Why Do People In Japan Wear Those Medical Face Masks? to the harbor, and had gone forward. The ship had slowed down, and the captain spoke to the pilot about a convenient anchorage. The harbor was large enough to accommodate all the navies of the world, and there was no difficulty on this account. Lord Tremlyn had left his party to look at what was to be seen by themselves, and came forward to the pilot house. The anchorage was settled. Captain Ringgold, if why do people in japan wear those medical face masks? you please, we will now exchange places, said the viscount. Up to the present time we have been your guests now I will become the host, and you and your party will be my guests. I beg you will raise no objections, my dear sir, and I shall feel very much wounded if you do not accept the face mask wind protection hospitality I tender to you. You are at home on the sea as I am in Bombay. You have put it in such a way that I cannot refuse to accept, replied the commander, laughing at the corner in which he was placed. For the present we are your guests, and we place ourselves entirely under your direction. I am extremely happy to take you all under my protection but I cannot submit to the proviso which you have added to my offer, though I will be satisfied to have you for the present as my guests, and we will leave the why do people in japan wear those medical face masks? future to take care of itself. But in whatever capacity we travel over India, or such portion of it as you may elect, it is rather necessary that we fix upon a plan for our can a cotton face mask protect you form pollution operations. I am quite agreed that we had better draw up a programme, and I shall depend upon your counsel in the matter, replied the captain. For the present, will you excuse me until the ship comes why do people in japan wear those medical face masks? to anchor Certainly, Captain. Here is the custom house boat, and I suppose I must attend to that. Leave that to me, if you please. In another half hour the Guardian Mother was at anchor off the Apollo Bunder, the wharf, or landing place. The custom house officers came on board and, as the ship was not one of any regular line, a high official came off with them. As soon as he reached the deck he discovered his lordship, and rushed to him, bowed profusely, and addressed him in the most deferential manner. This is a very unexpected visit, my Lord, and in a steamer flying the American flag, said he, as the viscount gave him his hand, a piece of condescension he appeared to appreciate very highly. What has become of the Travancore She was wrecked in the Arabian Sea in a collision, and went to the bottom after holding us up for a few hours. We were rescued from certain death by this steamer, and we have been treated with the utmost kindness and consider.oys are tired enough to sit still for a minute, I want to have a council. We said what about And why do people in japan wear those medical face masks? she said, I ll tell you. H. O., don t wriggle so sit on my frock if the why do people in japan wear those medical face masks? straws tickle your legs. You see he wears socks, and so he can never be quite as comfortable as anyone else. Promise not to laugh Alice said, getting very red, and looking at Dora, who got red too. We did, and then she said Dora and I have talked this over, why do people in japan wear those medical face masks? and Daisy too, and we have written it down because it is easier than saying it. Shall I read it or will you, Dora Dora said it didn t matter Alice might. So Alice read it, and though she gabbled a bit we all heard it. I copied it afterwards. This is what she read NEW SOCIETY FOR BEING GOOD IN I, Dora Bastable, and Alice Bastable, my sister, being of sound mind and body, when we were shut up with bread and water on that jungle day, we thought a great deal about our naughty sins, and we made our minds up to be good for ever after. And we talked to Daisy about it, and she had an idea. So we want to start a society for being good in. It is Daisy s idea, but we think so too. You know, Dora interrupted, when people want to do good things they always make a society. There are thousands there s the Missionary Society. Yes, Alice said, and the Society for the Prevention of something or other, and the Young Men s Mutual Improvement Society, and the S.P.G. What s S.P.G. Oswald asked. Society for the Propagation of the Jews, of course, said Noel, who cannot always spell. No, it isn t but do let me go on. Alice did go on. We propose to get up a society, with a chairman and a treasurer and secretary, and keep a journal book saying what we ve done. If that doesn t make us good it won t be my fault. The aim of the society is nobleness and goodness, and great and unselfish deeds. We wish not to be such a nuisance to grown up people and to perform prodigies of real goodness. We wish to spread our wings here Alice read very fast. She told me afterwards Daisy had helped her with that part, and she thought when she came to the wings they sounded rather silly to spread our wings and rise above the kind of interesting things that you ought not to do, but to do kindnesses to all, however low and mean. Denny was listening carefully. Now he nodded three or four times. Little words of kindness he said , Little deeds of love, Make this earth an eagle Like the one above. This did not sound right, but we let it pass, because an eagle does have wings, and we wanted to hear the rest of what the girls had writte.
