Different Kinds Of Masks e father was a respectable man has been begging begging in a public room. His excuse is that his mother is starving. Will you kindly take him to the Hall, and put him in charge of the gardener, with my strict orders that he is to do a good afternoon s work at weeding in the shrubbery. And that the gardener is to see that he comes every day at nine o clock in the morning, and works there till four in the afternoon, till the day you reopen school, meal times and Sundays excepted. I will pay his mother five shillings a week, and, if he is a good boy, I ll give him some old clothes. And if ever you see or hear of his disgracing himself and his friends by begging again, if you don t thrash him within an inch of his life, I shall. I promise you, the widow might starve for the want of that five shillings if the young gentleman could slip out of his bargain. His face was a study. But less so than the schoolmaster s. The job exactly suited him, and I suspect he knew the lad of old. From what I ve heard Swift say, I fancy he sympathizes with your theories, said the Rector. I fear he sympathizes with my temper as well different kinds of masks as my theories laughed the Squire. As I felt the flush on my own cheek bone, I caught the fire in his eye. But now, my dear sir, you will consent to some strong measures to prevent the village becoming a mere nest of lazzaroni Let us try the system at any rate. I propose that we do not shut up the soup kitchen yet, but charge a small sum for the soup towards its expenses. And I want to beg you to write another of those graphic and persuasive letters, in which you have appealed to the sympathy of the public with our misfortune. But, bless me said the Rector, I thought you were a foe to assisting the people, even out of their own parson s pocket. Well, I taunted the doctor myself with inconsistency, but we do not propose to make a sixpenny dole of the fund. You know there are certain things they can t do, and some help they seem fairly entitled to receive. We ve made them burn their bedding, in the interests of the public safety, and it s only fair they should be helped to replace it. Then there is a lot of sanitary work which can only be done by a fund for the purpose and, if we get the money, we can employ idlers. The women will tidy their houses when they see new blankets, and the sooner the churchyard is made nice, and that monument of yours erected, and we all get into orderly, respectable ways again, the better. Enough, enough, my dear Ammaby cried the Rector I put myself in your hands, and I will see to the public appeal at once though I may mention that the credit of those compositions chiefly belongs to old Swift. He knows the data minutely, and he delights face mask 3m 9001v in the putting together. I think he regards it a.less I had something to ask for. When I came to think of it, I found that what I wanted was that Maud Mary should let me manage my own toys and direct the game, and I resolved to ask her myself. Look here, darling, said I, when I come and play with you, I always play dolls as you like, because the dolls house is yours I wish you would play my game to day, as the Dutch fair is mine. Maud Mary flounced to her feet, and bridled with her wavy head, and said she was sure she did not want to play if I didn t like her way of playing and as to my Dutch fair, her papa could buy her one any day for her very own. I was nettled, for Maud Mary was a little apt to flourish Mr. Ibbetson s money in my face but if her father was rich, my godmother was a lady of rank, 259 and I said that my godmother, Lady Elizabeth, said it was very vulgar to flounce and toss one s head if one was put out. Maud Mary crimsoned, and, exclaiming that she did not care what Lady Elizabeth or Lady Anybody Else said, she whisked over three shops with the ends of her sash, and kicked the wax off Josephine Esmeralda s nose with the heel of her Balmoral boot. I don t like confessing it, but I did push Maud Mary, and Maud Mary slapped me. And when we both looked up, my godmother was standing before us, with her gold spectacles on her nose. Lady Elizabeth was very kind, and even then I knew that she was very right. When she said, I have asked your friend for a week, and for that week, my dear, she is your guest, and you must try to please, and make the best of it, I not only did not respirator mask n 95 dispute it I felt a spirit of self suppression and hospitable pride awake within me to do as she had said. I think the hardest part of it was that, whatever I did and whatever I gave up, Maud Mary recognized no effort on my part. What she got she took as her due, and what she did not get she grumbled about. I sometimes think that it was partly because, in 260 all that long week, she never ceased grumbling, that I did I hope for life. Only once I said, O godmamma how glad I shall be when I am alone with Joseph again And with sudden remorse, I added, But I beg your pardon, that s grumbling and you have been so kind Lady Elizabeth took off her eye glasses, and held out her hands for mine. Is it grumbling, little woman she said. Well, I m not sure. I m not sure, I said, smiling for you know I only said I should be so glad to be alone with Joseph, and to try to be good to him for he different kinds of masks is a very kind boy, and if he is a little awkward with the dolls, I mean to make the best of it. One can t have everything, I added, laughing. Lady Elizabeth drew my head towards her, and stroked and kissed it. God bless you, child, she said. You have inherited your father s smile. But, I say, Selina, whispe.
