THE WALLET OF KAI LUNG

By Ernest Bramah

"Ho, illustrious passers-by!" says Kai Lung as he spreads out his

embroidered mat under the mulberry-tree. "It is indeed unlikely

that you could condescend to stop and listen to the foolish words

of such an insignificant and altogether deformed person as myself.

Nevertheless, if you will but retard your elegant footsteps for a

few moments, this exceedingly unprepossessing individual will

endeavour to entertain you." This is a collection of Kai Lung's

entertaining tales, told professionally in the market places as he

travelled about; told sometimes to occupy and divert the minds of

his enemies when they were intent on torturing him.

CHAPTER I. THE TRANSMUTATION OF LING

I: INTRODUCTION

The sun had dipped behind the western mountains before Kai Lung, with

twenty li or more still between him and the city of Knei Yang, entered

the camphor-laurel forest which stretched almost to his destination.

No person of consequence ever made the journey unattended; but Kai Lung

professed to have no fear, remarking with extempore wisdom, when warned

at the previous village, that a worthlessgarment covered one with

better protection than that afforded by an army of bowmen. Nevertheless,

when within the gloomy aisles, Kai Lung more than once wished himself

back at the village, or safely behind the mud walls of Knei Yang; and,

making many vows concerning the amount of prayer-paper which he would

assuredly burn when he was actually through the gates, he stepped

out more quickly, until suddenly, at a turn in the glade, he stopped

altogether, while the watchful expression into which he had unguardedly

dropped at once changed into a mask of impassiveness and extreme

unconcern. From behind the next tree projected a long straight rod, not

unlike a slenderbamboo at a distance, but, to Kai Lung's all-seeing

eye, in reality the barrel of a matchlock, which would come into line

with his breast if he took another step. Being a prudent man, more

accustomed to guile and subservience to destiny than to force, he

therefore waited, spreading out his hands in proof of his peaceful

acquiescence, and smiling cheerfully until it should please the owner

of the weapon to step forth. This the unseen did a moment later, still

keeping his gun in an easy and convenient attitude, revealing a stout

body and a scarred face, which in conjunction made it plain to Kai Lung

that he was in the power of Lin Yi, a noted brigand of whom he had heard

much in the villages.

"O illustrious person," said Kai Lung very earnestly, "this is evidently

an unfortunate mistake. Doubtless you were expecting some exalted

Mandarin to come and render you homage, and were preparing to overwhelm

him with gratified confusion by escorting him yourself to your

well-appointed abode. Indeed, I passed such a one on the road, very

richly apparelled, who inquired of me the way to the mansion of the

dignified and upright Lin Yi. By this time he is perhaps two or three li

towards the east."

"However distinguished a Mandarin may be, it is fitting that I should

first attend to one whose manners and accomplishments betray him to be

of the Royal House," replied Lin Yi, with extreme affability. "Precede

me, therefore, to my mean and uninviting hovel, while I gain more

honour than I can reasonably bear by following closely in your elegant

footsteps, and guarding your Imperial person with this inadequate but

heavily-loaded weapon."

Seeing no chance of immediate escape, Kai Lung led the way, instructed

by the brigand, along a very difficult and bewildering path, until they

reached a cave hidden among the crags. Here Lin Yi called out some words

in the Miaotze tongue, whereupon a follower appeared, and opened a gate

in the stockade of prickly mimosa which guarded the mouth of the den.

Within the enclosure a fire burned, and food was being prepared. At a

word from the chief, the unfortunate Kai Lung found his hands seized and

tied behind his back, while a second later a rough hemp rope was fixed

round his neck, and the other end tied to an overhanging tree.

Lin Yi smiled pleasantly and critically upon these preparations, and

when they were complete dismissed his follower.

"Now we can converse at our ease and without restraint," he remarked to

Kai Lung. "It will be a distinguishedprivilege for a person occupying

the important public position which you undoubtedly do; for myself,

my instincts are so degraded and low-minded that nothing gives me more

gratification than to dispense with ceremony."

To this Kai Lung made no reply, chiefly because at that moment the wind

swayed the tree, and compelled him to stand on his toes in order to

escape suffocation.

"It would be useless to try to conceal from a person of your inspired

intelligence that I am indeed Lin Yi," continued the robber. "It is a

dignified position to occupy, and one for which I am quite incompetent.

In the sixth month of the third year ago, it chanced that this unworthy

person, at that time engaged in commercial affairs at Knei Yang, became

inextricably immersed in the insidious delights of quail-fighting.

