Sun Protection Face Mask For Sale ed fox master, has been with me since seven this morning. His tale, whatever outdoor full face mask pc lens hunting paintball airsoft tactical protective it is, will be independent evidence. But Denny would not speak, though again and again Albert s uncle told him to. I can t till I ve asked Oswald something, he said at last. White Whiskers said, That looks bad eh But Oswald said, Don t whisper, old chap. Ask me whatever you like, but speak up. So Denny said, I can t without breaking the secret oath. So then Oswald began to see, and he said, Break away for all you re worth, it s all right. And Denny said, drawing relief s deepest breath, Well then, Oswald and I have got a pistol shares and I had it last night. And when I couldn t sleep last night because of the toothache I got up and went out early this morning. And I took the pistol. And I loaded it just for fun. And down in the sun protection face mask for sale wood I heard a whining like a dog, and I went, and there was the poor fox caught in an iron trap with teeth. And I went to let it out and it bit me look, here s the place and the pistol went off and the fox died, and I am so sorry. But why didn t you tell the others They weren t awake when I went to the dentist s. But why didn t you tell your uncle if you ve been with him all the morning It was the oath, H. O. said May I be called a beastly sneak If this great secret I ever repeat. White Whiskers actually grinned. Well, he said, I will a face mask protect me from a cold? see it was an accident, my boy. Then he turned to us and said I owe you an apology for doubting your word all of you. I hope it s accepted. We said sun protection face mask for sale it was all right and he was to never mind. But all the same we hated him for it. He tried to make up for his unbelievingness afterwards by asking Albert s uncle to shoot rabbits but we did not really forgive him till the day when he sent the fox s brush to Alice, mounted in silver with a note about her plucky conduct in standing by her brothers. We got a lecture about not playing with firearms, but no punishment, because our conduct had not been exactly sinful, Albert s uncle said, but merely silly. The pistol and the cartridges were confiscated. I hope the house will never be attacked by burglars. When it is, Albert s uncle will only have himself to thank if we are rapidly overpowered, because it will be his fault that we shall have to meet them totally unarmed, and be their almost unresisting prey. CHAPTER 10. THE SALE OF ANTIQUITIES It began one morning at breakfast. It was the fifteenth of August the birthday of Napoleon the Great, Oswald Bastable, and another very nice writer. Oswald was to keep his birthday on the Saturd.while it out rivalled, the grand d no ucirc ment of a fairy spectacle on the stage. The procession of foreign guests were all seated in the most conspicuous divans for if Lord Tremlyn had been the Prince of Wales, he and his friends could hardly have been treated with greater distinction, as he was the unofficial representative of the predominating influence in the affairs of India near the throne of the United Kingdom and the Empire. The party were sun protection face mask for sale immediately beset with servants offering them fruit and sherbets, and they were sprinkled with rose water from silver flagons. The Nautch girls were not the same the tourists had seen earlier in the day. There were more of them, and they were of a finer grain in fact, the gentlemen, who were judges, declared that most of them were really pretty. They were seated on the floor in native fashion. They had great black eyes their complexion was only the least tawny, and was paler than it would have been if they had lived on a more invigorating diet than rice and fruits. There were half a dozen musicians, who played upon tom toms, instruments like a fiddle, and one that was very nearly a hurdy gurdy, with lutes and flutes. They gave the preliminary strains, and the dancers formed the semicircle. The performance was similar to that the party had seen at the hotel, though it was more finished, and the attitudes and posturing appeared to belong to a higher school of art than the other. But the whole was so nearly like what the strangers had seen before, that they were not absorbed by it, and gave more attention to the people attending the feast for they were an exceedingly interesting study to them. After the performance had continued about a quarter of an hour there was a pause, and the dancers retreated to a corner of the room, seating themselves again on the floor. At this moment Sahib Perbut came sun protection face mask for sale into the grand saloon leading a boy, who did not appear to be more than ten years old, by the hand. He was dressed in the most richly ornamented garments, and he was an exceedingly pretty little fellow. He was conducted to the viscount. Will your Lordship permit me to present to you and your friends my son Dinshaw, in whose honor I am making this feast This is Lord Tremlyn, my son, said the father, who was evidently very proud of the boy. Sahib Dinshaw, I am very happy to make your acquaintance, replied his lordship, as he rose and took the hand of the young gentleman, whom he introduced to every member of his party. They all followed the example of the viscount, an.