at even Jan s growing influence would not have secured her dismissal, had not the artist had a particular reason for wishing the boy s practical talents to be displayed. He suspected his business friend of distrusting them because of Jan s artistic genius, and he was proud to boast that he had never known the comfort of clean rooms and well cooked food till the boy Giotto became his housekeeper. The work was play to Jan after his slavery to the hunchback, and on his happiness in living different kinds of masks with a painter it is needless to dwell. For a week or two, the artist was busy with his pot boiler, and did not pay much attention to his new apprentice, and Jan watched without disturbing respirator suppliers him so that when he offered to set the painter s palette, his master regarded his success as an inspiration of genius, rather than as a result of habits of observation. The painter, though clever and ambitious, and with a very ppe mask pure and very elegant taste, was no mighty genius himself. The average of public taste in art is low enough, but in refusing his high art pictures, and buying his domestic ones, the public was not far wrong. It must be confessed that he had also a vein of indolence in his nature, and Jan soon painted most of the pot boilers. Another of his duties was to sit different kinds of masks as a model for the picture. The painter sketched him again and again, and was never quite satisfied. What the vision of the windmill had lit up in the depth of his black eyes could not be recalled to order in the painter s studio. I tell you what it is, said the artist one day domestic servitude is taking the poetry out of you. You re getting fat, Giotto Understand that from henceforth I forbid you to black boots or grates, to brush, dust, wash, cook, or whatever disturbs the peace or hinders the growth of the soul. I must get the widow back and the painter heaved a deep sigh. But Jan was resolute against the widow. He effected a compromise. The bandy legged boy from the Home was taken into the painter s service, and Jan made himself responsible for his good conduct. He different kinds of masks began by warning his vivacious friend that no freemasonry of common street boyhood could hinder the duty he owed to his master of protecting his property and insuring his comfort, and that he must sooner tell tales of his friend than have the painter wronged. different kinds of masks To n95 respirator mask small this homily the bandy legged boy listened with his red cheeks artificially distended, and occasional murmurs of Crikey but he took service on these terms, and did Jan no discredit. He was incorruptibly honest, and when from time to time the street fever seized him, and he left his work to play at post leaping outside, Jan would quietly take his place, and did not betray him. This kindness invariably drew tears of penitence from the soft hearted youn.For not the faintest motion could be seen Of all the shades that slanted o er the green. The old man paused for an instant, and, turning round, saw Jan, and put his heavy foot into the sky of Jan s picture. He drew it back at Jan s involuntary cry, and, after a long look at the quaint figure before him, said, Are ye one of the fairies, little man But Jan knew nothing of fairies. I be Jan Lake, different kinds of masks from the mill, said he. Are ye so But that s not a miller s coat ye ve on, said the old man, with a twinkle in his eye. Jan looked seriously at it, and then explained. I be Master Salter s pig minder just now, but I ve got a miller s thumb, I have. That s well, Master Pig minder and now would ye tell an old man what ye screamed out for. Did I scare ye Oh, no, sir, said Jan, civilly and he added, I liked that you were saying. Are ye a bit of a poet as well as a pig minder, then and waving his hand with a theatrical gesture up the wood, the old man began to spout afresh A filbert hedge with wild briar overtwined, And clumps of woodbine taking the soft wind Upon their summer thrones there too should be The frequent chequer of a youngling tree, That with a score of light green brethren shoots From the quaint mossiness of aged roots Round which is heard a spring head of clear waters Babbling so wildly of its lovely daughters, The spreading bluebells it may haply mourn