NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE CHESAPEAKE & OHIO RY. THE F. F. V. LIMITED is one of the finest trains hauled over any railway track in America. It runs solid between Cincinnati and New York, the route from Washington being over the Pennsylvania system. It has every modern convenience and appliance, and the dining-car service has no superior if it has an equal. The road-bed is literally hewed out of the eternal rocks; it is ballasted with stone from one end to the other; the greater portion is laid with one-hundred-pound steel rails, and although curves are numerous in the mountain section, the ride is as smooth as over a Western prairie. One of the most delightful rides in all the route is that through the New River valley. The mountains are just low enough to be clad with verdure to the very top, and in the early spring every variety of green known to the mixer of colors can be seen, while the tones in autumn take on all the range from brown to scarlet. These facts should be borne in mind by the traveler between the East and the West. H. W. FULLER, Genl. Pass. Agent, Washington, D. C. The Mutual Life Insurance Company OF" NENW YORK, RICHARD A.
