Sholto was a very particular friend of papa's/' she said, "fiislet* tars were full of allusions to the major. He afad papa Wefe in dommatld of the tf oops at the Andaman islands, so they were thf own a great deal together. By the way, a curious paper was found in papa's desk which ho one could linden stand. I don't suppose that it is of the slightest importance, but t thought you might care to see it, so I brought it with me. It is here." Holmes unfolded the paper carefully and smoothed it out upon his knee. He then ?ei»y methodically examined it all over with his double lens. "It is paper of native Indian manufacture," he remarked. "It has at some time been pinned to a board. Hie dia* gram upon it appears to be a plan of part of a large building with numerous halls, corridors, and passages. At one point is a small cross done in red ink, and above it is '3.37 from left,'in faded pencil-writing. In the left-hand corner is a curious hieroglyphic like four crosses in a line with their arms touching. Beside it is written, In very rough and coarse characters, "The sign of the four,-^Jonathen Small, Mahomet Singh, Abdullah Khan, Dost Akbar.' No, I confess that 1 do not see how •this bears upon the matter. Yet It is evidently a document of importance. It has been kepi carefully in a pocketbook; for the one side is as clean as the other." "It was in his pocketbook that we found it." . "Preserve it carefully, then, Miss t Morstan, for It may prove to be of use to us. I .begin to suspect that this matter may turn out to be much deeper and more subtle than I at first supposed. I must reconsider my ideas." He leaned back in the cab, and I could See by his drawn brow > and his vacant eye that he was thinking intently. iMiss Morstan and I chatted in an un, dertone about our present expedition and its possible outcome, but our companion maintained his impenetrable reserve until the end of our journey. It was a September evening, and not yet seven o'clock, but the day had been a dreary one, and a dense drizzling fog lay low upon the great city. - Mud- colored clouds drooped sadly over the. muddy streets. Down the Strand the lamps were but misty splotches of diffused light which threw a feeble circular glimmer upon the slimy pavement. The yellow glare from the shop- windows streamed out into the steamy, vaporous aJf, and threjw, a murky, L 'ting radiance acisbssthecrowded wJoughf are. There was to my mind something eerie and ghost-like in the endless procession of faces which flitted across these narrow bars of light—sad faces -and glad, haggard and merry. Like all human kind, they flitted from the gloom into the light, and so back into the gloom once more. I am not subject to impressions, but the dull, heavy evening, with the strange business, upon which we were engaged, combined to make me nervous and depressed. I could Bee from Miss Mor~ stan's manner that she was suffering from the same feeling. Holmes alone could rise superior tp.petty influences. He held his open notebook upon, his knee, and from time, to time he jotted down* figures and memoranda in the light of his pocket lantern. At the Lyceum theater the crowds were already thick at the side entrances. In front a continuous stream of hansoms and four-wheelers were rattling up, discharging their cargoes of shirt-fronted men and beshawled, bediamonded women. We had hardly reached the third pillar, which was our rendezvous, before a small, dark, brisk man in the dress of a coachman ac- .costed us, "Are you the parties who come with Miss Morstan?" he asked. "I am Miss Morstan, and these two gentlemen are iny friends," said she. „ He bent a pair of wonderfully penetrating and questioning eyes upon us., '•You will -ejcouse me, miss," he said, with a certain dogged manner, "but I w»s to ask you to give 'me your word that neither of your companions is a - police officer," "I give you my word on that," -she answered. - He gave ft shrill whistle, on which a str/eet Arab led across a fowwbeeler and opened the door, The roanyhp addressed us jnonn&d to the "b<?s, we tools our places inside, We bad;* hardly done so-before the driver whipped up bis horse, aw4 vre plunged away at a furious pace through *be situation wa§ a curious QR$. \y§ were driving t<? an unknown place, oa - aj| HBjmqwn errand, Yet our inrita* tien was either a complete boas*** wbieh was m UwQaee, iyabie hypptbfs|s •WQF eke we bo4 #QQ4 *•$&&<?» to, t^nk- that important issues might b»nff upp» WjouTBey, M|s 5 MsrsWi djjnean.oj- was as rs§pJwt£ and qgJlf 9^4 88 $YSF. -\l sedeayorsfl to, sheer; m$ aaw ber ejjceg gf njy ftd.Yen$«res, Jp, i bwt, to ttU the truth, j 9JtSfii^ QVOf as ta llot* To be voted Tuesday, Nov. 5, 1 895.
