Black Sun Protection Face Mask he left so much a year to be spent on repairing of it Money that might have put bread in honest folks mouths. We asked was it a church then, or not. Church he said. Not it. It s more of a tombstone, from all I can make out. They do say there was a curse on him that built it, and he wasn t to rest in earth or sea. So he s buried half way up the tower if you can call it buried. Can you go up it Oswald asked. Lord love you yes a fine view from the top they say. I ve never been up myself, though I ve lived in sight of it, boy and man, these sixty three years come harvest. Alice asked whether you had to go past the dead and buried person to get to the top of the tower, and could you see the coffin. No, no, the man said that s all hid away behind a slab of stone, that is, with reading on it. You ve no call to be afraid, missy. It s daylight all the way up. But I wouldn t go there after dark, so I wouldn t. It s always open, day and night, and they say tramps sleep there now and again. Anyone who likes can sleep there, but it wouldn t be me. We thought that it would not be us either, but we wanted to go more than ever, especially when the man said My own great uncle of the mother s side, he was one of the masons that set up the stone slab. Before then it was thick glass, and you could see the dead man lying inside, as he d left it in his will. He was lying there in a glass coffin with his best clothes blue satin and silver, my uncle said, such as was all the go in his day, with his wig on, and his sword beside him, what he used to wear. My uncle said his hair had grown out from under his wig, and his beard was down to the toes of him. My uncle he always upheld that that dead man was no deader than you and me, but was in a sort of fit, a transit, I think they call it, and looked for him to waken into life again some day. But the doctor said not. It was only something done to him like Pharaoh in black sun protection face mask the Bible afore he half mask airsoft face protection was buried. Alice whispered to Oswald that we should be late for tea, and wouldn t it be better to go back now directly. But he said If you re afraid, say so and you needn t come in anyway but I m going on. The man who was going for the pig put us down at a gate quite near the tower at least it looked so until we began to walk again. We thanked him, and he said Quite welcome, and drove off. We were rather quiet going through the wood. What we had heard made us very funny drawing medical face mask anxious to see the tower all except Alice, who would keep talking about tea, though not a greedy girl by nature. None of the others e.he votes were counted, there was only Pg 64 one single dandelion blossom found in the hat. Tommy black sun protection face mask Woggs was mad, for he felt that his companions had slighted him but it was only because he was so vain and silly. People do not often think much of those who think a great deal of themselves. There was a great demand for maple leaves, and David White was chosen the second leader, and had nearly all the Pg 65 votes. The boys then gave three cheers for the leaders, and the lines were formed. Mr. Lee told Henry and David just how they were to march, and the band at once began to play Hail Columbia. The children first black sun protection face mask marched, two by two, round the lawn, and then down the centre. When they reached the end, one leader turned off hi res asian wearing medical face mask to the Pg 66 right, and the other to the left, each followed by a single line of the children. Passing round the lawn, they came together again on the other side. Then they formed a great circle, a circle within a circle, and concluded the march with the grand basket. This was certainly a very simple play, but the children enjoyed it ever so much Pg 67 I mean all but vain Master Woggs, who was so greatly displeased because he was not chosen one of the leaders, that he said there was no fun at all in the whole thing. About half an hour was spent in marching, and then Mr. Lee proposed a second game. The children wanted to march a little longer but there were a great number Pg 68 of things to be done before night, and so it was thought best, on the whole, to try a new game. chapter 4 When the children had done marching, Mrs. Lee took charge of the games. Several new plays, which none of them had heard of before, were introduced. The boys and girls all liked them very well, and the time passed away most rapidly. Just before they were going Pg 72 to supper, an old man, with a fiddle in his hand, tottered into the garden, and down the lawn. He was a very queer looking old man. He had long white hair, and a long white beard. He was dressed in old, worn out, soldier clothes, in part, and had a sailor s hat upon his head, so that they could not tell whether he was a soldier or a sailor. As he approached the children, black sun protection face mask Pg 73 they emf face protection mask began to laugh with all their might and he certainly was a very funny old man. His long beard and hair, his tattered finery, and his hobbling walk, would have made almost any one laugh much more a company of children as full of fun as those who were attending the birthday party. Children, said the old Pg 74 man, as he took off his hat and made a low bow, I heard there.
