A Sudden Death.

Mrs. A. R. Glenn is stricken with Apoplexy and Dies in a Few Minutes.

On Saturday evening about seven o’clock the people of Cartersville were shocked by the announcement that Mrs. A. R. Glenn had died a few minutes before at her home in this city.

Mrs. Glenn was alone at the time. Her daughters, Misses Fannie and Sarah, and Miss Cooper, who is stopping with them for a few days, had gone out for a walk, leaving her in her usual health.

They had been gone only a short time when one of the neighbors saw Mrs. Glenn walk out of the garden to the back veranda and sit down in a chair. She soon saw that something was wrong and hurrying over found Mrs. Glenn struggling for breath. Some one was sent for a doctor and her daughters and Dr. Riddle answered the call, but he was unable to do anything, and she expired shortly after his arrival.

Mrs. Glenn has recently had several severe attacks of smothering from asthma, but no one anticipated any serious results. Her death is attributed to apoplexy.

Mrs. Glenn was a daughter of Judge Turner H. Trippe who presided in this circuit before the war. She has long been a consistent member of the Presbyterian church, and has a large circle of friends who were greatly shocked by her sudden demise. She leaves three daughters and two sons, all of whom were devoted to her, to mourn the loss of a loving mother.

Her remains were laid to rest at Oak Hill cemetery on Monday morning.
