Mlle. Poppea, of the Imperial Ballet, had fascinated all Calcutta. But most conspicuous among her devotees was Captain Drake, of the Royal Singapore Blues. It was not so generally known that Prince Yar Khan, of Her Majesty's Bengalese Dragoons, also was an ardent suitor of this Circe of the West. Drake's and the dancer's infatuation was mutual. One evening, awaiting him Poppea sat before coil upon coil of Indian pearls. "To the fairest of the fair," read the card in the casket, "from her devoted slave, Yar Khan." Captain Drake made his entrance. She was Drake's, she told the Englishman, and his alone. A few weeks later, Poppea held in her hand Yar Khan's letter of proposal. "He is a prince," she whispered to herself. "He is rich. Why not?" Within the hour, Yar Khan rode away from their interview. Poppea and consented to marry him. And simultaneously in the perfumed, dim-curtained chamber of Poppea, Drake was demanding the meaning of the priceless, strange ring on her finger. As he learned the truth he turned away. For a moment she searched him with her great, lustrous eyes. Then, putting her face close to his, she whispered, "Need my marriage make any difference to us?" After the honeymoon. Prince Yar Khan and his bride received their "mutual" friend many times at the palace. Drake came and went with the full confidence of Poppea's husband. Then, unexpectedly, the Prince was ordered south. Yar Khan was chagrined and sorrowful that he must take his bride into the sweltering southland. They had been gone about a month when, one day, Captain Drake was handed a letter. "And I'm sick of it," the letter concluded, "sick of the heat, the greasy natives, and being worshiped by a fool. If you don't come to me I shall go mad. Poppea." The "mutual" friend, absent from the army at Calcutta on a plea of ill health, was made extraordinarily welcome by Prince Yar Khan. Then, one morning, the Prince, entering his wife's room, saw on the candle-stand by her bed a heap of cigar ashes. The awakening was swift and terrible. True to the code of the Orient, he determined to work secretly. That evening he entrapped the lovers together. Placing a guard over them, Yar Khan retired to his study. He poured out two identical glasses of wine. Then, into one of these he dropped a quantity of arsenic. Poppea and Drake were led before him. "One of these is harmless," he addressed the Englishman, "the other fatal. My wife will choose for you." At last she waveringly held out toward Drake one of the glasses. Ceremoniously, the two men drained the fatal toast. The Indian prince still stood, statue-like and smiling, when with a sudden, horrible writhe of his body. Drake fell over on the table, dead.

The choir practices and the quartette, driven to desperation by the frequent false notes played by the near-sighted organist, complain. He leaves in a huff. The minister tells them that his daughter will be on hand next Sunday and will play for them. Mary arrives. She is introduced to the quartette who, during the week days, sow seeds and plow. The minister is writing a sermon when the deacon enters and demands the payment of the mortgage on the church. He is insistent, but promises to wait upon meeting Mary, when his heart melts at the sight of her loveliness. On Sunday the music is faultless. It is the male portion of the quartette now at fault. Forgetfulness is the fault, caused by too close an interest in Mary. At the close of the sermon the minister announces that a basket picnic will be given to raise the mortgage on the church. The day of the picnic arrives and the deacon soon finds that Bob is a strong favorite with Mary. He is very angry. He sees Mary tie a ribbon on her basket so that Bob shall buy it. He determines to frustrate their scheme and tells the minister that he will buy Mary's basket for he knows which one it is. Mandy, an elderly person with her eye on the deacon, changes the ribbon on Mary's basket to her own. The baskets are auctioned and Mandy's basket is put up first. The deacon buys it, much to his disgust and Bob's and Mary's enjoyment. Mary decides that her basket is not safe, so she and Bob borrow it when nobody is looking and depart for a more serene scene. The deacon is not to be denied, and having more money he outbids the boys and buys all the baskets, only to discover that Mary's is not among them. The deacon departs in anger. He seeks out the minister and demands immediate payment of the mortgage. The auctioneer comes up with the necessary amount from the sale of the baskets, all supplied by the deacon himself. The church is free and the only two unhappy members are Mandy and the deacon. The rest rescue the baskets which the deacon has Jeff and have a good time.

