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.” “Thou art j?one from amonj?Ht U9, but We will not deplore thee. Though sorrow and darkness encompass thy tomb, Thy Savior has passed through its portals before thee. And the ligrht of His love was thy guide through its gloom.” Resolved, 1. That we deplore the death of our brother, ar.d also the loss of his useful services to the church, but that we how in meek submission to the Divine will. Resolved, 2. That we deeply and sin cerely sympathize with his bereaved wife and children, and also with all of his kindred. Resolved, 3. That a copy of this me morial and these resolutions be spread on the church record. Resolved, 4. That a copy of this me morial he sent to the family, to the Christian Index, also a copy to each of our city papers for publication. Theo B. Davis, A. D. Freeman, A. B. Cates, Committee. intendent, and that we how ourl heads in Christian resignation at this, another instance of our Heavenly Father’s dis pensation towards His children. 2. That the wife, children, relatives and friends of our deceased brother he comforted by the Christian consola tion: “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints;” “Je sus knows our sorrow and He cares; He is moved in compassion because of our infirmities.” 3. That a copy of these resolutions ho spread on the minutes of the Sun day-school as a perpetual memorial of our love and esteem for our departed friend and brother, and of his services and fidelity to duty as our beloved su perintendent; that a copy he given to the family of the deceased, and that these resolutions he furnished to each of our county papers for publication. 1.

Moore, of Kentucky, owned a large number of ne groes. He was a kind master and never 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 vain. In the meantime a thunderstorm came up and Jupe sought refuge under a brush heap. Directly the light ning struck a large poplar near by, 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: “Mr. Lightnin’, I wush yo’ hed jes’ tried yo’r ban’ on dis black-gum. Any blame fool can split a poplar!” “Pa, what does the umpire have to do?” “The umpire, my boy, is the man who has to take the blame for all the bad playing when the home team loses. ” AN OLD ADACE SAYS—^ “A light purse is a heavy curse” Sickness mnkc3 a light purse.
