«b»Alfred Miller Passed Away Suddenly Early This Morning. «/b»
Alfred Miller, the well known commercial traveler residing at 403 West Broadway, who has made his home in Winona for the past forty-five years, suddenly dropped dead in the dining room of his home shortly after arising this morning as he was preparing to go out upon the road. The physician who was summoned said his death was due to heart failure. Mr. Miller had been in his accustomed good health yesterday and was about as usual. About 4 o'clock this morning he awoke and complained of a pain in his chest. His wife used a warming application and he felt better. Later he got up and went down in the cellar and fixed the furnace, coming back to the bedroom to finish dressing. He then walked across the sitting room to the dining room when he dropped to the floor dead. His first attack at 4 o'clock had been one of indigestion and as he had always enjoyed good health his sudden death was most unexpected. Mr. Miller had been a resident of Winona for over forty-five years. He used to be in the grocery business with his father, but for some years had been a commercial traveler, representing Chicago wholesale grocery
houses. He is survived by his wife, three sons and a daughter. One other son, Clarence Miller, met his death while in military service in the Philippines. The three living sons are William Miller and Victor Miller of this city and James Miller, who is in the naval service. The daughter Evangeline is now Mrs. Ray Pooler of Austin. Mr. Miller was sixty-eight years of age. The funeral arrangements have not yet been completed.

While walking across the floor of the kitchen in his home, 403 West Broadway, early yesterday morning, Alfred Miller, a well-known commercial traveler of this city, was suddenly stricken withheart failuire and fell over dead.

Mr. Miller was in good health up to the time that he arose yesterday morning. About 4 o'clock he complained of a severe pain in the chest and began walking the floor, going back and forward from his room to the kitchen. When in the kitchen he was stricken and fell dead. Coroner Steinbach was called and he decided that death was due to heart failure.

Mr. Miller was sixty-eight years of age and was the father of the late Clarence Miller, whose death occurred while in military service in the Philippines, and he is also the father of William and Victor Miller of this city and James Miller, who is in the naval service. He leaves one daughter, Mrs. Roy Pooler of Austin in addition to these children, a wife also survives. The funeral arrangements have not yet been made.

«b»«i»Obituary published in Winona Daily Republican, Tuesday, January 29, 1908:«/b»«/i»
«/b» The funeral of the late Alfred Miller will probably be held tomorrow, Wednesday, afternoon at 2:30 o'clock from the family residence at 403 West Broadway. Word has been received from the son James Miller who is in the naval service, that he started from Portsmouth for Winona, and he should arrive here not later than tomorrow morning. In the event that he does not come the funeral will be delayed. but this is not expected. The other two sons, William and Victor Miller, as noted yesterday, are at home. Others who have come on to the funeral are the daughter, Mrs. Ray Pooler, and her husband from Austin, and Mrs. E. W. Soule of St. Paul.

Alfred Miller was born in Milwaukee in 1840, his father having been prominent among early settlers there. He and his father came to Winona in 1860. Mr. Miller saw active service in the army in civil war times. He enlisted on August 3, 1863, and was honorably mustered out on November 22, 1865. Mr. Miller's service was in the north and had largely to do with the Indian outbreak. He was stationed at different times at Pembina and Fort Assinoboina. He was one of the detachment that took to Mankato the bunch of Indians who were hanged at one time.

Another exciting experience of Mr. Miller in these days was when he was driving a provision wagon harnessed behind six mules and the mules broke thru thin ice when crossing a river. In rescuing the mules Mr. Miller got wetted to the skin, and there being no opportunity there to dry his clothes he was compelled to take them off and lie thru the night in his rubber blanket. It was to this experience that he credited his slight defness. His record thru the war was an honorable one.

On his return to Winona at the conclusion of the hostilities he found his father had started up in the grocery business and he became associated with him and so remained until the business was closed out.

In 1869 Mr. Miller and Miss Mary E. Henderson were united in marriage. They went out to Oregon in the west for a short time, but did not like it there and returned to Winona, making there home then at the dwelling at the southwest corner of Broadway and Wilson streets, where they ever since resided, so that it could almost be said that Mrs. Miller went there as a bride and spent her entire married life in the house. For some thirty years past Mr. Miller traveled for large Chicago wholesale groceries. He was a very successful salesman who was held in high esteem by his employers, and since the news of his death reached them yesterday they have telegraphed their condolences to Mrs. Miller and expressed their sorrow at death removing him from their service.

Mr. Miller during his long life was exceptionally free from illness. The circle of his friends and acquaintances in Winona was very large, and by all who knew him he will be sincerely mourned.

«b»43 Years of Railroading Come To An End As Glenn Murphy Retires
«/b»«i»By Kenneth Berg«/i»

Run No. 141 of the Chicago Great Western lines came in on time as usual Tuesday afternoon, but to Engineer Glenn A. Murphy it was nothing unusual, he had been doing just that for almost 43 years.
When Murphy climbed from the cab of his engine, he wrote the finish to one of the longest and safest careers that any railroad mand ever hoped to complete. It was his last run -- and marked the end of his 43rd year at the helm of an iron horse.
Residing at his home at 541 Nicollet avenue in north Mankato with his daughter, Murphy observed his 65th birthday last April. But he did most of his celebrating making his run between Mankato and Randolph, the run he made an usual every day.
It's a long railroad history for him, ever since he first climbed into a cab in the first year of the twentieth century. Until 1915 he mastered a passenger run but has been pulling freight cars ever since. "It may seem a dull routine for most people," quips Murphy, "but I have found it quite interesting. It gives a person a chance to think."
Probably the most amazing feat Muphy has accounted for is that he has a perfect railroading record, not having so much as an accident to mar his past. "The worst that ever happened to me is being caught in a snowstorm, " states Murphy, "and I've done that quite a few times. The worst times were back in 1907 and the Armistice Day storm of 1940. I was snowbound for quite a while but that can't be called much of an accident."
All of his efforts have been directed for the same lines, the Chicago and Great Western, and have seen work covering most of the southern part of the state. He spent several years on the run through Red Wing and the southeastern section and has traveled through much of the territory surrounding Fairmont, Jackson, Tracy and Pipestone.
Murphy was born on April 25, 1878 near Black River Falls, Wisconsin and spent part of his boyhood there. Later on he moved to Mankato and attended Pleasant Grove and Franklin schools while here. He has made his residence in Mankato ever since. One son, Bernard, is now a member of the armed forces.
"I've had my best days running through these parts," he states, "and am very sorry that it must end. I only wish that could stay on, especially so with the war still in progress, but an anniversary is always a good time to end things."
"Come to think of it, it has been quite a time, hasn't it?"«b»

