  • We arrived at St. Paul's on Thursday forenoon and found it to be a stirring city, beautifully situated on the eastern side of the Mississippi. We had several hours of good hard work in getting our caravan in order, purchasing supplies, and making all final arrangements for the long journey that was before us. For beyond this the iron horse had not yet penetrated, and the great surging waves of immigration, which soon after rolled over into those fertile territories, had as yet been only little ripples.
  • As the boys stood ready to defend themselves if attacked, they noticed that the two strangers who had recently arrived at the camp were creeping farther into the tent, at the flap of which they had been sitting. The lads saw weapons in their hands, but saw no evidence that the fellows intended using them. Sandy gave Will a nudge on the shoulder.
  • The end of October witnessed the ratification of this proposal by the Unionists. The action at once consolidated the Premier's position. I doubt if in all political history you can uncover a series of events more paradoxical or perplexing or find a solution arrived at with greater skill and strategy. It was a revelation of Smuts with his ripe statesmanship put to the test, and not found wanting.
  • Forest had called; they would be late, unlike Autumn and Milt, who arrived at four-thirty. They brought fried chicken and side dishes, more than enough for Summer and her family. "If those guys want some, thats fine," Autumn said, licking her fingers. "Theyre not gonna be sitting on the loveseat tonight anyways."
  • It may have been the pinch, but the flush on her cheek grew distinctly brighter. "Don't be ridiculous, Uncle! He's just a boy, a perfectly splendid boy, and glorious in his game, but a mere boy, and--well, you know, I've arrived at the age of discretion."
  • The little, and, at first, scarcely to be perceived caterpillars that follow the appearance of these moths, can absolutely be seen to grow and swell beneath your eyes as they crawl from leaf to leaf. Day by day you can see the vegetation of vast fields becoming thinner and thinner, while the worm, constantly increasing in size, assumes at last an unctuous appearance most disgusting to behold. arrived at maturity, a few hours only are necessary for these modern locusts to eat up all living vegetation that comes in their way. Leaving the localities of their birth, they will move from place to place, spreading a desolation as consuming as fire in their path.

  • "Then, right before the bastards arrived at our alternate camp, my other battalion hit them from above and just tore them up. Remember, those new bombs weigh forty kilos, so those long-distance quads exhausted themselves on the way over. They were in no shape to dogfight. A thousand broke off to drive us off while the rest absorbed losses until they could bomb our camp, which they assumed would drive us off the mountaintop. They destroy our bunkers, but our two battalions harassing them all the way home.

  • She followed Millie into the hall with Benjin in her shadow. True to her word, Millie led them only a short distance before they arrived at another grand entranceway, flanked by a pair of guards who nodded to Millie and immediately allowed them to enter. The apartments within were not much more grand than those provided to Catrin and Benjin, which only served to confirm the honor that had been granted to them.
  • On arriving at the spot where the kill was, an examination of the marks on the bullock showed that it was a panther and not a tiger that had been at work. The place was in sight of the village and on the skirt of a forest. We had a "machan" (platform) in a tree made, and at three o'clock in the afternoon I climbed up with my native shikari or hunter and watched and waited until dark.
  • I arrived at the office and saw that I had a client waiting. I hurried to open the door so that my client wouldnt leave. When I unlocked the door, I entered and awaited for my client to enter.

  • "Almost any day now; in fact, within the week, if everything has gone right. Here is a letter from Johnston to say that the Lurline has arrived at Plymouth, and that a bright look-out is being kept for him. He will telegraph here and to the club in London as soon as the air-ship is sighted. Twenty-four hours will then see us on board the Ariel, or whichever of the ships he comes in."
  • As Arend came up to the horse that had wandered from the camp, the animal had arrived at the edge of an extensive thicket, and was apparently determined upon straying still farther. To avoid being caught or driven back, it rushed in among trees, taking a path or trace made by wild animals.
