It is this sort of country life that is appealing to the man of means and which is sending scores of nature worshippers to the country every year. Plenty of Local Color. In all the ages we read of country villas, country estates. The Romans had them before the Christian Era. Nero, satiated with his voluptuous city pleasures, tired of the intrigues of his court and finally to save his miserable life, hastened to his country villa. Then again, "In days of old when Knights were bold," we find that everyone who amounted to anything had his country estate, the crowning glory of which was the grand, rock-bound castle. It was not until the "quality" became land hungry, and they began discovering new countries, that the old traditions in this respect were given a jolt and centuries of progress were overturned. With the discovery of America the tide turned the other way. Nobles forgot about their country places and builded cities. The aristocracy of all nations exerted itself in one field only, that of discovering new countries. After awhile things righted themselves somewhat and in England the country estates were re-estab- lished. In America the plantations of the South grew and thrived. Then came the Civil War, and once again all country estate theories were upset. The last ten years has seen the revival of the country idea and now, from Maine to California and frorn the most northern0 boundaries of the United States to its southernmost point, the cry is, Where the Gleaming Pike Passes Between Grand Old Trees. - Back to the Earth." The boy, country raised and country bred, toils in the city with just one object in view, that of getting back to the farm. The city bred man, no less keen for the final result, makes his fortune and ostentatiously buys up a tract of land whereon he proceeds to live in more comfortable circumstances, in more regal style than did Nero of old, when, to the accompanying roar of the burning of Rome, and with his fiddle strapped to his back, he scurried to his country villa on the banks of the Tiber. Start of the Famous Phoenix Hotel Stakes on the Lexington Running Track. Beyond the shadow of a doubt the country place of today is more beautiful, more useful, than was the country estate of antiquity. As a direct result of what the gentleman farmer is doing today, we have finer horses, better dogs, better sheep, better cattle, more perfect flowers, than we had centuries ago. The one idea that has pervaded everything has been the perfecding of type. Having illustrated country places in every section of the country, it is but natural that I should draw comparisons. The estates of the North, as a whole, are better kept, more trim, more formal, than are the country places of Southern people. Lawns are cut once or twice a week, walks are kept scrupulously clean, there is a place for everything, and everything ______ is in its place. In fact, much of the wholesome country atmosphere is sacrificed in this desire to measure everything by a foot rule. The writer has in mind one place in the North where, by utilizing every foot of space, by looking after the little details, it has become possible for the owner to keep year in and year out I 10 head of cattle on 110 acres of ground. Two years ago this man cleared 7,000 above all expenses. If I am to have the preference, however, give me the Southern country place.

