It gives reliable accident insurance to its members cheaper than the same can be obtained from accident insurance companies, and works throughout all its divisions and posts constantly for the welfare of its membership as well as for commercial travelers generally, and it has by its work saved merchants. manufacturers and commercial trav- elers millions of dollars through legislation, and conces- sions obtained through week-end tickets, interchangeable mileage, and other forms of railroad transportation.

PURPOSES AND OBJECTS The main purposes and objects of this Association shall be to bring about a better acquaintance and more fraternal and binding feeling between persons engaged in the business of commercial travelers, and the buying and selling of mer- chandise at wholesale, and to that end to secure from all transportation companies and hotels just and equitable rates for commercial travelers as a class; and to further elevate the social and moral character of the members of the Association, and to establish hospitals if necessary, D.

Houston, Texa Natioal Preident for the sick and disabled, the object and purpose of said Association being to create and establish a fraternal bene- ficial association and not an organization for pecuniary reward or profit. To secure the abolishment of all local, state and county licenses exacted from commercial travelers, To obtain fair and equitable allowance of baggage and bag- gage rates. To effect all legislation benefiting our member- ship and the commercial interests generally. To provide a benefit fund for members of the Association in case of accident or death by accident. WHAT THE TRAVELERS' PROTECTIVE ASSN. HAS DONE. The T. P. A. of A. is useful to its members and others, not only in providing inexpensive accident insurance, but in many other substantial ways, as indicated below: Every piece of interchangeable mileage in use today is directly the result of the efforts of the T. P. A. of A. 4 KENTUCKY DIVISION, TRAVELERS' PROTECTIVE ASSOCIATION OF ATMERICA Excess baggage rate regulation' by law in many States is the result of the untiring efforts of the T. P. A. of A.

The Travelers' Protective Association gives this oppor- tunity. Can any afford to let it slip by KENTUCKY DIVISION. Appreciating the incomplete condition of the Associa- tion without the state of Kentucky, Post A was organized at Paducah, in July, i893, with sixty charter members, which membership has increased many times over, the President being J. A. Bryant and the Secretary and Treasurer. Finis E. Lack. With Paducah for the entering wedge into Kentucky, the Association felt that here, in the State of beautiful women, fine horses and good whiskey, there must of necessity be more intelligent commercial men, who would immediately recognize the value of the Travelers' Protec- tive Association and two able -missionaries were sent from headquarters at St. Louis in September, I894, to enlighten the eligible subjects at Louisville, Owensboro and Hender- SoI1. Post D was formed at Louisville with forty-eight charter members, Post B at Owensboro with seventeen and Post C at Henderson with sixteen. Post F of Lexington was organized in 19o8 by members of Post D. Post I of Bowling Green and Post J of Hop- kinsville, were organized by members of Post D, in May, 19o9. Post E of Mayfield was organized in 1894 and is one of the oldest and livest Posts in the state. The State headquarters have always been located at Paducah because it was the initial city and had the largest membership. This latter, however, will not be so after this year, if Louisville continues to increase in number as it has done within twelve months, having more than doubled the membership in that time. When Post D Louisville was organized in 1894, Geo. L. Sehon was elected President and A. H. Beckmann, Secre- tary and Treasurer. Mr. Sehon labored hard to increase the Post but met with little encouragement. In 1896 there came to Louisville a stranger to our city, but a friend and member of the T. P. A., Sam P. Jones. After transferring his membership to Post D, Louisville, he at once became in- terested and materially aided in building up the Post, and was elected its President in the same year, serving in that capacity until March i6, i899, when he declined to serve any longer. Mr. Jones was succeeded by Mr. Frank S. Ouerbacker, a charter member of the Post and an enthusiast on T. P. A. The growth of Post D was especially due to these officers and those ever ready workers, W. L. Farris, James T. Short, 'soi Gray, Geo. H. Hummel, J. P. Ouerbacker and a few others, including A. H. Beckmann, Secretary and Treas- urer. At the Annual Convention in Omaha in June, 1898, Kentucky contended for the next Annual Convention to be held in the city of Louisville in i899. Although Ken- tucky had other good States as competitors, who hoped to bring it to their respective States, Kentucky was victorious in securing the Convention, and Louisville was named as the city. In selecting Louisville the Conventon chose wisely, because the membership of Post D, Louisville, more than doubled itself in a short time. 3 KENTUCKY DIVISION, TRAVELERS' PROTECTIVE ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA Whether the Convention was a success from a business point of view, as well as pleasure, all those who visited Louisville can best answer. The State headquarters are now located in Louisville. The following are the present State Officers: E. L. KERLEY, President, Bowling Green. W. H. BRIZENDINE. Third Vice-President, Mayfield. F. E.

Mr. Ernst Lackey, the present Secretary and Treasurer, has held this office since igoo, with the ex- ception of two years. His record speaks for itself. POST D, LOUISVILLE. Post D, Kentucky Division, T. P. A., was organized on the Sth of October, i894, at Louisville, Ky. There were 48 charter members, Chas. Weller, D. M. Willeams, W. J. Norton, F. S. Ouerbacker, Geo. Adlam, R. H. Patterson, D. B. Sperry, T. L. Goff, J. S. Pope, A. J. McCord, J. C. Brewing, J. R. Nunnely, B. B. Cobleus, Owen Gath- right, Jr., E. H. Bowen, H. H. Beckman, J. E. Slater, C. E.

Jansing, Fulton Gordon, D. 0. Talcott, Luther R. Stein and Chas. W. Milliken. There have been only two Secretaries. H. H. Beckmann and Jas. T. Short. It is worthy of note that Mr. Jas. T. Short has been Secretary of Post D since 1x902. Post D takes great pride in the fact that its members have taken prominent and active part in the affairs of both the National and State Organization. In x9o8 one of its members, Mr. Henry O.' Gray, held the exalted office of President of the National Organization, being elected at the National Convention at Milwaukee. Quite a number of the State Division Offices are filled by Post D members every year. Mr. Short having held the State Secretaryship for a number of years. At present three Directors and four out of the eight State Chairman of different Committees are members of Post D; the Secretary of the State Division, Carl H. Finck, is also a member of Post D. In June, 1899, Post D had the distinction of entertaining the National Convention in Louisville, and will entertain the State Con- vention in May of this year. Post D has enjoyed a steady growth since organization Loth financially and numerically. Beginning with 48 mem- bers, it now boasts a membership of 72o and no doubt but that at the close of the fiscal year, the roster will have reached the 8oo mark. Among the members are found the leading business men of the city. In the past years the meetings have been held at the Galt House and the Louis- ville Hotel; at present the meetings are held at the Tyler Hotel on the last Saturday of each month. The present officers are Chas. W. Milliken, Pres.; Jas. T. Short, Secretary and Treasurer; Dr. W. N. Briney, Chaplain. Board of Directors, Dr. Ben L. Bruner, Edw. Altscheler, Carl H. Finck, D. 0.

