"MILLAR--The Late Dr. C.F. MILLAR--His Old
Home Pays All Honors to Its Gifted Son--The Last Yearnings of His Strong
Nature Were to Die in His Loved California--In the "Democrat" of June 26th
it was chronicled that Dr. Chas. F. MILLAR and family had arrived
from Alaska in Seattle but that he was in such a enfeebled condition that
he could proceed no farther and was taken to Providence hospital. His death
on Sunday and the arrival of the body at Dixon on Tuesday was subsequently
announced in these columns. The funeral was held today (Wednesday) in the
presence of one of the largest congregations that ever assembled in Dixon.
Such scenes are always a picture of sorrow and some times of despair, but
penetrating the gloom on this occasion was the conviction more potent than
all the processes of reasoning that death is not a finality in creation's
work and that the soul does not perish even when the chords and keys that
gave it utterance are broken. The officiating clergyman was Father LALLY
of San Jose, by whom he was married, and the sermon of the eloquent priest
touched a responsive chord in the hearts of hundreds who were there to
drop a flower and a tear upon the casket of one they had loved and respected
as boy and man for over thirty years. It was such a beautiful and touching
tribute to the life and character of Dr. MILLAR, it was so full
of sublime thought and soulful inspiration that under its influence the
silver lining to the dark clouds became almost as radiant as the morning
sun. The contribution of flowers was so fresh and the blooms so choice
as to be worthy of remark even in this land of flowers where the bestowal
of the freshest floral treasures in abundance and the most favored way
of paying friendship's tribute. And after the mass and the sermon the casket
was reverently followed to the cemetery, where the last tribute of respect
was paid. During that brief hour Dixon was a town of closed stores and
closed shops. The people were around the open grave and as the casket was
lowered a moment's hush fell on the vast concourse, and only the voice
of the sighing wind whispered, "Good night, dear friend; some happy day
to thy glorified spirit we shall say good morrow." Dr. MILLAR was
born in Dixon January 9, 1876. He was the only son of the late Charles
and of Mrs. Mary MILLAR, who survives him. He began life on a farm
and was educated in the public schools, St. Mary's College and the state
university. After receiving his medical diploma he was a member of the
medical staff of the Southern Pacific hospital, under the late Dr. GARDNER,
for several years. In September, 1902, he was married to Miss Mary VAN
VRANKEN, who survives him. To them has been born one daughter, Ruth,
now five years old. Soon after his marriage he established an office in
San Francisco and soon acquired a lucrative practice. In 1905, he was appointed
chief of the emergency hospital. He entered upon the duties and obligations
which were imposed upon him by the position of honor and trust, with zeal
and enthusiasm. He found as his colleagues the master medical spirits of
San Francisco and they were quick to recognize his ability and high character
and the thoroughness with which he was equipped. Determined to justify
the confidence imposed in him, he applied himself diligently and intelligently
to the task of mastering all the details and the great work he was required
to perform or direct, with all the spirit and enthusiasm of which he was
capable. As a result, before the close of one year of his administration
he had earned the confidence of the public, the good will of the medical
profession and inaugurated reforms and improvements that made the emergency
hospital a model of its kind. He had the endorsement of all the newspapers
of San Francisco and during the long period when excitement was rife and
San Francisco was stirred from center to circumference with rumors of municipal
corruption it is significant that there was never a breath of scandal relating
in the remotest way to his conduct and management of the municipal hospital.
The important part he played during the dark days that followed the awful
tragedy of earthquake and fire can never be forgotten by those who were
an eye witness to his untiring labors and unselfish deeds. Once assured
of the safety of his mother, wife and daughter, he did not visit them for
days at a time, but devoted all his energies to the noble and heroic task
of alleviating the sufferings of those less fortunate. For weeks he did
not remove his clothing or sleep enough to recuperate his wasting strength.
