There is nothing that the Chinese officials fear so much as mobs in large cities. These disturbances give full play to lawless characters, while the force of the police bears no proportion whatever to the necessities of such cases. Seeking the island which had once before given us a shelter, we waited till the return of the skipper. For some distance above the mouth of the Siang the west bank is bordered by a lowland, which forms the southern border of the lake, and is apparently a delta-plain, produced by the Siang, the Tsz', and Yuen rivers.
This lowland is traversed by many channels, into one of which the Lung-tan Ho we entered, in order to reach the west end of the lake without being exposed to the full force of the wind sweeping across a broad sheet of water. The greater part of the lowland was already inundated, and many farm-houses and even villages were partially under water. The inhabitants were fearing serious injury to the crops, and it Tiffany and co outlet was with great difficulty that we could purchase from place to place a scanty supply of rice. In anticipation of a famine the authorities had forbidden the sale of provisions to non-residents in larger Marc Jacobs amounts than was absolutely necessary to keep them Tiffany outlet from starving.
Two days' journey westward brought us again to the lake, and after waiting forty-eight hours for a fair wind, we crossed over to the mouth of a river which communicates through the Tai-ping canal with the Yangtz' Kiang. The river-course was not distinguishable, owing to the wide-spread inundation but when tiffany and co we reached the canal we found the country on either side of this ten or fifteen feet above the water. In this, as in most Chinese canals, it is hard to distinguish between the work of nature and the work of man. We were two days and a half with a fair wind in going from the lake to the Yangtz'.
