the splendors of truth, they cannot fail to uplift and advance us along the lines of true progress. On the other hand, it will be scarcely possible to exaggerate the disastrous effects they must produce upon society at large, whenever they are interpreted according to the views of an unsound philosophy. Among these questions, there is one whose popularity has justly entitled it to a foremost place among the topics of public economic interest, and general utility. It is the one social problem of our times, pressing to the front in away which demands not only recognition but settlement; because it is felt to be bound up most intimately with the happiness and the conscience of Mankind. As was t...

LANDED PROPERTY. — ACADEMIC CIRCLE. Discussion. —EDW. A. QUIRK, JOSEPH G. ANDERSON, DENIS J. CROWLEY, JEREMIAH HARTY. Mr. Quirk. GENTLEMEN : According to agreement we are assembled here this evening to discuss a question which underlies many principles of Ethical Science and which is confessedly the most vital question of the day. I mean that of the right of property ; whom dees it not concern? The rich await i'.s solution with anxiety, its agitation has made the masses eager for a speedy settlement. It demands the strictest attention of all, inseparably linked with man's independence, it is of the utmost consequence that it shall not be misunderstood. You are asked therefore to approach it in the temperate spirit and with the fullness of investigation which can alone hope to find the truth you seek. lam sure lam only reflecting your own wishes when I require that the widest freedom of expression be accorded to each disputant within those limits of fair and strict pleading which you...
VALEDICTORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1887
VALEDICTORY. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN : We cannot desire any better proof of your interest in us this evening than the very cou r teous attention you have given to our public circle. Though we selected the theme as likely to prove attractive on account of its prominence among the studies of the day, and as falling naturally within the sphere of our own studies during the year, we cannot but be aware that our crude efforts at its development owe their success —whatever that may be to your kindness and indulgence. In closing the discussion, therefore, while I speak for the class its grateful recognition of your sympathy, I must not myself trespass upon your generous patience ; yet, I cannot withold one suggestion, which seems to me to hold the place of honor in all this debate. To better the people's condition, in the fullest meaning and loftiest purpose of that expression, cannot but meet with the heartiest approbation of every kindly and conscientious man. But what kind of amelioration ...
THE SEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1887
THE SEA. All day my heart, oppressed with grief and care, Had sought for peace and comfort everywhere, At work, at play, till wandering o'er the iand I stood at length upon the ocean's strand, When crimson curtains round the setting sun And falling twilight told that day was done. And, as I mused, the waves from o'er the main Took up my cares, and then rolled back again. Till sorrow gone and grief left far behind, More joyous thoughts usurped mj' ready mind. * * * * * Who can express the feelings of delight, The silent thoughts awakened at the sight, When first the ocean's grandeur meets the ej-e Bound only by the azure-arched sky! We gaze upon the deep, the dark blue sea, We think of heaven, and of eternity, Of power, of strength, and of the endless time With God the Father, Mighty and Sublime. In playful calm, or when about the shore The winds arouse the sad sea's sullen roar, It seems a mirror of the human soul New calm and peaceful, now beyond control. The bright blue waves of e...
