Eggs and Butter Rise One Cent With Cold.

Cold which sent the thermometer to 13 below at 5 a.m. today, drove egg prices up a cent, the wholesale price going from 35 to 36 cents. Butter also advanced a cent today, to 37 for top creamery grades. Tonight is expected to be cold again, according to the forecast, with tomorrow slightly warmer. A temperature around 5 below is expected tomorrow. It was 24 degrees below zero in Duluth today.
