We got up quite early this morning as Mr. W. E. Betts came for Fred to go to Traverse with him for a load. I [sic] was mild weather and looked like rain then, bt began to snow after a while and kept storming most of the day, it cleared off toward evening and is real cold tonight. I went to the store and have been helping to wait on customers quite a good deal today so as to get the hang of things. I did some at studying telegraphy also. I got my dinner at the Hall when the mass meeting was held to promote the Prohibition Amendment. They had a good time in spite of the storm. I saw Richard Robbins at the store, he says his wife is about the same. Have been writing copies and other things tonight.
