Nonogenarian's Birthday. Miss Ann Beglen, the oldest Port lander in the town, celebrated her ninety-first birthday on the 12th of July, when she was the recipient of numerous congratulations and gifts. Miss Beglen still continues to re side with her neices at "Pioneer Cottage," where she was born. The house was built in 1845, when there were no streets surveyed. The builders faced the dwelling to the old gaol, which was the only land mark at that time in the vicinity. Miss Beglen still has a wonderful memory, and she entertained her friends with vivid stories of the early days.
