District Attorney Daniel O'Bannon visits Lydia to make her see the error of her own ways, but instead views a scene of Lydia and her friends that reminds him of a Roman orgy. O'Bannon feels it is his duty, therefore, to send Lydia to jail for her own good when her automobile driving causes the death of a motorcycle policeman. Lydia is resentful, and her rebuff of O'Bannon, who has come to love her, causes him such remorse that he turns to drink and dissipation. Meanwhile, Lydia reforms, realizes she loves O'Bannon, and resolves to do charitable work. She and Evans open a soup kitchen after their release, and a chance meeting with O'Bannon starts him on the road to recovery. With Lydia's encouragement he becomes himself again, runs for governor, but withdraws his candidacy to marry Lydia when he sees that her record would be a liability to him in politics.

Henry de Spain, a young …
Henry de Spain, a young mountaineer of about twenty-eight, is made general manager of the Thief River Stage Line because he has nerve and can shoot. It is understood that he is to "clean up" the gang of outlaws in Morgan Gap, led by Duke Morgan, with whose pretty niece, Nan, de Spain is in love. Sassoon starts the trouble by a knifing, but de Spain catches him. The laugh is soon turned, though, for Sassoon escapes and soon after de Spain himself is wounded in a fight with about seven of the Morgan gang. He is severely wounded and falls from the horse. The horse runs away, and de Spain is left there unconscious. He is finally discovered by Nan, who cannot forget her resentment even when she sees that he is half dead. Later she learns the true story of his attack by her relatives and from his own lips the reason of his being a gunman. This was that his father was shot in the back by one of the mountaineers and soon after his mother had died from the effects of the shock, leaving him with a birthmark to commemorate his father's tragic death. Nan is won over to his side the more easily that she is already half in love with the handsome gunman. A few days later she helps him escape. Afterwards, although he takes every opportunity for seeing her, they seldom meet and her uncle very nearly succeeds in marrying her to her worthless cousin, Gale Morgan. Duke Morgan is thrown from his horse and seriously hurt. Nan comes to nurse him at the hospital, where de Spain has been since he was shot. De Spain leaves soon after her arrival, but comes to see her under the pretext of bringing supplies. It is while there that she at last surrenders to his pleading and consents to become formally "engaged." Gale learns of the affair and tells Duke. Nan is forced to confess her love for de Spain and her uncle tells her that she will never marry him. Gale wins old Duke's permission to marry Nan and the girl is kept a prisoner in her room until she will consent to marrying her cousin. One night de Spain gets the following message: "Take me away from here as soon as you can." He knows it is from Nan. He rides to the Morgan ranch, and overhears Duke and Gale planning Nan's marriage. He reveals himself and holds the men at bay while he and Nan, who has appeared, escape. Sassoon, a bad man, nearly kills de Spain, but the latter manages to get a successful shot at his enemy and they reach town, where he takes Nan to the home of one of his friends. Henry de Spain learns that old Duke Morgan was the one who killed his father. Nan, broken-hearted, starts back to her uncle to learn the truth. She tries to bring him to de Spain, but they are caught in a blizzard, and only saved by de Spain just as they are about to succumb. Duke tells de Spain that he and Sassoon both shot at his father, but that they never knew which shot proved fatal, and they learned, to their horror soon after, that de Spain was not the man they were after, who had killed a member of their clan. There is a make-shift wedding ceremony performed right there in the snow, for old Duke gives in at last to the lovers, but later at the settlement there is a more elaborate wedding, which serves to unite the two enemy factions.

Arriving at the isolated cabin, she realizes he is an impostor, but his threats intimidate her into silence. Lacking money and protection, she immediately becomes vulnerable to the advances of the largely all-male population, and so must acknowledge Brown publicly as her uncle in order to continue to receive food, shelter, and his protection. Over time, this understanding of mutual convenience turns to affection, and he pledges to reform.

John Graham, capitalist and railroad president, had the reputation of being a hard man, and for once, popular rumor was not far from right. He was a hard man. Hard in his business and hard in his home. Hard to his friends and harder to his enemies. The employees on his road called him "the old skinflint" and John Graham, hearing the term, smiled grimly and went his grasping way. The railroad needed new equipment. The tracks were bad, the roadbed was bad, and the cars were bad. Worst of all, only the most meager sort of precautions were taken for safeguarding the lives of those brought in contact with the road. A discontented, underpaid, overworked force of men slept when they should have been watching and woke to curse the close-fisted tyrant who treated them as mere inhuman cogs. There were a great many accidents on John Graham's railroad, and after each one there would be much argument as to the proper person on whom to fix the blame. Happily, a scapegoat was always found, a sleeping switchman or a drunken engineer, and the public was content, never dreaming of inquiring into the reason why the engineer was drunk or why the switchman slept. The Mills of the Gods grind slowly, and it was some time before the soul of John Graham was found waiting with the rest of the chaff for the inexorable pounding of their relentless stones. First it happened that his daughter, coming home from school, was caught in a wreck from which she only escaped at the price of her eyesight. Later, the report came to John Graham that his wife was injured in a wreck and as he sped to her assistance in his automobile, a freight train crashed into it on an unprotected crossing and John Graham was crippled for life. Helpless as he was physically, Graham still sternly refused to grant the needed improvements. Always he sat in his office with glowing, deep-set eyes and brooded over his cherished dividends. Then at length, one terrible day, the tearful pleading of his wife began to have an effect. He dreamed that the victims of his road passed before him in a pitiful procession, and looked at him with eyes of burning scorn. Their glances seared the very soul of John Graham and he suddenly saw himself as he was. His strong spirit was broken and as John Graham wept, a wonderful light shone on him in his dream, and waked him, the holy light of hope.

