Snowed this morning, wind blew hard in night and from Northwest to-day, got clear at sun rise and remained bright until p.m. began to cloud. Will chored and didn’t feel good but fixed bull-pen fence and feed bunk. W.D. chored, gave cattle hay, that is filled feed-rack in bull-pen and left a load of hay on rack for cattle here. He and Will went to fix fence at his barn in p.m. I got meals, laid down in p.m. and played solitaire. Will went to Whiting Store this p.m. and tried to locate 2 volt and 6 volt Batteries but mailman no bring as Gambles Store no find there for Manager had flu and only a boy there, and Will said that Sadie told him that Abe Turgeon died at his home in Mission Monday Feb. 1st at 5 p.m. He had the flu for a week and was better to-day so worked at Filling Station, The White Eagle, East End of Mission, all day and went home tired so said that he must rest and died at once from a stroke or heart attack. They sent for children but George is somewhere in Pacific and Romona lives in California. Ben is in Navy at Great Lakes, Chicago, so he came home to-day.
