Smiths Medical Face Mask 005452 as those of Egypt, suggested Mr. Woolridge. There are not many millionaires among the natives, and these smaller coins are mostly used among them. They are convenient also to the stingy Englishman when the plate is passed around in church, added his lordship with a chuckle, which pleased Uncle Moses more than the remark. India has a public debt of about disposable 2-Ply Tie On Face Mask pound 200,000,000, contracted for railways, canals, war, and other purposes. The revenue last year was pound 84,932,100, and the expenditures were pound 84,661,700. Not a large margin but you must multiply the pounds by five, or nearly that, to reduce them to dollars. The poppy is extensively cultivated in India and the export tax in Calcutta amounts to six and a quarter millions, in Bombay, to three and a half millions, on the manufactured opium. The producer sends his crop to the government factory, whence it is sold to the exporter all this to prevent frauds on the revenue. Wages and prices have gone up under British rule. The best class of laborers get four annas a day, and others not more than two, six to twelve cents a day. Grain for food is a penny for two pounds, a cent a pound. Women and children earn small wages. The clothing of the poor is scanty and cheap fuel costs nothing and rent for dwellings is hardly known. The masses in the country, not laborers, live on the land as owners or lessees. There has never been anything like a poor law, and ordinarily there is no need of such. It would be quite impossible for me to give the history of India in detail in the limited time at my command, especially as we are now approaching the land. Vasco da Gama, the Portuguese navigator, was the first to reach the East Indies, in 1498 but his countrymen never did much trading here, being more intent upon securing the rich treasures of the Indies. As early as 1600 the English turned their attention in this direction. Companies were formed but being driven by the Dutch from the islands which they still hold, they began to make settlements on the coast of this peninsula. Madras dates from 1639, Bombay from 1686, Calcutta from 1686. The Company said, Let us make a nation in India and they went to work at once to do it. They accomplished their purpose, fostered by the government, raised and borrowed money, and in the course of time had an army and a navy, and ruled the country. They defeated the Grand Mogul, drove the French out of the peninsula, and were generally very prosperous. In kids washable medical face mask 1833 Parliament revoked all the trading privileges of the company and thei.do, and he crowned his magnificent hospitality by inviting the entire company to install themselves in his mansion, which was large enough for a palace but for the reasons already set forth, the invitation was gratefully declined. The bulk disposable face mask next morning the travellers visited the Mosque of Pearls, where the ancient emperors came to perform their devotions. The interior is of carved ivory. From this little gem of a church the company were driven to the Chandi Chowk, which is a boulevard, planted with trees and lined with elegant buildings. The stores of the principal merchants of Delhi were here, and most of them were on the plan of an Oriental bazaar. The little square shops challenged the attention of the party, and most of them alighted to examine the rich goods displayed. In the course of the ride they passed the Black Mosque, the only building in the city dating farther back than the reign of Shah Jehan. They found the bungalow surrounded and partly filled, on their return, by venders of relics, curiosities, and other wares, anxious to find customers for their goods. But they were not very fortunate in the enterprise, and finally they were all driven away by an officer. In the afternoon they drove out on the plains of Delhi, among the ruins of palaces, tombs, and temples. They stopped at another black mosque, face mask children medical disposable near which was a handsome pavilion, which had been the library of the emperors. One of these emperors was Houmayoun, who recovered the throne after a long banishment. He lost his life in consequence of a fall from the top of a ladder he had mounted to obtain a book, said Sir Modava. He was the real founder of the Great Mogul dynasty. His mausoleum, to which we will go next, is one of the noblest monuments on this plain and the carriages proceeded to it. It is a mass of white marble and red sandstone. It has a fine dome, around which cluster several smaller structures, such as we should call cupolas in America or England. Under the great dome in the building is a plain tombstone, beneath which are the remains of the first of the protective face masks for resin Mogul emperors. The mausoleum is placed on an esplanade, like the great mosque in the city. The sides present a vast display of pointed arches, and its shape on the ground is quite irregular. The party were driven to the tower of Koutub, a Mussulman conqueror, who commemorated his victory by building this triumphal column, which is two hundred and twenty seven feet high. It consists of five stories, becoming smaller as they ascend. The remains of his mosque were visited.
