Today Wm. Curran & Julia Ruby are getting married in St. Patrick’s church Tiptown, & this evening they will have a wedding dance at Oak Grove.  Philip & Bill came out & we went to the dance.  The wedding couple marched around the hall, then they danced a waltz.  Mabel Crook & Olga Bozzay where the attendants.  Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary went too.  We all went too Waterloo this afternoon to the car sale at Nobbe’s.  Aunt Mary won a prize a dress, cap & anklets given by Clara Siegel.  The dress she got exchanged for a larger one & Rosalia got the cap, & Bertille the socks.  Nelson Kleyer won the old ford coupe that was raffled.  There was a man here this morning selling the Daily Advocate paper.  The insurance man from Horse Prairie was also here.  Victor Eichenseer was here too.  We stopped at Henry’s when we went to Waterloo.  Frank Dudenhoeffers & Margaret & the family where at Uncle Pete’s last Sunday.  She said we should come over to St. Louis next Sunday.  Our little chicks are hatching Sat., so I don’t know if we will go or not but I guess if it don’t rain we will.
