THE

GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE.

JANUARY 1891.

TWO PICTURES.

By LYNN C. D'OYLE.

THEN

OCIETY in Slush Street was mixed. It had its one clergyman,

its one (reputed) "gentleman," its one (palpable) idiot; one farrier, one baker, one cobbler, one shop, and one besetting sin; a church, a chapel, and a Chequers. What it had beside these did not (as our cousins say) amount to much.

The majority of the inhabitants were stricken with the worst of all evils that this frail flesh of ours is heir to; the hardest of all things to get out of one's system, and, worse still, an hereditary evil-handed down frequently to the third and fourth generation (and more); it has a knack, too, of running in families, like consumption-and in a multitude of cases the diagnosis is one and the same. Yes, they were a poverty-stricken community.

As this particular October evening wore drearily on, the slipshod (and some entirely unshod) children returned from school (and from what not), all sense of fun drenched out of their ill-clad bodies; the greasy lamplighter lit up the scanty lamps, a few children watching him as though they would give a kingdom (three buttons and a "jumble"!) to hold such a responsible position; and then the street became deserted—those in legitimate business had ceased to traverse it, and it was as yet too early for those whose traffic is less legitimate.

The wind tried hard to sweep the dirty street, and, although it was not raining, the high-pressure of a great city seemed to condense upon the roofs of the smoke-cured houses, and descended, drip, drip, dripping to the areas-there to breed all manner of ills.