  • It had been a quiet night, without any sign of patrolling Akorans or wild animals, and Aiden was looking forward to getting some rest once they had arrived at Bracksford, which he roughly guessed they'd arrive at before dusk, assuming they set out within the hour. Given the rigours of the previous day, however, he had his doubts as to whether or not this would actually occur. But it wasn't importantjust the fact they continued to draw breath was enough for now.
  • After eating, Aiden felt a sense of comfort he hadn't felt for weeks. The others must have been experiencing it too, for they all spent the next hour tending to minor chores or relaxing. Before long, one of the guards caught their attention to report that the merchant had arrived at the gates. They gathered up their gear and stepped outside to meet the man.
  • Singular instinct! returned the reporter; "since notwithstanding the storm of rain and wind which was raging during that night, Top arrived at the Chimneys, dry and without a speck of mud!"
  • "Don't worry about us, I'll die before I let anyone else touch Nel," Colt growled, limping into her cell with his longbow, while the young cleric huddled into a fetal position and rocked slowly back and forth. Aiden nodded in reply, and then started walking along the passageway, arriving at the stairwell down after only a few seconds. With the others right behind him, he casually descended, pulling out one of his two remaining scrolls from the scroll case as he went.
  • He had no doubt that Condor had determined to postpone the occasion until they had left the Pireus, at which point they were to call, as his service might be required there to interpret. Once away from the island, he would not be likely to be called upon to translate until they arrived at Constantinople.
  • As we steam north, the weather grows fine, and we begin to have some splendid days and glorious sunsets. But we are all longing eagerly to arrive at our destination.

  • When he arrived at the slip-rails across the end of the track leading from the road to the selection, he saw by the gleam of firelight from the open doorway that some one was in the hut.

  • On arriving at the foot of the fall, Heywood set off at once to a spot from which he could obtain a good view of it, and sat down to sketch, while his companions unloaded the canoe and lifted it out of the water. Then Jasper collected together as much of the baggage as he could carry, and clambered up the bank with it, until he reached the still water at the top of the fall. Here he laid it down and returned for another load. Meanwhile Arrowhead lifted the canoe with great ease, placed it on his shoulders, and bore it to the same place. When all had been carried up, the canoe was launched into the quiet water a few hundred yards above the fall, the baggage was replaced in it, and the travellers were ready to continue their voyage. This whole operation is called making a portage. It took about an hour to make this portage.
  • He arrived at the house in the late afternoon while Mrs. Dick and Beth were engaged together in the dining room, sewing at a quilt. The meeting was therefore a quiet one and Beth escaped any lover like demonstrations he might otherwise have made.
  • Still descending, we arrived at the little town of Caldas de Goyaz--so called because there were three hot springs of water of different temperatures. I visited the three springs. The water tasted slightly of iron, was beautifully clear and quite good to drink. Two springs were found in a depression some 150 ft. lower than the village--viz., at an elevation of 2,450 ft., whereas the village itself was at 2,600 ft. These two springs were only 20 ft. away from a stream of cold water. A short distance from the cold stream was another stream of hot water emerging from the rocks.
  • We arrived at our first rendezvous about four hours after being dropped.
  • At midday they arrived at the lip of a deep chasm, where Bane stopped. Mirra rode up to the edge and looked down, giving a gasp of astonishment and horror. Bones covered the bottom of the gorge, lying in unruly piles, heaped against the rocky sides. The huge bones of dragons lay with human and animal skeletons, the bleached skulls of former adversaries piled together in death. Older bones pushed through the vegetation, grey and crumbling, newer ones gleamed ivory white. A broad swathe down the centre of the chasm had been trampled to grey dust, as whatever creature lurked below traversed to and from its lair. More recent kills lay mouldering, rotten flesh peeling from bones. A few fat crows feasted on them, but they were making slow work of it, and no larger, four-footed scavengers braved the chasm, it seemed.
  • Monday, 10th November, Sullivan Creek. Some of the horses missing this morning. Did not get a start till nine o'clock a.m. Day oppressively hot. Crossed the Finke three times, and arrived at Polly Springs, where there is plenty of water. Camped. Wind, south east.
