Storyline

A wealthy widower, whose life had been placid and uneventful, suddenly found himself involved in a sea of trouble. While walking along a lonely street one day, a stranger bumped into him, then abused and struck him. The widower struck back, and was horrified when his assailant fell to the ground, apparently lifeless. A doctor who came running up, pronounced the man dead and the unfortunate slayer fled in terror. For several days he remained trembling in his home, fearing that the police were on his track, but seemingly he was not suspected. Then one day the blow fell. A letter was handed to him signed by "the Princess Ozeb," a spiritualistic medium, who occupied a house not far from his. In this missive he was told that "a terrifying message concerning you comes from the spirit land." The medium wound up by commanding his presence at her circle and in fear and trembling he obeyed. While there the spirit of his victim appeared and accused him of his crime. When he returned to his home ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Will be a good eye-opener
31 October 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A good exposure of a spiritualistic confidence game, which holds the interest well and will be a good eye-opener to people who are sometimes misled by such things. The Thanhouser Kid unravels the medium's trick and saves the father from being duped out of $10,000 by the fake Princess Ozeb and her friends. An interesting reel. - The Moving Picture World, August 30, 1913
