The story is simply that of misplaced confidence, that of deception practiced by a renegade Englishman of attractive personality and high social training upon characters more simple and true-hearted. He has left a wife behind him to retrieve lost fortunes and social position in the ivory trade where climatic conditions are such that the place, Sierra Leone, is known as "the white man's grave." This renegade, before starting on an expedition to the unexplored interior, trifles with the affections of Maida Verne, a French Sudanese girl, who has been educated at the mission, and becomes something of a favorite with the English colony. She is engaged to the son of a native king, a young man modernized by an education at Oxford, but still retaining the best of native ideals. He is almost unnaturally magnanimous in stepping aside when he believes that Maida is to wed the Englishman, but he discovers that the latter has a wife living while the two are on the expedition returning from a successful search for ivory. The two men fight in a canoe, and the native is apparently drowned. The renegade escapes, but the native returns to their starting point in time to save Maida and execute terrible vengeance.

Henry de Spain, a young …
Henry de Spain, a young mountaineer of about twenty-eight, is made general manager of the Thief River Stage Line because he has nerve and can shoot. It is understood that he is to "clean up" the gang of outlaws in Morgan Gap, led by Duke Morgan, with whose pretty niece, Nan, de Spain is in love. Sassoon starts the trouble by a knifing, but de Spain catches him. The laugh is soon turned, though, for Sassoon escapes and soon after de Spain himself is wounded in a fight with about seven of the Morgan gang. He is severely wounded and falls from the horse. The horse runs away, and de Spain is left there unconscious. He is finally discovered by Nan, who cannot forget her resentment even when she sees that he is half dead. Later she learns the true story of his attack by her relatives and from his own lips the reason of his being a gunman. This was that his father was shot in the back by one of the mountaineers and soon after his mother had died from the effects of the shock, leaving him with a birthmark to commemorate his father's tragic death. Nan is won over to his side the more easily that she is already half in love with the handsome gunman. A few days later she helps him escape. Afterwards, although he takes every opportunity for seeing her, they seldom meet and her uncle very nearly succeeds in marrying her to her worthless cousin, Gale Morgan. Duke Morgan is thrown from his horse and seriously hurt. Nan comes to nurse him at the hospital, where de Spain has been since he was shot. De Spain leaves soon after her arrival, but comes to see her under the pretext of bringing supplies. It is while there that she at last surrenders to his pleading and consents to become formally "engaged." Gale learns of the affair and tells Duke. Nan is forced to confess her love for de Spain and her uncle tells her that she will never marry him. Gale wins old Duke's permission to marry Nan and the girl is kept a prisoner in her room until she will consent to marrying her cousin. One night de Spain gets the following message: "Take me away from here as soon as you can." He knows it is from Nan. He rides to the Morgan ranch, and overhears Duke and Gale planning Nan's marriage. He reveals himself and holds the men at bay while he and Nan, who has appeared, escape. Sassoon, a bad man, nearly kills de Spain, but the latter manages to get a successful shot at his enemy and they reach town, where he takes Nan to the home of one of his friends. Henry de Spain learns that old Duke Morgan was the one who killed his father. Nan, broken-hearted, starts back to her uncle to learn the truth. She tries to bring him to de Spain, but they are caught in a blizzard, and only saved by de Spain just as they are about to succumb. Duke tells de Spain that he and Sassoon both shot at his father, but that they never knew which shot proved fatal, and they learned, to their horror soon after, that de Spain was not the man they were after, who had killed a member of their clan. There is a make-shift wedding ceremony performed right there in the snow, for old Duke gives in at last to the lovers, but later at the settlement there is a more elaborate wedding, which serves to unite the two enemy factions.

Ted Ewing, a young New Yorker, is the guardian of Nora Hildreth, with whom he is in love. He invests her fortune of $50,000 and an equal amount of his own money (constituting almost his entire property) in a stock exchange speculation. When this speculation apparently fails he seeks to reimburse the girl by taking out a life insurance policy in her favor and then killing himself. But, as the policy has a clause invalidating it in case of suicide, he has to arrange an "accidental death" for himself, and, to this end, enters into an arrangement with the chief of the S.S.S., a blackmailing society which has already threatened his life. The humorous complications really begin when it develops that the money has not been lost but doubled, so that Ted, instead of wishing to die, has every reason imaginable for wishing to live. It is, however, almost impossible to break his sworn pact with the S.S.S. and his own Japanese valet, to whom he gave the money to pay for his death, refuses to divert the money from the one use to which it has been pledged. The manner in which Ted manages to escape from his own plots against his own life, and the details of his romance with Nora form the concluding episodes of this highly amusing photodrama.

