In this way, how does Watson know that Barrymore is lying about his wife crying at night?

Barrymore says his wife did not cry, but Watson can see her eyes. In his first case without Sherlock Holmes, Watson is in over his head a bit. Watson is staying at the Hall, and he hears crying in the night. He tells them that he heard the “sob of a woman.” Barrymore says there are only two women in the house.

Additionally, how does Selden die in The Hound of the Baskervilles? He is later referred to as “one of the most notorious criminals in the country.” As a wanton fugitive already known to be capable of brutal murder, Selden serves as a red herring until he is killed while fleeing Jack Stapleton's hound.

In this way, who was Barrymore trying to signal with the candle at the window?

Watson sees Barrymore at a window with a candle in the middle of the night. Henry Baskerville comes to Sherlock Holmes when Charles Baskerville is murdered. Henry might be next.

How is Stapleton related to Sir Henry Baskerville?

Jack Stapleton is Sir Charles Baskerville's nephew and Sir Henry Baskerville's cousin. According to research undertaken by Sherlock Holmes, Stapleton's father left England for South America as a young man with a bad reputation. He was believed to have died, but instead, he married and had Jack, his only son.
