have you Bout to Cleveland
Wo tolographod this morning
How did you word your inquiries
Wo simply dctixllnd tho circuits
itancas mid Bald that wo should bo glad
of any Information which could help us
You did not ask for particulars ou
any point which appeared to you to bo
crucial
I asked about Stangcrsou
Nothing else Is there no circum
stance on which this wholo case ap
pears to hinge Will you not telegraph
again
I have said all I have to say said
Urcgson Inlnn oflondod voice
Sherlock Holmes chuckled to himself
awl nppcarcd to bo about to make somo
remark whnn Lostrado who had been
lu the front room while wo were bold
ing this conversation in tho hall reap
geared upon tho scow rubbing his
hands in n pompous and self satiiflod
manner Mr Grogsoii ho mid I have just
made a discovery of tho highest impor
tuiae and ono which would have bOOn
overlooked had I not made n careful
examination of tho walls
S Tho little mans eyes sparkled as ho
spoke and hu was evidently In A state
of suppressed exultation at having scored I
a point against his colleague
Come here ho said biiHtllng back
into the room the atmosphere of which
felt cleaner since tliu removal of its
ghastly inmate Now Maud there
Ho struck n match on his boot and
held It up against tho wall
Look at that ho said triumphantly
I have remarked that tho paper had
fallen away in parts In this particu
bar corner of thn room a large plccu had
pooled off leaving a yellow nquaru of
coarse plastering Across this bare
space there was scrawled in blood red
letters n alnglu word Itachu
What do you think of that cried
tho detective with tho air of A showman
exhibiting his show This was over
looked because it was In tho darkest
corner of thu room and no ono thought
of looking there The murderer has
written it with his or bur own blood
See this smear where it has trickled
down the wall That deposes of tho
Idea of suicide anyhow Why was that
corner choMon to write it 0111 I will tell
you Boo that candle on tho mantel
piece It was lit nt thu time and if it
was lit this corner would bo tho bright
out instead of tho darkest portion of the
wallAnd
And what dons it mean now that
you have found It asked Qrcgson in n
deprecatory voice
toast Why it means that the writer
was going to put the fomalo name Ra
chub but won disturbed before hu or she
had time to finish Yon mark my words
when this case comes to bo cleared up
you will find that a woman named Ha
chel has Momothlug to do with it Its
all very well for you to laugh Mr Sher
lock Holmes You may bo very smart
and clever but the old hound Is tho best
whets nil is said and dona
I really beg your pardon said my
companion who hod ranted tho little
lIIalllI temper by bursting Into nn explo
sion of laughter You certainly Juno
the credit of being tho tint of us to find
this out and M you say it bear every
mark of having been written by tho
other participant in last nights mys
tery I havu not had time to examine
thlll room yet but with your permission
I shall do so now
As ho spoke ho whipped a tape meas
ure and n large round magnifying glass
from his packet With these imple
meats ho trotted noiselessly about tho
room sometimes stopping occasion
ally kneeling and once lying flat upon
his face So engrossed was ho with his
occupation that ho appeared to have
forgotten our presence for ho chattered
away to himself under hli breath tho
wholo time keeping up n running fire
of exclamations groans whistles add
little cries suggostlvn of encouragement
and of hope As I watched him I was
irresistibly reminded of a pure blooded
well trained foxhound ns It dashes back
ward and forward through tho covert
whining in its eagcrnesn until it comes
across the lost scent For 20 minutes or
moro ho continued his researches meas
tiring with the most exact care tho dis
like between marks which wero mr
tirely Invisible to mo and occasionally
applying his tape to tho walls in an
equally incompruhcnsiblo manner In
0110 paid ho gathered very carefully a
little pile of gray dust from the floor
and packed It away in nn envelope
Finally ho examined with his glass tho
word upon tho wall going over every
letter of it with tho most minute ex
actness This done ho appeared to be
satisfied for he replaced his tape and
his glaiw In his pocket
