STATE coLLEGE or KENTUCKY. 3 Briug ber, ,335, when the Department was organized and a Director l°l{€€ ,,,,P0iDt6d_ In 1886 the Station was recognized and named by the Sfmt General Assembly, and in 1887 it and a similar Station in every other iiqufl State were eaCl1 endowed by C011gl'€SS with an annual appropriation of ll 0 0oo. Colm 515,The work of the Station is directed to two objects: 1. To a con- “'lll» Smntsnccession of experiments made by specialists, in order to learn _SC“l° what applications of science will insure the best returns from the farm, the the garden, the orchard, the vineyard, the stockyard, and the dairy, fd l0 2_ To the publication of bulletins announcing such results of the experi- ments as are found to be valuable to those of the people of Kentucky who seek profit from either of those prime sources of wealth .- the soil, the Bock, or the herd. esto Results of experiments have been published in ten annual reports uhng and eighty-five bulletins, and general appreciation of their utility is dies, shown in the fact that, while no bulletin is sent except upon application g as _ for it, the mailing list of the Station contains more than 8,000 names, mote and is ever increasing. veral With an ample endowment, a large and commodious building icul- planned for the purpose, adequate apparatus, a good experimental farm llhas conveniently situated, and seven capable scientists always employed nted and in correspondence with other stations, the Kentucky Experiment i all Station is not only an important adjunct of the College in the education l lm of students for the leading industrial pursuits, but, directly or indirectly, . loes, through the wide and continual diffusion of knowledge for the benefit of so large a proportion of our population, it is bound to be extremely useful to the Commonwealth at large. the I mil LOCATION. high The State College of Kentucky is established in the old City Park, ;e of just within the southern boundary of Lexington and near the Cincinnati not Southern Railway. The site is elevated and commands a good view of ll he much of the city and of the surrounding country. ideg Lexington, now a growing city of thirty—odd thousand inhabitants, is in the heart of the far—famed Bluegrass Region, a region distin- has guished for fertility and healthfulness, wealth and beauty. Numerous and schools and churches, an intelligent and refined population, well·paved hey Streets, handsome buildings, extensive water-works, and an unsurpassed ' tlly, system of street electric railways make Lexington attractive as a seat ;au of learning and place of residence, while the splendid stock farms scat- ,, to tcred over the large body of fertile country around it afford advantages hardly equalled elsewhere for the student who desires to become famil- iar with the best breeds of horses, cattle, sheep, and swine in America. Moreover, Lexington is the railroad center of Kentucky, and in immedi- iof atc connection with Louisville, Cincinnati, Maysville, and Chattanooga, em- and with more than seventy counties of the Commonwealth. .*1 & ; · .
