Claude Bennett, a handsome young fellow, occupies a desk in his father's bank, but does not earn his salt. He has an artistic temperament, and has done some clever sketching, but has never earned a dollar in his life. Idling one morning at his desk, he draws a ridiculous cartoon of his father, which comes to the attention of the bank president, who summarily tells Claude that the town is not big enough for him. After a moment's reflection, Claude replies with spirit that he will go west. Claude Bennett develops into "Chip," a lively young cowboy on the Flying "U" Ranch down in Texas. Whitmore, the "Old Man" of the ranch, is a hard worker, and does not spare himself any more than he does the boys. Chip becomes an all-around man after a number of adventures in which the wildest bronchos test his staying powers as a rider, and one day the "Old Man" tells him to hook up the team and drive to the station. Chip is told to meet the "old man's" sister, who is a woman doctor. While putting on his other shirt to drive to town, Chip discusses the prospective arrival of the "old maid doctor," and they conjure up visions of an ancient she-dragon, with a face like a lemon. Chip awaits around in a dejected manner until the train pulls in. He is delighted to discover that the "old maid doctor'' is a very pretty charming, young girl. Chip improves the time during the ride to the ranch to get well acquainted with the "little doctor," as he already begins to call her in his own mind, whereas she discovers in this tanned and sprightly young cowboy many of the elements which go to make up a hero, especially in the mind of a young girl. She demonstrates her skill with the rifle by shooting a coyote, this feat of arms putting Chip absolutely at her mercy. He succumbs entirely to her natural fascination. Chip still does a little sketching now and then, some of which comes to the attention of the "little doctor," who encourages him to paint a really good picture. An accident occurs in which Chip is thrown from his horse and dragged at the end of a lasso over the plains at a gallop. His pet cayuse breaks a leg and Chip is about to end its misery with a bullet when the "little doctor" announces that she can set the leg with splints. She does so, and another arrow from Cupid's bow goes to the heart of Chip. Then Chip is laid up with a sprained ankle and the "little doctor" takes care of him. During his recovery he gets to work on the picture, which he paints with great natural skill, and the "Old Man's" silent partner, Dunk, who comes to the ranch on a visit, sees the painting and promises to take it to the city and show it to someone with a knowledge of art. The picture sells for a good fat check. The "little doctor" captivates everybody. Even Patsy the cook, with his dirty apron, succumbs to her charms, and when she makes a professional visit to the kitchen and orders him to "clean up," he obeys after much grumbling. The "Old Man" hears the rattling of tins and kettles in the kitchen and makes an investigation. Patsy has the floor covered with soap suds, and is scrubbing away with great spirit. The "Old Man" dashes into the kitchen and sprawls all over the floor, sliding on the soap suds. He has it in his heart to murder Patsy and starts after him, but Patsy slides through the door on another installment of soap suds, and the "Old Man" toboggans down the steps after him. The "little doctor"' is always up to something. She has all the cowboys her slaves, with Chip the worst of the lot. She gets a letter stating that Dr. Cecil Grantham, whose name Chip has heard her mention before and whom he looks upon as a formidable rival, is going to arrive on the next day's train, for a visit to the "little doctor." Chip feels very much disturbed in spirit. He imagines that Dr. Grantham is coming to claim his bride, and the "little doctor" mischievously leads him to think so. So Chip is chosen as the instrument to bring his rival to the ranch, being ordered to accompany the "little doctor" in the buckboard. and greet the expected visitor. They pull another one on Chip, for the formidable Dr. Cecil Grantham is a sweet and saucy miss, a classmate of the "little doctor." Chip is so happy over the outcome that he visibly shows it and the girls have a great deal of fun at his expense, in consequence. The "Old Man" becomes infatuated with the new arrival. Dunk, who has fallen in love with the "little doctor," finds himself outclassed by Chip, and that he hasn't a chance. He shows his jealousy, whereupon he is given to understand in unmistakable terms, that he is not in it. Dunk "beats" it for the railroad station. Then follow gay days at the ranch. Chip saves the "little doctor's"' life when she is pursued by a locoed stallion, and there is no more coquetry on her part. The "Old Man" wins the "little doctor's'' chum, and when the announcement is made and each loving couple confesses to the others, the "Old Man" sends Patsy for a bottle of wine, so that they can all drink to each other's health.

