If our Wild West friend tries tolive up to his nickname, we must be ready for him. I'll give you anhour for a siesta, Watson, and then I think it will be time for ourRyder Street adventure."   The unfortunate young man staggered back, and cast a look full ofhorror and reproach at Bannister.

    "As to me, I entirely disclaim all responsibility," said herhusband.

   "Best in England, Mr. Holmes. I should know, if anyone does. Now,I'll be plain with you, for I know you are gentlemen of honour andthat it won't go beyond the room. Sir Robert has got to win thisDerby. He's up to the neck, and it's his last chance. Everything hecould raise or borrow is on the horse- and at fine odds, too! Youcan get forties now, but it was nearer the hundred when he began toback him."

    "Mr. Holmes!" said the lady, and her face was pink with herindignation. "This is surely most unfair and ungenerous upon yourpart. I desired, as I have explained, to keep my visit to you asecret, lest my husband should think that I was intruding into hisaffairs. And yet you compromise me by coming here and so showingthat there are business relations between us."

    "Then I do not see the point."

   "I'll chance it," he cried. "I believe you are a man of your word,and a white man, and I'll tell you the whole story. But one thing Iwill say first. So far as I am concerned, I regret nothing and Ifear nothing, and I would do it all again and be proud of the job.Damn the beast, if he had as many lives as a cat, he would owe themall to me! But it's the lady, Mary- Mary Fraser- for never will I callher by that accursed name. When I think of getting her into trouble, Iwho would give my life just to bring one smile to her dear face,it's that that turns my soul into water. And yet- and yet- what lesscould I do? I'll tell you my story, gentlemen, and then I'll ask you, asman to man, what less could I do?<  "No, I fancy Chiswick is an address which is more likely to findhim. If you will come with me to Chiswick to-night, Lestrade, I'llpromise to go to the Italian Quarter with you to-morrow, and no harmwill be done by the delay. And now I think that a few hours' sleepwould do us all good, for I do not propose to leave before eleveno'clock, and it is unlikely that we shall be back before morning.You'll dine with us, Lestrade, and then you are welcome to the sofauntil it is time for us to start. In the meantime, Watson, I should beglad if you would ring for an express messenger, for I have a letterto send and it is important that it should go at once."Holmes spent the evening in rummaging among the files of the olddaily papers with which one of our lumber-rooms was packed. When atlast he descended, it was with triumph in his eyes, but he saidnothing to either of us as to the result of his researches. For my ownpart, I had followed step by step the methods by which he had tracedthe various windings of this complex case, and, though I could not yetperceive the goal which we would reach, I understood clearly thatHolmes expected this grotesque criminal to make an attempt upon thetwo remaining busts, one of which, I remembered, was at Chiswick. Nodoubt the object of our journey was to catch him in the very act,and I could not but admire the cunning with which my friend hadinserted a wrong clue in the evening paper, so as to give the fellowthe idea that he could continue his scheme with impunity. I was notsurprised when Holmes suggested that I should take my revolver withme. He had himself picked up the loaded hunting-crop, which was hisfavourite weapon.

    "Well, we were both worried. It was so deucedly difficult toreconstruct the affair. Look at it from the lion's point of view. Heis liberated. What does he do? He takes half a dozen bounds forward,which brings him to Ronder. Ronder turns to fly- the claw-marks wereon the back of his head- but the lion strikes him down. Then,instead of bounding on and escaping, he returns to the woman, whowas close to the cage, and he knocks her over and chews her face up.Then, again, those cries of hers would seem to imply that herhusband had in some way failed her. What could the poor devil havedone to help her? You see the difficulty?"

   "You say that you returned to your room. Did you leave it againbefore next morning.

    "A setback?"

<  "He has certainly interfered several times," the inspectoranswered with reserve.   "'I thought you were the brokers,' said she, 'we have had sometrouble with a tradesman.'

    "Suddenly, as she spoke, I saw her white face grow whiter yet in themoonlight, and her hand tightened upon my shoulder. Something wasmoving in the shadow of the tool-house. I saw a dark, creepingfigure which crawled round the corner and squatted in front of thedoor. Seizing my pistol, I was rushing out, when my wife threw herarms round me and held me with convulsive strength. I tried to throwher off, but she clung to me most desperately. At last I got clear,but by the time I had opened the door and reached the house thecreature was gone. He had left a trace of his presence, however, forthere on the door was the very same arrangement of dancing men whichhad already twice appeared, and which I have copied on that paper.There was no other sign of the fellow anywhere, though I ran allover the grounds. And yet the amazing thing is that he must havebeen there all the time, for when I examined the door again in themorning, he had scrawled some more of his pictures under the linewhich I had already seen."


<  "And speaking low?"   "No, sir."

    "I owe you an apology," he said, raising his golden pince-nezto his eyes. "I trust that I am not intruding. I fear that Ihave brought some traces of the storm and rain into your snugchamber."
