Bertille was at church this morning. There is to be quilting at Mrs. Eckert’s this afternoon. Mr. Mehrman got stuck in George Wagner’s road and he had to get Vic Eichenseer to pull him out with their truck. He had to serve as jury man in Belleville. Joe Mueth in the prairie have a little son, they got him christened yesterday. I don’t know what they named it. Bertille took 3 dozen eggs to Eichenseer’s & got .21¢ a dozen. Henry came up this evening and brought his calfs up. He came down here a little while. Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary came down here a little while before they went to Euchre. Aunt Mary, Uncle Fred, Papa, Rosalia, & Bertille went to the Euchre and Old Time Dance in Kammler’s hall tonight. The Herzog’s boy and girl played with both accordions. Uncle Fred got a broom for a prize & Aunt Mary got a dish pan. None of us got anything. Bertille had 5 punches, Papa 4, and Rosalia 3. The sixes took all the prizes. They also had a slipper dance. The ladies had to take their shoe off and throw them in a box and the boys had slips. They had to pick one shoe and find the partner to that, then dance with that girl. They had a square, broom, polka, barn dance and also some of the latest steps and tunes. Uncle Fred played some of the old timers (tunes). Found 23 eggs.
