There are more things than ]

Perhaps you have talent to ir

improvement of the town. Some
have the talent to lay the plans; f
others can carry the plans into
effect. It was said of one of
our leading men not long ago w
that he was the greatest man i
among us to devise great enter- bi
prises for the benefit of our t,
country, but that he could not
put any of the plans into effect. w
Now, perhaps we have some p
one among us who can blan to st
build up our town. If so, get li
to work and give us the plan, tj
and we will go on the hunt for
some one to put it into effect.

ive seen of a "progressie" is
tat recently given by Life, to
e effect that a progressive is
ie who is farther advanced this

e would say that a progressive
rmer is one who is'
oing better farm

(The following article about
Mr. Taylor, written by Rev. A.
C. Wilkins. appeared in the
Baptist Courier of two weeks
ago. Mr. Taylor has visited his
son in Pickens many times and
was well known here.
We are indebted -to the Bap
tist Courier for the picture here
with shown.-Ed.)
Here is a remarkable picture be
cause of what it represents. See
an aged gentlcman sitting be
fore nine boys, about eight to
ten years old. He is the Sunday
school teacher sitting with the
boys under the trees near Tay
lors Baptist church. The full
class is fourteen. This vener
able in in of God has been teach
ing a similar class at this place
every Sunday for more than
thirty years. He is now in his
his ninetieth year, born June,
1823. What a beautiful, signi
ficant, thrilling sight is he in
the presence of the boys sitting
on a long bench! And this for
nearly a third of a century,
every L-)rd's day when the
weather permits Hundreds of
boys have thus through the
years come under his elevating,
nspiring influence and instruec
tion. From these sonme eight
young men have gone into the
Baptist ministry. The wvriter,
who has been preacingw for the
hurch more thani a year. close
ly associated with Brother Tay
lor, has heard him say of one or
another of these men: "IIe
went from my bench." Yet
one should never imagine there
was any spirit of egotism or
boasting. Not at all, for he is
an earnest, humble, faithful. yet
cheerful, child of God, settingA
before the worli an example of
faith and love worthy of imita
On Sunday, the 29th of Sep
tember, 1912, while confined to
the room unable to go to his
class, the old gentleman sent for
them to come to his room that
e might talk to and pray with
them. As his custom was he
asked them to repeat with him
his word of prayer. At the close
he saw tears in the ey es of some.
Speaking of -it to his pastor he
said:" When I see this. I kno w
something good is going on."
The earlier part of Brother
laylor's life was spent at Chick
Springs. a mile from the village
of Talors. At the age of twen
tv-seven or twenty-eight h e
joined the Baptist church, and

life into religious service.
Throughout his long life he has
been a man of great activity.
equally interested in secular af
fairs, education, and religion.
For years he was half owner
of Ihe Chick Springs hotel; he
owned a nd managed a saw-mill;
gave men employment in cut
ting wood and crossties for the
railroad, especially during the
leisure months; practiced dent
istry for some years, going from
home two weeks at a time; be.
sides he was always interested
in farming. His religious life
was always earnest and con
stant. He was ready to advance
money when a house of worship
was to be built, and he gave lib
er 1ly himself. His interest in
Sunday school work has been
deep. In the sixties and seven
ties he often went to Sunday
school "celebrations," taking a
load of persons in his stage-like
vehicle, sometimes beyond the
county line. His uniform inter
est in public improvements has
been unabated. tRecenty he
gave the right of way through
his land to the Greenville, Spar
tanburg & Anderson Railway
Thus he spent most of his
long, eventful life in useful ways
of various kinds, both privaite
and public. It was he-who gave
name to the station and village
where he lives. He wvas twice
m'arried and is the father of
eiht children. four by each
marriage His second wife died
some y-ears ago, andl one of his
sons and family are making a
(ielihtful home for him. It is
al ways a pleasure to me to meet
him in the hospitable home and'
at the church. I have found
him excellent company, ever
kindly thoughtful and encour
agingly cheerful. I count it a
fortunate thing that I have
known him so well and inti
mately. He is esteemed highly
as a good, useful man by all the
community. May the rich grace
of God be with him to the end.
