1.【址:a g 9 559⒐ v i p】1  "When we were taking coffee in the drawing-room that night afterdinner, I told Arthur and Mary my experience, and of the precioustreasure which we had under our roof, suppressing only the name ofmy client. Lucy Parr, who had brought in the coffee, had, I am sure,left the room; but I cannot swear that the door was closed. Mary andArthur were much interested and wished to see the famous coronet,but I thought it better not to disturb it.
2.  "And who is Miss Marie Devine?"
3.  The inspector examined the pipe with interest. "One of ourofficers mentioned the smell of gas," said he, "but of course thewindow and door were open then, and the paint- or some of it- wasalready about. He had begun the work of painting the day before,according to his story. But what next, Mr. Holmes?"
4.  Mr. Sherlock Holmes listened with attention to the long report whichI was able to present to him that evening, but it did not elicitthat word of curt praise which I had hoped for and should have valued.On the contrary, his austere face was even more severe than usual ashe commented upon the things that I had done and the things that I hadnot.
5.  "I trust your judgment."
6.  "'I can promise you the one, but not the other,' he snarled, andso turned his rounded back upon me and went peering and blinking outof the room.


1.  . M . ERE .. E SL . NE.
2.  eccentricities. It was only age which stood in the way."About this time a little mystery suddenly clouded the normalroutine of the professor's life. He did what he had never done before.He left home and gave no indication where he was going. He was awaya fortnight and returned looking rather travel-worn. He made noallusion to where he had been, although he was usually the frankest ofmen. It chanced, however, that our client here, Mr. Bennett,received a letter from a fellow-student in Prague, who said that hewas glad to have seen Professor Presbury there, although he had notbeen able to talk to him. Only in this way did his own household learnwhere he had been.
3.  Phelps thrust away the precious document into the innermost pocketof his coat.
4.  "He had described his household to me before I went there. Helived with a faithful servant, a countryman of his own, who lookedafter all his needs. This fellow could speak English and did hishousekeeping for him. Then there was a wonderful cook, he said, ahalf-breed whom he had picked up in his travels, who could serve anexcellent dinner. I remember that he remarked what a queer householdit was to find in the heart of Surrey, and that I agreed with him,though it has proved a good deal queerer than I thought."I drove to the place- about two miles on the south side of Esher.The house was a fair-sized one, standing back from the road, with acurving drive which was banked with high evergreen shrubs. It was anold, tumble-down building in a crazy state of disrepair. When the trappulled up on the grass-grown drive in front of the blotched andweather-stained door, I had doubts as to my wisdom in visiting a manwhom I knew so slightly. He opened the door himself, however, andgreeted me with a great show of cordiality. I was handed over to themanservant a melancholy, swarthy individual, who led the way, my bagin his hand, to my bedroom. The whole place was depressing. Our dinnerwas tete-a-tete, and though my host did his best to be entertaining,his thoughts seemed to continually wander, and he talked so vaguelyand wildly that I could hardly understand him. He continuallydrummed his fingers on the table, gnawed his nails, and gave othersigns of nervous impatience. The dinner itself was neither well servednor well cooked, and the gloomy presence of the taciturn servant didnot help to enliven us. I can assure you that many times in the courseof the evening I wished that I could invent some excuse which wouldtake me back to Lee.
5.  "There is but one thing to do. It must be done at once. Youmust put this piece of paper which you have shown us into thebrass box which you have described. You must also put in a noteto say that all the other papers were burned by your uncle, andthat this is the only one which remains. You must assert that insuch words as will carry conviction with them. Having done this,you must at once put the box out upon the sundial, as directed.Do you understand?"
6.  "Now I'll tell you the queerest part of the whole story. I hadhardly got outside the hut when I heard someone coming, and I hidamong the bushes. A man came slinking along, went into the hut, gave acry as if he had seen a ghost, and legged it as hard as he could rununtil he was out of sight. Who he was or what he wanted is more than Ican tell. For my part I walked ten miles, got a train at TunbridgeWells, and so reached London, and no one the wiser.


