souri, where their fourth child, Samuel L. Clemens ( Mark Twain), was born.

EDMONTON, 231.2 m. (800 alt., 237 pop.), overlooking the Little Barren River, is an unincorporated community, but is the seat of Metcalfe County. The town is named for Edmond Rogers, a soldier of Virginia, who came to Kentucky after the Revolutionary War. He acquired 20,000 acres of land and a large number of slaves, and laid out a town here.

The TRIGG FISH HATCHERY (L), 246.8 m., is the only spring-fed hatchery operated by the State.

GLASGOW, 249.9 m. (780 alt., 5,042 pop.) (see Tour 6), is at the junction with US 31E (see Tour 6) and State 90 (see Tour 20).

At intervals along the highway are lonely little log cabins perched on ridges or half-hidden in the coves; patches of cornfields on the steep hillsides; and the unsightly shacks of small mining settlements.
