Pe ee ell Jennifer Lee, known to her friends as Lady, was a most unusual young person. She was beautiful, she was good, she was absolutely honest and she combined an uncanny “card sense” with a skill that made her master of any situation that might arise around a gaming table. This skill with cards she: had learned from her father, a straight-shooting gambler who committed suicide as the only way out of trouble with the erooked gambling syndicate. Lady, left penniless, turns to poker for a livelihood, but like her father, refuses to cheat. The gambling house in which she is playing is raided by the police who find one of Lady’s associates with ecards up his sleeves. Lady is not only taken to jail, but is branded as a “cheat” after Charlie Lang, a race horse tout and old friend of her family, obtains her release. Consequently, when she meets Peter Madison, aristocratic friend of her father’s at a gambling table, he is skeptical of her, and when his son Garry falls in love with the girl and wants to marry her, Madison tries to stop the marriage by offering Lady $50,000 to release Garry. Lady, who had refused to consider marriage without Madison’s consent, spurned the money, but offered the young man his freedom. After a talk, Lady and Peter Madison cut cards to see whether or not she should marry Garry.

When they are happily mar ried, Sheila Aiken—an old friend of Garry’s—appears and pretends that she and Garry were once engaged. A strong rivalry develops between the two women. Lady inveigles her into a game of cards and wins all Sheila’s jewelry, which she is forced to pawn. The whole business infuriates Garry and Lady packs to leave but is persuaded to stay by her fatherin-law. Garry goes after Charlie to get the pawn tickets and after Charlie is found dead in an alley, it is learned that the two had a quarrel. As a result, Garry is jailed, refusing steadfastly to account for his whereabouts at the time it is believed Charlie was slain. Lady smells a rat and believes that Garry, as well as she herself, has been tricked by Sheila. When Lady asks Sheila to confess her plot, the latter agrees to give Garry an alibi if Lady will sue for divorcee and give no explanation to anyone. Lady is forced to consent because it is the only way of saving Garry’s life. Snubbed by her father-in-law at a gambling table Lady goes to Sheila and threatens to shoot her if she doesn’t phone him immediately and explain. Sheila, frightened, does as Lady commands, after which Lady leaves for Monte Carlo, hoping to put Garry out of her heart. Garry and Peter hunt for and find her. At first Lady refuses to forgive him but her love is too great and they are re-united, Sted ee ede MAN se Archie Mayo 5 hh a alge hae lta Doris Malloy Ralph Block and Doris Malloy AA Ved hata es George Barnes FI __.........Harold McLernon pe Tae ais MS _._......
