    He shrugged his shoulders.

   "Splendid, Holmes! You have got it!"

   Holmes did not answer. His pale, eager face had suddenly assumedthat tense, far-away expression which I had learned to associatewith the supreme manifestations of his genius. So evident was thecrisis in his mind that none of us dared to speak, and we sat,barrister, prisoner, and myself, watching him in a concentrated andabsorbed silence. Suddenly he sprang from his chair, vibrating withnervous energy and the pressing need for action.


    "Each time that I saw it I was some distance away from it, so thatit is impossible for me to say."

   "No doubt it was foolish of me to threaten a brave man likeyourself."

    "I expect the old gentleman has been putting two and twotogether," said Holmes as we walked hotelward. "He struck me as havinga particularly clear and logical brain from the little I saw of him.Explosive, no doubt, but then from his point of view he hassomething to explode about if detectives are put on his track and hesuspects his own household of doing it. I rather fancy that friendBennett is in for an uncomfortable time."

   "'And you can come up to-morrow evening at seven and let me know howyou are getting on. Don't overwork yourself. A couple of hours atDay's Music Hall in the evening would do you no harm after yourlabours.' He laughed as he spoke, and I saw with a thrill that hissecond tooth upon the left-hand side had been very badly stuffedwith gold."

    "By Jove, Mr. Holmes, I think you have hit it."

<  It is not reasonable to suppose that every one of these cases gaveHolmes the opportunity of showing those curious gifts of instinctand observation which I have endeavoured to set fourth in thesememoirs. Sometimes he had with much effort to pick the fruit,sometimes it fell easily into his lap. But the most terrible humantragedies were often involved in those cases which brought him thefewest personal opportunities, and it is one of these which I nowdesire to record. In telling it, I have made a slight change of nameand place, but otherwise the facts are as stated.   I may have commented upon my friend's power of mental detachment,but never have I wondered at it more than upon that spring morningin Cornwall when for two hours he discoursed upon celts, arrowheads,and shards, as lightly as if no sinister mystery were waiting forhis solution. It was not until we had returned in the afternoon to ourcottage that we found a visitor awaiting us, who soon brought ourminds back to the matter in hand. Neither of us needed to be toldwho that visitor was. The huge body, the craggy and deeply seamed facewith the fierce eyes and hawk-like nose, the grizzled hair whichnearly brushed our cottage ceiling, the beard- golden at the fringesand white near the lips, save for the nicotine stain from hisperpetual cigar- all these were as well known in London as inAfrica, and could only be associated with the tremendous personalityof Dr. Leon Sterndale, the great lion-hunter and explorer.We had heard of his presence in the district and had once or twicecaught sight of his tall figure upon the moorland paths. He made noadvances to us, however, nor would we have dreamed of doing so to him,as it was well known that it was his love of seclusion which causedhim to spend the greater part of the intervals between his journeys ina small bungalow buried in the lonely wood of Beauchamp Arriance.Here, amid his books and his maps, he lived an absolutely lonely life,attending to his own simple wants and paying little apparent heed tothe affairs of his neighbours. It was a surprise to me, therefore,to hear him asking Holmes in an eager voice whether he had made anyadvance in his reconstruction of this mysterious episode. "Thecounty police are utterly at fault," said he, "but perhaps yourwider experience has suggested some conceivable explanation. My onlyclaim to being taken into your confidence is that during my manyresidences here I have come to know this family of Tregennis verywell- indeed, upon my Cornish mother's side I could call them cousins-and their strange fate has naturally been a great shock to me. I maytell you that I had got as far as Plymouth upon my way to Africa,but the news reached me this morning, and I came straight back againto help in the inquiry."

    "Precisely. You allude to my attempt to recover the IreneAdler papers, to the singular case of Miss Mary Sutherland, and tothe adventure of the man with the twisted lip. Well, I have nodoubt that this small matter will fall into the same innocentcategory. You know Peterson, the commissionaire?"


<  "Such a remark is unworthy of you, Holmes. It shows me veryclearly the state of your own nerves. But if you have no confidence inme I would not intrude my services. Let me bring Sir Jasper Meek orPenrose Fisher, or any of the best men in London. But someone you musthave, and that is final. If you think that I am going to stand hereand see you die without either helping you myself or bringing anyoneelse to help you, then you have mistaken your man."   "Rather fine, Watson, is it not?" said he. "There are points in itwhich please me. I think that you will agree with me that an interviewwith Mr. Arthur Harry Pinner in the temporary offices of theFranco-Midland Hardware Company, limited, would be a ratherinteresting experience for both of us."

    The portly client puffed out his chest with an appearance ofsome little pride and pulled a dirty and wrinkled newspaper fromthe inside pocket of his greatcoat. As he glanced down theadvertisement column, with his head thrust forward and the paperflattened out upon his knee, I took a good look at the man andendeavoured, after the fashion of my companion, to read theindications which might be presented by his dress or appearance.I did not gain very much, however, by my inspection. Ourvisitor bore every mark of being an average commonplace Britishtradesman, obese, pompous, and slow. He wore rather baggy grayshepherd's check trousers, a not over-clean black frock-coat,unbuttoned in the front, and a drab waistcoat with a heavy brassyAlbert chain, and a square pierced bit of metal dangling down asan ornament. A frayed top-hat and a faded brown overcoat with awrinkled velvet collar lay upon a chair beside him. Altogether,look as I would, there was nothing remarkable about the man savehis blazing red head, and the expression of extreme chagrin anddiscontent upon his features.
