1.【址:a g 9 559⒐ v i p】1  "There was a time when I thought he was. But that was all changedwhen he understood the relations between Fitzroy and myself."Again the shadow round this strange man seemed to me to be takingmore definite shape. His record must be examined. His rooms must be,privately searched. Stackhurst was a willing collaborator, for inhis mind also suspicions were forming. We returned from our visit toThe haven with the hope that one free end of this tangled skein wasalready in our hands.
2.  "Have you heard the news, sir?" he gasped. "At the Cunningham's,sir!"
3.  "What a fool I have been!" he cried. "Of course, it is as you say.Then 'J.H.N.' are the only initials we have to solve. I have alreadyexamined the old Stock Exchange lists, and I can find no one in1883, either in the house or among the outside brokers, whose initialscorrespond with these. Yet I feel that the clue is the mostimportant one that I hold. You will admit, Mr. Holmes, that there is apossibility that these initials are those of the second person who waspresent- in other words, of the murderer. I would also urge that theintroduction into the case of a document relating to large masses ofvaluable securities gives us for the first time some indication of amotive for the crime."
4.  I sprang to my feet, for the expression upon the millionaire'sface was fiendish in its intensity, and he had raised his greatknotted fist. Holmes smiled languidly and reached his hand out for hispipe.
5.  well-deserved reputation. It is not a case in which you can possiblysucceed. You will have barren work, to say nothing of incurring somedanger. Let me very strongly advise you to draw off at once.'"'It is curious,' I answered, 'but that was the very advice whichI had intended to give you. I have a respect for your brains, Baron,and the little which I have seen of your personality has notlessened it. Let me put it to you as man to man. No one wants torake up your past and make you unduly uncomfortable. It is over, andyou are now in smooth waters, but if you persist in this marriageyou will raise up a swarm of powerful enemies who will never leave youalone until they have made England too hot to hold you. Is the gameworth it? Surely you would be wiser if you left the lady alone. Itwould not be pleasant for you if these facts of your past were broughtto her notice.'
6.  "To the best of my belief there were only the old butler and hiswife. They seemed to live in the simplest fashion."


1.  "Where are they now?"
2.  "The strongest of all holds where a woman is concerned- the holdof love. The fellow is, as you may have heard, extraordinarilyhandsome, with a most fascinating manner, a gentle voice, and that airof romance and mystery which means so much to a woman. He is said tohave the whole sex at his mercy and to have made ample use of thefact."
3.  "Ah, if I could give it a name it might go a long way towardssolving the case. On the whole, it was probably some creature of theweasel and stoat tribe-and yet it is larger than any of these that Ihave seen."
4.  "He has expensive tastes. He is a horse fancier. For a short time heplayed polo at Hurlingham, but then this Prague affair got noisedabout and he had to leave. He collects books and pictures. He is a manwith a considerable artistic side to his Nature. He is, I believe, arecognized authority upon Chinese pottery and has written a bookupon the subject."
5.  "Mrs. Rucastle seemed to me to be colourless in mind as well as infeature. She impressed me neither favourably nor the reverse. Shewas a nonentity. It was easy to see that she was passionatelydevoted both to her husband and to her little son. Her light gray eyeswandered continually from one to the other, noting every little wantand forestalling it if possible. He was kind to her also in his bluff,boisterous fashion, and on the whole they seemed to be a happy couple.And yet she had some secret sorrow, this woman. She would often belost in deep thought, with the saddest look upon her face. More thanonce I have surprised her in tears. I have thought sometimes that itwas the disposition of her child which weighed upon her mind, for Ihave never met so utterly spoiled and so ill-natured a littlecreature. He is small for his age, with a head which is quitedisproportionately large. His whole life appears to be spent in analternation between savage fits of passion and gloomy intervals ofsulking. Giving pain to any creature weaker than himself seems to behis one idea of amusement, and he shows quite remarkable talent inplanning the capture of mice, little birds, and insects. But I wouldrather not talk about the creature, Mr. Holmes, and, indeed, he haslittle to do with my story."
6.  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."


