Notes or transcript:  “A writer comparing the local newspaper with the city papers, defending them from the facetious and ill-natured attacks of the latter, says: ‘Well, you may poke fun at the country weekly as you will, but I fail to see why the fact that ‘a resident of Unionville has bought the place of another resident of Unionville and intends to move into it’ may not be as well worth chronicling in a local paper of Unionville as the fact that a dog of a famous actress died on the steamer is worth a two-column picture and a half-column description in the city daily. Blamed if I can see much difference between a poodle dog editorial in a city daily and one about a big cabbage just laid on the desk of ye editor of a country weekly.”
