He would see him! He had an introduction from Prince Gustave that would carry him past the strictest `major domo,' and he decided to put it into use at once. The Grand Duke was approachable now, but in a week or so he would be proclaimed King ; and from that moment there would be no more chance of seeing him upon such matters as Royston wished to discuss.

Almost immediately he was shown into a fine apartment overlooking the great Square before the Palace. Here, from these windows, could be seen all that went on in the comings and goings of Royalty ; from these windows could be heard joyful cries and cheers from time to time, as the Queen passed by on the affairs of State ; from these windows, there could stand-and see it all slip by his grasp-one who might have been the centre of all this pageantry and power ! These thoughts were passing through Royston's mind as he waited the coming interview. He wondered
