MIDLEM, a village, in the parish of Bowden, district of Melrose, county of Roxburgh, 4 miles (S. S. W.) from Melrose; containing 185 inhabitants. It is situated in the south-western part of the parish, and consists of about fifty families, partly engaged in manufactures and handicraft trades, but chiefly employed in agriculture. The market-town of Selkirk is distant westward from the village about three and a half miles; and there is a weekly carrier to and from Edinburgh. The Associate Synod have here a place of worship; and a school on the parochial establishment is attended by about forty-five children, of whom those of paupers are taught gratuitously: the master, who instructs in the usual branches, has a salary of £21, and the fees.
