NEWS OF TIHE RAILWAYS.
Jhleago's Great Road, the Famous Maple
The Chicago, St. Paul & Kansas City *ar
the first railroad in the country to issne
speoial transportation advertising for thi
World's fair at Chicago. That is enterprise
and an illustration of the sort of manage
ment that within a few years has trans
formed the Chicano, St. Paul & Kansan
City from a short and unimportant line,
with little to encourage its continuance, so
one of the most prominent and most popu
lar lines in the northwest. With its termi
nals in Chicago, Kansas City and St. Paul,
it unites the east, the northwest and the
southwest. The territory it embriaces is
the garden spot of America. In it dwell
3,000,000 people whom this great road ao
commodates. The great states of Illinois,
Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri and Kansas are
tapped by its lines.
The general headquarters of the road is
at bt. Paul, while the freight and pas
senger departments direct their business
from Chicago. In the latter city the com
pany's trains arrive at and depart f'om the
Grand Central passenger station, com
pleted at the beginning of the present year,
and acknowledged to be without a peer in
this country. The three main lines of the
road unite at Oelwein, in Northeastern
Iowa. Aside from these are several short
branches, all of importance, the longest
being from Sumner to Hampton, Iowa.
The latter state is divided nearly in halves
by the road, which crosses its very finest
portion. The mileage in Missouri, Kansas
and Minnsota is comparatively small, but
in Illionors again increases, the northern
and most populous part of the Prairie
state reverberating to the thunder of its
Mach of the success of the road is due to
the ability and energy of a railway man
well known to many in Rochester, W. I.
Blusenbark, the traffic manager of the road.
In his intercourse with the pstrons of the
road he has won thousands of friends for
hiriself and his company.
The equipment of the Chicago, St. Paul
& Kansas-City is unexcelled by that of any
road in the country. Its vestibuled com
partment sleeping cars are modelsof lux
ury, comfort and convenience. No other
line west of Chicago runs compartment
sleeping cars. The dining car service is
fully up to the requirements of the most
fastidious and luxury-loving of modern
travelers, In short the Chicago, St. 'Paul
& Kansas City is the beat line betwedn Chi
cago and -t. Paul, Minneapolis and the
northwest, between Chioago and the prin
cipal points in Iowa, between Chicago and
the southwest. Persons going from east
trn pointsrto Chicago and beyond will do
well to bear these facts in mind.-Roohes
