A newly-married pair have set up housekeeping in an apartment. The young wife is devoted to bridge and insists on entertaining her club friends at the expense of the comfort of her young husband. When her young husband returns from his work for lunch she forces him to eat on a corner of the kitchen table, and, although she has been preparing an elaborate lunch for her guests, she forces him to be satisfied with a can of beans. He rebels at this constant diet of beans and fills an empty can with gravel, a new label on it taken from another can of beans, sets the can on the shelf and departs for lunch. The bridge party arrives, enjoys the day and discusses a big burglary reported. The ladies all insist that the hostess take charge of their jewels and put them in the safety deposit vault box which she owns. She accepts the trust and while waiting an opportunity to go to the vault hides the jewels in an empty can which she labels "Beans." These jewels she leaves for a moment while dressing for the street, and her cook, who discovers them as she is about to treat the ice man to a light lunch of canned beans. They both decide that the master and mistress are the thieves and begin a system of espionage that has its embarrassments for all parties. The young bride sets forth for the safety vault, carrying the can of gravel by mistake, and is followed by the two "detectufs," meets her husband on the way, explains her mission and he laughs at her, but she goes on and he, continuing on his way toward home, discovers the cook and ice man following her. He discovers the jewels in a can which they are carrying, learns the facts as well as the suspicions that exist and plays a joke on all parties concerned that has a back-fire to it in the fact that he is compelled to eat the can of gravel before he gets through. Of course, there is a happy ending and a readjustment of values, in which the young bride forswears bridge and beans.

Sir Arthur Braham and his wife have been happily married for about five years, during the last two of which, however, he has become so engrossed in political affairs that he has almost entirely neglected her. Wearying of the ordinary routine of society, the wife turns eagerly to the new cause, Woman Suffrage. Cecil Tudor, a professed believer in the cause and a political rival of Sir Arthur, has been trying to force his attentions upon Sir Arthur's wife. Cecil realizes that if he could make it appear that Sir Arthur is secretly in league with the militants he would defeat him at the polls. Sir Arthur has been bitter toward the women's cause and they fall easily into a plan to wreck his political career. The destruction of a series of warehouses is the first step in their plan. They aim to throw the city and country into a state of famine. Their next step is to kidnap Sir Arthur's child. This is done without the knowledge of his wife. The life of the child is threatened by Cecil unless Sir Arthur signs a certain bill advocating the Cause. When the wife discovers the loss of her child she turns against her allies and pleads for its return. They refuse, believing the Cause more important, and in order to push their purposes they make a prisoner of her. Sir Arthur, now aroused, turns Scotland Yard on the search. The baby is rescued, and, after many thrilling events, a reconciliation is brought about between husband and wife.

Miracle Mary

Miracle Mary, the little sergeant, is called. She has rescued …
Miracle Mary, the little sergeant, is called. She has rescued Shorty, a twice convicted burglar. The little door in the south wall of the criminal branch of the Supreme Court opens and a Central Office detective strides into the room, his right wrist handcuffed to the left wrist of a burglar, who trailed a step behind. The case of the people against Joseph Condon, alias "Little Joe," alias "Idaho Shorty," charged with burglary, was called for trial. A stool pigeon had accused him of having committed a third burglary, though at the time when the crime was perpetrated Shorty had been doing odd jobs in the aviation fields. The third conviction would mean a life term in Sing Sing. He pleaded innocent. Mary was his only witness. Shorty is convicted and the soul of Mary sings a hymn of sadness as she makes her way along the lonely road toward the imprisoned man she loves. But Mary has faith in the line, "Then shalt thou call and the Lord shall answer; thou shalt cry and He shall say, here I am." Months pass and Shorty remains in prison because he has failed to secure an alibi. Mary writes to him of a vision that she has had: that one Christmas a miracle will be performed. On Christmas Day, the warden, in the spirit of the holiday, permits the couple to be together a great deal. There is a performance in the evening. Mary keeps up his courage, but at night Shorty becomes more despondent, not having the faith that the girl has. Then came the great treat that was to close the show and bring an end to Christmas Day. The last one was to show the progress made in aerial exploration. "Splendid flights of aviators at Hempstead Plains. Long Island, June 20th," read the title of the moving picture. There is a gang of laborers in the foreground. There is whispered conversations. Miracle Mary is on her feet. "The Miracle." Again her voice lifted, shaking, but carrying to every corner of the great hall, "The Miracle." There it is in the movies. You all see Shorty there and the date is June 20. The picture proves his alibi, though the foreman did refuse to identify Shorty in the trial. That night the warden telegraphs the state of affairs to the Governor of New York at Albany.

