that from March 1st to April 30th
inclusive there will be on sale
dailv low colonist one way tickets
from all points in Louisiana and
Texas to points in California affoid-
ing an opportunity for men of lim-
ited means to travel to the Pacific
coast at a very small cost. These
periodical low rates have proven

el far more comfortable than ever
