January 9, 1902

This has been a very fine day but the sky is hazy tonight and bespeaks a storm.

I went for another load of lumber today.

Turkeys are quoted at 8¢ in town today.

We learned that Alf Churdan came up from Des Moines today with Smallpox; a considerable portion of the town is quarantined.

I attended a meeting of our building committee tonight.

I think that our line will be assured.

A bill was made out and one copy sent to Lohrville and another to Churdan.

*Sarah note: Today’s pronunciation of Churdan is with the emphasis on the dan. In prior years when the name was a person’s proper name the emphasis was on the Chur, making it sound like sure-dun* (End of note)
