Father made millions in pork, and was proud of the fact, but his society loving wife wanted to forget that there was ever such a thing as a pig. Consequently she sent her daughter Susan off to a finishing school where she absorbed a blasé manner. Father was anything hut pleased with the change. One day at the club father came in contact with "Speed" Cannon and was so impressed with the effect his presence had upon people, that he determined to try an experiment. He visits "Speed's" office and on a pretext gets him to his palatial home. As they arrive a burglar has terrorized its women occupants. "Speed" proves a hero, but Susan evinces only a passing interest. "Speed," however, is smitten with the languorous Susan, and welcomes the opportunity of seeing her again. "Speed's" courtship is as fast as he is himself. After two weeks he manages to smuggle Susan away from a reception in honor of Count Englantine. He secures her consent to their marriage, but she shows so little interest "Speed" is nonplussed. She is discovered by mother, who whisks her to the Count, who proposes. Susan puts him off. "Speed" again finds her and proposes that they elope. Susan thinks that would be romantic. Father lends his aid; but it is unavailing, for Susan is so slow that mother discovers her. "Speed" is all broken up, but father has a tip on the market, and his woes arc forgotten as he talks over the details with "Speed." Next day "Speed" starts father's stock movement. Susan dismisses the Count and writes "Speed," declaring her love. The maid gets the notes mixed. "Speed" is broken-hearted and sends an attendant for a gun, while the Count dashes to Susan. She quickly disillusions him and dashes in search for "Speed." She finds him in time to prevent his killing himself, with an empty gun. She whisks him back to the office. Father hikes to the office with a minister. Mother, becoming suspicious, visits the office where the ceremony is being performed. Father holds her long enough to have Susan and "Speed" married. Mother is sore until she learns father's fortune has been augmented and accepts "Speed" because he made it possible.

John Osborne, a power in …
John Osborne, a power in Wall Street, is the enemy of David Merrill, a broker. Osborne's daughter, Shelah, is the pride of his heart. Merrill has long desired to win the girl, but she has rejected his advances. He installs one of his clerks in Osborne's office, as a spy. Osborne plans a coup by which they hope to break Merrill's crowd, but when the trick is sprung, Merrill is ready and Osborne is forced to the wall. When all the debts are cleared, there is nothing left but a small plot of land in the West, and Shelah persuades her father to move out there to live. Shelah and her father are getting along all right when Merrill learns of their success. He takes up a note of Osborne's. Condon, a mining engineer, previously in love with Shelah, finds oil on Osborne's land. He meets Shelah and there is a reunion. Merrill arrives with the note and threatens to foreclose unless Osborne uses his influence with Shelah. Osborne pays the note, hiding the paper in the chimney. As he goes to place the stone back, he falls, and is paralyzed. Merrill sees the fall and realizes the hold he has over the girl. Believing he still holds the note, Shelah tells Condon she will have to marry his rival. Osborne tries to communicate with her, but without avail. Merrill discovers the indications of oil. Condon tries to raise money to pay off the note, but fails. The wedding night arrives and the weather is stormy. As Condon breaks in determined to stop the ceremony, a bolt of lightning strikes the house and the shock is so great Osborne is thrown from his chair. He rises and stammers, "There, third stone up," pointing to the chimney. Condon catches his meaning and finds the canceled note. Merrill is ordered from the house. Osborne has relapsed into paralysis, but his eyes glow with triumph over his defeat of Merrill. As the minister is still present, Condon persuades him to go on with the ceremony.

