We butchered 2 hogs today. Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary, Emil & Henry were the butchers. They were here for dinner, & Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary stayed for supper too. It took so long to rendered the lard. Henry & Emil left about 4 o’clock. We made some summer sausage too. Mr. Eichenseer went up to Belleville this morning & got the beef from Streck’s Shop, the driver forgot to call Eichenseer this morning, so he had to go in after it. He brought it down here, & there were 3 sausages in with the beef, so we called them up & Odillo came & got them. We had about 29-30 lbs. beef for .19¢ boneless. Ralph Wiegand was here this morning & invited us all, Uncle Fred, Aunt Mary, Henry, to come down to their place, the old house on Sunday eve. Jan. 11. It was in big letters in the paper today that Hecker State Bank shut it doors & all the directors, cashier names were mentioned.
