Regular Mask me paint it in your place, I ll do it for ee for nothin. The innkeeper was not insensible to this consideration, but his chief wish was to spite Master Linseed. He lost no time in making ready, and for the rest of the week Jan lived between the tallet or hay loft of the inn and the wood where he had first studied trees. Master Chuter provided him with sheets of thick sleep wearijg face mask 3m whitey brown paper, on which he made water color studies, from which he painted afterwards. By his desire no one was admitted to the tallet, though Master Chuter s delight increased with the progress of the picture till the secret was agony to him. Towards the end of the week they were disturbed by a scuffling on the tallet stairs, and Rufus bounced in, followed at a slower pace by the schoolmaster, crying, Unearthed at last Come in, come in That s right shouted Master Chuter. Let Master Swift look, Jan. He be a scholar, and ll tell us all about un. But Jan shrank into the shadow. The schoolmaster stood in the light of the open shutter, towards which the painting was sloped, and Rufus sat by him on his haunches, and blinked with all the gravity of a critic and in the half light between them and the stairs stood the fat little innkeeper, with his hands on his knees, crying, There, Master Swift Did ee ever see any thing to beat that Artis or ammytoor Jan s very blood seemed to stand still. As Master Swift put on his spectacles, each fault in the painting sprang to the front and mocked him. It was indeed a wretched daub But Jan had been studying the scene under every lovely light of heaven from dawn to dusk for a week of summer days Master Swift carried no such severe test in his brain. As he raised his head, the tears were in his eyes, and he held out his hand, saying, My lad, it s just the spirit of the woods. But d ye not think a figure or so would enliven it he continued. One of Robin Hood s foresters chasing the flying roe Foresters To be sure said Master Chuter. What did I say Have the schoolmaster in, says I. He be a scholar, and knows what s what. Put em in, Jan, put em in there s plenty of room. What Jan had already suffered from the innkeeper s suggestions, only an artist can imagine, and his imagination will need no help I d be main glad to get a bit of red in there, said Jan, in a low voice, to Master Swift but Robin Hood must be in green, sir, mustn t he There s Will Scarlet. Put Will in, said Master Swift, who, pleased to be appealed to, threw himself warmly into the matter. He can have just drawn his bow at a deer out of sight. And with a charming simplicity the old schoolmaster flung his burly figure into an appropriate attitude. Stand so a minute cried Jan, and seizing a lump of charcoal, with which he had made his outlines, he rapidly s.d looked round his new abode. It was a small stone cell it was underground, with a little grated window at the top that seemed to be level with the court there was a pallet painfully pressed and worn a chair, disposable surgical face masks with designs a stone on which stood a plate and broken pitcher, and in one corner a huge bundle of firewood which mocked a place where there regular mask was no fire. Stones lay scattered about, the walls were black, and in the far dark corners the wet oozed out and trickled slowly down, and lizards and other reptiles crawled up. I suppose that the first object that attracts the 152 hopes of a new prisoner is the window of his cell, and to this, despite his weakness, Monsieur the Viscount crept. It afforded him little satisfaction. It was too high in the cell for him to reach it, too low in the prison to command any view, and was securely grated with iron. p3 vs p100 filter Then he examined the walls, but not a stone was loose. As he did so, his eye fell upon the floor, and he noticed that two of the stones that lay about had been raised up by some one and a third laid upon the top. It looked like child s play, and Monsieur the Viscount kicked it down, and then he saw that underneath it there was a pellet of paper roughly rolled together. Evidently it was something left by the former occupant of the cell for his successor. Perhaps he had begun some plan for getting away which he had not had time to perfect on his own account, Perhaps but by this time the paper was spread out, and Monsieur the Viscount read the writing. The paper was old and yellow. It was the fly leaf torn out of a little book, and on it was written in black chalk, the words Souvenez vous du Sauveur. Remember the Saviour. He turned it over, he turned it back again there was no other mark there was nothing more and Monsieur the Viscount did not conceal from himself 153 that he was disappointed. How could it be otherwise He had been bred in ease and luxury, and surrounded with everything that could make life beautiful while ugliness, and want, and sickness, and all that make life miserable, had been kept, as far as they can be kept, from regular mask the precincts of the beautiful chateau which was his home. What were the consolations medical mask cvs of religion to him They are offered to those and to those only who need them. They were to Monsieur the Viscount what the Crucified Christ was to the Greeks of old foolishness. He put the paper in his pocket and lay down again, feeling it the crowning disappointment of what he had lately suffered. Presently, Antoine came with some food it was not dainty, but Monsieur the Viscount devoured it like a famished hound, and then made inquiries as to how he came and how long he had been there. When the gaoler began to describe him, whom he called the Cur , Monsieur the Viscount.
