A young man, a deaf mute,
named Duncan Boomer, whose father has the same name, lives near the
Block School House, north of Lynnville, in Windham, is missing.
The young man, who is 30
years of age, has been greatly perturbed over the prospect of being
sent to war and ever since he signed his application for exemption,
his father says, has acted excitedly.
On Sunday he went to the
vicinity of Kelvin to visit relatives. He has been traced, on his
return journey, to within a mile of his father's house, from which
point nothing has been heard from him.
Any one who can give
information is requested to communicate with Duncan Boomer,
The missing man was driving
a brown pony, hitched to a new Cockshutt buggy, with red gear, black
body and round coil springs.
