'REV. W. L. CLIFTON IS DEAD
OLD SOLDIER OF THE CROSS GONE TO REWARD.
For Many Years A Pastor in Hunt County - Tribute By Presiding Elder

Regarding the life and character of Rev. W. L. Clifton, who died at St. Paul's hospital, in Dallas, last Sunday, as the result of an operation for gall stone, Presiding Elder Mood pays the following tribute:

Brother Clifton has been translated: The news of the death of his veteran of the Cross will be heard with sorrow in many hearts throughout the county, but with the assurance that his death is but his triumph. Rev. W. L. Clifton was born in De Kalb county, Ga., April 26, 1836. When he was two years of age his parents moved from Georgia settling in Northeast Alabama, where he grew to manhood on the farm.

He was converted and joined the Methodist Episcopal Church South in August 1855. He was soon after made class leader and Steward in his church, in which capacity he served with fidelity until he entered the ministry.

He was licensed to preach May 6th 1857 and admitted on trial into the Alabama Conference in 1860. During the war he was Chaplain in the Confederate army and was in labors abundant and always spoke with pleasure of the success attending his labors with the soldiers.

He was ordained deacon by Bishop W. W. Wightman in 1866 and ordained elder by the same bishop in 1867. He labored for a number of years in the Alabama and Montgomery Conferences with equal fidelity and success on Missions, Circuits, Stations, or Districts.

In 1883 he was transferred to the North Texas Conference, where he lived, labored and was loved and honored and from which body he was called home.

He was married January 10, 1866 to Miss Laura Bowers and to this union 7 children, 5 of whom, with his faithful wife, live to mourn his departure. Baptized in infancy, his whole life was lived in the Methodist church and no man loved his church more devotedly or served it more loyally. Just a short time before his death he said to one of his fellow preachers: "I am glad to have you with me but if you have work that must be done, go on and attend to it; the work of the church is of more importance than sitting with a sick preacher."

Brother Clifton was strong in body, mind, intellect and character. These traits always made him a man to be trusted and a wise counsellor. He represented his church in many of its high places and was delegate to the general Conference which met at Memphis in 1894.

In the pulpit he was strong, thoughtful and spiritual. No man could sit under his ministry without recognizing his unusual insight into the things of God as well as the needs and peculiariteis of human nature. From the pulpit where he preached there came no uncertain mind. After his retirement from the active ministry he was ever a willing, faithful and wise counsellor to his younger brethren and sympathetic and appreciative listener to those who ministered to him. The writer feels a personal loss in his going away for his counsel and sympathy have been invaluable.

Brother Clifton took a deep and keen interest in the affairs of State and Nation and on many occasions his wise counsel has prevented rash and hasty steps.

Funeral services were conducted in the Methodist church in Commerce, where he had lived for several years past, on Monday, Marth 13th, 3 o'clock p.m. The sorrowing congregation which taxed the capacity of the church bore testimony to the esteem in which he was held. His pastor, Rev. J. L. Pierce, preached, being assisted in the services by Revs. O. S. Thomas, R. C. Hicks, F. O. Miller and J. M. Peterson and a number of others of his brethren of the ministry present. The ex-Confederates attended in a body and at the conclusion of the services at the church the Masons, of which Brother Clifton was a member, took charge and interred his body with public honors.

A man of positive and pronounced convictions, as was Rev. W. L. Clifton, will always have whose who differ with him sharply, and it was so with him, but of all those who differed with him none could call in question the purity of his motive or the sincerity of his character.

He died as he had lived, without fear, as he stated a few hours before his death, "The future had been attended to years ago," and he was ready to answer the summons.

Soldier of Christ, well done!
Praise be thy new employ;
And with eternal ages run,
Rest in thy Master's joy.'
