PONTIFF AND DOCTOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1888

PONTIFF AND DOCTOR. It is of no ordinary joy and import to us Catholics, that the whole world, with a unity truly marvellous, has joined in the filial congratulations with which we lately welcomed the golden anniversary of our Supreme Pontiffs elevation to the priesthood. It would seem as if the halcyon days of faith had returned, and the Pope once more assumed the beneficent office of Father of Christendom. One fact, at least, is unmistakably attested, — the Papacy is still living and vigorous, and not, as some would have it, the weak head of a decaying organization. At present, however, we are not immediately concerned with the magnificent testimonial, which a unanimous world has bestowed upon Pope Leo XIII. We wish rather to turn our attention to our Father's golden jubilee, the occasion itself which has called forth such an auspicious outbreak of Catholic veneration. Fifty years a priest! How the words linger in the enraptured hearing! They bring before us a venerated seer, whos...

AVE LEO! [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1888

AVE LEO! Signifer Aeterni lorica Regis amicte, Quis valet omne tuum ferre poeta decus? Pectora qui dominas mortalia semper amore, Quamne tuum lateant nomen opusque lyram? SpiCula vincentis superas tu pacis oliva, Sanctaque cum victis foedera semper inis. lamque tibi gaudens mundi fert Roma magistra, Laurea temporibus stemmata danda tuis. Munera magnorum regumque ducumque tulisti, Regeque nobilior regia vota tenes. Fronte sedet sancta tibi quinquagesimus annus. Felices annos terque quaterque sacros, Aeternum quibus et calicem patenamque levasti, Tu veluti vates vera superna ferens. Utque fugat tenebras coelorum lumen opacas, Sic mala consilium conjicit atra tuum. Usque Patri Tiberis grandaevis murmurat undis, — Vivat ut arbitrio subiuget arma suo ! EDMUNDUS, 'BB

THE FUBILEE IN ROME. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1888

THE FUBILEE IN ROME. The following epistolary description apropos of the Golden Jubilee, we print with kind permission. It is from the pen of one of our graduates of 'BS, and is dated from the American College, January Ist; it reads as follows: I have seen to-day the greatest sight I ever expect to behold the Holy Father celebrating Mass in St. Peter's before a throng of sixty thousand persons. The immense edifice was literally packed. Admission was by ticket, and the greatest discrimination was made in the distribution. In this way, all danger of disturbance was averted. Even with such precau- tions, I apprehended some trouble, but before I finish, you will see how groundless were my fears. An aisle had been constructed up the nave of the church, both sides of which were lined with Papal troops. Up this aisle the Holy Father and his court, with forty cardinals, and about two hundred bishops, advanced towards the main altar. I had managed to squeeze my way tnto the transept (St. Pet...

THE CHRISTMAS PLAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1888

THE CHRISTMAS PLAY. KING ROBERT OF SICTLY. In selecting the plays, acted from time to time by the students of the college, the importance of some didactic purpose exerts a strong influence. The motive of a play has been considered as greatly affecting the reception which it merits. And it was, doubtless, the grand, religious motives of " Sebastian," that to a great extent earned for it the immense success, that greeted its performance a year ago last Christmas, and called for its repetition at Commencement-time. The principal design in "King Robert of Sicily," was to portray the evil effects of over-weening pride, and to show the value of true humility. The play is founded upon the legend which Longfellow has so beautifully narrated in his wellknown poem of the same name. As might be supposed from a knowledge of the legend, the principal interest in the play centres about the actions of King Robert and his angelic usurper. J. H. Willis, in the title-role, gave such an exhibition of ...

A FLIGHT OF FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1888

A FLIGHT OF FANCY. I delight in dreams. I don't mean by this, that I am much given to sleep, but only that my great happiness is that of releasing my mind from the gloom of the present, and allowing it to brood upon the suggestions of my volatile fancv. This has ever been my occupation; my uncomplaining imagination has furnished me a skilful palette and brush, and the pages of history have unfolded most tempting scenes for my airy canvas. In stolen moments, though I seem idle, I am busily taken up with my favorite pursuit, and oh, with what ravishing results! And when the picture has been more transporting than usual, my uncontained enthusiasm spends itself in painting to my companions the glorious vision, but they, poor souls, gather not grains of happiness from fancy's grinding, as I do. So off they hurry to the playground, while I retire to some shaded nook and, almost as a miser, gloat over the wealth of ecstasy, to which I have access ; and when the weird Übbo ! of the ball-fie...

