Synopsis
A secret formula gives a man the ability to project himself into the future. He finds that a farm is going to be discovered with oil on it, so his friends want to buy the property. He has misgivings about swindling the farmers out of the money that would have been theirs, so he tries to back out of the scheme, but his partners in duplicity tie him to a chair so he can't warn the farmers. He gets loose and drinks the rest of the formula so he can get there ahead of the swindlers and warns them against selling their land.
