A VISIT TO AN OLD SCHOOL HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 October 1887
A VISIT TO AN OLD SCHOOL HOUSE. Witn what peculiar love and veneration do we look upon the building, where we have taken in our first draughts of knowledge ! With what an absorbing gaze the eye roves over the old edifice, fastening upon every stone and cranny, as if it half expected them each to speak out, and tell the childish curiosity of its gaze years ago ! How quickly, after a brief inspection, does the head bow, and the mind wander off into pleasant remembrances of the past; and, as some scene more vivid than others comes before us, the eyes are raised to that part of the building, where the scene was enacted, and there they rest with eager scrutiny, till the former dreamy expression creeps into them again. Sol stood the other day before my old school-building; somehow or other its present appearance does not correspond to my childish impression. Then it was dark and forbidding ; it is still rather gloomy, but yet dear and attractive to my heai't; then it was a huge monster to...

BOOK NOTICES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 October 1887
BOOK NOTICES. ONCE UPON A TIME, AND TALES FOR EVENTIDE. AVE MARIA PUBLISHING CO. These two works are collections of stories gathered together from the different numbers of the Ave Maria, and therefore intended especially for the instruction and delight of our children. All of the tales herein contained are bright, neatly written, and at once instructive and entertaining. If the aim of the publishers has been to furnish Catholic children with reading, pure in its tone and elevated in its morals, — reading such as should alone be in their hands, they have certainly accomplished their object. And, after the perusal of these two books, we cannot but feel sorry that we have not more of their kind, with which to instil into the youthful minds of to-day, those principles of rectitude and duty, which are most necessary for the formation of their characters to virtue and piety. In the " Tales," the little sketch, " Elbe's Angel," is deserving of the highest praise ; while in " Once upon a Ti...
THE EMANCIPATION OF MASSACHUSETTS, [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 October 1887
THE EMANCIPATION OF MASSACHUSETTS, BY BROOKS ADAMS. BOSTON : HOUGHTON, MIFFLIN &amp; CO. Mr. Brooks Adams has evidently pitched his ideal of emancipation very high. The first chapter of his book, however, reveals the deplorable fact that he himself still labors under fetters, which clank incongruously in the midst of the 19th century of enlightenment. His very first page betokens that he has read history not rightly. His first three sentences are an evidence that he himself is still held in the bondage of a bigotry, which does not sit well on any man, who has pretensions to even commonplace education. For a man, nowadays, to talk of mediceval torpor , puts him outside the privilege of respectful attention. So much said for the spirit in which the book is written ; let us see its object. The title does not convey much intelligence of the meaning of the book. His idea is to show that Massachusetts has made a fierce battle and a heroic struggle to break down the sacerdotal barr...
THE CATHOLIC WORLD, OCT., 1887. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 October 1887
THE CATHOLIC WORLD, OCT., 1887. There are two articles in this number especially deserving of notice, "Why I became a Catholic," and "Galileo Galilei and Dr. McGlynn." The latter is from the pen of Fr. U. Heinzle, S. J., Professor of Philosophy at Woodstock College, Md., and shows thoroughly and convincingly the error of those who would place in the same category the case of the celebrated astromoner, submissive to ecclesiastical authority, and that of the unfrocked priest, whose proud insubordination now thrusts him into prominence. The advance sheets of the Catholic World for November have also been received and contain an article by Right Rev. Jno. J. Keene on " Leo XIII. and the Catholic University ; " a clear exposition of the Holy Father's intentions in approving this most important undertaking.

A CHRISTMAS RHYME. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1887
A CHRISTMAS RHYME. The gay lights shone from the mountain height, And sparkled on the frozen mere, The dumb snow fell, the chapel bell Rang merrily for gladness near. Glad were the valleys that Christmas night, Glad were the hills with new-found mirth. The leafless tree had its song of glee, To greet the hour of the Saviour's birth. Sweet were the sounds, as the light sleigh sped, With its freight of happy hearts, o'er the snow, To the Midnight Mass, in the mountain pass, Like a fairy scene in the long ago. A little one lies on his downy bed, Dreaming, as only children dream, Of laughing fays and golden Mays. And shallops blown o'er a dream-born stream. Up from the valley comes a Child; Love-laden is the tree He bears, A sweet surprise for sleeping eyes, And the little heart that all things dares To ask, and hope from Jesu mild. He hears the Christ-Child fondly say: " Christmas is here, be glad, my dear; May Christmas joy keep you alway." FRO.
A LEGEND OF KILLALOE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1887
A LEGEND OF KILLALOE. The Kenneilys were known for miles around Killaloe. They dwelt a mile or two outside the town in a neat cottage, and were famous for their potatoes and goodness. Grandfather Kennedy was the patriarch of the country-side. No wedding or wake was without his presence. His violin was welcomed at every hearth, and his ballads had been heard under every thatched roof in the county. There was a pleasing contrast between his white locks and the raven hair of his daughter-in-law, "Mary" she was affectionately called by the peasants. Her tall, graceful form could be seen at any time bending over the sick couch, or hoeing in her own garden. For, being a true woman, she did not disdain to work. Her face was rarely beautiful; it was pale, serious, sweet. Her mouth was firm and patient, and such eyes ! hazel eyes full of subdued suffering, and so clear, that her soul seemed to lie in their depths. She was an unforgetable woman. And everybody said that her boy, a tall, manly ...
