About 5 o'clock Thursday afternoon, James S. Slavens, a teamster, who lives at the Everly House on Wabash avenue, was found in his buggy in an unconcious state at the corner of Third street and Third avenue. A stranger drove him to the police station, and he was afterward taken to the home of Patrolman Robert Loyd at 1010 Mulberry street, where he died a short time later.
Coroner Tabor was called and after making an examination pronounced dead due to apoplexy. The body was taken to Hickman's morgue.
He is survived by two brothers, three sisters, a wife and four children. His family lives in West Terre Haute. Mrs. Loyd, at whose home he died, is a sister. He has not lived with his wife and children for some time.
