The fact that G. H. Jacobson, a
real estate dealer, was showing the
house to prospective buyers saved
the child's life. He tried to open a
pantry door, but it was. stuck. He
hammered on the door and at last
jerked it open.
Little Anna tottered into the room,
almost blinded by the glare of day
light after her 72 hours' imprison
ment, and so weak she could barely
stand. Before Jacobson could recover
from his surprise the child had walk
ed out the door and into the arms of
her father, who was returning from
the Calumet river, where he had been
searching for her body.
Lying in her father's arms, the

The mystery in the murder of Ben
nie Holstein is just as deep today as
it was yesterday. Several beautiful
dreams have been had by policemen
and reporters, but the solution of the
crime is still far off.

found a dead dog.

It will be in this paper tomorrow.
Don't miss it.
