A recently impoverished young girl ( Helen Ware ) obtains employment as
a secretary with an unhappily married artist ( Wilmuth Merkyl ). The
artist soon falls in love with the girl and showers her with attention,
which she reciprocates, believing herself in love as well. When she
meets James ( James Cooley ), however, a successful physician, she
finds genuine romance. Accepting the physician's marriage proposal, the
girl finally rejects the artist, who drops dead when he hears the news.
Knowing of her husband's affair, the artist's widow ( Blanche Douglas
)seeks revenge and procures a job as the physician's housekeeper.
Convincing the girl that her new husband is in love with his pretty
adopted daughter, the widow causes a jealous row between the young
couple. The widow then shows the physician the girl's diary, which
chronicles her relationship with the artist. Destroyed by mistrust and
doubt, the couple separates, and the girl contemplates suicide. Stopped
in time by the inspired entreaties of her maid, the girl decides to
reconcile with her husband and pay the price of her past with courage.
Reels four and five are all that now survive from this early silent drama produced by Equitable Motion Pictures Corporation.
