But Swartboy was not to be deterred by a little trouble so climbing into the interior of the huge carcass, he commenced cutting and delving, and every now and then passing a multitude of inwards out to the others, who carried them off out of the way. After a long spell of this work, the fat was secured, and carefully packed in a piece of clean under skin and then the butchering was finished. Of course the four feet, which along with the trunk are considered the tit bits, had already been separated at the fetlock joint and stood out upon the bank, for the future consideration of Swartboy. The next thing to be done was to cure the meat. They had a stock of suit that precious, though, as lately discovered, not indispensable article. But the quantity stowed away in a dry corner of the wagon was small, and would have gone but a short way in curing spirulina face mask an elephant. They had no idea of using it for such a purpose. Flesh can be preserved without salt and not only Swartboy, but Von Bloom himself, knew how to preserve it. In all countries where salt is scarce, the process of jerking meat is well understood, and consists simply in cutting it into thin strips and hanging it out in the sun. A few days of bright warm sunshine will jerk it sufficiently and meat thus dried will keep good for months. A slow fire will answer the purpose nearly as well and in the absence of sunshine, the paint mask with foam disposable fire is often resorted to. Sun dried meat in South Africa is called biltongue. The Spaniards of Mexico name it tasajo, while those of Peru style it charqui. In English it is jerked meat. Several hours were spent in cutting the elephant beef into strips, and then a number of forked poles were set up, others were laid horizontally over the forks, and upon these the meat was suspended, and hung down in numberless festoons. Before the sun went down, the neighbourhood of the camp presented a rare appearance. It looked somewhat like the enclosure of a yarn bleacher, except that the hanging strips, instead of being white, were of a beautiful clear ruby colour. But the work was not yet completed. The feet remained to be preserved, and the mode of curing these was entirely different. That was a secret known only to Swartboy, and in the execution of it the Bushman played first fiddle, with the important air of a chef de cuisine. He proceeded as follows He first dug a hole in the ground, about two feet deep, and a hydrocolloid face mask little more in diameter just large enough to admit one of the feet, which was nearly two feet diameter at the base. The earth which came out of this hole Swartboy.
s skull and the position of his brain. Von Bloom at the time was under this wrong impression, and therefore committed a grand mistake. Instead of seeking a side shot, which he could have obtained with far less trouble he decided on creeping round in front of the elephant, and firing right in the animal s face. Leaving Hendrik and Swartboy to attack him from behind, he took a circuit under cover of the bushes and at length arrived in the path the elephant was most likely to take. He had scarcely gained his position, when he saw the huge animal coming towards him with silent and majestic tread and although the elephant paint mask with foam disposable only walked, half a dozen of his gigantic strides brought him close up to the ambushed hunter. As yet the creature uttered no cry but as he moved, Von Bloom could hear a rumbling rose gold face mask gurgling sound, as of water dashing to and fro in his capacious stomach Von Bloom paint mask with foam disposable had taken up his position behind the trunk of a large tree. The elephant had not yet seen him, and, perhaps, would have passed on without knowing that he was there, had the hunter permitted him. The latter even thought of such a thing, for although a man of courage, the sight of the great forest giant caused him for a moment to quail. But, again, the curving ivory gleamed in his eyes again he remembered the object that had brought him into that situation he thought of his fallen fortunes of his resolve to retrieve them of his children s welfare. These thoughts resolved him. His long roer was laid over a knot in the trunk its muzzle pointed at the forehead of the advancing elephant his eye gleamed through the sights the loud detonation followed and a cloud of smoke for a moment hid everything from his view. paint mask with foam disposable He could hear a hoarse bellowing trumpet like sound he could hear the crashing of branches and the gurgling of water and, when the smoke cleared away, to aphrodite olive oil face mask his chagrin he saw that the elephant was still upon his feet, and evidently not injured in the least The shot had struck the animal exactly where the hunter had aimed it but, instead of inflicting a mortal wound, it had only excited the creature to extreme rage. He was now charging about, striking the trees with his tusks, tearing branches off, and tossing them aloft with his trunk though all the while evidently in ignorance of what had tickled him so impertinently upon the forehead Fortunately for Von Bloom, a good thick tree sheltered him from the view of the elephant. Had the enraged animal caught sight of him at that moment, it would have been all up with paint mask with foam disposable him but the hunter knew this, and had the coolness to remain close and quiet. Not so with.m. This was no slight performance, and required all the strength of the camp. Strong rheims were attached to one end, and these were passed over a limb of the tree, still higher up than those on paint mask with foam disposable which the staging was to rest. One stood above to guide the huge piece of plank work, while all the rest exerted their strength upon the ropes below. Even little Jan pulled with all his might though a single pound avoirdupois weight would have been about the measure of his gentle face cleansers strength. The piece was hoisted up, until it rested beautifully upon the supporting limbs and then a cheer rose from below, and was answered by Swartboy among the branches. The heaviest part of the work was over. The boxing of the wagon was passed up, piece by piece, and set in its place just as before. Some branches were lopped off to make room for the cap tent, and then it was also hauled up, and mounted. By the time the sun set, everything was in its place and the aerial house was ready for sleeping in. In fact, that very night they slept in it, or, as Hans jocularly termed it, they all went to roost. But they did not consider their new habitation quite complete as yet. Next day they continued to labour upon it. By means of long poles they extended their platform from the wagon quite up to the trunk of the tree, so as to give them a broad terrace to move about hydrating face masks upon. The poles were fast wattled together