"No," cried Jukes, raising a weary, discouraged voice above the harsh buzz of the nan-shan's friction winches.
Something within him seemed to turn over, bringing uppermost the feeling that the nan-shan was lost.
The nan-shan, he affirmed, was second to none as a sea-boat.
Nephrite is said to have been discovered in 1891 in the nan-shan mountains in the Chinese province of Kan-suh, where it is worked.
The first morning the new flag floated over the stern of the nan-shan Jukes stood looking at it bitterly from the bridge.
In the central nan-shan it is only the north-eastern slopes that bear forests.
The whole province is traversed in a south-westerly and north-easterly direction by the nan-shan ranges.
This border-range, which continues on to the 97th meridian, separates the nan-shan range from the Pe-shan range.