the United Kingdom, and all of them are inventions or gross exaggerations, replied Sir Modava, with his pleasant smile. Puri, or Juggernaut, is in the district of Orissa, on the western shore of the Bay of Bengal. It is one of the holiest places in India among the Hindus. It contains a temple of Juggernaut, in honor of Vishnu, in which is an idol of this Hindu god, called Jagannath, which is mentioned in history as far back as A.D. 318. Vishnu is the Preserver of the Hindu trinity, and therefore in an especial sense the god of the people and sometimes 100,000 natives gather at this shrine, bringing offerings to the value of nearly pound 40,000. The town has a population of twenty two thousand, and it contains six thousand lodging houses for the pilgrims who visit it. The chief temple has a hundred and twenty others in an enclosure, with a tower one hundred and ninety two feet high. Juggernaut s car, of which you have read, Mr. Scarburn, is a sort of temple, thirty five feet square, and forty five feet high, with wheels seven feet high. The car festival is the chief of twenty four held every year, when the idol is dragged to the country house. Though the distance is less than a mile, the sand is so deep in the roadway that it requires several days to complete the journey. The idols in the temple are sun protection face mask for sale hideous looking objects, with enormous eyes and crescent shaped mouths, the horns pointing upwards. But they are very richly ornamented for the idol has an income of over pound 30,000 from lands and religious houses. It used to be currently reported and believed that fanatical, crazy devotees cast themselves under the wheels of the car, and were crushed to death, immolating themselves as an offering to the god. But these statements have been strictly investigated, and branded as the calumnies of English writers. Two distinguished savants have declared that self immolation is utterly contrary to the worship of Juggernaut, the very unusual deaths at the car festival being almost invariably accidental. It is a great pity that these horrible stories were ever poured into the minds of children, and I am thankful that the libraries contain nothing of the kind now, added Uncle Moses. The company breakfasted with excellent appetites after the exercises of the morning and then Lord Tremlyn conducted them to the large saloon where the Nautch had been given, and they were astonished to find that one end of it was occupied by no less than fourteen men, not one of whom was more than half clothed, though the tom tom.ora broke a peaceful silence with this speech Free drinks. The words awoke a response in every breast. I wonder someone doesn t, H. O. said, leaning back till he nearly toppled in, and was only saved by Oswald and Alice at their own deadly peril. Do for goodness sake sit still, H. O., observed Alice. It would be a glorious act I wish WE could. What, sit still asked H. O. No, my child, replied Oswald, most of us can do that when we try. Your angel sister was only wishing to set up free drinks for the poor and thirsty. Not for all of them, Alice said, just a few. Change places now, Dicky. My feet aren t properly wet at all. It is very difficult to change places safely on the willow. The changers have to crawl over the laps of the others, while the rest sit tight and hold on for all they re worth. But the hard task was accomplished and then Alice went on And we couldn t do it for always, only a day or two just while our money held out. Eiffel Tower lemonade s the best, and you get a jolly lot of it for your money too. There must be a great many sincerely thirsty persons go along the Dover Road every day. It wouldn t be bad. We ve got a little chink between us, said Oswald. And then think how the poor grateful creatures would linger and tell us about their inmost sorrows. It would be most frightfully interesting. We could write all their agonied life histories down afterwards like All the Year Round Christmas numbers. Oh, do let s Alice was wriggling so with earnestness that Dicky thumped her to make her calm. We might do it, just for one day, Oswald said, but it wouldn t be much only a drop in the ocean compared with the enormous dryness of all the people in the whole world. Still, every little helps, as the mermaid said when she cried into the sea. I know a piece of poetry about that, Denny said. Small things are best. Care and unrest To wealth and rank are given, But little things On little wings do something or other, I forget what, sun protection face mask for sale but it means the same as Oswald was saying about the mermaid. What are you going to call it asked Noel, coming out of a dream. Call what The Free Drinks game. full face protection mask It s a horrid shame If the Free Drinks game Doesn t have a name. You would be to blame If anyone came And Oh, shut up remarked Dicky. You ve been making that rot up all the time we ve been talking instead of listening properly. Dicky hates poetry. I don t mind it so very much myself, especially Macaulay s and Kipling s and Noel s. There was a lot more lame and dame and name and game and things and now I ve forgott.ly, am I pardoned Is my innocence made plain As plain as it ever will be, I daresay, said Pharaoh shortly. sun protection face mask for sale Get along with you. You are pardoned. Go in peace. The priest went with lightning swiftness. And what, said the King suddenly, is it that moves in that sack Show me, oh strangers. There was nothing for it but to show the Psammead. Seize it, said Pharaoh carelessly. A very curious monkey. It will be a nice little novelty for my wild beast collection. And instantly, the entreaties of the children availing as little as the bites of the Psammead, though both bites and entreaties were fervent, it was carried away doctor face mask that protection against virus from before their eyes. Oh, DO be careful cried Anthea. At least medical face maskes with filter keep it dry Keep it in its sacred house She held up the embroidered bag. It s a magic creature, cried Robert it s simply priceless You ve no right to take it away, cried Jane incautiously. It s a shame, a barefaced robbery, that s what it is There was an awful silence. Then Pharaoh spoke. Take the sacred house of the beast from them, he said, and imprison all. Tonight after supper it may be our pleasure to see more magic. Guard them well, and do not torture them yet Oh, dear sobbed Jane, as they were led away. I knew exactly what it would be Oh, I wish you hadn t Shut up, silly, said Cyril. You know you WOULD come to Egypt. It was your own idea entirely. Shut up. It ll be all right. I thought we should play ball with queens, sobbed Jane, and have no end of larks And now everything s going to be perfectly horrid The room they were shut up in WAS a room, and not a dungeon, as the elder ones had feared. That, as Anthea said, was one comfort. There were paintings on the wall that at any other time would have been most interesting. And a sort of low couch, and chairs. When they were alone Jane breathed a sigh of relief. Now we can get home all right, she said. And leave the Psammead said Anthea reproachfully. Wait a sec. I ve got an idea, said Cyril. He pondered for a few moments. Then he began hammering on the heavy cedar door. It opened, and a guard put in his head. Stop that row, he said sternly, or Look here, Cyril interrupted, it s very dull for you isn t it Just doing nothing but guard us. Wouldn t face masks to protect against the sun you like to see some magic We re not too proud to do it for you. Wouldn t you like to see it I don t mind if I do, said the guard. Well then, you get us that monkey of ours that was taken away, and we ll show you. How do I know you re not making game of me asked the soldier. Shouldn t wonder if you only wanted to get the creature.
