We finished digging our potatoes this morning, it was nice & cool.  Joe Schilling started thrashing his wheat today.  Ed Wittenauer’s is also thrashing wheat.  Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary where up this afternoon, they sold there onions, 90¢ a bu. they had 3 bus., sold them to Braun’s.  We got a letter from Burkhardt, receiver of Hecker Bank, a check for $9.75, paying out 15¢ [possibly mean percent] now, to everybody.  Emery Kreher’s baby died, 10 mos. old & was buried at Paderborn.  In today’s paper was that 500 people died at Chicago.  It is clouding up again, for rain, & it came.  Rosalia got some ice cream this evening, it sure was good.
