1.【址:a g 9 559⒐ v i p】1  "'Are you Mr. Hall Pycroft?' he asked.
2.  "That only two glasses were used, and that the dregs of both werepoured into a third glass, so as to give the false impression thatthree people had been here. In that way all the beeswing would be inthe last glass, would it not? Yes, I am convinced that this is so. Butif I have hit upon the true explanation of this one smallphenomenon, then in an instant the case rises from the commonplaceto the exceedingly remarkable, for it can only mean that LadyBrackenstall and her maid have deliberately lied to us, that not oneword of their story is to be believed, that they have some very strongreason for covering the real criminal, and that we must constructour case for ourselves without any help from them. That is the missionwhich now lies before us, and here, Watson, is the Sydenham train."The household at the Abbey Grange were much surprised at our return,but Sherlock Holmes, finding that Stanley Hopkins had gone off toreport to headquarters, took possession of the dining-room, locked thedoor upon the inside, and devoted himself for two hours to one ofthose minute and laborious investigations which form the solid basison which his brilliant edifices of deduction were reared. Seated ina corner like an interested student who observes the demonstrationof his professor, I followed every step of that remarkable research.The window, the curtains, the carpet, the chair, the rope- each inturn was minutely examined and duly pondered. The body of theunfortunate baronet had been removed, and all else remained as wehad seen it in the morning. Finally, to my astonishment, Holmesclimbed up on to the massive mantelpiece. Far above his head hungthe few inches of red cord which were still attached to the wire.For a long time he gazed upward at it, and then in an attempt to getnearer to it he rested his knee upon a wooden bracket on the wall.This brought his hand within a few inches of the broken end of therope, but it was not this so much as the bracket itself which seemedto engage his attention. Finally, he sprang down with an ejaculationof satisfaction.
3.  Holmes had read carefully a note which the last post had broughthim. Then, with the dry chuckle which was his nearest approach to alaugh, he tossed it over to me.
4.  "No, I cannot say that. But I have heard words which were nearlyas bad- words of cold, cutting contempt, even before the servants.""Our millionaire does not seem to shine in private life," remarkedHolmes as we made our way to the station. "Well, Watson, we havecome on a good many facts, some of them new ones, and yet I seemsome way from my conclusion. In spite of the evident dislike which Mr.Bates has to his employer, I gather from him that when the alarmcame he was undoubtedly in his library. Dinner was over at 8:30 andall was normal up to then. It is true that the alarm was somewhat latein the evening, but the tragedy certainly occurred about the hournamed in the note. There is no evidence at all that Mr. Gibson hadbeen out of doors since his return from town at five o'clock. On theother hand, Miss Dunbar, as I understand it, admits that she hadmade an appointment to meet Mrs. Gibson at the bridge. Beyond this shewould say nothing, as her lawyer, had advised her to reserve herdefence. We have several very vital questions to ask that younglady, and my mind will not be easy until we have seen her. I mustconfess that the case would seem to me to be very black against her ifit were not for one thing."
5.  "If the treaty had reached, let us say, the French or RussianForeign Office, you would expect to hear of it?"
6.  "In your heart of hearts, do you think that Neville is alive?"Sherlock Holmes seemed to be embarrassed by the question."Frankly, now!" she repeated, standing upon the rug and looking keenlydown at him as he leaned back in a basket-chair.


1.  "I simply wrote: 'Shall it be the police, then?' I think that shouldpass us in."
2.  At last there came one dreadful day when the facts could no longerbe concealed from the husband. The nurse's nerve had given way; shecould stand the strain no longer, and she made a clean breast of itall to the man. To him it seemed as wild a tale as it may now seemto you. He knew his wife to be a loving wife, and, save for theassaults upon her stepson, a loving mother. Why, then, should shewound her own dear little baby? He told the nurse that she wasdreaming, that her suspicions were those of a lunatic, and that suchlibels upon her mistress were not to be tolerated. While they weretalking a sudden cry of pain was heard. Nurse and master rushedtogether to the nursery. Imagine his feelings, Mr. Holmes, as he sawhis wife rise from a kneeling position beside the cot and saw bloodupon the child's exposed neck and upon the sheet. With a cry ofhorror, he turned his wife's face to the light and saw blood all roundher lips. It was she- she beyond all question- who had drunk thepoor baby's blood.
3.  "`And he is admirably suited for it,' the other answered. `Hehas every requirement. I cannot recall when I have seen anythingso fine.' He took a step backward, cocked his head on one side,and gazed at my hair until I felt quite bashful. Then suddenly heplunged forward, wrung my hand, and congratulated me warmly on mysuccess.
4.  "There is that creature!" cried Grant Munro. "You can see foryourselves that someone is there. Now follow me, and we shall soonknow all."
5.  "What! You were after Henderson?"
6.  "You will excuse a certain abstraction of mind, my dear Watson,"said he. "Some curious facts have been submitted to me within the lasttwenty-four hours, and they in turn have given rise to somespeculations of a more general character. I have serious thoughts ofwriting a small monograph upon the uses of dogs in the work of thedetective."