The Negro Cabin Was at One Time a Very Necessary Feature of Every Estate. of a century, the0 post-and-rail fence,0 0 the old negro cabin at the back of the ; house, the gem of architecture known as the spring house, and the delightful disorder as to the arrangement of buildings and paddocks, all appeal to the imagination and draw one to the South as the magnet draws the needle. It is a wholesome, natural atmosphere, and if the newer Northern country place is to become permanent, if it is to succeed as a popular and useful fixture, it must take pattern after the South, where the country place is as old as the country, and where, indeed, it is ideal. THOMAS A. KNIGHT Mt. Horeb Church-Hisoric and Picturesque. A Mondaymorning Scene. ,Storv of the Bluie Grass Region. By Naney Lewis G(reene. OWHERE in Amerca is the life of the country gentleman more truly charac- teristic and genuine than in the Blue Grass region of Kentucky, and for this reason a comprehensive work, showing the attractions of this famous secdion must be somewhat of national interest and importance. Down By the Branch. American country life is a vigorous young national plant, with its roots deeply embedded in European soil. In no stronger characteristic does the New World show her kinship to the Old than in a steadily developing taste for life in the open; for establishing vast country estates and hunting preserves, where an inborn derire to cultivbte the soil, breed fine stock, or pass the hunting season in the heart of the country, may be gratified. Almost every city of importance in the United States, at the present time, has its surrounding touge ixulnttvy estates, and fortunes have been expended in their improvement and adornment. Our American millionaires have all taken a turn at playing the country gentleman; sometimes it is but the fad of an hour, taken up and abandoned as fancy may dictate. More often, however, in seeking a wholesome release from financial cares in rural pursuits, hidden chords in human nature are touched, the existence of which was scarce suspected, yet, which, when once called into being nevermore quite die out, and thus we have the truest type of the American country gentleman; one who conducts his country estate as an integral part of his life. In dealing wit CutyEstates of the Blue Grass," in particular, one takes largely The Century-Old Mill at South Elkhom. .intoconsideration this latter type, for a maoity of Athe country gentlemn in this section have.nvrbe anythinig Ielsei for generations. Some of the best American writers and genealogists have pointed out the fad that for direct, unadulterated lineage, the people of Kentucky and Virginia may present the strongest claim to possession. Throughout many changing conditions they have preserved the bluest blood intact. Customs and codes of caste are still observed among them which came into use with Cavalier ancestors, and it is no uncommon thing to find, even in old and dilapidated homesteads of this section, genuine crests and coats-of-arms identical On the Johnson Pike, Near Lexington. with the proudest peerage of England, Scotland, France or Holland. Many of the Kentucky country places were once slave plantations and have never been sold by the families who first fixed their boundaries. The homesteads present, w ien untouchec; by the hand of Time, a distind style of architecture peculiar to the South. Broad, spacious, comfortable and substantial, the buildings are generally of brick or stone, set squarely upon solid foundations and softened, beautified and completed by long pillared galleries that oftte extend the whole length of the house, back and front, with stone steps leading up from gravel driveways. Such is the average country gentleman of Kentucky and his environment. Yet, there is another type which must be taken largely into consideration, for over the whole fabric of past conditions has been thrown the new, vitalizing, beautifying influence of imported thought and wealth. There can be no doubt that the capital, progress and brain of the North has served to make this section of the State richer, broader and more important to the world at large than it has ever been in the whole history of the past; that the white palaces of the New York millionaires, which have 'risen like magical conceptions upon the On the Bryan Station Pike, Near Lexington, green hillsides or level pastures of the Blue Grass country add a charm to the landscape and a moulding influence to all modern enterprise. An example has been set upon these model country places which will go on bearing fruit until better conditions are realized, even upon the most modest of farm lands, for already have the perfectly consnructed roads on the great estates led to the building and improving of more excellent public and private driveways in a locality which has ever been famed for its Little Martha One ol the Features at -Tynehrae" good roads. Spotikes of the Wheel. At the present time the City of Lexington represents the hub in a vast wheel, whose glittering spokes are level, white turnpikes, the equal of which, in point of construction and picturesque beauty, cannot be found in the whole world. It is this feature of the section that the artist has so faithfully endeavored to set forth with his camera, giving a fair idea of the scenic beauty and interest to be enjoyed by a drive over these Kentucky turnpikes. Beside two of them has been laid the tracks of the interurban railway, prophesying of future development and progress. Over the Maysville and Georgetown roads electric railway connection has been made with interior towns, and there are not two more piduresque or important highways in the whole country. A drive out the Maysville road brings a visitor to the gates of many noted stock farms, among which stands the white palace at "Green Hills," and -______ -__-___________ the superb buildings at Elmendorf, where many noted horses are quartered. To the east lies the Bryan Station road, whos chief object of interest, in spite of its array of valuable stock farms, is historic; for a short drive brings one to the famous Second Heat of the (1904) Futurity, at Lexington. Bryan Station Spring, which figured so conspicuously in pioneer days by supplying water to the inmates of a fort built by early settlers to protect a little colony of white people from the Indians. The spot is a hallowed place to Kentuckians, for it stands as a monument to the heroism of a few brave women, who emerged from the fort under cover of Indian guns and marched down the hillside to obtain the water for which a weakly defended fort was perishing. If they had sent out the few men that the enclosure protected, or rather who Vlonument at Bryan Station Spring, Built by Women to Women. protected the enclosure, the lurking foe would have easily overpowered them, and destroyed the women and children at their leisure; but, if the fort could be held for a few days, until expeced reinforcements arrived, all might be well. Water lay outside the stockade, and that water was essential. So, the dauntless women formed a "bucket brigade," taking the chance of the Indians not caring to reveal their presence to so weak a foe, or of the ruse misleading them as to the strength of the fort. Their bravery mastered the situation, and Bryan Station fort held out until reinforcements came from a neighboring settlement, routing the Indians. To the memory of these stout-hearted women, their patriotic descendants, members of the Lexington Chapter Daughters of the Revolution, have erected a monument by enclosing the famous spring in a neat aone wall, upon the si des of which appear engraved tablets, perpetuating their names in the enduring rock. It is said to be the only monument built by women to the memory of women in the If 1!l 0world. At sthi ear oo fountain of sparkling water travelers sop to drink and 0refresh the mfemory with historic traditions. The Winchester road is noted for its fine old Southern homesteads and aristocratic neighborhoods, as well as for several superb modern stock farms of national reputation near town. For beauty of scenery it has few equals, and this impresses the traveler at every point. Woodlands along the route have been preserved to a great extent, and in summer the white bed of the pike is flecked by cool shadows. Almost every large homestead, and the road is lined with them on either' side, stands upon a lawn wide enough to include a whole block of city houses, and the people who live in them have just a Study-Anne and Aunt Sally. owned their land throughout generations. The Richmond pike leads out of Lexington on a broad boulevard, known as the "McDowell Speedway," and passes the gates and boundaries of "Ashland," home of Henry Clay, now owned by the McDowells, descendants of the Great Commoner, and kept hospitably open to visitors from all parts of the world. This place, in its picturesque beauty, has been too widely written up as the home of Henry Clay to need further mention here, but it may be fitting in a work of this sort to add that the fleet thoroughbreds produced at Ashland at present are adding lustre to its historical fame. The Richmond road also passes the limpid lakes of the city reservoirs, where pretty boats and club houses invite to many social recreations in season. A shining spoke in the wheel of pikes is the Tate's Creek road, which, like the Winchester, is noted for good neighborhoods and old, distinguished families, who have held their land grants for generations. Modern enterprise and active brains have converted these countr places into model stock farms, and the beautiful rural views along this highway are animated by the sleek forms of fine horses, who graze piacidly on the most luxuriant blue grass in all the country. A Goodly Herd of 0 Anra Goats. The Versailles pike, leading to the lovely little city of Versailles, ties Smiling upon the ltap of one of the richest counties in Kentucky. Woodford is especially rich in its forestry and its people. Its country places are like small principalities, and one of them, widely known as "Woodburn," has international reputation as the birthplace of the first great racers. Here, it may be said, that the foundation for American country gentleman life was laid, for not only was "Woodburn House" one of the first palatial homes to be established by a millionaire in the Blue Grass country, but the history of Woodburn stock farm is almost the history of the American turf in regard to both thoroughbred and trotting stock. The Harrodsburg pike leads to the oldest town in the State, a quiet, demure little city, full of historic interest, and along this road lie some of the most important stock farms and most elegant homes in the country. As a perfect type connecting the days of slavery with the feudal customs and splendor may be mentioned "Ingleside" home of the Gibsons. The house, built in Tudor style of architecture, resembles an Old World castle, with its lodge and park of ancient forest trees. The Russell Cave pike takes its name from the famous "Russell's Cave," which is one of the numerous large caverns for which Kentucky is famous, and which is located on land granted to Robert Spottswood Russell, a Revolutionary hero. He built A P ety. GaasyWcadand.Mt, Brilliant," whose great, white gallery pillars gleam through dark, green oliage of trees topping the hillside above the cave.

