CANADIAN      Only materials of the
PACIFIC best quality enter into
TOURIST the    construction    of
SLEEPER. a Canadian Pacific
Tourist Sleeper. It is
higher, wider and heavier than
those in general use and is altogether of a strong build. Its substantial construction overcomes the
objectionable oscillating motion
which a lighter car invariably sets
up when run above a moderate
rate of speed.
Since commencing
CONSTRUCTION the operation of
OF TOURIST this service be-
SLEEPER. tween the Atlantic
and Pacific Coasts
the C. P. R. has given special attention to the construction of the
Tourist Sleeper. Every improvement that experience has shown to
be conducive to the comfort of its
patrons has been made. A new
Tourist Sleeper, designed after the
pattern of this Company's Standard Sleeper, has been placed on
the Transcontinental service, and
(i)  is without doubt the most magnificent product in this class of
Sleeper ever produced. The special
features of the new sleeper are the
wide vestibules (full width of car),
the large smoking and toilet rooms,

arranged similar to those of the
First Class Sleeper; the latest
pattern car range, in a separate
compartment, the modern gas-
lighting apparatus and the fine
general arrangement and finish of
the interior.
(3) The wheels under the Tourist
Sleeper, as under all this Company's passenger cars, are of
Krupp steel, 40 inches in diameter,
with steel axles of same size as the
iron axles commonly used by other
lines. In general appointment the
Tourist S1 e e p e r of the Canadian
Pacific Railway is unexcelled. It is
designed to secure uniform warmth
combined with perfect ventilation,
in winter, and an abundance of
cool air with freedom from dust, in
summer.
The interior is of birch with
mahogany finish.
SLEEPER In a Tourist Sleeper
BERTHS there are fourteen com-
IN modious sections, each
TOURIST, comprising a lower and
an upper berth, and
each berth large enough to comfortably accommodate two adult
passengers. During the day the
berths are entirely out of the way,
leaving the car-interior free from
obstructing berth supports.   When

may be raised or lowered at will,
and the double windows, fitted
with close screens, exclude dust,

the cushions and backs of the seats
being neatly upholstered in leather.
In each berth there are hooks
on which to hang hats, coats and
wraps.
The   aisle   is  heavily  carpeted.
(6) A number of standard gas lamps
provide ample light.
During the cold season a uniform warmth is afforded by steam
supplied from the engine. Each
car is also provided with a heater
for use in emergencies only.
Detachable side-leaf tables are
provided for luncheons, writing
or amusements.

FOR WHOM   was put into service
INTENDED,    for the  accommodation of purchasers of
second class railway tickets between the East and the Pacific Coast
or intermediate points, but passengers   holding   first   class   railway
tickets may, and many well-to-do
patrons who prefer practising economy   en   route   to   paying   for
transient luxuries,  dp  secure accommodation in the Tourist Sleeper,
It must not be inferred that the
acceptance of second class tickets
in these cars indicates that the accommodations are inferior, or that
its patrons are of other than a
select class of people.
Passengers seeking wholesome,
comfortable accommodation, while
not particular as to elaborate designs and luxurious appointments,
such as are found in the Standard
Sleepers, will find it in the Tourist
Sleeper, and at half the cost.   All
(ii) the comforts that money can purchase are to be found in the Tourist
Sleeper, and its patrons are a
superior class of people.
Of course, those desiring every
luxury that railway travel affords,
as well as every comfort, should
travel in our Standard Sleeping,
Parlor and Compartment Observation Cars.

Upper berth fares are 80% of the
lower berth fares.
A section comprises a double
lower   and   double   upper   berths
(13) (see illustration on page 5), and
will comfortably accommodate
four adult passengers. The cost
in addition to passage ticket is
double the fare shown on page
13 for a lower berth less 10%.

Two passengers holding passage tickets between the same
points may occupy one berth
with one berth ticket at fare mentioned, but a passenger desiring
the exclusive use of a berth must
pay the full fare before mentioned.
(14) As in the Standard Sleepers, the
charge made for accommodation
in a Tourist Sleeper is in addition
to the cost of the railway passage
ticket.
This booklet is intended for the
information of passengers, where
the regular Tourist Sleeping Car
Service is in operation, but parties
of eighteen or more holding first
class adult passage tickets, or
twenty-five or more holding second class adult tickets may make
special arrangements with any passenger representative of the Company for accommodation in a Tourist Sleeper for one or two nights, or
longer runs, at a cost of about
$1.50 per double berth per night.

The Canadian Pacific is the only
railway offering the advantage of
a through Tourist Sleeping Car
Service between the Atlantic and
Pacific Coasts.
The advantage of one management practically controlling the
entire line from Ocean to Ocean
must be apparent to every one.
In fact, no other railway in
America offers so many facilities
to second class tourist passengers
at so little expense as does the
Canadian Pacific. Tourist Car
passengers are able to travel to
the West in just as much comfort
as passengers in Standard Sleeping
Cars.
(17) NOTES FOR      Meals    en    Route.
