Mary Grey, a young working girl, is in love with Chip Malone, a young fellow, who, while not bad at heart, has, through evil associates, learned to shirk work and spend in drink what money he is able to obtain. Discouraged by her failure to reform him and hopeless when Mary loses her position, she can see no way out of her troubles but suicide. An item in a newspaper to the effect that a man has swallowed bichloride of mercury, and is awaiting the slow death which that poison brings, suggests to her the means to carry out her plan. She goes to a drug store, asks for the same poison and takes the box to her room, where she swallows the contents. Meanwhile in the room next to Mary's another tragedy is about to be enacted. Rorie Graves is the son of the district attorney of the city, a boy weak in the face of temptation, who has sunk lower and lower until he has become the member of a gang of thugs, which is being prosecuted by his own father. When the gang decide to do away with the district attorney and the lot falls to Rorie to carry out the crime he realizes the error of his ways and shrinks from the gang, who proceed to deal with the traitor. Mary hears the struggle, and, only conscious of the fact that someone is in danger, hurries into the presence of the gang and denounces them. Rorie grasps the opportunity to escape and when Mary returns to her room she finds him hiding there. He tells his story to Mary and she decides to save him. Together they hasten out to go to Rorie's father. On the way there they learn that Rorie's father has been shot by a member of the gang. This upsets Rorie so that he enters a saloon with Mary to brace himself with a drink. There a moment later detectives, who recognize Rorie as a member of the gang, arrest them, but as they lead their prisoners out Chip, who happened to witness the arrest, stands them off with his gun and Mary and Rorie escape to Mary's room. There Chip, who has also made a getaway, joins them. Leaving Rorie in her room, Mary hastens to the district attorney's residence and fetches Rorie's mother, who is overjoyed to clasp her wayward boy in her arms again. Meanwhile, the detectives have located the building where Rorie is hiding, but Mary, by a clever ruse, decoys them to the gang's room instead, and the thugs, as well as Mary, are handcuffed and led off to the police station. There Mary awaits the approach of death. When Chip arrives with the doctor, who has examined the box which Mary believed would be her death, he brings the news that the contents of the box was harmless and that the wrong label was used. Surrounded by the laughing policemen, Chip, who has also learned his lesson, pledges his love for Mary anew.

Emerson Boyd is the owner of the Great Boyd Mills, a relentless scheming, grinding corporation, which employs child labor and disregards all laws of health and sanitation. He is also in control of the Boyd Chemical Company, another large corporation with the same greedy and heartless policy which turns out upon the public certain harmful and toxic medicines, among which is Saco-Ozone, a widely advertised cure for tuberculosis and pulmonary diseases. Back of the powerful arm of Emerson Boyd is David Duncan, general manager of the Boyd Mills. Duncan is also a crooked politician. He is in love with Eleanor, Boyd's daughter, who, however, is secretly engaged to Matthew Brand, one of the idle rich. Emerson Boyd reads a newspaper attack upon the Boyd Corporation and, in a great rage, calls Duncan to see what influence he can use as a political boss to muzzle the paper. Eleanor goes away and Brand runs across the newspaper article against her father. Alarmed by the facts set forth in the paper, Brand determines to investigate, and, calling upon Cole, the editor of the "Clarion," hears a story that makes him sick at heart. Then he learns that Boyd's political machine has muzzled the paper. Brand pays a visit to Boyd's factories, and is horrified at the unsanitary conditions. Brand visits the "Clarion" office and buys the paper, but retains Cole to help him. They start at once on an article that drives Boyd wild with rage when the paper comes from the press. Brand goes to call on Eleanor. At the same time Duncan and the detective are closeted with Boyd. While Brand is telling Eleanor of his campaign with the Tuberculosis Society to wipe out the dread disease the detective is telling Boyd that the man who is so bitterly opposing him and printing the vitriolic stories is none other than the quiet Matthew Brand, who has been courting his daughter. Boyd is astounded. Meanwhile, Eleanor has become so enthusiastic that she determines that her father must hear the story and hurries to the library, where Boyd is closeted with his hirelings, and begs him to come and listen to Matthew Brand. When Brand sees Boyd, the latter attacks him unsparingly and, refusing to grant him a hearing, orders him to leave the house and never return. Eleanor is astounded. The National Tuberculosis Society meets with failure, for, when Boyd learns of the proposed sanitarium, he orders the mayor to prevent it, fearing that it might hurt his patent medicine business. Following the dictates of his superior, Mayor Alrich replies that the finances of the town would not