Abstract:

Mr. Foo, a mandarin of the lost Chinese Empire, gives an old necklace bearing a Chinese inscription to Florence, who does mission work in the Chinese quarter of Washington, D.C., and is the daughter of a high Government official. Florence's parents have the Chinese ambassador translate the inscription which identifies Mr. Foo as a traitor to the new Chinese Republic. The ambassador's secretary spies on Foo and locates his secret apartment where plans are being made for a rebellion in China. The next day the ambassador visits Foo and reveals his knowledge of the traitor's plans; the ambassador persuades Foo to drink the deadly poison that he has brought rather than be tortured by the Chinese Government.
