A group of peasants comes to see Leo Tolstoy and his wife, the Countess, to request some land. Tolstoy must explain to them that it is his wife who has authority over their land-holdings, and she will not help them. Stung by their negative reaction to him, Tolstoy becomes increasingly preoccupied with the problems of the poor. This leads to a number of conflicts with his wife, and then to a deep despondency, as the noted writer continues vainly to search for answers to the sufferings he sees around him.

The Eternal Question

Ralph Courtland and Pierre Felix are sitting in their Fifth Avenue Club discussing the eternal question, woman. Ralph contends that it is birth and breeding that make the gentlewoman, but Felix, who is a designer of fashionable apparel, claims in three months he can make a lady of any one he may happen to pick up on the street, simply by dressing her properly. An old organ-grinder and a young woman, leading a monkey by a string, stop in front of the club to gather some pennies, and Ralph and Felix decide to make her the subject of the test. The wager is for $25,000 and expenses and stakes are placed with Allen Tait, a young lawyer. Ralph goes to California, where his aeroplane is to be entered in a race, and Pierre, fitting out Bianca with beautiful clothes and installing her in a handsome apartment, begins his experiment. Bianca wears her new garments as if born to the purple, and is soon introduced to society at a charity ball and bazaar given by Ralph's mother, Pierre introducing her as a Russian Countess. Ralph returns in time to meet her, and not knowing her identity, is delighted with her. He pays her so much attention that Pierre's jealousy is aroused. Pierre, maddened by her exotic beauty attempts to embrace her, when he escorts her to her new apartments after the ball. She is so infuriated that she returns at once to the old organ-grinder. Pierre apologizes profusely, and persuades her to return, so that he may win the wager. Ralph and Bianca spend a great deal of time together. They are out horseback riding when Ralph's horse becomes frightened and he is thrown. Bianca is so overcome with fear that she rushes to him and pours forth her love in a torrent of words. Ralph is not badly hurt, and returning to consciousness, hears her and is overjoyed. He proposes marriage to her, and she accepts at once. Later Pierre reminds Ralph that he has lost the wager, since Bianca has been accepted by society. Ralph's affairs are in a precarious condition, and this threatens to ruin him. Then Bianca tells him her real identity. She is the daughter of the King of Montenaro. Being ordered to marry the Grand Duke Seridan, she has escaped to America, taking Carlo, an old servant, with her. Ralph rushes back to the club and prevents Allen from paying over the money to Pierre, since he is the one who has lost. Pierre, infuriated, vows revenge. He hurries to Bianca and forces her into an automobile. The Grand Duke has come in search of her, and Pierre promises to deliver Bianca to him. He takes her to the Duke's ship, which is in the harbor. Ralph, who has been notified by Bianca's maid that her mistress has been kidnapped, at once follows in his aeroplane, and Allen Tait gets into communication with the government officials to have the ship stopped within the three-mile limit. A cruiser is sent after the boat and stops it, but not before Ralph has dropped to the deck from his airship and fought his way to Bianca. Their immediate marriage puts a stop to further persecution from the Grand Duke.