That such fair clusters should be rudely torn From their fresh beds, and scattered thoughtlessly By infant hands, left on the path to die. Between the strange dialect and the unfamiliar terseness of poetry, Jan did not follow this very clearly, but he caught the allusion to bluebells, and the old man brought his hand back different kinds of masks to his side with a gesture so expressive towards the bluebell fragments at his feet, that it hardly needed the tone of reproach he gave to the last few words left on the path to die to make Jan hang his head. Twas the only blue I could find, he said, looking ruefully at the fading flowers. And what for did ye want blue, then, best face mask for virus protection my lad To make the sky with, said Jan. The powers of the air be good to us said the stranger, setting his broad hat back from his face, as if to obtain a clearer view of the little pig minder. Are ye a sky maker as well as a swineherd And while I m catechising ye, may I ask for what do ye bring a slate out pig minding and sky making I draws out the trees on it first, said Jan, and then I does them in leaves. If you ll come round, he added, shyly, you ll see it. But don t tread on un, please, sir. The old man fumbled in his pocket, from which he drew a shagreen spectacle case, as substantial looking as himself, and, planting the spectacles firmly on his heavy nose, he held out his hand to Jan. There, said he, take me where ye wi.ssamine was becoming anxious, when Jackanapes presented himself with a ghastly face all besmirched with tears. He was unusually subdued. 21 I m afraid, he sobbed if you please, I m very much afraid that Tony Johnson s dying in the churchyard. Miss Jessamine was just beginning to be distracted, when she smelt Jackanapes. You naughty, naughty boys Do you mean to tell me that you ve been smoking Not pipes, urged Jackanapes upon my honor, Aunty, not pipes. Only segars like Mr. Johnson s and only made of brown paper with a very, very little tobacco from the shop inside them. Whereupon, Miss Jessamine sent a servant to the churchyard, who found Tony Johnson lying on a tomb stone, very sick, and having ceased to entertain any hopes of his own recovery. If it could be possible that any unpleasantness could arise between two such amiable neighbors as Miss Jessamine and Mrs. Johnson and if the still more incredible paradox can be that ladies may differ over a point on which they are agreed that point was the admitted fact that Tony Johnson was delicate, and the difference lay chiefly in this 22 Mrs. Johnson said that Tony was delicate meaning that he was more finely strung, more sensitive, a properer subject for pampering and petting than Jackanapes, and that, consequently, Jackanapes was to blame for leading Tony into scrapes which resulted in his being chilled, frightened, how to use face mask disposable or most frequently sick. But when Miss Jessamine said that Tony Johnson was delicate, she meant that he was more puling, less manly, and less healthily brought up than Jackanapes, who, when they got into mischief together, was different kinds of masks certainly not to blame because his friend could not get wet, sit a kicking donkey, ride in the giddy go round, bear the noise of a cracker, or 3m face masks made in china smoke brown paper with impunity, as he could. Not that there was ever the slightest quarrel between the ladies. It never even came near it, except the day after Tony had been so very 23 sick with riding Bucephalus in the giddy go round. Mrs. Johnson had explained to Miss Jessamine that the reason Tony was so easily upset, was the unusual sensitiveness as a doctor had explained it to her of the nervous centres in her family Fiddlestick So Mrs. Johnson understood Miss Jessamine to say, but it appeared that she only said Treaclestick which is quite another thing, and of which Tony was undoubtedly fond. Jackanapes could hardly sleep for Speculating It was at the fair that Tony was made ill by 24 riding on Bucephalus. Once a year the Goose Green became the scene of a carnival. First of all, carts and caravans were rumbling up all along, day and night. Jackanapes could hear them as he lay in bed, and could hardly sleep for speculating what booths and whirligigs he should find fairly established, w.