They say that genius is an Infinite
capacity for taking pains ho remark
ed with n Hiuilo Its a very bad shaft
mutton but it dOCK apply to detective
work Qregsou and Lestrado had watched
the maneuvers of their amateur com
panion with considerable curiosity and
Polite contempt They evidently failed
to appreciate tho fact which I had be
gun to realize that Sherlock Holmes
smallest actions wore all directed to
ward sonic definite and practical end
What do you think of it sir they
both asked
It would be robbing you of the credit
of tho case If I was to presume to help
you remarked my friend You nro
doing so well now that it would bo a
pity for any ono to interfere There
was A world of sarcasm in his voice as
ho spoke If you will let mo know
how your investigations go ho con
tinued I shall be happy to give you
any help I can In the mcantitna 1
should like to speak to thu constable
who found the body Con you give mo
his narno and address
Lostrado glanced at his notebook
John Haziest ho said He is off
duty now You will find him at 40
Audley court Kounlngtou Park Gate
Holmes took a note of the address
Como along doctor hosald We
shall go and look him up Ill toll you
ono thing which may holp you in tho
case ho continued turning to the two
detectives Thcro has been murder
done and the murdorer was a man Ho
was moro than 0 feet high was in tho
prime of life had small feet for his
height worq coarse square toed boots
and smoked a Trichinopoly cigar lie
01110 hero with his victim in a four
wheeled cab which was drawn by a
horse with three old shoes and one now
one ouhis off fore log in all probabil
ity tho murderer had a florid face and
tho finger nails of his right hand were
remarkably long These are only a fow
indications but they may assist you
Lentrado and Grogsou glanced nt each
other with au incredulous smile
If this man was murdered how was
it done ko thoformor
Poison said Sherlock Holmes curt
ly and strode off One other thing
Lestrado ho added turning around at
tho door Rache is the German for
revenge so dont lose your time look
lug for Miss Rachel
With which Parthian shot ho walked
away leaving the two rivals open

CHAPTER IV
It was 1 oclock when wo loft 3 Lau
rlston Gardens Sherlock Holmofl led
me to tho nearest telegraph oflice whence
ho dispatched a long telegram Ho then
hailed a cab and ordered tho driver to
take us to tho address given us by Le
stradoThero
Thero is nothing like first hand evi
deuce hu remarked As n matter of
fact my mind is entirely Main up on
the caxp but still wo may as well learn
all that is to Im learned
You amazu me Holmes said L
Surely you nro not ns sure ns you pro
tend to hoof nil those particulars which
you gave
gaveTheres no room for A mistake ho
answered The very first tiling which
I observed on arriving there was that a
cab had mado two ruts with its wheels
close to tho curb Now up to last night
wo had no rain for n week no that those
wheels which left such a deep impres
slots must have been there during the
night Thero were tho marks of the
hordes hoofs too the outline of ono of
which was far moro clearly cut than
that of tho other three showing that
that was n new shoe Since the cab was
there after tho rain began and was not
there at anytime during tho morning
I have Gregson word for thatIt fol
lows that it must havo been thero slur
fug tho night nnd therefore that it
brought thoso two individuals to tho
IIOUKOThat
That seems simple enough said 1
but how about tho other mans height
Why thin height of n man In nine
cases out of ton can be told from tho
length of his strides It is a simple cal
culatlon enough though there is no use
my boring you with figures 1 had this
fellows stride both on tho clay outside
nud on tho dust within Then 1 had n
way of checking my calculation When
A man writes on a wall his instinct
lends him to write about tho level of his
own eyes Now that writing was just
over six feet from tho ground It was
child play
And his ago I asked
Well if a man can stride 4J feet
without tho slightest effort ho cant bo
quite in tho sere and yellow That was
tho breadth of a puddle on tho garden
walk which ho had evidently walked
across Patent leather boots had gone
around milt square toes had hopped
over There is no mystery about it at
nIL I am simply applying to ordinary
