Current Topics. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 27 January 1880
Current Topics. A \ TE are in the midst of our examinations, and, in consequence, beg our readers to be lenient, if they discover any errors. Several of our contemporaries, including our sister journal, have suspended publication until after the examinations, but the editors of THE SPECTATOR feel that the long break occasioned by the Christmas holidays would not warrant a suspension following so close upon it, and so have decided to put themselves to some extra trouble, rather than disappoint their subscribers. Semi-Annual is at hand, and the assiduous committeeman is making his rounds, collecting, or trying to collect, the necessary V from all his classmates. And, in this connection, it seems fitting to say a word to 'Bl. The committee say that a good deal of difficulty is experienced in getting subscriptions from the J uniors, and, of course, with this example before them, what can be expected from the lower classes ! Every man in the Junior Class ought, as should every man in Col...
Paraphrase from Alcestis. CHORUS, LINES 445-475. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 27 January 1880
Paraphrase from Alcestis. CHORUS, LINES 445-475. O DAUGHTER of Pelias ! farewell, where thou dwellest, In sunless, deep mansions in Pluto's sad realm : And to Charon, the ancient, thy tale, as thou tellest, I, too, would repeat, while he sits at the helm. O'er Acheron, fares one in virtue excelling ; Sing, Muses, of her, to the seven-stringed lute ; Her praises though feast-loving Sparta are swelling, And in bright, happy Athens, they shall not be mute. Such a song hast thou left to the bard by thy dying. Would it rested with me to restore thee to light ! From the mansions of Pluto I'd aid thee in flying, Where the stream of Cocytus is winding through night. For thou, unexampled among all the living, Did'st dare to receive, from the mansions below. Thy well-beloved husband, thy own spirit giving, The choicest of gifts that thy love could bestow. O, lightly on thee, where thy body is lying. May the earth, that is piously scattered, now rest ; And if thy dear husband e'er cease from h...
The Standard at Columbia. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 27 January 1880
The Standard at Columbia. w E have received a letter from a graduate, in which he says : " A green youth asked my advice as to what college he should enter. I answered Columbia ; but he replied, ' I know some Columbia boys, and they seem to have lots of time to play, and I hear it's a kind of boating institution. I want one where the standard is high, and I think Union College would be the best, only my mother says she would have to leave the city, and live there, if I go, but I think I can fix that.' Has the standard of our Alma Mater fallen so, since my class of '64?" We are glad that our correspondent has brought forward this subject, as it is one which closely concerns us all, and the opinion held by the green youth is one which is common to a good many New Yorkers, who do not know as much about the matter as they imagine. Those, whose sons are at Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Union, or any other college which is removed from the parental gaze, fondly imagine that their young hopefu...
College Bores. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 27 January 1880
College Bores. I. THE SOCIETY MAN. ' | "HE Society Man is one of those beings who, by endeavoring to aggrandize himself and his fellows, renders himself obnoxious to those by whose means he seeks to attain his end. When he sets his eye upon some promising freshman, the latter is doomed to boredom, unless he favors the particular society whose member proceeds to "work" him. The Society man is most oppressively kind, and wants to know if he won't " come round in the evening to see the fellows, you know ; don't compromise yourself at all, but we would like you to see some of the graduate members ; " and though the poor victim has not the slightest wish to join, and though he hints the same about as plainly as he can, without saying so up and down, he is, nevertheless, pestered to " look into the matter," and told that his tormentor " never runs down the other societies ; oh, no ! but, of course, they do things of which he would say but he makes it a rule not to speak, if he can't say a...
Lawn Tennis. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 27 January 1880
Lawn Tennis. JT EW students are aware of the real interest taken in this game, and of the healthy condition of the club. About two months ago, seven students, Livingston, McVickar, Miller, and Paine, 'BO ; de Rham, 'Bl ; Harvey, 'B2 ; and Emmet, 'B3, met together and organized the Columbia Lawn Tennis Club. Now, the club consists of twenty-three active, and three honorary members. By a provision of the constitution, its membership is limited to twenty-five, so that there are only two vacancies. In Columbia, there is so little college life that an association, or club, which draws a number of students together, is certainly to be encouraged, and deserves success. The meetings are held in the armory of the Ninth Regiment, in West 26th St., on Monday and Wednesday afternoons, and Saturday mornings, and are largely attended. The writer was present at a match between the college team and a picked team from another club, using the same armory, on the 13th inst. The sides were as follows ;...
Morning. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 27 January 1880
Morning. AURORA'S tints are blazing in the East, Brightly as e'er they gleamed in classic fable, O'er " Duffy's Lodging House for Man and Beast," And " Lavery's Livery Stable." Far overhead the morning's breeze is whirling The clouds to westward, where the night still lurks, The wreathing smoke upward is slowly curling From the Oleo-margarine Works. The owl a farewell to the darkness hoots ; Their tangled legs the " bummers" homeward coax ; And in the hallway coyly lay their boots, " So's not to raise er row to wake er folks." The horse's neigh, the cattle's low, the farmyard's melodies, The skylark's carol —all bid Nature waken. The milkman, Hebe of the town, has bellowed his Wares, and I smell grilling bacon. CRASSUS.
