Minor Intelligence [excerpt]

     DOCTOR MARY WALKER, of Washington, District of Columbia, the woman who wears the garb of man, recently came within an ace of being mobbed in a railroad coach at Syracuse, New York, on account of some disparaging remarks concerning President McKinley. She was on the verge of being knocked down when her sex was discovered. Only a reprimand followed on that occasion, but now rumor says that Mary will lose her pension in consequence of her prattling.