The rich meadows and woodlands forming the grand land-tracts 'of "Walnut Hall" lie a little beyond, and it is upon this country estate that the writer is loath to linger, for in it i s 6combined at once the old order and the new; the splendor of a past glory with the highe tpossibilities of present achievement. The man who converted "Walnut Hall" into a modern country home of magnificent proportions took an old foundation to build upon, for the mansion house was builtcby Vidor Flournoy, a Southern planter, as early as 1830, and still stands in simple elegance among its apme trees, unmarred by glitter or newness. Thousands of dollars have been spent upon its improvement, without altering the natural grandeur of the landscape, and today "Walnut Hall" is one of the; most beautiful of all the noted stock farms around Lexington. Thus, radiating out of Lexington and connecting the city with other'Kentucky'towns of lesser importance, lie the roadways, and a devotee to automobiling might find upon them a riich field of enjoyment were it not for the fact that a stronger passion for speeding blooded horses liestuppermost in the hearts of all who breathe Kentucky air. BTlie Paru:ittotiiit [1'. Feiture. Wh'eMayaHpy Ho i .S This brings us to the paramount "feature" of almost every Blue Grass country estate, for every such place must have its "feature" as a controlling and focusing "motif." It may be fine poultry, swine, cattle or dogs, in other States; here it seldom varies-the horse is king in Kentucky. When it was demonmtrated c beyond doubt that the horse, born and bred on Kentucky soil was superior AIin pointof strength peed to one reared on any ther part of the globe, then it was that men , with millions at their disposal first turned their eyes toward this favored State, eagerly grasping the possibilities it had to offer as a field for profitable investment and for the gratification of a sportsman's keen instinct for competitive entertainment, and these men of great wealth have helped to make a venitable garden spot of the rich lands surrounding Lexington, the country places established by them standing out with particular brilliance in the glittering array of homesteads. Suburban Railways Add to One's Enjoyment. Recalling their beauty and a view of the landscape during a typical racing season, when the latter lay like a vivid painting in varying shades of emerald on grass and foliage; when a golden-brown track stretched away under the horizon, bathed in mellow sunlight, the writer is tempted to abandon her figure of the wheel and its spokes for a jeweled "sunburst" with rays of light radiating from living gems. Other features of the landscape give distinctive character to this section of the State as an important agricultural centre, but they are often lost sight of in the more conspicuous business of breeding fine stock. The growing of hemp, like the breeding of Shorthorn cattle, was one of 0the primitive occupations of Kentucky country life, and so characteristic that writers have dwelt at length upon Kentucky's hemp fields, as ,they have upon her blue grass meadows. Views of these fields, when animated by the figures of negro "breakers" in picturesque though ragged attire, are often beautiful in the extreme, giving a touch of novelty to the surrounding grasslands. Hemp was planted on the first clearing made in the wilderness, and the nature of the soil is said to be particularly adapted to its growth. Kentucky early became the great hemp producing section of the world, and before the Civil War demolished the labor system many large fortunes were made in this industry, which is still an important one, despite all I modern interests. Corn, also, is largely cultivated, and passing along the country roads one is often :struckwith the natural- ;beauty ofthe' cornfields, though this homely produc Jis' 'seldom rdeemed '0a- sightly addition, however necessary to one's country place." But, look at it now--the cornfield-when blade and stalk a e green and shimmering in the sunlight. It is just breaking into tassel. Along each stem new, juicy ears throw out silk in crimson and golden strands. Aloft, sword-like leaves toss and hiss in the light, wind, seeming to jeer the lowly bean-vine that vainly attempts to carry its fruit to the tasseling. Between the stalks, standing rank upon rank and tier upon tier, morning glories are trailing their azure Making Hay While the Sun Shines. and alabaster blooms in a dew-wet tangle. The wind dies, and look at it again-the field-with its myriads of erect stalks, its wealth of corn and the plume-like tassels with their imprisoned sunlight. Mark in what motionless calm it is standing. How limitless and endless it seems, and how the tallest stalks lose their identity in one harmonious, pulsating whole. Iflarvesthi4ig thee HItie Grass. Then, there is the blue grass seed itself. Few visitors who come to this section of _______ the world, attracted by the fame of fast horses that graze upon blue grass meadows, realize that there is splendid investment in the seed of the famous grass itself, and that nine-tenths of the blue grass seed of the world is raised in this section of Kentucky. A glimpse at the great tracts of grasslands surrounding Lexington is particularly inter- esting during the time of harvesting the seed. The warm June sun shines down upon rolling, wind-stirred waves of ripened grass. That elusive season when there is, for a Xbrief period, reallya "blue" tint to the tasseling is past, and the tops have mellowed Typical Southern Barnyard Scene. into a :golden-brown hue. The azure look is only seen for a day 0 or two on ; the blue grass, and then just before its full nipening. Acre upon acre lifts its heavy pods for the gleaning, and as far as the eye can reach is seen an exquisite blending of blade and plume, relieved by clumps of dark green trees in the woodlands, and the intense blue of the sky overhead. An ocean of grass these meadows seem; a grassy ocean, which suggests the movement and charm of the sea. Upon its surface the wind stirs wave after wave of alternate light and shadow, billows that rise and fall and fall again until they seem to blend with the sky on the horizon, or break into golden foam at one's Building at Sycamore Park T hat Is Over 100 Years Old. feet. Bird and beasQ and insect are awake in these meadows at earliest dawn, and they seem a place of enchantment as the scent of the sweet-briar is wafted across the open. As early as the birds comes a regiment of negro "tstrippers," from thirty to seventy-five in number, who are given by Dame Nature but ten all too short days in which to garner the grass-seed harvest. They begin to work at four o'clock in the morning and labor until it is dark, stripping and scraping and putting the seed into sacks to be hauled to the barns for the curing. During the time of harvesting the army of workers camp out on the farm in the shade of some convenient bit of woodland and here they live a sort of gypsy life of joyous freedom and well-earned rest in spite of days of hard toil. Often sweetest strains of plantation melody break into the insed voices of the night, and from the precincts of their camp the sound of banjo music comes softened to the ear. Out in the country this work of harvesting the grass-seed takes place on almost every farm, and means busy days for master and man. The machines mutt be in perfedt order and kept so; the sunny days must be taken advantage of from dawn to dark, and then the season is almost too short to accomplish the important work on the larger tracts.

