With its tiv * thoroughly modern transcontinental passenger trains equipped with ('very convenience, across Montana, be

train service improvements and betterments.
The Northern Pacific traverses tin* richest agricultural and mining section of Montana ami the largest cities in the state and some
of the most important Government Reclamation Projects are on its lines.
The Northern Pacific solicits a fair share of Montana patronage and is prepared to render an equivalent for all it receives.