  • The next journey could have lasted minutes or hours because I was hanging out of the car window like a dog.

The meeting didn't last very long though as upon my entrance I slipped down the stairs and straight into a tray of cakes.
  • "They said he arrives at mid morning, verifies his seal on the customs house door, and then orders it opened. They also said
  • While Obadiah, therefore, and his plump companion, were engaged in conversation, on the strange incidents which had passed, Fathom acted a very expressive pantomime with this fair buxom nymph, who comprehended his meaning with surprising facility, and was at so little pains to conceal the pleasure she took in this kind of intercourse, that several warm squeezes were interchanged between her and her lover, before they arrived at Rochester, where they proposed to dine. It was during this period, he learned from the answers she made to the inquisitive quaker, that her sole dependence was upon a relation, to whom she had a letter, and that she was a perfect stranger in the great city; circumstances on which he soon formed the project of her ruin.
  • It was a very mysterious case. In the month of July a boat arrived at Manilla which carried the crew and one passenger from the brig Vishnu. One of the men, a Malay named Uracao, was in irons, and he was immediately given up to the authorities.
  • HAD arrived at THE ADDRESS SHAA HAD GIVEN ME just in time to see Max and Jurtan Mont entering, after Max had done something crafty to the door. That meant link-up with Shaa was out of the question for the moment; the one person I was least interested in dealing with right then was Maximillian the Vaguely Disreputable. Unless it was Zhardann or Jill, or for that matter Gashanatantra, and lets not forget Joatal Ballista, AKA Fradjikan, which I guess was just another way of saying that I had more trouble than I knew what to do with any direction I turned.
  • When they arrived at the inn, Bane pushed her into a chair and tied her to it with twine. While he was bent over her, she studied his face at close quarters, finding it hard to believe he was human. His white skin was so fine, smooth and matt; his long black hair gleamed like a raven's wing. His good looks belied the tales that those who worshipped the Black Lord were ugly, mutilated and dirty, but then, he was not a worshipper, she surmised. No scent clung to him, and his aura of power made her hair bristle.
  • When he arrived at his office, Mr. Singh was already waiting for him. He sat pensively on a plastic chair in the common area.
  • Upon arriving at Tellsons, Carton informs Mr. Lorry and Jerry Cruncher that Darnay has been arrested again; he overheard Barsad discussing the news in a bar. Carton has a plan to help Darnay, should he be convicted, and he threatens to expose Barsad as an English spy should Barsad fail to cooperate. Carton reveals that he has seen Barsad conversing with Roger Cly, a known English spy. When Barsad counters that Cly is dead and presents the certificate of burial, Cruncher disproves the story by asserting that Clys coffin contained only stones and dirt. Though Cruncher is unwilling to explain how he knows these details, Carton takes him at his word and again threatens to expose Barsad as an enemy of the Republic. Barsad finally gives in and agrees to help Carton with his secret plan.
  • Terry O'Malley was among the disappointed viewers in the main parlor. He was more disappointed than most because he had decided that at twenty-five he had nothing to lose and everything to gain by making a rapid departure from this area - taking Clancy's diamonds with him. He had arrived at 6:30 this evening, one of the very first, prepared to grab the rings at gunpoint and make a run for it.
  • After a short stay, the Earl of March was about to return to Dunbar; when he heard that the king, himself, was coming north with an army for the invasion of Scotland, and would then confer with him, and consider the terms on which he proposed to transfer his allegiance to him. A month later the king arrived at Alnwick, and there George Dunbar, Earl of March, entered into an agreement with him; in which he renounced all fealty to the King of Scotland, in consideration for which he was granted an estate in Lincolnshire, and other revenues. It was also agreed that the subjects of the King of England should support the earl, in time of necessity; and should be supported by him, and received into his fortresses.