1.  "You must let me speak," said the woman, in an imperative voice, andher face contracted as if in pain. "When he had fallen I rushed fromthe room, chose the wrong door, and found myself in my husband's room.He spoke of giving me up. I showed him that if he did so, his life wasin my hands. If he gave me to the law, I could give him to theBrotherhood. It was not that I wished to live for my own sake, butit was that I desired to accomplish my purpose. He knew that I woulddo what I said- that his own fate was involved in mine. For thatreason, and for no other, he shielded me. He thrust me into thatdark hiding-place- a relic of old days, known only to himself. He tookhis meals in his own room, and so was able to give me part of hisfood. It was agreed that when the police left the house I shouldslip away by night and come back no more. But in some way you haveread our plans." She tore from the bosom of her dress a smallpacket. "These are my last words," said she; "here is the packet whichwill save Alexis. I confide it to your honour and to your love ofjustice. Take it! You will deliver it at the Russian Embassy. Now, Ihave done my duty, and-"
2.  "Tut, tut, we have solved some worse problems. At least we haveplenty of material, if we can only use it. Come, then, and, havingexhausted the Palmer, let us see what the Dunlop with the patchedcover has to offer us."
3.  "Your hands, my dear sir. Your right hand is quite a sizelarger than your left. You have worked with it, and the musclesare more developed."
4.  "Your presence might be invaluable."
5.   "A dozen yards or so."
6.  "Oh, to the other side of the West End. It may be some time before Iget back. Don't wait up for me in case I should be late.""How are you getting on?"


1.  "My first conjecture was that possibly there had been somepassages between this young lady and the old soldier, which the formerhad now confessed to the wife. That would account for the angryreturn, and also for the girl's denial that anything had occurred. Norwould it be entirely incompatible with most of the words overheard.But there was the reference to David, and there was the knownaffection of the colonel for his wife to weigh against it, to saynothing of the tragic intrusion of this other man, which might, ofcourse, be entirely disconnected with what had gone before. It was noteasy to pick one's steps, but, on the whole, I was inclined to dismissthe idea that there had been anything between the colonel and MissMorrison, but more than ever convinced that the young lady held theclue as to what it was which had turned Mrs. Barclay to hatred ofher husband. I took the obvious course, therefore, of calling uponMiss M., of explaining to her that I was perfectly certain that sheheld the facts in her possession, and of assuring her that her friend,Mrs. Barclay, might find herself in the dock upon a capital chargeunless the matter were cleared up.
2.  "In accordance with the scheme which we had formed in order totest our theories" ["the 'we' is rather fine, Watson, is it not?"]"I went down to the Albert Dock yesterday at 6 P.M., and boarded theS.S. May Day, belonging to the Liverpool, Dublin, and London SteamPacket Company. On inquiry, I found that there was a steward onboard of the name of James Browner and that he had acted during thevoyage in such an extraordinary manner that the captain had beencompelled to relieve him of his duties. On descending to his berth,I found him seated upon a chest with his head sunk upon his hands,rocking himself to and fro. He is a big, powerful chap,clean-shaven, and very swarthy- something like Aldridge, who helped usin the bogus laundry affair. He jumped up when he heard my business,and I had my whistle to my lips to call a couple of river police,who were round the corner, but he seemed to have no heart in him,and he held out his hands quietly enough for the darbies. We broughthim along to the cells, and his box as well for we thought there mightbe something incriminating; but, bar a big sharp knife such as mostsailors have, we got nothing for our trouble. However, we find that weshall want no more evidence, for on being brought before the inspectorat the station he asked leave to make a statement which was, ofcourse, taken down, just as he made it, by our shorthand man. We hadthree copies typewritten, one of which I enclose. The affair proves,as I always thought it would, to be an extremely simple one, but Iam obliged to you for assisting me in my investigation. With kindregards,
3.  "Lady St. Simon said something about 'jumping a claim.' She wasaccustomed to use slang of the kind. I have no idea what she meant.""American slang is very expressive sometimes. And what did your wifedo when she finished speaking to her maid?"
4、  "Disease?" said I.
5、  "Patrick Cairns."

       "I tapped at the door as agreed. Lucas opened it. I followed himinto his room, leaving the hall door ajar behind me, for I feared tobe alone with the man. I remember that there was a woman outside asI entered. Our business was soon done. He had my letter on his desk, Ihanded him the document. He gave me the letter. At this instantthere was a sound at the door. There were steps in the passage.Lucas quickly turned back the drugget, thrust the document into somehiding-place there, and covered it over.
