MAn AMdvertisement by THE PULLMAN COMPANY tSafety is an important element in the service afforded by the Pullman Company, and includes not only the safe guarding against loss of life, or injury through railway dis aster, but the protection of health against contagious diseases. All cars used by the Pullman Company are built in its own shops and represent the experience of fifty con secutive years of car construction. Built of the most enduring materials, designed to resist the most violent shocks and to withstand every conceivable strain, the Pullman car affords the traveling public the greatest assurance of safety. Not only is the Pullman car designed for strength, but no effort or expense is spared to make each car as completely sanitary as possible. Smooth painted surfaces, sanitary floors, the avoidance of heavy hangings and superfluous upholstery, scientific ventilation and adequate screening eliminate as far as pos sible the dust and dirt of railway travel. Systematic mechanical cleaning combined with frequent thorough chemical fumigation, maintain each car in a con stant state of cleanliness and sanitation. "Mention the Geographic-It identifies you."
