Brought Back Bunting
From Dear Old Delta
The bright red bunting and the
scalp locks of the Delta business
men are nailed high up on our
Totem Pole. On Tuesday last
we returned from Delta with the
whole works. The ancient bunch

A real old dead game sport
from the chivalrick south might
criticise Paonia's method of lull
ing Delta to sleep with the idea
that they had the game won up
to the end of the eighth inning
and then in the first half of the
ninth going out and making
eight runs without so much as
saying "with your leave." It
looked like a cold blooded con.
game, and appeared to be dally
ing with the tcndcrcst sentiments
of the Delta people.
At any rate, we won the game,
and did it handily. Delta people
will tell you that they had the Pa
onia crowd buffaloed for six inn
ings but that lull in the noise mak
ing by the band and the Paonia
boosters was because th.-y did

The truth of the matter is how
ever, that it was understood that
Delta should have all the glory
out of a poss'blc victory up to
the last inning, when Paonia
should go to the front and take
whatever was necessaty to score
a win.
It was a great game, at that. It
would be impossible to make
mention of all the brilliant plays
short of a six column write up.

much about Delta. KuUy USO
Paonia people were there, and in
proportion to their size, made

the game, but they were evidently i
afraid to make any demonstration
for fear of the very thing which
happened in the ninth inning.

Headed by the Paonia band,
the jolliest crowd of excursion
ists which ever went out of the
town journeyed to Delta on last
Tuesday, and no crowd ever re
turned after a leng day of strei u
ous sightseeing and vigorous
sports in betteer spirits with them
selves and with the world at large.
They had cleaned up the Delta
Business Men's ball team and de
pleted the Delta larder to a can
siderable degree and that was
honor enough for any one day. A
very few of the excursionists
came back on the regular train,
and a few in automobiles, but the
main crowd remained to the .5c
banquet and $1 ball, and returned
on a special train at 11 p. m.

time set for all to work at the

Hie Long and Bril
liant Career.
Edward VII., king of the United
Kingdom of Great Britain and Ire
land, and of all the British Dominions
beyond the Seas, emperor of India,
ss his full royal title reads, was born
In Buckingham palace. London, on
1 November 9. 1541, and was the second
child and first son of Queen Victoria
■ end the Prince Consort Albert. He
was christened Albert Edward, and at
his very birth was given an imposing
list of titles. He was at once created
prince of Wales and by virtue of that
1 dignity he became also knight of the
garlzr. As heir apparent to the Brit
' ish throne he succeeded to the title
of duke of Cornwall and its emolu
» menta, and as heir to the crown of
, Scotland he became great steward
’ of Scotland, duke of Rothesay, earl of
J Carrlck. baron of Renfrew and lord
of the Isles On September 10. 1549.
* he was created earl of Dublin, this
> title being conferred on him and bis
heirs In perpetuity. Among the other
, titles and commands held by Edward
, were duke of Saxony, colonel of the
Tenth hussars, colonel-ln-chief of the
Rifle brigade, field marshal of the
British army and field marshal of the
German army.
The prince received a most elabo
rate. broad and carefully planned edu
cation. At first he was under the
charge of four private tutors, and sub
jequently bis education was directed
Kingsley. In order to give him a
taste of college life, he was sent for
by Baron Stockmar and Charles
i one session to the University of Ed
inburgh. for one year to Oxford and
for four terms to Cambridge. During
these years he acquired a wide gen
eral knowledge of the arts and sci
ences and became quite proficient In
modern languages.
In IS6O the prince made, a tour of
the United States and Canada and
the next year he Joined the British
army at Curragh camp. Ireland. In
1862 he set out on his travels again,
this time visiting Jerusalem and other
places of biblical Interest. His com
panion on the trip was Dean Stanley
of Westminster.
Edward’s public life began In Feb
ruary. 1863. when, as heir to the
throne, he took his seat in the house
of lords. On March 10 of the same
year he married Princess Alexandra
Caroline Mary Charlotte Louise Julia,
the eldest daughter of King Christian
IX. of Denmark. Her beauty, grace
1 and charming manners at once gave
her a popularity in Great Britain that
has continued unlessened throughout
her life as princess and queen. In
1875-76 the prince made an extended
tour through the Indian empire and
was received everywhere with lavish
and magnificent hospitality, the native
• rulers seeking to outdo one another
in the gorgeousness of the entertain
ments provided for their emperor.
On tht* Ocatli t’f yu-.vii Victory. January
2*2; 11K»1, Edward succeeded to the throne,
j The coronation wa* *ct tor June 20. 1902,
and all preparation* lor the event had l>ceu
completed when disquieting rumor* of

the king’6 11! health, which i * been
current for several days, w r e con
firmed by the postponement of the
ceremony. It was announced that tho
king waa suffering from perityphlitis,
and on June 24 be underwent an op
eration. After some weeks of the
greatest anxiety he recovered, ant
the coronation took place August 9.
During the long years of his prlnew
hood Edward's public duties consisted
solely In the office of representing the
royal family at all manner of publle
events, and he performed these du
ties well. But the deadly monotony
of such a life was too much for the
vigorous man, and he found relaxa
tion In amusements that frequently
gave rise to scandals and that gave
the world a wrong impression of hie
real character. He was especially
fond of the theater and among hie
boon companions for years were ac
tresses and actors. Also he devel
oped a great liking for Paris and often
visited that gay capital Incognito.
But all this, as has been said, waa
only his relaxation, and after coming
to the throne his conduct always wae
so circumspect that not the most cap
tious critic could find any fault with It
Edward was always a liberal patron
of art and science and manifested a
lively interest in exhibitions, chari
table Institutions, the housing of the
poor, agriculture and other matters
that concerned the welfare of his sub
jects. He assisted in promoting the
Royal College of Music, and the Im
perial institute was due to his sug
gestion. While prince of Wales he
carefully abstained from participation
In politics and from all action that
could be construed Into preference of
one party over another. He culti
vated the most friendly relations with
public men. whatever their opinions
might be. and he was equally cour
teous to all. At peculiar crises of pub
lic opinion his visits to Mr. Gladstone.
Mr. Bright and other prominent mem
bers of the liberal party did much te
counterbalance in the public mind
Queen Victoria's preference for her
Conservative ministers. It was *aid
that Edward always Inclined to the
Nationalists in Irish politics, but con
stitutional restrictions prevented bln
showing his preferences in relation te
the Emerald Isle.
As a diplomat Edward was unexcel
led among the monarchs of Europe.
His influence was always thrown te
the side of International peace where
compatible with national honor, and
his advice and example had a steady
lng effect on all Europe. He looked
with amused tolerance on the va
garies and extravagances of his neph
ew. the emperor of Germany, but oc
casionally that ruler exasperated him
to such an extent that he could not
refrain from giving him some stern
advice. Such admonition was not re
ceived by William in a submissive
spirit, and once In a while there were
sensational rumors that the peaceful
relations between the two countries
were about to be ruptured.
The development of the king's char
acter In his later years was especially
gratifying to the nation. In addition
to the love of his people, which be
had always had. he gained their ad
miration and respect. They had the
utmost confidence In his good judg
ment. as was amply exemplified dur
ing the late crisis over the budget,
and they were always sure he would
do the right thing at the right time.
To Edward and Alexandra were
born six children. The first. Prince
Albert, duke of Clarence, died in 1892.
