Albert Boulderice, who was formerly
employed by Superintendent Alex. Han
ton as an assistant at Hope cemetery,
came to Barre yesterday from Mont
pelier, where he was discharged in the
morning from Ilea ton hospital, after a
confinement of fourteen weeks. In late
November, Mr. Boulderice was employed
on the section near Montpelier Junction.
One day he caught his right foot in a
switch frog just as a freighter was ap
proaching from the north. In his efforts
to release the member, he twisted his
leg so violently that the bone was brok
en in two places. Physicians at first de
spaired of saving the limb, but careful
treatment forfended the possibility of an
operation. Mr. Boulderice is still unable
to walk without the aid of crutches,
and several weeks must elapse before he
can resume work. After a short stay
with friends in Barre, he, will return to
Iloagknit sweaters at Abbott's.