1.  "And yet you have sent for me?"
2.  "The glass still keeps very high," he remarked as he sat down. "Itis of importance that it should not rain before we are able to go overthe ground. On the other hand, a man should be at his very best andkeenest for such nice work as that, and I did not wish to do it whenfagged by a long journey. I have seen young McCarthy."
3.  "Yes, indeed, Holmes."
4.  "I wish you to understand, in the first place, that I am notemployed by Lord Mount-James, and that my sympathies in this matterare entirely against that nobleman. When a man is lost it is my dutyto ascertain his fate, but having done so the matter ends so far asI am concerned, and so long as there is nothing criminal I am muchmore anxious to hush up private scandals than to give thempublicity. If, as I imagine, there is no breach of the law in thismatter, you can absolutely depend upon my discretion and mycooperation in keeping the facts out of the papers."
5.   outstretched palm of the other one. He had always laughed at whathe called my cock-and-bull story about the colonel, but he lookedvery scared and puzzled now that the same thing had come uponhimself.
6.  "I am entirely at your service," said Sherlock Holmes, ringing thebell. "You will show these gentlemen out, Mrs. Hudson, and kindly sendthe boy with this telegram. He is to pay a five-shilling reply."We sat for some time in silence after our visitors had left.Holmes smoked hard, with his brows drawn down over his keen eyes,and his head thrust forward in the eager way characteristic of theman.


1.  "I must explain to you, Mr. Holmes, that to-morrow is the firstday of the examination for the Fortescue Scholarship. I am one ofthe examiners. My subject is Greek, and the first of the papersconsists of a large passage of Greek translation which the candidatehas not seen. This passage is printed on the examination paper, and itwould naturally be an immense advantage if the candidate could prepareit in advance. For this reason, great care is taken to keep thepaper secret.
2.  "It is really very good of you to come, Watson," said he. "Itmakes a considerable difference to me, having someone with me onwhom I can thoroughly rely. Local aid is always either worthless orelse biassed. If you will keep the two corner seats I shall get thetickets."
3.  "This place, Deep Dene House, is a big modern villa of staringbrick, standing back in its own grounds, with a laurel-clumped lawn infront of it. To the right and some distance back from the road was thetimber-yard which had been the scene of the fire. Here's a roughplan on a leaf of my notebook. This window on the left is the onewhich opens into Oldacre's room. You can look into it from the road,you see. That is about the only bit of consolation I have hadto-day. Lestrade was not there, but his head constable did thehonours. They had just found a great treasure trove. They had spentthe morning raking among the ashes of the burned wood-pile, andbesides the charred organic remains they had secured severaldiscoloured metal discs. I examined them with care, and there was nodoubt that they were trouser buttons. I even distinguished that one ofthem was marked with the name of `Hyams,' who was Oldacres tailor. Ithen worked the lawn very carefully for signs and traces, but thisdrought has made everything as hard as iron. Nothing was to be seensave that some body or bundle had been dragged through a low privethedge which is in a line with the wood-pile. All that, of course, fitsin with the official theory. I crawled about the lawn with an Augustsun on my back, but I got up at the end of an hour no wiser thanbefore.
4、  "Well, from that time Sarah hated me with her whole heart andsoul, and she is a woman who can hate, too. I was a fool to let her goon biding with us- a besotted fool- but I never said a word to Mary,for I knew it would grieve her. Things went on much as before, butafter a time I began to find that there was a bit of a change inMary herself. She had always been so trusting and so innocent, but nowshe became queer and suspicious, wanting to know where I had beenand what I had been doing, and whom my letters were from, and what Ihad in my pockets, and a thousand such follies. Day by day she grewqueerer and more irritable, and we had ceaseless rows about nothing. Iwas fairly puzzled by it all. Sarah avoided me now, but she and Marywere just inseparable. I can see now how she was plotting and schemingand poisoning my wife's mind against me, but I was such a blind beetlethat I could not understand it at the time. Then I broke my blueribbon and began to drink again, but I think I should not have done itif Mary had been the same as ever. She had some reason to be disgustedwith me now, and the gap between us began to be wider and wider. Andthen this Alec Fairbairn chipped in, and things became a thousandtimes blacker.
5、  "Perhaps I have. But I do not care to discuss it until there issomething more solid to discuss."

