Gorman The Texas & Pacific railroad be- tween Jefferson and Texarkana was first surveyed and right-of-way clear- ed of timber diagonally across the Odell-Gorman farm. It came in at the southwest corner, and went out near the old Stephens home; then on to near the Rev. Jesse Dodd new dwelling just completed.

He labored in his shop at the slow painstaking- task of hand-setting the type that was to transfer its message to the printed page to give the citizens of Cass County the latest news of that day. f At the same time, in another shop a thousand miles away, Thomas A. Edison was laboring just as slowly, just as patiently, and just as persistently to give the world the electric light. <The Citizens Journal was just six months old, when, on October 21st, 1879, Edison threw the switch that lighted the first practical incandescent lamp. *'So this year, that marks the golden anniversary of The Citizens Journal, marks also the Golden Jubilee of the Electric Light.
