Two thieves fight over a packet of stolen money. One (Herschall Mayall) hides the money near a haunted house before being killed by the other (Robert Walker). The surviving crook goes by the name of Doctor Peak. The dead crook's old mother (Gertrude Claire) knows about the hidden money and goes in search of it, but she's thwarted by Peak at every turn. Meanwhile, the old lady's grandson Jerry (Tom Gallery) shows up in town with a medicine show. Jerry and Peak wind up in a furious battle and discover the cash is in a well. The haunted house catches fire and is destroyed. The money turns out to be counterfeit and the village deaf mute (Victor Potel) turns out to be a member of the secret service in disguise.
