James Slavin, aged seventy-eight years, residing at No. 110 Third street, retired at eight o'clock Saturday evening. He did not arise as usual, yet this fact created no apprehension on the part of his family. At about half-past nine last evening his wife went to his room and discovered that he was dead. Coroner Kerr was notified and will hold an inquest. It will be seen that a period of twenty-five hours elpased from the time he retired to the time he was discovered.
