The resolution states that during

germs will link in all water that has

It is hoped by members of the board
that the publicity which is being giv

to exercise great care in the u?e of

through the State aro compelled to
pump water direct, giving no oppor

Missing Man Found at Muncy.
Charles Jolin3on,of Catawisaa,whose
strange disappearance from home oo
Friday last has caused his family and
friends muoli anxiety, was heard of
yesterday in tills oity. He was also ID
Maasdale and Wasliinßtnuvilie. From
Washiugtonville lie was traced to
Money, whore he speut last night.
Two of his relatives parsed through
this city last evening onroate for
Muuoy to take charge of the man.
Tuesday morning he passed unnotic
ed through Danville and rook the road
to Maasdale. Mrs. J. H. Slioltz of
that plaoo had driven to this city, aud
ou her way home passed him. Some
time after her arrival he presented
himself at her door and askod for some
thing to eat. As it was aboot dinner
time and he was invited to remain for
the meal. The family noticed his pecu
liar actions aud appearance. He gave
no name,aud entered iuto no conversa
tion. From some blood spots on his
clothes, he appeared to have had a
fall. After diuner he thanked Mrs.
Shultz and started toward Washing
touville, audit was not nntil later to
the day when the Morning News con
tain in K an acoouut of the diaappear
auoe and a description of the man
reached Mausdale that the Slmltz fam
ily discovered who the man was. He
tallied with the description in every
respect, the most prominent features
being the missing tooth, the red hair
and the suit oase.
Toward evening he arrived in Wasli
ingtuville. He inquired his way to the
Burgess, aud upon finding Dr. R. S.
Patten, told him that he was without
money aud looking for work ;so he re
quested that the towu furuisli him
with lodging and breakfast. Dr. Pat
ten gave him an order as desired ou
Landlord Amaudus Heddons, at whose
hotel lie spent the niiht. Here, as at
Mausdale, his actions were most ec
oentric.£(He gave a] fictitious name,
but told the truth about his home be
ing at Oatawissa. He was very quiet,
only speaking when he was addressed,
aud then but shortly. After breakfast
yesterday he left Washiugtouville, tak
ing the road to Turbotville and Money.
When the authorities learned yester
day of his presence in this vicinity,
word was seut to the towns between
Washingtonvillo and Muuoy. Last
night he was looated in a hotel at Mun
oy and two of his brotheri-iu-law
started at once to that^town.
