1.【址:a g 9 559⒐ v i p】1  "Pray do so."
2.  "I suspect myself."
3.  "Put your hat and stick on the side-table. Thank you! Pray take aseat. Would you care to put your revolver out also? Oh, very good,if you prefer to sit upon it. Your visit is really most opportune, forI wanted badly to have a few minutes' chat with you."
4.  "Before examining the room I cross-questioned the servants, but onlysucceeded in eliciting the facts which I have already stated. Oneother detail of interest was remembered by Jane Stewart, thehousemaid. You will remember that on hearing the sound of thequarrel she descended and returned with the other servants. On thatfirst occasion, when she was alone, she says that the voices of hermaster and mistress were sunk so low that she could hardly hearanything, and judged by their tones rather than their words thatthey had fallen out. On my pressing her, however, she rememberedthat she heard the word David uttered twice by the lady. The pointis of the utmost importance as guiding us towards the reason of thesudden quarrel. The colonel's name, you remember, was James."There was one thing in the case which had made the deepestimpression both upon the servants and the police. This was thecontortion of the colonel's face. It had set, according to theiraccount, into the most dreadful expression of fear and horror whicha human countenance is capable of assuming. More than one personfainted at the mere sight of him, so terrible was the effect. It wasquite certain that he had foreseen his fate, and that it had causedhim the utmost horror. This, of course, fitted in well enough with thepolice theory, if the colonel could have seen his wife making amurderous attack upon him. Nor was the fact of the wound being onthe back of his head a fatal objection to this, as he might haveturned to avoid the blow. No information could be got from the ladyherself, who was temporarily insane from an acute attack ofbrain-fever.
5.  "None, Holmes."
6.  "I started off, Mr. Holmes, but when I got to that address itwas a manufactory of artificial knee-caps, and no one in it hadever heard of either Mr. William Morris or Mr. Duncan Ross.""And what did you do then?" asked Holmes.


2.  "But what other is there?" cried the banker with a gesture ofdespair. "If his motives were innocent, why does he not explain them?""It is our task to find that out," replied Holmes; "so now, if youplease, Mr. Holder, we will set off for Streatham together, and devotean hour to glancing a little more closely into details."My friend insisted upon my accompanying them in their expedition,which I was eager enough to do, for my curiosity and sympathy weredeeply stirred by the story to which we had listened. I confess thatthe guilt of the banker's son appeared to me to be as obvious as itdid to his unhappy father, but still I had such faith in Holmes'sjudgment that I felt that there must be some grounds for hope aslong as he was dissatisfied with the accepted explanation. He hardlyspoke a word the whole way out to the southern suburb, but sat withhis chin upon his breast and his hat drawn over his eyes, sunk inthe deepest thought. Our client appeared to have taken fresh heartat the little glimpse of hope which had been presented to him, andhe even broke into a desultory chat with me over his business affairs.A short railway journey and a shorter walk brought us to Fairbank, themodest residence of the great financier.
4.  "It is obvious. And now, you see, I had narrowed the field downconsiderably. The possession of a gray garment was a third pointwhich, granting the son's statement to be correct, was a certainty. Wehave come now out of mere vagueness to the definite conception of anAustralian from Ballarat with a gray cloak."
5.  "That is it on the dressing-table."
6.  "'That you may get away, or perhaps that you may conceal what youhave stolen; said I. And then, realizing the dreadful position inwhich I was placed, I implored him to remember that not only my honourbut that of one who was far greater than I was at stake; and that hethreatened to raise a scandal which would convulse the nation. Hemight avert it all if he would but tell me what he had done with thethree missing stones.


1.  "His Grace is never very friendly with anyone. He is completelyimmersed in large public questions, and is rather inaccessible toall ordinary emotions. But he was always kind to the boy in his ownway."
2.  "I do not blame you for feeling it. I should blame you if youexpressed it, since this young lady was in a sense under yourprotection."
3.  "You left them, then, without any premonition of evil?""None at all."
4.  "Excellent!" cried Holmes, clapping the inspector on the back."You've seen the postman. It is a pleasure to work with you. Well,here is the lodge, and if you will come up, Colonel, I will show youthe scene of the crime."
5.   "How did you trace it, then?"