His frail but patient wife and baby boy are packed into the prairie schooner and the journey is started. Booze's brutality becomes worse as the days pass, and soon his wife dies, leaving little Joe to the mercy of his drunken father. After a crude burial they resume the journey northward. They come upon a party of renegade Indians, and Booze decides to leave the boy with them. He effects a trade and little Joe becomes the property of the tribe, while Booze goes on in his search for gold. Tonoma, an old squaw, takes a fancy to the child and befriends him. Two years pass by. Little Joe is generally disliked by the tribe and is forced to endure many hardships. Finally he runs away. Wandering to the river bottom, he is found by Larry Tompkins, a big-hearted miner. Tompkins hears the boy's story and buys him from the tribe. Seeing old Tonoma's affection for the child, he makes another trade for the squaw, and the three start on the long trail northward to Larry's mine. Time passes on, Larry feels happy in his responsibility, and his hitherto rough shack takes on the air of a well-cared-for home. By coincidence Booze Marcy calls at the shack one day in an effort to secure Larry's mine. Larry refuses to sell his valuable possession. Marcy notices the boy and squaw and recognizes his son, little Joe. Failing to secure the mine, Marcy secures an order from the court, which gives him possession of his child. This action almost breaks poor Larry's heart, for he has grown to love the boy. Booze again starts in his brutal abuse toward the child. Big-hearted Larry cannot stand for this and rather than leave the child to the mercy of his degenerate father, he gives Booze a quit-claim deed to his mine and takes little Joe forever unto himself.

Part One: The Williams family are en route west, when they are overtaken by the Danites and all are killed but Nancy Williams and her little brother, Georgie. They eventually are picked up by another emigrant train and allowed to go on with them. The Danites return to their chief, where they report all but two are killed and receive orders to pick up their trail and never leave it until they, too, are killed. They proceed on their quest and incidentally join the emigrant train of which Nancy and Georgie are members. Stopping for the night, the "Danites," Hickman and Carter, recognize little Georgie, and seeing their chance, kill him and ride away. Nancy gets her gun and starts after them. Nancy, being unable to find the murderers, returns to the camp and finds it deserted, except for the grave of little Georgie. From the top of a hill she sees a hunter's cabin, and an idea comes to her and she makes her way to it. Entering, she cuts her hair and takes a suit of the hunter's son's clothes and, changing, is always known as Billy Piper. Part Two: Billy Piper, a new arrival, inquires of Parson, the town drunkard, where he can lodge, and has just received his answer when Limber Tim arrives with news of the arrival of a new teacher. All the men prepare a welcome for "him" when they are taken off their feet by the entrance of a young woman, who is subsequently dubbed the "widow." Billy Piper is overjoyed at seeing one of her own kind, and these two become good friends. The men, too, have fallen victims and despite their sudden revolution as to looks and presents, maintains a laughing mien, and still favors Billy. Hickman and Carter, men of the Danite clan, suspect Billy Piper of being the woman they are seeking and follow her as she leaves to visit the "widow." The Danites arrive at the cottage and look in the window where the "widow" and Billy are talking. Billy sees them and faints. He is resuscitated by the "widow "" who discovers his sex, but promises to keep his secret. A year elapses. Sandy and the "widow," married, are receiving congratulations from their friends upon the arrival of an heir. The Danites, however, still sure that Billy is Nancy Williams, resolve to be convinced, and as Billy spends nearly all his time at the widow's, write a note to her husband, Sandy, warning him to "keep an eye on Billy."

The story depicts in a thrilling manner the intertwining affections of a young American army Lieutenant, his famous charger named "Bunkie," a passionate Apache maiden who is a hostage at the fort, and the Lieutenant's avowed sweetheart, daughter of the commandant of the Arizona army post. Lieut. Brooks, of the cavalry, owns a famous army horse. He is engaged to Miss Ford, who lives with her father, the Major, at the post. One day Brooks is ordered out to round up a band of renegade Apaches. The Indians ambush the detachment; the handful of soldiers is slain. Brooks lies wounded at the mouth of a canyon. "Bunkie" succeeds in bringing Brooks to his senses. Brooks pulls himself to "Bunkie's" back and the horse starts for the post. Indians pursue and "Bunkie" barely reaches the fort gate in time. Naida, daughter of an Apache chief, falls in love with Brooks while helping to nurse him. One night, delirious, Brooks thinks he hears the battle call, aims himself and escapes from his room to the corral to find his beloved '"Bunkie." Naida follows him. Brooks embraces "Bunkie" with touching affection. Naida, savage-like, is beside herself with jealousy. She snatches the revolver from the semi-conscious Brooks' belt, grasps him suddenly and gives him the choice of fleeing with her into the mountains then and there, or having "Bunkie" shot on the spot.

