The College Widow

Atwater and Hingham are two rival colleges in the Middle West, …
Atwater and Hingham are two rival colleges in the Middle West, and Hingham has for several seasons bested Atwater at football. There is a well-grounded impression that Atwater's weakness on the Gridiron must be attributed to the inherent opposition of its president, Dr. Witherspoon, who has a notion that Atwater, being a Presbyterian institution, should play gentle and unbloody football, and. moreover, that the members of the squad must attend recitations. Fortunately, however, football has two enthusiastic champions in the president's daughter, Jane, known as "The College Widow" because she bids farewell to her fiancé at every commencement, and Mrs. Dalzelle, a grass widow, who is the convenient and unwatchful chaperone of all the young women who have the entree of the Atwater Campus. These two, after much earnest argument, succeed in convincing the doctor that true college supremacy can only be attained through the excellence of its football team, and the paramount consideration is the defeat of Hingham, a Baptist institution, not far distant. The Atwater eleven, under the charge of Jack Larrabee, a graduate coach, and Matty McGowan, a professional trainer, proves so hopeless as a possible conqueror of Hingham, that Stub Tallmadge, an undergraduate, is sent abroad to search for new athletic timber. After many peregrinations among the farms and manufacturing towns he succeeds in unearthing a young giant named Murphy, who seems to have every qualification and being totally unschooled. It is arranged that he shall enter Atwater as a special student in a course of art, but even the ponderous Murphy is not potent enough to pull the team out of the rut into which it has fallen, and further building up of the team becomes more and more of a necessity every day. Comes there at this time to Atwater a millionaire named Bolton, whose son has for three years been the unapproachable half-back of Hingham, and the arrival of the two creates great enthusiasm among the college athletes. But when it is discovered that Billy's presence with his father is only to secure the services of a tutor, to squeeze him through the fourth freshman year so that he may claim to have spent four years at college, the consternation in Atwater knows no bounds. Coach Larrabee determines to secure the famous halfback at all hazards, and although he is supposed to be almost engaged to Jane Witherspoon, he evolves a plot by which she shall work her wiles upon Billy Bolton, and induce him to enter Atwater as a regular student. This, as usual, proves to be no difficult task, for poor Billy falls in love with Jane at first sight. His father is a long-time patron of Hingham, which institution has often conferred honorary degrees upon him in return for financial assistance, and before leaving Atwater for a quick trip to Europe, he leaves a check for $1,000 in his office as a bet that Atwater cannot beat Hingham in the Thanksgiving game. But he has not reckoned on the wonderful deftness of the college widow as a temptress, for, no sooner has he sailed from New York, when she induces his son to resign from Hingham and become half-back for Atwater. "The plans of mice and men gang aft aglee," however, and in luring the love of the great Hingham star, she falls deeply in love with him herself. On the night of the victory, when he won his game almost by his own exertions, At water is ablaze with lights and fireworks, and the students despoil many stores of their signs and fences of their gates. Then it is that for the first time he discovers that he has been made the dupe of a flirt and decides upon moving west with his father, where even mention of the very name of Atwater would not be possible. At the same time, Jack Larrabee discovers that his plot has become a veritable boomerang, for it has resulted in losing forever the love of Jane Witherspoon, A great celebration of the victory is arranged for the evening of the game at a hotel near the college and while the merry band of revelers are dancing about the mighty bonfire, these disclosures are made, and two fathers announce that their children shall go to the west together. During the progress of the banquet which is to terminate the festivities of the day an accident happens in the kitchen which causes a rapid and devastating conflagration and the guests escape death only after the most superhuman efforts, many of them being compelled to walk through fire or jump from windows into fire nets. To the horror of all, it is announced that Jane has become lost in the scramble for the two stairways and is in the burning building. Billy has been injured by a leap from a window, but Jack Larrabee offers to risk his life to save Jane. The firemen and police, however, assure him that such an effort would be nothing less than a plunge to death, and mass in front of the burning doorway to prevent him from entering. Calling upon his football team, a wedge is formed, which ploughs a way through the massed firemen. Jack feels his way through the fire and smoke, and places his lost love in her more worthy lover's arms.

