Plot Marcus, Gertrude's grandfather, owns a farm adjoining Jim's and the young people are attracted to each other. This feeling is not shared by their respective hired men, Jake and Dick. Dick clears Jim's field of rocks by the simple process of throwing them over the fence, into Marcus's field. Jake throws them back, and Gertrude and Jim have difficulty in keeping the men from fighting. Dick's final act of reprisal is to unload a wheelbarrow of rocks on Marcus's land during the absence of Jake. Harry, a mining engineer, comes to the country for his vacation, and secures board in Marcus's house. Gertrude is attracted to Harry, and this has a saddening effect on Jim. While strolling through one of Marcus's fields, Harry finds the rocks Dick has brought there in his wheelbarrow. Harry discovers traces of copper in the rocks, and secretly determines to buy the farm. He returns to the house in time to find an old skin-flint of a squire threatening to foreclose a mortgage he holds on Marcus's farm. Harry follows the squire home, and buys the mortgage. He then proposes to Gertrude that she become his housekeeper, and makes violent love to her. She and Marcus leave, indignantly, not waiting to be driven out. Jim arrives at this juncture, and Gertrude has difficulty in keeping him from attacking Harry. Jim takes Gertrude and Marcus to his house. Gertrude is thoroughly disillusioned in regard to Harry. Harry writes to a capitalist, in New York, asking him to come on, investigate the copper property, and advance money to develop it. The capitalist arrives, and Harry takes him to the copper-bearing rocks. Jake, the hired man, arrives. He is very indignant at finding the rocks, and informs the horror-stricken Harry that they belong on Jim's land. The capitalist goes to Jim and offers to develop the copper mining possibilities of his farm. Jim, Gertrude and Marcus are happy, and Harry finds himself with a useless farm on his hands.... search for A Shifting Fortune on IMDb
