THE NEW TIME CARD.
The Charge of the Northern Pacific Trains
Is Somewhat of a Surprise.
The long-talked-of change in the ar
rival of the Northern Pacific passenger
trains will take place next Sunday,
Jan. 8, but the new time card is alto
gether different than the one expected.
The reports for the past few weeks
have led everyone to believe that the
only change would be in the time of
No. 1, and that the train would reach
Billings at 2:30 or 8 o'clock in the
afternoon. Both trains are affected.
No. 2 will arrive in Billings at 8 a. m.,
instead of 8:80 as at present, while No.
1 will reach Billings one hour and a
half later, or 8 o'clock in the evening.
No change will be made in the time of
the Red Lodge or Gebo trains.
The Burlington railroad announces
that on Sunday. the time of its passen
ger trains will be changed to corres
pond with the Northern Pacific. No,
42 will leave Billings at 8:80 a. m.,
instead of 9:15, and No. 41 will arrive
st 7:10 p. m., instead of 6:02.
