The Saving Habit.
Every person who is aide to work
no matter what his or her calling,
should start a bank account at the
earliest op|x>rtunity. This applies just
as truly to the small wage earner or
the farmer as to the manufacturer or
the merchant.
A bank account is the strong bulwark
that checks the advances of want and
misfortune and in their stead puts cheer
and sunshine.

Death Of L. C. McGrew.
Lester Clarke McGrew died at his
home in Delta August 17 at 10 p. m.
He was bom in Sheridan, lowa, Dec.
17, 180*1, later moving to Omaha, Neb.,
where he was married Nov. 10, 1887.
From Omaha he went to Denver and in
1894 came to Delta where he has since
resided. He leaves a wife, two sons
and two daughters to mourn their irre
pairable loss.
Thus, in brief, is the life history of
one of Delta’s best known and foremost
citizens, a man who was a dynamo of
energy and thrift and who championed
every move looking to the advancement
of the community in which he resided.
The esteem in which Mr. McGrew was
held by the people of Delta, as well as
throughout the county, was forcibly
illustrated by the large concourse of
friends that followed the mortal re
mains to their final resting place in the
Delta cemetery. It was one of the larg
est funerals ever held here, the line of
carriages being almost a mile in length.
Services were held at the family home
Sunday at 2 p. m., conducted by Dr.
Frothingham, assisted by Dr. Darley.
Mrs. Seaton, Welland JefTers, Joseph
Pregent and Mr. Remington compos
ed a quartet that rendered special
music. Dr. Darley read the scripture
lesson and offered prayer, after which
Dr. Frothingham delivered brief but
beautiful remarks, bearing on the life
and services of the deceased and the
hepe of all for immortal life beyond the
grave. He sj>oke words of consolation
to the sorrowing family and commend
ed them to the God of us all, who is
always the greatest comforter.
Following these services the l»ody
was removed to the hearse, members of
Mesa lodge No 84 Knights of Pythias
acting as escort, they being proceed’d
by members * f the Woodmen of the
World, which organization also attend
ed in a IhxJv. At the grave the Knights
of Pythias burial service was carried
out and all that was mortal of a good
citizen, kind husband and loving father
was consigned to the earth from w hence
it came.
The casket was almost completely
covered with beautiful floral offerings,
tendered in loving memory by different
orders end numerous friends.
Card of Thanks.
We wish to extend our heartfelt
thanks to all who kindly gave us help
and sympathy during the illness and
affliction which has visited us ami for
tl e many beautiful floral offerings.
Kspecially would we make mention of
our neighbors at Kckert who gave such
unselfish aid in caring for our crops on
the ranch. Yours sincerely,
Mrs. Lol'isk McGkkw anp Family.

Two Divorces Granted.
The divorce case of Archie 1). Brown
vs. Ivii L. Brown was heard in Judge

and habitual drunkenness. The jury
found in favor of plaintiff and divorce

ed the children, three in number, to the
defendent and granted her $25.(X> per

New Real Estate Firm.
The land and emigration firm of
Fitzgerald, Dermody & Co., of Omaha,
Nebraska, will open an office in Delta.
They are one of the big land and emi
gration firms of the country with
branches at Colby and Goodland, Kan
sas and Burlington, Colo. F. G. Myers,
a member of the firm, is alre *dy here
accompanied by his wife. They have
rented the J. Mason Lee property on
Garnet Mesa and will establish their
permanent home in Delta. Mr. Myers
1 will have charge of the firm’s business
in the Uneompahgre valley and in
choosing Delta as the proper place for
headquarters he put in force a rapidly
growing conviction that once the Gunni
son tunnel is completed, here will be
the center of the greatest growth and
development. Another reason for
choosing Delta is its close proximity to
the great Hotchkiss, Paonia, Cedaredge
and Eckert fruit districts. The firm
represented by Mr. Myers is a big ad
vertiser and spend money with a lavish
hand in making eastern people ac
quainted with the districts it is pushing.
Delta is glad to welcome the new firm
and its good looking representative and
trusts that many easterners will be
brought here to add their monev and
energy toward the development of this
great country through its instru
Superintendent Harding Arrives.
Prof. G. L. Harding, of Home City,
Indiana, and who has been selected by
the school board as superintendent of
Delta's public schools for the ensuing
year, came to Delta the first of the
week and has been busily engaged in
perfecting preliminary arrangements
for the opening of the schools. Prof.
Harding is no tenderfoot, having been
a resident of Colorado thirteen years,
ten of which were spent in Boulder
county, four years as su|H?rintendent
of the Longmont schools and six years
as county superintendent. He served
three years as principal of the schools
at Breckonridge. The professor grad
uated from the University of Michigan
in the class of 1574. He is a square
built. active kind man and we look
for a brisk, business administration of
the schools.
