An Ingenious Boy

We were lately shown a curiosity in the shape of a sewing machine

entirely of wood. It was whittled out of ordinary pine with an ordinary

jack-knife by an ordinary boy--no, not an ordinary boy; it was the

handiwork of a deaf and dumb boy who resides at Massachusetts. A machine

was left at the house of the boy by an agent, and the lad, with

considerable ingenuity, made a counterpart of the machine, and did it

wholly with a jack-knife.
