Yesterday I was a cable-car conductor, and to-day I am a poet!
But on the way to the cable-car no ash-can presented itself.
Onct yer git onter it, youse kin yank a cable-car outer a manhole.
"I'll take the cable-car and be there waiting for you," he responded.
A cable-car without any visible means of support slid stealthily behind me and nearly struck me in the back.
They paused at the corner to wait for a cable-car, and Sherrington joined them.
The hens and chickens were kept here and two roosters, one of which crowed every time a cable-car passed the house.
"There comes the cable-car, climbing up to get us," she said faintly.
She accepted his offer thankfully, so they took the cable-car together.
Mrs. Levice was delighted to see him; she said it was like the sight of a cable-car in a desert.
