The Hunt Ball Mystery by Sir William Magnay
http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/10029

gifford and kelson are on their way into the country side when two desasters occur to them> first, kelson finds out his suitcase was not unloaded from the train and is on its way to the next station, which is terrible as they have made the journey to attend a ball which is naturally impossible without proper evening dress. and secondly, they find out that a stranger is insisting on sharing their carriage. they have bespoke a hotel carriage, and the stranger is not going to get out so they are forced into companionship for the journey of a mile.

the ball is a peculiar affair, as it is given by the people who bought the old family estate of the giffords. but not only the ladies attending this ball divert the two gentlemen, but especially the discovery of a large bloodstain.
