Sun Protection Face Mask With Cooling Fabric Patagonia ky hammered his finger, and Denny took all day over every stroke, so that by tea time we had only done the H, and about half the E and the E was fall face medical mask awfully crooked. Oswald chipped his thumb over the H. We looked at it the next morning, and even the most sanguinary of us saw that it was a hopeless task. Then Denny said, Why not wood and paint and he showed us how. We got a board and two stumps from the carpenter s in the village, and we painted it all white, and when that was dry Denny did the words on it. It was something like this IN MEMORY OF BILL SIMPKINS DEAD FOR QUEEN AND COUNTRY. HONOUR TO HIS NAME AND ALL OTHER BRAVE SOLDIERS. We could not get in what we meant to at first, so we had to give up the poetry. We fixed it up when it was dry. We had to dig jolly deep to get the posts to stand up, but the gardener helped us. Then the girls made wreaths of white riding mask gas filter protect face respirator anti-dust flowers, roses and Canterbury bells, and lilies and pinks, and sweet peas and daisies, and put them sun protection face mask with cooling fabric patagonia over the posts. And I think if Bill Simpkins had known how sorry we were, he would have been glad. Oswald only hopes if he falls on the wild battlefield, which is his highest ambition, that somebody will be as sorry about him as he was about Bill, that s all When all was done, and what flowers there were over from the wreaths scattered under the tombstone between the posts, we wrote a letter to Mrs Simpkins, and said DEAR MRS SIMPKINS We are very, very sorry about the turnips and things, and we beg your pardon humbly. We have put up a tombstone to your brave son. And we signed our names. Alice took the letter. The soldier s mother read it, and said something about our oughting to know better than to make fun of people s troubles with our tombstones and tomfoolery. Alice told sun protection face mask with cooling fabric patagonia me she could not help crying. She said It s not it s NOT Dear, DEAR Mrs Simpkins, do come with me and see You don t know how sorry we are about Bill. Do come and see. We can go through the churchyard, and the others have all gone in, so as to leave it quiet for you. Do come. And Mrs Simpkins did. And when she read what we had put up, and Alice told her the verse we had not had room for, she leant against the wall by the grave I mean the tombstone and Alice hugged her, and they both cried bitterly. The poor soldier s mother was very, very pleased, and she forgave us about the turnips, and we were friends after that, but she always liked Alice the best. A great many people do, somehow. After that we used to put fresh flowers every day on Bill s tombstone, and I do believe his m.others followed, and the door was shut. Blowed if I can make it out they heard. I m off home, I am. And the crowd, coming slowly to the same mind, dispersed, followed by another crowd of persons who were not dressed in what the Queen thought was the proper way. We shall have the police here directly, said Anthea in the tones of despair. Oh, why did you come dressed like that The Queen leaned against the arm of the horse hair sofa. How else can a queen dress I should like to know she questioned. Our Queen wears things like other people, said Cyril. Well, I don t. And I must say, she remarked in an injured tone, that you don t seem very glad to see me now I HAVE come. But perhaps it s the surprise that makes you behave like this. Yet you ought to be used to surprises. The way you vanished I shall never forget it. The best magic I ve ever seen. How did you do it Oh, never mind about that now, said Robert. You see you ve gone and upset all those people, and I expect they ll fetch the police. And we don t want to see you collared and put in prison. You can t put queens in prison, she said loftily. Oh, can t you said Cyril. We cut off a king s head here once. In this miserable room How frightfully interesting. No, no, not in this room in history. Oh, in THAT, said the Queen disparagingly. I thought you d done it with your own hands. The girls shuddered. What a hideous city yours is, the Queen went on pleasantly, and what horrid, ignorant people. Do you know they actually can t understand a single word I say. Can you understand them asked Jane. Of course not they speak some vulgar, Northern dialect. I can understand YOU quite well. I really am not going to explain AGAIN how it was that the children could understand other languages than their own so thoroughly, and talk them, too, so that it felt and sounded to them just as though they were talking English. Well, said Cyril bluntly, now you ve seen just how horrid it is, don t you think you might as well go home again Why, I ve seen simply nothing yet, said the Queen, arranging her starry veil. I wished to be at your door, and I was. Now I must go and see your King and Queen. Nobody s allowed to, roscoe medical full face mask said Anthea in haste but look here, we ll take you and show you anything you d like to see anything you CAN see, she added kindly, because she remembered how nice the Queen had been to them in Babylon, even if she had been a little deceitful in the matter of Jane and Psammead. There s the Museum, said Cyril hopefully there are lots of things from your country the.
