The Mutual Life Insurance Company,
which had fifteen policyholders on the
Hner, paid out 70,000 in insurance, and
yet such is the magnitude tit the com

FAMILY QUALITY HOUSE
909 SeveMth Street '
Dr. Mary Walker, who is a familiar
figure on the streets of Washington,
and who has worn trousers for a longer
time than most men can remember, has
been arrested for wearing "em. The
arrest was made in Chicago yesterday
by Officer Cleary, of Chicago' "Finest."
Today Clean' is contemplating the
vicissitudes of fate and fortune, but he
still wears his uniform.
"Dr. Walker, who Is eighty-three years
old, had started from the home of
friends with whom she was staying yes
terday, for her usual constitutional. At
the corner of West Sixty-first and Wal
lace streets Officer Cleary saw her, and
his sense of outraged decency overcamo
him. He "pulled" the venerable suffra
gette and. despite her protests, carried
her to the police station.
At the station Dr. Walker, who took
the whole matter as a Joke, convinced
the desk sergeant that she had a right
to wear 'cm, and was prompUy re
leased. Dr. Walker first began wearing
trousers during the civil war, when she
gained the gratitude of the-Oovernment
r "tlnK as a nurse In the' army hos
pitals. After the war.' she -decided to
co.mnue wearing them, and after she
had got Into trouble a, number-of times
In States where the wearing 'of trousers
by a woman Is a misdemeanor,- Congress
passed a resolution allowing Tier to wear
man's attire. .
Dr. Walker Is noted for her eccentrici
ties. One of her best known acts was
her offer to sell her Index finger to a
woman for money enough to establish
a hospital. The offer was refused, but
no ono doubted that Dr. Walker was
sincere In It.
