SEMPER .-URSUM. 



v °l- I Muryville C liege, April, 1876. No. 7. 



By A. M. Hook. 



As heaven's bright orb with dazzling brilliance gleams 

To gild the world, enchanted with its dreams, 
And fair Aurora, with her heavenly light, 
^ Kesumes her place and dissipates the night, 
The waking earth, now fondled with such love, 

Responding to that central orb above, 
Displays her heauties o'er her varied clime. 

And nature's all reechoes love sublime. 
A ponderous mount, with cloud-capped tower, rears 

Aloft its thunder-splintered pinnaelec — 
Successi\e mount the pillars, lofty, riv'n, 

And s< ek the sky, like stepping-stones to heav'n — 
Like columns tall, of marble wrought, uphold 

The spiry roof and ceilings, coved with gold. 
Within's a palace that o'erlooks the wave, 

More beautiful than king's, yet called a cav — 
Rock-paved beneath, ana granite-arched o'erh \ d — 

Which seems to have been the chambers of the dead. 
But lo! a sound, that in the distance broke, 

As if the King of earth in anger spoke— 
Up, up the rushing, red volcano went, 

And torrents of earth's lightening skyward >en% 
Which o'er heaven and earth and ocean flas'icc', 

While scattering wide the downward frigments dash d, 
And echoed far o'er mountain, plain and glen, 
And seemed as 'twere a gloomy hell within. 
Beneath its brow a trickling, murm'ring rill, 
^ Undaunted, seeks the valley, green and still; 
Gliding from view love-listening groves between, 

And most melodious when it flows unse. n, 
What though at times the sun in wrath retire, 

As intervenes a gloomy veil of fire! 
Soon bond the clouds in brighter beauties, fair, 
And see where'er it flows their image there. 



With winding course and ever ceaseless How, 

The riplet joins trie troubled stream below, 
Where massively the angry waves roll on, 

liegardless of all ruin farther down. 
O'er which commingled masses blindly fall, 

And, seif-inteired, they howl their funeral. 
In yonder distance, 'neath the mountain height, 

A death-like ftream, unparallclled the sight! 
With cola an i stoic glare, congealed to ice, 
Moves s'u ggish on — a boundless sea of gliss. 

As still supplies th' unfailing source above. 
To fairer climes the apparition moves: 

Where, by its weight, the massive heap divides, 
And under tropic suns it gently glides, 

And proudly sails — a starry bannered fleet, 
To wield dominion o'er the ocean's deep. 

Like ancient temples, with their glittering spires 
Sparkling in each sunbeam, as blazing fires, 

The iceberg floats, unconscious that ere long, 
Like countless myriads of earth's busy throng, 

Her missive walls and proudly gilded dome 
Must on old ocean's bosom find a tomb. 

Ecstatic scene ! which fills the soul with love ; 
Beneath the ocean rolls — the sky above — 

In graceful undulations fade away, 
As fades the glimmering light at closing day, 

And with a loving, blushing, smi ing face, 
They each advance and clasp a fond embrace. 

The sun retiring to his mighty sleep, 
Bathes his kingly brow amid the briny deep. 

While twilight weeps o'er all beneath its gaze, 
And wraps the world amid its lurid haze. 

Then blooming clouds — companions of the sun — 
Extending far and tinged with sombre gloom, 

In grandest and portentous spectres ri»e, 
O'erspread the earth and veil the azure skies ; 

While wide o'er earth they breathe their fatal breath, 
Which — vile tornado! works the work of death. 

And lo! fir distant o'er the ocean's flood, 
Wave shouldering wave in frightful, angry mood, 

The winds urge on the billowy, living roll, 
And whirlwinds dwell within it like a soul, 
Heaving the foamy, roaring surges high, 



While all beside was voi< eless, brent Wet.-:, fear. 
' Maze within maze the lurid webs are rolled, 
And as they burst, the living flame- unfold; 

And, as black midnight melts from sky to sky. 
Air becomes fire, and. like a sea on high, 

Wide whirlwind rolls his deluge, seared and riv'n, 
And shriek the lightnings at the wrath of heaven. 

As the fire-bolts leap to the world below, 
And flood the sky with a lurid glow. 

