Storyline

Gordon Rockwell, a physician, and his friend, Kenneth Randall, share bachelor apartments together. They both fall in love with Frances Burnham. She accepts Randall's proposal of marriage. Rockwell holds no grudge against his friend on this account and in all sincerity wishes them happiness. Before marrying, Randall requests Rockwell to give him a physical examination. In the blood test Rockwell's assistant accidentally substitutes infected blood for that of Randall's. In perfect ignorance of the error, Rockwell breaks the news to Randall who immediately leaves the country. Later Rockwell discovers the mistake, but keeps it secret and a year later finds he and Frances Burnham married. As time goes on his conscience gets the better of his and after writing a note to Randall explaining the error, he poisons himself. Randall returns in time to forgive him and is united with the girl he madly loves. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
