IN LIFE'S MELLOW DAYS
W.J. Cole Celebrates His Ninety-First Birthday Pleasantly
W.J. Cole of South Town, entertained a half hundred friends yesterday afternoon on a trolley party of the lines of the Rockford Traction company. The affair was in honor of Mr. Cole's birthday, and the party was made up of relatives and neighbors, young and old. Mr. Cole was 95 years of age yesterday and with his good wife, who has seen 87 years, celebrated the day pleasantly. Mr. and Mrs. Cole are among the oldest residents of the city, having come here in 1893. Mrs. Cole was Miss Mary Goodman, and was united in marriage with Mr. Cole in New York Oct. 9, 1831. Rockford was in its infancy when they came here, and they have witnessed the changes in its appearance with deep interest. Mr. Cole has been a prominent and useful member of the community and has won and held the kindliest esteem and respect of all who know him. For many years he has been retired from the active affairs of life, but has never lost his interest in the events of the day, and with his good wife keeps up to the advancement of the times. He has supported the republican party throughout his existence and says he hope to live that he may cast a ballot for William McKinley in November. Mr. and Mrs. Cole are well and strong and have retained their faculties to a remarkable degree. Both are clear-minded and have escaped weaknesses which are supposed to be attendant upon old age. In heart and mind they are as young as ever, and are preparing for the celebration of their sixty-fifth wedding anniversary Oct. 9. They are a remarkable couple and many and sincere were the congratulations showered on Mr. Cole and his life partner yesterday. Their friends hope and trust that they may be spared to reach the century mark. Two children join with Mr. and Mrs. Cole in celebrating the happy event yesterday. They are T.W. Cole of this city, and Mrs. G.A. Hawks, of Salt Lake City. Mrs. A.S.T. Ogilby is a granddaughter.

SOCIAL SIDE OF THE CITY
Hallowe'en Still All the Rage and Duly Observed by the Young People.
Ragazza "Guess" Party Affords Much Amusement-Miss Bessie Lane Entertains--Some Coming Social Events Noted.
The younger set of Rockford society were never more charmingly entertained than at the "guess" party given by the Ragazza Club on Hallowe'en. The young ladies had chosen the Steward home on North Court street as the scene of merrymaking, and when the young men arrived after a tiresome search they found the club assembled waiting for the boys who were "dead sure they knew were it was going to be held." The guest were invited upstairs to remove their wraps, and as each one ascended e was surprised and pained to find himself upset by a trick step which he had unwarily trod upon, showering him with rice at the same time. In the rooms below the guests were pleasantly entertained with the usual Hallowe'en games, ghost stories, etc., to the accompaniment of a ghostly, ghastly light shed from swinging caldrons hung about the rooms, and reflected from white walls on which were grinning skulls, black cats, and other symbols of the weird and uncanny. Popcorn, cider and other refreshments appropriate to the holiday were served during the evening and the guests were truly sorry when the time arrived for departing. It was one of the cleverest parties given here on Hallowe'en and reflects great credit on the originality and ability of the members of the Ragazza Club. Those who participated:
Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Porter; Misses: Elizabeth Moffatt Palmer, Addie Stewart, Florida Manny, Katherine Barnes, Mae DeWolf, Florence Houston, Mamie Sherratt, Norma Starr, Frances Porter, Ednah Taylor, Helen Armstrong, Frances Brown, Helen Dick, Elizabeth Emerson, Bertha Dick, Bertha Maguire, Virginia Manny, Eva Manlove, Beth Coggeshall; Messrs: Burrill Treat, Joe Barnes, Melancthon Brown, Rob Porter, Fred Rutledge, Phil Smith, Fitch Goodman, Ralph Root, Phil Graves, Vernet Comings, Edwin M.

