We all went out to Henry’s butchering today.  When we came home we started washing.  We brought our old talking machine along up & played a few pieces on it.  Henry butchered 2 hogs.  Emil also helped.  Leona & Bertille scrubbed the kitchen floor yet, after we were through butchering, we were done about 11:30.  We got a little Christmas tree and took it along home.

Papa was up town this morning, & this afternoon made a business trip out to George Sensel’s & then down to Red Bud.  The St. Louis Diary quit giving the people skim milk now.  We traded our old red Christmas tree today for a green one.  There are 3 schools going together & give a play at the Bob White Grange on Christmas Eve, one school being the Fairview School which Reuben Kammler teaches.  O.J. Maul is giving a Grand Opening Dance at Breezy Hill tonight.  Elmer Kammler’s boy Billy has the chicken pox & also Perry Laut.  There is to be a Euchre and Box Social in Tiptown on Dec. 28 Sun. night.
