Missouri and Pacific Railways and Iron Mountain Routes

I bid on an old advertisement on Ebay but lost out when the bidding got too high for me. I did manage to copy down the text which follows:

* I was hard pressed to find the location of "Indian Territory" as of 1899. It was Oklahoma.

** This is an exact quote. Don't know if it's an error or if it was meaningful in those days.
