Those who knew him best, indeed, felt that he had played only a preliminary hand and, finding it weak, had taken up the deck for a stronger deal. Seth Craddock stood with his back to the station platform, hands bound behind him, his authority gone.

"Not mind, sir, being dragged before the criminal tribunals of your country, and being punished as a felon, or rather as a misdemeanour, for an outrage committed on a public platform! Not mind it! What do you mean, sir?" "I mean, that I don't think the magistrate would say very much about it, sir. And I don't think Mr Crosbie would come forward." "But Mr Crosbie must come forward, young man.

They gathered up their belongings and stood ready to get off the car in which they had been nearly a whole day. Clearwell was quite a large place, and the station, where the two different railroad trains came in, was a big one. There was quite a crowd getting off the train on which the Bunkers had ridden, and more of a crowd on the platform.

The train stopped, and he stood on the grey gravel platform like a man in a dream. It seemed half a century since he last waited there with corded wooden boxes, and got into the train for Strassbourg and home after the two years' exile. Time dropped from him like an old garment and he felt a boy again.

The conductor of the train was shouting to him, and two men shoved him toward the platform.

The average specimens of this produce about eighty per cent. of pure metal, even by the coarse native process of smelting. The operations are as follows: Having procured the desired amount of ore, it is rendered as small as possible by pounding with a hammer. A platform is then built of clay, about six feet in length by three feet in height and width.

In addition to the sheets of basalt, numerous crater-cones rise from the basaltic platform at a level of 5000 feet above the sea, and two volcanic mountains, rising far to the west of the principal range, called respectively Harrât Jeheyma and H. Rodwa, almost overlook the coast of the Red Sea.

This was Ethelyn's idea of Clifton; and when, at four o'clock, on a bright June afternoon, the heavily laden train stopped before the little brown station, and "Clifton" was shouted in her ears, she looked out with a bewildered kind of feeling upon the crowd of gayly dressed people congregated upon the platform.

I had the pleasure myself to witness those unforgettable scenes, and to notice The General's own astonishment at the universal interest of the people. In each city he found the railway station decorated. A platform was erected, generally in some public space, whence he could address the multitudes who came out to hear him.