Harvey Hamilton was not satisfied to remain in Missouri on the farm, but wanted to "see" New York. So his father sent him to visit his uncle, explaining in a letter that Harvey was meek and modest and very unsophisticated. With his carpet-bag containing his few belongings, Harvey started on his journey, reaching the house of his uncle when a party was in progress in honor of the visit of Dorothy Deane, a friend of his cousin, May. Now Percy, his cousin, liked Dorothy, but she was not a silly girl and just had a good time while visiting her friend. Upon reaching the house, Harvey did not wait to be admitted, but pranced into the room where all the guests were assembled. His uncle was overcome to see him walk deliberately into the room and was rather cool when he greeted him. May and her brother, Claude, were also a little cool, but Dorothy was kind and very cordial in her greeting. This appealed to Harvey and he immediately classed her as his friend. The Hamiltons planned to play tricks on Harvey. First they tried him at poker, but much to their surprise the boy from Missouri had played it before, and Claude and his father were glad to make an excuse to get away when all the chips were piled up in front of Harvey. Next they planned to get him drunk, but Claude fell under the influence and Harvey had to bring him home. His folks were furious with Harvey for getting Claude in such a condition. Dorothy had many a laugh at Claude and she admired Harvey more and more. At last Harvey got up his nerve and made love to her just as Claude was coming in the door. Claude reprimanded Harvey for stealing his girl, but Harvey promptly put him out of the door, and took Dorothy along with him into the hall and to the minister's where, after the ceremony was over, the Hamiltons found them, but too late.

Henry Warburton and his wife, Isobel, were a young married couple who supposedly did, by their friends, "live happy ever after." But this was not so. Isobel was a sort of butterfly. She loved her husband and was true to him, but she liked to be admired by everyone and did not like to sit and wait for her husband to finish his work to take her out, so she went out with other fellows. At first Warburton was very willing that she do this, knowing her love for him and understanding that she just loved society and fun. After a while he grew tired of it and complained to his wife and ordered her not to do it again. While at the office one day, he needed a certain paper which was at home. He hurriedly telephoned his wife to bring the paper to his office. She had something else to do first and did not think about hurrying with the paper. Thus a deal was lost through her lack of interest. When she left the office her husband watched her go from the window and to his amazement, saw her stand and talk with a gentleman on the street and then walk off with him. His jealousy was aroused and he followed. He saw the gentleman walk to the house, and in the door. Had he but known that it was just a friend, or that his wife put him out of the house, when he told her he really eared for her, the troubles of Henry Warburton would have soon been at an end, but he suspicioned his wife instead, and this led to a disagreement and at last to a separation. Too late, Isobel, saw her mistakes of the past; how she really neglected her husband thoughtlessly and what trouble it had brought upon them. She wrote for forgiveness, but was refused. At last driven to desperation, she 'phones to him the last appeal to forgive. He was still hard and unyielding and so with his ear at the 'phone, he heard the answer of her last appeal as it came to her. A shot and all was still after a faint good-bye. Now too late for Warburton, he saw his mistake and was left to go on alone.

