The Boscombe Pool is thicklywooded round, with just a fringe of grass and of reeds round theedge. McCarthy was the only man alivewho had known dad in the old days in Victoria. There is as much sense in Hafiz as in Horace, and as muchknowledge of the world. It has been a case of considerable interest, he remarked,returning to his natural manner. Ifever circumstantial evidence pointed to a criminal it does sohere. That fellow willrise from crime to crime until he does something very bad, andends on a gallows. This is not such apopulous neighbourhood. Quite so; at the gold-mines, where, as I understand, Mr. Iknew the firm for which this man worked.

We have got to the deductions and the inferences, saidLestrade, winking at me. Windibank sprang out of his chair and picked up his hat. The case is asplain as a pikestaff, and the more one goes into it the plainerit becomes. Dont you see that you alternately give himcredit for having too much imagination and too little?
