THE FLYING ACE, SENSATION OF THE YEAR
Captain Wm. Stokes, World War Hero and Flying Ace, is called upon to solve the most affling mystery of his career. As head of the Intelligence Department of oneof the big American Railroads he is called upon to clear up the disappearance of Paymaster Kimball with the $25,000 payroll of the Eastern Division. As in a puff of smoke, the paymaster has disappeared and left no trace. All clues point to the guilt of Thomas Sawtelle, the aged Station Master of the little station at Mayport. Ruth, the Station Master's daughter, firmly believes in the innocence of her father and the ability of Captain Stokes to clear him. Finley Tucker, an aviator who is in love with Ruth, tries to cast suspicion upon himself to save Ruth's father, by telling Captain Stokes to go to the Dismal Swamp, and there he will see buzzards circling above it, and find the body of Paymaster Kimball. Captain Stokes goes to the swamp and finds buzzards circling over it and also finds there the key to the mystery.
A tiny sisp of excelsior, a small vial, white stains on a man's hands, the smell of fresh paper money on another's hands, aid Captain Stokes to save an innocent man from prison.
BIG FIGHTS ON LAND AND IN AIR
See Tucker's plane loop three times in the air when he is struggling with Ruth, burst into flames, Tucker's flaming leap in a parachute and Ruth's daredevil climb up a slender rope ladder to safety in Captain Stokes' plane.
