FLOTSAM AND JETSAM

was hard, but to lie on it was a relief after the discomfort of the prahu. He could see nothing of the room but a chest of drawers, roughly made by a native carpenter, and a wooden chair. Opposite was a doorway, with a blind down, and this he guessed led on to a veranda.
" Kong," he called.
The blind was drawn aside and his boy came in. The Chinaman's face broke into a grin when he saw that his master was free from fever.
" You more better, Tuan. Velly glad." "Where the devil am I?"
Kong explained.
" Luggage all right?" asked Skelton. "Yes, him all right."
" What's the name of this fellow-the tuan whose house this is?"
" Mr. Norman Glange."
To confirm what he said he showed Skelton a little book in which the owner's name was written. It was Grange. Skelton noticed that the book was Bacon's Essays. It was curious to find it in a planter's house away up a river in Borneo.
" Tell him I'd be glad to see him."
" Tuan out. Him come presently."
" What about my having a wash? And by God, I want a shave."
He tried to get out of bed, but his head swam and with a bewildered cry he sank back. But Kong shaved and washed him, and changed the shorts and singlet in which he had been lying ever since he fell ill for a sarong and a baju. After that he was glad to lie still. But presently Kong came in and said that the tuan of the house was back. There was a knock on the door and a large stoutish man stepped in.
" I hear you're better," he said.
" Oh, much. It's terribly kind of you to have taken me in like this. It seems awful, planting myself on you."