n t you Yes, said Anthea. I want to know how it is that the King has gone Excuse me, but you should say the King may he live for ever , said the Queen gently. I beg your pardon, Anthea hastened to say the King may he live for ever has gone to fetch home his fourteenth wife I don t think even Bluebeard had as many as that. And, besides, he hasn t killed YOU at any rate. The Queen looked bewildered. She means, explained Robert, that English kings only have one wife at least, Henry the Eighth had seven or eight, but not all at once. In our country, said the Queen scornfully, a king would not reign a day who had only one wife. No one would respect him, and quite right too. Then are all the other thirteen alive asked Anthea. Of course they are poor mean spirited things I don t associate with them, of course, I am the Queen they re only the wives. I see, said Anthea, gasping. But oh, my dears, the Queen went on, such a to do as there s been about this last wife You never did It really was TOO funny. We wanted an Egyptian princess. The King may he live for ever has got a wife from most of the important nations, and he had set his heart on an Egyptian one to complete his collection. Well, of course, to begin with, we sent a handsome present of gold. The Egyptian king sent back some horses quite a few he s fearfully stingy and he said he liked the gold very much, but what they were really short of was lapis lazuli, so of course we sent him some. But by that time he d begun to use the gold to cover the beams of the roof of the Temple of the Sun God, and he hadn t nearly enough to finish the job, so we sent some more. And so it went on, oh, for years. You see each journey takes at least six months. And at last we asked the hand of his daughter in marriage. Yes, and then said Anthea, who wanted to get to the princess part of the story. Well, then, said the Queen, when he d got everything out of us that he could, and only given the meanest presents in return, he sent to say he would esteem the honour of an alliance very highly, only unfortunately he hadn t any daughter, but he hoped one would be born soon, and if so, she should certainly be reserved for the King of Babylon What a trick said Cyril. Yes, wasn t it So then we said his black sun protection face mask sister would do, and then there were more gifts and more journeys and now at last the tiresome, black haired thing is coming, and the King may he live for ever has gone seven days journey black sun protection face mask to meet her at Carchemish. And he s gone in his best chariot, the one inlaid with lapis lazuli a.n found, to their surprise, that the old man was Mr. Lee, who had dressed himself up in this disguise to please them. The supper was now ready, and all the children were invited to the tent. They had played so hard that all of them had excellent appetites, Pg 91 and the supper was just as nice as a supper could be. It was now nearly dark, and the children had to go home but all of them declared the birthday party of Flora was the best they ever attended. Only to think, said Flora, when she went to bed that night, the old fiddler was my father Pg 92 LIZZIE. Decorative divider bar 2 Mother, what ails our Lizzie dear, So cold and still she lies She does not speak a word to day, And closed her soft blue eyes. Why won t she look at me again, And laugh and play once more I cannot make face protection mask splitting wood her look at me As she used to look before. Her face and neck as marble white, Pg 93 And, O, so very cold Why don t you warm her, mother dear, Your cloak around her fold Her little hand is cold as ice, Upon her waveless breast, So pure, black sun protection face mask I thought I could see through The little hand I pressed. Your darling sister s dead, my child She cannot see you best disposable face mask now The damps of death are gath ring there Upon her marble brow. She cannot speak to you again, Pg 94 Her lips are sealed in disposable face masks white earloo death That little hand will never move, Nor come surgical face mask, medical supply that fleeting breath. All robed in white, and decked with flowers, We ll lay her in the tomb The flower that bloomed so sweetly here, No more on earth will bloom But in our hearts we ll lay her up, And love her all the more, Because she died in life s spring time, Ere earth had won her o er. Nay, nay, my child, she is not dead, Pg 95 Although she slumbers there, And cold and still her marble brow, And free from pain and care. She slept, and passed from earth to heaven, And won her early crown An angel now she dwells above, And looks in triumph down. She is not dead, for Jesus died That she might live again. Forbid them not, the Saviour said, And blessed dear sister then. Her little lamp this morn went out Pg 96 On earth s time bounded shore But angels bright in heaven this morn Relighted it once more. Some time we, too, shall fall asleep, To wake in heaven above, And meet our angel Lizzie there In realms of endless love. We ll bear sweet sister in our hearts, And then there ll ever be An angel there to keep our souls From sin and sorrow free. The End CHAPTER 1. THE PSAMMEAD There were once four children who spent their summer holidays in a white house, happily situated between a sandpit and a chalkpit. One day.he Riverdale school found it hard work