Embed Size px x x x x Dr Thorneycroft Huxtable came to see Sherlock Holmes and Watson and told them about kidnapping of the son of the Duke of Holderness, one of the greatest and one of the richest men in the country, and offered them five thousand pounds for news of his son, and another one thousand pounds for the name of his kidnapper. Sherlock Holmes accepted the case and asked him to tell everything about kidnapping. Dr Huxtable began his story: My school is the best school for young boys in England, The Duke wanted to send his ten years old son to my school, on the 1st of May he arrived.
His life at home was not very happy; her mom, the Duchess, left the Duke and lives in the France now, but the boy loved his mother, and was very unhappy when she left.
Then, on the night of the 13th o May, he disappeared. We think he went out the windows and down the ivy to the ground. Heidegger, the German teacher, was missing too. He went down the ivy and took his bicycle with him. Then after some questions and answers they went off to the north. When they arrived at school, the Duke and his secretary was there.
After some conversations they left and Holmes started to work on the case. He said to Watson: Look at this map. The boy and the teacher didnt go along the road, because there was a police man and I spoke to him and he saw nobody on the road.
And there at the other end is the white horse inn and the family saw nobody neither. In the north we have the Ragged Shaw trees, and the Lowe Gill Moor, it is possible to ride a bicycle across the moor. Just then Dr Huxtable came quickly into the room and said: One of my gardeners found the boys hat in north of Ragged Shaw.
By six oclock they were through Ragged Shaw, and then they were on Lower Gill Moor, they found hundreds of the sheep tracks, and some cow tracks, and track of a bicycle. This tyre is a Dunlop, but Heideggers bicycle had palmer tyres. Holmes said. Later Holmes found the tracks of Palmer tyre.
For a kilometer they followed the Palmer tyre north across the moor. Suddenly, the track stopped. On one of the yellow flowers there was blood. They soon found the bicycle, and a body. It was the German teacher. Watson went and got the workman who was working there, and Holmes wrote a note for Dr Huxtable, gave that to workman and he began to run down the hill to Ragged Shaw.
Holmes said: lets think for a minute. First, the boy left freely. But the German teacher left without his socks, so he left suddenly. And why did he go? Because from his bedroom he saw the boy and maybe he wanted to bring him back. And Heidegger dies because someone hits him very hard on the head.
For now, the Palmer tyre can tell us nothing, so we must go back to the Dunlop tyre. They followed the Dunlop track and they lost it across the moor, they could now see Holderness Hall to left, and in front they could see the Chesterfield road.
They walked down to the Green Man Inn. They offered a pound, for use of a bicycle, to Mr. Hayes, an owner of the Inn, he said I havent got a bicycle! You can have two horses to take you to the Hall. Then they went out and had a look round the stables. There were two tired-looking horses in the stables. Holmes looked carefully at one of the horses feet. But suddenly they heard Mr. Hayes behind them. His face was red and angry. Holmes said: I think your horses are tired. We can walk to the Hall.
Its not far. It was nearly dark when day left. There was a bicycle on the road. They saw the rider Mr. Wilder, the Dukes secretary. They ran down the hill, and stopped when they could see the back door of the inn.
Wilders bicycle was by the wall near the door. Then the man on a horse rode quickly out of the stables and disappeared down the road, but he wasnt Wilder. They could see Wilder, and later another man came down the road and went into the inn.
Then a light came on in a room upstairs. Holmes had a look there and said nothing. Then he found that a bicycle had a Dunlop tyre. Then they walk back to the school, but Holmes went out to Mackleton.
At eleven oclock the next morning Holmes and Watson were in the Dukes office. Holmes said: Your son was last night at the Green Man Inn, and you are the kidnapper, I saw you with him last night.
The Duke opened his cheque book, and began to write. Are you and your friend going to talk about this? I mean nobody needs to know about this little family mystery. Look here is my cheque for twelve thousand pounds. Holmes said: Im sorry sir. There is a dead man in this case. But I have a little more news for you. The police met Mr. Hayes last night at Chesterfield station.
He is not running anywhere for a very long time Dukes said: That news can only help James. Your secretary? Said Holmes. No, James Wilder is my son. Duke said. The Duke stood up and said: When I was a young man, I was in love, I wanted her to be my wife, but she died. She left me this one child, and I loved him because of her. But a government minister cannot tell the world about a love, so to the world, James is my young secretary.
He wants to be a Duke of Holderness one day. Thats not possible, but James cant understand that. So he kidnaps my poor Arthur. James knew Hayes. James asked for his help. Hayes talked Arthur about Duchess, his mother. And said she was waiting on the moor. Poor Arthur wanted to see his mother, so he came. Hayes was there with two horses, and they rode across the moor.
But the German teacher followed them and Hayes killed him. So now, James is leaving me and going to Australia next week. We must bring Arthur home, and I wrote to Duchess this morning and asked her to back.
Holmes said: Well we can go home now, but Hayes took horses across the moor, but the horses feet made the tracks of cow.
How was this possible? Duke went away and came back with the box in his hands. In the box were some horses-shoes.
Holmes opened the box and took out the shoe. It was a shoe for a horses foot but it looked like a cloven cows foot. Then he smiled and took the cheque for twelve thousand pounds and put it into his notebook.

Holmes receives a visit from Dr. Thorneycroft Huxtable, the founder and principal of a preparatory school called Priory School in Northern England. He beseeches Holmes to come back to Mackleton with him to look into the disappearance of one of his pupils, the ten-year-old Lord Saltire, whose father is the very rich and famous Duke of Holdernesse. Huxtable explains that not only the boy has disappeared, but also the German master, Heidegger, along with his bicycle. Once in the North, the Duke says to Holmes that he does not think that his estranged wife has anything to do with his son's disappearance, nor has there been a ransom demand. Holmes establishes that the boy and his kidnappers could not have used the nearby road without being seen, suggesting that they went cross-country.
