The latter drew from his pocket a clew of small cord, and, having carefully uncoiled it, attached one end to an arrow. He then rode up to within thirty yards of the house, and dismounted not directly opposite the entrance, but a little to the one side so that the face of can disposable dust masks are versatile and may be used in most hazardous atmospheres. the wooden door, which was fortunately but three quarters open, was thus fair before him. Keeping the bridle over his arm, he now bent his bow, and sent the arrow into the woodwork of the door. There it was, sticking near the edge, and just under the latch As soon as Swartboy delivered the shaft, he had leaped back into his saddle to be ready for retreat in case the lion should spring out. He still, however, kept hold of the string, one end of which was attached to the arrow. The thud of the arrow, as it struck the door, had drawn roman face mask the attention of the lion. Of course, none of them saw him, but his angry growl told them that it was so. He did not show himself, however, and was again silent. Swartboy now drew the string taut, first felt it with a steady pull and then, satisfied of its strength, gave it a stronger jerk, and brought the door to. The latch acted beautifully, and the door remained shut even after the strain was taken off the cord. To have opened the door now the lion must have had the sagacity to lift the latch, or else must have broken through the thick, strong planks neither of which was to be feared. But the window still remained open, and through it egg white face mask for wrinkles the lion could easily leap out. Swartboy, of course, designed closing it in the same manner as he had done the door. But now arose a particular danger. He had only one piece of cord. That was attached to the arrow that still stuck fast. How was he to detach and get possession of it There appeared to be no other way but by going up to the door and cutting it from the shaft. In this lay the danger for, should the lion perceive him and rush out by the window, it would be all over with the Bushman. Like most of his race, Swartboy was amazon face mask more cunning than brave though he was far from being a coward. Still he was by no means inclined at that moment to go up to the door of the kraal. The angry growls from within would have made a stouter heart than Swartboy s quail with fear. In this dilemma Hendrik came to his relief. Hendrik had conceived a way of getting possession of the string, without going near the door Calling to Swartboy to be on his guard, he rode within thirty yards of the entrance but on the other side from where Swartboy was and there haltedre would then be no chance of avoiding an encounter. To go after Murtagh would be an equally doubtful proceeding they were ignorant of the direction the ship carpenter had taken. how to use disposable cpr mask Young as they were, a moment s reflection admonished them not to stir from the spot. But what, then Cry out, so that the absent ones might hear them No for this might also attract the attention of the ourang outang, and bring it upon them. Besides, Helen had shrieked loudly on the first alarm. If any of the hunters had been within hearing, they would have needed no further signal to tell them that some danger threatened her. If not within hearing, it would be worse than idle for either of them to cry out again. They determined, therefore, to remain silent, and keep to their position, in the hope that either their can disposable dust masks are versatile and may be used in most hazardous atmospheres. father, the Malay, or Murtagh, might come to their speedy relief. But they were prudent enough not to expose themselves to any wandering glance of the red gorilla s. The moment Henry had joined his sister he had hurried her behind the trunk of the tree, and they were now on the side facing toward the forest. There, by looking through the leaves of some orchideous creepers that wreathed the great stem, they could see the dreaded creature without being seen by it. Hand in hand, still trembling, they stood silently and cautiously regarding the gorilla and its movements. Under other and safer circumstances it would have been a curious and interesting spectacle this gigantic, human like ape, stretching forth its hairy arms, each full four feet in length gathering in the heads of the tall water plants, and munching them in great mouthfuls, then letting the stalks go and sweeping round to collect a fresh sheaf, at intervals wading a pace or two to reach some that were more tempting to its taste. For several minutes they remained looking at this rare sight, which would have absorbed the attention of the spectators could it have been witnessed in a menagerie. But they regarded it with fear and awe. Their eyes and ears were at the same time more occupied in looking and listening for some sign that might veil them of the return of their protectors. Time passed none was seen, none heard. A long time passed, and no sound from the forest no murmur of men s voices, or cry of scared bird, to proclaim zipper face mask that any one was approaching the spot. The brute was still browsing, but with less apparent voracity. He drew the shoots toward him with a gentler sweep of his arms, selecting only the most succulent. His appetite was on the wane it was evident he would soon leave off eating and return to his roosting or.
