OVER A CENTURY. - On the Thursday before Christmas, the death occurred, at the residence of her grandson, Mr. John PAUL, Rock House, of Mrs. Sarah PAUL, who, last April, attained to the ripe age of 100 years. Up till about a year ago deceased had been able to get up and go about the house, and could see to thread a needle or read a book. Since them she has been confined to her room, and notwithstanding the kind attention of her relatives, life has dragged heavily with her, causing her at last to long for release. Deceased for many years resided in the village of Isle Abbotts, where her unfailing kindness and willingness to do anyone a service procured her many friends and much regard. She was the oldest member of the Fivehead and Isle Abbotts Baptist Church, and at her express desire she was on Thursday buried in the chapel graveyard at Isle Abbotts.
