Those who are interested in the decision of the company, and in the events which followed in consequence of it, are referred to the next volume of the series HALF ROUND THE WORLD OR, SOME ADVENTURES AMONG THE UNCIVILIZED. The End.tly said a brief grace. Everybody was unusually social but as the commander had announced that the particulars of the wreck of the Travancore would be detailed in due time by Dr. Ferrolan, the subject was ignored, and the voyage of the Guardian Mother was the general subject of conversation. The chief steward had spread himself on the breakfast, and the meal was far more elaborate than usual and the wrecked trio proved that they had excellent appetites. CHAPTER VII DR. FERROLAN S EXPLANATION OF THE WRECK With the rising of the sun the gale had broken, and by the time the party in the cabin left the table, the north east monsoon was soothing the ocean with its gentle blast. The angry sea was rapidly becoming good natured again, though the waves were still high enough to give the ship an uneasy motion. But all the party, and no less the trio added to their number, had their sea legs on, and no reasonable motion disturbed any of them. The two engineers from the wreck of the Travancore had been as carefully looked after as the strangers in the main cabin. They had been supplied with clothing, and they had breakfasted in the mess room on the best the larder afforded. The third person brought in by the second cutter was the Hindu cook of the wrecked steamer but he spoke English very well, and had been otherwise Europeanized. He had been turned over to Baldy Bickling, the second cook of the ship, who had clothed and fed him, and seemed to be unable to do enough for him. The three gentlemen in the cabin were as medica face mask disposable sociable as could be desired and though it was Sunday morning, the scene at the tables had been very animated. When the meal was finished, the guests at their own request were shown over the ship and they were not at all reserved in the expression of their admiration at the elegance with which she had been voice changing protective face masks fitted up, and not less at the convenience of all the arrangements. Lord Tremlyn was particularly interested in the educational feature of the Guardian Mother, as Captain Ringgold explained his pet scheme in the library, or study, abaft the state cabin, as it was called on the plan of the vessel prepared by the gentleman for whom she had been built. The guests looked at the titles of the books, considerable additions to which had been made at Cairo, Alexandria, and elsewhere. This is not a library of romances, said his lordship with a smile, as he took in the encyclop aelig dias, books of travel, scientific treatises, and geographical works. No, sir they cover a broad range of useful information.
comf table. I ve got a potato on a boiling. medica face mask disposable When she had gone to attend to the potatoes the children looked at each other. Could it be that old Nurse had so changed that she no longer cared that they should have been away from home for twenty four hours all night in fact without any explanation whatever But the Psammead put its head out of its basket and said What s the matter Don t you understand You come back through the charm arch at the same time as you go through it. This isn t tomorrow Is it still yesterday asked Jane. No, it s today. The same as it s always been. It wouldn t do to go mixing up the present and the Past, and cutting bits out of one to fit into the other. Then all that adventure took no time at all You can call it that if you like, said the Psammead. It took none of the modern time, anyhow. That evening Anthea carried up a steak for the learned disposal face mask gentleman s dinner. She persuaded Beatrice, the maid of all work, who had given her the bangle with the blue stone, to let her do it. And she stayed and talked to him, by special invitation, while he ate the dinner. She told him the whole adventure, beginning with This afternoon we found ourselves on the bank of the River Nile, and ending up with, And then we remembered how to get back, and there we were in Regent s Park, and it hadn t taken any time at all. She did not tell anything about the charm or the Psammead, because that was forbidden, but the story was quite wonderful enough even as it was to entrance the learned gentleman. You are a most unusual little girl, he said. Who tells you all these things No one, said Anthea, they just happen. Make believe, he said slowly, as one who recalls and pronounces a long forgotten word. He sat long after she had left him. At last he roused himself with a start. I really must take a holiday, he said my nerves must be all out of order. I actually have a perfectly distinct impression that the little girl from the rooms below came in and gave me a coherent and graphic picture of life as I conceive it to have been in pre dynastic Egypt. Strange what tricks the mind will play I shall have to be more careful. He finished his bread conscientiously, and actually went for a mile walk before he went back to his work. CHAPTER 6. THE WAY TO BABYLON How many miles to Babylon Three score and ten Can I get there by candle light medica face mask disposable Yes, and back again Jane was singing to her doll, rocking it to and fro in the house which she had made for herself and it. The roof of