McDermott, of Kingsland, officiated as deacon, the Rev. T. J. O'Shea, of Jersey City, as sub-deacon and the Rev. C. A. Smith, as master of ceremonies. A sermon was delivered by the Rev. S. B. Hedges, of Arlington, and the Rt. Rev. Bishop John J. O'Connor, of Newark, gave the final absolution. During the mass for the dead the church was packed with the Nutley congregation and residents of neigh boring towns. The grief of the parish ioners was strikingly shown when tin Rev. S. B. Hedges gave a brief blit touching sketch of the beloved pastor's life. Father Hedg s told of the Rev. Francis A. Foy's birth and childhood at Mt. Holly, and related that in the late priest's family there had been three generations of priests. Continuing, Father Hedges touched upon the life of Father Foy when he studied law and wrs admitted to the bar. Four teen years he practised at Philadel phia, and was the private secretary for a United States sena.or.at Washing ton, related the speaker, but the young man's ambition was riot to gain fame and money for himself, for his heart went out to the suffering poor, and he decided to answer to the call of his vocation. His Clerical C areer. After his ordination Father Foy was assigned to St. Joseph's Church, at Jersey City, where he remained but a short time, until he was appointed to take charge of St. Mary's, at Nutley. The late rector’s greed for knowledge that would help to alleviate the suffer ings of his poor was well known. At the rectory numberless books treating upon the church and almost every phase of life can be seen In the library, where the late priest was often to be found. So touched were he hearers that many had to bury their faces In their arms to hide their grief. The fclergymen who were present at the funeral were: the Right Rev. Bishop John J. O'Connor, Father T.

When the body of Father Foy was taken from the church after the serv ices the men parishioners preceded the hearse to the Belleville township line. There the members of the church parted, forming a line on each side of the road. With heads uncovered and forms bent in respect, every man stood rigid as the body of their beloved pas tor went by on its way to the Market street depot of the Pennsylvania rail road. This afternoon the 2 o'clock train carried the body to Burlington, where In a special trolley car the funeral trip was concluded to the ceme tery at Mount Holly. The love and admiration with which Father Foy was held by his flock was clearly evidenced by an Incident after the services today. Many out-of-town priests made tem porary quarter® at the rectory of the dead priest. Mrs. D. Swanson, a widow, 62 years old. is the housekeeper in charge of the house and had been in j Father Foy s employ for four years. ;A man ran into the rectory and in quired if a certain priest was there. Mrs. Swanson shook her head in the negative, and when the stranger stood watching her she said: "I don’t know who is here and who is not. Father Foy Is gone and that is all I can think of. How we do miss himi In all my life I have never met a kinder man and one who so easily won the hearts of his Hock. "Four years ago when he adminis tered the last rites of the church to my dying husband the priest consoled me and after my bereavement offered me a home as his housekeeper. I would do anything In the world for him; he was a living saint.' At this point the sun shone brightly through the library i windows on a portrayal of the "Last I Supper." worked in bronze and hanging on the wall. Fearful the image might become discolored, the gra.v-haired woman went to the windows to lower the shades Although this task re i quired very little strength, the faithful | woman bit her lips and frowned at the j shades, doubtless to keep back the j tears that already stained her checks. The State Charities Aid and Prison geform Association has adopted the I following resolution on Father Foy's i death: “It is with a sense of irreparable loss 1 and a feeling of deep sorrow that the State Charities Aid and Prison Reform Association of New Jersey makes rec I ord of the death on Sunday. December 11, of Father Francis A. Foy. He had ; been an active member of the assocta j tion for many years, and its secretary ‘ since 1904. This was a labor of love. The beginning of his work in New Jer 1 sey, as a minister of the Catholic Church, was also the beginning of an active interest in all of our present day social problems that made him also a minister to all the people without ! regard to sect or faith. He gave Hm , self without stint to the work of this I association and many others whose aim is the uplift of the weak and fallen. He was In very truth a ‘guide, counsel ] lor and friend.’ It is useless to attempt to describe his character more than this. He had all those qualities that won for him the love and confidence of those who knew him. He needs no other epitaph. It is through the life and work of such men that God’s king dom on earth must come.
