Charles Trevor is a young chap just out of college, who is put to work on a daily newspaper and at once starts to lead a life of adventure and romance. A German spy and a maiden in distress cross his path the first day and, before the end of the story, he has landed a big scoop for his paper, put the German in jail and married the girl. There are chases in automobiles, on motorcycles, on horseback and in motorboats, and the entire picture has the bustle and the atmosphere of a melodramatic serial. As the hero, Carlyle Blackwell is always consistent to the type of all-conquering young gentlemen drawn by the author, He plays the part as if he enjoys doing so and gives an unaccustomed glow of romance to the otherwise humdrum newspaper office, where he is employed.

On her son David's second birthday, Madge Black …
On her son David's second birthday, Madge Black witnesses her best chum, Nan Westland, kissing Jeffrey Arnold Black, her husband, a successful lawyer. Madge orders Nan from the house. Angered, Jeffrey does not explain that it is his money which maintains the home, and not her father's as Madge believes. Jeffrey leaves his wife and son. On board a westbound train, Jeffrey meets Nan. She explains that she has been compromised, and that she is going away to hide. Touched by her apparent sorrow, Jeffrey tells her that, though he doesn't love her, he will try to protect her. In love with him, Nan is willing to accept him on any terms. A year later a son is born to Nan and Jeffrey. She pleads with him to divorce Madge and marry her, for the sake of their child, William's, name, but he will not hear of it. Ben Richardson, Jeffrey's client, is a frequent visitor at their home. Richardson's sincerity eventually wins Nan, and, goaded by Jeffrey's indifference, she leaves him and their child, to become Richardson's wife. Twenty years later David Black has developed into a splendid specimen of manhood, while his half-brother, William, has become the leader of a lawless band. David goes west to take charge of a mining plant. Happily married, Ben Richardson and Nan have become owners of Chanceland, a gambling house in Colorado. "Rodeo," as William Arnold is known, goes to Chanceland to try his luck, but he loses all his money. He sees Nan in the music room adjoining, and eager to make an impression on her, he saunters in. When Nan asks his name, he says they call him "Rodeo the bandit." His real name, William Arnold, son of Jeffrey Arnold, from whom he had run away at fourteen. Never knew his mother; he guesses he'd better be going or he'd get sentimental. Not revealing her identity, Nan presses a ring into his hand, and tells him to come to her if he should be in trouble. Believing that he has surely "caught" the Queen, he strolls out. In the same town, his half-brother, David Black, is working on his mining schemes. In the doorway of Chanceland, "Rodeo" passes David Black, and both are struck by the remarkable resemblance to each other. David receives a telegram from Kathleen May, his fiancée, asking him to meet her at the train which is to arrive the next morning. That night "Rodeo" and his men hold up the train. While "Rodeo" is relieving the passengers of their valuables, the conductor leaps on him, and the bandanna which concealed the bandit's features, is torn away, revealing him to Kathleen. She believes him to be David. The bandit effects a getaway. When David comes to get Kathleen, the next day, she snubs him and walks past him. Ben Richardson's servant sees "Rodeo" and his men dividing the plunder, and reports to Richardson. The latter intimates to Nan that the young fellow she was interested in is suspected of a number of crimes. She realizes that her son is in danger. Disconsolate, David tries to find solace in Chanceland, where he is arrested on the charge of robbing the mails and holding up the train. Deciding on a bold stroke, "Rodeo" goes to see Nan. She discloses herself as his mother and pleads with him to be careful, for as soon as the prisoner proves an alibi, the sheriff will be after "Rodeo." Hearing Richardson, she pushes her son into her bedroom. Richardson, suspecting that Nan is hiding her lover, dashes into the room and fires at "Rodeo " "Rodeo" is taken to court where David is being tried for the bandit's crimes. Nan confesses to Richardson that "Rodeo" is her son, and hastens to court. Also in the courtroom are Kathleen and Madge, David's mother. The presiding judge is Jeffrey Arnold Black, father of the prisoner. When "Rodeo" is brought in, a dramatic scene ensues, during which the two half-brothers face each other. Nan embraces her wayward son, while he bewails the fact that he had found his mother only to lose her, and draws his last breath after vindicating David. A tender reconciliation follows between Madge, Jeffrey and their son David. Richardson seeks and obtains Nan's forgiveness for his suspicions of her. David and Kathleen May embrace, and then discuss their hopes of a little cottage for two.

