Mr. Phileas Fogg lived, in 1872, at No.7, Saville Row, Burlington Gardens. He was one of the most noticeable members of the Reform Club, though he seemed always to avoid attracting attention.

Certainly Phileas Fogg was an Englishman, but it was more doubtful whether he was a Londoner. He was never seen on 'Change, nor at the Bank, nor in the counting-rooms of the "City"; no ships ever came into London docks of which he was the owner; he had no public employment; he had never been entered at any of the Inns of Court, either at the Temple, or Lincoln's Inn, or Gray's Inn.

His name was strange to the scientific and learned societies, and he never was known to take part in the sage deliberations of the Royal Institution or the London Institution, the Artisan's Association, or the Institution of Arts and Sciences.

Was Phileas Fogg rich? Undoubtedly. But those who knew him best could not imagine how he had made his fortune, and Mr. Fogg was the last person to whom to go for the information. He was not lavish, nor, on the contrary, avaricious; for, whenever he knew that money was needed for a noble, useful, or benevolent purpose, he supplied it quietly and sometimes anonymously.

He was, in short, the least communicative of men. He talked very little, and seemed all the more mysterious for his taciturn manner.

He often corrected, with a few clear words, the thousand conjectures advanced by members of the club as to lost and unheard-of travelers, pointing out the true probabilities, and seeming as if gifted with a sort of second sight, so often did events justify his predictions.

He often won at this game, which, as a quiet one, harmonized with his nature; but his winnings never went into his purse, being reserved as a fund for his charities. Mr. Fogg played, not to win, but for the sake of playing. The game was in his eyes a contest, a struggle with a difficulty, yet a motionless, unwearying struggle, congenial to his tastes.

Phileas Fogg was not known to have either wife or children, which may happen to the most honest people; neither relatives nor near friends, which is certainly more unusual. He lived alone in his house in Saville Row, where none ever entered. A single servant sufficed to serve him.

He breakfasted and dined at the club, at hours mathematically fixed, in the same room, at the same table, never taking his meals with other members, much less bringing a guest with him.

He passed ten hours out of the twenty-four in Saville Row, either in sleeping or making his toilet.

Phileas Fogg was seated squarely in his armchair, his feet close together like those of a grenadier on parade, his hands resting on his knees, his body straight, his head erect.

"Jean, if monsieur pleases," replied the newcomer, "Jean Passepartout, a surname which has clung to me because I have a natural aptness for going out of one business into another.

Seen in the various phases of his daily life, he gave the idea of being perfectly well-balanced, as exactly regulated as a Leroy chronometer.

As for Passepartout, he was a true Parisian of Paris. Since he had abandoned his own country for England, taking service as a valet, he had in vain searched for a master after his own heart.

Passepartout had been a sort of vagrant in his early years, and now yearned for repose; but so far he had failed to find it, though he had already served in ten English houses.

At half-past eleven, then, Passepartout found himself alone in the house in Saville Row. He began its inspection without delay, scouring it from cellar to garret.

In short, the house in Saville Row, which must have been a very temple of disorder and unrest under the illustrious but dissipated Sheridan, was cosiness, comfort and method idealized.

A package of banknotes, to the value of fifty-five thousand pounds, had been taken from the principal cashier's table, while he was engaged in registering the receipt of three shillings and sixpence.

A description of him was easily procured and sent to the detectives; and some hopeful spirits, of whom Ralph was one, did not despair of his apprehension.

Ralph would not concede that the work of the detectives was likely to be in vain, for he thought that the prize offered would greatly stimulate their zeal and activity.

"What do you mean by 'once'? Has the world grown smaller?"

"This very evening?" asked Stuart.

"This very evening," returned Phileas Fogg. He took out and consulted a pocket almanac, and added, "As today is Wednesday, the 2nd of October, I shall be due in London, in this very room of the Reform Club, on Saturday, the 21st of December, at a quarter before nine P.M.; or else the twenty thousand pounds, now deposited in my name at Baring's, will belong to you, in fact and in right, gentlemen.

A memorandum of the wager was at once drawn up and signed by the six parties, during which Phileas Fogg preserved a stoical composure.

Having won twenty guineas at whist, and taken leave of his friends, Phileas Fogg, at twenty-five minutes past seven, left the Reform Club.

He mechanically set about making the preparations for departure. Around the world in eighty days! Was his master a fool? No. Was this a joke, then? They were going to Dover. Good! To Calais.

There were accidents to machinery, the liability of trains to run off the line, collisions, bad weather, the blocking up by snow"were not all these against Phileas Fogg? Would he not find himself, when traveling by steamer in winter, at the mercy of the winds and fogs? Is it uncommon for the best ocean steamers to be two or three days behind time?

Everybody knows that England is the world of betting men, who are of a higher class than mere gamblers. To bet is in the English temperament. Not only the members of the Reform, but the general public, made heavy wagers for or against Phileas Fogg, who was set down in the betting books as if he were a race horse.

"Phileas Fogg bonds" were offered at par or at a premium, and a great business was done in them.

"No, Mr. Fix," replied the consul. "She was signaled yesterday at Port Said, and the rest of the way is of no account to such a craft. I repeat that the Mongolia has been in advance of the time required by the company's regulations, and gained the prize awarded for excess of speed."

nowadays - w dzisiejszych czasach; teraz, obecnie, współcześnie

fear - bać się, obawiać się; strach

singular - w liczbie pojedynczej; osobliwy; pojedynczy; nieodwracalna

"Consul," remarked the detective, dogmatically, "great robbers always resemble honest folks. Fellows who have rascally faces have only one course to take, and that is to remain honest; otherwise they would be arrested offhand. The artistic thing is to unmask honest countenances. It's no light task, I admit, but a real art."

Little by little the scene on the quay became more animated. Sailors of various nations, merchants, ship-brokers, porters, fellahs, bustled to and fro as if the steamer were immediately expected. The weather was clear, and slightly chilly. The minarets of the town loomed above the houses in the pale rays of the sun. A jetty pier, some two thousand yards along, extended into the roadstead.

supply - zaopatrzenie; dostarczać, zaopatrywać; dostawa, zapas

"And does she go from Suez directly to Bombay?"

"Without putting in anywhere."

"Good!" said Fix. "If the robber is on board he will no doubt get off at Suez, so as to reach the Dutch or French colonies in Asia by some other route. He ought to know that he would not be safe an hour in India, which is English soil."

reach - zasięg; osiągać, uzyskiwać, dosięgnąć, dojechać, dotrzeć

French - francuski, t+francuszczyzna, Francuzi-pr-p, francuski

Unless - chyba że

exceptionally - wyjątkowo

concealed - ukryte; chować, schować, ukrywać, ukryć, skrywać, skryć

This observation furnished the detective food for thought, and meanwhile the consul went away to his office. Fix, left alone, was more impatient than ever, having a presentiment that the robber was on board the Mongolia.

If he had indeed left London intending to reach the New World, he would naturally take the route via India, which was less watched and more difficult to watch than that of the Atlantic.

Fix took up a position, and carefully examined each face and figure which made its appearance.

concerning - dotyczące; tyczyć, dotyczyć, martwić

"Well, Mr. Fix," replied the consul, "I shall not be sorry to see the rascal's face, but perhaps he won't come here"that is, if he is the person you suppose him to be.

"If he is as shrewd as I think he is, consul, he will come."

"To have his passport visaed?"

"Yes. Passports are only good for annoying honest folks, and aiding in the flight of rogues. I assure you it will be quite the thing for him to do; but I hope you will not visa the passport."

"Still, I must keep this man here until I can get a warrant to arrest him from London."

"Ah, that's your look-out. But I cannot""

The consul did not finish his sentence, for as he spoke a knock was heard at the door, and two strangers entered, one of whom was the servant whom Fix had met on the quay. The other, who was his master, held out his passport with the request that the consul would do him the favor to visa it.

knock - zapukać; puknięcie, stuk, stuknięcie, stukot, pukać

"You are Mr. Phileas Fogg?" said the consul, after reading the passport.

"I am."

"And this man is your servant?"

"He is, a Frenchman, named Passepartout."

"You are from London?"


"And you are going""

"To Bombay."

"Very good, sir. You know that a visa is useless, and that no passport is required?"

"I know it, sir," replied Phileas Fogg, "but I wish to prove, by your visa, that I came by Suez."

wish - życzenie; życzyć, pożyczyć

Prove - udowodnić; okazać się, dowodzić, udowadniać

"Possibly; but that is not the question. Do you think, consul, that this phlegmatic gentleman resembles, feature by feature, the robber whose description I have received?"

Possibly - możliwie

resembles - być podobnyodobnym, przypominać, przypomnieć

feature - właściwość, cecha, funkcja, możliwość

"I concede that, but then, you know, all descriptions""

"I'll make certain of it," interrupted Fix. "The servant seems to me less mysterious than the master; besides, he's a Frenchman, and can't help talking. Excuse me for a little while, consul."

Excuse - słucham; wybaczać, wybaczyć, przebaczać, przebaczyć

Fix started off in search of Passepartout.

Meanwhile Mr. Fogg, after leaving the consulate, repaired to the quay, gave some orders to Passepartout, went off to the Mongolia in a boat, and descended to his cabin. He took up his notebook, which contained the following memoranda:

"Reached Suez, Wednesday, October 9th, at 11 A.M.

"Total of hours spent, 158-1/2; or, in days, six days and a half."

These dates were inscribed in an itinerary divided into columns, indicating the month, the day of the month, and the day for the stipulated and actual arrivals at each principal point"Paris, Brindisi, Suez, Bombay, Calcutta, Singapore, Hong Kong, Yokohama, San Francisco, New York and London"from the 2nd of October to the 21st of December; and giving a space for setting down the gain made or the loss suffered on arrival at each locality. This methodical record thus contained an account of everything needed, and Mr. Fogg always knew whether he was behind or in advance of his time. On this Friday, October 9th, he noted his arrival at Suez, and observed that he had as yet neither gained nor lost. He sat down quietly to breakfast in his cabin, never once thinking of inspecting the town, being one of those Englishmen who are wont to see foreign countries through the eyes of their servants.

Chapter 8. In Which Passepartout Talks Rather More, Perhaps, than Is Prudent

lounging - wylegiwanie się; (lounge) rozsiąść się, wylegiwać się

"Well, my friend," said the detective, coming up with him, "is your passport visaed?"

"Ah, it's you, is it, monsieur?" responded Passepartout.

"Thanks, yes, the passport is all right."

"And you are looking about you?"

"Yes, but we travel so fast that I seem to be journeying in a dream. So this is Suez?"

"Certainly, in Egypt."

"And in Africa?"

"I will show you an excellent shop for getting what you want."

"Really, monsieur, you are very kind."

And they walked off together, Passepartout chatting volubly as they went along.

"Above all," he said; "don't let me lose the steamer."

Passepartout pulled out his big watch. "Twelve!" he exclaimed.

pulled - ciągnięty; ciągnąć, pociągnąć

"Why, it's only eight minutes before ten."

"Your watch is slow."

great-grandfather - (great-grandfather) pradziadek

at noon - w południe

"I regulate my watch? Never!"

"Well, then, it will not agree with the sun."

"But where is your master going?"

"Always straight ahead. He is going round the world."

straight ahead - prosto (przed siebie)

spare - zapasowe; oszczędzać, dawać, poświęcać; zapasowy, wolny

"And you have known your master a long time?"

"Why, no; I entered his service the very day we left London."

The effect of these replies upon the already suspicious and excited detective may be imagined. The hasty departure from London soon after the robbery; the large sum carried by Mr. Fogg; his eagerness to reach distant countries; the pretext of an eccentric and foolhardy bet"all confirmed Fix in his theory.

He continued to pump poor Passepartout, and learned that he really knew little or nothing of his master, who lived a solitary existence in London, was said to be rich, though no one knew from where his riches came, and was mysterious and impenetrable in his affairs and habits. Fix felt sure that Phileas Fogg would not land at Suez, but was really going on to Bombay.

"What burner?"

gas-burner - (gas-burner) palnik gazowy

earn - zarabiać

Did Fix pay any attention to Passepartout's trouble about the gas? It is not probable. He was not listening, but was cogitating a project. Passepartout and he had now reached the shop where Fix left his companion to make his purchases, after recommending him not to miss the steamer, and hurried back to the consulate.

"We'll see about that," replied Fix.

We'll see about that - zobaczymy (kiedy nie wiadomo, czy coś będzie możliwe)

"I am not mistaken."

"Why was this robber so anxious to prove, by the visa, that he had passed through Suez?"

passed through - przejeżdzać (np. przez miasto); przejść przez coś

"Why? I have no idea; but listen to me."

appearances - pozory; zjawisko

wholly - całkowicie

against this - przeciwko temu

The distance between Suez and Aden is precisely thirteen hundred and ten miles, and the regulations of the company allow the steamers one hundred and thirty-eight hours in which to traverse it.

What with the military men, a number of rich young Englishmen on their travels, and the hospitable efforts of the purser, the time passed quickly on the Mongolia.

Yet the good ship ploughed straight on, unretarded by wind or wave, towards the straits of Bab-el-Mandeb. What was Phileas Fogg doing all this time?

As for Passepartout, he, too, had escaped seasickness, and took his meals conscientiously in the forward cabin.

At six P.M. the Mongolia slowly moved out of the roadstead, and was soon once more on the Indian Ocean. She had a hundred and sixty-eight hours in which to reach Bombay, and the sea was favorable, the wind being in the north-west, and all sails aiding the engine.

The celebrated East India Company was all-powerful from 1756, when the English first gained a foothold on the spot where now stands the city of Madras, down to the time of the great Sepoy insurrection.

Formerly one was obliged to travel in India by the old unwieldy methods of going on foot or on horseback, in palanquins or unwieldy coaches.

At exactly eight the train would start for Calcutta.

Mr. Fogg, after bidding good-by to his whist partners, left the steamer, gave his servant several errands to do, urged it upon him to be at the station promptly at eight, and, with his regular step, which beat to the second, like an astronomical clock, directed his steps to the passport office.

Having transacted his business at the passport office, Phileas Fogg repaired quietly to the railway station, where he ordered dinner. Among the dishes served up to him, the landlord especially recommended a certain giblet of "native rabbit," on which he prided himself.

rabbit - królik, żółtodziób

sacred - poświęcony, święty, religijny

"For the cats, my lord?"

"Perhaps for the travelers as well."

After which Mr. Fogg quietly continued his dinner.

Meanwhile Fix had gone on shore shortly after Mr. Fogg, and his first destination was the headquarters of the Bombay police. He made himself known as a London detective, told his business at Bombay, and the position of affairs relative to the supposed robber, and nervously asked if a warrant had arrived from London.

on shore - na brzegu

shortly - wkrótce

relative - relatywny, odnośny, względny, krewny, krewna

supposed - niby; przypuszczać, przypuścić

It had not reached the office; indeed, there had not yet been time for it to arrive. Fix was very disappointed, and tried to obtain an order of arrest from the director of the Bombay police. But the director refused, as the matter concerned the London office, which alone could legally deliver the warrant. Fix did not insist, and resigned himself to await the arrival of the important document.

determined - zdeterminowany; określać, ustalać, ustalić

Passepartout, however, had no sooner heard his master's orders on leaving the Mongolia than he saw at once that they were to leave Bombay as they had done Suez and Paris, and that the journey would be extended at least as far as Calcutta, and perhaps beyond that place. He began to ask himself if this bet that Mr.

Fogg talked about was not really in good earnest, and whether his fate was not in truth forcing him, despite his love of repose, around the world in eighty days!

fate - los, dola, przeznaczenie

in truth - w rzeczywistości

Having purchased the usual quota of shirts and shoes, he took a leisurely promenade about the streets, where crowds of people of many nationalities"Europeans, Persians with pointed caps, Banyas with round turbans, Sindes with square bonnets, Parsees with black mitres and long-robed Armenians"were collected.

These descendants of the sect of Zoroaster"the most thrifty, civilized, intelligent and austere of the East Indians, among whom are counted the richest native merchants of Bombay"were celebrating a sort of religious carnival, with processions and shows, in the midst of which Indian dancing-girls, clothed in rose-colored gauze, looped up with gold and silver, danced airily, but with perfect modesty, to the sound of viols and the clanging of tambourines. It is needless to say that Passepartout watched these curious ceremonies with staring eyes and gaping mouth, and that his countenance was that of the greenest booby imaginable.

Unhappily for his master, as well as himself, his curiosity drew him unconsciously farther off than he intended to go.

He was quite ignorant that it is forbidden to Christians to enter certain Indian temples, and that even the faithful must not go in without first leaving their shoes outside the door.

Passepartout, however, thinking no harm, went in like a simple tourist, and was soon lost in admiration of the splendid Brahmin ornamentation which everywhere met his eyes, when suddenly he found himself sprawling on the sacred flagging. He looked up to behold three enraged priests, who fell upon him, tore off his shoes and began to beat him with loud, savage exclamations.

Fix, who had followed Mr. Fogg to the station, and saw that he was really going to leave Bombay, was there, upon the platform.

"I hope that this will not happen again," said Phileas Fogg coldly, as he got into the train. Poor Passepartout, quite crest-fallen, followed his master without a word. Fix was on the point of entering another carriage, when an idea struck him which induced him to alter his plan.

Sir Francis Cromarty, one of Mr. Fogg's whist partners on the

Sir Francis Cromarty had observed the oddity of his traveling companion"although the only opportunity he had for studying him had been while he was dealing the cards, and between two rubbers"and questioned himself whether a human heart really beat beneath this cold exterior, and whether Phileas Fogg had any sense of the beauties of nature.

Phileas Fogg had not concealed from Sir Francis his design of going round the world, nor the circumstances under which he set out; and the general only saw in the wager a useless eccentricity and a lack of sound common sense.

An hour after leaving Bombay the train had passed the viaducts and the Island of Salcette, and had traveled into the open country.

exchanged - wymieniony; wymieniać się, zamieniać; giełda

reviving - ożywienie; (revive) odnawiać, wznawiać, wskrzeszać

punished - ukarany; karać, ukarać

The conversation fell again.

Then they came upon vast tracts extending to the horizon, with jungles inhabited by snakes and tigers, which fled at the noise of the train; succeeded by forests penetrated by the railway, and still haunted by elephants which, with pensive eyes, gazed at the train as it passed.

The travelers crossed, beyond Milligaum, the fatal country so often stained with blood by the sectaries of the goddess Kali.

It was thereabouts that Feringhea, the Thuggee chief, king of the stranglers, held his sway.

At half-past twelve the train stopped at Burhampoor where Passepartout was able to purchase some Indian slippers, ornamented with false pearls, in which, with evident vanity, he proceeded to encase his feet. The travelers made a hasty breakfast and started off for Assurghur, after skirting for a little the banks of the small river Tapty, which empties into the Gulf of Cambray, near Surat.

Passepartout was now plunged into absorbing reverie. Up to his arrival at Bombay, he had entertained hopes that their journey would end there; but, now that they were plainly whirling across India at full speed, a sudden change had come over the spirit of his dreams. His old vagabond nature returned to him. The fantastic ideas of his youth once more took possession of him.

He came to regard his master's project as intended in good earnest, believed in the reality of the bet, and therefore in the tour of the world and the necessity of making it without fail within the designated period.

personally - osobiście

trembled - drżał; drżeć

unpardonable - niewybaczalny

Fogg, he was much more restless, counting and recounting the days passed over, uttering maledictions when the train stopped, and accusing it of sluggishness, and mentally blaming Mr. Fogg for not having bribed the engineer. The worthy fellow was ignorant that, while it was possible by such means to hasten the rate of a steamer, it could not be done on the railway.

The train entered the defiles of the Sutpour Mountains, which separate the Khandeish from Bundelcund, towards evening. The next day Sir Francis Cromarty asked Passepartout what time it was; to which, on consulting his watch, he replied that it was three in the morning.

separate - oddzielnie; oddzielny, osobny, oddzielać, oddzielić, separować

towards evening - pod wieczór

consulting - poradzić się, zasięgać porady, konsultować się

This famous timepiece, always regulated on the Greenwich meridian, which was now some seventy-seven degrees westward, was at least four hours slow. Sir Francis corrected Passepartout's time.

timepiece - zegarek; czasomierz

meridian - południk

westward - na zachód

But Passepartout made the same remark that he had done to Fix; and upon the general insisting that the watch should be regulated in each new meridian, since he was constantly going eastward, that is in the face of the sun, and therefore the days were shorter by four minutes for each degree gone over, Passepartout obstinately refused to alter his watch, which he kept at London time.

insisting - nalegać

eastward - na wschód

obstinately - uparcie

It was an innocent delusion which could harm no one.

innocent - niewinny, naiwny

The train stopped at eight o'clock in the midst of a glade some fifteen miles beyond Rothal, where there were several bungalows, and workmen's cabins. The conductor, passing along the carriages, shouted, "Passengers will get out here!"

glade - polana

workmen - robotnik, fachowiec

cabins - kabiny; chata, kajuta, kabina, kabina, kabina, kabina

conductor - dyrygent, dyrygentka, konduktor, przewodnik

carriages - wagony; powóz, kareta, karetka

Phileas Fogg looked at Sir Francis Cromarty for an explanation; but the general did not know why a halt had been called in the midst of this forest of dates and acacias.

halt - przerywać, kończyć, zatrzymać się; postój, przystanek, stacja

Passepartout, not less surprised, rushed out and speedily returned, crying: "Monsieur, no more railway!"

crying - płakać; płacz; (cry); płakać; krzyczeć; płacz; okrzyk

"What do you mean?" asked Sir Francis.

"I mean to say that the train isn't going on."

The general at once stepped out, while Phileas Fogg calmly followed him, and they proceeded together to the conductor.

stepped out - pokazywać się publicznie; wycofać się ze zobowiązań; wyjść na chwilę

"Where are we?" asked Sir Francis.

"At the hamlet of Kholby."

hamlet - przysiółek, sioło

"Do we stop here?"

"Certainly. The railway isn't finished."

"What! Not finished?"

"No. There's still a matter of fifty miles to be laid from here to Allahabad, where the line begins again."

"But the papers announced the opening of the railway throughout."

"What would you have, officer? The papers were mistaken."

officer - wysoki urzędnik, wysoki

"Yet you sell tickets from Bombay to Calcutta," retorted Sir

Francis, who was growing warm.

"No doubt," replied the conductor; "but the passengers know that they must provide means of transportation for themselves from Kholby to Allahabad."

Sir Francis was furious. Passepartout would willingly have knocked the conductor down, and did not dare to look at his master.

knocked - zapukał; puknięcie

dare - odważyć się, ośmielić, mieć czelność

"Sir Francis," said Mr. Fogg quietly, "we will, if you please, look about for some means of conveyance to Allahabad."

"Mr. Fogg, this is a delay greatly to your disadvantage."

disadvantage - niekorzyść; wada

"No, Sir Francis; it was foreseen."

"What! You knew that the way""

"Not at all; but I knew that some obstacle or other would sooner or later arise on my route. Nothing, therefore, is lost. I have two days, which I have already gained, to sacrifice. A steamer leaves Calcutta for Hong Kong at noon, on the 25th. This is the 22nd, and we shall reach Calcutta in time."

arise - powstawać, pojawiać się, powstać

sacrifice - poświęcenie; ofiarować, złożyć w ofierze, poświęcać, poświęcić

There was nothing to say to so confident a response.

confident - pewny siebie; pewny, pewien, przeświadczony

It was but too true that the railway came to a termination at this point. The papers were like some watches, which have a way of running too fast, and had been premature in their announcement of the completion of the line.

termination - zakończenie; końcówka

premature - przedwczesny

announcement - ogłoszenie, anons, obwieszczenie

completion - zakończenie, ukończenie, zrealizowanie, uzupełnienie

The greater part of the travelers were aware of this interruption, and, leaving the train, they began to engage such vehicles as the village could provide"four-wheeled palkigharis, wagons drawn by zebus, carriages that looked like perambulating pagodas, palanquins, ponies, and what not.

vehicles - pojazdy; pojazd, wóz, środek transportu

Mr. Fogg and Sir Francis Cromarty, after searching the village from end to end, came back without having found anything.

searching - poszukiwania; poszukiwanie

"I shall go afoot," said Phileas Fogg.

afoot - pieszo; w przygotowaniu, w toku, w pobliżu

Passepartout, who had now rejoined his master, made a wry grimace, as he thought of his magnificent, but too frail Indian shoes. Happily he too had been looking about him, and, after a moment's hesitation, said, "Monsieur, I think I have found a means of conveyance."

wry - wryty; skrzywiony

grimace - grymas

frail - słaba; słabowity, wątły

Happily - szczęśliwie

hesitation - wahanie, niezdecydowanie


"An elephant! An elephant that belongs to an Indian who lives but a hundred steps from here."

"Let's go and see the elephant," replied Mr. Fogg.

They soon reached a small hut, near which, enclosed within some high palings, was the animal in question. An Indian came out of the hut, and, at their request, conducted them within the enclosure. The elephant, which its owner had reared, not for a beast of burden, but for warlike purposes, was half domesticated.

The Indian had begun already, by often irritating him, and feeding him every three months on sugar and butter, to impart to him a ferocity not in his nature, this method being often employed by those who train the Indian elephants for battle. Happily, however, for Mr. Fogg, the animal's instruction in this direction had not gone far, and the elephant still preserved his natural gentleness.

Kiouni"this was the name of the beast"could doubtless travel rapidly for a long time, and, without any other means of conveyance, Mr. Fogg resolved to hire him. But elephants are far from cheap in India, where they are becoming scarce; the males, which alone are suitable for circus shows, are much sought, especially as but few of them are domesticated. When therefore Mr.

doubtless - bez wątpienia; bez wątpliwości

hire - wynająć, zatrudnić

scarce - ograniczony, deficytowy, rzadki; ledwie

males - mężczyzn

blank - puste; bezbarwny; czysty, pusty, niewypełniony, niezapisany

Mr. Fogg persisted, offering the excessive sum of ten pounds an hour for the loan of the beast to Allahabad. Refused. Twenty pounds? Refused also. Forty pounds? Still refused. Passepartout jumped at each advance; but the Indian declined to be tempted.

persisted - nie ustawać, upierać się, utrzymywać

offering - (offer) proponować, oferować; oferta; oferując

excessive - nadmierne; nadmierny, wygórowany

loan - pożyczka; pożyczyć

Yet the offer was an alluring one, for, supposing it took the elephant fifteen hours to reach Allahabad, his owner would receive no less than six hundred pounds sterling.

alluring - uwodzicielski; kusić, uwodzić, wabić; wdzięk, pokusa

receive - dostać, otrzymać

Phileas Fogg, without getting in the least flurried, then proposed to purchase the animal outright, and at first offered a thousand pounds for him. The Indian, perhaps thinking he was going to make a great bargain, still refused.

outright - wprost; bezwarunkowo; bezwarunkowy

bargain - okazja

Sir Francis Cromarty took Mr. Fogg aside, and begged him to reflect before he went any further. Mr. Fogg replied that he was not in the habit of acting rashly, that a bet of twenty thousand pounds was at stake, that the elephant was absolutely necessary to him, and that he would secure him if he had to pay twenty times his value.

aside - na bok

begged - błagał; błagać, prosić, żebrać

reflect - odzwierciedlać; odbijać, odbić, odbijać się, odbić się

rashly - lekkomyślnie

secure - bezpieczny

Returning to the Indian, whose small, sharp eyes, glistening with avarice, betrayed that with him it was only a question of how great a price he could obtain. Mr. Fogg offered first twelve hundred, then fifteen hundred, eighteen hundred, two thousand pounds. Passepartout, usually so ruddy, was fairly white with suspense.

sharp eyes - bystre oczy

glistening - lśniące; błyszczeć

avarice - chciwość

ruddy - rumiany, czerwonawy, cholerny

suspense - niepewność, napięcie

At two thousand pounds the Indian yielded.

"What a price, Good heavens!" cried Passepartout, "for an elephant!"

Good heavens - Wielkie nieba!

It only remained now to find a guide, which was comparatively easy. A young Parsee, with an intelligent face, offered his services, which Mr. Fogg accepted, promising so generous a reward as to materially stimulate his zeal. The elephant was led out and equipped.

The Parsee, who was an accomplished elephant driver, covered his back with a sort of saddle-cloth, and attached to each of his flanks some curiously uncomfortable howdahs.

Phileas Fogg paid the Indian with some banknotes which he extracted from the famous carpetbag, a proceeding that seemed to deprive poor Passepartout of his vitals. Then he offered to carry Sir Francis to Allahabad, which the brigadier gratefully accepted, as one traveler the more would not be likely to fatigue the gigantic beast. Provisions were purchased at Kholby, and, while Sir Francis and Mr.

deprive - pozbawić, pozbawiać

vitals - funkcje życiowe; życiowy, witalny, niezbędny do życie

Fogg took the howdahs on either side, Passepartout got astride the saddle-cloth between them. The Parsee perched himself on the elephant's neck, and at nine o'clock they set out from the village, the animal marching off through the dense forest of palms by the shortest cut.

astride - okrakiem, w rozkroku

perched - grzęznąć; umieścić, usiąść, przysiąść; schronienie, okoń

Chapter 12. In Which Phileas Fogg and His Companions Venture across the Indian Forests, and What Follows

Companions - towarzysze; towarzysz, towarzyszka, kompan, kompanka, wspólnik

In order to shorten the journey, the guide passed to the left of the line where the railway was still in process of being built. This line, owing to the capricious turnings of the Vindhia Mountains, did not pursue a straight course. The Parsee, who was quite familiar with the roads and paths in the district, declared that they would gain twenty miles by striking directly through the forest.

Phileas Fogg and Sir Francis Cromarty, plunged to the neck in the peculiar howdahs provided for them, were horribly jostled by the swift trotting of the elephant, spurred on as he was by the skillful Parsee. But they endured the discomfort with true British phlegm, talking little, and scarcely able to catch a glimpse of each other.

As for Passepartout, who was mounted on the beast's back, and received the direct force of each concussion as he walked along, he was very careful, in accordance with his master's advice, to keep his tongue from between his teeth, as it would otherwise have been bitten off short.

concussion - wstrząs; wstrząśnienie mózgu, wstrząs mózgu

careful - ostrożny; drobiazgowy

accordance - zgodność

tongue - język, ozór

bitten off - odgryźć

The worthy fellow bounced from the elephant's neck to his rump, and vaulted like a clown on a spring-board; yet he laughed in the midst of his bouncing, and from time to time took a piece of sugar out of his pocket, and inserted it in Kiouni's trunk, who received it without in the least slackening his regular trot.

After two hours the guide stopped the elephant, and gave him an hour for rest, during which Kiouni, after quenching his thirst at a neighboring spring, set to devouring the branches and shrubs round about him. Neither Sir Francis nor Mr. Fogg regretted the delay, and both descended with a feeling of relief. "Why, he's made of iron!" exclaimed the general, gazing admiringly on Kiouni.

At noon the Parsee gave the signal of departure. The country soon presented a very savage aspect. Copses of dates and dwarf-palms succeeded the dense forests; then vast, dry plains, dotted with scanty shrubs, and sown with great blocks of syenite.

All this portion of Bundelcund, which is little frequented by travelers, is inhabited by a fanatical population, hardened in the most horrible practices of the Hindoo faith.

The travelers several times saw bands of ferocious Indians, who, when they perceived the elephant striding across-country, made angry and threatening motions. The Parsee avoided them as much as possible. Few animals were observed on the route. Even the monkeys hurried from their path with contortions and grimaces which convulsed Passepartout with laughter.

In the midst of his gaiety, however, one thought troubled the worthy servant. What would Mr. Fogg do with the elephant when he got to Allahabad? Would he carry him on with him? Impossible! The cost of transporting him would make him ruinously expensive. Would he sell him, or set him free? The estimable beast certainly deserved some consideration. Should Mr.

ruinously - rujnująco

estimable - możliwe do oszacowania; godny szacunku

deserved - zasłużony; zasługiwać, zasłużyć

thoughts - myśli; myśl, myśl, pomysł

worrying - niepokojące; (worry) martwić się, prześladować

The principal chain of the Vindhias was crossed by eight in the evening, and another halt was made on the northern slope, in a ruined bungalow. They had gone nearly twenty-five miles that day, and an equal distance still separated them from the station of Allahabad.

bungalow - domek, domek parterowy

The night was cold. The Parsee lit a fire in the bungalow with a few dry branches, and the warmth was much appreciated. Provisions purchased at Kholby sufficed for supper, and the travelers ate ravenously. The conversation, beginning with a few disconnected phrases, soon gave place to loud and steady snores.

ravenously - drapieżnie

disconnected - odłączyć, wyłączyć, rozłączyć, odczepić

steady - podtrzymać, podpierać; stały, zrównoważony, opanowany

The guide watched Kiouni, who slept standing, bolstering himself against the trunk of a large tree.

Sir Francis slept heavily, like an honest soldier overcome with fatigue. Passepartout was wrapped in uneasy dreams of the bouncing of the day before. As for Mr. Fogg, he slumbered as peacefully as if he had been in his serene mansion in Saville Row.

The journey was resumed at six in the morning. The guide hoped to reach Allahabad by evening. In that case, Mr. Fogg would only lose a part of the forty-eight hours saved since the beginning of the tour. Kiouni, resuming his rapid gait, soon descended the lower spurs of the Vindhias, and towards noon they passed by the village of Kallenger, on the Cani, one of the branches of the Ganges.

The guide avoided inhabited places, thinking it safer to keep the open country, which lies along the first depressions of the basin of the great river. Allahabad was now only twelve miles to the northeast They stopped under a clump of bananas, the fruit of which, as healthy as bread and as succulent as cream, was eaten and appreciated.

At two o'clock the guide entered a thick forest which extended several miles. He preferred to travel under cover of the woods. They had not as yet had any unpleasant encounters, and the journey seemed on the point of being successfully accomplished, when the elephant, becoming restless, suddenly stopped.

woods - lasy; drewno, las

unpleasant - nieprzyjemne; nieprzyjemny

It was then four o'clock.

confused - zdezorientowany; zmieszać, pomylić

murmur - pomruk, mruczenie, szmer

The murmur soon became more distinct. It now seemed like a distant concert of human voices accompanied by brass instruments. Passepartout was all eyes and ears. Mr. Fogg patiently waited without a word. The Parsee jumped to the ground, fastened the elephant to a tree, and plunged into the thicket. He soon returned, saying: "A procession of Brahmins is coming this way.

if possible - jeśli to możliwe

The guide unloosed the elephant and led him into a thicket, at the same time asking the travelers not to stir. He held himself ready to bestride the animal at a moment's notice, should flight become necessary; but he evidently thought that the procession of the faithful would pass without perceiving them amid the thick foliage, in which they were wholly concealed.

The discordant tones of the voices and instruments drew nearer, and now droning songs mingled with the sound of the tambourines and cymbals.

First came the priests, with mitres on their heads, and clothed in long lace robes. They were surrounded by men, women and children, who sang a kind of lugubrious psalm, interrupted at regular intervals by the tambourines and cymbals; while behind them was drawn a car with large wheels, the spokes of which represented serpents entwined with each other.

Upon the car, which was drawn by four richly caparisoned zebus, stood a hideous statue with four arms, the body colored a dull red, with haggard eyes, dishevelled hair, protruding tongue, and lips tinted with betel. It stood upright upon the figure of a prostrate and headless giant.

hag - szmata; czarownica, wiedźma

The Parsee made a motion to keep silent.

A group of old fakirs were capering and making a wild ado round the statue. They were striped with ochre, and covered with cuts whence their blood issued drop by drop"stupid fanatics, who, in the great Indian ceremonies, still throw themselves under the wheels of Juggernaut. Some Brahmins, clad in all the sumptuousness of Oriental apparel, and leading a woman who faltered at every step, followed.

This woman was young, and as fair as an European. Her head and neck, shoulders, ears, arms, hands and toes were loaded down with jewels and gems"with bracelets, earrings and rings; while a tunic bordered with gold, and covered with a light muslin robe, betrayed the outline of her form.

The guards who followed the young woman presented a violent contrast to her, armed as they were with naked sabres hung at their waists, and long damascened pistols, and bearing a corpse on a palanquin.

