THANKSGIVING AT TODD'S ASYLUM

"Eph Todd!" gasped Fisherman Jones, "this is the whoppingest old bass I ever hooked on to yet. Beeswax, how he does pull!" And with the words Fisherman Jones went backward over the log, waving the pole and a pair of stiff legs in the air. The turkey had suddenly slackened the line.
" Give him the butt! Give him the butt!" roared Eph, rushing up. Even where he lay, the fisherman blood in Fisherman Jones responded to this stirring appeal, and as the rod bent in a tense half circle, a race began such as no elderly fisherman was ever the center of before.
Round and round went Miltiades, with the white grub in his crop, and the line above it gripped tightly in his strong beak; and round and round went Eph Todd, his out stretched arms waving like the turkey's wings, and his big boots denting the soft pasture turf with the vigor of his gallop. In the center Fisherman Jones, too nearsighted to see what he had hooked, had risen on one knee, and revolved with the bird, his soul wrapped in one idea-to keep the butt of his rod aimed at the whirling game.
" Hang to him! Reel him in! We'll get him!" shouted Eph; and, with the word, he caught his toe and vanished into the depths of the prickly bush, just as the inventor came over the hill. It would be very interesting to know what scheme the inventor would have put in motion for the capture of Miltiades, but just then he stepped into one of his own extraordinary traps, set for the turkey, of course, and, with one foot held fast, began to flounder about with cries of rage and dismay.
This brought Fph's head above the fringe of bush again, and now he beheld a wonderful sight. Fisherman Jones was again on his feet, staring in wild surprise at Miltiades, whom he sighted for the first time, within ten feet of him. There
