Disposable Black Face Mask a nuisance to us. We don t need all you fellows, added Louis Belgrave, turning to his servant. We are accustomed to wait on ourselves. One of you is enough for all of us. No, Sahib no khidmutgar waits on more than one gentleman, replied Louis s man, with a cheerful smile, displaying a wealth of white teeth which would have been creditable to an Alabama negro. That s what s the matter, is it added Scott. I have learned that no Hindu will do more than one kind of work, take care of more than one person and no groom will take care of more than one horse. If you have six horses, you must have six hostlers. That is what Sir Modava told me. Custom is law here, and we must follow the fashions, replied Louis. What is your name, my boy he continued, turning to his servant. Sayad, sahib, answered he. Scott s was Moro, Morris s was Mobarak, and Felix s was Balaya but the last two were speedily abbreviated into Mobby and Bally, to which the young Hindus offered no objection. They were all under twenty years of age, and spoke English passably well. Here, Sayad black my shoes, said Louis, determined to make use of his servant. I don t clean the shoes, replied the fellow, shaking his head. I call the porter and he did so. That is just what Sir Modava told me, added Scott. But Sayad had opened his master s valise, placed his toilet articles on the bureau, and brushed his coat, which he had taken off. He arranged everything with good taste, and smiled expansively every time Louis looked at him. The shoes of all four were polished in time and they were ready to begin their explorations of the city, though it was rather late in the day. What time is dinner, Moro asked Scott. Seven o clock, sahib, replied the boy and he was more of a boy than a man. What time are the other meals Meals queried Moro. What time is breakfast Bring sahib coffee at six in the morning breakfast at nine tiffin at one. What s that last one, Moro We had tiffin at Suez, and it means luncheon, interposed Morris. I didn t hear the word but it is all right, and tiffin it is after this time. Come are you going down stairs, fellows There is a public sitting room down stairs, and we will find that first. The four servants followed them when they disposable black face mask went down stairs. None of the party had yet gone to the public room except Sir Modava, though Lord Tremlyn soon joined him. Their attendants stopped outside the doors. We are going to the tailor s now, said the Hindu gentleman. As you are aware, we lost all our clothes except what we had disposable black face mask on, and we must order.n who could be no other than the maharajah. He was dressed in the most magnificent robes of India, covered with jewels in ornamental profusion. That is the Guicowar, said the Hindu guide. He is doing us great honor in coming out in this manner to welcome us. As soon as he discovered the party, the ruler dismounted nimbly from his noble steed, and, attended by some high officers, advanced to meet them. A sort of procession was hastily formed with Lord Tremlyn at the head of it for he was the most distinguished person, and in some sense the representative of the British home government. The Italian band of the general, as soon as the native band ceased, struck up Hail, to the chief The party encountered the king, who rushed smaco full face snorkel mask with uv protection anti-fog anti-leak up to the viscount, and seized him by the hand, as not all kings are in the habit of doing. They talked together for a few moments, when his Highness happened to see Sir Modava, and rushed to him, seizing him in a semi embrace, clasping the Hindu with his right hand while the left encircled his shoulder. The potentate was profuse in his congratulations to the two gentlemen on their escape from death in the shipwreck, and this afforded Lord Tremlyn an opportunity to present Captain Ringgold as the commander of the steamer that had saved them. He is my friend, then, said the Maharajah, as he gave him no equivocal shake of the hand. Then Louis and his mother were presented and described, and received an equally warm welcome. But the prince decided to receive the rest of the party at the palace, and they were requested to mount the elephants. medical face mask itches The ladies were timid about it but Louis told his mother that she must get up into the howdah as though she had been riding elephants all her life, and she did so, the others following her example. Louis assisted his mother first, and then Miss Blanche. They were all seated on the huge beasts, and the procession started, the Italian band following the native, disposable black face mask and playing when they disposable black face mask ceased to do so. CHAPTER XXV FELIX MCGAVONTY BRINGS DOWN SOME SNAKES Well, what do you think of this asked Captain Ringgold, turning to Mrs. Belgrave, as the elephant moved off. I don t feel quite at home up here, she replied, holding on with both hands at the side of the howdah. I think protective face mask for broken cheekbone it is nice, added Miss Blanche. It seems very much like riding on a camel, only there is more motion. It is a good place to see everything there is to be seen, suggested Louis, as he looked about him. The king is taking us to his palace in high style. If he meant to astonish us, he has.
