Episode 1: Hugo Loubeque and Sumpter Love are cadets at West Point. Both love the same woman. Loubeque is expelled from the institution for theft from his fellow cadets. The principal witness against him is Cadet Love, who, as a result of Loubeque's downfall, wins the woman for the hand of whom both were rivals. Loubeque sets apart his life to avenge himself upon Love. He carefully educates himself to the end of making his revenge more certain and dire. Knowing that Love will someday become an officer in the army, he lays his plans in that direction. He becomes an international spy, a broker in national secrets. He works upon the plan that no country is greater than its smallest secret. After a lapse of many years Love is a general in the U.S. Army, stationed in Manila. He has an only daughter, Lucille, who is engaged to marry Lieutenant Gibson. The butler in the Love household is a cracksman in the employ of Loubeque.

This two-reel number is the beginning of a series of fifteen stories, written by "The Master Pen." The style is one of ultra-mystery and deals with the villainous Hugo's attempts to revenge himself upon General Love, his hated rival of former days. Grace Cunard and Francis Ford play the leads and Ernest Shields handles the part of the minor villain creditably. This is frankly melodramatic in treatment, but abounds in action and adventure. A hydro-aeroplane appears in this first number. The production is loosely constructed at times, but in the main the interest is well sustained. It promises to be an entertaining series chiefly because it attempts so much. - The Moving Picture World, April 18, 1914
