1 I don't mean, literally, to take the next train.
2 The train swayed again, almost flinging Miss Bart into his arms.
3 She held out her hand as the train resumed its level rush, and they stood exchanging a few words in the aisle.
4 Miss Bart went on writing in silence, and her hostess sat following her train of thought with frowning intensity.
5 As she passed Mr. Gryce, the train gave a lurch, and he was aware of a slender hand gripping the back of his chair.
6 She waited till the train had emerged from the tunnel and was racing between the ragged edges of the northern suburbs.
7 Lily's mind had reverted from the intrusive personality of Mr. Rosedale to the train of thought set in motion by Trenor's first words.
8 It seemed wonderful to him that any one should perform with such careless ease the difficult task of making tea in public in a lurching train.
9 One or two persons, in brushing past them, lingered to look; for Miss Bart was a figure to arrest even the suburban traveller rushing to his last train.
10 The first part of her companion's discourse had started an interesting train of thought, which was rudely interrupted by the mention of Mr. Rosedale's name.
11 The stopping of the train at Garrisons would not have distracted her from these thoughts, had she not caught a sudden look of distress in her companion's eye.
12 She broke off, laughing, to explain that she had come up to town from Tuxedo, on her way to the Gus Trenors' at Bellomont, and had missed the three-fifteen train to Rhinebeck.

14 To his wife he no longer counted: he had become extinct when he ceased to fulfil his purpose, and she sat at his side with the provisional air of a traveller who waits for a belated train to start.
15 She knew the symptoms at once, and was not surprised to be hailed by the high notes of a pretty woman, who entered the train accompanied by a maid, a bull-terrier, and a footman staggering under a load of bags and dressing-cases.
16 She had just time to take her seat before the train started; but having arranged herself in her corner with the instinctive feeling for effect which never forsook her, she glanced about in the hope of seeing some other member of the Trenors' party.
17 Mrs. George Dorset, regardless of the mild efforts of a traveller with a carpet-bag, who was doing his best to make room for her by getting out of the train, stood in the middle of the aisle, diffusing about her that general sense of exasperation which a pretty woman on her travels not infrequently creates.