nger. Let s try to buck up and enjoy the banquet. They did enjoy the banquet. They had a beautiful bath, which was delicious, were heavily oiled all over, including their hair, and that was most unpleasant. Then, they dressed again and were presented to the King, who was most affable. The banquet was long there were all sorts of nice things to eat, and everybody seemed to eat and drink a good deal. Everyone lay on cushions and couches, ladies on one side and gentlemen on the other and after the eating was done each lady went and sat by some gentleman, who seemed to be her sweetheart or her husband, for they were very affectionate to each other. The Court dresses had gold threads woven in them, very bright and beautiful. The middle of the room was left clear, and different people came and did amusing things. There were conjurers and jugglers and snake charmers, which last Anthea did not like at all. When it got dark torches were lighted. Cedar splinters dipped in oil blazed in copper dishes set high on poles. Then there was a dancer, who hardly danced at all, only just struck attitudes. She had hardly any clothes, and was not at all pretty. The children were rather bored by her, but everyone else was delighted, including the King. By the beard of Nimrod he cried, ask what you like girl, and you shall have it I want nothing, said the dancer the honour of having pleased the King may he live for ever is reward enough for me. And the King was so pleased with this modest and sensible reply that he gave her the gold collar off his own neck. I say said Cyril, awed by the magnificence of the gift. It s all right, whispered the Queen, it s not his best collar by any means. We always keep a stock of cheap jewellery for these occasions. And now you promised to sing us something. Would you like my minstrels to accompany you No, thank you, said Anthea quickly. The minstrels had been playing off and on all the time, and their music reminded Anthea of the band she and the others had once had on the fifth of November with penny horns, a tin whistle, a tea tray, the tongs, a policeman s rattle, and a toy drum. They had enjoyed this band very much at the time. But it was quite different when someone else was making the same kind of music. Anthea understood now that Father had not been really heartless and unreasonable when he had told them to stop that infuriating din. What shall we sing Cyril was asking. Sweet and low suggested Anthea. Too soft I vote for Who will o er the downs. Now then one, two, three. Oh, who w.much uglier than you really were, however plain you might be to begin with. Then there masks cowboys wore over their faces for protection was a mantelboard with maroon plush and wool fringe that did not match the plush a dreary clock like a black marble tomb it was silent as the grave too, for it had long since forgotten how disposable black face mask to tick. And there were painted glass vases that never had any flowers in, and a painted tambourine that no one ever played, and painted brackets with nothing on them. And maple framed engravings of the Queen, the Houses of Parliament, the Plains of Heaven, and of a blunt nosed woodman s flat return. There were two books last December s Bradshaw, and an odd volume of Plumridge s Commentary on Thessalonians. There were but I cannot dwell longer on this painful picture. It was indeed, as Jane said, very different. Let s do face masks protect against flu have a palaver, said Anthea again. What about said Cyril, yawning. There s nothing to have ANYTHING about, said Robert kicking the leg of the table miserably. I don t want to play, said Jane, and her tone was grumpy. Anthea tried very hard not to be cross. She succeeded. Look here, she said, don t think I want to be preachy or a beast in any way, but I want to what Father calls define the situation. disposable face masks with design Do you agree Fire ahead, said Cyril without enthusiasm. Well then. We all know the reason we re staying here is because Nurse couldn t leave her house on account of the poor learned gentleman on the top floor. And there was no one else Father could entrust to take care of disposable black face mask us and you know it s taken a lot of money, Mother s going to Madeira to be made well. Jane sniffed disposable black face mask miserably. Yes, I know, said Anthea in a hurry, but don t let s think about how horrid it all is. I mean we can t go to things that cost a lot, but we must do SOMETHING. And I know there are heaps of things which way to wear white disposable face mask you can see in London without paying for them, and I thought we d go and see them. We are all quite old now, and we haven t got The Lamb Jane sniffed harder than before. I mean no one can say No because of him, dear pet. And I thought we MUST get Nurse to see how quite old we are, and let us go out by ourselves, or else we shall never have any sort of a time at all. And I vote we see everything there is, and let s begin by asking Nurse to give us some bits of bread and we ll go to St James s Park. There are ducks there, I know, we can feed them. Only we must make Nurse let us go by ourselves. Hurrah for liberty said Robert, but she won t. Yes she will, said Jane unexpectedly. I thought about that this morning, and I asked Father, and he said yes and.d had brekker early and was hard at work in his study. We heard his quill pen squeaking when we listened at the door. It is not wrong to listen at doors when there is only one person inside, because nobody would tell itself secrets aloud when it was alone. We got lunch from the housekeeper, Mrs Pettigrew. She seems almost to LIKE us all to go out medical aesthetic supply blue light face mask and take our lunch with us. Though I should think it must be very dull for her all alone. I remember, though, that Eliza, our late general at Lewisham, was just the disposable black face mask same. We took the dear dogs of course. Since the Tower of Mystery happened we are not allowed to go anywhere without the escort of these faithful friends of man. We did not take Martha, because bull dogs do not like walks. Remember this if you ever have one of those valuable animals. When we were all ready, with our big hats and cockle shells, and our staves and our tape sandals, the pilgrims looked very nice. Only we haven t any scrips, Dora said. What is a scrip I think it s something to read. A roll of parchment or something. So we had old newspapers rolled up, and carried them in zoo animals protection wash hands face masks our hands. We took the Globe and the Westminster Gazette because they are pink and green. The Dentist wore his white sandshoes, sandalled with black tape, and bare legs. They really looked almost as good as bare feet. We OUGHT to have peas in our shoes, he said. But we did not think so. We knew what a very little stone in your boot will do, let alone peas. Of course we knew the way to go to Canterbury, because the old Pilgrims Road runs just above our house. It is a very pretty road, narrow, and often shady. It is nice for walking, but carts do not like it because it is rough and rutty so there is grass growing in patches on it. I have said that it was a fine day, which means that it was not raining, but the sun did not shine all the time. Tis well, O Knight, said Alice, that the orb of day shines not disposable black face mask in undi what s its name splendour. Thou sayest sooth, Plain Pilgrim, replied Oswald. Tis jolly warm even as it is. I wish I wasn t two people, Noel said, it seems to make me hotter. I think I ll be a Reeve or something. But we would not let him, and we explained that if he hadn t been so beastly particular Alice would have been half of him, and he had only himself to thank if being all of a Nun Priest made him hot. But it WAS warm certainly, and it was some time since we d gone so far in boots. Yet when H. O. complained we did our duty as pilgrims and made him shut up. He did as soon as Alice said that about whining a.
