After Canadian trapper Jules Le Clerq ( William Farnum ) proposes to Adrienne Cabot ( Gladys Brockwell ), she tells him that some time ago her uncle sold her to the outlaw Pierre 'Devil' Cabot ( Willard Louis ), to whom she was married but who died soon thereafter. Unconcerned about her past, Jules marries Adrienne, but then Cabot, who actually had not died, appears, overcomes Jules and carries off Adrienne. While a captive of Cabot's, Adrienne gives birth, and Cabot, enraged at having to care for Jules's new daughter, tries to kill the child. Adrienne attacks Cabot and, after apparently killing him with a poker, takes her baby and returns to Jules. Overcome by the trauma, however, Adrienne soon dies. Then, years later, Cabot appears again. He assaults the daughter, but Jules, this time leaving no doubt, finally kills him.
This 1916 silent drama was produced by the Fox Film Corporation, starring Gladys Brockwell. Sadly it may now be a lost silent film.
