'The story tells of the love of two brothers for a girl, the younger supplanting his brother in her affections. The younger lad falls in with gamblers, and to recoup himself lends himself to a scheme to nobble his father's race-horse. Later he falls in love with a barmaid, who overhears a plot to rob him. She is caught listening, and held captive, but escapes, and aids the man she loves. In a fight with the robbers, he is wounded, but the care of his barmaid sweetheart restores him. Eventually he marries her, and his brother and former sweetheart are reunited.'