The Baby Cup. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 27 January 1880
The Baby Cup. TT had been rumored that the Sophomores A were to present Mr. Spencer with a baby cup, in honor of his son and heir, and, in consequence, Prof. Van Amringe's room was crowded, on the afternoon of Wednesday, January 14th, with an enthusiastic throng composed of all the classes, from the gravest and most-beavered Senior, to the youngest and most lamb-like Freshman, with here and there a Miner in his overalls, fresh from the sweet-smelling laboratory. President Gillies called the assembly to order, and announced that Mr. Romaine would present the cup. Mr. Romaine said : " Gentlemen : —After the able speech of the gentleman, who has just preceded me, I feel that I can hardly say anything further ; nevertheless, a few remarks from me, on this occasion, may not be entirely out of place. (Cries of "Go on," etc.) Little did we think, when we first began our now dearly-beloved Anglo-Saxon Reader, that the first words which met our eyes on the opening page of the book were to be...

Correspondence. CRICKET. NEW YORK, Jan. 22, 1880. [ RACKET COURT CLUB, } 1\ j\ R. EDITOR —Cricket is the most gentlemanly game I know of, and that is the reason why Columbia College should take it up. I am very glad to say that our "small beginnings " are bearing fruit as rapidly as can be expected, and the prospects for the coming season are very bright indeed. In fact, I don't think that we shall have the slightest difficulty in getting up practice games among ourselves, with full elev- ens. The St. George's Cricket Club is taking great interest in us, and it was only recently that a very liberal offer was made by them to us. It is proposed that we raise $l5O, to be handed over to them, and they, in return, open their club and ground to all members of the Columbia " University." The object of the $l5O is to enable them to obtain the grounds, in Hoboken, for two more days of the week, thus giving them the grounds four days in the week, till the ist of June, and after that, the whol...
The Love Letter. (A TALE OF VACATION.) [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 27 January 1880
The Love Letter. (A TALE OF VACATION.) &lt;( T7 VER been to Nantucket?" Ah! Tom, old boy, I see some one's been giving away that little affair I had there last Summer. What they haven't, and you want to hear about it? Well, old man, I'm just a " leetle " bit touchy on that point, but of course I won't keep it from you, so here goes. You see when Prex shut up shop last June, I thought I'd stay and go in for a scholarship, but towards the end of July it became so infernally hot that I gave it up, and after looking around for some quiet little place to forget it all in, I hit upon Nantucket. You know, Tom, I always had a horror of getting spooney, and rather considered it as one of the Freshmen's prerogatives, but it's worse than useless to fight against Nature, and my turn came at last. She was staying at the hotel, when I came, and was a stunner, I tell you,, brown hair and eyes, a mouth whose curves were more perfect than Cupid's bow, and a voice that would put the nightinga...
About College. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 27 January 1880
About College. a soothing noise the new ventilators and heating engine make in Anthon. As we go to press the Semi-Annual contribution from 'Bl amounts to 321 cents per man. ABOUT twenty men are at work at Wood's, and the new gym. will doubtless bring forward more. SOME of the members of the Dramatic Association took part in " King Rene's Daughter," last week. T HE new electric light has not yet been lighted in Anthon, but it affords great amusement to the freshmen, who swing it to and fro as they pass. THE next number of the SPECTATOR will be the last of the present volume. The price of the SPECTATOR for the remainder of the college year will be $l.OO. Mr. Edgar Fawcett, '6B, is the author of the "False Friend," the latest success at the Union Square Theatre. LIVINGSTON, 'BO, and Harvey, 'B2, have been elected by the Philolexian Society to represent it in the coming debate with Barnard. Blackwell, 'BO, and S. B. Stewart, 'BO, will be their opponents.

School of Mines. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 27 January 1880
School of Mines. r r HE Intermediate Examinations, which began on Monday, Jan. 26th, will continue until Feb. 4th. With the exception of the fourth class, whose examinations end on the 30th, the school will open again on the sth of Feb. THE " Civils " have not discovered a new planet as yet. The committee appointed to decide on the merits of the question and argument voted in favor of the Bohemian ovens. MOST of the Mining Engineers will leave the quantitative laboratory on the sth of next month with a sad but sure prospect of returning next year to complete their studies, THE last number of the Quarterly was an especially successful one. Prof. Eggleston's article was exceedingly interesting to all members of the school. The sale of copies has greatly increased, and there is every prospect of a long and happy life for the paper. AT the thirty-ninth regular meeting of the Chemical Society, on Thursday, Jan. Bth, a paper on " Desilverization by Zinc," was read by Mr. H. A. Robinson. T...
