Such was the experience, years ago, of many who went out searching for a place to live. The places for rent were not advertised in those days, as they are today, and it was the custom to start out looking, and walking and walking, trying to find a suitable place to hang up your hat. There's wiser way today. Simply sit back in an easy chair--and glance through the Classified columns of the Globe-Gazette. Check the Rental ads that appeal to you. Compare the various places offered --the locations, desirability, rental, etc. Jot down the addresses of the ones that impress you favorably--and you are ready to start on a short inspection trip. That's all there is to it, today--and no need to walk block after block searching for a place to live. There's no grief to armchair shopping for a room, apartment, or house. Besides, it's easier and so much more satisfactory as compared to the "wondering-walking-looking" method which is now out-of-date.
