"Forward, Guide Right."
For some time the boys of Princeton
have been waiting for an opportunity
to secure a company of the national
guard and during the past two years
two applications have been sent to
headquarters. The UNION is informed
that Princeton stands next in line for a
company and the boys are therefore
feeling jubilant.
A knowledge of the tactics is a. erood
thing for all citizens of this republic to
know, as was shown in the recent war
when such a large army of volunteers
were called upon for service. The ex
ercise is another good feature. The
setting-up exercises are designed
to develop the muscles of the body and
give the recruit a soldierly bearing
and will prove beneficial to health.
The company furnishts the boys with
a sort of social club and parents may
rest assured that their boys are not in
mischief while in attendance. Then
once a year the boys are taken off for
a ten day's encampment at which they
are paid a per diem, a vacation with
out expense.
tp secure an armory, but from the as
surances giyen by prominent citizens
that will be easily obtained. The date
of the muster has not yet been set, but
is likely to occur April 19. Between
5 and 70 boys have expressed a desire
to join and as 76 is the limit those who
intend to join should be on hand
promptly. Notice of the exact date
will be given later, when the company
will be called together to select officers.
