During- all the years that it has been our privilege to know him, .there has been n o one whom we admire more for his sterling worth and his ardent Christianity than the subject of this article. The edi tor was raised in .the family of a minister and has through the years known many of the profes sion and has learned to appre ciate the worth and the work of these men but perhaps there, is none whom he has known as harder workers and kindly christ ian in his way of life .and his preaching than Rev.' ,".Jakie" Martin. He has all through these years worked all the week Farm ing as he does through the week, never'does that keep him from his Sabeath work and when it is possible he has worn himself out in the revivals which he has held and all through the mountains his name is known as a kindly Christian man who has tried in his day and time to make the world better. He has not much of this worlds goods and has raised quite a large family, but he has done the . best he could with them all and while doing this has felt the greater call to give to all the secret and course of his life. ' He has been pastor of Free Will Baptist Churches all through these hills and every one knows of his work.. It does one good to see the hearty hand shakes given him and the happy smiles when he comes into a crowds On the train' every place men and women feel the joy of experience of which he has been the agent. It means that the best in their lives is tied up with him as he has many and many a time given them something Jhu) made bright their lives , Mr. Martin is tireless in, his work and does not save himself when the good of the soul is con sidered. We have seen him worn out and almost his life given in the order of the meeting. . He is not a fan tic nor does he condemn others who may not think just as he does but with indly spirit he eares for all men and women and wishes them to have what has meant, so ' much for him. It, is a joy to have known him and to have lived with him and an inspiration for things that, are beter. to hear him. Mr. Martin has 'lived al most 52 years but his life has counted for eternity. . v.
