Storyline

It is dull days in Hades. The only enjoyment of an imaginative imp is to interview the newest arrivals from the earth. Finally, one poor soul who arrives to taste of damnation, brings with him a newspaper from the earth. The imp reads the latest earth news, of wars, scandals, divorce and white slave traffic. The imp longs to visit the planet where something is always doing. The imp upon earth comes in contact with a ne'er-do-well barber, who is impersonating a Bourbon count in order to win the hand of an heiress. The imp takes an informal interest in the business. The heiress and her parents are vain and care only for a title. After the barber-count has been accepted by the heiress, the imp introduces himself as a real duke of the realm, with unlimited estates and vassals.

The settings are interesting

This story has the unique distinction of beginning in the nether regions. From this place the devil's son pays the earth a visit and after getting a girl who is anxious for a title, and a barber, who palms himself off as a count into all kinds of trouble, he returns to his proper abiding place. The settings are interesting. - The Moving Picture World, January 17, 1914
