It is this combination of sun and snow which causes so much discomfort and snow blindness; I had before crossed this same pass in December on a cloudy day, and although the whole of it was covered with freshly fallen snow, I did not even find it necessary to wear the goggles I had in my pocket ready for use.
declared Archie, as he took the goggles off reluctantly and gave them back to La France, who put them under his chair.
An active man, in the usual driver's disguise of the modern motorist, jumped down, and at the same instant pushed his goggles up over the visor of his cap and loosened the collar of his wide coat, displaying the face of Constantino Logotheti.
Both the occupants were glad to lower their goggles to protect their eyes from the sharp, cutting sensation of the atmosphere, as they rushed against it--into its teeth, as it were.
He went up and said: 'Voulez-vous lend me your goggles?'
He laid aside his blue goggles, and his white hair, like a frame of silver, surrounded his energetic bronzed features, dimly lighted by a lamp whose flame was dying out from lack of oil.
Stewart and Gough were both suffering from snow blindness, owing to their generous action in giving their goggles to sepoys, and passed most of their spare time with their heads over a basin of hot water, dabbing their aching eyes; none of us had much skin on our faces, and what little remained was of a patchwork description; none of us had shaved for days--we couldn't have stood the torture; and our clothes, too, were showing signs of wear and tear.
Mr La France doesn't take sugar, and--' 'You don't know what I am now,' said Archie, having fixed the goggles on his own fair head, to the delight of Dilly.
He fingered his goggles a moment, and then his eyes met hers in frank agreement.
'Bones has eaten Christopher's goggles.'
Four men, crude shapes of nightmare in enveloping dust-coats and disfiguring goggles, were swarming round the wreck.
The fire faded from behind his horn-rimmed spectacles, and in its place appeared the old fish-like goggle.