Disposable Black Face Mask . I accept this as the property of the ship, and to me personally nothing could be more valued, replied the commander, extending his thanks at considerable length but he said nothing more about payment, though he could not help thinking that their elegant and bountiful hospitality had cost the viscount and the Indian gentleman several thousand pounds. But we do not separate just yet and I have another favor to ask disposable black face mask of you, Captain Ringgold, which is that you will give us a passage to Colombo, added Lord Tremlyn. For myself and my party, we shall all be delighted to have you remain with us indefinitely, replied the commander, taking his lordship s hand. I extend to you, Sir Modava, and Dr. Ferrolan a cordial invitation to complete with us our voyage around the world and we will endeavor to be as hospitable to you in the United States as you have been to us in India. Nothing would afford me so great a pleasure, replied Lord Tremlyn but it would be quite impossible for me to accept the invitation, for I must return to England, and disposable black face mask report upon my mission to India. Sir Modava and Dr. Ferrolan also declined, for reasons given. The company had called upon some of the officials of the government and officers of the army, at disposable black face mask the request of his lordship, and most of them made parting calls disposable black face mask the next forenoon and the viceroy sent his private secretary, with the best wishes of his Excellency for a prosperous voyage, to them. After tiffin they all went on board, where their baggage had been sent before, the Italian 3m household half-face mask respirator protects against band playing all the time on Captain O Flaherty s steamer, which put them on board. General Noury had sent word to Captain Sharp that he should continue with the party to Colombo, and that he could proceed at once to that port. In fact, he liked the company of the party on board of the Guardian Mother so well that he was not inclined to part with them at present. The passengers took possession of their staterooms, and there was still one left for the general, and the band was quartered in the library. The hour for sailing had been fixed at three o clock and just before that time the Cherub, Captain O Flaherty, appeared, having on board a regimental band and the friends of Lord Tremlyn, Sir Modava, and Dr. Ferrolan, who extended to them the compliment of an escort, and, incidentally, to the commander and his passengers. About half an hour before the time for sailing a shore boat came up to the gangway, and a well dressed gentleman with a swarthy face ascended the steps. He asked to see Captain Ringgold.s not till the twenty second of September that Havelock and Outram arrived, and captured the Alum Bagh, which we shall visit this morning. It was a terrible summer that the beleaguered people and their brave handful of soldiers passed and Tennyson has commemorated Lucknow in his immortal verse. But the coming of Havelock was not the end for the rebels besieged the place again, and it was near the middle of November before Sir Colin Campbell arrived, with a considerable force. He captured the Alum Bagh, and, leaving in it a force of three thousand five hundred men, he escorted the women and children and the civilians to Cawnpore but returned in March to subdue the rebels. For a week he fought them, drove them from the intrenchments in which they had fortified themselves, and the mutiny was ended, as I related to you on board of your ship. The carriages were at the door as soon as the party had breakfasted. They were driven to the cemetery, where they saw the grave of Lawrence, whose memorial is that He tried to do his duty. In the Alum Bagh, which means the Queen s Garden, was the grave of Havelock. It was here that Outram had his camp and fortifications for the defence of Lucknow during the absence of Campbell. The Kaiser Bagh, or C aelig sar s Garden, contains some of the principal sights of the city, which the viscount pointed out and described. It is a forest of domes and cupolas and the company halted at the pavilion of Lanka, which a French writer called the least ridiculous of the structures in the enclosure, though the professor insisted that it was quite as bad as the worst. It had an abundance of cupolas with arabesque domes but the edifice looked like a shell, for the veranda, with lofty columns supporting the roof, appeared to take up the greater portion of the enclosed space. The most grotesque feature was at the entrance. A flight of broad stairs led to the principal floor, over which was extended what looked like an imitation of the Rialto bridge in Venice, with a small temple under the middle arch and at the head of the stairs. The top of the bridge was on a level with the flat roof, and the two side arches started from the ground. The building was handsome in some of its details but the professor said it was an abomination, and Dr. Hawkes called it queer. The various edifices are now occupied by the civil and military officials. Where does the name of this place come from asked Captain Ringgold. Kaiser Bagh seems to be half German. But it is not German, replied Lord Tremlyn. These b.
