Almonte Gazette– April 16 1897-
It has been noticed of late, but more especially since the fine weather set in that a number of Carleton Place gallants have come to Almonte to see some of our young ladies. This is quite natural, of course, as Almonte’s superiority in that respect is so marked that it is generally acknowledged. (Author’s note–that is the Gazette speaking not me:))

One young man, whose trips are quite frequent, changed his route into town so that he would not be noticed so much. It proved a sad mistake, however. Before entering town he forgot to pull his overcoat around him, as any wise Almonte young man would have done; but he will know more In the future. A small canine saw the tails waving in the air, and, thinking it too good a chance to let slip, caught them and kept them.
The unfortunate young man had to walk around that night without his overcoat, and Sunday night was pretty cold. He now advises all the junction town young men to shun Almonte, as everything is on to them even the pups.
