Ed Scheinder was here yesterday evening to look over the ground, he wants to rent some, then he went to the dairy meeting at the new school. Ath. Russell Classen was the speaker. Today is Evansville Church pinic [sic], 3 big bands, big parade & chicken supper. Papa & Rosalia went out to Henry’s to get a load of oats. There was a man around selling a rubber to open a tightened fruit jars. Papa got his hair cut. We planted some beans & made a patch ready for pickles, & cut in about 1 gal. kraut. This evening we all went to Zeibold’s farm & got a stack hog for $4.00. We just had got home & then company, Mr. & Mrs. Tom Crowe & Mrs. Jim Crowe & daughters Ina May & Arlow [sic – Orlou].

We cleaned house, washed curtains. A man was here trying to take orders for an orphanage, he was from St. Louis, we didn’t take any. This afternoon Johson [possibly Johnson] the fellow what works for Zeibold was here trying to sell skill gas stoves, & also washing machines. Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary where up this afternoon making garden, potatoes, onions, lettuce, radishes, we helped awhile. Papa went out to Henry’s all day helping to sew oats. He was there for dinner. Jung the egg man from Red Bud was here & got 18 doz. eggs @ 10½¢. standard price, the way he said, I guess he won’t stop no more, if another egg man comes in & wants to buy our eggs for that price.
