CHAPTER VI - A VISIT TO BOULOGNE

Without attempting to undo his heavy wraps the man followed the page and was slowly and solemnly raised to the first floor, where with a great flourish the lad indicated a door near by.
Ignoring his guide, as though he had completely forgotten his existence, the man walked to the door and knocked on it in such a curious way that it was evidently a prearranged signal. It was answered at once, though not completely opened till the occupant had peered through the crack in the doorway allowed by a protecting chain.
The stranger remained silent and waited patiently till the door was opened ; but the boy said afterwards that the look in his eyes frightened him.
" Come in, your Excellency, come in," said the inviting voice of a man within the room. " You are welcome."
The man who had been in such a hurry, now paused in the doorway. He was vis-d-vis with an indescribably old Chinaman, whose inscrutable face of ashen hue was wrinkled and puckered up, till he seemed as though he must have been born a thousand years ago. Still, though he was so very old, he wore a most elaborate robe over his Eastern clothes. The thought flashed through his visitor's mind that this shrivelledup being might almost be dressed for some great Sacrificial Ceremony such as are held in those weird temples of the mysterious land he came from. It was a disturbing thought in the circumstances ; for his visit was not an entirely honest one, and was not unconnected with death !
But the old, old man did not move a muscle of his face after he greeted his visitor, and his eyelids never even flickered as he waited for the other to speak. The pallid gleam from the charcoal stove caught his features and gave them a deathly look.
