You can live comfortably in California
for from $7 to $15 a week.
Many people have the Mea that California Lj such a new place, and that while it may
be very beautiful out there in the sunshine, and with the fruits and flowers in bloom,
it must be a pretty expensive country to visit. That probably the prices for board
and everything else are high, it is not so.
A trip to California is not expensive.
To begin with, we are going to sell tickets to California all during the winter at a
price which will enable most anyone to go, so far as the railroad fare is concerned;
and then every week we start "Personally Conducted" parties from Chicago
to go through to lxs Angeles. For comfort, interest and economy these tourist
parties unquestionably oiler more advantages than any other way. They travel in
I'ullman Tourist Sleeping Cars, in which a double berth, comfortably holding two
persons, costs only f'J from Galesburg.and everythina:in the way of bedding, all of the
very nicest sort, is furnished without any extra charge. The cars are warm and com
fortable and contain every convenience, even to a stove on which tea and coffee can
be made by whoever wishes to use it. A special conductor of The Burlington Route
goes all the way through with each party. He i-i an experienced, thoroughly relia
able man, and his business is to look aftor the comfort of our patrons, attend to
the baggage, take all the care and anxiety from the minds of all who go along, and
point out and explain the many points of interest passed on the way.
California Hotels and Boarding Mouses.
The question of what yon shall do after you get to California may be determined
before you start, because we can furnish you with a little book which tells about all
the hotels and boarding houses, the prices they charge, and the names of the pro
prietors, so that you can write and make all your arrangements for rooms and board
in advance, if you desire. You can get excellent accommodations out there for
from $7 to $13 a week. California is really a cheap place to live in.
So why not make thfi trip if yoa have the time. It don't cost much to go. The trip
can be made in comfort, it is intensely interesting, and you can live in California
on very little. At any rate, investigate. Cut out the coupon in this advertisement,
mail it to Mr. Hart, and he will 6end you, without charge, a handsome book
telling all about California, the book about California hotels and boarding houses,
and a folder which etcplains about the Personally Conducted Tourist Parties. He
will tell yon also all about the price of tickets, and if requested will be very glad
indeed to call at your home to tell you all about the details of the trip,
