Do Face Masks Protect You mulet from the neck of her frock. Like this, she said. The Captain looked at it curiously, but, the other three were relieved to notice, without any of that overwhelming interest which the mere name of it had roused in Egypt and Babylon. The stone is of our country, he said and that which is engraved on it, it is like our writing, but I cannot read it. What is the name of your sage Ji jimmy, said Anthea hesitatingly. The Captain repeated, Ji jimmy. Will you land he added. And shall I lead you to the Kings Look here, said Robert, does your King hate strangers Our Kings are ten, said the Captain, and the Royal line, unbroken from Poseidon, the father of us all, has the noble tradition to do honour to strangers if they come in peace. Then lead on, please, said Robert, though I SHOULD like to see all over your beautiful ship, and sail about in her. That shall be later, said the Captain just now we re afraid of a storm do you notice that odd rumbling That s nothing, master, said an old sailor who stood near it s the pilchards coming in, that s all. Too loud, said the Captain. There was a rather anxious pause then the Captain stepped on to the quay, and the others followed him. Do talk to him Jimmy, said Anthea as they went you can find out all sorts of things for your friend s book. Please excuse me, he said earnestly. If I talk I shall wake up and besides, I can t do face masks protect you understand what he says. No one else could think of anything to say, so that it was in complete silence that they followed the Captain up the marble do face masks protect you steps and through the streets of the town. There were streets and shops and houses and markets. It s just like Babylon, whispered Jane, only everything s perfectly different. It s a great comfort the ten Kings have been properly brought up to be kind to strangers, Anthea whispered to Cyril. Yes, he said, no deepest dungeons here. There were no horses or chariots in the street, but there were handcarts and low trolleys running on thick log wheels, and porters carrying packets on their heads, and a good many of the people were riding on what looked like elephants, only the great beasts were hairy, and they had not that mild expression we are accustomed to meet on the faces of the elephants at the Zoo. do face masks protect you Mammoths murmured the learned gentleman, and stumbled over a loose stone. The people in the streets kept crowding round them as they went along, but the Captain always dispersed the crowd before it grew uncomfortably thick by saying Children of the Sun God and their High Priest come to bless the Citygion they do face masks protect you had yet visited. They were in sight of the lofty mountains of the island before mentioned. They found here the remains of ancient temples from one hundred and fifty to four hundred feet high and one of them was built to contain the shrine of Gautama s tooth, and another for his collar bone, both of which the English believe are frauds. Another was the Brazen Palace, nine stories high, and supported on sixteen hundred pillars. But most of the party took no interest in these structures, they had seen so many more that were larger, grander, and finer. They saw here the sacred Bo tree, of which they had before been informed. With great regret they left Kandy, and were soon in Colombo again. The Guardian Mother was announced to sail the next day early in the afternoon. The time for parting with Lord Tremlyn, Sir Modava Rao, and Dr. Ferrolan had nearly arrived. The hosts of the party had provided a grand dinner for the last one. The governor and a number of officials, the American consul, and others had been invited. Lord Tremlyn presided with Captain Ringgold on his right and after the fine dinner had been disposed of the commander was the person called upon do face masks protect you to respond to the Protective paint mask (disposable or replacement type) first toast, The Guardian Mother and her Passengers. The name announced was received with the most tremendous applause, and For he s a jolly good fellow was sung by Englishmen, assisted by the Americans, including the ladies. Captain Ringgold began his speech, for which he had prepared himself, and reviewed the incidents which had occurred since the survivors of the Travancore had been taken from their perilous position. He set forth the obligations to which his passengers and himself were do face masks protect you under to the distinguished gentlemen who had conducted them through India. He was frequently interrupted by hearty applause, and his speech was as eloquent as it was sensible and it was worthy a Senator in Congress. Lord Tremlyn was equally eloquent in the acknowledgment of his obligations, and those of his friends, to the noble commander and his ship s company and possibly he was a little extravagant in some things that he said, but that was excusable on such an occasion. The next person presented was Mr. Louis Belgrave, who declared that he represented the Big Four, which puzzled the strangers, though he explained the term and where it came from. The boys had been happy medical face mask target all the time. They admired and loved the noble gentlemen under whose guidance they had had six weeks of the best time in all their lives. When he said what he had to s.
