At the hour of 3:20 a. m. yes
terday, the spirit of the Rev. Dr.
Wilbur C. Miller, the beloved
and pastor of the Congregational i
church in Jennings, was loosed f
from the moorings of the mortal t
and wafted into the presence of i
the ruler of the universe, there a
to receive the rewards of a well A
spent life. Dr. Miller had been b
here but a short time, and his '

bush the occurrence of Jennings' de- a:
the structive conflagration, upon at
itlul which occasion he took an active et
nost part in the subjugation of the D
lnea llamnes and toward saving all that C
it of might be saved from the devour- in
lock ing element. Undoubtedly this H

100. usefulnae:s. About two weeks til

Slupposed was la grippe, but all fir
was nledical aid failed to give any t
re- permanuent relief, and he grew te
flar st.,dily worse, until it became Fe
till- plainl evident that his life was in
)i- surel' oelbbin. away. He tilled su

ac: truth that lhe was inevitably suf- he

Sing the Armour Institute. In daug
'u1884 he1 was called to the pastor M.
r of a church at Shabona, De Kalb moni
1- Co., Ill. He always considered neral
that his greatest work was done Mesa
at this place. Heo remained as cond
k pastor for five years. In that the ii
time the church had grown view
. wonderfully and Mr1. Miller had
so woven his life into tl.,e lives of
the people that when the'urgent

it was very hard for him to see
that his duty was to leave
