1.【址:a g 9 559⒐ v i p】1  Holmes looked thoroughly surprised at Miss Presbury's narrative."My dear young lady, you say that your room is on the secondfloor. Is there a long ladder in the garden?"
2.  "Well asked, Watson. You would certainly fall down badly if youdid not know the value of your own wares. This saucer was got for meby Sir James, and comes, I understand, from the collection of hisclient. You will not exaggerate if you say that it could hardly bematched in the world."
3.  Sherlock Holmes leaned back in his chair and laughed heartily."Have you dragged the basin of Trafalgar Square fountain?" he asked."Why? What do you mean?"
4.  Lestrade shrugged his shoulders. "I am a practical man," he said,"and I really cannot undertake to go about the country looking for aleft-handed gentleman with a game-leg. I should become thelaughing-stock of Scotland Yard."
5.  "We went upstairs together, the colonel first with the lamp, the fatmanager and I behind him. It was a labyrinth of an old house, withcorridors, passages, narrow winding staircases, and little lowdoors, the thresholds of which were hollowed out by the generationswho had crossed them. There were no carpets and no signs of anyfurniture above the ground floor, while the plaster was peeling offthe walls, and the damp was breaking through in green, unhealthyblotches. I tried to put on as unconcerned an air as possible, but Ihad not forgotten the warnings of the lady, even though Idisregarded them, and I kept a keen eye upon my two companions.Ferguson appeared to be a morose and silent man, but I could seefrom the little that he said that he was at least a fellow-countryman."Colonel Lysander Stark stopped at last before a low door, whichhe unlocked. Within was a small, square room, in which the three of uscould hardly get at one time. Ferguson remained outside, and thecolonel ushered me in.
6.  "Exactly. It came by post. 'I send you my temptation. I willfollow your advice.' That was the message. I think, Watson, we canguess the name of the brave woman who sent it."


1.  "Very likely. It would certainly be a dangerous exploit for anynormal man."
2.  "'That is true. But what could he have to do with this old familycustom of ours, and what does this rigimarole mean?'
3.  She cast a look of the deepest disdain in his direction. "Why shouldyou cling so hard to that wretched life of yours, Sergius?" saidshe. "It has done harm to many and good to none- not even to yourself.However, it is not for me to cause the frail thread to be snappedbefore God's time. I have enough already upon my soul since Icrossed the threshold of this cursed house. But I must speak or Ishall be too late.
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.  "My dear Holmes!"
6.  "`Oh, just as you like,' said she, a little huffed. `Which isit you want, then?'


1.  "There are one or two small points which I should desire to clear upbefore I go," said he. "Your absence, Mr. Phelps, will in some waysrather assist me. Watson, when you reach London you would oblige me bydriving at once to Baker Street with our friend here, and remainingwith him until I see you again. It is fortunate that you are oldschool-fellows, as you must have much to talk over. Mr. Phelps canhave the spare bedroom to-night, and I will be with you in time forbreakfast, for there is a train which will take me into Waterloo ateight."
2.  I can assure you that you are wasting your time in dogging mymovements. I have, as you discovered last night, a window at theback of my brougham, and if you desire a twenty-mile ride which willlead you to the spot from which you started, you have only to followme. Meanwhile, I can inform you that no spying upon me can in anyway help Mr. Godfrey Staunton, and I am convinced that the bestservice you can do to that gentleman is to return at once to Londonand to report to your employer that you are unable to trace him.Your time in Cambridge will certainly be wasted.
3.  "By no means. This train stops at Canterbury; and there is always atleast a quarter of an hour's delay at the boat. He will catch usthere."
4.  He held up his candle before an extraordinary object which stoodat the back of the dresser. It was so wrinkled and shrunken andwithered that it was difficult to say what it might have been. Onecould but say that it was black and leathery and that it bore someresemblance to a dwarfish, human figure. At first, as I examined it, Ithought that it was a mummified negro baby, and then it seemed avery twisted and ancient monkey. Finally I was left in doubt as towhether it was animal or human. A double band of white shells wasstrung round the centre of it.
5.   "Yes, that is so."
6.  "Tropical by birth and tropical by nature. A child of the sun and ofpassion. She had loved him as such women can love, but when her ownphysical charms had faded- I am told that they once were great-there was nothing to hold him. We all liked her and felt for her andhated him for the way that he treated her. But he is plausible andcunning. That is all I have to say to you. Don't take him at hisface value. There is more behind. Now I'll go. No, no, don't detainme! He is almost due."