warrant such a measure. Meanwhile Boyd becomes interested in the persistent attack upon the horrible system of the great mills and inquires of Duncan as to the truth of the stories. The latter lies glibly. In the meantime, Eleanor has gone to the "Clarion'' office to see her sweetheart. Duncan calls, and Brand pushes Eleanor into an adjoining room, that she may hear what is said. Duncan threatens Brand to induce him to stop the damaging articles, but Brand defies him. Boyd is beginning to admire Brand, but Duncan plans to dynamite the "Clarion." Eleanor, becoming very ill, the old family physician is sent for, and, making a thorough examination, tells Boyd the crushing news that his daughter has symptoms of tuberculosis. Duncan arrives at the rendezvous where he learns that the police have become suspicious of the gangsters and they had retired to await his orders. Duncan is angered to the utmost over the hitch in the well-laid plans, and, calling them all the utmost cowards, takes the bomb himself and bids them follow. In the darkness of the rear of the "Clarion" office, Duncan sets the bomb and lights it, while on the inside, Brand and a helper are working over some copy. The bomb has a defective fuse, and a premature explosion takes place, killing Duncan, while the falling bricks and masonry seriously injure Brand. Boyd's family physician tells the money king that there are no places in Every-town for the proper treatment of tuberculosis, as Boyd and other corporation owners have persistently fought to keep out all sanitariums. Boyd thinks of his own remedy, and sends for a case of Saco-Ozone. He reads from the testimonials of its wonderful cures, but the family physician appears, and hurls it all from the window, telling him that it is harmful and poisonous. He then tells Boyd that Eleanor, to get well, must be sent to an open air sanitarium. When Boyd tells Eleanor of the doctor's suggestion, and offers her anything her heart desires, if she will only try to get well, he is told that her one wish is that he will send for Brand and listen to him. Boyd leads Brand to the library, where he listens to the other's talk on the existing evil conditions and of his efforts to prevent the spreading of tuberculosis. Boyd thereupon plans to reconstruct Every-town. Miracle upon miracle is accomplished by the enthusiastic money king, who sends his daughter to a sanitarium, where she ultimately recovers after receiving good care, fresh air, rest and wholesome food. The story ends one year later with a big banquet to celebrate a new and clean Every-town and, incidentally, the engagement of Eleanor and Brand.

Among the curios brought from India by Colonel Marsden is a black pearl. Margaret, his daughter, fancies the jewel and asks for it, but father replies that it is an occult jewel and can only be possessed by one showing supreme faith. Phil, the colonel's nephew, is heavily in debt to Benson, a gambler. Benson renews his importunities for his money and finally forces Phil to introduce him into Colonel Marsden's family as a friend. Benson inveigles Phil into more gambling games. Phil finally agrees to Benson's proposal that they rob his father's safe and put the blame on someone else. In the meantime, Jack North, who is friendly with Margaret, fears he will lose her because of the fascinations of Benson. To humor her he again asked the Colonel for the black pearl for Margaret, but the Colonel refuses. Returning home North writes to Margaret telling her of his failure to get the pearl, but adding that he "will get it yet." Benson and Phil steal the keys from the Colonel and rifle the safe. North is decoyed to the house by a note with Margaret's signature forged. He is assaulted by Benson and Phil and is carried, bound and gagged, into an unused room in the house. The unmailed letter to Margaret is found in North's pocket and this with the keys are placed in front of the safe. The robbery is discovered. The police fail to find North, who, of course, is suspected. In the attic above, his muscles bound. North crawls to the washstand. He bursts the faucet with his feet and with his heel blocks the drain hole. Rapidly the water rises, flooding the floor. A maid, in the room below sees the ceiling dampen and then the rush of water falling in cascades about her. She notifies the police who are in conference with Colonel Marsden at whose side sits Margaret, stoutly defending her absent lover and declaring her implicit faith in his innocence. In the library, Benson and Phil, realizing by the commotion above, that North has been found, stand indecisively. Benson makes a break for the balcony with Phil close behind him. But Benson's revolver stares at Phil sinisterly. Determined that Benson shall take the medicine with him, Phil grapples with him. The police, breaking in upon North, find him nearly submerged in the rising flood. Asked to explain. North says that the Colonel's nephew can best do that. A shot from Benson's revolver aimed at Phil, but diverted by the latter's quickness, attracts them below. The struggle is still on with Benson gradually wearing down his opponent when the police pull him off. Phil confesses. Not long after the Colonel approaches North and Margaret and hands to Margaret the black pearl.

