A blast from the North bore down on this section Monday night, sending the mercury to 26 at 7 on Tuesday morning. The weather was cold all day. Ice formed Monday night and fruit buds were seriously damaged, it is thought. This has been the coldest April for 20 years. In the west on Monday, the mercury was down nearly to zero. -- Democratic Advocate, April 24, 1897.
