Face Protection Mask hough it had been cut off. He spoke English as fluently as the general. He invited the party to step to a certain point, and view the mosque as a whole. The wall of the esplanade was a continued series of pointed arches, with a handsome frieze above it. On the elevated platform was a colonnade of the same arches on each side, with a pillared tower at each corner, interrupted only at the grand entrances. It looked as though one might walk entirely around the vast structure in the shade of this colonnade. Within the enclosure could be seen three domes, the one in the centre overtopping the other two, two lofty minarets, with small domes at the summit, supported by several face protection mask columns, and an immense pointed arch leading into the great mosque. The whole edifice is built of red sandstone. The visitors mounted one of the staircases, and entered a court paved face protection mask with marble tiles. They walked around the esplanade under the arches of the colonnade, or cloisters face protection mask as some call them, and finally entered the mosque itself. face mask disposable face protection mask The interior was very simple in its style, but very beautiful. The roof, pavement, pillars, and walls were of white marble, ornamented with carvings in the stone. Slabs of black marble presented sentences to the praise of God, and in memory of Shah Jehan, who was the founder of the mosque. Formerly no person not a Mussulman was permitted to enter this mosque, said Sir Modava, while the general and his host were engaged in their devotions but for more than thirty years it has been open to all. From the top of one of the minarets a very fine view of the surrounding country can be obtained but the ascent is by a very narrow flight of circular stairs, two hundred in number. He advised Dr. Hawkes and Uncle Moses not to attempt it. A venerable mollah was found, who put half a dozen of the party in the way of going up and they reported the view as worth the labor and fatigue. The aged priest then proposed to show them the relics of the mosque and a fee was paid to him, and to the man who unlocked a door for their admission. The mollah produced a small golden box, from which he took a silver case. Muttering the name of Allah very solemnly all the time, he unscrewed the top of the receptacle, and took from it use mask to protect face in shower a single hair, about six inches long, red and stiff, and fixed in a silver tube. The beard of the holy Prophet he announced, with a reverent face protection mask inclination of his head and the two Mussulmans of the party followed his example. According to the face protection mask tradition, this hair really came from the beard of Mohammed, sa.t round a turn in the road and came plump into a lot of soldiers. Only they were not medica face mask disposable red coats. They were dressed in grey and silver. And it was a sort of furzy common place, and three roads branching out. The men were lying about, with some of their belts undone, smoking pipes and cigarettes. It s not British soldiers, Alice said. Oh dear, oh dear, I m afraid it s more enemy. You didn t sow the army seed anywhere else, did you, H. O. dear H. O. was positive he hadn t. But perhaps lots more came up where we did sow them, he said they re all over England by now very likely. I don t know how many men punk motorcycle biker cosplay leather river half face sports protective mask can grow out of one dragon s tooth. Then Noel said, It was best face mask for protection my doing anyhow, and I m not afraid, and he walked straight up to the nearest soldier, who was cleaning his pipe with a piece of grass, and said Please, are you the enemy The man said No, young Commander in Chief, we re the English. Then Oswald took command. Where is the General he said. We re out of generals just now, Field Marshal, the man said, and his voice was a gentleman s voice. Not a single one in stock. We might suit you in majors now and captains are quite cheap. Competent corporals going for a song. And we have a very nice colonel, too quiet to ride or drive. Oswald does not mind chaff at proper times. But this was not one. You seem to be taking it very easy, he said with disdainful expression. This IS an easy, said the grey soldier, sucking at his pipe to see if it would draw. I suppose YOU don t care if the enemy gets into Maidstone or not exclaimed Oswald bitterly. If I were a soldier I d rather face protection mask die than be beaten. The soldier saluted. Good old patriotic sentiment he said, smiling at the heart felt boy. But Oswald could bear no more. Which is the Colonel he asked. Over there near the grey horse. The one lighting a cigarette H. O. asked. Yes but I say, kiddie, he won t stand any jaw. There s not face protection mask an ounce of vice about him, but he s peppery. He might kick out. You d better bunk. Better what asked H. O. Bunk, bottle, scoot, skip, vanish, exit, said the soldier. That s what you d do when the fighting begins, said H. O. He is often rude like that half face medical mask but it was what we all thought, all the same. The soldier only laughed. A spirited but hasty altercation among ourselves in whispers ended in our allowing Alice to be the one to speak to the Colonel. It was she who wanted to. However peppery he is he won t kick a girl, she said, and perhaps this was true. But of course we all went with her. So there were six of us to stand in front of the Colone.
