Bill Nye Concludes He is not Circula
ted for a Carpenter.
Bill Nye in the Denver Opinion.
In my opinion every professional
man chould keep a chest of carpen
ter's tools in his barn or shop, and
busy himself at odd hours with
them in constructing the varied arti
cles that are always needed about
the house. There is a great deal of
pleasure in feeling your own inde
pendence of other trades, and more
especially of the carpenter. Every
now and then your wife will want a
bracket put up in some corner or
other, and with your new bright saw
and glittering hammer you can put
up one upon which she can hang a
cast iron horse-blanket lambrequin,
with inflexible water lillies sewed in
A man will, if he tries, readily
learn to do a great many nuch little
things, and his wife will brag on
him to other ladies, and they will
make invidious comparisons between
their husbands, who can't do any
thing of that kind whatever, and
you who are "so handy."
Firstly, you buy a set of amateur
carpenter tools. You need not say
that you are an amateur. The deal
er will find that out when you ask
him for an easy-running broad-axe
or a green-gage plumb liift. He
will sell you a set of amateur's tools
that Avill be mabe of old sheet-iron
with bass-wood handles, and the
saws will double up like a piece of
After you have nailed a board on
the fence successfully, you will very
naturally desire to do noinething
much better, more difficult. You
will probably try to erect a parlor
.table or a rustic settee.
I made a very handsome bracket
last week, and I was naturally proud
of it. In fastening it together, if
I hadn't inadvertently nailed it to
the barn floor, I guess I could have
used it very well, but in tearing it
loose from the barn, so that the two
could be used separately, I ruined a
bracket that was intended to serve
as the base, as it were, of a lambre
quin which cost nine dollars, aside
from the time expended on it.
During the month of March I
built an ice-chest for the summer.
It was not handsome, but it was
roomy, and would be very nice for
the season of 1884, I thought. It
worked pretty well through March
and April, but as the weather be
gins to warm up that ice-chest is
about the warmest place around the
house. There is actually a glow of
heat around that ic-chest that I
don't notice elsewhere. I've shown
it to several personal friends. They
seem to think that it is not built
tight enough for an ice-ches. My
brother looked at it yesterday, and
said that his idea of an ice-chest was
that it ought to be tight enough at
least to hold the larger chunks of
ice no that they would not escape
through the pores of the . ice box.
He says ho never built one, but that
it stood to reason that a refrigerator
like that ought to be constructed so
that it would keep the cows out of
it. You don't want to have a re
frigerator that the cattle can get
get through the cracks and cat up
your strawberries on ice, he savs.
A neighbor of mine who once
built a hen resort of laths, and now
wears a thick thumb nail that looks
like a Brazil nut as a memento of
that pullet corral, says my ice-chest
is all right enough, only that is not
suited to this climate. He thinks
t along Behring's strait, during
hoTTil.avs mv Jen ihauf
ork like a charm. And even here,
he thought, if I could keep the fever
out of my chest, there would be less
I have made several other little
articles of vortn this spring to the
construction of which I have con
tributed a good deal of time and
two finger nails. I have also sawed
into ray leg two or three times. The
leg, of course, will get well but the
pantaloons will not. Parties wish
