Dancing Men Alphabet by KaizokuShojo Dancing Men Alphabet by KaizokuShojo
This is a little paint file of the alphabet for the secret code from "The Adventure of the Dancing Men," a Sherlock Holmes case. I know, several letters are missing. But I didn't see them given in the story...but this is a nice little resource none the less. Use it if you like...or whatever.

Do the flags that represent the start of a new word appear on the last letter of the old word or the first letter of the new?

It's the last letter of the old word. :)
Like,
"Be at Perry's," would have the flag on the e, t, and s. ^^

Cheers. I didn't have my book with me at the time so couldn't look it up and was using the dancing men in a surrealist film. Thanks for your help :)

Nice! Thanks for posting this.

Recently I was watching something, I forget what, and there was a flash of some drawing, totally unrelated to Holmes, but I had just been watching "The Dancing Men" and I thought I was seeing the symbols and I freaked out! XD

(Cute new icon~X3)

Well, this man had married a woman from America, and they were both very happy, etc. But one day, this thing appeared--written in chalk--on one of the walls, and it was these 'dancing men'. When the wife saw it, she became deathly frightened, though the husband was completely baffled. The wife then played it off as nothing, and told him to ignore it, but as time went on, MORE of these images started turning up. The wife had made the husband promise not to talk with her about it or worry, but he went to Mr. Holmes to have him look into it. 83
Well, Holmes broke the cipher, etc, found a disturbing message, went down (or up, can't remember) to the person's home to warn him....and found a disturbing scene. That's all I'll say. X3

(Thankies~ Zoro's so adorable. XD)

Wow... O_O That's a pretty scary, but awesome way of murdering someone. Awesome in the mildly freaky sense. >_> -cough-

Well, I suppose it sounds really freaky. xD
The story's great, though. I love when Mr. Holmes gets off the train and after he tells the the (I think it was the cabby, anyways) cabby to go to the person's house, the cabby says something like, "Oh, you're the surgeons, eh?"
And Holmes is like, "No, why? What's happened?"
And the man and wife had been shot. 8o

It's a cryptogram. The symbols stand for letters, and if the person who sees the symbols together is familiar with it, they can decipher it.
