          John H.

S. Holmes Woods, of New Albany, Ind., officiating.   The burial will be made in the Lewis Creek cemetery.
          Mr. Glackman was the son of  Charles and  Agnes Glackman,  and was born in Shelby county Dec. 12, 1881; at his death he was aged 28 years, 11 months and 26 days.  He had always been a resident of this county where he followed the farming profession and was a young man of sterling qualities.  He was united in marriage with  Miss Lula Pope  Nov. 12, 1905, and the widow with one son,  Clark,  survives.  His mother and two brothers,  Casper and  Joseph Glackman,  of this county, also mourn his loss.
          He was quite a prominent lodgeman, being a charter member of the Lewis Creek I.O.O.F. and a member of the Geneva K of P lodge.  He had been a member of the Lewis Creek Baptist church for several years.  Mr. Glackman was known to everyone as a loving friend, a kind and indulgent husband and father and a man who was always true to his high ideals and principles.  There is genuine sorrow at his death.
          The funeral and burial arrangements are in charge of Stewart & Fix, undertakers.
