And "Peggy" herself, a tall, slight girl, of s'Lxt' en or seventeen, in a mad? der-red calico dress, an J a drooping head nil covered with jet-black rings of earling hair, stoDil before tho ponderous elder, as a Circassian slave might have stooda bcfo:opossiblepurchaser.in old? en time. "Seems like a n"cc girl enough," sri id tho elder. "Oh, yes!" said Mrs. Mo nf ac ute, a little gray haired lad}', with a black silk dress and old-fashioned garnet earrings. "Peggy's a good girl.
