Although a priest and a Frenchman, he had violated his priestly office to aid him in discovering the password to the fort. This password he extorted during confession from a young Breton girl who was in the habit of rowing across from the island of Groix to visit her husband in the fort. When the fort fell, this young girl, crazed by the death of her husband, sought the Count of Soisic and told how n95 mask efficiency the priest had forced her to confess to him all she knew about the fort. The priest was arrested at St. Gildas as he was about to cross the river to Lorient. When arrested he cursed the girl, Marie Trevec What I exclaimed, Marie Trevec Marie Trevec, repeated Le Bihan the priest cursed Marie Trevec, and all her family and descendants. He was shot as he knelt, having a mask of leather over his face, because the Bretons who composed the squad of execution refused to fire at a priest unless his face was concealed. The priest was l Abb Sorgue, commonly known as the Black Priest on account of his dark face and swarthy eyebrows. He was buried with a stake through his heart. Le Bihan paused, hesitated, looked at me, and handed the manuscript back to Durand. The gendarme took it and slipped it into the brass cylinder. So, said I, the thirty ninth skull is the skull of the Black Priest. Yes, said Fortin. I hope they won t find it. I have forbidden them to proceed, said the mayor querulously. You heard me, Max Fortin. I rose and picked up my gun. M ocirc me came and pushed his head into my hand. That s a fine dog, observed Durand, also rising. Why don t you wish to find his skull I asked Le Bihan. It would be curious to see whether the arrow brand really burned into the bone. There is something in that scroll that I didn t read to you, said the mayor grimly. Do you wish to know what it is Of course, I replied in surprise. Give me the scroll again, Durand, he said then he read from the bottom I, l Abb Sorgue, forced to write the above by my executioners, have written it in my own blood and with it I leave my curse. My curse on St. Gildas, on Marie Trevec, and on her descendants. I will come back to St. Gildas when my remains are disturbed. Woe to that Englishman whom my branded skull shall touch What rot I said. Do you believe it was really written in his own blood I am going to test it, said Fortin, at the request of Monsieur le Maire. I am not anxious for the job, however. See, said Le Bihan, holding out the scroll to me, it is signed, L Abb Sorgue. I glanced curiously over the paper. It must be the Black Priest, I said. He was the only man who wrote in the Breton language. This is a wonderfully interesting discovery, for now, at last, the mystery of the Black P.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 as my theories laughed the Squire. As I felt the flush on my own cheek bone, I caught the fire in his eye. n95 mask efficiency 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 who has n95 mask to breath smoke 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 3m face mask beard diy n95 mask 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 in the putting together. I think he regards it a.
feebler than ever, and Antoine became alarmed. The cell should be swept out the next morning. He would come himself, he said, and bring another man out of the town with him to help him, for the work was heavy, and he had a touch of rheumatism. The man was a stupid fellow from the country, who had only been a week in Paris he had never heard of the Viscount, and Antoine would tell him that the prisoner was a certain 169 young lawyer who had really died of fever in prison the day before. Monsieur the Viscount thanked him and it was not till the next morning arrived, and he was expecting them every moment, that Monsieur the Viscount remembered the toad, and that he would without doubt be swept away with the rest in the general clearance. At first he thought that he would beg them to leave it, but some knowledge of the petty insults which that class of men heaped upon their prisoners made him feel that this would probably be only an additional reason for their taking the animal away. There was no place to hide it in, for they would go all round the room unless unless Monsieur the Viscount took it up in his hand. And this was just what he objected to do. All his old feelings of repugnance came back he had not even got gloves on his long white hands were bare, he could not touch a toad. It was true that the beast had amused him, and that he had chatted to it n95 mask efficiency but, after all, this was a piece of childish folly an unmanly way, to say the least, of relieving the tedium of captivity. What was Monsieur Crapaud but a very ugly and most people said a venomous reptile To what a folly he had been condescending With these thoughts, n95 mask efficiency Monsieur the Viscount