Protective Face Masks For Germs And Particles the northward of the ship. He listened with all his ears, and then distinguished very faintly shouts from human voices. He waited only long enough to satisfy himself that he had not mistaken the roar of the sea for calls for help, and then went forward to the pilot house, where he announced that he had heard the shots and the cries. Are you sure of it, Mr. Scott asked the first officer. Very sure, sir. We have heard nothing, and the lookouts have not reported anything, added Mr. Boulong. On deck, sir Wreck on the half face airsoft mesh mask with ear protection port beam yelled the lookout aloft. Call the captain, Mr. Scott, said the first officer, as he went out on deck. He made out the ominous sounds, and judged that they came from a point not more than a mile distant. The commander and Scott appeared immediately and with the increased daylight they discovered several men clinging to what appeared to be a wreck. CHAPTER III A REVIEW OF THE PAST FOURTEEN MONTHS The Guardian Mother had sailed from New York about fourteen months before she appeared in the waters of the Arabian Sea. She was a steam yacht of 624 tons burden, owned by Louis Belgrave, a young man who had just entered his eighteenth year. His native place was Von Blonk Park, in New Jersey, most of whose territory had been the farm of the young gentleman s grandfather, who had become a millionaire by the sale of his land. The terrors of the War of the Rebellion had driven the old man to convert his property into gold, which he had concealed so effectually that no one could find it. His only son, more patriotic than his father, had enlisted in the loyal army, and had been severely wounded in the brave and faithful discharge of his duty, and returned to the home of his childhood a wreck of his former self. His father died during his absence, and Paul Belgrave, the soldier, was his sole heir. His physical condition improved considerably, though he never ceased to suffer from the effects of his wound. The homestead of protective face masks for germs and particles his father, which had not been sold with the rest of his land, afforded the invalid a sufficient support and he married Maud Nashwood, the only daughter of one of the small magnates of Von Blonk Park, which had now become a thriving town, occupied mainly by business men of New York. Paul Belgrave was a millionaire without any millions for he was never able to find the large property of his deceased parent. For ten years he dug over the cellar bottom of the old house, and the ground in the vicinity but the missing million entirely eluded his search, and he died as soon as he g.ce, in each other. So Anthea kneeled down by him and said What s the matter I m expelled from school, said the boy between his sobs. This was serious. People are not expelled for light offences. Do you mind telling us what you d done I I tore up a sheet of paper and threw it about in the playground, said the child, in the tone of one confessing an unutterable baseness. You won t talk to me any more now you know that, he added without looking up. Was that all asked Anthea. It s about enough, said the child and I m expelled for the whole day I don t quite understand, said Anthea, gently. The boy lifted his face, rolled over, and sat up. Why, whoever on earth are you he said. We re strangers from a far country, said Anthea. In our country it s not a crime to leave a bit of paper about. It is here, said the child. If grown protective face masks for germs and particles ups do it they re fined. When we do protective face masks for germs and particles it we re expelled for the whole day. Well, but, said Robert, that just means a day s holiday. You MUST come from a long way off, said the little boy. A holiday s when you all have play and treats and jolliness, all of you together. On your expelled days no one ll speak to you. Everyone sees you re an Expelleder or you d be in school. Suppose you were ill Nobody is hardly. If they are, of course they wear the badge, and everyone is kind to you. I know a boy that stole his sister s illness badge and wore it when he was expelled for a day. HE got expelled for a week for that. It must protective face masks for germs and particles be awful not to go to school for a week. Do you LIKE school, then asked Robert incredulously. Of course I do. It s the loveliest place there is. I chose railways for my special subject this year, there are such splendid models and things, and now I shall be all behind because of that torn up paper. You choose your own subject asked Cyril. Yes, of course. Where DID you come from Don t you know ANYTHING No, said Jane definitely so you d better tell us. Well, on Midsummer Day school breaks up and everything s decorated with flowers, and you choose your special subject for next year. Of course you have to stick to it for a year at least. Then there are all your other subjects, of course, reading, and painting, and the rules of Citizenship. Good gracious said Anthea. Look here, said the child, jumping up, it s nearly four. The expelledness only lasts till then. Come home with me. Mother will tell you all about everything. Will your mother like you taking home strange children asked Anthea. face protection mask for graffiti removal I don t understand, said the child, settling his leather belt over his honey coloured sm.
