Storyline

Mrs. Johnson, a widow, and Mr. Brown, widower, childless and alone, are very unhappy and long for the companionship of home and family. By a strange coincidence, both hit upon the same idea, of adopting an orphan and bringing it up as their own. Mrs. Johnson visits the Hilldale Orphan Asylum, and after inspecting the many little inmates, selects as her choice, Helen, a pretty little miss about ten years of age. Mr. Brown, shortly after Mrs. Johnson has left, comes to the asylum and makes the same choice. They both ask the other to withdraw in favor of the other. The head nurse suggests that Mrs. Johnson and Mr. Brown marry each other, and then they both can have the child for their own. They therefore repair to a minister, are married, and return to the asylum for Helen, whom they take to their hearts, and smilingly accept each other with that happiness and contentment of mind which makes the two one, and the three a complete and happy family.