A new epoch in history began on the night of May 9, I909. Bowling Green, the proudest city in the "purchase," was crowded with throngs of visitors. They came from all parts of Kentucky. Indiana was there, Tennessee was there, the eyes of the nation were turned that night to Bowling Green. Men of power and eloquence came to lend their service. The eloquent Bruner was there; the rotund form of Short was seen; the venerable and inimitable Tarpy came with his prophetic vision to make the evening memorable ever after; the long, lean, and unbending form of Althsheller was seen moving quietly amidst the gathering of that evening; Milliken was there not to gather the taxes of the populace, but to scatter the honey of human happiness and good cheer. They were there from all walks of life, the lawyer without his lawbooks, the banker without his overdrafts the doctor without his pills, the preacher without his sermon, the merchant without his creditors, the salesman without his expense book, they came from the east and from the west, from the north and from the south. The meaning of all this gathering of the saints was simply this, they came to witness the birth of a new child in the great family of the Traveler's Protective Association. A banquet preceeded the solemn event. There flowed freely the wine of brotherly love, and the milk of human kindness. They dined and they smoked; they labored and brought forth a new born post, and the name thereof was Post I. She was a lusty child, and in her birth hour gave evidence of future usefulness and promise. The destinies of this new born post was committed to the only original Joseph L. Wright, who was elected President. The child grew in strength and power, until, when only a twelve months had passed, she was en- tertaining in a right royal fashion the whole Kentucky family of T. P. As. Another twelve months rolled by, she claimed the right and made good her claim, of naming the head of the State Division, Hon. E. L. Kerley, of J. M. Robinson, Norton, etc., fame, but now leading a quiet domestic life in city of parks and schools, was elected the President of the Kentucky Division. Dr. A. H. McCooler, D.D., Chaplain, Post I. also State Chaplain, Kentucky Division. Post I has not been idle in her short life. She has convinced the L. N. Railway of the advisability of a new train, between Owensboro and Bowling Green; she has greatly assisted in securing for her city new and better freight rates, she hopes to have the honor of announcing soon that she has assisted in securing for Bowling Green a new and beautiful railway station that will be in keeping with the pride and growth of the city. Post I, being an organization of local commercial in- terests, is the exponent of every thing that will help in the building of a greater city. Her mission is to boost, to wave the banner of progress, to talk the interests of her city, and to draw attractive enterprises to her dominions. To do all this successfully she combines with all other commercial interests in the city and seeks to ally herself with all genuine progress. Post I believes in using every available means to bring into her fold all eligible material, and as witness of this, in the short years of her history there have been on her rolls the names of men, all of whom have added strength and vigor to her life. The present President of this Post is the greatest hustler in the city of Bowling Green. He believes in its future, and in working for its interests. He plys his trade, and his trade is pushing Bowling Green. President of Post I, President of the Business Men's Club, Councilman from the First Ward, Past Noble Grand of Odd Fellows, Deputy Grand Master of Kentucky Odd Fellows of Warren County Fair Association, the Hon. W. C. Sumpter will always be found on the front seat in a meeting for the good of the city, and in the interest of progress and advancement of all worthy causes. Post I believes that she has the most efficient, the most faithful and the most successful Secretary in the State in the person of J. W. Worrick, and so we might go through the entire list of officers and members. Each year she goes to the state meeting with a clean record and a pure heart. She now has plans for further work and hopes in a short while to make her calling and election sure by adding sub- stantially to her rolls by giving good and worthy help to her sister posts, and by her unselfish work for the real good of the Association of which she is a part. POST J, HOPKINSVILLE. Post J, Hopkinsville, was organized in April, igog, with a membership of 62. The charter list was secured by Sam P. Jones, ex-Natl. President, Jas. T. Short, Carl H. Finck, and others of Louisville. W. C. Doherty was the first President, and 0. H. Eckles the first Secretary. Shortly after organization it was the pleasure and privi- lege of Post J to entertain the State Convention, which greatly strengthened the Post and materially added to its growth. While Post J is not so large nor so old as some others in the Kentucky Division it has always remained a substantial body. The charter members were men active in the business affairs of Hopkinsville and were as follows: E. E. Anderson, G. H. Champlin, R. E. Cooper, J. W. Daniel, L. H. Davies, N. F. Dontch, C. L. Daniel, Lee Ellis, J. M. Forbes, Wm. Grau, Jr., G. E. Gary, F. F. Henderson, Archie Higgins, A. J. Jackson, C. S. Jarrett. H. L. Leub- kecker, Jacob Mayer, T. L. Metcalf, W. D. Moore, M. E.

II kENfLJCKY =O000gN the Foutrh of July, 1776, the Continental Con- E El gress adopted a Declaration of Independence, O g and in December of that same year, Kentucky 07f0=1111 County was established by Virginia. Harrods- burg was the county seat. The population steadily increased and in 1780 the Legislature of Virginia ordered the County of Kentucky to be divided into three counties, Jefferson, Fayette and Lincoln. In February, i791, the Congress of the United States agreed to admit Kentucky into the Union as an independent State, to take effect June I, 1792. Ac- cordingly a convention assembled at Danville and a consti- tution for the new Commonwealth was adopted. Everybody hears of Kentucky. One chief reason per- haps, is the fact that in the affairs of the Nation its men have figured so bril- liantly. The first Re- publican President of the United States, he who is coming m. ire and more to be con- sidered the greatest man of modern times, was born in Hardin C o u n t y, Kentucky, Abraham Lincoln. A statesman wise, just and brilliant, who said he would rather be right than Presi- dent, lived all his life in Kentucky, and rep- resented her in the Congress of the Unit- ed States, Henry NEW STATE CAPITA Clay. Daniel Boone, the nation's path-finder, said with pride, I am a Kentuckian. David Crocket, the hero of the Alamo, the man who said "Be sure you are right, then go ahead," was a Kentuckian. Fitch, who invented the steamboat, was born in Nelson County, and Ephriam McDowell, one of the world's greatest surgeons, was a native of Danville. No greater journalist ever lived than George Dennison Prentice; no greater preachers than Lard or Willetts or Broaddus or Moses, no more profound Senator than James Beck. John G. Carlisle, William Lindsey, John Mason Harlan all loved to claim Kentucky as their home, and the list is endless. Through, Zachary Taylor, whose grave is just outside of Louisville, John Morgan, the intrepid raider of the South, General John Lewis of the Orphan Brigade, John C. Breckinridge, General Simon Bolivar Buckner and a host more from this land of inspired men and deeds. The average altitude of Kentucky is about 8oo feet slop- ifig from a height of from 2ooo to 3000 feet in the Alle- ghenies on the East to the Mississippi River on the West where the altitude is about 300 feet. The State has ex- tensive drainage system including a number of important navigable rivers as well as many small streams. Probably the most fertile farming territory in the whole country is to be found in the rich Blue Grass Region which produces a fine quality of grass, corn, hemp, tobacco and fruits. This vast territory is underlaid by lime stone strata whose gradual disintegration supplies the necessary elements to maintain a high degree of fertility even with exhausted cultivation. Outside of this section are found large stretches of highly productive bottom lands along the many streams which rival the Blue Grass. The absolute area of improved farm lands has increased every decade between R t183o and ig9o to the WI extent of 65 per cent. During the last twen- ty years the average size of farms decreas- ed from 119.4 to 93.7 acres. The farms op- erated by owners are 67.2 per cent of the total number which is a much greater per- centage than is found t . in States far t he r South, the difference - being largely due to L AT FRANKFORT the insignificance of cotton raising in Ken- tucky and the small number of negro farmers. For a number of decades Kentucky's annual tobacco crop has ranged from one-third to one-half of the total raised in the United States. The Kentucky thoroughbred is known all over the civil- ized world as the highest type of horse flesh. It is interest- ing to note that as early as 1783 a race course was established near Harrodsburg, known as Hoggins Rade Pass. In 1776 John Harrison brought from Virginia a thoroughbred which ran over the Jefferson Street track in Louisville and beat all the local horses. Lexington did not have a race track until I789, but it grew rapidly in popularity and importance, and many of the fastest of American horses were bred and trained in this world famous Blue Grass region. During the last ten years the raising of blooded horses has given away in a measure to the raising of mules. Cattle, sheep and swine breeding has steadily grown in importance with the development of Louisville as a live stock market. P7--, iq= .1 : Though Kentucky is essentially an agricultural state, a group of important manufacturers depending principally on A bountiful Providence has showered with a lavish hand natural resources upon Kentucky such as are enjoyed by few other States in the Union. Kentucky contains 13,000 square miles of coal fields. It has the third largest area but is easily the first in the variety and quality of high class carmels and coking coals.

Kentucky has large deposits of lead, zinc, spar, cobalt, oil, gas, Devonian and Neocene Clay rock phosphate (72) and lump gravel.

BARDSTOWN, KY. Where Stephen Collins Foster. Wrote the Immortal "My Old Kentucky Home." on the whole American continent to call home. It has been aptly described in the following lines: "Not the oldest nor yet the youngest; not the richest nor yet the poorest; not the largest nor yet the least; but take it all in all, for men and women, for flocks and herds, for fields and skies, for happy homes and loving hearts, the best place outside of heaven the good Lord ever made." 12 KENTUCKY flavor because the beer was boiled in a copper still over a wooden fire and the grain in the beer was generally scorched giving a scorched flavor to the whiskey. Then it was an exceedingly skillful distiller who did not spew his still even up into the 70s which would, of course, give the whiskey the odor of the rank and exceedingly of- fensive "backings." Beginning in the 8os, however, great improvements have been made in our methods of distillation and the product today is really very far superior to the whiskey that our grandfathers drank although the general public labors under exactly the opposite impression. Back in the 70s the production of whiskey in Kentuck had grown to something like seven or eight million gallons per annum but when the Carlisle bill was passed in 79 ex- tending the bonded period from one to three years it gave us a boom that resulted in a production of over fifteen million gallons in i8So, and of over thirty-one million gal- lons in x88i, and of over thirty million gallons in i883Z. This was a mistake in view of the fact that the demand at that time amounted to only about ten million gallons per annum and the result of over production was the distillers had to send a vast amount of whiskey to foreign countries so as to avoid paying a tax of ninety cents a gallon at the expiration of the bonded period. Most of the whiskey that was sent abroad did not find a market, however, and was gradually returned and used up. KENTUCKY WHISKIES. A hundred years ago the distillation of bourbon whiskey in this State was considered an industry of very small pro- portious. The Kentucky distillers in those days were really Ken- tucky farmers and the distillery was merely an adjunct to R. E. WATHEN President Kentucky Distillers and Wholesale Liquor Dealers' Association.

