Bertille went to church this morning. Papa is spreading lime dust. Rosalia is on the sick list, too much beer last night I guess. There was a machine, the Karr Range Co., they had a victorola in it then those big horns on top of it. They played all kinds of pieces, “Just a Precious Little Thing Called Love.” “I Fall Down and Go Boom,” “Romana.” Bertille took 2 doz. eggs to the store & got .18¢ a doz. The leghorn spring are .17¢. White & Red Rocks are over 2 lbs. .21¢ and under 2 lbs. .18¢. Yesterday the Young People’s League of Hecker had their outing in Rittenmyer’s woods by their clubhouse. It rained awful by Peter Dehns today the way Mrs. Rennecker told Katie Klotz. It just sprinkled a little here. It didn’t amount to anything. Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary were here a little while this evening, but it started to get cloudy so they went home. They wanted to go to Adam Eckerts yet from here, but I don’t think they did. It is Edmund Eckerts birthday. It rained pretty hard for awhile this evening, thundered & lightning, wind.

Mr. Hill called up this evening and said there was a little chick over there that didn’t belong to them & we should come over & see it, maybe it was ours. So Bertille went over & brought it along back, but it didn’t belong to us.
It is raining this morning but we sure need it to. Everything is so dry, the garden is just like dying, from heat and no rain. It rained almost all day & nite.

Bertille baked bread, coffee cake, cookies, today. Rosalia worked in the garden and also planted some flowers out and sowed some lettuce seed in the garden after the rain, so tonight we have some more showers and then it will start to grow.
