"Get up! They've fired the engine and are fixing to take off!" The train is leaving!
There were four cop cars and eight cops standing between the crowd and the train. The cops all had billy clubs and were spread out to protect the train. The crowd kept getting bigger and bigger. One of the cops yelled, "You men know you can't get on this train, just go on back to Shantytown and there won't be no trouble."

I folded my blanket up and put it in my suitcase and tied the twine back. I put my jackknife in my pocket and Bugs and I ran outside.
