The reputation of this wonderful region, prob
ably the most unique and certainly the only one of NATIONAL PARK
its kind in the world, becomes more extended yearly. Mankind never tires of seeing or reading of its grand Geyser Fountains, its superb Canyon,
the beautiful Yellowstone Lake, more than 7000 feet above the ocean, the high Mountains, the Cascades and Cataracts, the Bea , Elk, Deer and Antelope, the unequaled Trout fishing and other interesting features found there.
The Park is free to the World and is under the control of the United States Government. Large hotels, electric lighted and steam heated, are found at convenient points and first-class, specially constructed four-horse stage coaches transport tourists from place to place.
Wonderland '98, has a chapter which contains a fund of information about the Park that makes it, perhaps, peculiarly valuable for Schools and Teachers. The features of the Park are described and there is besides a large amount of practical information about the regiou and the ride through it. The Park tour can be made either in the coaches, or on horseback, or bicycles. The book will be sent to any address upon receipt of six cents by CHAS. S. FEE, General Passenger Agent Northern Pacific Railway, St. Paul, Minn.
FREE TO TEACHERS AND SCHOLARS. In 1897 we had thousands of requests from teachers and scholars for Wonderland '97. The edition-a large one-was exhausted long before the end of the year. Wonderland '98 is now ready. It is entirely different from the former book. It has a chapter on The Agricultural Northwest, crammed full of valuable information; one on Yellowstone Park, written especially for teachers; another on Alaska and Klondike, and one on A Canoe Lake Trip, that will be of interest to schools. The book has a high art cover, designed by Lyendecker, and it is profusely illustrated from new photographs. The Northern Pacific Railway will send the book and a revised map of Yellowstone Park upon receipt of six cents in stamps or postal order. Send to CHAS. S. FEE, General Passenger Agent, St. Paul, Minn. Write address plainly and state where you saw the advertisement.
