Protective Face Mask Amazon e mad on her dress, and screaming almost as loud as the Baby. Then she began to laugh and to cry at the same time. This is called hysterics. Oswald was sorry, but he was annoyed too. He had forgotten that his pocket was half full of the meal worms the miller had kindly given him. And, anyway, Dora ought to have known that a man always carries his knife in his trousers pocket and not in his jacket one. Alice does a face mask protect others from my cold? and Daisy rushed to Dora. She had thrown herself down on the pile of sacks in the corner. The titled infant delayed its screams for a moment to listen to Dora s, but almost at once it went on again. Oh, get some water said Alice. Daisy, run The White Mouse, ever docile and obedient, shoved the baby into the arms of the nearest person, who had to take it or it would have fallen a wreck to the ground. This nearest person was Oswald. He tried to pass it on to the others, but they wouldn t. Noel would have, but he was busy kissing Dora and begging her not to. So our hero, for such I may perhaps term him, found himself the degraded nursemaid of a small but furious kid. He was afraid to lay it down, for fear in its rage it should beat its brains out against the hard earth, and he did not wish, however innocently, to be the cause of protective face mask amazon its hurting itself at all. So he walked earnestly up and down with it, thumping it unceasingly on the back, while the others attended to Dora, who presently ceased to yell. Suddenly it struck Oswald that the High born also had ceased to yell. He looked at it, and could hardly believe the glad tidings of his faithful eyes. With bated breath he hastened back to the sheep house. The others turned on him, full of reproaches about the meal worms and Dora, but he answered without anger. Shut up, he said in a whisper of imperial command. Can t you see it s GONE TO SLEEP As exhausted as if they had all taken part in all the protective face mask amazon events of a very long Athletic Sports, the youthful Bastables and their friends dragged their weary limbs back across the fields. Oswald was compelled to go on holding the titled infant, for fear it should wake up if it changed hands, and begin to yell again. Dora s flannelette petticoat had been got off somehow how I do not seek protective face mask amazon to inquire and the Secret was covered with it. The others surrounded Oswald as much as possible, with a view to concealment if we met Mrs Pettigrew. But the coast was clear. Oswald took the Secret up into his bedroom. Mrs Pettigrew doesn t come there much, it s too many stairs. With breathless precaution Oswald laid it down on his bednearer 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 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 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 disposable cooling face mask 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.
, oaks and other trees. On the banks are flowers yarrow, meadow sweet, willow herb, loosestrife, and lady s bed straw. Oswald learned the names of all these trees and plants on the day of the picnic. The others didn t remember them, but Oswald did. He is a boy of what they call relenting memory. The anglers were sitting here and there on the shady bank among the grass and the different flowers I have named. Some had dogs with them, and some umbrellas, and some had only their wives and families. We should have liked to talk to them and ask how they liked their lot, and what kinds of fish there were, and whether they were nice to eat, but we did not like to. Denny had seen anglers before and he knew they liked to be talked to, but though he protective face mask amazon spoke to them quite like to equals he did protective face mask amazon not ask the things we wanted to know. He just asked whether they d had any luck, and what bait they used. And they answered him back politely. I am glad I am not an angler. It is an immovable amusement, and, as often as not, no fish to speak of after all. Daisy and Dora had stayed at home Dora s foot was nearly well but they seem really to like sitting still. I think Dora likes to have a little girl to order about. Alice never would stand it. When protective face mask amazon we got to Stoneham Lock Denny said he should go home and fetch his fishing rod. H. O. went with him. This left four of us Oswald, Alice, Dicky, and Noel. We went on down the towing path. The lock shuts up that sounds as if it was like the lock on a door, but it is very otherwise between one pen of the river and the next the pen where the anglers were was full right up over the roots of the grass and flowers. But the pen below was nearly empty. You can see the poor river s bones, Noel said. And so you could. Stones and mud and dried branches, and here and there an old kettle or a tin pail with no bottom to it, that some bargee had chucked in. From walking so much along the river we knew many of the bargees. Bargees are the captains and crews of the big barges that are pulled up and down the river by slow horses. The horses do not swim. They walk on the towing path, with a rope tied to them, and the other end to the barge. So it gets pulled along. The bargees we knew were a good friendly sort, and used to let us go all over the barges when they were in a good temper. They were not at all the sort of bullying, cowardly fiends in human form that the young hero at Oxford fights a