Coxheim, an inventor of …
Coxheim, an inventor of renown, and master of negative electricity, after many years of hard labor and deep study, succeeds in inventing an electrical device that resists gravitation. His son, Willard, and daughter Laline, both expert aviators, have rendered their father valuable assistance in perfecting his invention, through their knowledge of air currents. Laline suggests to her father that it be called the contragrav, that is, contrary to gravitation. Among the invited guests at the demonstration for government officials is a person named Laloud, who, unknown to the officials and the inventor increases his income by selling government secrets to the highest bidder Laloud visits the agent of a foreign government and, for a consideration, informs him of the existence of the contragrav. Realizing the possibilities and value of such a device, the foreign agent loses no time in laying plans to obtain possession of the contragrav. Conferring with his confederate, it is decided to have Olga Belgram obtain the device. She contrives to get into the inventor's home by sending her machine over an embankment into the water below and by deftly leaping from the machine just as it is about to plunge over the precipice. Fortunately, she lands right at the feet of Laline, who, thinking her seriously injured, takes her into her mother's house. Olga's clever ruse enables her to ascertain the hiding place of the coveted invention more quickly and easily than she had hoped. She assures Laline that she feels no ill effects from her fall, and not long thereafter reaches the foreign agent's office with the desired information. Equipped with this information, the agent's confederates manage to steal the contragrav. With the prized invention in their possession, they hurry to a suburban villa to study its construction and duplicate it if possible. Upon discovering the theft, not wishing to make known to the public the loss of so valuable an invention, Coxheim engages private detectives. Upon questioning the inventor and his household, the detectives learn of Olga's visit. Laline, feeling that she is partly responsible for the disappearance of the invention, determines to do all she can to restore it to her father. By adroit maneuvering, she learns of Olga's visit to the suburban villa, and with her brother makes a flight in their aeroplane. They land almost at the door of the villa, offering as an excuse that they have run out of gas. A servant admits them to the house, where they meet. Olga, believing Olga and the servant are alone in the house, Laline straightway accuses her of the theft of the contragrav and demands to know its whereabouts. Olga presses a button, which summons the aid of the servant and a confederate. A light ensues in which Willard and his sister overpower Olga and her confederates, secure the contragrav and succeeds in reaching their aeroplane. Just as they begin to make their flight. Olga's confederate, also an aviator, hastens to his machine, places some bombs in it and starts after Willard and Laline. A lively chase through the air ensues. Realizing that he is being overtaken, Willard advises his sister to buckle on the contragrav and jump from the aeroplane, which she does and by manipulating the different currents of negative electricity, she floats through the air, landing safely on a hilltop. The foreigner pursues Willard, and just as he sails immediately over him, he drops a bomb which explodes near Willard's machine, completely destroying it, and killing Willard. Laline succeeds in reaching her home with the contragrav, and hurriedly explains her experiences to the detectives, who return with him to the villa. The villa is almost completely destroyed before Olga and her confederate are overpowered and made to suffer for their crime.

Forgetting for the moment his desire for revenge, Dirk hurries home with the baby. Jones blunders into a lioness and her cubs and is torn to pieces by the infuriated beast. Dirk, having placed the baby in his wife's arms, takes up the search for Bill Jones, only to come upon the latter's corpse in the den of the lioness.

On the day that the leaders of Wade's party notify him that he has received the nomination for governor, the directors of the mills are called into executive session. At this meeting Wade casts the vote which closes the mills and throws hundreds of factory workers out of employment. A month passes. The mill hands, now in desperate want, choose a committee, consisting of Grace Parker, Jim Savage and another man, to visit Wade and beg him to re-open his mills. Wade receives them, but makes it plain that he is not in sympathy with their purposes. That night, Jim Savage, half drunk, plays upon the feelings of his followers, and they creep into the mill intent upon setting it on fire. On the way they meet Grace and Mary. Jim acts too familiar with Grace, who slaps his face. Enraged, Jim intimates that they are about to square accounts with Wade. Whereupon Grace hurries Mary off to notify Wade, while she herself follows Jim Savage and his men. The three men break into the mills, make their way to a passageway and saturate rubbish with kerosene. Mary steals after them. As Jim is about to apply a match to the rubbish, Grace threatens him with arrest. He and the three men grab Grace and bind her. As Jim is about to make his second attempt to fire the rubbish one of the men shows the "white feather." A fight ensues, during which the other two slink off. Jim gets the better of his opponent, fires the rubbish and rushes out, leaving Grace and his helper to their fate. Mary meanwhile hails a passing auto. The chauffeur rushes her to the Wade residence, where she exposes the plot to Wade, who with his butler, enters the auto and is driven to the mills. They arrive just in time to discover Jim Savage leaving. Meeks closes with the half-drunken Jim, while Wade and the butler enter the building. Wade rescues Grace, and the butler succeeds in putting out the fire. Grace is unhurt, and Wade insists that the girls permit Meeks to drive them to their homes. A week later Wade is billed to make a political speech. Grace has obtained employment in a bakery. Jim Savage and his crowd start to mob the speaker. Wade makes his escape, and dashes down the street, the infuriated mob in close pursuit. Grace at work in the bakery, hears the noise, rushes outside, halts the fleeing Wade, and sends him through the bakery to a rear exit.