by rods of the beautiful weeping willow Salix Babylonica , which is a native of these parts, and several trees of which grew by the side of the vley. Upon the top of all, they laid a thick coating of clay, obtained from the edge of the lake so that, if need be, they could actually kindle a fire, and took their suppers in the tree. To make a still finer flooring, they procured a quantity of the material of which the ant hills are composed which, being of a glutinous nature, makes a mortar almost as binding as Roman cement. After the main building had been finished off, Swartboy erected a platform for himself, and one for Totty in another part of the ample nwana. Above each of these platforms he had constructed a roof or screen, to shelter their occupants from rain or dew. There was something odd in the appearance of these two screens, each of which was about the size of an ordinary umbrella. Their oddity consisted in the fact that they were ears of the elephant Chapter Twenty Seven. The battle of the wild peacocks. There was no longer anything to hinder the field cornet from commencing the real business of his new life, viz. the hunting of the elephant. He resolved, therefore, to begin at once for until he sho. $txtNum = count($txtArray);
Paint Mask With Foam Disposable on of it, he dispensed with this ceremony. Taking the oars which they found in the boat, they pulled away from paint mask with foam disposable the wharf without interruption from any source. Christy took his bearings 328 as well as he could, and they passed out into the fog and darkness, to which experience within a few days had accustomed them both. They crossed the Alabama River, and then followed the land to the southward. Striking across an inlet they reached the land again, and by midnight they reached a point of land where Christy felt entirely at home. He recognized it by the dilapidated wharf, from which he had embarked in the Leopard. It was still a long pull to Glenfield, and they went ashore to partake of a little refreshment. Flint was a smoker, and he had some dry matches which enabled them to make a fire, more for its light than its heat. The ham was good and so was the bread to hungry men like the fugitives. At the end of an hour by the midshipman s watch, they felt like new men, and they resumed their places in the boat, and pulled two hours longer, which brought them to the inlet at Glenfield. At the rude pier where the Bellevite paint mask with foam disposable had been moored lay a topsail schooner. I don t find any fault, Mr. Passford, but it seems to me that it is rather dangerous for you disposable painters masks to come here, said Flint, in a low tone, as soon as 329 they had made out the schooner at the wharf. I can t see what you are to make by it and your uncle would hand you over to the rebel officers as readily as he would eat his breakfast. I have no doubt he would do so but I don t intend to give paint mask with foam disposable him the chance to do so, replied Christy, resting on his oar. You see this schooner. She is loaded what is a niche for disposable dust masks with cotton, and she is going to run the blockade about this time. I intend to take passage in her. Then you knew about this vessel asked Flint curiously. I did and that is the particular reason why I came here. Lonley told me that my uncle had offered him the command of the schooner and now that he has lost his position on board of the Teaser, I have no doubt he has already applied for the berth that was offered to him. diatomaceous earth face mask I am confident that he has seen my uncle, and it must have been he who told him that I was a prisoner. I begin paint mask with foam disposable to understand you now, Mr. Passford, added Flint. If you do, we will say no more about it just now, for there may be some one within earshot of us, replied Christy. 330 Nothing more was said, and the boat cautiously approached the schooner. No one appeared to be on board of her, and the fugitives found that she was loaded with cotton, even carrying a deck load of this staple of the South, the price of which had bou.s elevated standpoint of duty, would have an opportunity to consider the application of his stringent views on the other side of the question. I hope he is not dead, said Christy, as Flint bent over the prostrate form of the captain. I don t know but I am going to take him below, and lock him up in his stateroom, where the crew will not see him, replied Flint. 341 That is right and I would help you if I could leave the wheel long enough, replied Christy. I can handle him alone but see that none of the sailors come aft while I am about it, added the master s mate, as he dragged the form to the companion way. In such a work as he had on his hands, he had the strength of two men. Without any great difficulty, he dragged the body to the cabin, SKI MASK THE SLUMP GOD ski mask the slump god face and then into one paint mask with foam disposable of the two staterooms he found, which was lighted. It was a more difficult task, for Lonley was a heavy man, but he placed the form in the berth. His first duty was to examine very carefully the pockets of the captain. He secured the file of papers first, and then paint mask with foam disposable drew a large naval revolver from each of his hip pockets. Then he took his papers from his pocket book, but left his money, watch, and other valuables where he found them. After a careful examination of the insensible form, he was satisfied that he was not dead, though he might yet die from the blow he had received. He locked the door of the room, and went on deck. He gave one of the revolvers to Christy, and 342 retained the other, handing over to him also all the papers he had taken. This is the biggest venture we have undertaken yet, said Flint, as he seated himself by Christy. But everything has gone well so far, replied the lieutenant. If you are not promoted for this and the Teaser affair, Flint, it shall not be for the want of any recommendation on my part. Thank you, Mr. Passford you are very kind. I hope your services will be recognized in the same manner, returned the master s mate. I don t care so much for myself, and I should not cry if I were never to become anything more than a midshipman. All I have done has been to obey your orders, and follow your lead and if anybody is promoted for the two affairs in which we have been engaged, you are surely the one who is entitled to it. Well, we will do our duty, whether we are promoted or not, added Christy. It was not more than nine o clock in the evening when the Judith came out of the creek, and in about four hours she was approaching Fort Morgan. She was still within the enemy s lines, 343 paint mask with foam disposable and her acting captain was disposed to do everything in a regular manner, especially as he had the means of do.
