The College World. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 10 February 1880
The College World. AMHERST : Only twenty-two excused cuts allowed. Four seniors were conditioned last term. About one-half the junior class is threatened with suspension from cutting orations. On the day of Prayer for Colleges, no regular college exercises were held. A mock trial was held on February 4th, in which a junior was tried for obtaining money under false pretenses. Someone broke into one of the rooms in South College and relieved the occupants of $35. The thief has not yet been discovered. We see that H. G. Smith, formerly of 'Bl, has been enlightening the Biological Association bv a dissertation on " The Dog ; " considered with reference to his origin and possession of mental and moral traits. The Student adds that " the paper was well written, racy and interesting." CORNELL: — W. C. Brown, 'Bl, has been elected commodore of the navy. The three literary societies are considering the question of holding a joint meeting. The sophomores have abolished the office of chaplain....
The Library. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 10 February 1880
The Library. 1 \ 7"E have received, through the courtesy of * " The Scribes of Notre Dame," a book of poems, entitled " Preludes." By Maurice F. Egan. Published to aid in the rebuilding of the University of Notre Dame. It contains a number of very pretty little verses, and several which show much true feeling and sentiment. About half a dozen of them have already appeared in Scribner and Lippincott. Among the best we place " Charity," " Between the Lights," " Dangerous Frankness," and " The Sleeping Song." There is much true poetry in Air. Egan's verses, and this, in addition to the style in which the little book is gotten up, should insure a good reception at the hands of the public. We hope that it may be of service in the cause for which it was published. It comes from the press of Peter F. Cunningham &amp; Son, 817 Arch street, Philadelphia, who have done their work in an excellent manner. On page 63, however, we notice a couple of mistakes in proofreading.
Our Exchanges. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 10 February 1880
Our Exchanges. N\J E have received the Rouge at Noir, a new journal which has just been established at Trinity College, Toronto. The editors beg that no one will imagine that the name implies any connection with Baden Baden or Monaco, and state that they chose it on account of the College Colors, which are Red and Black. We think, nevertheless, that they made a great mistake when they settled on Rouge at Noir as a name, for it is entirely too suggestive. We presume, however, that they were led to their choice from the fact that the paper published at their sister college is entitled The White and Blue, and so adopted the French form. The present issue is very creditable to the editors, and contains two good articles by graduates, as well as one on " Laconics," in which the writer advises brevity of speech instead of attempts to render writing shorter by means of phonetic spelling. We wish the editors success. ANOTHER stranger has also put in an appearance from Oxford, Georgia ; by n...
Shavings. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 10 February 1880
Shavings. T T is not reasonable to suppose that Cicero's teacher, Scsevola, the auger, was a bore. — Advance. HE who Mrs. to take a kiss, Has Mr. thing he should not Miss.— Ex. FULL many a joke of purest ray serene, Misunderstood, makes the Prof, seem an ass ; Full many a pun is born to blush unseen, And waste its sweetness on a stupid class.— Ex. JUNIOR. —(taking diet-lectures) —"Please repeat." Prof. —" How far have you got ? " Student. —"I've just got to 'embracing,' sir." One would naturally think that was far enough for the first half term. — Advance. IF a body take a toddy, Bourbon or Old Rye— If a body treat a body, Need a bard decry? — Ex.

Hare and Hounds. a HTARANTARA, tarantara" sounded the horns of several members of the Hare and bounds Club as they filed into the depot on f way to Tremont last Saturday morning, pre- '*■ v led by G.

The day was threatenbut the spirits of the pack were not dampened te fact, though their numbers were lessened When Tremont was reached the Manhattan ;use, on Central Avenue, was sought, and the genial proprietor soon provided a room in which the hares divested themselves of voluminous ulsters which covered up Knickerbockered " understandings," and the hounds proceeded to array themselves in garments of various descriptions. Two of the pack, Messrs. Emrich and Neyman being resplendent in the scarlet jackets of the Westchester Hunt, to which they belong. At 10.35, hares were sent on their way, and k nning up Central Avenue, soon disappear* 1 round a turn in the road. The hounds warn 1 themselves around the stove for ten minuti s, a...