Not once did he falter or waver in the discharge of his public duty. Although
he won the praise and admiration of the people of San Francisco, he was
apparently indifferent to it and never trumpeted the kindly things said
about him. It did not seem to occur to him that his work entitled him to
praise and credit. One duty done he proceeded quickly to the performance
of another. He was actuated by a lofty purpose and unfaltering persistence
in the discharge of a public obligation and it was this unselfish devotion
to duty that prematurely cut short his brilliant and useful life. Exposure,
privation and overwork planted the deadly germs that a few months later
developed into tuberculosis. Ill health forced him to resign his position
in 1907 and finally to abandon his practice. He was persuaded to take a
trip to Alaska. He located in Fairbanks and for a time a slight improvement
in his condition was noticeable and he concluded to send for his wife and
daughter and remain long enough to give the climate a thorough trial. He
soon began to decline again, but not until the winter was so far advanced
that there was no chance to leave until June. The family took passage on
the first boat out and arrived in Seattle on Friday the 24th, where the
doctor's mother was awaiting them. He was too weak to proceed any father
and was taken to Providence hospital, where he died the following Sunday
morning. Retaining his love for his native state, his one great desire,
when he realized that his struggle for life was hopeless, was to return
to California and pass away amid the scenes of his young and vigorous manhood
and of his early triumphs. No doubt it was this overmastering desire, this
fervent hope, that fanned the spark of life and sustained him during the
long and dreary winter when there was no travel over the ice fields of
the north, and nerved him for the final effort when the first boat of the
year left the Alaska shores for Seattle. What must have been his hopes,
his doubts and his fears during his last days, we can only conjecture,
but we are ready to believe that hope inspired him to the last, and it
seems pitifully pathetic that the dearest wish of his heart could not be
granted; that after the most trying part of his journey was over, almost
in sight of his native state, he should be denied the mournful satisfaction
of looking once more upon the scenes of his childhood and closing his eyes
in the last sleep of death amid the familiar and peaceful environments
of his old home. There is no work or phrase in any language that carries
with it the full significance of the word home. It is not capable of translation
or even of definition and interpretation. Is it any wonder that he so dearly
cherished the memories and imagery that cluster around its memory? Dr.
Charles F. MILLAR died in the prime of life, just as his capacity
for usefulness had been fully developed, and at a time when he had won
high distinction by hard study and intelligent and diligent application
in his chosen profession. He was endowed with all the attributes of mind
and character that are essential to success. He was a thorough Californian,
born and bred in the state, and he loved his native state with all the
intensity of his nature. This patriotic love of home was born with him,
indeed, it was his inheritance from ancestors who passed the best part
of their lives here. He was well trained, and well read in his profession.
He was a man of great energy and courage and sensitive of honor and unblemished
character. With all these qualities of mind and heart his success in the
medical world was assured. Nobody could associate with him without realizing
fully his many fine qualities and that he was a courteous and cultured
gentleman who maintained high ideals. While quiet and unassuming, he possessed
virility, energy and vigor and was industrious and ambitious in the performance
of his duties. His life was all too short to fill out the measure of its
promise, but he furnishes a noble and worthy example, a rich incentive
for young men who are filled with a desire for a higher and better life
and an ambition to accomplish something noble and useful. He was an occasional
visitor in Woodland, but his acquaintance here was not sufficiently wide
to make his life and death of any special local interest and it is therefore
not necessary to lift the veil that shuts from the public view the private
grief in the family circle. But there are those who knew him and a few
to whom his death is a personal loss and it is not inappropriate to say
that their hearts go out in sympathetic love to the lonely mother who lavished
upon her only son all the wealth of a mother's affection, to the heart-broken
wife whose loss seems irreparable, to the sweet little flower and only
daughter, whose young life was closely twined about his heart, but who
is too young to fully realize the awful solemnity of death, and to understand
what it means to lose the loving companionship and trusting faith of a
father. May they have the faith that looks beyond the grave and inspires
us with the hope and confidence of immortality. The memory of the virtues
of a dutiful and devoted son, a loving and affectionate husband and father
is a legacy that will enrich them all. He is buried where he was born.
His grave is hard by the spot where his cradle was rocked. He sleeps where
he wished to sleep, in the bosom of his beloved Solano home." Source:
