EDITORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1887
EDITORIAL. Hurrah for vacation ! Now is the time when, as a certain philosopher has said, you should "let joy be mistress of your souls." Carpe diem; enjoy the present; let the future take care of itself; get all the fun and happiness you can out of these two months. But if it so happens that any one of you weary of pleasure, desires to engage in some more profitable pursuit, remember the prizes offered by the STYLUS for the best stories handed in before next October. If you are something of a story-teller, or have a very fertile imagination, go to work ; let us see what you can do, and perhaps one of these days, you may find yourself the surprised, but happy recipient of one of the two prizes offered. At any rate try your hand at this, boys, whether you have hopes of winning a prize or not. You will, no doubt, have many leisure moments during these two months ; take advantage of them, so that when this vacation is a thing of the past, you can say that there have been some hours whi...
ALUMNI AND PERSONALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1887
ALUMNI AND PERSONALS. It is our grateful task to record in the closing number of the Stylus, the career of certain gentlemen, old students and graduates of B. C., whose lives, while not possessing the publicity and apparent brilliancy of many of their fellow students, have yet been full of glorious labor and have been marked by the most genuine success. We refer to those of the old boys who have entered the Society of Jesus and are only just emerging from that comparatively hidden life which precedes their elevation to the priesthood. Conspicuous among these, are Rev. Fr. Brett, S. J., at present completing an extended course at the Roman College ; Rev. Fr. Richards, S. J., a very successful teacher of Physics for several years, at Georgetown College; Rev. Michael Hughes, S. J., for the past two vears, one of the officers of Holy Cross College; Fr. Thomas Ganon, S. J., at present engaged in the work of the ministry at St. Mary's in this city ; Fr. Goeding, S. J., who has just finish...
MR. KIDNEY GIVES A DINNER TO THE GRADUATING CLASS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1887
MR. KIDNEY GIVES A DINNER TO THE GRADUATING CLASS. w e are happy to recall a very graceful precedent which we trust Mr. Kidney has established for every liberal-hearted friend of the college with regard to the graduating class. On the same evening that Mr. McCormack was entertaining his old friends, Mr. Kidney was extending similar courtesies to the members of '87. We had not the privilege of being present, but if we may trust the glowing account of those who sat at the genial board, we must regard the evening as one full of the most delightful memories and most enjoyable elements.
DOMI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1887
DOMI. The Reading Contest, which took place about the middle of May, was held in the exhibition hall, in the presence of an audience which was not in any way remarkable for its large numbers, being, in fact, made up of the judges only. It seems to us that it would be a good plan —unless there is some special reason to the contrary for this contest to be made a public one, as is the prize declamation at present. Not only would this change infuse new vigor into the readers upon the night of the contest —for it is very difficult for them to speak to empty benches and do so with any feeling but it would also result in a more careful preparation of the pieces chosen, which is very desirable and very necessary, if we are to judge by the reading at the contest above named. Not that the reading was not a good one ; it was excellent in more respects than one ; but the fact that there are a large number in the college who are really good readers and would be able to give a very creditable exh...
AT THE VENDOME. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1887
AT THE VENDOME. SECOND ANNUAL BANQUET OF OUR ALUMNI. The Alumni Association gathered at the Vendome, on the evening of June 27, for its second annual dinner. Previous to the banquet, a business meeting was held and the following officers were elected for the ensuing year:—President, Dr. Wm. A. Dunn, '77 ; first vice-president, Rev. James F. Talbot, D. D., '7B; second vice-president, Rev. Wm. F. Powers, 'Bl ; secretary, Jas. H. McHugh,'Bo; treasurer, Dr. Wm. G. McDonald, '77; historian, Francis J. Barnes, 'B4. Resolutions of condolence were then passed on the deaths of Revs. Father Lally and Father Quirk who had died during the past year. The merry party here adjourned to the dining hall and settled down to an evening of rare enjoyment. When ample justice had been done to the elaborate repast, the president, Dr. Dunn, called the assembly to order and thanked the Alumni for the honor conferred 011 him by his election as president of the Association. Mr. Edward F. Burns, editor of Sale...