steeled himself against the glances of his topaz eyed friend, and when the steps of the men were heard upon the stairs, 170 he did not move from the window where he had placed himself, with his back to the stone. The steps came nearer and nearer, Monsieur the Viscount began to decorative medical face masks whistle the key was rattled in the lock, and Monsieur the Viscount heard a bit of bread fall, as the toad hastily descended to hide itself as usual in the corners. In a moment his resolution was gone another second, and it would be too late. He dashed after the creature, picked it up, and when the men came in he was standing with his hands behind him, in which Monsieur Crapaud was quietly and safely seated. The room was swept, and Antoine was preparing to go, when the other, who had been eyeing the prisoner suspiciously, stopped and said with a sharp sneer, Does the citizen always preserve that position Not he, said the gaoler, good naturedly. He spends most of his time in bed, which saves his legs. Come along, Fran ois. I shall not come, said the other, obstinately. Let the citizen show me his hands. Plague t. ?>the servants, Morton asked Eustace that evening when he brought the coffee into the library. What s all this about Mrs. Merrit wanting to leave If you please, sir, I was going to mention it myself. I have n95 mask efficiency a confession to make, sir. When I found your note asking me to open that desk and take out the box with the rat, I broke the lock as you told me, and was glad to do it, because I could hear the animal in the box making a great noise, and I thought it wanted food. So I took out the box, sir, and got a cage, and was going to transfer it, when the animal got away. What in the world are you talking about I never wrote any such note. Excuse me, sir, it was the note I picked up here on the floor on the day you and Mr. Saunders left. how to use surgical mask I have it in my pocket now. It certainly seemed to be in Eustace s handwriting. It was written in n95 mask efficiency pencil, and began somewhat abruptly. Get a hammer, Morton, he read, or some other tool, and break open the lock in the old virus respirator desk in the library. Take out the box that is inside. You need not do anything else. The lid is already open. Eustace Borlsover. And you opened the desk Yes, sir and as I was getting the cage ready the animal hopped out. What animal The animal inside the box, sir. What did it look like Well, sir, I couldn t tell you, said Morton nervously my back was turned, and it was halfway down the room when I looked up. What was its color asked Saunders black Oh, no, sir, a grayish white. It crept along in a very funny way, sir. I don t think it had a tail. What did you do then I tried to catch it, but it was no use. So I set the rat traps and kept the library shut. Then that n95 mask efficiency girl Emma Laidlaw left the door open when she was cleaning, and I think it must have escaped. And you think it was the animal that s been frightening the maids Well, no, sir, not quite. They said it was you ll excuse me, sir a hand that they saw. Emma trod on it once at the bottom of the stairs. She thought then it was a half frozen toad, only white. And then Parfit was washing up the dishes in the scullery. She wasn t thinking about anything in particular. It was close on dusk. She took her hands out of the water and was drying them absent minded like on the roller towel, when she found that she was drying someone else s hand as well, only colder than hers. What nonsense exclaimed Saunders. Exactly, sir that s what I told her but we couldn t get her to stop. You don t believe all this said Eustace, turning suddenly towards the butler. Me, sir n95 mask efficiency Oh, no, sir I ve not seen anything. Nor heard anything Well, sir, if you must know, the bells do ring at odd times, and there s nobody there when we go and when we go round to draw the blinds of a night, as often as not somebody s been there before us. But as I says to Mrs
N95 Mask Efficiency ly upon this journey, yet with the 3m face mask cartridges perfect training of dogs he had accepted it without complaint. The path had been lonely, and his heart would have failed him, traveling as he must without his people, had not these traces of countless dogs before him promised companionship of a sort at the end of the road. The landscape had appeared arid at first, for the translation from recent agony into freedom from pain had been so numbing in its swiftness that it was n95 mask efficiency some time before he could fully appreciate the pleasant dog country through which he was passing. There were woods with leaves upon the ground through which to scurry, long grassy slopes for extended runs, and lakes into which he might plunge for sticks and bring them back to But he did not complete his thought, for the boy was