I have seen the paper that Arthur Matlock from Waterloo have a little boy at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital, it was born last Monday.  Nick Schaefer’s second youngest daughter, Maggie, was taken to the hospital last Sat. night and was operated on for appendix.  Henry Meng got his finger smashed between 2 large rocks, he now has his arm & fingers in a sling.  The St. Louis baseball team played here Sunday with Hecker the score was 8 to 15 in favor of Hecker.  It is reported that Clem Parker lost a valuable horse last Sat. from heat.  Bertille was up town and got the paper this morning.  Mrs. Gene Meckler from Waterloo, they took her to the Hospital at Red Bud.  We baked cookies, washed, ironed, cleaned upstairs today.  It is Albert Cleveland’s birthday today.  Yesterday it was their wedding anniversary 18 years married & tomorrow night they are going to have a dance.  Emma Braun brought Mrs. Rennecker home this evening.  Papa & Rosalia went down to Geo. Vonderheit’s this afternoon and got the spring buggy home, what Papa bought for .30¢.  Steve Rennecker and his wife were over this evening a little while.  Roman Meng came over and told us that our colt was out, something was chasing it, I guess a dog.  It ran through the wire fence, it has a cut on the breast & one on leg behind.  We put some lard & turpentine on it right away.  Mrs. Rennecker said that Mr. Dehn ain’t no better yet, no changes she said.  Dr. Eckert’s father is awful bad sick too.

Uncle Fred came up & helped Papa haul straw this morning.  He was here for lunch.  Before noon he went home & got Aunt Mary & then they both was here for dinner.  We had chicken dinner.  After dinner we went down to George Vonderveil sale.  Papa bought 400 worth of stuff, a shovel & a spring buggy.  Everything went cheap there too.  Henry Birkner bought a horse for $7.00.  This evening Jac. Anderson & his son were here and looked at the mare and colt.  He thought maybe he would take her.  He is going to let us know tomorrow morning.  Today is Catholic Church picnic at Red Bud.