Violet De Ray opens up a barber shop at Roaring Gulch. Violet not only does a ripping good business, but she unconsciously has a hand in hurrying along several matrimonial affairs which have hung fire. This is notably the case with Si, who has loved bashfully and at a respectable distance for years. He is lured into Violet's shop, and after his chin whiskers have been clipped he emerges elated; and this coupled with Mandy's desire to protect him from such evil influences, cements a long drawn out romance. Marcia Allen is a flirt. Her pa takes her to the window, so that she may see her Jack being patted and petted, after which Marcia is not so coy. Pa's desire to get into the lady barber's shop never consummates, owing to Ma's vigilance, and when Pa, with malice aforethought, injures his hand so that he cannot shave himself, Ma officiates with disastrous results as far as Pa's beauty and comfort are concerned. The ladies of Roaring Gulch eventually meet and decide to oust this interloper and innovator. They swoop down upon her in a body; they look through the widow and see the minx kissing a gentleman of Italian extraction. They enter and make themselves very unpleasant and discover that the man is Violet's husband. Violet is persuaded to leave and does so in good financial circumstances, and Bill the barber's smile returns and he does his customary business as of yore.

John Hobbs is a candidate for sheriff, so is Sam Barton. John is a favorite in the vicinity, but Barton has the political pull. Things look none too well for John, when Mary Lemon arrives to visit her brother's ranch. Mary is a suffragette. Having come to the country for a rest from men and work, she promptly forms an attachment for John and starts right in to turn a probable defeat into a sure victory. Mary calls a meeting and the boys attend anticipating some amusement. They leave enthusiastic about Clary's charming personality and many of them lukewarm in their adherence to Barton. Mary is not satisfied, election day is at hand and the fight is not won. Mary being a suffragette and a lady, has a large stock of quotations at her command. She remembers one, "The way to a man's heart is through his stomach." Mary buys up all the lemons on the market and prays for high temperature on election day. Her prayer is answered and the day brings forth many violent thirsts and no saloons open. Mary opens a lemonade booth near the polls, free drinks for the adherents of John Hobbs. The temperature and the thirsts rise, men are tempted and fall, they procure free and harmless drinks and a badge bearing the caption: "Vote for John Hobbs." The election is won by lemonade and John is duly grateful, and when the last spectator is gone shows it in the usual manner of a man wanting a girl for life, and things do not look rosy for Mary's future career as an active suffragette.

Mabel Russell, on her return from Europe, is informed by James Leonard, administrator of the Russell Estate, that it was her father's dying wish that she should marry Billy Jones, the son of William Jones, her father's schoolmate and lifelong friend. Mabel, however, has ideas of her own and rather resents being disposed of like a parcel of goods, so when Billy calls upon her, she takes advantage of the fact that he has not seen her since she was a child, and induces her maid (a young woman who has a good figure and passable manners, but is extremely homely), to impersonate her, while she dresses up as the maid. Billy comes ready and willing to fulfill his part of the program, but at first sight of the maid, whom he supposes to be Mabel, he retreats hastily. Some months later, Billy receives word that Mabel will stop at his ranch en route for California, and, remembering the lady with the homely features whom he met when he called, and hoping to head her off, he sends word to his attorney (who is Mabel's legal adviser), that he was married a month before. Mabel is notified and she decided to offer her congratulations in person and see what a real ranch is like at the same time. She notifies Billy, who is panic stricken, for he realizes he will have to find a wife on short notice and there is not a woman within twenty miles of the ranch. The cowboys come to his rescue and Joe is finally selected, much to his disgust, to act the part of the bride. When Mabel arrives with the maid and a chaperone, Billy is made aware of the joke which has been played upon him when he called to see her in New York. He is tempted to explain matters as he finds himself getting really attached to the girl, but he holds off. The cowboys invite everyone for miles round to attend the ball to be given "To meet the new Mrs. Jones." During the hall, Joe, dressed as the wife, gets into an argument with a cowboy owing to the latter having stepped on his train, and acts in a most unladylike manner, knocking his tormentor down. A short fight is stopped by Billy, but Joe has lost his wig as well as his dignity. Explanations follow and Mabel and Billy are ready and willing to carry out the wishes of their parents.