not with him. A little wave of homesickness possessed him. It made his mind easier to see far ahead a great gate as high as the heavens, wide enough for all. He understood that only n95 mask efficiency man built such barriers and by straining his eyes he fancied he could discern humans passing through to whatever lay beyond. He broke into a run that he might the more quickly gain this inclosure made beautiful by men and women but his thoughts outran his pace, and he remembered that he had left the family behind, and again this lovely new compound became not perfect, since it would lack the family. The scent of the dogs grew very strong now, and coming nearer, he discovered, to his astonishment that of the myriads of those who had arrived ahead of him thousands were still gathered on the outside of the portal. They sat in a wide circle spreading out on each side of the entrance, big, little, curly, handsome, mongrel, thoroughbred dogs of every age, complexion, and personality. All were apparently waiting for something, someone, and at the pad of the Airedale s feet on the hard road they arose and looked in his direction. That the interest passed as soon as they discovered the new comer to be a dog puzzled him. In his former dwelling place a four footed brother n95 mask efficiency was greeted with enthusiasm when he was a friend, with suspicious diplomacy when a stranger, and with sharp reproof when an enemy but never had he been utterly ignored. He remembered something that he had read many times on great buildings with lofty entrances. Dogs not admitted, the signs had said, and he feared this might be the reason for the waiting circle outside the gate. It might be that this noble portal stood as the dividing line between mere dogs and humans. But he had been a member of the family, romping with them in the living room, sitting at meals with them in the dining room, going upstairs at night with them, and the thought that he was to be kept out would be unendurable. He despised the.not the curse of Monsieur le Cur , n95 mask efficiency n95 dust mask asbestos whose powerful presence seemed to haunt him still. On this score he was soon set at rest, and then came the old, old 180 story. He had been but a bad man. If his life were to come over again, he would do differently. Did Monsieur the Viscount think that there was any hope Would Monsieur the Viscount have recognized himself, could he, two years ago, how long can n95 mask be worn have seen himself as he was now Kneeling by that rough, uncultivated figure, and pleading with all the eloquence that he could master to that rough uncultivated heart, the great Truths of Christianity so great n95 mask efficiency and few and simple in their application to our needs The violet eyes had never appealed more tenderly, the soft voice had never been softer than now, as he strove to explain to this ignorant soul, the cardinal doctrines of Faith and Repentance, and Charity, with an earnestness that was perhaps more effectual than his preaching. Monsieur the Viscount was quite as much astonished as flattered by the success of his instructions. The faith on which he had laid hold with such mortal struggles, seemed almost to come natural as people say to Antoine. With abundant tears he professed the deepest penitence for his past life, at the same time that he accepted the doctrine of the Atonement as a natural remedy, and never seemed to have a doubt in the Infinite Mercy that should cover his infinite guilt. 181 It was all so orthodox that even if he had doubted which he did not the sincerity of the gaoler s contrition and belief, Monsieur the Viscount could have done nothing but envy the easy nature of Antoine s convictions. He forgot the difference of their respective capabilities When the night was far advanced the men rose from their knees, and Monsieur the Viscount persuaded Antoine to lie down on his pallet, and when the gaoler s heavy breathing told that he was asleep, Monsieur the Viscount felt relieved to be alone once more alone, except for Monsieur Crapaud, whose round fiery eyes were open as usual. The simplicity with which he had been obliged to explain the truths of Divine Love to Antoine, was of signal service to Monsieur the Viscount himself. It left him no excuse for those intricacies of doubt, with which refined minds too often torture themselves and as he paced feebly up and down the cell, all the long withheld peace for which he had striven since his imprisonment seemed to flood into his soul. How blessed how undeservedly blessed was his fate Who or what was he that after such short, such mitigated sufferings, the crown of victory should be so near The way had seemed long to come, it was short to look back upon, and now the golden gates were almost reached, the everlasting doors were 182 open. A few more hours, and then and as M.
