Douglas Winter's newspaper, The Courier, has fallen into financial trouble. A Mr. Smith appears, and after talking with Douglas, decides to help pay off the debts, and run the linotype machine. This Mr. Smith just happens to be The Devil, and offers Winter's a contract that would guarantee a successful newspaper in exchange for his soul. Afraid of losing Mr. Smith's services, he reluctantly agrees. Mr. Smith then starts printing up news and then makes the story come true. He creates all sorts of disasters, and Douglas asks him to stop. Mr. Smith makes him a new offer, he will stop as long as Winters kills himself. He agrees, but then gets a brilliant idea. He sets the type to print out a story stating the devils contract is voided, and that Mr. Smith has been banished from the Earth. He decides to run a legitimate newspaper, and then destroys the linotype machine.
