CAMP OF "THE LONG
Traces of the camp of the "long
hunters," famous in the annals of
Kentucky history the latter part of
the Eighteenth Century, may be
found by a party of Lexingtonians
who plan to explore a cave near
Hill Springs, Wayne county, the
latter part of this month.
. The "long hunters," it is related,
came to Kentucky in 1770 from the
Holesteen, the Clinch and the New
River regions and pitched camp in
.Wayne county about six miles from
the present site of Monticello. From
here they scatter in various direc
tions to seek game, agreeing to re
turn every five weeks to deposit the
fruits of their labor at the common
The adventurous spirit of the
"long hunters," however, prevented
them from keeping their agreement.
,The hand of forty gradually drifted
apart. Finally, in the early part of
1771, the nine remaining members
of the band set out for home with
the pelts they had gathered. At
Cumberland Gap they were met hy a
hand of Cherokees, who relieved
them of their valuahle burden and
they return home empty-handed.
The party of explorers will be led
as sung by the old colored popula
tion in days gone by. Songs sung
with a peculiar charm, which we
hope will not be lost forever; they
seemed to have a higher, nobler
music of their o.wn.
If you have never heard those old
melodies as sung on the farm, in
corn field, 6r on the cotton planta
tion by the southern colored people,
if you have never listened to the
harmony of their voices as the rich
tones are caught and carried by the
breezes out on Je warm night air,
then you have missed something
Negro melodies of the South have
always been xvery popular with the
American people and during the war
they enjoyed a vogue in Eng
land. But it is claimed that the re
markable prosperity of the South
has had disastrous effect on the ne
gro melodies. They seem to have
forgotten all about "Massa's in the
Cold, Cold Ground," and "Swing
Low, Sweet Chariot." In fact, the
colored people "apparently shun the
melodies, typical of the Southland
for the typical songs of musical
Somewhere way down in Georgie,
we feel certain, could one drive to a
little cabin, all tattered and un
painted there'd be songs by the light
of the moon, which would easily
melt the coldest heart. Again we'd
find the young folks rolling on the
little cabin floor all merry, all hap
py and gay, and again we'd listen
to the old folks in 'the meadow or
near the cabin door singing as of
old, not the new. airs of the day,
but melodies of harmony, and low, a
characteristic of the colored "music
as sung in the Sunny South.

Having lived beyond the reason
able expectation of the endurance of
the silver cord, James K. Patterson
probably felt as death hovered at his
couch, that he had finished his
course. Certainly he had the satis
faction of secure knowledge that he
had fought a good fight. Kentucky
will fail to honor herself if the State
be amiss in anything developing
utfon Kentuckians, to keep alive the
public appreciation of a man who
served so faithfully, so long and so
well in advancing the cause of t edu
cation in this Commonwealth.
For forty-one years James K.
Patterson strove mightly in behalf
of the University of Kentucky. His
was a bitter struggle, for he had to
fight down ignorance and stupidity
in practically every session of the
Legislature. Yet he moved forward
and his progress for his beloved in
stitution was the progress of Ken
tucky. Forced into pleading annu
ally for the taxation pittance which
had to serve for the maintenance of
the University, Doctor Patterson
not only kept the school going, but
spreading and becoming more and
more a vital factor for the release of
Kentucky farm hoys from th.e bond
age of primitive methods and means.
The experiment station which is
so useful and important in' bringing
Kentucky agriculture to its -full fru
ition was founded by Doctor Patter
son. The grounds for the Agricul
tural College were obtained by him.
The appropriation for this college
was due to his efforts. That Doctor
Patterson was a man of parts was
never better demonstrated than
when he went into court and fought
successfully the attempts of law
yers to establish the unconstitu
tionality of the University's appro
priation from the State.
James K. Patterson was of Scotch
birth and blood. Maybe it was Scotch
zeal for education which made him
so tenacious and so conquering in
his determination to open the doors
of the house of learning to the young '
people of Kentucky. But he was a
Kentuckian by choice and Kentucky
claiming him can hardly go too far
in displying appreciation of what
his coming meant to the State.

THE OLD FAMILY TODDY
According to a rural paper a Cen
tral Kentucky man prides himself in
the possession of a "toddy glass"
that has been in the family for over
a century. The "toddy glass" recalls
an old Kentucky custom that was
an institution down to ante-bellum
The "toddy glass" was utilized for
the mixing of an old-fashioned toddy
that was passed around and partak
en of by company and the family.
The common toddy existed before
the sanitary crusade started and in
dividual toddies became the vogue.
In these days even if prohibition did
not stand in the way, the , old-time
"toddy glass.' likely would be placed
under the health law along with
the common drinking cup.
Judging by the tales we read, we
should judge that even an old salt
will sometimes get fresh.