In the course of her work she frequently meets young Meeks, who is Wade's favorite nephew. Mary has informed Grace that she (Mary) has secured a position in a nearby town.

In it Mary chides Meeks for abandoning her. Meeks misses the letter, returns for it and endeavors to force Grace to give it up. She refuses, and Meeks attempts to take it by force. In the midst of the struggle Wade enters. He demands to know the meaning of the scene. Grace is loath to tell, but Wade takes the letter from her, reads it, then orders Meeks to bring Mary to him. Later. Grace, encouraged by Wade, advises him to win his election by re-opening the mills, thus winning the labor vote and inspiring the confidence of those opposed to him. By adopting her platform Wade is elected by an overwhelming majority. Grace then resigns her position, but Wade has learned to love the clever girl, proposes marriage and is accepted.

Both love the same girl, Marie Wilson, daughter of their colonel. The three young people lived in the same town and grew up together, The two men agreed long before, that neither should make love to the girl. Bainbridge suggests a plan that each shall take her flowers and the one whose bouquet she first accepts shall have the right to woo her. Marie takes Clifford's flowers first, and later accepts his overtures of love. The seed of jealousy and hate is thus sown in Bainbridge's heart, later to grow into a deadly parasite. Later, the two officers are delegated to carry a confidential letter to Colonel Brown at the Presidio, San Francisco. Marie and her mother decide to avail themselves of the officers' escort to visit friends in the states.

The next day a rough sea washes Bainbridge back from the bow, injuring his knee. Santos rescues him and the resultant gratitude opens up the way for the spy to meet the party. Santos recognizes the inherent weakness of Bainbridge and plies him with liquor. The officer soon tells of his love for Marie, and of the mission that carries him and Clifford to California. Santos plays on the drunken man's mind and agrees to get rid of Clifford. The spy intends at the same time to secure the papers. Santos attacks Clifford, and, with Bainbridge's reluctant help, throws the officer overboard. While Santos is searching the stateroom, a trick of fate makes the steamer strike a derelict. Several passengers, panic-stricken, jump overboard. Life buoys are thrown to them and a boat is lowered. One of the buoys drifts near the weakening Clifford. He puts it on and drifts for another day.

As the stranger's stay continues, the blind, overwhelming rage of jealousy takes possession of the rancher. He brutally forces his wife's friend to leave the ranch.

He ropes her, drags her to a corral, where cattle are being branded. Upon her breast he places the hot brand and when the iron is removed a large S is burned into the white skin. In five months a baby boy is born to her. The rancher finds, after all, that he has some humanity in his character. He idolizes his child. It grows to be fifteen years old.

He instructs the ranch hands to cure the boy of his cowardice at any cost Again the time for branding has come. The ranch hands drag the boy to the branding corral. Into his hands they force a brand and are about to compel him to brand an animal, when, wild with fear, he swings the hot iron around his head, flaying his tormentors. The rancher then takes his son in hand and is about to see that his instructions are carried out, when the mother comes in answer to her child's cries. With one glance of that intense power which is only given to the frantic mother, the ranch hands forbear. Slowly she bares her bosom and shows them the scar left by the brand, then she bares the child's bosom. Upon it is written the father's crime. There is a pre-natal mark of the brand on the child's bosom. The brute in the rancher is forever broken.
