Let Me Tell
You Something
Traveler to the East, I have a word for you :
There are through Pullman aleepert, both
Standard and Tourist, going East from the
Coast at frequent intervals. Over two routes
they travel via Rock Island System for a good
share of the distance. - ,
You can go by way of Ogden, Salt Lake and
Colorado, or you can go by way of San Francisco,
Los Angeles and El Paso, and the Rock Island
will land you in Kansas City, St Louis or Chi
cago. Direct connection in Union Stations at
all three cities for all important points in the
East and South.
Or the traveler via Northern route can take
the Rock Island from Minneapolis and St. Paul
to Chicago.
Rock Island service is the kind that gratifies
best meals on wheels.