crowd of, single handed, in books. The river does not smell nice when its bones are showing. But we went a.e of Mr Jacob Absalom, who had sold them the charm in the shop protective face mask amazon near Charing Cross. Here is their Amulet, cried a harsh, strange voice it is this that makes them strong to fight and brave to die. And what else have we here surgical face mask for protection gods or demons He glared fiercely at the children, and the whites of his eyes were very white indeed. He had a wet, mesh wire full face protective mask - black red copper knife in his teeth. There was not a moment to lose. Jane, JANE, QUICK cried everyone passionately. Jane with trembling hands held up the charm towards the protective face mask amazon East, and Cyril spoke the word of power. The Amulet grew to a great arch. Out beyond it was the glaring Egyptian sky, the broken wall, the cruel, dark, big nosed face with the red, wet knife in its gleaming teeth. Within the arch was the dull, faint, greeny brown of London grass and trees. Hold tight, Jane Cyril cried, and he dashed through the arch, dragging Anthea and the Psammead after him. Robert followed, clutching Jane. And in the ears of each, as they passed through the arch of the charm, the sound and fury of battle died out suddenly and utterly, and they heard only the low, dull, discontented hum of vast London, and the peeking and patting of the sparrows on the gravel and the voices of the ragged baby children playing Ring o Roses on the yellow trampled grass. And the charm was a little charm again in Jane s hand, and there was the basket with their dinner and the bathbuns lying just where they had left it. My hat said Cyril, drawing a long breath that was something like an adventure. It was rather like one, certainly, said the Psammead. They all lay still, breathing in the safe, quiet air of Regent s Park. We d better go home at once, said Anthea presently. Old Nurse will be most frightfully anxious. The sun looks about the same as it did when we started yesterday. We ve been away twenty four hours. The buns are quite soft still, said Cyril, feeling one I suppose the dew kept them fresh. They were not hungry, curiously enough. They picked up the dinner basket and the Psammead basket, and went straight home. Old Nurse met them with amazement. Well, if ever I did she said. What s gone wrong You ve soon tired of your picnic. The children took this to be bitter irony, which means saying the exact opposite of what you mean in order to make yourself disagreeable as when you happen to have a dirty face, and someone says, How nice and clean you look We re very sorry, began Anthea, but old Nurse said Oh, bless me, child, I don t care Please yourselves and you ll please me. Come in and get your dinners., and placed them on the ground. The snakes were released from their confinement, and they made for the bowls of milk without any delay. Some of the tourists had never seen a cobra, though they are found in Egypt. The ladies shrank back when they appeared, and some of them shuddered at salt armour face mask shield protective balaclava bandana microfiber tube neck wa the sight of the reptiles. The body was somewhat enlarged near the head, and the spectacles could be distinctly seen in this part. The instruments played, the standards and the torches were waved but the snakes continued their milk feast undisturbed. The principal sapwallah had a wand in his hand, which he flourished while he repeated a volume of gibberish which none of the party but Sir Modava could understand. When Mrs. Belgrave asked what he said he replied that he was uttering invocations to the serpents, and entreating the whole tribe of snakes not to bite the people. One of the sapwallahs, who wore nothing but a turban protective face mask amazon on his head and face protection masks for safety a fringed cloth about his loins, went to one of the bowls from which half a dozen cobras were feeding, and taking hold of one of them, pulled him away from the milk. The serpent thus treated was furious with anger, and instantly opened out his hood, showing the spectacles in full. Another cobra was put in his place at the bowl, and his persecutor sat down on the ground with him, fooling with him as though he had been a kitten or a pet dog. In turn the snakes remaining in the baskets were released, and allowed to feast on the milk as others were removed. There was a great crowd of sapwallahs in charge of them, and none of them were permitted to escape. The reptiles showed their temper as they were taken from the milk by spreading their hoods but they were so skilfully manipulated that they had no chance to bite. I think I have had enough of this thing, said Mr. Woolridge, with a look of disgust on his face. There is no fun at all in it, and I should like to make them a target for my revolver. It is about time for tiffin, and we had better return to the hotel, added Lord Tremlyn. I shall keep you busy this afternoon and while you are resting you shall take in a Nautch dance, which is one of the institutions of this country. After that we shall go to the island of Elephanta. The live boys of the party were rather pleased with the spectacle, though they had had enough of it while the ladies, whose flesh had been crawling at the uncanny sight, were glad to escape. They all reached the hotel, and were hungry enough after the long jaunt of the forenoon to appreciate the tiffin. CHAPTER X.
