Rosalia & Bertille went to church this morn. & Papa went out to Oscar Birkner’s.  This afternoon he went out in the woods.  Fr. Grootens & Frank Swindle were here this evening & looked at our new pigs, they said “they are sure nice.”  H.M. Hill was reporting the news to the Belleville Papers that the Hecker bank shut its doors.  I seen in the Waterloo Times that Miss Helen Keckritz & a Cowell from Red Bud had a collision & Miss Keckritz machine got on fire & was completely pushed off the road & all damaged, it happened between Red Bud & Waterloo, she & a few more friends were going to the Brickey School, when the accident happened.  I believe she has a new Whippet now.  Emmett Cowell of Red Bud, the store manager of there was fined $102 (he had no license) for buying furs of a certain kind.  Robert Basecher 19 of Red Bud & Miss Fern Gully 20 of the same place were married last week.  Dr. Fentor also of Waterloo was in a collision in E. St. Louis & Mr. & Mrs. Fenton & their niece was hurt seriously.  Henry Kessler of Hecker has just passed his 70th birthday anniversary & says he is going to withdraw from the Woodmen.