Sun Protection Face Mask For Sale lanation. Who are these visitors of yours Why this Red Indian method of paying morning calls Why the lurking attitude of the rest of the tribe which I now discern among the undergrowth Won t you ask the rest of the tribe to come out and join the glad throng Then I liked him better. I always like people who know the same songs we do, and books and tunes and things. The others came out. The lady looked very uncomfy, and partly as if she was going to cry. But she couldn t help laughing too, as more and more of us came out. And who, the clergyman went on, who in fortune s name is Albert And who is face masks respirators protection against influenza his uncle And what have they or you to do in this galere I mean garden We all felt rather silly, and I don t think I ever felt more than then what an awful lot there were of us. Three years absence in Calcutta or elsewhere may explain my ignorance of these details, but still I think we d better go, said Dora. I m sorry if we ve done anything rude or wrong. We didn t mean to. Good bye. I hope you ll be happy with the gentleman, I m sure. I HOPE so too, said Noel, and I know he was thinking how much nicer Albert s uncle was. We turned to go. The lady had been very silent compared with what she was when she pretended to show us Canterbury. But now she seemed to shake off some dreamy silliness, and caught hold of Dora by the shoulder. No, dear, no, she said, it s all right, and you must have some tea we ll have it on the lawn. John, don t tease them any more. Albert s uncle is the gentleman I told you about. And, my dear children, this is my brother that I haven t seen for three years. Then he s a long lost too, said H. O. The lady said Not now and smiled at him. And the rest of us were dumb with confounding emotions. Oswald was particularly sun protection face mask for sale dumb. He might have known it was her brother, because in rotten grown up books if a girl kisses a man sun protection face mask for sale in a shrubbery that is not the man you think she s in love with it always turns out to be a brother, though generally the disgrace of the family and medical face masks with designs toddler not a respectable chaplain from Calcutta. The lady now turned to her reverend and surprising brother and said, John, go and tell them we ll have tea on the lawn. When he was gone she stood quite still a minute. Then she medical face mask heb said, sun protection face mask for sale I m going to tell you something, but I want sun protection face mask for sale to put you on face mask protect from hunta virus your honour not to talk about it to other people. You see it isn t everyone I would tell about it. He, Albert s uncle, I mean, has told me a lot about you, and I know I can trust you. We said Yes , Oswald with a brooding sentiment of knowing all too w.hough it had been cut off. He spoke English as fluently as the general. He invited the party to step to a certain point, and view the mosque as a whole. The wall of the esplanade was a continued series of pointed arches, with a handsome frieze above it. On the elevated platform was a colonnade of the same arches on each side, with a pillared tower at each corner, interrupted only at the grand entrances. It looked as though one might walk entirely around the vast structure in the shade of this colonnade. Within the enclosure could be seen three domes, the one in the centre overtopping the other two, two lofty minarets, with small domes at the summit, supported by several columns, and an immense pointed arch leading into the great mosque. The whole edifice is built of red sandstone. The visitors mounted one of the staircases, and entered a court paved with marble tiles. They walked around the esplanade under the arches of the colonnade, or cloisters as some call them, and finally entered the mosque itself. The interior was very simple in its style, but very beautiful. The roof, pavement, pillars, and walls were of white marble, ornamented with carvings in the stone. Slabs of black marble presented sun protection face mask for sale sentences to the praise of God, and in memory of Shah Jehan, who was the founder of the mosque. Formerly no person not a Mussulman was permitted to enter this mosque, said Sir Modava, while the general and his host were engaged in their devotions but for more than thirty years it has been open to all. From the top of one of the minarets a very fine view of the surrounding country can be obtained but the ascent is by a very narrow flight of circular stairs, two hundred in number. He advised Dr. Hawkes and Uncle Moses not to attempt it. A venerable mollah was found, who put half a dozen of the party in the way of going up and they reported the view as worth the labor and fatigue. The aged priest then proposed to show them the relics of the mosque and a fee was paid to him, and to the man who unlocked a door for their admission. The mollah produced a small golden box, from which he took a silver case. Muttering the name of Allah very solemnly all the time, he unscrewed the top of the receptacle, and took from it a single hair, about six inches long, red and stiff, and fixed in a silver tube. The beard of the holy Prophet he announced, with a sun protection face mask for sale reverent inclination of his head and the two Mussulmans of the party followed his example. According to the tradition, this hair really came from the beard of Mohammed, sa.
