The boy called the drug store first. They .said the prlc was 300,000 "goln* yuan." I gave him a bale of notes. Ten minutes later the boy was back—empty-handed. Before he got to the store the price had gone up to 500,000 "gold yuan," which IB about 70 cents. I didn't have that much paper money handy. I linally got three tins of aspirin by parting with my last Chinese silver dollar.
