Resolutions of Respect on the Death
of Bro. L. M. Farmer.
Luther M. Farmer was born in Cow
et county, Ga., on the Hist clay of De
cember, 1856. and died at Newnan, Ga.,
on the 27th day of October, 1909.
In his death a good man passed into
the great unknown. Bro. Farmer an
swered correctly and truthfully the
question, “Is life worth living,” most
unerringly. First, by living a life of
usefulness to every other life with
which he came in contact; second, by
living a life with strict and supreme
reference to a future life—a life with
God beyond the grave. All through his
life of 53 years one uppermost thought
seemed to occupy bis mind. His early
life was spent on the farm of his lath
er, Deacon .1. .). Farmer, late of said
county, and it was here he studied and
practiced the excellent rules of indus
try and economy so much needed in ev
ery avocation in the business world. It
was also here he received instruction
as to the importance of cultivating his
heart and mind for other and more dif
ficult pursuits. As his father gave him
opportunity to attend the country and
village schools he applied himself with
true devotion to prepare himself for
higher studies and more advanced edu
cation ; and it was while still living on
the farm he caught the inspiration of
pious parents and began to think of his
true condition towards the God who
gave him being and the Jesus Christ
who died to save sinners. He 3aid in
substance to a friend in after years
that the more he examined his own
heart the less fitted he felt to meet
God, and that for days he tried to re
pent, to pray and obtain pardon, but
finally he looked to Christ and pardon
and belief and joy caine. Without un
necessary delay, but with some fear
and misgiving, he applied for mem
bership in the Missionary Baptist
church at Ebenezer, Coweta coun
ty. and was baptized into the fellow
ship of that church by liev. R. E.
Pitman. This occurred when he was
about 16 years of age. And the fact
that he had now identified himself with
the church of Christ made him realize
more fully, perhaps, than ever before
his duties to his fellow-men, and to God
and his Savior. And thus ho became the
more inspired to seek after knowledge
and the more earnestly to pursue his du
ties as his limited means and opportu
nities authorized. In due time he had
prepared himself for college, and in the
year 1878 he entered the State Univer
sity at Athens, Ga., from which insti
tution! he graduated in the class of
1,881. Very soon thereafter he became
a school (teacher, and taught several
flourishing schools built up by his in
domitable will and energetic efforts.
While thus teaching in Georgia he was
unanimously elected to a prufessorship
in Howard College, Alabama This
place he filled with entire satisfaction
to the trustees, the other professors,
and to the student body and their pa
rents, hut failing health warned him
to resign his place and seek a much-
needed rest. After a short rest he was
again asked to accept another school in
Georgia, and did so. but soon found
that his health would not justify his
continuing to teach. He soon began
the study of law and after admission
to the bur located in Newnan, where he
at once took good rank in his profes
sion. He also brought to Newnan his
church letter and became a member of
the First church, and after a few years
he was made a deacon, which office he
held up to his death, and again after a
year or two more he was elected su
perintendent of the Sunday-school,
which place he also held up to the
time of his death.
He was married to Miss Berta Camp,
of Coweta county, Dec. 4, 1890, and
was a devoted and loving husband, a
faithful, wise and judicious father. He
was a loving brother, a true friend.
He was for a term a member of the
Georgia Legislature from Coweta coun
ty, but did not ask for re-election. He
also served the City of Newnan for the
past ten or twelve years as a member
of the Board of Education.
Thus, in all these varied calls to
duty, he had in each and all of them
acted out the maxim, “Act well your
your part, there all phe honor lies,”
and it may in very truth be said he did
act his part well. Such a life is a suc
cess, for hia works do follow him. He
needs no eulogy from us, for his un-
tarnishd life and faithful work is his
eulogy to everybody who knew him.
Farewell, dear, quiet, earnest, faithful
brother and servant of us, thy compan
ions, and Jesus Christ thy Savior.
“Thou canst never return to us, but we
hope to come where we believe thou
art—to the mansion not made with
hands, eternal in the heavens.”

In ante-bellum days Col. Moore, of

punished his negroes with a whip. One
day one of the field hands named
"Jupe” was guilty of some negligence
and was sent to the woods at once to
cut down and split up a black-gum
tree, practically an impossible task.
“Jupe” cut down the tree and labored
hard to split the tough wood, hut in

came up and Jupe sought refuge under
a brush heap. Directly the light

splitting it into kindling wood. After
the storm had passed Jupe crawled
out from his place of security and after
taking a careful look at the remains of
the poplar tree, which were scattered
all over the woods, said:
