Synopsis:
Bart Harley, a hermit who lives near Marie Thirteen's aunt and Uncle Carl, is blind, but seems to be guided by the ghost of his seeing eye dog, Dirk. The sheriff explains that three hunters, Carter Blane, Harry Acker, and Marlowe, killed Dirk accidentally. After Blane is apparently killed by the ghost dog, Thirteen meets the remaining hunters at their lodge, which has a "vermilion hand" painted to it to ward off ghosts. In spite of tests, Harley seems to be completely blind, yet is able to avoid a bear trap from which Thirteen has removed the spring as his own test. Thirteen races back to the lodge to find Marlowe killed by the ghost dog. Convinced of a rational explanation as always, Thirteen waits for the dog in Acker's clothes. He notices a phosphorescent glow in the fish in the river through a trapdoor in the floor. He is attacked by the ghost dog, but manages to escape. Thirteen confronts Acker, says he has found a fortune in radioactive material and put it on a coat over his own dog in order to kill the others and reap the profits. Harley is able to see at night through hemeralopia, but in his mental state believes that his dog's ghost is still guiding him.

Synopsis:
Terrence and Marie Thirteen go to visit their Chinese-American friends Harry, Rosemary, and their son, Larry, who live in San Francisco's Chinatown. The image of a dragon appears during an explosion that guts the apartment and kills Harry and Rosemary. The Phantom Stranger appears and recognizes the sign of Ching Hi Fu, the dragon curse. Dr. Thirteen blames the explosion on him, but Marie is more concerned about Larry and wants to take temporary custody. A photographer takes a picture and the Phantom Stranger is not in it. A Chinese man prays to Ching Hi Fu, and there is an explosion at the opening of a new bank. Dr. Thirteen contacts his friend, Herb, who hosts a popular radio show, who announces the opening of a new restaurant in Chinatown. At the reported address, the Phantom Stranger tackles the Chinese man, who confesses that he bombed the buildings. He was an architect who designed many of the buildings in Chinatown and was outraged by their destruction. As the architect is taken into custody, Dr. Thirteen vows to expose the vanishing Phantom Stranger as a fraud.

Notes:
Other characters mentioned in the story: Mildred, Mr. Fong, Frank (a banker). The architect, in spite of being the principal villain, is never named.
