Reading this synopsis of the Middleville “news” by an anonymous correspondent reminds me of the Social Notes (sic) column in the Carleton Place Canadian written by Agnes Dunfield of the Canadian staff. Colleagues of mine in the RCN who were from a large community continually pestered me for my copy of the Canadian simply to read that column which the sophisticated city folk could not get enough of!!
