Subtitled "A Syncopated Fantasia", this rag was published in 1913 by A.F. Marzian. The composer credit is shown as Mark Janza, but we now know this to have been a pseudonym used by Al Marzian himself, so that he didn't look self-serving when publishing his own music.

It's a rather popular rag among ragtime musicians.

Frederick's long two-handed triplet run up the keyboard at the end is a reference to Tom Brier's "Razor Blades", which had been sung about in a humorous parody of "To Dream the Impossible Dream" earlier in this Saturday concert at the 11th annual Sutter Creek Ragtime Festival.
