CHAPTER XXVI THE ACTION ON THE DECK OF THE TEASER As the Teaser was but a short distance from the shore, Christy had no doubt that the attempt to board her had been made by this time. Mr. Blowitt had quite as many men on board of the steamer as could have been contained in the two garnier face mask boats, and he was not much concerned about the result of the attack, especially as he knew that the second lieutenant was fully prepared and on the lookout for it. The only thing that Christy regretted was that he was not on board of the Teaser to take part in the affair of repelling boarders. There seems to be some music in the air, said Lonley, after he had listened for a few moments to the sounds that came from the direction of the steamer. To return to the subject of the morality of telling stories, your men do not seem to be a mile 290 to the eastward, where their bags were left, added Christy good naturedly. You had a acne facial mask glance at them in the boats, though the darkness and fog were rather too thick for you to count them, replied Lonley, chuckling over the deception he had practised upon the lieutenant of the Bellevite. Yes, I saw them, and I concluded that they could not be where their bags were. All is fair in war. That seems to be the generally received maxim, and he is the smartest man who the most thoroughly deceives the enemy, added Christy, who found himself tolerably well satisfied with the situation, though he was a prisoner. That is so, and of course I can find no fault with you for deceiving me, returned Lonley, chuckling as though he was even better satisfied with the situation than his companion. Thank you, Mr. Lonley you are magnanimous, and with equal sincerity I can say that I have no fault to find with you, replied the union officer. But I have my doubts whether, after this, either of us will be likely to believe what the other says. disposable masks for chemicals But, for my part, I wish to say that 291 I don t believe in telling anything but necessary and patriotic lies. That is my view of the matter exactly and if there is any man that despises a liar, I am that man, said Lonley warmly. But it seems to me they are making a good deal of a racket off there, he added, as the noise of pistol shots and the clash of cutlasses came over the smooth waters of the gulf. They seem to be at it quite earnestly, replied Christy. By the way, how many men did you leave on board of the Teaser asked the privateersman, whose manner seemed to have suddenly become considerably changed. How many men repeated the lieutenant of the Bellevite. That is the question I ask.
hese creatures sometimes give utterance, and which is represented by the word gnoo o oo. They roam in vast flocks upon the wild karoos of South Africa are inoffensive animals, except when wounded and then the old bulls are exceedingly dangerous, and will attack the hunter both with horns and hoot. They can run with great swiftness, though they scarce ever go clear off, but, keeping at a wary distance, circle around the hunter, curvetting in all directions, menacing with their heads lowered to the ground, kicking up the dust with their heels, and bellowing like bulls, or indeed like lions for their rout bears a resemblance to the lion s roar. The old bulls stand sentry while the herd is feeding, and protect it both in front and rear. When running off they usually go in single file, as Jan had represented. Old bulls hang between the rear of the herd and the hunter and these caper back and forward, butting each other with their horns, and often fighting apparently in serious earnest Before the hunter comes within range, however, they drop their conflict and gallop out of his way. Nothing can exceed the capricious antics which these animals indulge in, joker face mask while garnier face mask trooping over the plain. There is a second species of the same genus common in South Africa, and a third inhabits still farther good korean face masks to the north but of the last very little is known. Both species are larger than the wildebeest, individuals of garnier face mask either being nearly five feet in height, while the common gnoo is scarce four. The three kinds are quite distinct, and never herd together, though each of them is often found in company with other animals. All three are peculiar to the continent of Africa, and are not found elsewhere. The brindled gnoo Catoblepas gorgon is the other species that inhabits the South of Africa. It is known among the hunters and colonists as blauw wildebeest blue wild ox. It is of a bluish colour hence the name, and brindled, or striped along the sides. Its habits are very similar to those of the cbd face mask common gnoo, but it is altogether a heavier and duller animal, and still more eccentric and ungainly in its form. The third species Catoblepas taurina is the ko koon of the natives. It approaches nearer to the brindled gnoo in garnier face mask form and habits but as it is not found except in the more central and less travelled portions of Africa, less is known about it than either of the others. It is, however, of the same kind and the three species, differing widely from any other animals known, are entitled to form a distinct and separate genus. They have hitherto generally been classed with the antelopes, though for what reaso.s severe 3m half face mask 