In a recent number we published a paper from the pen of this distinguished writer for the agricultural and horticultural press. We have had no notice of his death from his friends, all the knowledge of which we find in the enclosed newspaper paragraph:

" Mr. T. B. Miner, for many years publisher of The Rural American, with varying success at Clinton, Oneida Co., N. Y., and of late an occasional contributor for agricultural journals, died at his residence at Linden, N. J., June 5th, in the 70th year of his age. Mr. Miner was the author of works on bees and poultry, which enjoyed considerable popularity in their day".
