Vista Del Mar Child & Family Service is seeking foster homes for teen-agers. The agency will pay for the youngsters' room and board and take care of clothing, medical and dental needs.

Homes are needed for both boys and girls, and single people will be considered as foster parents, Apt said.

Talk about a travel deal. How does $3 a night sound, meals included? Or less than $1 for a train trip between cities? Or a transatlantic cruise for less than 9 British pounds? If that's your idea of a bargain, hop in a time machine to circa 1860, just before the outbreak of the Civil War. And bring along your 2011-vintage paycheck. Yes, prices were low for antebellum tourists, but so were wages; a middle class U.S. family might live on $1,000 to $3,000 a year. Travel in those days also entailed dangers and discomforts.
