GOOD WORK BYRUSSIAN BOY
Nathan Miller Sets Himself What
Looks Like Big Job.
RECORD OF HIS ACHIEVEMENTS
DrlnRK Invnlld Father nnd Young
Slaters to America and Supports
Them While lie Goe
It In not an unuual thing for a young
lad to work his way thf ough school, but
whon that same lad supports an Invalid
father and two younger sisters it Is In
deed a rare performance. Nathan Miller,
a freshman at the Omaha High school,
has performed such a task during th
last two years, and though only 16 years
of ago, has met with success.
The early history of this lad Is full of
Interest as a struggle for an American
education and for his people.
At tho ago of 11, his brother, Dave
Miller, a tailor In this city, brought him
over from Minsk, Russia. Ambition,
studious and always looking ahead, the
youngster succeeded In getting a smat
tering of the English language by closo
homo study from the letters and papers
his brother had sent him while still In
llussia. Arriving In America he did not
have tho necessary money for admit
tance, but having a ticket straight
through to Omaha, he was allowed to
enter the country.
His first occupation was that of dis
patch boy for the Associated Press In
tho evenings. In the mejntlmo he had
entered Kellom school in the second
grade and diligently applied himself to
tho study of tho English language. Ho
received many a helping hand foe his
patience and his capacity for learning
soon won tho attention of his teachers
and In a short time, four and a half
years, at the' 'age of a little over fifteen,-
he had graduated. .
S (Mi ill for Pnrcnt.
In tho meantime he was staying wtth
his brother and' saving every- cent he
could lay his hands on. He had one
objcot In view to bring his father,
mother and 'sisters "over -to this gnvvt
land of promise. .In three years ho saved
enough money out 'of his small earnings
to send for his Invalid father, who was
crippled with rheumatism. One year
after his father arrived enough money
was again on hand to send transporta
tion for his mother and sisters. His
mother, a somewhat weak and fralt
woman, worried because' of the separa
tion from her family, became ill and
died Just three days after she had re
ceived her ticket for America. This
heavy blow almost caused thp young
man to give up hope. But his sisters
had arrived and the work necessary to
provide for them and his father kept him
continually on the Jump. He then added a
paper route to hla already burdened
shoulders and holding down both po-,
sltlons managed tojget along.
Slater Enter School.
Both of his sisters, Helena, now 14,
and Ruth, 10, aro attending Kellom
school as special students. The oldest
girl expects to pass Into the fifth grade,
while the ynunger expects to go Into tho j
In his high school work Nathan . Is a
good student. Though not of the brilliant
class, he is of that hard, patient, pluj
glng kind. ' Jlee-cpectj B or above In
all his high "school studies this" term
Nathan has one Idea concerning his
future education and that Is to enter
Harvard college and become a physician.
He has set his goal on entering an east
ern college and expects to enter upon
the completion of his high school course.
Those who know the lad aro more than
ever taken by his bright looks and will
ingness to do things.
With all the work on hand he still finds'
that he has a little spare time for pleas
ure. He wants to be an' athlete, special
izing In the mllo arid' twc-.mlle runs. Ho
came out for the high school team this
spring, but lack of experience kept him
from landing a place. While In the
Kellom school he was on the track team
for several years. "t.
LIvlnir with Brother.
At the present tlmo .he and his father
and sisters are staying with his brother,
1S21 North Twentieth street, while the
young newspaper merchant supplies the
money for food and clothing.
When asked It he wouldn't like to bo
like other boys and let up on work he
replied: "I would rather be doing some
thing; you see, I have been busy so much
of my life that when I stop working for
a short time I feel out of, place."
