THANKSGIVING AT TODD'S ASYLUM

stance in inventing an incubator that worked with wonderful success till the day the chickens were to come out, when it caught fire and burned up, taking with it chickens, barn, house, and furniture, leaving the inventor standing in the field, thinly clad, and with nothing left in the world but another incubator.
With this he had shown up promptly at Todd's, and there he had dwelt thenceforth, using a pretty fair portion of the annuity in further incubator experiments.
With excellent wisdom, for him, Eph had obliged the inventor to keep his machine in a little shed behind the barn, so that when this one burned up, there was time to get the horse and cow out before the barn burned, and the village fire department managed to save the house. Repairing this loss made quite a hole in the annuity, and all the inventor had to show for it was Miltiades. He had put a single turkey's egg in with a previous hatch, and though he had raised nary a chicken, and it was contrary to all rime and reason, the turkey's egg had hatched, and the chick had grown up' to be Miltiades.
Miltiades was a big gobbler now, and had a right to be named Ishmael, for his hand was against all men. He took care of himself, was never shut up or handled, and led a wandering life.
Last of all came Fisherman Jones. He was old now and couldn't see very well, unable to go to the brook or pond to fish, but he still started out daily with the fine new rod and reel which the annuity had bought for him, and would sit out in the sun, joint his rod together, and fish in the dry pasture with perfect contentment.
You would not think Fisherman Jones of much use, but it was he who caught Miltiades and made the Thanksgiving dinner possible.