It was the body of an old man, gorgeously arrayed in the dress of a rajah, wearing, as in life, a turban embroidered with pearls, a robe of tissue of silk and gold, a scarf of cashmere sewed with diamonds and the magnificent weapons of a Hindoo prince. Next came the musicians and a rearguard of capering fakirs, whose cries sometimes drowned the noise of the instruments.

These closed the procession.

Sir Francis watched the procession with a sad countenance, and, turning to the guide, said, "A suttee."

suttee - sati

The Parsee nodded, and put his finger to his lips. The procession slowly wound under the trees, and soon its last ranks disappeared in the depths of the wood. The songs gradually died away. Occasionally cries were heard in the distance, until at last all was silence again.

finger - obmacywać; palec

Phileas Fogg had heard what Sir Francis said, and, as soon as the procession had disappeared, asked: "What is a suttee?"

"A suttee," returned the general, "is a human sacrifice, but a voluntary one. The woman you have just seen will be burned tomorrow at the dawn of day."

human sacrifice - ofiary z ludzi (praktyki religijne) 

voluntary - dobrowolnie; dobrowolny

"Oh, the scoundrels!" cried Passepartout, who could not repress his indignation.

repress - represjonować; poskramiać, stłumić

indignation - oburzenie

"And the corpse?" asked Mr. Fogg.

"Is that of the prince, her husband," said the guide. "An independent rajah of Bundelcund."

"Is it possible," resumed Phileas Fogg, his voice betraying not the least emotion, "that these barbarous customs still exist in India, and that the English have been unable to put a stop to them?"

betraying - zdradzając; wydać, zdradzić, zdradzić

emotion - emocje; emocja

barbarous - barbarzyński

"These sacrifices do not occur in the larger portion of India," replied Sir Francis; "but we have no power over these savage territories, and especially here in Bundelcund. The whole district north of the Vindhias is the theatre of incessant murders and pillage."

power - władza, moc, możność, mocarstwo, potęga, siła, zasilanie

"The poor wretch!" exclaimed Passepartout. "To be burned alive!"

wretch - nieszczęśnik, nikczemnik

alive - żywy, żywcem

"Yes," returned Sir Francis, "burned alive. And, if she were not, you cannot conceive what treatment she would be obliged to submit to from her relatives. They would shave off her hair, feed her on a scanty allowance of rice, treat her with contempt. She would be looked upon as an unclean creature, and would die in some corner, like a scurvy dog.

conceive - wyobrażać sobie, stworzyć

treatment - traktowanie; leczenie

allowance - zasiłek; kieszonkowe

contempt - pogardę; pogarda, lekceważenie, obraza

unclean - nieczysty

creature - istota, stworzenie, stwór

scurvy - szkorbut

The prospect of so frightful an existence drives these poor creatures to the sacrifice much more than love or religious fanaticism. Sometimes, however, the sacrifice is really voluntary, and it requires the active interference of the Government to prevent it.

prospect - perspektywa; poszukiwać

frightful - przerażające; okropny, straszny

creatures - stworzenia; istota, stworzenie

fanaticism - fanatyzm

requires - zażądać, wymagać, życzyć sobie

Several years ago, when I was living at Bombay, a young widow asked permission of the governor to be burned along with her husband's body; but, as you may imagine, he refused. The woman left the town, took refuge with an independent rajah, and there carried out her self-devoted purpose."

widow - wdowa; bękart

permission - pozwolenie, dozwolenie, zezwolenie

refuge - schronienie, schronisko, azyl, przytułek, schronienie

devoted - poświęcone

While Sir Francis was speaking, the guide shook his head several times, and now said: "The sacrifice which will take place tomorrow at dawn is not a voluntary one."

"How do you know?"

"Everybody knows about this affair in Bundelcund."

"But the wretched creature did not seem to be making any resistance," observed Sir Francis.

resistance - opór, sprzeciw, rezystancja, oporność, ruch oporu

"That was because they had intoxicated her with fumes of hemp and opium."

intoxicated - odurzony; otępić, odurzyć

fumes - opary; opar

hemp - konopie

"But where are they taking her?"

"To the pagoda of Pillaji, two miles from here. She will pass the night there."

pass the night - zanocować, spędzić noc

"And the sacrifice will take place""

"Tomorrow, at the first light of dawn."

The guide now led the elephant out of the thicket, and leaped upon his neck. Just at the moment that he was about to urge Kiouni forward with a peculiar whistle, Mr. Fogg stopped him, and, turning to Sir Francis Cromarty, said, "Suppose we save this woman."

leaped - skoczył; skoczyć, przeskoczyć, skakać; skok

urge - zalecać, nakłaniać; pragnienie, popęd

save - ratować, uratować, zbawić, zapisywać, zapisać, oszczędzać

"Save the woman, Mr. Fogg!"

"I have yet twelve hours to spare. I can devote them to that."

devote - poświęcać, poświęcić, angażować, zaangażować

"Why, you are a man of heart!"

"Sometimes," replied Phileas Fogg, quietly, "when I have the time."

Chapter 13. In Which Passepartout Receives a New Proof That Fortune Favors the Brave

Receives - otrzymuje; dostać, otrzymać

Proof - dowód; garować

Favors - przysługi; przysługa, faworyzować

Brave - odważny, chrobry, dzielny

The project was a bold one, full of difficulty, perhaps impracticable. Mr. Fogg was going to risk life, or at least liberty, and therefore the success of his tour. But he did not hesitate, and he found in Sir Francis Cromarty an enthusiastic ally.

impracticable - niewykonalne

liberty - wolność, swoboda

hesitate - wahać się; jąkać się

ally - sprzymierzeńcem; połączyć, sprzymierzyć; sprzymierzeniec

As for Passepartout, he was ready for anything that might be proposed. His master's idea charmed him. He perceived a heart, a soul, under that icy exterior. He began to love Phileas Fogg.

soul - dusza

icy - lodowaty, lodowy

There remained the guide. What course would he adopt? Would he not take part with the Indians? In default of his assistance, it was necessary to be assured of his neutrality. Sir Francis frankly put the question to him.

adopt - adoptować, zaadoptować, przysposabiać, przysposobić

default - domyślny; wartość domyślna; zalegać, zalec

assistance - pomoc

be assured of - być pewnym czegoś

frankly - szczerze, bez ogródek

"Officer," replied the guide, "I am a Parsee, and this woman is a

Parsee. Command me as you will."

Command - rozkaz, komenda, polecenie

"Excellent!" said Mr. Fogg.

"However," resumed the guide, "it is certain, not only that we shall risk our lives, but horrible tortures, if we are taken."

tortures - tortury; tortura, q

"That is foreseen," replied Mr. Fogg. "I think we must wait till night before acting."

"I think so," said the guide. The worthy Indian then gave some account of the victim, who, he said, was a celebrated beauty of the Parsee race, and the daughter of a wealthy Bombay merchant. She had received a thoroughly English education in that city, and, from her manners and intelligence, would be thought an European. Her name was Aouda.

beauty - piękno, uroda, piękność, krasawica

wealthy - bogaty, zamożny

thoroughly - dokładnie; doszczętnie, gruntownie

education - edukacja, oświata, kształcenie, wykształcenie

intelligence - inteligencja, intelekt, rozum, wywiad

Left an orphan, she was married against her will to the old rajah of Bundelcund; and, knowing the fate that awaited her, she escaped, was retaken, and devoted by the rajah's relatives, who had an interest in her death, to the sacrifice from which it seemed she could not escape.

orphan - sierota, sierotka

retaken - odzyskane; odzyskiwać, odzyskać

escape - wydostawać się, wydostać się, unikać, uniknąć, ucieczka

The Parsee's narrative only confirmed Mr. Fogg and his companions in their generous design. It was decided that the guide should direct the elephant towards the pagoda of Pillaji, which he accordingly approached as quickly as possible. They halted, half an hour afterwards, in a copse, some five hundred feet from the pagoda, where they were well concealed.

narrative - narracja; relacja

halted - zatrzymany; przerywać, kończyć, zatrzymać się; postój

copse - zagajnik

But they could hear the groans and cries of the fakirs distinctly.

groans - jęki; jęk, jęczeć

They then discussed the means of rescuing the victim. The guide was familiar with the pagoda of Pillaji, in which, as he declared, the young woman was imprisoned. Could they enter any of its doors while the whole party of Indians was plunged in a drunken sleep, or was it safer to attempt to make a hole in the walls? This could only be determined at the moment and the place.

rescuing - ratowanie; ratować, uratować, ocalić, ratunek

imprisoned - uwięziony; uwięzić

hole - dziura, szpara

drunken - pijany, zapijaczony

be determined - zostać ustalony; określony; zdeterminowany; wyznaczony; decydowany; to be determined {do ustalenia}

But it was certain that the abduction must be made that night, and not when, at break of day, the victim was led to her funeral pyre. Then no human intervention could save her.

abduction - uprowadzenie, porwanie, abdukcja

funeral - pogrzeb, pogrzebanie

pyre - stos pogrzebowy

intervention - interwencja

As soon as night fell, about six o'clock, they decided to make a reconnaissance around the pagoda. The cries of the fakirs were just ceasing. The Indians were in the act of plunging themselves into the drunkenness caused by liquid opium mingled with hemp, and it might be possible to slip between them to the temple itself.

reconnaissance - rekonesans, zwiad

ceasing - (cease) przestać, ustać, zaprzestać; przerwanie, zaprzestanie

plunging - zanurzenie; (plunge) rzucać się, wpaść

drunkenness - pijaństwo

caused - spowodowane; przyczyna, powodować, spowodować

liquid - ciecz; ciekły, płynny

itself - się; ono samo

The Parsee, leading the others, noiselessly crept through the wood, and in ten minutes they found themselves on the banks of a small stream, whence, by the light of the rosin torches, they perceived a pyre of wood, on the top of which lay the embalmed body of the rajah, which was to be burned with his wife.

noiselessly - bezszelestnie; bezgłośnie, bezszmerowo, bezszumnie

crept - pełznąć, skradać się, wkradać się, przypełznąć; czubek, głupek

stream - strumień, potok, rzeczka, ciek

rosin - kalafonia

torches - pochodnie; pochodnia, żagiew, łuczywo

embalmed - zabalsamowany; balsamować, zabalsamować

The pagoda, whose minarets loomed above the trees in the deepening dusk, stood a hundred steps away.

deepening - pogłębienie; pogłębiać, pogłębić

dusk - zmierzch

"Come!" whispered the guide.

He slipped more cautiously than ever through the brush, followed by his companions. The silence around was only broken by the low murmuring of the wind among the branches.

brush - szczotka, pędzel, czesanie, szczotkowanie, kita, szczotkować

murmuring - (murmur) wyszeptać, mruczeć; szeptanie, szemranie

Soon the Parsee stopped on the borders of the glade, which was lit up by the torches. The ground was covered by groups of the Indians, motionless in their drunken sleep. It seemed a battlefield strewn with the dead. Men, women and children lay together.

battlefield - pole bitwy, pobojowisko

strewn - porozrzucane; (strew) rozrzucić, rozsypać, usiać; zasypany

dead - martwy, zmarły, nieżywy, zmartwiały, nieruchomy, rozładowany

In the background, among the trees, the pagoda of Pillaji loomed distinctly. Much to the guide's disappointment, the guards of the rajah, lighted by torches, were watching at the doors and marching to and fro with naked sabres. Probably the priests, too, were watching within.

background - pochodzenie, tło, kontrast

disappointment - rozczarowanie, zawód

The Parsee, now convinced that it was impossible to force an entrance to the temple, advanced no farther, but led his companions back again. Phileas Fogg and Sir Francis Cromarty also saw that nothing could be attempted in that direction. They stopped, and engaged in a whispered colloquy.

entrance - wejście

attempted - próbowano; próbować, spróbować, próba, podejście, zamach

colloquy - konwersacja, rozmowa

"It is only eight now," said the brigadier, "and these guards may also go to sleep."

"It is not impossible," returned the Parsee.

They lay down at the foot of a tree, and waited.

The time seemed long. The guide ever and anon left them to take an observation on the edge of the wood, but the guards watched steadily by the glare of the torches, and a dim light crept through the windows of the pagoda.

anon - niebawem, wkrótce

edge - krawędź, skraj, rąbek, obrzeże

glare - blask

dim light - blade; przyciemnione światło

They waited till midnight; but no change took place among the guards, and it became apparent that their yielding to sleep could not be counted on. The other plan must be carried out. An opening in the walls of the pagoda must be made. It remained to ascertain whether the priests were watching by the side of their victim as assiduously as were the soldiers at the door.

apparent - widoczne; widoczny; oczywisty; pozorny

yielding - plonowanie; (yield) ustąpić, poddać się, dawać; ustępliwy

ascertain - niepewność; ustalać, ustalić

assiduously - wytrwale

soldiers - żołnierze; żołnierz, wojak, woj

After a last consultation, the guide announced that he was ready for the attempt, and advanced, followed by the others. They took a roundabout way, so as to get at the pagoda on the rear. They reached the walls about half-past twelve, without having met anyone; here there was no guard, nor were there either windows or doors.

consultation - konsultacje; konsultacja

rear - wychować, stanąć na tylnych nogach, wnosić; tył; tylny

guard - strażnik; jelec; osłona; chronić

The night was dark. The moon, on the wane, scarcely left the horizon, and was covered with heavy clouds. The height of the trees deepened the darkness.

moon - Księżyc

wane - słabnąć, zanikać, zmniejszać, blednąć; zanik

clouds - przyćmić; chmura, zachmurzenie

height - wysokość; wzrost

deepened - pogłębiony; pogłębiać, pogłębić

It was not enough to reach the walls; an opening in them must be accomplished, and to attain this purpose the party only had their pocket-knives. Happily the temple walls were built of brick and wood, which could be penetrated with little difficulty; after one brick had been taken out, the rest would yield easily.

attain - co; osiągać, osiągnąć

knives - noże; nóż, nóż, nóż

brick - cegła; ceglany

yield - wydajność; ustąpić, poddać się, dawać, przynosić; produkcja

They set noiselessly to work, and the Parsee on one side and Passepartout on the other began to loosen the bricks so as to make an aperture two feet wide. They were getting on rapidly, when suddenly a cry was heard in the interior of the temple, followed almost instantly by other cries replying from the outside. Passepartout and the guide stopped. Had they been heard? Was the alarm being given?

loosen - poluzować

bricks - cegły; cegła, cegła, ceglany

aperture - otwór, szpara, szczelina, przesłona, przysłona

alarm - alarm; budzik; alarmować, zaalarmować

Common prudence urged them to retire, and they did so, followed by Phileas Fogg and Sir Francis. They again hid themselves in the wood, and waited till the disturbance, whatever it might be, ceased, holding themselves ready to resume their attempt without delay.

prudence - ostrożność; roztropność, przezorność

hid - ukryty; (hide) chować, ukrywać

disturbance - zaburzenia, niepokojenie, niepokój

holding - trzymanie; (hold) utrzymać, trzymać, odbywać; dzierżawa

But, awkwardly enough, the guards now appeared at the rear of the temple, and there installed themselves, in readiness to prevent a surprise.

awkwardly - niezgrabnie, z trudnością

installed - zainstalowany; instalować, zainstalować

readiness - gotowość

It would be difficult to describe the disappointment of the party, thus interrupted in their work. They could not now reach the victim; how, then, could they save her? Sir Francis shook his fists, Passepartout was beside himself, and the guide gnashed his teeth with rage. The tranquil Fogg waited, without betraying any emotion.

beside - obok, przy, poza

gnashed - zgrzytnął; zgrzytać

rage - wściekłość, szał, amok

"We have nothing to do but to go away," whispered Sir Francis.

"Nothing but to go away," echoed the guide.

echoed - echo

"Stop," said Fogg. "I am only due at Allahabad tomorrow before noon."

"But what can you hope to do?" asked Sir Francis. "In a few hours it will be daylight, and""

daylight - światło dzienne

"The chance which now seems lost may present itself at the last moment."

Sir Francis would have liked to read Phileas Fogg's eyes. What was this cool Englishman thinking of? Was he planning to make a rush for the young woman at the very moment of the sacrifice, and boldly snatch her from her executioners? This would be utter folly, and it was hard to admit that Fogg was such a fool. Sir Francis consented, however, to remain to the end of this terrible drama.

rush - pędzić, gonić, biec, pośpieszać, ponaglać; pośpiech, napływ

snatch - wyrwać; rwanie

executioners - kaci; kat, oprawca

The guide led them to the rear of the glade, where they were able to observe the sleeping groups.

Meanwhile Passepartout, who had perched himself on the lower branches of a tree, was resolving an idea which had at first struck him like a flash, and which was now firmly lodged in his brain.

flash - migać, błyskać, przemykać; błysk

He had commenced by saying to himself, "What folly!" and then he repeated, "Why not, after all? It's a chance"perhaps the only one; and with such sots!" Thinking thus, he slipped, with the suppleness of a serpent, to the lowest branches, the ends of which bent almost to the ground.

The hours passed, and the lighter shades now announced the approach of day, though it was not yet light. This was the moment. The slumbering multitude became animated, the tambourines sounded, songs and cries arose; the hour of the sacrifice had come. The doors of the pagoda swung open, and a bright light escaped from its interior, in the midst of which Mr. Fogg and Sir Francis saw the victim.

She seemed, having shaken off the stupor of intoxication, to be striving to escape from her executioner. Sir Francis's heart throbbed; and, convulsively seizing Mr. Fogg's hand, found in it an open knife. Just at this moment the crowd began to move.

The young woman had again fallen into a stupor caused by the fumes of hemp, and passed among the fakirs, who escorted her with their wild, religious cries.

escorted - eskortowany; eskorta, konwój, świta, eskorta

Phileas Fogg and his companions, mingling in the rear ranks of the crowd, followed; and in two minutes they reached the banks of the stream, and stopped fifty paces from the pyre, upon which still lay the rajah's corpse. In the semi-obscurity they saw the victim, quite senseless, stretched out beside her husband's body.

semi - pół

obscurity - niejasność; mrok, ciemność

senseless - bezsensowny, nieprzytomny, bez czucia

Then a torch was brought, and the wood, heavily soaked with oil, instantly took fire.

soaked - przemoczony; przesiąknąć

oil - olej

At this moment Sir Francis and the guide seized Phileas Fogg, who, in an instant of mad generosity, was about to rush upon the pyre. But he had quickly pushed them aside, when the whole scene suddenly changed. A cry of terror arose. The whole multitude prostrated themselves, terror-stricken, on the ground.

The old rajah was not dead, then, since he rose of a sudden, like a spectre, took up his wife in his arms, and descended from the pyre in the midst of the clouds of smoke, which only heightened his ghostly appearance.

clouds of smoke - chmury dymu

prodigy - wyjątkowy talent, geniusz, cud

The inanimate victim was borne along by the vigorous arms which supported her, and which she did not seem in the least to burden. Mr. Fogg and Sir Francis stood erect, the Parsee bowed his head, and Passepartout was, no doubt, scarcely less stupefied.

inanimate - nieożywiony, niemrawy

The resuscitated rajah approached Sir Francis and Mr. Fogg, and, in an abrupt tone, said, "Let us be off!"

be off - być zepsutym {jedzenie}; być nieobecnym w pracy; wyjść, odejść

It was Passepartout himself, who had slipped upon the pyre in the midst of the smoke and, profiting by the still over-hanging darkness, had delivered the young woman from death! It was Passepartout who, playing his part with a happy audacity, had passed through the crowd amid the general terror.

A moment after all four of the party had disappeared in the woods, and the elephant was bearing them away at a rapid pace. But the cries and noise, and a ball which whizzed through Phileas Fogg's hat, told them that the trick had been discovered.

pace - przemierzać; tempo, szybkość, krok

whizzed - brzęczeć, świst, świszczeć

trick - trik, sposób, sztuczka, chwyt

The old rajah's body, indeed, now appeared upon the burning pyre; and the priests, recovered from their terror, perceived that an abduction had taken place. They hastened into the forest, followed by the soldiers, who fired a volley after the fugitives; but the latter rapidly increased the distance between them, and ere long found themselves beyond the reach of the bullets and arrows.

The rash exploit had been accomplished; and for an hour Passepartout laughed gaily at his success. Sir Francis pressed the worthy fellow's hand, and his master said, "Well done!" which, from him, was high commendation; to which Passepartout replied that all the credit of the affair belonged to Mr. Fogg.

exploit - wyczyn; exploit; wykorzystywać, wyzyskiwać

gaily - łatwo; wesoło, wystawnie

pressed - wciśnięty; (pre) przed

commendation - pochwała; rekomendacja

As for him, he had only been struck with a "queer" idea; and he laughed to think that for a few moments he, Passepartout, the ex-gymnast, ex-sergeant fireman, had been the spouse of a charming woman, a venerable, embalmed rajah! As for the young Indian woman, she had been unconscious throughout of what was passing, and now, wrapped up in a traveling blanket, was reposing in one of the howdahs.

The elephant, thanks to the skillful guidance of the Parsee, was advancing rapidly through the still darksome forest, and, an hour after leaving the pagoda, had crossed a vast plain.

They made a halt at seven o'clock, the young woman being still in a state of complete prostration. The guide made her drink a little brandy and water, but the drowsiness which stupefied her could not yet be shaken off. Sir Francis, who was familiar with the effects of the intoxication produced by the fumes of hemp, reassured his companions on her account.

But he was more disturbed at the prospect of her future fate. He told Phileas Fogg that, should Aouda remain in India, she would inevitably fall again into the hands of her executioners. These fanatics were scattered throughout the country, and would, despite the English police, recover their victim at Madras, Bombay, or Calcutta. She would only be safe by quitting India forever.

Phileas Fogg replied that he would reflect upon the matter.

The station at Allahabad was reached about ten o'clock, and, the interrupted line of railway being resumed, would enable them to reach Calcutta in less than twenty-four hours. Phileas Fogg would thus be able to arrive in time to take the steamer which left Calcutta the next day, October 25th, at noon, for Hong Kong.

enable - włączyć; uzdolnić, upełnomocnić, umożliwiać, umożliwić

The young woman was placed in one of the waiting-rooms of the station, while Passepartout was charged with purchasing for her various articles of toilet, a dress, shawl and some furs; for which his master gave him unlimited credit. Passepartout started off forthwith, and found himself in the streets of Allahabad, that is, the City of God.

furs - futra; futro, futerko; futrzany

unlimited - nieograniczony

forthwith - bezzwłocznie

God - bóg

One of the most venerated in India, it was built at the junction of the two sacred rivers, Ganges and Jumna, the waters of which attract pilgrims from every part of the peninsula.

Passepartout made it a point, as he made his purchases, to take a good look at the city. It was formerly defended by a noble fort, which has since become a state prison. Its commerce has dwindled away, and Passepartout in vain looked about him for such a bazaar as he used to frequent in Regent Street.

The influence to which the priests of Pillaji had subjected Aouda began gradually to yield, and she became more herself, so that her fine eyes resumed all their soft Indian expression.

When the poet-king, Ucaf Uddaul, celebrates the charms of the queen of Ahmehnagara, he speaks thus: "Her shining tresses, divided in two parts, encircle the harmonious contour of her white and delicate cheeks, brilliant in their glow and freshness.

Her ebony brows have the form and charm of the bow of Kama, the god of love, and beneath her long silken lashes the purest reflections and a celestial light swim, as in the sacred lakes of Himalaya, in the black pupils of her great clear eyes.

Her narrow and supple waist, which a hand may clasp around, sets forth the outline of her rounded figure and the beauty of her bosom, where youth in its flower displays the wealth of its treasures; and beneath the silken folds of her tunic she seems to have been modeled in pure silver by the godlike hand of Vicvarcarma, the immortal sculptor."

It is enough to say, without applying this poetical rhapsody to Aouda, that she was a charming woman, in all the European acceptance of the phrase. She spoke English with great purity, and the guide had not exaggerated in saying that the young Parsee had been transformed by her bringing up.

The train was about to start from Allahabad, and Mr. Fogg proceeded to pay the guide the price agreed upon for his service, and not a farthing more. This astonished Passepartout, who remembered all that his master owed to the guide's devotion.

owed - należne; być zobowiązany, zawdzięczać, mieć dług, być winnym

He had, indeed, risked his life in the adventure at Pillaji, and, if he should be caught afterwards by the Indians, he would with difficulty escape their vengeance. Kiouni, also, must be disposed of. What should be done with the elephant, which had been so dearly purchased? Phileas Fogg had already determined this question.

risked - zaryzykował; ryzyko

be caught - zostać złapanym

vengeance - odwet, pomsta, zemsta

disposed of - zostać; być pozbytym, rozprawionym, rozmieszczonym w uporządkowany sposób

"Parsee," he said to the guide, "you have been serviceable and devoted. I have paid for your service, but not for your devotion. Would you like to have this elephant? He is yours."

The guide's eyes glistened.

glistened - błyszczały; błyszczeć

"Your honor is giving me a fortune!" he cried.

A fortune - fortuna; majątek

"Take him, guide," returned Mr. Fogg, "and I shall still be your debtor."

debtor - dłużnik, dłużniczka

"Good!" exclaimed Passepartout. "Take him, friend. Kiouni is a brave and faithful beast." And, going up to the elephant, he gave him several lumps of sugar, saying, "Here, Kiouni, here, here."

lumps - bryła, grudka

The elephant grunted out his satisfaction, and, clasping Passepartout around the waist with his trunk, lifted him as high as his head. Passepartout, not in the least alarmed, caressed the animal, which replaced him gently on the ground.

installed - zainstalowany; zainstalować; zamontować

During the journey, the young woman fully recovered her senses. What was her astonishment to find herself in this carriage, on the railway, dressed in European clothes, and with travelers who were quite strangers to her!

senses - zmysły

Her companions first set about fully reviving her with a little liquor, and then Sir Francis narrated to her what had passed, dwelling upon the courage with which Phileas Fogg had not hesitated to risk his life to save her, and recounting the happy sequel of the venture, the result of Passepartout's rash idea.

Fogg said nothing; while Passepartout, abashed, kept repeating that "it wasn't worth telling."

wasn - było

Aouda pathetically thanked her deliverers, rather with tears than words. Her fine eyes interpreted her gratitude better than her lips. Then, as her thoughts strayed back to the scene of the sacrifice, and recalled the dangers which still menaced her, she shuddered with terror.

escort - eskorta, konwój, świta

She had, it seems, a Parsee relation, who was one of the principal merchants of Hong Kong, which is wholly an English city, though on an island on the Chinese coast.

Chinese - chiński; Chińczyk

At half-past twelve the train stopped at Benares. The Brahmin legends assert that this city is built on the site of the ancient Casi, which, like Mahomet's tomb, was once suspended between heaven and earth. But the Benares of today, which the Orientalists call the Athens of India, stands quite unpoetically on solid earth.

gallant - galant, dandys; szarmancki, rycerski

The railway, on leaving Benares, passed for a while along the valley of the Ganges.

Elephants were bathing in the waters of the sacred river, and groups of Indians, despite the advanced season and chilly air, were performing solemnly their pious ablutions. These were fervent Brahmins, the bitterest foes of Buddhism, their deities being Vishnu, the solar god, Shiva, the divine impersonation of natural forces and Brahma, the supreme ruler of priests and legislators.

The travelers could scarcely discern the fort of Chupenie, twenty miles southwestward from Benares, the ancient stronghold of the rajahs of Behar; or Ghazipur and its famous rose-waterfactories; or the tomb of Lord Cornwallis, rising on the left bank of the Ganges; the fortified town of Buxar, or Patna, a large manufacturing and trading-place, where is held the principal opium market of India; or Monghir, a more than European town, for it is as English as Manchester or Birmingham, with its iron foundries, edge-tool factories and high chimneys puffing clouds of black smoke heavenward.

Night came on. The train passed on at full speed, in the midst of the roaring of the tigers, bears and wolves which fled before the locomotive. The marvels of Bengal, Golconda, ruined Gour, Murshedabad, the ancient capital, Burdwan, Hugly and the French town of Chandernagor, where Passepartout would have been proud to see his country's flag flying, were hidden from their view in the darkness.

Calcutta was reached at seven in the morning, and the packet left for Hong Kong at noon; so that Phileas Fogg had five hours before him.

packet - paczka; pakiet

According to his journal, he was due at Calcutta on the 25th of October, and that was the exact date of his actual arrival. He was therefore neither behind nor ahead of time. The two days gained between London and Bombay had been lost, as has been seen, in the journey across India. But it is not to be supposed that Phileas Fogg regretted them.

journal - czasopismo, gazeta, dziennik

ahead - przed nami; z przodu

Chapter 15. In Which the Bag of Banknotes Disgorges Some Thousands of Pounds More

Disgorges - wymiotować, wypluć, zwracać, zwymiotować

The train entered the station. Passepartout jumped out first, followed by Mr. Fogg, who assisted his fair companion to descend. Phileas Fogg intended to proceed at once to the Hong Kong steamer, in order to get Aouda comfortably settled for the voyage. He was unwilling to leave her while they were still on dangerous ground.

jumped out - wyskoczyć

descend - schodzić, zejść, zniżać

proceed - kontynuować, iść dalej, podążać

unwilling - niechętny

Just as he was leaving the station a policeman came up to him, and said, "Mr. Phileas Fogg?"

"I am he."

"Is this man your servant?" added the policeman, pointing to



"Be so good, both of you, as to follow me."

Mr. Fogg betrayed no surprise whatever. The policeman was a representative of the law, and law is sacred to an Englishman. Passepartout tried to reason about the matter, but the policeman tapped him with his stick, and Mr. Fogg made him a signal to obey.

representative - reprezentatywny; reprezentant, reprezentantka, przedstawiciel

tapped - stuknięty; stuknąć, puknąć; klepnięcie, stuknięcie, kran

obey - być posłusznym; przestrzegać

"May this young lady go with us?" he asked. "She may," replied the policeman.

lady - pani, dama, lady

Mr. Fogg, Aouda and Passepartout were conducted to a palkighari, a sort of four-wheeled carriage, drawn by two horses. They took their places and were driven away. No one spoke during the twenty minutes which elapsed before they reached their destination.

driven away - przepędzony

elapsed - upłynął; upływać

They first passed through the "black town," with its narrow streets, its miserable, dirty huts and squalid population; then through the "European town," which presented a relief in its bright brick mansions, shaded by coconut-trees and bristling with masts, where, although it was early morning, elegantly dressed horsemen and handsome equipages were passing back and forth.

miserable - nędzny, nieszczęśliwy

squalid - obskurny; brudny, nędzny, plugawy

mansions - rezydencje; rezydencja

shaded - zacieniony; aloza

coconut - kokos, orzech kokosowy

bristling - szczeciniasty; szczecina, sierść, włosie

masts - maszty; maszt

elegantly - elegancko

horsemen - jeźdźców; jeździec

equipages - wyposażenie, ekwipaż, powóz z koniami i z załogą

The carriage stopped before a modest-looking house, which, however, did not have the appearance of a private mansion. The policeman having requested his prisoners"for so, truly, they might be called"to descend, conducted them into a room with barred windows, and said: "You will appear before Judge Obadiah at half-past eight."

private - osobisty, prywatny, niejawny, poufny, prywatny, szeregowy

requested - wymagane; prosić, poprosić, prośba, żądanie

prisoners - więźniowie; więzień, więźniarka, jeniec

truly - autentycznie, naprawdę, serio, szczerze

barred - zabronione

He then retired, and closed the door.

"Why, we are prisoners!" exclaimed Passepartout, falling into a chair.

Aouda, with an emotion she tried to conceal, said to Mr. Fogg: "Sir, you must leave me to my fate! It is on my account that you receive this treatment. It is for having saved me!"

Phileas Fogg contented himself with saying that it was impossible. It was quite unlikely that he should be arrested for preventing a suttee. The complainants would not dare present themselves with such a charge. There was some mistake. Moreover, he would not, in any event, abandon Aouda, but would escort her to Hong Kong.

unlikely - nieprawdopodobne

preventing - zapobieganie; zapobiegać, zapobiec

complainants - skarżących; powód

charge - opłata; szarża; oskarżenie; ładunek elektryczny; podopieczny

Moreover - co więcej; ponadto, skądinąd

abandon - porzucić, opuszczać; pasja

"But the steamer leaves at noon!" observed Passepartout, nervously.

"We shall be on board by noon," replied his master, placidly. It was said so positively that Passepartout could not help muttering to himself, "Parbleu that's certain! Before noon we shall be on board." But he was by no means reassured.

placidly - spokojnie

muttering - mruczenie; (mutter) wymamrotać, mruknąć

At half-past eight the door opened, the policeman appeared, and, requesting them to follow him, led the way to an adjoining hall. It was evidently a courtroom, and a crowd of Europeans and natives already occupied the rear of the apartment.

requesting - prosić, poprosić, prośba, żądanie

adjoining - przylegające; dołączyć, przyłączyć, przylegać, sąsiadować

courtroom - sala sądowa, sala rozpraw

Mr. Fogg and his two companions took their places on a bench opposite the desks of the magistrate and his clerk. Immediately after, Judge Obadiah, a fat, round man, followed by the clerk, entered. He proceeded to take down a wig which was hanging on a nail, and put it hurriedly on his head.

magistrate - sędzia, sędzia pokoju

clerk - urzędnik, sprzedawca, recepcjonista

wig - peruka

nail - przybić gwoździem, przybić; paznokieć, gwóźdź, ćwiek

hurriedly - w pośpiechu; naprędce, pospiesznie, pośpiesznie

"The first case," he said. Then, putting his hand to his head, he exclaimed, "Heh! This is not my wig!"

Heh - hej, hm, co

"No, your worship," returned the clerk, "it is mine."

worship - kult; uwielbiene, adoracja, czcić

mine - kopać; kopalnia, mina; mój, moje

"My Dear Mr. Oysterpuff, how can a judge give a wise sentence in a clerk's wig?"

Dear Mr - szanowny; drogi panie (np. Smith)

The wigs were exchanged.

wigs - peruki; peruka

Passepartout was getting nervous, for the hands on the face of the big clock over the judge seemed to go around with terrible rapidity.

nervous - zdenerwowany; nerwowy

rapidity - szybkość

"The first case," repeated Judge Obadiah.

"Phileas Fogg?" demanded Oysterpuff.

demanded - zażądał; popyt, popyt, wymaganie

"I am here," replied Mr. Fogg.


"Present," responded Passepartout.

"Good," said the judge. "You have been looked for, prisoners, for two days on the trains from Bombay."

looked for - szukać czegoś, poszukiwać czegoś, spodziewać się

"But of what are we accused?" asked Passepartout, impatiently.

accused - oskarżony; oskarżać, oskarżyć

impatiently - niecierpliwie

"You are about to be informed."

informed - poinformowany; informować, powiadamiać

"I am an English subject, sir," said Mr. Fogg, "and I have the right""

"Have you been ill-treated?"

"Not at all."

"Very well. Let the complainants come in."

A door was swung open by order of the judge, and three Indian priests entered.

"That's it," muttered Passepartout. "These are the rogues who were going to burn our young lady."

The priests took their places in front of the judge, and the clerk proceeded to read in a loud voice a complaint of sacrilege against Phileas Fogg and his servant, who were accused of having violated a place held consecrated by the Brahmin religion.

complaint - reklamacja; skarga, zażalenie, dolegliwość

sacrilege - blasfemia, bluźnierstwo, profanacja, świętokradztwo

violated - naruszone; naruszać, pogwałcać

consecrated - konsekrowany; święcić, poświęcić

religion - religia

"You hear the charge?" asked the judge.

"Yes, sir," replied Mr. Fogg, consulting his watch, "and I admit it."

"You admit it?"

"I admit it, and I wish to hear these priests admit, in their turn, what they were going to do at the pagoda of Pillaji."

The priests looked at each other. They did not seem to understand what was said.

"Yes," cried Passepartout, warmly; "at the pagoda of Pillaji, where they were on the point of burning their victim."

warmly - serdecznie, ciepło

The judge stared with astonishment, and the priests were stupefied.

"What victim?" said Judge Obadiah. "Burn whom? In Bombay itself?"

"Bombay?" cried Passepartout.

"Certainly, we are not talking of the pagoda of Pillaji, but of the pagoda of Malabar Hill, at Bombay."

"And as a proof," added the clerk, "here are the desecrator's very shoes, which he left behind him."

desecrator - profanator

Whereupon he placed a pair of shoes on his desk.

"My shoes!" cried Passepartout, in his surprise permitting this imprudent exclamation to escape him.

permitting - zezwolenie; pozwalać, zezwalać

imprudent - nieostrożny, nieroztropny

exclamation - okrzyk, wykrzyk, wykrzyknik

The confusion of master and man, who had quite forgotten the affair at Bombay, for which they were now detained at Calcutta, may be imagined.

confusion - zamieszanie, chaos, nieporozumienie

detained - zatrzymany; zatrzymywać, zatrzymać

Fix, the detective, had foreseen the advantage which Passepartout's escapade gave him, and, delaying his departure for twelve hours, had consulted the priests of Malabar Hill. Knowing that the English authorities dealt very severely with this kind of misdemeanor, he promised them a goodly sum in damages, and sent them forward to Calcutta by the next train.

advantage - korzyść, zaleta, przewaga, awantaż

escapade - eskapada

delaying - opóźniać, odkładać; opóźnienie

authorities - władze; autorytet, powaga, władza, autorytet, arbiter, powaga

dealt - rozdawać; transakcja, umowa, układ

misdemeanor - wykroczenie, występek

damages - szkody; uszkodzenie

Owing to the delay caused by the rescue of the young widow, Fix and the priests reached the Indian capital before Mr. Fogg and his servant. The magistrates had been already warned by a despatch to arrest them should they arrive. Fix's disappointment when he learned that Phileas Fogg had not made his appearance in Calcutta may be imagined.

rescue - ratować, uratować, ocalić, ratunek

magistrates - sędziowie; sędzia, sędzia pokoju

warned - ostrzegać, upominać, uprzedzać

He made up his mind that the robber had stopped somewhere on the route and taken refuge in the southern provinces. For twenty-four hours Fix watched the station with feverish anxiety. At last he was rewarded by seeing Mr. Fogg and Passepartout arrive, accompanied by a young woman, whose presence he was wholly at a loss to explain.

somewhere - gdzieś, dokądś

southern - południowy

rewarded - nagrodzony; nagrodzić; nagroda

He hastened for a policeman, and this was how the party came to be arrested and brought before Judge Obadiah.

Had Passepartout been a little less preoccupied, he would have seen the detective settled in a corner of the courtroom, watching the proceedings with an interest easily understood; for the warrant had failed to reach him at Calcutta, as it had done at Bombay and Suez.

preoccupied - zajęty; absorbować, zaprzątać

proceedings - postępowania; (proceed) kontynuować, iść dalej

Judge Obadiah had unfortunately caught Passepartout's rash exclamation, which the poor fellow would have given the world to recall.

unfortunately - niestety

recall - wycofać; przywołanie, odwołanie, pamięć, pokrycie

"The facts are admitted?" asked the judge.

"Admitted," replied Mr. Fogg, coldly.

"Inasmuch," resumed the judge, "as the English law protects equally and sternly the religions of the Indian people, and as the man Passepartout has admitted that he violated the sacred pagoda of Malabar Hill, at Bombay, on the 20th of October, I condemn the said Passepartout to imprisonment for fifteen days and a fine of three hundred pounds."

protects - chronić

equally - na równi

sternly - surowo

condemn - potępiać, potępić

imprisonment - uwięzienie, osądzenie, pozbawienie wolności

"Three hundred pounds!" cried Passepartout, startled at the largeness of the sum.

startled - zaskoczyć, wystraszyć, spłoszyć

largeness - duże rozmiary, wielkość

"Silence!" shouted the constable.

constable - posterunkowy

"And inasmuch," continued the judge, "as it is not proved that the act was not done by the connivance of the master with the servant, and as the master in any case must be held responsible for the acts of his paid servant, I condemn Phileas Fogg to a week's imprisonment and a fine of one hundred and fifty pounds."

connivance - współudział; ciche przyzwolenie

responsible - odpowiedzialny; odpowiedzialny

Fix rubbed his hands softly with satisfaction. If Phileas Fogg could be detained in Calcutta a week, it would be more than time for the warrant to arrive. Passepartout was stupefied. This sentence ruined his master. A wager of twenty thousand pounds lost, because he, like a precious fool, had gone into that abominable pagoda!

softly - delikatnie; cicho

precious - cenny, drogocenny, drogi

gone into - zajmować się czymś (zacząć uprawiać zawód); iść na coś (np. czas); wyjaśniać coś; omawiać jakieś zagadnienie; otwierać coś (program; plik w komputerze); znaleźć się w czymś (w określonej sytuacji); uderzyć w coś (np. w drzewo); przejść w coś (zaczą

abominable - obrzydliwe; ohydny, odrażający, plugawy, niegodziwy

Phileas Fogg, as self-composed as if the judgment did not in the least concern him, did not even lift his eyebrows while it was being pronounced. Just as the clerk was calling the next case, he rose, and said, "I offer bail."

composed - tworzyć, komponować, układać

judgment - wyrok; osądzanie; rozsądek, rozeznanie, wyczucie, osąd

concern - obawy; tyczyć, dotyczyć, martwić

pronounced - wymawiane; oznajmiać, oznajmić, wymawiać, wymówić

bail - poręczyć, zwalniać za kaucją; kaucja, poręczyciel

"You have that right," returned the judge. Fix's blood ran cold, but he resumed his composure when he heard the judge announce that the bail required for each prisoner would be one thousand pounds.

announce - ogłaszać, ogłosić, oznajmiać, oznajmić

prisoner - więzień, więźniarka, jeniec

"I will pay it at once," said Mr. Fogg, taking a roll of bank bills from the carpetbag, which Passepartout had by him, and placing them on the clerk's desk.

"This sum will be restored to you upon your release from prison," said the judge. "Meanwhile, you are liberated on bail."

restored - przywrócony; odnowić

release - zwolnienie; uwolnienie, wydanie

liberated - wyzwolony; uwalniać, uwolnić, wyzwalać, wyzwolić, oswabadzać

"Come!" said Phileas Fogg to his servant.

"But let them at least give me back my shoes!" cried Passepartout angrily.

angrily - gniewnie

"Ah, these are pretty dear shoes!" he muttered, as they were handed to him. "More than a thousand pounds apiece. Besides, they pinch my feet."

apiece - za sztukę, za kawałek, na sztuki

pinch - szczypać, uszczypnąć, szczypanie, szczypnięcie, szczypta

Mr. Fogg, offering his arm to Aouda, then departed, followed by the crestfallen Passepartout. Fix still nourished hopes that the robber would not, after all, leave the two thousand pounds behind him, but would decide to serve out his week in jail, and issued forth on Mr. Fogg's traces. That gentleman took a carriage, and the party were soon landed on one of the quays.

departed - odchodzić, odjeżdżać, odlatywać, odstąpić

crestfallen - załamany

nourished - odżywić, nawieźć

jail - więzienie

The Rangoon was moored half a mile off in the harbor. Its signal of departure was hoisted at the masthead. Eleven o'clock was striking. Mr. Fogg was an hour in advance of time. Fix saw them leave the carriage and push off in a boat for the steamer, and stamped his feet with disappointment.

Rangoon - Rangun

moored - zacumowany; przycumować, zacumować; wrzosowisko, Maur

hoisted - podniesiony; podnosić, podnieść, wciągać, wciągnąć

masthead - szczyt masztu

push off - odepchnąć; odepchnąć się od brzegu; spływać, spadać, iść (skądś)

stamped - ostemplowane; (stamp) stąpać, tupać nogami, wyciskać piętno

"The rascal is off, after all!" he exclaimed. "Two thousand pounds sacrificed! He's as prodigal as a thief! I'll follow him to the end of the world if necessary; but, at the rate he is going on, the stolen money will soon be exhausted."

sacrificed - poświęcony; ofiarować, złożyć w ofierze, poświęcać, poświęcić

prodigal - marnotrawny, rozrzutny

stolen - skradziony; kraść, ukraść, gwizdnąć, skradać

exhausted - wyczerpany; wyczerpywać, wyczerpać, wyczerpywać, wyczerpać

The detective was not far wrong in making this conjecture. Since leaving London, what with traveling expenses, bribes, the purchase of the elephant, bails and fines, Mr. Fogg had already spent more than five thousand pounds on the way, and the percentage of the sum recovered from the bank robber, promised to the detectives, was rapidly diminishing.

conjecture - przypuszczenie, domysł

expenses - wydatki; ekspens, nakład, wydatek

bribes - łapówki; łapówka, dawać łapówka

bails - kaucje; poręczyć, zwalniać za kaucją; kaucja, poręczyciel

percentage - procent; korzyść

Chapter 16. In Which Fix Does Not Seem to Understand in the Least What is Said to Him

The Rangoon"one of the Peninsular and Oriental Company's boats plying in the Chinese and Japanese seas"was a screw steamer, built of iron, weighing about seventeen hundred and seventy tons, and with engines of four hundred horsepower. She was as fast, but not as well fitted up, as the Mongolia, and Aouda was not as comfortably provided for on board her as Phileas Fogg could have wished.

plying - posługiwać się, regularnie kursować; warstwa, grubość

Japanese - japoński; Japończyk, Japonka, japoński

screw steamer - parowiec śrubowy {okręt}

engines - silniki; silnik, motor, aparat, mechanizm, silnik

However, the trip from Calcutta to Hong Kong only comprised some three thousand five hundred miles, occupying from ten to twelve days, and the young woman was not difficult to please.

occupying - okupujący; okupować

During the first days of the journey Aouda became better acquainted with her protector, and constantly gave evidence of her deep gratitude for what he had done. The phlegmatic gentleman listened to her, apparently at least, with coldness, neither his voice nor his manner betraying the slightest emotion; but he seemed to be always on the watch that nothing should be wanting to Aouda's comfort.

acquainted - zapoznać, zaznajomić

protector - ochraniacz, obrońca

evidence - dowód, dowody, udowodnić, dowodzić, udowadniać

coldness - chłód

He visited her regularly each day at certain hours, not so much to talk himself, as to sit and hear her talk. He treated her with the strictest politeness, but with the precision of an automaton, the movements of which had been arranged for this purpose.

strictest - najsurowszy; surowy, srogi

politeness - uprzejmość, grzeczność, kurtuazja

precision - precyzja; dokładność

automaton - automat

movements - ruchy; ruch, ruch

Aouda did not quite know what to make of him, though Passepartout had given her some hints of his master's eccentricity, and made her smile by telling her of the wager which was sending him round the world. After all, she owed Phileas Fogg her life, and she always regarded him through the exalting medium of her gratitude.

hints - podpowiedzi; podpowiedź, odrobina, bąkać, bąknąć

regarded - uważany; mieć wzgląd, brać pod uwagę, dotyczyć

exalting - podnosić, potęgować, wychwalać, wynosić, wywyższać

medium - medium; średni

Aouda confirmed the Parsee guide's narrative of her touching history. She did, indeed, belong to the highest of the native races of India. Many of the Parsee merchants have made great fortunes there by dealing in cotton. One of them, Sir Jametsee Jeejeebhoy, was made a baronet by the English government.

races - wyścigi; ścigać się, pędzić; wyścig, rasa

fortunes - fortuny; fortuna, szczęście

baronet - baronet

Aouda was a relative of this great man, and it was his cousin, Jeejeeh, whom she hoped to join at Hong Kong. Whether she would find a protector in him she could not tell; but Mr. Fogg tried to calm her anxieties, and to assure her that everything would be mathematically"he used the very word"arranged.

anxieties - obawy; niepokój, trwoga, lęk

Aouda fastened her great eyes, "clear as the sacred lakes of the Himalaya," upon him; but the intractable Fogg, as reserved as ever, did not seem at all inclined to throw himself into this lake.

intractable - nieustępliwy, krnąbrny, trudny

inclined - przechylić, skłonić, nachylać, mieć na coś ochotę; zbocze, stok

lake - jezioro

The first few days of the voyage passed happily, amid favorable weather and propitious winds, and the ship soon came in sight of the great Andaman, the principal of the islands in the Bay of Bengal, with its picturesque Saddle Peak, two thousand four hundred feet high, looming above the waters.

Peak - szczyt

looming - zbliża się; wyłaniać się, majaczyć; krosno

The steamer passed along near the shores, but the savage Papuans, who are in the lowest scale of humanity, but are not, as has been asserted, cannibals, did not make their appearance.

shores - brzegi; wybrzeże, brzeg

Papuans - papuasi; papuaski, papuański

lowest - najniższy; obniżać; niski

scale - wdrapać się; skala, łuska; wagowy

humanity - człowieczeństwo, ludzkość, humanitaryzm, humanitarność

asserted - twierdzić, zapewniać, utrzymywać, bronić

cannibals - kanibale; antropofag, qualifier

The panorama of the islands, as they steamed by them, was superb. Vast forests of palms, arecs, bamboo, teakwood, of the gigantic mimosa and tree-like ferns covered the foreground. Behind, the graceful outlines of the mountains were traced against the sky; and along the coasts swarmed thousands of the precious swallows whose nests furnish a luxurious dish to the tables of the Celestial Empire.

steamed - gotowane na parze; para wodny

superb - super; znakomity

The varied landscape afforded by the Andaman Islands was soon passed, however, and the Rangoon rapidly approached the Straits of Malacca, which give access to the China seas.

varied - zróżnicowane; zmieniać, zmienić, zmieniać się, zmienić się

Malacca - Malakka

access - dostęp

China - Chiny; porcelana

What was detective Fix, so unluckily drawn on from country to country, doing all this while? He had managed to embark on the Rangoon at Calcutta without being seen by Passepartout, after leaving orders that, if the warrant should arrive, it should be forwarded to him at Hong Kong; and he hoped to conceal his presence to the end of the voyage.

unluckily - pechowo; niestety

managed - zarządzane; udać się, dać radę

embark on - wyruszać, rozpoczynać (np. podróż); rozpoczynać, podejmować, przedsięwziąć (np. kampanię)

forwarded - przekazane; naprzód

It would have been difficult to explain why he was on board without awakening Passepartout's suspicions, who thought him still at Bombay. But necessity impelled him, nevertheless, to renew his acquaintance with the worthy servant, as will be seen.

been difficult - być trudnym

awakening - budzenie, budzenie się, przebudzenie

suspicions - podejrzenia; podejrzenie

impelled - pchać, pobudzać, popędzać, zmuszać

nevertheless - mimo to; niemniej jednak, jednakże, jednakowoż

renew - odnowić

All the detective's hopes and wishes were now centered on Hong Kong; for the steamer's stay at Singapore would be too brief to enable him to take any steps there. The arrest must be made at Hong Kong, or the robber would probably escape him forever. Hong Kong was the last English ground on which he would set foot. Beyond, China, Japan, America offered to Fogg an almost certain refuge.

centered - wyśrodkowany; środek, centrum

If the warrant should at last make its appearance at Hong Kong, Fix could arrest him and be no further trouble. But beyond Hong Kong? a simple warrant would be of no avail. An extradition warrant would be necessary, and that would result in delays and obstacles, of which the rascal would take advantage to elude justice.

avail - przynosić korzyść; korzyść

extradition - ekstradycja

justice - sprawiedliwość; sędzia

Fix thought over these probabilities during the long hours which he spent in his cabin, and kept repeating to himself, "Now, either the warrant will be at Hong Kong, in which case I shall arrest my man, or it will not be there. This time it is absolutely necessary that I should delay his departure. I have failed at Bombay, and I have failed at Calcutta.

long hours - długie godziny; do późna (np. rozmawiać z kimś, pracować)

If I fail at Hong Kong, my reputation is lost. Cost what it may, I must succeed! But how shall I prevent his departure, if that should turn out to be my last resource?"

fail - nie udać się, zawieść

reputation - reputację; reputacja, renoma

resource - zasób, źródło, środki finansowe

Fix made up his mind that, if worst came to worst, he would make a confidant of Passepartout, and tell him what kind of a fellow his master really was. That Passepartout was not Fogg's accomplice, he was very certain. The servant, enlightened by his disclosure, and afraid of being himself implicated in the crime, would doubtless become an ally of the detective.

confidant - powiernikiem; powiernik, powierniczka, zausznik, zausznica

accomplice - wspólnik, wspólniczka, współsprawca

enlightened - oświecony; oświecać, uświadamiać, oświecać, uświadamiać

disclosure - wyjawienie, ujawnienie

implicated - zamieszać, wplątać

But this method was a dangerous one, only to be employed when everything else had failed. A word from Passepartout to his master would ruin all. The detective was therefore in a sore strait. But suddenly a new idea struck him. The presence of Aouda on the Rangoon, in company with Phileas Fogg, gave him new material for reflection.

employed - zatrudniony

ruin - ruina, rujnować, zrujnować

sore - rana, bolące miejsce; bolący, obolały

material - materialny; materialny; materiał

reflection - refleksja; odbicie, refleks

Who was this woman? What combination of events had made her Fogg's traveling companion? They had evidently met somewhere between Bombay and Calcutta; but where? Had they met accidentally, or had Fogg gone into the interior purposely in quest of this charming damsel? Fix was fairly puzzled. He asked himself whether there had not been a wicked elopement.

combination - połączenie; kombinacja

accidentally - przypadkowo

purposely - celowo

quest - zadanie; poszukiwanie, dążenie

damsel - dziewica

wicked - zły; nikczemny, niegodziwy, szelmowski, okropny

elopement - ucieczka, ucieczka kochanków

This idea so impressed itself upon his mind that he determined to make use of the supposed intrigue. Whether the young woman were married or not, he would be able to create such difficulties for Mr. Fogg at Hong Kong that he could not escape by paying any amount of money. But could he even wait till they reached Hong Kong?

impressed - imponować, odciskać, wywierać; piętno

intrigue - intryga; fabuła; intrygować

difficulties - trudności; trudność

Fogg had an abominable way of jumping from one boat to another, and, before anything could be effected, might get full under weigh again for Yokohama.

effected - wpłynęło; efekt, rezultat, wynik, skutek

weigh - ważyć; odważyć; ważyć

Fix decided that he must warn the English authorities, and signal the Rangoon before her arrival. This was easy to do, since the steamer stopped at Singapore, where there is a telegraphic wire to Hong Kong. He finally resolved, moreover, before acting more positively, to question Passepartout. It would not be difficult to make him talk.

wire - drut; przewód, kabel, pluskwa

finally - na koniec; w końcu, wreszcie, nareszcie

As there was no time to lose, Fix prepared to make himself known.

It was now the 30th of October, and on the following day the

Rangoon was due at Singapore.

Fix emerged from his cabin and went on deck. Passepartout was promenading up and down in the forward part of the steamer. The detective rushed forward with every appearance of extreme surprise, and exclaimed, "You here, on the Rangoon?"

rushed forward - pęd do przodu; pognać naprzód

extreme - ekstremalne; skrajny; nadzwyczajny, drastyczny, ekstremalny

"What, Monsieur Fix, are you on board?" returned the really

astonished Passepartout, recognizing his crony of the Mongolia.

crony - kolesia; serdeczny przyjaciel, kumpel

"Why, I left you at Bombay, and here you are on the way to Hong

Kong! Are you going round the world too?"

"No, no," replied Fix. "I shall stop at Hong Kong"at least for some days."

"Hum!" said Passepartout, who seemed for an instant perplexed.

Hum - nucić

perplexed - zakłopotać, wprawić w zakłopotanie

"But how is it I have not seen you on board since we left


"Oh, a trifle of seasickness"I've been staying in my berth. The

berth - miejsce do cumowania; koja, kuszetka, cumować

Gulf of Bengal does not agree with me as well as the Indian

Ocean. And how is Mr. Fogg?"

"As well and as punctual as ever, not a day behind time! But,

punctual - punktualny

Monsieur Fix, you don't know that we have a young lady with us."

"A young lady?" replied the detective, not seeming to comprehend what was said.

comprehend - zrozumieć; obejmować, objąć, pojmować, pojąć

Passepartout thereupon recounted Aouda's history, the affair at the Bombay pagoda, the purchase of the elephant for two thousand pounds, the rescue, the arrest and sentence of the Calcutta court, and the restoration of Mr. Fogg and himself to liberty on bail.

thereupon - skutkiem tego, bezzwłocznie

recounted - przeliczone; opisać

restoration - przywrócenie; odbudowa

Fix, who was familiar with the last events, seemed to be equally ignorant of all that Passepartout related; and the latter was charmed to find so interested a listener.

related - powiązane; odnosić się, zrelacjonować, dotyczyć

listener - słuchacz, słuchaczka

"But does your master propose to carry this young woman to

propose - proponować, zaproponować, oświadczać się, oświadczyć się


"Not at all. We are simply going to place her under the protection of one of her relatives, a rich merchant at Hong Kong."

Simply - po prostu

protection - ochrona

"Nothing to be done there," said Fix to himself, concealing his disappointment. "A glass of gin, Mr. Passepartout?"

concealing - ukrywanie; chować, schować, ukrywać, ukryć, skrywać, skryć

"Willingly, Monsieur Fix. We must at least have a friendly glass on board the Rangoon."

Chapter 17. Showing What Happened on the Voyage from Singapore to Hong Kong

The detective and Passepartout met often on deck after this interview, though Fix was reserved, and did not attempt to induce his companion to divulge any more facts concerning Mr. Fogg. He caught a glimpse of that mysterious gentleman once or twice. But Mr. Fogg usually confined himself to the cabin, where he kept Aouda company, or, according to his inveterate habit, took a hand at whist.

induce - skłaniać, nakłaniać, spowodować

divulge - ujawnić; rozgłaszać

inveterate - zatwardziały

Passepartout began very seriously to conjecture what strange chance kept Fix still on the route that his master was pursuing.

pursuing - dążenie; (pursue) dążyć do czegoś, kontynuować, ściskać

It was really worth considering why this certainly very amiable and complacent person, whom he had first met at Suez, had then encountered on board the Mongolia, who disembarked at Bombay, which he announced as his destination, and now turned up so unexpectedly on the Rangoon, was following Mr. Fogg's tracks step by step. What was Fix's object?

considering - (consider) rozważać, rozpatrywać; zważywszy, biorąc pod uwagę

complacent - zadufany

encountered - napotkany; spotkanie

unexpectedly - nieoczekiwanie, niespodziewanie, niespodzianie

tracks - utwory; ślad

Passepartout was ready to wager his Indian shoes"which he religiously preserved"that Fix would also leave Hong Kong at the same time with them, and probably on the same steamer.

religiously - religijnie

Passepartout might have cudgeled his brain for a century without hitting upon the real object which the detective had in view. He never could have imagined that Phileas Fogg was being tracked as a robber around the globe.

cudgeled - przytulony; pałka, maczuga

hitting - uderzenie; uderzać

tracked - śledzony; ślad

But, as it is in human nature to attempt the solution of every mystery, Passepartout suddenly discovered an explanation of Fix's movements, which was in truth far from unreasonable. Fix, he thought, could only be an agent of Mr. Fogg's friends at the Reform Club, sent to follow him up, and to ascertain that he really went round the world as had been agreed upon.

solution - roztwór; rozwiązanie

mystery - tajemnica, misterium

truth - prawda; wierność, racja

unreasonable - nierozsądne; nierozsądny

agent - pełnomocnik, plenipotent, czynnik, środek, agent, agentka, agens

"It's clear!" repeated the worthy servant to himself, proud of his shrewdness. "He's a spy sent to keep us in view! That isn't quite the thing, either, to be spying on Mr. Fogg, who is so honorable a man! Ah, gentlemen of the Reform, this shall cost you dear!"

shrewdness - przebiegłość, spryt

spying - (spy) szpiegować, dostrzec; szpiegowanie

honorable - honorowy; czcigodny, szanowny, dostojny

Passepartout, enchanted with his discovery, resolved to say nothing to his master, lest he should be justly offended at this mistrust on the part of his adversaries. But he determined to chaff Fix, when he had the chance, with mysterious allusions, which, however, need not betray his real suspicions.

discovery - odkrycie; odkrywanie

justly - sprawiedliwie, słusznie

offended - obrażony; obrażać, obrazić, urażać, urazić, obrazić się

mistrust - nieufność

chaff - plewy; sieczka

allusions - aluzje; aluzja

During the afternoon of Wednesday, 30th October, the Rangoon entered the Strait of Malacca, which separates the peninsula of that name from Sumatra. The mountainous and craggy islets intercepted the beauties of this noble island from the view of the travelers. The Rangoon weighed anchor at Singapore the next day at four A.M.

, to receive coal, having gained half a day on the prescribed time of her arrival. Phileas Fogg noted this gain in his journal, and then, accompanied by Aouda, who betrayed a desire for a walk on shore, disembarked.

prescribed - przepisane; przepisywać, ordynować, wydać receptę na (lek)

Fix, who suspected Mr. Fogg's every movement, followed them cautiously, without being himself perceived; while Passepartout, laughing in his sleeve at Fix's maneuvers, went about his usual errands.

movement - ruch

sleeve - rękaw; koperta

maneuvers - manewry; manewr, manewr, ćwiczenia

The island of Singapore is not imposing in aspect, for there are no mountains; yet its appearance is not without attractions. It is a park checkered by pleasant highways and avenues.

attractions - atrakcje; przyciąganie

checkered - w kratkę; kontroler jakości, kasjer, pionek

highways - autostrady; autostrada, szosa

avenues - drogi; aleja, podjazd

A handsome carriage, drawn by a sleek pair of New Holland horses, carried Phileas Fogg and Aouda into the midst of rows of palms with brilliant foliage, and of clover-trees, whereof the cloves form the head of a half-open flower. Pepper plants replaced the prickly hedges of European fields. Sago-bushes, large ferns with gorgeous branches, varied the aspect of this tropical clime.

sleek - elegancki; gładki

Holland - Holandia

clover - koniczyna, dzięcielina

whereof - czego, kogo, który

bushes - krzaki; krzak, gęsta czupryna

gorgeous - wspaniały; przepiękny, arcypiękny

tropical - tropikalny, zwrotnikowy

clime - strefa, klima, klimat

Nutmeg trees in full foliage filled the air with a penetrating perfume. Agile and grinning bands of monkeys skipped about in the trees, nor were tigers wanting in the jungles.

perfume - woń, zapach, aromat, perfumy, perfumować, naperfumować

grinning - uśmiechając się; szeroko się uśmiechać

skipped - pominięty; opuścić, pomijać, unikać, wagarować, podskakiwać

After a drive of two hours through the country, Aouda and Mr. Fogg returned to the town, which is a vast collection of heavy-looking, irregular houses, surrounded by charming gardens rich in tropical fruits and plants. At ten o'clock they re-embarked, closely followed by the detective, who had kept them constantly in sight.

collection - zbiór, kolekcja, zbieranie, składka, zrzutka

embarked - zaokrętowany; mbarkować

closely - blisko

Passepartout, who had been purchasing several dozen mangoes"a fruit as large as good-sized apples, of a dark brown color outside and a bright red within, and whose white pulp, melting in the mouth, affords gourmands a delicious sensation"was waiting for them on deck. He was only too glad to offer some mangoes to Aouda, who thanked him very gracefully for them.

mangoes - mango

dark brown - ciemny brąz, ciemnobrązowy

pulp - miąższ; miazga

melting - topi się; (melt); topnieć, stopnieć, topić się, stopić się

affords - zapewnia; pozwalać

gracefully - z wdziękiem

At eleven o'clock the Rangoon rode out of Singapore harbor, and in a few hours the high mountains of Malacca, with their forests, inhabited by the most beautifully furred tigers in the world, were lost to view. Singapore is distant some thirteen hundred miles from the island of Hong Kong, which is a little English colony near the Chinese coast.

high mountains - góry wysokie

beautifully - pięknie

furred - futro, futerko; futrzany

colony - kolonia

Phileas Fogg hoped to accomplish the journey in six days, so as to be in time for the steamer which would leave on the 6th of November for Yokohama, the principal Japanese port.

accomplish - osiągnąć; dokonywać, dokonać

The Rangoon had a large quota of passengers, many of whom disembarked at Singapore, among them a number of Indians, Ceylonese, Chinamen, Malays and Portuguese, mostly second-class travelers.

Chinamen - chińczycy; chinol

Malays - malajowie; malajski, Malaj, Malajka, malajski

The weather, which had hitherto been fine, changed with the last quarter of the moon. The sea rolled heavily, and the wind at intervals rose almost to a storm, but happily blew from the southwest, and thus aided the steamer's progress.

hitherto - do tej pory; dotychczas, dotąd

storm - atakować, pieklić się; burza

blew - dmuchał; dmuchać, wywiać, wiać; cios, dmuchanie

southwest - olish: południowy zachód g

aided - wspomagane; bliski współpracownik, bliska współpracownica

The captain as often as possible put up his sails, and under the double action of steam and sail the vessel made rapid progress along the coast of Anam and Cochin China.

captain - kapitan; dowodzić

sail - żeglować, wyruszać w podróż; żagiel

vessel - statek; naczynie

Owing to the defective construction of the Rangoon, however, unusual precautions became necessary in unfavorable weather; but the loss of time which resulted from this cause, while it nearly drove Passepartout out of his senses, did not seem to affect his master in the least.

defective - uszkodzony; wadliwy, felerny, ułomny

construction - budowa, konstrukcja, budynek, budowla, budowla

precautions - ostrożność, środek ostrożności

loss of time - strata czasu

senses - zmysły; zmysł, poczucie

Passepartout blamed the captain, the engineer and the crew, and consigned all who were connected with the ship to the land where the pepper grows. Perhaps the thought of the gas, which was remorselessly burning at his expense in Saville Row, had something to do with his hot impatience.

blamed - obwiniony

crew - załoga

consigned - wysłany; wyrzucić, wysłać, powierzyć opiece

connected - połączony; łączyć, połączyć, łączyć, połączyć, łączyć, połączyć

remorselessly - bezlitośnie

"You are in a great hurry, then," said Fix to him one day, "to reach Hong Kong?"

"A very great hurry!"

"Mr. Fogg, I suppose, is anxious to catch the steamer for


"Terribly anxious."

Terribly - strasznie; okropnie

"You believe in this journey around the world, then?"

"Absolutely. Don't you, Mr. Fix?"

"I? I don't believe a word of it."

"You're a sly dog!" said Passepartout, winking at him.

sly dog - cwaniak

winking - (wink) mrugać, zamigotać; mrugnięcie oka; mruganie, migotanie

This expression rather disturbed Fix, without his knowing why. Had the Frenchman guessed his real purpose? He knew not what to think. But how could Passepartout have discovered that he was a detective? Yet, in speaking as he did, the man evidently meant more than he expressed.

expressed - wyrażone; wyrażać; ekspres; ekspresowy, szybki

Passepartout went still further the next day. He could not hold his tongue.

hold - utrzymać, trzymać, odbywać; dzierżawa, posiadanie

"Mr. Fix," said he, in a bantering tone, "shall we be so unfortunate as to lose you when we get to Hong Kong?"

bantering - przekomarzanie się; (banter) droczyć się

unfortunate - niefortunne; fatalny, pechowy

"Why," responded Fix, a little embarrassed, "I don't know; perhaps""

"Ah, if you would only go on with us! An agent of the Peninsular

Company, you know, can't stop on the way! You were only going to

Bombay, and here you are in China. America is not far off, and

from America to Europe is only a step."

