Mr. Millard, who was a farmer at Condah, was married twice, and was the father of 22 children. For more than 40 years he took a leading part in pro- fessional athletics, and over a period of 11 years won many races.

In 1889 he won the 220 yards race at Stawell, was third in the Stawell Handi- cap and qualified for the final of the Easter Gift, in which he gained fourth place.

The funeral will be held at Condah
