THANKSGIVING AT TODD'S ASYLUM

midst of all this the clock stopped. That settled the matter for Aunt Tildy. She neglected the pudding, she forgot the pies, and she let the turkey bake and bake in the overheated oven while she fretted about that clock; and when it was finally set going, after long and careful investigation by Eph, and frantic but successful attempts on the part of Aunt Tildy to keep the inventor from ruining it forever, it was the dinner hour.
Poor Aunt Tildy! That dinner was the crowning sorrow of her life. The vegetables were cooked to rags, the pies were charcoal shells, and the pudding had not been made. As for Miltiades, he was ten times tougher than in life, and Eph's carving knife slipped from his form without making a dent. Aunt Tildy wept at this, and Fisherman Jones and the inventor looked blank enough, but there was no sorrow in the countenance of Eph. He cheered Aunt Tildy, and he cracked jokes that made even Fisherman Jones laugh.
" Why, bless you!" he said, "ever since I was a boy I've been looking for a chance to make a Thanksgiving dinner out of bread and milk. And now I've got it. Why, I wouldn't have missed this for anything!" And there came a knock at the door.
Even Eph looked a trifle blank at this. If it should be company! "Come in!" he called.
The door was pushed aside, and a, big, steaming platter entered. It was upheld by a small boy, who stammered, "My moth-moth-mother thaid she wanted you to try thum of her nith turkey."
" Well, well!" said Eph; "Aunt Tildy has cooked a turkey for us today, and she's a good cook"-Eph did not appear to see the signs the inventor was making to him-"but I've heard that your mother does things well, too. We're greatly obliged." And Eph put the platter on the table.