words, but not undeserved, and Oswald owns he felt disposable face mask for autobody repair red with gratifying pride when he heard them. So you are the traitor, young man, said the wicked Colonel, going on with his cheek. Oswald bore it because our Colonel had, and you should be generous to a fallen foe, but it is hard to be called a traitor when you haven t. He did not treat the wicked Colonel with silent scorn as he might have done, but he said We aren t traitors. We are the Bastables and one of us is a Foulkes. We only mingled unsuspected with the enemy s soldiery and learned the secrets of their acts, which is what Baden Powell always does when the natives rebel in South Africa and Denis Foulkes thought of altering the sign posts to lead the foe astray. And if we did cause all this fighting, and get Maidstone threatened with capture and all that, it was only because we didn t believe Greek things could happen in Great Britain and Ireland, even if you sow dragon s teeth, and besides, some of us were not asked about sowing them. Then the Cocked Hatted One led his horse and walked with us and made us tell him all about it, and so did the Colonel. The wicked Colonel listened too, which was only another proof of his cheek. And Oswald told the tale in the modest yet manly way that some people think he has, and gave the others all the credit they deserved. His narration was interrupted no less than four times by shouts of Bravo in which the enemy s Colonel once more showed his cheek by joining. By the time the story was told we were in sight of another camp. It was the British one this time. The Colonel asked us to have tea in his tent, and it only shows the magnanimosity of English chivalry in the field of battle that he asked the enemy s Colonel too. With his usual cheek he accepted. We were jolly hungry. When everyone had had as much tea as they possibly could, the Colonel shook hands with us all, and to Oswald he said Well, good bye, my brave scout. I must mention your name in my dispatches to the War Office. H. O. interrupted him to say, His name s Oswald Cecil Bastable, and mine is Horace Octavius. I wish H. O. would learn to hold his tongue. No one ever knows Oswald was christened Cecil as well, if he do face masks protect you can possibly help it. YOU didn t know it till now. Mr Oswald Bastable, the Colonel went on he had the decency not to take any do face masks protect you notice of the Cecil you would be a credit to any regiment. No doubt the War Office will reward you properly for what you have done for your country. But meantime, perhaps, you ll accept five shillings from a gra.but the party drove to one in the Black Town. It had a low dome and a pyramidal spire. Both of them were of the Indian style of architecture, very elaborate in ornamentation. It looked like a huge mass of filigree work. The visitors next found themselves at Girgaum, which is a forest of cocoanut trees extending from the Bazaars to Chowpatti, at the head of the Back Bay. Among the trees, as the carriages proceeded along the Queen s Road, they found a great number of Hindu huts, half hidden in the dense foliage. They paused to look at one of them. The walls do face masks protect you were of bamboo and other tropical woods, and the roof was thatched with cocoanut leaves, which required poles to keep them in place. It had several doors, and cross latticed windows. There was do face masks protect you no particular shape to the structure, and certainly nothing of neatness or comeliness about it. A large banana tree grew near it a woman stood at one of the doors, staring with wonder at the strangers, and a couple of half naked coolies were at work farther away. The morality of the residents of this section could not be commended. In the evening this grove is lighted up with colored lamps, said the viscount. Taverns and small caf s are in full blast, the sounds of music are heard, and a grand revel is in progress. Europeans, Malays, Arabs, Chinese, and Hindus frequent the grove. Far into the night this debauchery continues, and I trust the authorities will soon clean it out. The carriages continued on their way to Malabar Hill, and made a thorough survey of the locality. At the southerly point they came to the village of Walkeshwar, whose pagoda like towers they had seen from the ship, filled with residences, though not of the magnates of the city. Most of the buildings here were very plain. The hill is not a high one, but along its sides the elaborate bungalows of the merchants and others were erected, all of them with clear protective face mask fine gardens surrounding them. Breach Candy, on the seashore, in front of Cumballa Hill, is the most aristocratic neighborhood, and contains the finest mansions. Tramways, which is the English name for horse cars, extend to this locality, as well as to most other important parts of the city and there is a station on the steam railroad near it, though most of the wealthy residents ride back and forth in their own carriages. The Tower of Silence, in which the Parsees expose their dead to be devoured by birds of prey, was pointed out to them. No one but the priests are allowed to enter it and the relatives leave the body at the door, from which.blue it all on this charm and it turns out to be not up to much well disposable face mask expire date you see what I m driving at, don t you I see that YOU don t see more than the length of your nose, and THAT S not far, said the Psammead crossly. Look here, I HAD to give you the wishes, and of course they turned out badly, in a sort of way, because you hadn t the sense to wish for what was good for you. But this charm s quite different. I haven t GOT to do this for you, it s just my own generous kindness that makes me tell you about it. So it s bound to be all right. See Don t be cross, said Anthea, Please, PLEASE don t. You see, it s all we ve got we shan t have any more pocket money till Daddy comes home unless he sends us some in a letter. But we DO trust you. And I say all of you, she went on, don t you think it s worth spending ALL the money, if there s even the chanciest chance of getting Father and Mother back safe NOW Just think of it Oh, do let s I don t care what you do, said the Psammead I ll go back to sand again till you ve made up your minds. No, don t said everybody and Jane added, We are quite mind made up don t you see we are Let s get our hats. Will you come with us Of course, said the Psammead how else would you find the shop So everybody got its hat. The Psammead was put into a flat bass bag that had come from Farringdon Market with two pounds of filleted plaice in it. Now it contained about three pounds and a quarter of solid Psammead, and the children took it in turns to carry it. It s not half the weight of The Lamb, Robert said, and the girls sighed. The Psammead poked a wary eye uv protective face mask out of the top of the basket every now and then, and told the children which turnings to take. How on earth do you know asked Robert. I can t think how you do it. And the Psammead said sharply, No I don t suppose you can. At last they came to THE shop. It had all sorts and kinds of things in the window concertinas, and silk handkerchiefs, china vases and tea cups, blue Japanese jars, pipes, swords, pistols, lace collars, silver spoons tied up in half dozens, and wedding rings in a red lacquered basin. There were officers epaulets and doctors lancets. There were tea caddies inlaid with red turtle shell and brass curly wurlies, plates of different kinds of money, and stacks of different kinds of plates. There was a beautiful picture of a little girl washing a dog, which Jane liked very much. And in the middle of the window there was night protective face mask a dirty silver tray full of mother of pearl card counters, old seals, paste buckles, snuff boxes, and.
