THANKSGIVING AT TODD'S ASYLUM

But now Aunt Tildy had the floor, with her faded face all alight.
" Eph Todd," she said, "you needn't look so flusterated. It's nothing more than you deserve and not half so much either. Aren't you the kindest man yourself that ever lived?

The man stopped, and well he might, for Eph was dancing wildly about the two, and hustling them into the house.
