John Humperdink Stover, otherwise known as "The Varmint," for his pestiferousness, or as "Dink" when in special favor, was expelled from a boarding school and sent to Lawrenceville Academy. On the stage on the way to the school he meets a somewhat silent man whom "Dink" sizes up for a salesman and he proceeds to wax eloquent on the subject of his past career and the reason why he was expelled from his previous school. The "salesman" is no other than the professor of Latin, known to the boys as the "Roman." "Dink" boasts that in a week he will have the boys at the school in his power. A strange uneasiness grips him when he sees that he does not make just the impression he expected. Little by little he succeeds in making himself the most thoroughly disliked and abhorred person on the campus. "Dink" rises a point in his schoolmates' estimation when he discovers on reporting to the Latin class that the instructor is no other than the traveling man of the stage on the day of his arrival, and in order to make good some of the many boasts he made on that day fakes the translation. The Roman, possessed of a good sense of humor, compliments "Dink" on his performance, much to everyone's surprise. The first girl to attract "Dink" Stover is no other than the pretty daughter of the Roman, considerably older than he is. After a short and one-sided flirtation, Miss McCarty becomes engaged to another man and "Dink" is desperate, until some new neckwear comes in at the local haberdasher's and diverts his mind from his agony. As a result of his neglect of study, "Dink" finds himself about to be dropped in school for falling off in his studies. He is to have a private examination at the Roman's house. Stover decides to cheat, and arranges with the Tennessee Shad and MacNooder to overturn a large water cooler outside the Roman's door and other devices to get him out of the way. To his utter dismay, the Roman goes out of the room and stays, thus putting him on his honor. "Dink" signs his name at the head of the blank paper and is dumbfounded when, upon the Roman's return, he seems to scan the blank sheets closely and says : "I think this will about pass you, Stover." The two discover that they had been friends from the first and "Dink" really comes into his own when the Roman explains that as he is now an upper classman, it is up to him to set a good example to the younger boys.

"Pip," an orphan, lives with his sister, whose husband runs a country blacksmith shop. The boy's life is a drab one until, in an effort to escape his sister's wrath, he runs into a graveyard where he is seized by an escaped convict, Provis, who threatens him with instant death if he does not give him food and a file with which to remove the ball and chain from his ankle. Pip does as he is bid, only to have the convict captured and brought to the blacksmith shop, when poor Pip nearly expires for fear he will be apprehended. But the grateful Provis lies to save him. The next step in the history of Pip is the arrival of Mr. Jaggers, a London lawyer, who is so struck by his gentility that he selects him as a companion for Estella, the adopted daughter of his client, Miss Havisham, a most secretive and peculiar woman. The companionship of the two youngsters ripens into love as they grow older, until Pip learns to his dismay that Miss Havisham has deliberately encouraged them with the purpose of breaking his heart. The young lovers are separated and Pip is made the beneficiary of a legacy which enables him to go to London, live as a gentleman and be thoroughly educated. He does not know the source of this income, but believes that Miss Havisham is secretly making amends for her cruelty. He finally discovers the whereabouts of Estella and they plight their troth. That night Pip is dashed to the depths of despair by the arrival of Provis, the convict, who reveals the fact that it is he who has been supplying Pip with money. The poor boy believes that Estella will scorn him when she learns the truth, but he has reckoned without the finer qualities of Estella who comes to his assistance and even helps the convict in his fatal effort to escape the police. Over his dead body there arises the vision of a new romance as the two young lovers pay homage to the better side of this remarkable man's character.

