Guy Slavens, connected with cattle firm of Cathin & Slavins of Concordia, committed suicide at Concordia yesterday noon. He was 25 years of age, well fixed financially, and on good terms with his wife, and no cause is known for the deed.

Atchison Daily Globe, (Atchison, Kansas) Tuesday, March 28, 1899.

Note: Yes, the surname was spelled two different ways in the story, and presumably the proper spelling is Slaven based on his Ronceverte, West Virginia home.
