An Aged Missouri Twin Dead.

W.N. Slavens of Bellflower was 86 -- His Brother Still Lives.

Montgomery, Mo., Oct. 31-- W.N. Slavens, one of the oldest twins in the county, died at his home in Bellflower. He was 86 years old. His twin brother, H.B. Slavens, lives in Lowery, St. Clair County, Mo. The picture of these two Missourians appeared in the metropolitan papers a few years ago as the oldest twins in the country. They were born at Elkhorn, near here, shortly after Missouri became a state, and have spent almost their entire lives in the state.
