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

"The Carnatic."

The fourth excerpt represents the element of Earth. It speaks of physical influences and the impact of the unseen on the visible world, and is drawn from The Pool in the Desert by Sara Jeanette Duncan:

'It's a vile climate.'

'I know. Is it too vile, do you think,' he said anxiously, 'to ask a lady to share?'

'Lots of ladies do share it,' I replied, with amazing calmness; 'but I must decline absolutely to enter into that.'

My frown was so forbidding that he couldn't and didn't dare to go on. He looked dashed and disappointed; he was really a fool of an applicant, quite ready to retire from the siege on the first intimation that the gates were not to be thrown open at his approach.