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 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 s teas, but I suppose soldiers get things cheaper than civilians, which is only right. face protection mask 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 medical face masks hk where to buy never told the others a word of this. Their young breasts were all panting with joy because they had saved their country a.st hold on here till somebody comes. Then Alice said, speaking chokily because she had not quite done crying Let s wave a flag. By the most fortunate accident she had on one of her Sunday petticoats, though it was Monday. This petticoat is white. She tore it out at the gathers, and we tied it to Denny s stick, and took turns to wave it. We had laughed at his carrying a stick before, but we were very sorry now that we had done face protection mask so. And the tin dish the Lent pie was baked in we polished with our handkerchiefs, and moved it about in the sun so that the sun might strike on it and signal our distress to some of the outlying farms. This was perhaps the most dreadful adventure that had then ever happened to us. Even Alice had now stopped thinking of Mr Richard Ravenal, and thought only of the lurker in ambush. We all felt our desperate situation keenly. I must say Denny behaved like anything but a white mouse. When it was the others turn list three examples of situations when masks, protective eyewear for face shields should be worn to wave, he sat on the leads of the tower and held Alice s and Noel s hands, and said poetry to them yards and yards of it. By some strange fatality it seemed to comfort them. It wouldn t have me. He said The Battle of the Baltic , and Gray s Elegy , right through, though I think he got wrong in places, and the Revenge , and Macaulay s thing about Lars Porsena and the Nine Gods. And when it was his turn he waved like a man. I will try not to call him a white mouse any more. He was a brick that day, and no mouse. The sun was low in the heavens, and we were sick of waving and very hungry, when we saw a cart in the road below. We waved like mad, and shouted, and Denny screamed exactly like a railway whistle, a thing none of us had known before that he could do. And the cart stopped. And presently we saw a figure with a white beard among the trees. It was our Pig man. We bellowed the awful truth to him, and when he had taken it in he thought at first we were kidding he came up and let us out. He had got the pig luckily it was a very small one and we were not particular. Denny and Alice sat on the front of the cart care and protect face mask with the Pig man, and the rest of us got in with the pig, and the man drove us right home. You may think we talked it over on the way. Not us. We went to sleep, among the pig, and before long the Pig man stopped and got us to make room for Alice and Denny. There was a net over the cart. I never was so sleepy in my life, though it was not more than bedtime. Generally, after anything exciting, you are punished but this could not be, because we had only gone for a walk.loor of the hut, with the Secret in her lap. It was the High born Babe Oswald was so overcome that he sat down suddenly, just like Betsy Trotwood did in David Copperfield, which just shows what a true author Dickens is. You ve done it this time, he said. I suppose you know you re a baby stealer I face protection mask m not, Dora said. I ve adopted him. Then it was you, Dicky said, who scuttled the perambulator in the wood Yes, Alice said we couldn t get it over the stile unless Dora put down the Baby, and we were afraid of the nettles for his legs. His name is to be Lord Edward. But, Dora really, don t you think If you d been there you d have done the same, said Dora firmly. The gipsies had gone. Of course something had frightened them and they fled from justice. And the little darling was awake and held out his arms to me. No, he hasn t cried a bit, and I know all about babies I ve often nursed Mrs Simpkins s daughter s baby when she brings it up on Sundays. They have bread and milk to eat. You take him, Alice, and I ll go and get some bread and milk for him. Alice took the noble brat. It was horribly lively, and squirmed about in her arms, and wanted to crawl on the floor. She could only keep it quiet by saying things to it a boy would be ashamed even to think of saying, such as Goo goo , and Did ums was , and Ickle ducksums, then. When Alice used these expressions the Baby laughed and chuckled and replied Daddadda , Bababa , or Glueglue. But if Alice stopped her remarks for an instant the thing screwed its face up as if it was going to cry, but she never gave it time to begin. It was a rummy little animal. Then Dora came back with the bread and milk, and they fed the noble infant. It was greedy and slobbery, but all three girls seemed unable to keep their eyes and hands off it. They looked at it exactly as if it was pretty. We boys stayed watching them. There was no amusement left for us now, for Oswald saw that Dora s Secret knocked the bottom out of the perambulator. When the infant aristocrat had eaten a hearty meal it sat on Alice s lap and played with the amber heart she wears that Albert face protection mask s uncle brought her from Hastings after the business of the bad sixpence and the nobleness of Oswald. Now, said Dora, this is a council, so I want to be business like. The Duckums Darling has been stolen away its wicked stealers have deserted the Precious. We ve got it. Perhaps its ancestral halls are miles and miles away. I vote we keep the little Lovey Duck till it s advertised for. If Albert s uncle lets you, said Dicky d.
Face Protection Mask gardens and no roads. Just huts built of wood and twigs and clay, and roofed with great palm leaves, dumped down anywhere. The doors of these houses were very face protection mask low, like the doors of dog kennels. The ground between them was not paths or streets, but just yellow sand trampled very hard how to make a home medical face mask and smooth. In the middle of the village there was a hedge that enclosed what seemed to be a piece of ground about as big as their own garden in Camden Town. No sooner were the children well within the inner thorn hedge than dozens of men and women and children came crowding round from behind and inside the huts. The girl stood protectingly in front of the four children, and said They are wonder children from beyond the desert. They bring marvellous gifts, and I have said that it is peace between us and them. She held out her arm with the Lowther Arcade bangle on it. The children from London, where nothing now surprises anyone, had never before seen so many people look so astonished. They crowded round the children, touching their clothes, their shoes, the buttons on the boys jackets, and the coral of the girls necklaces. Do say something, whispered Anthea. We come, said Cyril, with some dim remembrance of a dreadful day when he had had to wait in an outer office while his father interviewed a solicitor, and there had been nothing to read but the Daily Telegraph we come from the world where the sun never sets. And peace with honour is what we want. We are the great Anglo Saxon or conquering race. Not that we want to conquer YOU, he added hastily. We only want to look at your houses and your well, at all you ve got here, and then we shall return to our own place, and tell of all that we have seen so that your name may be famed. Cyril s speech didn t keep the crowd from pressing round and looking as eagerly as ever at the clothing of the children. Anthea had an idea that these people had never seen woven stuff before, and she saw how wonderful and strange it must seem to people who had never had any clothes but the skins of beasts. The sewing, too, of modern clothes seemed to astonish them very much. They must have been able to sew themselves, by the way, for men who seemed to be the chiefs wore knickerbockers of goat skin or deer skin, fastened round the waist with twisted strips of hide. And the women wore long skimpy skirts of animals skins. The people were not very tall, their hair was fair, and men and women both had it short. Their eyes were blue, and that seemed odd in Egypt. Most of them were tattooed like sailo.
