1.【址:a g 9 559⒐ v i p】1  "See that you keep yourself out of my grip," he snarled, and hurlingthe twisted poker into the fireplace he strode out of the room."He seems a very amiable person," said Holmes, laughing. "I am notquite so bulky, but if he had remained I might have shown him thatmy grip was not much more feeble than his own." As he spoke hepicked up the steel poker and, with a sudden effort, straightened itout again.
2.  "I suppose he would."
3.  "Tell me," said he at last, "could you swear that this was a man'sface which you saw at the window?"
4.  "Even now I was in considerable difficulty, but a happy thoughtput me in possession of several other letters. It occurred to methat if these appeals came, as I expected, from someone who had beenintimate with the lady in her early life, a combination whichcontained two E's with three letters between might very well stand forthe name `ELSIE.' On examination I found that such a combinationformed the termination of the message which was three timesrepeated. It was certainly some appeal to `Elsie.' In this way I hadgot my L, S, and I. But what appeal could it be? There were onlyfour letters in the word which preceded `Elsie,' and it ended in E.Surely the word must be `COME.' I tried all other four lettersending in E, but could find none to fit the case. So now I was inpossession of C, O, and M, and I was in a position to attack the firstmessage once more, dividing it into words and putting dots for eachsymbol which was still unknown. So treated, it worked out in thisfashion:
5.  "Well, Mr. Gibson, at least I dismiss you. I should have thoughtmy words were plain."
6.  "But the reason is very obvious. The pressure of public opinioncan do in the town what the law cannot accomplish. There is no lane sovile that the scream of a tortured child, or the thud of adrunkard's blow, does not beget sympathy and indignation among theneighbours, and then the whole machinery of justice is ever so closethat a word of complaint can set it going, and there is but a stepbetween the crime and the dock. But look at these lonely houses,each in its own fields, filled for the most part with poor ignorantfolk who know little of the law. Think of the deeds of hellishcruelty, the hidden wickedness which may go on, year in, year out,in such places, and none the wiser. Had this lady who appeals to usfor help gone to live in Winchester, I should never have had a fearfor her. It is the five miles of country which makes the danger.Still, it is clear that she is not personally threatened.""No. If she can come to Winchester to meet us she can get away.""Quite so. She has her freedom."


1.  The quick eye of my companion had noted some change in her manner.She coloured and hesitated.
2.  "He will live," said I.
3.  I saw nothing of my friend for the next few days, but on thefollowing Monday evening I had a short note asking me to meet him nextday at the train. From what he told me as we travelled up to Camfordall was well, the peace of the professor's house had been unruffled,and his own conduct perfectly normal. This also was the report whichwas given us by Mr. Bennett himself when he called upon us thatevening at our old quarters in the Chequers. "He heard from his Londoncorrespondent to-day. There was a letter and there was a small packet,each with the cross under the stamp which warned me not to touch them.There has been nothing else."
4.  I placed my revolver, cocked, upon the top of the wooden casebehind which I crouched. Holmes shot the slide across the frontof his lantern and left us in pitch darkness--such an absolutedarkness as I have never before experienced. The smell of hotmetal remained to assure us that the light was still there, readyto flash out at a moment's notice. To me, with my nerves workedup to a pitch of expectancy, there was something depressing andsubduing in the sudden gloom, and in the cold dank air of thevault.
5.  "You think so, too?"
6.  "Deserted you?"


