church. The 'Rev.' Paul Hardin, Jr.,
pa tor of the church, assisted by Rev,
W. A. Rollins,, presiding elder of
the district, officiate'!.
Mr. Miller was bo in in Wythe
County, Va. on Feb. (i, IMS. Just
after the close if the War-'Between
the States, re came to this section
with his mother, brothers and .:sti
his mother, brothers and sisters.
They first located in Cashiers Valley,
but shortly after moved to Waynes
ville.. His leather and harness shop is the
oldest business llrm in Xbe town.
It has been operated continuously for
more than fifty years. Since taking
up his residence here Mr. Miller and
his family have been prominently
identified with the reliinous, civic, and
social activities of the town. .-. "..-'. j
Mr. Miller had served as aldeimnnj
of the town at '"'.different times and)
had held menvixMship on the school ;
board for a period of years; j
Hp was a consistent member of the!
iTAthnHic .hnrrh for: fia vears and I
was the oldest member of the Sunday
schcool, which he attended regularly
durimr the entire time of Hs connec-
tion with the church. He served for
manv vears as secretary and treas
urer of the board of stewards of the
church and was active in the Men's
Bible Class until his death, having
been present as usual the Sunday be
fore he was taken ill.
The principles of his Christian
faith were exemplified in his daily
life: Pure and simple justice he prac
ticed at all times. He1 was absolute
ly without malice. He did not con
demn the faults and weaknesses com
mon to humanity, but always with a
charitable defense for those who . fab-.
tered, inspired others with a spint
o, frvonp. Modest, conservative,
he represented traits of character,
that made him one of the finest citi
zens of the community.

Mr. Howell received the following
notice from'. Hasliing'on I'eci ntly:
"Tlie attention of a'l postmasters is
(ailed to the fact that the so called

There were .several .individual'.- here

Chain letters for a dol'ar each. Most
of them were from A.-hevil!c and cited
