EMPT: The empty house across the street from Baker Street: Location from which Colonel Moran attempted to assassinate Holmes, and where Holmes caught him.
Holmes:"I wonder that my very simple stratagem could deceive so old a shikari. It must be very familiar to you. Have you not tethered a young kid under a tree, lain above it with your rifle, and waited for the bait to bring up your tiger? This empty house is my tree, and you are my tiger."