Next comes the wheat harvest, a most important season in the annals of farm life, and should you pay a visit to the wheat fields at this time you will be charmed and fascinated with the work that is going on. Reapers are running on every side, and golden grain is falling gently and systematically An Important Industry-Shocking Hemp. beneath the knives. The driver, in blue overalls and wide straw hat, together with the boy who rides a "lead horse," seem of more importance than the old-time kings who rode reapers of death into battle-fields, A swarm of laughing, happy negroes stoop to pick up bundles of grain as they fall, for even in the busiest season the blissful irresponsibility of this race is always uppermost. The Southerner who employs the negro invariably and philosophically takes this trait into his calculations and seldom interferes with it. Indeed, an indulgence is shown at times that proclaims mutual sympathy, as a typical incident will show. Suddenly a half-grown rabbit leaves the wheat and scampers across the cut sward, wild fun and confusion following in his wake. Every man, boy and dog on foot in the field stops work and gives chase. Bundles of grain are flung at him, and the darkies shout and fall over one another in the scramble. If the owner of the farm is in the field, which he almost invariably is, mounted on a saddle-horse and riding from place to place giving orders, instead of administering a rebuke at the interruption of work, he puts spurs to his horse and rushes pell-mell into the hunt. The rabbit escapes, however, for no one seriously means to catch him, taking refuge in another field that is yet unharvested. It is but an episode, a momentary diversion, a break in the monotony of the day's hard a__ labor, and it is a mean master indeed, who would deny to his hands this brief relaxation. Another week or two and the "lthresher," with all its followers, comes slowly oalong theroad toward the 0wheat fields, and the triumphant parade of this pageant_ Relic of Bygone Days-Log Corn Cribs. along the still, country roads, has a charm deeper than any circus or city procession. 0 Two clumsyy lumbering 'oxen lead the way, hauling a water barrel, for steam has dispensed with their labor at the machinery, and a negro sits astride one of them beating the other with a green bough to make the deliberate brute keep step. Behind, comes the engine, puffing its black smoke into the faces of the men who are guiding it in its halting course, and the engineer, standing in the little cab, grimy with soot and oil, is a conspicuous figure in the line. Next comes the gaudy red "separator," its top crowded with harveft hands, sooty and dusty, some of them singing in a minor key, which rises penetratingly above the jingle of harness and creaking of wheels. Lastly comes a light wagon, driven by a negro, and bearing as its only other occupant the young man who is owner and manager of the thresher as well as of an ancestral farm of goodly proportions. He balances himself, half recumbent, upon the jolting wagon frame, and fans with his wide-brimmed straw hat, for the season is warm. just a Little Touch of Nature. uHis shirt, open at the neck, displays a strong, sunbrowned throat and chest, while his rolled-up sleeves show the sinewy brawn of muscular, shapely arms and hands. His smooth, young face is full of strength, and his keen eyes have taken in every detail of the march since the early morning start. He is a type of what the country produces in a vigorous manhood, and the honest, hard labor of his life is ennobled by the enthusiasm he puts into it. We, who are apt to think that the only important field for a man's activities lies in commercial, financial or professional pursuits, might learn a lesson from the life of this young farmer in the tact, skill and firmness with which he rules his kingdom. The negroes must be governed wisely and unflinchingly. If a machine breaks he has enough mechanical education to repair the damage. if anyone gets hurt at the wheels he is enough of a physician to take the first steps in Surgery Preparatory to the doctor's arrival.