First Sergeant Miller was killed at Labo, Luzon, in the Philippines on May 28, 1900.

Sergeant Miller was in one of the three Minnesota regiments of the National Guard sworn into the regular army after the outbreak of the Spanish-American war. Commanded by Colonel Joseph Robleter, Sergeant Miller's regiment was sworn in as the 12th Minnesota Volunteer Infantry. (although it was the first sworn in, 11 Minnesota regiments had served in the Civil War and thus it was called the 12th). That was on May 6, 1898. William O. Miller was also a member of the 12th, serving as bugler.

The regiment was sent to Camp Thomas at Chickamauga Park, Ga., then to Camp Hamilton, Lexington, Ky., but was later mustered out at Camp Mueller, New Ulm, Minn. That was in November 1898.

Clarence Miller, later re-enlisted, however, with the 45th U.S. Volunteers and became first sergeant of Company B. This regiment, along with 25 others, was trained for duty in the Philippines and embarked for Manila. The 45th was stationed at Caloocan, just north of Manila, on a line of defense extending east to the Mariquina river.

North of this line, on the east bank of the river, the towns of Mariquina, San Mateo and Montalban were held by armed insurgents estimated at up to 2,000 in number, and enemy forces were known to be operating in the Morong province to the eastward. A road from Montalban north to Norzagaray and a trail from that point through the mountains into upper Bulacan provided a means of communication between the insurgents of northern and southern Luzon. It was the object of the Americans to break this line and on December 26 a force, including a battalion of the 45th, was sent to drive the rebels from Matalban and to hold the mountain passes, roads and trails between that point and Manila. The expedition was completely successful. A Minnesotan, Private Alex Mattson, lost his life, however.

In February, the 45th sailed from Manila with an expedition under General John C. Bates, who had been given instructions to take possession of eastern Albay and the Camarines provinces. The 45th landed just east of the Bicol river and marching inland a few miles, occupied the town of Neuva Caceres. The insurgents fled to the mountains and towns were occupied with little difficulty but the country was infested with marauding bands of armed insurgents.

In the north, Daet was the center of activities. It was to this point that Company B, commanded by Captain Albert Steinhauser, formerly of the 12th Minnesota, was sent in March 1900. Captain Steinhauser arrived at Labo with 20 men of his company, including Sergeant Miller, on May 26 and found the town in the possession of a band of insurgents.

The Americans made short work of the rebels, but on the return of the detachment two days later it was attacked by a force of about 40 riflemen and over 100 bolomen, who attempted an ambush. Again the enemy was beaten off, but at the cost of three men killed. One of them was Sergeant Miller. Another Minnesotan, Corporal Norwin Johnson, was also killed. Wounded included Captain Steinhauser, Corporal Thorwald Thompson and Private Louise Narveson, all Minnesotans.

The regiment returned to Labo but was pursued and there besieged for three days, until reinforcements drove off the attackers. Among the 54 members of the regiment who lost their lives during this period, nine were Minnesotans.

Clarence Miller was the son of a Civil War veteran, Alfred Miller, and Mary Miller. Two brothers, Victor and James F., served in the World War, while William S. Miller, son of William O. Miller, the brother who was a bugler in the 12th during the Spanish-American war, is a private with Company C, 61st Battalion, Second Platoon, Camp Wolters, Texas, in the present conflict.

DIED-- After a painful illness of two days, on the evening of the 23rd inst. of congestion of the lungs. Mrs. Mary Amelia, consort of Mr. Frederick Veith, and third daughter of Mr. U. R. A. Lange, of this city.
The deceased was a member, in full communion of the Episcopal Church of this city, and by her very amiable and christian deportment, had gained for herself many ardent friends. Indeed it is seldom that we are called upon to record the death of one who possessed alike the qualities of a cheerful companion, a tender mother, a dutiful daughter and an affectionate sister.
May Almighty God, in whose hands are the issues of life and death, sanctify this deeply afflictive dispensation of his Providence to the spiritual good of her bereaved partner, parents, sisters, and brothers, and may they strive by prayer, and faith in a risen Redeemer, to meet her disembodied spirit in the land of the blessed. And may a kind Father in Heaven spread his wings of protection and care over those dear and interesting little children, who have been so suddenly bereft of their best earthly treasure, and bring them to meet her in heaven.
Th mortal remains were interred on Sabbath afternoon at 3 o'clock, near Mr. Veith's dwelling, 7 miles east of Quincy. Truly, "in the midst of life we are in the depth," yea, "there is but a step between me and death."
"God moves in a mysterious way, His wonders to perform, He plants his foot steps in the sea, And rides upon the storm, "Blind unbelief is sure to err, And seeen his work in vain, God is his own interpreter, And he will make it plain."
Our deceased friend had arrived at the age of 28 years, 2 months, and 6 days. 
Lange, Mary Amelia (I8707)
