Purcell, Ind., March 20, 1897.

To the Editor:  —Will you kindly state in next Journal the exact date the Journal Train will leave Chicago, over what road, the rate for round trip from there, time limit at Philadelphia, and must passage be engaged in advance for that train. Very respectfully, Milton McMurtry, M.D.

Answer:  The Journal Special Train will leave by the Pennsylvania R. R., from Chicago, Sunday May 30. The rate is that of one and one-third on the certificate plan. This has been granted for all roads east of the Mississippi river, and applicacation is pending for the reduction west. Passage should be engaged in advance. Efforts are being made to extend the time limit, but so far without success.
