1.【址:a g 9 559⒐ v i p】1  "That seals your fate," he said coldly. "You are very prompt in youractions, madame, but you have overdone it on this occasion."She threw the poker down with a clatter.
2.  "I only heard of it this morning," the lawyer explained."Mr. Holmes advised me to have some friend in the house. I neglectedhis advice, and I have paid for it."
3.  "Terrible! She is even more affected than I."
4.  "'Ah!' cried Mr. Trevor. 'You know where Mr. Beddoes is?'"Bless you, sir, I know where all my old friends are,' said thefellow with a sinister smile, and he slouched off after the maid tothe kitchen. Mr. Trevor mumbled something to us about having beenshipmate with the man when he was going back to the diggings, andthen, leaving us on the lawn, he went indoors. An hour later, whenwe entered the house, we found him stretched dead drunk upon thedining-room sofa. The whole incident left a most ugly impressionupon my mind, and I was not sorry next day to leave Donnithorpe behindme, for I felt that my presence must be a source of embarrassment tomy friend.
5.  "The man's name was Arthur Cadogan West. He was twenty-seven yearsof age, unmarried, and a clerk at Woolwich Arsenal."
6.  Sherlock Holmes rubbed his hands with delight, and I stared withastonishment at our client.


1.  "There are the Shoscombe spaniels," said I. "You hear of them atevery dog show. The most exclusive breed in England. They are thespecial pride of the lady of Shoscombe Old Place."
2.  "I have trusted you too long, Effie," he cried sternly. "Leave go ofme! I must pass you. My friends and I are going to settle thismatter once and forever!" He pushed her to one side, and we followedclosely after him. As he threw the door open an old woman ran out infront of him and tried to bar his passage, but he thrust her back, andan instant afterwards we were all upon the stairs. Grant Munrorushed into the lighted room at the top, and we entered at his heels.It was a cosy, well-furnished apartment, with two candles burningupon the table and two upon the mantelpiece. In the corner, stoopingover a desk, there sat what appeared to be a little girl. Her face wasturned away as we entered, but we could see that she was dressed ina red frock, and that she had long white gloves on. As she whiskedround to us, I gave a cry of surprise and horror. The face which sheturned towards us was of the strangest livid tint, and the featureswere absolutely devoid of any expression. An instant later the mysterywas explained. Holmes, with a laugh, passed his hand behind thechild's ear, a mask peeled off from her countenance, and there was alittle coal-black negress, with all her white teeth flashing inamusement at our amazed faces. I burst out laughing, out of sympathywith her merriment; but Grant Munro stood staring, with his handclutching his throat.
3.  The Duke's beard had turned more aggressively red than everagainst his ghastly white face.
4.  "Ah! then you must have overlooked it. Just toss it over to me. Hereit is, under the financial column. Perhaps you would be good enough toread it aloud."
5.  My friend was an enthusiastic musician, being himself not onlya very capable performer but a composer of no ordinary merit. Allthe afternoon he sat in the stalls wrapped in the most perfecthappiness, gently waving his long, thin fingers in time to themusic, while his gently smiling face and his languid, dreamy eyeswere as unlike those of Holmes, the sleuth-hound, Holmes therelentless, keen-witted, ready-handed criminal agent, as it waspossible to conceive. In his singular character the dual naturealternately asserted itself, and his extreme exactness andastuteness represented, as I have often thought, the reactionagainst the poetic and contemplative mood which occasionallypredominated in him. The swing of his nature took him fromextreme languor to devouring energy; and, as I knew well, he wasnever so truly formidable as when, for days on end, he had beenlounging in his armchair amid his improvisations and hisblack-letter editions. Then it was that the lust of the chasewould suddenly come upon him, and that his brilliant reasoningpower would rise to the level of intuition, until those who wereunacquainted with his methods would look askance at him as on aman whose knowledge was not that of other mortals. When I saw himthat afternoon so enwrapped in the music at St. James's Hall Ifelt that an evil time might be coming upon those whom he had sethimself to hunt down.
6.  "I fancy that he had taken steps to make that draught efficacious,and that he quite relied upon your being unconscious. Of course, Iunderstood that he would repeat the attempt whenever it could bedone with safety. Your leaving the room gave him the chance he wanted.I kept Miss Harrison in it all day so that he might not anticipate us.Then, having given him the idea that the coast was clear, I kept guardas I have described. I already knew that the papers were probably inthe room, but I had no desire to rip up all the planking andskirting in search of them. I let him take them, therefore, from thehiding-place, and so saved myself an infinity of trouble. Is there anyother point which I can make clear?"