  • Thus Montgomery perished, in a long chance of rescuing his partner. But he could have done nothing. He only proved himself to be the kind that never leaves a friend. George Clark did not know what had happened; he heard the rumpus and made off. Maybe he acted wisely. It was a hard problem. If he had killed an Indian in the party, the party would have killed Simon. Anyway, he arrived at Logan's, by himself.
  • The long circle towards our evening camp always proved very long indeed. We arrived at dusk to find supper ready for us. As we were old campaigners we ate this off chop boxes as tables, and sat on the ground. It was served by a Wakamba youth we had nicknamed Herbert Spencer, on account of his gigantic intellect. Herbert meant well, but about all he succeeded in accomplishing was a pathetically wrinkled brow of care and scared eyes. He had never been harshly treated by any of us, but he acted as though always ready to bolt. If there were twenty easy right methods of doing a thing and one difficult wrong method, Herbert would get the latter every time. No amount of experience could teach him the logic of our simplest ways. One evening he brought a tumbler of mixed water and condensed milk. Harold Hill glanced into the receptacle.
  • As the bright Red Commodore arrived at the car park, to the left of the main doors of the mosque, Hasna still had no idea of what she was letting herself in for. Hassan Sayed hadn't said a word since gallantly ushering her into the front seat and she thought it inappropriate to break the silence. He now led her to an adjacent building that had all the hallmarks of a rather large garden shed, but which had a quite imposing sign above the door that read 'Mosque Administration and Rudimentary Training for Young Researchers'. It wasn't lost on Hasna that, as an acronym, this spelt MARTYR and Sayed noticed her quizzical expression immediately.
  • This was too much for Jane, who, afraid to trust herself to further speech, walked straight out of the cottage. She had passed down the model garden and arrived at the model gate when she heard a quick powerful step behind her, and turned round to find herself face to face with Dr. Merchison.
  • Then so was my own view of the scene. The gray transport mist was back, shrouding my body, deadening my senses, blocking my vision. I had been thinking it was time to go, but had I actually managed to summon the transport field? I didnt think Id done a thing. The metabolic link had shown itself to be unpredictable, though, and it was worth remembering that I still didnt know how the transport effect had appeared the first time, when wed arrived at the meeting, so -
  • Just as they arrived at the house of feasting, a cry, wild, weird and horrible, pierced through the uproar. The Interpreter stopped as if struck with a bullet.
  • She shed a flood of tears at the conclusion of this mournful tale, which did not fail to affect the whole audience, especially Serafina, who assured her, that, whatever should happen to her husband, she might depend upon finding favour and protection, provided her conduct should correspond with her professions. While this grateful creature kissed the hand of her kind benefactress, Fathom uttered a groan, began to stir in the bed, and with a languid voice called upon Elenor, who, instantly withdrawing the curtain, presented the whole company to his view. He had now retrieved the use of his perception by the operation of the blisters, which began to torture him severely; he looked around him with amazement and affright, and distinguishing the three persons against whom the chief arrows of his fraud and treachery had been levelled, he concluded that he was now arrived at the land of departed souls, and that the shades of those whom he had so grievously injured were come to see him tormented according to his demerits.
  • There was only one, and he was uncomfortably near the rock; but such a splendid chance was not to be missed, if our previous training was of any avail. There was some speculation as to what he could be doing so close inshore, contrary to the habit of this animal, who seems to be only comfortable when in deep waters; but except a suggestion that perhaps he had come in to scrape off an extra accumulation of barnacles, nobody could arrive at any definite conclusion. When we reached him, we found a frightful blind swell rolling, and it needed all our seamanship to handle the boats so that they should not be capsized. Fortunately, the huge rollers did not break, or we should hardly have got back safely, whale or no whale.
  • The Emperor entered the hall through a broad path between two lines of nobles. Every face expressed respectful, awe-struck curiosity. Pierre stood rather far off and could not hear all that the Emperor said. From what he did hear he understood that the Emperor spoke of the danger threatening the empire and of the hopes he placed on the Moscow nobility. He was answered by a voice which informed him of the resolution just arrived at.
