The SOHMEE Piano is unique Su
its individuality. There is no other
piano in the world containing every
special feature embraced in the
SOHMEK Grands and the SOHMKB
Uprights. This individuality is per
haps most strongly emphasized in
the SOHMEE tone, and as the tone
of a piano is of greater importance
than any other featuT, then the in
dividuality of the SOHMEE tone
counts for real value. In case de

Pitiable Flight of Former Minneapolis
Man in SeattleFound in a Squalid
Hut Which Called "Home," the
Sad Story of His Life Comes to
Light. From Seattle today comes a pathetic
story of the fate of An'drew Johnson,
for many years a well-to-do resident of
Minneapolis. After the members of
his family had taken from his generous
hand his savings of years, he was com
pelled to leave nis home because of lack
of funds to pay the rent, and found
shelter in a squalid hut. His case is
described as one of the strangest that

was no one in the building,
horses had a ieniarkable escape. They
were standing in a small shed in the
middle of the ruins. The shed was the
only part of the structure to escape
complete demolition and the horses
were led out thru the wreckage without
a scratch.
The building was about 200 feet long
and 60 feet wide. I was a two-story
structure, but the only part left to
show' its height is the office rooms,
which are lying on their side. The rest
of the building is torn and twisted as
if a tornado had struck it. The walls
on the First street side collapsed out
ward while the rest of the building
fell in. The gravel roof is curled and
twisted and is wrapped about the detwo
bris and beams. The destruction was so
complete that the wreckage lies packed
together close to earth.
"The building was the property of
the Chicago & North-Western railroad
and was only rented by us," said J.
H. Morton, treasurer of the company,
today. "We have just completed a
brick warehouse across the street and
were intending to move the first of
next week. Unless rain falls and spoils
the Portland cement, the only damage
sustained will be to the wagons and
office furniture. This will not amount
to more than $1,000 and is covered by

the destruction came a little too quick,
that is all."
The accident is partially laid at the
door of the engineer. There were
twelve carloads of wheat, five of Port
land cement and one of quicklime. The
tram had a good headwav on when it
struck the "bumper." None of the
cars suffered damage except the car
filled with quicklime. The building was

his daughter and her husband departed,
leaving him penniless.
Too feeble to work, Mr. Johnson
sought out some of the friends of his
days of prosperity, and raised enough
money to go to Seattle, where he had
hoped to find light employment. Soon
after his arrival there he was taken ill.
This week he was found in' a dilapi
dated, unclean hovel, six feet wide and
eight feet long, on the sandspit.
Tip to three weeks ago he was able to
walk out occasionally, and beg or find
food in the streets and alleys of the
city. I this way he had lived the
years he was in Seattle. When
he was unable to leave the hut, he was
given a little food by the In'dian women
in the neighborhood.
Johnson was placed on a stretcher
and taken to the Wayside Mission hos
pital, and the board of health ordered
his shack burned. At the hospital one
of the physicians told him he would
never have to live in his hovel again,
and that it was to be destroyed. This
preyed on- the old man's mind and he
arose from his bed and escaped from
the mission. He was not missed until
next morning. Then he was found back
in the squalid shack. He begged to
be permitted to remain there until
death should claim him. He was taken
away by force and is now an' inmate of
the county hospital, where he will be
guarded while an effort is being made
to find some of his heartless children.
