notice a big barge that was coming
slowly down the river, towing two

a voice ask:
"Hullo, kid! What makes you
work so hard on Thanksgiving day?"
Then he straightened up, to seei the
boat's captain standing near its ptlot
house, and shouting through a gyeat
"I'm waiting for dinner to cook,"
Ben answered in his piping voice.
"C-.n't hear you!" roared the cap
taiu. "Run hom, and get your horn

Ben ran up tie little hill to Mrs.

and they arp to b- found at every
house on the shores of the St. Mary's,

on the land often want to say "Ho-'

all Ben could do to hold the great

the boy shouted again, and this time
the captain heard him.

the captain asked.
"No. bu. we're going to have tur

laughter. Luckily, Ben did not hear.
"What else you going to ihave?",he
