Storyline

A poverty stricken author tries to sell his manuscripts. He is in despair after a long period of hard luck, but accidentally meets a man whose niece has been a great admirer of his stories. After treating him to a meal they enter into a compact whereby the author is to receive a sum of money if he will consent to marry the niece. This would seem an agreeable task but the young lady's face is something to appall the bravest. Added to this she is a victim of St. Vitus' dance. Nevertheless the wedding takes place and the couple depart meeting with a series of distressing incidents. She makes such violent love to the unwilling groom that he finally decides to vanish with the money and presses some telegraph linemen into his service, who render him the necessary aid.
