So niuch haa been said aud written of our Centennial Exhibition that aioioat every one in our broad and oeautiful land is at least desirous of payiug a viait there, and yiewing lor the first and only time in their lives, the remarkable products of our country, gathered froin eyery State nd Territory. To those, especially, who desire economy, we wish to present a reasonable table of prices, or the cost of a trip to the Centennlal, and will take Chicago as a central starting poiut. Excursión ticket, Chicago to Philadelphia, and return, good for sixty days, $25.00 Four meals going and four returning. ü 00 öupper, lodging and breakfast in Philadelphia, 2 50 Aduiission to Exposition, .80 Lunch in Ceutennial grounds, .50 841.50 Each Exposition. $3,50 In presenting tuis array of figures, we have, of coirrse, adopted the shortest and quickest line to the Centennial in or der to give the cheapest, and and that route is by the Gkeat Fort WayHe and Pennsylvakia Line, which runs all its trains direct to the niain entrance, thus saving to the travelr the cost of carriage hire or the annoyance of slow-going atreet cara, which travelers by all other routes must use, in order to reach the Centennial grounds, more than three miles distant froni any depot, except the conimodious one erected by the Pennsylvania Line for the enjoynient of its patrons. Every visitor to the Centennial has testifled to the superiority of the Great Fort Wayne and Pennsylvania Line, with its complete and elegant Parlor, Sleeping and Hotel Coaches, where one can luxuriously recline and view with delight the charming scenery of lofty mountains, beautiful valleys, and the rippling waters of the bright and and sparkling Juniata, together with the fainous HorseShoe Bend, Allegrippus, Pack Saddle, the Crossing of the Susquehanna, and an endless variety of lovely sights not to be found on any other but this popular line. One could spend hours in writing of its beauties and comforts, but space forbids our saying more than this: by all means take the Great Fort Wayne and Pennsylvania line to the Centennial, and reach the very gateway of the Exposition without change of cars or any transfer. Direct connections are made at Toledo with the Toledo branch of the Great Fort Wayne and Pennsylvania Railway.
