"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 MILLAR 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: The Woodland Democrat, 30 June 1909.
