On account of his social standing, Emil swears Stella to secrecy. He presents her with jewels and money and she, in a playful mood, reads his palm. She warns him of a mysterious blonde. He laughs at her superstitions, but that night he meets the blonde. She is a high society gambler, and in his new infatuation he neglects Stella. Gradually he becomes the tool of Madame Z, the mysterious blonde, and after losing all of his money to her, he pawns his wife's jewels. This money he also loses and is now fully in the power of the adventurous blonde. She forces him to steal a valuable diamond necklace and with the proceeds to accompany her to America. Stella later goes to America and becomes a Gypsy fortune teller. She is engaged for a reception at Mrs. Ardmore's. Emil and Madame Z attend the reception for the purpose of stealing and in a very dramatic scene Stella comes face to face with the couple and exposes them to the police.