Capricious showers of crashing hailstones break 
In heavy torrents from the airy lake; 

The falling crystals in their blinded maze, 
Transmitting colors of the riven says. 

Perfect an arch across the gilded dome 
"From central earth to heaven's meridian throne." 

Such is the rainbow with its thousand dyes. 
Emblazoned like a triumph on the skies 

Majestic token of its maker's might, 
Pure zone of grace, grand corronal of light: 

God's own blest hand-mark mystic, full, sublime, 
Graven in glory to the end of time. 

Now all is still — the troubled storm is stayed— 
The mighty Queen, in royalty arrajed, 

Leaps from her lurking-place and gently smile* 
O'er half the earth and o'er her thousand isles. 

Proudly her chariot rolls to bear her sway, 
And all her myriad subjects ope the way — 

Submissive bow — confess her rightful crown. 
And pay due homage at her shining throne. 

Alas! her realm, a vast arena turns, • 

And through her starry host rude anger burns. 

And wild confusion smites the shining race. 
And tears the planets from their royal place, 

Cruelly hurling burning meteors down, 
While smiling heaven assumes a tien crown. 
"•Though storms may rage, and forked lightnings play 
Fiom earth to heaven, however frightfully. 

Though showers of fire may gild the realms above, 
And through ethereal space grand spectres move; 

Though wrapt in flame the realms of ether glow, 
And thunder peals convulse the world below. 
Yet high above, in heaven'? ethereal dome, 

Those 'mining worlds shall in their orbits roam 



4. 



And orb on orb, unnumbered in their spheres, 
Shall still revolve to note the passing years, 

In matchless splendor, beautiful, sublime, 

Till Gabriel's trump proclaim the end of time; 

When all shall rush around God's shining throne, 
And tilled with ecstacv exclaim, well don?! 



Elements of Success. 



By g. e. s. 



The little streams that flow from 
the mountain sides glide gently on 
until they reach their destiny, ap- 
parently without an effort. The 
broad fields of golden grain stand 
waving in the gentle breezes of 
the summer, because the hand of 
rhe laborer moves not. Nature 
arrays herself in her most beauti- 
ful robes without the smallest per- 
ception of exertion, yet she con- 
tains mysteries which the wicdom 
of men , who have sought out ma- 
ny inventions, has not been able to 
&oive. Destruction is the work of 
indolence, and desolation appears 
in the absence of energy. The 
ruins of cities and the waste places 
of tne earth cry out in a voice of 
madness; "Oh diligence! why 
sleepest thou? Knowest thou not 
that the days of thy life are in- 
creasing and that the labor of thy 
hands beareth heavily upon thee?" 
Gazing over the broad bosom of 
nature, exhibitions of power pre- 
sent themselves with such grand- 
eur as to make the human mind 
almost tremble with awe, yet they 
were made with a single word. 



But the achievements of man- 
kind, even when they reach the 
highest standaid of perfection, are 
only a mere shadow in compari- 
son with the slightest mark which 
the Monarch of Ages has placed 
upon the outlines of the world, yet 
require the active co-operation of 
the most far-seeing intellects, to- 
gether with the assistance of <he 
amount of physical strength nec- 
essary for procuring their accom- 
plishment. And, c:ns:q<:erjdy, 
persons who spend their lime in 
dreaming of the seasons of pros- 
perity, when the earnest desires of 
their hearts shall take definite 
shape, and trust to the fates to 
weave the chain of their lives, and 
at the end of their existence to 
place upon their heads the golden 
crown, need to understand imme- 
diately that the world is not con- 
cerned about their success, and 
that the scepter of fame does not 
permit itself to be attached as an 
ensign of royalty to the bosom of 
the unworthy. Such persons have, 
perhaps, if the narrow limits of 
their contracted intellects permit, 
very elevated aspirations as re- 
gards the degree of success desir- 
able, and even look with longing 
expectation that the store-houses 



o 



of learning will throw wide their 
doors and pour ont their rich 
treasures in the greatest allusion 
at their feet, yet when wisdom who 
has been so long neglected that 
she scarcely dares to venture from 
her retreat, whispers in her com- 
mon sense manner, put forth 
hand and wield the helm, they 
shrink back with dismay and as- 
tonishment and still wonder why 
their barns are not filled with the 
golden harvest of intellectual ex- 
pansion and their garners with 
the pleasant fruits of bright a- 
enlevements. 