  • After travelling about twelve miles through a fertile country, much of which was in cultivation, the Arab merchants arrived at a large reservoir of water, where they encamped for the night.
  • It is not well that I make any further attempt at following step by step what was supposed to be a hurried movement to reinforce our comrades of the flotilla, but which in reality was neither more nor less than a hasty retreat. It is enough if I say that late in the night following the day when Commodore Barney's fleet was destroyed, we arrived at the marine barracks in Washington, where was the force which had accompanied our commander.
  • A day or two after this we arrived at a camp where the water was excessively bad. We had to draw it for everybody from one deep hole, and probably rats, mice, lizards, and other small animals had fallen in and been drowned, and allowed to remain and putrefy. The water smelt most dreadfully, no filtering or boiling seemed to have any effect upon it, and soup, coffee, and all food were flavoured by it."
  • We arrived at yala in time for lunch and an afternoon jeep drive, during which it was overcast with heavy rain.
  • They grinned sheepishly at each other, and by tacit consent started to walk away. Their pace quickened, and by the time they arrived at their cabin they were on the run.
  • It was now about three in the afternoon. They had a scant three miles more to cover before arriving at their journey's end; and hence were not in any great hurry to push along. So a little rest at the cool spring would not come in amiss, and give poor old Ebenezer a chance to get in condition for the last round.
  • On the 16th, before sunrise, I departed in the most secret manner, and arrived at Boonesborough on the 20th, after a journey of one hundred and sixty miles, during which I had but one meal.
  • The wild young girl sat up as soon as Aiden arrived at her side with the food, and handed the bowl to her. She looked quizzically at the spoon, ignored it, and simply drank from the bowl directly, chewing on the meat as it hit her mouth. Not surprisingly, her appetite was voracious, and before Aiden had returned to the table for his own food, she had finished her stew.
  • That he might himself make inquiries of Dick, I offered to send on board at once for my mate. We accordingly drove back into the town. Dick soon arrived at the hotel, where we remained for him. Monsieur de Villereine cross-questioned him narrowly, and on his producing the coral I spoke of, any doubts he might have entertained vanished.
  • He touched at some of the neighbouring islands, probably those of Arek and Kismis, and soon afterwards the vessels ran aground, but the advancing tide floated them again, and after passing Bestion, they arrived at the island of Keish, that is sacred to Mercury and Venus. This was the boundary-line between Karmania and Persia. As they advanced along the Persian coast, they visited different places, Gillam, Indarabia, Shevou,
  • Well, Matt, you tell Skinner he can't have her and to look around for some other vessel to take her place. I may give her to him at the last minute, but then again I may not. When she arrives at the mill, Matthew, my boy, tie her up to the mill dock to await my pleasure.
  • What of the cowardly Tutelu? Tutelu, still in great terror, arrived at Wakatomica. He panted in with a big story. He showed his head. It was laid open, four inches long, to the bone! He showed his feet. They were filled with thorns. He said that his prisoner had been a giant, with the strength of a buffalo. While they had been talking together, the giant had pulled up a young tree and battered him first on one side of the head and then on the other. They had tussled. He had stabbed the giant twice, in the belly and in the back, and had left him for dead. At least, the fellow would die soon, for he had not been able to pursue.
  • There was an attempt (feeble, so Archie thought it) on the part of Miss Bampton to explain this away. She said that Abracadabra kept a suit of birthday clothes in every house she visited. Archie received the information quite politely, said "Oh, I see," and remained wholly incredulous. His faith in the Abracadabra myth had tottered before: this was the blow that finally and completely compassed its ruin, and it disappeared in the limbo of discredited imaginings, like the glassy sea between the rugs in the hall, and the snarl of the tigers at his enemies. Never again would the combined crash of the servants dinner-bell and the Chinese gong make him wonder at the magnificence of Abracadabra's sneezings, and when the play arrived at the stage of dress-rehearsal it was no shock to see Marjorie in Abraca'dabra's poke-bonnet and be-diamonded bodice.