The picture opens with the Gypsy camp and the assignation made there between Lothario and Musette, the daughter of Giarno, the leader of the Gypsies. Learning of their proposed meeting, Giarno declares vengeance on Lothario, to whom Musette hastens to give warning. At his palace the Gypsy girl learns for the first time that her lover is already married and is the father of baby Mignon. Her wild despair in consequence causes her to throw herself over the cliffs into the ocean. In the midst of the excitement, following this suicide, baby Mignon slips unobserved from the palace and, wandering too near the brink, also falls over the cliff, but is providentially saved by an out-jetting bush. Meanwhile Giarno has gone to the water's edge to reclaim the dead body of Musette from the waves and here sees Mignon's fall. Thinking to revenge himself on Lothario, he scrambles up the rocks and steals the child. This rapid succession of tragic events hastens the death of Lothario's wife, and Lothario, observing the disaster that follows his one moment's indiscretion, rushes insanely from the palace to begin his mad wanderings over western Europe. At this point the thread of the story is dropped to be picked up again years later, when Mignon has blossomed into maidenhood of 16 years. She follows Giarno's Gypsy train. He delights in cruelty toward her. He prizes her, however, because her exquisite dancing has become a source of revenue. One day she refuses to dance before a party of ladies and gentlemen, but Giarno, blacksnake in hand, is driving her to it, when Lothario, who is wandering by in rags, and carrying his old harp, tries to interfere. The Gypsy leader is too much for him, however. Shortly afterward Wilhelm Meister rides into the scene and succeeds in quelling Giarno from whom he later buys Mignon. The Gypsy-stolen maiden falls in love with Wilhelm, but finds a rival in Filina, the celebrated actress. Having spied upon a love-scene between the two, Mignon becomes convinced that Wilhelm is not intended for her, so starts to wander away with Lothario, but she cannot so easily tear her affections from the man who rescued her from Giarno. Leading Lothario, she follows Wilhelm again to a grand reception given by Frederick, one of Filina's suitors, in honor of the actress. She manages to smuggle herself and Lothario into the palace, again sees Filina making love to Wilhelm and, hoping to win favor and strengthen her own cause, steals to Filina's room and dresses herself in one of Filina's gowns. When she presents herself to Wilhelm in this attire, he commands her to take it off, but he shortly follows her up the stairs to soothe her wounded feelings. This gives Filina an idea. The old count, Frederick's uncle, objects to the youth's infatuation for Filina. It is agreed, therefore, that Filina is to follow Wilhelm into her room, the count is to discover the two of them there and is to demand an explanation, after which the only course left open for Wilhelm is to marry the actress. The plot seems to work nicely. Wilhelm declares that Filina is to be his wife. It was thought that Mignon had left the room. Instead she had secreted herself behind some curtains and hears Wilhelm's words. Filina discovers the Gypsy after Wilhelm and the count have taken their departure, and locks Mignon in the room. Wilhelm escorts Filina into the ballroom to announce their engagement, but scarcely have the words left his mouth when he detects the plot between the actress and the count. He therefore declares a change of mind and Frederick, in an impetuous desire to defend Filina's honor, challenges him to a duel. Some time before Mignon, in a burst of despair, has made a wish that the place might burn down. These thoughtless words take possession of Lothario's mad brain, and he proceeds to put the wish into execution. Wilhelm, who is in the midst of his duel with Frederick, sees the flames and rushes to learn that Mignon is locked in Filina's room. He makes his way through the fire to the doomed room, but Mignon. who wishes nothing better than death, now that she knows Wilhelm is to marry another, goes to the window and threatens to dash herself to the ground if he comes near her. Only after Wilhelm assures her that he loves but her, does she consent to the rescue. When they reach the courtyard, Wilhelm falls in a half-faint and submits to Filina's caresses, thinking that they are Mignon's. Mignon, observing this, believes Wilhelm's promises to her false and so again wanders away with Lothario. The two of them eventually happen near Lothario's former palace. The inn-keeper remembers him and leads him home. Here the recognition is consummated. The cloud rolls bark from Lothario's mind. He is once again the master, and Mignon his daughter. Wilhelm who has ridden out in search of the supposed Gypsy girl, finds her in new splendor and the romance has its ending in their plighted vows.

