Wesley Barry plays Brick Hubbard, a printer's devil, or printing apprentice, for a small town newspaper. When he is robbed, Sidney Fletcher (Harry Myers) finds himself down and out in said small town. Brick convinces him to wire home for funds so that he can buy the Gazette from Alec Sperry (Ray Cannon), a swindler who regularly sells the paper to strangers and then buys it back when the victim goes broke. Fletcher has more pluck than most, and he begins to attack the town's powers-that-be. This doesn't sit too well with the local financial bosses, naturally, and when the bank is robbed he is accused of the job. Brick, however, finds the real culprits and Fletcher is cleared.
