The death of Louis D. Miller occurred this morning at 3 o'clock, at his home, 1622 Bank street. Mr. Miller had been bedfast since July 10. He had been unable to work for about a year before that date.

Mr. Miller was a native born son of Keokuk, being born in this city March 28, 1859. He was the son of Jacob and Frances Miller, who were among the very old pioneers of the city.

He learned the trade of molder, which he worked at for several years. For seventeen years, however, he was a faithful employe of the DuPont powder works at Mooar. He was in their employment when failing health compelled him to give up work.

In October, 1892, Mr. Miller was married to Miss Elizabeth Kraus, of Keokuk. To them were born three children, as follows: Kathryn, Helen and Albert, all at home. Mrs. Miller died February 2, 1903.

October 27, 1903, he was married to Miss Anna Wenzel, of Warsaw. To them were born three children, as follows: Margaret, Louis and Joseph, all at home. He is survived by his wife and all the children named above. He is also survived by two sisters,Mrs. Frederica Schmied and Mrs. Elizabeth Schneider, both of Keokuk, and Jack Miller, of Havre, Montana.

Mr. Miller was a member of Mary's Catholic church, and one of the church's staunchest supporters. He was also a member of the Catholic Mutual Protective society. He was a good citizen, a man of strict integrity and a faithful worker, as is attested by his long years of employment by one firm.

Funeral will be held at 9 a. m. Wednesday, from St. Mary's church.
