I C. J. GUTGESELL. Manager, METROSTYLE PIANOL ITS EXCEPTIONAL FITNESS FOR A CHRISTMAS GIFT. There must be a piano, of coursebut there usually is a piano. Comparatively few Avell-to-clo families are without one. And a love of Musicwhich, is quite as common as the piano. Assuming these two things, there is no gift that will give so much pleasurenot only on Christmas, but throughout the year and for many yearsas the Metrostyle Pianola. A n instrument by the aid of which anyone can pjay the piano, not merely with technical correctnessbut with the interpretation of a master. Heretofore the only obstacle to the universal enjoyment of the Pianola has been that those who were not musicians, although by its aid they could play any composition, no matt er how difficult, did not always do so with the expression which alone give& the per- formance artistic value. This was not the fault of the Pianola, for, as is well known, it embodies in perfected form every practical feature of the slightest value for phrasing, accentuation and control generally of tempo. But in playing difficult or unfamiliar music the novice, nat- urally enough, is often at a loss how to use them. The Metrostyle attachment shows hownot in a general, in- definite way, but in detail, note by note, being' nothing less than a complete, but in no sense obligatory guide to an artistic and author- itative interpretation indicated by Metrostyle marking. It will be seen at once that this feature, absolutely exclusive, and entirely unique, enlarges almost beyond the poAver of computa- tion, the number of persons who can now fully enjoy the Pianola, and increases in the same ratio its exceptional desirability as a Christmas gift.

S. WORTH $5.00. W. L. Douglas $3.50 shoes have, by their excellent style, easy-fitting and superior wearing qualities, achieved the largest sales of any $8.50 shoe in the world. Just as good as those that have been costing you from $5.00 to $7.00the only difference is the price. If I could take you inte my factory at Brockton, Mass., the largest in the world under one roof making men's fine shoes, and show you the infinite care with which every pair of Douglas shoes is made, you would realize why W. L. Douglas $8.50 shoes are the best shoes produced anywhere in the world. If I could show you the difference between the shoes made in my factory and those of other makes, you would understand why Douglas 83.50 shoes eost more to make, why they hold their shape, fit better, wear longer, and are of greater intrinsic value than any other $3.50 shoe in the market to-day. This Is the reason W. L. Douglas Snakes and sells more men's Goodyear welt (hand sewed process) $3.30 shoes than any other mannf aoturer in the world. That Douglas uses CoronaColt proves there is value In Douglas $3.50 shoes. Corona is the highest grade patent leather made. - MINNEAPOLIS: ' 315-325 Nicollet Avenue ST.

PAUL PROM AMER- ICAN ASSOCIATION IS REVIVED. A St. Paul paper Is responsible for a story to the, effect that a plot has been formed by George Tebeau to force the twin cities out of the Amer ican Baseball association and into the Western league. According to the story, Watkins, the present owfcer of the Minneapolis franchise, is associ ated with Tebeau and intends to se cure a franchise in the American as sociation in some eastern city and keep Minneapolis as a fa rm for his other club. The tale may be denied absolutely. It is perhaps not improbable that within the next few years a deter mined effort may be made to force out the twin cities, and perhaps Milwau kee and Kansas City as well, and take three or four eastern cities, such as Buffalo, Baltimore, Toronto, Jersey City or Providence, into the associa tion. The plan will not be tried this year at Jeast, however, and it is doubt ful if Watklns will ever agree to it, as he has inve-sfea-about Jl,00 in the ' Minneapolis 'Club. According to the contract among: the magnates of the association, the franchise cannot be taken away from any city Without the consent of the owner. Watkins is now on his farm at Wadhams, Mjch., but Ed' Johnston, who nvill represent the Minneapolis owner until the lat ter arrives in this city, denies the tale absolutely.
