SHE WAS BORN DEC 9, 1839.
Splendid Interest Manifested in the Age
Qnastion Given in Last Week's News.
The News last week gave the
following little problem:
"A lady who died May 8, 1909
was said to be aged 69 years, 4
months aud 29 days; what was
the date of her birth?"
Answer: December 9, 1839.
Proof: If she had lived until
Deo. 9, 1909, she would have been
70 years of age. The birthday
before that, December 9, 1908,
she was 69 yeaas of age. One
month later, January 9, 1909, she
was 69 years and one month ot
age. In the same way, on. the
9th day of April 1909, she was 69
years and 4 months ot age; but
she lived 29 days more. Twenty
one of those 29 days put her out
to the end of April, and the other
8 days run her to the 8th day of
May when she died.
