Bertille was at church this morning.  Papa & Rosalia went to Belleville again today with the eggs.  Last week they took Mrs. Owen Fahey & Mrs. Rose Crook to the hospital in Red Bud.  Mrs. Fahey is to get operated on appendix & Mrs. Albert Crook has heart & kidney trouble.  There was no funeral in the Hecker Catholic Church during 1930 church year.  There was a man here at noon and wanted to sell some rugs & 3 fur coats, but you had to make your price on them, we didn’t take any it looked kind of suspicious, like it might of been stolen goods, the man was from California, and has intended to go to Canada & Montreal.  There were 2 men in the car.  Papa & Rosalia sold 18 doz. eggs for .40¢ a doz. to some customers in Belleville.  Ed Meng was over a little while & took a look at our hogs.  He wanted to know if Henry still had his for sale, so Bertille called out to Henry’s & found out.  Papa went over to Meng’s & told him & also took his post hole digger back again.  The paper says 20 above zero tonight.

Rosalia went to church this morning.  Papa hauled 2 loads of coal this morning.  They took Delbert Meuth son of Nick Meuth to the hospital one day last week, where he will be operated on appendix.  Mrs. Lorberg is staying with him in the hospital.  Papa hauled 5 loads of coal this afternoon.  Henry called up and wanted to know if Rosalia could take Leona to Waterloo to the doctor this afternoon, so she took her in.  Leona went out to get the mail yesterday afternoon & she ran back to the house & stumbled & cut a big gash in her chin down to the bone.  The doctor put a piece of plaster over it to heal, if it don’t heal shut that way then she will have to get it sewed together.  I seen in the Times, that Clyde Crowe & Walter Schmidt left last Tuesday for Ada Groves, Iowa to visit with Schmidts relatives.  We found 3 dozen eggs today.