st the painter was still gazing across the water meadows, Master Swift, who was the soul of hospitality, had told Jan where to find a few shillings in a certain drawer, and had commissioned him to lay these out in the wherewithal for an evening meal. Jan had had some anxiety in connection with the duty intrusted to him. Firstly, he well knew that the few shillings were what the schoolmaster must depend on for that week s living. Secondly, though it was his old friend s all, it was a sum very inadequate to provide such a meal as Jan would have liked to set before the painter. At his age, children are very sensitive on behalf of their grown up friends, and like to maintain the credit of home. The provoking point was that Jan had plenty of pocket money, with which he could have supplied deficiencies, had he dared for the painter, besides buying him an outfit for the journey, had liberally rewarded him for his work at the pot boiler. But Jan regular mask knew the pride of Master Swift s heart too well to venture to add a half penny to his money, or to spend a half penny less than all. It was whilst he was going with an anxious countenance towards the village shop that Master Chuter met him with open arms. The little innkeeper was genuinely delighted to see him and the news of his arrival having spread, several old friends including Willum Smith were waiting for him, about the yardway of the Heart of Oak. When the innkeeper discovered Jan s errand, he insisted on packing up a prime cut of bacon, some new laid eggs, and a bottle of crusty old port, such as the regular mask squires drank at election dinners, to take to the schoolmaster. Jan was far too glad of this seasonable addition to the feast to suggest doubts of its acceptance indeed, he ventured on a hint about a possible lack of wine glasses, which Master Chuter quickly took, and soon filled up his basket with ancient glasses on bloated legs, a clean table cloth, and so forth. We needn t say any thing about the glasses, suggested Jan, as they drew near the cottage. Master Chuter winked the little eye buried in his fat left cheek. I knows the schoolmaster, Jan. He be mortal proud and I wouldn t offend he, sartinly not, Jan. But Master Swift and me have seen a deal of each other since you left, and he ve tasted this port before, when he were so bad, and he ll not take it amiss from an old friend. Master Chuter was right. The schoolmaster only thanked him heartily, and pressed him to remain. But the little innkeeper, bustling round the table with professional solicitude, declined the invitation. I be obliged to ee all the same, Master Swift. But I hope I knows better manners than to intrude on you 3m mask respirator n95 and Jan just now, let alone a gentleman on whom I shall have pleasure in waiting at the Heart of.s chair with a face as black as a thunder cloud. The reason of my ill temper was this Ever since I could remember, my father had been accustomed, once a year, to take us all into the country for change of air. Once he had taken us to the sea, regular mask but generally we went to an ffp2 n95 masks old farmhouse in the middle of the beautiful moors which lay not many miles from our dirty black town. But this year, on this very sunshiny morning, he had announced at breakfast that he could not let us go to what we called our moor home. He had even added insult to injury by expressing his thankfulness that we were all in good health, so that the change was not a matter of necessity. I was too indignant to speak, and rushed upstairs into the nursery, where my little sister had also taken refuge. She was always very gentle and regular mask obedient provokingly so, I thought , and now she sat rocking her doll on her knee in silent sorrow, whilst I stood kicking her chair and grumbling in a tone which it was well the doll could not hear, or rocking would have been of little use. I took pleasure in trying to make her as angry as myself. I reminded her how lovely the purple moors 121 were looking at that moment, how sweet heather smelt, and how good bilberries tasted. I said I thought it was very hard. It wasn t as if we were always paying visits, as many children did, to their country relations we