A THOUGHT ON THE POETRY OF CHRISTMAS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1887
A THOUGHT ON THE POETRY OF CHRISTMAS. " the coronach stole Sometimes afar and sometimes anear."— Tennyson. Christmas Eve ! what an array of poetical images looms up in the mind at the sound of this word ; how tender are the recollections of the home fireside and its beloved figures halfdrawn in the flickering light of the Yule log, gathering around the sputtering hearth. How sweetly do the childish legends, in which we implicitly believed, as they were told to our delighted ears, so many Christmas Eves ago, recur to our memory. And how gently do our earliest impressions of the child Jesus in the manger flow back on our hearts ; and the vague impression we then formed of the humility and the power of the Infant, guiding through the heavens the star that heralded His birth to the kings of the East, still lingers like a pleasant dream, in the memory. There is in all these images a simple sublimity that poet has never grasped, that seems too ethereal to be caught and made substantial, e...
THE BARON'S CHRISTMAS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1887
THE BARON'S CHRISTMAS. Give kindly ear unto my fairy-tale. My hero, not the elfin one, who steals Within the petals of the tender rose, Who sports and gambols in the heathered vale Who, 'neath the mushroom, whirls in giddy reels, And in the cup-shaped lily seeks repose; For mine is earthly, and the fairy charm Around him hung but for a tiny hour, And passed away, e'en as the fragrant balm Oft quickly dies from out some wayside flower. His heart was hard, so hard that never smile Would dare to light the coldness of his eye; Nor e'er would he his sullen lips beguile With words of kindness or of charity. His cherished friends were Bacchus and the smoke He slowly blew in heavy clouds about. Mayhap, therein his youthful years awoke, And wafted back his boyhood's glee and shout. The baron oft into his turret strayed, Before his grate to sit in absent mood, While round him thick the wavy cloudlets played, And by his side the brimming flagon stood. 'Twas Christmas Eve; there sat he all alon...
THE CHRISTMAS GIFT. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1887
THE CHRISTMAS GIFT. Charlie Denault, the brightest boy in the Philosophy Class of St. Francis' College, stood meditatively regarding from his window the eddying snow, one dull December morning, in the year 1873. The snow, which had been falling all night, covered the earth like a pall; but still the starry flakes continued to descend, while the gusty North-Wind whirled them about, as if playing a rude game of hide-and-seek. The very trees, close to the college walls, sighed and moaned before the force of the blast, and, swaying, tossed their hard, dry twigs against the window panes, as if calling for aid in this their hour of distress. Charlie was a tall, young man, with a handsome, striking countenance, and clear, lustrous gray eyes. He was slightly grave and pale to-day, but with a soft seriousness, altogether free from the restlessness of keen anxiety. This might have been the effect of the dullness of the day, or the thoughts, present to him, of home and the merry joys of former...
WINTER SONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1887
WINTER SONG. There are snow-drifts in the hollows, Robed in white the sullen glens, Where in summer skimmed the swallows, Sped the slender-winged wrens ; From the hardy North comes winter bold, His frosty sway to hold. From the fragile boughs are shaken Feathery tufts of downy snow, Where the crisp north winds awaken Shrill, cold echoings, as they blow; For the Winter King has pressed his hand Upon the helpless land. Haste thee, haste thee to the river Where the merry skaters glide, Setting all the air aquiver, Slipping o'er the frozen tide, For the stream has felt the icy sting Of winter's roving king. Silvery sheen the moon is flinging Broadly o'er the glittering white, From afar come voices singing Through the arches of the night; And the hoary monarch proudly reigns In his usurped domains. E. P. O'HARA.
NOTES IN REMEMBRANCE OF FATHER STACK. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 December 1887
NOTES IN REMEMBRANCE OF FATHER STACK. I first met Father Stack when he was preceptor of, and I, a student in the second class of grammar at Boston College. I had just quit the public schools, and, of course, was not a little curious to see a real Jesuit instructor. To say that Father, then Mr. Stack, impressed me more than favorably, faintly expresses the mingled respect and veneration I felt for my first teacher in a Jesuit College. I was but a month in his charge, and therefore prefer to speak of him as a man, a Jesuit and a priest. It is not much of an anecdote that I am going to tell, and yet, it is one that is frequently presented to me by memory. I had been ill during my first term at college, and, upon my return to study, felt an inclination common to youth, namely, to talk of suffering endured in sickness. Mr. Stack heard me speaking of the intense tortures of rheumatic fever. I was flattered to have him ask me concerning the progress of the disease, the duration of the atta...
