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.
