Cool Protection Face Mask . You say, Cyril go ahead. We re very sorry to disturb you, said Cyril politely, but we did knock three times, and you didn t say Come in , or Run away now , or that you couldn t be bothered just now, or to come when you weren t so busy, or any of the things people do say when you knock at doors, so we opened it. We knew you were in because we heard you sneeze while we were waiting. Not at all, said the gentleman do sit down. He has found out there are four of us, said Robert, as the gentleman cleared three more chairs. He put the things off them carefully on the floor. The first chair had things like bricks that tiny, tiny birds feet have walked over when the bricks were soft, only the marks were in regular lines. The second chair had round things on it like very large, fat, long, pale beads. And the last chair had a pile of dusty papers on it. The children sat down. We know you are very, very learned, said Cyril, and we have got a charm, and we want you to read the name on it, because amazon 100 pcs disposable face masks by vigor fusion it isn t in Latin or Greek, or Hebrew, or any of the languages WE know A thorough knowledge of even those languages is disposable construction face mask pack a very fair foundation on which to build an education, said the gentleman politely. Oh said Cyril blushing, but we only know them to look at, except Latin and I m only in Caesar with that. The gentleman took off his spectacles and laughed. His laugh sounded rusty, Cyril thought, as though it wasn t often used. Of course he said. I m sure I beg your pardon. I think I must have been in a dream. You are the children who live disposable face mask downstairs, are you not Yes. I have seen you as I have passed in and out. And you have found something that you think to be an antiquity, and you ve brought it to show me That was very kind. I should like to inspect it. I m afraid we didn t think about your liking to inspect it, said the truthful Anthea. It was just for US because we wanted to know the name on it Oh, yes and, I say, Robert interjected, you won t think it rude of us if we ask you first, before we show it, to be bound in the what do you call it of In the bonds of honour and cool protection face mask upright dealing, said Anthea. I m afraid I don t quite follow you, said the gentleman, with gentle nervousness. Well, it s this way, said Cyril. We ve got part of a charm. And 50pcs disposable medical dustproof surgical face mouth masks ear loop the Sammy I mean, something told us it would work, though it s only half a one but it won t work unless we can say the name that s on it. But, of course, if you ve got another name that can lick ours, our charm will be no go so we want you to give us your word of honour as a.found the cavalry drawn up and presenting arms. The elephants were made to kneel down as when the party mounted them, and they descended by means of ladders. A host of servants ushered them into the palace, which Lord Tremlyn said had been appropriated to their use. Their luggage had already been sent cancer protective and preventive outdoor invisible face mask to their apartments and an hour later the company assembled in the grand salon, dressed to receive the Guicowar. His Highness did not put on any style this time, and was as sociable as any common person. He saluted the commander and Mrs. Belgrave and then all the rest of the party were presented to him face mask disposable white medical large size by the viscount, and Mrs. Blossom had nearly shaken herself to pieces during the ceremony. A bountiful collation was then served in another apartment, at which the Maharajah presided. He spoke English as fluently as any person present, and was very affable to all. The Italian band played during the repast, and the Guicowar declared that it was the finest music he had ever heard. General Noury had been placed on his right as the one highest in rank of any present. The king proved himself to be exceedingly well informed in regard to the United States, and was even able to talk intelligently with the gentlemen about Morocco. Though he had a wife, a mother, and a young daughter, they were never presented to the gentlemen of the party, though the ladies were permitted to make their acquaintance, and learned more from them about Hindu domestic life than they could have obtained from any others. To morrow will be a great day in Baroda, said Sir Modava to the commander. It is the great Sowari, a procession such as none of your people ever saw, I will venture to say and his Highness has provided places for all of you where you can see the whole of it in detail. The king announced this great state occasion himself before the lunch was finished, and gave the visitors a cordial invitation to witness the procession. The Big Four, a term of which the viscount and Sir Modava had already learned the meaning, were very impatient to do some hunting. They had brought their guns with them, and Louis informed the Hindu gentleman of their desire. Is there any place near the palace where we could find any game he inquired. Not in the palace grounds, but within a few miles of it a very rugged region may be reached, and a road wagon will be provided for you. I will speak to the Guicowar about it, replied Sir Modava and he broached the subject at once. In half an hour a vehicle was at the door and the boys were ready, dressed cool protection face mask fo.
