Rosalia & Bertille had house cleaning upstairs today.  Washed curtains.  There was a man here this morning wanted to know if we had any wells or cisterns to clean.  We sent him off.  Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary were here this morning.  He wanted to get some jack to raise the house a little.  Aunt Mary said there was just such an awful crowd down at Wiegands, they took up collection .25¢ a piece.  They took in $9.00 and some cents.  Bill Herzog, Lawrence Schultz and another fellow, furnished music.  Ted Eichenseer’s were cooking apple butter today.  Rosalia took 5 doz. eggs to the store & got .25¢ a doz.  I noticed in the paper in Hecker news that, Adam Eisenhaver and H.M. Hill were called into probate court at Belleville Sat. to testify as witnesses to the last will of Benhardt Buss.  George Gambach dug a new well on his premises.  There is about 5 or 6 ft. of water in it.  A St. Louis baseball team arrived here Sunday & showed Hecker boys how to play ball by defeating them with a score of 7 to 2.  Hurrah! for St. Louis.  Charles Boll is the oldest man in Hecker.  He celebrated his 82 birthday last Sunday.  Mr. & Mrs. Roy Kunz are the happy parents of a baby boy born to them last Tuesday, Sept. 9.  She was formerly before marriage, Miss Marie Rausch of Hecker, Ill.  They now live at Smithton.  Clifford Sthaleber [Stahlebher] was over a little while this evening.
