To Chirac and the East.
Passengers going east for business, will
naturally gravitate to Chicago as the
great commercial center. Passengers
re-visiting friends or relatives in the
eastern states always desire to "take in"
Chicago en route. All classes of passen
gers will find that the "Short Line" of
the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Rail
way, via Omaha and Council Bluffs,
affords excellent facilities to reach their
destinations in a manner that will be
sure to give the utmost satisfaction.
A reference to the time tables will in
dicate the route to be chosen, and, by
asking any principal agent west of the
Missouri river for a ticket over the
Chicago, Council Bluffs & Omaha Short
Line of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St
Paul Railway, you will be cheerfully
furnished with the proper passport via
Omah'a and Chicago. Please note that
all of the "Short Line" trains arrive in
Chicago in ample time to connect with
the express trains of all the great through
car lines to the principal eastern cities.
