    KENTUCKIANS ARE DIFFERENT M. B. MORTON 50 quot Years Reporter and Editor PUBLISHED BY THE STANDARD PRESS LOUISVILLE, KY. 1938 Copyright, 1938 By M. B. Morion BINDERY OJj 1954 99459. J, 9 v M. B. MORTON This Volume is dedicated to tKe memory of tke fine old slave Negroes to wkom tke writer is largely indebted for tke educa tion ke received in Nature s University. PREFACE J. HIS is the story of the life and observations of one who has been in the newspaper business for over fifty years, serving as reporter, city editor, and managing editor on newspapers in Russell ville and Louisville, Kentucky Birmingham, Alabama, and Nash ville, Tennessee. He kept an imperfect diary and a scrapbook most of that time, though the first half of this was burned in the great Nashville fire in 1916. As a consequence most of the articles from my scrapbook were written after that time and appeared in the Nashville Banner, of which paper I was managing editor for thirty nine years, None of these are credited to the Banner, except where, for some reason, it seemed necessary. A few articles not written by the author are duly credited. Aside from a few personal observations, this book is merely a narration of facts. As a boy slave-owner, a boy during the War Between the States, a pioneer in Washington Territory, and a daily newspaper worker, my experiences have been varied. I am hoping the book will be interesting to those who read it, and a contribution to the history of the times through which I have passed, since 1 first saw the light of day on a Kentucky farm, August 6, 1859. Though I was born in Kentucky and lived there until I was twenty-three years old, I never really knew Kentucky until, after some yearsabsence in the West and South, I returned to Louisville and began work for the Courier-Journal Then as a semi-stranger I discovered that Kentuckians were not like any other people, and that Kentucky hospitality was not a myth, though you found it was expressed differently. Nowhere else are you met so cordially, nowhere else are you sized up so quickly, and nowhere else is your status as friend or foe so rapidly determined. And you must be one or the other. Also Kentuckians frequently demand that you be a friend of their friends and a foe to their foes. The stories I tell in this book ought to convince you that my conclusions are correct. The few stories that have no bearing on Kentucky are inserted because I think they are worth preserving. M. B. MORTON. CONTENTS Page I.