aid the skipper. The pearl divers of Persia are not more skilful. Why, we ve got a fresh water spring that comes out at the bottom of the sea. Our divers dive down and bring up the fresh water in skin bottles Can your barbarian divers do as much I suppose not, said Robert, protective face masks for germs and particles and put away a wild desire to explain to the Captain the English system of waterworks, pipes, taps, and the intricacies of the plumbers trade. As they neared the quay the skipper made a hasty toilet. He did his hair, combed his beard, put on a garment like a jersey with short sleeves, an embroidered belt, a necklace of beads, and a big signet ring. Now, said he, I m fit to be seen. Come along Where to said Jane cautiously. To Pheles, the great sea captain, said the skipper, the man I told you of, who loves barbarians. Then Rekh mara came forward, and, for the first time, spoke. I have known these children in another land, he said. You know my powers of magic. It was my magic that brought these barbarians to your boat. And you know how they will profit you. I read your thoughts. Let me come with you and see the end of them, and then I will work the spell I promised you in return for the little experience you have so kindly given me on your boat. The skipper looked at the Egyptian with some disfavour. So it was YOUR doing, he said. I might have guessed it. Well, come on. So he came, and the girls wished he hadn t. But Robert whispered Nonsense as long as he s with us we ve got some chance of the Amulet. We can always fly if anything goes wrong. The morning was so fresh and bright their breakfast had been so good and so unusual they had actually seen the Amulet round the Egyptian s neck. One or two, or all these things, suddenly raised the children s spirits. They went off quite cheerfully through the city gate it was not protective face masks for germs and particles arched, but roofed over with a great flat stone and so through the street, which smelt horribly of fish and garlic and a thousand other things holulo organic vapor full face respirator respiratory protection gas mask even less agreeable. But far worse than the street scents was the scent of the factory, where the skipper called in to sell his night s catch. I wish I could tell you all about that factory, but I haven t time, and perhaps after all you aren t interested in dyeing works. I will only mention that Robert was triumphantly proved to be right. The dye WAS a yellowish white liquid of a creamy consistency, and it smelt more strongly of garlic than garlic itself does. While the skipper was bargaining with the master of the dye works the Egyptian came close to the children, and said.ackle and snap so when you are reconnoitring, or anxious to escape detection for whatever reason. Our Colonel s orderly crackled most. If you re not near enough to tell a colonel by the crown and stars on his shoulder strap, you can tell him by the orderly behind him, like follow my leader. Look out said Oswald in a low but commanding whisper, the camp s down in that field. You can see if you take a squint through this gap. The speaker took a squint himself as he spoke, and drew back, baffled beyond the power of speech. While he was struggling with his baffledness the British Colonel had his squint. He also drew back, and said a word that he must have known was not right at least when he was a boy. I don t care, said Oswald, they were there this morning. White tents like mushrooms, and an enemy cleaning a cauldron. With sand, said Dicky. That s most convincing, said the Colonel, and I did not like the way he said it. I say, face mask for bike protection Oswald said, let s get to the top corner of the ambush the wood, I mean. You can see the crossroads from there. We did, and quickly, for the crackling of branches no longer dismayed our almost despairing spirits. We came to the edge of the wood, and Oswald s patriotic heart really did give a jump, and he cried, There they are, are face masks protect u on the Dover Road. Our miscellaneous signboard had done its work. By Jove, young un, you re right And in quarter column, too We ve got em on toast on toast egad I never heard anyone not in protective face masks for germs and particles a book say egad before, so I saw something really out of the way was indeed up. The Colonel was a man of prompt and decisive action. He sent the orderly to tell the Major to advance two companies on the left flank and take cover. Then we led him back through the wood the nearest way, because he said he must rejoin the main body at once. We found the main body very friendly with Noel and H. O. and the others, and Alice was talking to the Cocked Hatted One as if she had known him all her life. I think he s a general in disguise, Noel said. He s been giving us chocolate out of a pocket in his saddle. Oswald thought about the roast rabbit then and he is not ashamed to own it yet he did not say a word. But Alice is really not a bad sort. She had saved two bars of chocolate for him and Dicky. Even in war girls can sometimes be useful in their humble way. The Colonel fussed about and said, Take cover there and everybody hid in the ditch, and the horses and the Cocked Hat, with Alice, retreated down the road out of sight. We were in the ditch too. It was muddy but nobody though.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 protective face masks for germs and particles 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 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 protective face masks for germs and particles 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 it hyout full face protective mask wasn t true Alice said. Daisy had been crying all the time, and now she said, I should like to pray medical face mask walmart 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 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.
