Alex Miller Jr., expired suddenly at his home in the Packard district last Sunday morning. While he had not been feeling well for a few day he had been up that morning, done his chores, killed a chicken for dinner and gone to the house. Death came with swiftness and the exact cause was not known. A coroner's inquest was held Monday afternoon being presided over by Dr. C. Henderson of Lind, but as the testimony was inconclusive the jury brought in a veridict of death from causes unknown. So inquiry was made as to whether th cause might have been liquor poisoning, but this was not established.

The case is a very sad one. Alex was a capable and hard working young farmer. He leaves a wife and four young children. Another child, a boy lost his life just a few months ago, when his clothing caught fire from some burning weeds. The father grieved greatly over this loss.

Alexander Miller, Jr., was born in Kolk, Russia, Jan. 2. 1894 and was thus just over thirty years of age. He came to America with his parents in 1908, locating first at Tacoma, Wash. In 1910 the family moved to Ritzville and settled on a farm near here. On Dec. 27, 1915, he was married to Maria Katherine Arnst. He leaves besides his widow and four children, his parents Mr. and Mrs. Alex Miller, Sr., two brother and four sisters.

The funeral was held Tuesday afternoon at the Zion Congregational church, conducted by Rev. Juilius Houn. The chirch was filled and the services were unually sad, because of the almot tragical circumstances. Burial took place in the Ritzville cemetery.