1.  "Yes, I am all that, Mr. Holmes; and, in addition, I am the mostunfortunate man at this moment in London. For heaven's sake, don'tabandon me, Mr. Holmes! If they come to arrest me before I havefinished my story, make them give me time, so that I may tell youthe whole truth. I could go to jail happy if I knew that you wereworking for me outside."
2.  "'You're only wasting your time, sir, and every minute now is ofimportance,' cried the commissionaire; 'take my word for it that myold woman has nothing to do with it and come down to the other endof the street. Well, if you won't, I will.' And with that he rashedoff in the other direction.
3.  "How hard you are!" she cried. "May I tell you the whole story?""I fancy I could tell it to you."
4、  "She was talking to the woman behind the counter. I entered as well.'It is late,' I heard her say, or words to that effect. The womanwas excusing herself. 'It should be there before now,' she answered.'It took longer, being out of the ordinary.' They both stopped andlooked at me, so I asked some question and then left the shop.""You did excellently well. What happened next?"
5、  The lady stared in amazement.

      For half an hour it seemed that we were. What with actualsuffocation, and what with the poisonous fumes of the chloroform,the Lady Frances seemed to have passed the last point of recall. Andthen, at last, with artificial respiration, with injected ether,with every device that science could suggest, some flutter of life,some quiver of the eyelids, some dimming of a mirror, spoke of theslowly returning life. A cab had driven up, and Holmes, parting theblind, looked out at it. "Here is Lestrade with his warrant," said he."He will find that his birds have flown. And here," he added as aheavy step hurried along the passage, "is someone who has a betterright to nurse this lady than we have. Good morning, Mr. Green; Ithink that the sooner we can move the Lady Frances the better.Meanwhile, the funeral may proceed, and the poor old woman who stilllies in that coffin may go to her last resting-place alone.""Should you care to add the case to your annals, my dear Watson,"said Holmes that evening, "it can only be as an example of thattemporary eclipse to which even the best-balanced mind may be exposed.Such slips are common to all mortals, and the greatest is he who canrecognize and repair them. To this modified credit I may, perhaps,make some claim. My night was haunted by the thought that somewherea clue, a strange sentence, a curious observation, had come under mynotice and had been too easily dismissed. Then, suddenly, in thegray of the morning, the words came back to me. It was the remark ofthe undertaker's wife, as reported by Philip Green. She had said,'It should be there before now. It took longer, being out of theordinary.' It was the coffin of which she spoke. It had been out ofthe ordinary. That could only mean that it had been made to somespecial measurement. But why? Why? Then in an instant I remembered thedeep sides, and the little wasted figure at the bottom. Why so large acoffin for so small a body? To leave room for another body. Both wouldbe buried under the one certificate. It had all been so clear, if onlymy own sight had not been dimmed. At eight the Lady Frances would beburied. Our one chance was to stop the coffin before it left thehouse.

    {  "Well," said he, curtly, "you are nearly half an hour late."So this was the explanation of the unlocked door and of thenocturnal vigil of Milverton. There was the gentle rustle of a woman'sdress. I had closed the slit between the curtains as Milverton'sface had turned in our direction, but now I ventured very carefully toopen it once more. He had resumed his seat, the cigar still projectingat an insolent angle from the corner of his mouth. In front of him, inthe full glare of the electric light, there stood a tall, slim, darkwoman, a veil over her face, a mantle drawn round her chin. Her breathcame quick and fast, and every inch of the lithe figure wasquivering with strong emotion.

      "I live at Torrington Lodge, Blackheath, with my parents, Mr.Holmes, but last night, having to do business very late with Mr. JonasOldacre, I stayed at an hotel in Norwood, and came to my business fromthere. I knew nothing of this affair until I was in the train, whenI read what you have just heard. I at once saw the horrible dangerof my position, and I hurried to put the case into your hands. Ihave no doubt that I should have been arrested either at my cityoffice or at my home. A man followed me from London Bridge Station,and I have no doubt- Great heaven! what is that?"}

      "Is such as we might expect. It ran, if I remember right,`sent the pips to A, B, and C'--that is, sent the society'swarning to them. Then there are successive entries that A and Bcleared, or left the country, and finally that C was visited,with, I fear, a sinister result for C. Well, I think, Doctor,that we may let some light into this dark place, and I believethat the only chance young Openshaw has in the meantime is to dowhat I have told him. There is nothing more to be said or to bedone to-night, so hand me over my violin and let us try to forgetfor half an hour the miserable weather and the still moremiserable ways of our fellowmen."
