William Ynncy, a pure-blooded negro and ex-slavo from the Sotttli, had lived to past middle nge niid always had "considerable of a struggle for existence, before lie become aware of the fact that he was something of a physical monstrosity and an object of Interest to the medical profession because of that very fact. Me glories in the possession of three distinct voices—one pitched in the barytone key and two minor ones, somvmo and alto. The barytone is his normal or natural voice, while the consonant production of the other two depends on his will and on his manipulation of his vocal chords. When singing eer- lain songs particularly adopted to those three voices of his, they produce together a. harmony of notes, similar, in fact, to the chiming in of a rather well modulated barytone voice and of a soprano and an alto of less volume and power. In other songs, or pas- Prof. AVnilam Ynnoy. sages of them, the three voices which simultaneously emanate from his throat, sound discordant. He has by dint of many years unassisted training, reached that degree of skill in "handling" his assortment of voices that he can sing the solo part of his song in his normal, clear uarytone, reserving the wlerd effect of the three voices in conjunction to the chorus or refrain. Besides this abnormal proficiency in emitting a Job lot of notes, Mr. Yaucy Is likewise' the proud owner of ventrlloquistic powfciM, and the lut- . ter he knows how to use to even better effect than his vocal talents. IN Janitor of a Cliureli. William 1'aucy is now (he janitor of Quinn cliapol, that large and handsome church at the corner of Wabash avenue and Twenty-fourth street, of which Rev. .Tames Townswell Is the pastor, and to whose congregation belongs thousands of the better class of colored people In Chicago, says the Herald. He is eminently respectable and, though his hair is turning gray, lie carries his 50 years with case and a certain amount of buoyancy. Yet William's life has not been so full of sunshine as it might have been. He was born of slave parents down South and at the age of 5 he was sent to the big slave market of those days, to Richmond, where, after spending a few days in Lumpton's jail for safekeeping, he was knocked down £t auction to Samuel Bowman, the price being $300, and was carried off to the Sheuandcah valley, in Uockinghaui county, where his new master had a large plantation. He never spent a day at school, and the little he now knows of reading and \vritlng he taught himself, as he did his singing and ventriloquism, In after life and without a bit of assistance. Ho was - "raised'.' in Virginia, the old state and the West Virginia, and whan a youth lie was sold to another master, Peter Rolla, now at Harrisburg, W.'Va. After the war he drifted to Chicago, in 1867, and has since made this -city his home, living for eight years of the time tit 718 Third avenue, and traveling for a long while in the capacity of assistant to an advertising ugant for a big New York buckwheat firm, all over the country. For a time, too, he sold a cough syrup of his own making, and in this semi-professional capacity ho was honored with the title of "professor." All through, • though, in slavery and since, he has been an honest man, of good repute, has remained a guy and festlre 'bachelor and lias always enjoyed good health. - JJla powers of observation are keen iinrt Ills conversational ability considwul>ln, tho enjoyment of it heightened for tho hearer, perhaps, by Mr. Yancy's undiluted negro d'mlect and his predilection for big words. As to how ho cumo to discover his peculiar gifls, above described, that was as follows: Being then a boy of about 12, and working one day in the corntield on the plantation of Mr. Bowman, lie suddenly discovered, while Hinging some darkey tunes, that ho could 'strike two voices, when lib sang very high." He tried it again and ngaiu anil then ran to his mistress Miss Mary iiowman, who hud always been very kind to him, and told hor of his Ms- •<jovery. "But how can you do it \VH liuin?" she said In um'azomeni. Where upon he starred off with that flnu okl Ilegro hymn: When the roc-ks in tho mountains will all fleeo away, I shall iind a new hiding place there. He sung Jti pitched in a high key of Ills youthful voice, au,d, enough, the vibrations in the roof of his mouth suddenly sounded double, then treble, and, Miss Mary stood and wondered and, said: "Oh, how strung« It SsV" But that was all. No further ado wua of tho quwv facts in this case. whlte-sklnued employers then und gjuco may have looked upon these physical abnormities as u now phaso in negro nature, And William went on through the even tenor of bis ways, Iwelng corn and feulUig cuttje and ut- tenalwg to other chores, reserving his foliar gifts for 'his own private auiuseinejit i in the evening, urn] not much about it. JB»v«wwt»r» iv Processor. it wus ujitU reepmiy \vheu |l'a>p, lehem, \vUoso speoiaUy is tlie '? » profos* sor of physiological diagnosis tft th<5 College of Physicians and Surgeons, noticed the elderly negro on one occasion and was treated to an exhibition of uls special talents, both in singing and In ventriloquism. Dr. Ishatn, In the presence of the writer, made'an examination of Wll- liain