NEW YORK, Feb. 4.-A package re
ceived by Mrs. Grace Willis Walker In
an uptown apartment house, last night ex
ploded and caused her death almost In
stantly. The mystery of the affair hag
baffled the police. l
The woman, who was S3 years old, was
called to the vestibule of the apartment
by a messenger who presented her with a
good eiaed package and then hurried
away. She carried the package to her
apartment and as aha placed It on a table
it exploded with a loud report. Dr.
Charles F. Perkins, who was passing the
house st the time,' ran In to aid Mrs.
Walker, but ahe died In a few minutes.
The package contained dry batteries,
one of which waa driven Into the. woman's
breast near the heart. Parts of the
battery buried themselves in the walls
and celling of the roonfVhlle fragments
were blown through the windows so
cleanly that the glass was not splintered.
After several hours of secret investi
gation detectives arrested Charles M.
Dickinson, who geld he waa aa employe
of a motor company, and held him on a
technical charge of homicide for ex
amination Monday morning.
Edna Lamarre. a show girl, 15 years old.
who lived In the house, but waa oat at
the time the fatality occurred, waa held
aa a material witness.
Mrs. Walker, a widow, who was also
known aa Helen Taylor, tbe police say,

floor of a house at MS West Bsvantr-eev-
enth street. When Coroner Feinberg was
summoned he found her face terribly dis
torted with tha left eye driven back Into
the head, a deep gash ever the heart and
scores of abrasions and cuts on tha body.
Coroner Fein berg's version of the ex
plosion after several hours Investigation
was that the woman waa Bitting in her
parlor talking to Dickinson when the mys
terious package waa delivered. It was
such a package as might contain MS ciga
rettes, about four and one-nan ny ten
Inches, neatly- wrapped In paper. It bore
the typewritten nddress:

What also appeared to have been an Iron '
