We had just emerged from the Civil War. Institutions of learning in the South and Southwest were prostrate. Many of the states were bankrupt Kentucky suffered much during the Civil War, but in no proportion commensurate with its area. Notwithstanding this, people in Kentucky were thinking of anything else than, education. The land scrip representing. 330,000 acres by the of public land were placed state in the hands of the sinking fund They appointed Madcommissioners. ison C. Johnson, ranked at that time as the ablest lawyer and the best business man in Kentucky, to Negotiate ,the sale of their land scrip. He went east and without exercising much discretion placed the stock upon the market and sold it for fifty cents per acre, realizing from that magnifiicent domain giyen by Congress for the" foundation and endowment of a college to supply, its citizens instruction in agri culture and the mechanic arts, only $165,000. Even this small sum seem ed a large endowment to' institutions, established for higher learning, which up until that time thought themselves well provided with an endowment fund of $100,000 or $150,000. The college was placed in successful operation with a small, but able and energetic faculty, and supplied instruction as best it could with the means at its disposal. They managed tolerably well to give instruction in the rudiments of physics, chemistry, botany and zoology, thus laying the foundation for a system cf practical education which it was hoped would come into being when the income of the institution became larger. But practical instruction was out of the question. There were no laboratories .other than those of the most rudimentary character and no instruction of a practical character possible un- - 4 Stroller .

The Agricultur al College of Kentucky felt its disability in common with the rest of the institutions owing their existence to the act of 1862, but how to remedy the deficiency no one seemed tobe able to lead the way. In the summer of 1885, walking out on the college campus one afternoon, I chanced to meet a gentleman named Hanna, of Shelby county, who had been one of the opponents of the in stitution in its effort to obtain additional income from the legislature of 1880. Though he had opposed vehemently, in common with most of his agricultural brethern, the impo sition of the half cent tax, the per sonal relations between him and me had "remained pleasant. In conversa tion about what the college was doing. he incidently remarked that he had seen him, I ventured, upon the com heard that a movement was on foot mendations which I had received of to bring about a meeting of the repre- him .from varied sources, to make a sentatives of agricultural colleges in definite arrangement with him to take over the headship of our experiment Washington, about midsummer, justified the made inquiry and found that his state station work.
