Gordon Deveran drifts to Arizona, where he married a young Indian woman. The years rolled by and his elder brother died. Among his papers were found proofs that cleared Gordon's name, and his mother sent a solicitor out to bring him home. At first Gordon refused, but the solicitor, working on the poor Indian woman's better nature, succeeded in prevailing upon her to give him up for his own and the boy's sake. But in agony of love, she fastened one little moccasin of her boy's in his breast and kept the other. Gordon found the other (the one she had fastened in little Jack's shirt) when well on his way, and it made him suspect the truth, but it was too late; the prodigal returned to his mother's arms and forgiveness. Years passed and young Jack was given his twenty-first birthday party.

Poor Jack was stunned... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