  • We arrived at Narabanchi late at night on the third day out. As we were approaching, we noticed several riders who, as soon as they had seen us, galloped quickly back to the monastery. For some time we looked for the camp of the Russian detachment without finding it. The Mongols led us into the monastery, where the Hutuktu immediately received me. In his yurta sat Chultun Beyli. There he presented me with hatyks and said to me: "The very God has sent you here to us in this difficult moment."
  • But Cora hadnt seen Elisa, wasnt any party to that young womans nervous gait, arriving at two-thirty but looking as though wishing her shift was already over. Summer said nothing, still feeling chilled, anxious as well. They only smiled at each other as Summer took her leave.
  • The use of mistaken impression they their compensation arriving at your.
  • But, Mr. Martin, persisted Mr. Rae, whose mind was set in arriving at a solution of the problem in hand, "I have understood that agriculture was the chief pursuit in Canada."
  • In a whirl of excitement they arrived at the docks, and were hustled with the rest of the crowd up the steep gangway that led to the deck of the Union Castle Company's latest and most modern liner, the Clarendon Castle. April, who had exchanged her cloth coat for Diana's sables, felt the eyes of the world burning and piercing through the costly furs to the secret in her bosom. But Diana felt no such discomfort, jubilant in her new-found liberty, she paced the decks, inspected the ship, made friends with the first officer and several passengers, and finally went down to lunch in the dining saloon. She seated herself at the general table, and as a number of merry people were toasting each other farewell in champagne, she thought it only fitting to order a half-bottle for herself. Some of the women looked at her curiously, but that did not daunt Diana, especially after she had begun on the champagne.
  • When Ambrose and Simon Grampierre arrived at the tea-dance they found present as many of the Kakisas of both sexes as could be wedged within Jack Mackenzie's shack.
  • The installation of the wireless plant and the presence aboard the ship of Herr von Staden had failed to arouse his suspicions the first day out. True, the wireless could not have been connected with the electric light plant below without Mr. Reardon's knowledge and consent, but when he asked Mr. Schultz about it the latter replied that Cappy Ricks must have changed his mind about installing wireless on the Narcissus, for he had cabled to the agents of the charterers in Pernambuco to have a wireless plant and a competent operator waiting for the vessel upon arrival. It was Mr. Schultz's opinion that the owners had evidently arrived at the conclusion that it was wise to have a wireless aboard during war times. Personally, Mr. Schultz approved of the innovation.
  • Old Gower ambles into the lightwith an hourglass. "Imagine Pericles arrived at Tyre, welcomed, and settled to his homes desire. His woeful queen we leave at Ephesus, unto Diana there a votaress."
  • But of course, Mr Paul. We will do our best to inform you, and remedy your predicament once we have arrived at the Chateau ........ You are of course our guest until such time.’
  • As the underwear goes down, bringing me to my usual and natural condition, all kinds of things happen at the same time. A huge security officer arrives at the bottom of the stage, but is assaulted by a dozen women from the audience and brought down with barely a struggle. The rest of the women are jumping up and down and whooping, staring alternately at me and each other in disbelief. The few men in the audience have all found something more interesting to look at down the aisle or on the back of the chair in front of them. Gary Triumph has finally lost control of his hand movements and is doing his impression of a windmill on amphetamines.
  • She ought to have arrived half an hour before. He was standing, as I have said, at the open drawing-room window. He was nervous about her decision upon the manner in which he had executed his commission. Her letter was in his pocket; and, while he was amusing himself with an imaginary dialogue with her, the carriage arrived at the gate, and was admitted. It was a chariot, prettiest of all carriages -- why discarded now I cannot imagine -- four post-horses, and two postillions. They had travelled up from Gray Forest in the old-fashioned way -- by the road and posting stations -- not then on that line, superseded by rail. Hot and dusty were the horses that were pulled up at the steps. He ran down, and handed his pretty cousin from the carriage, and then her elderly kinswoman and companion, fat and rather amiable, and not very active. The springs yielded to her weight, of which that sagacious lady was as conscious as the elephant, and she leaned upon his shoulder, and then upon his arm, with a cautious emphasis that made him stagger.
