THE DEAD LARRIKIN. KILLED BY CIVILISATION. NOT MANY MOURNERS EITHER. [Newspaper Article] — Truth — 10 January 1914

THE DEAD LARRIKIN.   KILLED BY CIVILISATION.   NOT MANY MOURNERS EITHER.   There is something very remarkable in the great change that has come over the Aus- tralian youth of late years, and the almost total extinction of that pest of Southern civilisation—the larrikin. Time was when one would encounter him in dozens on New Year's Eve, ready to pick a quarrel, for the sake of a little horseplay, with the first be- lated pedestrian who came along. Usually he and his companions were under the in- fluence of a pint of purge, and minus matches or cigarettes, or the time of day:   and any likely-looking stranger was levied on to supply the deficiency. If this weren't done with a good grace, the LARRIKIN AND HIS PUSH       would know the reason why, and woe betide   the luckless pedestrian who lacked tack in   dealing with the roysterers. But times   &n...
