CHAPTER VI Continued.
After a very brief pause the deteo
Uce continued'
"Of course, after that there was
nothing more to be done. I found out
where Lieutenant Charpentier was,
took two officers wtth me and arrested
him. When I touched him on the
shoulder and warned him to come
quietly wtth us, he answered us as
bold as brass: I suppose you are
arresting me for being concerned In
the death of that Bcoundrel Drebber,'
he said. We had said nothing; to him
about it, so that his alluding to It had
a most suspicious aspect."
"Very," said Holmes.
"He still carried the heavy stick
which the mother described htm as
having; with him when he followed
Drebber. It was a 6tout oak cudgel."
"What is your theory, then?"
"Well my theory Is that he followed
Drebber as far as the Brixton road.
When there a fresh altercation arose
between them. In the course of wWch
Drebber received a blow from the
stick in the pit of the stomach, per
haps, which killed htm without leav
ing; any mark. The night was so wet
that no one was about, so Charpentier
drssTfcd the body of his victim into
t)if empty house. As to the candle
and tho blood and the writing: on tho
wall and the rinse, they may all be so
many tricks to throw the police on to
the wrong scent.
"Well done!" said Holmes In an en
couraging voice. "Really, Gregson
you are getting along. We shaU make
something of you yet. -"I
flatter myself that I have man
aeed it rather neatly." the detective
answered proudly. -The young man
volunteered a statement in which he
said that after following Drebber
some time, the latter perceived him
and took a cab in order to get away
from him. On his way home he met
an old shipmate and took a long walk
with him. On being asked where this
old shipmate lived, he was unable to
give any satisfactory reply. I thin
the whole case fits together uncom
monly well. What amuses me is to
think of Lestrade, who had started off
upon the wrong scent. I am afraid he
won't make much of it. Why. by Jove
here's the very man himself!"
It was. indeed, Lestrade, who "had
ascended the stairs while we were
talking, and who now entered the
room. The assurance and Jauntlness
which generally marked his demeanor
and dress were, however wanting.
His face was disturbed and trou
bled, while his clothes were disar
ranged and untidy.
He had evidently come with the in
tention of consulting with Sherlock
Holmes., for on perceiving his col
league he appeared to be embarrassed
and put out.
He stood in the center of the roqjn.
fumbling nervously with his hat, and
uncertain what to do.
"This is a most extraordinary case,"
he said, at last "a most incompre
hensible affair."
"Ah. you find it so. Mr. Lestrade?"
cried Gregson. triumphantly.
ihousht you would come to that con
clusion. Have you managed to find the
secretary, Mr. Joseph Stangerson?"
"The secretary, Mr. Joseph Stanger
son, said Lestrade, gravely, wns
murdered at Halliday's Private Hotel
about 6 o'clock this morning."
Light In the Darkness.
The Intelligence with which Lestrade
greeted us was so momentous and so
unexpected that we were all three fair-
ly dumfounded.

Stangerson, too!" he muttered
"The plot thickens"
"It was quite thick enough before."
grumbled Lestrade, taking a chair. "I
seem to have dropped into a sort of
council of war.
"Are you are you sure of this piece
of Intelligence? stammered Gregson.
"I have just come from his room.1
said Lestrade. "I was the first to dis
cover what had occurred."
"We have been hearing Gregson's
view of tne matter," Holmes observed
"would you mind letting us know
what you have seen and done?"
"I have no objection," Lestrade an
swered, seating himself. "I freely con
fess that I was of the opinion that
Stangerson was concerned In the death
of Drebber. This fresh development
has shown me that I was completely
mistaken. Full of the one idea. I set
myself to find out what had become
of. the secretary. They had been seen
together at Euston Station about half
past eight on the evening of the third.
At two in the morning Drebber had
been found In the Brixton Road. The
question which confronted me was to
find out how Stangerson had been em
ployed between 8:30 and the time of
the crime and what had become of him
afterward. I telegraphed to Liverpool,
giving a description of the. man and
warning them to keep a watch upon
the American boats. I then set to work
calling upon all the hotels and lodging
houses In the vicinity of Euston. Yon
see. I argued that if Drebber and his
companion had become separated the
natural course of the latter would be
to put up somewhere In the vicinity for
the night and then hang about the
station again next morning."
"They would he likely to agree on
some meeting-place Derorenana, re
marked Holmes.
"So it proved. I spent the whole of
yesterday evening In making inquiries
entirely without avail. This morning
I began very early, and at eight o'clock
I reached Halliday's Private Hotel, ir
Little George street. On .my Inquiry
as to whether a Mr. Stangerson was
living there, they an once answered me
In the affirmative.
"No doubt you are the gentleman
he was expecting,' they said. 'He had
been waiting for a gentleman for two
" 'Where is he now?' I asked.
" 'He Is upstairs in bed. He wished
to be called at nine.'
"It seemed to me that my sudden
appearance might shake his nerves
and lead him to say something un
guarded. The Boots volunteered to
show me the room; it was on the sec
ond floor, and there was a small cor
ridor leading up to it The Boots
pointed out the door to me, and was
about to go down stairs again, when I
saw something that .made me feel slck

