Today the machines go, there is Homecoming at New Athens, & Circus at Belleville.  Papa went down to see Ed. Pabst’s, this morning to see the crops there.  He bought 12 tiling from the town for 60¢.  Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary where up this afternoon, we all had lunch there & this evening we sat on there porch, watching fireworks at New Athen’s & at George Wagner’s.  We had music & singing.  Joe Schilling finished threshing today & pulled out in the prariere [sic-prairie] are up by Paderborn.  He threshed 2214 bus, with oats & wheat.