6000 series upon him as the loss of his vessel had been upon Captain Folkner. Who are you demanded Lonley, when he had 297 in some measure recovered from the shock which the failure gave him. I am Levick, the boatswain and this is Lieutenant Folkner, who was wounded in the shoulder in the first of it, replied the man. He was knocked from the rail into the water when we boarded, and he held on to an oar. When the fight was over, and we had lost it, I slipped into the water, and helped the lieutenant along on his oar, till I was about used up, and then I called for help. Are you much hurt, Mr. Folkner asked Lonley of the injured officer. I don t know my shoulder feels numb, and I can garnier face mask t use my arm, replied Folkner. But I can use my legs, and I think that is what we had better be doing. I don t understand it, protested Lonley, very much dissatisfied with the result of the action, as may well be supposed. I was sure you would carry her deck at once. I was as sure as you were, Lonley but I believe they had fifty men all ready for us. They let us leap on deck without much opposition, and then they surrounded us, and took us by surprise, why do japanese wear face masks 298 for I did not suppose, after what you said, that they had a dozen men, replied the wounded lieutenant. I did not suppose they had even a dozen men left on board, Lonley explained, with humiliation in his tones. I staid in the boat till I had seen all my men on deck, continued Mr. Folkner. They surrounded our force, and tumbled them into the hold as though they had been pigs, slashing them with their cutlasses if they tried to get out. I saw the fat officer in command of the enemy he was very active, and I leaped on deck, determined to cross weapons with him. But he hit me in the shoulder with his cutlass, and I lost my hold on the rail. You ought to have led your men, not followed them, said Lonley bitterly. That is easy enough for you to say but I wanted to be where I could see my men, retorted the first lieutenant, of whom the second had a very mean opinion, perhaps because he got his position on account of being the captain s brother. Whether I did right or not, I can tell you all one thing and that is, that we shall be prisoners if 299 we stay here any longer. They have got our men under the hatches, and they have ordered out a boat to look for an officer they sent ashore. We can do nothing here, and we may as well put ourselves in safer quarters, for we have two prisoners to lose, said Lonley. Mr. Passford, I shall have to trouble you to march to the garnier face mask other side of the island. I am your prisoner, Mr. Lonley, and I must obey your orders, th.influence of the water. One of the voices bore a singular resemblance to that of a child. It could not anti social social club face mask be Helen s it more resembled the squalling of an infant. Saloo knew what it was. In the plaintive tones he recognised the scream of a young ourang outang. It was a proof his conjecture was true, and that the mias had reached its home. All the more anxious was Captain Redwood to reach the spot whence the sounds proceeded. Something like a presentiment had entered his mind that there was still a hope, and that his child lived and might be rescued. Even if torn, injured, disfigured for life, she might survive. Any sort of life, so long as she could be recovered and if she could not be restored, at least she might breathe her spf face lotion last breath in his arms. Even that would be easier to bear than the thought that she had gone to rest in the grasp of the hirsute gorilla, with its hideous offspring grinning and gibbering around her. The lagoon could not be waded on foot but a good swimmer might cross it. The captain was an experienced and accomplished swimmer. The voices came from no great distance certainly not above half a mile. On one occasion he had accomplished a league in a rough sea There could be no difficulty in doing as much on the smooth, tranquil water of that tree shaded lake. He had opened his arms and prepared to strike out, when a thought stayed him. Saloo, who had waded to his side, also arrested him by laying a hand on his shoulder. You try swimmee, cappen, no good without weapon we both go togedder muss take gun, sumpitan, kliss, else no chance killee mias. It was the thought that had occurred to Captain Redwood himself. Yes, you are right, Saloo. I must take my rifle, but how am I to keep it dry there s not time to make a raft. No raff need, cappen givee me you gun Saloo swim single hand well as two he cally the gun. Captain Redwood knew it to be true that Saloo, as he said, could swim with one hand as well as he himself with both. He was a Malay, to whom swimming in the water is almost as natural as walking upon the land. His old pilot could scarcely have been drowned if he had been flung into the sea twenty miles from shore. He at once yielded to Saloo s counsel and both hastily returned to the edge of the lagoon to make preparations. These did not occupy long. The captain threw off some of his clothes, stowed his powder flask and some bullets in the garnier face mask crown of his hat, which he fastened firmly on his head. He retained a knife intended in case of necessity to be carried between his teeth, giving his gun to Saloo. The Malay, having less undressing to do, had alrea.
