We all went early this morning to church. The priest passed Miss Stella Roscow by this morning at the communion railing. Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary were here for dinner and breakfast. This afternoon we all went into Belleville. We got some cook pots. Rosalia went and got the mail. This evening Papa, Rosalia, Bertille, Uncle Fred, Aunt Mary, Henry & family went up to Uncle Adam’s & Emil’s. I have seen in the Waterloo Times that Miss Ida Sommer & two girl friends from Columbia motored to Louisville, Kentucky, where they will spend a week seeing many points of interest such as Mammoth Cave, Lincoln’s birthplace at Hodgenville, Ky., The Old Kentucky home of Bardstown & Camp Knox. They expect to return home Sat. Also Miss Marie Kolmer and Louise Dalkert left Sat. for a tour of the west. Their stops will include Denver, Colorado Springs, Estes & Yellowstone parks. They will be gone about 2 weeks. A 8 lb. baby girl was born to Mr. & Mrs. Geo. Strattman, the shoe man, at St. Mary’s Hospital, East St. Louis, Monday morning. They now have a pair. On August 9, Miss Alice Hoffman became the bride of Mr. Roy Bohres of St. Louis.
