On First Kentucky Home '-.Which Is
Near Barbourville
History was In the mating .when.
the first house was built In Ken
tucky and Knox County lias thq dis
tinction ot being, the site ot the first
house built... not pnlyMn Kentucky,
but west ot the Alloghenjea,
In the year 1750 Doctor Thomas
Walker, ot Virginia, having come
tHra Cumberland Gap arrived In
what WnoW-known as Knox County
but which at that tlzno 'was a wide
stretch ot tree 'clad hills and grass
covered valleys. Moved probably by
ah instinct that the beautiful spot
should bo a place ot homes, Dr.'
Walker, Ambrose Powell, Coulby
Chew, Harry Lawless and John
Laws built a cabin ot fresh hewn
logs whloh stood tor many years as
a historical landmark.
Mr. George Owens, ot the freight
department ot the L .& N. Railroad
who has a liking tor history, has
delved deeply Into the facts pertain
ing to tho building of this first "home
in the wilderness. Moreover, he Is
supported by ample evidence from
other sources that this house was
tho vanguard ot the thousands ot
homes that dot the Commonwealth
of Kentucky, and also that It
was the original ihome first 'built on
this side of the Afleghenles.
Mr. Owens has personally ihad a
monument ot rough cobbles erected

Those Favorov
The border method ot Irrigation, fol
lowed In many parts ot the western
states, Is well adapted to a variety ot
soils and crops and Is growing rapidly
In public favor. As described In
Farmers' Bulletin. 1243, 'Tho Border
Method of Irrlgntlftri prepared by
Samuel Fortlcr and now Issued by tho
Upltcd States Department of Agricul
ture, tho method consists cssentlhllj'

Crops Suited for Irrigation.
It seldom pays, It Is said, to prepare
n field for the border method for one
crop. The method Is well adapted to
the irrigation of nlfnlfa, clover und
other forage crops, as well as nil
grains, and the fomgc crops may be

ed, the majslng of (permanent .borders
may be undrtafcen without undoing
much of .the'prpvlous season's work.
Slopes Are Essential.

,up to ? fe'et and taore per hundred.
Borders' have been" used on slopes as
great1 as 7 feet to the hundred feet,
biit extra caro must en be taken to
prevent soil and crop erosion:
The amount of lrtiter that can -be
turned Into hc strip depends on the
,ele,of each-strip, its .slope, and other
conditions. In narrow," short strips
the 'bead used may be reduced to half
n cubic foot a second or from 20 to
23 miners' Inches, and In wide, long
strips 10 cubic feet n second may be
none too large. A large volume of
water cannot.be handled successfully
on $teep slopes, but It .Is always pos
sible to divide a head' between two pr
more compartments.
