We regret to announce the death of Mr. E. C. Ranno, which occurred at the residence of his brother, F. R. Ranno, in Leicester, Vt., on Monday, the 13th inst. Mr. Ranno was for a number of years a resident of this town, and was connected with the Western Union Telegraph Company as line repairer, and also had charge of the batteries at this office during the years that Leonard Read and E. G. Mason were managers. The past four or five years Mr. Ranno has held the position of superintendent of repairs and construction in the fourth district, with headquarters at White River Junction. This position, as well as all others held in connection with the company, has been worthily and acceptably filled. Although gradually failing, with consumption, for the past two or three years, still he did not give up his labors until some time in February last. He was a man highly esteemed by all who knew him, and his loss will be keenly felt, not only by his large circle of friends and relations, but also by the company and its employees, with whom he has been so long associated. The funeral services, conducted by the Rev. B. P. Wilder of Brandon, were held at Leicester yesterday at 12 o'clock. A delegation of telegraphers attended, consisting of Superintendent G. W. Gates, Secretary H. C. Sherman and J. N. Landon of White River Junction, Managers McGiff of St. Albans,, Bagley of Rutland and Holbrook of Brandon, Linemen McArthur of St. Albans and Lanery of Rutland, and E. G. Mason and I. W. Copeland, formerly connected with the company. The remains were borne to their last resting place in the West Salisbury cemetery by six of the above delegation, who, together with all the employees of this district, extended to the family of the deceased their sympathy in this their time of bereavement.