1.  "Well! Well!" said Holmes after an interval of silence. "Mr.Gibson seems to have a nice loyal household. But the warning is auseful one, and now we can only wait till the man himself appears."Sharp at the hour we heard a heavy step upon the stairs, and thefamous millionaire was shown into the room. As I looked upon him Iunderstood not only the fears and dislike of his manager but alsothe execrations which so many business rivals have heaped upon hishead. If I were a sculptor and desired to idealize the successfulman of affairs, iron of nerve and leathery of conscience, I shouldchoose Mr. Neil Gibson as my model. His tall, gaunt, craggy figure hada suggestion of hunger and rapacity. An Abraham Lincoln keyed tobase uses instead of high ones would give some idea of the man. Hisface might have been chiselled in granite, hard-set, craggy,remorseless, with deep lines upon it, the sears of many a crisis. Coldgray eyes, looking shrewdly out from under bristling brows, surveyedus each in turn. He bowed in perfunctory fashion as Holmes mentionedmy name, and then with a masterful air of possession he drew a chairup to my companion and seated himself with his bony knees almosttouching him.
2.  "Oh, yes! In a hundred other ways he has helped him. Everybody abouthere speaks of his kindness to him."
3.  "Thank you. We have certainly been favoured with extraordinaryluck during this inquiry, and it will be entirely our own fault ifwe do not succeed in clearing the matter up. With your permission, Mr.Holder, I shall now continue my investigations outside."He went alone, at his own request, for he explained that anyunnecessary footmarks might make his task more difficult. For anhour or more he was at work, returning at last with his feet heavywith snow and his features as inscrutable as ever.
4、  "Just one hint to you, Lastrade," drawled Holmes before his rivalvanished; "I will tell you the true solution of the matter. Lady St.Simon is a myth. There is not, and there never has been, any suchperson."
5、  "Quite so," I answered with some mystification. "And on B row.""That is most satisfactory. What else did he tell you?""He showed me his strong-room, as he called it. It really is astrong-room- like a bank- with iron door and shutter- burglar-proof,as he claimed. Whoever, the woman seems to have had a duplicate key,and between them they had carried off some seven thousand pounds worthof cash and securities."

      "That is the problem which we have to solve," Holmes answered,"and for my part I shall set about it by presuming that my reasoningis correct and that a double murder has been committed. One of theseears is a woman's, small, finely formed, and pierced for an earring.The other is a man's, sun-burned, discoloured, and also pierced for anearring. These two people are presumably dead, or we should have heardtheir story before now. To-day is Friday. The packet was posted onThursday morning. The tragedy, then, occurred on Wednesday or Tuesday,or earlier. If the two people were murdered, who but their murdererwould have sent this sign of his work to Miss Cushing? We may takeit that the sender of the packet is the man whom we want. But hemust have some strong reason for sending Miss Cushing this packet.What reason then? It must have been to tell her that the deed wasdone! or to pain her, perhaps. But in that case she knows who it is.Does she know? I doubt it. If she knew, why should she call the policein? She might have buried the ears, and no one would have been thewiser. That is what she would have done if she had wished to shieldthe criminal. But if she does not wish to shield him she would givehis name. There is a tangle here which needs straightening out." Hehad been talking in a high, quick voice, staring blankly up over thegarden fence, but now he sprang briskly to his feet and walked towardsthe house.

       "We had a bit of barney right away, and I should have walked back tothe station if I had not felt that it might be playing his game for meto do so. I was shown straight into his study, and there I foundhim, a huge, bow-backed man with a smoky skin and a straggling graybeard, seated behind his littered desk. A red-veined nose jutted outlike a vulture's beak, and two fierce gray eyes glared at me fromunder tufted brows. I could understand now why Godfrey seldom spoke ofhis father.

    {  Together we stole down to the road and crept across to the door ofthe inn. The bicycle still leaned against the wall. Holmes struck amatch and held it to the back wheel, and I heard him chuckle as thelight fell upon a patched Dunlop tyre. Up above us was the lightedwindow.