REUNION OF ONE OF THE OLDEST CLASSES OF THE COLLEGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1887
REUNION OF ONE OF THE OLDEST CLASSES OF THE COLLEGE. HELD AT THE RESIDENCE OF MR. MCCORMACK, BROOKLIXE, ON THE EVENING OF JUNE I I . '•An elegant dining room, an elaborate spread, a brilliant company." One could not help making this remark, as he enteredMr. McCormack's residence in Brookline, on the evening of June 11. Old '67 was gathering her children once more under her banner, and on all sides there were smiles, rejoicings and hand shakings. Bearded men, successful in their respective professions and far-advanced on the road to fame, met with all the eagerness of young school-boys to talk over the days when they wore the student's gown, and B. C. was in her teens. As they sat there chatting pleasantly, before the snowy tables that groaned under the weight of delicious viands, one might say that the Nodes Ambrosianae were being realized, and that a coena deorum had been set by a princely host for the joy and delight of his old college companions. The first object of the gathering...
BOSTON COLLEGE Y. M. C. A. NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1887
BOSTON COLLEGE Y. M. C. A. NOTES. We take occasion in the present issue to correct a misstatement made in our last number. It is Dr. John Dowsley who has been appointed a member of the State Dental Commission. The election of the officers for the year 'Sj-'SS took place on Tuesday evening, June 7, in the lower college hall. It was the occasion of the best attended meeting ever held by the Association, and was a gratifying index of the vigorous life and the esprit de corps , largely imparted to the Young Men by the untiring efforts of the outgoing board of officers. The friends of the candidates for the position of vice-president were out in full force, and each party was determined to elect its man, if hard work and conscientious balloting could do it. Messrs. Thomas F. Duffly and James H. Carney, both well known in the Association, were the respective nominees for the vice- presidency, and either seemed competent to fill that position in a manner that would reflect credit upon the ...
THE CHIEFTAIN'S TRIUMPH. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1887
THE CHIEFTAIN'S TRIUMPH. Leader of the wondrous legions ! Chieftain of the mighty bands ! That through earth's re notest regions, O'er her wildest, loneliest lands, Send thy soldiers, calm and daring, Vowed to service all divine, Love's immortal banner bearing, Blazoned with His saving Sign ! O ! can title greater, grander, Crown ol dauntless warrior be, Than the one, thou blest commander! By thine armies twined for thee, When, in thy strong arm confiding, (That so oft had crushed the foe) They first chose thy glorious guiding, More than sixty years ago ? Ah ! celestial inspiration Never showed a safer guide. For the blest work of Salvation Ne'er on firmer strength relied, Never named a nobler leader To the blissful promised land, Never bade more potent pleader Heavenward lift his suppliant hand. Worthy son of grand Ignatius ! Of the pure and peerless Knight, Who, from lands and castles spacious, And from longed-for fields of fight Turned with steps that would not falter, And in lon...
MODERN CHIVALRY; ITS CHAMPIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1887
MODERN CHIVALRY; ITS CHAMPIONS. The revolution in the middle ages, at a certain stage, threatened to overthrow that high state of civilization which the restoration of peace to the Holy Lands had promoted among the inhabitants of Christian Europe. The leading minds of the dav waited anxiously the approaching end. All bemoaned the degradation to which the French People had fallen, and full sorrowfully did they echo in their hearts that impassioned lament of Burke's, " The age of chivalry is gone. " How sad must have been the circumstances which evoked such a heartfelt exclamation! How gloomy the outlook which revealed itself to those patriots, who were willing to shed their life's blood in battling for the peace and welfare of all mankind ! Yet at this late day, as we look upon that scene of carnage and follow the pages of history up to the present time, such direful forebodings appear to have been the outcome of a too fertile imagination, of a fancy wrought up to the highest pitch o...
