1.【址:a g 9 559⒐ v i p】1  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.
2.  "A confidential servant?"
3.  "He met me with the dog-cart at the station, and I saw at a glancethat the last two months had been very trying ones for him. He hadgrown thin and careworn, and had lost the loud, cheery manner forwhich he had been remarkable.
4.  "'Hampshire. Charming rural place. The Copper Beeches, five miles onthe far side of Winchester. It is the most lovely country, my dearyoung lady, and the dearest old country-house.'
5.  "What did they take?"
6.  His smile broadened.


1.  "Well, can you help us do so?"
2.  "The note is written upon ordinary cream-laid paper withoutwatermark. It is a quarter-sheet. The paper is cut off in two snipswith a short-bladed scissors. It has been folded over three timesand sealed with purple wax, put on hurriedly and pressed down withsome flat oval object. It is addressed to Mr. Garcia, WisteriaLodge. It says:
3.  The road in which we found ourselves as we turned round thecorner from the retired Saxe-Coburg Square presented as great acontrast to it as the front of a picture does to the back. It wasone of the main arteries which conveyed the traffic of the City tothe north and west. The roadway was blocked with the immensestream of commerce flowing in a double tide inward and outward,while the footpaths were black with the hurrying swarm ofpedestrians. It was difficult to realize as we looked at the lineof fine shops and stately business premises that they reallyabutted on the other side upon the faded and stagnant square whichwe had just quitted.
4.  "Well, then, tell me who is behind you on this job."
5.  "My father is dead, Mr. Holmes. He was James Smith, who conductedthe orchestra at the old Imperial Theatre. My mother and I were leftwithout a relation in the world except one uncle, Ralph Smith, whowent to Africa twenty-five years ago, and we have never had a wordfrom him since. When father died, we were left very poor, but oneday we were told that there was an advertisement in the Times,inquiring for our whereabouts. You can imagine how excited we were,for we thought that someone had left us a fortune. We went at onceto the lawyer whose name was given in the paper. There we, met twogentlemen, Mr. Carruthers and Mr. Woodley, who were home on a visitfrom South Africa. They said that my uncle was a friend of theirs,that he had died some months before in great poverty inJohannesburg, and that he had asked them with his last breath tohunt up his relations, and see that they were in no want. It seemedstrange to us that Uncle Ralph, who took no notice of us when he wasalive, should be so careful to look after us when he was dead, but Mr.Carruthers explained that the reason was that my uncle had justheard of the death of his brother, and so felt responsible for ourfate."
6.  "Good heavens!" cried Holmes. "I had totally forgotten him. Mydear Watson, I owe you a thousand apologies. To think that I shouldhave overlooked you! I need not introduce you to Mr. CulvertonSmith, since I understand that you met somewhat earlier in theevening. Have you the cab below? I will follow you when I amdressed, for I may be of some use at the station.


1.  He took a paper from his pocket, and, unwrapping it carefully, heexposed a charred fragment of bone.
2.  "But it must be late."
3.  "Who is he?" asked Mycroft eagerly.
4.  "It's this way, Mr. Holmes. As I have said, I am the skipper ofthe Rugger team of Cambridge 'Varsity, and Godfrey Staunton is my bestman. To-morrow we play Oxford. Yesterday we all came up, and wesettled at Bentley's private hotel. At ten o'clock I went round andsaw that all the fellows had gone to roost, for I believe in stricttraining and plenty of sleep to keep a team fit. I had a word or twowith Godfrey before he turned in. He seemed to me to be pale andbothered. I asked him what was the matter. He said he was all right-just a touch of headache. I bade him good-night and left him. Halfan hour later, the porter tells me that a rough looking man with abeard called with a note for Godfrey. He had not gone to bed, andthe note was taken to his room. Godfrey read it, and fell back in achair as if he had been pole-axed. The porter was so scared that hewas going to fetch me, but Godfrey stopped him, had a drink ofwater, and pulled himself together. Then he went downstairs, said afew words to the man who was waiting in the hall, and the two ofthem went off together. The last that the porter saw of them, theywere almost running down the street in the direction of the Strand.This morning Godfrey's room was empty, his bed had never been sleptin, and his things were all just as I had seen them the nightbefore. He had gone off at a moment's notice with this stranger, andno word has come from him since. I don't believe he will ever comeback. He was a sportsman, was Godfrey, down to his marrow, and hewouldn't have stopped his training and let in his skipper if it werenot for some cause that was too strong for him. No: I feel as if hewere gone for good, and we should never see him again."Sherlock Holmes listened with the deepest attention to this singularnarrative.

