Storyline

Aurora Floyd elopes from boarding school with John Conyers, but hardly a week has elapsed before she discovers that she has married a worthless libertine. She appeals to her father for aid and advice and he finally pays Conyers to leave the country for a year, so that she can secure a divorce on the ground of desertion. She returns to her home town, and realizes that her girlhood sweetheart, John Mellish, is the man she really loves. Upon hearing the report of Conyers' death, she promises to become the wife of Mellish. Just as the marriage is about to be consummated, Conyers appears life-size and proceeds to blackmail her, until death relieves the earth of his presence. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