Different Kinds Of Masks e her to different kinds of masks herself. This the miller had to do, anyhow. For he could only spare a moment s attention to her now and then, since the mill required all his care. In a coat and hat of painted canvas, he had been in and out ever since the storm began now directing the two men who were working within, now struggling along the stage that ran outside the windmill, at no small risk of being fairly blown away. He had reefed the sails twice already in the teeth of the blinding rain. But he did well to be careful. For it was in such a storm as this, five years ago come Michaelmas, that the worst of windmill calamities had befallen him, the sails had been torn off his mill and dashed into a hundred fragments upon the ground. And such a mishap to a seventy feet tower mill means as windmillers well know not only a stoppage of trade, but an expense of two hundred pounds for the new sails. Many a sack of grist, which should have come to him had gone down to the watermill in the valley before the new sails were at work and the huge debt incurred to pay for them was not fairly wiped out yet. That catastrophe had kept the windmiller a poor man for five years, and it gave him a nervous dread of storms. And talking of storms, here was another unreasonable thing. The morning sky had been like the miller s wedded life without a cloud. The day had been sultry, for the time of year unseasonably so. And, just when the miller most grudged an idle day, when times were hard, when he was in debt, for some small matters, as well as the sail business, and when, for the first time in his life, he felt almost afraid of his own hearthstone, and would fain have been busy at his trade, not a breath of wind had there been to turn the sails of the mill. Not a waft to cool his perplexed forehead, not breeze enough to stir the short grass that glared for miles over country flat enough to mock him with the fullest possible view of the cloudless sky. Then towards evening, a few gray flecks had stolen up from the horizon like thieves in how many times can i use n95 mask the dusk, and a mighty host of clouds had followed them and when the wind did come, it came in no moderate measure, but brought this awful storm upon its wings, which now raged as if all the powers of mischief had got loose, and were bent on turning every thing topsy turvy indoors and out. What made the winds and clouds so perverse, the clerk of the weather best knows does n95 mask filter carbon monoxide but there was a reason for the unreasonableness of the windmiller s wife. She had lost her child, her youngest born, and therefore, at present, her best beloved. This girl babe was the sixth of the windmiller and his wife s children, the last that God gave them, and the first that it had pleased Him to take away. The mother had been weak herself at the time that th.ith making him repeat the baby s very genteel and as she justly said uncommon name. When Abel came back from school, he resumed his charge, and Mrs. Lake went about other work. She was busy, and the nurse boy put different kinds of masks Jan to bed himself. The sandy kitten waited till Jan was fairly established, so as to receive her comfortably, and then she dropped from the roof of the press bed, and he cuddled her into his arms, where she purred like a kettle just beginning to sing. Outside, the wind was rising, and, passing more or less through the outer door, it roared in the round house but they were well sheltered in the dwelling room, and could listen complacently to the gusts that whirled the sails, and made the heavy stones fly round till they shook the roof. Just above the press bed a candle was stuck in the wall, and the dim light falling through the gloom upon the children made a scene different kinds of masks worthy of the pencil of Rembrandt, that great son of a windmiller. When Mrs. Lake found time to come to the corner where the old press bed stood, the kitten was asleep, and Jan very nearly so and by them sat Abel, watching every breath that his foster brother drew. And, as he watched, his trustworthy eyes and most sweet smile lighting up a face to which his forefathers had bequeathed little beauty or intellect, he might have been the guardian angel of the nameless Jan, scarcely veiled under the likeness of a child. His mother smiled tenderly back upon different kinds of masks him. He was very dear to her, and not the less so for his tenderness to Jan. Then she stooped to kiss her foster child, who opened his black eyes very wide, and caught the sleeping kitten round the head, in the fear that it might be taken from him. Tell Abel the name of pretty young lady you see to day, love, said Mrs. Lake. But Jan was well aware of his power over the miller s wife, and was apt to indulge in caprice. So he only shook his head, and cuddled the kitten more tightly than before. Tell un, Janny dear. Tell un, there s a lovey said Mrs. Lake. Who did daddy put in the hopper But still Jan gazed at nothing in particular with a sly twinkle in his black eyes, and continued to squeeze poor Sandy to a degree that can have been little less agonizing than the millstone torture and obdurate he would probably have remained, but that Abel, bending over him, said, Do ee tell poor Abel, Jan. The child fixed his bright eyes steadily on Abel s well loved face for a few seconds, and then said quite clearly, in soft, evenly accented syllables, Amabel. And the sandy kitten, having escaped with its life, crept back into Jan s bosom and purred itself to rest. CHAPTER X. ABEL AT HOME. JAN OBJECTS TO THE MILLER S MAN. THE ALPHABET. THE CHEAP JACK.
