IT LOOKS LIKE A TEINWAY YEAR The demand for Steinway Pianos has started early this season and is greater than ever before in our history. It is interesting to note that the sale' of Steinway Pianos is not con fined to the -wealthy, to the royalty of Europe and most prominent and aristocratic families of New York, Chicago, Minneapolis and other large cities, but the modest, cultured home with an appreciative desire for the best music, every year forms a larger proportion of Steinway Pat ronage throughout the land. The World's Best Piano Is sold in Minneapolis only by the Metropolitan Music Co. Prices from $500 up. Convenient terms of payment. Other pianos taken in ex change. We advise an early selec-* tion as we are able at this time to keep up our stock. As the season progresses it becomes difficult to get orders filled at the factory without delay, owing to similar demands from all parts of the country. Edward R.Dyer Pres. Si My. 41-43 So.

STOLE A PICTURE, NOW CONFESSES "Raffles" Mystery at Waterloo, Iowa, Cleared Up by a Writ ten Statement. Special to The Journal. Waterloo, Iowa, Oct. 8.The "Baf fles mystery, which puzzled the police in the early part of September, has been fully cleared up by the written confession of Chester A.

Ralston, Chester's broth er, and Mrs. Chester Ralston have been released from custody. Chester says he was under the influ of' liquor when the crime was com mitted.

FIND LOST CHILD IS WOLF'S DEN Four-Year-Old Minnesota Had Made Friends with Wild Beasts. nice little doggies' Monday Evening, '^".^'^'^ff Girl Special to The- Journal. 8t. Joseph, Minn., Oct. 8.After be ing lost for two days, during which the entire countryside turned out to join in a hunt for her, 4-year-old Margaret Schweitzer, daughter of a well-to-do farmer of Brockway township, was found unharmed in a wolf's den in the forest near here. The child was wall and apparently contented, but scolded her rescuers for having driven awahy the with whic she had been playing. Accompanied by an older brother and sister and some other children, the child went to the woods to gather nuts. She became separated from the others, and when it was time to go home her com panions looked everywhere for her, but not seeing her hastened home to inform thoir parents. A searching party was immediately formed and twenty farmers scoured the woods all of that night in a vain search .for the little one. On the second day one of the search ers camo to a small hill thickly cov ered with pine and a heavy growth of underbrush. He fonnd a path leading into the thicket and by the path ho found a little blue sunbonnet. The man was compelled to go on all fours to fol low the trail, but finally reached the wolf's lair. In the cleared space around it were strewn chicken bones and feath ers, bits of Bheep pelts and bones. An awful fear of the child's fate flashed thru the searcher's mind and he wasp about to leave the place, when he noticed the little one sitting at the Aac of the den, with one chubby arm around the heck of a wolf cub, which scampered away as the 'searcher^ ap proached He quickly snatched the liti tie one- up and backed hastily out of what he considered a dangerous local ity. The child said that she had discov ered the path leading into the thicket and had followed it and that "there was four nice little doggies in there" and that she hadn't been cold or hungry because she had plenty of nuts to eat.

Following this visit, under the leadership of Bish op Cretin, a small wooden chapel was erected in the southwestern part of the city, on a lot now on the right of way of the Milwaukee railway.
