W. J. Hills , portrait and personal sketch
of a rising young railroad man. Mr. W. J.
Hills entered the railroad service as night
operator at Lansing , Mich. , for the Michigan
Central railroad at the age of 15 years , he
was successively appointed to day operator ,
extra agent , and agent at Columbiaville ,
Mich' , an important station on that road ,
which position he held until 1SS2 , when he
resigned to seak his fortune in the west. He
was appointed agent of the Burlington and
Missouri Rtver railroad company in the then
new state of Nebraska in the spring of 1883.
His sterling business qualities were soon
recognized by that company , and he was
soon promoted to the position of train dis
patcher , which he held until the Paducah ,
Tennessee and Alabama secured his ser
vices upon the opening of their road. Mr.
Hills has held the position of chief train
dispatcher and assistant superintendent of
the company , and to his efforts is largely due
the success and popularity of the road. His
promotion to superintendent is a deserving
one. He is now but thirty-one years of age ,
and is probaly the youngest superintendent
of a railroad in this country. He has made
many friends since he has been in Paducah ,
both personally and for his road No young
man has a more promising future before
him. Paducah Standard.

ner , hardware merchant , same town , says :
Electric Bitters is just the thing for a man
who is all run down and don't care whether
he lives or dies ; he found new strength good
appetite and felt just like he had a new lease
on life. Only fifty cents a bottle at A. McMil