had only one treat in the year, and father wanted to take that away. Not a soul in the town, I said, would be as unfortunate as we were. The children next door would go somewhere, of course. So would the little Smiths, and the Browns, and everybody. Everybody else went to the sea in the autumn we were contented with the moors, and he wouldn t even let us go there. And, at the end of every burst of complaint, I discharged a volley of kicks at the leg of the chair, and wound up with I can t think why he can t I don t know, said my sister, timidly, but he said something about not affording it, and spending money, and about trade being bad, and he was afraid there would be great distress in the town. Oh, these illogical women I was furious. What on earth has that to do with us I shouted at her. Father s a doctor trade won t hurt him. But you are so silly, Minnie, I can t talk to you. I only know it s very hard. Fancy staying a whole year boxed up in this beastly town And I had so worked myself up that I fully believed 122 in the truth regular mask of the sentence with which I concluded There never was anything so miserable Minnie said nothing, for my feelings just then were something like those of the dogs who Dr. Watts tells us delight To bark and bite and perhaps she was afraid of being bitten. At any rate, she held her tongue and just then my father came into the room. The door was op.xasperated, and deliberately pushed the skull till it rolled into the bottom of the gravel pit below. Cover it up, said I bury the scroll with it too, if you insist, but I think you ought to send it to Paris. Don t look so gloomy, Fortin, unless you believe in werewolves and ghosts. Hey what the what the devil s the matter with you, anyway What are you staring at, Le Bihan Come, come, muttered the mayor in a low, tremulous voice, it s time we got out of this. Did you see Did you see, Fortin I saw, whispered Max Fortin, pallid with fright. The two men were almost running across the sunny pasture now, and I hastened after them, demanding to know what was the matter. Matter chattered the mayor, gasping with exasperation and terror. The skull is rolling up hill again, and he burst into a terrified gallop, Max Fortin followed close behind. I watched them stampeding across the pasture, then turned toward the gravel pit, mystified, incredulous. The skull was lying on the edge of the pit, exactly where it had been before I pushed it over the edge. For a second I stared at it a singular chilly feeling crept up my spinal column, and I turned and walked away, sweat starting from the root of every hair on does n95 help with smoke my head. Before I had gone twenty paces the absurdity of the whole thing struck masks and n95 respirators me. I halted, hot with shame and annoyance, and retraced my steps. There lay the skull. I rolled a stone down instead of the skull, I muttered to myself. Then with the butt of my gun I pushed the skull over the edge of the pit and watched it roll to the bottom and as it struck the bottom of the pit, M ocirc me, my dog, suddenly whipped his tail between his legs, whimpered, and made off across the moor. M ocirc me I shouted, angry and astonished but the dog only fled the faster, and I ceased calling from sheer surprise. What the mischief is the matter with that dog I thought. He had never before played me such a trick. Mechanically I glanced into the pit, but I could not see the skull. I looked down. The skull lay at my feet again, touching them. Good heavens I stammered, and struck at it blindly with my gunstock. The ghastly thing flew into the air, whirling over and over, and rolled again down the sides of the pit to the bottom. Breathlessly I stared at it, then, confused and scarcely comprehending, I stepped back from the pit, still facing it, one, ten, twenty paces, my eyes almost starting from my head, as though I expected to see the thing roll up from the bottom of the pit under my very gaze. At last I turned my back to the pit and strode out across the gorse covered moorland toward my home. As I reached the road that winds from St. Gildas to St. Julien I gave one hasty glance at the pit over my shoulder. The sun shone hot on the sod about th.

