Many who live in the interior towns and villages have the notion that to buy railroad tickets to lar dlstant points, it is nccessary to go to the larger cities. Others, that by soine chance or design they may, by going off ïrom home eomewhere and first paying local íare to this somewhere or other, they will be able to save sometliUi- in the price. Now in all other business niatters yuo will rather deal with those at home and with whom j'ou have acquaintance and in whom you have confidencc. Buying railroad tickets ia business. The trip may be pleasure- full of pleasure- but the purchase is business. It is more than likely, therefore, if you will only try, that you can buy just as satisfactorily and certainly as economically at your nearest station. The agent may not have the particular ticket you want but if you will allow him a day or 80 he will get it, reading trom your station throughto where you are going. This; is the method on the Chicago & West Michigan and also on the Detroit, Lansing & Northern. If it so happens that you who read this find it inconwnient to reach the agent drop him, a note of inquiry; or, write stating yuor proposed trip, to Yours very truly, General Passenger Agent, Grand Rapids.
