They say today is Joe & Lee Gregson’s birthday, I thought it was on the 10th.  Yesterday was to be the church picnic at Round Prairie Church.  I guess they had it, I don’t know, it was to be last Sun. but they postponed it on account of rain, but it was worse yesterday.  Papa went up to Hecker with the machine this morning to get some laying mash for the chickens.  Victor Eichenseer was here and looked at the valve in the tank in the basement.  Henry came up this morning too.  He said the roads weren’t bad only if you meet some one, he had chains on.  We sold 57 lbs. springs [chickens], 50 lbs at .20¢ and 7 lbs. at .18¢.  Papa took up this afternoon, and also 4 doz. eggs at .25¢.  It was raining all most all day.  We got 2 socks of laying mash so for now yesterday we found 21 eggs.  We patched stockings today while it was raining.  Rosalia went to get the paper this evening.  Miss Lucille Miller won the Chev. Roadster last Sat. night for having the most votes of the popularity contest.

Papa, Rosalia are painting the chicken houses this morning.  Mr. Theodore Klinkhardt of St. Louis was here a little while this morning.  He is Mrs. Pour’s father.  This afternoon Papa, Rosalia, Bertille, Uncle Fred, Aunt Mary went to George Heyl’s funeral.  It sure was a large one.  Quernheim undertaker.  They have a new hearse.  The funeral was so large that when the hearse was was driving in at the Round Prairie Church, there were still machines leaving the house yet.  People from all over, St. Louis, Red Bud, Waterloo, Hecker.  Mr. Heyl belonged to the Horse Prairie fire insurance co.  He was killed accidentally.  There were over 100 machines at the house and about 100 at the cemetery before the funeral cortege every came.
