HER HUSBAND A CATHOLIC Eut Mrs Williams Was Unaware of His Religious Preference. The condition of John Williams, the Boston and Albany brakmen who was injured at the Junction Friday afternoon, isf very favorable and there is every probability that the man will recover. The doctors feel that he is practically out of danger. The surgeons, by the operation performed Friday night, saved all the right heel and some of the foot which will make it possible to attach an artificial foot to the part remaining. One of the first questions asked of an "accident patient" entering the hospital is as to his religion so that in case of necessity a minister of the faith may be summoned to extend divine comfort. In the case of Williams the man said, In reply to a question by the physician that he was a Catholic, and Rev. Michael Lenoard ofsSt. Joseph's was sent for', The priest went to the House of Mercy and administered the last rites of the church to the brakeman whose injuries at that time were believed to be fatal. That evening Mrs. Williams arrived from West Springfield and oh being informed of the ircident said: Why, my husband is not a' Catholic. I am a Baptist, but so far as I know he has no religious preference." The following morning Father Leonard went to the hosmtal and learning of Mrs. Williams', statement expressed some surprise although he immediately surmised that, as Williams was suffering intense pain, he might not have been wholly accountable for his utterances. On reaching the sick room. Father Leonard said: "I understand thjat some mistake has been made here arid that you are not a CathoTic as you professed to be the other-"day" s "jYe8, I am," wis the reply. "Indeed I atn a Catholic. ,1 was correct in my statement." The fact was that Mrs. .Williams although the couple had bepn married for years was unaware off the religious faith of her husband. . 1 . SITUATION UNCHANGED e ' n:o!kiam striking BJack8miths Get Posl- y at Saul ;e , lions tiswnere. There is lfttle material change in the Boston andV Albany situation.- The blacksmithsdelare that the next move will have to beT&ade by the company, as they are all content to let the matters remain as they are. A number of the strikers have already secured work in Renssalaer ind vicinity, and those who have obviously, been enjoying a vacation will to. some extent secure positions this week. No move has ceri made by either party toward securing a conference, and so far as the company andj the strikers meeting is concerned theie is no more likelihood than at thaAery beginning of the strike. The strikers have been semi-officially informed that the company is" about ready to mt in men to fill their 'places. if theylo not return to their jobs at onceybut the men are as one in their determination to hold out for their whole schedule. The waging of the strike has been different from that of the machinists' in th$t no picketing is being done, the striking blacksmiths not' going near the yard. at all. r ' New Fall Shoes For Women At Robertson's.