The whole Ardath family is …
The whole Ardath family is collected together to discuss the proposed marriage between Margaret and Robert Ogden, a British citizen. The consensus of opinion is that the match is desirable in every way. The old Colonel says that in case of war the children of such a match would make fine soldiers. This frightens Margaret, as all her life she has had a dislike for war. Dr. Ardath is on his way to an important conference and gets started on his favorite subject, the heart. He tells those present of a wonderful new drug that has been found by a Russian student who used it to depress the action of his heart to get out of military service and who, taking an overdose, was killed. The story makes a strong impression on Margaret and she falls into a troubled sleep. A boy is born to Margaret. All through his childhood he shows signs of being a fighter, and when he grows up he wants to join the National Guard. Margaret is forced to give in and consents. Shortly afterward, Donald, the son, becomes engaged to Patricia Landon. His father is called to England on business and he is put in full charge of the firm. A few months afterward, a letter comes from the other side saying that his father had enlisted when the war broke out. Margaret takes the news seriously, and Dr. Ardath is sent for. The doctor leaves his case of medicines on the table and Margaret sees the cardiac depressant in it. The idea at once comes to her that it might be of use to her in case the government should draft her son, so she takes the vial. Then comes the news that the United States and Mexico are going to war. She at once makes use of the medicine and so affects the action of Donald's heart that he is rejected. The boy is heartbroken and goes to tell Patricia. He receives a cold reception and later the girl's mother argues with her until she agrees to break the engagement owing to Donald's poor health. Donald takes to drink. His mother is heartbroken, as she thinks that she is to blame for it all, and hesitates to tell the boy that Patricia has married another man. Then the news comes that Robert is wounded. Dr. Ardath returns and upon examining Donald, says that his heart is all right. They telephone the other doctor and from what he says, the doctor knows that some of the cardiac depressant must have been used. Donald, when he finds this out, rushes to accuse his mother. She goes to get the drug, but takes it herself instead. As Margaret comes to the head of the stairs she overhears Donald reading a telegram from Europe saying that her husband is dead. With that she falls over and, with a bump Margaret wakes from her terrible dream. She is delighted to find that her husband is really alive and as the picture closes she says that at last she is convinced that one's duty to one's country is the highest, and says that she will never oppose Robert's responding to his country's call.

Phadrig poses as a seer and Barney, being poor, goes to him to learn a way to make his fortune. Phadrig at once sees a chance to work his downfall. He has Teddy draw a card from the pack, which happens to be the three of diamonds, and then mysteriously tells him that if Teddy will meet him in the glen at night fall he will have some news for him.

Meanwhile, Phadrig and Red Barney have met a passing British army patrol who are out on the trail of the "White Boys."

The officers force Barney to accompany them to O'Neill's cottage, where Teddy and Eileen are together. Teddy is searched by the officers, but no card is found. Seeing the plot, Eileen slyly slips the card into Red's pocket, where it is found by the officers. Barney is placed under arrest.

The story deals with Brother Gregoire, a Spanish monk, living in a Mexican monastery. He is deeply devoted to Pedro, a young village boy. When volunteers are called for in the village, Pedro joins eagerly. His mother, hearing the news, begs him not to go, saying that his father was killed in the war. Brother Gregoire also is frightened and begs the boy to remain but, in spite of all, he leaves. At midnight three weeks later, while his mother prays in her little home, and Brother Gregoire keeps an all night vigil before the altar, the first shot comes as the boy lies sleeping in his tent. He awakens, and again the cannons roar out on the still night. With a terrified look he leaps to his feet and slides cautiously out of the tent. He eludes the sentinels, passes the line, and makes for his home. He bursts in upon his mother at her prayers, and she can scarcely believe it is her boy. Meanwhile, the boy's flight has been discovered, and the commandant and a few soldiers start in search of Pedro. The mother says he must go to Brother Gregoire, as he will hide him, and together the two start for the Monastery. The boy leaves his mother in the garden and finds Brother Gregoire at his prayers. He tells Pedro to bring his mother in, as he wishes to meet her. The boy obeys, and the mother and the monk face each other, tensely. Pedro looks from one to the other in amazement, and asks if they know each other. Both nod, and Brother Gregoire bids the woman tell the boy her story. She relates how she and Gregoire were betrothed and how he left for the war. Later he was reported dead, and she, heartbroken, lived on with her old mother in abject poverty, until the rich young man of the town, Manuel, proposed marriage, and she accepted. Shortly before Pedro was born, Manuel also went to war, and was killed before Pedro's birth. Then Gregoire takes up the story, saying he heard of her marriage to Manuel while in the hospital. A holy brother offered him the solace of the church, and he accepted. As the story finishes there is a noise outside and they all realize it is the commandant in search of Pedro. There is no time to lose, and Gregoire. moved by the mother's entreaties, hides Pedro behind the altar. When the commandant enters he finds Gregoire attending the candles. Gregoire says he has not seen Pedro and the commandant starts to leave when the boy, hearing the monk's sacrifice, loses all fear, comes down and gives himself up to the commandant. As they lead him back, to the field to fight for his country, Brother Gregoire drops to his knees in thankful prayer, that the boy has proved himself a man.

