The following complimentary notice
of Jewett Wilcox and the Tremont
house, Chicago, we take Irom the Pock
laland, Illinois, Argm .-
There is no hotel in the West that is
more popular nor any bi tter deserves i s
reputation than the Tremont house,
Chicago. This magnificent palace ol
luxury is one of the best hotels this
side ol New York, and lor comfort, ap
pointments and bill of tare is unsurpass
ed anywhere. There is something more
needed in a first-class house than a good
room and board, ana that is coarteous
treatment. Tho Tremont combines all
these qualities, and not only are guests
given all the comtorts that tnoJeru im
provements can give, but there Is that
about the house that makes t ne feel at
home always. This has been the secret
of the success of tho Tremont. Jewett
Wilcox, the gentlemanly manager and
Messrs. Weutworth and Swilt.the clerks,
seem fo vie with each other as to who
shall add most to the comfort ol the
guest. The house is thp most elegmtlv
furnished in the west and has lately been
refitted and renovated throughout, mak
ing It what its name Implies, the "pal
ace hotel" of the coiiutry. The A.-qui
takes pleasure in commending its readers
and the public, generally to the Tremont,
which stands without a s nperh-r In the
