Chapter 3 


第三章

 

Fogg to the Rescue

 

The train puffed its way through India

passing magnificent temples and fields of coffee and cotton. 

Passepartout saw it all, amazed.


火车在贯穿印度地行走,

经过壮丽的庙宇和咖啡豆、棉花田。

路路通看见了这些美丽的景色,惊呆了。 


Fogg found a man to play cards. 

But halfway through the third days, the train came to a stop. 

“The track ends here,” a guard announced. 

“It starts again in fifty miles at Allahabad.”


福克找到了一个打牌的伙伴。

但是在第三天里,火车在一个站停下了。

“火车轨道到这就没有了,” 一个工作人员说。

“在50英里外的阿拉哈巴德恢复正常。”

 

Passepartout was furious. 

“How will we reach Calcutta in time?” he demanded.


路路通非常愤怒。

“那我们怎可能准时到达加尔各答?” 他抱怨道。

 

Fogg didn't seem worried. 

“I’ve allowed time for delays,” he said quietly. 

“We simply need to find another way to travel.”


福克好像不在意。

“我已经把推迟的时间算在行程里,” 他静静地说。

“我们只要找其它路走就行。”

 

Passepartout rushed off. Soon, 

he was back with the answer.


路路通出去了一阵。不久他就

带着答案回来了。

 

“Look! An elephant!”


“看!一头大象!”



 

The elephant was expensive 

but Fogg didn't mind. 

He invited his card-playing friend to join them.


大象非常昂贵

但是福克不介意。

他甚至邀请打牌的伙伴一起坐大象。

 

Then he hired a guide and, half an hour later, 

there were lurching through the jungle. 

Passepartout bounced up and down with glee. 

Every now and then, he tossed the elephant a sugar lump.


然后他们还聘请了一个向导,在半小时后

他们就向森林出发了。

路路通快乐地坐在大象上。

每隔一阵子,就给大象吃糖。

 

They journeyed for hours, 

crossing forests of dates trees and sandy plains. 

That night, they camped in a ruined bungalow.

 

他们走了好几个小时,

穿过了枣树林和沙的平原。

在那晚上,他们在一个荒废的小屋里扎营。


They were off again at six the next morning, 

breakfasting on bananas picked from a tree.


在第二天早上6点就开始出发,

吃从树上摘的香蕉做早餐。

 

They had almost crossed a thick forest, 

when they heard music and voices. 

A large procession was snaking its way through the trees.


当他们准备穿过一个树林是,他们

听到了音乐和人声。

一个长长的队伍正穿越着森林。

 

In the middle of the procession, 

a group of warriors carried the body of a dead prince. 

Behind them, two priests were pulling a beautiful girl.


在队伍的正中间,

有一群武术抬着一个去世王子的尸体。

在他们后面,两个祭司拉着一个漂亮的女孩。



 

Passepartout was shocked. 

“What are they doing?” he cried.


路路通非常惊讶。

“他们要干嘛?”他大声说。

 

“It’s the custom,” their guide explained. 

“When a prince dies, his wife must die too,

 so they can go to heaven together.”


“这是当地的习俗,” 他们的向导解释道。

“当一个王子去世,他的妻子也必须要死,

那他们可以一起上天堂。”

 

“Tomorrow, Princess Aouda will be 

burned to death beside her husband.”


“明天,奥达公主会和她死去的

丈夫一起烧死。

 

Passepartout was horrified. 

Even Phileas Fogg, who let nothing disturb him, 

seemed upset.


路路通是惊呆了。

甚至连福克,平时非常冷静,

都感到愤怒。

 

“I have twelve hours to spare,” 

he observed. “Let's save her.”


“我们有12个小时去想办法,

他观察着说。“我们要拯救她。”

 

By nightfall, the procession had reached a small temple. 

The princess was locked firmly inside. 

Everything seemed hopeless, 

until Passepartout had an idea…


到晚上,那队伍已经来到了一个小庙宇。

公主给牢牢地关在里面。

所有的希望都没有了,

突然路路通想到了一个办法。

 

“I think I can see how to rescue her.”

 

“我想我知道怎样去救她了。”


Next morning, Princess Aouda was 

laid beside her husband. 

Then the priests lit a huge fire, 

watched by a silent crowd. Suddenly, 

the air filled with screams. Some people even 

flung themselves to the ground. The dead prince was sitting up.


第二天早上,奥达公主早已睡在王子尸体的

旁边。然后祭司点燃了火堆,

围观的人在看热闹。突然

听到人群中的尖叫声。 有些人甚至摔倒

在地上。死去的王子坐起来了。


His ghostly figure rose through the smoke

 and grasped Princess Aouda in his arms. 

Then he strode off into the jungle.


王子的影子在浓雾中升起

接着把公主抱在怀里。

然后他跑进了森林里。


“Let’s go!” the ghost called to Fogg. 

It was Passepartout, who had disguised 

himself as the prince. Fogg and his friend chased after them, 

dodging bullets and arrows as they ran to safety.


“走吧!”那鬼魂叫着福克。

原来是路路通,扮成王子的模样。福克和伙伴们跟在

后面,从枪林弹雨中逃到安全的地方。