  • It sounds very easy and commonplace when one says "hard rowing," but it takes on more significance when one is reminded that those oars were 18 feet long, 5 inches through, and weighed about 20 pounds each; the boat was 30 feet long, a demasted schooner indeed, and rowing her through shallow muddy water, where the ground suction was excessive, made labour so heavy that 15 minute spells were all any one could do. We formed four relays, and all worked in turn all night through, arriving at Chipewyan. 4 A.M., blistered, sore, and completely tired out.
  • Nothing more of importance occurred while we were on the canal. When we arrived at Buffalo the steamer, "Michigan," then new, just ready for her second trip, lay at her wharf ready to start the next morning. Thinking we would get a better night's rest, at a public house, than on the steamer father sought one, but made a poor choice.
  • "Orders had been received by the Egyptian authorities from the European Governments to suppress the slave-trade. Four steamers had arrived at Khartoum from Cairo. Two of these vessels had ascended the White Nile, and had captured many slavers; their crews were imprisoned, and had been subjected to the bastinado and torture;--the captured slaves had been appropriated by the Egyptian authorities.
  • 'That's OK,' said Buchanan arriving at her desk. 'I'm giving up caffeine for Lent,' he said with a smile. He was brandishing a piece of paper.
  • When they arrived at the indicated spot and the V broadened according to orders, the lights of the alien fleet could be discerned moving toward them.
  • I may observe that the only instance that came under my immediate notice of the benefit of a harbour of refuge on the north coast, was that of a vessel wrecked too far to the westward to reach Cape York, the crew of which arrived at Port Essington in their boats.
  • But the boy, arrived at the point where he must strike off for the party, realized that the time for delay was over, and turning to the station agent, who had been eyeing him curiously, he asked for information about the government surveyors. There was no difficulty in finding out roughly the direction in which the party had traveled, but the description of the route over the apparently interminable cactus plains somewhat perturbed Roger, accustomed though he now felt himself to be to find his way over the faintest trails. But he was a boy, just the same, and the cacti looked forbidding and menacing, and the lad wished profoundly that the old frontiersman, who had been his companion on the first ride to Death Valley, were with him now. But there was no help for it, he had to join his party no matter what the trail was like or whither it led.
  • He contemplated how to move forward in this particular investigation. One of his main witnesses had disappeared and was presumed dead. His liaison with the UN mission on the ground had returned to the family home but had found no additional sign of Jonas Negusse or his family. The UN Officer contacted friends and neighbors trying to find some evidence of the familys whereabouts. He was a military man and not trained as an investigator, but ultimately he caught up with a local boy who minded the Negusse property. After some persuasion, the boy described a discouraging scene. He witnessed the soldiers driving toward the house earlier in the day. He thought they were DRC army soldiers but couldnt be sure, and believed there were about five of them. When he arrived at the home, the soldiers were gone as was Jonas Negusse. His wife was dead with a devastating wound to her head and the daughter was still alive.
  • They arrive at a stream of considerable magnitude over which they cross. Encampment on its bank. They ride in the water to elude their pursuers. Jones and Cole give them some information relative to their friends, having met Lewis at Fort Laramie. The joyful reception of the news. Desire to return. The lateness of the season prevents it. They continue on. Arrival at the base of the Sierra Nevada. Fear of crossing the mountains in the snow. They retreat to a place of security with intentions to encamp for the winter. They construct themselves winter quarters as well as they can.
  • Intricate mosaics adorned the walls of the Maretheon, depicting a series of lands and faces with unnaturally large eyes that examined her accusingly. Knowing it for the purest idiocy, she still shivered. Finally, they arrived at a huge glass atrium, which allowed a view of the surrounding ocean. It reflected blue-green on the sea-polished marble and the light rippled through like mismatched silver honeycomb.
