IT is with deep regret that we record the sudden death of Dr. N. H. J. Miller, at Harpenden, on Friday, January 12, from heart failure. Dr. Miller had worked for many years at Rothamsted; he began under Lawes and Gilbert, having gone there in 1887 direct from college, and continued up to the day of his death. His chief work was the measurement of the amount of the combined nitrogen brought down in the rain, and of the amounts of nitric nitrogen washed out from the soil. Both measurements were indispensable for the settlement of important controversies in agricultural chemistry.
