“Frank Clune visits an opium den – nearly chokes himself when he becomes an addict for five minutes; he watches the peroration of the betel-nut for chewing – then tries a plug; he visits the famous aeroplane experiment station at Bandoeng, makes a trip to the stratosphere – and faints before he reaches thirty thousand feet; he attends a chief’s funeral in the wilds of Celebes – and makes a quite unintentional contribution to the ceremonial that upsets the gravity of all.  And so on.”