OVID. — HIS CHARACTERS: AJAX AND ULYSSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1887
OVID. — HIS CHARACTERS: AJAX AND ULYSSES. A PAPER READ AT THE EXHIBITION OF THE JUNIOR CLASSES, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 22ND. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN : In opening the Junior Commencement Exercises of this year, I have the privilege of extending to you a most sincere welcome, and of inviting you to the enjoyment of a programme which displays the fruits of some of the best studies of our year's coui'se. It was our good fortune this year to read the works of two great Latin authors ; the one, a master of prose, the other, of verse. Caesar ! Ovid ! The former of these celebrated men is so often spoken of in his character of a great general and of an imperial ruler, that we would like to give a passing notice, at least, of his literary abilities, and recall those commentaries of Caesar which have helped as much as his deeds to perpetuate his fame. But Ovid is our theme. In introducing to you this poet of the Augustan age, we have much to admire in his unlimited poetic genius and in his marvellous f...
THE RIDE OF PHAETHON. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1887
THE RIDE OF PHAETHON. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN : I have a lighter task to perlorm than the one that fell to the lot of my predecessor. He had a well-contest&lt; d trial to describe, wherein the sterner facts of life were treated of, and the less attractive passions of the human heart displayed by unromantic characters and for most selfish ends. Mine is a tale of rich imagination ; where poesy takes the loftiest flight and widest sweep ; where all the charms of kindred love, and all the truest pathos in our nature, are set forth in verses the most exquisite, and in a style wherein Ovid shows himself at his best. Many of you here tonight may, perhaps, have sat in a certain hall in this city, and carelessly gazed at a drop-curtain, on which a wild ar.d startling scene is painted. A handsome boy, with locks flowing backward on the wind, is standing dazed and pale with fear in a chariot, which is being whirled through the air by four affrighted steeds, who, snorting flame and smoke f...
A VISIT TO HOLY CROSS COLLEGE THIRTY YEARS HENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1887
A VISIT TO HOLY CROSS COLLEGE THIRTY YEARS HENCE. THE ACCOUNT OF THIS VISIT, WHICH WAS ONLY PROJECTED. BUT NEVER REALIZED, WAS WRITTEN BY J. J. LANGLEY, WHILE A STUDENT OF THE COLLEGE IN THE YEAR 1849. 1 awoke on the morning of the 29th of July, 1849, healthy and strong, and with the scenes and transactions of the previous day fresh in my memory. I silently dressed and sallied forth from my bed light-hearted and free ; for it was a beautiful day. The refreshing breeze joined with the playful voices of some fellow-companions seemed to call me from my state of drowsiness, that I might rejoice and be glad for the exhibition day was over and the time had come, when each one if he chose could begin his journey towards his home, sweet home. I soon washed, but no sooner had I finished, than the Chapel bell warned us that it was Masstime. But Mass ! La ! for me I heard none ; I fancied that the old College was mounting the waves of the depthless sound ; that already I saw the smiling counte...

PERIODICALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 June 1887
PERIODICALS. THE AMERICAN CATHOLIC QUARTERLY REVIEW. We are late in noticing the last number of the Review, but its contents are such as are worth perusal at any time. The articles are varied in their scope, but all show great thought and research, and all are instructive. Our learned historian, John Gilmary Shea, L.L D., gives some interesting facts about " The Boston of Winthrop." Early American history, and especially early New England history, has been receiving careful attention of late, and the result ot the researches does not add much honor to those times, which have for the most part been greatly misrepresented. " Leo XIII and the Septennate " is the subject of an article by Rev. Henry A. Brann, D.D., in which the course of the Holy Father on the septennate bill is explained. A very learned paper by Rev. R. F. Clarke, S. J., is on "A Sceptical Difficulty against Creation." "Land and Labor" is treated by Rev. M. Ronayne, S. J. This article is well worth reading in connection...
