In 1896 there was one graduate
Jesse Humphries. He did graduate
work in the University of Chicago.
Mr. Humphries was another one of
those early graduates who did credit
to the college.
Howard Payne College did a good
type of work during even its first
years. A number of Its graduates
received credit for their A. B. de-
gree in Universities of the East.
On March 1 1896 Dr. Robnett re
signed as president of Howard Payne
College and accepted the pastorate of
the Washington Ave. Baptist Church
Dallas Texas. He remained as pas-

which occurred June 23 1898.
With the going of Dr. Robnett the
college suffered a tremendous loss
Dr. Robnett was one of the greatest
chaiacteis ever to appear on the stage
of Teas Baptist History.
Ho was an eloquent preacher and
an able writer.
His life and character were above

given him a pencil and paper. Upon
the paper ho wrote: "This is my dying
testimony foi On 1st my Savior in
giatltudc for His Gracious Word."
Thn functal services were held in
the Washington Ave. Baptist Church
of Dallas Texas. D. George W.
Truitt preached the sermon. In com-

citizens of Brownwood the body was
shipped to Brownwood where thou-
sands of friends paid tribute to the
passing of preacher patriot and
His body was laid to rest on the
campus of Howard Payne College in
front of the Administration building
where It remained until the death of
his wife when it was removed and
buried with Mrs. Robnett in Green-
