With him are his nephew, Jack Warrington, and his niece. Margaret Warrington. Arthur is in love with Margaret; she repels his advances, but he persists. Her uncle, however, rather favors the match, as he thinks Baxter is wealthy. Jack Warrington, however, takes a different view of the matter and is badly worsted in a fist fight. He goes out hunting, and when he returns later, he finds Baxter asleep in the library; so he quietly slips in and lays his revolver and cartridge belt on the table. He leaves the room, and some time thereafter a shot is heard; Baxter is found dead in the chair; the police investigate and arrest Jack. Jimmy Norton, a keen police reporter, and friend of Margaret, refuses to believe that Jack is guilty. He discovers by accident, that the sun shining through a glass gold-fish bowl, has focused on a cartridge in the belt that Jack laid upon the table, exploded the shell and caused Baxter's death. The judge, and the jury immediately clear young Warrington, and Norton's interest in her brother's case inspires Margaret to give him the answer he has waited for so patiently and long.
