John Harland is a former boxer turned reverend posted to the town of Kangaroo. He falls in love with Muriel, an orphaned heiress, and discovers that her guardian Martin Giles is embezzling her inheritance. Harland earns the ire of parishioners by teaching young boys to box, and Giles manipulates local opinion to have the bishop remove him. Harland rescues a gentleman from a mugging in Sydney who suggests that he go to Kalmaroo where a criminal gang has driven the church out of the area. Harland preaches, and unexpectedly sees Muriel in the congregation; her property is near Kalmaroo. But her overseer is Red Jack Braggan who leads the gang which violently breaks up Harland's mission - much to the distress of Muriel who regards Harland as too timid - and is in cahoots with Giles. Harland goes to work as a station hand at a property neighbouring Muriel's. Giles arranges for Red Jack to kidnap Muriel so that he might marry the girl and thus prevent her giving evidence against him. Harland rescues Muriel: they leap from the stage coach as it thunders across Hampden Bridge into the Kangaroo River.

Billy Packard is a successful real estate dealer, and to his office comes Professor Tonson, who is desirous of getting a suitable location to establish a colony where he intends to work out his theories of restoring health. The professor's discovery is not of the nutriment of the peanut. Billy tells the professor of a site near the ocean, and after luncheon the two repair to seaside to look over the location. The professor is satisfied, and he establishes his colony. Beulah, his daughter, is a great help to him. The patients are dressed uniformly, the chief article of apparel being a sack-shaped outer garment. The diet consists mainly of beans and peanuts. In addition to the diet and fresh air, the patients are frequently treated to an open-air lecture by the professor. One day Billy goes to pay the professor a visit. He meets Beulah and the two see much in each other to admire. After a dip in the surf, Billy proposes, but the girl tells him that it is too sudden, and that if he would be accepted he must settle down in the colony. Billy cannot live on beans and peanuts, so he returns home. But thoughts of the girl persist in coming to his mind. He finally decides that she is worth the sacrifice. He hurries to her and is elected a regular member of the colony. After the marriage, the new convert is made guardian of the beans. For three or four days Billy consumes the colony diet, but at last it becomes too much for him. One day he is about to give up and return to the city, when he discovers a box of cigarettes and some matches. The soothing tobacco causes him to forget some of the drawbacks of his position and he decides to make another attempt. Each morning the colony takes a bath in the ocean before sunrise. When the day is clear it is not so bad, but one foggy morning Billy tries to avoid the ordeal. He is finally made to obey the rules by Beulah. After a cold plunge and the meager meal of beans which follows, Billy loses all control of himself, and that afternoon things come to a climax. The professor often interests his pupils with a revelation of things which are to come, and Billy tells the professor that he is going to have a revelation. It is that Beulah and he, Billy, must return to the city, and he mentions that said revelation would be worth five hundred dollars to him. The next morning, during the lecture, the revelation is announced. Beulah is much surprised, but never hesitates to believe what her father says, and the two arrange to go to the city. Billy tries to sample every bill-of-fare in town, and absolutely refuses to have beans anywhere near him. It is Beulah's first trip to the city and she is in a continual state of happiness. Billy finally tells Beulah of his scheme to get back to the city and have a real meal. It is a great surprise to Beulah, but Billy manages to comfort her and tells her that they will go back to the colony. The deserters return and Billy now has an understanding with the professor that as long as he can keep the other patients from seeing him, he can indulge in anything he likes.

