Somerset Merchant, After Lying Unconscious Here for Six Weeks, Expired Last Evening.

After lying unconscious for the past six weeks at the Memorial Hospital, Miller M. HUMMEL, a Somerset merchant, died at that institution at 4:30 o’clock last evening, aged thirty-six years. Mr. HUMMEL became ill with an abscess in the head seven weeks ago, and a week later spinal meningitis developed, resulting in his death.

Miller M. HUMMEL was born near Scalp Level on January 31, 1871, thirty-six years ago yesterday. He was the only son of Samuel and Sarah Miller Hummel, of Stoyestown, and was a brother of Carrie, wife of E. E. SWANK, of Pitcairn; Bertha, wife of L. G. HOFFMAN, of Jenners and Mary, wife of N. S. BARNETT, of No. 517 South street, this city. The deceased is also survived by his wife, whose maiden name was Annie SIPE, and by two children – Margaret, aged eleven years, and Anna, aged eight.

The remains were prepared for burial by Undertaker John Henderson, who took them to the HUMMEL home in Somerset this afternoon. The funeral will take place on Sunday, when the deceased’s pastor, the Rev. R. L. Patterson, will conduct the obsequies. Interment will be made in the Somerset Cemetery. Mr. HUMMEL was a member of the Modern Woodmen, of Somerset.

Miller HUMMEL was for a long time an employee of the Somerset Creamery when conducted by George S. LOVE, of this city, and when the Union National Bank was established in the Park building here he canvassed for the savings department for some time. After leaving Johnstown Mr. HUMMEL and other residents of Somerset took charge of the creamery.