chapter 1 Flora Lee s birthday came in July. Her mother wished very much to celebrate the occasion in a proper manner. Flora was a good bluetooth face mask with ear protection girl, and her parents were always glad to do any thing they could to please her, and to increase her Pg 8 happiness. They were very indulgent parents, and as they had plenty of money, they sun protection face mask with cooling fabric patagonia could afford to pay well for a good time. Yet they were not weak and silly in their indulgence. As much as they loved their little daughter, they did not give her pies and cakes to eat when they thought such articles would hurt her. They did not let her lie in Pg 9 bed till noon because they loved her, or permit her to do any thing that would injure her, either in sun protection face mask with cooling fabric patagonia body or mind. Flora always went to church, and to the Sunday school, and never cried to stay at home. If she had cried, it would have made no difference, for her father and mother meant to have her do right, whether she liked it or not. CHAPTER 1. THE JUNGLE Children are like jam all very well in the proper place, but you can t stand them all over the shop eh, what These were the dreadful words of our Indian uncle. They made us feel very young and angry and yet we could not be comforted by calling him names to ourselves, as you do when nasty grown ups say nasty things, because he is not nasty, but quite the exact opposite when not irritated. And we could not think it ungentlemanly of him to say we were like jam, because, as Alice says, jam is very nice indeed only not on furniture and improper places like that. My father said, Perhaps they had better go to boarding school. And that was awful, because we know Father disapproves of boarding schools. And he looked at us and said, I am ashamed of them, sir Your lot is indeed a dark and terrible one when your father is half face medical mask with vents ashamed of you. And we all knew this, so that we felt in our chests just as if we had swallowed a hard sun protection face mask with cooling fabric patagonia boiled egg whole. At least, this is what Oswald felt, and Father said once that Oswald, as the eldest, was the representative of the family, so, of course, the others felt the same. And then everybody said nothing for a short time. At last Father said You may go but remember The words that followed I am not going to tell you. It is no use telling you what you know before as they do in schools. And you must all have had such words said to you many times. We went away when it was over. The girls cried, and we boys got out books and began to read, so that nobody should think we cared. But we felt it deeply in our interior hearts, especially Oswald, who is the el.ind them housed in temples. Besides, the natives sun protection face mask with cooling fabric patagonia are very tender of all animals, replied Sir Modava. In the hospital for lame ducks and superannuated bullfrogs we visited in Bombay, do they take in sick cobras asked Felix. Do they nurse lame tigers They do not it would not be quite safe to do so. Morris, the monkey you shot will be decently buried, said the Hindu gentleman. I am willing for, though they eat them in some countries, I don t hanker after any monkey flesh, replied the young hunter. I met a man at my father s house who had lived for years in Africa, and he said they ate the boa constrictor there, the natives did, not the white people. So I have heard but many Hindus never eat meat at all, added Sir Modava, as the party retired to dress for dinner. The party were to dine at the palace with the Guicowar, and it was to be a state dinner. Though contrary to sun protection face mask with cooling fabric patagonia Hindu etiquette, the ladies were all invited, and they were treated with distinguished consideration. It was a very elaborate occasion, and a few speeches were made at the last of it. The principal one was by the king himself, who enlarged upon his relations with Lord Tremlyn and Sir Modava, whom he regarded as two of his best friends. From