He Tells of Usual and Un
usual Uses to Which
Wood Is Put.
TJCLE JOB the Btory Teller
at whittling:. When TJnola
Joe whittled he always made
something, Jim, John and
Jennie atood by, trying to figure out
.what he waa making.
"What ta it to be?" naked Jim, the
oldest of the onlooklng group ot
"Something I used to make when
I waa a boy," anawered Unole Joe.
"Yes, but It's ao small," aaid John.
"You're making it out of matohea."
"Yes, and X'va almost finished,"
rSBOBds4 nncla. "Get me the smal
lest ala you caa find and I'll show
1 you what it is." Jennie hurried for
ttie pin, and after a little careful
putting together of things, Unole Joe
held up before the .children tho tin
niest kind of a windmill spinning
rapidly around. "This is for little
Jennie," he said.
"Tell us a story," pleaded John,
about whea you were a llttlo boy."
"No; keep oa whittling; make mo
aoanethlag," requested Jim.
"Well, got a good peach stone and
a aloe, erea pleoe of pine, and I'll
see what X can do," he answered.
And. this a
TJmqU Joe'i Story About Wood.

versation with tho proprietor. As
grandfather talked ho whittled, and,
though I was too young then f re
member what he talked about I 8tD
remember what ho whittled. And M
never will forget my chagrin whon
he passed the dlfforent things around
to us boys. For Jim he had made
a threo-bladed knife of wood, tl
blades of which would open and shut
with a snap like a spring-back steel
one. John got a two-bladed one.
But when it came my turn I only re
ceived a blunt edgy, straight baby
knife, whittled all out of one piece.
And, althout&i I was only a little bit
of r tot, I will never forget how
angry I waa at the time, nor how
greafy I longed to arrive at the
three-bladed knlfo age.
"Did you ever stop to think," con
tinued Uncle Joe, "to how many
uses wood Is put? One of Its most
ancient and unusual uses was its em
ployment in 'the making of mouth
plates for the insertion of brass false
teeth, as has been discovered by ex
amination of Egyptian mummies.
"In the ordinary walks of llfo,
everywhere we go, we are constant
ly surrounded by or In contact with
wood. Take tho averago man thow
much wood does he carry on his per
son? In the first place he may have
cork nose-rests to his eyeglasses; his
pipe may also be of wood; toothpicks
and matches, the same. Hio knife
handle, lead pencil, shoe pegs and
cane are of like material. And that
doesn't Include hla newspaper, nor
tho buttons on his coat and vest.