Professor Fain, a wealthy scientist, has a secretary, Richard Dare, who falls in love with Dorothy Blake, the professor's ward. It is the professor's desire, however, that she marry his nephew, Morris Fain. Dorothy is not indifferent to Richard, but cares nothing for Morris. Richard is about to propose when he learns that the professor has planned to make Dorothy and Morris his heirs if they marry. Richard decides that he cannot ask Dorothy to forego the luxury of wealth, and refrains from speaking. Morris, who has been leading a wild life, visits his uncle at night and asks for funds. The amount which he receives is not a drop in the bucket of his debts, and leaving, he stops outside the door. The professor leaves the room, and Morris returns and takes more money. The old man detects him in the act, and in a struggle, the professor is knocked unconscious. Morris flees and conceals himself to avoid Richard, who is coming. Richard enters the study and finds the professor on the floor. Dorothy appears, and finding Richard and the scientist, she screams. Morris rushes in and accuses Richard. The professor recovers but is paralyzed, unable to speak or move. Richard is sentenced to prison, and when Dorothy learns from a paper which Morris finds that it was the desire of her uncle that they marry, she agrees to the marriage with Morris. The doctor finds that the professor has made some improvement, but does not tell Morris for fear of raising false hope of the professor's recovery. He tells Morris, however, that the old man must be kept quiet, and that a shock might kill him. The wedding day approaches, and Morris, believing that the shock of seeing the ceremony might cause the death of his uncle and thus remove all danger of detection, has the old man placed where he can see the wedding. During the ceremony, the old man struggles to regain the power of speech, and succeeds just in time to prevent the completion of the marriage. The professor's denunciation of Morris results in the latter's conviction and Richard's release, and the old scientist bestows his blessing upon his secretary and his ward.

Ferguson, who is mad with a miserly love for gold, has determined that he will not give up the control of the girl's fortune when she reaches her majority, and has forced Meg to become his accomplice. Ferguson's intention being to wreck her mind, counting on the fact that if he succeeds he will be made her permanent guardian. There is in the house a certain door, which has always been kept locked, and which to Dulcene has the fascination and vague horror of the mysterious. At length she finds the door ajar, and ventures fearfully through, to find only an empty room at one end of which hang, closed, heavy black curtains. As she slowly approaches these, Ferguson appears in the room with the warning: "There are some things so fearful that they may not be even named; if you would keep your reason, do not look beyond that veil." Dulcene shrinks away from the curtains, but she cannot put the thought of them from her sleeping or waking, she is haunted by fear of the thing they may conceal. Dulcene chances to meet Fred Raymond, a young engineer, who is at work in the neighborhood, and they find for each other a tender regard. That night Fred sees a vision of the girl, imploring his aid, and on impulse he hurries to the house. Meanwhile, Ferguson has exerted his powers to the end that, rousing from her sleep, Dulcene feels herself irresistibly drawn to the room of the closed curtains. No sooner has she stepped in than the door is locked behind her, and she knows herself a prisoner. Sick with horror, yet unable to resist the terrible fascination, she moves slowly to the curtains, peers between them and, with a shriek, falls senseless upon the floor. Fred, hearing her wild cry, bursts into the house, to be met by Ferguson. A struggle follows, from which Fred emerges, leaving Ferguson unconscious. Fred breaks down the door of the room of mystery and strives to revive Dulcene. At this moment a police officer and a doctor arrive, having been brought by Meg, who in fear has turned informer. Ferguson has revived, and, laughing wildly, explains his plot. The curtains are torn aside, revealing only an empty alcove, the horrors which Dulcene thought she saw were but the suggested fancies of her own mind. It is now discovered that Ferguson himself is totally insane, and he is led away. Dulcene soon recovers from the shock she has experienced, and love promises happiness.

Robert Strong and Edgar Marsh are fellow medical students and friends. They have delved deeply into the occult, and Marsh has developed hypnotic powers to a high degree. The particular object toward which they are working is to determine the exact relation of completely suspended animation to death. Both fall in love with Alice Gray, who in time becomes engaged to Robert. He abandons the researches hitherto carried forward with Marsh. Marsh conceals his hatred for Strong, pretending a warm friendship. Just before the time set for the marriage of Robert to Alice, Marsh arrives at startling conclusions as the result of his researches, and induces Robert to assist in a demonstration. Without informing him of the exact nature of the experiment, Marsh, hypnotizing first Robert and then himself, brings about a total suspension of animation in both bodies, setting free the inner natures or souls. That of Marsh, a hideous thing, quickly enters the body of Robert, but that of Robert, with understanding and vision unclouded by the flesh, will not enter the form of Marsh. Marsh, clothed in Robert's body, proposes to take Robert's place as the lover and future husband of Alice, but the girl's spiritual love cannot be deceived, though her physical senses are, and she breaks her engagement at the last moment, though why she suddenly recoils in horror from her lover she cannot explain even to herself. Defeated, Marsh, in Robert's body, returns to the place where his own body still lies inanimate, and sets himself free from his borrowed case. Robert's soul immediately repossesses itself of his own form and he flees from the accursed place. Marsh's spirit undertakes to re-enter his own body, but cannot do so; the body has remained untenanted by a soul for too long, and has passed from the state of suspended animation to that of true death. The same instinct which warned her against Marsh in the form of her lover tells Alice that all is well when Robert comes to her. and for them there is the promise of a future of happiness.

