The Missing Three-Quarter
Holmes wakes Dr. Watson up early one morning, telling him a client has arrived, a young woman. Her name is Helen Stoner. She lives with her stepfather, Dr. Grimesby Roylott in Stoke Moran. When she and her sister Julia were only two her mother was killed in a railway accident. Despite this, they came to live with their father in the big mansion. Later, Julia became engaged, and was killed in her very own room on night before the upcoming wedding. The dying woman's words were: "The band! The speckled band!" Helen also tells Holmes that Roylott let a gypsy camp stay nearby. When Sherlock Holmes and Watson goes over to Stoke Moran to investigate, they observe that the bed in Helen’s new bedroom is unusually clamped to the floor, that there is no way to get into the bedroom, that there is a strange bell cord hung over the bed, and that the rope of the bell cord goes into the ventilator to the stepfather’s room. With this, Sherlock Holmes says that he has solved the case.
One Christmas, Dr Watson finds his friend Sherlock Holmes intensively studying a shabby looking hat. It turns out that a commissionaire named Peterson had witnessed a gang of roughs attack a drunken man in the street. Peterson had rushed forward to help the man but everyone in the group had ran off when they saw Peterson’s official uniform. The victim had dropped his hat and a Christmas goose when he ran. Peterson brought the items to Holmes who suggested that Peterson should take the goose home to eat while Holmes investigated the hat. A blue stone that turns out to be a very precious stone which had been lost for years had also been found in the crop of the goose. Holmes and Watson goes around town looking for the suspect that had stolen the blue stone and solves the mystery.
One day, while organizing his study, Holmes recounts to his friend Watson one of his very first cases, the Musgrave Ritual. Holmes' university acquintance, Reginald Musgrave, had come to visit Holmes after two of his domestic staff - Rachel Howells (a maid) and Richard Brunton (the longtime butler) - had dissapeared. These two had dissapeared after Musgrave had caught Bruntin secretly reading a family document - The Musgrave Ritual. With a several clues, Holmes had gone to the Musgrave's house to investigate and solve the case of how the butler had died.
When Watson convinces his friend Holmes to go on a vacation with him, the two friends go to the country to take a break from all the cases and investigations. However, during the vacation the local police comes to find Holmes to seek help on solving a mystery. The mystery begins with a robbery in one of the two biggest homes in the area and a mureder in the other. Holmes comes to a reasonably simple conclusion, and once again, solves the case.
