Rose finished my dress, started hers. We had chicken soup dinner. Mr. William Rankin & painter of Waterloo, gave us a call. We went to Mr. John Dehn’s funeral at Red Bud this afternoon. Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary went down too; we didn’t go out to the cemetery, it got so late, till church was over; an awful large funeral; nice flowers.

Rankin.  We also stopped at Frank’s and Hover’s.  Tonight Louis Kerobers are having a dance celebrating Kate’s birthday.  Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary are going.  We heard Mr. Fries shot his wife and then himself at New Athens this morning at 4 o’clock.
