A story of life in the turpentine forests of the South today, and as the story progresses you will have a very good idea of the turpentine industry from the collection of the gum to the distillation of the "turps." Our theme deals with a beautiful young octoroon and her lover, who is the foreman of the turpentine still. The owner of the still, a man of Spanish descent, is a cruel, vindictive brute of little principle, and he, too, would be glad to win the favor of the girl. But she repulses him and in anger he attempts to wreak vengeance on her lover. But the hands at the turpentine still resolve to put an end to the cruelty of the overseer and draw lots to see who shall teach him a lesson. The lot falls to the young foreman, and he determines to settle the matter in a very unusual way.
