1.【址:a g 9 559⒐ v i p】1  The invalid sank back upon his cushions, tired out by this longrecital, while his nurse poured him out a glass of some stimulatingmedicine. Holmes sat silently, with his head thrown back and hiseyes closed, in an attitude which might seem listless to a stranger,but which I knew betokened the most intense self-absorption."Your statement has been so explicit," said he at last, "that youhave really left me very few questions to ask. There is one of thevery utmost importance, however. Did you tell anyone that you had thisspecial task to perform?"
2.  "Why?"
3.  He read the telegram aloud.
4.  Holmes bent over this grotesque frieze for some minutes, and thensuddenly sprang to his feet with an exclamation of surprise anddismay. His face was haggard with anxiety.
5.  "You have done well indeed!" cried Holmes with enthusiasm. "Now leadthe way, and we shall soon see the end of this black business."We passed up the stair, unlocked the door, followed on down apassage, and found ourselves in front of the barricade which MissHunter had described. Holmes cut the cord and removed the transversebar. Then he tried the various keys in the lock, but withoutsuccess. No sound came from within, and at the silence Holmes's faceclouded over.
6.  "I wrote my articles and thought little more of the matter until,some time later, I backed a bill for a friend and had a writ servedupon me for L25. I was at my wit's end where to get the money, but asudden idea came to me. I begged a fortnight's grace from thecreditor, asked for a holiday from my employers, and spent the time inbegging in the City under my disguise. In ten days I had the money andhad paid the debt.


1.  I glanced at my morning paper.
2.  "You like this weather?"
3.  "Now I have told you all. You have yourself supplied the rest. Idid, as you say, after a restless night, set off early from mycottage. I foresaw the difficulty of arousing him, so I gatheredsome gravel from the pile which you have mentioned, and I used it tothrow up to his window. He came down and admitted me through thewindow of the sitting-room. I laid his offence before him. I toldhim that I had come both as judge and executioner. The wretch sankinto a chair, paralyzed at the sight of my revolver. I lit the lamp,put the powder above it, and stood outside the window, ready tocarry out my threat to shoot him should he try to leave the room. Infive minutes he died. My God! how he died! But my heart was flint, forhe endured nothing which my innocent darling had not felt beforehim. There is my story, Mr. Holmes. Perhaps, if you loved a woman, youwould have done as much yourself. At any rate, I am in your hands. Youcan take what steps you like. As I have already said, there is noman living who can fear death less than I do."
4.  "I have seen the will of the deceased wife," said he. "Todetermine its exact meaning I have been obliged to work out thepresent prices of the investments with which it is concerned. Thetotal income, which at the time of the wife's death was little shortof L1000 is now, through the fall in agricultural prices, not morethan L750. Each daughter can claim an income of L250, in case ofmarriage. It is evident, therefore, that if both girls had married,this beauty would have had a mere pittance, while even one of themwould cripple him to a very serious extent. My morning's work hasnot been wasted, since it has proved that he has the very strongestmotives for standing in the way of anything of the sort. And now,Watson, this is too serious for dawdling, especially as the old man isaware that we are interesting ourselves in his affairs; so if youare ready, we shall call a cab and drive to Waterloo. I should be verymuch obliged if you would slip your revolver into your pocket. AnEley's No. 2 is an excellent argument with gentlemen who can twiststeel pokers into knots. That and a tooth-brush are, I think, all thatwe need."
5.  "Ah! you are piecing it together now. I hear that she is about tomarry the young Duke of Lomond, who might almost be her son. HisGrace's ma might overlook the age, but a big scandal would be adifferent matter, so it is imperative- Ah! here we are."It was one of the finest corner-houses of the West End. Amachine-like footman took up our cards and returned with word that thelady was not at home. "Then we shall wait until she is," said Holmescheerfully.
6.  "It has been touch and go with him," said I, "but he'll live now.Just open that window, and hand me the water carafe." I undid hiscollar, poured the cold water over his face, and raised and sank hisarms until he drew a long, natural breath. "It's only a question oftime now," said I as I turned away from him.


