    A resident of Quarryville only since April 1st, Amos B. Miller, formerly of East Drumore, was summoned to the Great Beyond Saturday afternoon.
    Of late months he had not had robust health but was able to be around at his labors.  Saturday morning he had been digging garden at his home on West State Street, and his heart, and his heart giving him trouble he came into the house and medical attention was given him, but of no avail.
