Due to the very cold winter and scarcity of snow there is a possibility of the water freezing between your residence and the main.

M**- With the exception of Triumphs all varieties of potatoes have declined in price in the Princeton market. The range of this drop below last week's quotations is from 15 to 25 cents per cwt. (See market report in this week's Union.) Only about half of the 22 Princeton warehousemen are buying eating stock at this time, the reason being due to the shortage of cars and the large quantities of seed stock on hand. Un less this seed stock, which has all been ordered, reaches its destination within a short time it will be rejected by southern growers. Very few shipments have been made during the past week and receipts have been light. Wikeen-Wright. A belated announcement in the shape of a newspaper clipping handed to us this morning by Peter Wikeen gives the information that Heirio Wikeen, son of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Wikeen of this village, was married on January 1 at Billings, Mont., to Miss Minnie E. Wright of Mossmain. The young peo ple will live at Livingston, Mont. Heino Wikeen went to Montana from Princeton six years ago and located on a claim near Hysham.

Eisenhut-Peterson. Morris Eisenhut of Blue Hill and Miss Ellen Peterson of the same town ship were married by Father Willen brink at St. Edward's church on Mon day morning.

Numer ous gifts were bestowed upon the young people. The Union congratulates Mr. and Mrs. Eisenhut and wishes them a long and happy life. Sandy's Heaven. 1 "No doubt he is happy now if there is a dog heaven, feasting on frozen fish and dozing with his old trail mates." Thus spoke the last owner of San dy, the big lead dog who did so much last winter to make Fred Hart man famous in the desperate race from Winnipeg to St. Paul. Sandy's heart was breaking amid the prosaic surroundings and demoralizing ease of city life. He longed for the zest of the snowy trail with its Arctic winds, and, not knowing that his captors were taking him back for a taste -of the wild, he jumped from a train for freedom and found death. And, as his master says, if there is a heaven for^dogs Sandy will find it in an abundance of frozen fish and a bed in the snow. What a pitiful heaven, even for a dog. And what other than a magnificent soul could be satisfied with its simplicity?St. Paul Dispatch. A Patriot to the Core. Harry Lauder: Let us remember we are all citizens of a j*reat nation America. That we are what our fore fathers made usfreemenand that we never will in any degree subject ourselves to the domination of German Prussian rule. We believe what God says: We should love our enemies, but God does not expect us to love His enemies. It is not for glory, riches or honors we fight, but for liberty alone, which no good man looses but with his life. No German Nation for Him. A county Tyrone (Ireland) farmer entered a seed merchant's shop in Omagh for turnip seed, asking if they could be guaranteed. "Yes," said the merchant. "I'll warrant them 98 per cent germination." "Then," said the patriot, "I'll no hev them if there is one per cent of the German nation aboot them I'd not sow them. No enemy trading for me." One Good Turn Deserves Another. "I wish, sir," said the lanky Cana dian sub-officer, "you would use your influence to restrain my squad from referring to me with the undignified term of 'Legs.'" "Certainly I will, my lad," agreed the colonel, "if you will use your in fluence to stop my whole regiment from calling me 'Old Baldy.' "Boston Transcript. The Y. P. S. C. E. of the Congrega tional church raised over $30 for the relief of the starving Armenians and Syrians.