Fix looked intently at his companion, whose countenance was as serene as possible, and laughed with him. But Passepartout persisted in chaffing him by asking him if he made much by his present occupation.

intently - celowo, intensywnie, uważnie, w skupieniu

chaffing - odpryski; (chaff) pokpiwanie z kogoś, naciągać

occupation - zajęcie, zawód, fach, zajmowanie, okupacja

"Yes, and no," returned Fix. "There is good and bad luck in such things. But you must understand that I don't travel at my own expense."

bad luck - pech

"Oh, I am quite sure of that!" cried Passepartout, laughing heartily.

heartily - z apetytem, serdecznie, z zapałem

Fix, fairly puzzled, descended to his cabin and gave himself up to his reflections. He was evidently suspected; somehow or other the Frenchman had found out that he was a detective. But had he told his master? What part was he playing in all this. Was he an accomplice or not? Was the game, then, up?

somehow or other - w ten czy w inny sposób

Fix spent several hours turning these things over in his mind, sometimes thinking that all was lost, then persuading himself that Fogg was ignorant of his presence, and then undecided what course it was best to take.

persuading - przekonywanie; przekonywać, przekonać

undecided - niepewny; niezdecydowany

Nevertheless, he preserved his coolness of mind, and at last resolved to deal plainly with Passepartout. If he did not find it practicable to arrest Fogg at Hong Kong, and if Fogg made preparations to leave that last foothold of English territory, he, Fix, would tell Passepartout all.

coolness - fajność; chłód, opanowanie, spokój, zimna krew

practicable - wykonalne; wykonalny

Either the servant was the accomplice of his master, and in this case the master knew of his operations, and he should fail; or else the servant knew nothing about the robbery, and then his interest would be to abandon the robber.

operations - operacje; działanie

Such was the situation between Fix and Passepartout. Meanwhile Phileas Fogg moved about above them in the most majestic and unconscious indifference. He was passing methodically in his orbit around the world, regardless of the lesser stars which gravitated around him.

most majestic - najbardziej majestatyczny

methodically - metodycznie

lesser - mniejszy; mniej

gravitated - grawitował; skłaniać się

Yet there was near by what the astronomers would call a disturbing star, which might have produced an agitation in this gentleman's heart. But no! The charms of Aouda failed to act, to Passepartout's great surprise; and the disturbances, if they existed, would have been more difficult to calculate than those of Uranus which led to the discovery of Neptune.

near by - w pobliżu

astronomers - astronomów; astronom, astronomka

disturbing - niepokojące; przeszkadzać, niepokoić, martwić, zmartwić

agitation - pobudzenie; agitacja

disturbances - zaburzenia, niepokojenie, niepokój

existed - istniał; istnieć, egzystować

calculate - obliczyć; rachować, wyliczać, kalkulować, policzyć

Uranus - Uranos, Uran

Neptune - Neptun, Neptun

It was every day an increasing wonder to Passepartout, who read in Aouda's eyes the depths of her gratitude to his master. Phileas Fogg, though brave and gallant, must be, he thought, quite heartless. As to the sentiment which this journey might have awakened in him, there was clearly no trace of such a thing; while poor Passepartout existed in perpetual reveries.

increasing - (increase) zwiększać, wzrastać; powiększenie, wzrost

heartless - bez serca, bezduszny, bezserdeczny

sentiment - sentyment

awakened - zbudzić, obudzić; obudzony, przebudzony

trace - namierzać, wyśledzić, śledzić; ślad, uprzęż, poszlaka

perpetual - wieczyste; wieczny; bezustanny

reveries - zadumy

One day he was leaning on the railing of the engine room, and was observing the engine, when a sudden pitch of the steamer threw the screw out of the water. The steam came hissing out of the valves; and this made Passepartout indignant.

railing - poręcz; reling

engine room - maszynownia

pitch - boisko; rzucać, padać; poziom, stopień, szczyt, miejsce, smoła

screw - śruba; wkręt, skręcać, skręcić

valves - zawory; zawór, wentyl, zawór, zastawka

indignant - oburzony

"The valves are not sufficiently charged!" he exclaimed. "We are not going. Oh, these English! If this was an American craft, we should blow up, perhaps, but we should at all events go faster!"

sufficiently - wystarczająco

blow up - wybuchnąć gniewem, naskoczyć (na kogoś); wylecieć w powietrze; rozpętać się, nadciągnąć (np. wichura)

at all events - cokolwiek się stanie, cokolwiek się dzieje; w każdym razie

Chapter 18. In Which Phileas Fogg, Passepartout and Fix Go Each about His Business

The weather was bad during the latter days of the voyage. The wind, obstinately remaining in the northwest, blew a gale, and retarded the steamer. The Rangoon rolled heavily and the passengers became impatient of the long, monstrous waves which the wind raised before their path.

remaining - pozostały; pozostałości, pozostawać, pozostać

gale - wichura

retarded - wstrzymać, opóźnić

impatient - niecierpliwy

monstrous - potworny; monstrualny

waves - fale; falować, machać; fala

A sort of tempest arose on the 3rd of November, the squall knocking the vessel about with fury, and the waves running high. The Rangoon reefed all her sails, and even the rigging proved too much, whistling and shaking amid the squall. The steamer was forced to proceed slowly, and the captain estimated that she would reach Hong Kong twenty hours behind time, and more if the storm lasted.

tempest - burza

squall - szkwał

knocking - (knock) pukać, stukać, przewracać; pukanie; mocno uderzyć

fury - wściekłość; Furia

forced - wymuszone; zmuszać, wymuszać, narzucać; siła, oddział

estimated - szacowany; oszacowanie

lasted - trwały; trwać; ostatni

Phileas Fogg gazed at the tempestuous sea, which seemed to be struggling especially to delay him, with his habitual tranquillity. He never changed countenance for an instant, though a delay of twenty hours, by making him too late for the Yokohama boat, would almost inevitably cause the loss of the wager. But this man of nerve manifested neither impatience nor annoyance.

tempestuous - burzliwy

struggling - walczący; (struggle) walczyć, borykać się; walka; zmagający się

tranquillity - spokój

nerve - nerw; żyłka; odwaga; czelność, tupet, zuchwalstwo, bezczelność

manifested - zamanifestowane; manifest

It seemed as if the storm were a part of his program, and had been foreseen. Aouda was amazed to find him as calm as he had been from the first time she saw him.

amazed - zdumiony; zdumiewać, zdumieć, osłupić, zadziwiać, zadziwić

Fix did not look at the state of things in the same light. The storm greatly pleased him. His satisfaction would have been complete had the Rangoon been forced to retreat before the violence of wind and waves.

retreat - odosobnienie; wycofać się, uciekać; schronienie, azyl, kryjówka

violence - gwałtowność; przemoc

Each delay filled him with hope, for it became more and more probable that Fogg would be obliged to remain some days at Hong Kong; and now the heavens themselves became his allies, with the gusts and squalls. It mattered not that they made him seasick"he made nothing of this inconvenience; and, while his body was writhing under their effects, his spirit bounded with hopeful joy.

more probable - bardziej prawdopodobne

heavens - niebiosa; niebo

allies - sojuszników; połączyć, sprzymierzyć; sprzymierzeniec

bounded - ograniczony; (bind) odbić się, skoczyć, związać, połączyć; skok

joy - radość

Passepartout was enraged beyond expression by the unpropitious weather. Everything had gone so well till now! Earth and sea had seemed to be at his master's service. Steamers and railways obeyed him. Wind and steam united to speed his journey. Had the hour of adversity come? Passepartout was as much excited as if the twenty thousand pounds were to come from his own pocket.

unpropitious - niesprzyjające

till now - do teraz

obeyed - posłuszny; przestrzegać

adversity - niedola, nieszczęście

The storm exasperated him, the gale made him furious, and he longed to lash the obstinate sea into obedience. Poor fellow! Fix carefully concealed from him his own satisfaction, for, had he betrayed it, Passepartout could scarcely have restrained himself from personal violence.

exasperated - zdenerwowany; wkurzać

lash - bić, chłostać, mocować, umocować; rzęsa, bicz, bat

obstinate - uparty, zawzięty, uporczywy

obedience - posłuszeństwo

restrained - powściągliwy; pohamować, powstrzymać, ograniczyć, obezwładniać

Passepartout remained on deck as long as the tempest lasted, being unable to remain quiet below, and taking it into his head to aid the progress of the ship by lending a hand with the crew. He overwhelmed the captain, officers and sailors, who could not help laughing at his impatience, with all sorts of questions. He wanted to know exactly how long the storm was going to last.

aid - pomagać, wspierać; pomoc, wsparcie

overwhelmed - przytłoczony; zalewać, miażdżyć, przytłaczać, przytłoczyć

sorts - rodzaje; sortować; rodzaj, typ

He was referred to the barometer, which seemed to have no intention of rising. Passepartout shook it, but with no perceptible effect; for neither shaking nor maledictions could prevail upon if to change its mind.

referred - o którym mowa; dotyczyć, odnosić się do, odsyłać, skierować

barometer - barometr, wskaźnik

intention - intencja, zamiar

perceptible - dostrzegalny, wyczuwalny

prevail - przetrwać, wygrywać, panować

On the 4th, however, the sea became more calm, and the storm lessened its violence. The wind veered southward, and was once more favorable. Passepartout cleared up with the weather. Some of the sails were unfurled, and the Rangoon resumed its most rapid speed. The time lost could not, however, be regained. Land was not signaled until five o'clock on the morning of the 6th.

lessened - zmniejszona; zmniejszyć, złagodzić, obniżyć, przycichnąć

veered - zawrócił; skręcać, zmienić kierunek

southward - na południe

cleared up - wyjaśnione

unfurled - rozwinięty; rozwinąć, rozwijać

regained - odzyskane; odzyskać

The steamer was due on the 5th. Phileas Fogg was twenty-four hours behind, and the Yokohama steamer would, of course, be missed.

The pilot went on board at six, and took his place on the bridge, to guide the Rangoon through the channels to the port of Hong Kong. Passepartout longed to ask him if the steamer had left for Yokohama; but he dared not, for he wished to preserve the spark of hope, which still remained till the last moment.

channels - kanały; droga, kanał

spark - iskra

He had confided his anxiety to Fix who"the sly rascal"tried to console him by saying that Mr. Fogg would be in time if he took the next boat. This only put Passepartout in a passion.

confided - zwierzać się, powierzać

sly - chytry, cwany

console - pocieszyć; konsola

Mr. Fogg, bolder than his servant, did not hesitate to approach the pilot, and tranquilly ask him if he knew when a steamer would leave Hong Kong for Yokohama.

bolder - odważniejszy; pogrubienie; odważny, śmiały

tranquilly - spokojnie

"At high tide tomorrow morning," answered the pilot.

high tide - (wysoki) przypływ (na oceanie, morzu)

"Ah!" said Mr. Fogg, without betraying any astonishment.

Passepartout, who heard what passed, would willingly have embraced the pilot, while Fix would have been glad to twist his neck.

embraced - objęty; obejmować, objąć, uściskać, uścisnąć, przytulać

been glad - cieszyć się; być zadowolonym

twist - skręt; kręcić

"What is the steamer's name?" asked Mr. Fogg.

"The Carnatic."

"Ought she not to have gone yesterday?"

"Yes, sir; but they had to repair one of her boilers, and so her departure was postponed till tomorrow."

repair - naprawa; naprawiać, udawać się gdzieś, uczęszczać gdzieś

boilers - kotły; bojler, kocioł

postponed - przełożone; odroczyć, odraczać, odłożyć, odkładać

"Thank you," returned Mr. Fogg, descending mathematically to the saloon.

clasped - zapięty; klamra

delight - radość, rozkosz, przyjemność, zachwyt, cieszyć

exclaiming - wykrzykując; wołać, zawołać, wykrzykiwać, wykrzyknąć

The pilot probably does not know to this day why his responses won him this enthusiastic greeting. He remounted the bridge, and guided the steamer through the flotilla of junks, tankas and fishing boats which crowded the harbor of Hong Kong.

responses - odpowiedzi; odpowiedź

greeting - pozdrowienie, powitanie

remounted - ponownie zamontowany; ponownie wsiąść, ponownie dosiąść

guided - prowadzony

fishing boats - łodzie rybackie, statki rybackie

crowded - zatłoczone; tłoczyć się, zaludniać; tłum

At one o'clock the Rangoon was at the quay, and the passengers were going ashore.

Chance had strangely favored Phileas Fogg, for if the Carnatic had not been forced to lie over for repairing her boiler, she would have left on the 6th of November, and the passengers for Japan would have been obliged to wait a week for the sailing of the next steamer. Mr. Fogg was, it is true, twenty-four hours behind his time; but this could not seriously imperil the remainder of his tour.

strangely - dziwnie, dziwacznie

lie - leżeć, kłamać, znajdować się; kłamstwo

repairing - naprawy; naprawiać, udawać się gdzieś, uczęszczać gdzieś

boiler - bojler, kocioł

sailing - (sail) żeglować, wyruszać w podróż; żagiel, żeglarstwo

imperil - narażać na niebezpieczeństwo

remainder - pozostać; reszta, ostatek

The steamer which crossed the Pacific from Yokohama to San Francisco made a direct connection with that from Hong Kong, and it could not sail until the latter reached Yokohama. If Mr. Fogg was twenty-four hours late on reaching Yokohama, this time would no doubt be easily regained in the voyage of twenty-two days across the Pacific.

Pacific - Pacyfik; spokojny, pokojowy

connection - połączenie; przesiadka

He found himself, then, about twenty-four hours behind time, thirty-five days after leaving London.

The Carnatic was announced to leave Hong Kong at five the next morning. Mr. Fogg had sixteen hours in which to attend to his business there, which was to deposit Aouda safely with her wealthy relative.

attend to - brać udział, być obecnym, uczestniczyć; uczęszczać

On landing, he conducted her to a palanquin, in which they repaired to the Club Hotel. A room was engaged for the young woman, and Mr. Fogg, after seeing that she wanted for nothing, set out in search of her cousin Jeejeeh. He instructed Passepartout to remain at the hotel until his return, that Aouda might not be left entirely alone.

instructed - instruować, kształcić, nauczać, pouczać, uczyć

entirely - całkowicie, zupełnie

Mr. Fogg repaired to the Exchange, where, he did not doubt, everyone would know so wealthy and considerable a person as the Parsee merchant.

Meeting a broker, he made the inquiry, to learn that Jeejeeh had left China two years before, and, retiring from business with an immense fortune, had taken up his residence in Europe"in"Holland the broker thought, with the merchants of which country he had principally traded.

Phileas Fogg returned to the hotel, begged a moment's conversation with Aouda, and, without more ado, told her that Jeejeeh was no longer at Hong Kong, but probably in Holland.

Aouda at first said nothing. She passed her hand across her forehead, and reflected a few moments. Then, in her sweet, soft voice, she said: "What ought I to do, Mr. Fogg?"

reflected - odzwierciedlone; odbijać, odbić, odbijać się, odbić się

Chapter 19. In Which Passepartout Takes a Too Great Interest in His Master, and What Comes of It

Hong Kong is an island which came into the possession of the English by the Treaty of Nankin, after the war of 1842; and the colonizing genius of the English has created upon it an important city and an excellent port. The island is situated at the mouth of the Canton River, and is separated by about sixty miles from the Portuguese town of Macao, on the opposite coast.

Macao - makau; Makao

Hong Kong has beaten Macao in the struggle for the Chinese trade, and now the greater part of the transportation of Chinese goods finds its depot at the former place. Docks, hospitals, wharves, a Gothic cathedral, a government house, macadamized streets, give to Hong Kong the appearance of a town in Kent or Surrey transferred by some strange magic to the antipodes.

Antipodes - antypody-p

Passepartout wandered, with his hands in his pockets, towards the Victoria port, gazing as he went at the curious palanquins and other modes of conveyance, and the groups of Chinese, Japanese and Europeans who passed to and fro in the streets. Hong Kong seemed to him not unlike Bombay, Calcutta and Singapore, since, like them, it betrayed everywhere the evidence of English supremacy.

pockets - kieszenie; kieszeń, kieszonkowy

Victoria - Wiktoria, Victoria

modes - tryby

unlike - w przeciwieństwie do; niepodobny, w odróżnieniu

supremacy - supremacja, przewaga, zwierzchnictwo

At the Victoria port he found a confused mass of ships of all nations: English, French, American and Dutch, men-of-war and trading vessels, Japanese and Chinese junks, sempas, tankas and flower-boats, which formed so many floating parterres. Passepartout noticed in the crowd a number of the natives who seemed very old and were dressed in yellow.

vessels - statki; statek, naczynie

floating - pływające; (float) unosić się, pływać, rozchodzić się

On going into a barber's to get shaved he learned that these ancient men were all at least eighty years old, at which age they are permitted to wear yellow, which is the Imperial color. Passepartout, without exactly knowing why, thought this Very funny.

shaved - ogolony; ogolić się, zetrzeć

permitted - dozwolone; pozwalać, zezwalać

On reaching the quay where they were to embark on the Carnatic, he was not astonished to find Fix walking up and down. The detective seemed very much disturbed and disappointed.

embark - objąć; mbarkować

"This is bad," muttered Passepartout, "for the gentlemen of the Reform Club!" He accosted Fix with a merry smile, as if he had not perceived that gentleman's chagrin. The detective had, indeed, good reasons to inveigh against the bad luck which pursued him. The warrant had not come! It was certainly on the way, but as certainly it could not now reach Hong Kong for several days.

accosted - zaczepiony; zaczepić, zagabnąć, nagabnąć

merry - radosny, wesoły

chagrin - rozgoryczenie; poczucie klęski; jaszczur, szagryn

inveigh - pomstować, złorzeczyć

luck - szczęście; sukces

This being the last English territory on Mr. Fogg's route, the robber would escape, unless he could manage to detain him.

manage - zarządzać; udać się, dać radę

detain - zatrzymywać, zatrzymać

"Well, Monsieur Fix," said Passepartout, "have you decided to go with us as far as America?"

"Yes," returned Fix, through his set teeth.

"Good!" exclaimed Passepartout, laughing heartily. "I knew you could not persuade yourself to separate from us. Come and engage your berth."

persuade - namawiać, przekonywać, perswadować

separate from - oddzielić od; odróżniać od; oddzielony od, odseparowany od

They entered the steamer office and secured cabins for four persons. The clerk, as he gave them the tickets, informed them that, the repairs on the Carnatic having been completed, the steamer would leave that very evening, and not next morning, as had been announced.

repairs - naprawy; naprawiać, udawać się gdzieś, uczęszczać gdzieś

"That will suit my master all the better," said Passepartout. "I will go and let him know."

suit - garnitur; kostium, kombinezon, kolor, pasować, odpowiadać

Fix now decided to make a bold move. He resolved to tell Passepartout all. It seemed to be the only possible means of keeping Phileas Fogg several days longer at Hong Kong. He accordingly invited his companion into a tavern which caught his eye on the quay. On entering, they found themselves in a large room handsomely decorated, at the end of which was a large campbed furnished with cushions.

invited - zaproszony; zapraszać, prosić

tavern - tawerna, karczma, austeria

handsomely - przystojnie; ładnie, elegancko

decorated - udekorowany; dekorować, zdobić

cushions - poduszki; poduszka, poduszka, banda

Several persons lay upon this bed in a deep sleep. At the small tables which were arranged about the room some thirty customers were drinking English beer, porter, gin and brandy; smoking, the while, long red clay pipes stuffed with little balls of opium mingled with essence of rose.

deep sleep - głęboki sen

smoking - (smoke) palić, dymić; palenie

pipes - rury; piszczałka, fujarka, piszczałka, rura, rurki-p, potok

stuffed - wypchane; rzeczy, bambetle, wypchać, napchać, nadziewać

essence - esencja

From time to time one of the smokers, overcome with the narcotic, would slip under the table, whereupon the waiters, taking him by the head and feet, carried and laid him upon the bed. The bed already supported twenty of these stupefied sots.

smokers - palaczy; palacz, palaczka, palący, paląca, fajczarz, fajczarka

narcotic - narkotyk; środek nasenny; narkotyczny

Fix and Passepartout saw that they were in a smoking house haunted by those wretched, cadaverous, idiotic creatures to whom the English merchants sell every year the miserable drug called opium, to the amount of one million four hundred thousand pounds"thousands devoted to one of the most despicable vices which afflict humanity!

cadaverous - zwłoki; trupi

idiotic - idiotyczny

drug - narkotyk, lekarstwo

despicable - podły; nikczemny

vices - wady; wada, zły nawyk, występek, imadło, wice

afflict - dotykać, dręczyć

The Chinese government has in vain attempted to deal with the evil by stringent laws. It passed gradually from the rich, to whom it was at first exclusively reserved, to the lower classes, and then its ravages could not be arrested. Opium is smoked everywhere, at all times, by men and women, in the Celestial Empire.

evil - zło; zły; źle

stringent - rygorystyczny, surowy, przekonywający

exclusively - wyłącznie

lower classes - niższe klasy

ravages - dewastacja, niszczyć, plądrować, pustoszenie, pustoszyć

smoked - wędzone; palić, dymić; palenie, dym

Once accustomed to it, the victims cannot dispense with it, except by suffering horrible bodily contortions and agonies. A great smoker can smoke as many as eight pipes a day, but he dies in five years. It was in one of these dens that Fix and Passepartout, in search of a friendly glass, found themselves.

accustomed - przyzwyczajony; przyzwyczajać, przyzwyczaić

dispense with - dać sobie z czymś spokój, obyć się bez czegoś, darować sobie coś

dens - nory; (den) legowisko, nora, kryjówka

Passepartout had no money, but willingly accepted Fix's invitation in the hope of returning the obligation at some future time.

invitation - zaproszenie

obligation - obowiązek, zobowiązanie

They ordered two bottles of port, to which the Frenchman did ample justice, while Fix observed him with close attention. They chatted about the journey, and Passepartout was especially merry at the idea that Fix was going to continue it with them. When the bottles were empty, however, he rose to go and tell his master of the change in the time of the sailing of the Carnatic.

empty - pusty, próżny, opróżnić

Fix caught him by the arm, and said, "Wait a moment."

"What for, Mr. Fix?"

"I want to have a serious talk with you."

"A serious talk!" cried Passepartout, drinking up the little wine that was left in the bottom of his glass. "Well, we'll talk about it tomorrow. I haven't time now."

drinking up - wypić do dna, wypić wszystko; dopić coś, skończyć coś pić (np. filiżankę kawy)

"Stay! What I have to say concerns your master."

Passepartout, at this, looked attentively at his companion. Fix's face seemed to have a singular expression. He resumed his seat.

attentively - uważnie, bacznie

"What is it that you have to say?"

Fix placed his hand upon Passepartout's arm, and, lowering his voice, said, "You have guessed who I am?"

lowering - obniżenie; (lower) obniżać, redukować; opuszczenie

"Parbleu!" said Passepartout, smiling.

"Then I'm going to tell you everything""

"Now that I know everything, my friend! Ah! that's very good. But go on, go on. First, though, let me tell you that those gentlemen have put themselves to a useless expense."

"Useless!" said Fix. "You speak confidently. It's clear that you don't know how large the sum is."

confidently - pewnie

"Of course I do," returned Passepartout. "Twenty thousand pounds."

"Fifty-five thousand!" answered Fix, pressing his companion's hand.

pressing - naciskając; (press) naciskać, przyciskać, przygniatać, prasować

"What!" cried the Frenchman. "Has Monsieur Fogg dared"fifty-five thousand pounds! Well, there's all the more reason for not losing an instant," he continued, getting up hastily.

getting up - wstać z łóżka; podnieść; podnosić się (do pozycji pionowej), wstawać, wstać; wzmagać się (np. wiatr)

Fix pushed Passepartout back in his chair, and resumed: "Fifty-five thousand pounds, and if I succeed, I get two thousand pounds. If you'll help me, I'll let you have five hundred of them."

"Help you?" cried Passepartout, whose eyes were standing wide open.

"Yes, help me keep Mr. Fogg here for two or three days."

"Why, what are you saying? Those gentlemen are not satisfied with following my master and suspecting his honor, but they must try to put obstacles in his way! I blush for them!"

suspecting - podejrzewając; podejrzewać, podejrzany, podejrzana, podejrzany

blush - rumienić się, zaczerwienić się; rumieniec, róż do policzków

"What do you mean?"

"I mean that it is a piece of shameful trickery. They might as well waylay Mr. Fogg and put his money in their pockets!"

shameful - haniebne; haniebny

trickery - oszustwo, podstęp

waylay - czaić się, napaść z zasadzki

"That's just what we count on doing."

count - liczyć, zaliczać, brać pod uwagę; liczba, hrabia

"It's a conspiracy, then," cried Passepartout, who became more and more excited as the liquor mounted in his head, for he drank without perceiving it. "A real conspiracy! And gentlemen, too. Bah!"

conspiracy - spisek, konspiracja, knucie, zmowa

more excited - bardziej podekscytowany

Bah - nonsens, bzdura

Fix began to be puzzled.

"Members of the Reform Club!" continued Passepartout. "You must know, Monsieur Fix, that my master is an honest man, and that, when he makes a wager, he tries to win it fairly!"

"But who do you think I am?" asked Fix, looking at him intently.

"Parbleu! An agent of the members of the Reform Club, sent out here to interrupt my master's journey. But, though I found you out some time ago, I've taken good care to say nothing about it to Mr. Fogg."

"He knows nothing, then?"

"Nothing," replied Passepartout, again emptying his glass. The detective passed his hand across his forehead, hesitating before he spoke again. What should he do? Passepartout's mistake seemed sincere, but it made his design more difficult. It was evident that the servant was not the master's accomplice, as Fix had been inclined to suspect.

emptying - (empty) pustoszeć; opróżnianie

hesitating - wahasz się; wahać się, jąkać się

sincere - szczery

suspect - podejrzewać; podejrzany, podejrzana

"Well," said the detective to himself, "as he is not an accomplice, he will help me."

He had no time to lose. Fogg must be detained at Hong Kong, so he resolved to make a clean breast of it.

"Listen to me," said Fix abruptly. "I am not, as you think, an agent of the members of the Reform Club""

abruptly - nagle, raptem, bezceremonialnie, improwizując

"Bah!" retorted Passepartout, with an air of raillery.

raillery - drwiny, przekomarzanie się

"I am a police detective, sent out here by the London office."

"You, a detective?"

"I will prove it. Here is my commission."

commission - komisja; prowizja; zlecać, zlecić

Passepartout was speechless with astonishment when Fix displayed this document, the genuineness of which could not be doubted.

displayed - wyświetlane; wyświetlacz, wyświetlać

genuineness - autentyczność, autentyzm, szczerość, prawdziwość

doubted - wątpił; wątpić, zwątpić, powątpiewać, wątpliwość

"Mr. Fogg's wager," resumed Fix, "is only a pretext, of which you and the gentlemen of the Reform are dupes. He had a motive for securing your innocent complicity."

dupes - duplikaty; nabierać, oszukać, oszukiwać; gapa, ofiara

motive - motyw, temat

securing - zabezpieczenie; bezpieczny, bezpieczny, bezpieczny, bezpieczny

complicity - współudział

"But why?"

"Listen. On the 28th of last September a robbery of fifty-five thousand pounds was committed at the Bank of England by a person whose description was fortunately secured. Here is this description. It answers exactly to that of Mr. Phileas Fogg."

fortunately - szczęśliwie; na szczęście

"What nonsense!" cried Passepartout, striking the table with his fist. "My master is the most honorable of men!"

What nonsense - co za bzdury

fist - pięść

"How can you tell? You know scarcely anything about him. You went into his service the day he came away; and he came away on a foolish pretext, without trunks, and carrying a large amount in banknotes. And yet you are bold enough to assert that he is an honest man!"

scarcely anything - ledwo co, prawie nic

foolish - niemądry, głupi

"Yes, yes," repeated the poor fellow, mechanically.

"Would you like to be arrested as his accomplice?"

Passepartout, overcome by what he had heard, held his head between his hands, and did not dare to look at the detective. Phileas Fogg, the saviour of Aouda, that brave and generous man, a robber! And yet how many presumptions there were against him! Passepartout tried to reject the suspicions which forced themselves upon his mind. He did not wish to believe that his master was guilty.

saviour - zbawiciel; wybawca, zbawca

presumptions - przypuszczenie, zarozumiałość, tupet, przesłanka

reject - odrzucać, odrzucić, odrzut

"Well, what do you want of me?" he said, at last, with an effort.

effort - wysiłek, staranie

"See here," replied Fix, "I have tracked Mr. Fogg to this place, but as yet I have failed to receive the warrant of arrest for which I sent to London. You must help me to keep him here in Hong Kong""

"I! But I""

"I will share with you the two thousand pounds reward offered by the Bank of England."

"Never!" replied Passepartout, who tried to rise, but fell back, exhausted in mind and body.

rise - wzrosnąć; wstawać, rosnąć, wstać z martwych, wschodzić; wzrost

"Mr. Fix," he stammered, "even should what you say be true"if my master is really the robber you are seeking for"which I deny"I have been, am, in his service. I have seen his generosity and goodness; and I will never betray him"not for all the gold in the world. I come from a village where they don't eat that kind of bread!"

stammered - zająknął się; jąkać

seeking - poszukiwać, szukać

deny - zaprzeczyć

goodness - dobro, dobroć

"You refuse?"

"I refuse."

"Consider that I've said nothing," said Fix, "and let us drink."

Consider - rozważyć; rozważać; uważać, uznawać, obserwować, baczyć

"Yes, let us drink!"

Passepartout felt himself yielding more and more to the effects of the liquor. Fix, seeing that he must, at all hazards, be separated from his master, wished to entirely overcome him. Some pipes full of opium lay upon the table. Fix slipped one into Passepartout's hand.

hazards - zagrożenia; niebezpieczeństwo

be separated - zostać rozdzielonym

He took it, put it between his lips, lit it, drew several puffs, and his head, becoming heavy under the influence of the narcotic, fell upon the table.

puffs - puffy; dyszeć, sapać, wypuścić dym, pierdnąć; dmuchnięcia

"At last!" said Fix, seeing Passepartout unconscious. "Mr. Fogg will not be informed of the Carnatic's departure, and, if he is, he will have to go without this cursed Frenchman!"

cursed - (curse) kląć, przeklinać; przeklęty

And, after paying his bill, Fix left the tavern.

Chapter 20. In Which Fix Comes Face to Face with Phileas Fogg

While these events were passing at the opium house, Mr. Fogg, unconscious of the danger he was in of losing the steamer, was quietly escorting Aouda about the streets of the English quarter, making the necessary purchases for the long voyage before them. It was all very well for an Englishman like Mr.

danger - niebezpieczeństwo; zagrożenie

escorting - eskortowanie; eskorta, konwój, świta, eskorta

Fogg to make the tour of the world with a carpetbag; a lady could not be expected to travel comfortably under such conditions. He acquitted his task with characteristic serenity, and invariably replied to the objections of his fair companion, who was confused by his patience and generosity. "It is in the interest of my journey"a part of my program."

acquitted - uniewinniony; uniewinnić, uniewinnić od zarzutu

characteristic - charakterystyczny; cecha

serenity - spokój

objections - zastrzeżenia; sprzeciw, sprzeciw

The purchases made, they returned to the hotel, where they dined at a sumptuously served table-d'hote; after which Aouda, shaking hands with her protector after the English fashion, retired to her room for rest. Mr. Fogg absorbed himself throughout the evening in the perusal of The Times and Illustrated London News.

sumptuously - wystawnie, z przepychem, bogato

hote - hotel

perusal - percepcja; staranne czytanie, dokładne przeglądanie

Had he been capable of being astonished at anything, it would have been not to see his servant return at bedtime. But, knowing that the steamer was not to leave for Yokohama until the next morning, he did not disturb himself about the matter. When Passepartout did not appear the next morning to answer his master's bell, Mr.

capable - zdolny; stać

bedtime - pora snu

bell - dzwonek; dzwon

Fogg, not betraying the least vexation, contented himself with taking his carpetbag, calling Aouda, and sending for a palanquin.

vexation - utrapienie, udręka

sending for - wezwać, wzywać (np. po lekarza); wysłać po coś

It was then eight o'clock; at half-past nine, it being then high tide, the Carnatic would leave the harbor. Mr. Fogg and Aouda got into the palanquin, their luggage being brought after on a wheelbarrow, and half an hour later stepped upon the quay where they were to embark. Mr. Fogg then learned that the Carnatic had sailed the evening before.

tide - przypływ; fala, bieg, masa ludzi

wheelbarrow - taczka

stepped - nadepnięty; step

He had expected to find not only the steamer, but his servant, and was forced to give up both; but no sign of disappointment appeared on his face, and he merely remarked to Aouda, "It is an accident, madam, nothing more."

merely - tylko, jedynie, jeno

accident - wypadek

madam - pani; królewna; burdelmama, bajzelmama

At this moment a man who had been observing him attentively approached. It was Fix, who, bowing, addressed Mr. Fogg: "Were you not, like me, sir, a passenger on the Rangoon, which arrived yesterday?"

bowing - kłaniając się; (bow) zginać się, ukłonić się, kłaniać się; łuk

"I was, sir," replied Mr. Fogg coldly. "But I have not the honor -"

"Pardon me. I thought I should find your servant here."

Pardon - słucham; przebaczenie, wybaczenie, darowanie, łaska

"Do you know where he is, sir?" asked Aouda anxiously.

anxiously - z niepokojem, z niecierpliwością

"What!" responded Fix, feigning surprise. "Is he not with you?"

feigning - (feign) symulować, udawać; udawanie

"No," said Aouda. "He has not made his appearance since yesterday. Could he have gone on board the Carnatic without us?"

"Without you, madam?" answered the detective. "Excuse me, did you intend to sail in the Carnatic?"

intend - zamierzają; zamierzać; zamierzać

"Yes, sir."

"So did I, madam, and I am excessively disappointed. The Carnatic, its repairs being completed, left Hong Kong twelve hours before the stated time, without any notice being given. We must now wait a week for another steamer."

excessively - nadmiernie, przesadnie, w nadmiarze

stated - stwierdził; państwo

notice - awizo; wymówienie; zauważać, zauważyć

As he said "a week" Fix felt his heart leap for joy. Fogg detained at Hong Kong for a week! There would be time for the warrant to arrive, and fortune at last favored the representative of the law. His horror may be imagined when he heard Mr. Fogg say, in his placid voice, "But there are other vessels besides the Carnatic, it seems to me, in the harbor of Hong Kong."

leap - skoczyć, przeskoczyć, skakać; skok

placid - łagodny, spokojny

And, offering his arm to Aouda, he directed his steps towards the docks in search of some craft about to start. Fix, stupefied, followed. It seemed as if he were attached to Mr. Fogg by an invisible thread. Chance, however, appeared really to have abandoned the man it had hitherto served so well.

invisible - niewidoczny, niewidzialny

For three hours Phileas Fogg wandered about the docks, with the determination, if necessary, to charter a vessel to carry him to Yokohama; but he could only find vessels which were loading or unloading, and which could not therefore set sail. Fix began to hope again.

determination - determinacja

charter - statut, karta, czarter

unloading - (unload) rozładować, wyładować; rozładunek

But Mr. Fogg, far from being discouraged, was continuing his search, resolved not to stop if he had to resort to Macao, when he was accosted by a sailor on one of the wharves.

discouraged - zniechęcony; zniechęcać, zniechęcić

resort - ośrodek; uciekanie się; kurort

sailor - marynarz, żeglarz, żeglarka

"Is your honor looking for a boat?"

"Have you a boat ready to sail?"

ready to sail - gotowy do wypłynięcia

"Yes, your honor; a pilot boat"No. 43"the best in the harbor."

"Does she go fast?"

"Between eight and nine knots the hour. Will you look at her?"


"Your honor will be satisfied with her. Is it for a sea excursion?"

be satisfied - być zadowolonym; być zaspokojonym {potrzeby}

excursion - wycieczka

"No, for a voyage."

"A voyage?"

"Yes, will you agree to take me to Yokohama?"

The sailor leaned on the railing, opened his eyes wide, and said,

leaned - pochylony; opierać się, przechylić się, odchylić się; szczupły

"Is your honor joking?"

"No. I have missed the Carnatic, and I must get to Yokohama by the 14th at the latest, to take the boat for San Francisco.

"I am sorry," said the sailor, "but it is impossible."

"I offer you a hundred pounds per day, and an additional reward of two hundred pounds if I reach Yokohama in time."

additional - dodatkowe; dodatkowy

"Are you in earnest?"

Are you in earnest? - Mówisz poważnie?; Trudno mi w to uwierzyć

"Very much so."

The pilot walked away a little distance, and gazed out to sea, evidently struggling between the anxiety to gain a large sum and the fear of venturing so far. Fix was in mortal suspense.

venturing - wyruszyć; (venture) ryzykować, odważyć się, narażać; ryzykujący

mortal - śmiertelny; śmiertelnik

Mr. Fogg turned to Aouda and asked her, "You would not be afraid, would you, madam?"

"Not with you, Mr. Fogg," was her answer. The pilot now returned, shuffling his hat in his hands.

shuffling - (shuffle) poprzestawiać, potasować, powłóczyć nogami, szurać

"Well, pilot?" said Mr. Fogg.

"Well, your honor," replied he, "I could not risk myself, my men, or my little boat of scarcely twenty tons on so long a voyage at this time of year. Besides, we could not reach Yokohama in time, for it is sixteen hundred and sixty miles from Hong Kong."

"Only sixteen hundred," said Mr. Fogg.

"It's the same thing."

Fix breathed more freely.

breathed - oddychał; oddychać, odetchnąć, oddychać, oddychać swobodnie

"But," added the pilot, "it might be arranged another way." Fix ceased to breathe at all.

breathe - oddychać, odetchnąć, oddychać swobodnie, wdychać, szeptać

"How?" asked Mr. Fogg.

"By going to Nagasaki, at the extreme south of Japan, or even to Shanghai, which is only eight hundred miles from here. In going to Shanghai we should not be forced to sail wide of the Chinese coast, which would be a great advantage, as the currents run northward, and would aid us."

Shanghai - Szanghaj

currents - prądy; prąd, prąd, natężenie prądu

"Pilot," said Mr. Fogg, "I must take the American steamer at

Yokohama, and not at Shanghai or Nagasaki."

"Why not?" returned the pilot. "The San Francisco steamer does not start from Yokohama. It puts in at Yokohama and Nagasaki, but it starts from Shanghai."

"You are sure of that?"


"And when does the boat leave Shanghai?"

"On the 11th, at seven in the evening. We have, therefore, four days before us, that is ninety-six hours; and in that time, if we had good luck and a southwest wind, and the sea was calm, we could make those eight hundred miles to Shanghai."

"And you could go""

"In an hour. As soon as provisions could be got aboard and the sails put up."

aboard - na pokładzie, na pokład

"It is a bargain. Are you the master of the boat?"

"Yes, John Bunsby, master of the Tankadere."

"Would you like some money?"

"If it would not put your honor out""

"Here are two hundred pounds on account, sir," added Phileas

on account - na kredyt (gdy kupujemy coś, płacąc za to później)

Fogg, turning to Fix, "if you would like to take advantage""

"Thanks, sir; I was about to ask the favor."

"Very well. In half an hour we shall go on board."

"But poor Passepartout?" urged Aouda, who was much disturbed by the servant's disappearance.

disappearance - zniknięcie

"I shall do all I can to find him," replied Phileas Fogg.