ved you d not have been Been proper friends with us, I mean , But now you re laid upon the shelf, Poor fox, you cannot help yourself, So, as I say, we are your loving friends And here your Burial Ode, dear Foxy, ends. P. S. When in the moonlight bright The foxes wander of a night, They ll pass your grave and fondly think of you, Exactly like we mean to always do. So now, dear fox, adieu Your friends are few But true To you. Adieu When this had been said we filled in the grave and covered the top of it with dry leaves and sticks to make it look like the rest of the wood. People might think it was a treasure, and dig it up, if they thought there was anything buried there, and we wished the poor fox to sleep sound and not to be disturbed. The interring was over. We folded up Dora s bloodstained pink cotton petticoat, and turned to leave the sad spot. We had not gone a dozen yards down the lane when we heard footsteps and a whistle behind us, and a scrabbling and whining, and a gentleman with two fox terriers had called a halt just by the place where we had laid low the little red rover. The gentleman stood in the lane, but the dogs were digging we could see their tails wagging and see the dust fly. And we SAW WHERE. We ran back. Oh, please, do stop your dogs digging there Alice said. The gentleman said Why Because we ve just had a funeral, and that s the grave. The gentleman whistled, but the fox terriers were not trained like Pincher, who was brought up by Oswald. The gentleman took a stride through the hedge gap. What have you been burying pet dicky bird, eh said the gentleman, kindly. He had riding breeches and white whiskers. We did not answer, because now, for the first time, it came over all of us, in a rush of blushes and uncomfortableness, that burying a fox is a suspicious act. I don t know why we felt this, but we did. Noel said dreamily We found his murdered body in the wood, And dug a grave by which the mourners stood. But no one heard him except Oswald, because Alice and Dora and Daisy were all jumping about with the jumps of unrestrained anguish, and nano dust protection face mask saying, Oh, call them off Do do smiths medical face mask 005452 oh, don t, don t Don t let them dig. Alas Oswald was, as usual, right. The ground of the grave softball protective face mask had not been trampled down hard enough, and he had said so plainly at the time, but his prudent counsels had been overruled. Now these busy bodying, meddling, mischief making fox terriers smiths medical face mask 005452 how different from Pincher, who minds his own business unless told otherwise had scratched away the earth and laid bare the reddi.ish soldier. What we want, Alice said, is something that will be a good deal of trouble to us and some good to her. A little help is worth a deal of poetry, said Denny. I should not have said smiths medical face mask 005452 that myself. Noel did look sick. What DOES she do that we can help in Dora asked. Besides, she won t let us help. H. O. said, She does nothing but work in the garden. At least if she does anything inside you can t see it, because she keeps the door shut. Then at once we saw. And we agreed to get up the very next day, ere yet the rosy dawn had flushed the east, and have a go at Mrs Simpkins s garden. We smiths medical face mask 005452 got up. We really did. But too often when you mean to, overnight, it seems so silly to do it when you come to waking in the dewy morn. We crept downstairs with our boots in our hands. Denny is rather unlucky, though a most careful boy. It was he who dropped his boot, and it went blundering smiths medical face mask 005452 down the stairs, echoing like thunderbolts, and waking up Albert s uncle. But when we explained to him that we were going to do some gardening he let us, and went back to bed. Everything is very pretty and different in the early morning, before people are up. I have been told this is because the shadows go a different way from what they do in the awake part of the day. But I don t know. Noel says the fairies have just finished tidying up then. Anyhow it all feels quite otherwise. We put on our boots in the porch, and we got our gardening tools and we went down to the white cottage. It is a nice cottage, with a thatched roof, like in the drawing copies you get at girls schools, and you do the thatch if you can with a B.B. pencil. If you cannot, you just leave it. It looks just as well, somehow, when it is mounted and framed. We looked at the garden. It was very neat. Only one patch was coming up thick with smiths medical face mask 005452 weeds. I could see groundsel and chickweed, and others that I did not know. We set to work with a will. We used all our tools spades, forks, hoes, and rakes and Dora worked with the trowel, sitting down, because her foot was hurt. We cleared the weedy patch beautifully, scraping off all the nasty weeds and leaving the nice clean brown dirt. We worked as hard as ever we could. And we smiths medical face mask 005452 were happy, because it was unselfish toil, and no one thought then of putting it in the Book of Golden Deeds, where we had agreed to write down our virtuous actions and the good doings of each other, when we happen to notice them. We had just done, and we were looking at the beautiful production of our honest labour, when the cottage door burst op.with as much dignity and gravity as though he were a big banker and he is also seen perched upon the walls and buildings. They have an enormous bill, as you observe. A friend of mine had a tame one and one day when the table was ready for dinner he took a chicken from the dish and swallowed it whole. He has a searching eye, and discovers a hidden bit of meat, a dead cat or other animal, and bolts it in the twinkling of an eye. The steamer continued on her course down the river, and in less than four hours arrived at Diamond Harbor. It contained a fort, a signal station, and a telegraph office, though there is nothing in the shape of a village. The East India Company s ships made this their port but the improvement of the navigation of the river enables all the steamers to go up to the city, to which their arrival is telegraphed. The extensive territory included in the delta of the Ganges is called the Sunderbunds, smiths medical face mask 005452 and is about equal to the State of Massachusetts in size. It is a muddy region, cut up by a network of streams and it is full of swamps, morasses, and mud holes. Nearest to the sea is a belt of land, forming a wide extent of jungle, with a dense undergrowth of tropical plants and verdure for it is in the Torrid Zone, which the tourists entered about forty miles north of Calcutta. This jungle was the objective point of the hunters of the party. The captain of the steam yacht took the company on board through a number of the lagoons and cutoffs to enable them to see the wild character of the scenery. Lord Tremlyn, Sir Modava, and Dr. Ferrolan were kept busy explaining the trees, plants, crocodiles, storks, and other animals. At a pleasant basin, dinner was served on board, and it was quite as good as they would have obtained at smiths medical face mask 005452 the Great Eastern for just now the party were government guests, and the officials could not do enough for a person of Lord Tremlyn s influence in smiths medical face mask 005452 England. After the meal the hunters prepared themselves for the sport in which they were to engage. Mrs. Belgrave warned her son to be very careful, and Mrs. Blossom did as much for Felix. The steamer started into a cut off leading through to the Bay of Bengal, the polite captain explained. It was full of game of all sorts, including the wild buffalo, rhinoceros, tiger, leopard, wild hog, deer, and the trees and bushes were as full of monkeys as they could swarm. It was agreed among the hunters that none of the latter should be shot, for they were harmless animals. Captain, dear, are there any schnakes forninst the joongle.