Having been entrusted with a large number of taels with which to

purchase elephants' teeth, it suddenly occurred to him that if he

doubled the number of taels by staking them upon an exceedingly powerful

and agile quail, he would be able to purchase twice the number of teeth,

and so benefit his patron to a large extent. This matter was clearly

forced upon his notice by a dream, in which he perceived one whom he

then understood to be the benevolent spirit of an ancestor in the act

of stroking a particular quail, upon whose chances he accordingly

placed all he possessed. Doubtless evil spirits had been employed in the

matter; for, to this person's great astonishment, the quail in question

failed in a very discreditable manner at the encounter. Unfortunately,

this person had risked not only the money which had been entrusted to

him, but all that he had himself become possessed of by some years of

honourable toil and assiduous courtesy as a professionalwitness in

law cases. Not doubting that his patron would see that he was himself

greatly to blame in confiding so large a sum of money to a comparatively

young man of whom he knew little, this person placed the matter before

him, at the same time showing him that he would suffer in the eyes of

the virtuous if he did not restore this person's savings, which but for

the presence of the larger sum, and a generous desire to benefit his

patron, he would never have risked in so uncertain a venture as that of

quail-fighting. Although the facts were laid in the form of a dignified

request instead of a demand by legal means, and the reasoning carefully

drawn up in columns of fine parchment by a very illustrious writer, the

reply which this person received showed him plainly that a wrong view

had been taken of the matter, and that the time had arrived when it

became necessary for him to make a suitable rejoinder by leaving the

city without delay."

"It was a high-minded and disinterested course to take," said Kai

Lung with great conviction, as Lin Yi paused. "Without doubt evil will

shortly overtake the avaricious-souled person at Knei Yang."

"It has already done so," replied Lin Yi. "While passing through this

forest in the season of Many White Vapours, the spirits of his bad deeds

appeared to him in misleading and symmetrical shapes, and drew him out

of the path and away from his bowmen. After suffering many torments, he

found his way here, where, in spite of our continual care, he perished

miserably and in great bodily pain.... But I cannot conceal from

myself, in spite of your distinguished politeness, that I am becoming

intolerably tiresome with my commonplace talk."

"On the contrary," replied Kai Lung, "while listening to your voice I

seemed to hear the beating of many gongs of the finest and most polished

brass. I floated in the Middle Air, and for the time I even became

unconscious of the fact that this honourable appendage, though

fashioned, as I perceive, out of the most delicate silk, makes it

exceedingly difficult for me to breathe."

"Such a thing cannot be permitted," exclaimed Lin Yi, with some

indignation, as with his own hands he slackened the rope and, taking it

from Kai Lung's neck, fastened it around his ankle. "Now, in return for

my uninviting confidences, shall not my senses be gladdened by a recital

of the titles and honours borne by your distinguished family? Doubtless,

at this moment many Mandarins of the highest degree are anxiously

awaiting your arrival at Knei Yang, perhaps passing the time by outdoing

one another in protesting the number of taels each would give rather

than permit you to be tormented by fire-brands, or even to lose a single

ear."

"Alas!" replied Kai Lung, "never was there a truer proverb than that

which says, 'It is a mark of insincerity of purpose to spend one's

time in looking for the sacred Emperor in the low-class tea-shops.'

Do Mandarins or the friends of Mandarins travel in mean garments and

unattended? Indeed, the person who is now before you is none other than

the outcast Kai Lung, the story-teller, one of degraded habits and no

very distinguished or reputable ancestors. His friends are few, and

mostly of the criminal class; his wealth is not more than some six or

eight cash, concealed in his left sandal; and his entire stock-in-trade

consists of a few unendurable and badly told stories, to which, however,

it is his presumptuous intentionshortly to add a dignified narrative

of the high-born Lin Yi, setting out his domestic virtues and the

honour which he has reflected upon his house, his valour in war, the

destruction of his enemies, and, above all, his great benevolence and

the protection which he extends to the poor and those engaged in the

distinguished arts."

"The absence of friends is unfortunate," said Lin Yi thoughtfully, after

he had possessed himself of the coins indicated by Kai Lung, and also

of a much larger amount concealed elsewhere among the story-teller's

clothing. "My followers are mostly outlawed Miaotze, who have been

driven from their own tribes in Yun Nan for man-eating and disregarding

the sacred laws of hospitality. They are somewhat rapacious, and in this

way it has become a custom that they should have as their own, for

the purpose of exchanging for money, persons such as yourself, whose

insatiable curiosity has led them to this place."

"The wise and all-knowing Emperor Fohy instituted three degrees of

attainment: Being poor, to obtain justice; being rich, to escape

flattery; and being human, to avoid the passions," replied Kai Lung.

