An Excursion to Chicago.
Next Saturday morning-, June 13,
by the 8:15 train the excursion goes to
the National Republican Convention at
Chicago, the railroads having made a
rate $22.50 for the round trip from
Hays, tickets good until July 1. Seats
in the chair car will be furnished from
here and at Kansas City the party will
be reserved in the chair car on the new
"Red Flyer" train on the Alton. The
train is scheduled to reach Chicago
Sunday morning for breakfast. Quite
a number are going from here, Ellis
The Chicago excursion will be the
only one in that section this year. If
you have friends in near-by states now
is your chance to visit them. You
don't have to go to the convention. Go
on the excursion, reach Chicago Sunday
morning and then go visit your friends
a couple weeks, so you get home by
July 1. Come when you please. See
Harry Freese about the trip.
