Of the 53 names here reponed, 3 were over 90 years of age,' viz.: Mrs. Hannah Pacey, of Dexter, 95, the oldest; Mrs. Ann Eliza Gorton and Mrs. Bridget Tiernan each credited with 90 years; 21 were over 8o and under 90; 18 between 70 and 80; 10 between 60 and 70; 1, Capt. Randall, 49, being the youngest on the record. The most remarkable thing noted in this record is that contrary to the common rule, the number of deaths between 80 and 90 is greater thai for any other decade. The last report for a full year showed 31 between the ages of 70 and 80, to 23 between 80 and 90, while this year the figures for 9 months are 18 between 70 and 80, to 21 between 80 and 90. Is this a confirmation of the belief that the average duration of life is meving steadily upward ? Last year's report showed 4 90 and upwards - full year - to 3 this, although the extreme age this year is one greater, viz. : 94 last to 95 this year. The average age of all here named is 72 years nearly. All of which is respectfully submitted. Wm, H. Lay, Necrologist. TAKEN BY A. H. HOTCHKEN.
