—By the death of Mrs. Elizabeth Stillman, of Wash-road, Newbury has lost its centenarian, the old lady having nearly attained the remarkable age of 102, her birthday being in April. As we recorded a week or two since, Mrs. Stillman had recently sustained a double bereavement by the death of her two step-daughters, Miss Martha Stillman, aged 82, and Mrs. Pendela, 74. They died within a few days of each other, and were buried on the same day, and it is only natural to suppose that this must have been a severe shock to the aged lady, who although in possession of all her mental faculties, was in a delicate state of health.

Mrs. Stillman comes of a long lived family, being a daughter of Mr. Thomas Clayton, who died at the patriarchal age of 104, in King John's Almshouses, in 1846. Although living in stirring times, and under the reign four sovereigns, George III., William IV., George IV., and Victoria, hers has been a comparatively uneventful life. She had seen two royal Jubilees, that of George III , in 1810, and that of Queen Victoria. in 1887.

She was the second wife of her late husband, and there was only one son by this marriage, and he died 30 or 40 years ago. There are three grandsons and one grand-daughter living.

The funeral takes place in Newbury cemetery nest Saturday.