Adrienne Van Couver, a divorcée, visited Mme. Melvina, a clairvoyant, who tells her that a tall dark man, Robert Warren, is excited over a letter he has just received from her, telling him she does not love him. The fortune teller bids her beware of him, then goes on to tell her that Henry Armstrong, the man she loves will never love her. The clairvoyant then tells Adrienne of a young girl, Lorraine, whose eyes are dim with the tears that she has caused in another part of the city, Lorraine greets her fiancé, Henry Armstrong, with ill-concealed dejection and he tells her he fears she still loves John Dean, but she dispels his suspicions. John Dean shares the secret of his silent love for Lorraine with his mother. Robert Warren goes out into the night; it is then he meets John. In the other's haggard face, John Dean sees traces of his own sorrow and trying to make it easier for this man who has been his friend for five years, he tells Robert Warren his story. Eight years ago he and Adrienne were married. For two years they lived on the money inherited from his father. It was then the baby came and the father found happiness in the touch of baby hands, but to his wife it made no difference. Then the baby became ill, and while its mother was away, dancing, the little life slipped away. Six months later Adrienne was given a divorce. Then he and his mother came to New York and a few years later he met and loved Lorraine Barkley. Although Henry Armstrong was a dangerous rival, Lorraine loved him and he did not fear until the day when the Barkleys gave a reception. It was then he met Adrienne again and she taunted him with his love for the young girl. When she demanded money, he gave it to her. Lorraine sees this and misconstrues the situation. It is then her engagement to Henry Armstrong is announced. John finishes his story and Robert is maddened by the destruction of the halo he had built around the woman he loved. Robert makes his way to Adrienne, who has been nervous and ill at ease ever since she returned from the fortune teller. Robert's haggard appearance frightens her and she telephones to Henry, but her call for help is only half uttered when Robert forcibly takes the instrument away from her. Henry, alarmed, starts off at once to aid her. In the meanwhile, John, fearful for Adrienne's safety, goes to warn her. He arrives just after Robert has made his escape after murdering Adrienne. When Henry arrives with two policemen, he finds John bending over the dead woman. He is arrested. Lorraine is brokenhearted when she hears of the arrest and pleads with Henry, who is a lawyer, to take Dean's case. Detectives search Robert's apartment and find here a coat with buttons similar to one found in the dead woman's hand, and one is missing! They trace Robert to the hotel and after a terrible fight he is taken into custody. Happiness came with the morning, for Henry took Lorraine's hand and told her she was released from her promise to marry him. Then she called up John Dean and told him that she was ready to marry him.

Hugh Eltinge, a struggling artist, and Mark Dunbar, a genius of the pen, whom the world has as yet failed to reward, live together in MacDougal Alley. Across the hall is Doris Golden, a reporter on the Evening Star, who enthuses over the work of both. Mark's novel is sold and Hugh and Doris see a new Mark. Mark begs Hugh to allow him to stake him until his pictures sell, but pleasure in his new clothes and new popularity dwindle as he sees his old friends will not profit by them. A happy idea strikes him and he buys all of Hugh's paintings on exhibition at a local dealer, requesting that his name be not mentioned. Mark rejoices with Hugh when he comes home to tell the news. Then the two decide Doris must also share with them, and together they go to a lawyer, and arrange to persuade him to send a letter to Doris saying her uncle in San Francisco has died leaving her a thousand dollars. In another section of the City Mrs. Trailes and her daughter, Ruby, scheme to ensnare a wealthy husband for the girl. Mark's reputation has impressed them. He is invited to attend a meeting of their Literary Club and the girl is given instructions to attract him. Mark meets the young society girl. Hugh and Doris, she is reporting the meeting, are also there and to them evidences of Mark's awakening infatuation are pitifully clear. Mark sees Ruby often. At a ladies' swimming club he is the guest of her mother. At a sign from her mother Ruby pretends to be drowning and Mark jumps in to her rescue. The friendship thus engendered ripens into love and it is not long before they are married. But early in his wedded life Mark begins to feel the pangs of disillusion. Ruby is pettish and extravagant and when he remonstrates with her, she breaks into tirades of scolding that drive him to silence. Doris discovers her uncle is alive, and, perplexed, goes to the lawyer, who tells her all. She writes to Mark, enclosing a check for the whole amount she has left and promising to send the balance as soon as she can. His wife intercepts the letter and accuses him of infidelity. Her true vulgarity asserts itself and he goes to the little studio. Ruby follows and finds him with Doris and another scene is enacted. Mark begs Hugh to look after Doris, then leaves. Hugh leaves a letter for Doris and a note in which he asks her not to read the letter before she has found happiness. Hugh tells a newspaper reporter with whom he is acquainted that he has inherited a fortune from his grandfather, and the account is printed in the evening paper.

