Bertille got a Valentine but there is no name on it. Ha! Ha! Who cares. It is snowing something awful. Papa & Rosalia went to Belleville this morning to the place where we got our little chicks from, to see what is the matter with our chicks, we have lost quite a few since last Thursday (a week). Last Tuesday, Feb. 11, Andy Hellmer & Stella Dugan were married in Waterloo by Father Eschman. Mr. Clyde Crowe was best man and Eugenia Hellmer was bridesmaid. They are going to live in Waterloo. Miss Agnes Bussen’s licenses are in the paper too. She is going to get married to a fellow from Columbia. Miss Mildred Wild is assistant in Dr. J. P. McOmellaur’s office. Papa was down at the central office this afternoon to call over to New Athens Lumber Co.. They are going to decorate and fix the St. Peter and Paul’s Church in Waterloo. It is to be finished by April 1. The lumber man from New Athens brought some lumber over this evening. It (the road) was too soft, he couldn’t drive in, so he threw it on the ground in our lane and Papa & Rosalia had to carry it in the shed. It kind a quit snowing right now, but we will have lots more yet. We are to have 23 snow this winter, we had 14 snows already. We found 12 eggs today.
