Storyline

Lois Tanner is brought up among crooks and quite naturally joins in their criminal exploits. The gang plans to rob the house of Robert Spurier, editor of a newspaper, but Lois is caught in the act by Spurier, who is so impressed with her beauty that he gives her a chance to live honestly. She becomes a member of his newspaper's staff and incidentally falls in love with Spurier. One day she sees Spurier come out of a church with his bride. Lois decided to end her life, but is prevented by a former crook admirer. She returns to the old life, and once more Spurier's house is picked for a robbery. Lois again is discovered by Spurier, but she is shot as a burglar, dying in Spurier's arms as he kisses her, to his bride's dismay. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
