Mr. Holmes, you are a wonder. How do you arrive at the remarkable conclusions you have mentioned?" ' "Dian't you notice that where the two streets met he crossed them diag onally?" "I believe I did, now that you speak of it." "He never would have done that if he had not been used to crossing streets that are well paved he would have stayed on the crosswalk." "And why do you conclude that he is not used to bothersome crowds?" "He didn't keep looking around on both sides and behind hi mwhile cross ing the street as if afraid he might be run down by an automobile or a cable car or a hac or a push cart or something of that kind.