John Schultz, with his son, …
John Schultz, with his son, Don, are camping in the Kentucky hills when their campfire accidentally ignites an outcropping of coal in the cliff. They put out the fire and plan to get possession of the land before any one else discovers its value. Old Blazer Hoadley, a mountain "cracker," directs them to the owner, young Lafe Herron, who lives on the mountain with his pretty wife, Roxie. But Lafe and Roxie are too happy on the old place to sell and the plotters are baffled. To make matters worse, Old Blazer discovers the secret and they are compelled to bribe and engage him for a guide. Balked in his first attempt, Schultz hatches a devilish plot. He has noticed that Roxie was interested in Don and he proposes for Don to win her away from Lafe, so that Lafe will be willing to sell. Don's attentions excite such jealousy from Lafe that Roxie is angered and they quarrel. Matters get worse with the young couple, but one day Don exposes his purpose by kissing Roxie and she breaks with him. Lafe does not see this, however, and firmly believes that Roxie is drifting away from him. Roxie's brother, Bill, escapes from prison and strikes for the hills. He stumbles upon the Schultz camp, is captured by them and his identity disclosed. Then Schultz hatches another infernal plot. With Blazer's aid, they cleverly manage that Lafe, at a distance, shall see the meeting between Roxie and Bill, who is dressed in Don's clothes. This apparent proof of his wife's unfaithfulness almost drives Lafe insane. He resolves to sell the place and leave the hills. At the Schultz camp he writes a note to Roxie telling her of his discovery and his resolve, and giving the note to Blazer to deliver, he goes with Schultz to a neighbor's, where they get a rig and start for town to fix up the deed. Blazer cannot resist the temptation to read the note, but he delivers it to Roxie. As he is leaving he peeps into the window and sees the grief-stricken wife reel to the bureau and take from a drawer a tiny baby garment and sob over it. Realizing the terrible tragedy he has helped to make, he rushes in and tells Roxie the story. Together they hitch up a horse and drive for town.

The famous Hurf-Tyler feud is ended when the factions sign a peace-pact in the Hurf yard and Bob Tyler slips away to join his sweetheart, Betty Hurf. Old Jim Tyler interrupts the lovers, and Betty attacks him tooth and nail. Bob tries to soothe her but sees that she nurses a grudge. Next day cowardly Bill Hurf returns from the city to which he had fled when the feud began. Betty is again seen at the Tyler still which causes a quarrel between Bob and his father. Bob's brother Ed prevents a fight and Betty leaves threatening the old man. Bill Hurf comes up and old Tyler refuses to shake hands with a coward. Bill seizes a club and the old man, throwing his gun aside, fights with his hands. Bill picks up the gun and shoots the old man. Bob finds his father dead and, thinking that Betty has done the deed, writes a hasty note claiming that she killed his father in a quarrel and pins it to the body but the wind carries it away and Betty finds it. Ed Tyler returns and jumps at the conclusion that the feud is on again; he, however, finds the part of a broken lead pencil, the only clue to the killing, and he flees for aid. Betty tells her father that of course the Hurfs will be blamed. She is examining the revolver when Bill comes in; he shows such horror that Betty accuses him of the crime and he confesses, but binds his sister to swear to keep his secret. Bob is riding away when he hears the Tyler bell ringing an alarm and starts back to investigate. Obedient to mountain law, two small armies assemble, one at the Tyler home and the other at the home of Tom Hurf. The Tylers go to the still to rescue Jim's body. Betty comes hunting for Bob and is roughly treated. The Hurfs are just about to open fire when Dotty shows Bob's note and the fury of the mob is transferred to Bob. The girl knows that if her lover is caught it means death. She mounts a wild colt and joins the chase. When it seems sure that Bob will be caught she leads the pursuers on the wrong track and Bob escapes. A month passes. Bob and Betty long to see each other. One day Bob, walking to work in the city, hears Bill bargaining with the revenue officers to betray the location of the Tyler's still. Mounting his horse he swings back to the mountains to warn his kinsmen. The officers and Bill Hurf take the train for the country seat and there demand the services of Joe Hurf, the sheriff, and he is compelled to take part in the raid. Arriving on the scene, Joe Hurf arrests Bob on the charge of killing his father. At the trial Bill Hurf sits opposite Ed Tyler. Bill is terrified and scribbles a note to Betty to remember her oath. Ed sees the pencil and recognizes it as the half of the one he had found near old Tyler's body, he accuses Bill, who confesses. The two families turn their anger on Bill Hurf and, congratulating Bob and Betty, the feud is ended for good.

