Well-Known tmptlst Minister.
(Green vii lo Nows.)
Fifty-two years ago, on n moon
shiny night i:i May, David Weston
tliott w?s converted at ti camp-meet
ing in Colloton county, und since
that time nu.* lina been an active min
ister of tho Gospel, establishing a
record for continuous service which
few if any other ministers in this
section can equal,
On ".hi.- Sunday night following his
conversion young lliotl preached lils
ilrst sermon, and since that timo he
has boon pastor of lifty-ono churches.
'I wouty-flve of tho so churches aro
known as town churches, while thc
remainder were "country churches."
At the present Mr. lliott is pastor
or' tim Alice lin pt 1st church and also
ol' Kcoweo, Barker's Crook and Cross
hoads churches. Virtually all of his
charges have been ia Anderson. Pick

churches in Georgia, as well ns a few
groups of churches lu tho lower part
Of tho State.
Mr. lliott, who was born in Collo

ed his Ilrst schooling in tho country
schools of hts native county. He
later graduated from the Colloton
High School and then taught in the
Waltorboro High School.
He attended the Southern Baptist
Theological Seminary, which then
was located in Greenville. Ile loft
tho seminary in I STU. and since that
time he has never returned to school
except lo the school of lifo, which
has. kept him busy preaching, minis
tering lo tho dying and bereaved, of
!'!. tating at marriages, organizing
churches, taking an active purl ill
fraternal organizations, and on ono
occasion launching into the gnuie of
Mr. lliott was a candidate for Ibo
ofilco of state Superintendent ot Kd
ucalion on the' Sheppard ticket In
IS!1-', his candidacy being brought
by ibo conditions existing at that
Hmo, and which arc fresh In Hm
minds of many of thc older inhabit
ants. While he received a nattering
vote-approximatoly34,000 ballots
-he has never again offered for of
ilco, either State or county.
Mr. lliott was roared a Methodist,
and it was at a Methodist camp-meet
ing that he was converted; hut he
united with tho Baptist church. Tho
Hov. George H. Poosor was preach
ing, and tho testimony which so
touched tho lad ns to alter his life's
course was offered by Jamos C. Co
ker, later a foreign missionary.
On tho Sunday night following his
conversion Mr. l-l io Lt preached his
li rs t sermon. Ho doesn't rem cm ber
the date oilier than that iL was ill
.May, IS70, Since thal limo he has
smvod as pastor of thc following
town or city churches: Kour in Eas
loy (Easloy Baptist, Goer Memorial,
Glenwood and Alice), Toccoa, Mar
tin, Pickens, Westminster, Seneca,
Liberty, Central, .Norris, Caleechee,
two at Williamston, two at llonea
Path, Pelzer, Townvlllo, Pendleton,
Wedgefield, Dudley, Holly Hill, Eu
tawville and Simpsonville.
Tho country or rural churches
which Mr. H lott has served as pastor
are: Corinth, Pisgah, Brion, Moun
tain Springs, Fork Shoals, Shady
Grove, Welcome, Dorchester, Eure
ka, Hopewell, Lebanon, Neals Crock,
Parker's Creek, Broadmouth, Little
Uiver, Kooweo, Mt. Bethel, Bethel,
Grahams, Hopslbah, George's Creek,
Corinth Xo. 1, Griffin, Cross Hoads,
Mt. Carmel and Secoua.
Although reared in the lower part
of the State, Mr. Hlott lias formed
on attachment for the Piedmont
which cannot ho broken oven by time.
When a young man he heard of this
section of the State, it being pic
tured by ono of tho mission s?cr?
tai les as "tho coming section of the
Sut io.'' Tlie description marlo such
an impression upon tho yotii g min
ister that he wanted to cast bis lot
in tho Piedmont.
When a student lil tho seminary
at Grocnvillo Mr. Hlott was invited
to preach at Liberty on ono occasion,
and laier was called to accept tho
pastorate of that church. From that
time on lils churches and friends
throughout tho Piedmont havo
grown by leaps and bounds. While
he returned to Holly Hill on ono oc
casion tho old appeal was too strong
and after an absence of about two
years ho returned to mako his homo

