Opium is smoked everywhere, at all times, by men and women, in the Celestial Empire; and, once accustomed to it, the victims cannot dispense with it, except by suffering horrible bodily contortions and agonies.
A great smoker can smoke as many as eight pipes a day; but he dies in five years. It was in one of these dens that Fix and Passepartout, in search of a friendly glass, found themselves. Passepartout had no money, but willingly accepted Fix's invitation in the hope of returning the obligation at some future time. They ordered two bottles of port, to which the Frenchman did ample justice, whilst Fix observed him with Leaving The Club-Bah attention.
They chatted about the journey, and Passepartout was especially merry at the idea that Fix was going to continue it with them. When the bottles were empty, however, he rose to go and tell his master of the change in the time of the sailing of the Carnatic.
Passepartout, at this, looked attentively at his companion. Fix's face seemed to have a singular expression.
He resumed his seat. Fix Leaving The Club-Bah his hand upon Passepartout's arm, and, lowering his voice, said, "You have guessed who I am?

Those gentlemen are not satisfied with following my master and suspecting his honour, but they must try to put obstacles in his way! I blush for them! They might as well waylay Mr. Fogg and put his money in their pockets!
And gentlemen, too. An agent of the members of the Reform Club, sent out here to interrupt my master's journey. But, though I found you out some time ago, I've taken good care to say nothing about it to Mr. The detective passed his hand across his forehead, hesitating before he spoke again. What should he do? Passepartout's mistake Leaving The Club-Bah sincere, but it made his design more difficult.
It was evident that the servant was not the master's accomplice, as Fix had been inclined to suspect. He had no time to lose: Fogg must be detained at Hong Kong, so he resolved to make a clean breast of it.
Passepartout was speechless with astonishment when Fix displayed this document, the genuineness of which could not be doubted. Fogg's wager," resumed Fix, "is only a pretext, of which you and the gentlemen of the Reform are dupes. He had a motive for securing your innocent complicity.
