When I started to get up this morning I had a pain take me in my head, but it went off upon lying down for a few minutes. I took some exercise on Freds snow shoes for my health, before breakfast. Wrote copies and then went to the store to study telegraphy. I helped Mr. Case a little also, filling an oilcan and doing some other things. I got no mail at all tonight. Am going to the opening exercises of the Teachers Convention tonight, it was real good. I was told by Mr. Case that he might have to leave by the first of April. That means business.
