At a gathering at the residence of Lady Pamela Hardwick (Dame Whitty), Septimus Todgers (Mitchell), a fortune-teller, excite interest with astonishing revelation and predictions concerning prominent people present. Events immediately confirm his divinations, Tyler, newly engaced to Kowena Mns Le), pooh-poohfl Podcers' powers, but belies this attitude with importunity that the fortuneteller reveal to him what he sees in his hand. Aside, the latter tells Tyler his reading shows that the lawyer will commit a murder. Tyler reacts, on the surface, with haw-haw sarcasm and unbelief. Pecretly well, in time he commits two murders. He does not master his fate. The scene are vividly acted. Mitchell aid Kobinson iitnnd out. the former being unusually effective. The third episode presents Boyer as a circus performer, the king of all aerialiats, who doee a death-defying act. Between shows one day he has a vivid dream in which he sees and hears a strange and beautiful young women among the spectator watching his performance with keen sympathy and ehrie'kinc with horror when he falls.

How they are drawn together despite her efforts to avoid him, and how love restores his faith in himself and triumph over all, even when police take her Into custody after the boat docks, make the rest of the story.
