Whether it divined that it was being driven toward the lake, or whether it was merely a blind squirm of the monster, I do not know; but at any rate the mob took a cross street to the west, turned down the next street, and came back upon its track, heading south toward the great ghetto.
They could not advance over that wave of dead, and the idea was to run them down the cross street. The soldiers were dragging the bodies away from the wheels when it happened.
All at once, I saw two figures: one a little man who was stumping along eastward at a good walk, and the other a girl of maybe eight or ten who was running as hard as she was able down a cross street
. Well, sir, the two ran into one another naturally enough at the corner; and then came the horrible part of the thing; for the man trampled calmly over the child's body and left her screaming on the ground.
By and bye he passed into a cross street
, which, although densely filled with people, was not quite so much thronged as the main one he had quitted.
From one building he went to another, and so on, with much climbing, until at a cross street
he discovered another pole, down which he ran to the ground.
At the corner where the main stream of people flowed onward, he started to edge out into the cross street
. But the girl with the black eyes caught his arm, following him and dragging her companion after her, as she cried:
At the first cross street
Andrea stopped his horse, and Caderousse leaped out.
Through the cross streets
of the Khamovniki quarter the prisoners marched, followed only by their escort and the vehicles and wagons belonging to that escort, but when they reached the supply stores they came among a huge and closely packed train of artillery mingled with private vehicles.
And still from all the cross streets
they were hurrying and rattling toward the converging point at full speed, and hurling thcmselves into the struggling mass, locking wheels and adding their drivers' imprecations to the clamour.
The river and the hills are delicious, and these glimpses of the narrow cross streets
are my delight.
And with all the cross streets
numbered!" She seemed to guess his faint disapproval of this, and added, with the rare smile that enchanted her whole face: "If you knew how I like it for just THAT-- the straight-up-and-downness, and the big honest labels on everything!"
Several streets of good breadth and appearance extend from its summit to the water-side, and are intersected by cross streets
running parallel with the river.
