Roads Haul More Coal
Than in April Last Year
In the United States there are
eighty-five railroads that are known
as the principal coal-crrying lines
of the country. Soon. after its or
ganization the railroad war board
requested these railroads to submit
figures on their comicarryuig ousi-
ness as compared withxlast year.
At local railroad offices figures are I
available on the amount of coal the I
railroads of the country hauled dur
ing April, 1917, as compared with the
same month of 1916. ' These figures
show that the eighty-Bye coal-carry
ing roads had a 29 percent increase
in their tonnage during April as com-
nared with Annl of 1V16.
In April, 1917, the roads hauled
659,837 tons of bituminous coal, as
atainst 508.982 carloads during the
same month of 1916.. The number
of workins days in both'months were
the same. And with the same num
ber of working days hv March, 1917,
the eoal tonnage hauled was 8.8 per I
cent less than during , the March of I

National Park Tours
Tht Burlington, with its Several Through-Service Routes to Yellowstone, Glacier
and Colorado, Is essentially the route for National Park travel
VatallstlSsSTsTn A ' wanl lo le" yu 'bout the wonderful scenic tour you
I CllUWdljUllfJ on make over Burlington main lines between Omaha,
uenver and lellowstone fark. The Burlington map
quickly shows you how these may be combined to form
a magnificent circuit tour of the eastern slope of the
Rockies, with 700 miles of mountain panorama, from
Colorado to the Yellowstone. This year you will tour
Yellowstone throughout in automobiles and so touring
"The Land of Wonders," over perfect roads, will be the
acme of sight seeing enjoyment. You may take a
. through sleeper from Omaha to the scenic Cody en
trance, with its ninety-mile mountain automobile ride through gigantic Shoshone
Canyon and over beautiful Sylvan pass one of the world's most inspiring view
points. Your complete ticket from Omaha costs $89 and includes rail fare, Park
automobiles and hotels for five days; the camping way is $80. Your ticket carries
you direct, or in either direction via Denver over the Cody-Denver Scenic line,
through the Big Horn River Canyon; at Loveland, you may detour by auto through
Eates Park ($7.00.). And if all this mountain magnificence still leaves you with a
craving for "more," there is a free side tour, Denver to Colorado Springs, the Pike's
Peak Region and return. Let the undersigned show you how aptly the Burlington's
through-service routes may be combined for such a matchless tour.
SNational Parks T Burlington Ticket
Glacier is the' climax of the rugged grandeur of tha Rockies,
, mighty in its general perspectives, exquisite in its details.
The Burlington's tour of Glacier is one of the grandest
in the travel world three National Parks and Scenic Colorado
on one ticket. Let me tell you how to make it: You travel one
way direct between Omaha and Glacier; you can go one or both
ways via Denver.. You have a free side tour, Denver to Colorado
Springs, the Pike's Peak Region and return. At Loveland, just
north of Denver, detour for Rocky Mountain National-Eats Park
(auto, $7); resume Jrour journey over our Denver-Cody scenic main line, from Colo
rado to the Yellowstone; detour through Yellowstone via the scenic Cody Road
($54.50 hotel wayt $45.50 camping way; five-day automobile tour of the park);
continue your journey thence via Billings to Glacier, or, reverae the circuit. The rail,
road fare for this sweeping tour of the Midwest, Colorado and the east slope of the
Continental Divide to the British boundary from Omaha to Glacier and return is
..only $37.00. "...
