A man and two women, suspected of stealing bonds, are traced to a country hotel. While Judith, one of the women, is out horseback riding, the other two, Walter and Vera, are arrested. When, during a storm, Judith is injured in a fall from her horse, Boone Pendleton comes to her rescue. Soon the river becomes impassable, and they are trapped in Boone's cabin, where the two fall in love. Because of her plight, Judith refuses Boone's proposal of marriage, though, and after the river recedes, when detectives come for her, she escapes and then aids Walter and Vera in breaking out of jail. Taking refuge at Walter's country estate, they are again intercepted by the detectives. It is then revealed that Judith is Walter's sister and that the theft was his first offense; Judith and his wife Vera were helping him to escape punishment. When Walter returns the bonds, charges are dropped, and Judith is free to marry Boone.

His Punishment

Day after day O'Hara watched the roses wither on the cheeks of his daughter, Cathleen. And his longing to free her from the drudgery and danger of her work in no wise decreased when with the suddenness of fate an accident at her machine almost took her from him entirely. The foreman, observed, understood, and filed the knowledge in his memory for future use in the pitiless game for gain. When the employer's persistent refusal to install safety devices had threatened to precipitate a strike which he could ill afford; when to save his contracts he had been forced to submit to their demands of arbitration, and O'Hara had been chosen as the representative of his fellow workers, then the foreman realized that the opportunity for use of the knowledge he had gained was at hand. Though other demands might be acceded to, the very marrow of the bone of contention, the installation of safety devices must be passed through in the employer's favor, and for the purpose of bribing the delegate, a stated sum had been allowed the foreman, "enough to send Cathleen to school," was the bait the tempter offered. The foreman used his weapons well. When O'Hara left for the conference next day he carried with him, along with the good wishes of the workers he was to betray, a burden of conscience. And fifteen minutes later a messenger, hearing the news of Cathleen's injury, was hurrying after. Realizing how the news would affect O'Hara's decision, the foreman decided to stop the messenger. An exciting race ensued. Money's might was again brought into play. The messenger was delayed and arrived too late. O'Hara had signed away the rights of his fellow workers. At the bedside of his daughter, Cathleen, O'Hara realizes his mistake, when the foreman tendered him the price of betrayal, of love and of his conscience.

The Clerk

John Gray was the confidential clerk of William Hendricks, a banker, who had amassed considerable wealth by various dubious methods. The clerk did not approve of his employer's business methods, but lacked the courage to seek another position. Into Gray's life came his first romance in the person of the new office stenographer, a pretty young girl. She accorded him a frank liking, and he dared to dream of the time when she would be his wife. His masterful employer, however had noticed the girl's attractions, and flattered her by his attentions, and she became his wife. The clerk, his romance blasted, yet felt that her future would be far more secure as the banker's wife. As the years passed the business of the firm declined, and to save himself from ruin the banker defrauded his creditors by concealing parts of his assets. The clerk was an accomplice to the act, and knew that if detected it meant prison for them both. But when Mrs. Hendricks died, alone and neglected, while her husband drank with a boon companion, the mouse-like characteristics of the clerk died, and he became a man. To punish the man who had cared too little for the woman he loved, the clerk revealed evidence which sent his employer to prison, and although it meant his own punishment, he did so gladly, for he had ceased to care for life the day that his loved one died.
