What will please you most will be the pleasure
of enjoying your meals, while passing over the
beautiful prairies of Illinois and Iowa, in one of
our magnificent Dining Cars that accompany all
Througn Express Trains. You get an entire
meal, as good as is served in any first-class hotel,
Appreciating the fact that a majority of the
people prefer separate apartments tor different
purposes (and the immense passenger business
of this line warranting it), we are pleased to an-
nounce that this Company runs Pullman Palace
Sleeping Cars for sleeping purposes, and Palace
Dining Cars for eating purposes only. One other
great feature of our Palace Cars is a SMOKINGf
SALOON where you can enjoy your "Havana"
at all hours of the day.

nections being made in Union Depots.
