Today is Church Holiday.  We all went to first mass this morning & then came home & ate breakfast & dinner.  Uncle Fred, Aunt Mary & Emil were all here, after that Oscar Birkner’s family came to get the wash stand.  Emil was here to see about butchering.  Henry & family went to Waterloo today.  We all went in to Belleville, Aunt Mary took some eggs along in & sold 3 doz. for .35¢.  We bought some toys for the kids Christmas presents.  The Hecker people were all mostly presented in there.  Ike Napiers moved today from the Knapp place to Ed. Meng’s again, Sensel & Pannebecker Blackburn moved him back, he was only up there about 3 months.  Adam Eckert’s birthday is today.

Rosalia went to church this morning.  George Reheis brought our lime dust spreader back again.  Today is Mrs. Oscar Birkner’s birthday & also chicken supper in Paderborn.  Papa hauled a load of coal this morning & this afternoon took some tile to Belleville for Fr. Grootens & then he brought another load of coal along back.  Rosalia took 8 doz. eggs off & got .25¢ a doz.  She bought 2 1/2 yds. of table cloth for $1.65.  I seen in the paper that Ike Napier moved his family & household goods to a farm by Paderborn, one of Knapp’s places last Thurs.  Ike is going to work for Knapps.  Mr. & Mrs. Martin Fritsche celebrated their golden Wedding last Sunday.