While Fix, in a feverish, nervous state, repaired to the pilot boat, the others directed their course to the police-station at Hong Kong. Phileas Fogg there gave Passepartout's description, and left a sum of money to be spent in the search for him.

police-station - (police-station) posterunek policji

The same formalities having been gone through at the French consulate, and the palanquin having stopped at the hotel for the luggage, which had been sent back there, they returned to the wharf.

formalities - formalność

sent back - odesłany z powrotem

wharf - nabrzeże; przystań, keja

It was now three o'clock; and pilot boat No.43, with its crew on board, and its provisions stored away, was ready for departure.

stored - przechowywane; skład, magazyn, zapas, przechowywać, przechować

The Tankadere was a neat little craft of twenty tons, as gracefully built as if she were a racing yacht. Her shining copper sheathing, her galvanized iron-work, her deck, white as ivory, betrayed the pride taken by John Bunsby in making her presentable. Her two masts leaned a trifle backward.

racing yacht - jacht wyścigowy

shining - świecące; wspinać się; goleń

copper - kocioł, miedź; miedziany

sheathing - (sheathe) powlekać; pokrycie, poszycie

galvanized - galwanizować

pride - pycha, zarozumiałość, duma, stado

presentable - reprezentacyjny

backward - tył

She carried brigantine, foresail, storm-jib and standing-jib, and was well rigged for running before the wind; and she seemed capable of brisk speed, which, indeed, she had already proved by gaining several prizes in pilot-boat races. The crew of the Tankadere was composed of John Bunsby, the master, and four hardy mariners, who were familiar with the Chinese seas.

brigantine - brygantyna, zbroja skórzana wzmocniona metalowymi płytkami

foresail - fok (żagiel)

prizes - nagrody; wysoko cenić; nagroda; pierwszorzędny

composed - skomponowany; compos

hardy - wytrzymały

mariners - marynarze; marynarz

John Bunsby, himself, a man of forty-five or thereabouts, vigorous, sunburnt, with a sprightly expression of the eye, and energetic and self-reliant countenance, would have inspired confidence in the most timid.

sunburnt - spalony słońcem; (sunburn); oparzenie słoneczne

sprightly - sprężysty; energiczny, żwawy

energetic - energiczny

reliant - zależny, polegający, bluszczowaty, bluszczowy

most timid - najbardziej nieśmiały, bojaźliwy

Phileas Fogg and Aouda went on board, where they found Fix already installed. Below deck was a square cabin, of which the walls bulged out in the form of cots, above a circular divan; in the center was a table provided with a swinging lamp. The accommodation was confined, but neat.

bulged - wybrzuszony; wypukłość

cots - łóżeczka; łóżeczko dziecinne, łóżko polowe, chata, szopa

divan - tapczan; dywan

center - środek, centrum, ośrodek

provided with - wyposażony

swinging - huśtawka; (swing) kołysać, machać, zawracać, zmieniać

accommodation - zakwaterowanie; przystosowanie, akomodacja

"I am sorry to have nothing better to offer you," said Mr. Fogg to Fix, who bowed without responding.

responding - reagować, zareagować

The detective had a feeling akin to humiliation in profiting by the kindness of Mr. Fogg.

akin - podobny; spokrewniony; pokrewny, zbliżony

humiliation - upokorzenie, poniżenie

kindness - życzliwość, dobroć, łaskawość, benewolencja

"It's certain," thought he, "though rascal he is, he is a polite one!"

polite - uprzejmy, grzeczny

The sails and the English flag were hoisted at ten minutes past three. Mr. Fogg and Aouda, who were seated on deck, cast a last glance at the quay, in the hope of seeing Passepartout. Fix was not without his fears lest chance should direct the steps of the unfortunate servant, whom he had so badly treated, in this direction.

cast - obsada; ciskać, cisnąć, miotać, zarzucać, zarzucić

fears - bać się, obawiać się; strach

badly - źle

In that case an explanation the reverse of satisfactory to the detective would have been necessary. But the Frenchman did not appear, and, without doubt, was still lying under the stupefying influence of the opium. at length John Bunsby, master, gave the order to start, and the Tankadere, taking the wind under her brigantine, foresail and standing-jib, bounded briskly forward over the waves.

the reverse - odwrotność, przeciwieństwo

satisfactory to - satysfakcjonujący, zadowalający (spełniający dane wymogi, do zaakceptowania)

Chapter 21. In Which the Master of the Tankadere Runs Great Risk of Losing a Reward of Two Hundred Pounds

This voyage of eight hundred miles was a perilous venture on a craft of twenty tons, and at that season of the year. The Chinese seas are usually boisterous, subject to terrible gales of wind, especially during the equinoxes, and it was now early November.

perilous - niebezpieczne; niebezpieczny

gales - wichury; dziewczyna, kobieta

equinoxes - równonocy; ekwinokcjum

It would clearly have been to the master's advantage to carry his passengers to Yokohama, since he was paid a certain sum per day. But he would have been rash to attempt such a voyage, and it was imprudent even to attempt to reach Shanghai. But John Bunsby believed in the Tankadere, which rode on the waves like a seagull; and perhaps he was not wrong.

seagull - mewa

Late in the day they passed through the capricious channels of Hong Kong, and the Tankadere, impelled by favorable winds, conducted herself admirably.

admirably - z podziwem

"I do not need, pilot," said Phileas Fogg, when they got into the open sea, "to advise you to use all possible speed."

open sea - otwarte; pełne morze

advise - doradzić; radzić, poradzić

"Trust me, your honor. We are carrying all the sail the wind will let us. The poles would add nothing, and are only used when we are going into port."

poles - słupy; biegun, kijek, tyczka, słup

"It's your trade, not mine, pilot, and I confide in you."

confide - zwierzać się, powierzać

Phileas Fogg, with body erect and legs wide apart, standing like a sailor, gazed without staggering at the swelling waters. The young woman, who was seated aft, was profoundly affected as she looked out upon the ocean, darkening now with the twilight, on which she had ventured in so frail a vessel. Above her head rustled the white sails, which seemed like great white wings.

apart - od siebie; osobno

staggering - (stagger) słaniać się, zataczać się, chwiać się

swelling - opuchlizna, obrzęk

aft - na rufie; (after) po

profoundly - wnikliwie, gruntownie, głęboko, wyjątkowo

affected - dotknięte; oddziaływać, wzruszać, udawać

darkening - ciemnienie; zaciemniać

twilight - zmierzch, zmrok, półmrok, półzmrok

rustled - szelest, szeleścić

wings - skrzydła; skrzydło

The boat, carried forward by the wind, seemed to be flying in the air.

Night came. The moon was entering her first quarter, and her insufficient light would soon die out in the mist on the horizon. Clouds were rising from the east, and already overcast a part of the heavens.

insufficient - niewystarczające; niewystarczający

die out - wymrzeć, wymierać, wygasnąć (np. dynastia), zanikać

mist - zamglić; zamglenie, mgła

overcast - zachmurzenie; pochmurny; zachmurzony

The pilot had hung out his lights, which was very necessary in these seas crowded with vessels bound landward. Collisions are not uncommon occurrences, and, at the speed she was going, the least shock would shatter the gallant little craft.

hung out - spędzać czas; hang something out wywiesić coś na dwór (np. ubrania), rozwieszać

landward - w kierunku lądu; w stronę brzegu, ku lądowi, w stronę lądu

occurrences - zdarzenia; wydarzenie

shock - zaszokować; szok, wstrząs

shatter - niszczyć, rozwiewać, roztrzaskać

Fix, seated in the bow, gave himself up to meditation. He kept apart from his fellow-travelers, knowing Mr. Fogg's taciturn tastes. Besides, he did not quite like to talk to the man whose favors he had accepted. He was thinking, too, of the future.

meditation - medytacja

kept apart - odizolowane, odseparowane, trzymane osobno

It seemed certain that Fogg would not stop at Yokohama, but would at once take the boat for San Francisco; and the vast extent of America would ensure him impunity and safety. Fogg's plan appeared to him the simplest in the world.

extent - zakres; stopień

ensure - zapewnić, zapewniać, upewnić, upewniać

impunity - bezkarność

safety - bezpieczeństwo; zabezpieczenie

simplest - najprostszy; prosty, łatwy, lekki, prostak

Instead of sailing directly from England to the United States, like a common villain, he had traveled three quarters of the globe, so as to gain the American continent more surely. There, after throwing the police off his track, he would quietly enjoy himself with the fortune stolen from the bank. But, once in the United States, what should he, Fix, do? Should he abandon this man?

villain - złoczyńcą; łotr, łajdak, złoczyńca, czarny charakter, złol

throwing - (throw) wyrzucić, rzucić, niedbale położyć; rzucanie

stolen from - skradzione coś komuś

No, a hundred times no! Until he had secured his extradition, he would not lose sight of him for an hour. It was his duty, and he would fulfill it to the end. At all events, there was one thing to be thankful for. Passepartout was not with his master; and it was above all important, after the confidences Fix had imparted to him, that the servant should never have speech with his master.

Duty - obowiązek; służba

fulfill - spełnić; spełniać, wypełniać

thankful - wdzięczny

confidences - zwierzenia; pewność siebie

imparted - przekazane; dzielić się

Phileas Fogg was also thinking of Passepartout, who had so strangely disappeared. Looking at the matter from every point of view, it did not seem to him impossible that, by some mistake, the man might have embarked on the Carnatic at the last moment. This was also Aouda's opinion, who regretted very much the loss of the worthy fellow to whom she owed so much.

They might then find him at Yokohama, for, if the Carnatic was carrying him thither, it would be easy to ascertain if he had been on board.

thither - tam, dotamtąd

A brisk breeze arose about ten o'clock; but, though it might have been prudent to take in a reef, the pilot, after carefully examining the heavens, let the craft remain rigged as before. The Tankadere bore sail admirably, as she drew a great deal of water, and everything was prepared for high speed in case of a gale.

breeze - bryza

reef - refować; rafa

examining - zbadać, sprawdzać, przeprowadzić kontrolę, kontrolować

rigged - sfałszowane

as before - jak wcześniej

Mr. Fogg and Aouda descended into the cabin at midnight, having been already preceded by Fix, who had lain down on one of the cots. The pilot and crew remained on deck all night.

preceded - poprzedzone; poprzedzać, poprzedzić

lain - leżeć, kłamać, znajdować się; kłamstwo

At sunrise the next day, which was 8th November, the boat had made more than one hundred miles. The log indicated a mean speed of between eight and nine miles. The Tankadere still carried all sail, and was accomplishing her greatest capacity of speed. If the wind held as it was, the chances would be in her favor. During the day she kept along the coast, where the currents were favorable.

sunrise - wschód słońca

log - rejestrować, notować; kłoda, dziennik pokładowy, rejestr

capacity - pojemność; zdolność

The coast, regular in profile, and visible sometimes across the clearings, was at most five miles distant. The sea was less violent, since the wind came off land"a fortunate circumstance for the boat, which would suffer, owing to its small tonnage, by a heavy surge on the sea.

profile - profil, zarys

visible - widoczny, widzialny

clearings - polany; poręba

fortunate - szczęśliwy; fortunny

circumstance - okoliczność

suffer - cierpieć, pokutować

tonnage - tonaż

surge - napływ, przypływ, skok napięcia

The breeze subsided a little towards noon, and set in from the southwest. The pilot put up his poles, but took them down again within two hours, as the wind freshened up anew.

subsided - ustąpił; osiadać, osiąść

poles - słupy

freshened - odświeżony; (freshen up) odświeżyć

anew - znowu, ponownie, na nowo, od nowa

Mr. Fogg and Aouda, happily unaffected by the roughness of the sea, ate with a good appetite. Fix was invited to share their repast, and he accepted with secret chagrin. To travel at this man's expense and live upon his provisions was not palatable to him. Still, he was obliged to eat, and so he ate.

unaffected - nienaruszone; niewymuszony, nieporuszony, naturalny, szczery

roughness - chropowatość, brutalność

appetite - apetyt; żądza

repast - uczta; posiłek

When the meal was over, he took Mr. Fogg apart, and said, "sir""this "sir" scorched his lips, and he had to control himself to avoid collaring this "gentleman"""sir, you have been very kind to give me a passage on this boat. But, though my means will not admit of my expending them as freely as you, I must ask to pay my share""

scorched - spalony; przypiekać

collaring - kołnierz, kołnierzyk, obroża, korona

admit of - dopuszczalne; możliwe

expending - wydatkowania; wydatkować, wydawać, zużywać; wydatek

"Let us not speak of that, sir," replied Mr. Fogg.

"But, if I insist""

"No, sir," repeated Mr. Fogg, in a tone which did not admit of a reply. "This enters into my general expenses."

enters into - wchodzić (dokądś); wpisywać w coś; zgodzić się na coś; rozpocząć coś; enter something into something wprowadzić coś do czegoś

Fix, as he bowed, had a stifled feeling, and, going forward, where he ensconced himself, did not open his mouth for the rest of the day.

stifled - stłumiony; dusić, udaremnić, tłumić, spowalniać

ensconced - ukryć

Meanwhile they were progressing famously, and John Bunsby was in high hope. He several times assured Mr. Fogg that they would reach Shanghai in time; to which that gentleman responded that he counted upon it. The crew set to work in good earnest, inspired by the reward to be gained.

progressing - postęp

famously - słynny; znakomicie

assured - zapewniony; (assure) zapewniać, gwarantować

There was not a sheet which was not tightened, not a sail which was not vigorously hoisted; not a lurch could be charged to the man at the helm. They worked as desperately as if they were contesting in a Royal yacht regatta.

sheet - arkusz, kartka (papieru)

tightened - dokręcone; zacieśniać, zacieśniać się

lurch - uchylać się, schodzić na bok

helm - kierować; drążek sterowy

desperately - desperacko

contesting - kwestionowanie; spór, debata, konkurs

yacht - jacht

regatta - regaty

By evening, the log showed that two hundred and twenty miles had been accomplished from Hong Kong. Mr. Fogg might hope that he would be able to reach Yokohama without recording any delay in his journal; in which case, the many misadventures which had overtaken him since he left London would not seriously affect his journey.

recording - nagrywanie; nagranie

misadventures - nieszczęścia; nieszczęśliwy wypadek, niepowodzenie, nieszczęście

overtaken - wyprzedzać, ogarniać, przeganiać

The Tankadere entered the Straits of Fo-Kien, which separate the island of Formosa from the Chinese coast, in the small hours of the night, and crossed the Tropic of Cancer. The sea was very rough in the straits, full of eddies formed by the counter-currents, and the chopping waves broke her course, while it became very difficult to stand on deck.

the small hours - wczesne godziny poranne

Tropic - zwrotnik

Cancer - nowotwór złośliwy, rak

rough - szorstki, zgrubny, chropowaty

eddies - wiry; zawirować, zafalować; wir

counter - opierać, odpierać; lada, bufet, licznik, okienko

chopping - (chop) rąbać, posiekać; kotlet, siekanie, rąbanie, cięcie

At daybreak the wind began to blow hard again, and the heavens seemed to predict a gale. The barometer announced a speedy change, the mercury rising and falling capriciously. The sea also, in the southeast, raised long surges which indicated a tempest. The sun had set the evening before in a red mist, in the midst of the phosphorescent scintillations of the ocean.

daybreak - świt, brzask

blow - dmuchać, wywiać, wiać; cios, dmuchanie, niemile widziany gość

speedy - szybki, rychły, bezzwłoczny

capriciously - kapryśnie

surges - przepięcia; napływ, przypływ, skok napięcia

phosphorescent - fosforyzujący

scintillations - scyntylacje; iskrzenie, scyntylacja

John Bunsby examined the threatening aspect of the heavens, muttering indistinctly between his teeth. At last he said in a low voice to Mr. Fogg, "Shall I speak out to your honor?"

indistinctly - niewyraźnie

"Of course."

"Well, we are going to have a squall."

"Is the wind north or south?" asked Mr. Fogg quietly.

"South. Look! A typhoon is coming up."

typhoon - tajfun

"Glad it's a typhoon from the south, for it will carry us forward."

"Oh, if you take it that way," said John Bunsby, "I've nothing more to say." John Bunsby's suspicions were confirmed. At a less advanced season of the year the typhoon, according to a famous meteorologist, would have passed away like a luminous cascade of electric flame; but in the winter equinox it was to be feared that it would burst upon them with great violence.

meteorologist - meteorolog

luminous - świecić; świetlny, klarowny

cascade - kaskada; kaskadować

flame - płomień; kochanka, kochanek, krytycyzm, ognista czerwień

equinox - ekwinokcjum, równonoc

feared - bać

burst - wybuchnąć; pękać, pęknąć; rozsadzać

The pilot took his precautions in advance. He reefed all sail, the pole-masts were dispensed with; all hands went forward to the bows. A single triangular sail, of strong canvas, was hoisted as a storm-jib, so as to hold the wind from behind. Then they waited.

pole - biegun, kijek, tyczka, słup

dispensed - dyspensować, rozdzielać

bows - łuki; (bow) zginać się, ukłonić się, kłaniać się; kokarda

triangular - trójkątny

John Bunsby had requested his passengers to go below; but this imprisonment in so narrow a space, with little air, and the boat bouncing in the gale, was far from pleasant. Neither Mr. Fogg, Fix, nor Aouda consented to leave the deck. The storm of rain and wind descended upon them towards eight o'clock.

With but its bit of sail, the Tankadere was lifted like a feather by a wind, an idea of whose violence can scarcely be given. To compare her speed to four times that of a locomotive going on full steam would be below the truth.

bit - trochę; kawałek, część, bit; (bite); odgryzać, odgryźć, kąsać

The boat scudded thus northward during the whole day, borne on by monstrous waves, preserving always, fortunately, a speed equal to theirs. Twenty times she seemed almost to be submerged by these mountains of water which rose behind her, but the adroit management of the pilot saved her. The passengers were often bathed in spray, but they submitted to it philosophically.

scudded - płynąć z wiatrem, mknąć, pędzić; pęd, pośpiech; lekkie obłoki

preserving - konserwujące; przetwór, zachować

submerged - zatopić, zanurzyć

adroit - przebiegły, sprytny, zręczny

management - zarząd, kierownictwo, dyrekcja

spray - rozpylać; stroik, mgiełka

submitted - złożony; ulegać, ulec, wygrywać, wygrać

philosophically - filozoficznie

Fix cursed it, but Aouda, with her eyes fastened upon her protector, whose coolness amazed her, showed herself worthy of him, and bravely weathered the storm. As for Phileas Fogg, it seemed just as if the typhoon were a part of his program.

bravely - odważnie; dzielnie

Up to this time the Tankadere had always held her course to the north; but towards evening the wind, veering three quarters, bore down from the northwest. The boat, now lying in the trough of the waves, shook and rolled terribly. The sea struck her with fearful violence. At night the tempest increased in violence.

veering - zawracanie; (veer) skręcać, zmieniać kierunek; skręcając

trough - koryto, żłób, rów, rynna, dolina, niż, zatoka

fearful - przestraszony; strachliwy

John Bunsby saw the approach of darkness and the rising of the storm with dark misgivings. He thought awhile, and then asked his crew if it was not time to slacken speed. After a consultation he approached Mr. Fogg, and said, "I think, your honor, that we should do well to make for one of the ports on the coast."

misgivings - (misgive) powodować strach, wątpliwości

awhile - chwila, przez chwilę, króciutko

"I think so too."

"Ah!" said the pilot. "But which one?"

"I know of but one," returned Mr. Fogg tranquilly.

"And that is""


The pilot, at first, did not seem to comprehend. He could scarcely realize so much determination and tenacity. Then he cried, "Well"yes! Your honor is right. To Shanghai!"

tenacity - wytrwałość

So the Tankadere kept steadily on her northward track.

The night was really terrible. It would be a miracle if the craft did not founder. Twice it would have been all over with her if the crew had not been constantly on the watch. Aouda was exhausted, but did not utter a complaint. More than once Mr. Fogg rushed to protect her from the violence of the waves.

miracle - cud, dziw

founder - tonąć, walić się; założyciel, fundator

Day reappeared. The tempest still raged with undiminished fury, but the wind now returned to the southeast. It was a favorable change, and the Tankadere again bounded forward on this mountainous sea, though the waves crossed each other, and imparted shocks and countershocks which would have crushed a craft less solidly built.

raged - wściekły; wściekłość, szał, amok

undiminished - niezmniejszona

countershocks - przeciwwstrząsy

crushed - zmiażdżony; crush, sympatia, zauroczenie

solidly built - solidnie zbudowany

From time to time the coast was visible through the broken mist, but no vessel was in sight. The Tankadere was alone upon the sea.

There were some signs of a calm at noon, and these became more distinct as the sun descended towards the horizon. The tempest had been as brief as terrific. The passengers, thoroughly exhausted, could now eat a little, and take some repose.

terrific - przerażające; świetny, wspaniały

The night was comparatively quiet. Some of the sails were again hoisted, and the speed of the boat was very good. The next morning at dawn they saw the coast, and John Bunsby was able to assert that they were not one hundred miles from Shanghai. A hundred miles, and only one day to cross them! That very evening Mr. Fogg was due at Shanghai, if he did not wish to miss the steamer to Yokohama.

Had there been no storm, during which several hours were lost, they would be at this moment within thirty miles of their destination.

The wind grew decidedly calmer, and happily the sea fell with it. All sails were now hoisted, and at noon the Tankadere was within forty-five miles of Shanghai. There remained yet six hours in which to accomplish that distance. All on board feared that it could not be done, and every one"Phileas Fogg, no doubt, excepted"felt his heart beat with impatience.

decidedly - zdecydowanie

calmer - spokojniejszy; spokojny, opanowany, cichy, spokojny, spokojny

feared - bać się, obawiać się; strach

excepted - wykluczać, wykluczyć, z wyjątkiem, oprócz, poza tym

The boat must keep up an average of nine miles an hour, and the wind was becoming calmer every moment! It was a capricious breeze, coming from the coast, and after it passed the sea became smooth.

average - średnia; średni, przeciętny

smooth - gładki

Still, the Tankadere was so light, and her fine sails caught the fickle zephyrs so well, that, with the aid of the current, John Bunsby found himself at six o'clock not more than ten miles from the mouth of Shanghai River. Shanghai itself is situated at least twelve miles up the stream. At seven they were still three miles from Shanghai.

fickle - kapryśny, zmienny

zephyrs - zefiry; zefir

current - prąd, natężenie prądu, bieżący, aktualny, obecny

The pilot swore an angry oath; the reward of two hundred pounds was evidently on the point of escaping him. He looked at Mr. Fogg. Mr. Fogg was perfectly tranquil, yet his whole fortune was at this moment at stake.

swore - przysięgał; przysięgać, przeklinać

oath - przysięga; klątwa

escaping - wydostawać się, wydostać się, unikać, uniknąć, ucieczka

At this moment, also, a long black funnel, crowned with wreaths of smoke, appeared on the edge of the waters. It was the American steamer, leaving for Yokohama at the appointed time.

funnel - lejek

wreaths - wieńce; kłąb, wianek, wieniec, zawój, wieńczyć

appointed time - wyznaczony czas

"Confound her!" cried John Bunsby, pushing back the rudder with a desperate jerk.

Confound - wprawić w zakłopotanie, pomylić, pomieszać szyki

pushing back - odpychać kogoś; przekładać na potem (np. spotkanie)

rudder - ster; ster kierunku

desperate - zdesperowany

jerk - palant; szarpać, pchać, cisnąć; szarpnięcie, nagły ruch

"Signal her!" said Phileas Fogg quietly.

A small brass cannon stood on the forward deck of the Tankadere for making signals in the fogs. It was loaded to the muzzle, but just as the pilot was about to apply a red-hot coal to the touchhole, Mr. Fogg said, "Hoist your flag!"

cannon - armata, działo, karambol

signals - sygnały; sygnał, sygnał

muzzle - pysk, ryj, morda, kaganiec, wylot

apply - aplikować, oddziaływać, zastosować

touchhole - otwór dotykowy; otwór zapałowy

Hoist - podnośnik; podnosić, podnieść, wciągać, wciągnąć

The flag was run up at half-mast, and, this being the signal of distress, it was hoped that the American steamer, perceiving it, would change her course a little, so as to help the pilot boat.

run up - podbiec; powiększać dług, powiększać zadłużenie

mast - maszt

distress - niepokój; zagrożenie, niebezpieczeństwo

"Fire!" said Mr. Fogg. And the booming of the little cannon resounded in the air.

booming - (boom) wydawać głęboki, długi donośny dźwięk; gwałtowny wzrost

resounded - rozbrzmiewał; dudnić, dźwięczeć, rozbrzmiewać

Convenient - wygodne; dogodny

The Carnatic, setting sail from Hong Kong at half-past six on the 7th of November, directed her course at full steam towards Japan. She carried a large cargo and a well-filled cabin of passengers. Two state-rooms in the rear were, however, unoccupied"those which had been engaged by Phileas Fogg.

cargo - ładunek

unoccupied - niezamieszkane

The next day a passenger with a half-stupefied eye, staggering gait and disordered hair, was seen to emerge from the second cabin, and to totter to a seat on deck.

disordered - nieuporządkowany; nieporządek, nieład, bezład, zaburzenie

emerge from - wychodzić z czegoś (np. z trudnego rozwodu); wyłaniać się z czegoś

totter - kiwać się, iść chwiejnym krokiem; zataczanie, kołysanie

It was Passepartout. What had happened to him was as follows. Shortly after Fix left the opium den, two waiters had lifted the unconscious Passepartout, and had carried him to the bed reserved for the smokers. Three hours later, pursued even in his dreams by a fixed idea, the poor fellow awoke, and struggled against the stupefying influence of the narcotic.

den - legowisko, melina, kryjówka, spokój, pokój

awoke - obudził się; budzić się, uświadomić sobie, obudzić; przebudzony

struggled - walczył; walka, bój, bitwa, walczyć, bić

The thought of a duty unfulfilled shook off his torpor, and he hurried from the abode of drunkenness. Staggering and holding himself up by keeping against the walls, falling down and creeping up again, and irresistibly impelled by a kind of instinct, he kept crying out, "The Carnatic! the Carnatic!"

unfulfilled - niespełniony

The steamer lay puffing alongside the quay, on the point of starting. Passepartout had but few steps to go; and, rushing upon the plank, he crossed it, and fell unconscious on the deck, just as the Carnatic was moving off.

alongside - obok; wzdłuż

plank - deska

Several sailors, who were evidently accustomed to this sort of scene, carried the poor Frenchman down into the second cabin, and Passepartout did not wake until they were one hundred and fifty miles away from China. Thus he found himself the next morning on the deck of the Carnatic, and eagerly inhaling the exhilarating sea breeze. The pure air sobered him.

inhaling - wdychanie; wdychać, inhalować, wziewać, wdychać

exhilarating - ekscytujące; rozweselić

He began to collect his sense, which he found a difficult task, but at last he recalled the events of the evening before, Fix's revelation, and the opium house.

collect - kolekcjonować, zbierać; zebrane

revelation - objawienie

"It is evident," he said to himself, "that I have been abominably drunk! What will Mr. Fogg say? At least I have not missed the steamer, which is the most important thing."

abominably - obrzydliwie

Then, as Fix occurred to him: "As for that rascal, I hope we are well rid of him, and that he has not dared, as he proposed, to follow us on board the Carnatic. A detective on the track of Mr. Fogg, accused of robbing the Bank of England! Pshaw! Mr. Fogg is no more a robber than I am a murderer." Should he divulge Fix's real errand to his master?

rid - uwalniać, pozbawić

robbing - okradanie; okraść, obrabować

murderer - morderca, morderczyni, zabójca, zabójczyni

Would it do to tell the part the detective was playing? Would it not be better to wait until Mr. Fogg reached London again, and then impart to him that an agent of the metropolitan police had been following him round the world, and have a good laugh over it? No doubt, at least, it was worth considering. The first thing to do was to find Mr. Fogg, and apologize for his singular behavior.

metropolitan - metropolita; metropolitalny, stołeczny

apologize - przepraszać, przeprosić, apologizować

behavior - zachowanie, behawior, postępowanie, maniery

Passepartout got up and proceeded, as well as he could with the rolling of the steamer, to the afterdeck. He saw no one who resembled either his master or Aouda. "Good!" muttered he; "Aouda has not gotten up yet, and Mr. Fogg has probably found some partners at whist."

afterdeck - pokład rufowy

gotten up - wstać z łóżka; podnieść; podnosić się (do pozycji pionowej), wstawać, wstać; wzmagać się (np. wiatr)

He descended to the saloon. Mr. Fogg was not there. Passepartout had only, however, to ask the purser the number of his master's stateroom. The purser replied that he did not know any passenger by the name of Fogg.

stateroom - kabina; sala recepcyjna

"I beg your pardon," said Passepartout persistently. "He is a tall gentleman, quiet and not very talkative, and has with him a young lady""

beg - błagać, prosić, żebrać

persistently - uporczywie

talkative - gadatliwy, rozmowny

"There is no young lady on board," interrupted the purser. "Here is a list of the passengers. You may see for yourself."

Passepartout scanned the list, but his master's name was not upon it. All at once an idea struck him.

scanned - zeskanowany; skanować, zeskanować, skanowanie

"Ah! Am I on the Carnatic?"


"On the way to Yokohama?"


Passepartout had for an instant feared that he was on the wrong boat; but, though he was really on the Carnatic, his master was not there. He fell thunderstruck on a seat. He saw it all now. He remembered that the time of sailing had been changed, that he should have informed his master of that fact, and that he had not done so. It was his fault, then, that Mr.

thunderstruck - porażony piorunem

fault - wada, defekt, błąd, pomyłka, wina, uskok

Fogg and Aouda had missed the steamer. Yes, but it was still more the fault of the traitor who, in order to separate him from his master, and detain the latter at Hong Kong, had inveigled him into getting drunk! He now saw the detective's trick, and at this moment Mr. Fogg was certainly ruined, his bet was lost, and he himself perhaps arrested and imprisoned!

traitor - zdrajca, zdrajczyni, zaprzaniec, sprzedawczyk

inveigled - wciągnięty; wabić

getting drunk - upić się

At this thought Passepartout tore his hair. Ah, if Fix ever came within his reach, what a settling of accounts there would be!

settling - osiedlenie się; (settle) rozstrzygać, osiedlać się

accounts - konta; sprawozdanie, konto, rachunek, księgowość, relacja

After his first depression, Passepartout became calmer, and began to study his situation. It was certainly not an enviable one. He found himself on the way to Japan, and what should he do when he got there? His pocket was empty. He had not a solitary shilling"not so much as a penny.

depression - depresja

enviable - godny pozazdroszczenia

shilling - szyling; (shill); słup

penny - grosz

His passage had fortunately been paid for in advance, and he had five or six days in which to decide upon his future course. He fell to at meals with an appetite, and ate for Mr. Fogg, Aouda, and himself. He helped himself as generously as if Japan were a desert, where nothing to eat was to be looked for.

generously - hojnie

desert - opuścić, porzucić, zostawić; pustynia

At dawn on the 13th the Carnatic entered the port of Yokohama. This is an important port of call in the Pacific, where all the mail-steamers, and those carrying travelers between North America, China, Japan and the Oriental islands put in.

It is situated in the bay of Yeddo, and at but a short distance from that second capital of the Japanese Empire, and the residence of the Tycoon, the civil Emperor, before the Mikado, the spiritual Emperor, absorbed his office in his own. The Carnatic anchored at the quay near the customhouse, in the midst of a crowd of ships bearing the flags of all nations.

Tycoon - potentat; magnat

Emperor - imperator, cesarz

spiritual - duchowy

customhouse - urząd celny

flags - flagi; oznakować, zaznaczać; flaga

Passepartout went timidly ashore on this so curious territory of the Sons of the Sun. He had nothing better to do than, taking chance for his guide, to wander aimlessly through the streets of Yokohama. He found himself at first in a thoroughly European quarter, the houses having low fronts, and being adorned with verandas, beneath which he caught glimpses of neat peristyles.

timidly - nieśmiało

wander - wędrować; włóczyć

aimlessly - bez celu; bezcelowo, bezprzedmiotowo

verandas - werandy; weranda

This quarter occupied, with its streets, squares, docks and warehouses, all the space between the "promontory of the Treaty" and the river.

warehouses - magazyny; magazyn, skład, magazynować

The Frenchman felt himself as much alone among them as if he had dropped down in the midst of Hottentots.

Hottentots - Hottentot

He had, at least, one resource"to call on the French and English consuls at Yokohama for assistance. But he shrank from telling the story of his adventures, intimately connected as it was with that of his master; and, before doing so, he determined to exhaust all other means of aid.

As chance did not favor him in the European quarter, he penetrated that inhabited by the native Japanese, determined, if necessary, to push on to Yeddo.

The Japanese quarter of Yokohama is called Benten, after the goddess of the sea, who is worshipped on the islands round about. There Passepartout beheld beautiful fir and cedar groves, sacred gates of a singular architecture, bridges half hid in the midst of bamboos and reeds, temples shaded by immense cedar-trees.

He saw holy retreats where there were sheltered Buddhist priests and sectaries of Confucius, and interminable streets, where a perfect harvest of rose-tinted and red-cheeked children, who looked as if they had been cut out of Japanese screens, and who were playing in the midst of short-legged poodles and yellowish cats, had been gathered.

The streets were crowded with people.

Priests were passing in processions, beating their dreary tambourines; police and custom-house officers with pointed hats encrusted with lace, and carrying two sabres hung to their waists; soldiers, clad in blue cotton with white stripes, and bearing guns; the Mikado's guards, enveloped in silken doubles, hauberks and coats of mail; and numbers of military folk of all ranks"for the military profession is as much respected in Japan as it is despised in China"went hither and thither in groups and pairs. Passepartout saw, too, begging friars, long-robed pilgrims and simple civilians, with their warped and jet-black hair, big heads, long busts, slender legs, short stature and complexions varying from copper-color to a dead white, but never yellow, like the Chinese, from whom the Japanese widely differ. He did not fail to observe the curious equipages"carriages and palanquins, barrows supplied with sails and litters made of bamboo; nor the women"whom he thought not especially handsome"who took little steps with their little feet, upon which they wore canvas shoes, straw sandals and clogs of worked wood, and who displayed tight-looking eyes, flat chests, teeth fashionably blackened and gowns crossed with silken scarfs, tied in an enormous knot behind"an ornament which the modern Parisian ladies seem to have borrowed from the dames of Japan.

Passepartout wandered for several hours in the midst of this motley crowd, looking in at the windows of the rich and curious shops, the jewelry establishments glittering with quaint Japanese ornaments, the restaurants decked with streamers and banners, the teahouses, where the odorous beverage was being drunk with saki, a liquor concocted from the fermentation of rice, and the comfortable smoking houses, where they were puffing, not opium, which is almost unknown in Japan, but a very fine, stringy tobacco. He went on till he found himself in the fields, in the midst of vast rice plantations. There he saw dazzling camellias expanding themselves, with flowers which were giving forth their last colors and perfumes, not on bushes, but on trees, and within bambooenclosures, cherry, plum and apple trees, which the Japanese cultivate rather for their blossoms than their fruit, and which queerly-fashioned, grinning scarecrows protected from the sparrows, pigeons, ravens and other voracious birds. On the branches of the cedars were perched large eagles. Amid the foliage of the weeping willows were herons, solemnly standing on one leg. On every hand were crows, ducks, hawks, wild birds and a multitude of cranes, which the Japanese consider sacred, and which to their minds symbolize long life and prosperity.

But, on smelling them, he found that they were odorless.

"No chance there," thought he.

No chance - nie ma szans, bez szans

The worthy fellow had certainly taken good care to eat as hearty a breakfast as possible before leaving the Carnatic; but, as he had been walking about all day, the demands of hunger were growing. He observed that the butchers'stalls contained neither mutton, goat, nor pork.

Knowing also that it is a sacrilege to kill cattle, which are preserved solely for farming, he made up his mind that meat was far from plentiful in Yokohama"nor was he mistaken. In default of butcher's meat, he could have wished for a quarter of wild boar or deer, a partridge, or some quails, some game or fish, which, with rice, the Japanese eat almost exclusively.

But he found it necessary to keep up a stout heart, and to postpone the meal he craved till the following morning. Night came, and Passepartout re-entered the native quarter, where he wandered through the streets, lit by vari-colored lanterns. He looked on at the dancers, who were executing skillful steps and boundings, and the astrologers who stood in the open air with their telescopes.

Then he came to the harbor, which was lit up by the resin torches of the fishermen, who were fishing from their boats.

resin - żywica

fishermen - rybacy; rybak

The streets at last became quiet. The patrol, the officers, in splendid costumes, and surrounded by their suites, succeeded the bustling crowd. Passepartout thought they seemed like ambassadors.

Chapter 23. In Which Passepartout's Nose Becomes Outrageously Long

The next morning poor, jaded, famished Passepartout said to himself that he must get something to eat at all hazards, and the sooner he did so the better. He might, indeed, sell his watch; but he would have starved first. Now or never he must use the strong, if not melodious voice which nature had bestowed upon him.

jaded - znużony; jadeit; zielonkawy

starved - zagłodzony; głodować

melodious - melodyjny

He knew several French and English songs, and resolved to try them upon the Japanese, who must be lovers of music, since they were forever pounding on their cymbals, tam-tams and tambourines. They could not but appreciate European talent.

tams - Tam

appreciate - doceniać, docenić, zdawać sobie sprawę, zdać sobie sprawę

talent - talent, dar, zdolność

It was, perhaps, rather early in the morning to get up a concert, and the audience prematurely aroused from their slumbers, might not possibly pay their entertainer with coin bearing the Mikado's features. Passepartout therefore decided to wait several hours. As he was sauntering along, it occurred to him that he would seem rather too well dressed for a wandering artist.

audience - publiczność; widownia, publika, audytorium, audiencja

The idea struck him to change his garments for clothes more in harmony with his project. In this manner he might also get a little money to satisfy the immediate cravings of hunger. The resolution taken, it remained to carry it out.