Protective Face Mask Amazon G inquired Robert. We EAT our meals fast enough, and almost always two helps. THAT ought to show you Ah said old Nurse, going round the table and putting the knives and forks in their places you re a man all over, Master Robert. There was my poor Green, all the years he lived with protective face mask amazon me I never could get more out of him than It s all right when I asked him if he d fancied his dinner. And yet, when he lay a dying, his last words to me was, Maria, you was always a good cook She ended with a trembling voice. And so you are, cried Anthea, and she and Jane instantly hugged her. When she had gone out of the room Anthea said I know exactly how she feels. Now, look here Let s do a penance to show we re sorry we didn t think about telling her before what nice cooking she does, and what a dear she is. Penances are silly, said Robert. Not if the penance is something to please someone else. I didn t mean old peas and hair shirts and sleeping on the stones. I mean we ll make her a do lycra face masks protect against sun sorry present, explained Anthea. Look here I vote Cyril doesn t tell us his idea until we ve done something for old Nurse. It s worse for us than him, she added hastily, because he knows what it is and we don t. Do you all agree The others would have been ashamed not to agree, so they did. It was not till quite near the end of dinner mutton fritters and blackberry and apple pie that out of the earnest talk of the four came an idea that pleased everybody and would, they hoped, please Nurse. Cyril and Robert went out with the taste of apple still in their mouths and the purple of blackberries on their lips and, in the case of Robert, on the wristband as well and bought a big sheet of cardboard at the stationers. Then at the plumber s shop, that has tubes and pipes and taps and gas fittings in the window, they bought a pane of glass the same size as the cardboard. The man cut it with a very interesting tool that had a bit of diamond at the end, and he gave them, out of his own free generousness, a large piece of putty and a small piece of glue. While they were out the girls had what are face masks used caslled that protect against the flu floated four photographs of the four children off their cards in hot water. These were now stuck in a row along the top of the cardboard. Cyril put the glue to melt in a jampot, and put the jampot in a saucepan and saucepan on the fire, while Robert painted a wreath of poppies round the photographs. He painted rather well and very quickly, and poppies are easy to do if you ve once been shown how. Then protective face mask amazon Anthea drew some printed letters and Jane coloured them. The words.ay, so that his Father could be there. A birthday when there are only many happy returns is a little like Sunday or Christmas Eve. Oswald had a birthday card or two that was all but he did not repine, because he knew they always make it up to you for putting off keeping your birthday, and he looked forward to Saturday. Albert s uncle had a whole stack of letters as usual, and presently he tossed one over to Dora, and said, What do you say, little lady Shall we let them come But Dora, butter fingered as ever, missed the catch, and Dick and Noel both protective face mask amazon had a try for it, so that the letter went into the place where the bacon had been, and where now only a frozen looking lake of bacon fat was slowly hardening, and then somehow it got into the marmalade, and then H. O. got it, and Dora said I don t want the nasty thing now all grease and stickiness. So H. O. read it aloud MAIDSTONE SOCIETY OF ANTIQUITIES AND FIELD CLUB Aug. 14, 1900 DEAR SIR, At a meeting of the H. O. stuck fast here, and the writing was really very bad, like a spider that has been in the ink pot crawling in a hurry over the paper without stopping to rub its feet properly on the mat. So Oswald took the letter. He is above minding a little marmalade or bacon. He began to read. It ran thus It s not Antiquities, you little silly, he said it s Antiquaries. The other s a very good word, said Albert s uncle, and I never call names at breakfast myself it upsets the digestion, my egregious Oswald. That s a name though, said Alice, and you got it out of Stalky , too. Go on, Oswald. So Oswald went on where he had been interrupted MAIDSTONE SOCIETY OF ANTIQUARIES AND FIELD CLUB Aug. 14,1900. DEAR SIR, At a meeting of the Committee of this Society it was agreed that a field day should be held on Aug. 20, when the medical face mask material Society proposes to visit the protective face mask amazon interesting church of Ivybridge and also the Roman remains in the vicinity. Our president, Mr Longchamps, F.R.S., has obtained permission to open a barrow in the Three Trees pasture. We venture to ask whether you would allow the members of the Society to walk through your grounds and to inspect from without, of course your beautiful house, which is, as you are doubtless aware, of uv protection face mask great historic interest, having been for some years the residence of the celebrated Sir Thomas Wyatt. I am, dear Sir, yours faithfully, EDWARD K. TURNBULL Hon. Sec Just so, said Albert s uncle well, shall we permit the eye of the Maidstone Antiquities to profane these sacred solitudes, and the foot of the Field Club to kick up a dust.