The roads were very bad a hundred years ago in Ken- tucky, and corn was very cheap, so a farmer found great difficulty in disposing of his surplus corn, but when he con- verted it into bourbon whiskey he could keep it for years. if he wanted to, and it constantly improved in value, but at any time he could -use it as a legal tender in settlement of any debt to bankers or merchants or stock traders, and it was accepted in payment of salaries by preachers and by school teachers, because they could also use it in the pay- ment of their accounts. With the advent of the Internal Revenue laws in the 6os the distilling business in this State began to assurne commercial proportions and as early as the late 6os we had some distilleries in Kentucky mashing as much as too bus- els of grain per day or more. "Back in those lines, however, a distillery that mashed too bushels of grain per day was considered a mammoth enterprise and the owner was looked upon as a would-be monopolst very much as we look on houses today that mash 5,ooo bushels of grain every twenty-four hours. The Kentucky whiskey made in the early days was really a very crude product and it had an exceedingly undesirable GRAEME McGOWAN Secretary Kentucky Distille and Wholesale Liquor DealJr As'ociatio The demand for Kentucky whiskies continued to grow and about the beginning of the 9os it was estimated the country was using annually about twenty million gallons from this State.

These laws, however, did not prohibit the purchase and use of alcoholic beverages and it was soon discovered that everybody in dry territory was buying whiskey by the case and storing it at home with the result that they used more whiskey in this way than they had done when they purchased by the drink from saloons.

It wasn't a great while, however, before the distillers and dealers realized that the effect of prohibition was to increase the consumption of liquors and this was emphasized by the annual tax payments in this State rising from twenty milion gallons per annum to nearly thirty-three million gallons per annum. The money invested at the present time in the manufac- ture and distribution of Kentucky whiskey is estimated at many thousands of women, most of the latter being employed in the bottling-in-bond warehouses throughout the State. For barrels alone the distillers expend every year about 2,5oo,ooo dollars per annum and they are said to give em- ployment directly and indirectly, that is in whole or in part, to about twenty per cent of the workers in this State. For instance, distillers give an immense amount of busi- ness to the Insurance companies and the banks of the State depend very largely on them in making their loans.

Such propositions and conditions as are meritorious in there nature are to be sup- ported. The individual manufacturer can do little in either direction, therefore, organization is absolutely necessary. To communities at large the advantage of manufacturing is indeed apparent. Manufacturing brings prosperity to cities, to villages and towns in which it is conducted, and in turn agricultural sections profit as well as th. larger dis- tributing centers. Great is manufacturing. As a body, manufacturers have at heart the welfare of their operatives and employes. Indeed they cannot but be interested in all such subjects as Workmen's Compensation and Accident Protection, if only upon the basis of so low a motive and incentive as their own personal interest.

The Kentucky Manufacturers' Association was organized in April, 1912, by a few manufacturers and patriotic men of Kentucky for the purpose of the general betterment of manufacturing conditions within the commonwealth. The manufacturers of Kentucky no less than the manu- facturers of other States are confronted with the necessity for solving many momentous problems, which mean much to the individual manufacturer, oft-times more than he con- ceives and realizes.

There are many subjects to which the Kentucky Manufacturers' Association will give its helpful and con- structive attention. It will give heed to matters hanging to do with factory inspection, with the study of expedi- ents for fire prevention, and with methods of improving risks with a view to reduction in rates of insurance. It will give heed to problems of transportation, equitable rates of freight, and fair adjustment of all problems in connection with transportation. There wvill be commit- tees charged with special attention to certain problems and difficulties of manufacturers in general, which the individual is powerless to do. Every question which concerns manufacturing or which is of interest to manu- facturers will enter into the business and the calculation of the Kentucky Manufacturers' Association.

DICKERSON, General Secretary, New Post, Ky. PERRY VICTORY CENTENNIAL. LOUISVILLE, 1913 One dozen cities will act the part of host in the shift- ing scenes of the Centennial Celebration of the Victory of Commodore Perry on Lake Erie. On the actual scene of the victory a monument to cost nearly a million dollars will be erected to the memory of Perry. The series of celebrations will include other memorable engagements of the War of 1812. The celebration will open in one of the Lake cities, which has not yet been selected, July 4, 1913,, and from week to week the scene will shift until the last week of October, the closing week, which will be celebrated in the city of Louisville. The Interstate Com- missions having the celebrations in charge paid Louisville a signal compliment in designating it for the closing week, (luring which will fall the Centennial Anniversary of the Battle of the Thames. The exact nature of the celebration in Louisville, as well as in the Lake cities, has not yet been decided upon, but it will in all likelihood include a river pageant lasting the entire week, and will probably be the only city which will reproduce the Battle of Lake Erie and other 1812 War scenes in fireworks, so that the Louisville celebration will be distinctively( differ- ent from the other eleven celebrations in the Northern cities. It is expected that the Louisville celebration will attract a quarter of a million people to Louisville during the week. The details of the Louisville arrangement will shape themselves largely from the historic part that Kentucky took in that war, after wresting the great Northwestern territory, a generation before, from the hostile French and more than hostilt Indians, and having seen it carved into the States of Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin.

One- fourth of her men of soldier age volunteered for service. Henry Clay forced a declaration of war, and by his con- summate skill, after the close of the war, contributed more than any other one man to secure peace.