1.  "Dear me! that is friendship indeed."
2.  "Yes, sir, he is very hard at it just now. I'm frightened for hishealth. He gets paler and thinner, and he eats nothing. 'When will yoube pleased to dine, Mr. Holmes?' Mrs. Hudson asked. 'Seven-thirty, theday after to-morrow,' said he. You know his way when he is keen on acase."
3.  "Unfortunately, madam, I had no possible alternative. I have beencommissioned to recover this immensely important paper. I musttherefore ask you, madam, to be kind enough to place it in my hands."The lady sprang to her feet, with the colour all dashed in aninstant from her beautiful face. Her eyes glazed- she tottered- Ithought that she would faint. Then with a grand effort she ralliedfrom the shock, and a supreme astonishment and indignation chasedevery other expression from her features.
4.  He had rung loudly at the door of a great dark house in the centreof Poultney Square. It was opened immediately, and the figure of atall woman was outlined against the dim-lit hall.
5.   "'All that I have to say has already crossed your mind,' said he."'Then possibly my answer has crossed yours,' I replied."'You stand fast?'
6.  "Pray sit down," said Sherlock Holmes. "We shall, I fancy, have agood deal to discuss." He took up his sheets of foolscap. "You are, ofcourse, the Mr. John Garrideb mentioned in this document. But surelyyou have been in England some time?"


1.  He picked it up and gazed at it in the peculiar introspectivefashion which was characteristic of him. "It is perhaps lesssuggestive than it might have been," he remarked, "and yet thereare a few inferences which are very distinct, and a few otherswhich represent at least a strong balance of probability. Thatthe man was highly intellectual is of course obvious upon the faceof it, and also that he was fairly well-to-do within the lastthree years, although he has now fallen upon evil days. He hadforesight, but has less now than formerly, pointing to a moralretrogression, which, when taken with the decline of his fortunes,seems to indicate some evil influence, probably drink, at workupon him. This may account also for the obvious fact that hiswife has ceased to love him."
2.  "My dear sir, there is no need. It is all in the way of professionalexperience."
3.  "I was struck dumb with astonishment at the sight of her, but myemotions were nothing to those which showed themselves upon her facewhen our eyes met. She seemed for an instant to wish to shrink backinside the house again; and then, seeing how useless all concealmentmust be, she came forward, with a very white face and frightenedeyes which belied the smile upon her lips.
4、  "Mr. Holmes," she said- and her white-gloved hands clasped andunclasped as she spoke- "I will speak frankly to you in the hopes thatit may induce you to speak frankly in return. There is completeconfidence between my husband and me on all matters save one. That oneis politics. On this his lips are sealed. He tells me nothing. Now,I am aware that there was a most deplorable occurrence in our houselast night. I know that a paper has disappeared. But because thematter is political my husband refuses to take me into his completeconfidence. Now it is essential- essential, I say- that I shouldthoroughly understand it. You are the only other person, save onlythese politicians, who knows the true facts. I beg you then, Mr.Holmes, to tell me exactly what has happened and what it will lead to.Tell me all, Mr. Holmes. Let no regard for your client's interestskeep you silent, for I assure you that his interests, if he would onlysee it, would be best served by taking me into his completeconfidence. What was this paper which was stolen?"
5、  "'Ah!' said he, 'you must not think me rude if I passed youwithout a word, my dear young lady. I was preoccupied with businessmatters.'

       "This is indeed an unexpected development," said my friend when wehad regained the cab. "I wonder if the death was natural, or whetherthe poor old fellow killed himself! If the latter, may it be takenas some sign of self-reproach for duty neglected? We must leave thatquestion to the future. Now we shall turn to the Cadogan Wests."A small but well-kept house in the outskirts of the town shelteredthe bereaved mother. The old lady was too dazed with grief to be ofany use to us, but at her side was a white-faced young lady, whointroduced herself as Miss Violet Westbury, the fiancee of the deadman, and the last to see him upon that fatal night.

      "The Haven is the name of Mr. Josiah Amberley's house," I explained."I think it would interest you, Holmes. It is like some penuriouspatrician who has sunk into the company of his inferiors. You knowthat particular quarter, the monotonous brick streets, the wearysuburban highways. Right in the middle of them, a little island ofancient culture and comfort, lies this old home, surrounded by ahigh sun-baked wall mottled with lichens and topped with moss, thesort of wall-"

    {  "I have been a governess for five years," said she, "in the familyof Colonel Spence Munro, but two months ago the colonel received anappointment at Halifax, in Nova Scotia, and took his children overto America with him, so that I found myself without a situation. Iadvertised, and I answered advertisements, but without success. Atlast the little money which I had saved began to run short, and Iwas at my wit's end as to what I should do.

       "Yes, but she is a good sort, or I am mistaken. She and herbrother are the only children of an iron-master somewhere upNorthumberland way. He got engaged to her when travelling last winter,and she came down to be introduced to his people, with her brotheras escort. Then came the smash, and she stayed on to nurse herlover, while brother Joseph, finding himself pretty snug, stayed on,too. I've been making a few independent inquiries, you see. But to-daymust be a day of inquiries."
