How the Poor Live. (Continued from October 5.) CHAPTER IV. (continued) [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 16 November 1889

How the Poor Live. (By GEORGE R. SIMS: Author of Dagonet Ballads, &c.) (Continued from October 5.) CHAPTER IV. (continued) Few persons who have not actual experience of the lives of the poorest classes can have any conception of the serious import to them of the Educa- tion Act. Compulsory education is a national benefit. I am one of its stoutest defenders, but it is idle to deny that it is an ( Act which has gravely increased the burthens of the poor earning precarious livelihoods; and as- self preservation is the first law of nature, there is small wonder that every dodge that craft and cun- ning can suggest is practised to evade it. In many cases the payment of fees is a most serious difficulty. Twopence or a penny a week for each of four children is not much, you may say; but where the difference between the weekly income and the rent is only a couple of shillings or so, I assure you   the coppers represent so many meals. The Board now allows the members to ...

(Feos ovn owN CORRESPONDETr.) We. had I weddiigb here lately. in the ranks of the; upper crust of society.. At this'wedding the old custom of throwing slippers was freely indulged in, but I don't think the 'delicate bride expected to have old hob-nail boots shod with iron thrown at her head; neither did I expect that aiiy of the bride's friends would indulge in the ilisplay of this roigli sort of amorous artillery, but they did, or, at least, some did do so, and hurt the' fair damsel con siderably, giving her ; lnasty 'lheadache, and no wonder. This, or such sport, can only take place in a place bordering on ULTIMA THULE, or to a; "PrincesS of Thule," as -William Black would say. When I heard of this unlovely catastrophe I wondered whether any of the citizens of UrLTIMA THULE ever drearmt of the origin of this aplurently savage' custom of slipper-throwing at weddings, and as I am presumptnons enough to assumie that many .'of the slipper-darting army of ULTIrsaA THULE do not know how...
