It is cloudy this morn. Karl Boll gave his job up at Belleville & Milton Wagner has it now. Karl has no work. We cleaned little chick house, put on screens & washed windows. Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary, Papa went out to Bill Sensel’s sale Nobbe of Waterloo is selling him out. Aunt Mary stayed at Buehler’s. Papa bought a cow for $10.00; everything sold cheap, quite a few people attended. Louis Whiel was sale auctioneer, he bought a crippled horse for 5¢, & rung up the rendering works at Belleville to get it. Papa bought corn too for 24¢ bus. Ed Neff bought the truck for $5.00. Mulligan boy’s & Clarence Wittenauer came this afternoon to see papa but he wasn’t home, so Clarence came back this evening; he wanted a piece for ballgrounds; so papa told him for $15. & the right of us all to watch them play, & nothing hauled in or out, they could have it; so he is going to see the rest & let us know. Henry & family came up, he brought the mule up. Philip Braun was here & wanted the recipe for curing Rheumatism; Mrs. Braun has it so bad. Bert went up to look for the mail.
