AN EXTREME OLD AGE
By S. C. Turnbo
It is remarkable how long some people do live while others die while they are young. This is natural for it is well authenticated that the longevity of some people are much greater than in others. But we have neither time nor space to discuss this matter here. Among the centenary people of the state of Arkansas, is an account of one given me by Mr. Rila Mullen of the name of Tilden Hubble who lived in Fulton County. Mr. Mullen said that this man was one of the first settlers in this part of Arkansas. He came there when the Indiana inhabited the country and he lived and hunted with them a great deal. He had a son whose given name was Mac. Mr. Hubble lived until after the close of the war between the states and died at the age of 105 years and was buried in Fulton County.