The town of Martinique is attacked, sacked, and Governor Gonzales and his soldiers are captured by the nefarious Blackbeard and his pirate band. The Governor, his wife and her friends are all taken to the pirate ship. The Governor is made to walk the plank before his horrified wife, but his rescue comes unexpectedly at the hands of Conchita, his wife's maid, who grasps a knife from a pirate, dives overboard, cuts the Governor's bonds, and both swim away. They succeed in reaching land, where some kind fishermen recognize the Governor and take him and his companion to their cottage. But on board the ship the prisoners are hustled into the boat, tied to the rings, and Blackbeard prepares to suffocate them with sulfur. The fishermen have sighted an English man-o'-war, and they hasten to the Governor who boards the vessel, and after explaining his predicament, the commander of the vessel orders the deck cleared for battle. But the pirate vessel has likewise sighted the British man-o'-war, and prepares for action. Blackbeard orders the sulfur to be lighted, and then leaves to superintend preparations on deck. A shot pierces the side of the vessel, allowing the welcome air in to somewhat revive the prisoners. Right is might, and the pirate is boarded by the English sailors and the pirates put to rout. Blackbeard and his ringleaders are hung at the yardarms of his own vessel.

James Morley, superintendent of the Crown Hill oil refinery, is unable to cope with the rough element in the works. Jack Hartway asks for a position, and Mr. Hastings discharges Morley. Hartway is duly installed as the new superintendent, and his first act is to put up a sign that Rooney, the bully, has formerly resented. Rooney tears the sign down, goes to the office to confront Hartway, is knocked down, and is made to nail the sign up again. But Rooney swears revenge, and sends his tool, Old Grogan, to Hartway with a note, telling him to leave town in twenty-four hours. Hartway only laughs at the implied threat, and answers that they can go "as far as they like." They plan to have Old Grogan fire the works. Hartway has met Hasting's daughter and fallen in love with her. He is spending the evening with her, when he hears that the plant is on fire. Hartway rushes away. He finds Rooney in a saloon, accuses him of the crime, and Rooney tries to escape, but is overtaken by Hartway and given a thrashing. Jack is about to be knocked down by two of Rooney's gang, when Mabel, who has seen the fight, shoots one of them. They get away, but Rooney is arrested and sentenced to prison.

The government has long had very stringent laws against the selling of spiritous liquors to the Indians. This traffic is known as "bootlegging." When Sgt. Hunt, of the 8th Cavalry, stationed at old Fort Whipple, in southern Arizona, found a drunken Apache, with a tell-tale flask, he reported at once to Col. Moberlyn, who ordered Capt. Frazier with a detachment, to find the bootlegging miscreant. The captain galloped away to the nearest ranch house, where lived Jim Fancher, his wife, and daughter, and Romero, a half-breed foreman, whom the captain suspected. The troopers look up quarters in the barn on the hay. Romero saw he was suspected. He escaped, mounted his horse, met the Apache band, and made a night attack on the ranch, murdering the troopers as they slept and firing the house, to which the sergeant had escaped. Jim bethought him of an old subterranean passage, dug to the river bank and by this means made their way to the fort. Romero rode to the colonel to exculpate himself, and tell how he had fought with the whites. When the captain arrived, and confronted him, the bootlegger made a dash for his horse. He was followed by the captain, who held the bridle until assistance came, and the bootlegger was given very short shrift for his crime.

The Civil War has begun, and Mace Brewer goes to the front, leaving his young wife alone. His friend, Joe Saunders, also has to leave his aged mother and answer the call of duty to his country. The misfortunes of war claim Mace, and at night as Joe, sorely wounded, limps off the battlefield, he leaves Mace for dead. Soldiers burying the dead, discover life in Mace and he is hurried to the hospital, where the surgeons succeed in reviving him. Thinking Mace dead, Joe writes to his mother of this tragedy, and she sadly shows the letter to the wife. Joe returns. Mace's widow calls for the details of his death. After recovering from the operation it is found that Mace's mind is affected, and he is taken to an asylum for treatment. A year passes and we see Joe a sturdy blacksmith, being visited in his shop by his mother and the widow with whom he is plainly in love, but he lacks the courage to tell her so. Finally one Sunday on the way home from church, he manages to slip a note into her hand. He has asked her to place a lamp in the window that night if his answer is to be "yes." Fearfully Joe watches for that light and is overjoyed when it appears. Mary accepts him. At the close of another year, Joe and Mary are supremely happy in the possession of a baby. These two years have completely restored Mace to health and reason and he is discharged from the asylum. So he goes back to his home. Mace seeks his friend Joe. The horror of recognition almost makes a madman of Joe, and when Mary comes in and sees this man as if from the dead, the shock is so great she falls insensible upon the floor. Poor Mary must decide between them. She loves Joe twofold, for himself and also because he is the father of her child. But old fashioned ideas of honor compel her to sorrowfully place her baby in the arms of the father, and to go with her lawful husband.