the house was the dining table, and the walls we., oaks and other trees. On the banks are flowers yarrow, meadow sweet, willow herb, loosestrife, and lady s bed straw. Oswald learned the names of all these trees and plants on the day of the picnic. The others didn t remember them, but Oswald did. He is a boy of what they call relenting memory. The anglers were sitting here and there on the shady bank among the grass and the different flowers I have named. Some had dogs with them, and some umbrellas, and some had only their wives and families. We should have liked to talk to them and ask how they liked their lot, and what kinds of fish there were, and whether they were nice to eat, but we did not like to. Denny had seen anglers before and he knew they liked to be talked to, but though he spoke to them quite like to equals he did not ask the things we wanted to know. He just asked whether they d had any luck, and what bait they used. And they medica face mask disposable answered him back politely. I am glad I am not an angler. It is an immovable amusement, and, as often as not, no fish to speak of after all. Daisy and Dora had stayed at home Dora s foot was nearly well but they seem really to like sitting still. I think Dora likes to have a little girl to order about. Alice never would stand it. When we got to Stoneham Lock Denny said he should go home and fetch his fishing rod. H. O. went with him. This left four of us Oswald, Alice, Dicky, and Noel. We went on down the towing path. The lock shuts up that sounds as if it was like the lock on a door, but it is very otherwise between one pen of the river and the next the pen where the anglers were was full right up over 3m 9010 disposable n95 particulate respirator face mask the roots of the grass and flowers. But the pen below was nearly empty. You can see the poor river s bones, Noel said. And so you could. Stones and mud and dried branches, and here and there an old kettle or a tin pail with no bottom to it, that some bargee had chucked in. From walking so much along the river we knew many of the bargees. Bargees are the captains and crews of the big barges that are pulled up and down the river by slow horses. The horses do not swim. They walk on the towing path, with a rope tied to them, and the other end to the barge. So it gets pulled along. The bargees we knew were a good friendly sort, and used to let us go all over the barges when they were in a good temper. They were not at all the sort of bullying, cowardly fiends in human form that the young hero at Oxford fights a crowd of, single handed, in books. The river does not smell nice when its bones are showing. But we went a.ver the Punjab. They were next conveyed to the mosque of Jehanghir, built of red stone, and so much like a score of other mosques that they were not much interested in the building. The mosque of Vazir Khan pleased them more for it was a beautiful edifice, though crumbling before the ravages of time. But even here they were more pleased on observing the loafers around the entrance and in the court in front of it. An old bald headed Hindu, with a beard as white as snow, was a study to the boys and perhaps it was fortunate that the subject of their remarks did not medica face mask disposable understand English, or there might have been another war in the Punjab. The cook shops in the street were instructive to them, and they watched the customers with interest but, as they had attempted to eat in a Turkish restaurant in Constantinople, they were content with looking on. The minarets of the Vazir Khan pleased all the party, for they were certainly very beautiful. They went to the Golden Temple medica face mask disposable of Amritsar in the afternoon, and were impressed with the beauty of its surroundings. Lahore was rather a disappointment to the tourists, though it would not have been if they had not spent some days in Bombay before visiting it. The train in which they had come from Baroda was to be used by them as far as Calcutta, and they were ready to leave that night. medical disposable earloop face masks The journey was by a medica face mask disposable different route from that by which they had come, and through a more densely populated region. It was a bright moonlight night when the train passed out of the capital of the Punjab. They had gathered in what they had come to call the Conference Hall compartment and as they looked out into the light of the evening they believed they could see some of the peaks of the Himalayas, though Lord Tremlyn doubted it. Possibly they saw some of the peaks, for Mount Nauda Devi was within a hundred miles 3 ply non woven medical face mask of the point on the railroad where they would be in the morning and this is more than twenty five thousand feet high. Mont Blanc is seen in very clear weather half face protective mask cool at the distance of a hundred miles, and it is about eight thousand feet less in height. They were awake very early in the morning, and they certainly saw some high mountains in the distance, but could not identify them by name. At eight o clock the train rolled into the station at Delhi, perhaps the most wonderful city of India. CHAPTER XXIX THE WONDERFUL CITY OF DELHI The Mohammedans of Bombay whose acquaintance General Noury had made were wealthy and influential men they had notified their friends in other cities of the.
