Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary came up to pump the water out of there cellar, he made a hole in the kitchen floor to put the pipe on the pump down, he has it all out now. They had lunch here with us.  There was a boy here wanted some votes to become a doctor, he had 47 more votes to get, he has to have 2,000 & then he get $500.00 bonus to study, you buy a book or magazine, & it has so many votes, from 1 to 8 vote, that’s the highest, he said Fr. Grootens gave him 7 & Sister Superior, Lela Deuker, that is all he mentioned.  We didn’t take none.  The butcher Sethl from Smithton was here & looked at our hogs, they are only 5.45 he said.  Clara Wagner gave us some flowers to plant out, touch-me-nots.  Eggs are 13¢.
