LUCINDA SHARPE ON HATING SCHOOL [Newspaper Article] — Worker — 11 June 1892
LUCIHOA SHABPE ON HATIKG SCHOOL Why do children h&te school? Well, just tell me first why shouldn't they ? I can'ti for the life of me see why they shouldn't. I did myself. And so will mine, if they have the chance which they won't if I. can help it. School as it is run iB simply ajlave barrack into which the little toddlers are marched ,for the best part of the day, there to be driven to the examination market by a dreaded person age armed with a cane and crowned with a mark book. My word ! People seem to me to be just a little daft who are as tonished at all children disliking school and preferring to stay out. At any rate, they've got pretty short memories, for we all did it. Ah, yes, that's all right, people will say, but what would become of the children aL they had no schooling, see what a dif lere~ace-between us and those who hadn'b any— and so on for yards.

To use a famous illustration : Give it enough percentage and Capital wffl n^ a elaver or waug^ie opium.

New Zealand Shearers. FBOM the Huwke's Say (N.Z.) Pott: ? It appears to us that the Pastoralists* Union of Australia, haa sworn a deadly feud against the shearers of that continent, ebe why their endeavours to induce New Zealand shearers to go over for the coming season I The shearers in New Zealand would indeed be a heartless lot if they were to consent to go over and take the bit of bread out of the men's mouths who have been looking hungrily forward to earning a few pounds at the shearing this year.- The unemployed are wandering over 'Australia in hundreds, and amongst them shearers are plentiful enough. Why, if the pas torahsts are cot absolutely bent upon de priving the Australian shearers altogether of the means of earning a crust, do they ask that, with hundreds of men starving at their gate*, the well-to do working man of New Zealand should be asked to do his -fellow-man-a-crael-wrong?
