"the poet of the Sierras," so
far recovered from a recent
illness which threatened to
prove fatal that he was able
to return with his wife and daughter
to his home on the heights overlook
Ing Oakland and San Francisco bay,
yet his friends entertain little hope
that he will ever be fully restored to
health. He is now in his seventieth
year. Previous to his last illness he
had been separated from his wife for
thirty years, but the danger of his
death happily reunited them, and now
the aged poet is spending the re

Weakened, his once keen eyes are
dim, his flowing hair and beard are

climbed the wooded hills to minister
to him declare there is little if any
hope-that it is merely a matter of
a few weeks when Joaquin Miller will
have been gathered to his fathers.
Ills ashes, according to his wish, will
be scattered to the winds from the
pyre in the hills back of The Heights,
which marks the last resting place of
his daughter, Maud, who died several
years ago. The reunion with his wife
may prolong his days, and the care
that his other daughter, Juanita, be
