Storyline

The poor widow reads to her little son the passage from the Bible, "Cast thy bread upon the waters," and impresses upon the boy the lesson of charity which brings its reward. Several days later the boy discovers that there is a single loaf of bread for the daily meal and his young mind gives a literal interpretation to his mother's teachings, He therefore steals from the house and coming to the seashore he throws the loaf into the surf, believing that it will be returned to him with manifold blessings. A fisherman who lives with his little daughter has advertised for a housekeeper and as he strolls along the beach he discovers the boy and hears his story. Impressed with the little fellow's earnestness he accompanies him to the widow's home, where he finds to his joy that the good mother is his long lost sister.
