Things To vf
By JAMES D. TAYLOR
Rev. A. J. Manning
My readers in Martin county and
North Carolina will not learn any
thing new in these Thoughts about
the man of whom we now write.
Probably those in other sections will.
On the 9th of December 1869, Asa
J. Manning was born. 1 am sure his
proud mother did not know at the
time her son would become one of the
most beloved men in his community.
Although I am, and have been for
many years, far away from the State
in which he did such noble work, I
have throughifut the years remember
ed this good man, for it was through
him and my mother that I first learn
ed about Jesus. He was the first man
I ever heard preach, or at least the
first I remember. I shall never for
get those good talks at the Macedonia
and .Sweet Home churches. God alone
knows how many boys he led from
the paths of "pistol toting" and "■boot
legging" to' the foad that >-> ads to
thingy worthwhile. Whet. 1 was just a
lad, living in the backwoods of North
Carolina, churches and schools were
poor and far between. Yet this good
man came to us at his own expense
and told us about the country beyond
t>nd the land above. Long before I
saw a railroad or city I learned to
love this man of God.
Without thought for financial re
ward, this man for more than 35
years gave his time and money to
those w'no needed it most. On Sunday
July 10, he passed on to a more beau
tiful land. Financially, lie died a poor
man. Hut how wealthy he is today!
In the passing of Rev. Manning,
that section of the State in which he
lived, has lost a friend.. But only his
l.ody diet). His spirit lives on. For
many years to come bis influence will
be felt. When this generation has
passed away, those of another will
tell their children about the good man
of God who, like Paul, went to the
toy way places to tell th; unlearnud
about the lowly Jesus.
