A TRUE STORY OF
T was towards the close of a bright summer's day that the prodigal son arrived
at the paternal muuston. He had come by the quickest route, "The Burling
ton." The sun was declining In the west -the only thing that does decline
west of Chlc.igo except base ball and Its slanting rays threw a golden tint
upon the gray hairs ol thonged father who sat on the fiont porch rending the
last "Burlington Route" advertisement.
The gate opened, and the old man peering over hU spectacles illscrlcd a
a ragged tramp coining up the walk, lie was about to set the dog on him, In
accordance with the usual custom of that hospitable region, when the tramp
can.e up, removed a dilapidated bat rim which encircled his brow, and cried,
"father, don't you know me?" "Know you?" returned the old man, after
scrutinizing him a moment over his spectacles, "I would know you If I saw
your hide hanging In a tan yard, It's my own lost b-hoyl" Then the fond
parent fell upon his son's neck and wept wept because ll was so ditty, It hadn't
been washed since Christmas, but he took him In all the same, gave him n
bath and a new suit of clothes and then walked him down to the B. Si M.
depot to sec to what perfection the "Burlington" had (nought their passenger
train service, "l'was marvelous, and the prodigal ron straightway registered a
solum vow that his children and his children's children for all time to conic
should recognize the "Burlington" as the ono great railway whose equipment
was always UP TO DATE.
We don't know how this legend of the prodigal son came clown through
the ages so accurate and free from side Issues, but It's here, Intact and unin
cumbered, ready to adorn a back cover or point a moral. The moral of this
story Is: If you would prosper In this world, travel only by the "Burlington
