Hill Dweller Makes Unusual Clock
Reposing in the home of a nephew, Ralph Cason, it is the center of awe and attraction to people from all walks of life. many of whom come from miles away for the rare privilege of inspecting it first hand.
Today the unusual clock not only tells the time accurately but it also designates the days and months and certain phenomena of the solar system.
According to the old timer's nephew the only tool the hill dweller had was a jack-knife, which he used only in the fashioning of the clock case. Beyond this, he swears that his uncle was illiterate, knew not a fraction from a unit, had never had any horological experience and was bereft of any other knowledge, except for raising a large family, and "plumb lucky with tools and other fiddly diddlin' tools."
The nephew has turned down some highly lucrative offers for the novel clock, the latest of which was from the Ford Museum-who pays just about the highest price of any museum in the country.
He hopes to keep the clock until his death, then what his kinfolk decide to do with it - well, "that's their gosh-dern business!"
