The many friends of Dr. J.P. Miller were saddened to hear that he passed away, Tuesday, at Erick, after suffering from a stroke of paralysis, note of which was made in News Democrat of last Friday.

Dr. Miller was born in North Carolina. He lived in Panhandle, Texas, just before moving to Cheyenne, soon after opening, where he lived until a few years ago he moved to Norman and only recently went to Erick. No truer, better Christian man ever lived than Dr. Miller. For twenty-five years he was supedrintendent of the Methodist Sunday School at Cheyenne, and never missed if he was at home, even though many times he had been out to see patients most of the night. He belonged to the Masonic order and when some one asked him how it came he was so well versed in Masonary, he answered he memorized it riding his pony “Blue Dog” to and from seeing his patients. It is said that many a poor person received an envelope from Dr. Miller at Christmas time with a receipted bill for the account he had against them. He was one of God’s noblemen and his memory will ever be treasured by his host of friends.
