-------
MONTGOMERY, Ala., Oct. 8. Isaac Frazier, a negro 106 years old, died here. Some eight or ten years ago Isaac, who had worn glasses for many years and was then complaining of his defective vision, received what was called his second sight and was able to see almost as well as ever although up to his death he occasionally used glasses. After having passed his 95th year, the old man was married.
