Today is Election.  Papa went out in the woods this morning, him and Uncle Joe & Eddy Meuth cut a tree down with a bee hive in it.  Then they went up to Meuth’s again, they had a whole tub full.  So Papa called up & said Rosalia should come out & fix the honey out there so she went.  They said for half it would make about 3 or 4 gals.  Meuths are going to get half of it.  Henry is plowing here today.  Leona & the kids came up just before dinner, they were all here for dinner.  Papa had dinner out at Meuths today.  Henry and Papa went up to vote.  Bertille was at church this morning.  Rosalia was out at Meuth’s for supper.  They didn’t have enough jars to put the honey in so in the evening Papa & Bertille drove out there too & took a 2 gal. jar along.  It made about 12 gals. altogether, we got 5 1/2 gals.  John Wittenauer’s have a little girl since Sunday afternoon.
