Note that the last name Dilley is spelled differently in various articles -- Dilly, Dilley, even Dille.
Mr. Dilly came to Creston about two or three years ago and together with his father bought the Harry Taylor store, which they have conducted ever since. They had the postoffice in connection with the store. He was a young man about 31 years of age and was a man who made friends with all whom he came in contact and that he should be a suicide was almost unbelievable.
His mother went to Chicago immediately after getting the news. We have endeavored to get the particulars in the case, but to the time of going to press were unable to do so, further than he had taken his life about ten o'clock Tuesday morning. No arrangements have been made for holding the funeral at this time.