John Gray was the confidential clerk of William Hendricks, a banker, who had amassed considerable wealth by various dubious methods. The clerk did not approve of his employer's business methods, but lacked the courage to seek another position. Into Gray's life came his first romance in the person of the new office stenographer, a pretty young girl. She accorded him a frank liking, and he dared to dream of the time when she would be his wife. His masterful employer, however had noticed the girl's attractions, and flattered her by his attentions, and she became his wife. The clerk, his romance blasted, yet felt that her future would be far more secure as the banker's wife. As the years passed the business of the firm declined, and to save himself from ruin the banker defrauded his creditors by concealing parts of his assets. The clerk was an accomplice to the act, and knew that if detected it meant prison for them both. But when Mrs. Hendricks died, alone and neglected, while her husband drank with a boon companion, the mouse-like characteristics of the clerk died, and he became a man. To punish the man who had cared too little for the woman he loved, the clerk revealed evidence which sent his employer to prison, and although it meant his own punishment, he did so gladly, for he had ceased to care for life the day that his loved one died.

Helen's Stratagem

John Rockwood, an energetic young lawyer, was …
John Rockwood, an energetic young lawyer, was nominated for district attorney, by a political party which had been long out of power, and whose shrewd boss, Martin Rowley, determined should control the destinies of the city. Rockwood, brilliant and popular, was sure to draw many votes, and after his nomination it became clear that his election was almost a foregone conclusion. The candidate's little sister, Helen, a girl of sixteen, had been, since childhood, a cripple. Crampton, a wealthy manufacturer, was a persistent violator of the fire ordinances, and, as a result, many of his employees were injured in a fire. The district attorney refused to interfere, but when John's attention was drawn to the matter. He promised to prosecute vigorously, if elected. Crampton, in alarm, consulted Rowley, who told him that John's statement was merely a campaign story, and that he would not be harmed. Rowley felt safe in making this promise, for John was a devoted admirer of his daughter, Maude, and he believed that he would do anything rather than lose favor with her. To calm Crampton's fears, Rowley wrote John, telling him that he had assured the manufacturer that there would be no prosecution in the event of Rockwood's election, but to his amazement, he received a letter stating that John would have nothing to do with such a dishonest transaction. Rowley angrily called up John on the telephony and the candidate listened with amazement to what the boss said. Helen, who was in the room, timidly touched John on the arm, and the amazed young man listened to a confession from his little sister which surprised and touched him. The letter he had written to Rowley assured the boss that he would comply with his wishes. Helen read the letter, and, grief-stricken that her brother could stoop so low, destroyed it and substituted a missive which angrily rejected the boss' proposal. Shamed by Helen's action, John turned to the telephone and told the boss that he meant every word he said. A boss generally can revenge himself upon a disobedient candidate, and John fully expected that his career was ended. The election, however, was very satisfactory to John, for he was triumphantly elected district attorney, and, best of all, he found that the grim old politician respected a man who was a good fighter and considered him worthy of his daughter's hand.

George Duhamel, a young Frenchman, visits New Orleans and there meets Cora, a Creole, with whom he falls in love. He takes her with him when he returns to Paris, and in spite of the efforts of his mother and friends, refuses to give her up. Cora becomes interested in Mazilier, a wealthy young man, and Duhamel becomes jealous. Cora fans the flame by threatening to leave him, and in a jealous quarrel a pistol is discharged and Cora is wounded in the shoulder. She prefers a charge of attempted murder against Duhamel. He is tried, convicted and sentenced to the galley for five years. At the end of five years, Duhamel has served his sentence and been released, but, in defiance of Article 47 of the Code, which forbids ex-convicts to reside in Paris, resides in that city with his mother under the name of Gerard. He falls in love with and marries Marcelle, a young girl, and they are ideally happy, until he accidentally meets with Cora, who is conducting a gambling house in Paris. Cora threatens to denounce him to the police and compels him to frequent her establishment, which results in Marcelle suspecting her husband of being unfaithful. Marcelle finally follows George to Cora's home, and learns from her husband's own lips the story of his life. Realizing what he has suffered at Cora's hands, Marcelle forgives him and declines to give him up, whereupon Cora writes a letter to the police, denouncing Duhamel as an ex-convict, who has violated the provisions of Article 47 by residing in Paris. The police receive the letter. Duhamel is arrested at his home, and brought to Cora to be identified. She triumphantly declares him to be the man, and Duhamel is about to be taken off to prison when an official arrives with a full pardon and Duhamel is released. Cora, frantic at being baffled of her revenge, goes mad, while Duhamel and Marcelle, forever free from the menace of Article 47, face a happy future.
