Storyline

Joe Slocum, a young country boy, becomes tired of the humdrum farm life and longs to make his way in the city. Old Slocum finally consents to Joe's going and the young fellow leaves. Meanwhile, Beth Winters, a country girl with ambitions to become a great sculptress, pleads with her mother to allow her to go to the city and educate herself in her chosen art. The Widow Winters finally yields and Beth leaves. The young people meet accidentally in the city and, by chance secure rooms in the same boarding house. Joe now falls into bad company and loses what little money he has. He cannot pay his room rent and the landlady summons the janitor to eject him. Joe becomes frightened and seeks safety in flight up the fire escape and, quite by accident, bolts into Beth's room. They recognize each other from the first meeting and Beth learns his trouble. Out of sympathy she gives him money for his rent. Joe pays the landlady, then determines to make himself worthy of Beth. Back in the country old... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