Yancy and fotmd the epiglottis in a normal state, the roof of the mouth exceptionally short, but the space Immediately back of it abnormally long and extensive, so that there Is more space for the resonance" of the vocal chords than Is usually the case. He also found the Vocal chords themselves slightly congested and Inflamed— ah abnormal condition which has become permanent, and to whlcbj no doubt, tile frequent, hoarseness of the subject is due. His professional opinion may be summed up In these few words: Abnormal conditions, but Hot phenomenal ones; both Yancy's triple voice and his' ventriloquism owing to the abnormal vibrations of the vocal chord. Before undergoing this exam* ination by Dr. Jra D. Isham Mr. Ynii- cy gave an entertaining exhibition of his gifts. He sang "Hold the Fort,-' "Roll Jordan Roll," "Way Down Upon the Suwanee River, 1 ' "When the Rocks In the Mountains." the tonal scale and some other selections and In them all tho peculiar conditions of his voice, as mentioned above were apparent. Some times the flowing together of the three voices produced a perfect harmony, but more often It did not. A little ven- trlloquistic scene, of Yancy's own Invention and very comical, demonstrated tile man's perfect control over the changeful timbre of his voice. He engaged in an apparent quarrel with some body outside the door who -wished to come in and whom he would not admit. Without any apparent effort on Yancy's part his voice changed oft* and on, from its natural tones to those of a. man and then of a small darkey child outside trying to break In the door. NEW KIND OF UNICYCUE. A Mnclilne AVhlclt flic Inventor- TliiukM Will Run by Its Own Momentum. A novelty in the cycling line which has been attracting considerable attention in New York is a uuicyclc Ingeniously contrived to run along by its momentum after it has been fairly set going by th usual pedalling method, says the Sun. A forward inclination of the rider's body keeps the wheel revolving, rtnd it is said it can be easily stopped by leaning backward. Tho same simple law of gravitation causes it to spin unerringly round any curve toward which the rider leans on either side. The machine 1ms no stear- lug gear and is said to require none beyond the tendency given to its direction by the poise of the rider's body. The motion is generated as in a safety bicycle until the small inner wheels set the outer or traveling wheel spinning. It does the rest and covers so much ground at each revolution as would enable an average rider to compass a mile well under two minutes. The inventor thinks a record of half that time within the possibilities with an expert in the saddle and is at present engaged on improvements which he claims will obtain universal recognition for the contrivance. The inventor's brain has been revolving in cycles since he conceived the idea of a bicycle thirty years ago Some four years ago It occurred to him to electrify 'the wheel world by introducing a unicycle, and the present machine is the result. He completed it a year ago and had it tried with satisfactory results at the Syacuse Armory. As the wheel now stands it measures six feet in diameter and weighs 185 pounds. It costs all told about $000. The more modern types which the inventor is preparing to produce will be built on a much lighter scale. In fact, he thinks ho can get the weight down 1o iifty pounds and reduce the cost of the output to $200. The uui- cycle is not so difficult to mount as appears at lirst glance.

Away diit Gratlot Avehue, far frnm the dill and txtrnioil of the bttslfless centre, there are many atti-active homes. The intersecting streets are wide, clean and shaded by large leaf-covered trees, and the people you meet are typical ol industry, economy and honest toil. There are many pretty' residences, but hone more inviting In its neatness Hnft home-like comfort than that of Mr, I/evl Elsey, the well-known builder and contractor, at 74 Moran street, just off Oratiot. Mr, Elsey is an old resident of Detroit, having moved here about forty years ago. He has erected hundreds of houses in different parts of the citv, and points with pride to such buildings as the Newberry &McMullan and Catnpaw blocks, in which he displayed his ability as a superintendent. "I have seen Detroit grow from a village to a city." he-, observed yesterday in conversation with the writer, "and I don't think there are many towns in America to-day equal to it in point of beauty. 1 know almost everybody in the city, and an incident which recently happened in my life has interested all my friends. "It is now about eight years since I was stricken down with my first case of illness. One eold, blustering day I Was down town and through my natural carelessness at that time 1 permitted myself to get chilled right through. 'When I arrived home that evening I felt a serious pain in my left leg. 1 bathed it that night but by morning 1! found it had grown worse. In fact it was so serious that I sent for my family physician, and he informed me that 1 was suffering from varicose veins. My leg swelled up to double its natural size and the pain increased in volume. The agony was simply awful. 