Frldn April 3u and died Wednesday
evening. May .". Mr. Smith camo to
Bakersfleld in the fa'! of 1016. In the
nearly four years nf scrvico here he
won the rc-speet. admiration and love
of the entire community. Dignified anu
grave, ho first Impressed ono as a man
of firm and serious purpose. A close
icqualnta.nce illd not lessen hla Im
pression, but levealed such a kindly
and tolerant spirit, such a wise nnd
friendly understanding of those, who
held different views, that tho quiet
determination and strong convictions
seemed ground for confidence rather
than for opposition, However ardent
ly he strove to accomplish his pur
poses, nobody ever suspected Mr. Smith
of blng prompted by motives of per
sonal gain or triumph. In conversation
tin. culture and refinement of a
tics. Tho academy had In him a warm
aster of tho boy scouts, who
pon him as one whoso advlco
ays good to follow. Above all.
and In nil, he was tho trup pastor of
his people. He sorved them In order
that he might lead them to his Heaven
ly Fnthor, whom ho served first of all.
Hlssermons wero never planned for
d snlay of learn ng. nor to ontertn n
but with the single purpose of Insplr-
mg iruo jneiy ana reverence. And a
steady growth In attendance at both
churVi and Sunday school services
proved the valuo of his work. He has
gone to his Reward, but with us he
hOH left tho record of a man's work