Mortal man does not learn any virtue in one lesson and I have only too often in my life been ungrateful both to God and man. But the memory of lame William has often come across me when I have been tempted to grumble about small troubles and has given me a little help not to be despised in striving after the grace of Thankfulness, even for a bit of green. MONSIEUR THE VISCOUNT S FRIEND. A TALE IN THREE CHAPTERS. Sweet are the vses of aduersitie Which like the toad, ougly and venemous, Weares yet a precious lewell in his head. As You Like It a.d. 1623. CHAPTER I. It was the year of grace 1779. In one of the most beautiful corners of beautiful France stood a grand old chateau. It was a fine old building, with countless windows large and small, with high pitched roofs and pointed towers, which in good taste or bad, did its best to be everywhere ornamental, from the gorgon heads which frowned from its turrets to the long row of stables and the fantastic dovecotes. It stood as became such a castle upon an eminence, and looked down. Very beautiful indeed was what it looked upon. Terrace below terrace glowed with the most brilliant flowers, and broad flights of steps led 135 from one garden to the other. On the last terrace of all, fountains and jets of water poured into one large basin, in which were gold and silver fish. Beyond this were regular mask shady walks, which led to a lake on which floated water lilies and swans. From the top of the topmost flight of steps you could see regular mask the blazing gardens one below the other, the fountains and the basin, the walks and the lake, and beyond these the trees, and the smiling country, and the blue sky of France. Within the castle, as without, beauty reigned supreme. The sunlight, subdued by blinds and curtains, stole into rooms furnished with every grace and luxury that could be procured in a country that then accounted itself the most highly civilized in the world. It fell upon beautiful flowers and beautiful china, upon beautiful tapestry and pictures and it fell upon Madame the Viscountess, sitting at her embroidery. Madame the Viscountess was not young, but she was not the least beautiful object in those stately rooms. She had married into a race of nobles who themselves famed for personal beauty had been scrupulous in the choice of lovely wives. The late Viscount for Madame was a widow had been one of the handsomest of the gay courtiers of his day and Madame had not been unworthy of him. Even now, though the roses on her cheeks were more entirely artificial than they had been in the days of her 136 youth, she was like some exquisite piece of porcelain. Standing by the embroidery frame was Madame s only child, a boy who, i.santly upon cities and the haunts of men. I would have given my soul, as the saying is, for the feel of those Bavarian villages we had passed through by the score for the normal, human commonplaces, peasants drinking beer, tables beneath the trees, hot sunshine, and a ruined castle on the rocks behind the red roofed church. regular mask Even the tourists would have been welcome. Yet what I felt of dread was no ordinary ghostly fear. It was infinitely greater, stranger, and seemed to arise from some dim ancestral sense of terror regular mask more profoundly disturbing than anything I had known or dreamed of. We had strayed, as the Swede put it, into some region or some set of conditions where the risks were great, yet unintelligible to us where the frontiers of some unknown world lay close about us. It was a spot held by the dwellers in some outer space, a sort of peephole whence they could spy upon the earth, themselves unseen, a point where the veil between had worn a little thin. As the final result of too long a sojourn here, we should be carried over the border and deprived of what we called our lives, yet by mental, not physical, processes. In that regular mask sense, as he said, we should be the victims of our adventure a sacrifice. It took us in different fashion, each according to the measure of his sensitiveness and powers of resistance. I translated it vaguely into a personification of the mightily disturbed elements, investing them with the horror of a deliberate and malefic purpose, resentful of our audacious intrusion into their breeding place whereas my friend threw it into the unoriginal form at first of a trespass on some ancient shrine, some place where the old gods still held sway, where the emotional forces of former worshipers still clung, and the ancestral portion of him yielded to the old pagan spell. At any rate, here was a place unpolluted by men, kept clean 3m phone number by the winds from coarsening human influences, a place where spiritual agencies were within reach and aggressive. Never, before or since, have I been so attacked by indescribable suggestions of a beyond region, of another scheme of life, another evolution not parallel to the human. And in the end our minds would succumb under the weight of the awful spell, and we should be drawn across the frontier into their world. Small things testified to this amazing influence of the place, and now in the silence round the fire they allowed themselves to be noted by the mind. The very atmosphere had proved itself a magnifying medium to distort every indication the otter rolling regular mask in the current, the hurrying boatman making signs, the shifting willows, one and all had been robbed of its natural character, and revealed in something of its other aspect as it existed across the border in that o.