Tom Stone, angered at his old father's miserly habits, leaves home in a fit of rage. He does not realize that, despite the old man's crabbed ways, he loves him: nor does he appreciate the fact that he himself is loved by Evelyn Gray. Silas Stone is failing fast, and is tenderly cared for by Evelyn. Upon Tom's departure, Silas makes a will, by which all his property goes to Tom, providing the boy returns repentant before the last leaves fall from a tree close beside the old man's window. The will is sealed, and is to be opened on the last day of the year, or when all the leaves have fallen. In case Tom fails to comply with the condition, Evelyn is to inherit everything. Evelyn is aware of the terms of the will, but no other person. Tom, working in distant harvest fields, feels his heart soften toward his father, and starts home. Meanwhile, Silas has died, and Tom returns to find the old house empty. During the night a great storm arises. Evelyn awakens, and, not knowing of Tom's return, thinks that all chance of his coming into possession of his father's wealth will be gone before dawn. The storm will beat the few remaining leaves from the tree. She steals out into the night, and climbing into the swaying tree, ties a dozen leaves securely to their twigs. Tom, awakened by the storm, sees the girl, buffeted by the wind and drenched by rain, her presence disclosed by vivid lightning flashes, but so strange and improbable is the picture that he sets it all down as a vision of his weary brain. The next day he learns that Evelyn has been stricken with pneumonia, and is puzzled and bewildered. Tom proves a constant friend during Evelyn's illness and convalescence, and love claims him for its own. Comes finally the last day of the year and old Silas' will is read. As soon as Tom hears the strange conditions, he examines the leaves that still cling to the tree beside the old house. He now realizes what he saw was no vision and that it was the exposure to the storm which brought about her so nearly fatal illness. He can only swear in his heart to make himself worthy of this girl's great love by a lifetime of devotion.

Edith and Daisy, two sisters, are in love with Dick, a young chap devoted to automobiling. He prefers Edith, and they become secretly engaged, as the girl does not want to tell her father yet. One morning Dick takes Daisy for a ride. There is an accident and the girl is hurt, but Dick escapes. He carries her home. Her father sees the girl brought in and a servant is sent for the doctor. Dick blames himself, but Edith consoles him. The doctor says the girl can never walk again. The father turns to Dick and denounces him. Dick goes away while Edith consoles her father. Later, while Edith is amusing her lame sister. Daisy confesses her love for Dick. Edith is at first horrified, then she realizes that she and Dick must sacrifice their lives for the girl who loves him, because he was the cause of the accident. She tells Dick this and their happy love affair is turned into a tragedy. The lame girl is wheeled out and Dick asks her to marry him. She consents. When Daisy is once more in her room, Dick sees Edith coming from the house. She had waited to bid him a last good-bye. This time she breaks down. He tells her he loves her. The lame girl upstairs hears them, and she throws down a rose with a note pinned to it telling them that she wants only her sister's happiness. It falls at their feet. They rush in to her, but her mind is made up. They are free to marry. She gets her father to consent to the marriage and to forget all his resentment against Dick. The lovers go out happy, while Daisy breaks down in her father's arms.
