Joe Ford of Bogata told me a few years ago that pupils from Gintown, a settlement to the south, once waded the black mud to Beulah. That was before the school bus came along. Families now living in what might be called the old Beulah community limits include the Bakers, the Duggers, the Andersons, Froeliches, Rozelles and Adams. I'm sure I have overlooked some others. Rolling on to Fulbright, I stopped near the Travis King store and gas pumps, a place I prefer to call the Key Store. Travis has too many other fish to fry to spend all his time at the store, so he had extra keys made for his customers. They open and close as they please when he's not there. Travis came out of the door puffing his pipe, and we stood in that cold wind and had a little talk. When I said something to Travis about his ever-hot pipe, he grinned and reached for another match. Then he wanted to know if I had been watching the televised strikes talks in Poland. Hesaid he was impressed by the man who heads up the union over there and that he called his wife's attention to him. "Just.look at that fellow," he told her. "He's always .stoking his pipe or reaching for a match or lighting it. He looks like perpetual motion. He's the only man I've ever seen who is as bad with a pipe as you say I am." I was about to ask Travis what his wife said about that, but I thought better of it when he knocked the dottle out and it fell on my shoe. Sam Embry has a mystery tree at his place in Fulbright. His mother, who died last fall, planted some cherry seed, or pits, from cherries given her a few years ago by a grandchild. Later, a tree was born and grew to fruiturity last. See BRYSON, Pg. 2
