Storyline

The poor mother cannot support her babe, and leaves it on the wayside, where it is found by a young couple, who take it home and nurture it in luxury. Their fondness for the foundling causes jealousy, and two members of the family plan to have the infant kidnapped. Meanwhile the mother has been engaged as nurse to her own child. She is loved by John, who delivers the mail to the house, and he proposes marriage to her, but she declines to wed and once more leaves her child. The jealous members of the family enlist the services of a gypsy, who carries off the child. The mother is distracted. A chase ensues, and the woman's lover tracks down the gypsy, and the child is recovered. The complicity of the other members of the family is discovered, and denouement speedily follows. In the end, the young mother is happily married to John. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
