Storyline

He loved his invalid wife, but he was just a little impatient at her illness. He took her out west, and life for a while was pleasant and carefree, only a little monotonous. Once he strayed away and met, her. She was a sweet girl, young and pretty and flirtatious. They chatted for a minute, a minute that was as old as the world, and he left her. He went home that night, and even the news that his wife was feeling much better and was even able to walk around didn't till him with a great deal of joy. The other woman was on his mind and in his heart, and a battle raged in both. He saw her again, and the appeal of each to each was strengthened and increased. Then one day his wife saw them together. She loved her husband, loved him! She saw, and understood. She saw, and felt, and knew that she was the obstacle to his happiness. And she loved him too much to desire to continue to be that. So that night, after making her peace with herself and her God, she took the medicine that meant life ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
