1.【址:a g 9 559⒐ v i p】1  "Come, Watson, come!" he cried.
2.  But that work met with an annoying interruption. I had hardlyswallowed my early cup of tea and was starting for the beach when Ihad a call from Inspector Bardle of the Sussex Constabulary- a steady,solid, bovine man with thoughtful eyes, which looked at me now witha very troubled expression.
3.  "Mrs. Oakshott, 117, Brixton Road--249," read Holmes.
4.  "Good heavens!" cried the colonel, laughing, "do you mean to say allour sympathy was wasted and your fit an imposture?"
5.  It was evidently taken by a snapshot from a small camera. Itrepresented an alert, sharp-featured simian man, with thick eyebrowsand a very peculiar projection of the lower part of the face, like themuzzle of a baboon.
6.  "Well, you can imagine how hard it was to settle down to arduouswork at L2 a week when I knew that I could earn as much in a day bysmearing my face with a little paint, laying my cap on the ground, andsitting still. It was a long fight between my pride and the money, butthe dollars won at last, and I threw up reporting and sat day afterday in the corner which I had first chosen, inspiring pity by myghastly face and filling my pockets with coppers. Only one man knew mysecret. He was the keeper of a low den in which I used to lodge inSwandam Lane, where I could every morning emerge as a squalid beggarand in the evenings transform myself into a well-dressed man abouttown. This fellow, a lascar, was well paid by me for his rooms, sothat I knew that my secret was safe in his possession.


1.  "It is no reflection upon your professional knowledge," said he,"for I believe that, save for one sample in a laboratory at Buda,there is no other specimen in Europe. It has not yet found its wayeither into the pharmacopoeia or into the literature of toxicology.The root is shaped like a foot, half human, half goatlike; hence thefanciful name given by a botanical missionary. It is used as an ordealpoison by the medicine-men in certain districts of West Africa andis kept as a secret among them. This particular specimen I obtainedunder very extraordinary circumstances in the Ubangi country." Heopened the paper as he spoke and disclosed a heap of reddish-brown,snuff-like powder.
2.  "And that is-"
3.  "So would you, if a flock of strangers came in on you when youwere preparing for an examination next day, and every moment was ofvalue. No, I see nothing in that. Pencils, too, and knives- all wassatisfactory. But that fellow does puzzle me."
4.  "What was her explanation?"
5.  "Have you, though? You haven't been slow on the job if you onlystarted this morning. Maybe dear Adelbert has met his match this time.The outer study is the one with the Chinese crockery in it- bigglass cupboard between the windows. Then behind his desk is the doorthat leads to the inner study- a small room where he keeps pipersand things."
6.  "What I cannot understand," said I, "is why they should havespared you when they found you lying fainting in the garden. Perhapsthe villain was softened by the woman's entreaties."


1.  "Tell me," broke in the engineer, "is Dr. Becher a German, verythin, with a long, sharp nose?"
2.  "'Five hundred a year!' I shouted.
3.  "No, but this horrible man confessed to having been there, and thelascar was at the foot of the stairs."
4.  His words were cut short by a sudden scream of "Help! Help! Murder!"With a thrill I recognized the voice as that of my friend. I rushedmadly from the room on to the landing. The cries, which had sunkdown into a hoarse, inarticulate shouting, came from the room which wehad first visited. I dashed in, and on into the dressing-roombeyond. The two Cunninghams were bending over the prostrate figureof Sherlock Holmes, the younger clutching his throat with bothhands, while the elder seemed to be twisting one of his wrists. Inan instant the three of us had torn them away from him, and Holmesstaggered to his feet, very pale and evidently greatly exhausted."Arrest these men, Inspector," he gasped.
5.   "I do my neighbour's when he goes. He is always ready to work offthe debt."
6.  "'Well, I took to my heels, and I ran after the cab. I had a heavyoak stick in my hand, and I tell you I saw red from the first, butas I ran I got cunning, too, and hung back a little to see themwithout being seen. They pulled up soon at the railway station.There was a good crowd round the booking-office, so I got quiteclose to them without being seen. They took tickets for NewBrighton. So did I, but I got in three carriages behind them. Whenwe reached it they walked along the Parade, and I was never morethan a hundred yards from them. At last I saw them hire a boat andstart for a row, for it was a very hot day, and they thought, nodoubt, that it would be cooler on the water.


1.  "You have not unbacked them? How long have you had them?""They arrived last week."
2.  "Quite so. There you are. And underneath?"
3.  "I think now," said Gregson, rising, "we had best put this matterinto an official shape. You will come round with us to the station,Mr. Scott Eccles, and let us have your statement in writing.""Certainly, I will come at once. But I retain your services, Mr.Holmes. I desire you to spare no expense and no pains to get at thetruth."
4、  "To an end?"
5、  Phelps thrust away the precious document into the innermost pocketof his coat.

      "I suppose that everyone finds his first independent start inbusiness a dreary experience. To me it has been exceptionally so.During two years I have had three consultations and one small job, andthat is absolutely all that my profession has brought me. My grosstakings amount to L27 10s. Every day, from nine in the morning untilfour in the afternoon, I waited in my little den, until at last: myheart began to sink, and I came to believe that I should never haveany practice at all.

    {  Our proceedings of that first morning did little to advance theinvestigation. It was marked, however, at the outset by an incidentwhich left the most sinister impression upon my mind. The approachto the spot at which the tragedy occurred is down a narrow, winding,country lane, While we made our way along it we heard the rattle ofa carriage coming towards us and stood aside to let it pass. As itdrove by us I caught a glimpse through the closed window of a horriblycontorted, grinning face glaring out at us. Those staring eyes andgnashing teeth flashed past us like a dreadful vision.

      The sun was setting and turning the rolling Hampshire moor into awonderful autumnal panorama. The sergeant, with many critical andincredulous glances, which showed his deep doubts of the sanity ofmy companion, lurched along beside us. As we approached the scene ofthe crime I could see that my friend under all his habitual coolnesswas in truth deeply agitated.
