tills period Includes the case of the
papers of fx l'lcsldcnt Murlllo, and al
so the Hhoc-kliiu allalr of the Hutch
steamship I'rleslaiid, which no nearly
cost in both our lives. His cold and
proud nature was alwajs averse, how
ever, to niijthliiK In the shape of public
applause, ami he bound 111 e lu the most
strliiKi-iit terms to say no further word
of himself, Ids methods or his
a prohibition which, ax I bavo
explain!, has only now ht-oii removed.
Mr Sherlock Holmes was k-unliiK hack
In Ids chair after bin whimsical protest
and was unfolding his morning paper
lu a leisurely fashion when our atten
tion was nriested by a tremendous
1I11K at thu bell, followed Immediately
by a hollow ilrummiiik sound, as If
some one were beallnc on the outer
door with Ills list. As It opened Iheie
came a tumultii ais rush Into the hall,
rapid feet elatteied up the stair and
an liHtaut later a wild mid frau
tie yoimi: man, pale, til .hoveled and
palpltatltu;, la list Into Ihe m an, He
I iiiki'il from one to the other of 111, and
under our ;.c of itnpilry ho became
conscious that some apology was need
ed for this unceremonious entry.
"I'm sorry, Mr. Holmes," he cried.
"You mustn't blamo mi'. I ma nearly
mud. Mr. II dines, I am the unhappy
John Hector Md'ariiine."
He made the aunjiutici'im.-nt as If Ihe
II 1 1 e al me would explain both his
visit and It 1 manner, but I could see
by my eompinlon's unresponsive face
that It meant no more to blin than to
"Have a cigarette, .Mr. Mt'I-'arhiiie,"
nil lil he, pushing Ids case across. "I
am sure that with your symptoms my
friend Dr. Watson bom would pre-Nt-rlbo
a wslatlve. Tlio weather has
been ho very warm tlieso last few
days. Now, If you feel a little moie
composed I should be Kind If you would
sit down In that chair mid tell us very
(dowry anil tpilctly who you are and
what It It that you want. You men
tiontsi your inline as If I should rccou
nl.e It, but I assure you that beyond
the obvious facts that you aro a bat h
dor, a solicitor, a Freemason and an
asthmatic 1 know nothing whatever
about you."
l-'ainlllar as I was with my friend's
methods, It wiih not tlUllciilt for me to
follow bs deductions iiikI to observe
the untidiness of attire, the sheaf of
lemil papers, the watch charm and the
breathing which had prompted them.
Our client, however, stared In iiiuirc
"Yes, I am all that, Mr. Holmes, and
In addition 1 am the most unfortunate
man at this moment lu Loudon. For
heaven's sake, tloil't abandon me, Mr. f
ninnies; ir uiey come 10 iiitcsi me lie
fore 1 have iliilshfd my story iiiako
them Klve me time so that 1 may tell
you the whole truth. 1 could go to
Jail happy If 1 knew that you were
worklm: for me outside."
"Arrest you!" said Holmes. "This Is
really most unit I most Interesting. On
what charm' do you expect to bo ar
rested?" Tpon the charge of murdering Mr.
Jonas Oldacre of Lower Norwood,"
My companion's expressive face
showed nsyniiiahy which was .not. 1
Hin arraui, entirety unmixed with sat
isfaction. "Dear me," said he, "It was only this
moment at breakfast that I wiih Hay
ing to my friend Dr. Watson that sen
national cases had disappeared out of
our papers."
Our visitor Htrotclied forward a tpilv
crlug baud and picked up the Daily
Telegraph, which still lay upon Holmes'
"If you had looked nt It, nlr, you
would have neen at n glaneo what tlio
errand Is on which I have come to
you this morning. I feel ns If my
name ami my misfortune must Ik lu
every man's mouth." Ho turned It
over to expose the central page. "Here
It Is, ami with your permission I will
reml it to you. Listen to this, Mr.
Holmes. The headlines are: 'Mysterious
Alfalr at Lower Norwood. Disappear
" f n Well Known Hullder. Sus
picion of Murder uud Arson. A Clew
to the Criminal.' That Is tlio clew
which they are already following, Mr.
Holmes, ami 1 know that It leads In
fallibly to me. 1 have been followed
from London Hrltlge station, uud 1 am
Hiiro Unit they lire only waiting for the
warrant to arrest me. It will break
my mother's lwurt-It will break her
heart!" He wrung his hands In an
agony of apprehension ami nwayed
backward ami forward lu Ids ehalr.
I looked with Interest iiimiii this mail
who was accused of being tlio perpe
trator of a crlniti of violence. He was
tlaxeii haired ami handsome, lu a wash
ed out negative fashion, with frighten
ed blue eyes and a clean Hhiivon face,
with a weak. Honsltlve mouth. His agu
may have been about twenty-seven, his
dress ami hearing that of a gentleman.
From the pocket of his light summer
ovVrcoat piotruded the bundle of In
dorsed papers which proclaimed his
"We must use what time we have,"
said Holmes. "Watson, would you
have the kindness to take the paper
and to read tlio paragraph In ques
tion?" 1 naerneath the vigorous hendllnps
which our client had ipiotod I reml the
following suggestive narrative:
(To bo continued. )
A hedgehog curls Itself up by n frown
-that Is, by muscles like thono which
produce a fiovvn and It frowns se
verely or gently, according to circum
stances if it Is poked hard It "sighs"
itself tighter. If really hurt It frowns
Into a tight ball Tlio prickles can bn

point all ways this Is not needed. They
are iik sharp 11 h netslles. We hnvo only
