One by one the bravo and fearless
Christian heroes of our denomina-
tion and raco are passing from time
to a brighter land than this. Step
by step the peerless friend with
their faces smitten by the light of
intelligence and usefulness. After
having led the galent hosts on to
triumphal victory and Imperishable
renown havo'lald their swords asido
and now forever sleep within glo-
rious Immortality while their good
deeds still live with men of thought
Whereas we the members compos
ing the First Baptist church Vian
have sustained the loss of our most
honored and esteemed pastor oRv. L.
.1. Haywood who departed this life
Sunday April ISth at 2: 25 a. m.
at his home In Muskogee Okla.
Whereas it has pleased Divino
Providence the Architect and Builder
of the unhoise to icmove from our
readership that great shepherd and
wise counselor characterized by tho
life of the Apostle Paul one who
told tho story of the cross of Cal-
vary in a most convincing way and
1 Whereas our beloved pastor re-
mained loyal to his denomination
and faithful to his raco and mi ar
dent worker as a Gospel preacher
in Texas Arkansas and Oklahoma.
Not only did ho pastor great church-
es in Arkansas but served as Mis-
sionary of that state. Not only 1ms
I he pastoied great churches in 'Col-
I Ipte Diftrlct but has served as Mis-
sionary in said district and tho Stato
of Oklahoma as well. Ho was an
important factor in the advance-
ment of both the Association and
Convention and not onl ythe First
Baptist church of Vian but many
others will miss him because of tho
influence which ho exercised for tho
work. His last charge in the causo
of our Heavenly Father was the
pastoral care of the East Star Bap-
tist church of McAIester and this
church which I know represent.
Whereas wo feel so keenly tho
loss of one with whom we have been
so closoly connected though his re-
lation to us as pastor was not very
long he did what ho could to pre-
sent tho dignity and maintain tho
iisofulne8s of especially the deacon
board. During special councils with
the brethron he would say '-Brethren
you hold ' great positions and
you as deacons and mo as pastor
must know each other in order to
make good." His last gospel ser-
mon delivered this side of tho mys-
tic river was on this rostrum.
Though very weak and feeblo physi-
cally on tho night of March 28th
he in a most profound manner dis-
cussed the assurance of God's bless-
inirs to Abraham and with Holy
Ghost power admonished each of his
hearers to go and ho a blessing. Wo
pay to this our departed heroic
o-yr'ov the homage of our grief and
the tribute of our tears. While he
goes to rest undisturbed beneath tho
serene and tranquil stars until the
resurrection day. Therefore bo it
Resoled v that we tenderly and
meekly condole with the devoted
widdow and family at lare of gour
departed pastor in the hour of be-
reavement and commend them to
the king of the universe who doeth
all things well and has taken him
to the city where the blood' and
(ears of his friends have been trans-
formed Into praise In that homo

gllttoring crowns for conquerors
Resolved that in the death of our
much esteemed father in the gospel
the Bnpf'st church has lost a de-
voted and faithful Christian the race
one of Its most loyal farsighted
and judicious loaders.
