Death at 107 Years
Mrs. Margaret ROBERTSON of Cooper Angus, Scotland, died recently, aged 107. She lived under three British Kings and one Queen. She talked with scorn of poor creatures who could not live over 80 or 90, which she declared to Sir Henry THOMPSON, the surgeon, was "nae age at a'"[no age at all]. The clay pipe was always in her mouth. "I've smoked a' my days," she said. It's had plenty of time to dae me ill, and it's never socht."
