Worked in the store all day. The telegraph line did not work well during the day, but was all right towards night so that I had a talk with the Frankfort operator, and and also sent a message for a traveling man. It began to rain towards night, and Irvie came up to the store and brought me my rubbers and umbrella. I received considerable mail tonight – a card from Prof. T.J. Risinger, and a circular of the College he teaches in.
