The interpreters finished their explanations, and the company retired with the salaams walgreens disposable face mask of the crowd. It was very late when they retired to rest that night. CHAPTER XXI JUGGERNAUT AND JUGGLERS The next day was Sunday, and none of the party appeared in the parlor till quite late not because it was the Sabbath, but because they were all very tired, even the four lively boys, who had done more sightseeing than the rest of the tourists. They were always on the wing, and while the older ones rested, they always found some novelty which drew them away from the hotel. Of the four servants only two attended upon them. They had practically retired two of them with some difficulty when they were away from the party, for they were a nuisance to them, so many of them. Sayad and Moro were retained, however for they were more intelligent than the others, spoke English better, and were more enterprising, frequently suggesting some means of amusement to them. They were interested in the boys and girls, and Sayad told Louis and Felix all about them, about their homes, their schools, their sports and Moro did the same for Scott and Morris. On this Sunday they were conducted to a Sunday school of two hundred scholars, under the direction of the missionaries, though the teachers are mostly natives. It was a strange sight to them, the variety of races, the strange costumes, and the absence of any considerable portion of costume at all. There were Mohammedans, Chinamen, negroes, Jews, and a few Europeans. They fell in with the missionary from England, who told them a good deal about their work, and how interested they were in it, declaring that they could see the fruits of their labors, detailing a number of instances of conversions. They had a day school also, and they hired a strict Hindu because he taught English so well. He hated the Christians, and did his work only because he was paid for it but he had to listen to the prayers and exhortations, and finally he yielded in spite of himself, and became a very useful Christian minister. This gentleman said that the number of Christians in India had doubled within ten years. He invited the party to come to the church, and the boys hastened back to the hotel to tell their friends about it. They all went to this meeting, including their three distinguished guides. The service was about the same as at home, the clergyman was a native of the Brahmin caste, and he preached a very earnest and sensible sermon. The funds of th.ped rustling after our sitting down, Dicky said I hope it s nothing to do with the Wouldbegoods No, said Denny in a hurry quite the opposite. I hope it s nothing wrong, said Dora and Daisy together. It s it s Hail to thee, blithe spirit bird thou never wert , said Denny. I mean, I think it s what is called a lark. You never know your luck. Go on, Dentist, said Dicky. Well, then, do 3m face mask virus protection you know a book called The Daisy Chain We didn t. It s by Miss Charlotte M. Yonge, Daisy interrupted, and it s about a family of poor motherless children who tried so hard to be good, and they were confirmed, and had a bazaar, and went to church at the Minster, and one of them got married and wore black watered silk and silver ornaments. So her baby died, and then she was sorry she had not been a good mother to it. And Here Dicky got up 3m face mask virus protection and said he d got some snares to attend to, and he d receive a report of the Council after it was over. But he only got as far as the trap medical aesthetic supply blue light face mask 3m face mask virus protection door, and then Oswald, the fleet of foot, closed with him, and they rolled together on the floor, while all the others called out Come back Come back like guinea hens on a fence. Through the rustle and bustle and hustle of the struggle with Dicky, Oswald heard the voice of Denny murmuring one of his everlasting quotations Come back, come back he cried in Greek, Across the stormy water, And I ll forgive your Highland cheek, My daughter, O my daughter When quiet was restored and Dicky had agreed to go through with the Council, Denny said The Daisy Chain is not a bit like that really. It s a ripping book. One of the boys dresses up like a lady and comes to call, and another tries to hit his little sister with a hoe. It s jolly fine, I tell you. Denny is learning to say what he thinks, just like other boys. He would never have learnt such words as medical face masks career implications ripping and jolly fine while under the auntal tyranny. Since then I have read The Daisy Chain. It is a first rate book for girls and little boys. But we did not want to talk about The Daisy Chain just then, so Oswald said But what s your lark Denny got pale pink and said Don t hurry me. I ll tell you directly. Let me think a minute. Then he shut his pale pink eyelids a moment in thought, and then opened them and stood up on the straw and said very fast Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend 3m face mask virus protection me your ears, or if not ears, pots. You know Albert s uncle said they were going to open the barrow, to look for Roman remains to morrow. Don t you think it seems a pity they shouldn t find any Perhaps they will, Dora said. But Osw.
