In 1896 he began to work for Branch and Callanan Contractors and Builders as a bookkeeper for $10 a week. The work, which included that of timekeeper for 150 men, found him on found job at 7 a.m. until 6 p.m. and sometimes as late as 11 p.m.

In 1897 Mr. Tremble went to work in the Adirondack National Bank as bookkeeper and teller for $10 weekly. Banking hours were an improvement to the man who watched Saranac Lake grow. He worked from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and was with the bank 23 yeans. He became cashier and a director and during this time saw the total resources advance from $150,000 to over $1,000,000.

He had also been High Priest of Wannetea Chapter, Royal Arch Masons.

(Mr. Tremble's obituary was delayed in reaching the Enterprise, as the octogenarian had sealed the details in an envelope to be opened at the time of his death by his nephew, H. Beaman Tremble, of Syracuse. Due to an unavoidable delay Mr. Tremble could not reach Saranac Lake until yesterday afternoon.)

Besides his nephew, H. Beaman Tremble, survivors include a nephew, Dr. George Tremble, of Port Chester, and a niece, Mrs. Alice Vosburgh, of Buffalo.
