Like guests at a party who are enjoying their dinner only to discover that all the food is gone, or are savouring a fine liquor only to discover that the bottle is empty, the theatre audience had no choice but to get up and walk out of the theatre. Cheif Liu and the county cadres sitting at the front of the theatre all stood and applauded. Each of them had an expression of excitement and amazement. Who would have expected that Chief Liu, after a single trip to the countryside, could manage to bring back this sort of performance troupe, whose every single act was completely unique and unbelievable? No one would believe all these performers were actually disabled peasants from the remote countryside. But most important, each of the county committee and the county government cadres glimpsed, in the Liven performances, the first hint of Lenin's glory—a money tree from which they would obtain the finds to purchase Lenin's corpse. With the help of this money tree, they would be able to install Lenin's corpse on Spirit Mountain, thereby transforming it into an inexhaustible bank.
