waiting for the chance to start trouble. On top of this, Russia is seeking the chance of picking a quarrel with her twin neighbour Austria-Hungary. Now, my good young man," the Foreign Minister continued seriously, " there is a lot more in this than is evident at the first glance. If Russia went to war against Austria, France would be compelled to help her, Germany would be forced to back up Austria and Europe would be in flames ! As I said, all they want is the excuse. And they are preparing that excuse now."
Royston looked hard at the great man while he was talking. What on earth had this to do with him ?
" Yes," nodded Sir Edmund, taking up his tale once more, " Serbia is to be sacrificed to the cause. Perhaps you may wonder why we are interesting ourselves in all this ? Well, we fear that if France goes to war, England may be dragged in to support her. For this reason we must do our best to prevent the horrible thing they are planning. It must never happen! "

You must prevent that murder from taking place. The review is to be held next week, so you have plenty of time to go over and join with our own men on the spot."
Royston looked in amazement at the Foreign Minister.
" But how on earth am I to do that ?" he gasped.
" You will be the bearer of a certain offer from our Government to these two men," began Sir Edmund. " I cannot tell you whether it will succeed. All I can say is that if this horrible affair happens, Europe will be plunged into bloodshed, and Britain will not be able to stay out of it. You must save the situation
