A station agent's daughter has two lovers. The first is a villainous telegraph operator; the second is a poor but honest switchman. The girl is torn between her two loves. A telegram conveys the information that a shipment of gold has been consigned to the station presided over by the father of the station agent's daughter. The villainous telegraph operator learns of it and thinks up a summons plot. He summons to his assistance a highly unsuccessful crook who has just been released from prison, and, with a pair of assistant crooks, the gang is complete. The station agent, a simple-minded old person, is bound to a chair and the crooks take refuge behind him, so that when the door of the safe is blown off he may protect them from it. He does. At that moment his daughter enters, but the crooks flee with the gold. Then begins a chase. The crooks on a handcar are pursued by the sheriff's posse on a locomotive, the police force in a launch, the switchman in an automobile and the station agent's daughter on a motorcycle.

The will of T.W. Glutz provides that his bashful nephew, Hank, will inherit the entire estate if married by 2 P.M. of a certain date. Hank loves a girl who lives fifty miles away, but his uncle's executor, a lawyer, arranges a marriage with a somewhat antiquated home product. At 1 P.M. on the appointed day, Hank is sleeping off the effects of the night before. He wakens with a fever, a raging thirst, and an awful taste, when the lawyer enters and tells him the bride is waiting. "And my heart is fifty miles away," sadly muses Hank. At the home of the bride-to-be all is ready and everyone present except the prospective groom. If Hank does not arrive in fifteen minutes, the estate will go to endow a home for aged chauffeurs. The door opens. Hank and the lawyer arrive, the clergyman is ready, when Hank exclaims, "Oh pshaw, I've forgotten the license." Hank and the lawyer start for the city hall. The chief clerk, who is deaf, is tuning an organ. He demands two dollars for the license. Hank goes out, and finally gets the money by setting fire to a saloon, and returns at 1:57 P.M. He finds the clerk has gone to lunch, and the door is locked; Hank removes the door, gets the license and starts for the bride's home, but meets a beautiful woman in the park, and tears up the license. The prospective father-in-law comes along, takes Hank by the neck and shakes him. Hank escapes in abbreviated raiment, and with father-in-law in pursuit, joins a party of marathon runners. He is soon in the lead, passing a flock of birds, and an automobile going 120 miles an hour. He romps over the 50 mile course, tears under the wire, right into the arms of the girl he loves; and wins the girl, the prize, and a loving cup.

David Harding visits in his wanderings an old friend in the city of Barrnipore. He hears of a religious festival to be held in the Temple that night and of a wonderful diamond of incalculable value which is set in the forehead of the stone god of the Temple. He determines to risk a visit to the Temple and, disguising himself as a native, mingles among the worshipers undetected. His cupidity is aroused by the gem and in the night, when the throng has left the Temple, he pries out the jewel and attempts to escape with it. A Hindoo fakir nearby gives the alarm and Harding breaks away from the quick-gathering crowd with difficulty. He barely has time to reach his rooms, remove his disguise and leave the house before the angry natives are at the door. Sobered by his peril he at once leaves for America, ignorant of the fact that he is followed by the Hindoo priest and his assistants. In New York on a railroad train the natives manage to reach him as he lies in his berth and kill him. One of them falls from the train while they are doing this and plunges to his death below. The survivors fail to find the jewel. When Harding's will is read it is found that he has left all his property, including the jewel, to his niece, May Rowland. Among the first to congratulate the girl is Joe Marsden, her fiancé. May gives a party to celebrate the announcement of her engagement. While the party is happily occupied in the music room it is announced that Hindoo jugglers are outside. Joe goes outside and at once the priest, who is disguised as a juggler, exerts his powers of hypnotism over him. The rest of the party come to the door just in time to break the charm. That night the Hindoos come near the house and again the priest calls his powers into play. Joe feels the mysterious influence, rises in his slumbers and directed by the Hindoo's will, enters May's dressing room and takes the jewel from the drawer where it is hidden. As he comes from her room he is watched by a young man, who is a fellow guest, and who is badly in need of money. The jewel falls from Joe's grasp and is seized and hidden by the other man. In the meantime May has heard Joe's entrance into her room and has seen him take the jewel. Because of his supposed theft, May breaks her engagement with him. A celebrated detective is called in upon the case and with the assistance of his office boy, succeeds in unraveling the mystery, but not before a number of exciting events have occurred. The Hindoo priest succeeds in getting possession of the jewel and taking it back to his native land. The girl and her lover are reunited, and the jewel and the curse of its ownership forgotten.

