Rosalia & Bertille went to church this morn. & Papa went out to Oscar Birkner’s.  This afternoon he went out in the woods.  Fr. Grootens & Frank Swindle were here this evening & looked at our new pigs, they said “they are sure nice.”  H.M. Hill was reporting the news to the Belleville Papers that the Hecker bank shut its doors.  I seen in the Waterloo Times that Miss Helen Keckritz & a Cowell from Red Bud had a collision & Miss Keckritz machine got on fire & was completely pushed off the road & all damaged, it happened between Red Bud & Waterloo, she & a few more friends were going to the Brickey School, when the accident happened.  I believe she has a new Whippet now.  Emmett Cowell of Red Bud, the store manager of there was fined $102 (he had no license) for buying furs of a certain kind.  Robert Basecher 19 of Red Bud & Miss Fern Gully 20 of the same place were married last week.  Dr. Fentor also of Waterloo was in a collision in E. St. Louis & Mr. & Mrs. Fenton & their niece was hurt seriously.  Henry Kessler of Hecker has just passed his 70th birthday anniversary & says he is going to withdraw from the Woodmen.

Papa went to the creamery this morning & got a can ful of skimmed milk for the little pigs.  This afternoon he went uptown.  Gus Klotz had there little baby girl christened last Sun. at Renneckers, they called it Dorothy.  The coffee man was around again this afternoon, but we didn’t take any, so he said he wouldn’t come any more.  It has been raining all day & this evening too.  I seen in the Belleville paper this evening that Walter Schilling son of Francis Schilling of Paderborn died this morning at 2 o’clock, the funeral will be Sunday afternoon to the St. Michael Church in Paderborn.  It was the baby, 3 months old.
