The car was moving at a terrific rate of speed, up grade, and down grade.
You business people are on the up grade just now, and you know it.
A half-hour went by, and still the car rattled on, up grade and down, without once slacking its speed.
Then No. 999 struck the edge of the up grade in safety, past the danger line, gliding along on clear tracks now.
Twelve miles an hour on the level, and six miles an hour up grade of one in twenty, were made.
My earnings, though on the up grade, had seemed very insufficient of late.
It's up grade all the way, and it takes ten men's nerve to stick it out to the top.
By the looks of our cattle it did not seem as if they could pull much, and light loads were advisable on this up grade.
From the moment we left the door of our temporary lodging, our road was up grade.
We will be up higher, and though we'll have to go slower on account of the up grade, it will be better for all of us.