Roger Darrell, a chauffeur for …
Roger Darrell, a chauffeur for the wealthy Frank Carrington, is a perfect servant. Courteous at all times, he only spoke when spoken to, and Sylvia Carrington, the daughter of the rich man, frequently found cause for resentment because of this fact. Sylvia had taken quite an interest in Darrell in an impersonal way. One day as Sylvia is being taken for a drive by Darrell she reprimands him for not knowing she is hungry. Darrell then suggests that he will take her to a nearby inn. Sylvia tells him that she has never entered a restaurant alone and asks him to take dinner with her. Darrell consents, and the moment Darrell removes his cap and gloves he is transformed from the perfect employee to a perfect gentleman. During the dinner Sylvia's interest has grown, and as the two start to leave the inn Darrell helps her on with her coat. She thanks him for being so good to her and her nearness makes Darrell forget himself and he stoops and kisses her. The drive home is a silent one, and as Sylvia leaves the car Darrell shows his repentance and he tells her that he shall leave her service. That evening Sylvia astounds her father with the news that she is going to be married to Roger Darrell. Carrington tells her that he will talk the matter over with Darrell. Sylvia then tells of Darrell having kissed her and when the father says he will send for Darrell, Sylvia states that the young man does not know of the marriage arrangements, as he has not spoken to her about it, but intends leaving their service. Carrington sends for Darrell. Sylvia pleads with her father to remain in the room and to hear their conversation and finally persuades him to allow her to hide in the adjoining alcove. She is wearing a rose-colored scarf and as she draws behind the curtains the scarf slips from her shoulders and falls to the floor. Darrell comes into the room and after a short conversation Carrington is surprised at his gentlemanly bearing. Carrington then asks the young man whether his attitude will be one of business or sentiment, and Darrell tells him that they can leave the business question out of the discussion. The father then states that he will not stand in the way of the young people if he can support her in the manner to which she has been accustomed. Sylvia, in her hiding place, is elated over the way Darrell is conducting himself. Darrell studies deeply what Carrington has said, and then frankly informs him that he cannot support the girl in the way she has been raised. Sylvia springs up and with blazing eyes confronts Darrell. Then she darts out of the room. As soon as she leaves Darrell's face shows the effect of his confession and he tells her father that what he said was a lie; that he really loves the girl and states why he made the statement, knowing that she would hear it. Darrell leaves, and as he starts out of the door finds a fragment of the rose-colored scarf, which has become torn off. He puts this in his pocket as he goes. Carrington is a man of common sense. He tells Sylvia of Darrell's confession, and Sylvia, happy, begs her father to recall him. Carrington tells her that it is too late, that pride will stand between them, and Darrell leaves their service that night. Two months later Darrell calls at a lawyer's office in response to a startling request. There he is informed that from the estate of a former relative he is given the sum of $50,000. Before leaving the lawyer asks him if he will now set out in quest of that which he most desires, and Darrell tells him that there is nothing he desires. The lawyer shows he is disappointed at the answer. With the passing of time Darrell reaches the station which heritage had always meant for him, and still he carries the fragment of the rose-colored scarf to remind him of what might have been. A certain table at the well-known inn has become dear to Sylvia as a memory during this time. Although Darrell has made it a point to dine at this same inn frequently. Fate has kept the two apart. As Darrell is leaving one day he comes face to face with Sylvia and the repetition of their last meeting comes to his mind. Darrell tells her that he must talk to her and when she tries to pass he forcibly detains her. He tells her that he has waited for two years to say one thing to her and Sylvia laughs at this explanation and unthinkingly tells him that he told the lawyer he had nothing at heart for which he wished. She catches herself, but too late. Darrell realizes where his unexpected inheritance has come from. She confesses that her father told her the truth about his statements and that she had divided her fortune with him in the hope that he would seek her out, being able to give her the things she had been used to. Their misunderstandings are past and regardless of the public place in which they are Darrell takes her happily in his arms.

