A by Clarissa Mackie copyright by american press Asso elation 1911. Gailand and Harp eth met on the Pacific liner Tropio and from the first attraction of congenial natures there developed a warm Persona liking. Garland was from the state of Maine and a Larweth was a son of California. Out. Of .70,000,000 human souls Fate had draw these two one from the East and the other from the West to play the principal parts in a strange incident. They had left the fairy islands of Japan far behind and were drawing near to the Flat outline of the chins const a Are you going to Stop Over in Shanghai Quot asked Garland with a touch of Yankee inquisitiveness a a Haven to heard you there was a Little pause while har pm Ali s a yes sought the rising coast line. he clipped the word rather sharply. Garland glanced at him curiously. A you know i really did no to mean to pry into your affairs Quot he said apologetically. A a it a rather a natural question for one tourist to ask no harm done a returned Harp eth quickly. A How about yourself you going to Stop Over a it was garlands turn to show embarrassment. The Quick look of interrogation he flashed at his companion was met by Harp eth a expression of languid indifference. It was quite Plain that Harp eth had asked the question merely to make conversation not that he cared a rap about the matter. A maybe ill Stop Over to see the City a said Garland. Clumsy Junks came teetering Over the sea toward the Mouth of the Yang Ste but the trop co left them far behind As she steamed up to her Anchorage off Yusung and landed her eager passengers on to the Little Transfer tugs that would convey them up the tributary tidal River the Huangtu to hospitable Shanghai. In the crowd Garland and Harp eth missed each other accidentally or by design. Garland could scarcely wait for the tug to make her Landing at the j. Try before he was off and swinging i Law in up the bund toward the hotel of his Cholee. The electric lighted hotel with its air of Western luxury mingled with its quiet Eastern service impressed the Yankee wanderer most favourably and he retired to his room and Bath whistling cheerfully at the Prospect of the excellent dinner that he was sure awaited him below. But when the meal was concluded and he had enjoyed the gastronomic delights which h is fancy had conjured up lie retired to the smoking room to pore Over a queer Little map drawn with Brush strokes of India Ink on mottled tissue paper. It was an hour after Midnight when he left the hotel and made his Way along the bund to where a flight of Stone Steps led Down to the River Here were several samoans moored to the Landing and the coolies immediately fell to fighting for his patronage. settled the matter by stepping into one of the Little boats and. Being pounced upon by its delighted owner he was soon paddled out into the Stream which glistened in the Moonlight like molten Silver. A Kaoyang Sabe a he cried sharply. The coolie nodded his head and whirled the Sampan about until it headed up Stream. For a mile he pad died steadily with his Long sweep like oar and then suddenly ran the boat in Between High Banks on the North Shore and grounded in the mud. As if guided by some invisible hand he who could not recollect Ever having touched foot on this soil before sought for and found a narrow path winding upward to where a ruined Temple crouched among a group of distorted wind blown Cedars. The Moon sent Long rays Down and Here and there pierced the secret places with an illuminating touch. It showed Garland the outline of a dark arched opening and he made for it fearlessly. Just before he reached it he Drew from his pocket the Little map he had studied earlier in the evening and turned the Flash from his pocket Light upon110 plume st the South Bend watch.
