1.【址:a g 9 559⒐ v i p】1  It was after five o'clock when Sherlock Holmes left me, but I had notime to be lonely, for within an hour there arrived a confectionersman with a very large flat box. This he unpacked with the help of ayouth whom he had brought with him, and presently, to my very greatastonishment, a quite epicurean little cold supper began to be laidout upon our humble lodging-house mahogany. There were a couple ofbrace of cold woodcock, a pheasant, a pate de foie gras pie with agroup of ancient and cobwebby bottles. Having laid out all theseluxuries, my two visitors vanished away, like the genii of the ArabianNights, with no explanation save that the things had been paid for andwere ordered to this address.
2.  "Exactly."
3.  "And I return with an excellent appetite. There can be noquestion, my dear Watson, of the value of exercise before breakfast.But I am prepared to bet that you will not guess the form that myexercise has taken."
4.  "I give you five minutes, Mr. Holmes."
6.  Ryder quivered with emotion. "Oh, sir," he cried, "can youtell me where it went to?"


1.  "By the way, Watson, I suppose you see it all clearly?""No, I can't say that I do. I only gather that we are going to seethe lady who is behind all this mischief."
2.  "Well, then, tell me who is behind you on this job."
3.  "Admirable, Watson! Admirable! You are the best of messengers.""He wished to return with me."
4.  "It was very sweet of you to come. Now, you must have some wineand water, and sit here comfortably and tell us all about it. Orshould you rather that I sent James off to bed?"
5.  "Where did you get it?" he groaned. "I did not know. I thought I hadlost it at the hotel."
6.  "Yes, indeed."


1.  Of all the problems which have been submitted to my friend, Mr.Sherlock Holmes, for solution during the years of our intimacy,there were only two which I was the means of introducing to hisnotice-that of Mr. Hatherley's thumb, and that of ColonelWarburton's madness. Of these the latter may have afforded a finerfield for an acute and original observer, but the other was so strangein its inception and so dramatic in its details that it may be themore worthy of being placed upon record, even if it gave my friendfewer openings for those deductive methods of reasoning by which heachieved such remarkable results. The story has, I believe, beentold more than once in the newspapers, but, like all suchnarratives, its effect is much less striking when set forth en bloc ina single half-column of print than when the facts slowly evolve beforeyour own eyes, and the mystery clears gradually away as each newdiscovery furnishes a step which leads on to the complete truth. Atthe time the circumstances made a deep impression upon me, and thelapse of two years has hardly served to weaken the effect.It was in the summer of '89, not long after my marriage, that theevents occurred which I am now about to summarize. I had returned tocivil practice and had finally abandoned Holmes in his Baker Streetrooms, although I continually visited him and occasionally evenpersuaded him to forego his Bohemian habits so far as to come andvisit us. My practice had steadily increased, and as I happened tolive at no very great distance from Paddington Station, I got a fewpatients from among the officials. One of these, whom I had cured of apainful and lingering disease, was never weary of advertising myvirtues and of endeavouring to send me on every sufferer over whomhe might have any influence.
2.  "Not very prepossessing externally, as you can see, but a heart ofgold, and devoted to the child."
3.  There were only four stationers of any consequences in the town, andat each Holmes produced his pencil chips, and bid high for aduplicate. All were agreed that one could be ordered, but that itwas not a usual size of pencil and that it was seldom kept in stock.My friend did not appear to be depressed by his failure, butshrugged his shoulders in half-humorous resignation.
4.  "You will tell me if you have any news to-morrow. No doubt youwill go to the prison to see James. Oh, if you do, Mr. Holmes, do tellhim that I know him to be innocent."
5.   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?"
6.  "'I implore you not to do this, Jack,' she cried. 'I swear that Iwill tell you everything some day, but nothing but misery can comeof it if you enter that cottage.' Then, as I tried to shake her off,she clung to me in a frenzy of entreaty.


1.  He had ceased to strike and was gazing up at the ventilator whensuddenly there broke from the silence of the night the most horriblecry to which I have ever listened. It swelled up louder and louder,a hoarse yell of pain and fear and anger all mingled in the onedreadful shriek. They say that away down in the village, and even inthe distant parsonage, that cry raised the sleepers from their beds.It struck cold to our hearts, and I stood gazing at Holmes, and heat me, until the last echoes of it had died away into the silence fromwhich it rose.
2.  "On the Tuesday, Peter Carey was in one of his blackest moods,flushed with drink and as savage as a dangerous wild beast. Heroamed about the house, and the women ran for it when they heard himcoming. Late in the evening, he went down to his own hut. About twoo'clock the following morning, his daughter, who slept with her windowopen, heard a most fearful yell from that direction, but it was nounusual thing for him to bawl and shout when he was in drink, so nonotice was taken. On rising at seven, one of the maids noticed thatthe door of the hut was open, but so great was the terror which theman caused that it was midday before anyone would venture down tosee what had become of him. Peeping into the open door, they saw asight which sent them flying, with white faces, into the village.Within an hour, I was on the spot and had taken over the case."Well, I have fairly steady nerves, as you know, Mr. Holmes, but Igive you my word, that I got a shake when I put my head into thatlittle house. It was droning like a harmonium with the flies andbluebottles, and the floor and walls were like a slaughter-house. Hehad called it a cabin, and a cabin it was, sure enough, for youwould have thought that you were in a ship. There was a bunk at oneend, a sea-chest, maps and charts, a picture of the Sea Unicorn, aline of logbooks on a shelf, all exactly as one would expect to findit in a captain's room. And there, in the middle of it, was the manhimself- his face twisted like a lost soul in torment, and his greatbrindled beard stuck upward in his agony. Right through his broadbreast a steel harpoon had been driven, and it had sunk deep intothe wood of the wall behind him. He was pinned like a beetle on acard. Of course, he was quite dead, and had been so from the instantthat he had uttered that last yell of agony.
3.  Hopkins looked surprised.
4、  "The most practical way of getting at it, in my opinion, is toidentify the dead man. There should be no difficulty about that.When we have found who he is and who his associates are, we shouldhave a good start in learning what he was doing in Pitt Street lastnight, and who it was who met him and killed him on the doorstep ofMr. Horace Harker. Don't you think so?"
5、  "Well, how do you explain it?"

      "Still a quarter of an hour," said he. "Very good, I shall wait."The butler had hardly closed the door behind him when Lady Hilda wasdown on her knees at Holmes's feet, her hands outstretched, herbeautiful face upturned and wet with her tears.

      Holmes held it out to me. "A soft revolver bullet, as youperceive, Watson. There's genius in that, for who would expect to findsuch a thing fired from an airgun? All right, Mrs. Hudson. I am muchobliged for your assistance. And now, Watson, let me see you in yourold seat once more, for there are several points which I should liketo discuss with you."

      "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.

       "But surely," said I, "the vampire was not necessarily a dead man? Aliving person might have the habit. I have read, for example, of theold sucking the blood of the young in order to retain their youth.""You are right, Watson. It mentions the legend in one of thesereferences. But are we to give serious attention to such things?This agency stands flat-footed upon the ground, and there it mustremain. The world is big enough for us. No ghosts need apply. I fearthat we cannot take Mr. Robert Ferguson very seriously. Possiblythis note may be from him and may throw some light upon what isworrying him."

      "I was recalled to myself by a frantic plucking at my wrist, and Ifound myself lying upon the stone floor of a narrow corridor, whilea woman bent over me and tugged at me with her left hand, while sheheld a candle in her right. It was the same good friend whosewarning I had so foolishly rejected.