SODALITY RECEPTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1888

SODALITY RECEPTION. On Wednesday, December 14th, Rev. Fr. Rector enrolled under the benign protection of the Blessed Virgin, in the Sodality of the Immaculate Conception, Dennis J. O'Brien, John A. Sheridan, John F. Kelleher, Chas. D. Galligan, James W. O'Brien, Michael C. Gilbride, Timothy F. McCarthy, Chas. P. Heaney, and John T. Creagh, willing candidates, anxious to bind themselves to her as their patroness. The ceremony of the reception is simple yet impressive. The solemn prayers, the devout affirmation of loyalty and sincerity, the adornment with the sacred medal, each sends out an influence, potent to engage the more than passing interest of the curious, and to deeply thrill and edify the hearts of the pious. The service closed with the Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament, that grace might be plentifully showered to keep unbroken the new-born promise ; and with this the ceremony came to an end. They, who a little while before, knelt as prayerful suppliants, now stood badged...

DANIEL WEBSTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1888

DANIEL WEBSTER. It would be impossible to fix a period in American history so pregnant with the names of great public men, as that which immediately succeeded the War of [SI2. The halls of Congress echoed to the classic and impassioned words of a Clay, the magic effusions of a Preston, the thrilling eloquence of a Calhoun and the rich and glowing periods of a Hayne. Yet, among all the great men of that wonderful era, there is not one, probably, whose reputation can bear comparison with that of Webster. Eminent at the bar, eminent in the halls of Congress, he. was without a rival in those vast assemblies, where thousands gathered to hear his voice. Possessed of the deepest learning, the most tender pathos, and the most exalted love of country, he was enabled to sway the hearts of millions with a magic power, such as few have possessed. His noblest efforts were connected with the Constitution. This was his idol. At its feet he laid the brightest gifts of his high nature, and, on its a...

OUR CAMPING TRIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1888

OUR CAMPING TRIP. (CONCLUDED.) We awoke at daybreak the next morning, and after a plunge in the invigorating sea-water, felt as refreshed, as if we hae passed the night on a bed of down. The level bars of sunrise, streaming across the vast expanse of water, which spread oul before our tent, were lighting up the east with ablaze of crimson fire and changing all the little pools along the beach into so many mirrors of shining gold. The view was certainly a gorgeous one from our camp, and later, as the sun rose higher, a fresh pure wind commenced to blow from the northwest, and with both flaps of our tent thrown open, we felt its full benefit, as it came down from the hills behind us, and swept through our grass-carpeted valley, and then rippled the calm surface oi the water. Breakfast was over at a very early hour on this our first morning in camp, and, by seven o'clock we were sailing before a strong northwest wind, bound on our first and most eventful fishing-trip. The life of a fis...

EDITORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1888

EDITORIAL. As Catholics, we cannot but rejoice at the fact, that the Church has been so universally honored in the person of its illustrious Pontiff, on the occasion of his Golden Jubilee. For more than fifty years, the gifted member of the noble Pecci family has performed the many duties of his sacred calling ; has striven earnestly, not only for the eternal, but likewise for the temporal well-being of all who have come within the circle of his influence ; and this, irrespective of creed or calling. Long and strenuously has he endeavored to bring the Catholic Church to the position which rightfully belongs to it in the world, and never, during the centuries that have elapsed since the Reformation so-called, has the Church exercised such beneficial influence among men, as it has done under the guiding hand of the present gloriously reigning Pope Leo XIII. As a statesman, he is unsurpassed by the foremost among the leaders of men. Possessed of a keen intellect and farsighted, as his ...