Smiths Medical Face Mask 005452 It sighed, but did not wake. Then we took it in turns to sit by it and see that it did not get up and fling itself out of bed, which, in one of its furious fits, it would just as soon have done as not. We expected Albert s uncle every minute. At last we heard the gate, but he did not come in, so we looked out and saw that there he was talking to a distracted looking man on a piebald horse one of the miller s horses. A shiver of doubt coursed through our veins. We could not remember having done anything wrong at the miller s. But you never know. And it seemed strange his sending a man up on his own horse. But when we had looked a bit longer our fears went down and our curiosity got up. For we saw that the distracted one was a gentleman. Presently he rode off, and Albert s uncle came in. A deputation met him at the door all the boys and Dora, because the baby was her idea. We ve found something, Dora said, and we want to know whether we may keep it. The rest of us said nothing. We were not so very extra anxious to keep it after we had heard how much and how long it could howl. Even Noel had said he had no idea a smiths medical face mask 005452 baby could yell like it. Dora said it only cried because it was sleepy, but we reflected that it would certainly be sleepy once a day, if not oftener. What is it said Albert s uncle. Let s see this treasure trove. Is it a wild beast Come and see, said Dora, and we led him to our room. Alice turned down the pink flannelette petticoat with silly pride, and showed the youthful heir fishing hat with sun protection face mask fatly and pinkly sleeping. A baby said Albert s uncle. THE Baby Oh, my cat s alive That is an expression which he uses to express despair unmixed with anger. Where did you but that doesn t matter. We ll talk of this later. He rushed from the room, and in a moment or two we saw him mount his bicycle and ride off. Quite shortly he face mask protection target returned with the distracted horse man. It was HIS baby, and not titled at all. The horseman and his wife were the lodgers at the mill. The nursemaid was a girl from the village. She SAID she only left the Baby five minutes while she went to speak to her sweetheart who was gardener at the Red House. But we knew she left it over an hour, and nearly two. I never saw anyone so pleased as the distracted horseman. When we were asked we explained about having thought the Baby was the prey of gipsies, and the distracted horseman stood hugging the Baby, and actually thanked us. But when he had gone we had a brief lecture on minding our own business. But Dora still thinks she was right. As for Oswald a.teful comrade in arms. Oswald felt heart felt sorry to wound the good Colonel s feelings, but he had to remark that he had only done his duty, and he was sure no British scout would take five bob for doing that. And besides, he said, with that feeling of justice which is part of his young character, it was the others just as much as me. Your sentiments, Sir, said the Colonel who was one of the politest and most discerning colonels I ever saw, your sentiments do you honour. But, Bastables all, and and non smiths medical face mask 005452 Bastables he couldn t remember Foulkes it s not such an interesting name as Bastable, of course at least you ll accept a soldier s pay Lucky to touch it, a shilling a day Alice and Denny said together. And the Cocked Hatted Man said something about knowing your own mind and knowing your own Kipling. A soldier, said the Colonel, would certainly be lucky to touch it. You see there are deductions for rations. Five shillings is exactly right, deducting twopence each for six teas. This seemed cheap for the three cups of tea and the three eggs and all the strawberry jam and bread and butter Oswald had had, as well as what the others ate, and Lady s and Pincher smiths medical face mask 005452 s teas, but I suppose soldiers get things cheaper than civilians, which is only right. Oswald took the five shillings then, there being no longer any scruples why he should not. Just as we had parted from the brave Colonel and the rest we saw a bicycle coming. It was Albert s uncle. He got off and said What on earth have you been up to What were you doing with those volunteers We told him the wild adventures of the day, and he listened, and then he said he would withdraw the word volunteers if we liked. But the seeds of doubt were sown in the breast of Oswald. He was now almost sure that we had made jolly fools of ourselves without a moment s pause throughout the whole of this eventful day. He said nothing at the time, but after supper he had it out with Albert s uncle about the word which had been withdrawn. Albert s uncle said, of course, no one could be sure that the dragon s teeth hadn t come up in the good old fashioned way, but that, on the other hand, it was barely possible that both the British and the enemy were only volunteers having a field day or sham fight, and he rather thought the Cocked Hatted Man was not a general, but a doctor. And the man with a red pennon carried behind him MIGHT have been the umpire. Oswald never what to do if you have a small face and no medical masks fit you told the others a word of this. Their young breasts were all panting with joy because they had saved their country a.
