Hendy with His Jack-Knife.

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

Jeer with the aid of his trusty bone-han

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

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
"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
"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

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

They were so well pleased with it that
Vhey paid me »850 for my work. This

through the water at the rateSf sixteen

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

vsxt to nothing about mathematics, yet
iy proportions in every pieoe of work I

f fntil thia year I was not aware tu.t
§ anything more than a living could be

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
