I am the original purchaser and individual owner of this 1,000 Mile Refund Ticket, and hereby agree to use it subject to the foregoing contract and conditions.

Sign in Ink.

(Original Purchaser and Individual Owner.)

(Selling agent must stamp this Contract on center of back and send it with Daily Mileage Report to Auditor of Passenger Receipts, who will forward it to Commissioner.)

V. (a) That the last quoted slip, or Agent's Stub, is signed at the time of purchase in his own proper handwriting by the original purchaser and individual owner in ink, with his business address, containing street and number and name of city or town and State. It is torn off and taken up by the duly appointed ticket seller at the time of sale, and is retained by the selling railroad company, which thus becomes possessed of the signature of the owner of the mileage books to all of the conditions of the contract.

(b) That the next to the last quoted slip, or Refund Application Slip, is not intended to be signed by the original purchaser and indidividual owner and until application is made for the refund and is not to be detached from the cover of the mileage book.

(c) That upon presentation of the mileage book for use by the purchaser and individual owner to the conductor of the train, the conductor detaches the mileage coupons corresponding to the number of miles travelled as near as may be, (no fractions of miles being allowed and no distance for less than five miles being allowed for), and presents to the passenger for signature by him identification slips, which must be signed by the passenger in a manner corresponding to his signature upon the Agent's Stub in the possession of the company. These identification slips, when signed, are taken up by the conductor, and returned by him to the selling company. An identification slip must be signed at the request of each successive division conductor on the same main road, as well as upon connecting roads, and should the journey be a long or continuous one, the signature may be exacted several times. Refusal on the part of the passengers to comply will render his mileage coupons valueless for use pro tanto, and he must pay his fare or be ejected from the train. (d) No provision is made for the name or address of the purchaser or individual owner upon any part of the mileage book, and the book, as received by the purchaser after the Agent's Stub is torn off, gives
