See Glorious Colorado En Route
Are you goinig this summer to the
California Expositions? If so, you
should make the journey by way of
Denver and Colorado Springs and
visit the magnificent mountain sights
easily accessible from these two cities.
Your Colorado sight-seeing over, you
can continue on through to the Coast,
to either San Francisco, Los Angeles
or San Diego, or you can step over
and see the attractions of Salt Lake
city, and if desired, make a side trip
to Yellowstone National Park. This
arrangement is made possible for you
through the service of the Chicago,
Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway. Two
splendid itfajpg -"The Colorado Spe
cial" and "U'he Golgr^do ]Bxpress"—
are operated through to Denver over
this route, In connection with the
Union Pacific Railroad.
You can return direct from Califor
nia it you desire, but for a few dollars
more you can see the beautiful Pad
tic North Coast, thence journey east
over the picturesque "Trail yf the
Olympian," through the heart of
three vast mountain chains. This de
lightful journey will amply repay the
few extra dollars that it costs.

boundary. The German is a tough
tighter and cruel, but he Is scared to
death of the Foreign Legion.
Everyone of us that is taken prison

not take prisoners.
The Germans come with their bands
up, singing "hello comrades" and have
their pockets full ot hand grenades
and when they (?et dose up they
throw them so we take no chances.
