$2.60. Paid 20c for a peck of nice apples for cooking. Yesterday morning when the train pulled in it looked like the coaches were comfortably filled, 215 found room somewhere and at Brownsvalley a few more got on board, at New Market 250 more got on and at North Union a few more were taken on. There was a gentle rain falling most all night, and a good portion of the day. Clouds are breaking away at 9 p.m. The weather man of the signal service says the Mercury will go down to 40 degrees tonight. The shoes for Eva had to be returned, she could not wear them. OTT REDDISH got hurt in a runaway buggy turned over. Conference is in session at Rensallaere. We will be apt to have a new preacher. kbz
