Rosalia & Bertille went to church this morning.  Aunt Mary was there too she came up with Oscar’s wife & Frank’s wife, Emma, then after church they & Emma Eckert, Lena Birkner, & Louise Birkner all went down to Christ Buehler’s to help quilt.  We had chicken for dinner today.  Talk is spread that George Lorberg is going to move in Henry Braun’s house in Hecker and he is going to attend to the farm at home, Mrs. Lorberg wanted to move downstairs, so I guess that is why they have to move.  John Reagan is going to move in Mrs. Stauenbiel place in half the house.  Papa furnished plowing this morning.  Eggs are .24¢ at present.  We sold 4 dozen last night.  It is raining this afternoon.  Bertille got the mail this evening.  Papa went up to the bank this afternoon and then he went down to the Sorghum Mill.  Steve Rennecker was fixing the machine they are going to start soon.

Today is Eunice Blackburn’s birthday.  She is going to be 15 years old.  It is also Hilda Staunbiel’s birthday.  I believe there is a bunch going to Hilda’s first and then afterwards go to Blackburns.  We have an invitation, but we aren’t going.  It rained this afternoon.  There were 2 nice rainbows in the East.  Bertille went & got the paper this evening.  She priced the chickens, heavy’s are .22 and leghorns are .18 and .15.  Lard is .10¢.  George Wagner has his garage finished now.  There was a big crowd at Blackburn’s.
