1851 - Snuff and Longevity

There is now living in the town of Corinth, in this county, a woman who has attained the remarkable age of 112 years. She is a pauper and an inveterate snuff taker, using on a average three boxes full per day with a prospect of continuing to do so for some time yet before her candle of life is snuffed out.