But the surpassing power of 
genius aided by the excellent in- 
centive, diligence, continue its 
course regardless of their earnest 
desires to become illustrious; and 
the great iron wheel of thought, 
upon which depends the destiny 
of the world, rolls steadily on, 
over the broad expansion of hu- 
man intelligence, crushing in its 
way the craggy peaks of igno- 
rance and superstition and leaving 
the firm and beaten track upon 
which imagination can build her 
most stately structures, and na- 
ture who will ever be considered 
the concentration of beauty and 
the refuge of the unknown, will in 
a measure unfold the windings of 
her labyrinths and present the 
lovely bowers beneath whose re- 
freshing shade the weary care- 
worn pilgrims may rejoice and en- 
joy the recompense of their labor. 
Centuries roll by bringing with 
them new scenes and a new peo- 
ple whose business it is to shake 
the dusty folds of oblivious garb 
and encircle her in the bright 



robes of progression, to raise the 
procumbent standard of literature 
which has been lost amid the 
overwhelming debris of centuries 
and fasten it firmly upon the mon- 
ument of system. But the world 
has perhaps also been awake be 
fore them, and (hey have for their 
consideration the earnest labors 
and investigations of the preced- 
ing generations of wnieh they can 
avail themselves if chey cheese, 
But these alone certainly will not 
insure success, nor can they them- 
selves be obtained without an ef- 
fort, And while wc admit <hnt 
this is one of the strongest links in 
the great chain that binds together 
the two important centers/ — nature 
and science, around which revolve 
the efforts of human action, and 
fr< :-.\ which radiate the principles 
of those actions, yet dependence 
alone, we repeat, upon the efforts 
of others, for insight with regard 
to these questions which are of 
such moment and which should 
kindle the fire of investigation in 
the heart of every enterprising 
man, are as a broken reed. 

Man's success depends to a 
great extent on his own intrinsic 
worth. He may indeed attain a 
somewhat notable reputation by 
assuming the garb of those who 
have gone before us without the 
assistance of our own innate powers. 
but this itself bears upon its face 
the mark of plagiarism. 

The prospect before us is very 
broad, and we must show to the 
world, that although we are per- 
fectly willing to avail ourselves of 
the thought and experience of

We publish m this number the 
oration which G. ('. Stewart de- 
livered at the Animi Cuitus So- 
ciety's last exercise. 



The next issue, a double num- 
ber, containing full accounts of 
the commencement exercises, will 
appear a week after college loses 
and will be forwarded immediately 
to the subscribers. 



M e have b°en so fortnnpte rs 
to obtain from Rev. A. M. Hook 
the poem he delivered as his 
graduating exercise. At the time 
it attracted much attention and 
elicited just praise, and we think 
that transferred to paper it will 
lose none of its richness. 



The society is one of the mo^t 
important thing*! connected with 
a college, and perhaps one of the 
most neglected. Those who take 
little interest in the society to which 
they belong, are irregular, and fail 
to perform the duties required of 
them, "can't see the good in fhem ' 
any more than the unlettered rav- 
age can see how a piece of paper 
can convey a message to a distant 
person; but <hose who have best 
performed their duties, appreciate 
more and more the advantages to 
be obtained from a society. It is 
here that the student learns to ap- 
ply the knowledge which he has 
obtained from his textbooks, flere 
the good and bad traits of a person's 
character, show themselves, and 
here is OLie of the best places to 
coire^t t :cm. The society is a min- 
ature world, and although its ob- 
ject is to improve the mind, per- 
haps more gooA is acquired from 
the moral training - . The various 
questions arising outside of debate, 
the elections of members to places of 
honor and trust, oft requite much 
more courage to be met in the right 
manner, and if these things are 
met and decided by each one as he 
thinks right, he is strengthened, 
but if he avoids questions which 
involve difficulty, he injures him- 
self and society. To join a good 
society is one of the first things a 
student should do on entering col- 
lege, and if he attends to his du- 
ties in the right manner he receives 
incalculable benefit, but if he is an 
inactive, worthless member, he 
owes it to himself and the society 
to do better or to leave. 



