How cold these rooms are, maamselle! said Annette: nobody has lived in them for many, many years, they say. Do let us go.
Very curious, and the story that hangs round it will strike youas being more curious still. Parted neer shall be.
Thank you. I should like to think over the matter a little now.If the cottage is now permanently deserted we may have somedifficulty. If, on the other hand, as I fancy is more likely, theinmates were warned of your coming and left before you enteredyesterday, then they may be back now, and we should clear it all upeasily. Let me advise you, then, to return to Norbury and to examinethe windows of the cottage again. If you have reason to believe thatit is inhabited, do not force your way in, but send a wire to myfriend and me. We shall be with you within an hour of receiving it,and we shall then very soon get to the bottom of the business.And if it is still empty? Well, well, you did your best, said Holmes as we walked into ourroom. Its very annoying, though, Watson. I was badly in need of acase, and this looks, from the mans impatience, as if it were ofimportance. Hullo! thats not your pipe on the table. He must haveleft his behind him. A nice old brier with a good long stem of whatthe tobacconists call amber. I wonder how many real ambermouthpieces there are in London? Some people think that a fly in it isa sign. Well, he must have been disturbed in his mind to leave apipe behind him which he evidently values highly.
I burnt it. Dear me, Holmes! I cried, that seemed to me to be the mostdamning incident of all.

Half-past two had chimed, and it was the darkest hour which precedesthe dawn, when we all started as a low but sharp click came from thedirection of the gate. Someone had entered the drive. Again therewas a long silence, and I had begun to fear that it was a false alarm,when a stealthy step was heard upon the other side of the hut, and amoment later a metallic scraping and clinking. The man was trying toforce the lock. This time his skill was greater or his tool wasbetter, for there was a sudden snap and the creak of the hinges.Then a match was struck, and next instant the steady light from acandle filled the interior of the hut. Through the gauze curtain oureyes were all riveted upon the scene within.
Montoni and his companion did not return home, till many hours after the dawn had blushed upon the Adriatic. The airy groups, which had danced all night along the colonnade of St. Mark, dispersed before the morning, like so many spirits. Montoni had been otherwise engaged; his soul was little susceptible of light pleasures. He delighted in the energies of the passions; the difficulties and tempests of life, which wreck the happiness of others, roused and strengthened all the powers of his mind, and afforded him the highest enjoyments, of which his nature was capable. Without some object of strong interest, life was to him little more than a sleep; and, when pursuits of real interest failed, he substituted artificial ones, till habit changed their nature, and they ceased to be unreal. Of this kind was the habit of gaming, which he had adopted, first, for the purpose of relieving him from the languor of inaction, but had since pursued with the ardour of passion. In this occupation he had passed the night with Cavigni and a party of young men, who had more money than rank, and more vice than either. Montoni despised the greater part of these for the inferiority of their talents, rather than for their vicious inclinations, and associated with them only to make them the instruments of his purposes. Among these, however, were some of superior abilities, and a few whom Montoni admitted to his intimacy, but even towards these he still preserved a decisive and haughty air, which, while it imposed submission on weak and timid minds, roused the fierce hatred of strong ones. He had, of course, many and bitter enemies; but the rancour of their hatred proved the degree of his power; and, as power was his chief aim, he gloried more in such hatred, than it was possible he could in being esteemed. A feeling so tempered as that of esteem, he despised, and would have despised himself also had he thought himself capable of being flattered by it.
