Outstanding representative
of kiri-kiri tribe, an enlightener of Dayaks

In 1910 the missionary of reformatory church venerable Stokes was perfidiously killed by the tribe and took involuntarily passive part, so to speak, in a cannibalistic orgy. <...> So, for example, Quak-Ma-Lung, one of the cleverest representative of the fine sex on the island of Kiri-kiri, didn’t day and night leave celluloid collar of the decedent, though this relic almost confined her modest toilet.

Isn’t subject to doubt that neither mildness, nor infinite patience and mental fortitude wouldn’t rescue venerable Browning from his predecessor’s fate if, contrary to decedent Stokes, he didn’t possess youth and extremely attractive appearance.


Having mixed with food of venerable Browning small slices of Cecilia arbonica’s root which is widely used by Dayaks as somnifacient, the courageous girl, without waiting for morning, transferred on her shoulders the insensible missionary to the sea coast, having done herewith over 5 kilometers on the impassable jungle. Certainly, anywhere on all island of Kiri-kiri the fugitives couldn’t be out of danger. Therefore Q. built, without procrastinating for a minute, the primitive raft; when Cecilia arbonica’s effect ceased and venerable Browning raised his become heavy eyelids, he, to his considerable surprise, saw round himself the water surface absorbed by the rising sun, and the coast of Borneo island in any one hundred yards ahead.

After all event the question of return to educational activity on the island of Kiri-kiri for venerable Browning disappeared by itself. <...> The neophyte decided to leave on herself only the collar of decedent Stokes as a constant reminder on her last delusions.

However the circumstances under which Browning was forced to leave his post on the island of Kiri-kiri, excited some bewilderment in the missionary brotherhood,

The gloomy memoirs connected with the island of Kiri-kiri, didn’t favor to her destination to this island;
v. N.’s masterpieces are considered, on justice, absolutely other works: book of stories “Cheerful croquetists” and family novels-idylls “House of the Registrar van Fleet” and “Cousin Gretel”.
in four days the family of the writer received the telegram: “Hurry to arrive hotel Berengaria Leiden hasten Noorden.”
I am indignant at such moral absenteeism which conducts to that a party of croquet is more preferable than the cause of fellowman rescue!
the building of Jurakudai palace was only the beginning; it followed: construction of the enormous Osaka Castle in which all princes took part, and huge stones of familiar walls are monuments of their competition hitherto; constructions of the big canal OsakaTsuruga through the Central Japan;
from 1840 to 1880 F. not less than 52 novels were finished. We call some of them to be convinced, how vividly, quickly and hotly F. responded on all a little considerable phenomena modern to him domestic literature: <...> “Clever man”,
