- Summaries (2)
Bill hits a rich gold strike and sends for his wife, Edith, to join him. While traveling on the stage, Edith meets and flirts with Jack, an old friend of Bill's. Once they arrive at the mining camp, Edith and Jack continue meeting secretly, and plan to run off together. Bill confides in Jack, wondering why Edith has become cold to him. Jack realizes that Bill's love for Edith is more worthy than his, and he leaves the camp.
During that exciting period men were wont to rush from place to place in their mad lust for gold, and Bill Weston was one of these, who, after locating with his wife in one settlement, goes off to another, where the chances seem better, intending to send for her if he strikes luck. He hits it fairly well and so sends a letter telling his wife to take the first coach out, which she does. On the way she meets handsome Jack, the gambler, who, riding on the same coach, deeply impresses her with is attentions. When she meets her husband, who is but a plain, honest fellow, she compares the two, and Jack finds it easy to induce her tom meet him later and go away. Bill feels his wife's coolness toward him and is grief stricken, telling the boys of the camp that his wife does not love him. Jack sees his plight and realizes what a great wrong he is working, so he goes away, leaving a note advising the wife, "Don't be a fool. Appreciate a good man's love while you have it. Go back to your husband, who loves you with a better love." The wife at this is also awakened.
