Mrs. Steele was born Nov. 14, 1877, at Escalante, Garfield County, Utah, to Lewis and Catherine Kes ley Deuel, pioneers there. She was third daughter in a family of seven, and among the first half dozen babies in the new settlement. She grew up learning to do all the tasks in a pioneer household, such as making tallow candles, starch from potatoes, dye from rabbit brush, carded wool for spinning, spin-ning, braided straw for hats, stripped strip-ped cane for molasses, milked cows and other farm chores. While working in Panguitch at the age of nineteen, she met and married Johhn E. Steele, on April 8, 1897,, in the Salt Lake Temple. Her wedding trip included a ride from Escalante for six miles in an open wagon, then another fifteen miles on the mail sled over deep snow. There Mr. Steele met her with two horses and a red plush side saddle. They rode on into Cannonville for the first night, were up at 3 a. m., and went into Tropic, where he had a two-seated sleigh parked, and headed for Panguitch. Almost there they were met by two of his brothers with a black-top buggy, and went on into town in style. From Panguitch they travelled to Richfield in a Stude-baker Stude-baker wagon, and caught the train into Salt Lake. Came to Delta in 1910 For the first eleven years Mr. and Mrs. Steele lived in Panguitch, then moved to Clearfield in 1909 There Mr. Steele, always a pioneer, heard of the glowing prospects in west Millard, so on Feb. 10, 1910, the Steele family arrived in the town later to be called Delta, where Mr. Steele was a merchant for many years. Mrs. Steele has long been active In church and community affairs. She was a counselor in the first Delta Second Ward Relief Society, and is the only living one left of that group of officers. She is now the oldest member of the ward. She is the mother of eleven children, child-ren, eight of whom are living, and helped in rearing six grandchildren, when her oldest daughter died.

Criddle has proclaimed the closing of wells diverting water from underground sources beginning be-ginning with November 1, 1957, and ending April 1, 1958, as provided pro-vided by law. All persons owning or having control of, any artesian or pump well, or wells, in this State are required to close, by plug, cap, valve, or other mechanical mech-anical device or by repairs, all wells except those providing water for benefical use. Beneficial use during the above period does not include irrigation. It is also provided that modification of said ORDER may be granted upon showing to the State Engineer that a compliance therewith will cause partial or complete failure of the well. The closing s eason of underground under-ground water has been proclaimed pro-claimed in the interest of conserving con-serving the underground - water supply and to provide a maximum max-imum quantity for the next year's use. As a result of last year' CLOSING ORDER there was made available during the past season additional water which materially helped to mature crops. Strict obedience to this CLOSING ORDER will further increase the supply. Disregard of the CLOSING ORDER is a misdemeanor and, If necessary, the State Engineer will bring action in the district court to enforce the law. Fall Insect Control Plow under or clean up croplitter this fall to do away with many Insects In-sects which otherwise would survive sur-vive the winter. Insect control for 1958 already has begun on many progressive farms. It is largely carried on as a normal farm operation. Thus there is no extra cost for pest control benefits. Plowing, spraying, and harvesting at the right time to control pests is "good procedure." Fall clean-up about the home grounds and small gardens, both vegetable and flower gardens, often will reduce carry-over of insects.
