NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE THE REASON WHY S the tourist, traveler, or invalid returns to California is because S its attractions are greater than those of Europe. Its climate is equable, its hotels unsurpassed in magnificence. The ease and * comfort with which its resorts, as famous as those of the Old S World, are reached by that great system of rail and steamship lines, the Southern Pacific, extending from the Gulf to the S Pacific, make it readily accessible. Why travel half around the S world, to Switzerland, for instance, when the scenery in the Yosemite and other portions of the State is so much grander, . and when its valleys are likened to a vast bed of roses, varied "" with every hue and color? There is no portion of the Alps . that surpasses the magnificent and awe-inspiring Sierras. S There can be no extravagant description of these beauties of S nature. The Bay of Naples, in all its loveliness, is not a whit more beautiful than many resorts on the Pacific Coast. See the S wonders of your own land first, and be able to know whereof ,i you speak. If you desire information about its health and ". oT[ pleasure resorts, its scenery, routes, or ticket rates, apply to any representative of the Southern Pacific for free illustrated pam +i phlets, maps, and time tables.