America needs her farmers, perhaps more than her leisure class of country gentlemen. Acin Eifffective Filtislh. Seed and wheat harvest over, the time comes, which of all the year, is most enjoyable and inspiring to Kentucky and her visitors. October brings glorious weather, and the Fall trots. Lexington seems suddenly to emerge then from a peaceful, quiet city, into the full activity, color and importance of a racing centre. Nowhere in the world, it is said, is the pleasure to be found in speeding swift horses so complete and keen as that which is experienced by the onlooker at the Lexington track, for here the greatest turf celebrities are put to their best mettle on native soil; the North, East and West meet the South, as it were, on common ground and in mutual interest. Visitors from all parts of the world pour into Lexington, taxing every hotel or lodging to its utmost capacity. The quiet country road, along which the thresher passed, is suddenly broken by the full, musical blast of the stage horn as a stylish, modern coach, drawn by four superb horses, with outriders and flunkeys in livery, testify to the fact that the owners and their guests upon some one of the larger country estates have started to the trots. Here they witness the trials of their own well-bred favorites or share in the triumph of some more fortunate friend. Here representatives of the old social order meet and clasp hands with the new; the small farmer gossips with the greater. Members of a fashionable Eastern social world learn to know and respect the fad that there is a line drawn in the South beyond which money alone can never go, and the simple, perhaps, too strict, view of an ancient code responds to a broader and better fellowship. Nature, itself, seems to smile upon Kentucky's Fall trots, for seldom is the program interrupted by unpleasant weather. Crisp, cool Autumn mornings dawn day after day, with an occasional period of soft, dreamy, hazy hours, in which all the mildness of Spring, all the fullness of Summer, and all the charm of a glorious Indian Summer has been crowded.

