The story of an old chemist, who takes his daughter and a devoted band of assistants into the heart of Africa in order that he may pursue his scientific studies unmolested; of how he learns the secret of making diamonds and of a dastardly attempt to rob him of his secret by the head of a big diamond trust is, in itself alone, a thrilling one. But to this is allied an exciting story of a leopard hunt, of the chase and the capture of the beast after it has been badly wounded. Through the careful nursing of the chemist's daughter, the leopard is restored to its former good health, and becomes as docile as a great domestic cat. When the agent of the diamond trust comes to steal the secret, he is confronted by the great leopard, who attacks him, and, after a deadly struggle, the thief and the avenger lie lifeless upon the ground.