It was only after a long search that Passepartout discovered a native dealer in old clothes, to whom he applied for an exchange. The man liked the European costume, and before long Passepartout left his shop dressed in an old Japanese coat, and a sort of one-sided turban, faded from long use. A few small pieces of silver, moreover, jingled in his pocket.

"Good!" thought he. "I will imagine I am at the Carnival!"

His first care, after being thus "Japanesed," was to enter a teahouse of modest appearance, and, upon half a bird and a little rice, to breakfast like a man for whom dinner was as yet a problem to be solved.

teahouse - herbaciarnia

solved - rozwiązany; rozwiązywać, rozwiązać

"Now," he thought, after he had eaten heartily, "I mustn't lose my head. I can't sell this costume again for one still more Japanese. I must consider how to leave this country of the Sun, of which I shall not retain the most delightful of memories, as quickly as possible."

mustn - nie wolno

retain - zachowywać, zatrzymywać, gromadzić

most delightful - najbardziej zachwycający; rozkoszny

It occurred to him to visit the steamers which were about to leave for America. He would offer himself as a cook or servant, in payment of his passage and meals. Once at San Francisco, he would find some means of going on. The difficulty was, how to travel the four thousand seven hundred miles of the Pacific which lay between Japan and the New World.

payment - zapłata, wypłata, opłata, płatność

Passepartout was not the man to let an idea go begging, and directed his steps towards the docks. But, as he approached them, his project, which at first had seemed so simple, began to grow more and more formidable to his mind. What need would they have of a cook or servant on an American steamer, and what confidence would they put in him, dressed as he was? What references could he give?

go begging - żebrać; być niechcianym, być nieużywanym (coś, co można zabrać, bo nikt tego nie chce)

references - referencje; referencja, odnosić się do

As he was reflecting in this wise, his eyes fell upon an immense placard which a sort of clown was carrying through the streets. This placard, which was in English, read as follows:

"The United States!" said Passepartout. "That's just what I want!"

He followed the clown, and soon found himself once more in the Japanese quarter. A quarter of an hour later he stopped before a large cabin, adorned with several clusters of streamers, the exterior walls of which were designed to represent, in violent colors and without perspective, a company of jugglers.

clusters - klastry; skupisko

represent - reprezentować, symbolizować, przedstawiać

perspective - punkt widzenia, perspektywa

jugglers - żonglerzy; żongler, kuglarz, oszust

This was the Honorable William Batulcar's establishment.

"What do you want?" said he to Passepartout, whom he at first took for a native.

"Would you like a servant, sir?" asked Passepartout.

"A servant!" cried Mr. Batulcar, caressing the thick grey beard which hung from his chin. "I already have two who are obedient and faithful, have never left me, and serve me for their nourishment"and here they are," added he, holding out his two robust arms, furrowed with veins as large as the strings of a bass viol.

Japanese than I am a monkey! Why are you dressed up in that way?"

"A man dresses as he can."

"That's true. You are a Frenchman, aren't you?"

"Yes. A Parisian of Paris."

"Then you ought to know how to make grimaces?"

"Why," replied Passepartout, a little vexed that his nationality should cause this question, "we Frenchmen know how to make grimaces, it is true"but not any better than the Americans do."

vexed - drażnić, irytować, męczyć

nationality - narodowość (''ethnicity''); obywatelstwo (''citizenship'')

Frenchmen - francuzi; Francuz

"True. Well, if I can't take you as a servant, I can as a clown. You see, my friend, in France they exhibit foreign clowns, and in foreign parts French clowns."

foreign - obcy, zagraniczny, cudzoziemski


"You are pretty strong, eh?"

"Especially after a good meal."

"And you can sing?"

"Yes," returned Passepartout, who had formerly sung in street concerts.

"But can you sing standing on your head, with a top spinning on your left foot, and a sabre balanced on your right?"

spinning - kręcić; przędzenie

sabre - szabla

"Humph! I think so," replied Passepartout, recalling the exercises of his younger days.

recalling - przypominając sobie; przywołanie

"Well, that's enough," said the Honorable William Batulcar.

The engagement was concluded there and then.

engagement - zaangażowanie; zaręczyny

Passepartout had at last found something to do. He was engaged to act in the celebrated Japanese troupe. It was not a very dignified position, but within a week he would be on his way to San Francisco.

dignified - godny; uczcić

The performance, so noisily announced by the Honorable Mr. Batulcar, was to commence at three o'clock, and soon the deafening instruments of a Japanese orchestra resounded at the door.

noisily - głośno

commence - zacząć; poczać, poczynać

deafening - ogłuszający; (deafen); ogłuszać, ogłuszyć

orchestra - orkiestra; orchestra

Passepartout, though he had not been able to study or rehearse a part, was designated to lend the aid of his sturdy shoulders in the great exhibition of the "human pyramid," executed by the Long Noses of the god Tingou. This "great attraction" was to close the performance.

Before three o'clock the large shed was crowded with spectators, Europeans and natives, Chinese and Japanese, men, women and children, who precipitated themselves upon the narrow benches and into the boxes opposite the stage. The musicians took up a position inside, and were vigorously performing on their gongs, tam-tams, flutes, bones, tambourines and immense drums.

The performance was much like all acrobatic displays. But it must be confessed that the Japanese are the first equilibrists in the world.

One, with a fan and some bits of paper, performed the graceful trick of the butterflies and the flowers. Another traced in the air, with the odorous smoke of his pipe, a series of blue words, which composed a compliment to the audience.

butterflies - motyle; motyl

pipe - piszczałka, fujarka, rura, rurki, potok, kreska pionowa

series - seria, cykl, serial, szereg

compliment - komplement, pochwała, pochlebstwo

A third juggled with some lighted candles, which he extinguished successively as they passed his lips, and relit again without interrupting for an instant his juggling. Another reproduced the most singular combinations with a spinning-top. In his hands the revolving tops seemed to be animated with a life of their own in their interminable whirling.

They ran over pipe-stems, the edges of sabres, wires and even hairs stretched across the stage. They turned around on the edges of large glasses, crossed bamboo ladders, dispersed into all the corners, and produced strange musical effects by the combination of their various pitches of tone.

ran over - przelewać się, wylewać się (np. o szklance wody); przekraczać (np. budżet); przejechać po czymś; kimś; powtarzać (np. wiersz, przemowę); wytłumaczyć coś ponownie

The jugglers tossed them in the air, threw them like shuttlecocks with wooden battledores, and yet they kept on spinning; they put them into their pockets, and took them out still whirling as before.

tossed - podrzucony; rzut, rzucenie

shuttlecocks - wahadłowce; lotka

wooden - drewniane; drewniany

battledores - kijanka

It is useless to describe the astonishing performances of the acrobats and gymnasts. The turning on ladders, poles, balls, barrels, etc., was executed with wonderful precision.

astonishing - zadziwiające; zdumiewać, zdumieć

turning on - włączać (światło), odkręcać (kurek), uruchamiać (urządzenie); włączyć coś, podłączać coś

barrels - beczki; beczka, lufa

etc - itd

But the principal attraction was the exhibition of the Long

Noses, a show to which Europe is as yet a stranger.

The Long Noses form a peculiar company, under the direct patronage of the god Tingou. Attired after the fashion of the Middle Ages, they bore upon their shoulders a splendid pair of wings. But what especially distinguished them was the long noses which were fastened to their faces, and the uses which they made of them.

Attired - ubrany; strój, ubiór

Middle Ages - Średniowiecze

These noses were made of bamboo, and were five, six and even ten feet long, some straight, others curved, some ribboned and some having imitation warts upon them. It was upon these appendages, fixed tightly on their real noses, that they performed their gymnastic exercises.

ribboned - wstążką; wstążka, wstęga, tasiemka, taśma, wstążka, wstążka

imitation - imitacja, naśladowanie, kopia

warts - brodawki; brodawka, kurzajka

appendages - przydatek, dodatek, kończyna

tightly - mocno; ciasno

gymnastic exercises - ćwiczenia gimnastyczne

A dozen of these sectaries of Tingou lay flat upon their backs, while others, dressed to represent lightning-rods, came and frolicked on their noses, jumping from one to another, and performing the most skillful leapings and somersaults.

lightning - błyskawica, piorun, grom, błyskawiczny, błyskawicowy

rods - pręty; pręt, wędka, kij, rózga, pręt, pręt, pręcik, pałeczka

frolicked - baraszkować, dokazywać, figlować, swawolić

leapings - skoki

somersaults - salta; salto

As a last scene, a "human pyramid" had been announced, in which fifty Long Noses were to represent the Car of Juggernaut. But, instead of forming a pyramid by mounting each other's shoulders, the artists were to group themselves on top of the noses.

mounting - montaż; (mount) zorganizować, urządzić, dosiąść

It happened that the performer who had hitherto formed the base of the Car had left the troupe, and as, to fill this part, only strength and adroitness were necessary, Passepartout had been chosen to take his place.

performer - wykonawca, wykonawczyni

strength - siła, moc, zaleta, mocna strona

adroitness - przebiegłość, zręczność

The poor fellow really felt sad when"melancholy reminiscence of his youth!"he donned his costume, adorned with vari-colored wings, and fastened to his natural feature a false nose six feet long. But he cheered up when he thought that this nose was winning him something to eat.

melancholy - melancholia

reminiscence - wspomnienie; reminiscencja

false nose - sztuczny nos

cheered up - rozweselony

He went upon the stage, and took his place beside the rest who were to compose the base of the Car of Juggernaut. They all stretched themselves on the floor, their noses pointing to the ceiling. A second group of artists stood on these long appendages, then a third above these, then a fourth, until a human monument reaching to the very cornices of the theatre soon arose on top of the noses.

compose - tworzyć, komponować, układać

ceiling - sufit

monument - zabytek; pomnik, monument

cornices - gzymsy; gzyms

This elicited loud applause, in the midst of which the orchestra was just striking up a deafening air, when the pyramid tottered, the balance was lost, one of the lower noses vanished from the pyramid, and the human monument was shattered like a castle built of cards!

elicited - uzyskać, zyskać, wywołać

applause - aplauz, poklask, oklaski, brawa

tottered - kiwać się, iść chwiejnym krokiem; zataczanie, kołysanie

balance - równowaga; balans; bilans; saldo, balansjer, balansować

vanished - zniknął; znikać, zniknąć

shattered - niszczyć, rozwiewać, roztrzaskać

castle - zamek; wieża

It was Passepartout's fault. Abandoning his position, clearing the footlights without the aid of his wings, and clambering up to the right-hand gallery, he fell at the feet of one of the spectators, crying, "Ah, my master! My master!"

Abandoning - porzucenie; porzucić, opuszczać; pasja

clearing - czyszczenie; poręba; (clear); bezbarwny; bezchmurny; jasny; wymazać

footlights - reflektory

clambering - wdrapać się, wgramolić się; schodzenie, wdrapywanie się

"You here?"


"Very well; then let us go to the steamer, young man!"

Mr. Fogg, Aouda and Passepartout passed through the lobby of the theatre to the outside, where they encountered the Honorable Mr. Batulcar, furious with rage. He demanded damages for the "breakage" of the pyramid; and Phileas Fogg appeased him by giving him a handful of banknotes.

breakage - złamanie

appeased - złagodzić, uspokoić, ułagodzić, zaspokoić

At half-past six, the very hour of departure, Mr. Fogg and Aouda, followed by Passepartout, who in his hurry had retained his wings and nose six feet long, stepped upon the American steamer.

retained - zachowywać, zatrzymywać, gromadzić

stepped - nadepnięty; kroczyć, stąpać; krok, stopień

Chapter 24. During Which Mr. Fogg and Party Cross the Pacific Ocean

What happened when the pilot boat came in sight of Shanghai will be easily guessed. The signals made by the Tankadere had been seen by the captain of the Yokohama steamer, who, seeing the flag at half-mast, had directed his course towards the little craft.

Phileas Fogg, after paying the stipulated price of his passage to John Bunsby, and rewarding that worthy with the additional sum of five hundred and fifty pounds, boarded the steamer with Aouda and Fix; and they started at once for Nagasaki and Yokohama.

rewarding - satysfakcjonujące; nagrodzić; nagroda

boarded - na pokładzie; tablica, deska

They reached their destination on the morning of the 14th of November. Phileas Fogg lost no time in going on board the Carnatic, where he learned, to Aouda's great delight"and perhaps to his own, though he betrayed no emotion"that Passepartout, a Frenchman, had really arrived on her the day before.

The San Francisco steamer was announced to leave that very evening, and it became necessary to find Passepartout, if possible, without delay. Mr. Fogg applied in vain to the French and English consuls, and, after wandering through the streets a long time, began to despair of finding his missing servant. Chance, or perhaps a kind of presentiment, at last led him into the Honorable Mr.

presentiment - prezentację; przeczucie

Batulcar's theatre. He certainly would not have recognized Passepartout in the eccentric mountebank's costume; but the latter, lying on his back, perceived his master in the gallery. He could not help starting, which so changed the position of his nose as to bring the "pyramid" pell-mell upon the stage.

mountebank - szarlatan, oszust, hochsztapler

mell - mieszać, wtrącać się

All this Passepartout learned from Aouda, who told him what had taken place on the voyage from Hong Kong to Shanghai on the Tankadere, in company with one Mr. Fix.

Passepartout did not change countenance on hearing this name. He thought that the time had not yet arrived to divulge to his master what had taken place between the detective and himself. In the account he gave of his absence, he simply excused himself for having become drunk smoking opium at a tavern in Hong Kong.

absence - nieobecność, absencja, brak

excused - usprawiedliwiony; wybaczać, wybaczyć, przebaczać, przebaczyć

Mr. Fogg heard this narrative coldly, without a word. Then he furnished his man with funds necessary to obtain clothing more in harmony with his position. Within an hour the Frenchman had cut off his nose and parted with his wings, and retained nothing about him which recalled the sectary of the god Tingou.

funds - fundusze; fundusz, fundusz, finansować, sfinansować

clothing - odzież, ubrania

sectary - sekcyjny; sectary

The steamer which was about to depart from Yokohama to San Francisco belonged to the Pacific Mail Steamship Company, and was named the General Grant. She was a large paddle-wheel steamer of two thousand five hundred tons, well-equipped and very fast. The massive walking-beam rose and fell above the deck. At one end a piston-rod worked up and down.

depart - odchodzić, odjeżdżać, odlatywać, odstąpić

Steamship - statek parowy; parowiec

Grant - darowizna

paddle-wheel - (paddle-wheel) koło napędowe statku, koło łopatkowe 

massive - masywny

beam - wiązka; belka; promień; belkować, obelkować

piston - tłok; odrzut

rod - pręt; wędka; kij, rózga, pręcik, pałeczka, pręcik, drążek

At the other was a connecting-rod which, in changing the rectilinear motion to a circular one, was directly connected with the shaft of the paddles. The General Grant was rigged with three masts, giving a large capacity for sails, and thus materially aiding the steam power. By making twelve miles an hour, she would cross the ocean in twenty-one days.

connecting - łączenie; łączyć, połączyć, łączyć, połączyć, łączyć, połączyć

rectilinear - prostoliniowy

shaft - wał; szyb

paddles - wiosła; wiosłować, brodzić; wiosło

Phileas Fogg was therefore justified in hoping that he would reach San Francisco by the 2nd of December, New York by the 11th, and London on the 20th"thus gaining several hours on the fatal date of the 21st of December.

justified - uzasadnione; uzasadniać, uzasadnić, usprawiedliwiać

There was a full complement of passengers on board, among them English, many Americans, a large number of coolies on their way to California, and several East Indian officers, who were spending their vacation in making a tour of the world. Nothing of moment happened on the voyage. The steamer, sustained on its large paddles, rolled but little, and the Pacific almost justified its name.

complement - uzupełnienie; dopełnienie

coolies - chłodno, spokojnie

California - Kalifornia

sustained - trwały; podtrzymać, podtrzymać, utrzymywać

Mr. Fogg was as calm and taciturn as ever. His young companion felt herself more and more attached to him by other ties than gratitude. His silent but generous nature impressed her more than she thought; and it was almost unconsciously that she yielded to emotions which did not seem to have the least effect upon her protector.

ties - więzi; zawiązywać, przywiązać; powiązanie, krawat, węzeł

emotions - emocje; emocja

Aouda took the keenest interest in his plans, and became impatient at any incident which seemed likely to retard his journey.

keenest - najchętniej; zapalony, wyostrzony

retard - wstrzymać, opóźnić

She often chatted with Passepartout, who did not fail to perceive the state of the lady's heart. Being the most faithful of servants, he never exhausted his eulogies of Phileas Fogg's honesty, generosity and devotion.

perceive - postrzegać; dostrzegać, dostrzec

most faithful - najwierniejszy

eulogies - eulogie; laudacja

He took pains to calm Aouda's doubts of a successful termination of the journey, telling her that the most difficult part of it had passed, that now they were beyond the fantastic countries of Japan and China, and were fairly on their way to civilized places again.

doubts - wątpliwości; wątpić, zwątpić, powątpiewać, wątpliwość

most difficult - najtrudniejszy

A railway train from San Francisco to New York, and a transatlantic steamer from New York to Liverpool, would doubtless bring them to the end of this impossible journey round the world within the period agreed upon.

transatlantic - transatlantycki

On the ninth day after leaving Yokohama, Phileas Fogg had traveled exactly one half of the terrestrial globe. The General Grant passed, on the 23rd of November, the one hundred and eightieth meridian, and was at the very antipodes of London. Mr. Fogg had, it is true, exhausted fifty-two of the eighty days in which he was to complete the tour, and there were only twenty-eight left.

ninth - dziewiąty; nona

eightieth - osiemdziesiąty (''abbreviation'' 80.)

But, though he was only halfway by the difference of meridians, he had really gone over two-thirds of the whole journey; for he had been obliged to make long circuits from London to Aden, from Aden to Bombay, from Calcutta to Singapore, and from Singapore to Yokohama.

halfway - w połowie drogi, w pół drogi

meridians - meridiany; południk

thirds - trzecie; trzeci, trzeci, trzecia, trzeci

circuits - obwody; obieg, obwód, obwód, obchód

Could he have followed without deviation the fiftieth parallel, which is that of London, the whole distance would only have been about twelve thousand miles; whereas he would be forced, by the irregular methods of locomotion, to travel twenty-six thousand, of which he had, on the 23rd of November, accomplished seventeen thousand five hundred.

deviation - odchylenie, odstępstwo

fiftieth - pięćdziesiąty

parallel - równoległe; równoległy; równolegle; równoleżnik

whereas - podczas gdy; natomiast, zaś

locomotion - lokomocja

And now the course was a straight one, and Fix was no longer there to put obstacles in their way!

It happened also, on the 23rd of November, that Passepartout made a joyful discovery. It will be remembered that the obstinate fellow had insisted on keeping his famous family watch at London time, and on regarding that of the countries he had passed through as quite false and unreliable.

joyful - radosny, wesoły

insisted - nalegał; nalegać

regarding - odnośnie; mieć wzgląd, brać pod uwagę, dotyczyć

unreliable - niewiarygodne; nierzetelny, awaryjny

Now, on this day, though he had not changed the hands, he found that his watch exactly agreed with the ship's chronometers. His triumph was hilarious. He would have liked to know what Fix would say if he were aboard!

triumph - triumfować; triumf, zwycięstwo

hilarious - zabawne; arcyśmieszny, prześmieszny, arcyzabawny, przezabawny

"The rogue told me a lot of stories," repeated Passepartout, "about the meridians, the sun, and the moon! Moon, indeed! Moonshine more likely! If one listened to that sort of people, a pretty sort of time one would keep! I was sure that the sun would some day regulate itself by my watch!"

Moonshine - księżycówka, bimber, samogon, samogonka

some day - pewnego dnia, kiedyś (w przyszłości) 

Passepartout was ignorant that, if the face of his watch had been divided into twenty-four hours, like the Italian clocks, he would have no reason for exultation; for the hands of his watch would then, instead of as now indicating nine o'clock in the morning, indicate nine o'clock in the evening.

Italian - włoski, włoskojęzyczny, Włoch, Włoszka, włoski

exultation - radość, euforia

indicate - wskazać; wskazywać; ukazywać; sygnalizować

That is, it would have shown the twenty-first hour after midnight"precisely the difference between London time and that of the one hundred and eightieth meridian. But if Fix had been able to explain this purely physical effect, Passepartout would not have admitted it, even if he had comprehended it.

purely - czysto

Moreover, if the detective had been on board at that moment, Passepartout would have joined issue with him on a quite different subject, and in an entirely different manner.

issue - kwestia; emisja; problem; emitować

entirely different - zupełnie inny

Where was Fix at that moment?

He was actually on board the General Grant.

actually - właściwie, naprawdę, faktycznie, autentycznie

On reaching Yokohama, the detective, leaving Mr. Fogg, whom he expected to meet again during the day, had repaired at once to the English consulate, where he at last found the warrant of arrest. It had followed him from Bombay, and had come by the Carnatic, on which steamer he himself was supposed to be. Fix's disappointment may be imagined when he reflected that the warrant was now useless. Mr.

meet again - spotkać się ponownie

Fogg had left English ground, and it was now necessary to procure his extradition!

procure - nabyć; stręczyć; wystarać się, sprokurować

"Well," thought Fix, after a moment of anger, "my warrant is not good here, but it will be in England. The rogue evidently intends to return to his own country, thinking he has thrown the police off his track. Good! I will follow him across the Atlantic. As for the money, heaven grant there may be some left!

anger - złość, gniew, wkurw, złościć, złościć się, gniewać się

intends - zamierzać, zamierzać

thrown - rzucony; wyrzucić, rzucić, niedbale położyć

But the fellow has already spent in traveling, rewards, trials, bail, elephants and all sorts of charges, more than five thousand pounds. Yet, after all, the bank is rich!"

rewards - nagrody; nagrodzić; nagroda

trials - próby; rozprawa, proces, próba, udręka

charges - opłaty; opłata, szarża, oskarżenie

His course decided on, he went on board the General Grant, and was there when Mr. Fogg and Aouda arrived. To his utter amazement, he recognized Passepartout, despite his theatrical disguise. He quickly concealed himself in his cabin, to avoid an awkward explanation, and hoped"thanks to the number of passengers"to remain unperceived by Mr. Fogg's servant.

amazement - zdumienie

theatrical - teatralny, aktorski

disguise - kamuflaż, przebranie, kamuflaż, kamuflowanie

awkward - niezręczny; nieprzyjemny; nieśmiały

unperceived - niezauważony

On that very day, however, he met Passepartout face to face on the forward deck. The latter, without a word, made a rush for him, grasped him by the throat, and, much to the amusement of a group of Americans, who immediately began to bet on him, administered to the detective a perfect volley of blows, which proved the great superiority of French over English pugilistic skill.

grasped - uchwycony; trzymać, chwytać, rozumieć, pojmować, uchwyt

throat - gardło

amusement - rozbawienie; zabawa

administered - administrowane; podać, podawać, zadać, zadawać, zaaplikować

blows - ciosy; (blow) dmuchać, wywiać, wiać; cios, dmuchanie

When Passepartout had finished, he found himself relieved and comforted. Fix got up in a somewhat rumpled condition, and, looking at his adversary, coldly said, "Have you done?"

relieved - ulżyło; ulżyć, odciążać, odciążyć, ulżyć, ulżyć, ulżyć

comforted - pocieszony; wygoda, komfort, pociecha

rumpled - pomięty; marszczyć, zmarszczyć, miąć, zmiąć, gnieść, pognieść

condition - warunek; stan, kondycja

adversary - przeciwnik, przeciwniczka, oponent, oponentka

"For this time"yes."

"Then let me have a word with you."

"But I""

"In your master's interests."

Passepartout seemed to be vanquished by Fix's coolness, for he quietly followed him, and they sat down aside from the rest of the passengers.

vanquished - rozgromić, pokonać, przezwyciężyć

"You have given me a thrashing," said Fix. "Good, I expected it. Now, listen to me. Up to this time I have been Mr. Fogg's adversary. I am now in his game."

thrashing - młócenie; bicie, baty, cięgi

"Aha!" cried Passepartout. "You are convinced he is an honest man?"

Aha - aha

"No," replied Fix coldly, "I think him a rascal. Sh! don't budge, and let me speak. As long as Mr. Fogg was on English ground, it was for my interest to detain him there until my warrant of arrest arrived. I did everything I could to keep him back. I sent the Bombay priests after him. I got you intoxicated at Hong Kong. I separated you from him, and I made him miss the Yokohama steamer."

budge - ustąpić; poruszać, ruszyć, drgnąć, ustepować, zmieniać zdanie

Passepartout listened, with closed fists.

"Now," resumed Fix, "Mr. Fogg seems to be going back to England. Well, I will follow him there. But hereafter I will do as much to keep obstacles out of his way as I have done up to this time to put them in his path. I've changed my game, you see, and simply because it was in my interest to change it.

hereafter - życie pozagrobowe; dalej, dalej zwany, poniżej, odtąd

done up - wyczerpany; zapięte; zawiązane coś (np. ubranie); odnowione coś (np. stary samochód); udekorowane; ozdobione coś; zawinięte; owinięte coś (np. w papier)

Your interest is the same as mine, for it is only in England that you will know whether you are in the service of a criminal or an honest man."

Passepartout listened very attentively to Fix, and was convinced that he spoke with entire good faith.

entire - w całości; cały

"Are we friends?" asked the detective.

"Friends? No," replied Passepartout. "But allies, perhaps. At the least sign of treason, however, I'll twist your neck for you.

treason - zdrada; kolaboracja

"Agreed," said the detective quietly.

Eleven days later, on the 3rd of December, the General Grant entered the bay of the Golden Gate, and reached San Francisco.

Golden - złoty

Gate - brama

Mr. Fogg had neither gained nor lost a single day.

Chapter 25. In Which a Slight Glimpse Is Had of San Francisco

It was seven in the morning when Mr. Fogg, Aouda and Passepartout set foot upon the American continent, if this name can be given to the floating quay upon which they disembarked. These quays, rising and falling with the tide, thus facilitate the loading and unloading of vessels.

facilitate - ułatwić; ułatwiać, torować, upraszczać

loading and unloading - załadunek i rozładunek

Alongside them were clippers of all sizes, steamers of all nationalities, and the steamboats, with several decks rising one above the other, which ply on the Sacramento and its tributaries. There were also heaped up the products of a commerce which extends to Mexico, Chili, Peru, Brazil, Europe, Asia and all the Pacific islands.

Passepartout, in his joy on reaching at last the American continent, thought he would show it by executing a perilous vault in fine style; but, tumbling upon some worm-eaten planks, he fell through them. Put out of countenance by the manner in which he thus "set foot" upon the New World, he uttered a loud cry.

tumbling - przewracanie; (tumble) upadać, przewracać się, runąć

worm - robak, smok

planks - deski; deska, deska

This so frightened the innumerable cormorants and pelicans that are always perched upon these movable quays, that they flew noisily away.

frightened - przestraszony; straszyć, przestraszyć, nastraszyć

innumerable - niezliczone

cormorants - kormorany; kormoran

pelicans - pelikany; pelikan

movable - ruchomy, przenośny

Mr. Fogg, on reaching shore, proceeded to find out at what hour the first train left for New York, and learned that this was at six o'clock P.M. He had, therefore, an entire day to spend in the Californian city. Taking a carriage for three dollars, he and Aouda entered it, while Passepartout mounted the box beside the driver, and they set out for the International Hotel.

Californian - kalifornijski; Kalifornijczyk, Kalifornijka

International - międzynarodowy; międzynarodówka

From his exalted position Passepartout observed with much curiosity the wide streets, the low, evenly ranged houses, the Anglo-Saxon Gothic churches, the great docks, the palatial wooden and brick warehouses, the numerous conveyances, omnibuses, horse-cars, and upon the side-walks, not only Americans and Europeans, but Chinese and Indians.

San Francisco was no longer the legendary city of 1849"a city of banditti, assassins and incendiaries, who had flocked here in crowds in pursuit of plunder. Formerly a paradise of outlaws, where they gambled with gold-dust, a revolver in one hand and a bowie-knife in the other, it was now a great commercial emporium.

rarely - rzadko

gentlemanly - dżentelmeński

Some of the streets"especially Montgomery Street, which is to San Francisco what Regent Street is to London, the Boulevard des Italiens to Paris and Broadway to New York"were lined with splendid and spacious stores, which exposed in their windows the products of the entire world.

exposed - narażony; odsłonić, ukazać, naświetlić, eksponować

When Passepartout reached the International Hotel, it did not seem to him as if he had left England at all.

The ground floor of the hotel was occupied by a large bar, a sort of restaurant freely open to all passers-by, who might partake of dried beef, oyster soup, biscuits and cheese, without taking out their purses. Payment was made only for the ale, porter, or sherry which was drunk. This seemed "very American" to Passepartout. The hotel refreshment-rooms were comfortable, and Mr.

Fogg and Aouda, installing themselves at a table, were abundantly served on diminutive plates by Negroes of darkest hue.

After breakfast, Mr. Fogg, accompanied by Aouda, started for the English consulate to have his passport visaed. As he was going out, he met Passepartout, who asked him if it would not be well, before taking the train, to purchase some dozens of Enfield rifles and Colt's revolvers. He had been listening to stories of attacks upon the trains by the Sioux and Pawnees. Mr.

Colt - źrebak, ogierek

revolvers - rewolwery; rewolwer, bębenkowiec

Fogg thought it a useless precaution, but told him to do as he thought best, and went on to the consulate.

precaution - ostrożność, środek ostrożności

He had not proceeded two hundred steps, however, when, "by the greatest chance in the world," he met Fix. The detective seemed wholly taken by surprise. What! Had Mr. Fogg and himself crossed the Pacific together, and not met on the steamer!

taken by surprise - wzięty z zaskoczenia

At least Fix felt honored to behold once more the gentleman to whom he owed so much, and, as his business recalled him to Europe, he should be delighted to continue the journey in such pleasant company.

Mr. Fogg replied that the honor would be his; and the detective"who was determined not to lose sight of him"begged permission to accompany them in their walk about San Francisco"a request which Mr. Fogg readily granted.

accompany - towarzyszyć, asystować, akompaniować, zaakompaniować, basować

readily - łatwo, skwapliwie, bez wahania

granted - przyznane; darowizna

They soon found themselves in Montgomery Street, where a great crowd was collected. The side-walks, street, horse-car rails, the shop-doors, the windows of the houses and even the roofs, were full of people. Men were going about carrying large posters, and flags and streamers were floating in the wind, while loud cries were heard on every hand.

roofs - dachy; dach, sklepienie

posters - plakaty; plakat, afisz

"Hurrah for Camerfield!"

Hurrah - hurra; hura

"Hurrah for Mandiboy!"

It was a political meeting; at least so Fix guessed. He said to Mr. Fogg, "Perhaps we had better not mingle with the crowd. There may be danger in it."

political - polityczny

mingle - przyłączać, mieszać

"Yes," returned Mr. Fogg, "and blows, even if they are political are still blows."

Fix smiled at this remark; and, in order to be able to see without being jostled about, the party took up a position on the top of a flight of steps situated at the upper end of Montgomery Street.

smiled - uśmiechnięty; uśmiech, uśmiechać

Opposite them, on the other side of the street, between a coal wharf and a petroleum warehouse, a large platform had been erected in the open air, towards which the current of the crowd seemed to be directed.

petroleum - ropa naftowa

warehouse - magazyn, skład, magazynować

erected - wzniesiony; wznosić, stawiać, rozbijać; podniesiony

For what purpose was this meeting? What was the occasion of this excited assemblage? Phileas Fogg could not imagine. Was it to nominate some high official"a governor or member of Congress? It was not improbable, so agitated was the multitude before them.

Occasion - wypadek, okazja, powód

assemblage - montaż; zbiorowisko; asamblaż, assemblage

nominate - nominować

high official - urzędnik wysokiego szczebla, wysoki urzędnik, wyższy urzędnik państwowy 

Congress - kongres; zjazd

improbable - nieprawdopodobne; nieprawdopododny

Just at this moment there was an unusual stir in the human mass. All the hands were raised in the air. Some, tightly closed, seemed to disappear suddenly in the midst of the cries-an energetic way, no doubt, of casting a vote. The crowd swayed back, the banners and flags wavered, disappeared an instant, then reappeared in tatters.

disappear - znikać, zniknąć, porywać

casting - (cast) rzucać, odlewać, obsadzać; casting, odlewanie

vote - głos; głosowanie; głosować

swayed - kołysany; władza, trząść, rządzić

wavered - zachwiał się; zawahać się, zadrżeć, rwać się, osłabnąć, załamać

tatters - szmaty; łachman, szmata

The undulations of the human surge reached the steps, while all the heads floundered on the surface like a sea agitated by a squall. Many of the black hats disappeared, and the greater part of the crowd seemed to have diminished in height.

undulations - falistość, falowanie

floundered - flądrował; brnąć

diminished - maleć, ubywać, zmaleć, zmniejszać

"It is evidently a meeting," said Fix, "and its object must be an exciting one. I should not wonder if it were about the Alabama, despite the fact that that question is settled."

"Perhaps," replied Mr. Fogg, simply.

"At least, there are two champions in presence of each other, the

champions - mistrzowie; mistrz, mistrzyni, zwyciężca

Honorable Mr. Camerfield and the Honorable Mr. Mandiboy."

Aouda, leaning upon Mr. Fogg's arm, observed the tumultuous scene with surprise, while Fix asked a man near him what the cause of it all was. Before the man could reply, a fresh agitation arose. Hurrahs and excited shouts were heard. The staffs of the banners began to be used as offensive weapons; and fists flew about in every direction.

shouts - krzyczy; krzyczeć; krzyk, pokrzykiwania

Thumps were exchanged from the tops of the carriages and omnibuses which had been blocked up in the crowd. Boots and shoes went whirling through the air, and Mr. Fogg thought he even heard the crack of revolvers mingling in the din. The rout approached the stairway, and flowed over the lower step.

Thumps - uderzenia; bachnąć, dudnić, tętnić

blocked up - zablokowany (np. droga); zatkany, zapchany (np. rura)

rout - rutyna; rozgromić; pogrom, nielegalne zgromadzenia

One of the parties had evidently been repulsed, but the mere onlookers could not tell whether Mandiboy or Camerfield had gained the upper hand.

repulsed - odepchnięty; odeprzeć, odtrącać, zrażać, stanowczo odmawiać

onlookers - gapiów; obserwator, gap

upper hand - mieć przewagę, zdobyć przewagę

"It would be prudent for us to retire," said Fix, who was anxious that Mr. Fogg should not receive any injury, at least until they got back to London. "If there is any question about England in all this, and we were recognized, I fear it would go hard with us."

injury - szkoda, uraz, kontuzja

"An English subject"" began Mr. Fogg.

He did not finish his sentence, for a terrific hubbub now arose on the terrace behind the flight of steps where they stood, and there were frantic shouts of, "Hurrah for Mandiboy! Hip, hip, hurrah!"

hubbub - gwar, harmider, wrzawa, zgiełk

terrace - taras, terasa, tasas

frantic - oszalały, wściekły

Hip - biodro

It was a band of voters coming to the rescue of their allies, and taking the Camerfield forces in flank. Mr. Fogg, Aouda and Fix found themselves between two fires. It was too late to escape. The torrent of men, armed with loaded canes and sticks, was irresistible. Phileas Fogg and Fix were roughly hustled in their attempts to protect their fair companion.

voters - wyborców; wyborca

flank - flankować, oskrzydlać, bok, łata, flanka, skrzydło

torrent - potok, ulewa, strumień

roughly - ordynarnie, z grubsza, mniej więcej

hustled - naciągany; bieganina

attempts - próby; próbować, spróbować, próba, podejście, zamach

The former, as cool as ever, tried to defend himself with the weapons which nature has placed at the end of every Englishman's arm, but in vain. A big brawny fellow with a red beard, flushed face and broad shoulders, who seemed to be the chief of the band, raised his clenched fist to strike Mr. Fogg, whom he would have given a crushing blow, had not Fix rushed in and received it in his stead.

contemptuous - pogardliwy

"Englishman!" returned the other. "We will meet again!"

