Now, how can that be unless itwere by a left-handed man? He had stood behind that tree during theinterview between the father and son. He had even smoked there. Ifound the ash of a cigar, which my special knowledge of tobaccoashes enables me to pronounce as an Indian cigar. I have, as you know,devoted some attention to this, and written a little monograph onthe ashes of 140 different varieties of pipe, cigar, and cigarettetobacco. Having found the ash, I then looked round and discoveredthe stump among the moss where he had tossed it. It was an Indiancigar, of the variety which are rolled in Rotterdam.
Till in kindness the wind blew from the land oer the sea.Vacant times of youth! and vacant dreams of the future! He simply wished, I should imagine, to refresh his memory uponthat last occasion.

Miss Stoner did so, and Holmes, after a careful examinationthrough the open window, endeavoured in every way to force the shutteropen, but without success. There was no slit through which a knifecould be passed to raise the bar. Then with his lens he tested thehinges, but they were of solid iron, built firmly into the massivemasonry. Hum! said he, scratching his chin in some perplexity, mytheory certainly presents some difficulties. No one could pass theseshutters if they were bolted. Well, we shall see if the insidethrows any light upon the matter. My trust is placed in nothing now,

Gone to the nearest public-house. That is the centre of countrygossip. They would have told you every name, from the master to thescullery-maid. Williamson? It conveys nothing to my mind. If he isan elderly man he is not this active cyclist who sprints away fromthat young ladys athletic pursuit. What have we gained by yourexpedition? The knowledge that the girls story is true.
