Record of Coming Events.



DEATH OF CAPT. MILLER. We regret to record the death of Captain John Miller, which occurred at his residence, Kersland," Meliden Road, on Monday last. The deceased gentleman, who was 63 years of age, had been laid up for two or three weeks past, although it does not appear to have been realised generally that he was seriously ill. Some months ago Capt. Miller met with an accident to his hand, since which time he does not seem to have enjoyed good health He had been confined to the house two or three times recently, but on this last occasion pneumonia supervened, and he passed away on Monday afternoon. Coming here from West Kirby, deceased had resided in Prestatyn about three years, and during that time had associated himself with many public matters. Last year he played a prominent part in organizing a Christmas Tree for the children of Prestatyn, and it was intended to hold the event again this year. During this winter Captain Miller had formed a local company of the Boys' Brigade, and this was just getting into a flourishing condition Last spring he was appointed as one of the overseers of Prestatyn, and held the office until the date of his death. Capt. Miller was an ardent politician, and took much interest in the Conservative cause, being a prominent member of the Constitu- tional Club. Last Easter he was elected a sidesman of Christ Church. The funeral took place on Thursday morning, the interment being at Smithdown Road Cemetery, Liverpool. The cortege left the house at 10 a.m., Mr Holt Miller being the chief mourner representing the family. The funeral procession was headed by between 20 and 30 members of the Boys Brigade (which deceased had taken much trouble in organising) in charge of Sergeant Glass, accompanied by Lieut. L. N. Williams, and Mr E. T. Williams. Then came the Chairman and several members of the Urban Council, members of the Constitutional Club, and the general public. t) A short service was held in Christ Church where the Vicar officiated. The hymn "Brief life is here our portion was sung, and at the conclusion of the service, Mr E. T. Wil- liams played the Dead March in Saul." The remains were then conveyed to the station, and proceeded to Liverpool by the 10-54 train. There were several magnificent wreaths on the coflin, including one from members of the Constitutional Club. The funeral arrangements were carried out by Mr E. D. Jones, and the mourning orders were executed by Messrs Williams & Richards.
