I An Advertisement by THE PULLMAN COMPANY Anticipation of tl ose details of personal service, or equipment,which may add to the passengers' comfort, convenience or safety, is a responsibility which the Pullman Company for fifty years, has consistently fulfilled. In order that no improvement might be neglected, every practical suggestion is actually incorporated in a car under construction in our shops, and once a month these suggested improvements are personally inspected by the Committee on Standards composed of the higher officials of the Company. The development of the sleeping car, the parlor car and the enclosed vestibule are characteristic steps in the constant advance made by the Pullman Company in the perfection of its equipment. To this end every new invention practical for Pullman car construction is carefully considered, and, if contributing to safety or convenience is adapted to car requirements. Many of these improvements are of a highly technical nature and contribute chiefly to safety. Others result primarily in added comfort, or convenience to passengers. All serve to anticipate the passengers' requirements and meet the most exacting demands of the traveling public. "Mention the Geographic-It identifies you."