Disillusioned, his last ideal, friendship, completely shattered, Mark hurries away. After the divorce, he seeks Doris and the two become engaged. She remembers the letter and opens it. Herein Hugh has outlined his plans, the story of the fortune was a hoax, wherewith to entrap Ruby. For the sake of friendship he had sacrificed himself to bring happiness to the two he loved.

Bradford Stewart, a young American surgeon …
Bradford Stewart, a young American surgeon studying in Germany, is dining in Cologne with a German friend, Ritter Bloem, a philosopher and a patriotic German. The latter is called away by German officers, and on his return announces to Stewart that war has been declared. After Bloem's departure, Trapadoux, chief of the French Secret Service maintained in Germany, who has been listening to their conversation, accosts Stewart, claiming to be one of the German police agents, inspects his passport, and learns to which hotel he will go in Aachen, which is his next destination. Frau Schanne, the proprietress of the Holmer Hof, secretly maintains French sympathies, but her servant, Hans, is a German spy. In Stewart's absence from his room, Trapadoux brings Frau Schanne a package, the contents of which he instructs her to place in Stewart's baggage to avert police suspicion during their later moves. Upon his return to his room Stewart finds in his luggage a lady's slippers, silk hose and dainty lingerie. The door of his room is opened and Little Comrade hurries in, embraces him fondly and calling him husband. Outside the door Hans listens, perplexed and a little suspicious, but had he not seen the lady's garments in Stewart's belongings? Perhaps, after all, she is his wife. After making sure of Hans' retirement, Little Comrade explains to Stewart that she is a French spy fleeing from Germany with secrets stolen from the German officers with whom she has been wont to flirt in Alsace-Lorraine; that even now they are on the watch for her and that if she is brought back, death will be the penalty. Stewart consents to help her, and watches while she forges an addition to his passport, adding to his own name and description, the description of herself as his wife traveling with him. Together they pass the gauntlet of police inspection and board the train for Brussels. At the frontier the train is held up and all passengers inspected. The police inspector stationed there holds Stewart and his "wife" for the coming of a German' officer from Metz to identify Little Comrade. One of the French spies on the frontier summons Trapadoux, who comes in the guise of the officer from Metz, and after inspecting Little Comrade, states that she is not the woman spy they feared. In the morning they arrive at the Belgium camp, where they are welcomed, but a few hours later the Belgians muster in battle against the German invaders. Little Comrade and Stewart are wounded, and while Stewart goes for a stretcher for her, she is captured by a genuine officer from Metz, who takes her to German headquarters and denounces her as a spy. Bloem, who is in command is unable to persuade her to confess. When Stewart discovers Little Comrade gone, weak from loss of blood, he becomes unconscious for several days. Upon regaining consciousness he learns that Little Comrade has been captured, so he concentrates his energies on delivering to General Joffre the papers she confided to his keeping. In gratitude, General Joffre bestows on Stewart the ribbon of the Legion of Honor, but overwhelmed by his loss and weak from this last effort, Stewart is borne away delirious. At the German headquarters, Bloem finding Little Comrade obdurate, is about to pass sentence upon her when she begs him to send her last words of love to Stewart. Finding that Stewart is her lover, Bloem, whose life was once saved by Stewart, refuses to condemn her, claiming that there is not sufficient evidence, and sends her back to "her American husband." There follows a joyous reunion in the hospital between Stewart and Little Comrade.

