Today is a sale down by Lenzburg and Marissa.  George Wagner is tearing his shed down and is going to build up a garage for his machine.  John Kammler and Reuben are doing the work.  Papa & Rosalia went out to Henry’s all day.  They took 2 chickens along for dinner.  Bertille stayed home & ironed & patched.  It was pretty hot today.  Dr. Eckert’s father died from old age & heat.  Mr. Rennecker came over on the porch with us a little while.  Jacob Erle & John Wittenaur’s machine got smashed tonight.  Wittenauer’s car was standing by Eichenseer’s when Jac. Erle came along and stopped to, he bumped into and knocked it against the tree over on the sidewalk & then back in the alley.  Erle had a scratch on the chin.  His car was pulled to Red Bud on a wrecking car.  Wittenaur’s is standing in Eichenseer’s back yard.

Rosalia & Bertille washed, ironed, patched & baked cookies today.  Leona, Robert, Floyd were up this morning.  Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary came up this evening.  They got a letter today from Henry Keorber to come to a basket picnic Sunday at Rittemeyer’s woods.  Tonight there is a Public dance at Nick Schaefers barn.  There was a man at our house this afternoon, by the name of Mr. Sparks.  He sell the Wayne Feed but Papa wasn’t at home.  He was out at Henry’s with a guy from Belleville that wanted to buy a mule or the mare.  But he didn’t buy neither one.  Uncle Fred and Papa went up to the creamery this evening to see if they could get some cinders.  But they couldn’t have none right now, but maybe later on.  Aunt Mary was saying Bertha Wolf could die anytime now.  She got operated on for appendicitis and now she is awful bad sick.  They phoned and left Mrs. Jatho at Hecker.  I have noticed Edgar Herzog from New Athens and Miss Luetta Fanke of Lenzburg have their marriage license in the paper today.  He is 19 years old and she is 18 years old.  They go out playing music together.  They play the accordions.