Medica Face Mask Disposable ey are practically atheists, though there are many good things in their system. They recognize no omniscient, omnipresent, all powerful Supreme Being, who presides over the universe and all that is in it. They are pessimists, and believe that life, on the whole, is misery, a curse rather than a blessing. I have given you only a faint outline of what Buddhism is. It has points in which it resembles Christianity. Buddha is dead and gone but his followers put up petitions to him, though there is no one to disposable protective surgical mask medica face mask disposable hear and answer their prayers. But I must stop for the want of time rather than because there is nothing more to be said and I have done no more than touch the subject. But it is not very different from Brahminism, suggested Professor Giroud. You are quite right, Professor, replied Sir Modava. Brahma means the universal spirit but it is not a personal divinity to be worshipped. I believe there is medical face mask rite aid not an idol or sculpture in all India that represents Brahma. Something that passes for this mystic spirit is represented with four heads. But is there not a new church or philosophy of recent date I mean Brahmo Somaj inquired Dr. Hawkes. Rammohun medica face mask disposable Roy, or Rajah Ram Mohan Rai, was a Hindu ruler in the Presidency of Bengal, born in 1772. His ancestors were Brahmins of high birth. He studied Sanskrit, Arabian, and Persian, and was a profound scholar and philosopher. When he began to have some doubt about the faith of his fathers, he went to Thibet to study Buddhism, where he was so outspoken that he offended the priests and others, and his religious belief brought upon him the enmity of his own family. In 1803 he lived in Benares, and held a public office at one time. He published works in the languages with which he was familiar, directed against idolatry, which he labored to uproot. He succeeded to abundant wealth at the death of his brother in 1811. His influence assisted in the abolition of the suttee, and in bringing about other reforms. He published The Precepts of Jesus, accepting his morality, but denying his divinity and the truth of the miracles. More than fifty years ago he started an association which became the Brahmo Somaj, which is a living and working medica face mask disposable society still. He went to England in 1831, and was received with great respect and friendliness. I have great reverence for the man, though I do not accept all his religious views. Lord Tremlyn informed this company in regard to the divisions of caste, so that I think we have a tolerable idea of the matter, said Captain Ringgold, reading from a pap.r dividends to stockholders were then paid out of the taxes assessed on the people of India. They could not trade and could not govern except under the control of Parliament. All the wars of India have been fought by the British nation. After the mutiny, of which more hereafter, the company was compelled to cede its powers to the crown in 1858. The native soldiers of Bengal were called Sepoys, and the name has been applied to all native troops. Some small mutinies occurred in this arm medica face mask disposable of the service in the presidency. Early in 1857 the garrison of Meerut, near Delhi, revolted, and the British troops failed to suppress it. The Sepoys marched to Delhi, where they were joined by the native troops and the mob. The descendant of the Great Mogul, who lived in the palace of his ancestors under British protection, was proclaimed emperor, how to put on a medical face mask and his empire re established. Probably 90,000 soldiers, infantry and cavalry, were in a state of rebellion. In many medica face mask disposable instances they had murdered their officers and their families. They were spread over a broad country, and held forts, arsenals, and treasuries. They were disciplined troops armed feline coronavirus test with European artillery and muskets, and supplied with ammunition. In portions of the country the British were isolated, as in the camp before Delhi, and in the works at Agra, Allahabad, and Lucknow. The mutiny extended over an area of 100,000 square miles, with a population of 40,000,000. It came at the worst season of the year and if it had not been speedily suppressed, it would have spread over the whole country. Many believed that the knell of the empire had sounded. At that time there were 40,000 European troops Land, ho medica face mask disposable shouted the lookout man and the cry was repeated by the sailors and the officers. We will attend to the land now, and I will resume latter, said Lord Tremlyn, as he descended from the rostrum. CHAPTER XIV SIR HENRY HAVELOCK AND THE MUTINY The announcement that land was in sight produced some excitement, and the speaker good naturedly paused to enable the company to see whatever was to be seen. They looked to the eastward, but they could see nothing. They stood upon the promenade, and strained their eyes to the utmost but it required a nautical eye to make land out of the dim haze in the distance, for that was all there was of it. I can readily understand your desire to obtain the first view of India, said Lord Tremlyn. But they will not obtain it yet a while, added the commander. Louis and Felix had ascended the fore rigging, and discovered what might have been.