this point, he dwelt upon his esteem for the commander of the Guardian Mother, who had rendered a service to India in saving them from certain death, which they, better than he, could understand and appreciate. Captain Ringgold and General Noury made fitting replies and the party returned, escorted by a score of torch bearers, to the Garden of Pearls as the summer palace in which they were lodged was called. They appeared early in the morning, and after they had taken their coffee Louis and Felix took a long walk outside the palace walls. At the gate they saw a little animal which seemed disposed to make friends with them. They had brought their guns with them, and Felix was on the point of firing at him when Louis interposed. That s a mongoose, said the latter. Haven t you heard of him Never did. The creature is a sort of ichneumon, with a long body, extending back of his hind legs, which sun protection face mask with cooling fabric patagonia gradually decreases in size till it becomes his tail. His body is long, even without the portion of it which belongs to his caudal appendage. He has a small head and a sharp nose, and is something like a weasel. He has the reputation of being the great serpent killer of India, and many wonderful stories are told of him. He is very useful about a house in destroying rats and other small nuisances. The mongoose ran al.took the postcard she snatched it really, but took is a kinder word, considering everything and she looked at the address a long time. Then she turned it over and read what was on the back. Then she drew her breath in as far as it would go, and caught hold of the door post. Her face got awful. It was like the wax face of a dead king I saw once at Madame Tussaud s. Alice understood. She caught hold of the soldier s mother s hand and said Oh, NO it s NOT your boy Bill And the woman said nothing, but shoved the postcard into Alice s hand, and we both read it and it WAS her boy Bill. Alice gave her back the card. She had held on to the woman s hand all the time, and now she squeezed the hand, and held it against her face. But she could not say a word because she was crying so. The soldier s mother took the card again and she pushed Alice away, but it was not an unkind push, and she went in and shut the door and as Alice and Oswald went down the road Oswald looked back, and one of the windows of the cottage had a white blind. Afterwards the other windows had too. There were no blinds really to the cottage. It was aprons and things she had pinned up. Alice cried most of the morning, and so did the other girls. We wanted to do something for the soldier s mother, but you can do nothing when people s sons are shot. It is the most dreadful thing to want to do something for people who are unhappy, and not to know what to do. It was Noel who thought of what we COIULD do at last. He said, I suppose they don t put up tombstones to soldiers when they die in war. But there I mean Oswald said, Of course not. Noel said, I daresay you ll think it s silly, protect face mask but I don t care. Don t you think she d like it, if we put one up to HIM Not in the churchyard, of course, because we shouldn t be let, but in our garden, just where it joins on to the churchyard And we all thought it was a first rate idea. This is what we meant to put on the tombstone Here lies BILL SIMPKINS Who died fighting for Queen and Country. A faithful son, A son so dear, A soldier brave Lies buried here. Then we remembered that poor brave Bill was really buried far away in the Southern hemisphere, if at all. So we altered it to A soldier brave We weep for here. Then we looked out a nice flagstone in the stable yard, and we got a cold chisel out of the Dentist s toolbox, and began. But stone cutting is difficult and dangerous work. Oswald went at it a bit, but he chipped his thumb, and it bled so he had to chuck it. Then Dicky tried, and then Denny, but Dic.
Sun Protection Face Mask With Cooling Fabric Patagonia comers. Back he said in a voice that thrilled like music. Since when has Caesar feared children and students To the children he seemed to speak in the only language they knew but the learned gentleman heard in rather a strange accent, but quite intelligibly the lips of Caesar speaking sun protection face mask with cooling fabric patagonia in the Latin tongue, and in that tongue, a little stiffly, he answered It is a dream, O Caesar. A dream repeated Caesar. What is a sun protection face mask with cooling fabric patagonia dream This, said the learned gentleman. Not it, said Cyril, it s a sort of magic. We come out of another time and another place. And we want to ask you not to trouble about conquering Britain, said Anthea it s a poor