MORROW, SECRETARY LOUISVILLE COMMERCIAL CLUB. HE first settlement on the Falls of the Ohio was made by a little band of pioneers during the latter part of I778. Situated in the rich valley of the majestic Ohio, surrounded by a territory unsurpassed in the whole world for its fer- tility, contiguous to vast sections rich in mineral wealth whose development will not reach their climax during this generation, it is not to be wondered that for more than loo years this beautiful city has enjoyed a steady, substantial growth along practically every line. The city now has an area of 26.79 square miles, and is surrounded by a boulevard and natural park system not equalled by any other city on this continent. Louisville, for many years, has been famed as a great export market for tobacco products, farm implements, fur- niture, paints and varnishes, pianos and organs, sewer pipe, cotton seed products, flour, boxes, sole leather, jeans, cordu- roy, cement, plumbers' supplies and other manufactured JEFFERSON COUNT articles and is also the largest live stock market in the South. While having many large manufacturing industries there is room for more. Situated in almost the exact center of the population of the United States, possessing the finest inland waterway harbor in the country, a terminal for ten trunk lines of railway, the city is situated ideally as a rare center for raw material, and a distributing point for the manu- factured article thereby enjoying the opportunity of partici- pating in the savings resulting from cheapened products as well as the easy enjoyment in the profits from a ready consuming market. The Louisville Commercial Club and other civic organizations have recently inaugurated a plan for aiding manufacturers in getting satisfactorily located in Louisville by assisting them in securing a suitable site and buildings, and through the efforts of the Commercial Club, the city is already enabled to offer exemption from munici- pal taxation for a period of five years. The bank clearings in Louisville in i9!ii amounted to 674,533,256; in 1912, 724,893,243, an increase of more than five million dollars. The assessed value of taxable property in x91l was 190,607,995 and in 1912, 200,791,- 569. Building permits amounting to 7,(A5,o9i were issued during the past year, and the postoffice receipts amounted to 1,124,362.85. All of these figures indicate the sturdy condition of Louisville's growth. The report of the School Superintendent shows that 27,546 pupils were enrolled in the public schools last year. This does not include an estimated 6,ooo attending the parochial and private schools. Two years ago the Louisville schools were placed under the control of a Board of Educa- tion consisting of five members elected from the city at large. During these two years much real progress has Y COURT HOUSE been made. Twenty-nine grade schools have Domestic Science and Manual Training taught to the children of the upper grades. This means that 3,600 before entering High School are having training for hands as well as heads. It is gratifying to note that twenty-three more children per xiooo are in the four upper grades than were there five years ago; also that twenty-four more children per iooo are attending High School than five years ago. The Louisville schools are in the van guard of the new move- ment for better education that is thrilling and vitalizing the Southland. The law and medical departments of the University of Louisville rank as among the best in the country. From the organization of the first medical school in Louisville in i837 to the present time, the standard of requirements LOUISVILLE has been approved by the most rigid critics and the in- structors have been renown for their profound scholarship. Names of students from all parts of the world are an- nually enrolled by our medical colleges. Besides its medi- cal schools, Louisville has two of the largest theological seminaries on the continent. The Presbyterian Theologi- cal Seminary is equalled by but one other in the United States in point of attendance and general success. Its buildings at First Street and Broadway are among the most beautiful in a city of many beautiful structures. The South- ern Baptist Theological Seminary holds a high place in the ranks of seminaries in the entire South, and its students outnumber any similar institution in the United States. Louisville has 235 churches or congregations, and no mat- ter what one's faith may be he is sure to find a place to worship with those of the same creed. Louisville has one of the best equipped and most effici- onion sets are sold in practically every seed store in the country. Here also is the center of the orchard grass seed industry in the United States. Market gardening has been highly developed. Large numbers of stock are fed for market. Dairying, small fruit and berry growing are important and commercial orcharding is increasing. Several distinct soil types lying close together have made possible so diversified an agriculture and rather un- usual thrift and intelligence on the part of the country population has brought about the successful development of these varied lines of farming. Many prosperous smaller farms on the interurbans out of Louisville have banks, com- mercial organizations, warehouses and even buying and sell- ing exchanges dominated by farmers. Louisville is at the hub of a prosperous farming section and yet many latent agricultural possibilities exist. There are many thousands of acres of agricultural lands within an easy reach of Louis- THE PUBUC UBRARY ent library systems to be found in any city. A gift of more than 45oooo from Andrew Carnegie, donations of valuable sites for the main library and seven branches from Louisville and its citizenship represent approximately 250,- ooo, and the collection of books, minerals and art of the Polytechnic Society together with its realty representing a value of more than 300,000 has given this institution assets of more than one million dollars, and enables it to be the most valuable adjunct in the public school system besides serving as a ready source of information for people in every class of business and walk of life. Many of the products of the farms in the Louisville territory are of national repute. Her early potatoes are in demand for the markets in all parts of the country, Jef- ferson County, in which Louisville is located, being the second largest producing county in the Union. Many second crop potatoes are also grown for seed. Louisville ville, in many cases through interurban or railway lines and close to good macadam thoroughfares purchasable at low prices. The favorable climatic conditions and market facilities offer special inducements to trained farmers from less favorable locations and the development of these latent agricultural possiblities promise rapid advancement in the next few years. Since I9o8 Louisville has been the permanent home of the Kentucky State Fair which is now come to be recognized as one of the leading educational factors along agricultural, horticultural and allied lines in the South. The Fair has i8o acres of land and buildings costing 300,0oo. It has a s'lendid half-mile track and one of the largest and most beautiful pavilions of any similar institution in the land. Year by year new buildings are being constructed provid- ing more convenient and commodious facilities for taking care of the constantly increasing number of exhibits. 18 may bring about those things calculated to be the most conducive to the progress of the city of Louisville and the On account of its accessibility to practically every sec- tion of the United States, its superior hotel accommodations and railway facilities, and the fact that Kentucky and hos- pitality have long ago become synonyms, Louisville has firmly established her reputation as a convention city. She hias 24 hotels, 6o restaurants, 250 lodging houses and a convention hall (the Armory) capable of seating i6,ooo people. With such facilities, it is not surprising that during the year i9i2 she entertained 196 conventions. In the Con- vention and Publicity League, the city is fortunate in having an organization that has never failed to prove its ability for providing every convenience for any organization that may hold its conventions in the city. But after all it is not in the manufacturing plants, the skyscrapers, the shops or the city markets that the life of the city lies. It is easy for most of us to look on these great forces as the most vital part of the community for the moment forgetting that back of these is the real heart of the city-the homes, churches and schools. Louisville has many delightful residence sections characterized by beauti- ful architecture and broad well shaded streets and drive- ways, presenting a never to be forgotten picture of homi- ness and the spirit of a happy, contented citizenship.

One of the most phenomenal developments in connec- tion with American business history is the growth of The Mercantile Agency. Beginning in a small way in i84i it has become an im- mense organization having under salary thousands of em- ployes as managers, clerks, and reporters in its one hun- dred and ninety-six offices. An expenditure of some two millions of dollars yearly enables it to keep under constant revision reports on over x,500,000 traders, supplying an immense fund of informa- tion, intelligently gathered, which is constantly at the service of its patrons at any point. The subscriber, in return for the payment of a small I III I LOUISVILLE 19 LOUISVILLE sum of money, has access to a vast store of information gathered from the best authorities, with facilities which have matured in seventy-two years. A complete Reference Book, containing names, loca- tions, trades and commercial ratings of over i,5ooooo traders, is furnished to subscribers. The Louisville office is under the management of Mr. John J. Saunders, who has been associated with it for over 30 years. They occupy splendid quarters in the Board of Trade Building, their main office being the large room formerly used by the Board of Trade as its Exchange Hall. They are fully equipped to take excellent care of their large list of subscribers. The Paducah office was established in September, i889, the Falls City Construction Company of Louisville. This company also built the City Natl. Bank Building of Paducah and the Realty Building, and the Parkman Apartments of Louisville, all of which are illustrated in this book. The Falls City Construction Company has built more court houses than any construction concern in the United States. They have on hand at the present time 15 court houses,- 4 jails and i school house. These contracts are located in iI different states and aggregate over a million dollars. They have a handsome suite of 8 offices in the Realty Building, which includes a modern drafting department equipped with electric blue print machines and all appli- ances. They have in their employ the very best obtainable corps of engineers, designers, estimators and draftsmen, MASONIC WIDOWS AND ORPHANS HOME 24 years ago.

Having an office both in Paducah and Cairo gives this agency unusual opportunities of keeping in touch with trade conditions in the surrounding territory. The office is looked after by Mr. James D. Sullivan, local manager, a native of Paducah, who entered the service of the firm nearly fifteen years ago and has risen to his present position. The first manager was Mr. John J. Saunders, who has uninterruptedly continued his connec- tion with it and is now District Manager, with headquarters at Louisville. FALLS CITY CONSTRUCTION CO. The three court houses shown on page 76, are built by and are in position to handle any kind of a building proposi- tion. They have ample capital, and such banking connec- tions as enable them to take bonds in payment of contracts and they make a practice of assisting the promoters of commercial building propositions to place their lkans and carry part of the bond issues themselves where they secure the contract to do the work. The men in charge of the affairs of this company have had a large and varied ex- perience in all phases of the contracting business and were pioneers in introducing fireproof construction into the South. These people built the Realty Building complete, in 7 months which is the quickest piece of work of its kind ever done in Louisville. They are progressive wide awake and always on the outlook for new business, and on account of the large volume of work they handle they are naturally in a position to buy cheap and to execute their work econom- ically and rapidly. 20 brought on by Legislative Enactment, he accepted a position in the house, and on October 17th, 191i1, was elected Secre- tary of Brown-Forman Company, which position he occu- pied until March, 1913, when he was elected Treasurer.

