1.【址:a g 9 559⒐ v i p】1  "I was awakened in the night by the dog barking most furiously. PoorRoy, he is chained now near the stable. I may say that I alwayssleep with my door locked; for, as Jack- as Mr. Bennett- will tellyou, we all have a feeling of impending danger. My room is on thesecond floor. It happened that the blind was up in my window, andthere was bright moonlight outside. As I lay with my eyes fixed uponthe square of light, listening to the frenzied barkings of the dog,I was amazed to see my father's face looking in at me. Mr. Holmes, Inearly died of surprise and horror. There it was pressed against thewindow-pane, and one hand seemed to be raised as if to push up thewindow. If that window had opened, I think I should have gone mad.It was no delusion, Mr. Holmes. Don't deceive yourself by thinking so.I dare say it was twenty seconds or so that I lay paralyzed andwatched the face. Then it vanished, but I could not- I could notspring out of bed and look out after it. I lay cold and shivering tillmorning. At breakfast he was sharp and fierce in manner, and made noallusion to the adventure of the night. Neither did I, but I gave anexcuse for coming to town- and here I am."
2.  "And who could it be who was her confederate? A lover evidently, forwho else could outweigh the love and gratitude which she must feelto you? I knew that you went out little, and that your circle offriends was a very limited one. But among them was Sir GeorgeBurnwell. I had heard of him before as being a man of evilreputation among women. It must have been he who wore those bootsand retained the missing gems. Even though he knew that Arthur haddiscovered him, he might still flatter himself that he was safe, forthe lad could not say a word without compromising his own family."Well, your own good sense will suggest what measures I took next. Iwent in the shape of a loafer to Sir George's house, managed to pickup an acquaintance with his valet, learned that his master had cut hishead the night before, and, finally, at the expense of sixshillings, made all sure by buying a pair of his cast-off shoes.With these I journeyed down to Streatham and saw that they exactlyfitted the tracks."
3.  "The next I heard of Frank was that he was in Montana, and then hewent prospecting in Arizona, and then I heard of him from NewMexico. After that came a long newspaper story about how a miners'camp had been attacked by Apache Indians, and there was my Frank'sname among the killed. I fainted dead away, and I was very sick formonths after. Pa thought I had a decline and took me to half thedoctors in 'Frisco. Not a word of news came for a year and more, sothat I never doubted that Frank was really dead. Then Lord St. Simoncame to 'Frisco, and we came to London, and a marriage was arranged,and pa was very pleased, but I felt all the time that no man on thisearth would ever take the place in my heart that had been given tomy poor Frank.
4.  "Does she know about the Austrian episode?"
5.  "You are right, Holmes. We are bound to go."
6.  "She left the office and I followed her. She walked up theKennington Road, and I kept behind her. Presently she went into ashop. Mr. Holmes, it was an undertaker's."


1.  "Well, I want to see the man who lives here, whatever he may callhimself," said Holmes firmly.
2.  "Get it printed as soon as possible," he said; "I think your idea isan excellent one."
3.  Lestrade stared.
4.  But it was only for a moment that we were at fault. At one corner,the corner nearest the room which we had left, there was a seconddoor. Holmes sprang to it and pulled it open. A coat and waistcoatwere lying on the floor, and from a hook behind the door, with his ownbraces round his neck, was hanging the managing director of theFranco-Midland Hardware Company. His knees were drawn up, his headhung at a dreadful angle to his body, and the clatter of his heelsagainst the door made the noise which had broken in upon ourconversation. In an instant I had caught him round the waist andheld him up while Holmes and Pycroft untied the elastic bands whichhad disappeared between the livid creases of skin. Then we carried himinto the other room, where he lay with a clay-coloured face, puffinghis purple lips in and out with every breath-a dreadful wreck of allthat he had been but five minutes before.
5.  "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?"
6.  "The main fact is that he had the pearl, and at that moment, when itwas his person, he was pursued by the police. He made for thefactory in which worked, and he knew that he had only a few minutes inwhich to conceal this enormously valuable prize, which would otherwisebe found on him when he was searched. Six plaster casts of Napoleonwere drying in the passage. One of them was still soft. In aninstant Beppo, a skilful workman, made a small hole in the wetplaster, dropped in the pearl, and with a few touches covered over theaperture once more. It was an admirable hiding-place. No one couldpossibly find it. But Beppo was condemned to a year's imprisonment,and in the meanwhile his six busts were scattered over London. Hecould not tell which contained his treasure. Only by breaking themcould he see. Even shaking would tell him nothing, for as theplaster was wet it was probable that the pearl would adhere toit-as, in fact, it has done. Beppo did not despair, and he conductedhis search with considerable ingenuity and perseverance. Through acousin who works with Gelder, he found out the retail firms who hadbought the busts. He managed to find employment with Morse Hudson, andin that way tracked down three of them. The pearl was not there, Then,with the help of some Italian employee, he succeeded in finding outwhere the other three busts had gone. The first was at Harker's. Therehe was dogged by his confederate, who held Beppo responsible for theloss of the pearl, and he stabbed him in the scuffle which followed.""If he was his confederate, why should he carry his photograph?" Iasked.


