Storyline

John Strong, chief clerk of a great mercantile house, weds Helen Foster. Her sudden rise from poverty to affluence quite turns her head. Meanwhile, John has given employment to Helen's never-do-well brother, Tom, whose gambling passion has been his ruin, and who repays this kindness by a theft from the firm which circumstances enable him to fasten upon John. To protect his wife's brother, John makes good the amount. Unable to obtain employment on account of the stigma on his name after his discharge, John gradually sinks into abject poverty. Tom becomes a homeless wanderer. John's strength fails him under the heavy load and he determines to end his life when a street accident brings the brothers-in-law together. The strong will of John asserts itself at Tom's belated confession which lifts the burden from John's life, and the weak wife is made to realize her husband's devotion.