Obscured by modesty and the ethics of the old school, old Doctor Jones, a master of his profession, pursues his practice in the village of Condon. A shunner of publicity and fame, his wife's work is wrapped up in promoting the welfare of his fellow-beings. Blackie, Jones' old horse, occupies a warm spot in the old man's heart. Richard Carleton, a young doctor, just starting out on a career, arrives in Condon with a view to locating there. He bears a letter to John Emerson, Condon's most influential citizen. Carleton meets Enid, Emerson's daughter, and a mutual affection springs up between them. The advent of a brother doctor is welcome news to Jones, as the increasing practice has become too much for one of his years. Jones pledges his friendship and assistance to the young doctor, a snobbish type, believing himself above all, and curbs his good intentions. In order that the outside world may benefit by his genius, Jones is a contributor to the leading medical journals, but will not permit the use of his name, using the non de plume of "Old School," and Carleton little realizes that the man whom he regards as a "has been" is the author of articles which have startled the medical world, and which the leading specialists have learned to look to for solution of knotty medical problems. Emerson takes a liking to Carleton and establishes him in an elaborate office. Slowly the remunerative patients, impressed by Carleton's fine office and up-to-date methods, go over to him, while to Jones falls the lot of caring for the non-payers, who are not welcome at Carleton's office. Poverty descends upon the old doctor but he is too proud to admit it. By self-denial, Jones manages to keep his wife and Blackie from want, and this is his contentment. The friendship of Carleton and Enid ripens into love and they become engaged. To Emerson, the happiness of his daughter means everything, and as he has always looked to Jones for council on weighty matters, goes to him to ask his opinion as to Carleton's worthiness. Even though he has been ridiculed and insulted by Carleton, Jones, who can think badly of no one, gives him a clean slate. In the midst of a reception attendant upon the announcement of her engagement to Carleton, Enid is suddenly stricken. Carleton's petty skill is inadequate to combat the case, but he is unwilling to admit his incompetence. He scorns Jones' offer of assistance, and as Enid steadily grows worse, and he is forced to admit his helplessness, he sends to Cleveland for two eminent specialists. A consultation discloses that an operation is the only hope, but the case puzzles even the specialists and they hesitate. Happening to rest his eyes on one of the "Old School" articles in the medical journal, Warren, one of the specialists, advises, as a last recourse, that they attempt to secure the aid of the contributor. Emerson places his wealth at their disposal, to take any steps in order to save his daughter. A telegram is sent to the editor of the journal, who, in answer, refers them to Jones. The master hand of the old doctor is successful in staving off death and the incident is the means of joining together the practices of the old and the young doctors.

A man with a bullseye lantern moves about the room, and Von Ludwig, seated in his den, hears the noise, takes his gun and starts down to investigate. The figure hears footsteps and, grasping a chair, crashes the window, and then secretes himself behind the curtain, just as Von Ludwig enters and switches on the light. The man hiding behind the curtains steps forward and accidentally, apparently, knocks over a pedestal. With an oath, Von Ludwig grasps his gun and leads the man out. The man, frightened, pleads for mercy. Von Ludwig catches sight of the time, one minute to twelve, and conceives the idea of forcing the man to rob Hartzburg of the papers. In return Von Ludwig offers him his freedom. The man consents, finds Hartzburg, fights him and obtains the papers. He returns, and as Von Ludwig starts to take them, he pulls his gun and blows a whistle. Two men from outside enter. The "burglar" takes the papers and reveals himself as John Matthews, of the secret service. Then "Matthews," with an elaborate bow, picks up the papers and prepares to leave.

Joseph Bohn, ex-sheriff of Gray Gulch, Arizona, makes his home with his daughter and her husband a miner. Noticing the growing indifference on the part of the young wife towards her husband and being a man of experience, the ex-sheriff defines the cause. The husband, who finds his affectionate advances toward his wife repulsed, leaves tor his work at the mine. The sheriff, overhearing his daughter making an appointment with David Morton, who possesses better looks and manners than her plain working husband, follows her to the meeting place and confronts the man, gun in hand. He orders him to leave. Taking his daughter back to the little cabin, he sits down with her beside the open fire and remonstrates with her, knowing that she is just an innocent-hearted western girl with really no idea of evil, to bring her to her senses and relates to her the story of his early life and experiences. When sheriff of Gray Gulch, he gets home to his wife one day to find that she has offered hospitality to a man who is badly battered up and seems to be in unfortunate circumstances. Together they nurse the man to convalescence. The sheriff receives a letter from the Kansas City authorities warning him concerning an artist who has become a