Albert J. Hudson, a native of Dummerston, was killed May 23 on the rail car on an elevated train at the Adams Square, Boston. He refused to release his hold on a suitcase he was carrying when the car door closed, and was dragged along by the train, and being killed by being crushed between the journal box of the car and the guard rail. Hudson had only one arm, his right arm having been lost in a railroad accident many years ago. The closed door caught the suitcase in its grip, and although the guards shouted to him to let go, he clung to his valise and was dragged to his death.
His sister, Mrs. Albert Whitaker, resides in Northfield Falls.
