A brutal husband leaves his wife and causes a letter to be sent reporting his death at sea. The wife, fainting at the news, overturns the lamp and sets fire to the house. Saved by an old sweetheart, she marries him later. The call of the North brings this good husband to the gold fields; he prospers and is joined by his bride. At a merry making in honor of her arrival the brutal husband appears and by threats of exposure is about to take her away, when a friend, for there are such hearts of cold in that frozen North, interferes for the happiness of the good and worthy and ends the existence of the brute. And over this tale of our far-flung North. God mantles the earth with his white snow of peace and purity as an emblem of good will to Alaskan hearts.