Red Sweeney, living by his wits, makes a humorous mistake which results in a protracted visit in jail. Harry and George each purchase a stick pin with brilliant imitation diamonds for 25 cents, and when they return to the office their employer, Mr. Goodwin, is deceived by the cheap jewelry. Goodwin is induced to wear one of the pins in his tie as a joke, and when he steps from his office he is accosted by Red Sweeney, who begs the price of a meal. As Goodwin is extricating some change from his pocket, the pin catches Red's eye and he makes away with it. Goodwin is almost convulsed with laughter as he thinks of the thief's poor selection, but he decides that the man should be punished in any event and he informs the police. Red returns to his shack and extracting the pin's setting, places it in a ring which he hands to Rose, his accomplice, to pawn. The pawnbroker is suspicious when the ring is offered to him and slipping out the back door, he summons an officer. Rose, becoming alarmed, makes her escape but is finally apprehended. A woman detective at headquarters dons Rose's clothes and, carefully veiled, she enters Sweeney's abode. Red asks for a report and is confronted by the detective's revolver. The thief is taken to the station house and Mr. Goodwin is called. When Red and Rose are brought before him, Goodwin takes the supposed gem and smashes it into a powder with one blow of the sergeant's pistol. "What do you know about that?" exclaims the disgusted Sweeney to Rose. Then turning to the sergeant, he remarks, "Lock us both up till we get some sense."

In 1680, owing to the tyrannical rule of the Spaniards, the Pueblo Indians, under the leadership of Pope, chief of the San Juan tribe, resolved to rebel and drive their oppressors out of New Spain (New Mexico). Jaca, one of the chiefs consorting with Pope, secretly sympathized with the Spaniards and sent his daughter, Maria, a converted squaw, to warn the governor, Otermin, at Santa Fe, of the proposed revolt. Captain Gomez was sent by Governor Otermin on a reconnaissance with a small troop of soldiers, and was driven back by the hostile Indians. Chief Pope offered Governor Otermin his choice of peace or war by sending him two crosses, one black and one white; the choice of the white cross to mean that the Spaniards would be allowed to march out of the country without being molested; the choice of the black cross to indicate war. Governor Otermin returned both crosses and the Indians promptly attacked the Spaniards. After withstanding a short siege, the Spaniards succeeded in driving off the Indians, but Governor Otermin was compelled to evacuate Santa Fe and retire to El Paso. In 1692, the Indians again became restless and decided to go on the warpath a second time. Maria journeyed to El Paso to acquaint Governor De Vargas of the determination of the Indians and De Vargas at once organized an expedition to re-conquer Santa Fe. He dispatched Maria ahead to prepare the way for a peaceful conquest and followed with his troops. The Indians, still in warlike mood, at first refused to accede peacefully and sent a spy to detect the movements and number of the Spanish forces. The Indian spy was captured but treated kindly by De Vargas, who sent him back to entreat the Indians to surrender. While the Spanish forces drew up in battle array before Santa Fe, with cannon in position, the Indians began to weaken. A few of them dropped over the walls and begged mercy of Governor De Vargas. He received them kindly and the rest of the Indians, observing this, abandoned their hostilities. The Spaniards marched into Santa Fe in triumph and Governor De Vargas wrote a proclamation forgiving the rebels.

Dimitri and his sister, Amuska, stopped before the gate of the Brokoff estate. Even the sight of life, which knew not hunger and want, was a relief to these impoverished peasants. With no thought of trespassing, they watched the gaiety of the land owner and his family. At that moment a cruel groom appeared and was about to strike the young woman, when Dimitri shielded her with his arms. The Princess Olga, Brokoff's daughter, happened to be riding by when she saw this heartless attack upon the two peasants and quickly came to their rescue, bidding the groom be gone. This gained for her the eternal gratitude of the young Dimitri. A few days later as Dimitri and his aged father were gathering wood, a stray bullet from the rifle of a nobleman engaged in a pigeon shoot, wounded the old man. Dimitri rushed to his father's side and the young man's outcry of dismay brought the nobleman, who merely gave their victim a glance of contempt and passed by in the manner of the Pharisee. When Dimitri had assisted his father to their cottage, he came upon the highway and met a large party of rebellious peasants, who had prepared a petition, demanding a living wage from the land owners. Prince Brokoff and his friends happened by, read the petition and scornfully refused to consider it. This caused a spirit of anarchy among the peasants who set forth to take the Brokoff estate by storm. In vain Dimitri argued with them the futility of their attack. Finding he could accomplish nothing, he ran quickly to the nobleman's castle and forced his way into the banquet hall, where he endeavored to picture to Brokoff the horrors of the coming rebellion. There was but one listening ear, that of a dignitary of the church, who went to the steps and by his presence, which always had a strong influence upon the peasantry, induced them to depart. The Princess Olga had already been given an insight into the conditions of the people and now Dimitri's bravery appealed to her so strongly that she persuaded her father to give the peasantry an audience, which resulted in the institution of new conditions.