A young clerk, a small salary, a wife and child, the child long ill then the doctor's bill and other bills and debts accumulate; the advertisement in the news about borrowing money on your furniture at six per cent. Ah. That's the solution. I'll try it. Yes, he tried it and as the picture unfolds itself we see the clerk careworn and desperate borrowing twenty-five dollars from a loan shark, who compels him to return five of it for drawing up papers. At this the clerk remonstrates and shows the loan shark his own advertisement at six per cent. The shark snarls and snatches back the money, but the child is ill, what can he do but submit and take what he gets and sign that fatal card, which reads that he must pay forty-five dollars for tho loan of twenty-five. He signs it; he has to. Now comes with sickening regularity the dreaded monthly payments. He cannot always meet them, what then? Slowly they go, his watch, her brooch and last, the baby's ring. And next comes the "bawlerout." The clerk at his desk in a large office is told that a woman wishes to see him. She demands a payment, he can't comply, she raises her voice, threatens, heaps imprecations on him, she will not be silenced. The clerk is humiliated before the whole office and the manager discharges him. He plods home and breaks the news to his wife, who comforts him and bids him try again. The clerk succeeds in getting n new position and a kindly, sympathetic employer in whom he confides, when the "bawlerout" next appears. His employer takes him to a loan association, where anyone who is employed and in distress may borrow money at the legal rate of interest. Again, through his employer, the clerk meets the district attorney and tells him of the loan shark who is squeezing money from him, although he has already more than paid the debt. The district attorney investigates and intervenes just in time to prevent the ruffian from taking the very bed from under the clerk's sick child. He also compels him to give back all the usury interest he has received above six per cent.

The story is almost too well known to need repetition; how old Captain Billy Bones, with his scars and his oaths had secured within his old sea chest the map and chart of Treasure Island and knew just where the treasure lay; and how his fellow associates endeavored to obtain them. But Billy Bones died before their scheme was realized and thus the valuable map fell into the hands of Jimmie Hawkins and led up to the search for the treasure. They soiled away for the unknown land with a crew of nineteen. Mutiny breaks out and that famous character, one-legged John Silver, plans and schemes and fights and kills to get possession of the treasure and one by one the band of nineteen dwindles down to six and our hearts are glad when we realize after so many thrilling adventures that the vessel is homeward bound laden with all the treasure that Jimmie Hawkins, the doctor and the squire set out to gain.

Children Who Labor

A foreigner who does not understand the ways of this …
A foreigner who does not understand the ways of this country, applies for work at a mill, but is sent away with the intimation that if has a child at home there will be work for it, but none for himself. We then travel in vision to New York to the home of a wealthy mill owner, to whom an appeal is being made to use his influence against child labor. He indicates that he can do nothing about it, and resents the insinuation that his own child might be one of the unfortunate except for her birth and his protection. His wife shows her interest in the project. We turn to the mill again and find that the foreigner, pushed by his poverty and unable get work himself, finally yields and puts his daughter to work, as the family must have bread. The next thing we see is that Hanscomb, the rich mill owner, has sent his wife and child on a journey, and the little one, getting off the train in a spirit of mischief, is left behind in a small town, which happens to be the same one in which the foreigner, aforementioned, and his family live. The child is found by them, and as they cannot understand each other, his kindly wife takes her home and shares her poor cottage with her. Of course Hanscomb and his wife are frantic and put detectives to work on the case, but without success. Meanwhile things go badly with the foreigner, and he feels that it is necessary to put the stranger to work with his own child. Hanscomb buys the mill and so unconsciously becomes the employer of his own child. Going to look over the new property, he enters the mill just as his own child has fainted and is cared for by her little companion, and so he misses her. She is carried past her own mother at the gate, and Mrs. Hanscomb, touched by the incident, though not knowing, of course, who the strange child is, gets her address and in the evening is there with the footman with a basket of food for the little sufferer. Of course there is a reunion. Mr. Hanscomb is sent for and finds that his little daughter has learned a lesson that he has not as yet. She refuses to be taken away by herself and insists that all the other little children be set free from their slavery. He is unable to refuse her request and the film story closes with the better conditions put into effect, though we are reminded at the end that the condition called "Child Labor" still exists and demands our attention.
