They were shown to their rooms and permitted to make such toilets as they could, and soon they assembled again in the grand tin dining-hall, even Toto being present.
Toto behaved himself, and sat in a tin high-chair beside Dorothy and ate his dinner from a tin platter.
Indeed, they all ate from tin dishes, but these were of pretty shapes and brightly polished; Dorothy thought they were just as good as silver.
The Tin Woodman received Princess Dorothy's party with much grace and cordiality, yet the little girl decided that something must be worrying with her old friend, because he was not so merry as usual.
The walks were all paved with sheets of tin, brightly polished, and there were tin fountains and tin statues here and there among the trees.
Therefore I decided to make one tin flower bed all of tin flowers, and my workmen have created them with rare skill.
"Lay her egg!" repeated the Tin Woodman, in astonishment.
"What's the matter?" called the Tin Woodman, anxiously.
To be sure neither the Woodman nor the Scarecrow ever ate anything, but she was not made of tin nor straw, and could not live unless she was fed.
One of the big trees had been partly chopped through, and standing beside it, with an uplifted axe in his hands, was a man made entirely of tin. His head and arms and legs were jointed upon his body, but he stood perfectly motionless, as if he could not stir at all.
Tin abounded in the Winkie Country and the Winkies were said to be the most skillful tinsmiths in all the world.
Tin fountains sent sprays of clear water far into the air and there were many beds of tin flowers, all as perfectly formed as any natural flowers might be.