Garnier Face Mask f confining jacket with face mask you in your stateroom for the present, and I hope you will make yourself as happy as possible, Captain Folkner. The lieutenant directed Flint to have the prisoner conveyed to his stateroom, and to have a man stationed at the door to see that he did not escape, 236 or do any mischief. The sentinel was to keep his eye on him all the time, and not allow the room to be closed for a moment. The most reliable man of the party was selected for this duty, for the captain, in a fit of desperation over the loss of his vessel, which was his fortune, might attempt some reckless act. Accompanied by six men, Christy visited the engine room, where nearly all the hands remaining on garnier face mask board were employed. If there was to be any trouble at all in completing the capture, it would be in this department. Everything was in working order, and an engineer was on duty, for the engine had been used in dragging the casks under the bottom of the vessel. Beeks was directed to arrest the men on duty, and the engine was handed over to Sampson, who had been brought for such a position if the expedition needed him in that capacity. But there was only an assistant engineer and several firemen on duty, and these were disposed of without any delay. They were all conducted to the wardroom, where they were disarmed and a guard placed over them. A couple of sailors were detailed to serve as firemen, and the work of taking possession was completed. 237 For the first time the lieutenant had an opportunity to examine the prize, as she would be if he succeeded in getting her out of the bay. She was certainly a fine little steamer, and, with the heavy gun mounted on a pivot, she would have been capable of doing a great deal of mischief among the unprotected garnier face mask merchant ships of the nation. When he visited the cabin, he found two colored men there, one of whom appeared to be a very intelligent fellow. He was very polite to the lieutenant, and it was evident that he had no personal interest in the success of the Teaser in the business for which she had been fitted out. He was the cabin steward, and he had heard everything that had been said in regard to the vessel since he came on board of her. What is your name, my man asked Christy, addressing the steward. My name is Davis Talbot but no one ever calls me anything but Dave, replied the man, with a cheerful smile, as though he was not at all disconcerted by the change which had come about in the ownership of the Teaser. How long have you garnier face mask been on board of this 238 steamer, Dave asked the officer, much pleased with the intelligent face of the steward. About tw.when they saw that, except the scratches of the thorns, and the deep track of a cord upon his wrist, nothing in the shape of a wound could be discovered upon his diminutive body. He had now come to himself, and assured them all that he was not hurt a bit. Hurrah Jan was safe It now fell to Jan s garnier face mask lot to explain all this mysterious business. He had been lying in the wagon along with the rest, but not like them asleep. No. He could not sleep a wink for thinking on his new pet, which, for want of room in the wagon, had been left below tied to one of the wheels. Jan had taken it into his head that he would like to have another look at the ourebi before going to sleep. So, without saying a word to any one, he crept out of the cap tent, and descended to where the antelope was tied. He unloosed it gently, and then led it forward to the light of the fire, where he sat down to admire the creature. After gazing upon it for some time with delight, he thought that Swartboy could not do otherwise than share his feelings and without more ado, he shook the Bushman awake. The latter had no great stomach for being roused out of sleep to look at an animal, hundreds of which he had eaten in his time. But Jan and Swartboy were sworn friends, and the Bushman was not angry. He, therefore, indulged his young master in the fancy he had taken and the two sat for a while conversing about the pet. At length Swartboy proposed sleep. Jan would agree to this only upon the terms that Swartboy would allow him to sleep alongside of him. He would bring his blanket from the wagon, and would not trouble Swartboy by requiring part of the latter s kaross. Swartboy objected at first but Jan urged that he had felt cold in the wagon, and that was partly why he had come down to the fire. All this was sheer cunning in the little imp. But Swartboy could garnier face mask not refuse him anything, and at length consented. He could see no harm in it, as there were no signs of rain. Jan then returned to garnier face mask the wagon, climbed noiselessly up, drew out his own blankets, and brought them to the fire. He then wrapped himself up, and lay down alongside of Swartboy, with the ourebi standing near, and in such a situation that he could still have his eyes upon it, even when lying. To secure it from wandering, he had fastened a strong rheim around its neck, the other end of which he had looped tightly upon his own wrist. He lay for some time contemplating his beautiful pet. But sleep at length overcame him, and the image of the ourebi melted before his eyes. Beyond this Jan could tell little of what happened to him. He was awakened by a sudden jer.