1.  "May I see it?"
2.  "Nothing at all, sir."
3.  We were fortunate in finding that Lord Holdhurst was still in hischambers in Downing Street, and on Holmes sending in his card wewere instantly shown up. The statesman received us with thatold-fashioned courtesy for which he is remarkable and seated us on thetwo luxuriant lounges on either side of the fireplace. Standing on therug between us, with his slight, tall figure, his sharp features,thoughtful face, and curling hair prematurely tinged with gray, heseemed to represent that not too common type, a nobleman who is intruth noble.
4.  "Oh, indeed!" said my friend, blowing blue rings into the air."You dragged them from the Serpentine?"
5.   "It is what I hoped, Mr. Holmes. There is an excellent train attwo from Victoria if you could come."
6.  "A setback?"


1.  It was twilight of a lovely spring evening, and even Little RyderStreet, one of the smaller offshoots from the Edgware Road, within astone-cast of old Tyburn Tree of evil memory, looked golden andwonderful in the slanting rays of the setting sun. The particularhouse to which we were directed was a large, old-fashioned, EarlyGeorgian edifice, with a flat brick face broken only by two deep baywindows on the ground floor. It was on this ground floor that ourclient lived, and, indeed, the low windows proved to be the front ofthe huge room in which he spent his waking hours. Holmes pointed as wepassed to the small brass plate which bore the curious name."Up some years, Watson," he remarked, indicating its discolouredsurface. "It's his real name, anyhow, and that is something to note."The house had a common stair, and there were a number of namespainted in the hall, some indicating offices and some privatechambers. It was not a collection of residential flats, but rather theabode of Bohemian bachelors. Our client opened the door for us himselfand apologized by saying that the woman in charge left at fouro'clock. Mr. Nathan Garrideb proved to be a very tall,
2.  "Good Lord! Good Lord! What shall I do?" cried the stranger, in anecstasy of despair. "They've got her, that hell-hound Woodley andthe blackguard parson. Come, man, come, if you really are herfriend. Stand by me and we'll save her, if I have to leave mycarcass in Charlington Wood."
3.  "That won't do, my dear Watson," said Holmes, shaking his head, "forno amount of idee fixe would enable your interesting monomaniac tofind out where these busts were situated."
4、  Mr. Garrideb surveyed me with not too friendly a gaze.
5、  "He had his suspicions before, and he followed me as you describe. Inever knew it until I was at the very door. It was thick fog, andone could not see three yards. I had given two taps and Obersteinhad come to the door. The young man rushed up and demanded to knowwhat we were about to do with the papers. Oberstein had a shortlife-preserver. He always carried it with him. As West forced hisway after us into the house Oberstein struck him on the head. The blowwas a fatal one. He was dead within five minutes. There he lay inthe hall, and we were at our wit's end what to do. Then Obersteinhad this idea about the trains which halted under his back window. Butfirst he examined the papers which I had brought. He said that threeof them were essential, and that he must keep them. 'You cannot keepthem,' said I. 'There will be a dreadful row at Woolwich if they arenot returned.' 'I must keep them,' said he, 'for they are so technicalthat it is impossible in the time to make copies.' 'Then they must allgo back together tonight,' said I. He thought for a little, and thenhe cried out that he had it. 'Three I will keep,' said he. 'The otherswe will stuff into the pocket of this young man. When he is foundthe whole business will assuredly be put to his account. I could seeno other way out of it, so we did as he suggested. We waited half anhour at the window before a train stopped. It was so thick thatnothing could be seen, and we had no difficulty in lowering West'sbody on to the train. That was the end of the matter so far as I wasconcerned."