Jack could sing, and he and Mary, the daughter, would sing and play, to the delight of the boarders, while Albert would wander off in disgust. Many times was Albert forced out of the conversation by his rival, and he decided to get even. He was going along the street, when he saw two seedy looking pieces of humanity, and it was then that a thought struck him to get even. Taking the one bum by the arm, he took him to his room, dressed him up in his clothes and introduced him as his friend, a count from Paris. The boarding house keeper told Jack to give up his place to the count. Not being used to such a nice maid, "Happy," as he was called, proceeded to make love to the maid, but was called down by Albert, and soon turned his attentions to Mary. As soon as the meal was over he ordered a touring car and took them all out riding. This, of course, was Albert's money, and he, not daring to refuse, had to go along. Next he took them all to dinner, and it was Albert's money again. So he went on spending money lavishly. Albert in the meantime was getting tired of his bargain, but the landlady and her daughter had already begun to like the "count" for himself alone. Finally, when he used all of Albert's money. It was time for Albert to say something. Coming into the room where the count was talking to the housekeeper and her daughter, he started to tell them who the count really is, but they would not hear of it.

The Rev. Jones and his wife awaited the arrival of their son from college with delight. Rev. Jones had a friend of his boyhood days by the name of Smythe who was a business man. Smythe was a man who loved society as did his wife. They had one daughter, Gladys who went to boarding school. She too was expected home. Gladys arrived with two friends whom the friendly Mrs. Smythe soon made comfortable. Soon after, Tom, the minister's son arrived; his friends began to drop in and when Mr. and Mrs. Jones went out to a meeting Tom and his friends indulged in a friendly game of cards and enjoyed themselves thoroughly. How horrified were the parents when they found Tom liked "worldly things!" The Rev. Jones immediately decided that he should not enter the ministry and sent him with a letter of introduction to the house of his friend Smythe, asking him to place him in business. The Smythes were just enjoying themselves and while in the midst of the fun the butler announced that "the minister's son" had arrived. Not knowing the circumstances under which he had been sent to their home and thinking him a pious, good "little fellow," a deep gloom set over them as well as their faces. He was received in a solemn manner. He being full of fun and finding them so quiet, thought they were shy and home-loving people and immediately adopted the pious air. One day Tom met a couple of old friends in a tavern near the Smythe home and decided that at his first opportunity he would invite them over for a good time. This opportunity soon occurred when one night the Smythes, who were going to a dance, came down stairs in full evening dress and walked into the room where Tom was laughingly admiring a picture of a dancing girl. In an instant he put it in his pocket but not before it had been seen by Bess, one of the friends of Gladys. He immediately concocted a story which moved him to tears as well as his consolers. It was the picture of a dead school friend and he felt sad. Of course then he would not feel like attending "the Biblical lecture" No, he felt too bad. This made the Smythes and their friends happy and they hurried off to the dance. As soon as the door had slammed, up jumped Tom, telephoned to his friend to come over and have a good time. It was while they were in the midst of their game when the Smythes came home from the party to find the butler had retired, after being pressed to do so by Tom, by means of a good tip. Upon hearing the noise in the library they opened the door and found the boys smoking and playing cards. Then the game was up. Each found that they had been "acting" and decided they would all have a good time together hereafter.

Mary was possessed by one idea; she longed to pose as a lady. Unfortunately for Mary, she was only Mrs. Tadbury's maid of all work and therefore her ambition seemed hopeless. Finally, however, the opportunity unfolded itself for the maid to impersonate her mistress and Mary was not one bit slow in grasping it. She took quite a little social whirl, went on a joy ride with a wealthy clubman and succeeded in weaving a web of circumstantial evidence around poor Mrs. Tadbury, that came nearly causing a divorce suit in the Tadbury household. The wealthy clubman, Charles Webb, also came in for his share of trouble, receiving some very rough treatment at the hands of the irate Mr. Tadbury. Mary came to grief, at last, and realized the full meaning of the test, "Pride goeth before a fall and vanity before destruction."