him know where we are. The ripple of oars was presently heard, and a boat came out of the gloom, rowed by two soldiers, with an officer in the stern. It came up to the forward gangway, and the person in the stern climbed on board. The boat did not wait for him, but pulled directly back to the island. I am glad to see you, Captain Westover, said Christy, as the officer came into the pilot house. 252 And I am equally glad to see you, lieutenant, can disposable dust masks are versatile and may be used in most hazardous atmospheres. replied the captain. You seem to have been successful in your undertaking Successful so far, and I think the worst of it is over now. As soon as Beeks heard the name of Captain Westover, he understood all that had been dark before. Even the Chinese lingo must have been agreed upon. The army and the navy officer had been very busy in talking over something when they came in the boat from the Bellevite, and after they landed on the island. What they had been talking about was plain enough now. Captain Westover had not much confidence in the expectations of the young naval officer when he expressed a hope that he might capture the Teaser but he had promised to render all the assistance in his power. He had agreed to be on the shore of the island if the Teaser presented herself, and thus assure the lieutenant of his position on the bay. He had done more than this, for he had brought out a couple of guns and a section of artillerists to beat off the guard boat if it interfered with the operations of the navy. Christy had taken a course from the entrance of 253 the sound, half face mask japan way between the island and Town Point, west southwest. He knew that the distance was about four miles but he could not know, except by sounding, when he came to the island, and he had bargained with the army officer to be on the lookout for him. Captain Westover had heard the noise of the Teaser, and had hailed her, thus assuring the lieutenant that his calculation had been correct, and that he was in the vicinity of Fort Pickens. I had no idea that you would accomplish anything, lieutenant, said Captain Westover. I found everything laid out just as I should have wished it to be, replied Christy. We had plenty of information that the steamer would run out the first favorable night and nothing could have been more favorable for blockade running than this fog and darkness. But nothing has been seen of this steamer from the fort. Where was she fitted out, Dave asked Christy, turning to the steward. Up by Emanuel Point, sir, about a mile above the town, replied Dave. Then leather motorcycle face mask she has not shown herself in the lower bay. 254 The conversation was interrupted by the roll of.proaching with all the speed the oarsmen could command, and they seemed to be experienced hands. There could be no doubt of the intentions of the enemy, and the midshipman drew his heavy naval revolver from his pocket. Stand by to repel boarders he called to the seamen. Pass up one of those shot, Sampson. Have a hand mount the rail, each with a shot, at the points where you have placed them. The ladies wish to know what is going on, Christy, said Paul, coming from the engine room. 131 I have no time to talk now, replied Christy impatiently, as he saw the approaching boat within ten feet of the side of the steamer. Tell them to stay where they are, and not come on deck The boat was not a large one, and it did not contain more than a dozen men but the fine form of Captain Carboneer could be seen, as he stood up in the stern sheets. Those who were not pulling the oars began to discharge revolvers at the men now mounted on the rail but the motion of the boat and the ship seemed to defeat their aim, and no one was hit so far as was known. When the boat comes alongside, let the man who is in the right place for it drop his shot into it. Be careful of it, and don t waste the iron, shouted Christy, when the decisive moment came. All ready, sir, responded the men along the rail. You are the man, Boxie You are in the right place for the first shot, added the midshipman. Boxie was next to him, and it would be Christy s turn next if the old man failed to do good work with his shot. The boat came alongside, 132 and a bowman fastened his boathook at the side of the ship, and held it in place. At the same moment Boxie let drive his sixty pound shot but he ought to have waited an instant longer, for the missile dropped harmlessly into the river. The bowman had not obtained a good hold, and he lost it, so that the boat began to drift astern. Captain Carboneer shouted his orders, and the man got a new hold, and this time it was at the painter of the boat in which Sampson had brought off Mr. Watts and the ladies. It had been forgotten in the excitement of the moment, but the rope afforded a good hold to several men who had grasped it. At this thrilling moment, a man wearing a frock coat discharged a revolver at can disposable dust masks are versatile and may be used in most hazardous atmospheres. Christy, who was standing on the rail above him, and then, seizing peanut butter face mask the painter in the hands of the men, he climbed briskly to can disposable dust masks are versatile and may be used in most hazardous atmospheres. the accommodation steps, which had been hoisted up, but not taken on board. Christy was in the most dangerous position on board, for he seemed to be the target for all who could use their revolvers. But the young commander was not asleep, though he had given.expression. The ape could still be seen through the foliage ascending to the top of the tree but Captain Redwood felt that the rifle he held in his hands, though sure of aim and fatal in effect, was of no more use than if it had been a piece of wood. Saloo had the same feeling in regard to his blow gun. The rifle might send a deadly bullet through the skull of the gorilla, and the latter pierce its body with an arrow that would carry a quick spreading poison through its veins. But to what purpose, even though they could be certain of killing it Its death would be also the death of the child. She was still living, and apparently unhurt for they could see her moving, and hear her voice, as she was carried onward and upward in that horrible embrace. Captain Redwood dared not send a bullet nor Saloo an arrow. Slight as the chances were of saving the girl, either would have made them slighter. A successful shot of the rifle or puff of the blow gun would be as fatal to the abducted as the abductor and the former, with or without the latter, would be certain to fall to the foot of the tree. It was a hundred feet sheer from the point which the ape had attained to the ground. The child would not only be killed, but crushed to a shapeless mass. Ah me what a terrible scene for her father What a spectacle for him to contemplate And as he stood in unutterable agony, his companions gathered around, all helpless and irresolute as to how they should act, they saw the ape suddenly change his direction, and move outward from the trunk of the tree along one of its largest limbs. This trended off in a nearly horizontal direction, at its end interlocking with a limb of the neighbouring tree, which stretched out as if to shake hands with it. A distance of more than fifty feet lay between the two trunks, but their branches met in close embrace. The purpose of the ape was apparent. It designed passing from one to the other, and thence into the depths of the forest. The design was quickly followed by its execution. As the spectators rushed to the side by which the gorilla was retreating, they saw it lay hold of the interlocking twigs, draw the branch nearer, bridge the space between with its long straggling arm, and then bound from one to the other with the agility of a squirrel. And this with the use of only one arm, for by the other the child was still carried in the same close hug. Its legs acted as arms, and for travelling through the tree tops three were can disposable dust masks are versatile and may be used in most hazardous atmospheres. sufficient.