1 was laid up and never left my bed for eight weeks. At times 1 felt as though I would grow frantic with pain. My leg was bandaged and propped up in bed at an agle of 30 degrees in order to keep the blood from flowing to my extremities. "1 had several doctors attending me, but I believe my own judgment helped me better than theirs Afteraseige of two months I could move around, still I was on the siek list and liad to doctor myself for years. I was never really cured and' 'suffered any amount of anguish. '•About two years ago I noticed an article in the Evening News about my friend, Mi 1 .' Northrup, the Woodward avenue merchant, in an interview with him he stated that he had used Dr. Williams' Pills for Pale People and they cured him. I knew him very well, having built his house out Woodward A ve. , and I thought I would follow his sxiggestion. I. must confess I did so with marvelous success. From the time I began to take the Pink Pills I felt myself growing to be u, uew man. They acted on me like a magical stimulant. The pain departed and I soon was as strong and healthy as ever. Before trying the Pink Pills I had used any amount of other medicine without any noticeable benefit. Hut the pills cured me and I was myself ag'ain. "When a person finds himself relieved a.nd enjoying health he is apt to expose himself again to another attack of illness. Some three months ago I stopped taking the Pink Pills, and from the day I did so I noticed a change in my condition. A .short time since I renewed my habit of taking them with the same beneficial results which met me formerly. 1 am again nearly as strong as ever, although I am a man about f)ti years of age. 1 tell you, sir, the Pink Pills are a most wonderful medicine and if they do as well in other cases as they did in mine they are the best in the world. 1 freely recommend them to any sufferer." Dr. Williams' Pink Pills contain, in a condensed form, all the elements necessary to give new life and richness to the blood and restore shattered nerves. They are an untailing specific for such diseases as locomotor ataxia, partial paralysis, St. Vitus' dance, sciatica, neuralgia, rheumatism, nervous heacl- aehe, the after effect of la grippe, palpitation of the heart, pale and , sallow complexions, all forms of weakness either in male or female. Pink Pills are sold by all dealers, or will be sent post paid on receipt of price, (50 cents a box, or six boxes for $3.50 — they arc never sold in bulk or by the 100) by addressing Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Schenectady, N.

"Blow ye the trumpet, blow," was one of the seven hymns written by Charles Wesley for New Year's day. It was first issued in J750. "All hail the power of Jesus' name," was written by Edward Perronet in 1779. All else from the pen of this writer has been forgotten. "Nearer, My God, to Thee," was tho work of Sarah Flower Adams, and first appeared in a volume ..of hymns and anthems published iu 1840 by liev. W. J. Fox. "And are wo yet alive?" is by Charles Wesley. It is the opening hymn used by Methodist conferences the world over, and has been so employed for a hundred years. "Just as I am" first appeared in the "Invalids' Hyinu Book," in 1830. It was the work of Charlotte Elliott. who became an invalid in 1821 and remained such until her death in 187J. "Jesus Lover of My Soul'' was written by Charles Wesley just after an escape from a mob. He took refiig-e in a tool-house attached to a foundry, and wrote the hymn with a piece of lead hammered into a pencil. "Rock of Agos" was written by Top- lady. It was originally entitled "A Living and Dying Prayer for the Holiest Believer in the World." It has been translated into many European languages, BJid everywhere it has been popular. "Hark the herald angels sing," Is the only hymn by Charles Wesley that is included in the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer. It, with five others, was put iu by a printer in 1818, who found six pages vacant in his form, and without asking anybody's permission, filled them with hymns. Nobody knew how they were introduced, and after the printing was done there was no authority for their removal. LIFE'S KALEIDOSCOPE.

According to the story lately circulated in Berlin, the emperor appeared at 6 o'clock one morning most unexpectedly at the barracks of n dragon regiment. The soldier» wore ready for manoeuvres, but the commanding officer had not yet arrived. The emperor waiter half an hour, when the delinquent arrived. His feelings at the eight of his sovereign can better be imagined than described. But the emperor did not say a word. He "assisted at the manoeuvres, made several observations, as usual, and finally left without addressing a word to the officer at fault, who considered himself lost. He went home in despair, expecting from moment to moment to receive the news of his disgrace. With the customary expeditious ways of the emperor, he knew he would not have long to wait. But the afternoon passed, then the evening, and still nothing occurred. He had not dared to leave thehouse, in dread of the events that were to decide his future career. Finally, as t|he evening wore on, he ventured out for a walk. On returning homo he found a little package addressed to him. No letter or message accompanied it.