At the reading of the will Margaret faints and the family doctor, who is summoned declares that if she is subjected to any sudden shock she may die of heart failure. Margaret's uncle and her guardian, Ralph, look at each other significantly when the doctor makes his pronouncement, for both have been disappointed that they have not received a larger slice of John Irwin's fortune The young lawyer. Hobart Henderson, sees the significant exchange of glances between father and son, and is not able to forget the circumstances which recurs to trouble him at the most unexpected time thereafter. In parting the young lawyer tells Margaret that if at any time she should ever need him to call upon him at the address he gives her. Irwin takes Margaret to his own home to live. His house is known in the neighborhood as "The House of Fear," and in it lives a weird creature known as Nick. Nick is half-witted and is dumb. He looks half beast and half man. Those in the neighborhood are afraid to go near the house, as strange stories are told of the happenings therein. From the first Margaret is fearful of Nick. Irwin and his father notice this and accordingly they start to work on the girl's fear. Nick takes much delight in creeping about the house, frightening Margaret, and darts about upon her at the most unexpected moments. Margaret tells her uncle that she is afraid of the half-witted monster. Her uncle gives her a revolver, telling her that if she has occasion to use it to do so. That night as she sleeps the half-man creeps into her room. His heavy breathing awakens the girl and when she sees the hideous, grinning figure at the foot of her bed she cries out. When the distorted face continues to leer at her Margaret draws the revolver from beneath the pillow and fires at him. Nick drops on the floor, apparently dead. Ralph and his uncle examine Nick's body and tell Margaret that he is dead. She swoons and they carry Nick away. Margaret believes herself a murderess and the thought preys upon her mind. Oppressed with the feeling that all is not well with Margaret, Hobart decides to visit her, Margaret rushes to him with a glad cry. Ralph and his uncle demand a reason for Hobart's visit and the young lawyer explains that he has to have Margaret's signature to a legal document. Hobart then boards a train, but leaves at the other end of the car and returns to watch "The House of Fear." Again Nick creeps into Margaret's room, and the overwrought girl thinks that she sees the ghost of the man she has murdered. Hobart outside the house hears Margaret's terrible scream and with a platoon of police raids the house. Nothing upon which a charge could be based is discovered by the police, but, acting upon Hobart's suggestion, they surround the house and await developments. Hobart. through a window in the house, sees Ralph talking with Nick, who has a knife in his hand. He looks up and sees a light in Margaret's window. Climbing up the veranda pole, Hobart taps on Margaret's window and is admitted to her room. Margaret breaks down and tells him how she has killed Nick. Hobart is amazed and opens Margaret's revolver to discover that all the cartridges are blanks. Margaret is much relieved to learn that Nick is not dead. Hobart then hides Margaret in another room and arranges Margaret's bed to make it appear that she is sleeping beneath the covers. A few moments later Nick creeps in and plunges his knife into what seems to be Margaret's sleeping figure. Hobart then closes with the half-witted monster and a desperate struggle follows. Hobart endeavors to obtain possession of Nick's knife and in the fight both men fall from a balcony within the house. Nick's superhuman strength enables him to pinion Hobart to a table and he is about to plunge his knife into the young lawyer when Margaret comes out on the balcony with her revolver filled with real bullets and shoots the madman. The police outside hear the shot and raid "The House of Fear." Ralph and his uncle are jailed. Nick, the half-man, dies of his injuries. In the end Hobart and Margaret are married and "The House of Fear" becomes but a memory.