There was quite an episode in 
the-generally even flow of Dart- 
mouth College affairs a few weeks 
sin e. The faculty forbad the 
publication in the Dartmouth, the 
college journal, of an article to 
which they took exception; but 
despite this command the article 
wns inserted by the editors, and — 
horrible to relate — all seven or" 
thtm were summarily expelled. 
It was but a short time, however, 
until they sen' in a written apolo- 
gy, humbly begging pardon, and 
now they have been reinstated by 
the faculty. Take warning edi- 
tors !

u>t we have a modus operandi of 
our own, that we, through the gifts 
that nature has so kindly bestowed 
upon U3, are jible and willing to 
«*id something to the great impe-

"■Homo fecit, homo faciat'' should 
be the motto written upon the 
programme oi every youth in the 
land. '" "They can because they 
think they can " was the famous 
declaration of Virgil concerning 
the oarsmen in the trial of their 
utrength with their formidable 
competitors. The hindiances that 
present themselves may seem al- 
most insurmountable, and the 
most resolute mind may tremble at 
the undertaking, yet he who wears 
the badge of determination may 
sound the depths of the literary 
ocean, and take his bearings in the 
unknown seas. One person, if he 
be able to climb the rugged heights 
that lead to the goal of mysteries, 
and drink freely from the fountain 
that pours its crystal draughts over 
the battlements of. immensity, 
might shake the ancient fortifica- 
tions which have stood until their 
walls have grown dingy from the 
impressions of centuries, and their 
able defenders have long since 
taken up their aboue amid the 
ccenes of futurity, to their very 
foundations, and standing alone on 
the lofty pinnacle mid the imposing 
grandeur of the scenery, the ele- 
ments seem to utter defiance, and 
the overhanging crags look 
upon him with contempt Yet with 
the smile of victory on his counte- 
nance, and his form standing noble 



and erect, he grasps in his hand 
the banner which, waving in the 
breezes that toss the snow-white 
clouds of the aerial regions, bears 
the joyful inscription, "Success."

W. B. Brown has arrived from 
Danville, in excellent health. 

Base Ball 



The "Reckless'' base ball club 
has had two matches during this 
month with a .picked club at 
Crooked Creek. The first occurred 
on the 15th, and resulted in favor 
of the Reckless, who made 39 
runs, the ('rooked Creek club 
making 8 s . 

The next game was played on 
the 27th. and our boys again came 
off victorious, feeling very well 
satisfied with 48 to 28. 

Reviews and the near approach 
of examinations have interfered 
somewhat with this game of late, 
and our grounds are now 7 deserted. 



April 1. 

April first, the day of practical 
jokes, sells, and red, excited faces, 
passed without losing any of its 
fooling reputation. The whole 
day was rendered quite lively by 
the tricks perpetrated on the un- 
suspecting by the mischief loving. 
At night the ladies of Baldwin 
received a summons to Mrs. Hen- 
ry's kitchen to meet eight or ten 
of the Memorialers who had come 
prepared for a candy-pulling. 
All went merry for a while until 
it was discovered that the ponder- 
ous paper of sugar was ashes, and 
the jug purporting to be filled with 
molasses was in reality filled wi<h 
water. But packages of genuine 
sugar were produced, and, altho' 
favored with a visit by a ghost, the 



evening was spent enjoyably. 



"All work and no play makes 
Jack a dull boy." So thought 
some of our students on the 
Saturday before Easter, and being 
ever ready to make use of an op- 
portunity for having a pleasant 
time with the young ladies, they 
got up an tw egg-eating," and spent 
a pleasant evening in endeavoring 
to keep several dozens of eggs from 
spoiling. They didn't spoil. 



Animi Cultus. 



Friday evening, the 27th, the 
last public exercise for the year 
was given by the Animi CuUus 
Society in the college chapel. 
The programme as read h\ the 
President, G. S. McCampbell, was 
as follows: 

DEBATE; 

Question; Resolved that the Bi- 
ble is necessary to prove the ex- 
istence of a personal God.

deserved to be.
