'At the time the murder was committed, I was travelling on the 8 o'clock train to London,' said the man.

'Do you always catch such an early train?' asked the inspector.

'Of course I do,' answered the man. 'I must be at work at 10 o'clock. My employer will confirm that I was there on time.'

'Would a later train get you to work on time?' asked the inspector.

'I suppose it would, but I never catch a later train.'

'At what time did you arrive at the station?'

'At ten to eight. I bought a paper and waited for the train.'

'And you didn't notice anything unusual?'

'Of course not.'

'I suggest,' said the inspector, 'that you are not telling the truth. I suggest that you did not catch the 8 o'clock train, but that you caught the 8.25 which would still get you to work on time. You see, on the morning of the murder, the 8 o'clock train did not run at all. It broke down at Ferngreen station and was taken off the line.'

"在凶杀发生的时候,我正坐在八点的火车去伦敦,"那人说。"你总是赶这样早的火车?"探长问。"当然是的,"那人回答。"我必须在十点上班。我的雇主会证明我是按时到了那儿的。""晚点的火车能让你准时上班吗?"探长问。"我认为可以,但我从来不坐晚一班火车。""你什么时候到达车站的?"在十至八。我买了一份报纸,等着车来。""您没有注意到有什么异常的事吗?"当然不是。"我建议,"探长说,"您讲的不是实话。我认为你没有赶上八点的火车,但你赶上了8.25,仍然会让你的工作时间。你看,在凶杀发生的那天早晨,八点的火车根本就没有走。它在芬格林站故障而被取消了。"
