Define Face Mask Medical hooling, and George himself progressed so slowly in learning to read that he was at times tempted to give up the effort in despair. Of his late outburst against Abel he afterwards repented, as impolitic, and was soon good friends again with his very placable teacher. Much of the time when he should have been at work did George spend in puzzling over his position. Sometimes, as from an upper window of the mill he saw the little Jan in Abel s arms, define face mask medical he would mutter, If a body were to kidnap un, would they advertise he, I wonders and after some consideration would shake his white head doubtfully, saying, No, they wants to get rid of un, or they wouldn t have brought un here. Happily for poor little Jan, the unscrupulous rustic rejected the next idea which came to him as too doubtful of success. I wonder if they d come down something handsome to them as could tell em the young varmint was off their hands for good and all. Twould save un ten shilling a week. Ten shilling a week I heard un with my own ears. I d a kep un for five, if they d asked me. I wonders now. Little uns like that does get stole by gipsies sometimes. Varmer Smith s son were, and never heard on again. They falls into a mill race too sometimes. They be so venturesome. But I doubt twouldn t do. Them as it belongs to might be glad enough to get rid of un, and n95 mask radiation save their credit and their money too by define face mask medical face mask what does it do turning upon I after all. The miller s man puzzled himself in vain. He could think of no mode of action at once safe and certain of success. He did not even know whether what he possessed had any value, or how or where to make use of it. But a sort of dim hope of seeing his way yet kept him about the mill, and he persevered in the effort to learn to read, and kept his big ears open for any thing that might drop from the miller or his wife to throw light on the history of Jan, with whom his hopes were bound up. Meanwhile, with a dogged patience, he bided his time. CHAPTER VIII. VISITORS AT THE MILL. A WINDMILLER OF THE THIRD GENERATION. CURE FOR WHOOPING COUGH. MISS AMABEL ADELINE AMMABY. DOCTORS DISAGREE. One of the earliest of define face mask medical Jan s remembrances of those remembrances, I mean, which remained with him when childhood was past was define face mask medical of little Miss Amabel, from the Grange, being held in the hopper of the windmill for whooping cough. Jan was between three and four years old at this time, the idol of his foster mother, and a great favorite with his adopted brothers and sisters. A quaint little fellow he was, with a broad, intellectual looking face, serious to old fashionedness, very fair, and with eyes like slans. He was standing one morning at Mrs. Lake s apron string, his arms clasped lovingly, but somewhat too tightly, round the waist of a sandy kitten, who submitt.he young gentlemen. What could it mean Mr. Bartram seemed to have awakened to define face mask medical extraordinary energy, and was talking rapidly. Bill heard the words lime light and large sheet, and thought they must be planning a magic lantern exhibition, but 3m full face mask with filter was puzzled by catching the word turnip. At last, as he was rounding the corner of a bed of geraniums, he distinctly heard Mr. Bartram ask They cut the man s head off, didn t they Then they were talking about the ghost, after all Bill gave the machine a jerk, and to his dismay sliced a branch off one of the geraniums. What was to be done He must tell Master Arthur, but he could not interrupt him just now so on he drove, feeling very much dispirited, and by no means cheered by hearing shouts of laughter from the party on the grass. When one is puzzled and out of spirits, it is no consolation to hear other people laughing over a 213 private joke moreover, Bill felt that if they were still on the subject of the murdered man and his ghost, their merriment was very unsuitable. Whatever was going on, it was quite evident that Mr. Bartram was the leading spirit of it, for Bill could see Master Arthur waving the one legged donkey in an ecstasy, as he clapped his friend on the back till the eye glass danced upon his nose. At last Mr. Bartram threw himself back as if closing a discussion, and said loud enough for Bill to hear You never heard of a bully who wasn t a coward. Bill thought of Bully Tom, and how he had said he dared not risk the chance of meeting with a ghost, and began to think that this was a clever young gentleman, after all. Just then Master Arthur called to him and he took the bit of broken geranium and went. Oh, Willie said Master Arthur, we ve been talking over your misfortunes geranium fiddle sticks put it in your button hole your misfortunes, I say, and for to night at any rate we intend to help you out of them. John ahem will be ahem engaged to night, and unable to take his class as usual but this gentleman has kindly