forger of bank notes and further stating a picture and description will follow later. He does not connect this criminal with the man he is keeping at his house, although he knows the latter is an artist. The friendship between the sheriff's wife and the artist grows. He paints her picture often and the husband little realizes the affection their constant association leads to. Later he receives the description and photograph of the man wanted and it is then he realizes the man he has been keeping at his house and who they had nursed back to health, is none other than the criminal in question. He charged the man with the crime and shows him the photograph and description and takes him into custody. That night the wife leaves a note to her husband stating that she loves the imprisoned man. Taking the keys to the jail from his pocket and packing up a few belongings, she goes to the jail and frees the man, Edward Boyle. Next morning the sheriff discovers the state of affairs and sets out in pursuit, determined to capture the man at all costs. The erring wife has taken with her her small child. The water supply is nearly exhausted and she begs some from the man. He refuses it to her. A struggle ensues between them for possession of the small remaining water supply, in which the woman is able to knock him down in his weakened condition. In falling he strikes his head against the wheel of the wagon in which they are traveling and is rendered unconscious. The sheriff's wife stumbles over the satchel in which she has brought her belongings and discovers therein the handcuffs taken from the man by her in the jail, and which she had inadvertently put into the handbag. Realizing that, should the man recover consciousness, he will cause her further trouble, she handcuffs him to the wagon wheel. She then goes to give water to her baby, but discovers that the canteen is entirely empty. Facing death for herself and baby, she becomes demented and wanders out across the desert. The sheriff, meanwhile, closely following the trail, comes upon the deserted wagon and finds his man handcuffed to the wheel, dead. He takes up the trail of his wife, and, following it some distance, comes upon her body. She, likewise, has succumbed to the desert thirst, but the baby is alive. He takes the child in his arms and, as the story closes, the old sheriff turns to his daughter and kindly tells her that she was that child. Suddenly they hear a noise outside. It is the husband, who has returned from his work and is cleaning quietly the mire from his shoes. The wife goes to him, throws her arms about his neck and weeps. The husband is at a loss to know the reason for this but the old men tells him it is all right.

King Louis XI of France is beset with the idea that his uncle, …
King Louis XI of France is beset with the idea that his uncle, the aged King Rene, is trafficking with England and Burgundy against the French throne. So well has Francois Villon served his royal master that Louis sends him to Rene's court, there to either realize or set at rest the suspicion. The poet-ambassador obeys the will of Louis and soon convinces himself that the French king's suspicion is unwarranted. His diplomatic business being at an end, Villon lingers to enjoy himself at Rene's court. Guests of King Rene are the Duke and the Duchess De Breuil. The young Duchess, charmed with Villon's poetry, draws the susceptible poet into a mild flirtation. Her husband, the Duke, discovers Villon and the Duchess in the garden. The Duke his anger getting the better of his good judgment, insults Villon and hurls his gage at the feet of the poet. The action takes place before King Rene, who, while regretting that the quarrel has been forced upon Villon, tells the poet that the lists are at his service. Villon is no fighter, nor is he a coward; he prefers a battle of wits rather than a battle with swords. To save his face, Villon picks up the Duke's glove and with it lightly assaults its owner, then claims protection on the plea that a vow prevents his indulging in an assault at arms. To further fortify himself against such a possibility the poet requests that the king set him some knightly task, that life may be saved. The request pleases the aged monarch. Thought immediately comes to him concerning one John Ballue, a man of great cruelty, of whom it is known that his prisoners, having once gotten into his clutches, never escape, each prisoner being confined in a narrow box, to which there are no keys. The King informs Villon that he, accompanied by the Duke De Breuil, shall go to Anjou and pit themselves against John Ballue. The Duke, knowing the history of Ballue, refuses. Villon sneers at the Duke, then accepts the King's mission. We next find Villon at the palace of John Ballue, measuring his wits against those of the jailer. Villon wins the mental battle, succeeds in shutting Ballue into one of his own boxes and liberates the prisoners. En route to Rene's court, Villon is foolish enough to offer Ballue an opportunity to fight for his life. Once out of the box the crafty prisoner makes good his escape. Humiliated and fearing the wrath of Rene and the ridicule of Louis XI, Villon bids the released prisoners go their various ways then seeks out the camp of his vagabond friends. Here we leave him, though not for long, for it is known that the French king, after three years, sought him out and raised him to a dignity greater than that which he enjoyed prior to his return into Vagabondia.