  • Still from time to time we contrived to catch some of them, and through one member of our party or the other to get at their stories. Really it was all one story. The slaving Arabs, on this pretext or on that, had set tribe against tribe. Then they sided with the stronger and conquered the weaker by aid of their terrible guns, killing out the old folk and taking the young men, women and children (except the infants whom they butchered) to be sold as slaves. It seemed that the business had begun about twenty years before, when Hassan-ben-Mohammed and his companions arrived at Kilwa and drove away the missionary who had built a station there.
  • Finally we arrived on the 11th floor and disembarked. I'd keep fit taking the stairs I thought. That was until I arrived at work one morning to find tramps sleeping in the stairwell on the third floor and hoping over them was a dangerous and smelly activity.
  • Daniel erases this message, figuring Jack must have lost reception, and then finally arrives at the first message from Jack, it is from two days ago and Daniel recalls having his phone with him that day and did not receive a call or message back from Jack.
  • So Haworth had decided to chase after Longsword and his men and confront them as close to Llanlleyn as possible. Thankfully, his force was fresh after spending an idle day outside of Rhuddlan; they traveled all day and then through the night by the light of the full moon and now, just nearly dawn, they arrived at the Welsh fort. He stopped his soldiers in the obscuring forest and sent a pair of scouts forward to find the Rhuddlan encampment.
  • Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner arrives at the Capitol to face demands from Republican leaders to spell out spending cuts, after President Barack Obama won backing from some corporate executives to raise taxes as part of a deal to avert the fiscal cliff.
  • A whole sequence of new thoughts, hopeless but mournfully pleasant, rose in his soul in connection with that tree. During this journey he, as it were, considered his life afresh and arrived at his old conclusion, restful in its hopelessness: that it was not for him to begin anything anew--but that he must live out his life, content to do no harm, and not disturbing himself or desiring anything.
  • This seemed to him beyond belief, and yet he could arrive at no other conclusion. If a hundred thousand victims had been offered up, in one temple of this comparatively small city, what must be the total of men killed throughout the country? The pile had, no doubt, been a long time in growing, perhaps a hundred years; but even then it would give a thousand victims, yearly, in this one temple.
  • When Virginia arrived at the foot of the hill, and looked back, she could see the Herculean figure of the Recluse, throwing its tall shadow far down the face of the cliff, as he paced his narrow court exactly as she had found him doing.
  • After passing a somewhat restless night in the boudoir car they arrived at Melbourne. Boudoir cars are very comfortable and pleasant places in their way, but on this particular occasion they did not find it overwhelmingly pleasant, for their fellow-passengers had their own peculiar way of amusing themselves. For instance, a Melbournite and a Sydneyite had to share the same compartment, and any man who has travelled in Australia knows what that will lead to. It was a new experience to Reg. Hal, however, found himself fully occupied in closing his ears to the snores coming from a passenger in the next compartment.
  • When the disgruntled hordes finally arrived at the spot, they were met by young people in coveralls with shining faces and official 'Farm Person' badges.
  • And besides, human society had done him nothing but harm; he had never seen anything of it save that angry face which it calls Justice, and which it shows to those whom it strikes. Men had only touched him to bruise him. Every contact with them had been a blow. Never, since his infancy, since the days of his mother, of his sister, had he ever encountered a friendly word and a kindly glance. From suffering to suffering, he had gradually arrived at the conviction that life is a war; and that in this war he was the conquered. He had no other weapon than his hate. He resolved to whet it in the galleys and to bear it away with him when he departed.
  • When at last the weary travellers arrived at the Lind domta, it seemed as if the entire pack had turned out to greet them. Walking beside their partners, the human children were quite overawed by it all although the Lind explained that there was nothing to fear. The inhabitants of the pack were curious, nothing more. The Lindar was still on patrol but were expecting to be relieved by another Lindar within the moon. Then the whole pack would be in the rtathlian, the pack-home wood-range.