life a fow of thoso precepts of observa
tion amid deduction which I advocated in
that article Is there nnythlng else that
puzzles you
Tho linger nails and tho Trichinop
oly I suggested
Tho writing on tho wall was done
with n mans forefinger dipped in blood
My glass allowed mo to observe that
the plaster was slightly scratched in
doing it which would not Imam been
tho caso if till mans nail had been
trimmed I gathered up some scattered
ash from tho floor It was dark in color
ant flaky such an ash as is only mado
by a Trichinopoly I havo mndo n study
of cigar ashes in fact I have written
n monograph upon tho subject I flat
tor myself that I can distinguish at a
glance till tali of amy known brand
either of cigar or of tobacco It Is just
in such details that the skilled detective
differs from tho Gregson and Lestrado
typoAnd
And tho florid face I asked
Ah that was a moro daring ss hot
though have no doubt that I was right
Yon must not ask mo that at tho pres
cut state of tho affair
I passed my hand over my brow
My head is in n whirl I remarked
Tho more ouo thinks of it tho more
mysterious it grows How cause these
two monit there wore two men into
an empty house What has bocomo of
tho cabman who drove thorn How could
isono
ono man compel another to take poison
Whore did tho blood come from What
was tho object of tho murderer since
robbery had no part in it How cane
tho womans ring there Above all why
should the second man write up tho
Gorman word Radio before decamp
ing I confess I cannot see any possible
way of reconciling all these facts
My companion smiled approvingly
Yon sum up the difficulties of tho
situation succinctly and well ho said
There is much that is still obscure
though I have quite ante np my ndm t
on tho main facts As to poor Lcstraelos
discovery it was simply n blind intend
ed to put tho police upon a wrong track
by suggesting socialism and secret so
cieties It was not done by n German
Thu a if you noticed was printed
somewhat after tho German fashion
Now A real Gorman invariably prints in
tho Latin character so that wo may
safely say that this was not written by
one but by a clumsy imitator who
overdid his part It was simply n ruse
to divert inquiry into n wrong channel
Im not going to toll yon much moro of
the case doctor You know n conjurer
gets no credit when ouco ho has cxplnjn
od his trick and if I show you too much
of my method of working you will conio
to tho conclusion that I am a very or
dinary individual after all
I shall never do that I answered
You have brought detection as near
an exact science as it will over bo
brought in this world
My companion flushed up with pleas
ure at my words and tho earnest way in
which I uttered them I had already
observed that ho was sonslti voto flattery
on tho scoro of his art ns any girl could
bo of her beauty
Ill tell yon ono other thing ho
said Patent leathers and square toes
carne In tho same cab and they walked
down tho pathway together ns friendly
ns possible arm innrm in nil probabil
ity When they got inside they walked
np and down tho room or rather patent
loathers stood still while square toes
walked up and down I could read all
that in tho dust and I could rend that
as ho walked ho grow more and moro
excited That is shown by tho increased
length of his strides Ho was talking
nil tho while and working himself up
no doubt Into a fury Then tho tragedy
occurred Ive told yon all I know suy
self now for tho rest is more surmise
0
njid conjecture Wo have n good work
lug basis however on which to start
Wo must hurry up for I want to go to
Hallos concert to hear Norman Nerudn
this afternoon
This conversation had occurred while
our cab had been threading its way
through A long succession of dingy
streets and dreary byways In the
dingiest and dreariest of them our driver
suddenly camo to a stand Thats
Audloy court in there ho said point
ing to n narrow slit in tho lie of load
colored brick Youll find mo hero
when yon como back
Andloy court was not nn attractive lo
cality The narrow passage led na into
a quadrangle paved with flags and lined
by sordid dwellings Wo picked our I
way nmong groups of dirty children
and through lines of discolored linen
until we came to 41 tho door of which
was decorated with n small slip of bras
