Find the cane's owner.

Frogwares' newest title, Sherlock Holmes Chapter One, gives players something that they haven't yet seen in a Holmes game—an open world. The island of Cordona is populated with intriguing characters and dozens of side-cases to keep you busy. Among these cases, your companion Jon will attempt to liven the mood with a series of Jon's Challenges, and depending on your skills; you can win or lose. 

The first Jon Challenge serves as a portion of the game's tutorial and comes in the form of Jon's Bet, where he will challenge Sherlock to identify the owner of a cane that's been left behind. To win Jon's Bet, start by examining the cane on the table.
