1.【址:a g 9 559⒐ v i p】1  The village shop provided a ball of stout twine.
2.  "But these glasses do puzzle me, I confess. Lady Brackenstallactually saw the three men drinking, did she not?"
3.  "But who used him roughly?"
4.  "There's one thing I ought to tell you before I go further. Whenwe married, my wife made over all her property to me-rather against mywill, for I saw how awkward it would be if my business affairs wentwrong. However, she would have it so, and it was done. Well, about sixweeks ago she came to me.
5.  "Yes, I can."
6.  "What do you propose now, Mr. Holmes?" asked our client."Well, in investigating this minor affair we must not lose sightof our main inquiry. It would be a very great help to me if youwould come up to London with us."


1.  I confess that I had not up to now taken a very serious view ofthe case, which had seemed to me rather grotesque and bizarre thandangerous. That a man should lie in wait for and follow a veryhandsome woman is no unheard-of thing, and if he has so littleaudacity that he not only dared not address her, but even fled fromher approach, he was not a very formidable assailant. The ruffianWoodley was a very different person, but, except on one occasion, hehad not molested our client, and now he visited the house ofCarruthers without intruding upon her presence. The man on the bicyclewas doubtless a member of those week-end parties at the Hall ofwhich the publican had spoken, but who he was, or what he wanted,was as obscure as ever. It was the severity of Holmes's manner and thefact that he slipped a revolver into his pocket before leaving ourrooms which impressed me with the feeling that tragedy might proveto lurk behind this curious train of events.
2.  "Certainly not, sir. Nothing would induce me to leave my collection.But this gentleman has assured me that he will buy me out as soon aswe have established our claim. Five million dollars was the sum named.There are a dozen specimens in the market at the present momentwhich fill gaps in my collection, and which I am unable to purchasefor want of a few hundred pounds. Just think what I could do with fivemillion dollars. Why, I have the nucleus of a national collection. Ishall be the Hans Sloane of my age."
4.  "I had told Mrs. Mason. She knew."
5.  "I should like to have a peep at each of them," said Holmes. "Isit possible?"
6.  "My dear madam," said I, "I am an old campaigner, and if I werenot I can very well see that no apology is needed. If I can be ofany assistance, either to you or to my friend here, I shall beindeed happy."


1.  There was the case, and of course there was but one way out of it.Might I not escort her to this place? And then, as a second thought,why should she come at all? I was Isa Whitney's medical adviser, andas such I had influence over him. I could manage it better if I werealone. I promised her on my word that I would send him home in a cabwithin two hours if he were indeed at the address which she hadgiven me. And so in ten minutes I had left my armchair and cheerysitting-room behind me, and was speeding eastward in a hansom on astrange errand, as it seemed to me at the time, though the future onlycould show how strange it was to be.
2.  A man striding up the path which led to the door. He was a tall,handsome, swarthy fellow, clad in a suit of flannel, with a Panamahat, a bristling black beard, and a great, aggressive hooked nose, andflourishing a cane as he walked. He swaggered up a path as if as ifthe place belonged to him, and we heard his loud, confident peal atthe bell.
3.  Holmes smiled his appreciation.
4.  "You have not unbacked them? How long have you had them?""They arrived last week."
5.   "And on what day did he meet his death?"
6.  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.