      "It was a pitch-dark night when my husband and I went down, as wasour custom, to feed the beast. We carried with us the raw meat in azinc pail. Leonardo was waiting at the corner of the big van whichwe should have to pass before we reached the cage. He was too slow,and we walked past him before he could strike, but he followed us ontiptoe and I heard the crash as the club smashed my husband's skull.My heart leaped with joy at the sound. I sprang forward, and I undidthe catch which held the door of the great lion's cage."And then the terrible thing happened. You may have heard howquick these creatures are to scent human blood, and how it excitesthem. Some strange instinct had told the creature in one instantthat a human being had been slain. As I slipped the bars it bouncedout and was on me in an instant. Leonardo could have saved me. If hehad rushed forward and struck the beast with his club he might havecowed it. But the man lost his nerve. I heard him shout in his terror,and then I saw him turn and fly. At the same instant the teeth ofthe lion met in my face. Its hot, filthy breath had already poisonedme and I was hardly conscious of pain. With the palms of my hands Itried to push the great steaming, blood-stained jaws away from me, andI screamed for help. I was conscious that the camp was stirring, andthen dimly I remembered a group of men. Leonardo, Griggs, andothers, dragging me from under the creature's paws. That was my lastmemory, Mr. Holmes, for many a weary month. When I came to myselfand saw myself in the mirror, I cursed that lion- oh, how I cursedhim!- not because he had torn away my beauty but because he had nottorn away my life. I had but one desire, Mr. Holmes, and I hadenough money to gratify it. It was that I should cover myself sothat my poor face should be seen by none, and that I should dwellwhere none whom I had ever known should find me. That was all that wasleft to me to do- and that is what I have done. A poor wounded beastthat has crawled into its hole to die- that is the end of EugeniaRonder."

    {  "Or his lust diary. Call it what you will. The moment the woman toldus of it I realized what a tremendous weapon was there if we could butlay our hands on it. I said nothing at the time to indicate mythoughts, for this woman might have given it away. But I broodedover it. Then this assault upon me gave me the chance of letting theBaron think that no precautions need be taken against me. That was allto the good. I would have waited a little longer, but his visit toAmerica forced my hand. He would never have left so compromising adocument behind him. Therefore we had to act at once. Burglary atnight is impossible. He takes precautions. But there was a chance inthe evening if I could only be sure that his attention was engaged.That was where you and your blue saucer came in. But I had to besure of the position of the book, and I knew I had only a fewminutes in which to act, for my time was limited by your knowledgeof Chinese pottery. Therefore I gathered the girl up at the lastmoment. How could I guess what the little packet was that shecarried so carefully under her cloak? I thought she had comealtogether on my business, but it seems she had some of her own.""He guessed I came from you."

      "You did, Doctor, but none the less you must come round to myview, for otherwise I shall keep on piling fact upon fact on youuntil your reason breaks down under them and acknowledges me to beright. Now, Mr. Jabez Wilson here has been good enough to callupon me this morning, and to begin a narrative which promises tobe one of the most singular which I have listened to for sometime. You have heard me remark that the strangest and most uniquethings are very often connected not with the larger but with thesmaller crimes, and occasionally, indeed, where there is room fordoubt whether any positive crime has been committed. As far as Ihave heard it is impossible for me to say whether the present caseis an instance of crime or not, but the course of events iscertainly among the most singular that I have ever listened to.Perhaps, Mr. Wilson, you would have the great kindness torecommence your narrative. I ask you not merely because my friendDr. Watson has not heard the opening part but also because thepeculiar nature of the story makes me anxious to have everypossible detail from your lips. As a rule, when I have heard someslight indication of the course of events, I am able to guidemyself by the thousands of other similar cases which occur to mymemory. In the present instance I am forced to admit that thefacts are, to the best of my belief, unique."
