What the Jumpers Are Like.
Sueh, In brief. Is a summary of tho
lives of tho Holy Jumpers on their
farm near Weston, a station on tho
Ilendlng railway five miles southwest
of Hound Drunk. Attontlon was nt
traded to them by a report that thoy
aro to Invade Now York in tho man
ner of "Klljah" Dowlo and his 7Jon
lsts. What manner of pcoplo uro theso
who would till Prondwoy with their
crlos and wild dnncos? Tho Question
led, to a visit to Weston.

tho Jumpers' place. Suio ns I'm hero,
tlmr was a Holy Jumper stnndln' a-top
their haystack, bis hands up in tho
air, praying for nil ho was worth.
Guess ho was praying about tho hay.
"Theso Jumpers seem to bo de
cent enough, though," tho farmer add
ed, "only thoy keep mostly to them
selves." Thus primed, tho roportor wnlkod
down tho Delaware nnd Harltau canal
rto tho Holy Jumpors' farm to meet
bne of tho most curious experiences
to bo found nooY Now York.
Ho went to scoff; ho could not stay
to pray. Tho hymns, sophistry, nnd
tho plight of 30 llttlo children woro
too uncanny; his senna of humor too
acute. Yclf ns ho loft, ono question
was burning Jn his mind: Aro thoso

cooperation by tho moro forco of
their religious zeal, whoro others havo
failed, especially In tho famdus Brook

sound predominated over all othors.
Outsldo woro sunshine and tho song
of life tho click of tho windmill,
locusts, nnd bees buzzing In a corn
field, thti chatter of children, tho
sound of hammers as tho workers
raised a big tent for tho camp meet
ing. Instdo was the sound of hymns
pounded out on a hard-toned piano,
persistently, monotonously, endlessly
until tho visitor thought of tho most
maddening in tho list of ancient tor
tures tho stendy drip of water on a
man or woman's lioad.
"You hnvo been very successful
herel" began tho roportor.
"Tho Lord's blcsdlng has been upon
us." Tho "sister" answered absently,
as if In n dream or listening to tho
Home Is Gift of Believer.
"You own this placo?"
"Yes. It was given to us about two
years ago by Mrs. Qarrctsou Mrs. W.
P. Gnrrctson. Sho saw tho truo light
tho light of tho Iord in faith sho and
her son nnd her two daughters. Wo
liavo been hero about a year and a
half. Thoro aro 80 acrcB of land and
HO grown pcoplo, somo of thorn mar
ried but mostly young men and
women, nnd about as many moro chil
dren. They hnvo given tip all their
worldly goods and followed Him."
"You must havo plenty of money,
"Oh, no," with u smile. "Pcoplo with
worldly goods aro not eager to givo
them up and follow tho Lord."
Gradually moro facts camo out after
persistent questioning. Six years ago,
Mrs. Alma White, wlfo of a Methodist
picnchor In Denver, was Inspired to
preach on her own account. Tho con
ference of tho Methodist church
would not make hor a full fledged
minister. Hut "tho Lord blosscd hor
In singing," so sho started her own
Church. Sho calls It tho- Pcntocostnl
Union, hor neighbors, "Tho Pillnr of
Klro"; tho public, tho Holy Jumpers.
Tho "sistor" who was talking called
It "tho holiness movement tho Moth
odiBt church ns it was In tho days of
Wesley, before pcoplo thought only
of worldly things nnd tho ;ntplstcrs
of preaching and prayer for wngo."
Mrs. WJUto Is utill tho head tho
Mrs. Hddy, tho Mrs. Plpor of tho

Holy Jumpors hnvo a Hlblo school and

"You havo harps, too?''
"Wo play on autoharps. Bui mobt

why thoy call us Jumpors."
Theso werq tho words of tho re
ligionist, tho sontlmontallst. On tho
other hand, strangely bald and
strangely compounded of Scilptural
phrase and modern sophistry Is tho
official explanation of tho Jumping
habit. Horo it is:

Are Early at Devotions.
Tho "Jumpers" get up In tho morn
ing at C o'clock nnd pray till break
fast at 0. They pray singly or together,
from then till night, in tho fields, on
tho shady banks of tho neighboring
brook, In tho slieuco of tholr
chambers. They hold services threo
times Sundays, with moro prayers,
songs, Jumping, and "testimonies."
When a missionary sots out to preach,
thoy gnthcr and pray for him. They

Now Yoik "tho purplo woman of

Dowlo did. Their missionaries, how
ever, havo already preached hero as

Brunswick, Somervlllo, Bound Brook,
Whop a person Is HI they pour oil
on his or her body nnd pray that is
all, they say. Tho body is anointed be
cause people mentioned in tho BIblo
did it. Tholr idea of "healing" by
prayer is mndo clear by this enso re
ported by Brldwell. Ho says:
The other day ono of our winters unwit

and another pleco lodged In her throat.
Her condition becaiuo qulto Rerlous, nnd
