No, No, Come Up the 'Lightning Rod'

The last part of Huck Finn.

"It ain't no use, it can't be done. What you reckon I better do? Can't you think of no way?"

"Yes," I says, "but I reckon it ain't regular. Come up the stairs, and let on it's a lightning-rod" (560, at least in my version anyway).

This is an exchange between Huck and Tom as the latter tries to find a way to get back to the room because he can't climb the lightning rod. I thought it was odd Tom didn't come up with the solution himself since he's known for that sort of thing. The two of them switched roles; Huck has a clever idea, and Tom has no idea what to do.
