THANKSGIVING AT TODD'S ASYLUM
WINTHROP PACKARD
THE INMATES OF THE ASYLUM

People said that if it had not been for that annuity Eph Todd would have been at the poor farm himself instead of setting up a rival to it; but there was the annuity, and that was the beginning of Todd's asylum.
No matter who or what you,were, if you were in hard luck, Todd's asylum was open to you. The Number Four district schoolhouse clock was a sample. For thirty years it had smiled from the wall upon successive generations of pupils, until, one day, bowed with years and infirmities, it had ceased to tick. It had been taken gently down, laid out on a desk in state for a day or two, and finally was in funeral procession to the rubbish heap when Eph Todd appeared.
" You're not going to throw that good old clock away?" Eph had asked of the committeeman 'who acted as bearer.
" Guess I'll have to," replied the other. "I've wound it up tight, put 'most a pint of kerosene in it, and shook it till I'm dizzy, and it won't tick a bit. Guess the old clock's done for."
