The women at the boards near to her scrambled, first, to the hot iron to save the cloth, and then to her, while the forewoman hurried belligerently down the aisle.

Two women, clutching her under the arms, were dragging her down the aisle. She drummed and shrieked the length of it.
It was supplied with two rows of seats, perpendicular to the direction of the train on either side of an aisle
