Medical Face Masks In Asia ekeeper hesitated. They re only children, after all, said the other, who had children of his own. Let me off for a few minutes, Captain, and I ll take them to my place and see if my good woman can t fit them up in something a little less outlandish than their present rig. Then they can have a look round without being mobbed. May I go Oh yes, if you like, said the Captain, but don t be all day. The man led them through the riding mask gas filter protect face respirator anti-dust dark arch into the town. And it was very different from London. For medical face masks in asia one thing, everything in London seems to be patched up out of odds and ends, but these houses seemed to have been built by people who liked the same sort of things. Not that they were all alike, for though all were squarish, they were of different sizes, and decorated in all sorts of different ways, some with paintings in bright colours, some with black and silver designs. There were terraces, and gardens, and balconies, and open spaces with trees. Their guide took them to a little house in a back street, where a kind faced woman sat spinning at the door of protective face mask for basketball a very dark room. Here, he said, just lend these children a mantle each, so that they can go about medical face masks in asia and see the place till the Queen s audience begins. You leave that wool for a bit, and show them round if you like. I must be off now. The woman did as she was told, and the four children, wrapped in fringed mantles, went with her all about the town, and oh how I wish I had time to tell you all that they saw. It was all so wonderfully different from anything you have ever seen. For one thing, all the houses were dazzlingly bright, and many of them covered with pictures. Some had great creatures carved in stone at each side of the door. Then the people there were no black frock coats and tall hats no dingy coats and skirts of good, useful, ugly stuffs warranted to wear. Everyone s clothes were bright and beautiful with blue and scarlet and green and gold. The market was brighter than you would think anything could be. There were stalls for everything you could possibly want and for a great many things that if you wanted here and now, want would be your master. There were pineapples and peaches in heaps and stalls of crockery and glass things, beautiful shapes and glorious colours, there were stalls for necklaces, and clasps, and bracelets, and brooches, for woven stuffs, and furs, and embroidered linen. The children had never seen half so many beautiful things together, even at Liberty s. It face mask to protect from frostbite seemed no time at all before the woman said It s nearly time now. We ought.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 hart medical face mask for outside to keep out smoke and dust fall through into a receptacle, from which they are removed to a cavern in the earth. How horrid exclaimed the ladies 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 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.
hers, which were not very clean, certainly, but at any face mask to protect against flu rate were soft and pink, and held it kindly and closely. But you can t take it home like that, Cyril said, medical face masks in asia we shall have a crowd after us, and indeed two face mask medical aesthetic errand boys and a policeman had already collected. I can t give you nothink only a paper bag, like what we put the tortoises in, said the man grudgingly. So the whole party went into the shop, and the shopman s eyes nearly came out of his head when, having given Anthea the largest paper bag he could find, he saw her hold it open, and the Psammead carefully creep into it. Well medical face masks in asia he said, if that there don t beat cockfighting But p raps you ve met the brute afore. Yes, said Cyril affably, he s an old friend of ours. If I d a known that, the man rejoined, you shouldn t a had him under twice the money. Owever, he added, as the children disappeared, I ain t done so bad, seeing as I only give five bob for the beast. But then there s the bites to take into account The children trembling in agitation and excitement, carried home the Psammead, trembling in its paper bag. When they got it home, Anthea nursed it, and stroked it, and would have cried over it, if she hadn t remembered how it hated to be wet. When it recovered enough to speak, it said Get me sand silver sand from the oil and colour shop. And get me plenty. They got the sand, and they put it and the Psammead in the round bath together, and it rubbed itself, and rolled itself, and shook itself and scraped itself, and scratched itself, and preened itself, till it felt clean and comfy, and then it scrabbled a hasty hole in the sand, and went to sleep in it. The children hid the bath under the girls bed, and had supper. Old Nurse had got them a lovely supper of bread and butter and fried onions. She was full of kind and delicate thoughts. When Anthea woke the next morning, the Psammead was snuggling down between her shoulder and Jane s. You have saved my life, it said. I know that man would have thrown cold water on me sooner or later, and then I should have died. I saw him wash out a guinea pig s hutch yesterday morning. I m still frightfully sleepy, I think I ll go back to sand for another nap. Wake the boys and this dormouse of a Jane, and when you ve had your breakfasts we ll have a talk. Don t YOU want any breakfast asked Anthea. I daresay I shall pick a bit presently, it said but sand is all I care about it s meat and drink to me, and coals and fire and wife and children. With these words it clambered down by the bedclothes a thing whcih protect the face mask on your face and scrambled ba.so as not to muddle the narration pointed to the reddy thing that the dogs were sniffing at. It s a real live fox, he said. And so it was. At least it was real only it was quite dead and when Oswald lifted it up its head was bleeding. It had evidently been shot through the brain and expired instantly. Oswald explained this to the girls when they began to cry at the sight of the poor beast I do not say he did not feel a bit sorry himself. The fox was cold, but its fur was so pretty, and its tail and its little feet. Dicky medical face masks in asia strung the dogs on the leash they were so much interested we thought it was better. It does seem horrid to think it ll never see again out of its poor little eyes, Dora said, blowing her nose. And never run about through the wood again, lend me your hanky, Dora said Alice. And never be hunted or get into a hen roost or a trap or anything exciting, poor little thing, said Dicky. The girls began to pick green chestnut leaves to cover up the poor fox s fatal wound, and Noel began to walk up and down making faces, the way he always does when he s making poetry. He cannot make one without the other. It works both ways, which is a comfort. What are we going to do now H. O. said the huntsman ought to cut off its tail, I m