A tidal wave of flags has swept
over this city.
The summer awning business

The Stars and Stripes are In demand
everywhere. One flag dealer declared
this morning that he Is 27,000 flags
behind In his orders, in spite of the
fact that his shop is running to ca
pacity all the time. He requires
twelve hours to meet an order for
one flag.
W.lth the announcement that For

and former Premier Vlvlanl of France
will be here within a few days, orders
for the tricolor and the Union Jack

reaching service of the Pullman Company
it is often Dossible to arrange a railroad
journey so that the night may be spent on the train, thus
effecting a saving in hotel accommodations and the hours
unnecessarily used for day time travel.
The Pullman car includes in its construction not only the
asset of increased safety, but every convenience afforded by
the most modern hotel that can possibly be adapted to the
limitations of car construction. And the service further includes
the personal attention of employes trained to anticipate the
individual requirements of the traveling public
In the deserts of the Southwest; in the western mountains;
in rural communities throughout the country, everywhere,
regardless of local conditions, the traveler today can obtain,
wherever he may board a Pullman, the same high standard
of service that he would find in a Pullman car leaving the
terminal of the great metropolis.
Standardized and extended to serve in equal measure
travelers in practically every community, the facilities which the
Pullman Company affords for convenience, safety and comfort
are equalled by no other similar organization in the world.