Do Face Masks Protect You ll day about it, for he is a kind hearted boy and can make allowances. So Denny took off his boots and went into the pool. Oh, it s ripping he said. You ought to come in. It looks beastly muddy, said his tolerating leader. It is a bit, Denny said, but the mud s just as cool as the water, and so soft, it squeezes between your toes quite different to boots. And so he splashed about, and kept asking Oswald to come along in. But some unseen influence prevented Oswald doing this or it may have been because both his bootlaces were in hard knots. Oswald had cause to bless the unseen influence, or the bootlaces, or whatever it was. Denny had got to the middle of the pool, and he was splashing about, and getting his clothes very wet indeed, and altogether you would have thought his was a most envious and happy state. But alas the brightest cloud had a waterproof lining. He was just saying You are a silly, Oswald. You d much better when he gave a blood piercing scream, and began to kick about. What s up n95 face mask for smoke protection cried the ready Oswald he feared the worst from the way Denny screamed, but he knew it could not be an old meat tin in this quiet and jungular spot, like it was in the moat when the shark bit Dora. I don t know, it s biting me. Oh, it s biting me all over my legs Oh, what shall I do Oh, it does hurt Oh oh oh remarked Denny, among his screams, and he splashed towards the bank. Oswald went into the water and caught hold of him and helped him out. It is true that Oswald had his boots on, but I trust he would not have funked the unknown terrors of the deep, even without his boots, I am almost sure he would not have. When Denny had scrambled and been hauled ashore, we saw with horror and amaze that his legs were stuck all over with large black, slug looking things. Denny turned green in the face and even Oswald felt a bit queer, for he knew in a moment what the black dreadfulnesses were. He had read about them in a book called Magnet Stories, where there was a girl called Theodosia, and she could play brilliant trebles on the piano in duets, but the other girl knew all about leeches which is much more useful and golden deedy. Oswald tried to pull the leeches off, but they wouldn t, and Denny howled so he had to stop trying. He remembered from the Magnet do face masks protect you Stories how to make the leeches begin biting the do face masks protect you girl did it with cream but he could not remember how to stop them, and they had not wanted any showing how to begin. Oh, what shall I do What shall I do Oh, it does hurt Oh, oh Denny observed, and Oswald said Be a ma.quite light with windows. When we had gone some way up this, we came to a sort of landing, and there was a block of stone let into the wall polished Denny said it was Aberdeen graphite, with gold letters cut in it. It said Here lies the body of Mr Richard Ravenal Born 1720. Died 1779. and a verse of poetry Here lie I, between earth and sky, Think upon me, dear passers by, And you who do my tombstone see Be kind to say a prayer for me. How horrid Alice said. Do let s get home. We may as well go to the top, Dicky said, just to say we ve been. And Alice is no funk so she agreed though I could see she did not like it. Up at the top it was like the top of the church tower, only octogenarian in shape, instead of square. Alice got all right there because you cannot think much about ghosts and nonsense when the sun is shining bang down on you at four o clock in the afternoon, and you can see red farm roofs between the trees, and the safe white roads, with people in carts like black ants crawling. It was very jolly, but we felt we ought to be getting back, because tea is at do face masks protect you five, and we could not hope to find qiancheng nose guard face shield, protective face mask l5 small size lifts both ways. So we started to go down. Dicky went first, then Oswald, then Alice and H. O. had just stumbled over the top step and saved himself by Alice s back, which nearly upset Oswald and Dicky, when the hearts of all stood still, and then went on by leaps and bounds, like the good work in missionary magazines. For, down below us, in the tower where the man whose beard grew down to his toes after he was dead was buried, there was a noise a loud noise. And it was like a door being banged and bolts fastened. We tumbled over each other to get back into the open sunshine on the top of the tower, and Alice s hand got jammed face mask for dust protection between the edge of the doorway and H. O. s boot it was bruised black and blue, and another part bled, but she did not notice it till long after. We looked at each other, and Oswald said in a firm voice at least, I hope it was What was that He HAS waked up, Alice said. Oh, I know he has. Of course there is a door for him to get out by when he wakes. He ll come up here. I know he will. Dicky said, and his voice was not at all firm I noticed that at the time , It doesn t matter, if he s ALIVE. Unless he s come to life a raving lunatic, Noel said, and we all stood with our eyes on the doorway of the turret and held our breath to hear. But there was no more noise. Then Oswald said and nobody ever put it in the Golden Deed book, though they own that it was brave and noble of him he sa.