quite certain. Only, I ve broken the big blade of my knife, and the other never was any good. The girls gave H. O. a shove, and even Oswald said, Shut up , for somehow we all felt we did not want to play fox hunting any more that day. When his deadly wound was covered the fox hardly looked dead at all. Oh, I wish medical face masks in asia it wasn t true Alice said. Daisy had been crying all the time, and now she said, I should like to pray God to make it not true. But Dora kissed her, and told her that was no good only she might pray God to take care of the fox s poor little babies, if it had had any, which I believe she has done ever since. If only medical face masks in asia we could wake up and find it was a horrid dream, Alice said. It seems silly that we should have cared so much when we had really set out to hunt foxes with dogs, but it is true. The fox s feet looked so helpless. And there was a dusty mark on its side that I know would not have been there if it had been alive and able to wash itself. Noel now said, This is the piece of poetry Here lies poor Reynard who is slain, He will not come to life again. I never will the huntsman s horn Wind since the day that I was born Until the day I die For I don t like hunting, and this is why. Let s have a funeral, said H. O. This pleased everybody, and we got Dora to tak.communicated with the top of Moat House, but when he was properly awake he saw that this could not be, on account of the river being so low. He had matches. He is, as I said before, a boy full of resources. He struck one and lit a candle, and Dicky, for it was indeed he, gazed with Oswald at the amazing spectacle. Our bedroom floor was all wet in medical face masks in asia patches. Dicky s bed stood in a pond, and from the ceiling water was dripping in rich profusion at a dozen different places. There was a great wet patch in the ceiling, and that was blue, instead of white like the dry part, and the water dripped from different parts of it. In a moment Oswald was quite unmanned. Krikey he said, in a heart broken tone, and remained an instant plunged in thought. What on earth are we to do Dicky said. And really for a short medical face masks in asia time even Oswald did not do face masks protect against viruses know. It was a blood curdling event, a regular facer. Albert s uncle had gone to London that day to stay till the next. Yet something must be done. The first thing was to rouse the unconscious others from their deep sleep, because the water was beginning to drip on to their beds, and though as yet they knew it not, there was quite a pool on Noel s bed, just in the hollow behind where his knees were doubled up, and one of H. O. s boots was full of face masks for medical water, that surged wildly out when Oswald happened to kick it over. We woke them a difficult task, but we did not shrink from it. Then we said, Get up, there is a flood Wake up, or you will be drowned in your beds And it s half past two by Oswald s watch. They awoke slowly and very stupidly. H. O. was the slowest and stupidest. The water poured faster and faster from the ceiling. We looked at each other and turned pale, and Noel said Hadn t we better call Mrs Pettigrew But Oswald simply couldn t consent to this. He could not get rid of the feeling that this was our fault somehow for meddling with the river, though of course the clear star of reason told him it could not possibly be the case. We all devoted ourselves, heart and soul, to the work before us. We put the bath under the worst and wettest place, and the jugs and basins under lesser streams, and we moved the beds away to the dry end of the room. Ours is a long attic that runs right across the house. But the water kept coming in worse and worse. Our nightshirts were wet through, so we got into our other shirts and knickerbockers, but preserved bareness in our feet. And the floor kept on being half an inch deep in water, however much we mopped it up. medical face masks in asia We emptied the basins out of the.
Medical Face Masks In Asia he wonderful things seen and done in the Past, where, by the power of the Amulet, they seemed to spend hours and hours, only to find when they got back to London that the whole thing had been briefer than a lightning flash. They talked of the Past at their meals, in their walks, in the dining room, in the first floor drawing room, but most of all on the stairs. It was an old house it had once been a fashionable one, and was a fine one still. The banister rails of the stairs were excellent for sliding down, and in the corners of the landings were big alcoves that had once held graceful statues, and now quite often held the graceful forms of Cyril, Robert, Anthea, and Jane. One day Cyril and Robert in tight white underclothing had spent a pleasant hour in reproducing the attitudes of statues seen either in the British Museum, or in Father s big photograph book. But the show ended abruptly because Robert wanted to be the Venus of Milo, and for this purpose pulled at the sheet which served for drapery at the very moment when Cyril, looking really quite like the Discobolos with a gold and white saucer for the disc was standing on one foot, and under that one foot was the sheet. Of course the Discobolos and his disc and the would be Venus came down together, and everyone was a good deal hurt, especially the saucer, which would never be the same again, however neatly one might join its uneven bits with Seccotine or the white of an egg. I hope you re satisfied, said Cyril, holding his head where a large lump was rising. Quite, thanks, said Robert bitterly. His thumb had caught in the banisters and bent itself back almost to breaking point. I AM so sorry, poor, dear Squirrel, said Anthea and you were looking so lovely. I ll get a wet rag. Bobs, go and hold your hand under the hot water tap. It s what ballet girls do with their legs when they hurt them. I saw it in a book. What book said Robert disagreeably. But he went. When he came back Cyril s head had been bandaged by his sisters, and he had been brought to the state of mind where he was able reluctantly to admit that he supposed Robert hadn t done it on purpose. Robert replying with equal suavity, Anthea hastened to lead the talk away from the accident. I suppose you don t feel like going anywhere through the Amulet, she said. Egypt said Jane promptly. I want to see the pussy cats. Not me too hot, said Cyril. It s about as much as I can stand here let alone Egypt. It was indeed, hot, even on the second landing, which was the coolest place in the housefound 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 medical face masks in asia their use. Their luggage had already been sent 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 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 medical face masks in asia 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 medical face masks in asia 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 target face masks protect 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 fo.