PHENOM- ENAL GROWTH OF A LOCAL MANUFACTUR- ING PLANT. LOUISVILLE THE TRUE GATEWAY TO THE SOUTH. Until some seven years since, the Washburn-Crojby Co., 21 LOUISVILLE manufacturers of the famous Gold Medal Flour, confined its milling operations to the cities of Minneapolis and Buf- falo,but realizing the fertile fields for the flour business south The original purpose of the Louisville plant was to pro- duce a flour from the soft red wheat of Indiana, Illinois, and Kentucky, in which States is raised red wheat of the very finest quality produced; so that, with a manufacturing plant situated in the midst of this magnificent wheat terri- tory, the Company would be able to meet all the require- ments of the Southern housekeeper. So successful were the efforts of this Company, that the small plant was, within two years, increased to double its capacity, since which time the capacity has grown to 2,000 r CITY HALL of the Ohio River, the company, after a very searching in- vestigation, decided upon making Louisville the distribu- ting point for their Southern trade, not only for the purpose of distributing their Minneapolis product, but also for man- ufacturing flour suited to the requirements of the particular Southern trade. After this investigation, a small mill of 300 barrels daily capacity was purchased, also sufficient adjacent property on which a larger plant could be built provided conditions war- ranted. NORTON INFIRMARY The company was incorporated under the laws of Ken- tucky with a capital of 350,ooooo, ample for the require- ments at that time and for a considerable growth. DAVID BAIRD SON The South's Lngest Millinery House barrels daily. This large output finds its way into every Southern State, as well as into the West Indies and Central American countries. The remarkable growth of the Louisville plant of the Washburn-Crosby Company emphasizes not merely the efficient management of the concern, but also that Louisville is truly the gateway to the South and the most desirable location for manufacturers who wish to supply Southern and Southeastern trade. 22 LOUISVILLE The reasons for its convention activities are two- fold, in the second place, if I may enumerate the second factor first, an intelligent, systematic, organized effort through the medium of the Louisville Convention and Publicity League is primarily responsible and too, this league in the past two years has succeeded in exploiting Louisville's and indeed Kentucky's resources more than have been exploited the resources of any other city of the United States.

Added to its location is the fact that it has abundant hotel and restaurant facilities and its hotels have years ago adopted the very wisest plan of keeping their rates uniform and never raising them because a convention happens to be in session. Hotels of many cities have alienated the public from their cities by taking advantage of large crowds and raising their regular hotel rates. and aside from these halls there are thirty or forty other halls suitable for all sizes and possible kinds of gather- ings and ranging from secret order lodges to the immense auditorium in the First Regiment Armory, the largest unobstructed single auditorium in America. The Armory has been the means innumerable times of securing large conventions which could not have been secured other- wise and through it cannot displace the need of a public auditorium which will sometime be built in Louisville, it is an extremely valuable asset from a convention stand- point. Indeed the Canners' Convention, which recently held an exhibit in the Armory can select only two cities in America because of lack of exhibit halls and Louis- ARMORY, LOUISVILIE. KY.

Newspaper publicity is a valuable adjunct to conven- tion sessions and the Louisville newspapers are notably superior to the newspapers in other cities in reporting correctly and intelligently conventions of all kinds, re- ligious, political, trade and professions, and though this may upon the first impulse, seem an almost valueless asset, it is, in the minds of presidents and executive com- mittees of large associations, an extremely important adjunct to a successful convention. Besides the excellent services of the Louisville newspapers, practically every large trade paper and metropolis newspaper maintains LOUISVILLE 26 LOUISVILLE special correspondents in Louisville and the Southern headquarters of the Associated Press is located in Louis- ville. Another powerful reason why national associations select Louisville as their convention city is found in the numerous side trips of interest which can be taken out RICHARD J. STEFFENS Louisville', Most Noted Portrait Artist, Who Photographed the Members of Pot "D." Which Appears in This Edition of Louisville to the marvelous Mammoth Cave and the wonderfully beautiful Blue Grass region of Kentucky with its historical associations, to Lincoln Memorial Farm; besides the many places of unusual interest found in or near Louisville, including the Louisville and Port- land canal, one of the greatest engineering feats of its kind in America, old home wherein lived Louis Phillipe, before he became King of France, the old courting grounds of President Jefferson Davis, associations which are indicated by the Zachary Taylor monument, Thomas Jefferson monument, Henry Clay statue, George D. Pren- tice statue, Confederate monument, Daniel Boone statue, to which might be added Louisville's three notable mu- seums, her unexcelled park system, including one of the most beautiful natural scenes in the world and her numer- ous public institutions, some of them unique in character. One of the appealing arguments for trade conventions to select Louisville is the fact that it is the largest tobacco market in the world, the world's leading whisky center from the standpoint of distilleries and wholesale liquor dealers, leading wholesale grocery and wholesale drug distributing point, the world's largest producers of sole leather, jeans, corduroys, onions and potatoes, one of the largest poultry and egg markets in America, has the largest bath tub factory in the world, largest ax handle factory in the world, largest exclusive organ factory in the world, the largest sewer pipe plant in the South, one of the largest chair factories in America, one of the largest and probably the largest, plow factory in the world, the second largest wholesale hardware plant in LINCOLN TRUSI BUILIANU the world, the largest box factory in the world, is the leading mule market, the leading flour mill market, the largest exclusive wagon factory in the world, largest cement factory in the United States, and the packing house industry represents business of 7,000,000 annually. Then, the very name of Kentucky, the romance that 27 LOUISVILLE is associated with it and the hospitality that the name is supposed to represent, carries no little influence. The employees of the Louisville Convention and Publicity League have utilized these natural assets to their fullest Louisville as its convention city already assures itself of more than ordinary success in the attendance of delegates and in the smoothness with which the convention itself is run.

Few cities are better equipped with public libraries than Louisville. The magnificent stone building located NEW BROADWAY SCHOOL be furnished, so that Louisville has come to earn a repu- tation not only for entertaining larger numbers of con- ventions than other cities but contributing to make each of these conventions the best ever held in the history of their respective associations. An association which selects at Fourth and York streets, in part a gift of Andrew Carnegie, contains one of the finest libraries in this coun- try, and including the sub-libraries, represents an ex- penditure of over 1,000,000. An excellent feature of the system in this city is the l3cation of the seven branch 28 , " II'I,I e :'- 11 I A library, and many private libraries have been merged in, forming the present institution.

Central Park is the boast of New York, Lincoln Park of Chicago, Fairmount Park swells with pride any citi- duce an impression of beauty, for the city found her parks practically made to order, waiting only to be com- pleted by the addition of roads and walks and play- grounds, and offering to her citizens that which is of RESIDENCE OF MR. S. THURSTON BALLARD zen of Philadelphia, yet in not too boasting a spirit Louis- ville can point with pride to not one but four city parks which rival in beauty any of these. Our parks in their natural beauty have won the admiration of landscape gardeners from every nation, and they are one in pro- inestimable value-clean, invigorating air and an oppor- tunity easily to get away from brick walls and granite streets and feel the yielding turf below and see the azure sky above. A distinct feature of Louisville's park arrangement RESIDENCE OF MR. CHARLES T. BALLARD nouncing ours the most glorious parks in the world. It has not been found necessary in Louisville, as in many other cities, to resort to artificial methods in order to pro- lies in the fact that every one of the embryonic Gardens of Eden is extremely accessible to the public at large, through an excellent line of operation of street railways 30 Central Park has tennis courts and playgrounds for children. Take Fourth avenue cars going south. Iroquois or Jacob Park, at end of Grand boulevard, contains 67 Oacres and has five miles of macadamized roadway. There are approximately 15,000 native forest trees in this park and the planted trees and shrubs num- ber upward of 200,000. Take Fourth avenue car going south, via Third or Seventh streets. Shawnee or Western Park, located on the banks of which practically puts Cherokee, Shawnee, Iroquois, Cen- tral and other parks at the citizen's door. In other cities there are undeniably beautiful tracts, but these are often found to be peculiarly situated for the benefit of the motorist, who spins in his big touring car from his home to the park boulevards and gives never a thought to other individuals, not so lucky as he, who are com- pelled to utilize "shanks' mere" in getting to the parks on account of inadequate car service. The location of public parks in numerous cities of RESIDENCE OF MR. OUS W. PICKRELL the United States is either so remote from the heart of the town or else is so unfrequented that electric railway transportation to the garden spots is either tedious and complicated by transfers or is altogether a negligible quantity. In respect to quick transportation to beautiful scenery, where the great outdoors may be enjoyed to the fullest, Louisvillians may well congratulate themselves.

