It makes no difference what point you wish to reach, whether it be the remote Northeast of Canada, the Southwest of California, The Gulf of Mexico, the South of Florida, or the Atlantic Coast, you can purchase THROUGH TICKETS via. “The Albert Lea Route,” and reach the desired destination at as LOW RATES and with much more satisfaction than by other routes.

THE NEW CHICAGO LINE. Through Coaches are now run between Minneapolis and Chicago, via Rock Island. This new line was inaugurated only a short time ago, but it is fast becoming the favorite route to Chicago. It traverses the finest sections of the three great States, Minnesota, Iowa and Illinois, passing through several of the most flourishing western cities. The

St. Louis, Minneapolis & St. Paul

SHORT LINE.

"THE PIONEER AND PEERLESS!” Speaks for itself. It continues to be the Shortest, Quickest, and in every particular the model line between Minnesota Points and St. Louis. Solid trains, consisting of Baggage and Smoking Cars, Coaches and Pullman Palace Sleepers are run through without change. Elegant Horton reclining Chair Cars are run between Albert Lea and Burlington on day trains, connections are made in the Grand Union Depot at St. Louis, with trains of diverging roads for all points in the SOUTH, SOUTHEAST or SOUTH-WEST.

7: FOR POINTS WEST AND SOUTHWEST.*

THE NORTHERN PACIFIC RAILROAD. YTY

[ocr errors]

HIS ROAD begins at St. Paul, Minneapolis, and Duluth. Its southern and eastern stems converge at Brainerd, where it starts in a direct line for the Yellowstone. Its present terminus is Glendive, 690 miles

west of St. Paul, and is being rapidly extended to Miles City and the National Park. It is expected that the line will be completed in 1883 to the Pacific Coast, when it will become the

GREAT TRANS-CONTINENTAL ROUTE

FROM THE

CREAT LAKES TO THE PACIFIC OCEAN.

The whole line of travel is through one continuous avenue of agricultural wealth-a country whose resources are inexhaustible, and as yet unmeasured; a climate the most desirable and healthful; the atmosphere dry and pure; sum mers warm and delightful; winters cold and less rigorous than in latitudes immediately south, as is proved by the fact that while roads south of the Northern Pacific were snow-bound for months during the past winter, THIS ROAD WAS NOT SNOW-BOUND A SINGLE DAY IN THE ENTIRE WINTER. This fact should not be overlooked.

The Yellowstone River now being accessible by rail, great interest is becoming manifest in that portion which is made immediately available, and to which the tide of immigration is turning. The soil is unexcelled for richness, adapted to raising of all cereals. The country is well watered, timbered and covered with a magnificent growth of“ bunch grass," making the finest imaginable stock ranges. An inexhaustible supply of fuel is found in the massive beds of lignite which underlie this section. This coal burns with intense heat, and a ton of it is considered equal to two cords of wood.

Appreciating the necessities of the public, it responds to low rates for land seekers, settlers and tourists. Runs through trains and cars. The celebrated Pullman Sleeping Cars, which are the best in the world. PARIOR CHRS BETWEEN FARGO AND BISMARCK.

Makes quick time. Has good road-bed, good engines, good equipment throughout, and is in every respect a first-class line. It is the aim of the management to encourage every enterprise and stimulate all interests which will enhance the interest of its patrons and the line.
