The news of the death of Mr. Tom Slavin at his home on the Richmond road last Friday evening came as a sorrow to all who knew him. He was a good citizen and led a quiet, inobtrusive life, his interests all centered in his home, his wife and his intimates. The esteem in which he was held by his friends and neighbors was evinced by the kindly and untiring attention which they devoted to him during his illness.

He was a devout member of the Presbyterian church and ten years ago he and Miss Jennie Kavanaugh were united in marriage in the old Paint Lick church, and they have lived almost in its shadow ever since, devoting a large part of their interests and thought to it and their pastors. His response to charity was always ready, willing and liberal and in all his work and thought his devoted wife joined with him.

The deceased was born Nov. 18th, 1869. He was a son of Benjamin and Ella Kennedy Slavin. He is survived by three brothers, Dr. J. L. Slavin and E. K. Slavin, of Danville, and J. W. Slavin, of Texas.

Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at his late residence and burial afterward took place in the Paint Lick cemetery The flowers that mark the new made grave are mute reminders of love and sympathy. --Central Record.
