It is raining this morning.  This afternoon Papa went out and started discing again.  Clifford Stahlber was here nearly all afternoon playing with the colt.  Wilford & Clarence Eichenseer were also here.  Papa went over to Ed. Meng’s this evening with the mare, and we had to hold the Blindy & Queeny the colt.  We all went out to Henry’s this evening but when we got there they wasn’t home.  So Papa took a sample of sweet clover along to see how it was.  If it was fit for seed.

Papa & Rosalia went to Belleville to the Eureka Hatchery to pay the chickens off for another week because it is too cold yet for little chicks.  Bertille took 3 dozen eggs to Eichenseers, got .21¢ a dozen.  Mr. John Wiegand & Miss Edna Jatho got married last Saturday, the way the people said.  Haven’t seen it in the papers yet.  Their licenses were in there.  He is 27 years old & she is 22 years old.  Mr. & Mrs. Mehrmam are at George Wagner’s today.  Papa & Rosalia brought Floyd a pair of rompers, and Bobby a pair of overalls along from Belleville for their birthdays.  We found 28 eggs today.  Willie Braun was here & got 3 bushes of sweet clover for $5.50 a bush.  Papa went out to sow sweet clover after supper.
