That heroù Colonel Fairfax, has been condemned to die by a relative who stands toinherit his fortune. Fairfax wants to marry someone just before his execution, so that his bride will inherit instead. Jack sets Elsie up to marry Fairfax, thinking it will do no harm. However, Fairfax escapes and remains inthearea in disguise. He spots Jack trying to woù Elsie and gives a demonstratioù où the proper way to wooù winning Elsie ' s affections himself. In the end, everyone pairs off except Jack, who loses Elsie to Fairfax and isheartbroken.
