Mr. W.C. Glenny, one of our old and esteemed citizens, quietly passed away yesterday afternoon about three o'clock. He had been in feeble health for some years, but for the past week he had failed rapidly and his death was not unlooked for. He was about seventy five years of age. For many years he was engaged in the agricultural implement business, being a member of the firm of Glenny & Gladden. Afterwards he engaged in the same business by himself until his failing health compelled him to retire. He resided on a small farm just east of the fair grounds until a few years ago, when himself and wife moved into the city and have made their home since with their daughter, Mrs. S.C. Howe. He was a kind and genial man, a loving father and a devoted husband and was universally respected by all who knew him. The sympathy of many friends will go on to the bereaved widow and daughter in their sad affliction.

The funeral service will be held from the residence of Prof. S.C. Howe on tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock.