Rose Farley is a free-hearted Irish girl with slight regard for the conventions and other people's feelings. Upon the suggestion of the Rev. Thomas Noland, she is sent to an Irish country school for some sort of an education. Captain Roderick Allen, the new master of Wild Craig Manor, who lives near the school Rose is attending, arrives in the village. He meets Rose Farley, and is struck with her beauty. Rose has an unwelcome suitor in Terence McCoy, who pursues her and endeavors to force his unwelcome attentions upon her at every opportunity. She manages to keep him in his place, however and her love affair with Captain Allen progresses. A cloud, however, rests over Captain Allen's life. His wife is insane and confined in an asylum. Her death is hourly expected, but finally the Captain receives a message stating that she will live on indefinitely. He tells Rose of the news that he has just received. She is of course, brokenhearted and he suffering, too, and anxious to be away from the old things, secretly leaves the manor. Her great sorrow so affects Rose that becomes she nearly mad and wanders about the grounds of the manor in a daze. The village priest advises her to drop her apparently unworthy love and accept the attentions of Terence McCoy, who, he says, is not an altogether undesirable match, being wealthy in the world's goods as compared with his neighbors. Squireen McCoy hits upon a fiendish plan for winning Rose. He forges a letter addressed to himself, purporting to have come from one of the Captain's servants, bearing the news of the master's death. He contrives to introduce this false communication at an opportune moment, but it only serves to renew the old grief on the part of the girl. McCoy conspires with Shaun, the carrier, who has been the victim of many of Rose's childish pranks and together they frame up a scheme. Shaun is about to have her arrested, when McCoy gallantly offers to assume the responsibility and save Rose. They arouse no feeling in her heart, however, but her willpower finally breaks down. The day for their wedding is set and the priest is ready to begin the ceremony. Great is the consternation of all, however, when Captain Allen suddenly arrives. He tells Rose of his insane wife's death and again pleads his love for Rose. All is finally explained and Rose turns to her old lover. The old aunt does not like the Captain and is about to put an Irish curse upon her niece. The old priest finally dissuades her, however, and blesses the two happy reunited lovers.

McQuarrie's wife discovers an old Indian headdress in his trunk, and asks where he obtained it. McQuarrie modestly refuses to tell; she insists. He does not wish to tell her the truth so he makes up a story, and tells her how when a young chap he was in the west with two other fellows and they were attacked by a band of Indians. His two companions become frightened and hide under their bunks, but he braves the dozen Indians, and kills off one after another, until the last one is reached, then his ammunition is all gone, so they have a hand-to-hand fight with knives. Here he also wins and this headdress is that of the last Indian. In the midst of this story, their little son Jimmy has come into the room and is delighted to learn that his father is such a grand hero. Mother takes him upstairs, where on a table in his room is an Indian manikin with several others doing a war dance. Jimmy is put to bed and begins to dream of Indians. When his wife and son leave the room McQuarrie recalls what actually did happen when he secured this headdress. He is going to a masquerade, and arrives there very hilarious, and is not allowed to enter, so throws a brick through the window and then starts on a run. A very comical chase follows, which ends in McQuarrie throwing an Indian cigar sign in his pursuer's path, which is mistaken for him, thus he makes his escape. While reminiscent he falls asleep and dreams he has been caught by a band of Indians and is about to be burned at the stake. Meanwhile Jimmy dreams he is killing off Indians just as his father did, and begins to walk in his sleep. When he arrives in the dining room his father appears to be one of the hated Indians and he hits him on the head with the poker. The blow awakens father, who believes this is the Indians' work, but is readily knocked out by the blow. At that moment Jimmy also wakes up and mother comes into the room. Father is helped to bed. When the doctor arrives he announces McQuarrie will be all right in a few weeks. Then appears the moral: "Don't Lie to Your Family."