consented to fill his place Hear, hear, said the gentleman alluded to , and if you ll come to night, like a good lad, he and I will walk back with you so if you do see 214 the ghost, it will be in good company. But, mind, this is on one condition. You must not say anything about it about our walking back with you, I mean to anybody. Say nothing but get ready and come to school as usual. You understand Yes, Sir, said Bill and I m very much obliged to you, Sir, and the other gentleman as well. Nothing more was said, so Bill made his best bow and retired. As he went he heard Master Arthur say to the gardener Then you ll go to the town at once, John. We shall want the things as soon as possible. You d better take the pony, and we ll have the list ready for y.
other to struggle on with eight of us as she could. She buried six, one after another and then she died herself, and brother Ben and I were left alone. But we were mighty fond of define face mask medical one another, and got on very well. I got plenty of employment, weaving mats and baskets for a shop in the town, and Ben worked at the factory. One Saturday night he came home all in a state, and said there was going to be a cheap trip on the Monday into the country. It was the first there had been from these parts, though there have been many since, I believe. Neither he nor I had ever been out of the town, and he was full of it that we must go. He had brought his Saturday wage with him, and we would work hard afterwards. Well, you see, the landlord had been that day, and had said he must have the rent by Tuesday, or he d turn us out. I d got some of it laid by, and was looking to Ben s wages to make it up. But I couldn t bear to see his face pining for a bit of fresh air, and so I thought I could stay at home and work on Monday for what would make up the rent, and he need never know. 130 So I pretended that I didn t want to go, and couldn t be bothered with the fuss and at last I set him off on Monday without me. It was late at night when he came back like one wild. He d got flowers in his hat, and flowers in n99 mask home depot all his button holes he d got his handkerchief filled with hay, and was carrying something under his coat. He began laughing and crying, and Eh, Bill he said, thou disposable face mask gst rate hast been a fool. Thou hast missed summat. But I ve brought thee a bit of green, lad, I ve brought thee a bit of green. And then he lifted up his coat, and there was the plant, which some woman had given him. We didn t sleep much that night. He spread the hay over the bed, for me to lay my face on, and see how the fields smelt, and then he began and told me all about it and after that, when I was tired with work, or on a Sunday afternoon, I used to say, Now, Ben, tell us a bit about the country. And he liked nothing better. He used to say that I should go, if he carried me on his back but the Lord did not see fit. He took cold at work, and went off three months afterwards. It was singular, the morning he died he called me to him, and said, Bill, I ve been a dreaming about that trip that thou didst want to go after all. I dreamt and then he stopped, and said no more but, after a bit, he opened his eyes wide, and pulled me to him, and he said, Bill, my dust mask shortage 131 lad, there s such flowers in heaven, such flowers And so the Lord took him. But I kept the bit of green for his sake. Here followed another fit of coughing, which brought my father from the end of the bed to forbid his talking any more. I have got to see another patient in the yard, he said, and I will leave my son here. H.has been fortunate, and if not so rich a man as his father, has yet regained enough of his property to live with comfort, and, as he thinks, luxury. The long rooms are little less elegant than in former days, and Madame the present Viscountess s boudoir is a model of taste. Not far from it is another room, to which it forms a singular contrast. This room belongs to Monsieur the define face mask medical Viscount. It is small, with one window. The floor define face mask medical and walls are bare, and it contains no furniture but on the floor is a worn out pallet, by which lies a stone, and on that a broken pitcher, and in a little frame against the wall is preserved a crumpled bit of paper like the fly leaf of some little book, on which is a half effaced inscription, which can be 185 deciphered by Monsieur the Viscount if by no one else. Above the window is written in large letters, a date and the word REMEMBER. Monsieur the Viscount is not likely to forget, but he is afraid of himself and of prosperity lest it should spoil him. It is evening, and Monsieur the Viscount is strolling along the terrace with Madame on his arm. He has only one to offer her, for where the other should be an empty sleeve is pinned to his breast, on which a bit of ribbon is stirred by the breeze. Monsieur the Viscount has not been idle since we saw him last the faith that