THANKSGIVING AT TODD'S ASYLUM

"She thays you c-c-can thend the platter home tomorrow," stammered the boy, and stammering himself out, he ran into another. The other held high a big dish of plum pudding. Again the inventor made signs to Eph.
"Our folks wanted you to try this plum pudding," said the newcomer. "They made an extra one, and the cousins we expected didn't come, so we can spare it just as well as not."
It seemed as if Eph hesitated a moment, and the in ventor's face became a panorama. Then Eph took the boy by the hand, and there was an odd shake in his voice as he said: "I'm greatly obliged to you. We all are. Something happened to our plum pudding, -and we didn't have any. Tell your ma we send our thanks."
There was a sound of voices in the hallway, and two young girls entered, each laden with a basket.
" Oh, Mr. Todd," they both said at once, "we couldn't wait to knock. We want you to try some of our Thanksgiving. It was mother's birthday, and we cooked extra for that, and we've got so much we can't get all ours on the table. She'll feel hurt if you don't."
Somehow Eph couldn't say a word, but there was nothing the matter with the inventor. His speech of delighted acceptance was such a good one that before he was half done the girls had loaded the table with good things, and with smiles and nods and "good-byes," slipped out as rapidly and as gayly as they had come in. It was like a gust of wind from a summer garden.
The table, a moment ago bare, fairly sagged and steamed with offerings of Thanksgiving. Somehow the steam got into Eph's eyes and made them wet, till all he could do was to say, "There goes my last chance at a bread-and-milk Thanksgiving."
