CHAPTER XXIV - ROYSTON GOES ABROAD

somehow. Take carte blanche. To-day is June 25th -the review is early next month. Now go ahead and for Heaven's sake save us. ..."
Royston was turning all this over in his mind as he sat in the express. It was now nearly two days since it had all happened, and he had not formed any sort of a plan yet. Everything depended on whether he could get in touch with the assassins in time-a very delicate business in any circumstances-much less now ! To-morrow night ought to find him at Serajevo, and then his anxious work would really begin. He hated travelling. It was mid-summer, and the heat on the train to-day was almost unbearable. He had been alone all the way from Milan ; and it was only when he changed trains at Trieste that he met with any company.
There were a couple of hours to waste at Trieste waiting his connection, and he put in the time by walking over to a delightful cafe just opposite the station, which he had visited several times before.
The long drink they served him was delightfully cooling, and as the ice tinkled musically against the fine glass of the crystal goblet, he felt at peace with the world. The result was that he nearly forgot the train. About seven minutes before it was scheduled to depart, he made a frantic dive for the barrier. Fortunately he had left his kit with a man and told him to be ready at the train, so he had not that to worry over. But he grew very anxious when he arrived at the train and failed to recognise his porter. The preliminary bell had already rung and the engine gave a warning whistle. All at once he felt a touch on his arm. There was a very shabby-looking man at his side. Lifting his hat from his head he spoke in Italian.
" Your Excellency's luggage is on the train. I took the liberty of choosing a coach when your Excellency was so late."