Claus Valerius, a Roman patrician, wounded at the head of his Legion, came to his country home to recuperate, accompanied by his friend Epicurus, an old Roman voluptuary. Loitering about his beautiful grounds one day, he came upon one of his servants, a young female slave, so deeply engrossed in reading from a scroll that she was entirely unconscious of his presence Curious at seeing so much knowledge in a young girl, he asked her to read her tablets and found her to belong to that strange new sect called Christians. He talked much with her and became interested as the beauties of her faith were unfolded to him, and he realized its spirituality and unselfishness, especially when contrasted with the sodden materialism of old Epicurus, who wished to have her whipped. One day as he slept on a bench in the garden, a great tarantula crept fearfully close to his neck. The slave girl, at the risk of her life, dashed it to the ground and more than ever Valerius wondered at the Christian spirit of self-sacrifice. To put her to the test, he agreed with Epicurus that her life should be threatened if she did not sacrifice to Venus, and she was willing to die by torture rather than do so. More and more the sweet influence of the girl grew upon Valerius and the greedy old Epicurus, seeing how things were going, hastened back to Rome to tell Emperor Caligula, secure the forfeiture of his estates, and so feather his own nest. Realizing at last that he loved the girl, Valerius called her to him and wished to confer upon her the honor of concubinage, but to his surprise, she esteemed it not an honor but an ignominy, and confessing her love for him, preferred death to shame. At last love, pure and whole, conquered him and he sought her out to tell her that he would marry her according to her Christian rites. But it was too late, Epicurus and a soldier, bearing the mandate of Caligula approached. Even now they triumphed over the cruelty of the Emperor by dying in each other's arms.

In the story of the Novice, a young Spanish Duke is shown as a boy of religious and ascetic nature, overwhelmed by the cares and weighty duties of state. His uncle, a scheming and crafty politician, who rules through him, using the sweet-natured boy as his tool, proves so overbearing and so overloads him with care, that he resolves to leave all his worldly pomp and take refuge in the arms of the Mother Church. He flies to the Franciscan Fathers, who put him upon probation for the usual period, and at his insistent desire make him a novice. He lives quietly and at peace at last. But his uncle, realizing that his power is lost unless the young duke returns, tries to discredit him with the monks by having him forcibly abducted and detained in a cave on the seashore by a couple of bravados, who are his trusty henchmen. Ferdinand, by sawing loose his hands upon the sharp rocks of his cave prison, escapes, however, and returns, exhausted, to the monastery after a three-day's absence. Angelico, the Father Superior, finds his story hard to believe, and puts him again upon strict probation and retreat, having him carefully watched. The uncle, finding his first attempt baffled, seeks help from a woman, who is to discredit him at any risk. This she tries to do by pretending illness as Ferdinand, watched by an old monk, walks in the moon-lit garden beneath the walls. The young novice tries to help her, but she throws her arms around his neck, and upon the appearance of the shocked and horrified monk, swears that he has wronged her and demands to be taken before the Father Superior, who hears her story. He asks Ferdinand if it be true. The boy is so dazed that he can hardly answer, but there is the ring of truth in his denial, and the father makes her swear upon the shrine in his cell. This she tries to do, but the old monk sees her falter, and forces a confession from her, whereat he takes the boy in his arms, and she lies broken and weeping at the foot of the cross.

The Still Alarm

John Bird and Franklyn Fordham were business partners in …
John Bird and Franklyn Fordham were business partners in years gone by. The firm being on the verge of bankruptcy, sought in every way to retrieve its lost prestige. Fordham, a man of honor in all his dealings, and afterward a fond and devoted father, is made the innocent offender and accused of a crime through the unscrupulous plotting of Bird. The result was the great Johnston Mystery that had baffled the police for years. Bird leaves the city after securing the valuables left deposited in the firm's safe before Johnson's death. While Fordham became prosperous, his former partner became a renegade and fell lower and lower as the years rolled on. Elinor, the cherished daughter of Fordham, was blooming into womanhood and had found her love reciprocated when Jock Manley, the blacksmith's son, came into her life. He was made a trusted employee of her father's and became a favorite for his honor and integrity. Then dark days came upon them. Bird returned and threatened his former partner, and asked as a price for his silence the hand of Elinor. To shield the family name and save them from disgrace he is forced to discharge Jock from his employ and renounce him as his future son-in-law. After a few months of disappointment and search for work, Jock is again back with his old fire department associates. In order that he may accomplish his ends, Bird, through the pretense of being a newspaper man (under the assumed name of Gorman), gains admittance to engine house and cuts the wires. At the same time a mysterious fire breaks out in the Fordham mansion, but kind providence sends a messenger, telling Jock the threatened danger. Paled with emotion and with a determination as rigid as stone, turns in the 4/11/44 and rushes madly to the rescue, for there was a higher love than even his love for duty that spurred him into the burning home in time to save Elinor and her father. Thus again Bird's scheme had failed. The day has arrived when his marriage is to be performed. As a last hope, Jock, through a ruse of illness, induces Elinor to visit him, knowing Bird would follow and thus give him a chance to meet face to face with the man that had ruined his future. This proves the undoing of the treacherous Bird and landed him into the hands of the officers and results in the reuniting of the devoted lovers.