      I shall be brief, and yet exact, in the little which remains forme to tell. It is not a subject on which I would willingly dwell,and yet I am conscious that a duty devolves upon me to omit no detail.It was on the third of May that we reached the little village ofMeiringen, where we put up at the Englischer Hof, then kept by PeterSteiler the elder. Our landlord was an intelligent man and spokeexcellent English, having served for three years as waiter at theGrosvenor Hotel in London. At his advice, on the afternoon of thefourth we set off together, with the intention of crossing the hillsand spending the night at the hamlet of Rosenlaui. We had strictinjunctions, however, on no account to pass the falls ofReichenbach, which are about halfway up the hills, without making asmall detour to see them.

      "There will soon be a call for protection in the marriage market,for the present free-trade principle appears to tell heavily againstour home product. One by one the management of the noble houses ofGreat Britain is passing into the hands of our fair cousins fromacross the Atlantic. An important addition has been made during thelast week to the list of the prizes which have been home away by thesecharming invaders. Lord St. Simon, who has shown himself for overtwenty years proof against the little god's arrows, has now definitelyannounced his approaching marriage with Miss Hatty Doran, thefascinating daughter of a California millionaire. Miss Doran, whosegraceful figure and striking face attracted much attention at theWestbury House festivities, is an only child, and it is currentlyreported that her dowry will run to considerably over the six figures,with expectancies for the future. As it is an open secret that theDuke of Balmoral has been compelled to sell his pictures within thelast few years, and as Lord St. Simon has no property of his ownsave the small estate of Birchmoor, it is obvious that the Californianheiress is not the only gainer by an alliance which will enable her tomake the easy and common transition from a Republican lady to aBritish peeress."

      I may have commented upon my friend's power of mental detachment,but never have I wondered at it more than upon that spring morningin Cornwall when for two hours he discoursed upon celts, arrowheads,and shards, as lightly as if no sinister mystery were waiting forhis solution. It was not until we had returned in the afternoon to ourcottage that we found a visitor awaiting us, who soon brought ourminds back to the matter in hand. Neither of us needed to be toldwho that visitor was. The huge body, the craggy and deeply seamed facewith the fierce eyes and hawk-like nose, the grizzled hair whichnearly brushed our cottage ceiling, the beard- golden at the fringesand white near the lips, save for the nicotine stain from hisperpetual cigar- all these were as well known in London as inAfrica, and could only be associated with the tremendous personalityof Dr. Leon Sterndale, the great lion-hunter and explorer.We had heard of his presence in the district and had once or twicecaught sight of his tall figure upon the moorland paths. He made noadvances to us, however, nor would we have dreamed of doing so to him,as it was well known that it was his love of seclusion which causedhim to spend the greater part of the intervals between his journeys ina small bungalow buried in the lonely wood of Beauchamp Arriance.Here, amid his books and his maps, he lived an absolutely lonely life,attending to his own simple wants and paying little apparent heed tothe affairs of his neighbours. It was a surprise to me, therefore,to hear him asking Holmes in an eager voice whether he had made anyadvance in his reconstruction of this mysterious episode. "Thecounty police are utterly at fault," said he, "but perhaps yourwider experience has suggested some conceivable explanation. My onlyclaim to being taken into your confidence is that during my manyresidences here I have come to know this family of Tregennis verywell- indeed, upon my Cornish mother's side I could call them cousins-and their strange fate has naturally been a great shock to me. I maytell you that I had got as far as Plymouth upon my way to Africa,but the news reached me this morning, and I came straight back againto help in the inquiry."

Far from hushing the thing up, I have brought a gentleman downfrom London to inquire more deeply into it."

       I carefully unpacked it and handed it to him. He seated himself athis desk, pulled over the lamp, for it was growing dark, and sethimself to examine it. As he did so the yellow light beat upon his ownfeatures, and I was able to study them at my ease.
