second-class tourist passengers at so little expense as does the
Canadian Pacific. Tourists are able to travel to the West and
Northwest in nearly as much comfort as passengers in palace
sleeping cars.

I   airy,   perfectly   ventilated,   fully   upholstered   in   leather   or
t  corduroy;  roomy and well-appointed Toilet  Rooms for ladies
and gentlemen,  supplied with  plenty of   water,  towels,  soap,
combs, brushes, etc.    The aisles are heavily carpeted.    Portable
section partitions, which firmly lock in place at night, make an
open interior with no obstructing berth supports by day, and insure
perfect seclusion to each berth by night, which berths are made
up precisely as in modern palace sleeping cars.    A competent
Canadian Pacific Railway Porter, trained in the Company's
palace sleeping cars, accompanies each car through to destination,
to make up berths, and otherwise attend to the comfort of our
patrons.
A full equipment of Berth Curtains, Mattresses,
Pillows, Clean Linen, Lunch Tables, etc., Is provided,
and the Toilet Rooms are supplied with Towels, Soap,
Combs, Brushes, etc. There is a Range in the Kitchen
Apartment, affording ample facilities for making tea and
coffee, warming food, etc. ; and large tanks built in the car

Leaving Boston we pass north through
Lowell to Nashua, over the Southern
Division of the Boston & Maine R. R.,
continuing via the Concord & Montreal
R'y through Tilton,-past Laconia, and
for miles along the beautiful shores
of Lake Winnipesaukee, until Wells
River is reached, where we again utilize the Boston & Maine
system to Newport, the Vermont terminus of the Canadian
Pacific R'y. Now the route is almost "due west" for a number of miles, in full view of Lake Memphremagog, past Rich-
ford, and across the Canadian border to Farnham, St. Johns,
and into Montreal over the great St. Lawrence River steel
cantilever bridge, affording one of the grandest river views
to be seen in the world. Montreal is passed about 9.00 a. m.
every Thursday, and continuing via Ottawa, Port Arthur, Winnipeg, etc., affording a diversity of river, lake, forest, prairie, and
mountain scenery, which thousands from all over the world
travel expressly to see every year.

passengers have choice of
two routes, one all rail via
Seattle, Tacoma, Portland, and the " Mt. Shasta Line,'1 or the
Pacific Coast Steamship Company's Line via Victoria. If the
water route is chosen, meals and berth are supplied while on the
steamer free of charge.

^|HE bodies of these cars are strongly framed to meet any contingency, ARE
JL HIGHER AND WIDER THAN THOSE USED ON ANY OTHER RAILWAY, and are designed to secure uniform warmth, combined with perfect
ventilation in winter, and an abundance of cool air, with freedom from dust, in summer.
The wheels used are of Krupp steel, 40 inches in diameter, with steel axles of the full
size of the iron axles used on other lines. In fact, these cars are so heavy and strong
that the swinging, rolling motion often noticed in lighter cars, and which is the cause
of so-called car-sickness, is scarcely perceptible and rarely noticed oy our patrons. f*l    d^tltl^ttlJItl remarked:  "The nice5t and
*m>\    \iS\r 11 viv I lid II mosi agreeable trip across
fro in Scsttl-c the c°ntinent ever experiB
enced by my family" (see
letter below). The trip referred to was one of the C. P. R.'s excursions, which are now so well and favorably known to the people of
New England that little need be said in praise of the accommodations afforded or the route traversed. Every excursion run by this
Company in the past has furnished its full quota to a long list of
well-satisfied, highly delighted patrons, and today the term "C.P.
R. People's Popular One-way Parties " is synonymous of perfect
success. In the comparatively few years that the C. P. R. has
been before the travelling public it has become justly celebrated
all over the world as the most progressive, thoroughly constructed, and best equipped railway on the American continent.
The extreme care taken by its management to insure safety and
regular time, the proverbial courtesy of its train officials, the
evident lavish expenditure for the finest rolling stock modern
skill can produce, are facts gladly testified to by all its patrons.
For the benefit of those who may not number among their
friends patrons of the C. P. R., the following testimonials are
submitted for consideration, being random selections from very
many received.
Seattle, Wash., Jan. 12, 1893.
W. Benson, Esq., Trav. Pass. Agent C. P. R.
Boston, Mass.
Dear Sir: I would not feel that I had done my duty unless
I wrote to thank you many times for the kind interest you have
taken in securing to my family the nicest and most agreeable trip that has ever been their pleasure to take across the
continent, they having made it seven times before. I consider it quite an honor to you as well as to the line you represent.
The service during the entire trip was without a flaw, and everything went along as smooth as possible.
I have six people coming from Maine to Seattle in April, and
will advise you at the proper time so you can arrange their passage via the C. P. R. in Tourist Excursion Car.
Yours very respectfully,
(Signed) G. W. Vining.

Boston, March 23, 1893.
Mr. H. J. Colvin,
New Eng. Pass. A$ent Can. Pac. Ry.,
197 Washington St., Boston.
Dear Sir : I think you will remember arranging for me
some time since tickets to Montana for some relatives of
mine. It gives me pleasure therefore to quote some extracts
from a letter just received from them, which I am sure
will interest you. They say as follows: " We hardly feel
like asking you to again do us a favor, but you got us to
Montana in such good shape, and we had such a pleasant and enjoyable trip over the Canadian Pacific
(Soo Line), that I presume to trouble you once more
riy wife's boy is coming West, and some time ago I
wrote to him to write you for information in regard to
tourist cars, fares, etc. He has never been away from home,
and knows nothing about such a trip. If these same cars
run on about the same schedule time as last year, I want
him to come that way, for it is so simple to get
along in good shape; there is also a chance that a gentleman from Bradford will come West with him; if so, he
will be all right. I am too far away to arrange for him,
and so I come to you, and wish you would give him such
assistance as he will need. We have been fully satisfied,
and have no regrets that we came West. Our trip was
a success — pleasant, easy, quick, and much enjoyed
by us all, and found to be as you represented in
every particular, and we have often remarked it
was accompanied with about as little anxiety as to
sit in a parlor chair. We ought to have acknowledged
your attention and interest in the matter long ago, and hope
I am not now asking too much of you. I will give you
his address, and if you find time, just drop a line to
him."
You will see, Mr. Colvin, that the accommodations afforded
by your St. Paul tourist car were very evidently satisfactory,
as  you  assured me they would  be.
Very truly yours,
L.  S.  Bean,
Staniford St., Boston.