little place, not worth bothering about. Are you from Britain the General asked. Your clothes are uncouth, but well woven, and your hair is short as the hair of Roman citizens, not long like the hair of barbarians, yet such I deem you to be. We re not, said Jane with angry eagerness we re not barbarians at all. We come from the country where the sun never sets, and we ve read about you in books and our disposable devilbis face mask country s full of fine things St Paul s, and the Tower of London, and Madame Tussaud s Exhibition, and Then the others stopped her. Don t talk nonsense, disposable earloop face masks said Robert in a bitter undertone. Caesar looked at the children a moment in silence. Then he called a soldier and spoke with him apart. Then he said aloud You three elder children may go where you will within the camp. Few children are privileged to see the camp sun protection face mask with cooling fabric patagonia of Caesar. The student and the smaller girl child will remain here with me. Nobody liked this but when Caesar said a thing that thing was so, and there was an end to it. So the three went. Left alone with Jane and the learned gentleman, the great Roman found it easy enough to turn them inside out. But it was not easy, even for him, to make head or tail of the insides of their minds when he had got at them. The learned gentleman insisted that the whole thing was a dream, and refused to talk much, on the ground that if he did he would wake up. Jane, closely questioned, was full of information about railways, electric lights, balloons, men of war, cannons, and dynamite. And do they fight with swords asked the General. Yes, swords and guns and cannons. Caesar wanted to know what guns were. You fire them, said Jane, and they go bang, and people fall kids washable medical face mask down dead. But what are guns like Jane found them hard to describe. But Robert has a toy one in his pocket, she said. So the others were recalled. The boys explained the pistol to Caesar very fully, and he looked at it with the g.ea and though not nearly so much was said about it afterwards as there was about the stuffed things, I think myself it was just as bad, though it was a sun protection face mask with cooling fabric patagonia good idea, too. He just got the hose and put the end over a branch of the cedar tree. Then we got the steps they clean windows with, and let the hose rest on the top of the steps and run. It was to be a waterfall, but it ran between the steps and was only wet and messy so we got Father s mackintosh and uncle s and covered the steps with them, so that the water ran down all right sun protection face mask with cooling fabric patagonia and was glorious, and it ran away in a stream across the grass where we had dug a little channel for it and the otter and the duck bill thing were as if in their native haunts. I hope all this is not very dull to read about. I know it was jolly good fun to do. Taking one thing with another, I don t know that we ever had a better time while it lasted. We got all the rabbits out of the hutches and put pink paper tails on to them, and hunted them with horns made reusable medical face mask out of The Times. They got away somehow, and before they were caught next day they had eaten a good many lettuces and other things. Oswald is very sorry for this. He rather likes the gardener. Denny wanted to put paper tails on the guinea pigs, and it was no use our telling him there was nothing to tie the paper on to. He thought we were kidding until we showed him, and then he said, Well, never mind , and got the girls to give him bits of the blue stuff left over from their dressing gowns. I ll make them sashes to tie round their little middles, he said. And he did, and the bows stuck up on the tops of their backs. One of the guinea pigs was never seen again, and the same with the tortoise when we had done his shell with vermilion paint. He crawled away and returned no more. Perhaps someone collected him and thought he was an expensive kind unknown in these cold latitudes. The lawn under the cedar was transformed into a dream of beauty, what with the stuffed creatures and the paper tailed things and the waterfall. And Alice said I wish the tigers did not look so flat. For of course with pillows you can only pretend it is a sleeping tiger getting ready to make a spring out at you. It is difficult to prop up tiger skins in a life like manner when there are no bones inside them, only pillows and sofa cushions. What about the beer stands I said. And we got two out of the cellar. With bolsters and string we fastened insides to the tigers and they were really fine. The legs of the beer stands did for tigers legs. It was inde.