"When you please."

"What is your name?"

"Phileas Fogg. And yours?"

"Colonel Stamp Proctor."

Colonel - pułkowniku; pułkownik

Stamp - znaczek; tupanie; pieczątka, pieczęć, stempel

Proctor - cenzor

The human tide now swept by, after overturning Fix, who speedily got upon his feet again, though with tattered clothes. Happily, he was not seriously hurt. His traveling overcoat was divided into two unequal parts, and his trousers resembled those of certain Indians, which fit less compactly than they are easy to put on.

swept - zmieciony; zamiatać, zamieść

overturning - obalać, obalić, przewracać, przewrócić, przewrót, wywracać

marks - znaki; Marek, Marek, Margusz, Markusz, Merkusz, Ewangelia Marka

fray - bójka, walka

"Thanks," said Mr. Fogg to the detective, as soon as they were out of the crowd.

"No thanks are necessary," replied Fix, "but let us go."


"To a tailor's."

tailor - krawiec, krawcowa, krawczyni

Such a visit was, indeed, necessary. The clothing of both Mr. Fogg and Fix was in rags, as if they had themselves been actively engaged in the contest between Camerfield and Mandiboy. An hour after, they were once more suitably attired, and with Aouda returned to the International Hotel.

rags - szmaty; nabijać się, dokuczać; szmata, gazeta

actively - aktywnie

suitably - odpowiednio; godziwie; odpowiedni, nadający się

Passepartout was waiting for his master, armed with half a dozen six-barreled revolvers. When he perceived Fix, he knit his brows; but Aouda having, in a few words, told him of their adventure, his countenance resumed its placid expression. Fix evidently was no longer an enemy, but an ally. He was faith-fully keeping his word.

barreled - lufowe; beczka, lufa

knit - dzianina; robić na drutach, dziać

enemy - wróg, nieprzyjaciel, nieprzyjaciółka, przeciwnik

Dinner over, the coach which was to convey the passengers and their luggage to the station drew up to the door. As he was getting in, Mr. Fogg said to Fix, "You have not seen this Colonel Proctor again?"

coach - powóz, kareta, wagon, trener, trenerka, autokar, trenować

convey - przenosić; przewozić, przewieźć, przekazać, przekazywać


"I will come back to America to find him," said Phileas Fogg calmly. "It would not be right for an Englishman to permit himself to be treated in that way without retaliating."

permit - pozwolenie; pozwalać, zezwalać

retaliating - odwet; mścić się

The detective smiled, but did not reply. It was clear that Mr. Fogg was one of those Englishmen who, while they do not tolerate dueling at home, fight abroad when their honor is attacked.

dueling - pojedynki; (duel) pojedynkować się

fight - walczyć, bić się; walka

abroad - granica

At a quarter before six the travelers reached the station, and found the train ready to depart. As he was about to enter it, Mr. Fogg called a porter, and said to him: "My friend, was there not some trouble today in San Francisco?"

"It was a political meeting, sir," replied the porter.

"But I thought there was a great deal of disturbance in the streets."

"It was only a meeting assembled for an election."

assembled - zmontowane; montować, zbierać się, gromadzić się

election - wybory v; wybór

"The election of a general-in-chief, no doubt?" asked Mr. Fogg.

"No, sir; of a justice of the peace."

peace - spokój

Phileas Fogg got into the train, which started off at full speed.

Chapter 26. In Which Phileas Fogg and Party Travel by the Pacific Railroad

Railroad - kolej żelazna; kolejowy

"From ocean to ocean""so say the Americans; and these four words compose the general designation of the "great trunk line" which crosses the entire width of the United States. The Pacific Railroad is, however, really divided into two distinct lines: the Central Pacific, between San Francisco and Ogden, and the Union Pacific, between Ogden and Omaha. Five main lines connect Omaha with New York.

designation - desygnacja; oznaczenie

trunk line - linia łącząca, linia międzymiastowa (telefoniczna); magistrala (kolejowa)

crosses - krzyże

New York and San Francisco are thus united by an uninterrupted metal ribbon, which measures no less than three thousand seven hundred and eighty-six miles. Between Omaha and the Pacific the railway crosses a territory which is still infested by Indians and wild beasts, and a large tract which the Mormons, after they were driven from Illinois in 1845, began to colonize.

The journey from New York to San Francisco took, formerly, under the most favorable conditions, at least six months. It is now accomplished in seven days. In 1862, in spite of the Southern Members of Congress, who wished a more southerly route, it was decided to lay the road between the forty-first and forty-second parallels.

seven days - siedem dni

spite - złośliwość; niechęć, uraza, złość

southerly - na południe; południowy

parallels - podobieństwa; równoległy, równolegle, równoleżnik

President Lincoln himself fixed the end of the line at Omaha, in Nebraska. The work was started at once and pursued with true American energy. The rapidity with which it went on did not injuriously affect its good execution. The road grew, on the prairies, a mile and a half a day.

President - prezydent; prezes, przewodniczący, dyrektor

Nebraska - Nebraska

energy - energii; energia

injuriously - szkodliwie

execution - wykonanie, egzekucja

prairies - prerie; preria

A locomotive, running on the rails laid down the evening before, brought the rails to be laid the next day, and advanced upon them as fast as they were put in position.

laid down - położyć (się); ułożyć (się)

The Pacific Railroad is joined by several branches in Iowa, Kansas, Colorado and Oregon.

Iowa - Iowa

Colorado - Kolorado

Oregon - Oregon

On leaving Omaha, it passes along the left bank of the Platte Rivet as far as the junction of its northern branch, follows its southern branch, crosses the Laramie territory and the Wahsatch Mountains, turns the Great Salt Lake, and reaches Salt Lake City, the Mormon capital, plunges into the Tuilla Valley, across the American Desert, Cedar and Humboldt Mountains, the Sierra Nevada, and descends, via Sacramento, to the Pacific"its grade, even on the Rocky Mountains, never exceeding one hundred and twelve feet to the mile.

Such was the road to be traveled in seven days. It would enable Phileas Fogg"at least, so he hoped"to take the Atlantic steamer at New York on the 11th for Liverpool.

The car which he occupied was a sort of long omnibus on eight wheels, with no compartments in the interior. It was supplied with two rows of seats, perpendicular to the direction of the train on either side of an aisle which led to the front and rear platforms. These platforms were found throughout the train, and the passengers were able to pass from one end of the train to the other.

compartments - przedziały; przedział, postument

seats - siedzenie

perpendicular - prostopadłe; prostopadły; prostopadła

aisle - nawa boczna; przejście; alejka

Book and news dealers, sellers of edibles, beverages and cigars, who seemed to have plenty of customers, were continually circulating in the aisles.

dealers - dealerów; diler, dilerka, dealer, dealerka, rozdający, rozdająca

sellers - sprzedawców; sprzedawca

The train left Oakland station at six o'clock. It was already night, cold and cheerless, the heavens being overcast with clouds which seemed to threaten snow. The train did not proceed rapidly. Counting the stops, it did not run more than twenty miles an hour, which was a sufficient speed, however, to enable it to reach Omaha within its designated time.

cheerless - bezczelny; ponury

threaten - grozić, pogrozić, zagrozić, zagrażać

sufficient - wystarczające; dostateczny, wystarczający

There was but little conversation in the car, and soon many of the passengers were asleep. Passepartout found himself beside the detective, but he did not talk to him. After recent events, their relations with each other had grown somewhat cold. There could no longer be mutual sympathy or intimacy between them.

recent - ostatnio; ostatni, świeży, niedawny

relations - relacje; relacja, relacja

mutual - wzajemne; wzajemny; obopólny, wspólny

strangle - dławić, dusić; zduszony

provocation - prowokacja

Snow began to fall an hour after they started, a fine snow, however, which happily did not deter the train. Nothing could be seen from the windows but a vast, white sheet, against which the smoke of the locomotive had a greyish aspect.

deter - odstraszać, powstrzymywać

greyish - szarawy, szpakowaty

At eight o'clock a steward entered the car and announced that bedtime had arrived. In a few minutes the car was transformed into a dormitory. The backs of the seats were thrown back, bedsteads carefully packed were rolled out by an ingenious system, berths were suddenly improvised, and each traveler soon had at his disposition a comfortable bed, protected from curious eyes by thick curtains.

sheets - arkusze; arkusz, kartka (papieru), arkusz

pillows - poduszki; poduszka, zagłówek

sped - prędkość

The country between San Francisco and Sacramento is not very hilly. The Central Pacific, taking Sacramento for its starting point, extends eastward to meet the road from Omaha. The line from San Francisco to Sacramento runs in a northeasterly direction, along the American River, which empties into San Pablo Bay. The one hundred and twenty miles between these cities were accomplished in six hours.

hilly - pagórkowaty

northeasterly - północno-wschodni

Towards midnight, while fast asleep, the travelers passed through Sacramento; so that they saw nothing of that important place, the seat of the state government, with its fine quays, its broad streets, its noble hotels, squares and churches.

The train, on leaving Sacramento, and passing the junction, Roclin, Auburn and Colfax, entered the range of the Sierra Nevada. 'Cisco was reached at seven in the morning; and an hour later the dormitory was transformed into an ordinary car, and the travelers could observe the picturesque beauties of the mountain region through which they were steaming.

Auburn - kasztanowaty, kasztanowy

ordinary - zwyczajny; zwykły

region - okolica, obszar, region, rejon

steaming - parowanie; gotowanie na parze; (steam); para wodny

The railway track wound in and out among the passes, now approaching the mountainsides, now suspended over precipices, avoiding abrupt angles by bold curves, plunging into narrow defiles, which seemed to have no outlet.

mountainsides - stok, zbocze góry

precipices - przepaści; przepaść

avoiding - unikanie; unikać, uniknąć

curves - krzywe; zakręt, krzywa, krzywa

outlet - wyjście; ulga; odpływ; wyprzedaż, zbyt, outlet

The locomotive, its great funnel emitting a weird light, with its sharp bell, and its cowcatcher extended like a spur, mingled its shrieks and bellowings with the noise of torrents and cascades, and twined its smoke among the branches of the gigantic pines.

emitting - wyemitować, wydzielić, wysłać, wypuścić, wyrzucić, wydać

There were few or no bridges or tunnels on the route. The railway turned around the sides of the mountains, and did not attempt to violate nature by taking the shortest cut from one point to another.

tunnels - tunele; tunel

violate - naruszać, pogwałcać

The train entered the State of Nevada through the Carson Valley about nine o'clock, going always northeasterly. At midday it reached Reno where there was a delay of twenty minutes for breakfast.

midday - południe; południowy

From this point the road, running along Humboldt River, passed northward for several miles by its banks. Then it turned eastward, and kept by the river until it reached the Humboldt Range, nearly at the extreme eastern limit of Nevada.

limit - ograniczać; limit

After breakfast, Mr. Fogg and his companions resumed their places in the car, and observed the varied landscape which unfolded as they passed along: the vast prairies, the mountains lining the horizon, and the creeks, with their frothy, foaming streams. Sometimes a great herd of buffaloes, massing together in the distance, seemed like a movable dam.

unfolded - rozłożyć, rozwinąć, roztaczać się, rozkładać

creeks - dopływ, potok

frothy - pienisty, spieniony, z pianką, czczy

foaming - spienianie; (foam) spieniać, pienić się; pieniący się

buffaloes - bawół, bawolica, bizon, polować na bawoły

massing - masowanie; gromadzić się, zbierać się; gromadzenie się

dam - tama, zapora

These innumerable multitudes of beasts often form an insurmountable obstacle to the passage of the trains. Thousands of them have been seen passing over the track for hours in compact ranks. The locomotive is then forced to stop and wait till the road is once more clear.

multitudes - tłumy; mnóstwo, multum, bezlik

insurmountable - nie do pokonania

passing over - przejść obok; zostawiać coś (np. temat), nie zajmować się czymś, zignorować coś; pomijać; zignorować kogoś

This happened to the train in which Mr. Fogg was traveling. About twelve o'clock a troop of ten or twelve thousand head of buffalo covered the track. The locomotive, slackening its speed, tried to clear the way with its cowcatcher; but the mass of animals was too great. The buffaloes marched along with a tranquil gait, uttering now and then deafening bellowings.

troop - oddział

buffalo - bawół, bawolica, bizon, polować na bawoły

There was no use of interrupting them, for, having taken a particular direction, nothing can moderate and change their course. It is a torrent of living flesh which no dam could contain.

flesh - ciało, mięso, miąższ, cielisty

contain - zawierać

The travelers gazed on this curious spectacle from the platforms. But Phileas Fogg, who had the most reason of all to be in a hurry, remained in his seat, and waited philosophically until it should please the buffaloes to get out of the way.

spectacle - widowisko, spektakl

Passepartout was furious at the delay, and longed to discharge his arsenal of revolvers upon them.

discharge - absolutorium; rozładować, rozładowywać, wypisać, wypisywać

arsenal - arsenał, zbrojownia, cekhauz

"What a country!" he cried. "Mere cattle stop the trains, and go by in a procession, just as if they were not impeding travel! Parbleu! I should like to know if Mr. Fogg foresaw this mishap in his program! And here's an engineer who doesn't dare to run the locomotive into this herd of beasts!"

impeding - przeszkadzać

mishap - wpadka; nieszczęście

The engineer did not try to overcome the obstacle, and he was wise. He would have crushed the first buffaloes, no doubt, with the cowcatcher; but the locomotive, however powerful, would soon have been checked, the train would inevitably have been thrown off the track, and would then have been helpless.

powerful - mocny, potężny

helpless - bezradny, bezsilny, bezbronny

The best course was to wait patiently, and regain the lost time by greater speed when the obstacle was removed. The procession of buffaloes lasted three full hours, and it was night before the track was clear. The last ranks of the herd were now passing over the rails, while the first had already disappeared below the southern horizon.

wait patiently - czekać cierpliwie

regain - odzyskać

removed - usunięte; usuwać, usunąć, odejmować, odjąć

It was eight o'clock when the train passed through the defiles of the Humboldt Range, and half-past nine when it penetrated Utah, the region of the Great Salt Lake, the singular colony of the Mormons.

Undergoes - poddaje się; przechodzić, przejść, doświadczać, doświadczyć

During the night of the 5th of December, the train ran south-easterly for about fifty miles; then rose an equal distance in a northeasterly direction, towards the Great Salt Lake.

easterly - na wschód; wschodni

Passepartout, about nine o'clock, went out upon the platform to take the air. The weather was cold, the heavens grey, but it was not snowing.

The sun's disc, enlarged by the mist, seemed an enormous ring of gold, and Passepartout was amusing himself by calculating its value in pounds sterling, when he was diverted from this interesting study by a strange-looking person who made his appearance on the platform.

disc - dysk

enlarged - powiększony; powiększać, powiększyć, rozszerzać, rozszerzyć

diverted - obracać, zmieniać kierunek, rozbawiać; zmień kierunek

This person, who had taken the train at Elko, was tall and dark, with black moustache, black stockings, a black silk hat, a black waistcoat, black trousers, a white cravat and dogskin gloves. He might have been taken for a clergyman. He went from one end of the train to the other, and affixed to the door of each car a notice written in manuscript.

moustache - wąsy

waistcoat - kamizelka, bezrękawnik

cravat - krawat

dogskin - psia skóra; dogskin

gloves - rękawice; rękawica, rękawiczka

clergyman - duchowny, kleryk

affixed - przymocowany; formant, zrostek, afiks

manuscript - odręczny, rękopis, rękopis, manuskrypt, maszynopis

Passepartout approached and read one of these notices. It stated that Elder William Hitch, Mormon missionary, taking advantage of his presence on train No.48, would deliver a lecture on Mormonism in car No.117, from eleven to twelve o'clock; and that he invited all who were desirous of being instructed concerning the mysteries of the religion of the "Latter Day Saints" to attend.

"I'll go," said Passepartout to himself. He knew nothing of

Mormonism except the custom of polygamy, which is its foundation.

polygamy - poligamia, wielożeństwo

foundation - założenie, ufundowanie, fundament, fundament, fundacja, podkład

The news quickly spread through the train, which contained about one hundred passengers, thirty of whom, at most, attracted by the notice, seated themselves in car No.117. Passepartout took one of the front seats. Neither Mr. Fogg nor Fix cared to attend.

attracted - przyciąga; pociągać

At the appointed hour Elder William Hitch rose, and, in an irritated voice, as if he had already been contradicted, said, "I tell you that Joe Smith is a martyr, that his brother Hiram is a martyr, and that the persecutions of the United States Government against the prophets will also make a martyr of Brigham Young. Who dares to say the contrary?"

persecutions - prześladowania; prześladowanie

prophets - proroków; prorok, prorokini, prorok, prorokini

No one ventured to contradict the missionary, whose excited tone contrasted curiously with his naturally calm expression. No doubt his anger arose from the hardships to which the Mormons were actually subjected. The government had just succeeded, with some difficulty, in reducing these independent fanatics to its rule.

contrasted - skontrastowane; kontrast, kontrast, kontrastować, kontrastować

arose from - powstało z

It had made itself master of Utah, and subjected that territory to the laws of the Union, after imprisoning Brigham Young on a charge of rebellion and polygamy. The disciples of the prophet had since redoubled their efforts, and resisted, by words at least, the authority of Congress. Elder Hitch, as is seen, was trying to make proselytes on the railway trains.

prophet - prorokiem; prorok, prorokini

Then, emphasizing his words with his loud voice and frequent gestures, he related the history of the Mormons from Biblical times. He told how in Israel, a Mormon prophet of the tribe of Joseph published the annals of the new religion, and bequeathed them to his Mormon son; how, many centuries later, a translation of this precious book, which was written in Egyptian, was made by Joseph Smith, Jr.

mystical - mistyczny

messenger - posłaniec, posłannik, kurier, wysłannik

Several of the audience, not being much interested in the missionary's narrative, here left the car; but Elder Hitch, continuing his lecture, related how Smith, Jr.

lecture - wykład; wykładać

, with his father, two brothers, and a few disciples, founded the church of the "Latter Day Saints," which, adopted not only in America, but in England, Norway and Sweden and Germany, counts many artisans, as well as men engaged in the liberal professions, among its members; how a colony was established in Ohio, a temple erected there at a cost of two hundred thousand dollars, and a town built at Kirkland; how Smith became an enterprising banker, and received from a simple mummy showman a papyrus scroll written by Abraham and several famous Egyptians.

reduced - zmniejszona; zmniejszać, zmniejszyć, obniżać, obniżyć

But this did not disconcert the enthusiast, who proceeded with the story of Joseph Smith's bankruptcy in 1837, and how his ruined creditors gave him a coat of tar and feathers; his reappearance some years afterwards, more honorable and honored than ever, at Independence, Missouri, the chief of a flourishing colony of three thousand disciples, and his pursuit thence by outraged Gentiles, and retirement in the Far West.

Ten hearers only were now left, among them honest Passepartout, who was listening with all ears.

hearers - słuchacze; słuchacz

Thus he learned that, after long persecutions, Smith reappeared in Illinois, and in 1839 founded a community at Nauvoo, on the Mississippi, numbering twenty-five thousand souls, of which he became mayor, chief justice and general-in-chief; that he announced himself, in 1843, as a candidate for the Presidency of the United States; and that finally, being drawn into ambush at Carthage, he was thrown into prison, and assassinated by a band of men disguised in masks.

Passepartout was now the only person left in the car.

The Elder, looking him full in the face, reminded him that, two years after the assassination of Joseph Smith, the inspired prophet, Brigham Young, his successor, left Nauvoo for the banks of the Great Salt Lake, where, in the midst of that fertile region, directly on the route of the emigrants who crossed Utah on their way to California, the new colony, thanks to the polygamy practised by the Mormons, had flourished beyond expectations.

emigrants - emigrantów; emigrant, emigrantka

"And this," added Elder William Hitch, "is why the jealousy of Congress has been aroused against us! Why have the soldiers of the Union invaded the soil of Utah? Why has Brigham Young, our chief, been imprisoned, in contempt of all justice? Shall we yield to force? Never!

jealousy - zazdrość; zawiść

invaded - zaatakowany; napadać, napaść, najeżdżać, najechać, zajmować

Driven from Vermont, driven from Illinois, driven from Ohio, driven from Missouri, driven from Utah, we shall yet find some independent territory on which to plant our tents. And you, my brother," continued the Elder, fixing his angry eyes upon his single hearer, "will you not plant yours there, too, under the shadow of our flag?"

tents - namioty; namiot

hearer - słuchacz

shadow - cień

"No!" replied Passepartout courageously, in his turn retiring from the car, and leaving the Elder to preach to vacancy.

courageously - odważnie

preach - głosić, kazać

vacancy - wakat

During the lecture the train had been making good progress, and towards half-past twelve it reached the northwest border of the Great Salt Lake. Here the passengers could observe the vast extent of this interior sea, which is also called the Dead Sea, and into which flows an American Jordan.

border - granica; graniczyć

Dead Sea - Morze Martwe

flows - przepływy; płynąć, przepływać, opływać

It is a picturesque lake, framed in lofty crags in large strata, encrusted with white salt"a superb sheet of water, which was formerly of larger space than now, its shores having encroached with the lapse of time, and thus at once reduced its breadth and increased its depth.

encroached - naruszone; naruszać

lapse - przepadać; błąd, pomyłka, potknięcie

The Salt Lake, seventy miles long and thirty-five wide, is situated three miles, eight hundred feet above the sea. Quite different from Lake Asphaltite, whose depression is twelve hundred feet below the sea, it contains considerable salt, and one quarter of the weight of its water is solid matter, its specific weight being 1,170, and, after being distilled, 1,000.

miles long - (ileś) mil długości

contains - zawierać, zawierać

weight - ciężar, waga, ciężarek, odważnik

Fishes are, of course, unable to live in it, and those which descend through the Jordan, the Weber, and other streams soon perish.

Weber - weber

perish - ginąć, zginąć

The country around the lake was well cultivated, for the Mormons are mostly farmers; while ranches and pens for domesticated animals, fields of wheat, corn and other cereals, luxuriant prairies, hedges of wild rose, clumps of acacias and milk-wort, would have been seen six months later. Now the ground was covered with a thin powdering of snow.

The train reached Ogden at two o'clock, where it rested for six hours. Mr. Fogg and his party had time to pay a visit to Salt Lake City, connected with Ogden by a branch road. They spent two hours in this strikingly American town, built on the pattern of other cities of the Union, like a checker-board, "with the sombre sadness of right-angles," as Victor Hugo expresses it.

The founder of the City of the Saints could not escape from the taste for symmetry which distinguishes the Anglo-Saxons. In this strange country, where the people are certainly not up to the level of their institutions, everything is done "squarely""cities, houses and follies.

The travelers, then, were promenading, at three o'clock, about the streets of the town built between the banks of the Jordan and the spurs of the Wahsatch Range. They saw few or no churches, but the prophet's mansion, the courthouse, and the arsenal, blue-brick houses with verandas and porches, surrounded by gardens bordered with acacias, palms and locusts.

courthouse - gmach sądu

porches - ganki; ganek, przedsionek, portyk

locusts - szarańcza

A clay and pebble wall, built in 1853, surrounded the town. In the principal street were the market and several hotels adorned with pavilions. The place did not seem thickly populated. The streets were almost deserted, except in the vicinity of the temple, which they only reached after having traversed several quarters surrounded by palisades.

There were many women, which was easily accounted for by the "peculiar institution" of the Mormons; but it must not be supposed that all the Mormons are polygamists.

accounted - rozliczane; sprawozdanie, konto, rachunek, księgowość, relacja

polygamists - poligamiści; poligamista

They are free to marry or not, as they please; but it is worth noting that it is mainly the female citizens of Utah who are anxious to marry, as, according to the Mormon religion, maiden ladies are not admitted to the possession of its highest joys. These poor creatures seemed to be neither well off nor happy.

mainly - głównie

female - kobieta; żeński; samica

citizens - obywatele; obywatel, obywatelka, mieszkaniec, obywatel

Some"the more well-to-do, no doubt"wore short, open black silk dresses, under a hood or modest shawl; others were clothed in Indian fashion.

hood - zakrywać kapturem; kaptur, klosz, okap

Passepartout could not behold without a certain fright these women, charged, in groups; with conferring happiness on a single Mormon. His common sense pitied, above all, the husband.

fright - przerażenie; strach, trwoga

conferring - konferencji; wiecować

Happiness - szczęście, radość

pitied - żałowany; współczucie

It seemed to him a terrible thing to have to guide so many wives at once across the vicissitudes of life, and to conduct them, as it were, in a body to the Mormon paradise, with the prospect of seeing them in the company of the glorious Smith, who doubtless was the chief ornament of that delightful place, to all eternity.

vicissitudes - zmienność

glorious - wspaniały

eternity - wieczność

He felt decidedly repelled from such a vocation, and he imagined"perhaps he was mistaken"that the fair ones of Salt Lake City cast rather alarming glances on his person. Happily, his stay there was but brief. At four the party found themselves again at the station, took their places in the train, and the whistle sounded for starting.

repelled - odepchnięty; odpychać

vocation - powołanie, posłannictwo

alarming - niepokojące; alarm, alarm, alarm, budzik, alarm, alarmować

glances - spojrzenia; zerkać, zerknąć, rzucać okiem, rzucić okiem

Just at the moment however, that the locomotive wheels began to move, cries of "Stop! Stop!" were heard.

Trains, like time and tide, stop for no one. The gentleman who uttered the cries was evidently a belated Mormon. He was breathless with running. Happily for him, the station had neither gates nor barriers. He rushed along the track, jumped on the rear platform of the train, and fell, exhausted, into one of the seats.

belated - spóźniony

breathless - zdyszany, zapierający dech

barriers - bariery; bariera, barierka, bariera, przeszkoda, bariera

Passepartout, who had been anxiously watching this amateur gymnast, approached him with lively interest, and learned that he had taken flight after an unpleasant domestic scene.

amateur - amator, amatorka, amatorski

When the Mormon had recovered his breath, Passepartout ventured to ask him politely how many wives he had; for, from the manner in which he had decamped, it might be thought that he had twenty at least.

breath - oddech, oddychanie

decamped - wyjechał; zwiewać, zwiać

"One, sir," replied the Mormon, raising his arms heavenward""one, and that is enough!"

Chapter 28. In Which Passepartout Does Not Succeed in Making Anybody listen to reason

listen to reason - słuchać głosu rozsądku

The train, on leaving Great Salt Lake at Ogden, passed northward for an hour as far as Weber River, having completed nearly nine hundred miles from San Francisco. From this point it took an easterly direction towards the jagged Wahsatch Mountains.

jagged - (jaggy) postrzępiony, poszarpany, wyszczerbiony

It was in the section included between this range and the Rocky Mountains that the American engineers found the most formidable difficulties in laying the road, and that the government granted a subsidy of forty-eight thousand dollars per mile, instead of sixteen thousand allowed for the work done on the plains.

laying - układanie; (lay) kłaść; kładzenie, położenie

subsidy - dotacja; subwencja

allowed - dozwolone; pozwalać, pozwolić, przyznać, wziąć pod uwagę

But the engineers, instead of violating nature, avoided its difficulties by winding around, instead of penetrating the rocks. One tunnel only, fourteen thousand feet in length, was pierced in order to arrive at the great basin.

violating - naruszenie; naruszać, pogwałcać

winding - nawijanie; (wind) wiać, przewijać, pozbawić tchu; wiatr; zakole

rocks - skały; kołysać, wstrząsnąć; skała; rockowy

tunnel - tunel

pierced - przebity; przeszywać, przekłuć, przebić

The track up to this time had reached its highest elevation at the Great Salt Lake. From this point it described a long curve, descending towards Bitter Creek Valley, to rise again to the dividing ridge of the waters between the Atlantic and the Pacific. There were many creeks in this mountainous region, and it was necessary to cross Muddy Creek, Green Creek and others, upon culverts.

elevation - elewacja; podniesienie

curve - zakręt; krzywa

Bitter - gorzki, rozgoryczony; zaciekle

mountainous region - region górski

Muddy - błotnisty; zabłocony, mętny

culverts - przepusty; przepust

Passepartout grew more and more impatient as they went on, while Fix longed to get out of this difficult region, and was more anxious than Phileas Fogg himself to be beyond the danger of delays and accidents, and set foot on English soil.

At ten o'clock at night the train stopped at Fort Bridger station, and twenty minutes later entered Wyoming Territory, following the valley of Bitter Creek throughout. The next day, December 7th, they stopped for a quarter of an hour at Green River station. Snow had fallen heavily during the night, but, being mixed with rain, it had half melted, and did not interrupt their progress.

Wyoming - Wyoming

melted - stopiony; topnieć, stopnieć, topić się, stopić się, topić

The bad weather, however, annoyed Passepartout; for the accumulation of snow, by blocking the wheels of the cars, would certainly have been fatal to Mr. Fogg's tour.

accumulation - akumulacja

blocking - (block) blokować; blok, blokowanie

"What an idea!" he said to himself. "Why did my master make this journey in winter? Couldn't he have waited for the good season to increase his chances?"

While the worthy Frenchman was absorbed in the state of the sky and the depression of the temperature, Aouda was experiencing fears from a totally different cause.

absorbed in - być pochłoniętym przez

temperature - temperatura; gorączka

experiencing - doświadczanie; doświadczenie

totally - całkowicie; totalnie, zupełnie, bezwzględnie

Several passengers had got off at Green River, and were walking up and down the platforms. Among these Aouda recognized Colonel Stamp Proctor, the same man who had so grossly insulted Phileas Fogg at the San Francisco meeting. Not wishing to be recognized, the young woman drew back from the window, feeling much alarm at her discovery.

grossly - rażąco; sprośnie, grubiańsko, wielce, mocno

insulted - obrażony; obrazić, obrażać, zniewaga, wyzwisko

She was attached to the man who, however coldly, gave her daily evidences of the most absolute devotion. She did not comprehend, perhaps, the depth of the sentiment with which her protector inspired her, which she called gratitude, but which, though she was unconscious of it, was really more than that. Her heart sank within her when she recognized the man whom Mr.

evidences - dowód, dowód, dowody-p, udowodnić, dowodzić, udowadniać

absolute - bezwzględny, bezwarunkowy, absolutny, absolut

sank - zatonął; tonąć, topić, zanurzać, zatapiać, zatopić, zlew

Fogg desired, sooner or later, to call to account for his conduct. Chance alone, it was clear, had brought Colonel Proctor on this train; but there he was, and it was necessary, at all hazards, that Phileas Fogg should not perceive his adversary.

desired - pożądane; pragnąć, pożądać, pożądać, pragnienie

Aouda seized a moment when Mr. Fogg was asleep to tell Fix and

Passepartout whom she had seen.

"That Proctor on this train!" cried Fix. "Well, reassure yourself, madam. Before he settles with Mr. Fogg, he has got to deal with me! It seems to me that I was the more insulted of the two."

settles - osiada; rozstrzygać, osiedlać się, zasiedlać, ustalać

"And, besides," added Passepartout, "I'll take charge of him, colonel as he is."

"Mr. Fix," resumed Aouda, "Mr. Fogg will allow no one to avenge him. He said that he would come back to America to find this man. Should he perceive Colonel Proctor, we could not prevent a collision which might have terrible results. He must not see him."

avenge - mścić

collision - kolizja, zderzenie

"You are right, madam," replied Fix. "A meeting between them might ruin all. Whether he were victorious or beaten, Mr. Fogg would be delayed, and""

victorious - zwycięski

"And," added Passepartout, "that would play the game of the gentlemen of the Reform Club. In four days we shall be in New York. Well, if my master does not leave this car during those four days, we may hope that chance will not bring him face to face with this confounded American. We must, if possible, prevent his stirring out of it."

confounded - wprawić w zakłopotanie, pomylić, pomieszać szyki

stirring - (stir) wymieszać, poruszać, ruszać; powstawanie, zaczątek

The conversation dropped. Mr. Fogg had just awakened, and was looking out of the window. Soon after Passepartout, without being heard by his master or Aouda, whispered to the detective, "Would you really fight for him?"

"I would do anything," replied Fix, in a tone which betrayed determined will, "to get him back living to Europe!"

Passepartout felt something like a shudder shoot through his frame, but his confidence in his master remained unbroken.

shudder - dreszcz; wzdrygać

shoot through - przestrzelić; umknąć, wymknąć się; przeszywać coś (np. ból)

frame - oprawiać; komponować; wrabiać; rama; klatka, ramka, kadr

Was there any means of detaining Mr. Fogg in the car, to avoid a meeting between him and the colonel? It ought not to be a difficult task, since that gentleman was naturally sedentary and little curious. The detective, at least, seemed to have found a way; for, after a few moments, he said to Mr. Fogg, "These are long and slow hours, sir, that we are passing on the railway."

detaining - zatrzymanie; zatrzymywać, zatrzymać

sedentary - siedzący tryb życia

passing on - przekazywać; odejść (umrzeć); pass on something odmówić; odrzucić czemuś

"Yes," replied Mr. Fogg, "but they pass."

"You were in the habit of playing whist," resumed Fix, "on the steamers."

"Yes; but it would be difficult to do so here. I have neither cards nor partners."

"Oh, but we can easily buy some cards, for they are sold on all the American trains. And as for partners, if madam plays""

"Certainly, sir," Aouda quickly replied, "I understand whist. It is part of an English education."

"I myself have some pretensions to playing a good game. Well, here are three of us, and a dummy""

pretensions - pretensje; pretensja

dummy - głupek; manekin, kukła, atrapa, dziadek

"As you please, sir," replied Phileas Fogg, heartily glad to resume his favorite pastime"even on the railway.

pastime - rozrywka

Passepartout was despatched in search of the steward, and soon returned with two packs of cards, some pins, counters and a shelf covered with cloth.

pins - szpilki; spinać szpilkami, przypinać, upinać, przyszpilić

counters - liczniki; opierać, odpierać; lada, bufet, licznik, okienko

shelf - półka, regał

The game commenced. Aouda understood whist sufficiently well, and even received some compliments on her playing from Mr. Fogg. As for the detective, he was adept, and worthy of being matched against his present opponent.

compliments - komplementy; komplement, pochwała, pochlebstwo

adept - ekspert, ekspertka, mistrz, mistrzyni

matched - dopasowane; pasować; zapałka, osoba dorównująca komuś

opponent - przeciwnik, przeciwniczka, oponent, oponentka

"Now," thought Passepartout, "we've got him. He won't budge."

At eleven in the morning the train had reached the dividing ridge of the waters at Bridger Pass, seven thousand five hundred and twenty-four feet above the level of the sea, one of the highest points attained by the track in crossing the Rocky Mountains.

attained - osiągnięty; osiągać, osiągnąć

After going about two hundred miles, the travelers at last found themselves on one of those vast plains which extend to the Atlantic, and which nature has made so propitious for laying the iron road.

extend - przedłużyć, wydłużyć, rozciągnąć

On the declivity of the Atlantic basin the first streams, branches of the North Platte River, already appeared. The whole northern and eastern horizon was bounded by the immense semi-circular curtain which is formed by the southern portion of the Rocky Mountains, the highest being Laramie Peak. Between this and the railway extended vast plains, plentifully irrigated.

curtain - zasłona, kurtyna, firana, firanka, zasłonić

At half-past twelve the travelers caught sight for an instant of Fort Halleck, which commands that section. In a few more hours the Rocky Mountains were crossed. There was reason to hope, then, that no accident would mark the journey through this difficult country. The snow had ceased falling, and the air became crisp and cold.

mark - znak; Marek, Margusz, Markusz, Merkusz, Ewangelia Marka

journey through - podróżować przez

Large birds, frightened by the locomotive, rose and flew off in the distance. No wild beast appeared on the plain. It was a desert in its vast nakedness.