sage and formed a little Dool alone
I gave
cry which brought the Boots back.
He nearly fainted when he saw it.
The door was locked on the Inside, but
we put our shoulders to It and knocked
it in. The window of the room was
open, and beside the wtndow, all hud
dled up. lay the body or a man in his
night-dress. He was quite dead, and
had ben for some time, for his limbs
were rigid and cold. when we turned
him over the Boots recognised him, at
once as being the same gentleman
who "had engaged th room under the
name of James Stangerson. The cause
of death was a dee? stab in the left
side, which must hive penetrated the
heart And now comes the strangest
part of the affair. What do yon sup

I felt a creeping or nesti and a pro-
sentiment of comlur horror, even be

awstruck voice; vnd we were all

Sherlock HoVs sprang from his

"Mv case Is comlete."
The two detetives stared at him In
amazement i
"I have nowin my hands." my com

"Now, would you mind going down and
fetching that poor little devil of a ter
rier which has been bad so long, and
which the landlady wanted you to put
out of Its I a yesterday?'! .
I went downstairs and carried the
dog upstairs In my arms, Its labored
breathing ani glazing eye showed that
it was not far from its end.
Indeed. Its snow white muzzle pro
claimed that it had already exceeded
the usual term, of canine existence. I
placed It upon a cushion on the rug.
"I will now cut one of these pills In
two," said Holmes, and drawing his
penknife, he stited the action to the
word. "One half we return Into the
box for future purposes. The other half

will find in time that is has everything

and on presenting it to the dog you will
find that he laps It up readily enough."
As he spoke he turned the contents
of the wine glass Into a saucer and
placed It In front of the terrlor, who
speedily licked It dry.
Sherlock Holmes' earnest demeanor
had so far convinced us that we all sat
In silence, watching the animal Intent

None such appeared, however. The
dog continued to He stretched upon the
cushion, breathing In a labored way,

Holmes had taken out his watch, and
as minute followed minute without re
sult, an expression of the utmost cha-
the skirting at the other side,
grin and disappointment appeared nv
on nis roaturei.
He cnawed his Hp, drummed his An
Iters upon the table and showed every
other symptom of acute Impatience.
So great was his emotion that I felt
sincerely sorry for him. while the two
detectives smiled derisively, by no
means displeased at this check which
he had met
"It cant be coincidence," he cried
at last, springing from his chair and
pacing wildly up and down the room:
i "it Is Impossible that Is should be a
mere coincidence. The very plus

What can It mean? Surely my whole

With a perfect shriek of deltght
he rushed to the hot, cut the other pill
In two. dissolved It. added milk, and
presented it to the terrier.
The unfortunate creature's tongue
hardly seemed to have been moistened
In It before It gave a convulsive shiver
In every limb, and lay as rigid and life
less as If It had been struck by lightning-.
Sherlock Holmes drew a long breath
and wiped the perspiration from his

proves to be capable of bearing some

poison and the other was entirely
harmless. I ought to have known thai

This last statement appeared to me
to be so startling that I could hardly
believe that he was In his sober senses.
There was the dead dog. however, to
prove that his conjecture had been cor
rect It seemed to me that the mists In
my own mind were gradually clearing
away, and I began to have a dim,
vague perception of the truth.
"All this seems strange to you." con
tinued Holmes, "because you failed at
the beginning of the Inquiry to grasp
the Importance of the single real clew
which was presented to you. I had
the good fortune to seise upon that,