Although their information as regards the location of the gang's hangout and its plans is complete, they are unable to produce evidence against the man circulating bad money. Suspicion rests, however, on James Dalton, a clever crook, who rarely visits the counterfeiters' room. Dalton gets rid of his bad money through unsuspected "fences." He has just succeeded in using Bob Brierly, a young prodigal from the west, who dropped his money on the great white way for this purpose. When the bartender who took the bad money discovers it he calls in the police. Dalton, as usual, escapes while Bob, innocent of the part he has played, is caught and convicted. Released from jail he meets Mae Edwards whom he had formerly befriended. She recommends him to her employer, a banker, and Brierly secures a responsible position. Thinking he has eluded the detectives, Dalton comes to the bank to look the ground over preparatory to a robbery which he is planning. He runs into Brierly and tries to make him an accomplice. Bob, who has married Mae Edwards and wishes to lead an honest life, relaxes. Dalton advises the banker that Bob is an ex-convict and Bob loses his position. Dalton's persistent efforts make it impossible for Bob to get work and he is forced to join the crook. Craig has been shadowing Dalton and knows that Bob is taking part in the proposed robbery against his will. Having made his plans beforehand Craig frustrates the robbery. Dalton alone gets away by going hand over hand across an electric cable between two skyscrapers. He is later caught in an exciting motor-boat chase. Craig then vindicates Bob and the banker gives him back his old position Bob goes home and tells Mae, and their cup of happiness is filled to overflowing.

He sees with envy the various tattooed designs upon the arms and chests of other members of the crew, and his first day ashore seizes the opportunity to have his own person treated in a like manner. On visiting Ali he is shown a book of designs, all of which he scorns until he sees the picture of the shrinking maiden standing in the chilly water. This meets his entire approval and at his request Ali tattoos the picture upon his chest. Now Genevieve, Dennis' sweetheart, is the energetic leader of the Purity League and conducts a militant campaign against all representations of the human figure unadorned. Raiding a shop where the "September Morn" is prominently displayed in the window, she meets her Waterloo and is washed out of the door by a powerful stream of water from a hose directed by the indignant proprietor. Smarting from her defeat she returns home just in time to greet Dennis proud of the aid to beauty which he has just acquired. Her horror at seeing the offending picture upon his chest may be imagined. The sorrowful Dennis is sent back to Ali to have the beauty clothed. Dennis does as bidden, but selects the split skirt for the purpose. When Genevieve sees the result she is even more indignant and insists upon accompanying Dennis to the tattoo artist, where she has the split skirt sewed up, the figure fully and respectably clothed and the "Votes for Women" added.

Also she notices that the big stores are giving double stamps in the morning. Consequently, Mrs. B. starts on a round of stamp collecting that would get most households to sit up and take notice. At 12 o'clock Mr. Billy returns. Mrs. Billy is still absent, so the lonely representative of the strong sex starts in to get his own lunch. In the midst of it he is interrupted by a call at the bell and goes to open the door, admitting a boy with about fifty bundles. While he sits down to examine these, the kitchen is flooded and when he returns he finishes his lunch knee deep in water. This gives him a cold and he promptly goes to bed, where Mrs. B. finds him when she returns. She then goes for the doctor, but finding that he gives double stamps for morning calls, postpones the trip for the next day, while poor little Billy lies in bed sick. After the doctor's visit the next day, Mrs. Billy has only one page left to fill, so she buys a coffin at an undertaking establishment where they give stamps. Then she goes to a premium parlor and gets in return for all her books the loveliest little lamp that ever sold for 98c. This she brings home and promptly lights. Of course, the fool thing explodes and the whole house is set on fire, poor Billy dancing an accompaniment with the playing of the hose in his bare feet. In the midst of all the confusion Mr. Solemncoly, the undertaker, enters with the coffin. The result can be better imagined than told. Anyhow, Mrs. Billy never saved another stamp.

