Missing Caughnawaga Lad Walked Thirty Miles

Thomas Rice, 13 years of age, of Caughnawaga, who had been reported missing last Monday afternoon, after he had left a note to his mother saying he was leaving the Indian Reserve, was located yesterday afternoon at St. Chrystotome, Que., to which place he had walked.

Chief of Police Jocks, of the Indian Reserve, who is leaving for St. Chrysostome, some time today in order to bring the boy back home, stated that the village where young Rice was found is situated about 30 miles south of Caugnawaga There being no railway running to the village the boy was forced to walk. He had reached St. Chrysostome, and became ungry. He went to see H. Delisle, branch manager of the Bell Telephhone Company of Canada, and told him his tale of woe. Delisle notified Chief Jocks at once.
