澳门老虎机平台城网址【址:a g 9 559⒐ v i p】<  By eleven o'clock the next day we were well upon our way to theold English capital. Holmes had been buried in the morning papersall the way down, but after we had passed the Hampshire border hethrew them down and began to admire the scenery. It was an idealspring day, a light blue sky, flecked with little fleecy whiteclouds drifting across from west to east. The sun was shining verybrightly, and yet there was an exhilarating nip in the air, whichset an edge to a man's energy. All over the countryside, away to therolling hills around Aldershot, the little red and gray roofs of thefarm-steadings peeped out from amid the light green of the newfoliage.   "PIERROT.

    "When had he a letter before that?"

   "I suppose that none of these securities have been found among theproperty of the dead man?"

   It was horrible. No words can describe the framework of a facewhen the face itself is gone. Two living and beautiful brown eyeslooking sadly out from that grisly ruin did but make the view moreawful. Holmes held up his hand in a gesture of pity and protest, andtogether we left the room.


    "I've got my facts pretty clear," said Stanley Hopkins. "All Iwant now is to know what they all mean. The story, so far as I canmake it out, is like this. Some years ago this country house, YoxleyOld Place, was taken by an elderly man, who gave the name of ProfessorCoram. He was an invalid, keeping his bed half the time, and the otherhalf hobbling round the house with a stick or being pushed about thegrounds by the gardener in a Bath chair. He was well liked by thefew neighbours who called upon him, and he has the reputation downthere of being a very learned man. His household used to consist of anelderly housekeeper, Mrs. Marker, and of a maid, Susan Tarlton.These have both been with him since his arrival, and they seem to bewomen of excellent character. The professor is writing a learned book,and he found it necessary, about a year ago, to engage a secretary.The first two that he tried were not successes, but the third, Mr.Willoughby Smith, a very young man straight from the university, seemsto have been just what his employer wanted. His work consisted inwriting all the morning to the professor's dictation, and he usuallyspent the evening in hunting up references and passages which boreupon the next day's work. This Willoughby Smith has nothing againsthim, either as a boy at Uppingham or as a young man at Cambridge. Ihave seen his testimonials, and from the first he was a decent, quiet,hard-worlding fellow, with no weak spot in him at all. And yet this isthe lad who has met his death this morning in the professor's studyunder circumstances which can point only to murder."

   "I had got into the way of supposing that you knew everythingwithout being told," said he. "But I will give you the facts, and Ihope to God that you will be able to tell me what they mean. I've beenawake all night puzzling my brain, and the more I think the moreincredible does it become.

    "Then you could hardly have been overheard?"

   "I can think of none."

    "But it is profoundly true. Singularity is almost invariably a clue.The more featureless and commonplace a crime is, the more difficult itis to bring it home. In this case, however, they have established avery serious case against the son of the murdered man.""It is a murder, then?"

<  "What wages?"   "About six."

    As Holmes drew the curtain I was aware, from some little rigidityand alertness of his attitude, that he was prepared for anemergency. As a matter of fact, the drawn curtain disclosed nothingbut three or four suits of clothes hanging from a line of pegs. Holmesturned away, and stooped suddenly to the floor.

    "How came you to know of this?" he cried. And then, with some returnof his truculent mariner: "What business is it of yours?""My name is Sherlock Holmes," said my companion. "Possibly it isfamiliar to you. In any case, my business is that of every othergood citizen- to uphold the law. It seems to me that you have muchto answer for."

It is at least certain that a warrant has beenissued. There have been further and sinister developments in theinvestigation at Norwood. Besides the signs of a struggle in theroom of the unfortunate builder it is now known that the Frenchwindows of his bedroom (which is on the ground floor) were found to beopen, that there were marks as if some bulky object had been draggedacross to the wood-pile, and, finally, it is asserted that charredremains have been found among the charcoal ashes of the fire. Thepolice theory is that a most sensational crime has been committed,that the victim was clubbed to death in his own bedroom, his papersrifled, and his dead body dragged across to the wood-stack, whichwas then ignited so as to hide all traces of the crime. The conduct ofthe criminal investigation has been left in the experienced hands ofInspector Lestrade, of Scotland Yard, who is following up the clueswith his accustomed energy and sagacity." 【详细】
