The Emperor was proud of his new tin castle, and showed his visitors through all the rooms.
If we used money to buy things with, instead of love and kindness and the desire to please one another, then we should be no better than the rest of the world," declared the Tin Woodman.
The Tin Woodman listened with respectful attention.
It seems," said the Tin Woodman, "that our dear Scarecrow cannot be contented with city life, however beautiful his surroundings might be.
So now, after a long residence in the Emerald City, his tastes have turned to farm life again," continued the Tin Man.
They were now invited to enter the tin dining room, where luncheon was served.
So the Tin Woodman shouldered his axe and they all passed through the forest until they came to the road that was paved with yellow brick.
The Tin Woodman had asked Dorothy to put the oil-can in her basket.
But the Tin Woodman set to work with his axe and chopped so well that soon he cleared a passage for the entire party.
Late in the afternoon they drew near to the wonderful tin castle of the Emperor of the Winkies, and Ojo and Scraps, who had never seen it before, were filled with amazement.
So the Tin Woodman had employed them in building his magnificent castle, which was all of tin, from the ground to the tallest turret, and so brightly polished that it glittered in the sun's rays more gorgeously than silver.
It will require quick work, if we escape the blow," said the Tin Woodman, with a shake of his head.
That was an idea for the Tin Woodman to follow, and he also crossed in safety while the great hammer was in the air.
When the Tin Woodman sat down no one applauded him, for his arguments had not been very convincing and few believed that he had proved Eureka's innocence.
The Princess was just about to order Eureka's head chopped off with the Tin Woodman's axe when that brilliant personage once more arose and addressed her.
