"Go! "vVr.r toT"
"To Dartmoor; to King s Pyland."
I n not surprised. Indeed, my only
wonder was that he had not already been
mixed up In thla extraordinary case, which
was the only topic of conversation through
the length and breadth of England. For a
whole day my companion hsd rambled
about the room, with his chin upon his
cheat and his brows knitted, charging and
recharging Ma pipe with the strongest
Mack tobacco, and absolutely deaf to any
of my questions or remanks. Freeh edi
tions of every paper had been sent up by
our news agent,' only to be glanced over
and tossed down Into a comer. Tet, silent
as he was, I knew perfectly well what It
was orer which he waa brooding. Thera
waa but one problem before the publlo
which could challenge his powers of analy
sis, and that was the singular disappear
anca of the favorite for the Wesse. cup
and the traglo murder of Its trainer.
When, therefore, ha suddenly announced
Ma Intention of aettlng out for the scene
or the drama it waa only what I had both
expected and hoped for.
"I should be most happy to go down with
you If I should not be In the wny," ssld T.
"My dear AVatson, you would confer a
great favor upon me by coming. And I
think that your time will not be misspent,
for there are points about the case which
promise to make It an absolutely unique
one. We have, I think. Just time to catch
our train at Paddlngton, and I will go
further Into the matter upon our Journey.
Tou will oblige me by bringing with you
your very excellent field glass."
And so It happened that an hour or so
later 1 found myself In the corner of a
first-class carriage flying along en route for
F.xeter,, while Bherlock Holmes, with his
sharp, eager face framed In his ear-flapped
traveling cap, dipped rapidly Into tha
bundle of fresh papers which he had pro
cured at Paddlngton. We had left Read
ying far behind us before he thrust the last
one of them under the seat and offered mo
his cigar case.
"We are going well," said he, looking out
of the window and glancing at his watch.
"Our rate at present Is fifty-three and a
half miles an hour."
"I have not obaerved the quarter-mtla
posts," said I.
"Nor have I. But the telegraph posts
upon thla line are alxty yards apart and
the calculation Is a simple one. I presume
that you have looked Into this matter of
the murder of John fltraker and the dis
appearance of Sliver maze?"
"I have seen what the Telegraph and tha
Chronicle have to say."
"It Is one of those rases where the art of
the reasoner should be used Tather for the
sifting of details than for the acquiring of
fresh evidence. The tragedy has been so
uncommon, so complete and of auch per
sonal Importance to so many people that
we are suffering from a plethora of aur
mlae, conjecture and hypothesis. The diffi
culty Is to detach the framework of fact,
of absolute undeniable fact from the em-
banishments of theorists and reporters,
Then, having established ourselves upon
this sound basis, It Is our duty to see what
Inferences may be drawn and what are tha
speclal points upon which the whole mys-
tery turns. On Tuesday evening I received
telegrama from both Colonel Ross, the
owner of the horse, and from Inspector
Gregory, who Is looking after tho case.vln-
vltlng my co-operatlonn." .
"Tuesday evening!" I exclaimed. "And
thla la Thursday morning. Why didn't you
go down yesterday T"
"Because I made a blunder, my dear Wat-
son which Is, I am afraid, a more common
occurrence than any one would think who
only knew me through your memoirs. The
fact la that I could not believe it possible
i that tha most remarkable horse in England
could long remain concealed, especially In
so sparsely inhabited a place as the north
of Dartmoor. Fiom hour to Hour yesterday
I expected to hear that he had been found
and that his abductor waa tha murderer
of John Straker. When, however, another
morning had coma and I found that beyond
the arrest of young ntsroy Simpson noth-

' 'So, you're one of those damned touts!'
cried the lad. "I'll show you how we

up and rushed across the stable to unloose
the dog. The girl fled away to the house,

