"Canaan is a small, but notable, town of fewer than 1500 inhabitants; it is one of three or four towns of its size in New Hampshire that is the home of a weekly newspaper. This weekly newspaper, too, is distinguished beyond what probably is appreciated by the majority of its local readers. Its editor could boast, were it not for his abhorrence of any least thing whic {Begin inserted text} {Begin handwritten} {End handwritten} {End inserted text} smacks of [vainglory?], of illustrious contributors, of comradely regard from publications of nation-wide repute, of respectful esteem from prominent people to whom the Reporter goes, week by week, in distant states. Its candle is set in a humble candlestick among the New Hampshire hills but for more than three score years and ten it has given light to all who are in its house, and far beyond."
"A small town that has a newspaper in it [is?] fortunate," said Mr. Edward A. Barney, editor of the Canaan Reporter , discussing the ins and outs of country editorship; "humble exponent of the fourth estate though it may be, it is a desirable possession for a town of this size."
"May I illustrate that claim by an actual occurrence? Some years ago a prominent manufacturing pharmacist of Jersey City wrote to Canaan asking for a copy of the town's newspaper. A copy was sent him together with an invitation for him to come up and look us over and to stay with me while he was here."
"He came, was pleased with what he saw, purchased an estate on Sawyer Hill, and eventually made of it one of the show places of Canaan . He has spent a lot of money here; his coming to us has been one of the greatest benefits the town ever received."
This name also appears as Arvin, Arven, Arwine, Erven, Ervin, Ervine, Ewing, and Irving.
