Today is Mrs. Blackburn’s birthday.  Henry & family were all here for dinner today.  This afternoon, Papa, Rosalia, Bertille drove out to John McCarthy’s to get our lamp for the incubator that we bought at Strohd’s Sale & also got a 1/2 bu. apples for .75¢.  Papa spoke a few words to Wm. Rankin.  We also stopped at Frank’s and Hover’s.  Tonight Louis Kerobers are having a dance celebrating Kate’s birthday.  Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary are going.  We heard Mr. Fries shot his wife and then himself at New Athens this morning at 4 o’clock.

It is raining again this afternoon & is turning awful cold.  There was a truckload of apples going along here trying to sell them, when they stopped front of Lauts’ they couldn’t get back on the hard road any more, they backed up & forward & a good many was pushing but it wouldn’t go, they drove along that side till down by George Wagners, there they got on the hard road.  We took 1 bu. Ben Davis for $1.25.  They tasted alright, but they are awful hard.  Rosalia took 8 doz. eggs off and got .25¢ a doz.  We shelled some corn this afternoon.