Even I can now see, on the basis of your description, that you are uncovering the fossil of a land animal and I agree that it is of great importance to get it out can disposable dust masks are versatile and may be used in most hazardous atmospheres. intact, if possible. But if I can see the importance and even the nature of your work, why can t you do the same for mine The little man was leaning forward and staring intensely into Sulewayo s face by the time he finished this harangue, and Ndomi once more felt a trifle ashamed of himself. Lampert, however, saved him the need of formulating an apology. I m sure Ndomi didn t mean to ridicule your work in any way, Take, he said. We all realize perfectly that an underground phenomenon which cannot be explained at sight either by geology, paleontology or archaeology is something which requires investigation. I imagine that the best plan will be for String and me to go with you tomorrow, while the others continue their stone cutting. Hans, just how far along are you, anyway The older paleontologist thought for a moment. We don t really know, he said at last. Of course, we aren t trying to get the individual bones completely free of the matrix that will take somebody months or years. We re uncovering just enough to determine the extent of the specimen, so we can take it all out in one block or more, of course, if it s too big. So far we can only guess at how big it is. We ve uncovered with certainty two feet, and gone about half a meter along one of the attached legs. They seem to be extending straight back into the cliff, so in effect we re cutting a tunnel beside the thing. Assuming it had two main leg sections, as most of the present animals on both Earth and Viridis appear to have, we re about halfway between knee and hip joint. Of course, it might turn out to be the Viridian equivalent of a horse or chicken. In that case, we re about half way between ankle and knee. We certainly have several feet yet to penetrate before we can outline the whole block, assuming that the specimen is essentially complete. Several days, I would guess. Can you use any sort of power apparatus for any of your cuts I don t like to, on general principles, but yes, we could, with actually very little risk. If you have some sort of rock saw whose cutting part can get fine control, I d be willing to use it for parts of the tunnel away from can disposable dust masks are versatile and may be used in most hazardous atmospheres. the actual specimen.

CHAPTER VII MIDSHIPMAN CHRISTY PASSFORD In a word, Sampson, an attempt will be made to night to capture the Bellevite, and you have been getting up steam for the conspirators, said Christy, when the ship keeper had finished his narrative of the visit of the trio to the ship. Is that so exclaimed Sampson, opening his mouth and his eyes very wide at the same time. Why, I had no more doubt that the young man who was talking to me was Christy than I have that he is talking to me now. You had better look at me again, and be sure that you make no mistake, replied Christy, rather disgusted at the can disposable dust masks are versatile and may be used in most hazardous atmospheres. failure of the man to identify him. I never once thought that it was not you. When the sailboat came alongside, I knew it was the Florence, and I supposed you were in her, pleaded Sampson. can disposable dust masks are versatile and may be used in most hazardous atmospheres. But I spoke to you, as I supposed, when the boat came alongside. 82 Did you What did you say asked Christy. I said Is that you, Christy And you said Yes. Of course I did What else could I say after you had can disposable dust masks are versatile and may be used in most hazardous atmospheres. told the enemy just how to proceed. You could not have expected any other answer. I suppose I was very stupid but I hope no harm has been done, for they have not got the steamer yet, added can disposable dust masks are versatile and may be used in most hazardous atmospheres. Sampson, very much disconcerted at the blunder he had made, though an older officer than Christy might have had more charity for the ship keeper. Seen in broad daylight, there was no striking resemblance between Corny and Christy, though they were of about the same size, and had some traits in common. As Corny and his companions came in the Florence, it was not very strange that can disposable dust masks are versatile and may be used in most hazardous atmospheres. Sampson should take it for granted that Christy was one of the evening visitors. The voices of the two cousins were not unlike, and the sound was all he had to guide his judgment. Then he was not in the enemy s country, and he could hardly have been on the lookout for an enemy several miles up the river. Certainly no harm has been done, Sampson 83 but it is yet to be decided whether or not the Bellevite is to go into the navy of the United States or the navy of the Confederate States, added Christy, leaving the engine room. If we have snuffed the whole thing, I don t believe this steamer will ever wear anything but the Stars and Stripes, said Sampson stoutly and there could be no doubt in regard to his loyalty, judging from his speech, though that is not always to be trusted in time of war. Bellevite, ahoy shouted some one at the foot of the accommodation steps. Have they come again so soon asked Sampson, as he rushed to the rail. It is only a small canoe. Is Christy on board called resmed full face mask the visitor alongside. That is M.
