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.

Papa is hauling coal again today.  They took Mrs. Louis Armstutz over to East St. Louis Hospital, last Friday afternoon.  Mr. & Mrs. August Klotz have a little girl since Sat. afternoon, they now have 2 girls.  Rosalia took 8 doz. eggs to the store & got .25¢ a doz. for them.  The Young Men & Ladies Sodality of St. Augustine’s Parish was to meet in the new school hall tonight, but was postponed on account of rain.  Papa finished hauling coal today, he has 210 bu’s. in the coal cellar now.  He paid $18.90 for 210 bu’s.  We found 33 eggs today.  The ambulance that went through Hecker last Sunday, was that they took a man to the Red Bud Hospital, he got hurt while working by Smithton on the Gulf Pipe Line Co.