Louisville is the largest wholesale market of the South, and is showing increased sales this season in all lines, making our position secure as a leading market of this great and rapidly growing section of the country. Since the olden days when Shippingport was a busy part of the present Louisville, when all freight coming down the Ohio had to be transferred here for the lower river trade, this city has maintained its leading position as the first wholesale market of the South. The same good reasons for our prestige as a market are ours today, and the trade of the South and South-Central States appre- ciate our advantages as to freight rates, central location. groceries, plumbers' supplies, stoves, farming implements, and many other lines. In any one of these it leads the South, and in some the Southeast and Southwest. To give an idea of our trading in leading lines. our sales of dry goods alone is conservatively estimated at 12,000,000 annually, two houses of this market selling over 8,000,000 of this amount. Hardware is another large line of this market. There are eight large wholesale establishments, one of which is the second largest in the United States, and hardware and heavy iron sales foot up to more than 2i,000,000 annually. Water transpor- tation gives Louisville an advantage over any other Southern market in the sale of heavy merchandise, for our transportation charges are lower. RESIDENCE OF B. J. JAN5INU and the facilities of our merchants to meet the demands of the trade with quick service, and the right goods sold at the lowest market price. In this day of keenest competition it is necessary to seek the best market, in price as well as in assortment of goods. It is essential to seek the largest market with the shortest haul on the merchandise to offer your cus- tomer. It is just this that has made Louisville the prime factor in the success of so many merchants. They can come here, get a selection to their liking, shop among many large houses, and on going home feel sure of not doing any better or even so well in any other market. Not only does Louisville job everything to be had, but we manufacture much of the merchandise sold here; it is in large part a first-hand transaction. As a market Louisville occupies a commanding position; it is famous for its great lines of dry goods, clothing, shoes, cotton fabrics, woolen goods, hardware, paints, cement, tobacco, The Merchants' and and Manufacturers' Association is a local organization composed of the wholesale merchants and manufacturers of the Louisville market. It has done a great work in bringing closer together the three prin- cipal elements in trade, the manufacturer, wholesaler and retailer, and it has done so to the advantage of all. The semi-annual merchants' banquets of this associa- tion have become famous. In the fall and spring sea- sons the Louisville merchants send their invitations broadcast throughout the South-Central States. With this invitation not alone goes the request to come "wine and dine" with our merchants, but a tender of railway fares is made, and every accommodation is offered to make a trip here without cost. And these merchants know that they can still buy on the same basis as of other mar- kets which do not show such appreciation of their patron- age. Three hundred thousand invitations were sent out to merchants by this association last year. 32 1,0IL' VS\ I1, 1, 'jitk our unexcelled art and mechanical facilifies for fine Commercial Illustrating and Engraving we get into full symnpay with the commercial point of view and give ygur wares that faithftl -porrayal wvhichaf once compels aftention and sirengihensyotir arguiment , Our Color Process plate deparfnien affords evry ad- vantage possessed by any mR and engraving esfablishment inAmerica TINSLEY-MAYER ENGRAVING CO Loutsville, Kentucky LOUISVILLE The Package Car Service is a convenience to shippers inaugurated by the Merchants' and Manufacturers' Asso- ciation. This service insures the trade a shipment of goods in broken car lots at about the same time con- sumed in a shipment by express, but at freight rates. This is a daily service, and practically all points in Ken- tucky, Tennessee and Indiana can be reached in twenty- four hours. This association also maintains a freight bureau for the accommodation of merchants. wholesale or retail. It has at its head a thoroughly practical railroad man, and it is his business to answer any question on freight matters that may perplex the shipper. This has proven a much appreciated part of the association's work, and is only another indication of the thoughtfulness of the Lou- isville trade in looking after the interests of its custom- ers. It goes to show that in trade as well as in social matters Kentucky hospitality crops out to the advan- tage of the stranger quite as much as to the one from whom he buys. LOUISVILLE A RELIGIOUS CENTER In Louisville every nation finds a place to worship. Nearly every creed has a congregation or church, and nearly all are in a healthy state. In the trio of Young Mens Christian Associations the non-church member may enjoy a Christian atmosphere. That organization, RESIDENCE OF MR. CHARLES W. MILLICAN RESIDENCE OF MR. M. E. TAYLOR the strongest in the South, has a railroad branch and a colored branch, and is now build- ing a magnificent new home costing 350,000. The foreign population-Germans, Jewish and others-all have their churches. The Ger- man Methodists have about 1,000 members here, while the big evangelical churches, with a total of nearly 6,000 members, together with the Lutheran churches, offer satisfactory places of worship for the entire German population. Every phase of udaism, from the strict ortho- dox to the most liberal of the new or reformed creeds, are represented. Aside from the fact that Louisville has a full share of churches, it is the home of two of the largest theological seminaries of the con- tinent. The Presbyterian Theological Semi- nary is equaled by but one other in the United States in point of attendance and general suc- cess. Its buildings at First street and Broad- way are the most beautiful in a city of many beautiful structures. The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary holds the highest place in the seminary class of the entire South, and its students outnumber any similar institution in the United States. By reason of Louisville's high place in the religious world, it is the meeting center for Christian people from over the whole country. Conventions, conferences and religious gather- ings of magnitude are held here annually. 33 LOUISVILLE NEW CITY HOSPITAL PLANT OF AMERICAN MACHINE COMPANY THE PARK VIEW APARTMENTS Cherokee and Fiozer Avenue- L-uinvile.

I-I 1.I 1I I i i I i i i I I I I i I i I LOUISVILLE 53 Electric development in Louisville in the last half-decade has attracted nation wide attention. Few cities are better lighted and certainly no city approaching the size of Louisville presents a business district so brilliant. A large area in the heart of the city revels in a wealth of electric signs and attractive window illuminations. Along with these spectacular demonstrations-so appealing to the eye-has been the extension of electric power service. Chimneyless factories are con- stantly growing in number and the electric motor is supplanting the old steam power with the current produced by the central station. KENTUCKY ELECTRIC COMPANY Admittedly a potent factor in this electrical development is the Kentucky Electric Company. The transformation of Louisville from a city of comparative darkness to a metropolis of beauty and brightness began with the inauguration of the service of the Kentucky Electric Company a little over four years ago. Spot after spot of inky darkness has given way to bright store fronts and artistic signs. Although in its infancy, "KY-EL-CO'-strictly a home institution, owned and operated almost entirely by Louisville citizens-has made giant strides in its physical development, with the idea ever foremost in the mind of its management that the company should keep constantly ahead of the increasing demands made on it by the public. Within the last year the company has completed a magnificent new generating station, occupying an entire city block on the river front. An interesting feature of the new equipment is a system of intake and discharge tunnels extending far into the chan- nel of the Ohio river and providing the new station with an inexhaustible supply of water for condensation purposes. This engineering feat has drawn the attention of electrical and mechanical experts throughout the country. Considerably more than half a million dollars is said to have been spent in these improvements. Not the least noteworthy in the list of improvements made by the company is the handsome "Electric Building" erected on Fourth Street south of Chstnut and dedicated in October, 1912. The structure is one of the most unique buildings on Louisville's principal retail thoroughfare and is particularly beautiful under its night illumination. Here are located the executive and commercial offices of the company. More than half of the spacious ground floor is devoted to display rooms in which a permanent electrical exposition is conducted. Every conceivable electrical appliance is on display and visitors to the city are frequently conducted to the Exposition as one of the genuine show plates of Louisville.

This limestone soil gives the wheat those bone, sinew and muscle-giving qualities which have made Kentucky horses so famous. These vital life-giving qualities are just as good for man as for horses, and if you want your children to have health, strength and nerve force, give them Ballard's Flour. Paying a high price for the best wheat in- sures a regular, uniform flour that is Always Reliable. 2 Ballard Mills Have the 2 . Finest Machinery Everv new invention in the milling art is tried, and if an improvement we adopt it. Thus the entire inventive genius of mankind is brought here to serve you. Our mill is a model of efficiencv. Machines do the work-the product is never touched by human hands from the time the wheat leaves the farmers' wagons until the sack of flour is sewed up. Thus it is perfectly Clean and Sanitary. 2 Ballard Mills Employ the Best Men As we are on the co-operative or profit- sharing plan, every man and woman is a partner, and, therefore, puts forth his or her best efforts to make Ballard's Obelisk Flour the finest in the land. Working only eight hours a day, they are not tired out by long hours, but are always fresh and snappy, so every machine is kept working right, and is watched as a devoted mother cares for her children. The floors, walls, ceilings, and all things about the mill are kept clean and sanitary. Visitors say it is the Cleanest mill they ever saw. "Cleanliness is Next to Godliness." A Ballard's Obelisk is the Em Double Cream Skimmed Off Only a small part of all the flour is Obelisk. It is the Best-as it were, the cream of all the flours skimmed off, and, therefore, Rich, Pure and Clean. Samples of this flour are taken out by the millers every hour, night and day. A young woman, especially trained, inspects those samples. Only one grade of Obelisk Flour, and that is the best-everywvhere and all the time. 4 Good Reasons- That's Enough The mill back of the flour with over thirty years' reputation for honesty and fair dealing insures you good treatment.

