休闲彩票【址:a g 9 559⒐ v i p】<  Shortly after my marriage I had bought a connection in thePaddington district. Old Mr. Farquhar, from whom I purchased it, hadat one time an excellent general practice; but his age, and anaffliction of the nature of St. Vitus's dance from which hesuffered, had very much thinned it. The public not unnaturally goes onthe principle that he who would heal others must himself be whole, andlooks askance at the curative powers of the man whose own case isbeyond the reach of his drugs. Thus as my predecessor weakened hispractice declined, until when I purchased it from him it had sunk fromtwelve hundred to little more than three hundred a year. I hadconfidence, however, in my own youth and energy and was convinced thatin a very few years the concern would be as flourishing as ever.For three months after taking over the practice I was kept veryclosely at work and saw little of my friend Sherlock Holmes, for I wastoo busy to visit Baker Street and he seldom went anywhere himselfsave upon professional business. I was surprised, therefore, when, onemorning in June, as I sat reading the British Medical Journal afterbreakfast, I heard a ring at the bell, followed by the high,somewhat strident tones of my old companion's voice.   "This was an unexpected piece of luck. My data were coming morequickly than I could have reasonably hoped.

    It was with a sinking heart that I reentered Holmes's bedroom. Forall that I knew the worst might have happened in my absence. To myenormous relief, he had improved greatly in the interval. Hisappearance was as ghastly as ever, but all trace of delirium hadleft him and he spoke in a feeble voice, it is true, but with evenmore than his usual crispness and lucidity.

    "To-day, for example?"

   "'This is very extraordinary conduct, Mr. Latimer,' I stammered.'You must be aware that what you are doing is quite illegal.'"'It is somewhat of a liberty, no doubt,' said he, 'but we'll makeit up to you. I must warn you, however, Mr. Melas, that if at any timeto-night you attempt to raise an alarm or do anything which is againstmy interest, you will find it a very serious thing. I beg you toremember that no one knows where you are, and that, whether you are inthis carriage or in my house, you are equally in my power.'"His words were quiet but he had a rasping way of saying them, whichwas very menacing. I sat in silence wondering what on earth could behis reason for kidnapping me in this extraordinary fashion. Whateverit might be, it was perfectly clear that there was no possible usein my resisting, and that I could only wait to see what might befall."For nearly two hours we drove without my having the least clue asto where we were going. Sometimes the rattle of the stones told of apaved causeway, and at others our smooth, silent course suggestedasphalt; but, save by this variation in sound, there was nothing atall which could in the remotest way help me to form a guess as towhere we were. The paper over each window was impenetrable to light,and a blue curtain was drawn across the glasswork in front. It was aquarter past seven when we left Pall Mall, and my watch showed me thatit was ten minutes to nine when we at last came to a standstill. Mycompanion let down the window, and I caught a glimpse of a low, archeddoorway with a lamp burning above it. As I was hurried from thecarriage it swung open, and I found myself inside the house, with avague impression of a lawn and trees on each side of me as Ientered. Whether these were private grounds, however, or bona-fidecountry was more than I could possibly venture to say.

    "I cannot imagine."

<  [In publishing these short sketches based upon the numerous cases inwhich my companion's singular gifts have made us the listeners to, andeventually the actors in, some strange drama, it is only naturalthat I should dwell rather upon his successes than upon hisfailures. And this not so much for the sake of his reputation-for,indeed, it was when he was at his wit's end that his energy and hisversatility were most admirable-but because where he failed ithappened too often that no one else succeeded, and that the tale wasleft forever without a conclusion. Now and again, however, itchanced that even when he erred the truth was still discovered. I havenoted of some half-dozen cases of the kind; the adventure of theMusgrave Ritual and that which I am about to recount are the two whichpresent the strongest features of interest.]   "I presume they were of value?"

    Just before nine o'clock Sherlock Holmes stepped briskly into theroom. His features were gravely set but there was a light in his eyewhich made me think that he had not been disappointed in hisconclusions.


<  "Kindly let me have the facts, Mr. Munro," said Holmes with someimpatience.   "Alas!" replied our visitor, "the very horror of my situation liesin the fact that my fears are so vague, and my suspicions depend soentirely upon small points, which might seem trivial to another,that even he to whom of all others I have a right to look for help andadvice looks upon all that I tell him about it as the fancies of anervous woman. He does not say so, but I can read it from his soothinganswers and averted eyes. But I have heard, Mr. Holmes, that you cansee deeply into the manifold wickedness of the human heart. You mayadvise me how to walk amid the dangers which encompass me.""I am all attention, madam."

    "I came back-"

"It is always a joy to meet an American, Mr.Moulton, for I am one of those who believe that the folly of a monarchand the blundering of a minister in far-gone years will not preventour children from being some day citizens of the same world-widecountry under a flag which shall be a quartering of the Union Jackwith the Stars and Stripes." 【详细】

In an instant his strange headgear began tomove, and there reared itself from among his hair the squatdiamond-shaped head and puffed neck of a loathsome serpent."It is a swamp adder!" cried Holmes; "the deadliest snake inIndia. He has died within ten seconds of being bitten. Violencedoes, in truth, recoil upon the violent and the schemer falls into thepit which he digs for another. Let us thrust this creature back intoits den, and we can then remove Miss Stoner to some place of shelterand let the county police know what has happened." 【详细】
