In the twilight of his life, John Menton, an old veteran, finds himself alone and destitute. In desperation he turns to the statue of his old commander, General Grant, then to that of President Lincoln, hoping in vain that one or the other might offer an inspiration, hut in both cases the marble statues look upon his misery in mute silence. Disconsolate, he wanders down the avenue in quest of aid. At the Revere mansion he pitifully begs for alms from the wealthy owners, who are about to enter their automobile.

In due course, a locket of the madam is missing and she recalls having placed it on the library table at the time... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
