I have seen the paper that Arthur Matlock from Waterloo have a little boy at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital, it was born last Monday.  Nick Schaefer’s second youngest daughter, Maggie, was taken to the hospital last Sat. night and was operated on for appendix.  Henry Meng got his finger smashed between 2 large rocks, he now has his arm & fingers in a sling.  The St. Louis baseball team played here Sunday with Hecker the score was 8 to 15 in favor of Hecker.  It is reported that Clem Parker lost a valuable horse last Sat. from heat.  Bertille was up town and got the paper this morning.  Mrs. Gene Meckler from Waterloo, they took her to the Hospital at Red Bud.  We baked cookies, washed, ironed, cleaned upstairs today.  It is Albert Cleveland’s birthday today.  Yesterday it was their wedding anniversary 18 years married & tomorrow night they are going to have a dance.  Emma Braun brought Mrs. Rennecker home this evening.  Papa & Rosalia went down to Geo. Vonderheit’s this afternoon and got the spring buggy home, what Papa bought for .30¢.  Steve Rennecker and his wife were over this evening a little while.  Roman Meng came over and told us that our colt was out, something was chasing it, I guess a dog.  It ran through the wire fence, it has a cut on the breast & one on leg behind.  We put some lard & turpentine on it right away.  Mrs. Rennecker said that Mr. Dehn ain’t no better yet, no changes she said.  Dr. Eckert’s father is awful bad sick too.

Today is John Limbach’s sale.  Papa went out to Henry’s and got a load of wheat, then he went to Waterloo to the mill & then went out to John Limbach’s sale.  We get our daily paper in the evening from now on with the buss.  Instead of morning mail carrier.  Papa never bought nothing at the sale, everything high priced.  Albert Rittemyer was here this afternoon trying to sell brushes of all kinds.  But we didn’t buy any.  Margaret McDermott call up & told us that our cousin Mary May, Martin May’s oldest daughter died & will be buried tomorrow morning at 9 o’clock at the Tipton church.  She was to get operated on appendicitis and tonsils, they gave her ether & she never came too anymore.  They say she had a sweetheart Joe McArthy.  She is 18 years old.  Wheat is .78¢ this morning.
