The Maid's Double (1911)
- Summaries (1)
This story deals with two girls who were exact doubles, the one an unscrupulous maid, and the other, Jane, a young lady of high social standing. The maid takes a valuable necklace from her mistress and leaves for the railroad station. Jane, who has just returned from a long visit abroad, receives a note from her fiancé's mother, inviting her to pay them a visit. She arrives at the station at the same time the maid appears in her flight. The loss of the necklace is discovered and a detective engaged by the owner. In the maid's room he finds clues which establish a suspicion already formed, and he hastens to the station to arrest her. The maid and Jane meet. The former's confederate comes in and informs her of the approaching officer, and she then notices the striking resemblance between herself and Jane. In her haste to seclude herself, she picks up Jane's handbag instead of her own. The detective arrives and arrests the protesting Jane, who does not know what to make of the proceeding, but the officer is doubly sure that he is right when he picks up a hand-bag and discovers the missing jewelry. While Jane is being led off to prison, her sweetheart, Jack, hastens into the station. The maid has just read Jane's note, found in the hand-bag, when Jack rushes in and takes her in his arms, thinking she is Jane. The maid, anxious to lose her identity, keeps up the illusion and accompanies Jack to his home. At police headquarters Jane implores the sergeant to take her to Jack's home for identification. To this the officer finally consents, and a detective is sent with the unfortunate young lady. The maid's treachery is disclosed and she is taken to prison, while Jane receives a belated welcome from Jack and his mother.
