The following is told by Boniface D
Witt of the Biggs House:
"Dr. Talmage was preaching at Belle
ville, K. J., some years ago, and cm
week he made np his mind to go into the
pulpit the next Sunday without notes at
memoranda of what he was going to say.
He memorized his sermon and believed
he had it completely at his tongue's end.
So Sunday night he went to the church
pretty well fortined with confidence.
"In those days in that section of Jer
sey churches and hotels and many pri
vate residences were equipped with pri
vate gas machines, and the church where
Talmage was to hold forth had one too.
When he got into the pulpit after con
ducting the preliminary services all
right, he gave out his text Thenbewai
horrified to find that he couldn't think of
a thing to say. He repeated the text a
second time, and yet his ideas failed to
come. He was in agony and began
slowly and impressively to announce his
text a third time. As he reached the
last word and the perspiration of dread
and shame was beginning to start, the
gas went out and plunged the place into
utter darkness. There was no other
means for lighting the edifice, and when
it was announced that the gas machine
had broken down hopelessly Dr. Tal
mage pronounced the benediction, and I
have heard him say that he never did so
before or since with greater fervor or
thankfulness of spirit." Washington