beg you will not regard my proposition as anything in the shape of a recompense for all our fortunes and all our time for years to come would not be an adequate return for face masks for medical reasons the immeasurable service you have rendered to us, protested the viscount. We have all been delighted with the manner in which we have been entertained on board of the Guardian Mother and without regard to our rescue from the very jaws of death, I declare, upon my honor as a gentleman, that you have won our hearts, you, Mr. Commander, and all connected with you on board. Amen shouted Dr. Ferrolan in a burst of enthusiasm. So say we all of us cried Sir Modava. Now permit me to say in all sincerity, that if our acquaintance had begun when we set foot on the deck of your ship, and the noble conduct of the ship s company were entirely obliterated from our memories, we should feel as we do now, said Lord Tremlyn. So say we all of us, sang the doctor with Sir Modava. I may say that if I had gone on board of the Guardian Mother for the first time in the harbor of Bombay, I should have felt the same, and had just as strong a desire to assist you in seeing India. When gentlemen of education and character come here from England, the officials give them a warm welcome, and do their 3m face mask virus protection best to enable them to see the country, its manners and customs, and its institutions, to the best advantage. We should do the same with Americans and I account myself fortunate in being the first to greet you, and welcome you to India. The other two heartily responded to the sentiments of the speaker, and the commander could say no more. By this time the steamer was in the midst of the fishing boats and other craft. Louis called for three cheers for the guests, and they were given with vigor and sincerity. The party separated, and its members gave themselves up to an examination of the surroundings. CHAPTER XV ARRIVAL OF THE GUARDIAN MOTHER AT BOMBAY The coast of Bombay was in plain sight, the province, or state, whose capital has the same name. Groves of cocoanut, date, and other palm trees bordered it and far back of it was a range of mountains, the Western Ghats, a chain extending for hundreds of miles along the shore, though from twenty to fifty miles from it. The fishing boats were Oriental, and nothing new to the tourists but the men in them were swarthy looking fellows, not abundantly provided with clothing. The greater portion of India has a warm climate, and the dress of the people is adapted to it. For the most part, the natives are bundled up in loose.men, he began, I have no claim upon you for the exceeding warmth of the reception you have given me, and I thank you with all my heart for all your kindness to 3m face mask virus protection me, a shipwrecked stranger on board of your ship. I shall give you as briefly and clearly as I can what I know about the 3m face mask virus protection geography of India. I understand that this was the subject to be treated by Captain Ringgold and I am confident that he could have done it quite as well as I can, though I am to the manner born. But I will proceed with the subject, without wasting any more of your valuable time. India is a vast territory, forming the southern peninsula of Asia, with a population, including the native states, of very nearly two hundred and fifty four million people, continued the speaker, taking a paper from his pocket. I have received a hint from your worthy commander that I ought to give a comparison of my figures with those of the United States, and our population is about four times as great as that of your country. The area in square miles is more than a million and a half, enough larger than your country to cover the State of Georgia and the speaker indulged in a cheerful smile. I did not know what I am saying now till this morning for I have been studying the Statesman s Year Book, in order to comply with the commander s request. The name of India came originally from the Persians, and was first applied to the territory about the Sindhu River, its Sanscrit name, the early literary language of India. A slight change, and the river was called the Hind, which is still the language of the natives, while the country around it is Hind, from which comes Hindu, and Hindustan but these designations really belong to a province, though they are now given very generally to the whole peninsula, continued Sir Modava, turning to the enormous map which had been painted by Mr. Gaskette and his assistants. Hind, or Hindustan, is the territory near the Jumna and Ganges Rivers, of which more will be said later, as he pointed out these great watercourses, and then drew his pointer around Sind, now called Sinde, on the border of Beloochistan. How do you spell Hindustan, Sir Modava inquired Mrs. Belgrave. We used to write it Hindoostan when I went to school. I think the orthography of the word is a matter of fashion, for the letter u in most European and Asiatic languages is pronounced like the English oo but it is now almost universally spelled with a u. It is now almost generally absorbed in the name of India, and the application of the term to the whole.very active both in mind and body. Too many for one boat in a heavy sea, added Captain Ringgold. You will clear away the second cutter, Mr. Scott, and follow Mr. Boulong to the wreck. All the second cutters aft shouted the third officer from the window and the crew of this boat rushed up the ladder to the promenade deck, and followed the life line to the davits of the cutter. Bargate, who pulls the stroke 3m face mask virus protection oar in the second cutter, has the rheumatism in his right arm, and is not fit to go in the boat, interposed Mr. Gaskette, the second officer. Let me take his place, Captain Ringgold eagerly exclaimed Louis Belgrave. Do you think you can pull an oar in a heavy seaway, Mr. Belgrave asked the commander, who always treated the owner with entire respect in the presence of others, cute medical face mask walmart though he called him by his given name when they were alone. I know I can replied Louis very confidently. I do not object, if Mr. Scott is willing. I am very willing, for Mr. Belgrave s muscle is as hard as a flint. Very well. Hurry up added the captain. Four other men were sent aft to assist in the preparations for putting the second cutter into the water and in as short a time as Mr. Gaskette, who usually went in that boat on important occasions, would have required to do it, the cutter was ready to be dropped into the water when the order was given. The captain and the second officer continued to watch the party on the wreck, expecting every moment to see some of them swept into the savage waves that beat against their frail support. The ship went at full speed on her course for the commander would not waste an instant while the lives of so many human beings depended upon his action. Can you make out what they are clinging to, Mr. Gaskette asked the commander of the only person besides the two quartermasters who remained with him in the pilot house. Yes, sir I am just getting an idea in regard to it, though the thing is awash so that I can hardly make it out, replied the second officer. I think it is 3m face mask virus protection the bottom of a rather small vessel, upside down for I see something like a keel. The party have two ropes stretched the whole length of the bottom, to which they are clinging. You are right that is plainly the bottom of a vessel, and I wonder that the craft has not gone down by this time. How she happens to be in that situation, and why she has not sunk, are matters yet to be explained. Go aft, if you please, and see that both cutters are ready to be lowered into the water, 3m face mask virus protection Mr. Gaskette. It is not prudent to go much nearer to.