The Dynamiters

Jenkins, a club man, has a humorous experience that should be a very strong temperance lecture in pantomime. He is returning from a night of it with convivial companions when he meets a party discussing the woes of the down-trodden laboring classes. Jenkins has taken on a talking jag and he waxes eloquent, descanting on the subject. He has an anarchist for an auditor and as the crowd disperses the agitator takes the tipsy orator in tow and guides him to the rendezvous of his co-conspirators. They descend a flight of stairs with Jenkins blindfolded. The members of the gang appear masked and Jenkins is persuaded to take an oath which binds him to the tasks of righting wrongs. Lots are drawn and Jenkins takes out the fatal black cube and is given a bomb with clockwork attachment with the injunction to demolish a manufacturing plant. We see Jenkins tipsily wending his way homeward, lugging the infernal machine. He throws himself on the bed and awakens, thoroughly sobered, with the destroyer on his hands. He hears the ticking of the machinery and knows the hour or the explosion is fast approaching. He dashes out and endeavors to lose the machine, dodging into stores and shops. The infernal machine is invariably returned to the luckless agitator and in desperation, he drops it in a park where it is restored to him by an intelligent dog. Happy thought, he will employ the sagacity of the canine to extricate himself from the dilemma. He passes the stairway leading to the habitation of the anarchists and instructs the dog to deposit the bomb below. The dog does so and rejoins Jenkins and they make a run for it. The dynamite explodes, wrecking the surrounding territory, and Jenkins escapes with his clothing rent, but otherwise intact.

A Manly Man

Norman Duncan, a civil engineer in the employ of the United …
Norman Duncan, a civil engineer in the employ of the United States government, loves Elinor Williams and they are happy in their plighted troth. Duncan is ordered to the Philippines to take charge of some important work and takes an affectionate leave of his sweetheart to whom he promises to be faithful. We see him arrive at his destination, and take in the tropical surroundings. The young engineer is red blooded and human. He finds time hanging heavily on his hands and seeks diversion. He finds it in Lola, a beautiful Filipino girl, with Juno-like form and handsome face. She gives him a passing glance and Duncan is interested. He seeks the girl, and she is not averse to the attentions of the handsome young man from the states. Petro, her lover, takes in the situation, which bodes no good for the interloper. Lola and Duncan meet and the love affair is progressing beyond his fondest expectations. Returning from his foray into the swamps one day, Duncan is stricken with the deadly fever. He is overcome and his companions desert him, fearing the contagion. Lola finds him and, braving the ravages of the disease, assists him away. This episode is witnessed by the jealous native lover, who curses them, hoping his fickle sweetheart and her lover will both succumb to the dread fever. We see Lola nursing Duncan back to life and health, faithful in her duties as a nurse, and glorious in her satisfaction of saving the life of the man whom she loves with all the passion of the Latin women. Slowly Duncan regains his strength and we see him emerge from the hut supported by the faithful Lola. He is seated out of doors, when Petro appears and is surprised to see him alive. Stung to desperation in his jealousy, Petro steals up and is about to plunge a knife into Duncan's back, when the girl throws herself upon him, wrests the knife from his grasp and sends it spinning into the foliage. Petro and Duncan grapple, when a priest providently makes his appearance and Petro desists with an abject apology. In a few words, the situation is explained to the man of God, who with a keen discernment of right, inquires of the young engineer as to his intentions towards the native girl. He sternly insists that honorable union can be the only result of their relations. Duncan ponders and then his better nature asserts itself, and he assents to the marriage. The ceremony is performed. Later, Duncan, in the garb of a Filipino, is seated in his yard. His boy, the result of the marriage, comes to him. An American appears and questions Petro, who is standing near. The stranger inquires for Duncan and Petro, alert, his jealousy having not abated by the marriage of Duncan and Lola, points to Duncan. There is a recognition. Duncan is pleased to welcome his friend. He is informed that Elinor the sweetheart whom he left in the state, is outside the gate. Duncan is overjoyed. Elinor runs to him and there is a happy reunion. He is holding her in his arms when Lola approaches, terrified at the sight. She understands and humble makes her way to Duncan's side. He sees her and is racked with conflicting emotions. His wife and sweetheart, which? Sorrowfully he breaks the intelligence to Elinor, who stands aghast. She understands. The woman he has sworn to love and cherish holds out her arms to him. The girl, to whom he plighted his troth, assumes the same attitude, less demonstrative. Elinor sorrowfully walks away, and Duncan seats himself in anguish and then takes Lola in his arms and she is supremely happy and Duncan is content, a manly man.