want to hear and to tell everything at the same time. As the talk went on there were more and more words that the girl could not understand, and the children soon gave up the attempt to explain to her what their own country was like, when they began to see how very few of the things they had always thought they could not do without were really not at all necessary to life. The girl showed them how the huts were made indeed, as one was being made that very day she took them to look at it. The way of building was very different from ours. The men stuck long pieces of wood into a piece of ground the size of the hut they wanted to make. These were about eight inches apart then they put in another row about eight inches away from the first, and then a third row still further out. Then all the space between was filled up with small branches and twigs, and then daubed over with black mud worked with the feet till it was soft and sticky like putty. The girl told them how the men went hunting with flint spears and arrows, and how they made boats with reeds and clay. Then she explained the reed thing in the river why do people in japan wear those medical face masks? that she had taken the fish out of. It was a fish trap just a ring of reeds set up in the water with only one little opening in it, and in this opening, just below the water, were stuck reeds slanting the way of the river s flow, so that the fish, when they had swum sillily in, sillily couldn t get out again. She showed them the clay pots and jars and platters, some of them ornamented with black and red patterns, and the most wonderful things made of flint and different sorts of stone, beads, and ornaments, and tools and weapons of all sorts and kinds. It is really wonderful, said Cyril patronizingly, when you consider that it s all eight thousand years ago I don t understand you, said the girl. It ISN T eight thousand years ago, whispered Jane. It s NOW and that s just what I don t like about it. I say, DO let s get home again before anything more happens. You can see for yourselves the charm isn t here. What s in that place in the middle asked Anthea, struck by a sudden thought, and pointing to the fence. That s the secret sacred place, said the girl in a whisper. No one knows what is there. There are many walls, and inside the insidest one IT is, but no one knows what IT is except the headsmen. I believe YOU know, said Cyril, looking at her very hard. I ll give you this if you ll tell me, said Anthea taking off a bead ring which had already been much admired. Yes, said the girl, catching eagerly.e off her petticoat to wrap the fox in, so that we could carry it to our garden and bury it without bloodying our jackets. Girls clothes are silly in one way, but I think they are useful too. A boy cannot take off more than his jacket and waistcoat in any emergency, or he is at once entirely undressed. But I have known Dora take off two petticoats for useful purposes and look just the same outside afterwards. We boys took it in turns to carry the fox. It was very heavy. When we got near the edge of the wood Noel said It would be better to bury it here, where the leaves can talk funeral songs over its grave for ever, and the other foxes can come and cry if they want to. He dumped the fox down on the moss under a young oak tree as he spoke. If half face protective mask cool Dicky fetched the spade and fork we could bury it here, and then he could tie up the dogs at the same time. You re sick of carrying it, Dicky remarked, that s what it is. But he went on condition the rest of us boys went too. While we were gone the face mask protection on the job girls dragged the fox to the edge of the wood it was a different edge to the one we went in by close how do you wear a disposable face mask? to protective face masks black mold a lane and while they waited for the digging or fatigue party to come back, they collected a lot of moss and green things to make the fox s long home soft for it to lie in. There are no flowers in the woods does wearing a face mask protect rhe spreas of the flu in August, which is a pity. When we got back with the spade and fork we dug a hole to bury the fox in. We did not bring the dogs back, because they were too interested in the funeral to behave with real, respectable calmness. The ground was loose and soft and easy to dig when we had scraped away the broken bits of sticks and the dead leaves and the wild honeysuckle Oswald used the fork and Dicky had the spade. Noel made faces and poetry he was struck so that morning and the girls sat stroking the clean parts of the fox s fur till the grave was deep enough. At last it was then Daisy threw in the leaves and grass, and Alice and Dora took the poor dead fox by his two ends and we helped to put him in the grave. We could not lower him slowly he was dropped in, really. Then we covered the furry body with leaves, and Noel said the Burial Ode he had made up. He says this was it, but it sounds better now than it did then, so I think he must have done something to it since THE FOX S BURIAL ODE Dear Fox, sleep here, and do not wake, We picked these leaves for your sake You must not try to rise or move, We give you this with our love. Close by the wood where once you grew Your mourning friends have buried you. If you had li.ng classes of the community. They are largely merchants and land owners, and bear the highest reputation for honesty, industry, and as peaceful citizens. They are quite prepossessing, and many of their ladies are remarkably beautiful, though I have seen a fairer American than any one of them. Some of them have studied law in England, and all are forward to avail themselves of the advantages of education. A merchant prince of this sect was noted as a philanthropist and for the vast sums of money he gave for benevolent institutions, the Queen knighted him, as she did Sir Modava for his public service. This gentleman is Sir Jamsetjee Jejeebhoy He died in 1859. Parsees do not eat anything cooked by a person of another religion, and reject beef and pork, especially hams. They are not permitted to marry outside of their own sect. Their dead are not buried or cremated, but are committed to what is called the Tower of Silence. The bodies are exposed on an iron grating, where the carniverous birds of the air can get to them until the flesh has all disappeared. Then the sun dried bones fall through into a receptacle, from which they are removed to a cavern in the earth. How horrid exclaimed the ladies why do people in japan wear those medical face masks? with one voice. The Parsee does not think so and perhaps he has the same view you have of our manner of disposing of the dead. In spite of the awe and respect with which the Parsees regard fire, they are about the only eastern people who do not smoke. But I think you need a rest by why do people in japan wear those medical face masks? this time, and I will retire for a little while. The company applauded as usual, and then began to pace the promenade deck. CHAPTER XIII LORD TREMLYN DISCOURSES MORE ABOUT INDIA The delightful weather of the forenoon charmed the party as they walked the deck. It was mid summer in the middle of the winter, as they looked at it for the almanac of home lingered in their minds, though the days were longer. The sun was rather warm on both sides of noon, though it was not oppressive, and the abundant awnings protected the passengers from its more searching rays. Statistical as the lecture had been, the viscount had made it interesting by softening the figures with his comparisons and some of his points, even in regard to the States, were new to them, and especially in regard to the United Kingdom. In about half an hour they were summoned to Conference Hall again for a continuation of the lecture. From the vast emigration to your country, ladies and gentlemen, I suppose there must be a great variety of people on your territory. The Germans.