The building encloses three sides of this court, which has ample walks and grass plots; there are 24 apartments, 12 of 5 rooms, and 12 of 6 rooms. The entrances are all from the court yard. THE THEIRMAN APARTMENTS, LOUISVILLE The stairways, both front and rear, are fireproof, the front stairs being of marble and are entirely separated from the apartments by brick walls, and each apartment is entirely surrounded by brick walls, making the building consist of eight separate units, entirely surrounded by brick walls; this, together with the first story construction being entirely fireproof, reduces the fire risk to almost nothing. All of the apartments are residential in character, each having a reception hall. living room, and dining room in suite. The chambers and bath rooms are located on a private hall. The kitchen, butler's pantry, kitchen entrance and pantry communicate with the rear stairways, with ample refrigerators, gas stoves, and china cases.

The provision for laundries and storage rooms in the basement is up to date in every point. The location and general style of the building makes it an ideal residence within easy walking dis- tance and the fact that every apartment is occupied, proves its desirability.

LOUISVILLE 77 LOUISVILLE THE BROWN-FORMAN DISTILLERY, REGISTERED DISTILLERY The Brown-Forman Distillery is located about sixty miles (64)) miles from Louisville, at St. 'Mary, Kentucky. on the Knoxville branch of the Louisville and Nashville Railway. This distillery was established by Mr. B. F. Mattingly on a large farm owned by himself. MIr. Matt- ingly and Mr. Geo. G. Brown, president of Brown-Forman Co., had been friends for many years, and several years since Brown-Formnan Company bought the distillery and about one hundred acres of land surrounding it. Mr. Matt- ingly was a farmer and distiller from his youth, and is now an octogenarian. Mr. Brown, though Mr. Mattingly's junior by at least fifteen years, has probably been longer in the whisky business continuously in Louisville than any other member of that trade. The Brown-Forman is distinctively a country distillery and the product is readily distinguished by connoisseurs from the product of some large distilleries run more with ST. MARY, KY. the purpose of a large yield than fine quality. The policy of Brown-Forman Company is to allow their product to remain in bond several years before putting it actively on the market. Among their leading brands are Old Forester, which has been on the market since 1874, and is by many regarded in the same light to whiskies generally that champagne is to wine. The Old Forester has always been a blend of nothing but ripe old Kentucky whiskies, and contrary to frequent customs in establishing brands, it is finer and older today than when first introduced on the market. Another of their leading brands is Old Tucker, which is shipped direct from the distillery either in barrels or bottled in bond. The main office of the Brown-Forman Distillery Com- pany is No. 117 W. Main Street, Louisville, Ky. ;8 LOUISVILLE Z1 _ a SEAJ,\ IS 4 Its EleganmtFao is solely due to O n Fineness . and D:-f-. pC - Developed by Ag -: ..h.; y "IH Ae g \\; 4, - ' 79 LOUISVILLE A0 1I _ __ 80 LOUISVILLE T FIE Corporation of R. E. WATHEN COMPANY is composed of three brothers, R. E. Wathen, J. B. i Wathen, Jr., and 0. H. Wathen. Their paternal ancestors, for four generations back, have been continuously in the distilling business in this State, having originally started the manufacture of whisky in Marion County, Kentucky, in 1788. This is a record they are proud of. The present generation, like their ancestors, are priding themselves on the quality of their whiskies and are endeavoring to turn out the best possible article, sparing nothing in the way of efforts or money to put them in the foremost ranks. They are independent of the Trust and sell exclusively to the jobbing trade, R.'E. WATHEN COMPANY, LOUISVILLE, KY. and of the distillers doing business in this way, they have the largest plant in the State. The firm are making different grades of both Bourbon and Rye whisky. While their principal business is making goods under private brands for the large jobbers, also bottling in bond these whiskies under their label. Their sales are confined exclusively to this class of the jobbing trade. They sell no saloon or retail trade what- soever. Their plant is located on the Illinois Central Railroad about one mile south of the City Limits of Louis- ville, Kentucky. They have a producing capacity of six thousand barrels per month; there are nowv stored in their bonded warehouses at the distillery about 115,000 barrels of whisky. These warehouses are all heated with the most up-to-date ventilating system, which insures uniform temperature in all portions of the warehouses at all seasons of the vear. 81 S2 LOUTS VILLE S ME OF GREENBRIER HO KENTUCKY NELSON COUNTY, KY. : "There is None Better"': U...R DITILLNG O. c LOUISVILLEE...

The character and stamina of any city can be ac- curately gauged by its respect for the creator of all things. The Churches of Paducah are held in greater pride than her commercial institutions. The amount spent for new church buildings in recent years has en- abled her churches to more than keep pace with other kinds of growth. All leading Protestant, Catholic and Hebrew denominations are represented without any one sect predominating. A new Country Club has been organized which will replace the old Golf Club, the links having been laid out, and a thoroughly modern Club House will soon be completed. Paducah is a live, wide-awvake city, and the citizens are rapidly awakening to the realization that their city has within itself all the elements that are necessarily comprised in a great metropolis, and they are putting those elements to work to force and wveld the constitU- ents into a concrete mass. To tell the whole story of Paducah's advance to her present position of importance in the affairs of the great CITY HALL Stone Webster street car service and many other items which will show for themselves when you make your visit to prove the claims made for Paducah. Paducah's Public Schools are the pride of the city. \\e have eleven school buldings, a corps of ninety teachers, forty-three hundred children enrolled in the public schools and pay good salaries. Paducah has two high schools with forty-four graduates in 1912' in these two schools, sixteen boys and twventy-eight girls. Paducah's schools take rank with the best schools in Kentucky and in other states. Her high school graduates are ad- mitted to such universities as Chicago, Vanderbilt, Le- land Stanford, University of Illinois, and all the state institutions, upon their diplomas, without examination. Mianual Training and Domestic Science were installed (luring the year, 1912. We have two private schools and one Business College. Paducah's Post Office receipts have increased from Sixty-three Thousand in 1907 to 103,000 in 1912, show- ing a steady, healthy growth of our commercial interests. WAe have fifty-one miles of graveled streets in the city. POST OFFICE State of Kentucky and of the South, would take many pages of narrative which wvould be interesting reading. Paducah figures more prominently in the plans of the big railroad systems of this country at present than any city in the United States, being on the line of the direct route between the Great Lakes and the Panama canal. Several different lines, in an effort to get a direct line from the Great Lakes to the Gulf for traffic via the Panama canal, are building a mammoth double track bridge across the Ohio river just below the city, which vored by nature as an ideal site for manufacturing inter- ests, agricultural pursuits and a distributing gateway for the great South and Southwest. We are located between the great coal fields of southern Illinois and west Kentucky, enjoying a very cheap rate on both steam and domestic coal by both river and rail. We are only a few miles from vast deposits of ball and sagger clay, BROADWAY NORTH FROM SIXTH STREET ELKS CLUB will be completed the coming season, and when com- pleted will serve to bring four additional roads from the Fouth, thus giving us shipping facilities equal or superior to any city on the Ohio river. Now, after this, the Ohio, with the Mississippi only a few miles below with deep water to New Orleans and deep water to Pittsburgh and with the Tennessee and Cumberland emptying into the Ohio at this point, giving us in all 4,000 miles of navigable water, you will easily see why Paducah will at some time in the very near flurspar, zinc and iron ore. We are also located in the heart of the great timber belt districts. Account of river competition, Paducah enjoys freight rates on both raw and manufactured articles that are superior to almost any city in the Southern or Central States. Paducah's population enjoys splendid water for domes- tic consumption, the supply coming from the Ohio river through mechanical filtration plant that has the stamp of approval of the United States government. The city operates its own electric light plant, the streets being COUNTRY CLUB future, become the greatest city in the Ohio valley. Paducah has more than one hundred and fifty varied factories manufacturing various products from which practically all are receiving their raw material within a very few miles of this city, our payroll amounting to more than 3,000,000 per annum.