The happy married life of George Norman is brought to a rude close with the death of his wife, who leaves him in her stead a tiny baby. Within a few days Norman is called to Europe on business for a protracted stay and places his baby in the hands of Nurse Roberts, who has other babies to take care of besides Norman's. Norman's baby dies and Mrs. Roberts, not wishing to have this source of income cut off, substitutes the child of a poor widow, who can seldom if ever pay for the baby's keep anyway. Six years elapse and Norman returns and sends for his boy, who is now growing to be a sturdy youngster. Almost immediately his son shows a liking for the piano and Norman advertises for a music teacher. Who should answer this ad, but Mrs. Smith, the real mother of the boy. Things proceed nicely until one day Norman receives a letter from Mrs. Roberts saying that she is about to die and desiring to clear her conscience, tells him that the boy he calls his own is really the son of Mrs. Smith. Norman tells the music teacher, who is overjoyed, but at the moment of separation complications arise; the boy has learned to love both. There is but one way out of it and the youngster sees it quicker than anyone else; and following his suggestion the two lonesome mortals agree that to marry each other is the only way by which both can enjoy the society of the one who has entwined himself about their hearts.

At the Duke's Command

The scene opens at the …
The scene opens at the termination of a dance where the Duke of Chatmoss is supported by his nephew and his daughter to the throne, the daughter occupying the place of honor by his side. One of the court maids approaches and the Duke's nephew, Edward, falls in love with her instantly, and his love is reciprocated. The aged Duke notes the beautiful maiden and is also smitten by her charms. In his infatuation he sends his hunch-backed serf to her apartment commanding her immediate appearance before him. The cunning hunchback discovers that his master has been forestalled by the nephew, who is the accepted lover of Irma, the maid. His master, the Duke, is apprised of this fact, and when the girl appears before the Duke the old gallant immediately overwhelms her with his attentions, but she, in her righteous indignation, repulses him. The Duke is wrathy, and in his rage vows to win the frightened girl. She runs immediately to Edward and tells him of the occurrence. Edward is indignant and strides into the presence of his uncle, the Duke, demanding an explanation. There is a war of words, the nephew and the Duke growing excited, the hunchback fearing harm to himself stands aside with a drawn sword. The Duke coolly tells Edward he must renounce all hope of winning the maid. Angered to desperation, Edward draws his sword to attack the Duke, but is prevented by the hunchback. The Duke summons the guard and commends them to disarm his nephew and take him to the dungeon and torture him. To add to the cruelty of his purpose, the Duke has Irma seized, and taken to the cell where Edward is confined, and there a mock trial is held, and the nephew ordered to the torture chamber. During the time of the torture the hunchback is pacing quickly to and fro between the dungeon, reception room and the girl's chamber. The Duke in forms Irma that the price of the lover's life is herself. She refuses, and the trap-door is opened, showing the agonized girl her lover on the rack, being seared and tortured. She consents to sacrifice herself and the torture ceases. The Duke is satisfied at the result of his diabolical method of winning the girl. The hunchback is commanded to bring the girl to the bed-chamber of the Duke. Irma left alone in a fit of desperation, sears her face with a red-hot poker, horribly disfiguring her beautiful face. She accompanies the hunchback into the presence of the amorous old Duke, wearing a veil. The Duke lifting the veil is horrified at the face of the woman, who was once so beautiful. He renounces all pursuit of her and consents his nephew to appear in the audience chamber, where Irma is still veiled. The Duke announced to Edward that he must marry her, being possessed of the idea that the girl will be cast aside by Edward when he gazes on her once-beautiful face. Edward is all too willing, and raising the veil is shocked at the result of her sacrifice, but draws her towards him in a fond, loving embrace and leads her away; loving her in spite of her blemished face.
