_I. -- Maddened by Mystery: or, The Defective Detective_

THE great detective sat in his office. He wore a long green
gown and half a dozen secret badges pinned to the outside of it.

Three or four pairs of false whiskers hung on a whisker-stand
beside him.

Goggles, blue spectacles and motor glasses lay within easy reach.
