But not alone to sale and barter is the kinnea deToted. Every evening all available space fa cleared, and for hours the young peb^e revel in pictur-esque dances. No prettier scene can be witnessed than the comely and healthv-looking viilaj^ ina'dens, with their bright kirtles and jaunty bodices, covered with spangleaand co'ms, tripping merrily inlieel-and-toe meaaures with young men in red knee-breeches, TelTct jvafatcoats, and peaked hats.