After a comfortable breakfast, served in the car, Mr. Fogg and his partners had just resumed whist, when a violent whistling was heard, and the train stopped. Passepartout put his head out of the door, but saw nothing to cause the delay. No station was in view.

Aouda and Fix feared that Mr. Fogg might take it into his head to get out, but that gentleman contented himself with saying to his servant, "See what is the matter."

Passepartout rushed out of the car. Thirty or forty passengers had already descended, amongst them Colonel Stamp Proctor.

amongst - wśród

The train had stopped before a red signal which blocked the way. The engineer and conductor were talking excitedly with a signal-man, whom the station-master at Medicine Bow, the next stopping place, had sent on before. The passengers drew around and took part in the discussion, in which Colonel Proctor, with his insolent manner, was conspicuous.

blocked - zablokowany; blok, blok

excitedly - podekscytowany

conspicuous - widoczny, zauważalny, rzucający się w oczy, niezwykły, rażący

Passepartout, joining the group, heard the signal-man say, "No! You can't pass. The bridge at Medicine Bow is shaky, and would not bear the weight of the train."

shaky - chwiejny, słaby, niepewny

bear - nosić, ścierpieć, wytrzymać, rodzić, znosić; niedźwiedź

This was a suspension-bridge thrown over some rapids, about a mile from the place where they now were. According to the signal-man, it was in a ruinous condition, several of the iron wires being broken; and it was impossible to risk the passage. He did not in any way exaggerate the condition of the bridge.

suspension - zawieszenie

thrown over - rzucony, przerzucony; narzucony (coś na kogoś, np. koc); porzucony

rapids - bystrza; szybki, bystrzyna, bystrze

ruinous - rujnujące; rujnujący; zrujnowany

exaggerate - przesadzić; wyolbrzymiać, przesadzać

It may be taken for granted that, rash as the Americans usually are, when they are prudent there is good reason for it.

Passepartout, not daring to tell his master what he heard, listened with set teeth, immovable as a statue.

immovable - nieruchomy, niewzruszony

"Hum!" cried Colonel Proctor, "but we are not going to stay here,

I imagine, and take root in the Snow?"

root - zakorzeniać się, grzebać; korzeń, podstawa, źródło, rdzeń

"Colonel," replied the conductor, "we have telegraphed to Omaha for a train, but it is not likely that it will reach Medicine Bow in less than six hours."

telegraphed - telegraficznie; telegraf, telegrafować, zatelegrafować

"Six hours!" cried Passepartout.

"Certainly," returned the conductor, "besides, it will take us as long as that to reach Medicine Bow on foot."

"But it is only a mile from here," said one of the passengers.

"Yes, but it's on the other side of the river."

"And can't we cross that in a boat?" asked the colonel.

"That's impossible. The creek is swelled by the rains. It is a rapid, and we shall have to make a circuit of ten miles to the north to find a ford."

swelled - spuchnięte; pęcznieć, spuchnąć, nabrzmiewać

circuit - obieg; obwód; obchód

ford - bród; przeprawić

The colonel launched a volley of oaths, denouncing the railway company and the conductor. Passepartout, who was furious, could not help but agree with him. Here was an obstacle, indeed, which all his master's banknotes could not remove.

launched - uruchomiony; puszczać, wprowadzać; łódź motorowa, szalupa

oaths - przysięgi; przysięga, klątwa

denouncing - potępienie; zadenuncjować, potępić, wypowiedzieć

remove - usuwać, usunąć, odejmować, odjąć

There was a general disappointment among the passengers, who, without reckoning the delay, saw themselves compelled to trudge fifteen miles over a plain covered with snow. They grumbled and protested, and would certainly have thus attracted Phileas Fogg's attention if he had not been completely absorbed in his game.

reckoning - liczyć; rozliczenie

compelled - zmuszony; zmuszać, zmusić

trudge - mozolny chód, forsowny marsz; brnąć, iść z trudem

grumbled - narzekać; narzekanie, pomruk, burczenie

protested - protestował; protestować, zaprotestować, protest, protest

Passepartout found that he could not avoid telling his master what had occurred, and, with hanging head, he was turning towards the car, when the engineer"a true Yankee, named Forster"called out, "Gentlemen, perhaps there is a way, after all, to get over."

"On the bridge?" asked a passenger.

"On the bridge."

"With our train?"

"With our train."

Passepartout stopped short, and eagerly listened to the engineer.

"But the bridge is unsafe," urged the conductor.

unsafe - niebezpieczne; niebezpieczny

"No matter," replied Forster; "I think that by putting on the very highest speed we might have a chance of getting over."

"The devil!" muttered Passepartout.

But a number of the passengers were at once attracted by the engineer's proposal, and Colonel Proctor was especially delighted, and found the plan a very feasible one. He told stories about engineers leaping their trains over rivers without bridges, by putting on full steam; and many of those present avowed themselves of the engineer's mind.

proposal - propozycja, oferta, wniosek, oświadczyny

leaping - skoczyć, przeskoczyć, skakać; skok

avowed - oświadczać, wyznawać, przyznawać się

"We have fifty chances out of a hundred of getting over," said one.

"Eighty! ninety!"

Passepartout was astounded, and, though ready to attempt anything to get over Medicine Creek, thought the experiment proposed a little too American. "Besides," thought he, "there's a still more simple way, and it does not even occur to any of these people! Sir," said he aloud to one of the passengers, "the engineer's plan seems to me a little dangerous, but""

astounded - wprawić, zdumieć

experiment - eksperyment, doświadczenie, próba, eksperymentować

aloud - głośno

"Eighty chances!" replied the passenger, turning his back on him.

"I know it," said Passepartout, turning to another passenger, "but a simple idea""

"Ideas are no use," returned the American, shrugging his shoulders, "as the engineer assures us that we can pass."

shrugging - wzruszenie ramionami; wzruszenie ramionami

assures - zabezpieczyć, asekurować, pilnować, ubezpieczać, zapewniać

"Doubtless," urged Passepartout, "we can pass, but perhaps it would be more prudent""

more prudent - bardziej rozważny, przezorny, roztropny

"What! Prudent!" cried Colonel Proctor, whom this word seemed to excite prodigiously. "At full speed, don't you see, at full speed!"

excite - ekscytować, podniecać, rozbudzać

prodigiously - cudownie

"I know"I see," repeated Passepartout; "but it would be, if not more prudent, since that word displeases you, at least more natural""

displeases - denerwować, drażnić, irytować, podrażniać, podrażnić, urażać

more natural - bardziej naturalny

"Who! What! What's the matter with this fellow?" cried several.

The poor fellow did not know to whom to address himself.

"Are you afraid?" asked Colonel Proctor.

"I afraid! Very well; I will show these people that a Frenchman can be as American as they!"

"All aboard!" cried the conductor.

"Yes, all aboard!" repeated Passepartout, and immediately. "But they can't prevent me from thinking that it would be more natural for us to cross the bridge on foot, and let the train come after!"

But no one heard this sage reflection, nor would anyone have acknowledged its justice. The passengers resumed their places in the cars. Passepartout took his seat without telling what had passed. The whist-players were quite absorbed in their game.

acknowledged - uznany; przyznawać, przyznać, uznawać, uznać

players - graczy; gracz, graczka, zawodnik, zawodniczka, aktor, aktorka

The locomotive whistled vigorously. The engineer, reversing the steam, backed the train for nearly a mile"retiring, like a jumper, in order to take a longer leap. Then, with another whistle, he began to move forward. The train increased its speed, and soon its rapidity became frightful. A prolonged screech issued from the locomotive. The piston worked up and down twenty strokes to the second.

whistled - gwizdnął; gwizdek, piszczałka, gwizd, świst, gwizd, gwizd

reversing - (reverse) odwracać, zmieniać, cofać; odwracanie, cofanie

prolonged - przedłużony

They perceived that the whole train, rushing on at the rate of a hundred miles an hour, hardly bore upon the rails at all.

hardly - mało; ledwo

And they passed over! It was like a flash. No one saw the bridge. The train leaped, so to speak, from one bank to the other, and the engineer could not stop it until it had gone five miles beyond the station. But scarcely had the train passed the river, when the bridge, completely ruined, fell with a crash into the rapids of Medicine Bow.

crash into - zderzyć się z czymś

Chapter 29. In Which Certain Incidents Are Narrated Which Are Only to Be Met with on American Railroads

The train pursued its course, that evening, without interruption, passing Fort Saunders, crossing Cheyne Pass, and reaching Evans Pass.

Thirteen hundred and eighty-two miles had been passed over from San Francisco, in three days and three nights. Four days and nights more would probably bring them to New York. Phileas Fogg was not as yet behind time.

During the night Camp Walbach was passed on the left. Lodge Pole Creek ran parallel with the road, marking the boundary between the territories of Wyoming and Colorado. They entered Nebraska at eleven, passed near Sedgwick, and touched at Julesburg, on the southern branch of the Platte River.

Thus was celebrated the inauguration of this great railroad, a mighty instrument of progress and civilization, thrown across the desert, and destined to link together cities and towns which do not yet exist. The whistle of the locomotive, more powerful than Amphion's lyre, was about to bid them rise from American soil.

At nine the train stopped at the important town of North Platte, built between the two arms of the river, which rejoin each other around it and form a single artery"a large tributary whose waters empty into the Missouri a little above Omaha.

artery - tętnicy; tętnica, arteria

tributary - dopływ

The one hundred and first meridian was passed.

Mr. Fogg and his partners had resumed their game; no one"not even the dummy"complained of the length of the trip. Fix had begun by winning several guineas, which he seemed likely to lose; but he showed himself a not less eager whist-player than Mr. Fogg. During the morning, chance distinctly favored that gentleman. Trumps and honors were showered upon his hands.

complained - narzekał; narzekać, skarżyć się, skarżyć, składać skargę

Once, having resolved on a bold stroke, he was on the point of playing a spade, when a voice behind him said, "I should play a diamond."

diamond - diament

Mr. Fogg, Aouda and Fix raised their heads, and beheld Colonel


Stamp Proctor and Phileas Fogg recognized each other at once.

"Ah! It's you, is it, Englishman?" cried the colonel. "It's you who are going to play a spade!"

"And who plays it," replied Phileas Fogg coolly, throwing down the ten of spades.

throwing down - zrzucić coś; rzucić (się) w dół

spades - łopata, pik

"Well, it pleases me to have it diamonds," replied Colonel

Proctor, in an insolent tone.

He made a movement as if to seize the card which had just been played, adding, "You don't understand anything about whist."

seize - przejąć; chwycić, złapać, chwytać, łapać

"Perhaps I do, as well as another," said Phileas Fogg, rising.

"You have only to try, son of John Bull," replied the colonel.

Bull - byk

Aouda turned pale, and her blood ran cold. She seized Mr. Fogg's arm and gently pulled him back. Passepartout was ready to pounce upon the American, who was staring insolently at his opponent. But Fix got up, and, going to Colonel Proctor said, "You forget that it is I with whom you have to deal, sir; for it was I whom you not only insulted, but struck!"

pounce - odskoczyć; skakać, rzucić się

insolently - arogancko, bezczelnie, bezwstydnie, impertynencko

"Mr. Fix," said Mr. Fogg, "pardon me, but this affair is mine, and mine only. The colonel has again insulted me, by insisting that I should not play a spade, and he shall give me satisfaction for it."

"When and where you will," replied the American, "and with whatever weapon you choose."

weapon - broń, oręż

Aouda in vain attempted to retain Mr. Fogg. As vainly did the detective endeavor to make the quarrel his. Passepartout wished to throw the colonel out of the window, but a sign from his master cheeked him. Phileas Fogg left the car, and the American followed him upon the platform. "Sir," said Mr.

vainly - na próżno, nadaremnie

endeavor - dążenie, próba, usiłowanie, przedsięwzięcie, usiłować

quarrel - sprzeczać się; kłótnia, sprzeczka, swary, spór, zarzut

Fogg to his adversary, "I am in a great hurry to get back to Europe, and any delay whatever will be greatly to my disadvantage."

"Well, What's that to me?" replied Colonel Proctor.

What's that to me? - Co mnie to obchodzi?

"Sir," said Mr. Fogg, very politely, "after our meeting at San Francisco, I determined to return to America and find you as soon as I had completed the business which called me to England."


"Will you appoint a meeting for six months hence?"

appoint - mianować, wyznaczać

hence - skąd; stąd; więc, skutkiem tego, w związku z tym, przeto

"Why not ten years hence?"

"I say six months," returned Phileas Fogg, "and I shall be at the place of meeting promptly."

"All this is an evasion," cried Stamp Proctor. "Now or never!"

evasion - uchylanie się, przetrwanie, opór w niewoli

"Very good. You are going to New York?"


"To Chicago?"

Chicago - Chicago


"To Omaha?"

"What difference is it to you? Do you know Plum Creek?"

"No," replied Mr. Fogg.

"It's the next station. The train will be there in an hour, and will stop there ten minutes. In ten minutes several revolver shots could be exchanged."

shots - strzały; pędzić, przerywać, strzelać; strzał, wystrzał, rzut

"Very well," said Mr. Fogg. "I will stop at Plum Creek."

"And I guess you'll stay there too," added the American insolently.

"Who knows?" replied Mr. Fogg, returning to the car as coolly as usual. He began to reassure Aouda, telling her that blusterers were never to be feared, and begged Fix to be his second at the approaching duel, a request which the detective could not refuse. Mr. Fogg resumed the interrupted game with perfect calmness.

duel - pojedynek; pojedynkować, potykać

calmness - spokój

At eleven o'clock the locomotive's whistle announced that they were approaching Plum Creek station. Mr. Fogg rose, and, followed by Fix, went out upon the platform. Passepartout accompanied him, carrying a pair of revolvers. Aouda remained in the car, as pale as death.

as pale as death - blady jak śmierć

The door of the next car opened, and Colonel Proctor appeared on the platform, attended by a Yankee of his own stamp as his second. But just as the combatants were about to step from the train, the conductor hurried up, and shouted, "You can't get off, gentlemen!"

attended - uczestniczył; towarzyszyć, opiekować się, uczęszczać

combatants - bojownicy; kombatant, kombatantka, bojownik, bojowniczka

"Why not?" asked the colonel.

"We are twenty minutes late, and we shall not stop."

"But I am going to fight a duel with this gentleman."

"I am sorry," said the conductor; "but we shall be off at once.

There's the bell ringing now."

ringing - dzwonienie

The train started.

"I'm really very sorry,"" said the conductor. "Under any other circumstances I should have been happy to oblige you. But, after all, as you have not had time to fight here, why not fight as we go along?"

oblige - zobowiązywać, zobowiązać

"That wouldn't be convenient, perhaps, for this gentleman," said the colonel, in a jeering tone.

jeering - (jeer) wyszydzić, wyśmiać; gwizdy, drwiny; szyderczy, złośliwy

"It would be perfectly so," replied Phileas Fogg.

"Well, we are really in America," thought Passepartout, "and the conductor is a gentleman of the first order!"

first order - pierwszego rzędu; pierwsze zamówienie

So muttering, he followed his master.

The two combatants, their seconds, and the conductor passed through the cars to the rear of the train. The last car was only occupied by a dozen passengers, whom the conductor politely asked if they would not be so kind as to leave it vacant for a few moments, as two gentlemen had an affair of honor to settle.

vacant - wolne; wolny

settle - osiedlić się; rozstrzygać, osiedlać się, zasiedlać, ustalać

The passengers granted the request with alacrity, and straightway disappeared on the platform.

The car, which was some fifty feet long, was very convenient for their purpose. The adversaries might march on each other in the aisle, and fire at their ease. Never was duel more easily arranged. Mr. Fogg and Colonel Proctor, each provided with two six-barreled revolvers, entered the car. The seconds, remaining outside, shut them in.

fire at - strzelać do kogoś; czegoś

ease - złagodzić, ułatwić, odciążyć, uwalniać; łatwość, swoboda

They were to begin firing at the first whistle of the locomotive. After an interval of two minutes, what remained of the two gentlemen would be taken from the car.

firing at - strzelać do kogoś; czegoś

interval - interwał, odstęp, interwał, przedział

Nothing could be more simple. Indeed, it was all so simple that Fix and Passepartout felt their hearts beating as if they would crack. They were listening for the whistle agreed upon, when suddenly savage cries resounded in the air, accompanied by reports which certainly did not issue from the car where the duelists were. The reports continued in front and the whole length of the train.

hearts - serca; serce

issue from - kwestia; problem z (np. biblijnej perpsektywy); wypływać z czegoś, wydostawać się z czegoś

duelists - pojedynkowiczów

Cries of terror proceeded from the interior of the cars.

Colonel Proctor and Mr. Fogg, revolvers in hand, hastily quitted their prison, and rushed forward where the noise was most clamorous. They then perceived that the train was attacked by a band of Sioux.

quitted - zrezygnował; opuszczać, porzucić, rzucać, odchodzić

clamorous - krzykliwy; hałaśliwy, gromki, głośny

This was not the first attempt of these daring Indians, for more than once they had waylaid trains on the road. A hundred of them had, according to their habit, jumped upon the steps without stopping the train, with the ease of a clown mounting a horse at full gallop.

waylaid - czaić się, napaść z zasadzki

gallop - cwał, galop, galopować, cwałować

The Sioux were armed with guns, from which came the reports, to which the passengers, who were almost all armed, responded by revolver shots.

The Indians had first mounted the engine, and half stunned the engineer and stoker with blows from their muskets. A Sioux chief, wishing to stop the train, but not knowing how to work the regulator, had opened wide instead of closing the steam-valve, and the locomotive was plunging forward with terrific velocity.

stunned - ogłuszać, ogłuszenie, ogłuszyć

stoker - palacz

muskets - muszkiety; muszkiet

regulator - regulator

valve - zawór, wentyl, zastawka

velocity - prędkość

The Sioux had at the same time invaded the cars, skipping like enraged monkeys over the roofs, thrusting open the doors, and fighting hand to hand with the passengers. Penetrating the baggage-car, they pillaged it, throwing the trunks out of the train. The cries and shots were constant. The travelers defended themselves bravely.

skipping - przeskakiwanie; opuścić, pomijać, unikać, wagarować

thrusting - (thrust) wsadzić, popchnąć, przepychać się; pchnięcie

Some of the cars were barricaded, and sustained a siege, like moving forts, carried along at a speed of a hundred miles an hour.

barricaded - zabarykadowany; barykada, barykada, barykadować, zabarykadować

siege - oblężenie

carried along - nosić (coś) ze sobą

Aouda behaved courageously from the first. She defended herself like a true heroine with a revolver, which she shot through the broken windows whenever a savage made his appearance. Twenty Sioux had fallen mortally wounded to the ground, and the wheels crushed those who fell upon the rails as if they had been worms. Several passengers, shot or stunned, lay on the seats.

behaved - zachowywał; zachowywać

heroine - bohaterka

shot through - przestrzelony

mortally - śmiertelnie

wounded - ranny; (wind) wiać, przewijać, owijać, pozbawić tchu

worms - robaki; robak, qualifier

lay on - położyć na (coś); dostarczać coś, zaopatrywać

It was necessary to put an end to the struggle, which had lasted for ten minutes, and which would result in the triumph of the Sioux if the train was not stopped. Fort Kearney station, where there was a garrison, was only two miles distant; but, that once passed, the Sioux would be masters of the train between Fort Kearney and the station beyond.

garrison - garnizon, koszary

The conductor was fighting beside Mr. Fogg, when he was shot and fell. At the same moment he cried, "Unless the train is stopped in five minutes, we are lost!"

shot - pędzić, przerywać, strzelać; strzał, wystrzał, rzut

"It shall be stopped," said Phileas Fogg, preparing to rush from the car.

"Stay, monsieur," cried Passepartout. "I will go."


Fogg had not time to stop the brave fellow, who, opening a door unperceived by the Indians, succeeded in slipping under the car; and while the struggle continued, and the balls whizzed across each other over his head, he made use of his old acrobatic experience, and with amazing agility worked his way under the cars, holding on to the chains, aiding himself by the brakes and edges of the sashes, creeping from one car to another with marvelous skill, and thus gaining the forward end of the train.

slipping - wślizgnąć się, poślizgnąć

whizzed - spec, gwizd, świst; bzyk, bzyczenie, objechać coś

agility - zwinność

holding on - zaczekać, poczekać; trzymać się, przytrzymać się; trzymać się (np. liny); trwać, przetrwać (robić coś trudnego)

brakes - hamulce; zahamować; hamulec, chaszcze, zarośla, gąszcz

sashes - szarfy; szarfa, wstęga, skrzydło okienne

There, suspended by one hand between the baggage-car and the tender, with the other he loosened the safety chains; but, owing to the traction, he would never have succeeded in unscrewing the yoking-bar, had not a violent concussion jolted this bar out. The train, now detached from the engine, remained a little behind, whilst the locomotive rushed forward with increased speed.

baggage - bagaż, balast; bagażowy

loosened - poluzować

traction - przyczepność; wyciąg

unscrewing - odkręcanie; odkręcać

yoking - jarzmo; (yoke) ujarzmić; rygiel; ujarzmiony

Carried on by the force already acquired, the train still moved for several minutes; but the brakes were worked and at last they stopped, less than a hundred feet from Kearney station.

acquired - nabyte; nabywać, nabyć

The soldiers of the fort, attracted by the shots, hurried up. The Sioux had not expected them, and decamped in a body before the train entirely stopped.

But when the passengers counted each other on the station platform several were found missing; among others the courageous Frenchman, whose devotion had just saved them.

courageous - odważny

Chapter 30. In Which Phileas Fogg Simply Does His Duty

Three passengers"including Passepartout"had disappeared. Had they been killed in the struggle? Were they taken prisoners by the Sioux? It was impossible to tell.

There were many wounded, but none mortally. Colonel Proctor was one of the most seriously hurt. He had fought bravely, and a ball had entered his groin. He was carried into the station with the other wounded passengers, to receive such attention as could be of help.

fought - walczył; walczyć, bić się; walka

groin - pachwina

Aouda was safe. Phileas Fogg, who had been in the thickest of the fight, had not received a scratch. Fix was slightly wounded in the arm. But Passepartout was not to be found, and tears coursed down Aouda's cheeks.

thickest - najgrubszy; gruby, gruby, gęsty

scratch - drapać, skrobać, rysa, zadrapanie

All the passengers had gotten out of the train, the wheels of which were stained with blood. From the tires and spokes hung ragged pieces of flesh. As far as the eye could reach on the white plain behind, red trails were visible. The last Sioux were disappearing in the south, along the banks of Republican River.

gotten - dostał

tires - opony; męczyć się, zmęczyć; opona

trails - szlaki; śledzić, tropić, trop, ślad, ścieżka

disappearing - znikać, zniknąć, porywać

Republican - republikański

Mr. Fogg, with folded arms, remained motionless. He had a serious decision to make. Aouda, standing near him, looked at him without speaking, and he understood her look. If his servant was a prisoner, ought he not to risk everything to rescue him from the Indians? "I will find him, living or dead," he said quietly to Aouda.

folded - złożone; zaginać, złożyć, składać, owinąć, spleść

decision - decyzja; zdecydowanie

"Ah, Mr."Mr. Fogg!" cried she, clasping his hands and covering them with tears.

covering - (cover) przykryć, nakryć, okryć, zakryć; pokrywa, pokrycie

"Living," added Mr. Fogg, "if we do not lose a moment."

Phileas Fogg, by this resolution, inevitably sacrificed himself. He pronounced his own doom. The delay of a single day would make him lose the steamer at New York, and his bet would be certainly lost. But as he thought, "It is my duty," he did not hesitate.

doom - sąd, osąd, wyrok, zguba, fatum, zagłada, groza

The commanding officer of Fort Kearney was there. A hundred of his soldiers had placed themselves in a position to defend the station, should the Sioux attack it.

attack - atak, napad, szturm

"Sir," said Mr. Fogg to the captain, "three passengers have disappeared."

"Dead?" asked the captain.

"Dead or prisoners. That is the uncertainty which must be solved.

uncertainty - niepewność

Do you propose to pursue the Sioux?"

"That's a serious thing to do, sir," returned the captain. "These Indians may retreat beyond the Arkansas, and I cannot leave the fort unprotected."

unprotected - bezbronny

"The lives of three men are in question, sir," said Phileas


"Doubtless, but can I risk the lives of fifty men to save three?"

"I don't know whether you can, sir, but you ought to do so.

"Nobody here," returned the other, "has a right to teach me my duty."

"Very well," said Mr. Fogg, coldly. "I will go alone."

"You, sir!" cried Fix, coming up. "You go alone in pursuit of the


"Would you have me leave this poor fellow to perish"him to whom everyone present owes his life? I shall go."

owes - winien; być zobowiązany, zawdzięczać, mieć dług, być winnym

"No, sir, you shall not go alone," cried the captain, touched in spite of himself. "No! You are a brave man. Thirty volunteers!" he added, turning to the soldiers.

volunteers - wolontariusze; wolontariusz, wolontariuszka, ochotnik

The whole company started forward at once. The captain had only to pick his men. Thirty were chosen, and an old sergeant placed at their head.

pick - wybrać; kilof, oskard, czekan, wytrych, wybór, prawo wyboru

"Thanks, captain," said Mr. Fogg.

"Will you let me go with you?" asked Fix.

"Do as you please, sir. But if you wish to do me a favor, you will remain with Aouda. In case anything should happen to me""

A sudden pallor overspread the detective's face. Separate himself from the man whom he had so persistently followed step by step! Leave him to wander about in this desert! Fix gazed attentively at Mr. Fogg, and, despite his suspicions and of the struggle which was going on within him, he lowered his eyes before that calm and frank look.

pallor - bladość

overspread - rozprzestrzeniać się; zakrywać, rozciągać

wander about - włóczyć się, przechadzać się

lowered - obniżone; (low) obniżać; niski; niższy

frank - mieć otwarte serce, szczery

"I will stay," he said.

A few moments later, Mr. Fogg pressed the young woman's hand, and, having confided to her his precious carpetbag, went off with the sergeant and his little squad. But, before going, he had said to the soldiers, "My friends, I will divide five thousand dollars among you, if we save the prisoners."

squad - skład; oddział

divide - dzielić, podzielić

It was then a little past noon.

Aouda retired to a waiting-room, and there she waited alone, thinking of the simple and noble generosity, the tranquil courage of Phileas Fogg. He had sacrificed his fortune, and was now risking his life, all without hesitation, from duty, in silence.

risking - ryzykując; ryzyko

Fix did not have the same thoughts, and could scarcely conceal his agitation. He walked feverishly up and down the platform, but soon resumed his outward composure. He now saw the folly of which he had been guilty in letting Fogg go alone. What! This man, whom he had just followed around the world, was permitted now to separate himself from him!

feverishly - gorączkowo

He began to accuse and abuse himself, and, as if he were director of police, administered to himself a sound lecture for his greenness.

accuse - oskarżać, oskarżyć

abuse - nadużycie, zniewaga

greenness - zieloność, niedojrzałość

"I have been an idiot!" he thought, "and this man will see it. He has gone, and won't come back! But how is it that I, who have in my pocket a warrant for his arrest, have been so fascinated by him? Decidedly, I am nothing but an ass!"

idiot - idiota, idiotka, głupek, głupiec

fascinated - zafascynowany; fascynować, zafascynować

ass - osioł, tyłek, głupek

So reasoned the detective, while the hours crept by all too slowly. He did not know what to do. Sometimes he was tempted to tell Aouda all, but he could not doubt how the young woman would receive his confidences. What course should he take? He thought of pursuing Fogg across the vast white plains. It did not seem impossible that he might overtake him. Footsteps were easily printed on the snow!

tempted - skuszony; kusić, nęcić, judzić, podjudzić

overtake - wyprzedzać, ogarniać, przeganiać

Footsteps - odgłos kroku, krok, ślad

But soon, under a new sheet, every imprint would be effaced.

imprint - odciskać; odcisk, nadruk

effaced - zatrzeć

Fix became discouraged. He felt a sort of insurmountable longing to abandon the game altogether. He could now leave Fort Kearney station, and pursue his journey homeward in peace.

altogether - w ogóle; całkowicie, całkiem, zupełnie, summa summarum

homeward - do domu, ku domowi

Towards two o'clock in the afternoon, while it was snowing hard, long whistles were heard approaching from the east. A great shadow, preceded by a wild light, slowly advanced, appearing still larger through the mist, which gave it a fantastic aspect. No train was expected from the east, neither had there been time for the help asked for by telegraph to arrive.

The train from Omaha to San Francisco was not due till the next day. The mystery was soon explained.

The locomotive, which was slowly approaching with deafening whistles, was that which, having been detached from the train, had continued its route with such terrific rapidity, carrying off the unconscious engineer and stoker. It had run several miles, when, the fire becoming low for want of fuel, the steam had slackened. It had finally stopped an hour after, some twenty miles beyond Fort Kearney.

carrying off - poradzić sobie (z czymś ); zdobyć coś, zdobywać coś (np. nagrodę, medal); usunąć siłą

fuel - paliwo; tankować

slackened - zwalniać, zmniejszać prędkość, poluźnić

Neither the engineer nor the stoker was dead. After remaining for some time in their swoon, they had come to themselves. The train had then stopped. The engineer, when he found himself in the desert, and the locomotive without cars, understood what had happened.

swoon - wpadać w zachwyt, być oszołomionym, omdlewać, mdleć; omdlenie

He could not imagine how the locomotive had become separated from the train, but he did not doubt that the train left behind was in distress.

He did not hesitate what to do. It would be prudent to continue on to Omaha, for it would be dangerous to return to the train, which the Indians might still be engaged in pillaging. Nevertheless, he began to rebuild the fire in the furnace; the pressure again mounted, and the locomotive returned, running backwards to Fort Kearney. This it was which was whistling in the mist.

be engaged - być zaangażowanym, zajętym, zaręczonym

pillaging - grabież; plądrować

rebuild - przebudować; odbudowywać, odbudować

furnace - piec

pressure - nacisk, ucisk, napór, presja, przymus, ciśnienie

backwards - tył

The travelers were glad to see the locomotive resume its place at the head of the train. They could now continue the journey so terribly interrupted.

Aouda, on seeing the locomotive come up, hurried out of the station, and asked the conductor, "Are you going to start?"

"At once, madam."

"But the prisoners, our unfortunate fellow-travelers""

"I cannot interrupt the trip," replied the conductor. "We are already three hours behind time."

"And when will another train pass here from San Francisco?"

"Tomorrow evening, madam."

"Tomorrow evening! But then it will be too late! We must wait""

"It is impossible," responded the conductor. "If you wish to go, please get in."

"I will not go," said Aouda.

Fix had heard this conversation. A little while before, when there was no prospect of proceeding on the journey, he had made up his mind to leave Fort Kearney; but now that the train was there, ready to start, and he had only to take his seat in the car, an irresistible influence held him back. The station platform burned his feet, and he could not stir.

The conflict in his mind again began; anger and failure stifled him. He wished to struggle on to the end.

conflict - konflikt, walka, batalia

failure - niepowodzenie, porażka, nieudacznictwo, nieudacznik, brak

Meanwhile the passengers and some of the wounded, among them Colonel Proctor, whose injuries were serious, had taken their places in the train. The buzzing of the overheated boiler was heard, and the steam was escaping from the valves. The engineer whistled, the train started, and soon disappeared, mingling its white smoke with the eddies of the densely falling snow.

injuries - urazy; szkoda, uraz, kontuzja

buzzing - (buzz) przelecieć, brzęczeć, buczeć; gwar, brzęczenie

overheated - przegrzany; przegrzewać, przegrzać, przegrzewać się

densely - gęsto

The detective had remained behind.

Several hours passed. The weather was dismal, and it was very cold. Fix sat motionless on a bench in the station. He might have been thought asleep. Aouda, despite the storm, kept coming out of the waiting-room, going to the end of the platform, and peering through the tempest of snow, as if to pierce the mist which narrowed the horizon around her, and to hear, if possible, some welcome sound.

dismal - ponury, okropny, posępny

pierce - przeszywać, przekłuć, przebić

narrowed - zwężony; zwężać się, zacieśniać się; nieznaczny, zawężony, wąski

She heard and saw nothing. Then she would return, chilled through, to issue out again after the lapse of a few moments, but always in vain.

chilled through - schłodzony na wskroś

Evening came, and the little band had not returned. Where could they be? Had they found the Indians, and were they having a conflict with them, or were they still wandering amid the mist? The commander of the fort was anxious, though he tried to conceal his apprehensions. As night approached, the snow fell less plentifully, but it became intensely cold. Absolute silence rested on the plains.

commander - dowódca

apprehensions - obawy; zatrzymanie

intensely - intensywnie

Neither flight of bird nor passing of beast troubled the perfect calm.

Throughout the night Aouda, full of sad forebodings, her heart stifled with anguish, wandered about on the verge of the plains. Her imagination carried her far off, and showed her innumerable dangers. What she suffered through the long hours it would be impossible to describe.

forebodings - złe przeczucie, złowieszczy

anguish - udręka; boleść

verge - krawędź; skraj

imagination - fantazja, imaginacja, wyobraźnia, urojenie, wyobrażenie

Fix remained stationary in the same place, but did not sleep. Once a man approached and spoke to him, and the detective merely replied by shaking his head.

stationary - nieruchomy

Thus the night passed. At dawn, the half-extinguished disc of the sun rose above a misty horizon; but it was now possible to recognize objects two miles off. Phileas Fogg and the squad had gone southward. In the south there was not a sign of them. It was then seven o'clock.

misty - mgła; mglisty

The captain, who was really alarmed, did not know what course to take.

Should he send another detachment to the rescue of the first? Should he sacrifice more men, with so few chances of saving those already sacrificed? His hesitation did not last long, however. Calling one of his lieutenants, he was on the point of ordering a reconnaissance, when gunshots were heard. Was it a signal?

detachment - oderwanie, oddział

saving - oszczędzanie; oszczędność; (save); ratować, uratować, zbawić

lieutenants - poruczników; porucznik

gunshots - wystrzał, zasięg strzału

The soldiers rushed out of the fort, and half a mile off they perceived a little band returning in good order.

in good order - w porządku

Mr. Fogg was marching at their head, and just behind him were

Passepartout and the other two travelers, rescued from the

rescued - uratowany; ratować, uratować, ocalić, ratunek


They had met and fought the Indians ten miles south of Fort Kearney. Shortly before the detachment arrived, Passepartout and his companions had begun to struggle with their captors, three of whom the Frenchman had felled with his fists, when his master and the soldiers hastened up to their relief.

captors - zdobywca, porywacz

felled - ścięty; (fall) spadać, opadać, upadać

All were welcomed with joyful cries. Phileas Fogg distributed the reward he had promised to the soldiers, while Passepartout, not without reason, muttered to himself, "It must certainly be confessed that I cost my master dear!"

distributed - rozdać, rozprowadzić, rozdzielić

Fix, without saying a word, looked at Mr. Fogg, and it would have been difficult to analyze the thoughts which struggled within him. As for Aouda, she took her protector's hand and pressed it in her own, too much moved to speak.

analyze - analizować

Meanwhile, Passepartout was looking about for the train. He thought he should find it there, ready to start for Omaha, and he hoped that the time lost might be regained.

"The train! The train!" cried he.

"Gone," replied Fix.

"And when does the next train pass here?" said Phileas Fogg.

"not till this evening."

not till - nie do czasu

"Ah!" returned the impassible gentleman quietly.

Chapter 31. Fix the Detective Considerably Furthers the Interests of Phileas Fogg

Furthers - rozwija; dalej, dalej, dalej

Phileas Fogg found himself twenty hours behind time.

Passepartout, the involuntary cause of this delay, was desperate.

He had ruined his master!

At this moment the detective approached Mr. Fogg, and, looking him intently in the face, said: "Seriously, sir, are you in great haste?"

haste - pośpiech

"Quite seriously."

"I have a purpose in asking," resumed Fix. "Is it absolutely necessary that you should be in New