Her cleverness in this respect, combined with her womanly intuition, has made her valuable to government officials. She is soon given an opportunity to demonstrate her skill again. Young Hough, on board a ship coming into New York, poses as an artist and carries with him a case of artist's colors. Hough sends his father a wireless message, which passes through Rose's hands. She reads it aloud to Phil: "Arrive tomorrow. Got some wonderful new tones from Europe. Meet me with car." Phil thinks nothing of the wording of the telegram and leaves. Rose, however, is struck with the idea that there is more in the message than appears on the surface and, with a woman's curiosity, gets out her book of secret codes and puzzles over the letter combinations. In twenty minutes she has translated the message. Its contents are of such a suspicious nature that Phil determines to consult with the chief. He looks up Hough's address, and Rose, upon Hough's arrival, scrapes acquaintance with him and, to test his ability as an artist, agrees to pay him well for a picture, to be called "Sweet Innocence." Hough is much impressed by Rose's wonderful gown and diamonds and, thinking he can relieve her of the gems at some future time, encourages her to believe that he will paint her picture in his New York studios. Hough is arrested on suspicion, but when searched at headquarters the detectives find nothing on him. Rose, while Hough is detained, makes a careful search of his quarters, but finds nothing incriminating. That night, in his father's home, Hough takes out the tubes of oil paints which he has brought from Europe, cuts the ends off, and from each takes a quantity of diamonds. The following day Rose goes for a sitting. While she is in Hough's studio a laborer drives up with a crate containing eggs. Two men are watching him on the sidewalk. The laborer walks forward and deliberately bumps into them. They ask him to apologize and he refuses. While they fight Hough and his son run out and remove the crate of eggs to Hough's rooms. Rose watches the fight and before Hough's return hides herself in one of the rooms. Hough and his son believe she has gone and proceed to open the eggs, from each one of which they take diamonds. Rose, watching through a transom, slips from her chair and falls heavily. The Houghs make her prisoner. While they are binding and gagging her the chief of detectives, Fenno and his men arrive. The room is plunged into darkness and the smugglers escape. A spirited pursuit follows, and Rose employs a unique method of capturing them. Later Fenno and Rose are married. As a wedding present the chief sends them an egg with a diamond in it.

The story opens in a bank in Minneapolis. Fred Wentworth, one of the clerks, is sent out on a message, and while he is gone the cashier is shot dead by Frank Davis, a robber and bad man generally. Davis secures a package of bank notes and hurriedly departs. On his way to the street he runs into Fred Wentworth (who is returning to the bank) with such force that he drops the package. He recognizes Wentworth and, fearful of arrest, rushes away and catches a northbound train that is just pulling out. Wentworth stops amazed and lifts the package. Entering the bank, he discovers the dead cashier and a revolver on the floor. Horrified, he lifts the revolver, and while holding it and the package of bills in his hands the president of the bank enters. The proofs of murder are so clear that Wentworth is sentenced to life imprisonment in the penitentiary. Frank Davis, in the meantime, has gone to one of his old haunts in the North, near the boundary line. He induces one of his former associates to join him in whiskey-running across the border. While the men are engaged in this outlawry, Fred Wentworth escapes from prison and heads for the Northwest. He is saved from death in the snowdrifts by an officer of the mounted police, who carries him to headquarters. After his recovery he applies to the chief for admission to the force, and is accepted as a member. The president of the Minneapolis bank, a brother of the chief of the N. W. M. P., chances to arrive at the post on a visit about, the time that Wentworth is about to leave on a search for the whiskey smugglers. The president catches a side glimpse of Wentworth's face as he rides off, and tries to recall it. He fails, but it still haunts him, and the truth flashes on him some time after Wentworth's departure. He immediately denounces Wentworth as an escaped murderer, and the chief dispatches two of his men to arrest that officer. Wentworth, in the interim, has discovered the smugglers, and is badly worsted in an encounter with Davis, whom he recognizes as the murderer of the cashier. The two officers arrive at the spot shortly after the struggle, and Davis opens fire on them. They mortally wound him and he is carried into the cabin, where they arrest Wentworth. Davis, after confessing that he killed the cashier, and that Wentworth is innocent, dies. Wentworth is taken back to the post and is cleared of the crime in presence of the chief and his brother. He is then restored to his former position in the Minneapolis bank.