John Burkett Ryder is a …
John Burkett Ryder is a master of finance with a boundless desire for wealth. No mean avarice, but a love of the power to be gained through riches, a domineering will and an unscrupulous soul. Previous to the opening of the story Ryder has compassed the financial ruin and professional disgrace of Judge Rossmore, of the Supreme Court, to avenge himself for certain adverse decisions which the judge has rendered against the corporation. Shirley Rossmore, the judge's daughter, and young Jefferson Ryder returning from Europe on the same boat, have met and register a pretty story interest in each other, being at the time entirely ignorant of the friction now existing between their respected fathers. Shirley has written a novel, and from Jefferson's description of his father has made the star character of the story a fair prototype of the master of finance. Ryder, without consulting his son's wishes, has already announced an engagement between Jefferson and the daughter of Senator Roberts. Shirley Rossmore's book which is written under the pseudonym of Sarah Green gets into Ryder's house and makes such an impression that the great financier employs a detective to find the author. Sarah Green is found and Ryder employs her to compile his biography, not dreaming that she is the daughter of the judge he has ruined. Now comes the battle between the Lion and the Mouse. The Mouse wins the Lion's admiration by the outspoken audacity of her opinion of his life and moral code. Kate Roberts, whom Ryder had selected to be his son's fiancée, elopes with his aristocratic private secretary, "Fourth groom of the bed chamber to the second Prince of England." Ryder, to pacify his son and to offset his attachment for Shirley Rossmore, suggests that he marry Sarah Green, "who has proved herself far more brilliant than the judge's girl." It is then Shirley's turn; she declares her identity and admits that she has secured certain letters from Ryder's desk that will prove her father's innocence. Ryder orders her from the house, then he sits up all night, consumes innumerable black cigars and finally conquers his own vanity. Next day Jefferson Ryder proposes, but Shirley declares that she will never marry a man that has such a father. With bitter words, Jefferson denounces his father; he tells him that the girl he loves objects to the family. But John Burkett Ryder eats a big slice of humble pie; he announces that he will prevent the impeachment of Judge Rossmore and implores Shirley to accept his son. The Mouse has conquered the Lion.

Parson Burroughs who owns …
Parson Burroughs who owns the shay, spends much of his time courting widow Hubbard. The parson discovers that he has a dangerous rival in the person of Abe Hobbs. Meanwhile, the widow's daughter, Ethel, falls in love with Harry Smith. The widow's objections to Harry lead to clandestine love meetings between the young people. At Aunt Dinah's quilting party the parson "puts one over" on Hobbs by escorting the widow to the party. After the assemblage breaks up, Hobbs hurries outside to invite the widow to ride home in his rig. But the one-horse shay stood right in front of Aunt Dinah's house, and when the parson asked permission to drive the widow home she accepted. Hobbs, not to be outdone, invites the village Justice of the Peace to jump in his rig and drive with him to the letter's office. Here he secures a marriage license and starts back to the widow's home. The parson and the widow arrive ahead of him to discover that Ethel and Harry have just eloped. A farmhand tells them the direction the runaways have taken and the old folks start in hot pursuit. Hobbs, armed with a marriage license and wedding ring, arrives immediately after their departure, and decides to follow them. Ethel and Harry speed down to the Justice of Peace office. The widow and parson are almost upon the elopers when "all at once the horse stood still." The parson and widow find themselves seated in the roadway, the parson half-stunned, holding on stupidly to the horse reins, while the widow, her back to his, is sprawled, half dazed, in the road. The widow staggers to her feet and starts up the road to return on foot to her home. With the widow in this frame of mind, Abe Hobbs overtakes her in his buggy. He proposes, is accepted on the spot, and he persuades the widow to go to the parson at once. They retrace their steps in the buggy to where the parson, surrounded by the villagers stands gazing foolishly at the little heap on the ground. He nearly drops dead when Hobbs and the widow drive up, display ring and license, and ask to be married. But the old lovers insist, and the Parson digs down into the wreckage to find his Bible. Then with the widow and Hobbs standing in their buggy, he marries them. As he pronounces them man and wife, Harry and Ethel enter, with the announcement that they have been to the Justice of Peace and have been married. It is up to the old folks to forgive them, and they do so.