1.  "I think that I can help you to pass an hour in an interesting andprofitable manner," said Holmes, drawing his chair up to the table,and spreading out in front of him the various papers upon which wererecorded the antics of the dancing men. "As to you, friend Watson, Iowe you every atonement for having allowed your natural curiosity toremain so long unsatisfied. To you, Inspector, the whole incidentmay appeal as a remarkable professional study. I must tell you,first of all, the interesting circumstances connected with theprevious consultations which Mr. Hilton Cubitt has had with me inBaker Street." He then shortly recapitulated the facts which havealready been recorded. "I have here in front of me these singularproductions, at which one might smile, had they not provedthemselves to be the forerunners of so terrible a tragedy. I am fairlyfamiliar with all forms of secret writings, and am myself the authorof a trifling monograph upon the subject, in which I analyze onehundred and sixty separate ciphers, but I confess that this isentirely new to me. The object of those who invented the system hasapparently been to conceal that these characters convey a message, andto give the idea that they are the mere random sketches of children."Having once recognized, however, that the symbols stood forletters, and having applied the rules which guide us in all forms ofsecret writings, the solution was easy enough. The first messagesubmitted to me was so short that it was impossible for me to domore than to say, with some confidence, that the symbol [of the stickmanwith both arms extended up in the air]
3.  But there was a delay in that answering telegram, and two days ofimpatience followed, during which Holmes pricked up his ears atevery ring of the bell. the evening of the second there came aletter from Hilton Cubitt. All was quiet with him, save that a longinscription had appeared that morning upon the pedestal of thesundial. He inclosed a copy of it, which is here reproduced:(See illustration.)
4、  "Ah! there lies our problem. There is one rather obvious line ofinvestigation." He took down the great book in which, day by day, hefiled the agony columns of the various London journals. "Dear me!"said he, turning over the pages, "what a chorus of groans, cries,and bleatings! What a rag-bag of singular happenings! But surely themost valuable hunting-ground that ever was given to a student of theunusual! This person is alone and cannot be approached by letterwithout a breach of that absolute secrecy which is desired. How is anynews or any message to reach him from without? Obviously byadvertisement through a news paper. There seems no other way, andfortunately we need concern ourselves with the one paper only. Hereare the Daily Gazette extracts of the last fortnight. 'Lady with ablack boa at Prince's Skating Club'- that we may pass. 'Surely Jimmywill not break his mother's heart'- that appears to be irrelevant. 'Ifthe lady who fainted in the Brixton bus'- she does not interest me.'Every day my heart longs-' Bleat, Watson- unmitigated bleat! Ah, thisis a little more possible. Listen to this: 'Be patient. Will find somesure means of communication. Meanwhile, this column. G.' That is twodays after Mrs. Warren's lodger arrived. It sounds plausible, doesit not? The mysterious one could understand English, even if hecould not print it. Let us see if we can pick up the trace again. Yes,here we are- three days later. 'Am making successful arrangements.Patience and prudence. The clouds will pass. G.' Nothing for a weekafter that. Then comes something much more definite: 'The path isclearing. If I find chance signal message remember code agreed- one A,two B, and so on. You will hear soon. G.' That was in yesterday'spaper, and there is nothing in to-day's. It's all very appropriateto Mrs. Warren's lodger. If we wait a little, Watson, I don't doubtthat the affair will grow more intelligible."
5、  "Oh, no, my friend Watson is a medical man, you know, and he'll lookafter you. We'll have our lunch here, if you will permit us, andthen we shall all three set off for town together."

      "Yes, Mr. Holmes, Cyril Morton, an electrical engineer, and wehope to be married at the end of the summer. Dear me, how did I gettalking about him? What I wished to say was that Mr. Woodley wasperfectly odious, but that Mr. Carruthers, who was a much older man,was more agreeable. He was a dark, sallow, clean-shaven, silentperson, but he had polite manners and a pleasant smile. He inquiredhow we were left, and on finding that we were very poor, hesuggested that I should come and teach music to his only daughter,aged ten. I said that I did not like to leave my mother, on which hesuggested that I should go home to her every week-end, and heoffered me a hundred a year, which was certainly splendid pay. So itended by my accepting, and I went down to Chiltern Grange, about sixmiles from Farnham. Mr. Carruthers was a widower, but he had engaged alady housekeeper, a very respectable, elderly person, called Mrs.Dixon, to look after his establishment. The child was a dear, andeverything promised well. Mr. Carruthers was very kind and verymusical, and we had most pleasant evenings together. Every week-endI went home to my mother in town.

      Hall Pycroft shook his clenched hands in the air. "Good Lord!" hecried "while I have been fooled in this way, what has this otherHall Pycroft been doing at Mawson's? What should we do, Mr. Holmes?Tell me what to do."

       Watson had taken a step forward when the bedroom door opened, andthe long, thin form of Holmes emerged, his face pale and drawn but hisstep and bearing as active as ever. With a single spring he was at thewindow, and had drawn the blind once more.

      "Well, when they closed their League offices that was a signthat they cared no longer about Mr. Jabez Wilson's presence--inother words, that they had completed their tunnel. But it wasessential that they should use it soon, as it might be discovered,or the bullion might be removed. Saturday would suit them betterthan any other day, as it would give them two days for theirescape. For all these reasons I expected them to come to-night.""You reasoned it out beautifully," I exclaimed in unfeignedadmiration. "It is so long a chain, and yet every link ringstrue."

    {  I turned in uncontrollable astonishment. The aged ecclesiastic hadturned his face towards me. For an instant the wrinkles weresmoothed away, the nose drew away from the chin, the lower lipceased to protrude and the mouth to mumble, the dull eyes regainedtheir fire, the drooping figure expanded. The next the whole framecollapsed again, and Holmes had gone as quickly as he had come."Good heavens!" I cried, "how you startled me!"
