      Funeral services for Aaron Mills, ? ? ? who passed away Thursday noon at his home, were held Sunday afternoon at the Methodist church in Wilder.  Interment was in the Wilder cemetery.
     Mr. Mills was one of the most prominent poultry financiers of the state.  He was born in Georgetown, Ill., September 2, 1853, and moved to Oregon when a  young man.  He married Miss Jessie Cook of Newberg, Ore., and came to Idaho in 1918.  The couple located on a 40-acre tract two miles northwest of Wilder.  They have made their home there ever since.
     Mr. Mills and his wife developed a thriving poultry farm from a sagebrush waste.  A fire in 1923 destroyed their home, but they rebuilt and had one of the most up-to-date poultry farms in the state.  Surviving are his widow and son, Harold, who was a partner in the poultry business.