Why Do People In Japan Wear Those Medical Face Masks? ll the native princes. I am very happy to make your acquaintance, Sir Modava, replied the commander, taking his dusky hand. The captain then invited the two titled gentlemen and the doctor of the party to the cabin, while the two engineers were turned over to Mr. Sentrick, the chief engineer. CHAPTER VI THE GENERAL INTRODUCTION IN THE CABIN It was still early in the morning, and the cabin party were not disposed to remain any longer on the promenade deck for it was almost impossible for some of face protection mask sun cycling them to stand up, even with the aid of the life lines and the rails, and all of them retreated to the boudoir and music room. None of them had been introduced to the strangers for why do people in japan wear those medical face masks? they had asked to be excused, as they were not in a presentable condition. The trio of distinguished individuals who had been conducted to the main cabin by the commander were of course soaked with water, and chilled after remaining so protective face mask for cleaning long in their involuntary bath and for this reason no questions were asked of them to bring out an explanation of the cause of the disaster of which they had been the victims. There were three vacant state rooms, to which they were assigned, and each of them had a bathroom connected with it. The two cabin stewards had already been ordered to prepare these rooms for the occupancy of the newcomers. Warm baths were ready for them when they took possession of the apartments. All this is more luxurious than we have been accustomed to lately, said Lord Tremlyn, when the commander ushered him into No. 11, which was provided with everything belonging to a suite of rooms in the best hotels of the United States. I hope you will be able to make yourself comfortable, sir but your greatest need at the present moment appears to be dry clothing, when you have restored your limbs to their normal condition in the bath, and I will endeavor to supply this want, replied the commander. You are very kind, Captain Ringgold, and I shall never cease to be grateful to you for the service you have rendered to me and my companions for all of us would have perished when the wreck of our steamer went down, without the prompt assistance you rendered to us, said the principal personage of the party, who was still shivering under the influence of the chill he had received in the cold waters of the sea. The why do people in japan wear those medical face masks? captain retired, closing the door of the room. He went to No. 12, to which Sir Modava Rao had been shown, why do people in japan wear those medical face masks? and then to No. 13, which had been appropriated to Dr. Ferrolan. He assured both of them that dry clothing would be provided.ncouraged her, but Oswald thought himself that we had better be home before dark. As we went up the path through the wood we saw a poor wayfarer with dusty bare feet sitting on the bank. He stopped us and said he was a sailor, and asked for a trifle to help him to get back to his ship. I did not like the look of him much myself, but Alice said, Oh, the poor man, do let s face medical mask help him, Oswald. So we held a hurried council, and decided to give him the milk sixpence. Oswald had it in his purse, and he had to empty the purse into his hand to find the sixpence, for that was not all the money he had, by any means. Noel said afterwards that he saw the wayfarer s eyes fastened greedily upon the shining pieces as Oswald returned them to his purse. Oswald has to own that he purposely let the man see that he had more money, so that the man might not feel shy about accepting so large a sum as sixpence. The man blessed our kind why do people in japan wear those medical face masks? hearts and we went on. The sun was shining very brightly, and the Tower of Mystery did not look at all like a tomb when we got to it. The bottom Storey was on arches, all open, and ferns and things grew underneath. There was a round stone stair going up in the middle. Alice began to gather ferns while we went up, but when we had called out to her that it was as the pig man had said, and daylight all the way up, she said All right. I m not afraid. I m only afraid of being late home, and came up after us. And perhaps, though not downright manly truthfulness, this was as much as you could expect from a girl. There were holes in the little tower of the staircase to let light in. At the top of it was a thick door with iron bolts. We shot these back, and it was not fear but caution that made Oswald push open the door so very slowly and carefully. Because, of course, a stray dog or cat might have got shut up there by accident, and it would have startled Alice very much if it had jumped out on us. When the door was opened we saw that there was no such thing. It was a room with eight sides. Denny says it is the shape called octogenarian because a man named Octagius invented it. There were eight large arched windows with no glass, only stone work, like in churches. The room was full of sunshine, and you could see the blue sky through the windows, but nothing else, because they were so high up. It was so bright we began to think the pig man had been kidding us. Under one of the windows was a door. We went through, and there was a little passage and then a turret twisting stair, like in the church, but.
