The cars arc de signed for the useand comiort or trie colonist, who with his family intend moving west to grow up with the country. The only difference between thee cars and the regular first-class Pullman is that the Col onist sleeper Is not upholstered. There are fourteen sections in each car. and separate toilet rooms for ladies and gentlemen. At night, by means or slidinp head boards and heavy damesk curtains, as much privacy is secured as if in the regular first-class sleeper. Plenty of fresh, clean towels and a good sup ply or water are also to be found. A uniform ed porter accompanies each carlo look nfter tne com:orr anu aiiena 10 me warns 01 pas- sengcrs. and no smoking Is allowed- It cer tainly seems that forchenp and commodious sleeping accommodations, while traveKng. these cars cars onnot be excelled.
