Rosalia drove out to get Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary.  Henry came up and then they all worked on the sewer again.  They got it finished about 4:30.  Uncle Fred, Aunt Mary, Henry were all here for dinner and two lunches.  Leona & the kids didn’t come along.  Today is Irene Neff’s birthday.  She is going to be seventeen years old.  In the evening Rosalia, Papa, Uncle Fred, Aunt Mary went to the cemetery.  After they came back Rosalia, Bertille went to church,  Aunt Mary too.

Today is Uncle Adam’s birthday.  He is going to be 81 years old.  It is raining again a little this morning.  Rosalia went out to Uncle Fred’s this morning and brought Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary along back with her.  They were here for dinner & two lunches.  Henry & family were all here too for dinner and two lunches.  Papa, Uncle Fred, Henry, dug up the sewer this morning.  It was blocked up but it didn’t come through yet, so they will have to work another day if they didn’t get finished today.  Mr. Hill was over a little while.  Rosalia took 4 doz. eggs to the store & got .19¢ a dozen.

Mr. George Heyl got killed this afternoon.  The way we heard Mr. George Heyl had been to the stockyards and when he was coming home he got killed between Smithton and Hecker in that creek bottom by Grohman’s.  He ran out of gas and went to the neighbor’s house to get some, when coming back a machine struck him and killed him.  There is so many tales out, that you don’t know which was the right.  Henry Gambach found him laying on the road when he came back from St. Louis.