taught him to die, has taught him also how to half mask respirator with hepa filter live an honourable, useful life. It is evening, and the air comes up perfumed from a bed of violets by which Monsieur the Viscount is kneeling. Madame who has a fair face and ashen hair stands by him with her little hand on his shoulder, and her large eyes upon the violets. My friend my friend my friend It is Monsieur the Viscount s voice, and at the sound of it, there is a rustle among the violets that sends the perfume high into the air. Then from the parted leaves come forth first a dirty wrinkled leg, then a dirty wrinkled head with medical masks for sale gleaming eyes, and Monsieur Crapaud crawls with self satisfied dignity on to Monsieur the Viscount s outstretched hand. So they stay laughing and chatting, and then 186 Monsieur the Viscount bids his friend n95 rating good night, and holds him towards Madame that she may do the same. But Madame who did not enjoy Monsieur Crapaud s society in prison cannot be induced to do more than scratch his head delicately with the tip of her white finger. But she respects him greatly, at a distance, she says. Then they go back along the terrace, and are met by a man servant in Monsieur the Viscount s livery. Is it possible that this is Antoine, with his shock head covered with powder Yes that grating voice, which no mental change avails to subdue, is his, and he announces that Monsieur le Cur has arrived. It is the old Cur of the village who has survived the troubles.been comical but for the sympathy its condition demanded. A very red and utterly shapeless little face lay, like a crushed beet root, in a mass of dainty laces almost voluminous enough to have dressed out a bride. As a sort of crowning satire, the face in particular was surrounded by a broad frill, spotted with bunches of pink satin ribbon, and farther encased in a white satin hood of elaborate workmanship and fringes. A very red and utterly shapeless little face lay, like a crushed beet root, in a mass of dainty laces almost voluminous enough to have dressed out a bride The contrast between the natural red of the baby s complexion and its snowy finery was ludicrously suggestive of an over dressed nigger, to begin with but when, in the paroxysms of its cough, the tiny creature s face passed by shades of plum color to a bluish black, the result was appalling to behold. Mrs. Lake s experienced ears were not slow to discover mask for virus protection that the child had got whooping cough, which the nurse confessed was the case. She also apologized for bringing in the baby among Mrs. Lake s children, saying that she had thought of nothing but the poor little chirrub herself. Don t name it, mum, replied the windmiller s wife. I always say if children be to have things, they ll have em and if not, why they won t. A theory which seems to sum up the views of the majority of people in Mrs. Lake s class of life upon the spread of disease. I m sure I don t know what s coming to my poor head, the nurse continued I ve not so much as told you who I am, ma am. I m nurse at the Grange, ma am, with Mr. Ammaby and Lady Louisa. They ve been in town, and her ladyship s had the very best advice, and now we ve come to the country for three months, but the dear child don t seem a bit define face mask medical the better. And we ve been trying every thing, I m sure. For any thing I heard of I ve tried, as well as what the doctor ordered, and rubbing it with some stuff Lady Louisa s mamma insisted upon, too, even to a frog put into the dear child s mouth, and drawed back by its legs, that s supposed to be a certain cure, but only frightened it into a fit I thought it never would have come out of, as well as fetching her ladyship all the way from her boudoir to know what was the matter which I no more dared tell her than fly. Dear, dear said the miller s wife have you tried goose grease, mum Tis an excellent thing. Goose grease, ma am, and an excellent ointment from the bone setter s at the toll bar, which the butler paid for out of his own pocket, knowing it to define face mask medical have done a world of good to his sister that had a bad leg, besides being a certain cure for coughs, and cancer, and consumption as well. And then the doctor s imprecation on its little chest, night and morning, besides but nothing.
