CHAPTER XXIV - ROYSTON GOES ABROAD

Royston ran after him, only too thankful to find his kit and catch the train. He was in such a rush and hurry that he did not even bother where the man had found his seat. It was only after he got sat down and had time to take stock, that he realised the man who had met him was not the one he had left his things with.
However, the seat was quite suitable-the only other occupant of the carriage being an elderly gentleman with white whiskers and hair, who appeared to be very frail. This old man had a valet with him, but he occupied a place further down the train, and only came in from time to time to see if his master needed him.
Royston was rather annoyed when he saw the sort of companion he was to have, all the rest of the way. It seemed quite obvious that there would be no chance of his being able to smoke his beloved pipe, unless he changed compartments.
However, it was getting close to dinner-time, and the night was advancing rapidly, so he decided not to bother just now. The carriage was really quite comfortable with only the two of them in it, and after all, one cannot have everything ! But just as he made up his mind to be patient about his pipe he got rather a shock.
" Excuse me," said the old man, in excellent English, " but if you want to smoke your pipe, please do not mind me-I'm quite used to it."
Royston was so surprised that he could hardly thank him. It certainly was a coincidence that he should say that !
" I feel it such a trial," went on the old man, who evidently was inclined to talk, " that I cannot smoke myself. But doctors are doctors-and I am getting rather old."
" But you enjoy the smell of smoke," laughed
