'This is Peggy, is it?" said Elder
Doubleday, beaming b e n i ?_? n a n t i y

"This is Pegg," said Mrs. Montacute.
And "Peggy" herself, a tall, slight
girl, of s'Lxt' en or seventeen, in a mad?

head nil covered with jet-black rings of
earling hair, stoDil before tho ponderous
elder, as a Circassian slave might have

"Seems like a n"cc girl enough," sri id
"Oh, yes!" said Mrs. Mo nf ac ute, a

"Peggy's a good girl. She's been alielp

'?Mr?. Doubleday want* a girl, to
make herself useful about the home,"
said tho older, dubiously. "Yoong

"Oh, yes, sir!'' said Peggy, in a low,
soft voice, that mado the elder think ol'

To all these queries, Peggy inclined
her lund ftfcscniiiigly, while Mrs. Monta?

was a mnstcrhond to turn off work, for
all she looks so slim."
"I like slim gal?," (-aid tho elder.

lie'll suit Mrs. Doubleday, though Mrs.
'oubicday ain't easy suited, neither.'
So tho elder bundled himself pond

"Mott I gc there ?" she faltered.
"Now I\ ggy, don't bc unreasonable,"