to secure the attention of their scholars on the forenoon of that day, for all the boys and girls in the neighborhood were thinking about the party. As early as one o clock in Pg 49 the afternoon the children began to collect at the house of Mr. Lee, and at the end of an hour all who had received invitations were present. The band had arrived, and at a signal from Mr. Lee the music commenced. Now, father, we are all here. What shall we do asked Flora, who was so excited she did not know which Pg 50 way to turn, or how to proceed to entertain the party. Wait a few minutes, and let the children listen to the music. They seem to enjoy it very well. But we want to play something, father. Very soon, my child, we will play something. What shall we play, father There are plenty of plays. Pg 51 Wouldn t you like to march a little while to the music March Yes, march to the tune of Hail, Columbia. I will show you how to do it. I don t know what you mean, father. Well, I will black sun protection face mask show you in a few minutes. When the band had played a little while longer, Mr. Lee assembled the children in the Pg 52 middle of the lawn, and asked them if they would like to march. They were pleased sun & dust protection half face cover mask for sale with the idea, though some of them thought it would be rather tame amusement for such an exciting occasion. You want two leaders, and I think you had better choose them yourselves. It would be the most proper to select two black sun protection face mask boys. Mr. Lee thought the choice Pg 53 of the leaders would amuse them so he proposed that they should vote for them. How shall we vote, father asked Frank. Three of the children must retire, and pick out four persons and the two of these four who get the most votes shall be the leaders. Mr. Lee appointed two girls and one boy to be on this Pg 54 committee but while he was doing so, Tommy Woggs said he did not think this was a good play. I don t think they will choose the best leaders, said Tommy. Don t black sun protection face mask you, Mr. Woggs asked Mr. Lee, laughing. No, sir, I do not. What do any of these boys know about such things said Tommy, with a sneer. I have Pg 55 been black sun protection face mask to New York, and have seen a great many parades. Have you, indeed Yes, sir, I have. And you think you would make a better leader than any of the others I think so, sir. All the children laughed heartily at Master Woggs, who was so very modest None of these boys and girls have ever been to New York, Pg 56 added Tommy, his vanity increasing every moment. That is very true and perhaps the children will select you as their leader. They can.
Black Sun Protection Face Mask e and terror. The children went through the arch with a quickness born of long practice. But Jane stayed in the middle of the arch and looked back. The others, standing on the dining room carpet in Fitzroy Street, turned and saw her still in the arch. Someone s holding her, cried Cyril. We must go back. But they pulled at Jane s hands just to see if she would come, and, of course, she respirators disposable face mask did come. Then, as usual, the arch was little again and there they all were. Oh, I do wish you hadn t Jane said crossly. It WAS so interesting. The priest had come in and he was kicking the soldier, and telling him he d done it now, and they must take the jewels and flee for their lives. And did they I don t know. You interfered, said Jane ungratefully. I SHOULD have liked to see the last of it. As a matter of fact, none of them had seen the last of it if by it Jane meant the adventure of the Priest and the Soldier. CHAPTER 12. THE SORRY PRESENT AND THE EXPELLED LITTLE BOY Look here, said Cyril, sitting on the dining table and swinging his legs I really have got it. Got what was the not unnatural rejoinder of the others. Cyril was making a boat with a penknife and a piece of wood, and the girls were making warm frocks for their dolls, for the weather was growing chilly. Why, don t you see It s really not any good our going into the Past looking for that Amulet. The Past s as full of different times as as the sea is of sand. We re simply bound to hit upon the wrong time. We might spend our black sun protection face mask lives looking for the Amulet and never see a sight of it. Why, it s the end of September already. It s like looking for black sun protection face mask a needle in A bottle of hay I know, interrupted Robert but if we don t go on doing that, what ARE we to do That s just it, said Cyril in mysterious accents. Oh, BOTHER Old Nurse had come in with the tray of knives, forks, and glasses, and was getting the tablecloth and table napkins out of the chiffonier drawer. It s always meal times just when you come to anything interesting. And a nice interesting handful YOU D be, Master Cyril, said old Nurse, if I wasn t to bring your meals up to time. Don t you begin grumbling now, fear you get something to grumble AT. I wasn t grumbling, said Cyril quite untruly but it does always happen like that. You deserve to HAVE something happen, said old Nurse. Slave, slave, slave for you day and night, and never a word of thanks Why, you do everything beautifully, said Anthea. It s the first time any of you s troubled to say so, anyhow, said Nurse shortly. What s the use of SAYIN. ?>