Paducah has a real live Board of Trade that is offer- namely, Devil's Island Gin, a medicated Gin of great merit. Special attention is called to their ad. in this book. Sol Dreyfuss, the senior member of the firm, has been a member of Post A, T. P. A., for more than twenty years and can always be depended upon to help the cause wherever he can. Xlr. Dreyfuss, in addition to taking a live interest in matters pertaining to the T. P. A., also takes an active interest in all matters pertaining to civic pride, to the welfare and advancement of Paducah. For several years. he was President of Temple Israel, Vice-President for the Commercial Club, Trustee of the Elks Lodge, member of the Grand Lodge of the Order of B'nai B'rith, is chairman of the executive board of the local sanitorium for the prevention and cure of tubercu- losis, besides several charitable and other organizations, of which he is an active member. Herman L. Weil, his late and lamented partner, was a zealous worker in the ranks of the T. P. A. and none stood higher in the esteem and admiration of the members than Mr. Weil. No hour was too early or too late, no work too tedious or laborious, for him to advance the welfare of the T. P.

In the early spring, the Kentucky Southwestern will begin the con- struction of 210 miles of electric lines out of Paducah at a cost of three and one-half million dollars, and with the completion of the new bridge and building of new ter- minals of this city for the different railroads, it is the general opinion that Paducah should have 7T,000 people within ten years.

Perhaps it is not generally known that the name of the city was conferred upon it by the early set- tlers in honor of the victory won by American arms at the little battle of Lexington, in Middlesex County, 'Mas- sachusetts, which was the spark that ignited the blaze of the Revolution, and won for the United States their independence. "Let us call our town 'Lexington,'" said Colonel Patterson, in the ardor of his first enthusiasm when a stage coach made the trip to Lexington from Cincinnati in a day." Yet the stage coach marked as great an advance in its time as did the railway, later on. It was among the first of the 'spring wagons' prophe- sied by old Peter Saulsbury, and for its better accommo- dation were built those pikes for which Kentucky is famous. If the old hunter could come back for a while, what would he think of the iron-horse eating up the long miles between North and South, the beautiful cities, the thriving villages, the buffaloes' grazing ground sown to corn, wheat, hemp and tobacco; the vineyards, the FAYETTE COUNTY COURT HOUSE over the victory of the 'Minute-men whom Paul Revere had so heroically summoned to their posts, and the other settlers unanimously acclaimed it, and adopted it, with a great gusto chorus of "Yes, let it be 'Lexington.' " When Peter Saulsbury first took the Long Trail through the open glades of Kentucky, he said to his companion, old Ephraim Norris, scout and Indian fighter by profession: " Eph., we shan't live to see it, I reckon, but our gran'children 'II be ridin' up 'n' down these here valleys in spring wagons, and the nighest Injun'll be in hell." Before the old hunters died and went each to his ap- pointed place, as we all must, they spent some years in exploring the territory south of the Ohio river. "It is a far cry," remarks the writer of a recent article on "The Blue Grass," "from these days of the Queen Crescent Vestibule Limited back to the pioneer times orchards, the busy factories; and on the rivers, where he used to paddle his canoe, the veritable floating palaces Lexington has frequently been called "The Athens of America," because of its unusual educational facilities, and it is patent that the Arts and Sciences have not been overlooked in favor of physical advancement. The first college west of the Alleghenies was built at Danville in 1780. It was known as Transylvania University, and in 1788 was removed to Lexington. Today, we find this city equipped with six public schools for white children, three for colored, and over a score of universities, col- leges, and private schools. The new ornamental system of street lighting, and the new paving in all the latest types, as best adapted to the various streets, according to grades and kind of traffic thereon, will prove of greatest usefulness to the retailers, as well as of the utmost convenience and com- and the hospitality extended to them by its genial presi- (lent, Mr. John Gund. At Lexington are located the railroad shops of the fort to the public at large. Both of these improvements were agitated by the Commercial Club, and are being carried through under their auspices. In short, the club has aided largely in making Lexington an example of militant industrialism, beside which all precedents of rapid growth along commercial lines must inevitably fail. It is a city which has deserved success, and, now that it has won success, must ever, by sheer force of natural causes, continue to command success. Lexington's tobacco industries are among her great- est assets, competing strongly with her vast stock farm enterprises. Tobacco last year averaged 10Y2 cents per pound, which showed an increase of 33Y3 per cent over the prices of old days. The local market has grown from one lone warehouse, until today there are ten sales warehouses. One of them is the property of the Burley Tobacco Society, and is the largest loose-leaf tobacco warehouse in the world, being 380 feet wide, 680 feet long, and two stories high. In four years' time the to- bacco market has increased from an almost negligible position to the largest loose-leaf market in existence. Just now there have been completed twvo new additional re-drying and re-handling plants. In the percentage of increase in bank clearings last year, Lexington showed second in the United States.

The population now is 40,000, including between 3,000 and 3,500 students in the universities and private schools. Lexington has several distilleries, manufacturing whisky which is shipped into almost every State in the Union, and a brewery selling its product in nine States. We wish to call special attention to the Lexington Brewery, as every T. P. A. who visited Lexington during the National Convention, held in Louisville, June, 1899, will ever remember their trip to the Lexington Brewery Lexington Eastern Railway Company, the division repair shops of the Chesapeak Ohio Railway Company, and the division terminal yards and shops of the Louis- ville Nashville and Southern Railways. Lexington gets her water supply from artificial lakes, the Avater-shed covering some fifteen hundred acres. The supply is adequate and the water pure and wholesome. Several of the manufacturing concerns get their supply from driven wells at very moderate cost. Lexington is one of the oldest cities of the country. It has many historical associations, and has been the home of many great men. Lexington is headquarters for fifty of the greatest horse breeding farms in the world. The plant of James B. Haggin alone comprises eight thousand acres of land. Lexington has cheap fuel. Kentucky has 16,100 square miles of workable coal area, most of it practically utn- touched, and Lexington is the gateway city to these vast resources. Lexington is the county seat of Fayette county, which has more than 350 miles of macadamized roads within its boundaries. The Blue Grass region is the favorite summer home for automobile tourists.

It is midwav between Louisville and Memphis and its altitude is the highest between these two points. It is the county seat of Graves county, one of the largest counties in Kentucky, with a population of more than forty thousand, and containing 54() square miles. Its climate is ideal and coupled with the health giving water, furnished by the city water supply from of skilled workmen and mechanics. Near this city is located an inexhaustible supply o)f the finest ball an(l sagger clays to be found in the United States; in fact, no beds of POST OFFICE clay have vet been discovered in this country that will compare with these clays for the fine arts. There is a great deal of development in these clay indllustries going on and available fields stand ready to be developed, and can be had at a reasonable figure. This city has two modern brick and tile plants, two local and long dis- tance telephone systems, with rural lines touching every portion of this large county; the county has twelve hun- dred miles of good roads, and gravel pikes reaching out from the city to the county line on all sides.

These two last men- tioned industries furnish employment to large numbers ONE OF THE NEW HIGH SCHOOLS All classes of mercantile business, both retail and wholesale are well supplied, and its trade radius is so large that it has been well designated "The Best Retail MAYFIELD Town in Kentuckv"; five banks and a prosperous building and loan association furnish ample capital for the trans- action of the business. Educationally, its advantages cannot be excelled, it having three graded schools and one high school in shops. Most notable among its varied interests are the two large clothing factories, namely, the Merit Manu- facturing Company, and the Mayfield Woolen Mills, both of whose goods an(l trade marks are already too well tirown for discussion.

NOTHING adds more naturally to the charms and attractions of a city than a first-class hostelry, and the City of Hopkinsville is fortunate in having in its immediate business center one of the best hotels in the State, which is no other than The Latham, having been recently purchased by Messrs. A. D. Noe Son, who have remodeled and refurnished it throughout, making it up-to-date in every respect. The office lobby on the first floor is elegantly furnished with large, massive leather upholstered easy chairs and brilliantly lighted with electricity, while the floor is of a most handsome design of mosaic. WVell lighted writing desks are also on this floor, a door in the rear leads into the new dining room, which for beauty has no equal. Messrs. Noe Son, the proprietors, have spared neither time or expense to accomplish this end, which speaks for itself. The cuisine is under the supervision of an experience culinary artist and the tables are supplied with the best the market affords at all times, while the service is strictly first-class. Every room has been refurnished with the best of beds and supplied with hot and cold running water, electric light and steam heat, a great many have private baths in connection.
