Synopsis
A criminal skips town and sets up a newspaper as a front. When his typesetter changes the headlines from what they should read into what actually happens in the near future, he realizes he's got a goldmine, but the typesetter refuses to tell him how he can accurately predict the future. The criminal threatens to fire and blacklist the typesetter if he doesn't come clean, and the next headline he sets tells of an accident happening to the newspaper owner. Panicked, he turns himself in to the police so that he will be safe in jail, which is what the typesetter wanted all along.