on which tho name Hanco was engraved
On inquiry wo found that tho constable
was in bed amid wo were shown into A
little front parlor to await his coming
Ho appeared presently looking n to
tlo irritable nt being disturbed in his
slumbers I mndo my report at tho
oil I co ho said
Holmes took n half sovereign from his
pocket and played with it pensively
Wu thought that wo should like to
hear it nil from your own lips he said
I shall ho most happy to toll yon
anything I can tho constable answer
ed with his eyes upon tho little golden
disk
Just let ns hear it all in your way
ns It occurred
Itanco sat clown on tho horsehair sofa
and knitted his brows ns though do
termined not to omit anything in his
narrative
narrativeIll
OOgIUIIIIIho
ho said My time is from 10 At night
to U in tho mornin At 11 there was
a fight at thin White Hart but bar that
nil was quiet enough on tho beat At
1 oclock it began to rain and I met
Harry Mnrchtr him who has tho Hal
land grove boat and wo stood together
at tho comer of Henrietta street ntnlkin
Presently maybe about 2 or n little nft
cr I thought I would tako n look nround
amid seo that nil was right clown tho
Orixton road It was precious dirty and
lonely Not n soul did I meet all tho
way down though n cab or two went
pant me I was nstrolliu down thlukin
between ourselves how uncommon handy I
a four of hot gin would bOo when sud
denly n glint of a light caught my eyo
in that same house Now I know that
them two houses in Lanriston gardens
was empty on account of him that owns
thorn who wont Imo tho drain seed
to though tho very last tenant that lived
in ono of them died o typhoid fever I
was knocked nil in a heap therefore at
stein a light in tho window nnd I sus
pected ns somethin was wrong When
I got to tho door
Yon stopped nnd then walked back
to tho garden gate my companion in
terrupted What did you do that for
Rauco gave a violent jump and stared
at Sherlock Holmes with tho utmost
amazement upon his features
Why thats true sir ho said
though how yon como to know it heav
en only knows Yo see when I got to
tho door it was so still and so lonesome
that I thought Id bo none tho worso for
some ono with nia I aint afeard of
allY thin on this side o tho grave but
I thought that maybo it was him that
died o tho typhoid inspcctin tho drains
what killed him The thought Mare mo
a kind o turn and I walked back to
tho gate to coo if I could see Murchers
lantern but there wasnt no sign of him
nor of any ono else
Thero was no ouo in tho street
Not a liviu soul sir nor so much
ns n dog Then I pulled myself together
nud went back And pushed tho door open
All was quiet inside so I went into tho
room whore tho light was aburnin
There was a candle flickerin on the
mantelpiece a ril wax ono and by Its
light 1 saw
Yes 1 know all that you saw Yon
walked around tho room several times
and you knelt down by the body stud
then yon walked through and tried tho
kitchen door nud then
John Rnnco sprang to his foot with n
frightened face amid suspicion in his
oyes Where was you hid to see all
that ho cried It seems to mo that
you known n deal moro than you should It
Holmes laughed and threw his card
across tho table to the constable Dont
got arresting me for tho murder ho
said I am ouo of tho hounds and not
tho wolf Mr Gregson or Mr Lestrado
will answer for that Go on though
What did you do next
Rnuco resumed his seat without hOv
over losing his mystified expression
I wont back to tho gate and sounded
my whistle That brought Marcher and
two more to till spot
Was tho street empty then
Well it was as far ns anybody that
could bo of any good goes
What do you moan
Tho constnblos features broadened
Into n grin Ive seen many n drunk
chap in my timo ho said but never
any ono so cryin drunk ns that cove
Ho was at the gate when I camo out
nleniiin up ngin the rnilius nnd asingin
nt tho pitch of his lungs about Colum
binos now fnnglod banner or somo such
stuff Ho couldnt stand far less help
What sort of A mnii wns h01 asKed
Sherlock Holmes
John Rnnco appeared to bo somewhat
irritated at this digression Ho was
an uncommon drunk sort o man ho
said Hod ha found bissolf in tho
station if wo hadnt been so took up
His face his dross Didnt you no
tice them Holmes broke in impatient
ly
I should think I did notice thorn
