I will just put on myslippers before we settle this little matter of yours. Now, then!You want to know what became of those geese?"   "Yes, that was it. Mr. Hugo Oberstein, Of 13 Caulfield Gardens,had become my objective. I began my operations at Gloucester RoadStation, where a very helpful official walked with me along thetrack and allowed me to satisfy myself not only that the back-stairwindows of Caulfield Gardens open on the line but the even moreessential fact that, owing to the intersection of one of the largerrailways, the Underground trains are frequently held motionless forsome minutes at that very spot."

    As we drove up to the porticoed front door, I observed in front ofit, beside the tennis lawn, the black tool-house and the pedestalledsundial with which we had such strange associations. A dapper littleman, with a quick, alert manner and a waxed moustache, had justdescended from a high dog-cart. He introduced himself as InspectorMartin, of the Norfolk Constabulary, and he was considerablyastonished when he heard the name of my companion.

   I had to confess that I did not.

    "A simple case, and yet, in some ways, an instructive one," Holmesremarked, as we travelled back to town. "It hinged from the outsetupon the pince-nez. But for the fortunate chance of the dying manhaving seized these, I am not sure that we could ever have reached oursolution. It was clear to me, from the strength of the glasses, thatthe wearer must have been very blind and helpless when deprived ofthem. When you asked me to believe that she walked along a narrowstrip of grass without once making a false step, I remarked, as youmay remember, that it was a noteworthy performance. In my mind I setit down as an impossible performance, save in the unlikely case thatshe had a second pair of glasses. I was forced, therefore, to considerseriously the hypothesis that she had remained within the house. Onperceiving the similarity of the two corridors, it became clear thatshe might very easily have made such a mistake, and, in that case,it was evident that she must have entered the professor's room. Iwas keenly on the alert, therefore, for whatever would bear out thissupposition, and I examined the room narrowly for anything in theshape of a hiding-place. The carpet seemed continuous and firmlynailed, so I dismissed the idea of a trap-door. There might well bea recess behind the books. As you are aware, such devices are commonin old libraries. I observed that books were piled on the floor at allother points, but that one bookcase was left clear. This, then,might be the door. I could see no marks to guide me, but the carpetwas of a dun colour, which lends itself very well to examination. Itherefore smoked a great number of those excellent cigarettes, and Idropped the ash all over the space in front of the suspected bookcase.It was a simple trick, but exceedingly effective. I then wentdownstairs, and I ascertained, in your presence, Watson, withoutyour perceiving the drift of my remarks, that Professor Coram'sconsumption of food had increased- as one would expect when he issupplying a second person. We then ascended to the room again, when,by upsetting the cigarette-box, I obtained a very excellent view ofthe floor, and was able to see quite clearly, from the traces upon thecigarette ash, that the prisoner had in our absence come out fromher retreat. Well, Hopkins, here we are at Charing Cross, and Icongratulate you on having brought your case to a successfulconclusion. You are going to headquarters, no doubt. I think,Watson, you and I will drive together to the Russian Embassy."-THE END-

    The woman's answer was a terrible one. She raised her veil andstepped forward into the light.

   "How can he be listening with that music going?"<  "Some folk might say there was madness in his method," mutteredthe inspector. "But he's all on fire to start, Colonel, so we had bestgo out if you are ready."

    "You have already been assaulted?"

   "I object to my girl picking up with men outside her own station.""It was your prejudice against him which prevented us from tellingyou. As to this appointment"- she fumbled in her dress and produceda crumpled note "it was in answer to this."

    The woman shook her head.

<  "Oh, you did notice that, did you? Come, Watson, you improve all thetime. Yes, it was bad English but good American. The printer had setit up as received. Then the buckboards. That is American also. Andartesian wells are commoner with them than with us. It was a typicalAmerican advertisement, but purporting to be from an English firm.What do you make of that?"   The inspector seemed considerably relieved.

    The three glasses were grouped together, all of them tinged withwine, and one of them containing some dregs of beeswing. The bottlestood near them, two-thirds full, and beside it lay a long, deeplystained cork. Its appearance and the dust upon the bottle showedthat it was no common vintage which the murderers had enjoyed.A change had come over Holmes's manner. He had lost his listlessexpression, and again I saw an alert light of interest in his keen,deep-set eyes. He raised the cork and examined it minutely."How did they draw it?" he asked.


<  "There's the village," said the driver, pointing to a cluster ofroofs some distance to the left; "but if you want to get to the house,you'll find it shorter to get over this stile, and so by the foot-pathover the fields. There it is, where the lady is walking.""And the lady, I fancy, is Miss Stoner," observed Holmes, shadinghis eyes. "Yes, I think we had better do as you suggest."We got off, paid our fare, and the trap rattled back on its way toLeatherhead.   "Have you any reason to suspect robbery?"

    The wretched creature began to whimper.

This is a big thing forme to handle, and I'll hear of it from Lewes if I go wrong."I advised him to send for his immediate superior, and for adoctor; also to allow nothing to be moved, and as few freshfootmarks as possible to be made, until they came. In the meantime Isearched the dead man's pockets. There were his handkerchief, alarge knife, and a small folding card-case. From this projected a slipof paper, which I unfolded and handed to the constable. There waswritten on it in a scrambling, feminine hand: 【详细】
