Schiders putting up hay. Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary where up, she helped clean dishes & things at the school house for pinic [sic] next Sat. In Ruma there is a big pinic today, mass was said out in the woods; lot of cars & priest went down this morning. There was a man here from Kansas trying to sell dry goods, shirts 19¢, etc, he brought some of his dress goods in & showed it to us, $1.95 for 3½ yds, we didn’t buy none, & papa & Uncle Fred wanted to buy sheets, he was so mad, said he had no more time to talk had to hurry & get out so they never got no shirts either; Boy! was he mad. I say he was. Canned 2 qts tomatoes, we have 111 qts now. It rained a little.
