    one of the prominent citizens of Sidney, O., representing the second ward in the city council and an influential factor in democratic politics in Shelby county, is a native of Sidney, bom November 14, 1876. He is a son of W. M. and Mary (Haslup) Toy. Daniel Toy was reared at Sidney and attended school here, afterward teaming the printer's trade, entering the office of the Sidney Daily News on the day of its first issue. For four years Mr. Toy worked as a printer and afterward, for a couple  of years, was in the employ of the Sidney Steel Scraper Company, finally entering the shops of the Philip Smith Company, where he learned the machinist's trade and is now foreman of these same shops. Mr. Toy married Miss Emma Louise Pfefferle, a daughter of Carl Pferfferle, and they have one son, Harold. Mr. Toy comes naturally by his mechanical skill, his father and his grandfather having been identified with mechanics and manufacturing during the greater part of their lives. He has always been interested in public matters, a strong democrat in his political belief, and has  served as a member of the Shelby County Democratic Central Committeeand also has been a member of the Sidney Democratic Executive Committee. When D. H. Wamer resigned as alderman of the Second ward,
in order to become the director of public service, in January, 1912, Mr. Toy was immediately selected to fill out Mr, Warner's unexpired term and has proved a useful member of the city council.