ship. The women of this sect here do not veil their faces as a rule. They are quite good looking, added the New York magnate. What caste or class do they belong to I should say they were in the Vaisya caste, agriculture and trade. They are well dressed, and cool protection face mask therefore not Sudra. Probably they are the wife and daughter of a shopkeeper. What is this crowd in the square asked Morris, who had been looking about him. We will drive over there and see, replied the viscount as he directed the coachman. Festival of Serpents, said the cool protection face mask driver through the window. You have an opportunity to see one of the sights of Bombay but we shall be obliged to leave the carriages, for it is a great performance, and there will be a large crowd. They alighted at a convenient place, and moved towards the square. The ladies were in doubt as to whether or not they cared to see such an exhibition but the three gentlemen who were accustomed to them declared that there was no danger. This affair is in the nature of a religious festival, said Sir Modava. There are scores of snakes brought before you but they have had their poison fangs extracted, and they could not harm you much more than a full face fabric protective mask playful kitten. This is a day appointed to make prayers and offerings to the snakes, in order to conciliate them and to insure immunity from their bites. Though these occasions occur all over India, I don t believe there is a single bite the less for them. It is the anniversary of the killing of the great serpent Bindrabund, which was creating terrible havoc on the shores of the river Jumna, an event in Hindu mythology, which is as true as any mythology, added Lord Tremlyn. You observe that it calls together a great crowd of people of all classes, and you see fat Brahmin ladies here in palanquins, very richly dressed, and looking as sweet as sugar. You notice the rich standards and the torches, the trumpeters, and the girls playing on tom toms and cymbals. But we must get nearer to the centre of the show. Not too near, pleaded Mrs. Woolridge. The crowd opened for the sahibs and the ladies, treating them with the utmost deference, as though they were superior beings and they obtained a position where they could see the entire performance. A group of sapwallahs, or serpent charmers, each bearing a basket about fifteen inches in diameter at the bottom, but not more than ten at the top, each containing several cobras, marched into the centre of the crowd. Pious Hindus brought forward bowls of the milk of buffaloes, of which the serpents are very fond.t. What he had forgotten was that his father was 3,000 miles and 5,000 or more years away from cool protection face mask him. All right, Bobs, old man, said Cyril and Anthea got hold of Robert s hand and squeezed it. Then the gaoler came back with a platter of hard, flat cakes made of coarse grain, very different from the cream and juicy date feasts of the palace disposable medical face masks also a pitcher of water. There, he said. Oh, thank you so very much. You ARE kind, said Anthea feverishly. Go to sleep, said the gaoler, cool protection face mask pointing to a heap of straw in a corner tomorrow comes soon enough. Oh, dear Mr Gaoler, said Anthea, whatever will they do to us tomorrow They ll try to make you tell things, said the gaoler grimly, and my advice is if you ve nothing to tell, make up something. Then perhaps they ll sell you to the Northern nations. Regular savages THEY are. Good night. Good night, said three trembling voices, which their owners strove in vain to render firm. Then he went out, and the three were left alone in the damp, dim vault. I know the light won t last long, said Cyril, looking at the flickering brazier. Is it any good, do you think, calling on the name when we haven t got the charm suggested Anthea. I shouldn t think so. But we might try. So they tried. But the blank silence of the damp dungeon remained unchanged. What was the name the Queen said asked Cyril suddenly. Nisbeth Nesbit something You know, the slave of the great names Wait a sec, said Robert, though I don t know why you want it. Nusroch Nisrock Nisroch that s it. Then Anthea pulled herself together. All her muscles tightened, and the muscles of her mind and soul, if you can call them that, tightened cool protection face mask too. UR HEKAU SETCHEH, she cried in a fervent voice. Oh, Nisroch, servant of the Great Ones, come and help us There was a waiting silence. Then a cold, blue light awoke in the corner where the straw was and in the light they saw coming towards them a strange and terrible figure. I won t try to describe it, because the drawing shows it, exactly as it was, and exactly as the old Babylonians carved it on their stones, so that you can see it in our own British Museum at this day. I will just say that it had eagle s wings and an eagle s head and the body of a man. It came towards them, strong and unspeakably horrible. Oh, go away, cried cool protection face mask Anthea but Cyril cried, No stay The creature hesitated, then bowed low before them on the damp floor of the dungeon. Speak, it said, in a harsh, grating voice like large rusty keys being turned in locks. The servant of the Great Ones is YOUR servant. What i.arned in Funchal that his character was very bad, and he told him so to his face. When the commander went on shore he was attacked in the street by the Pacha and some of his followers but the stalwart captain knocked him with a blow of his fist in a gutter filled with mud. Ali Noury was fined by the court for the assault, and, thirsting for revenge, he had followed the Guardian Mother to Constantinople, and through the Archipelago, seeking the vengeance his evil nature demanded. He employed a man named Mazagan to capture Miss Blanche or Louis, or both of them. Captain Sharp, who was cruising in the Viking with his wife, while at Messina found the Pacha beset by robbers, and badly wounded. The ex detective took him on board of his steamer, procured a surgeon, and saved the life of the Moor, not only in beating off the robbers that beset him, but in the care of him after he was wounded. They became strong friends and both the captain and Mrs. Sharp, who had been the most devoted of nurses to him, spoke their minds to him very plainly. The Pacha was repentant, for his vices were as contrary to the religion of Mohammed as to that of the New Testament. Captain Sharp was confident that his guest was thoroughly reformed, though he did not become a