Define Face Mask Medical define face mask medical miserable rooms, and clambered up staircase after staircase, till we reached the top of the house, and stumbled through a latched door into the garret. After define face mask medical so much groping in the dark, the light dazzled me, and I thought at first that the room was empty. But at last a faint Good day from the corner near the window drew my eyes that way and there, stretched on a sort of bed, and supported by a chair at his back, lay the patient we had come to see. 125 He was a young man about twenty six years old, in the last stage of that terrible disease so fatally common in our country he was dying of consumption. There was no mistaking the flushed cheek, the painfully laborious breathing, and the incessant cough while two old crutches in the corner spoke of another affliction he was a cripple. His gaunt face lighted up with a glow of pleasure when my father came in, who seated himself at once on the end of the bed, and began to talk to him, whilst I looked round the room. There was absolutely nothing in it, except the bed on which the sick man lay, the chair that supported him, and a small three legged table. The low roof was terribly out of repair, and the window was patched with newspaper but through the glass panes that were left, in full glory streamed the sun, and in the midst of the blaze stood a pot of musk in full bloom. The soft yellow flowers looked so grand, and smelled so sweet, that I was lost in admiration, till I found the sick man s black eyes fixed on mine. You are looking at my bit of green, master he said, in a gratified tone. Do you like flowers I inquired, coming shyly up to the bed. Do I like em he exclaimed in a low voice. Ay, I love em well enough well enough, and he 126 looked fondly at the plant, though it s long since I saw any but these. You have not been in the country for a long time I inquired, compassionately. I felt sad to think that he had perhaps lain there for months, without a taste of fresh air or a run in the fields but I was not prepared for his answer. I never was in the country, young gentleman. I looked at my father. Yes, he said, in answer to my glance, it is quite true. William was born here. He got hurt when a boy, and has been lame ever since. For some years he has been entirely confined to the house. He was never out of town, and never saw a green field. Never out of the town confined to the house for years and what a house The tears rushed to my eyes, and I felt that angry heart ache which the sight of suffering produces in those who are too young to be insensible to it, and too ignorant of God s Providence to submit with quietness and confidence to His will. My son can hardly believe it, William. It is such a shame, I said it is horrible. I am very sorry for you. The black eyes.it, he had better amuse himself with his own toys. Is there anything else that you want, my dear I could not speak, for I was crying, but I sobbed out that I missed Maud Mary so. 254 Who is Maud Mary, Selina Maud Mary Ibbetson, my particular friend my very particular friend, I explained. I spoke warmly, for at that moment the memory of Maud Mary seemed adorable, and I longed to pour my complaints into her sympathetic ear. Besides, I had another define face mask medical reason for regretting that she was not with me. When we were together, it was she, as a rule, who had new and handsome toys to exhibit, whilst I played the humbler part of admirer. But if she had been with me, then, what would not have been my triumph in displaying the Dutch fair The longer I thought of her the faster my tears fell, but they did not help me to think of anything definite to ask for and when Lady Elizabeth said, would you like to go home, my dear or do you want me to ask your friend to stay with you I had the grace to feel ashamed of my peevishness, and to thank my godmother for her kindness, and to protest against wanting anything more. I only added, amid my subsiding sobs, that it did seem such a thing, when I had got a Dutch fair to play at dolls in, that Joseph should be so stupid, and that dear Maud Mary, who would have enjoyed it so much, should not be able to see it. CHAPTER III. Nous aurons aussi la f te dans notre rue. Russian Proverb. Next day, when our drill in the long corridor was over, Lady Elizabeth told Joseph to bring his fortress, guns, and soldiers into the library, and to play at the Thirty Years War in the bay window from a large book with pictures of sieges and battles, which she lent him. To me my godmother turned very kindly and said, I have invited your little friend Maud to come and stay here for a week. I hope she will arrive to day, so you had better prepare your dolls and your shops for company. Maud Mary coming I danced for joy, and kissed my godmother, and expressed my delight again and again. I should have liked to talk about it to Joseph, but he had plunged into the Thirty Years War, and had no attention to give me. It was a custom in the neighbourhood where my mother lived to call people by double Christian names, John Thomas, William Edward, and so forth but my godmother never called Maud Mary anything but Maud. It was possible that my darling friend might arrive by the twelve o clock train, and the carriage 256 was sent to meet her, whilst I danced up and down the big hall with impatience. When it came back without her my disappointment knew no bounds. I felt sure that the Ibbetsons coachman had been unpunctual, or dear Maud Mary s nurse had been cross, as usual, and had not tried to get her things packed. I rushed into the.
