Rosalia is got them spots all over this morning, so I guess in a few days she will be alright again. Papa took 8 doz. eggs off & got 12¢. This afternoon a fellow from Belleville was here & looked at our chickens, he wanted to buy 6 for $1.50 a piece, but Papa wanted $2.00. So he bought 6½ doz. eggs from the White Rocks, selling eggs for 25¢ a doz. We got a Valentine yesterday & today, one from Rosie & Mamie Mueth. Joe Miller from Waterloo got buried the other day, that is Bess Miller’s dad. The transfer of Ben Schilling to Clara Braun was also in the paper. Quernheim’s are going to have their new funeral apartment open on Main St. next Sunday from 9 to 5, everybody should come to see it. Papa took a letter to Chicago Mail Order to the bank this morning. Mr. Pinkel said, he would take charge of it. That he would send it away tomorrow. We send a Valentine to Rosie & Mamie today.

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.