By Many Young People With Pumpkins and Ghosts
When a year from this time in the future, Miss Society in her library in a reminiscent mood takes a large leather bound volume from her book case and turns to "Events Which Happened in My Realm This Day and a Year Ago," she will find an account of a party which she characterized in red ink by the adjective, "delightful." The party was given Saturday evening by Miss Myra Grout, assisted by Miss Belle Dickinson. It was a typical Hallowe'en event, there bring plenty of pumpkins, corn in the husk, apples, chestnust, candies and other things without which All Hallows would be farce. witch fortune teller stationed behind a screen in one corner with an air of great mystery and a wand, profoundly elucidated the future of each guest, and a ghost drove everyone into spasms of fright when it walked at 10 o'clock. Hallowe'en games and clever tricks by the score made the evening pass rapidly. The following were in the dark when the lights were extinguished for the flashlights: Misses: Minie Beale, Gertrude Maxham, Ethel McEvoy, Nellie Shimmin, Edith Coyner, Annie Painter, Etta Grunewald, Myra Grout: Messrs: Nelson Maxham, Bert Giffen, Chas.

Prudence H. Talcott Hersey: REACHES 90 YEARS OF AGE -- FORMER WINNEBAGO COUNTY WOMAN CELEBRATES BIRTHDAY AT HOME IN BELOIT
Came From East When it Was a Village---Sister of Prominent Rockford People
Speaking of the birthday celebration of Mrs. Prudence H. Talcott Hersey, an old settler of Winnebago county, a sister of Hon. Wait Talcott and Mrs. Ralph Emerson, the Beloit Free Press of Tuesday has the following: Mrs. Prudence H. Talcott Hersey yesterday celebrated her nineteenth birthday at the home of her daughter, Mrs. A.B. Van Tassell, 824 Church street. The aged woman received her many callers during the day without fatigue and today is feeling as bright and cheerful as ever, the strenuous observance of her birthday having apparently no evil effect upon her.
Mrs. Hersey spoke brightly of her early life and experiences in this section of the country in the days when there were no white residents for miles around. Mrs. Hersey was born in Rome, New York, March 4, 1822. Her brother was a prominent civil engineer and made the survey for the first railroad from Albany, New York to Schenectady. Mrs. Hersey rode on the first train ever taken over the new road.
In 1837, Mrs. Hersey came west with her parents who settled in Rockton. She made the trip by boat from Buffalo to Detroit and from there to Chicago by wagon. Chicago was then but a hamlet, there being only a few houses located along the lake front.
When Mrs. Hersey and her parents came to this part of the country, there were no white residents for miles around. Her father built the first saw and grist mill to have it settlers used to haul their grist a distance of 100 miles to their mill to have it ground into flour. Mack, the fur trader, who married the Indian girl, Hononegah, was their nearest neighbor and Mrs. Hersey tells some very interesting experiences concerning them.Mrs. Hersey lived on the old homestead in Rockton until 1854 when she married Mr. Samuel Hersey. Upon the death of her husband she came to Beloit and has made this city her home since that time. Her brother, Wait Talcott, was one of the first trustees of Beloit college and continued to act as such until his death.
One brother of the aged woman is still alive. Samuel Talcott of Renick, Missouri. He is 94 years old, but is in a feeble condition and word of his death is expected at any time. Mrs. Hersey also has one dauther, Mrs. A.H. Van Tassell, and one son, Thomas Hersey, living in Dakota.
During the day, Mrs. Hersey received many callers and many remembrances of the day. Mr. and Mrs. Van Tassell presented her with a bouquet of 90 carnations and her room was filled with flowers sent by her friends. Mrs. Van Tassell entertained a small number of her friends at dinner in honor of her mother. The out of town guests were Mrs. Ralph Emerson and her daughter, Mrs. Thompson, of Rockford.
Mrs. Hersey is still very active and bright and although she is unable to get out of doors during the severe winter weather, she said that she would be glad when spring should come and she would once more be able to get out in the open air. Their nearest postoffice was Chicago and she often paid 25 cents postage on a letter. One time she paid 75 cents for three letters at once." [--Rockford Daily Register Gazette, March 7, 1912]
Wednesday afternoon, Mrs. Eugene Frey entertained nine young ladies in compliment to Miss Helen Johannsen, a bride of the week. In addition to the shower of gifts for kitchen use, many helpful suggestions were given the honored guest, and needles flew in preparing for her several household articles.
