Answer:  DEDUCTIONS

(Elementary, my dear word nerds!  Actually, if you weren’t familiar with the Sherlock Holmes stories/movies this might have stumped you some.  It was usually Dr. Watson who would compliment Sherlock with:  Brilliant deduction, Holmes!  Very entertaining stories.  Read them, if you get the chance.  Or, watch the numerous movie versions of them.  There were no new clue words today.  Stupid “updates” to Windows 10 made searching the ralis95 database a chore!  But, eventually, I managed.  All of the jumbles appear to be new.  The answer letter layout was a brilliant jumble, Hoyt!  It took me a couple of minutes to see the answer.  Fantastic cartoon.  It looks like it could be a still from one of the Rathbone and Nigel Bruce films of the early ’40s!  Nice job, guys.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
