Today is Easter Sunday.  But Nobody came.  So in the afternoon we drove out to Aunt Mary’s for supper.  We just got home and got the chicks put away and everything done, and it just poured down rain, thundering and lightning.  The way we heard Kean’s found Mrs. Agnes Hirst death in bed this morning.  If she would have lived until May 20, she would of been 69 years old.  She is to be buried Wednesday afternoon, services at home and then to the private cemetery.  There is to be a dance at (inlegible) Schaefer’s tonite.  It is his birthday but we were not invited.

Papa and Rosalia went out to Henry’s this afternoon, Henry is sawing wood.  Mr. Jeff Payne and Virginia Alterkruse were married Wednesday, way it states in the paper.  Albert Monike was surprised last Sat. evening, when a number of his friends gathered at this home to join in the celebration of the anniversary of his birthday.  He was 52 years old.  Among those present were: Nick Schaefer, Frances, Rosalia, Lorinda, Maggie, Clarasia, his daughters, Mr. & Mrs. Frank Birkner, Henry Volkman, Robert Probst, George & Clarence Rettinghouse, Jerome and Wilford Cortner, Robert Lippert, Raymond Ambruster, Ed Cortner, Ben Kuhn, August Frisch, Clarence Pabst, August Millman & Roy Kammeron.  The elderly persons played cards while the young folks enjoyed the evening dancing.  The bachelor’s band consisting of harp, accordion & organ furnished the music.  Mail Carrier Schmidt’s niece died at Red Bud of flu.  The store of late Henry Kocchel at Waterloo was sold to Mrs. Lulu Myers who is going to start business as soon as possible.  We found 17 eggs today.  Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary were here this evening.
