Effie and Jeanie are the two …
Effie and Jeanie are the two daughters of a humble Highlander, Crofton Deans. Jeanie is engaged to a young minister, but Effie is secretly married to a notorious outlaw, her sister alone being aware of this. Effie obtains work in an Edinburgh harness maker's shop. A letter from the outlaw tells her that he has succeeded in finding a home for her with Old Margery, who lives in the woods with her half-crazy daughter, Madge Wildfire. Here a child is born to Effie and the outlaw begs her to keep silent, assuring her that both their lives depend upon it, for in those days if a woman concealed the birth of her child and any mishap overtook it, she was held to be guilty of murder. Madge, who has been driven mad by the loss of her own baby under somewhat identical circumstances, steals the baby and hides it. In her despair, Effie wanders away in search of the little one and eventually arrives at her father's home, distraught and in a sad plight. The outlaw, in the meantime, hears of Effie's misfortune, and abuses Old Margery for her carelessness. Thereupon, in order to be avenged on the outlaw, Old Margery informs the authorities and Effie is consequently dragged from her father's home and arrested on a charge of murdering her baby. Meanwhile, Crazy Madge, leads the soldiers to the outlaw's hiding place but he eludes them. Effie's trial comes in, and everything hangs upon whether Jeanie will admit that she knew of her sister's condition. Although loving her sister devotedly, Jeanie cannot tell the lie that would save Effie and the sentence of death is pronounced. Jeanie then shows the depth of her affection by going on foot to London, to get a pardon from the king through the influence of John, Duke of Argyle, but Crazy Madge and Old Margery plan to kidnap the girl lest their scheme of vengeance should miscarry. They are successful but at the last moment the discursive mood of Crazy Madge changes and she assists Jeanie to escape. She at last arrives in London and, by the aid of John, she secures an audience with Queen Caroline and Lady Suffolk and although at first start the case seems hopeless a pardon is promised to her. A few days later the pardon arrives, and Jeanie sets out for Edinburgh. She arrives on the outskirts of the town on the morning of the execution and is again waylaid by Madge and Old Margery. Old Margery attempts to shoot her but once again the unstable mind of the mad girl veers round and, stepping in front of Jeanie, she receives the bullet and is mortally wounded. Jeanie hastens on and arrives at the place of execution. The outlaw, in the meantime, finds the baby in Madge's keeping and arrives upon the scene. Thus the complete innocence of Effie is proved. The final tableau shows the Outlaw, his wife and child happily reunited.

The Cloister and the Hearth

Gerard, the eldest son of a …
Gerard, the eldest son of a wealthy family, is destined by his father for the church, although his own inclinations lie elsewhere. The young fellow is a born artist. His first success comes when he reads of the announcement of a public competition in which a big prize is to be paid for the best picture. It is at this period that he meets Margaret and her aged father. He falls in love with Margaret, and their fast-growing affection is viewed with great concern by the burgomaster of Rotterdam who is keeping in his possession some valuable parchments which relate to Margaret's fortune. Gerard's affection is discovered by his father, who sternly reprimands him, bidding him to think of the vocation in life that he has to fill. Gerard defies his father and family, and goes to his patroness, who, on hearing his story, tells him to put aside all ideas of priesthood for the present, and that she will pay for him to go to Rome and study art. Gerard gratefully accepts the offer, but at the same time he determines that before he leaves, he will wed Margaret secretly. In the meantime his father has been to the burgomaster, attempting to put the law in force against his disobedient son. The burgomaster, fearing for himself if the union between Gerard and Margaret should come to pass, promises his aid. Accordingly Gerard is torn from the arms of his newly-made bride at the very foot of the altar. He is imprisoned in the burgomaster's house. But thanks to the efforts of Margaret and his sister and crippled brother, he makes his escape. While escaping he accidentally discloses a trapdoor which conceals the secret hiding-place of the burgomaster's papers, and thinking that some of them will be useful to him in his work as an artist, he fills his pockets full. He finds on examination that one of them is the actual document relating to Margaret's fortune, and he keeps this, giving the others to Margaret to bury in the garden. He then sets out for Rome and on his way falls in with Denys of Burgundy, a Burgundian soldier of fortune. A friendship springs up between the gentle artist and the rough soldier. Then follows the attempted murder of the two men in the inn by the rascally landlord and his two accomplices, from which Gerard and his companion emerge victorious. Gerard arrives at Rome, and continues his studies. In the meantime his brothers, who have always been jealous of him, discover his whereabouts, and with the connivance of the burgomaster, send a letter to him to the effect that Margaret is dead. This information drives Gerard to such a state of despair that when his life is attempted by an assassin who is bribed to kill him by Princess Cloelia, whose overtures he has rejected. He offers no resistance, but the assassin overcome with remorse drops his dagger and flees from the scene. A year elapses, and Gerard, now a priest, returns to his own country. He is summoned to the death-bed of an old hermit and when he dies. Gerard takes up his life in the old man's cave. His wife comes to the spot to pray, and recognizes Gerard by a birthmark on his hand. The unfortunate man then learns for the first time that he has been deceived, that his wife is alive and that he has a son five years old. When he realizes the extent of the treacherous trick that has been played upon him, he bursts in upon his family and denounces his brothers. The rage of his father knows no bounds, and he is with difficulty restrained from slaying the son who has wrecked his elder brother's life. He next visits the burgomaster, and by the aid of the incriminating parchment, which he has kept all these years, forces him to restore Margaret's fortune. This, however, is the most he can do, and, after taking an agonizing farewell of his wife and child, he is forced to go out in the world alone, for there is no power that can absolve him from the duties of his holy calling, nor is it possible for a man to mix again with the world over whose head the sacred words have been spoken, "Thou art a priest forever, after the order of Melchisedech."