These fields are crowded with fashionable equipages, and here and there a splendid saddle horse is seen moving gracefully about among them, guided by a skillful rider.

Every eye is bent upon the satiny, quivering forms of the contestants, every heart beats with the exultant exhilaration which any clean trial of strength calls forth, and the full significance of country life in Kentucky is fathomed to its depths. ...22 ...

Will Sayre, a social leader, suddenly determined in the midst of a brilliant career, to purchase a country place and live onl it, and what is more to the point, to make it pay, many were skeptical as to results. How well she succeeded, however, was proven by the fame of 'Kenmore as a dairy farm wNhich soon extended all over the blue grass section. The Kenniore Jerseys were the finest cattle to be found inl Kentucky and dairy l)roducts of the farm bore something of the reputation for excellence that the Biltmore supplies did in Asheville, N. C. Interest centered both in the Jerseys and their management which was entirely under Mrs. Sayre. But it is not gas a (lairy farm that Kenmore is noted today, for its rich grasslands are tused exclusively now for the care and production of fine horses. As such it is one of the best establishments in the blue grass region. View of House from Road. wDownv\ Where the Sycamore Shelters thle Creek.

Mr. Barbee has equipped this beautiful farm with all the up-to-date con- veniences and will, in addition to caring for his own select band of mares, board thoroughbreds for other people.

A Type of Architecture That Takes One's Fancy to Countries Across the Water. N interesting thread of history is woven upon the Tudor-Gothic walls of Glengarry. the home of Mr. Janmes Blylthe Anderson, for in the style of its ar- ,,Al chitecture and in its name, it betrays an Old World connection with Scotland. Then the long row of brick cabins still standing in the rear of the mansion house recalls days of American slavery. Glengarry was established in the New World by Alexander Brand, a Scotchman, whose descendants still preserve his genuine court-of-arms and crest. It is now owned by a man who possesses the highest American badge of nobility,-the Order of Cin- cinnati. Glengarry is situated three miles from Lexington on the Newtown Pike, and contains 35) acres of well-sodded land. The house stands in a bower of beautiful trees and shrubs, upon a slight elevation. While not mnaking horses a principal feature of his place, Mr. Anderson possesses some fine ones, together with the best pedigreed stock in other departments. MRATRIAXNA-CO)L. MILTON YOUNG.