Protective Face Masks For Germs And Particles ill o er the downs so free, Oh, who will with me ride, Oh, who will up and follow me, To win a blooming bride Her father he has locked the door, Her mother keeps the key But neither bolt nor bar shall keep My own true love from me. Jane, the alto, was missing, and Robert, unlike the mother of the lady in the song, never could keep the key , but the song, even so, was sufficiently unlike anything any of them had ever heard to rouse the Babylonian Court to the wildest enthusiasm. More, more, cried the King by my beard, this savage music is a new thing. Sing again So they sang I saw her bower at twilight gray, Twas guarded safe and sure. I saw her bower at break of day, Twas guarded then no more. The protective face masks for germs and particles varlets they were all asleep, And there was none to see The greeting fair that passed there Between my love and me. Shouts of applause greeted the ending of the verse, and the King would not be satisfied till they had sung all their protective face masks for germs and particles part songs they only knew three twice over, and ended up with Men of Harlech in unison. Then the King stood up in his royal robes with his high, narrow crown on his head and shouted By the beak of Nisroch, ask what you will, strangers from the land where the sun never sets We ought to say it s enough honour, like the dancer did, protection from measles face masks whispered Anthea. No, let s ask for IT, said Robert. No, no, I m sure the other s manners, said Anthea. But Robert, who was excited by the music, and the flaring torches, and the applause and the opportunity, spoke up before the others could stop him. Give us the half of the Amulet that has on it the name UR HEKAU SETCHEH, he said, adding as an afterthought, O King, live for ever. As he spoke the great name those in the pillared hall fell on their faces, and lay still. All but the Queen who crouched amid her cushions with her head in her hands, and the King, who stood upright, perfectly still, like the statue of a king in stone. It was only for a moment though. Then his great voice thundered out Guard, seize them Instantly, from nowhere as it seemed, sprang eight soldiers in bright armour inlaid with gold, and tunics of red and white. Very splendid they were, and very alarming. Impious and sacrilegious wretches shouted the King. To the dungeons with them We will find a way, tomorrow, to make them speak. For without doubt they can tell us where to find the lost half of It. A wall of scarlet protective face masks for germs and particles and white and steel and gold closed up round the children and hurried them away among the many pillars of the great hall. As they went they heard the voices of the c.ald saw, and he said Primus Go ahead, old man. The Dentist went ahead. In The Daisy Chain, he said, they dug in a Roman encampment and the children went first and put some pottery there they d made themselves, and Harry s old medal of the Duke of Wellington. The doctor helped them to some stuff to partly efface the inscription, and all the grown ups were sold. I thought we might You may break, you may shatter The vase if you will But the scent of the Romans Will cling round it still. Denny sat down amid applause. It really was a great idea, at least for HIM. It seemed to add just what was wanted to the visit of the Maidstone Antiquities. To sell the Antiquities thoroughly would be indeed splendiferous. Of course Dora made haste to point out that we had not got an old medal of the Duke of Wellington, and that we hadn medical face mask 19720 t any doctor who would help us to stuff to efface , and etcetera but we sternly bade her stow it. We weren t going to do EXACTLY like those Daisy Chain kids. The pottery was easy. We had made a lot of it by the stream which was the Nile when we discovered its source and dried it in the sun, and then baked it under a bonfire, like protective face masks for germs and particles in Foul Play. And most of the things were such computer face shield protecting mask queer shapes that they should have done for almost anything Roman or Greek, or even Egyptian or antediluvian, or household milk jugs of the cavemen, Albert s uncle said. The pots were, fortunately, quite ready and dirty, because we had already buried them in mixed sand and river mud to improve the colour, and not remembered to wash it off. So the Council at once collected it all and some rusty hinges and some brass buttons and a file without a handle and the girl Councillors carried it all concealed in their pinafores, while the men members carried digging tools. H. O. and Daisy were sent on ahead as scouts to see if the coast was clear. We have learned the true usefulness of scouts from reading about the Transvaal War. But all was still in the hush of evening sunset on the Roman ruin. We posted sentries, who were to lie on their stomachs on the walls and give a long, low, signifying whistle if aught approached. Then we dug a tunnel, like the one we once did after treasure, when we happened to bury a boy. It took some time but never shall it be said that a Bastable grudged time or trouble when a lark was at stake. We put the things in as naturally as we could, and shoved the dirt back, till everything looked just as before. Then we went home, late for tea. But it was in a good cause and there was no hot toast, only.
