The expanse, dun and common by day, had the appearance of an enormous silver lake under the rays of the waning moon.
    The buildings stood in a shadowy, self-effacing huddle, only one white line of
... light showing between the shutter bottom and a windowsill.
    A door opened and spilled an orange flood across the yard. It banged shut and hurried footsteps grew louder. The scarlet of the Rising Sun on the door was not bright in the hazy shimmer of moonbeams. But it was plain.
    Panting and frightened, a Chinese with furtive eyes and a thin, cunning face came to an abrupt stop beside the running board. He had come so swiftly from the lighted room and he was so sure of the Rising Sun on the door that he did not give the dark interior before him more than a glance.
    “Captain! He is coming here tonight—”
    The Chinese stopped his rush of words and took a swift backward step. He was paralyzed by what he had done.