1.  "No, here."
2.  "But your appearance, Holmes- your ghastly face?"
3.  "I could deceive you by saying so, Mr. Holmes, but it would not betrue. De Merville is a broken man. The strong soldier has been utterlydemoralized by this incident. He has lost the nerve which never failedhim on the battlefield and has become a weak, doddering old man,utterly incapable of contending with a brilliant, forceful rascal likethis Austrian. My client, however, is an old friend, one who has knownthe General intimately for many years and taken a paternal interest inthis young girl since she wore short frocks. He cannot see thistragedy consummated without some attempt to stop it. There isnothing in which Scotland Yard can act. It was his own suggestion thatyou should be called in, but it was, as I have said, on the expressstipulation that he should not be personally involved in the matter. Ihave no doubt, Mr. Holmes, with your great powers you could easilytrace my client back through me, but I must ask you, as a point ofhonour, to refrain from doing so, and not to break in upon hisincognito."
4.  "Curious people, Watson! I don't pretend to understand it all yet,but very curious people anyway. It's a double-winged house, and theservants live on one side, the family on the other. There's no linkbetween the two save for Henderson's own servant, who serves thefamily's meals. Everything is carried to a certain door, which formsthe one connection. Governess and children hardly go out at all,except into the garden. Henderson never by any chance walks alone. Hisdark secretary is like his shadow. The gossip among the servants isthat their master is terribly afraid of something. 'Sold his soul tothe devil in exchange for money,' says Warner, 'and expects hiscreditor to come up and claim his own.' Where they came from, or whothey are, nobody has an idea. They are very violent. Twice Hendersonhas lashed at folk with his dog-whip, and only his long purse andheavy compensation have kept him out of the courts.
6.  "There is one thing," said John Openshaw. He rummaged in hiscoat pocket, and, drawing out a piece of discoloured, blue-tintedpaper, he laid it out upon the table. "I have some remembrance,"said he, "that on the day when my uncle burned the papers Iobserved that the small, unburned margins which lay amid the asheswere of this particular colour. I found this single sheet uponthe floor of his room, and I am inclined to think that it may beone of the papers which has, perhaps, fluttered out from among theothers, and in that way has escaped destruction. Beyond themention of pips, I do not see that it helps us much. I thinkmyself that it is a page from some private diary. The writing isundoubtedly my uncle's."


1.  "What happened there, madam?"
2.  "What is it, then?"
3.  "Why so?"
4、  "I believe that you are the devil himself!" he cried.
5、  "Proceed then."

      "Instead of being ruined, my good sir, you will find that yourreputation has been enormously enhanced. Just make a few alterationsin that report which you were writing, and they will understand howhard it is to throw dust in the eyes of Inspector Lestrade.""And you don't want your name to appear?"

    {  Lestrade looked at Holmes as if he thought he was going out of hismind. I confess that I was myself surprised both at his hilariousmanner and at his rather wild observation.

      Percy Phelps was walking very slowly, leaning upon the arm of hisfuture brother-in-law. Holmes walked swiftly across the lawn, and wewere at the open window of the bedroom long before the others came up."Miss Harrison," said Holmes, speaking with the utmost intensityof manner, "you must stay where you are all day. Let nothing preventyou from staying where you are all day. It is of the utmostimportance."}

      "Well, it is just as I have been telling you, Mr. SherlockHolmes," said Jabez Wilson, mopping his forehead; "I have a smallpawnbroker's business at Coburg Square, near the City. It's not avery large affair, and of late years it has not done more thanjust give me a living. I used to be able to keep two assistants,but now I only keep one; and I would have a job to pay him butthat he is willing to come for half wages so as to learn thebusiness."
