Tho numml wntch nieotliigof tho iiioni-
bora of tho Afilcan Uiiptlst church nt
Timbuctoo, N. J., u your or two ngo was
in many respects n novel ono.
For ninny years tho tmnlo residents of
tho little settlement in tho woods near
Burlington havo boon In tho hublt of
holding n watch mooting on Now Year's
ovo. Thcso meetings tiro always well
attended by old and young, and linvo
often developed a gient levival of re
ligion in that section.
A your ago the watch meeting was a
failure because the pieachur's watch
stopped nl half post 11 o'clock, and tho
fact win nol uibcoxoicd until daylight,
To prevent n recui rence of that niistnko
it w.is decide 1 last enr to have u big
eight day clock, owned by "King" Lowis
Armstrong, who litis Ion, onjoyod tho
honor of ruling tho dustmies of Tinibuo
too, lopaiiod in pioper shape and taken
to tho church to mark tho p.is'-ago of
time. This wni dona, nnd Iho clock was
put in the chmeh just back of tho pul
pit wliei a o very ono could too it. And,
to keep tho clock in time, Elder Joidun
and Elder Congo weio instructed to
have their watches wound up and sot
bj raihojd timo to avoid ivuy possibility
of a mistake. Thi3 they agreed to do.
Promptly at 8 o'clock the hei vices be
gan and the church was tilled. "King"
Lewis Amih long tat in tho pulpit with
Preacher Qutinn, nnd occasionally de
voted a fow minutes to keeping tho stovo
"Dh yer watch meeting," said Preach
er Quann, "will begin wid a liyrnu,
'l'mo goin' over Jerding by and by.'
You all knows do time; hit's bin sung
yer a good many years and hit means
jiu' as much now as hit over did. And
when you am a singin' it, brethoriug,
doan forgit to think what do words
mean. Do tune ulouo won't save yer
bonis. Dar am plonty of good bingers
dat ain't got no moro 'ligion than u
skunk. Smgin' am liko prayin'. You
has got to mean do words j ou is usin' or
you ain't no good."
Tho choir, which was Btationcd just
back of tho stove, thereupon raised tho
tune. After two or throo verses had
been sung tho'entiro congregation began
to enter into tho spirit of tho occasion,
swaying their bodies to and fro in timo
with the music and keeping a poculiar
sort of double timo with their feet on
tho floor. As the verses were exhausted
the preacher would yell, "Swing do tuno
ng'in! swing her ag'inl" This always
had the desired effect. Finally thoy be
came weary and a halt was ordered.
"King" Lewis Armstrong next said a
fow words, in which ho strongly adviBcd
tho young men of Timbuctoo to change
their ways beforo it was too late.
"Dar ain't no bettor timo 'n now," he
said. "Dis piesent time you orter quit
yer ornery ways, forsako do exampul of
do wicked Herod and got into do ark of
glory, wot am lighted wid electric light
and full of groceries for do winter. Wo
am jes' about gcttin' into another year,
and nil of ua orter to make up our mines
to do better. Git away irom do bins dat
has Kiveied yon up, and if you die next
year you will bo comfortabul in Aber
ham's buzzum. What l'mo tellin' you is
facte. 'Taint no guei.3 work. Ef you
doan beliovo it look at dat prodigal son
what de good book tolls us about.
"Dar was a mun dat was mitey woll
fixed. lie had a good job on his fod
der's fium, had a boss and wagon to uso
whenever ho wanted it and no Sunday
uiilkin' to do. Dat his heart wasn't sat
isfied. He, thought do old man wasn't
farniin' de place right. He 'lowed ho
could do a heap hotter a wukkin for his
self , cos do olo man was behind de times.
Do proderig.il he had been re.idin' do
'tiscments in do papers 'bout men want
ed to tako big jobs and nuthin' much to
do. So ho bays: 'Guess I'll quit, olo
man. Gimnio what's coinin' to mo, an'
I'll try my luck sonimer else.' Do
old man tnk him at his woid, guv
him tho money and chased him out. But
he didn't mako no'uionoy. Ho jes' fool
it away on farm morgiges ont west and
hoss racin' in tho east till ho blowed it
all in. Den ho come back on do farm,
and do ole man tuk pity on him, furguv
liiin what ho done nnd givo him a homo
ng'in. And dat's what do Lord '11 do for
you ef you doan put it off too long."
Tho effect of this on tho congregation
was marked, nnd soon there were many
sinners on tho Jiiourners' bench. From
that timo until midnight there was sing
ing and prayer until "King" Lewis'
eight day clock struck 9 instead of 12.
This raised a commotion and tho clock
was soundly denounced. "King" Lewis
"Hit doan muke no diffeienco whut
do clock strikes; look at do ban's and
doy'll tell you de time. Fact is, I bleevo
dat nr young willyum, Lord Garrison,
has been inoukoyin' wid do striking
tools in dat clock anyhow."
This was denied by tho accused, and
it was finally decided to refer tho matter
of tho timo to Elders Jordan and Congo.
There was just two minutes difference
in their watches, so a compromise was
struck by Congo betting his watch a
minute fast. Then, as both watches
pointed to tho hour ot 12, tho preachor
blow a long blast on a tin horn, tho wor-
shipers shouted und sung and the now
i year wos started on its way. Now York