1.  The astonished detective read the note aloud. It ran as follows:"Wanted, a woman of good address, attired like a lady. She has aremarkably thick nose, with eyes which are set close upon eitherside of it. She has a puckered forehead, a peering expression, andprobably rounded shoulders. There are indications that she has hadrecourse to an optician at least twice during the last few months.As her glasses are of remarkable strength, and as opticians are notvery numerous, there should be no difficulty in tracing her."Holmes smiled at the astonishment of Hopkins, which must have beenreflected upon my features.
2.  "Owe!" He caught up a pen. "Name the sum, and I will pay it.""No, the debt is not to me. You owe a very humble apology to thatnoble lad, your son, who has carried himself in this matter as Ishould be proud to see my own son do, should I ever chance to haveone."
3.  "Glorious!" gasped our host. "That makes our third man.""I had opened up inquiries in Birmingham," said the American, "andmy agent there has sent me this advertisement from a local paper. Wemust bustle and put the thing through. I have written to this manand told him that you will see him in his office to-morrow afternoonat four o'clock."
4.  .
6.  "Yes, and a good colt, too. He carries all our money for the race,and all Sir Robert's into the Bargain. By the way"- he looked at uswith thoughtful eyes- "I suppose you ain't on the turf yourselves?""No, indeed. just two weary Londoners who badly need some goodBerkshire air."


1.  "Excellent! What more?"
2.  "Yes, his head was knocked in with his own poker."
3.  "I made up my mind that the fellow was in hiding in the house.When I paced one corridor and found it six feet shorter than thecorresponding one below, it was pretty clear where he was. I thoughthe had not the nerve to lie quiet before an alarm of fire. We could,of course, have gone in and taken him, but it amused me to make himreveal himself. Besides, I owed you a little mystification,Lestrade, for your chaff in the morning."
4、  "I feel it and admit it."
5、  "How long did he wait?"

      "I understand that William was usually in bed also at that hour?""Yes."

      "It was my father who was really concerned. Dawson had retired. Iwas only ten years of age at the time, but I was old enough to feelthe shame and horror of it all. It has always been said that my fatherstole all the securities and fled. It is not true. It was his beliefthat if he were given time in which to realize them, all would be welland every creditor paid in full. He started in his little yacht forNorway just before the warrant was issued for his arrest. I canremember that last night when he bade farewell to my mother. He leftus a list of the securities he was taking, and he swore that hewould come back with his honour cleared, and that none who had trustedhim would suffer. Well, no word was ever heard from him again. Boththe yacht and he vanished utterly. We believed, my mother and I,that he and it, with the securities that he had taken with him, wereat the bottom of the sea. We had a faithful friend, however, who isa business man, and it was he who discovered some time ago that someof the securities which my father had with him had reappeared on theLondon market. You can imagine our amazement. I spent months in tryingto trace them, and at last, after many doubtings and difficulties, Idiscovered that the original seller had been Captain Peter Carey,the owner of this hut.

      "I will do so myself," said Holmes, "in order to show that I havethe events in their due order. The professor, Watson, is a man ofEuropean reputation. His life has been academic. There has neverbeen a breath of scandal. He is a widower with one daughter, Edith. Heis, I gather, a man of very virile and positive, one might almostsay combative, character. So the matter stood until a very fewmonths ago.

      It was a long ten minutes before Grant Munro broke the silence,and when his answer came it was one of which I love to think. Helifted the little child, kissed her, and then, still carrying her,he held his other hand out to his wife and turned towards the door."We can talk it over more comfortably at home," said he. "I am not avery good man, Effie, but I think that I am a better one than you havegiven me credit for being."}

       "It is, of course, well known to you that in a successful bankingbusiness as much depends upon our being able to find remunerativeinvestments for our funds as upon our increasing our connection andthe number of our depositors. One of our most lucrative means oflaying out money is in the shape of loans, where the security isunimpeachable. We have done a good deal in this direction during thelast few years, and there are many noble families to whom we haveadvanced large sums upon the security of their pictures, libraries, orplate.

      "A printing press- a counterfeiter's outfit," said Holmes."Yes, sir," said our prisoner, staggering slowly to his feet andthen sinking into the chair. "The greatest counterfeiter London eversaw. That's Prescott's machine, and those bundles on the table are twothousand of Prescott's notes worth a hundred each and fit to passanywhere. Help yourselves, gentlemen. Call it a deal and let me beatit."
