Editor Bulletin Through th
kindness of J. B. Shearin, 1 have
recently received two copies of your
paper, and it was almost like a visit
from an old friend. I grew up in
old Hardeman and think I bad some
very dear friends in Bolivar and the
surrounding country. Twenty
three years ago 1 moved to Western
Arkansas. I read in the Bulletin
some names that are dear to me yet,
though quite a number of them
have passed away. I see W. C.
Dorion's name. He was clerk at
Bolivar for a number of years and
transacted quite11 a lot of business
for me. He is all "o. k." D. W.
McAnulty, ot Hickory Valley, is
one of my best friends, also two
Baptist preachers, B. S. Wolver
ton and A. Bailey. The latter was
one of my old school mates. I
could mention more, but that abom
inable waste basket is bo handy.
I am 68 vears old and can do a pret-
ty good day's plowing yet. We
moved out here with eleven in fam-
ily'. Oue danghter died some years
ago and my wife died in September,
1902. Some years ago I wrote to
the Bulletin and it was published

i08t friends. One lady, also a

G. M. Dugan, formerly holding-this
important position is appointed as
sistant general superintendent of
telegraph. Mr. Dugan is 61 years
of age and desired less active rail
This announcement is invested
with a local intereet because of the
fact that Mr. Dugan is a uative of
West Tennessee and is well known
throughout this section of the
State. He was born iu Bolivar,
but left theie when a young man to
learu telegraphy, " after which he
did service at various stations on
the Southern lines of the Illinois
Central. Twenty years ago he wat
stationed at Jackson, Tenn., as
superintendent of telegraph of
Southern lines of the Illinois Cen

such eminent satisfaction as to win
promotion to the higher tit'e of
general superintendent of telegraph
of the entire Illinois Central system
with headquarters in Chicago.
Col. Dugan will be pleasantly
remembered bytlie older citizens of
Memphis as one of the early tele
graph operators in the city. Col.
Dugan was connected with the
Western Union in this city for
years, having been employtd in the
Memphis office when there was but
one wire into the city. At the
outbreak of the civil war Col. Du
gan rendered heroic service as an
operator, beinj, stationed at differ
ent points throughout this section.
He talks interestingly of early times
in Memphis and treasures with
especial fondness recollections of
his career in the Bluff City when
the telegraph business of the then
town was sent and received over a
single wiie. . In those days Thom
as A. Edism, the wizard, was in
dulging dreams of the duplex atd

were predicting his finish in a luna
