Dingleton Lunatic Asylum

From the Aberdeen Weekly Journal, Friday, November 30, 1894:

A new arrival at the Border Counties Lunatic Asylum near Melrose was sent out with others to work in the grounds. After he had been working for some time, an old inmate, who had been watching him said "Unless you delve (dig) with the rake, and rake wi' the spade, ma man, ye'll no be lang here".
