OLDEST WOMAN SUBJECT. The death has taken place at Glasgow, at the age of 106, of Mrs. Mary Moore, who was the King's oldest woman subject. She was born on January SO, 1804, the daughter of an Irish farmer, whose ploughman she married in the course of time, much against her parents' wishes. She became the mother of three children, but they and her hus- band died many years ago, and she left Ireland for Glasgow about the year 18&t A precarious living by sewing, supplemented by parish relief, enabled her to keep her home in a one-roomed house, where she lived alone,. and where, until a few weeks ago, she was able to do all the housework and to read without spectacles. She became ill a few weeks ago, and was rsmoved to a hospital, where she died.
