PART I - CHAPTER V

gossip of many things she told me that my father was thinking of taking a new concubine, a Peking girl who had been educated in Japan, and the Fourth Lady, when she heard of it, had swallowed her best jade ear-rings. She told no one for two days, though she suffered greatly, and then my mother discovered it.
The girl was at the point of death, and the old doctor who was called in could do nothing, although he pierced her wrists and ankles with needles. A neighbour suggested the foreign hospital, but my mother did not consider such a thing a possibility. We knew nothing of foreigners. Besides, how could a foreigner know what was wrong with a Chinese? Foreign doctors may understand the diseases of their own people, who are quite simple and barbarous in comparison with the highly complex and cultivated Chinese. My brother, however, happened to be at home just then for the Eighth Moon Festival, and he himself asked the foreign woman doctor to come.
She brought a very curious instrument with a long tube attached. This she thrust down the Fourth Lady's throat, and instantly the rings came up. Every one was much astonished except the foreigner, who packed her instrument and walked calmly away.
