MRS. CHARLES NETCHER,
WOMEN IN AMOUNT
Sole Owner of Boston Store Carries
$700,000 to Assure Comple
tion of Her Work.
Chicago, Oct. 11. Mrs. Charles Net-
cher, sole owner of the Boston Store,
carries more insurance on her life than
any other woman in the world. The
total value of the two policies she
holds is $7011,000, or $20o.ooft more
than the amount written on the life
of her late husband. During the rest
of her life she must pay an annual
premium of $1C,27G to keep the policies
There are many other wealthy Chi
cago women whose lives are insured
for big sums, but none of their poli
cies calls for half the amount that the
one held by Mts. Netcher is worth.
Soni' of them and the amount of in
surance in each case are:
Mrs. Frank O. Lowden $2.".0(io
Mrs. Frank Carolan $2r,o.OM
Mrs. D. S. Wege 200.000
Mrs. Pauline I, von 3011.000
It is understood that the last police-
mentioned has not been issued as yet
to Mrs. Lyon, but she w-ill receive it
in a few days. Her object in insur
ing h-r life was to secure money to
build a clubhouse for women.
"I do not care to gain any publicity
through this matter, said Mrs. Netcher
vesterdav as sh- sat at her desk on
th third floor of the Boston store.
"I feel that I have already gained
sufficient notoriety for one woman.
While I hold the only life insurance
policy of irs kind "ver issued to a
woman, really I do not think that the
public would be at all interested in
this fact. I am simply trying to fol
low every example set by my husband
when he was a'ive."
It was not lonir after Charles Net
cher died that his widow conceived
the idea of heavily insuring h'-r life.
In view of the fact that plans for en
larging the Boston store will be car
ried out in the pear future, Mrs. Net
cher decided to have the policies writ
