THANKSGIVING AT TODD'S ASYLUM

was no pressure on the reel, and Miltiades was swallowing the line in big gulps, evidently determined to have not only the white grub, but all that went with it.
Fisherman Jones's cry of dismay was almost as bitter as that of the inventor, who still writhed in his own trap.
" Oh, Eph ! Eph !" he whimpered, "he's eating up my tackle ! He's eating up my tackle!"
" Never mind!" shouted Eph. "Don't be afraid! I reckon he'll stop when he gets to the pole!"
Eph scrambled out of his bush, and, taking up the chase once more, soon brought it to an end: for Fisherman Jones, his nerve completely gone, could only stand and mumble sadly to himself, "He's eating up my tackle ! He's eating up my tackle!" and the line, wrapping about his motionless form, led Eph and the turkey in a brief circle which brought the three together.
It was not until the turkey was beheaded that Eph remembered the inventor and hastened to his rescue. He was still in the trap, but he was quite content, for he was figuring out a plan for release from the same, something which should hold the captive so long and then let him go, in the interests of humanity. He found the trap from the captive's point of view very interesting and instructive.
The stubbornness of Miltiades was further shown by the difficulty Eph and Fisherman Jones had in separating him from his feathers that evening; and Aunt Tildy was so interested in the plan of the inventor to raise featherless turkeys that she forgot the yeast cake she had put to soak until it had been boiling merrily for some time. Everything seemed to go wrong-end-to, and they all sat up so late that Mrs. Simpkins, across the way, observed that either someone was dead over at Todd's, or else they were having aa family party; and in a certain sense she was right both ways.
