Plot

As described in a film magazine, college graduate Jimmy Knight (MacLean) returns to the small town of his birth where he takes over his deceased father's drug store and combats a trust's drug store that has eclipsed the older institution in the public's favor. He falls in love with Miriam (De Beck), daughter of Silas P. Rogers (Robson), the magnate controlling the trust, and fights against elimination to win her plaudits. As a desperate means of fighting the competition he places on sale a harmless concoction he calls "Knight's 99", representing it as his father's secret formula that cures all disease. Townspeople try the ointment and it cures every ailment. Jimmy becomes rich overnight and wins the girl's hand when her father cannot buy the formula. At the end it is disclosed that the fifth ingredient of the Knight's 99 responsible for the curative powers, which Rogers could not discover, is faith.