A FEW minutes drive from Lexington over the Newtown Pike, and one is at McGrathiana, home of Colonel Milton Atoung, that typical Kentucky Colonel," who, through open-handed hospitality, has won friends for himself in all parts of the world. As a breeding establishment for thoroughbred horses, Mc- Grathiatia is recognized as second to none by the entire turf world. Its broad, well-watered estate, containing over 2,2)0 acres, is unrivaled in point of location and adaptability for its dominant purpose, and the horses produced there have won fame and fortune for their owner upon almost every race course of America and on the Continent. A unique feature in regard to its equipment as an up-to-date stock farm is an original method of supplying water to the horses at all seasons. CoIl Young, who believes in the value of fresh water flowing from limestone sources. has contrived a "winter warehouse," built with solid rock walls, two feet thick, into which flows fresh spring water, and this is kept at one temperature, even in freezing weather. McGrathiana tooks its name frorn Price Mc rathi, from whom Col. Xouing purchased the estate. The spacious homestead, which stanlds upon an ele- vated site, is well adapted to the hospitality of its host. McGRATHIANA-COL.

TI-L IR'FE miles from Lexington. on the \Winchester Pike, opposite the beautiful IP'atchen Wilkes Stock Farmn, lies Ilamlburg Place, the breed- ing plant of Mr. John E. Madden. Though among the more recent of Kentucky thoroughbred stock farms, there are few others anywhere better or more favorably known. It emblraces about 1,60l:)0 acres of choice blue grass land, stretching along the Winchester Pike, with the C. Q. Railroad in the rear. Ilamburg Place differs from many others of the large Kentucky breeding plants, in that it is not only a breeding but a training ground as well for the horses which it sends forth. ,\r. Madden has given the turf such stars as Hlamburg, Irish Lad. Yankee, Blue Girl, Henoo, Prince of Melbourne and D)avid Garrick. None of these, it is true, are prodltcts of IHlamnburg IPlace. and all of themnw ere bought as yearlings by its owner. But here they were developed and here thev were given the preliminary work which enabled them to win the richest stakes of the East. To the rear of the handsome residence on the place is a paved court around which the barns and other outbuildings are grouped. M\Iost prominent of them are the stallion barn and the two large training stables, all three models of their kind. Near them is the three-quarter mile training track. There are many famouis thoroughbreds at IHamburg Place at the present time. Most notable among theni are the Futuritv winners. Ogden and Yankee. (O)n the farm also is a choice herd of Shetland ponies, the property of Mr. Madden's two sons, John E. \Madden. Jr., and Joseph Madden.

For years the residence has been one of the show places of Bourbon County and has possibly been the scene of as many social functions as any country residence in Central Kentuckv. In every respect it is a grand specimen of the architecture of the early part of the nineteenth century. Btin it is in the surroundings of this grand old place that the visitor'sl attention is most often riveted. It is safe to say that no other country 0place in lKentrickv offers a similar situation. The old log- house which was used as a residence before the present inposing structure was built is still where it was over a centuirv ago, and is still in fair condition. Du1ring slavery times the farnm was self-sustaining in every respect. Boots and shoes, chairs and tables, cloth for the clothing re- quired-everythinig needed on the place was manufactured by the slaves. For this purpose there were carpenter shop)s, blacksmith shops, wveaving ho itses. mill's. etc., scattered about the farmn an(l these buildings are to,-dav ills tin existence. gi V- ing the place thle appearance of a small village. And some of these bhildings are at the present tine occulpied by the very darkies who formerly worked in thein as slaves, some of them refusing to leave the buildings even after thev had been offered nuore pretentious quarters elsewhere.

Shakertown is located on the table lands just above the junction of the Kentucky and the D)icks rivers. The scenery in the immediate vicinity is particularly beautiful. Nature was assisted years ago by the Shakers who built quaint old brick and stone buildings and many miles of stone fences. Evidences of their handiwork still exist al- though the Shakers are fast dying out, The residence at Clifton is one of these grand piles of architecture and is furnished throughout with old hand-made Shaker furniture. Some years ago, when it seemed as though the last excuse for remaining in existence had left Shakertown almost off the map, Clif- ton farm sprung in existence and has put new life into the sleepy village. Here at Clifton not only are saddle horses bred and raised, but green horses are put through their "stunts" and by means of a graded course of training are converted into the finished American Saddle horse. Cecil Palmer was at the head of the stud muntil his death and now The Moor, who won the prize for two year olds at the Kentucky State Fair, promises to be a worthy successor. Shak-ertown is located at Natural Bridge Station on the Queen and Crescent road and is convenient to Burgin and Harrodsburg.
