1958 Pioneer Press Treasure Hunt

Found by the brother and sister team of Pete Denisson and Minette Nelson underneath the Highway 61 overpass of the creek between Phalen and Keller Lakes in Maplewood. This hunt must not have been associated with the carnival, having started some three weeks after the traditional hunt timeframe. It's made obvious in the first lines of the first clue.
