In "Miss Zilphia Gant," these farmers from the countryside around Jefferson tether their teams in the lot beside the Gants' shop when they come into town "on market days" (371). While "hitching or unhitching" their horses and mules, they see Zilphia's "small wan face" behind the bars on the window of her room; they have "heard about" what Mrs. Gant did to her husband, and they discuss the sickly child without any sign of compassion (371).
