A cool windy day.

Josie washed some this morning and scrubbed the kitchen floor this evening.

Ben and Owen and Marvin and William built fire boxes in the barn to day.

Tonight a dog passed and in a few minutes Tom Edmons and several other men come and said that the dog was mad.

Some one killed him over near Renan.

We heard that the Edmons boys killed their dogs this morning.
