God bless you! said Pinocchio.
Well, sir, I think it would hardly interest them. It was just thehead and a few bones of a mummy. It may have been a thousand yearsold. But it wasnt there before. That Ill swear, and so willStephens. It had been stowed away in a corner and covered over witha board, but that corner had always been empty before.What did you do with it? LIEBETRAUT plays and sings.
A small side door led into the whitewashed corridor from which thethree bedrooms opened. Holmes refused to examine the third chamber, sowe passed at once to the second, that in which Miss Stoner was nowsleeping, and in which her sister had met with her fate. It was ahomely little room, with a low ceiling and a gaping fireplace, afterthe fashion of old country-houses. A brown chest of drawers stood inone corner, a narrow white-counterpaned bed in another, and adressing table on the left-hand side of the window. These articles,with two small wickerwork chairs, made up all the furniture in theroom save for a square of Wilton carpet in the centre. The boardsround and the panelling of the walls were of brown, worm-eaten oak, soold and discoloured that it may have dated from the originalbuilding of the house. Holmes drew one of the chairs into a corner andsat silent, while his eyes travelled round and round and up anddown, taking in every detail of the apartment. I was amused by her society, and she could see that I was amused.Her father is very rich?

We ascended the stairs and viewed the body. Miss Brenda Tregennishad been a very beautiful girl, though now verging upon middle age.Her dark, clear-cut face was handsome, even in death, but therestill lingered upon it something of that convulsion of horror whichhad been her last human emotion. From her bedroom we descended tothe sitting-room, where this strange tragedy had actually occurred.The charred ashes of the overnight fire lay in the grate. On the tablewere the four guttered and burned-out candles, with the cardsscattered over its surface. The chairs had been moved back against thewalls, but all else was as it had been the night before. Holmespaced with light, swift steps about the room; he sat in the variouschairs, drawing them up and reconstructing their positions. Hetested how much of the garden was visible; he examined the floor,the ceiling, and the fireplace; but never once did I see that suddenbrightening of his eyes and tightening of his lips which would havetold me that he saw some gleam of light in this utter darkness.Why a fire? he asked once. Had they always a fire in this smallroom on a spring evening?