Christian, as his nurse hoped he would. Then his preserver learned that the Pacha had settled his accounts with Captain Mazagan, and sold him the Fatim. It appeared when Captain Sharp told his story to the commander of the Guardian Mother at Aden, that Mazagan had been operating on his own hook in Egypt and elsewhere to blackmail the trustee of Louis. The Pacha had ordered a new steamer to be built for him in England and when she arrived at Gibraltar, he had given the command of her to Captain Sharp, to whom he owed his life and reformation. At Aden, Captain Ringgold discovered the white steamer, and fearing she was the one built for the Pacha, as Mazagan cool protection face mask had informed him in regard to her, he paid her a visit, and found Captain Sharp in command of her. The Moor was known as General Noury here, and he made an abject apology to the visitor. Convinced that the Moor had really reformed his life, they were reconciled, and General Noury was received with favor by all the party. The Blanche was sailing in company of the Guardian Mother for Bombay when the wreck with several men on it was discovered. And now having reviewed the incidents of the past, fully related in the preceding volumes of the series, it is quite time to attend to the imperilled persons on the wreck
Cool Protection Face Mask others followed, and the door was shut. Blowed if I can make it out they heard. I m off home, I am. And the crowd, coming slowly to the same mind, dispersed, followed by another crowd of persons who were not dressed in what the Queen thought was the cool protection face mask proper way. We shall have the police here directly, said Anthea in the tones of despair. Oh, why did you come dressed like that The Queen leaned against the arm of the horse hair sofa. How else can a queen dress I should like to know she questioned. Our Queen wears things like other people, said Cyril. Well, I don t. And I must say, she remarked in an injured tone, that you don t seem very glad to see me now I HAVE come. But perhaps it s the surprise that makes you behave like this. Yet you ought to be used to surprises. The way you vanished I shall never forget it. The best magic I ve ever seen. How did you do it Oh, never mind about that now, said Robert. You see you ve gone and upset all those people, and I expect they ll fetch the police. And we don t want to see you collared and put in prison. You can t put queens in prison, she said loftily. Oh, can t you said Cyril. We cut off a king s head here once. In this miserable room How frightfully interesting. No, no, not in this room in history. Oh, in THAT, said the Queen disparagingly. I thought you d done it with your own hands. The girls shuddered. What a hideous city yours is, the Queen went on pleasantly, and what horrid, ignorant people. Do you know they actually can t understand a single word I say. Can you understand them asked Jane. Of course not they speak some vulgar, Northern dialect. I can understand YOU quite well. I really am not going to explain AGAIN how it was that the children could understand other languages than their own so thoroughly, and talk them, too, so that it felt and sounded to them just as though they were talking English. Well, said Cyril bluntly, now you ve seen just how horrid it is, don t you think you might as well go home again Why, I ve seen simply nothing yet, said the Queen, arranging her starry veil. I wished to be at your door, and I was. Now I must go and see your King and Queen. Nobody s allowed to, said Anthea in haste but look here, we ll take you and show you anything you d like to see anything you CAN see, she added kindly, because she remembered how nice the Queen had been to them in Babylon, even if she had been a little deceitful in the matter wonder woman disposal face mask of Jane and Psammead. There s the Museum, said Cyril hopefully there are lots of things from your country the.added, glancing across the market place to where an enormous gateway with huge side buildings towered towards the sky. To right and left of it were other buildings only a little less magnificent. Did you wish to seek out the Temple of Amen Ra asked a soft voice behind them, or the Temple of Mut, or the Temple of Khonsu They turned to find beside them a young man. He was shaved clean from head to foot, and on his feet were light papyrus sandals. He was clothed in a linen tunic of white, embroidered heavily in colours. He was gay with anklets, bracelets, and armlets of gold, richly inlaid. He wore a ring on his finger, and he had a short jacket cool protection face mask of gold embroidery something like the Zouave soldiers wear, and on his neck was a gold collar with many amulets hanging from it. But among the amulets the children could see none like theirs. It doesn t matter which Temple, said Cyril frankly. Tell me your mission, said the young man. I am a divine father of the Temple of Amen Ra and perhaps I can help you. Well, said Cyril, we ve come from the great cool protection face mask Empire on which the sun never sets. I thought somehow that you d come from some odd, out of the way spot, said the priest with courtesy. And disposable vr face mask we ve seen a good many palaces. We thought we should like to see a Temple, for a change, said Robert. The Psammead stirred uneasily in its embroidered bag. Have you brought gifts to the Temple asked the priest cautiously. We HAVE got some gifts, said Cyril with equal caution. You see there s magic mixed up in it. So we can t tell you everything. But we don t want to give our gifts for nothing. Beware how you insult the god, said the priest sternly. I also can do magic. I can make a waxen image of you, and I can say words which, as the wax image melts before the fire, will make you dwindle away and at last perish miserably. Pooh said Cyril stoutly, that s nothing. I can make FIRE itself I should jolly well like to see you do it, said the priest unbelievingly. Well, you shall, said Cyril, nothing easier. Just stand close round me. Do you need no preparation no fasting, no incantations The priest s tone was incredulous. The incantation s quite short, said Cyril, taking the hint and as for fasting, it s not needed in MY sort of magic. union Jack, Printing Press, Gunpowder, Rule Britannia Come, Fire, at the end of this little stick He had pulled a match from his pocket, and as he cool protection face mask ended the incantation which contained no words that it seemed likely the Egyptian had ever heard he stooped in the little crowd of his relations and the.