3m Face Mask Virus Protection e and terror. The children went through the arch with a quickness born of long practice. But Jane stayed in the middle of the arch and looked back. The others, standing on the dining room carpet in Fitzroy Street, turned and saw her still in the arch. Someone s holding her, cried Cyril. We must go back. But they pulled at Jane s hands just to see if she would come, and, of course, she did come. Then, as usual, the arch was little again and there they all were. Oh, I do wish you hadn t Jane said crossly. It WAS so interesting. The priest had come in and he was kicking the soldier, and telling him he d done it now, and they must take the jewels and flee for their lives. And did they I don t know. You interfered, said Jane ungratefully. I SHOULD have liked to see the last of it. As a matter of fact, none of them had seen the last of it if 3m face mask virus protection by it Jane meant the adventure of the Priest and the Soldier. CHAPTER 12. THE SORRY PRESENT AND THE EXPELLED LITTLE BOY Look here, said Cyril, sitting on the dining table and swinging his legs I really have got it. Got what was the not unnatural rejoinder of the others. Cyril was making a boat with a penknife and a piece of wood, and the girls were making warm frocks for their dolls, for the weather was growing chilly. Why, don t you see It s really not any good our going into the Past looking for that Amulet. The Past s as full of different times as as the sea is of sand. We re simply bound to hit upon the wrong time. We might spend our lives looking for the Amulet and never see a sight of it. Why, it s the end of September already. It s like looking for a needle in A bottle of hay I know, interrupted Robert but if we don t go on doing that, what ARE we to do That s just it, said Cyril in mysterious accents. Oh, BOTHER Old Nurse had come in 3m face mask virus protection with the tray of knives, forks, and glasses, and was getting the tablecloth and table napkins out of the chiffonier drawer. disposable vr face mask It s always meal times just when you come to anything interesting. And a nice interesting handful YOU D Airsoft Full Face Ear Protection Fencing Mask Tan be, Master Cyril, said old Nurse, 3m face mask virus protection if I wasn t to bring your meals up to camo coll outdoor anti-mosquito mask hat with head net mesh face protection time. Don t you begin grumbling now, fear you get something to grumble AT. I wasn t grumbling, said Cyril quite untruly but it does always happen like that. You deserve to HAVE something happen, said old Nurse. Slave, slave, slave for you day and night, and never a word of thanks Why, you do everything beautifully, said Anthea. It s the first time any of you s troubled to say so, anyhow, said Nurse shortly. What s the use of SAYIN.nearer to the Amulet, warm from the neck of Jane. And then, as one drop of water mingles with another on a rain wrinkled window pane, as one bead of quick silver is drawn into another bead, Rekh mara s Amulet slipped into the other one, and, behold there was no more but the one Amulet Black magic cried Rekh mara, and sprang forward to snatch the Amulet fishing hat with sun protection face mask and mosquito net that had swallowed his. But Anthea caught it up, and at the same moment the Priest was jerked back by a rope thrown over his head. It drew, tightened with the pull of his forward leap, and bound his elbows to his sides. Before he had time to use his strength to free himself, Robert had knotted the cord behind him and tied it to the bedpost. Then the four children, overcoming the priest s wrigglings and kickings, tied his legs with more rope. I thought, said Robert, breathing hard, and drawing the last knot tight, he d have a try for OURS, so I got the ropes out of the box room, so as to be ready. The girls, with rather white faces, applauded his foresight. Loosen these bonds cried Rekh mara in fury, before I blast you with medical supply face masks the seven secret curses of Amen Ra We shouldn t be likely to loose them AFTER, Robert retorted. Oh, don t quarrel said Anthea desperately. Look here, he has just as much right to the thing as we have. This, she took up the Amulet that had swallowed the other one, this has got his in it as well as being ours. Let s go shares. Let me go cried the Priest, writhing. Now, look here, said Robert, if you make a row we can just open that window and call the police the guards, you know and tell them you ve been trying to rob us. NOW will you shut up and listen to reason I suppose so, said Rekh mara sulkily. But reason could not be spoken to him till a whispered counsel had been held in the far corner by the washhand stand and the towel horse, a counsel rather long and very earnest. At last Anthea detached herself from the group, and went back to the Priest. Look here, she said in her kind little voice, we want to be friends. We want to help you. Let s make a treaty. Let s join together to get the Amulet the whole one, I mean. And then it shall belong to you as much as to us, and we shall all get our hearts desire. Fair words, said the Priest, grow no onions. WE say, Butter no parsnips , Jane put in. But don t you see we WANT to be fair Only we want to bind you in the chains of honour and upright dealing. Will you deal fairly by us said Robert. I will, said the Priest. By the sacred, secret name that is written under the Altar of Amen Ra, I.
