Hendy with His Jack-Knife.
jrj [St. Loul, Republican. I » One ofttfe most eccentrio characters in tsouri—if not iv the entire Mississippi lley—is William Yohe, of Kirkwood. ■. is better known as "Bill the Whit t." Bill claims to be the champion Ittler in the world. With an ordinary i-knife he baa demonstrated his ability make almost anything a carpenter, a jinet-maker, or wood-carver cau make iit a full set of edged tools. He occu i man old church in Kirkwood, which f i has filled almost complely with curi /.sities of a novel as well as useful charac- Jeer with the aid of his trusty bone-han / died knife. The spectators wbo take the f trouble to Tt.it this museum will find the collection as Interesting as the pic tures of a famous art gallery. A short time ago Bill made the announcement that he would throw the church doors ripen on * a certain day iv order Stat those who desired to see bis contri vances might gratify their curiosity. After that date no person would be ad mitted, as he proposed to begin the greatest undertaking of his life, vis., the construction of a great automatic concern, that would surpass anything of Ihe kind tbe world had ever seen. The population of Kirkwood. with scarcely an exception, accepted Bill's invitation, Snd all day during bis reception th. ♦Lurch was filled weth people. Ever Such that eventful day the people of Kirkwood have looked upon Bill as th. eighth wonder of the world. A Repub lican reporter visited Kirkwood yeater. day and had a very pleasant interview with "Bill." Bill waa sitting on a bench with a section of a cigar-box on die hand and his favorite bone-handled knife hi tbe other, whittling away aa though the destiny of the world de pended npon his ability to complete bia work. The blade of tho knife he used was about an inch long and tapered all the way from the hilt to the point. "Well. Bill,"said the reporter, "thay ssy you are the champion whittter of the world." "Yea, and I am willing to whittle any thing against any man living. There ia only oue other whittler ou the face of the earth who can ever spproach my work, and that person is Monkey John, of Chicago. Monkey Jobu would cot whittle against me, for he and I have whittled together and he knows what 1 can do. 1 was bora in St. Louis, on Morgan street, in the building occupied years ago by the old Mound CHy Bakery. When in my teens I be came the apprentice of a millwright, but before my time waa out, at the beginning of the war, I ran away and joined the Union army as a member of Capt. O. W. 'enu's company. While aerv.ng as s Lldier I had one of my toes of my right >oot shot off, aad conld haw had a tension had I aeen fit to apply for one. However, I had a tittle pride that prompted roe to vow that I would never call upon Unole Sam for aapistanoe as long as 1 could use a knife and obtain • t livelihood by whittling. It may appear strange to you, but It ia true neverthe less, that I never knew I had any extra- I ordinary gift for whittling until I had reached my twenty-third year. Then I tad« a toy house for my sister, which aa so universally admired that I de termined to manufacture other ouriosi tiet. The first piece of importance I whittled waj a complete model of the Castle Bingen-on-th.-Rhine. Thi< piece was finished in 1873, and contained 580 windows. It is now owned by a gentle fnau residing in Clay county. The next piece waa the model of the steamship Bristol, copied from an engraving on a hand-bill. "I defy any artist fo eclipse my work with either a pencil or brush. An artist may draw a ptoture as perf«<jfcr as he pessiMy oan and hand it to meTo repro duce in wood, and I will improve on th. picture. Some think because they can make a wooden chain with a knife they axe great whittle™. There is do trick bj making a simple chain, aa the man who can make one link can make forty. Scrolling is by far Ihemostdiffiouit work a man can do with a knife 1 can carve perfectly a leaf or an animal. With a simple pocket-knife I have msde over 300 model*, which occupy plaoee in the Patent Office. ... "Abont a year ago I msde the modi i af a steamship lor parties in Europe. They were so well pleased with it that Vhey paid me »850 for my work. This noilelwaa run by steam and conld travel through the water at the rateSf sixteen Tiiles an boar. My aptitude for whit ling is as natural to me as an ear for nnsic is to some other m.n. After • piece of work is finished I often look at t with astonishment and wonder how I Iver succeeded in making it so complete n every detail. I cannot draw, and know vsxt to nothing about mathematics, yet iy proportions in every pieoe of work I ■ lake are slways remarkably oorrect. 1 then I look at a piotnre which I in \ nd to represent in wood I unconscions l measore its proportions with the eye. ■ will wager my life almost that I oan Jaittleout any aotomatio contrivance gver invented in the space of a year, f fntil thia year I was not aware tu.t § anything more than a living could be f made by a whittler, but now I enlcrtain f s different opinion. The most I ever made on a piece prior to this year was $20, which was cleared on a raffle. in two weeks I can complete in every detail the model of any ship ever built, and I I will construct any kind of a machine aver Invented and make it run lo an ! eight ounce bottle. All this sounds very strage to yon, yet every word of it is true." . j Th. latest thing in clocks comes from Russia. It ia a little timepiece abont eight inches high, on a base five inches in diameter, and covered with a glass globe. All the works ar. plainly ex Sosed. The pe.dnlum is a solid brass wheel supported at the center or hob by a slender wire. It does not swing, but : revolve, from right to left amd left to [right. Being. 400-day clock, tt. wind ing of it is a small stem. It will not vary Hva minutes in rnnning 400 days. No t«mp««* ur * »nVcts it.