1.  "Wonderful!" said Lestrade. "Wonderful! It's all as clear ascrystal, as you put it. But what is the object of this deep deception,Mr. Holmes?"
2.  "But now came the real difficulty of the inquiry. The order of theEnglish letters after E is by no means well marked, and anypreponderance which may be shown in an average of a printed sheetmay be reversed in a single short sentence. Speaking roughly, T, A, O,I, N, S, H, R, D, and L are the numerical order in which lettersoccur, but T, A, O, and I are very nearly abreast of each other, andit would be an endless task to try each combination until a meaningwas arrived at I therefore waited for fresh material. In my secondinterview with Mr. Hilton Cubitt he was able to give me two othershort sentences and one message, which appeared- since there was noflag- to be a single word. Here are the symbols. Now, in the singleword I have already got the two E's coming second and fourth in a wordof five letters. It might be `sever,' or `lever,' or `never.' Therecan be no question that the latter as a reply to an appeal is farthe most probable, and the circumstances pointed to its being areply written by the lady. Accepting it as correct, we are now able tosay that the symbols [of the stickman with right hand on his hip, leftarm raised and knees bent, stickman with leg extended to the left, andstickman with both arms raised in the air and left leg extended.]stand respectively for N, V, and R.
3.  Holmes took a paper from his pocket and laid a ten-pound note uponthe table.
4.  "Perhaps she could not or would not have told you much.""I did not wish her to tell me anything. I only wanted to look ather. However, I think that I have got all that I want. Drive us tosome decent hotel, cabby, where we may have some lunch, and afterwardswe shall drop down upon friend Lestrade at the police-station."We had a pleasant little meal together, during which Holmes wouldtalk about nothing but violins, narrating with great exultation how hehad purchased his own Stradivarius, which was worth at least fivehundred guineas, at a Jew broker's in Tottenham Court Road forfifty-five shillings. This led him to Paganini, and we sat for an hourover a bottle of claret while he told me anecdote after anecdote ofthat extraordinary man. The afternoon was far advanced and the hotglare had softened into a mellow glow before we found ourselves at thepolice-station. Lestrade was waiting for us at the door."A telegram for you, Mr. Holmes," said he.
5.   What a time it seemed! From comparing notes afterwards it wasbut an hour and a quarter, yet it appeared to me that the nightmust have almost gone, and the dawn be breaking above us. Mylimbs were weary and stiff, for I feared to change my position;yet my nerves were worked up to the highest pitch of tension, andmy hearing was so acute that I could not only hear the gentlebreathing of my companions, but I could distinguish the deeper,heavier in-breath of the bulky Jones from the thin, sighing noteof the bank director. From my position I could look over the casein the direction of the floor. Suddenly my eyes caught the glintof a light.
6.  As I have said, there was a broad corridor there, which ranoutside three empty bedrooms. At one end of the corridor we were allmarshalled by Sherlock Holmes, the constables grinning and Lestradestaring at my friend with amazement, expectation, and derision chasingeach other across his features. Holmes stood before us with the air ofa conjurer who is performing a trick.


2.  "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?"
3.  "My dear Holmes!"
4、  "Not in the least. Is it possible that even now, when I giveyou these results, you are unable to see how they are attained?""I have no doubt that I am very stupid, but I must confessthat I am unable to follow you. For example, how did you deducethat this man was intellectual?"
5、  "So help me the Lord! Masser Holmes, I told you the truth before.I don't know. My boss Barney gives me orders and that's all.""Well, just bear in mind, Steve, that the lady in that house, andeverything under that roof, is under my protection. Don't forget it.""All right, Masser Holmes. I'll remember."

      "They discovered him a year ago," said Miss Burnet, who had sat upand was now intently following the conversation. "Once already hislife has been attempted, but some evil spirit shielded him. Now,again, it is the noble, chivalrous Garcia who has fallen, while themonster goes safe. But another will come, and yet another, untilsome day justice will be done, that is as certain as the rise ofto-morrow's sun." Her thin hands clenched, and her worn faceblanched with the passion of her hatred.}

      "I found that country pub which I had already recommended to yournotice, and there I made my discreet inquiries. I was in the bar,and a garrulous landlord was giving me all that I wanted. Williamsonis a white-bearded man, and he lives alone with a small staff ofservants at the Hall. There is some rumor that he is or has been aclergyman, but one or two incidents of his short residence at the Hallstruck me as peculiarly unecclesiastical. I have already made someinquiries at a clerical agency, and they tell me that there was aman of that name in orders, whose career has been a singularly darkone. The landlord further informed me that there are usually weekendvisitors- `a warm lot, sir'- at the Hall, and especially one gentlemanwith a red moustache, Mr. Woodley by name, who was always there. Wehad got as far as this, when who should walk in but the gentlemanhimself, who had been drinking his beer in the tap-room and hadheard the whole conversation. Who was I? What did I want? What did Imean by asking questions? He had a fine flow of language, and hisadjectives were very vigorous. He ended a string of abuse by a viciousbackhander, which I failed to entirely avoid. The next few minuteswere delicious. It was a straight left against a slogging ruffian. Iemerged as you see me. Mr. Woodley went home in a cart. So ended mycountry trip, and it must be confessed that, however enjoyable, my dayon the Surrey border has not been much more profitable than your own."The Thursday brought us another letter from our client.You will not be surprised, Mr. Holmes [said she] to hear that I amleaving Mr. Carruthers's employment. Even the high pay cannotreconcile me to the discomforts of my situation. On Saturday I come upto town, and I do not intend to return. Mr. Carruthers has got a trap,and so the dangers of the lonely road, if there ever were any dangers,are now over.

    {  Such was the remarkable narrative to which I listened on thatApril evening- a narrative which would have been utterly incredible tome had it not been confirmed by the actual sight of the tall, sparefigure and the keen, eager face, which I had never thought to seeagain. In some manner he had learned of my own sad bereavement, andhis sympathy was shown in his manner rather than in his words. "Workis the best antidote to sorrow, my dear Watson," said he; "and Ihave a piece of work for us both to-night which, if we can bring it toa successful conclusion, will in itself justify a man's life on thisplanet." In vain I begged him to tell me more. "You will hear andsee enough before morning," he answered. "We have three years of thepast to discuss. Let that suffice until half-past nine, when westart upon the notable adventure of the empty house."
