William Miller Killed We are again called to chronicle the sudden and untimely death of an exemplary citizen of Steuben Township. Mr. William Miller, residing on the farm of the widow of the late J. V. Johnson, east of Hedrick. Between 8 and 9 o'clock Tuesday morning, Mr. Miller was turning his horses out of his stable lot into a field. One of the animals was blind in one eye and when deceased attempted to turn it back, instead of turning, it ran directly towards him and knocked him down, He fell backwards, the back of the head striking upon a stone and crushing the skull. He was rendered unconscious and died in a few minutes. He was probably 50 years of age, a member of the Presbyterian Church, being a deacon in that denomination. He leaves a wife and three children and a large circle of relatives and friends. The funeral will be held this morning at the family residence at 11 o'clock, Rev. Mr. Williams, pastor of the Presbyterian Church at Crawfordsville, officiating. Interment will probably be made in the West Lebanon Cemetery. In addition to being a Member of church, deceased was also a member of the Knights of Pythias of West Lebanon, and the interment will be under the auspices of that order.
