Wilton F. Akarman, cornetist, and member of the Australian Musical Millers, died on June 3, at San Antonio, Tex., from Bright's disease and heart failure, aged nineteen years. He had been in this country only twenty-four weeks, coming direct from Australia. He was the son of Billy Akarman, late stage manager of Harry Rickard's Australian Vaudeville Theatre, and Pearl Akarman, now Mrs. Pete Miller. Billy and Pearl Akarman will be remembered as popular variety performers in this country twenty years ago, particularly in California. In earlier years, Mrs. Akarman had been known as Little Pearl, of the aerial act, Lola, Jeanette and Little Pearl. Relatives and friends may address Mr. and Mrs. Miller at P.O.
