NO LONGER POPULAR
Few Are Sold at Local Railroad
Stations as Reductions Are
No Longer Offered
Old-time round-trip tickets on rail
road lines are a thing of the past.
Every ticket office had a supply of
two-day trip cardboards, but they are
dead stock. There is no advantage in
buying a round-trip ticket these days
unless one wants the assurance that
it will not be necessary to walk back
home in case the #ash runs out.
At the ticket offices of the Penn
sylvania Railroad and Readins: Rail
way the average sale of round-trip
tickets does not reach 100 a month.
There are some points where probably
a penny, or two or three cents, is
saved by buying a round-trip ticket,
but these bargains are few. Referring
to the passing of the round-trip ticket,
William Henderson, local agent for the
Pennsylvania Railroad, said to-day:
"We haven't given a reduction on a
round-trip ticket for a long time and
there are only a few places in the
country where there is any reduction,
and with these it is only a matter of
a few cents.
"The result has been that few people
care to Invest two straight fares on
the trip, and the occasional round trip
is only sold when the passenger mak
ing a short trip in a hurry wants to
be all ready to Jump on the return
"Of course, the selling of round-trip

lor explained some further improve
ments that are planned for that sec
tion during the coming Bummer.
Among the most radical changes will
be the erection of a SIOOO pavilion on
the far slope of Cherry Hill, the ex
treme end of the golf course. This
has been needed for years and the lack
of shelter of some sort in the fai
end of the park has kept lots of small
picnic parties from frequenting that
Another important change will be
[ the ultimate elimination of the sharp
curve in the road just south of Cherry
Hill where the driveway winds almost
iat right angles toward the Market
street entrance to the park. The
t curve is to be broadened and some
"fill" added in such a way as to allow
more room for a turn by motor car 01

several cases of typhoid fever have