"To these the practical and enlightened Kang added yet another, the

greatest: Being lean, to yield fatness."

"In such cases," observed the brigand, "the Miaotze keep an honoured and

very venerable rite, which chiefly consists in suspending the offender

by a pigtail from a low tree, and placing burning twigs of hemp-palm

between his toes. To this person it seems a foolish and meaningless

habit; but it would not be well to interfere with their religious

observances, however trivial they may appear."

"Such a course must inevitably end in great loss," suggested Kai Lung;

"for undoubtedly there are many poor yet honourable persons who would

leave with them a bond for a large number of taels and save the money

with which to redeem it, rather than take part in a ceremony which is

not according to one's own Book of Rites."

"They have already suffered in that way on one or two occasions,"

replied Lin Yi; "so that such a proposal, no matter how nobly intended,

would not gladden their faces. Yet they are simple and docile persons,

and would, without doubt, be moved to any feeling you should desire by

the recital of one of your illustrious stories."

"An intelligent and discriminating assemblage is more to a story-teller

than much reward of cash from hands that conceal open mouths," replied

Kai Lung with great feeling. "Nothing would confer more pleasurable

agitation upon this unworthy person than an opportunity of narrating

his entire stock to them. If also the accomplished Lin Yi would bestow

renown upon the occasion by his presence, no omen of good would be

wanting."

"The pleasures of the city lie far behind me," said Lin Yi, after

some thought, "and I would cheerfullysubmit myself to an intellectual

accomplishment such as you are undoubtedlycapable of. But as we have

necessity to leave this spot before the hour when the oak-leaves change

into night-moths, one of your amiable stories will be the utmost we can

strengthen our intellects with. Select which you will. In the meantime,

food will be brought to refresh you after your benevolent exertions

in conversing with a person of my vapid understanding. When you have

partaken, or thrown it away as utterly unendurable, the time will have

arrived, and this person, together with all his accomplices, will put

themselves in a position to be subjected to all the most dignified

emotions."

II

"The story which I have selected for this gratifying occasion," said Kai

Lung, when, an hour or so later, still pinioned, but released from the

halter, he sat surrounded by the brigands, "is entitled 'Good and

Evil,' and it is concerned with the adventures of one Ling, who bore the

honourable name of Ho. The first, and indeed the greater, part of

the narrative, as related by the venerable and accomplished writer

of history Chow-Tan, is taken up by showing how Ling was assuredly

descended from an enlightened Emperor of the race of Tsin; but as the

no less omniscient Ta-lin-hi proves beyond doubt that the person in

question was in no way connected with any but a line of hereditary

ape-worshippers, who entered China from an unknown country many

centuries ago, it would ill become this illiterate person to express

an opinion on either side, and he will in consequence omit the first

seventeen books of the story, and only deal with the three which refer

to the illustrious Ling himself."

THE STORY OF LING

Narrated by Kai Lung when a prisoner in the camp of Lin Yi.

Ling was the youngest of three sons, and from his youth upwards proved

to be of a mild and studious disposition. Most of his time was spent in

reading the sacred books, and at an early age he found the worship of

apes to be repulsive to his gentle nature, and resolved to break through

the venerable traditions of his family by devoting his time to literary

pursuits, and presenting himself for the public examinations at Canton.

In this his resolution was strengthened by a rumour that an army of

bowmen was shortly to be raised from the Province in which he lived,

so that if he remained he would inevitably be forced into an occupation

which was even more distasteful to him than the one he was leaving.

Having arrived at Canton, Ling's first care was to obtain particulars of

the examinations, which he clearly perceived, from the unusual

activity displayed on all sides, to be near at hand. On inquiring from

passers-by, he received very conflicting information; for the persons to

whom he spoke were themselves entered for the competition, and therefore

naturally misled him in order to increase their own chances of success.

Perceiving this, Ling determined to apply at once, although the light

was past, to a Mandarin who was concerned in the examinations, lest by

delay he should lose his chance for the year.

"It is an unfortunate event that so distinguished a person should have

selected this day and hour on which to overwhelm us with his affable

politeness!" exclaimed the porter at the gate of the Yamen, when Ling

had explained his reason for going. "On such a day, in the reign of the

virtuous Emperor Hoo Chow, a very benevolent and unassuming ancestor of

my good lord the Mandarin was destroyed by treachery, and ever since his

family has observed the occasion by fasting and no music. This person

would certainly be punished with death if he entered the inner room from

any cause."

At these words, Ling, who had been simply brought up, and chiefly in the

society of apes, was going away with many expressions of self-reproach

at selecting such a time, when the gate-keeper called him back.
