Storyline

Jack and Peter are both employed at the farm of a widow, whose daughter Nellie, is in love with Jack, and has obtained the consent of her mother to their marriage. Peter becomes jealous when he learns of the betrothal, and wounds his rival. Nellie becomes prostrate with grief. Time passes and Peter thinks he may now risk asking for the hand of Nellie. But she has not forgotten, and he meets a blunt and angry refusal! This proves too much to bear, and he resolves to leave the place. It chances that the widow and her daughter see Peter on the spot of the tragedy, and are horrified at his ghastly face and mad demeanor. Upon seeing them, he falls on his knees, confessing and imploring forgiveness; they bid him flee if he would have freedom. He turns toward the lake and in another moment he is in his watery grave.