,y.gi,a. Th. ,atte,. was Colonel Rons, the
well known sportsman; tha other Inspector
Gregory, a man who was rapidly making
hla name In tha Kngllsh detective aervlce.
"I am delighted that you have coma
down. Mr. Holmes.'' aald the colonel.
"The Inspector hero haa done all that could
possibly be suggested, but I wtsh to leave
no stf.oe unturned In trying to oven ge poor
Straker and In recovering my horse.
"Have there been any fresh develop
ments?" aked Holmes.
"I am sorry to say that we have made
very little progresa." asld the Inspector
"Wa have an open carriage outside, and aa
you would no doubt like to see the place
before the liaht falls, we might talk It
over as we drive."
A minute later we were all seated In a
comfortable lsndau and were rattling
through the quaint old Devonshire city.
Inspector Gregory was full of his case and
poured out a stream of remarks, while
Holmes threw In an occasional question or
Interjection. Colonel Ross leaned back
with his arms folded and hla hat tilted
over his eyes, while I listened with Interest
to the dialogue of the two detectives,
Gregory was formulating his theory, which
wis almost exactly what Holmes had fore
told In the train.
"Tho net Is pretty closely drawn round
Fitiroy Simpson," he remarked, "and I be
lieve myself that he Is our man. At the
same time I recognise that the evidence Is
purely clrcufhstantlal and that aome new
development may upset It."
"How about Straker's knife?"
"We have come to the conclusion that he
wounded himself in his fall."
My friend. Dr. Watson, made that sug
gestion to me as we came flown, if so, It
would tell against this man Simpson."
"Undoubtedly. He has neither a kmie
nor any sign of a wound. The evidence
agalnat him Is certainly very atrong. He
had a great Interest In the dlssppearance
of the favorite. He lies under suspicion of
having poiKoned the sta tile boy, he was
undoubtedly out In the storm, he wos
armed with a heavy stick and his cravat
was found in th. ded man's hand. I
really think we have enough to go before
Holmes shook hla head. "A clever coun
sel would tear It all to rags," said he.
"Why should he take the horae out of the
atable? If he wished to injure It, why
could he not do It there? Has a duplicate
key been found In his possession? What
chemist sold him the powdered opium?
Above all, where could he, a stranger to
tha district, hide a horse, and such a
horse as this? What Is his own explana
tion as to the paper which he wished th.
, maid to give to the stsble booy?"
"He says that It was a ten-pound note.
One was found in his purse. But your other
difficulties are not so formidable as they
seem. He la not a stranger to the district.
He has twice lodged at Tavistock In the
summer. The opium was probably brought
from London. The key, having served Its
purpose, would bo hurled away. The horse
may be at the bottom of one of the pits
or old mines upon the moor."
"What does he say about the cravat?"
"Ha acknowledged that it is his, and de
clares that he had lost It. But a new ele
ment has been Introduced Into the case
which may account for his leading the
horse from the atable."
Holmea pricked up hla ears.
"We have found traces which show that
a party of gypsies encamped on Monday
night within a mile of tha spot where
the murder took place. On Tuesday they
were gone. Now, presuming that there
waa some understanding between Simpson
and these gypsies, might he not have been
leading the horse to them when he was
overtaken! and may they not have him
"It 1. certainly possible."
"Tho moor Is being scoured for these
gypsies. I have also examined every stable
and outhouse In Tavistock, and for a radius
of ten miles."
"There is another training stable quite
close, I understand?"
"Yes, and that Is a factor which we must
certainly not neglect. As Desborough, their
horse, was second In the betting, they
bad an Interest In the disappearance of the
favorite. Silas Brown, the trainer, is known
to have had large bets upon the event,
and he was no friend of poor Straker. We
have, however, examined the stables, and
there la nothing to connect him with the
"And nothing to connect this man Simp
eon with the interests of the Mapleton
'Nothing at all."
Holmes Waned back In the carriage, and
the conversation ceased. A few minutes
later our driver pulled up at a neat little
red brick villa with overhanging eaves
which stood by the road. Some distance
off, across the paddock, lay a long gray
tiled out-bulldlng. In every other direc
tion the low curves of the moor, bronze
colored from the fading ferns, stretched
away to the sky-line, broken only by the
steeples of Tavistock, and by a cluster of
houses away to the westward which marked
the Mapleton stables. We all sprang out
with the exception of Holmes, who con
tinued to lean back with his eyes fixed
upon the Bky In front of him, entirely ab
sorbed In hla own thoughts. It was only
when I touched his arm that he roused him
self with a violent start and stepped out
of the carriage.
"Excuse me." said he, turning to Colonel
Ross, who had looked at him in some sur
prise. "I was day dreaming." There was
a gleam In his eyes and a suppressed ex
oltenient In his manner which convinced
me, used as I was to his ways, that his
hand waa upon a clue, though I could not
Imagine where he had found it.
"Perhaps you would prefer at once to go
on to the scene of the crime, Mr. Holmes?"
"I think that I should prefer to stay
here a little and go Into one or two ques
tions In detail. Straker was brought back
here. 1 presume?"
"Yes. He lies upstairs. The Inquest Is
