Joaquin Miller's Ashes
Scattered to Winds
From Own Funeral Pyre
Oakland, Cal., Feb 19--Before a great crowd to-day the body of Joaquin Miller the "Poet of the Sierras," was cremated in Mountain View Cemetery.
The ashes of the poet were then borne to his own estate, "The Hights" located in the hills overlooking Oakland, where they were taken to the funeral pyre which the poet had erected years ago with his own hands. There the urn was broken and the ashes scattered to the breeze.
