Following his lead, we ascended five stories, until we foundourselves outside a half-opened door, at which our client tapped. Avoice within bade us enter, and we entered a bare, unfurnished roomsuch as Hall Pycroft had described. At the single table sat the manwhom we had seen in the street, with his evening paper spread out infront of him, and as he looked up at us it seemed to me that I hadnever looked upon a face which bore such marks of grief, and ofsomething beyond grief-of a horror such as comes to few men in alifetime. His brow glistened with perspiration, his cheeks were of thedull, dead white of a fish's belly, and his eyes were wild andstaring. He looked at his clerk as though he failed to recognizehim, and I could see by the astonishment depicted upon our conductor'sface that this was by no means the usual appearance of his employer."You look ill, Mr. Pinner!" he exclaimed.

    We were ushered into a dim-lit drawing-room, where an instantlater we were joined by a very tall, handsome, light-bearded man offifty, the younger brother of the dead scientist. His wild eyes,stained cheeks, and unkempt hair all spoke of the sudden blow whichhad fallen upon the household. He was hardly articulate as he spoke ofit.

   Three doors faced us upon the second floor, and it was from thecentral of these that the sinister sounds were issuing, sinkingsometimes into a dull mumble and rising again into a shrill whine.It was locked, but the key had been left on the outside. Holmesflung open the door and rushed in, but he was out again in an instant,with his hand to his throat.

    "How long was it before you went to bed?"

   "As you are aware, Watson, there is no one who knows the highercriminal world of London so well as I do. For years past I havecontinually been conscious of some power behind the malefactor, somedeep organizing power which forever stands in the way of the law,and throws its shield over the wrong-doer. Again and again in cases ofthe most varying sorts-forgery cases, robberies, murders-I have feltthe presence of this force, and I have deduced its action in many ofthose undiscovered crimes in which I have not been personallyconsulted. For years I have endeavoured to break through the veilwhich shrouded it, and at last the time came when I seized my threadand followed it, until it led me, after a thousand cunning windings,to ex-Professor Moriarty, of mathematical celebrity.<  "I see many objections to any such theory."

    "That was my own business," said the woman sullenly.

   "Well, sir?" said he.

    From the baffled look upon Holmes's face, I could see clearly thathe did.

<  "If it was one of a pair you should surely be able to match it.""Well, we have them all laid out at the house if you would care tolook them over."   It was a blazing hot day in August. Baker Street was like an oven,and the glare of the sunlight upon the yellow brickwork of the houseacross the road was painful to the eye. It was hard to believe thatthese were the same walls which loomed so gloomily through the fogs ofwinter. Our blinds were half-drawn, and Holmes lay curled upon thesofa, reading and re-reading a letter which he had received by themorning post. For myself, my term of service in India had trained meto stand heat better than cold, and a thermometer at ninety was nohardship. But the morning paper was uninteresting. Parliament hadrisen. Everybody was out of town, and I yearned for the glades ofthe New Forest or the shingle of Southsea. A depleted bank account hadcaused me to postpone my holiday, and as to my companion, neitherthe country nor the sea presented the slightest attraction to him.He loved to lie in the very centre of five millions of people, withhis filaments stretching out and running through them, responsive toevery little rumour or suspicion of unsolved crime. Appreciation ofnature found no place among his many gifts, and his only change waswhen he turned his mind from the evil-doer of the town to track downhis brother of the country.

    "Well, gentlemen, you have the drop on me this time. I seem tohave knocked up against something hard. But I came here in answer to aletter from Mrs. Hilton Cubitt. Don't tell me that she is in this?Don't tell me that she helped to set a trap for me?"


<  It was no very unusual thing for Mr. Lestrade, of Scotland Yard,to look in upon us of an evening, and his visits were welcome toSherlock Holmes, for they enabled him to keep in touch with all thatwas going on at the police headquarters. In return for the newswhich Lestrade would bring, Holmes was always ready to listen withattention to the details of any case upon which the detective wasengaged, and was able occasionally, without any active interference,to give some hint or suggestion drawn from his own vast knowledgeand experience.   "Yes, have you not heard? Poor father has never been strong foryears back, but this has broken him down completely. He has taken tohis bed, and Dr. Willows says that he is a wreck and that hisnervous system is shattered. Mr. McCarthy was the only man alive whohad known dad in the old days in Victoria."

    "Proceed then."