Y. M. C. A. NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1888

Y. M. C. A. NOTES. In accordance with their original intention of presenting as the final entertainment of the course a popular concert, the amusement committee of the Y. M. C. A. secured the Park Concert Company, assistedby Miss Minnie St. Jacques, soprano, and Mr. Edward H. Frye, humorist. That the committee were wise in selecting this company, none who were present will deny ; for it was, undoubtedly, by far the most enjoyable concert of the course ; and the audience were not slow in showing their appreciation of it. So many, indeed, were the encores received, that finally the artists were compelled, on account of the lateness of the hour, to refuse recalls altogether. Assuredly, the greater part of the success is due to the Park Sisters, who played on almost every conceivable instrument, and played so wellthatthey really enchanted their hearers ; but the humorist, Mr. Frye, also deserves special mention, as he was, without doubt, the best of the many excellent ones that have app...

We tender our sympathy to Michael G. Williams of second rudiments in his sad bereavement by death of a beloved father, which occurred Jan. ist. ...

A VISIT TO AN OLD SCHOOL HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1888

A VISIT TO AN OLD SCHOOL HOUSE. (CONCLUDED.) I remarked with strained attention a boy occupying the seat that I had usually held. At once he shifted his eyes and turned, and betrayed every sign of great nervousness and discomfort. I directed my look to the blackboards running around the walls, and before me, mirabile dictu , were the verv drawings, that had been there years before. At either end of the principal blackboard, were represented two cranes, poised each on one leg, in deep grass bordering on a pool, and two frogs staring upward with bulging eyes. There was the same edging around the blackboard, all the work of one hand, alas, now crumbled into dust, its owner snatched away in the very flower of life. How hard it is to realize such a death ; to think that the artist's living hand is now cold and inert. The thought weighs upon the mind, leaving us with a bewildered consciousness of the shortness and vanity of life. I asked the teacher, if she remembered the young artist. " ...

A WORD. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1888

A WORD. The following- article wao meant for insertion in our last issue; but was held over on account of the excess of matter on hand. The interval, which has elapsed, will not, we trust, cause it to lose its appropriateness with our readers.—Editor. Hark, ye statesmen of Westminster, hark to the piping voice issuing from the depths of the Beacon's Sanctum, presuming to settle the Irish question, to the study of which ye have given so much time and labor in vain. Listen to its sage oracles. Lo, first in melodious, poetic accents it sings of the beauty of Ireland's hills, its verdant meadows, fair herds, and picturesque cottages. But hark, the tone changes, discord breaks in on a false note. It sings of "the unlovely characteristics " of the Irish race, —the Irish, the race of impetuous passion, of poetry, mirth, and chivalry. These then are " unlovely characteristics. O voice, where is thy sense of the poetical in man's nature, that thou allowest thyself to be so carried away by pr...

EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1888

EXCHANGES. The beautiful Christmas number of the Xavier, which lies before us, is a model in every way, deserving alike of our praise and of our imitation. Within its neat and tasty cover, are contained some thirty pages of delightfully interesting matter. It is a holiday number in more than one sense of the term, abounding as it does, in Christmas tales and Christmas poems and descriptions and remembrances of the Christmas season. Nor is its space given up entirely to this subject of Christmas. Two excellent articles on art are contributed by A. Vincent Tack and Charles H. Lopez. The story department is not so ably managed. In " The Way it Happened," the author holds up for our admiration a heroic youth, who, having met with reverse after reverse in his attempts to gain some office of honor, finally has the good fortune to rescue from drowning, as she is going down for the third time, a young girl, who, of course, turns out to be the daughter of a gentleman in authority, by whose a...

BOOK NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 February 1888

BOOK NOTES. PAUL PATOFF, BY MARION CRAWFORD. BOSTON : HOUGHTON MIFFI.IN & CO. A reader must find out a book for himself and not form his opinion of it at second hand. A great pity is it that we have no tribunal to pass sentence upon literary works of every description, and to pronounce them fit or unfit for, worthy or unworthy of perusal. If such an institution existed, we would have it impartial and inexorable. No author, no matter how renowned, would be exempted from investigation. This thought arose within us after laying down Paul Patoff by Mr. Crawford. We read the novel or tale, as he calls it, trusting that a writer of his calibre would not present a mediocre production. It disappointed us greatly. The conception of the work is thoroughly inartistic and sins against every canon of good taste. He wanted to call it a yarn, and a yarn it is, spun out of most impossible threads. It is a monstrosity. Being a clever writer, he could not help writing some beautiful pages...