6.  "Yes, I sent wires from Woking station to every evening paper inLondon. This advertisement will appear in each of them."He handed over a sheet torn from a notebook. On it was scribbled inpencil:


1.  "`Why, I wonder at that, for you are eligible yourself for oneof the vacancies.'
2.  "I never smoke myself, so I think I should have observed it if therehad been any smell of tobacco. There was absolutely no clue of anykind. The only tangible fact was that the commissionaire's wife-Mrs.Tangey was the name-had hurried out of the place. He could give noexplanation save that it was about the time when the woman always wenthome. The policeman and I agreed that our best plan would be toseize the woman before she could get rid of the papers, presuming thatshe had them.
3.  "It is of the highest importance in the art of detection to beable to recognize, out of a number of facts, which are incidentaland which vital. Otherwise your energy and attention must bedissipated instead of being concentrated. Now, in this case therewas not the slightest doubt in my mind from the first that the keyof the whole matter must be looked for in the scrap of paper in thedead man's hand.
4、  "Neither do I," said the morose landlord.
5、  "Because the candle was not guttered."

       "Oh, yes, my dear Watson, I am perfectly satisfied. At the sametime, Stanley Hopkins's methods do not commend themselves to me. Iam disappointed in Stanley Hopkins. I had hoped for better things fromhim. One should always look for a possible alternative, and provideagainst it. It is the first rule of criminal investigation.""What, then, is the alternative?"

      The Boscombe Pool, which is a little reed-girt sheet of water somefifty yards across, is situated at the boundary between theHatherley Farm and the private park of the wealthy Mr. Turner. Abovethe woods which lined it upon the farther side we could see the red,jutting pinnacles which marked the site of the rich landowner'sdwelling. On the Hatherley side of the pool the woods grew very thick,and there was a narrow belt of sodden grass twenty paces acrossbetween the edge of the trees and the reeds which lined the lake.Lestrade showed us the exact spot at which the body had been found,and, indeed, so moist was the ground, that I could plainly see thetraces which had been left by the fall of the stricken man. To Holmes,as I could see by his eager face and peering eyes, very many otherthings were to be read upon the trampled grass. He ran round, like adog who is picking up a scent, and then turned upon my companion."What did you go into the pool for?" he asked.

      "Quite so, of course," said Holmes. "I should like to have a look atthe gentleman and see if I can make anything of his little game.What qualities have you, my friend, which would make your servicesso valuable? Or is it possible that-" He began biting his nails andstaring blankly out of the window, and we hardly drew another wordfrom him until we were in New Street.

    {  It was, then, in the spring of the year 1897 that Holmes's ironconstitution showed some symptoms of giving way in the face ofconstant hard work of a most exacting kind, aggravated, perhaps, byoccasional indiscretions of his own. In March of that year Dr. MooreAgar, of Harley Street, whose dramatic introduction to Holmes I maysome day recount, gave positive injunctions that the famous privateagent lay aside all his cases and surrender himself to complete restif he wished to avert an absolute breakdown. The state of his healthwas not a matter in which he himself took the faintest interest, forhis mental detachment was absolute, but he was induced at last, on thethreat of being permanently disqualified from work, to give himselfa complete change of scene and air. Thus it was that in the earlyspring of that year we found ourselves together in a small cottagenear Poldhu Bay, at the further extremity of the Cornish peninsula.It was a singular spot, and one peculiarly well suited to the grimhumour of my patient. From the windows of our little whitewashedhouse, which stood high upon a grassy headland, we looked down uponthe whole sinister semicircle of Mounts Bay, that old death trap ofsailing vessels, with its fringe of black cliffs and surge swept reefson which innumerable seamen have met their end. With a northerlybreeze it lies placid and sheltered, inviting the storm-tossed craftto tick into it for rest and protection.