Has Baptized Over ??.OOO.
Mr. lliott lins baptized moro than
Huco thousand persons in tho fifty
two years that ho has been a minis
ter. Ho has also officiated at funer
als in moro than eighty burial
grounds. Ilowovor, ho ls unable to
glvo even an estimate of tho number
of funorals ho has conducted. Llko
wiso ho lina kopt no record of the
number of marriages performed.
On ono occasion Mr. Iiiott received
1L'"> members lalo tho church at
Shady (?rovo, In Andorson ounty. Ho
baptized 03 persons on tho last day
of the mooting. Ile received one en
tire family Into tho church, baptiz
ing all of them without any ass.-t
ance. Ho also baptized all the mem
bers Of another family with the ex
ception of one.
On Aug. s, 1876, Mr, Illott was
married to .Miss ?311a IS. Martin, of
tills section. They havo nine chil
dren, as follows: Mrs. John A. Ter
rell, .Mrs. lt. S. Long, Misses Addie
und Marlo ll lott, and live sons-Cary
and Whitsett, Edgar W. and Hairy
and Julian.
Mr. Iliott has taken an active part
ttl the various fraternal organiza
tions to which ho belongs and has
been honored by all of them at vari
ous times. He is chaplain of rho
Ci rand Lodge of South Carolina Ma
sons. He ls also a Past Chancellor of
ibo Knights of Pythias, and i; n
Sovereign Representative of the
Woodmen of tho World.
Pickens county was tho second
((?linty in the State to abolish tho
legalized sale of whiskey, about a
score of years ago, and lt was Mr. !
Iliott who led in this light. Wltilo
Pickens followed only Cherokee in
this respect, the prohibition move
ment has spread until not only all
of the State, but the entire nation,
luis fallen into tho "dry" column.
To converso with Mr. Iliott is to
feel something of his personality, and
one is not left in doubt as to why,
throughout the years ho has been so
successful In dealing with men. A
big heart, a broad smile and a witl
ing hand ever stretched forth to help .
a falling brother, fail to properly ex
press this man. He is all that-and
moro, too.
Newspaper men, accustomed lo
minglo with tho extremes of society '
as well as the middle stratas of hu
manity, .feel the difference in con
versing with a niau of Mr. Hiott's!
personality, hut lind themselves un- ?
able? to convey thc thought that oc
curs to. them.
Asked what was his favorite piece
of verse or prose, Mr. Iliott produced
a slip of paper entitled "Tell linn
Now." The words are so full of the
truth of life, as well as of good and
sound advice, that they are passed
on as being expressive of the kind of I
man this individual is who for more
than half a century has give') his life
and service for others.
Tho little vei'53 follows and makes
a more appropriate close to this story
than anything we CDU.J write -
Toll Him Now.
"If with pleasure you are viewing
Any work a man is doing
If you think somo praise is due
him now,
Don't withhold your approbation
Till thc parson makes oration
And he sleeps with snowy lilies on
his brow;
For no matter how you shout it,
He won't really caro about it
Ho won't know how many tear
drops you have shed;
If you think some praise is duo him,
Now's tho time to pass it to him
'For ho cannot read his tonihstone
when he's dead.
More than fame and more than
Is tho comment, warm and sunny;
And tho hearty, warm approval of
a friend;
For lt gives to life a savor,
And it makes you stronger, braver,
And lt glvos you heart and spirit
to tho end.
If he earns your praise, bestow it;
If you like him, let him know it
Let tho word of true encourage
ment bo said;
Do not wait till life If over.
And he's underneath the ?over,
For he cannot read his tombstone
when ho's dead."

danger of having the soil too rich for
rhubarb. The hills should be three !

than one row ls planted.
This wonderful staple of the family
garden can generally be planted ulong
tile fence where it will be out of the
way of cultivation.
Thc thick leaf stems are the part
used, and none should be pulled from
the plants the first year after seeding,
but a large supply will be available
the second season, and the hills will,
as a rule, continue to produce satis
factory crops of stems for several
years, after which they should be di
vided and reset.
Rhubarb should rccelvo thc same

should never be allowed to ripen and
